Chapter Twenty-Two: Meeting Nessie

Mike Newton had been found in his cell by the guards. He had hung himself. Bella felt sorry for his family – she knew his parents, they were good people. Rose and Jake didn’t share her sympathy. They’d each thrown back a shot each with a muttered ‘good riddance’.

Speaking of Jake, finding out he had been a shapeshifter had most certainly been a surprise. Neither girl could quite believe that he had managed to keep it from them – they both applauded him on that.

“Are you even listening to a word I’m saying?” Rose said to Bella in an exasperated tone as Jake wiped the bar down with an amused smile on his face.

“What?” Bella said embarrassed as Esme laughed and gathered up some dirty plates from the table. Her thoughts had given no more clues to her guilt regarding Edna’s death but Bella hadn’t been digging particularly hard.

“Go on,” Rose began. “Go and make out with Edward. We can clean up. I’m sure Jake can give me a lift home.”

Bella bit her lip. “Thank you!” She grabbed her coat and threw a goodbye over her shoulder to everyone else. She couldn’t wait to see him. He’d been very busy over the last week so they hadn’t had much time together. His accounting business had started to get a few customers and he’d helped Emmett with his case of fraud.

Bella spent the majority of the drive over thinking about Edward and how he was just… amazing. He was sweet, kind, attentive, loving and everything any woman could ever want in a man.

When she got to his house, it took all of Bella’s strength not to run up to the door, burst in, lay herself on the floor and demand that Edward ravish her.

Showing some self-restraint she knocked on the door and willed herself to be patient whilst at the same time, trying to encourage Edward to answer the door faster. She had a large smile on her face at the thought of seeing her boyfriend.

Her smile quickly disappeared though when the door was answered by a young girl with copper hair.

“Can I help you?” she asked.

Chapter One

Edward flicked through the sheet music in his folder. He was feeling inspired to play something when he got home, but he wasn’t quite sure what. 

He heard a truck pull to a stop at the curbside in front of him and looked up to see his smiling best friend peering at him from inside the mechanical beast. 

“Thanks, Rose,” he said in lieu of a greeting as he clambered in. “My test is next week so fingers crossed I can stop asking for rides.” 

Rose just shook her head. “Assuming you pass your test… or do you think another old lady will jump out in front of the car?” The teasing was evident in her tone. 

“She did!” Edward defended. 

“How’s your mom?” Rose asked as she drove around the block and then towards Edward’s apartment with his mom. 

“She’s acting weird,” Edward told her. “She said she wants to talk to me when I get home.” 

“Do you know what she wants to talk to you about?” 

“No clue.” 

His mother, Esme, who was an artist, had raised Edward. His father had died when his mom was pregnant with him, but his mom was more than enough. Her friend, Carlisle, had also helped raise him. Carlisle was like a father to him. 

“Maybe she’s got a big commission coming up?” 

Edward shrugged his shoulders. “I don’t know. She’s not been painting a lot lately, and that usually means something’s on her mind.” 

“I’m sure it’s nothing serious.” When Rose saw Edward was worrying the edge of his sweater, she leaned across the cab and gently placed her hand on his. “Whatever it is, it’s going to be fine.” 

Edward smiled at this comfort. Rose had been his best friend since childhood. This girl had bullied him for wearing glasses. She’d thrown them off his face and into the dirt, laughing as Edward scrabbled around to find them. Rose had walked over and pushed the girl down, telling her to leave him alone. She’d always looked out for him—even now.

Chapter Twenty: Burn

“Have you got any plans for the rest of the day?” Bella asked Mike as he drove along the road to her house.

He shook his head. “Not really.”

Bella watched as a bead of sweat ran from his forehead down his cheek before slipping under the collar of his t-shirt. It was hot but the air conditioning was on.

“Are you alright?” she asked, watching as he shifted in his chair and his hands gripped at the steering wheel.

“I’m fine,” he told Bella sharply.

She didn’t believe him.

Don‘t think of anything. Don’t think of anything. Don’t think about it. Don’t think. The alphabet… recite the alphabet – A, B, C – Charlie…

His thoughts disturbed her and she was assaulted with violent images; Mike creeping into their house, hiding as he heard someone come around the corner and then jumping out and stabbing the person. Horror filled his mind as he realised that it wasn’t Bella or Rose, it was Charlie. He didn’t stop though, he kept stabbing, too afraid that if Charlie survived he’d tell them it was him.

The image changed and Bella saw a young girl with flaming red hair and pale green eyes. “Why would you do that Maggie? I thought we were in love.”

I started this before I met you. I’m a blood donor for vampires and you need to deal with it. There’s nothing sexual about it – I just feed them.” Bella could see through Mike’s eyes that he’d spotted the bites on her.

It’s wrong!” Mike shouted back. Bella could feel this anger through his memories. “They’re not natural!”

We can talk about this when you’re ready to have a grown-up conversation.” Maggie turned away from him and Bella watched in horror as Mike’s hand reached out and grabbed her bushy hair, pulling her back against him.

We’re going to talk about this now!” he told her angrily. Maggie struggled as Mike wrapped an arm around her waist as his other restrained her arm. He ran his fingers up her pale skin, stopping when he got to her wrist to run his fingers over the two raised marks that were there.

His arm around her waist moved up to her neck and he began to squeeze it gently, increasing the pressure until Maggie began to struggle, flailing and kicking her legs as she tried to escape.

It was no use – Mike was lean and working on a building site for several years had given him strength. She was only a slip of a girl. She didn‘t stand a chance.
