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 stayed in my room. No one disturbed me until the next morning when there was a tentative knock at the door.

“Bella? Are you going to school today?” asked Esme, peeking round the door. I shrugged and she sighed.

“I think you should go. You don’t want to fall behind” I shrugged again and went outside.

“Do you want a ride?” Edward asked me. I shook my head.

“I’m going in his car too, so is Jasper” Alice said to me. I shook my head again. I noticed Emmett and Rosalie getting into another car. I ignored them all and got in my truck (something else my mum had left behind). Of course, even though they waited for me to leave first, Rosalie overtook me quickly and reached school first. I was tempted to just skip school and drive somewhere else but Edward’s car was behind me, clearly making sure that I didn’t do that. I sighed and drew into the school. I parked, making the decision to skip lunch and just sit in the car. The door was pulled open.

“Humans need to eat Bella” said Alice. I ignored her and just got out. She shut the door behind me and I started heading off to my first lesson. Someone tapped me on the shoulder and I turned.

“Bella, I’ll escort you” said Edward. I shook my head, backing away rapidly. He looked hurt but he let me go. My lesson passed quickly. If a teacher asked me a question I just shook my head. They let it go, knowing about the recent death of my parents (just my dad in that one I thought). At lunch time I did go and sit in my car. After ten minutes, Alice tapped on my window. I rolled it down.

“Come inside Bella” I shook my head.

“You can eat with us; no one will try and make you talk. You need to eat” I shook my head again.

“Fine, but as soon as we get home, I am going to make you eat a sandwich” she stormed off. No. she couldn’t make me eat anymore then she could make me talk. I waited until she was inside, then I switched on my engine, thinking, it’s cold. I need to warm up. Then I drove. Ha, they couldn’t catch me. I drove to La Push. Jacob was sitting outside his house.

“Bella! I knew you’d come, that’s why I ditched school” I ran to him.

“Are the leeches giving you a hard time?” he asked. I shrugged.

“Oh, I get it. You’re not speaking? Well, I’m glad you’re here anyway” my phone vibrated. I flipped it open.

“Bella, you are in so much trouble when I get hold of you! You can’t just ditch school!” I sighed. Jake took the phone off me.

“Bella is entitled to her own life. Her choices. She’s fine. Go away. I’ll make sure she goes back to your house at some point” he flipped the phone shut. We didn’t do anything, just sat on the beach while he talked and I listened. He explained about the whole werewolf thing and I felt relieved knowing he wasn’t a monster. But, it couldn’t last. After nineteen calls from Alice, six from Edward and one from Esme, Jake decided to send me home. It was getting dark.

“I’ll drive you” he said. I looked at him, trying to convey the obvious. How would he get home?

“We‘ll take my car. Come on”

He started the engine and we drove off. I relaxed, and allowed my hand to move towards his. He stroked my hand gently. How could I have thought him a monster?
