Because I never left

Renee never left Charlie when Bella was a baby. Bella is there when Edward arrives. I said i'd put the top two up but instead i put all of the ones i got. i got four. I can't remember everyone who sent one in so if yours gets chosen let me know that you sent it in and i'll put up a announcement. Also, if one gets chosen and then removed for being the wrong size i'll go for the second most popular Because I never Left Banner 1

I turned slowly.

"Jacob" I said, "What do you want?"

"To talk would be nice"

"I have nothing to say to you"

"Well I have to talk to you"

"Have you ever considered a less extreme way? Instead of creeping up on someone and scaring them half to death? Oh wait a sec, I forgot, you're very good at scaring people!" I said. I was in no way ready to forgive Jake.

"Well, you've been ignoring my calls and avoiding me. So, this was my last option. That or kidnap you" he grinned. I just looked at him as though to say ‘that was meant to be funny?'

"Look I'm sorry. But it's not my fault your parents died! Technically speaking you were the one who ran into the road" I felt anger coursing through my veins. I wanted to hit him.

"And why was that? Because I was scared? Because I'd thought, I'd found someone I could trust but it turned out I couldn't? Because you turned into a giant wolf, Jacob! My best friend became a...an animal!" I shouted.

"Bella, I can't help what I am! That was why Billy wanted you to leave, to stop this very thing from happening! To stop you doing something stupid!"

"Jacob! It's natural to run from something scary!" I cried.

"Bella, just please stop blaming me for what happened. I can't change the past and even if I had killed your parents, which I didn't, I wouldn't be able to do anything about it. So shouting at me for something that is more your fault then mine isn't helping" that did it. I exploded with rage. My arm swung back and punched him in the face. Crunch. Pain shot through it.

"DAMN IT!" I shouted. I cradled my arm close and turned away from Jacob.

"Are you okay Bella?"

"I'm fine," I snapped.

"I can drive you to hospital?"

"I don't need to go to hospital. I just need to get this stuff and go"

"Bella, you've broken your hand! You need a doctor"

"When I get home a doctor will be there" I retorted.

"Well, I can take you to you house. Just tell me where you're staying"

"I'm staying at the Cullen's and thanks, but no thanks. I'll get a lift with someone I actually want to talk to" a strange look crossed his face.


"Yes! The Cullen's! You know, Doctor Cullen?" I said. I grabbed my bag with my good hand and marched towards the door. He grabbed me and spun me around.

"No Bella! You can't stay with the Cullen's!" he said.

"What? Get off me Jacob!" I tried to pull away but his hands held onto me.

"You cannot stay with the Cullen's!" he shouted.

"Why not?!" I yelled straight in his face.

"They're vampires!" he shouted. I pulled away.

"Jacob you are such an idiot! Just because I won't talk to you, don't try and poison my mind against my new family!" he grabbed my arm again.

"Bella, I swear I am not lying! I'm..." the door burst open. Emmett and Jasper had clearly heard my shouts.

"Get your hands off her!" shouted Emmett. He grabbed Jacob and tugged him off me.

"Stay away from her!" he said. Jasper took my arm and led me out. Emmett bolted me in, obviously assuming I was in shock, and drove off.

"Bella? Are you okay?" asked Jasper, uncertainly.

"Yeah" I said. I was more startled by Jacob's sudden appearance.

"Did he hurt you?" asked Jasper with anger in his tone.

"No" I muttered, and then I moved my hand "Ow"

"So he did hurt you!" said Emmett "Why, I should turn this car round and..."

"He didn't hurt me deliberately. I punched him. His head is hard," I said. Emmett laughed.

"You should have got me to do it"

"I didn't know he was going to turn up" I said. I closed my eyes. Jacob was an idiot and I had no idea why I'd ever been friends with him.
