Another Cinderella

The Asking

(Bella's POV)

Ring, ring!

Everybody was standing up and leaving the classroom. I took my time getting my things, knowing what was coming next.

"Bella? Can I ask you something?" Asked Edward. Here we go.

"You just did, Edward." I said, trying to stall. He got a little annoyed though.

"You know what I mean, Bella."

"Okay. You can ask something."

"I was wondering if you would have dinner with me tonight. I wanted to make up for yesterday afternoon. And I promise that it will be as friends only." He explained. Too bad I already knew the truth, other wise, I might have actually believed him.

"You do know you asked that yesterday? And I said that you had to prove yourself first. I'd say that you didn't really do a good job of that."

"I know, but this is to make up for it. And it's just as friends."

"I'll give you a chance to make up for yesterday. But only as friends. And if you try anything, you can count on my avoiding you." I warned. He didn't seem to care, as long as i said yes.

"Great, I'll pick you up at your house this afternoon."

"Actually, Alice invited me over. So i'll be at your house." That seemed to make him smile, the same gorgeous smile from yesterday. I need to get a hold of myself! This is crazy!

"We better be leaving for our next class, or we might be late." I told him quickly. I didn't really want to go to gym, but I wanted to get away from him as fast as I could.

"Okay. I'll see you later tonight." Once I was out in the hallway, I raced to the gym. I really needed to think. And I couldn't do it while knowing I was going to be late for class. I got there just in time. I changed quickly and got in the gym right before the tardy bell rang.

"Today class, we're going to..." Started the coach. I just ignored the rest. I couldn't get my mind off Edward.
