When we got home, Alice was sitting outside with her arms crossed. As we drew up, Edward appeared. Then the rest. Edward looked upset, Esme worried, Carlisle mildly annoyed. Jasper looked perplexed, Rosalie amused and Emmett angry. That surprised me. Carlisle and Emmett didn’ t seem to get angry, Carlisle especially. Then Edward looked confused and smiled at Jacob. That astounded me.

“Thanks” he said. I looked at Edward, then Jacob. Oh god. I realized that Jacob had driven me home in his car which meant that my truck was in La Push. I had no way of getting to school, except by taking a lift. That also meant I couldn’ t skip! I scowled at Jacob.

“Sorry Bells, but you need to work on this. When ever I tried to touch you earlier, you moved away” had I? I didn’ t notice. I ignored this comment and just kept glaring.

“Thank you Jacob Black” said Carlisle “This is the second time you’ve returned her too our care. I understand how hard that must be for you ”

“Hey, she’s better off here. I mean, I spend half my time with the pack and they’re all male. At least she had some girls to talk to-sorry, ignore-out here. If you need me, Bella’s got my number” he nodded and left. Carlisle turned to me, and his expression was colder. I felt fear sting me.


he began but Jasper cut him off.

“Carlisle, she’s exhausted. Let it go for tonight. Tell her tomorrow”

tell me what tomorrow?

“Yes, of course” he tried to escort me in but I dug my heels into the ground and glared at them. He could have moved me but he decided not too.

“Okay, I’ll tell you now. Bella, we all feel it would be best if we removed you from school for a bit. We can all tutor you but this will give you a chance to sort yourself out. Is this okay?” I knew I didn’ t really have a choice. I bowed my head and started to walk inside.

“And we need your cell Bella. We need to contact Jacob Black. For one thing he is going to keep hold of your truck for a bit longer, and two we can’t watch you twenty four seven” I got it. Not only were they keeping my home, they were stopping me from going anywhere without one of them and I was going to have constant supervision? I opened my mouth and I saw a faint flicker of hope cross each face. But I didn’t speak, I screamed. Alice looked at Edward, to say ‘you see?’ and Edward nodded. Instant calm spread over me. They must have assumed this would happen. Alice picked me up and carried me up to her room (I still didn’ t have a bed). She put me down and gave me a no-nonsense look.

“Right Bella. We all had a discussion today. We’re worried about you and since shoving you headlong back into life won’t work, we had a vote. This or carry on as normal. I knew you would get upset but this will most probably help” she didn’ t know?

“Regrettably, this involves the wolves so I can’t see what will happen. Now give me your cell” she snatched my phone and left. She returned with a sandwich.

“Eat” she said. I just glared. After half an hour she gave up. She might have endless patience but I could be stubborn as hell. I didn’t know what to do. I flinched every time I saw a guy going towards me, I didn’t want to talk because the Cullen’s were too good to be touched by my bad luck, and I wouldn’ t eat because Alice was forcing me. God, why me?
