Chapter 9: Chapter 9: Doctor, Mall, and Names
This story is really interesting.....wished you updated more often. I wonder what happened to Bella and her parents and siblings. Good job!
Thank you for reading and reviewing His Cimmerian View. There have been a few questions regarding Edward and why he is so tainted by women. More of his back story is coming out, but between having a mother who was mentally ill, who subsequently abandoned him. The one girl he gave his heart to was only using him for money. One girl pretends to be his friend to gain access to his friend and for all accounts adoptive brother. And don’t forget the person he looked to as a mother figure who lied to him and hid the truth of things from him. When you put all of those things together, it is hard to trust and believe that there is honesty and truth in caring from a female. I know lots of women who think men are worms because of this or that, which happened, so it should not be so hard to understand how Edward may have this view of women. Next we have had an overabundance of questions regarding when Edward will find out Bella’s true age. That will happen, but first we need to build a little more of their friendship together. I know that many of you are not happy of his time going to Aro’s, but I assure that those times are coming to a close. It is important we felt in the story and as the story goes to show how he is dealing with his own reactions to Bella. There will not be any more explicit scenes from the club, however your knowledge of him going will not stop until he stops… AND WE PROMISE he stops going. This is a rather slow burn, but for this to be realistic, in any way, shape, or form it needs to be. With that said we will not drag it out either. You will continue to learn more about Edward and Bella, as well as a few of the other characters, but it is all going with the storyline. There are some great chapters coming up, and for all of you who still have some hate or anger for Edward, I am sure that you soon will find that hate or anger directed in another place. We update each and every Thursday.
Chapter 10 Teaser… Subject to changes during Beta Process.
Carlisle, Jasper, Emmett, and I, all meet up on Saturday for a workout and lunch. The topic moved to Bella, and Emmett was not happy that he was the only one that had not met her yet. I, well we, explained that she did not like close contact with people and might say things out of the norm. Of course, this all fell on deaf ears, because his only response was him promising to be on his best behavior. Now, we all love Emmett - most people do - but he is a large hulk of a man. Emmett is six foot six and must be tipping the scales at close to three hundred pounds. His biceps are the size of my thighs. He also has a quick mouth, and often says things without thinking. We tried to tell him this, but he didn’t get it. We all knew that he would end up trying to hug her, or that she would end up saying something and then he would joke about it, but either way, she would end up hurt. I just couldn’t allow that to happen, not even by one of my best friends. He pouted the rest of the time we were together, even after Jasper and Carlisle both said she could not meet him yet. I was a bit worried at the end of lunch when Emmett looked as if he was hatching an evil plan.
I look at my watch, seeing that it’s almost nine-thirty, and I know that Bella is about to walk in. I have set up the table with some of the supplies I need to help teach her, including alphabet cards. Since she can already recognize some letters, I know teaching her the alphabet should be pretty simple. I know the best thing for me to do, is to start at the beginning. This means that the alphabet song we all loved as a kid, is first. I look to the door as it opens, and see Bella walking in. She glances at me, and I can see in her eyes that she looks both excited and apprehensive. I am sure she is a bit nervous about today, so I smile at her. We already decided that we would do an hour and a half on Tuesday mornings, and an hour and a half on Thursday afternoons.
“Bella, hang up your jacket and come over to the table.” She nods her head and does what I ask. “We will begin with the alphabet. There are twenty-six letters in the English alphabet; twenty-one are consonants, and five are vowels. I will show both the capital and lower case letters. Are you ready?” She nods her head before putting her glasses on. She has them sitting at the edge of her nose, which will make her look over the top of them rather than through them. I push them back to sit on her nose correctly. “No looking over them, Bella,” I say, giving her a smile.
