When we got home from Las Vegas, Alice threw herself into wedding plans. I only had to do one thing. Tell my friends and family.
I had been back for a week and I still had not talked to Charlie or Renee. I hadn’t had contact with any of my friends except Angela since graduation, and I imagine that she was worried about why I hadn’t called since I left for Alaska. I knew no one suspected anything; they didn’t even know Edward and I were back together. What would they say when they found out that I was engaged to the guy they thought left a year ago?
I flopped back onto Edward’s couch in frustration. I had been spending the whole time we had been back thinking about how to tell Charlie and Renee. The door to our room cracked open. Edward popped his head through.
“Bella, are you okay? We were supposed to leave to go see Charlie five minutes ago.”
“I’m just worried about his reaction; everybody’s reaction really. What will they say? I’m only eighteen! Well, I guess I would be nineteen now if I was still human.” I smiled to myself for the fact of the date of my change. I had barely missed my nineteenth birthday. A few days later and I would’ve been nineteen forever.
“It’ll be fine. What’s the worst he could say?” Edward tried to reassure me as he came to sit beside me.
I knew he meant it to be a rhetorical question, but so many answers came to mind. Charlie could do so many things.
“He could hate me. I can’t deal with that it would crush me. I all ready he’ll be mad that I skipped out on college, before we even tell him about the wedding.”
He started rubbing soothing circles on my back as he spoke. “I highly doubt Charlie would do anything that bad.”
I thought of something then that made a smile appear on my face. “Has Alice seen anything?”
“I don’t think so. She’s too focused on planning to think of anything else.”
“Well let’s go ask her!” I jumped up and started running out the door, towards Alice and Jasper’s room. Edward caught me around the waist before I could get very far.
“I don’t think that’s such a good idea. You don’t want to end up being held hostage with Alice the rest of the day so you?” Edward asked.
“Fine!” I unwound his arms from around me and took his hand, pulling him downstairs and out the door. We got into the Volvo and Edward was about to turn the key in the ignition when I spoke.
“Shouldn’t we take my truck so he doesn’t come out yelling at you the minute we drive up?” I said, staring longingly at my old, rusty truck that was now parked beside the Volvo in the garage.
He sighed and got out of the car. I took the keys out of my pocket where I had put them this morning in preparation for this.
He groaned as the truck roared when I started it up. I drove to Charlie’s house, finally understanding Edward’s frustration with the speed of my truck, now that I had experienced the thrill of running first hand.
We pulled up to the house and knocked on the door. When nobody answered, I was suspicious, but I let myself in with the key from under the eaves.
“Dad?” I called out. There was no response.
I walked into the living room where I heard the TV on with the volume turned down super low. Charlie was asleep on the couch, but I didn’t go to wake him, because of what I saw on the TV. Somehow the TV had gotten to the news; there must have been a game earlier on this channel, Charlie never watched the news.
Edward and I stopped in our tracks and just stared as the reporter on the TV spoke.
“There has been a sighting of the oddest kind now captured in a picture.” Next to the reporter’s face popped up a picture that would be the death of me.
