| As she walked into the class, her eyes instinctively went to the chair next to her own. She had been preparing herself for it to be vacant, but much to her surprise, it was occupied. Her heart swelled instantly, and she let out a long over due breathe, having not realized that she had been holding it. He sat there, looking back at her, with an amused smile on his lips, as though he’d been waiting to see her reaction. The corners of his lips twitched slightly, and she figured that he was probably pleased with it. A part of her had figured it had all been a dream, that she had dreamt up such a perfect elegant face. Yet, the real thing was even better than she had remember. Bella couldn’t believe that it had only been three short days since she had seen him last, considering it felt like a lifetime. Ironically, she hadn’t even known the boy for her whole lifetime, only a few short months.|
Realizing that her mouth was hanging slightly open, she shut it automatically. Embarrassed, a faint tinge of red lined her cheeks, and she knew he, along with everyone else in their class, would have been able to see it. The fact that she was gawking at a boy a few desks down didn’t help either. She knew she should go sit down, but she couldn’t force her feet to work, as though she had just forgotten how to. From the vibrations that came from his chest, she could only guess that he was laughing at her. She frowned slightly, before stepping out of the way of a girl who cleared her throat from behind her, obviously having been waiting to get past her for longer than she wanted. Like before, she flushed once again. Bella was frustrated that he, of all people, had the nerve to laugh. After all, it had been his fault that she had fallen momentarily into a daze at the front of the classroom. She had told him more than once that he shouldn’t do such a thing to a poor innocent girl.
It was hardly only Bella that it happened to, though she was probably the one that it happened to most. After all, she was one of the few girls that were ever within inches of him, and the other two happened to be his sisters. Still, it happened to most girls who were graced by his smile, even the ladies that worked in the reception area of the school. It was hard not to fall completely in love with him at first sight, or perhaps more like becoming infatuated with him. He was much more gorgeous than the average male, with his bronze hair, and eyes that constantly changed depending on how well feed he was. While most were captivated with his face, and for the most part that was all Bella could look at, his body was just as nice looking as the rest of him. Not only his looks were irresistible, but he personally was too. He kept her on the edge of her seat, always surprising her with new knowledge, or a question that caught her off guard. Not only that, but he was still such a mystery to her, and she practically yearned to know more.
After spending another few seconds up front, she finally got her legs working again. She made her way towards her vacant seat, and while passing the first desk, she tripped on one of her fellow students bags. Falling against the hard ground, Edward was at her side before she had a chance to pull herself up. He gripped the edge of her arm, and yanked her up as though she weighted no more than a small dog. His hand lingered on her arm, instantly cooling it with it‘s touch. It sent goose bumps up her arm, at the same time that it sent shivers. Still, the coldness was more than welcome, and the small touch caused her cheeks to burn brightly once more. He brushed a strained of hair from her eyes, making an effort to not touch her cheek. She glanced up at him, her mouth falling open once more. She hadn‘t been prepared to seeing him this close, inches away from her face. She knew that it would have been easy to lean forward and capture his lips with her own. She mentally cursed herself for thinking that, and jumped slightly as he dropped his hand from her arm.
“Thanks,” was all that croaked out of her mouth, sounding as though she was a teenage boy who had just hit puberty. While most boys would have raised their eyebrow and laughed, he simply smiled down at her, before replying with his own hello. One that was much more graceful than my own. His voice was almost music to the ears. He turned around, and headed back towards his seat at our table. She followed behind like a lost puppy, and grumbled to herself as he looked back a few times, making sure she didn’t end up face first on the ground once again. She sat down next to him, just in time for their teacher to come bursting through the door. The lights instantly went out, as their teacher prepared to show them another movie. Taking a side glance towards the beautiful boy next to her, she let out a small sigh. She knew the class was going to be a long one, and she knew that there was no way she would be remembering what the movie was about the moment the lights came back on.
