My stomach churned I knew Sam was going to talk about Edward, I nodded unable to speak for a second. Jacob said he would wait in the car, Sam steered me towards the porch in the backyard. He gazed at the moon for a second before taking a deep breath.

He looked at me, his eyes as serious as I have ever seen them, "Bella I know who that vampire is." He said still looking at the moon, I guess the moon helped him relax. "I know its Edward." He added, he finally looked at me but I was staring at the floor.

I nodded slowly, "Then why didn't you say something?" I asked looking up.

He hesitated putting a hand on my shoulder, "Because I knew that wouldn't be right for you." He said, a smile creeped up in his face, "he hasn't done anything...yet, so why bother?"

I looked at him, confused.

He chuckled and continued to talk, "I'm not saying I'm thrilled about seeing him here after a decade or so, but I wouldn't want to kill him for hunting an animal." He looked at me, "Has he hurt you in any way?" He asked, I shook my head, "Then no problem."

I still didn't understand why he didn't rat Edward out, I was more confused about it.

"You owe me." He said after a moment.

Then I understood, the only reason why he didn't tell Jacob about Edward was because he wanted something to hold against me, or Edward. I sighed knowing that it was the most that I was going to get and walked out.

I woke up in Jacobs arms, he hadn't gone to work today, it was his day off. He was pretty upset about not catching Edward he kept saying a lot of swear words for any little think he did wrong. I smiled, it was funny seeing Jacob angry.

"Shh...no cussing in front of the children." I said to him at breakfast.

He chuckled and went to throw away the split in half plate, "There is a new movie out, you want to go see it with the kids?" He asked.

"Of course, but what about, you know the vam-"

"Oh don't worry about that..." He said, I felt the blood in my face drain, did that mean they found Edward?

"Why?" I asked looking away from him, cleaning up the plates and trying to keep my voice even.

"Hmmm?" He asked seeming slightly distracted, "Oh Sam says he'll take care of it, he wants us to spend the weekend together. So I'll help you clean up so we can leave early then we can have dinner out." He said, I could hear the smile in his voice.

My heartbeat returned to its normal pace, "Wow you're on a roll." I said with a hint of sarcasm.

He nodded with a big grin. "I'll do the laundry, clean the kitchen, and wash the dishes." He said taking the plates from me.

I laughed and headed up to clean the rooms.

I was mopping p the living room when Jacob walked in from the laundry room with a furious expression.

"What?" I asked walking up to him, he put his palm up telling me to back away.

The kids were changing into their dress clothes.

"Can I talk to you outside?" He asked, his voice hard and full of anger. I noted his arms shaking.

"Why not in her-"

"OUTSIDE!" He bellowed, I jumped and made my way outside. I had never seen Jacob this angry, it was terrifying, and I knew that whatever he had found out was bad.

Before I could ask what was wrong he asked, "What the hell is this?"

My heart sank, no. I couldn't believe what Jacob was holding in his hands, I thought I threw that away. My breath came stronger as I looked at what Jacob was holding in his hands. I remembered I had put the note in my pants pocket, but I never threw it away, I threw it in the laundry basket. The note that Jacob held was the worst thing that he could find.

The note that Edward gave me along with a rose was hanging from eh tips of Jacob shaking hands.

"W-where did you get that?" I asked, trying to keep my balance.

"WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?" He roared, I knew the reason that he wanted us to go outside was for the kids to not hear our discussion.

"A n-note." I said, my voice shaking. I felt a tear trickle down my face.

"Just a fucking note?" He asked his breathing hard. "'I love you, you cant make me go away, forgive me.'" He read the note. "Who is this from?" He asked.

I couldn't talk, my throat felt tight, I whimpered.

Jacob gasped and then he chuckled an angry way, "Oh this is from you boyfriend isn't it? What was his name? Edward?" He sneered, "Oh-ho ho , now I understand, that stupid vampire that came here is EDWARD!"

I quivered, shaking my head. This wasn't suppose to happen.

"IS IT!?" Jacob asked, his nose flared.

I shook my head, I tripped over the lawn hose and fell to the floor.

Jacob growled and crumpled up the paper and threw it on the grass, "I'm going alone, with the kids, you can stay here and hope that we don't catch your stupid vampire." He said and walked back into the house.

I couldn't breath, I heard the door close, the kids yelled "Bye Mommy!" and left with their father.

I wrapped my arms around my knees, set my head down on them and began to cry. I didn't mean for this to happen. Jacob wasn't suppose to find out this way, or any way.

I cried for a while, then I felt someone carry me up, I thought it was Jacob but when I looked up I found Edward's soft golden eyes looking down on me.

He carried me to the living room, he sat down with me on the couch. I curled up in his lap, sobbing, my tears washing my whole face. Edward stroked my back gently, humming my lullaby.

He was quiet, I guessed he was trying to find words to speak, "Bella, I am so sorry." He said, his voice filled with pain.

I shook my head and looked up at him, I took his face in my hands, "Edward, its not your fault."I said, he shook his head, "You didn't do anything, listen." I said, he was beginning to turn away from me, "I was the stupid one that didn't hide the note."

I let go of his face and my hands slumped to my side, it was all my fault. Jacob was mad at me now, he doesn't think I'm a good wife.

I looked around the room, the white bright room seemed to mock me, I scowled.

"No Bella, I should have never come, never come back after all these years. I just wanted to see you, and Alice persuaded me. I did all of this, I created this conflict with Jacob and you. You were happily married until I entered the picture once again. Maybe I should just go now." He said beginning to get up.

I stopped him, "No, the damage is already done, it wont make a difference if you leave or stay, so just stay in Forks, please."

"But Bella-"

"Edward, please you are so stubborn but for once pay attention to me." He sat back down next to me. "Don't blame yourself. It was me, I let you in my life again, if I didn't then everything would be fine, no damage would be made." I said in a glum voice.


"Just let it drop Edward." I said. He smiled my crooked smile and nodded.

I got up and walked to my room, I sat on the window seal looking down to the pouring rain. Edward followed me and sat in the rocking chair I used for the kids now, silently.

The rain equaled the mood that I was in, gray, teary, cold.

Edward sat silent on the chair, looking at me, his soft eyes full of worry and his expression, apologetically. I shook my head.

I lay on the bed to cry.
