This is a follow on to my story of Alice's Obsession. It was slightly difficult to write, as I never intended a follow on for the first one! Please bình luận and tell me what bạn think!
The night was pitch black as I approached my house. The moon shone down upon it, creating an eerie shadow across the meadow. The fact that there were no lights on inside didn’t strike me as strange, as I could hear the thoughts inside. I managed to shut them out before I could get too grossed out.... I made a mental note to stay away from all their rooms.
I scaled the side of the building quickly. My window was open as usual and I climbed inside. Moving quickly and quietly, so to be able to get back to Bella’s as soon as possible and so not to alert anyone that I was here, I pulled on a clean áo sơ mi and jeans.
I had reached the window and was beginning to climb out again when the light in my room flicked on. Blinded momentarily, I whirled around to see the faint outline of a figure standing beside the light switch. My jaw snapped shut. “Alice....” I muttered
'Edward.' Her greeting was short and severe. She flittered phía trước, chuyển tiếp and sat down on the sofa in the centre of my room, pushing aside a pile of books. 'Where are bạn going?' She asked innocently, her eyes big and brown like those of a puppy. As if she didn’t know.
“Out.” I said. “If bạn tell mom and dad, I’ll kill you.” I grinned and she laughed. It sounded weird saying it in that context.
'C’mon Edward.' She pleaded, dropping from the đi văng onto her knees. 'Bella will like me!! I’ve seen it. There’s no point in trying to change the future. It won’t work.'
It was a sad fact, but I was still trying. If I had let her see that I knew she was right, she’d never stop. I took a measured step phía trước, chuyển tiếp and glared down at her.
“I won’t stop trying.” I đã đưa ý kiến menacingly, and then I was gone; out the window and sprinting away into the dead of night towards Forks.
'It won’t work!' She called after me. 'You can’t run from destiny, Edward. You’ll see I’m right!'
Alice could try and push her way into Bella’s life, but I was just going to have to push harder to keep her out. And I knew I could.
