It's a Love Story

Seeing Juliet: Sneaking Out


(Bella's POV)

It didn't take long for Alice to drop me off at my house. I gathered up my dress and stepped out of her car.

"Thanks Alice. I had a great time." I said when i turned back around.

"Oh, i know you did." She smirked at me before rolling up the window and began to pull out of the drive way. Alice flashed me a smile then drove away.

I gathered up the dress again then walked inside and up the stairs Charlie was already asleep in his room, snoring loudly. I entered my room and headed straight to the closet. I got out a grey tank top and a pair of black and pink plaid pajama pants to change into. I found the bag for the dress then got in bed.

1 hour later

I leaned up in my bed, suddenly awake. I looked around the room until my eyes finally landed on my alarm clock. It told me it was one o'clock in the morning.

"One o'clock! I only slept an hour and i'm already awake!" I started searching my room for what could have dragged me away from my sleep. Finally, when i couldn't find anything, i sat down in my rocking chair by the window.

Thump, thump, thump

Something was thrown against the window. I got up from the chair and opened it up. There, standing outside, underneath the tree was Edward. Part of hiim was hidden in the shade of the tree, the other part shown in the moonlight. He was changed into a pair of jeans, a white t-shirt, and tennis shoes. One of his hands were curled around what looked like a large rock. I looked closer and realized they were pebbles.

you were Romeo

you were throwing pebbles

"Edward?! What are you doing here?" I yelled to him. He smiled then turned towards the tree and started to climb it. He made his way to the branch that had somehow ended up growing all the way up to my window.

"I wanted to know if you'd like to go somewhere with me."

"At one o 'clock in the morning?"

"I guess it wasn't one of my brightest ideas. So, will you come?"

"Sure, just let me change." He smiled then climbed down the tree. As soon as his feet touched the ground i pulled down the window and rushed over to my closet. I grabbed a dark blue shirt and a pair of jeans. I quickly put them on, then my patch print converses. I brushed my tangled hair and opened the window. Looking down, i saw Edward at the base of the tree. He smiled at me as i made my way down.

Dropping down beside him, i asked, "So where are we going?"

"How about to the garden at the country club? I head you liked it there."

"Where'd you hear that from?"

"Alice."

"Of course. So how are we going to get there?"

"I have my car parked around the corner, we can drive from there." So that's how we ended up walking down an abandoned street in the dead of the night during the summer. Finally we reached his car and continued down the road. Soon, we were parking down the street from the country club.

"How come we didn't park in front of the club?" I asked him.

"Because the cleaners would catch us. This way all we have to do is jump the fence."

"Jump the fence? It sounds like you've done this before." I looked at him curiously, but all he did was turn his head to the approaching fence. Thankfully i wasn't barbwire and just a regular metal fence.

"You can climb a fence can't you?" He asked. I ignored him as i set my foot into one of the holes. Once i was high enough, i pushed my self up and swung my legs over the top, then letting go once i did. A perfect landing. I turned around to face him, completely noticing the look of astonishment on his face.

"Looks like i can. How about you?" He smirked then started up the fence and copied my jump.

"Impressive." I nodded. "But still not as good as me." After saying that, i took off running towards the big willow tree. Edward chased after me all the way, ony a few feet behind me as he did. I grabbed a hold of the branches adn climbed my way to the very top.

Poking my head throug a break in the vines, i overlooked the garden. Closing my eyes and leaning my head back, i let out a consented sigh. In that moment of peace, i had completely forgotten about Edward.

"It's nice to see you smile like that. you should do it more often." He said from behind me. I jumped some before turning around and blushing.

"That too." i could feel the blush deepen as i duckd under the cover of the strands of leves all around us. Only a few seconds lager did Edward join me.

"So spidermonkey, what do you want to do?"

"What? Why did you call me spidermonkey?"

"From the way you climbed up the tree and got to the top that quick. You reminded me of a spidermonkey."

"Sure you're not talking about yourself? You were pretty quick too."

"But i climb a lot. No offense, but you don't look like much of a hiker or climber."

"Excuse you? The only reason i don't climb or hike is because of the rain, and i really don't feel like flying an airplane to some where where i can. Besides, why does it matter to you?"

"It doesn't, i was just wondering."

"Well next time try asking instead of just assuming. You don't know anything about me." I started lowering myself down to another branch when he grabbed my arm.

"But i want to. Bella, you are the most intersting, exquisite, beautiful thing that i have ever seen. Look, i'm sorry for what i said hurting your feelings. I didn't mean to, honst." His eyes grasped hold of mine and it was obvious that he meant what he said.

"Fine. So how about playing 20 questions? That way we can get to know each other." I compromised.

"Sounds perfect." He smiled at me, and i immediately smiled back. I climbed back up onto the branch beside him.

"You first." He said.

"Okay, start with the questions."

"What's your favorite color? Book? Song? Writer? Movie? Band or artist? Food? Drink? STore? Restaurant? Artist?"

"Alright! Alright! I get it!" I laughed at his rushness. All he did was stare at me with incredulity.

"Sorry, i didn't realize you were that anxious to get to know me."

"Just answer the questions."

"Well my favorite color changes every day."

"What is it today?" I looked into his eyes and blurted. "Green." I immediately blushed and turned away.

"What is it?"

"Nothing. Just continue."

"Okay. Well, what's your favorite book?"

"Wuthering Heights. I've read it multiple times. I can actually quote the book."

"Wow. Next is...." It continued like that for the next few hours until he finally drove me home. He waited until i was safe in my room, him on the branch, to say, "So i'll see you tomorrow night? Same time?"

"Yes, and how about eleven instead. I'm exhausted. Thank god tomorrow's saturday."

"Then how about we meet for lunch?"

"Sure, sound perfect." We smiled at each other as he climbed down. He was still me as he moved to his car.

"Bye Romeo." I called to him.

"Bye Juliet."
