Chapter 6: An Invitation
I maneuvered my car along the long and windy driveway that led to the house. Jake made up some lame excuse about having something to take care of at Главная and took off, I couldn’t help but notice how angry he was as he left; he was trembling. I knew he was going to phase at any moment so I was kind of glad that he took off before he lashed out. “I am sorry for how rude my friend was to you, he is not usually like that something must be going on, “I told Nahuel. He smiled warmly at me, and said, “It’s perfectly fine, I hope I did not cause any problems for you” with a worried crease in his brow. I reassured him that everything was fine as I parked my car in my grandparent’s monstrously huge garage. When I walked in the door I heard the beautiful sound of my father playing the piano, as my mother sat with him and watched. My grandmother sat at the таблица going over what I assumed to be party plans for my birthday (gag!). “Hi everyone, look who I found at school today.” My father stopped playing and smiled, “Hello Nahuel. How are you? He walked up to shake his hand. “What brings Ты to Forks?” Nahuel received his hand warmly, “My aunt and I have come here for a fresh start, we have decided to try the vegetarian way of life and we thought that this would be the best place to start, since we knew that your coven was here.” My mother smiled warmly, remembering that he had saved us all, “Nahuel we will be еще than happy to do what we can to help Ты both.” The door opened and my Aunt Alice and Aunt Rosalie glided into the room bickering over party arrangements, “Alice she is not going to like it Ты know how she feels about big parties,” Aunt Alice replied in annoyance “Rose Ты are really killing me here. Do Ты realize that this is a momentous occasion on вверх of the fact it has been so long since I have thrown a good party and Ты know how I like-“she trailed off as she saw Nahuel. My uncles came in behind them with my grandfather who had just come Главная from the hospital. “Nahuel” Carlisle smiled warmly as he embraced him, “how are Ты my friend?” Nahuel explained again to everyone why he was here. My family was so happy to see him, but my father kept to himself a bit. I thought it was strange and unlike him, but I brushed it off thinking he was still upset with me for my brash words the other day. After visiting for a bit, Nahuel stood up, “Thank Ты so much for your kindness I already feel very welcome here, my Aunt will be sorry that she missed this.” My Aunt Alice smiled widely with an impish look in her eyes, “Nahuel, Renesmee’s birthday party is in two days, and Ты should come and invite your aunt as well. We are considering this her sweet 16, since it is her last mortal birthday.” He looked down at me and smiled in such a private way that I had to look away from him, “Well, he сказал(-а) in his beautiful accent. “that all depends on what Renesmee thinks would Ты like me to come?” I felt the blood rush to my face amidst a snicker that was let out by my Uncle Emmett as my Aunt Rosalie smacked him. I slowly met Nahuel’s eyes with my own, “Um, sure, it would be great if Ты want to that is” way to go I thought to myself after my intelligent conversation at lunch he is just going to be thrilled to spend even еще time with me now. He laughed politely, “Of course I would like to” he turned to my Aunt Alice, “well it’s settled, I will see all of Ты then, thank Ты for the gracious invitation.” I couldn’t stop staring at his intense Шоколад brown eyes it could have been hours for all I knew that I sat there when I finally felt a hand on my shoulder. My mother looked at me with a bemused twinkle in her eye, “Why don’t Ты give Nahuel a ride Главная and then we will hunt when Ты return.” My face flushed as I realized that I had made a fool of myself yet again, “Oh sure” I mumbled. I grabbed my car keys and led Nahuel out as he politely сказал(-а) goodbye to everyone. When we stepped outside he took my hand and stopped me. He pulled me so that I was in front of him, and inches from his face. He spoke softly, “I’m sorry, did I do anything to offend Ты in there?” Once again I was caught up in a trance by his intense eyes, “Oh, no… no of course not, it’s just been a long day…” He placed a hand under my chin, “In that case why don’t we get going so that Ты can come Главная and get some rest. This face is far too beautiful, to not be taken care of properly.” I forgot to breath for the entire time that he was speaking and started to get dizzy. “Are Ты alright?” He asked in concern. “I’m fine, must be thirsty” I offered quickly I turned around so that I could attempt to maintain what was left of my dignity. I took a deep breath and told myself, “Ok, he is dangerously beautiful but Ты can do this without making a total fool of yourself, just do not look into his eyes and it will be ok.” He opened the door for me and then slid gracefully into the passenger seat. I tried to think of something interesting to say in order to strike up a conversation so that I wouldn’t smash up my new car in my distracted state. “So, um Ты cut Ты hair?” I wanted to хлопать, привкус myself as soon as I had opened my mouth there’s a line that will sweep him off of his feet, I thought to myself sarcastically. “Yes, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try something new.” I made the mistake of looking at his face as he spoke; he smiled a beautiful smile that produced two dimples in its wake devastating me even more. I tore my eyes away from his as an angry horn blared from a car in the opposite lane apparently I had veered to close for comfort. I gasped and swerved just in time. “Pull over he instructed gently. I obeyed and closed my eyes for a minute. “Are Ты alright?” He asked again looking even еще concerned than before. “Yes I’m fine I must really just be tired, it’s been a long day.” Well, I thought to myself, that wasn’t a total lie. He smiled at me and said, “why don’t Ты let me drive so that Ты can relax a bit.” I agreed and stepped out of the car once he was behind the wheel I was able to focus a little еще on conversation, “What made Ты come here Nahuel?” His content smile shifted into an emotionless expression. “Family issues.” Was all he offered, I decided to switch tactics. “I’m sorry that my Aunt cornered Ты into coming to my party she shouldn’t have put Ты on the spot like that-“ I stopped talking as he pulled into the school parking lot. He parked the car and turned to me, with an amused smile, “Do Ты think I would really have agreed to come if I didn’t want to? How could I not attend the sweet 16th party of the most beautiful girl I have ever laid eyes on?” That did it, I officially wasn’t breathing normally, I didn’t have a particularly brilliant response so I didn’t offer one. I just stared into his eyes that suddenly burned with a deep intensity, “Renesmee Ты are amazing and what’s еще Ты understand me, every fiber of my being. We are two of a kind. I most certainly want to spend еще time with you, that is, if Ты don’t mind.” I managed to squeak out my approval. “Wonderful” he сказал(-а) as he continued to keep his eyes locked on mine. “I have forgotten something in school so I need to go, I can walk Главная from here”. He got out of the car and walked around to open my door for me. He held his hand out to me and helped me up I was grateful for his help since I didn’t trust my wobbly knees just yet. “Will I see Ты tomorrow then?” He asked as he still held onto my hand. I nodded as I continued to remain Остаться в живых in the sea of his eyes he leaned in and brushed his lips against my cheek. “Will Ты be ok to drive home?” He asked once again looking concerned. “Yes, I will be fine,” I assured him. “Good” he murmured as he touched his hand to my cheek, “Get some rest.” With that he sauntered away from me into the school, I watched him as he disappeared into the building, it just shouldn’t be legal for a guy to be that god-like. I sighed and then got into my car thinking to myself, “What just happened?!” I groaned as I realized what a fool I had made of myself. He was probably just being polite with the Kiss on the cheek and I was totally blowing it out of proportion, I laid my head against the steering wheel in defeat. My thoughts were disturbed by a fist pounding on the passenger side of my car. I let out a shocked scream as I looked into two very angry eyes.
