Edward came back a week later. I was sitting on the steps after school, not wanting to go home but not wanting to hang around much.

“What’s up?” I heard a voice behind me. I hadn’t had Biology that day, and I hadn’t gone into the canteen so I was startled to see him.

“What do you want?” I muttered.

“To talk to you”

“Why? I mean, before you wanted to stab me or something the way you were glaring at” I said. Renee and Charlie had been arguing more. He would stay out half the night and Renee would go out early.

“I saw you sitting here and I wanted to apologize. I was very rude, but it wasn’t your fault. I had a headache and I was in an incredibly bad mood”

“Apology accepted, and now I’m going home”

“Umm…would you like a lift?”

“No thanks, I’ve got my truck. I’ll drive home” I stuck my hand in my pocket and searched for my key.

“Damn, I must have dropped it somewhere”

“Well then, lift? You? Now?” I rolled my eyes.

“Fine, but only because I can’t find my truck keys”

“Suits Me,” he said, smiling slightly. I climbed into his Volvo and he started driving. Way to fast, I thought.

“Um, any chance you can slow down? Just a tiny bit?”

“You afraid of my driving?”

“No” I said to quickly. He slowed down fractionally. We reached the house. It looked dark and forbidding.

“Thanks for the lift”

“Don’t mention it” I got out of his car and walked over to the front door.

“Um…do you want to come in? For a drink or something?” I asked. He smiled but shook his head. I stood by the door, watching as he drove off.

“Calm down” I told myself “no ones home. Relax!” I opened the door and sure enough, nobody was home. Not yet anyway. I decided that I was going to do my homework and go over to Jake’s. I picked up the phone and dialled his number.


“Hey Jake. It’s Bella”

“Bella! Hey, how are you?”

“Fine, do you mind if I come over? I’m so bored over here”

“Great! Bring your swimming costume, I’ll teach you to surf!”

“No! Jake, I’ve tried that before and I nearly drowned”

“I’ll look after you Bella, please come over, you haven‘t been up in months. Charlie or Renee can pick you up later. You have to come!” he begged.

“Fine. But no surfing! Save that for the summer holidays,” I said. I could practically hear him smiling.

“Great Bells! See you soon!” I hung up and headed down the hall. Then remembered my truck was still at school and I had lost the key. I was surprised when I opened the door and saw my truck parked outside. The key was on the seat and had a note attached: I found it in my car; it must have been in your back pocket the whole time. I rolled my eyes and started to drive. La Push was peaceful and it made me forget all my troubles for a short time.
