Chapter 21

I slowly walked up the driveway to my house. Aaron and Alex had gone to the cabin, while Becka opted to come home with me. She said she wanted to see Charlie, though I knew the truth. She wanted to see Edward yell at me. Such a great sister she was.

I opened the door, and took a deep breath. Charlie wasn’t here, so he must still be out fishing. But Edward was here, and he was waiting in my room.

Becka was a step ahead of me. Before I could do anything, she started to run up the stairs at a fast human pace.

I ran after quickly, careful not to go too fast. I got to the top, and Becka was waiting for me. I stuck my tongue out at her.

In the other room, I heard Edward moving. I knew he was probably getting ready to leave, and felt both happy and sad. I really wanted to see him, since he had been gone for a few days. But if never got the chance to see Becka again, I was fine with that.

As usual, however, Becka was a step ahead of me. She was in my room before Edward could hide. She was able to see him clearly, and I knew he knew from the low growl he emitted.

I rolled my eyes and walked into my room. “Just to say this, she kidnapped me,” I said as I walked over to him, and put my arms around his waist. His arms snaked themselves around mine, and he looked at me in confusion.

Becka just grinned, totally unabashed. “Actually, I kidnap Bella a lot. You think she would be over it by now.”

He looked from her to me, still confused. His wide eyes were still a light gold, so I knew he wasn’t angry.

“She did it in Phoenix, and now she does it here. A lot more often though,” I added as an afterthought.

“Why does she kidnap you?” Edward asked, completely bewildered. I felt bad for him, and wanted to explain the truth. But the look Becka gave me behind his back silenced me.

“Otherwise, she won’t go out. She hates shopping and people spending stuff on her. Kidnapping is the only way to go.”

I glared at her, and Edward laughed. I hung my head. Even the love of my life had to side with Becka…

I looked up at Edward after a moment of silence. There was a look on his face that said he was just realizing something.

He spoke to Becka. “How did you get Bella from here to wherever you just were? And how did you get there and back so quickly?”

Her eyes tightened slightly. “How did you get in Bella’s room? Wasn’t the house locked up?”

I looked from one face to the other. There was a strong line to Edward’s jaw, never a good thing. Becka’s eyes held a spark of rebellion that usually got her into a lot of trouble.

I inwardly groaned. I was always getting yelled at for wanting to tell Edward that I was a vampire. Now Becka was probably going to ruin the secret.

“I guess we both have things we don’t want to tell each other,” Edward finally said, relieving some of the tension that had been building up.

“I guess we do,” Becka icily shot back. She turned to me. “I have to go. I’ll call you in a few days.”

“Alright.”

She grinned, and walked out of my room at a human pace. She left the house, and proceeded to walk down the street for Edward’s benefit.

“What are you both hiding from me?” Edward asked calmly, playing with a strand of hair that had covered my face. He looked into my eyes, effectively dazzling me.

“Um…I went to La Push with her boyfriend because she made us get lost today,” I said in a slow, drunken voice. I couldn’t help it when he did this to me. I still felt faint, even though I didn’t need to breath. I was, however, aware enough that I wouldn’t say anything that could give my coven away.

He raised his eyebrows at me, trying to hide anger I knew was brewing behind his perfect face. “Why did you go to La Pus? You could have called me.”

“I don’t have a phone, and he left his at his house down south,” I said sourly. I had wanted to see Jake, but I would have wanted to do it without anyone in my coven coming.

“Hmm, maybe I should get you a phone then,” he said, a crooked grin coming on his face. He knew that I wouldn’t like that.

“Oh yes. And while you’re at it, how about you go and get me a super fast sports car and anything else you want to buy me,” I said sarcastically.

His grin got wider as he bent down to kiss me.
