I was prepared to wait a little for Terra to arrive, but as I locked up the door and turned around I saw an n Audi A5 in front of me. The driver side window rolled down and I saw Terra looking at me. “Are we going to go or are you going to stand there all day?” Shaking off my stupor I got into the passenger side and sat down on the dark leather seats.

“Nice ride.” I said while looking over the car. She just nodded and within a minute she was taking off her seatbelt. I looked out the window and saw that we were already there. Did I just daze off or something? Getting out of the car I walked over to Terra’s side and saw a red truck parked next to hers. There was about a foot between us but I still felt some stranger current coming off of her and going through me, like an odd sensation. Walking into Newton’s I saw Bella behind the counter talking to a pale man with red-brown hair; he was tall and I saw he stiffened the moment we came in.“Hey Bella.” He turned around but he was looking at Terra with an unfathomable expression.

“Hey Quil, is anything better between you and Jacob?”

“No” I said looking down at the carpet remembering our last conversation.

“Oh,” was all she could say in response, and then changed the subject, “So, who’s your friend?”

“This is Terra, she’s in town visiting the Cullen’s. Well I guess you already know her.” I said to Edward.

“Yes, in fact could I speak to Terra outside if you don’t mind?”

“If that’s alright with Terra.”

“Yeah, I’ll be back in a minute ok.” She said to me and then walked out with Edward. I turned back to Bella who had a confused expression on her face.

“You alright?”

“Yeah. Edward just didn’t tell me he was having visitors.” I wasn’t sure how to respond to that so I nodded and went to where the boots were kept. It had been about 4 minutes before Terra came back in and came over to where I was.

“Umm, Quil I have to go over to the Cullen’s for a little while. I guess they think I’m ditching them by spending all this time with you. You understand right?” her voice didn’t sound as lighthearted as she was trying for.

“Yeah I understand. It’s not fair for me to hog you all the time like this.” I joked and she let out a hard laugh. Giving me a peck on the cheek she then walked out of the store. Edward was talking to Bella, he lightly kissed her forehead and strode out the door. When they were out of sight I felt the spot on my cheek where her lips had been and felt an odd warmth on the spot. After a couple of minutes of just standing there blankly, I looked back to the shoes I was still holding. Sitting down on the bench I tired them on and walked a few feet just to test them out. They fit fine, aliening perfectly with my foot which would keep them sturdy as I walked. The price was reasonable so I put them back in their basic brown box and brought it over to the counter. Bella told me the price and I handed her my money, paying it exactly so she wouldn’t have to bother with getting me change. I was about to leave when Bella asked me a question.

“So, Terra, how does she know the Cullen’s?” her voice hinted a little worry.

“She said she went to school with them in Toronto and that she was here visiting.” My words didn’t seem to reassure her and I couldn’t think why. Once again I was turning for the door as she stopped me with another question.

“Did she say if they were friends or something?” now it all came clear what she was getting at.

"Yeah she said they were just friends but that was pretty much it.” Her face became a little more relaxed. “Don’t worry, Edwards all yours.” She smiled as I saw through her rouse.

“Thanks Quil, but how did you know?”

“I had a hunch that’s what you wanted to know.”

“So do you like Terra?” there was a tone to her voice that made it seem like it would be a bad thing if I said yes.

“Yeah, I do.” The look on her face was unreadable, and she didn’t look me in the eyes.

“So, I guess I'm keeping you from leaving.”

“It's alright, but yeah. Bye Bella.” She still didn’t look at me as I left appearing to be in a deep thought about something I said. I walked back out the door, the bell ringing as I passed back out of the store. There was a light drizzle but not enough to soak but as the tiny drops descended from the sky I remembered I had no ride home. Groaning I set out through the mist on the long walk back to my campsite. But what worried me the most was I didn’t know when I would see Terra again, and that made worry to no end.
