Not Alone

Chapter 10


Oh. My. God. Kissing Alice Cullen is the best feeling in the whole world. I press harder against her lips and tangle one hand in her hair. I feel her smile and I can't help my own from reaching my lips. After a moment I feel the burning sensation coming from my chest… right I need air. I pull back, but leave my eyes closed and rest my forehead against hers. I feel her hand cupping my cheek as she rubs a thumb gently across my cheek. I open my eyes to see her golden orbs looking into me. I smile gently and she returns it. I lean in and kiss her gently once more.

"I'm happy that we weren't interrupted this time." I say and she laughs.

"Me, too."

"Cause, you probably would have a dead sibling." She laughs again and shakes her head.

"Esme would be so upset." She whispers.

"She'd get over it." I growl and pull her in for another kiss. She chuckles but doesn't resist. Just as I am about to run out of air she pulls away. And because I am pitiful, I whimper at the loss of contact. She laughs at me again. "You shouldn't laugh at me." She arches an eyebrow at me. "If you do, I shall have to take necessary actions." She snorts.

"Yeah, like what?" I smirk.

"You'll find out…eventually." I laugh when she pouts.

"That isn't fair, Bella."

"Don't laugh at me and you won't have to find out." I pause and for some reason Emmett pops into my head. "Speaking of not finding out, what do you have on Emmett? Cause I really want to know." She starts to laugh really hard.

"Nope, I promised Emmett that I wouldn't tell anyone. And that includes my girlfriend." She says and I can't stop my jaw from dropping and my eyebrows getting lost in my hairline.

"Oh, uh, yeah. I get it." I say blushing and looking away.

"Bella, what's wrong?" She pauses and it seems to dawn on her because she looks away. "I mean, you don't have to be my girlfriend if you don't want to, I just thought that…" she trails off and I chuckle lowly.

"Oh, I definitely want to be, I just was… surprised is all, I've never had any friends, beside Samantha, let alone a significant other." I feel her eyes on my and I look into her golden eyes, and I can see joy in them as well as love. "Now what are we going to do about school?" I ask leaning my head back, but when I get no response I look at Alice. She is looking away from me, but I can see the slump in her shoulders.

"Hey. What's wrong? We don't have to tell everyone, I'm okay with that." I say even though I'm really not. She looks up at me, and I can see the hope in her eyes.

"Nothing is wrong, I just wasn't sure that you would want everyone at school to know." She asks not meeting my eyes. I tilt her face up so that she is looking at me.

"I want everyone to know. That way no one will try and take you away from me. And so that I can do this in public." I whisper before I lean in and kiss her gently.
