~Chasing Cars~ [song my Snow Patrol]
Over Thanksgiving, Alice had convinced me to let her cut my hair. And surprisingly, I absolutly love it. I keep thinking about what Edward will think about it, then I remember me and Edward aren't going to happen. I have Mason to think about and his wife passed away only a year ago.
Black Friday had been crazy. Alice got in a fight with some blonde over a giant ass tv to go in her room. Alice won. Rose got the boots she had been dying for, and Emmett's tool set. I had been able to get Mason's new bed set for his room. He has been hounding me about giving him a new room because his room is for babies. So, after his soccer game on Saturday, he's going over to Alice's so I can do his room.
I dropped him off with Rose, on time today, and made my way to the hospital. I clipped my I.D. on my srub and made my way up the stairs.
"Belly! You're on time." Emmett yelled to me.
"I know! First time since ever." I laughed.
"Morning, Ang." I smiled.
"Morning, Bella. Oh, Dr. Cullen wants to see you in his office."
"Okay." I took a couple steps then stopped. "Wait, which Cullen?"
"Edward." she smirked, then continued her computer work.
I could ear my heart beat in my ears, I could feel it beating against my rib cage.
I walked down the hall, trying to steady my heart rate, to Edward's office and knocked on his already opened door.
"You wanted to see me, Dr. Cullen?" I asked.
He looked up and laughed. "Did you just call me Dr. Cullen? Last time I checked I was Edward."
I blushed. "Okay. You wanted to see me...Edward
"Yes I did." He smiled. "I haven't got a chance to properly thank you for talking to me last week." He sat on the edge of his desk, his hands in his lap.
I walked over to him and placed my hand on his. "You don't have to thank me, Edward. You needed to talk and for someone to listen."
"Well, I feel like I do. So, how about I make dinner for you tonight? At my place? I think it would only be fair to let you into my home, since you let me in yours."
"Thank would be great but-"
"Bring him." He stated simply.
"Bring Mason, bring yourself, and I will bring myself. I will call you to give you directions."
"Edward." I sighed.
"Now, I have a sick little girl I need to go check on." He winked and left, brushing my shoulder as he passed. "Oh." he turned around. "Your hair....beautiful." He turned back around and turned the corner.
I took a deep breath and turned the same corner.
I jumped and covered my heart with my hand. "God, Alice."
"Sorry. I know, 'You know the rules about scaring me when I'm thinking about boys'." She laughed. When she would scare me back in high school, I used to tell her that for laughs. The only boy I ever thought about was Riley. Now...Edward.
"Thinking about Riley, again?" she sighed and hooked her arm thorugh mine.
"No." I sighed. "Not this time."
"Thinking about Edward?" she asked simply.
She nodded, her cue to tell me to continue.
"I don't know what to think, Alice. I mean...I really do like him. He's nice, and honest. He's beautiful, he makes me smile so easliy. But I have to think about Mason."
"Why do you always have to think about Mason? I understand he comes first in your life. Your home life. Mason shouldn't decide who or whne you date. You need to give a guy a chance then bring Mason into it. Think about you for a moment. Think about what you want. What would make Bella happy?"
"Then let Edward make you happy. I know he asked you out to dinner tonight because he ran it by me first. He's trying to open up to you Bella. He's trying to make you happy, so let him." she stood infront of me and placed her tiny hands on my shoulders. "I love you, Bella. You're practily my sister. I want you to be happy and you deserve to be happy. Please try? Just let Edward in."
"Thank you, Bella." She smiled and dropped her hands. "You'll thank me one day. Oh, and i doubt Edward told you this, but dress nice."
I was tucking Mason's shirt into his pants. "Yeah, Baby?"
"You look pretty." He smiled.
"Thank you." I smiled and kissed his cheek.
"Are you done getting me ready? I'm ready to go to Edward's. He said he used to play soccer and I want him to show me some stuff. Can I bring my ball?"
I stood up and helped him put on his coat. "I guess. But don't forget and leave it over there."
"Yes!" He grabbed his ball and took off for the front door.
I laughed and shook my head as I slipped my sweater on and grabbed my keys.
"Don't run!" Mason was out of the car and up to Edward's door before I could blink. "Knock!"
He curled his little fist and beat the door three times. The lock clicked and opened showing Edward with a grin on his face.
"Mason!" he picked Mason up and tossed him up in the air.
Mason laughed a belly laugh I hadn't heard since he was a baby. I couldn't help but to smile.
"I brought my ball! Can you show me how you do all those tricks and stuff."
"Sounds like a plan. Where's your mom?"
"Right here." I huffed. "He ran." I laughed.
"At least you made it." He smiled. "Come one in."
He set Mason down and let us in. His apartment was clean. Black, white, and grey clean. It didn't look much lived in. But then again, he hadn't really been "living".
"I hope you guys like chicken nuggets and french fries." Edward looked down at Mason.
"Dinosuar shaped?!" Mason gasped.
Edward nodded. "T-rex."
"That's my favorite! Do you have red coolaid?"
"Of course. Red is my favorite color." Edward spoke in an obvious tone.
"Mine too!" Mason smiled. "Hey, you're just like me."
Edward laughed and nodded. "I guess I am."
I could really get used to this.
The next chapter will continue the dinner. hope you liked!! :)
