2. Didn't care much for the competition lol.

This was sent in to me and was written by kitty96m1, if Bella had ended up with Lucas instad of Rorke.

Belle’s POV

‘I wonder what he’s doing?’ is the question that’s on constant repeat in my head. Everywhere I go and everything I do, I just can’t seem to shake him from my mind. Maybe I’m just thinking too much or maybe I’m going crazy but no matter what my life revolves around him and I’m nowhere near him. That’s the worst part not being around him.

It’s been 3 weeks since I left the hospital, when they all saved me I knew they were truly some of the best friends I will ever have in life. I know you shouldn’t be on the phone whilst driving but I’m glad that I was that time.  If I hadn’t my ex-husband would’ve finally gotten rid of me once and for all, it’s just a shame that he has an alibi. Even that is too good to be true which is why the police are investigating further but the guy who did it still hasn’t been found. I’m just lucky that they were on the other end of the phone because otherwise I probably wouldn’t be alive.

 It’s annoying only being able to talk to all of them over the phone now, but even more annoying that I have feelings for one of them. Although each of them is individually stunning in their own way, he just shines brighter than the rest. He makes my heart swell and looking in his eyes I know, with him, I’m always going to be safe. His olive skin and emerald green eyes were constantly on my mind, just thinking about the way his voice turned husky when lust flashed through his eyes, sent me shivers down my spine and warmed my core.

So although I can’t stop thinking about him, I know we will never be more. No strings attached. That’s what I offered all of them, I just got out of a failed relationship, I shouldn’t be able to love so soon; but then I was never in love with that monster I called husband. I was at first, but he changed for the worse: I’m hoping I’ve changed for the better.

I need to get a grip. I’ve moved to a new city, got a new job, live in a new house. I need to try and forget about the love I hold for a certain person. He’ my friend and I am not going to jeopardize that because I know if I lose one of them, I could potentially lose all of them.

So as much as I love Lucas, we will never be more than friends.

 

Lucas POV.

I was sitting outside her house, my nerves building. This was it. I was going to tell her how I really feel. Logan had finally persuaded me to be a man and tell her, so here I was.

I was reluctant at first because she had assured us that there were no strings attached, but being away from her is killing me. I love her. I’m in love with her. I wish I’d realised sooner and then maybe she wouldn’t have got in the car to leave, maybe then she wouldn’t have been hurt. It pains me that, that bastard was almost able to hurt her; I’d give anything to teach him a lesson. He deserves to die for what he did. Logan convinced be to come and get her. I suppose he was sick of my moping around all the time.

I’m sick of having this hole in my heart, it might have only been 3 weeks but they are the longest 3 weeks I’ve ever had to endure. Being away from her is like not being able to breathe, complete and utter torture. I need her in my life and although we only spent a small amount of time with each other, she managed to completely capture my heart within that little time.

So here I am sitting outside her house putting my plan into action. No one’s home yet which is perfect and I just called Maria and convinced her to not come home tonight. She quickly agreed when I told her what I had up my sleeve. She also told me there was a place I could hide my bike in, around the back of the house. I checked the back door, luckily it was open. I snuck inside and walked to the bedroom that Maria had told me too.

Opening the door I quickly shed my clothes, before placing the roses on the bed, and walked into the bathroom, I hoppedinto the shower to rid myself of some dirt and ease my nerves. After my shower I dried quickly and put my clothes back on. I got the flowed and used some of the petals to spell out ‘I love you’. I put the music on and when I heard the rattle of the front door I speedily hid in the wardrobe and waited for her to come up.

 

Belle’s POV.

As soon as I walked through the door, I knew something was wrong. First of all Maria wasn’t home yet which was unusual as she always beat me home. Secondally, the sound of music playing in the background put me on edge. I knew for a fact I had turned that off before leaving for work this morning.

I cautiously made my way upstairs, terrified when I realised the music was indeed coming from my room. I stepped in surprised to find it empty, until I noticed the ‘I love you’ wrote in rose petals on the bed.

“Who done that?” I asked as if the bed was going to answer me.

I jumped when someone replied “I did.” And slowly turned to reveal a grinning Lucas standing there at the open door of my wardrobe.

“Lucas… What? How are yo- Why are yo- Huh?” I stumbled unsure of what I was about to ask.

“I couldn’t do it any longer. I couldn’t be away from you Belle. I love you. I’m in love with you. Please tell me you feel the same?” He asked hopefully, a nervous glint in his eyes.

I stood there frozen. I didn’t know what to think, all I had running through my mind was ‘HE FEELS THE SAME WAY ABOUT ME THAT I FEEL ABOUT HIM!’ Tears threatened to spill as I realised the man I loved had come back for me.

“Belle?” he asked uneasy, as he approached me. “Don’t cry. Please… I’m sorry, was it something I said?”

I literally jumped on him and held him to me whilst whispering “I love you” in his ear. When I pulled away and looked up at his face, I saw a grin as wide as his face. It didn’t take long for him to respond by crashing his lips down onto mine.

That night he made me his. Not for the first time but I knew that it definitely wouldn’t be the last time.

 It was me and him against the world.
