C: *Should I say something? I need to say something! I can’t leave her alone. She’s confused, lost even... what if?*
B:*What should I do? How much help would Charlie be? Does he know I love Edward? Does he know I love Jacob?*
C:*I’m sure she still likes Jacob. And he’s absolutely crazy about her... Surely she can see that?? I don’t know if I should... could... How do you say something like that to her?*
B:*He looks like he’s in pain... I don’t know if I can keep this up... Maybe it was a mistake to come to Forks. But I can’t go back now! Maybe if I wasn’t here... What have I done? He never looks happy anymore...*
C:*She never looks happy anymore*
B:*I’ve never seen him laugh*
C:*When was the last time she laughed?*
B:*Does he know how?*
C:*Can she remember how?*
B: Charlie... Dad...
C: Bella... I...
C:*No! I interrupted her! Have I just ruined everything?*
B:*What? What was he going to say?!*
B: You what Dad?
C: No, it doesn’t matter. What were you going to say Bella?
B: No, it’s nothing. I’m going to do homework. I’ll come and clear the dinner stuff up after. (Goes to leave and as she steps onto the stairs)
C: I love you Bella. And I want you to know... I’m here if you want to talk. I might not be able to say much, but I can listen. I mean, I may not be as helpful as your mother but...
B: It’s okay Dad. Thanks. (starts to go upstairs) And, oh, uh Dad? You too. (Goes upstairs)
C:* I’m glad she understands, I’m not much of a talker. She’s good to me, is my Bella. She’s good to her Dad. My Bella.*
B:* My life’s stuck in such a rut. I have no where to go, no where to hide, and no way out. But maybe… Jake would understand if I just disappeared. Wouldn’t he? I’m sure he would, he would support me. I need to find Alice. Ask her where…He is. Where I can find him. If I still have hope. He’s got to be out there some where. I can not live without him. But can I live with him? Is it so much to ask that I live with the one I love? That in know that he is safe? Alive? And well? Oh, Edward, Edward! Your smooth, caring face, the iciness of your skin, I miss it all. I miss you, my Edward, my love.*
C:*Bella…Bella. Maybe… if she went back, to live with Reneè, her life would be better, she would have a life, she would live it, and she would enjoy it. Oh, so many things I have done wrong. Is this the worst of them all? Have I managed to ruin not only my life, but my daughters? My only daughters? What…oh what have I done? Bella doesn’t deserve this, doesn’t deserve me. I’m sorry Bella.*
B:*Have I ruined his life? Have I mucked not only mine, Jakes, Edwards and every other werewolf and vampire around, but Charlie’s as well? Oh no. Please no. This is just too much.*
