Charlie picked me up at the airport, like he always does when I come and visit, which isn't a lot.
I followed Charlie as he put my suitcase in my old room. As I looked around, I noticed the wall's were a different color and the floor had carpet now. Hmm, wonder when he did that.
"I'm going to go take a shower," I told him. "I'll be down once I'm done."
Charlie nodded and walked out of the room and back downstairs.
I put my suitcase on the bed and unzipped it. I grabbed a pair of jeans and a plain gray t-shirt and some under garments and walked to the bathroom. I turned the water on so it could get hot and got in. I sighed as the hot water started relaxing my nerves.
Once I got out and dressed, I made my way downstairs, I noticed something I didn't notice before. These walls have been painted a different color too, and the living room had different furniture in it. It looked nice, don't get me wrong, but it was different. It wasn't Charlie. He never changes anything.
"I see you've changed the place a little." I said as I walked over to the couch.
Charlie looked around, "Yeah, about a year ago." He smiled, "Just thought the house could use a little change."
I stared at him, "Hmm."
Something was going on, but I just didn't know exactly what yet.
"It looks nice." I smiled. I will find out, soon.
"Uh huh," Charlie looked at the clock, "We'll be going down to La Push in about an hour. There's going to be a cookout."
He stood up, "Plus Jacob's excited you're here, he has a lot to tell you." He smiled warily at me and then started going upstairs.
I watched him as he walked upstairs thinking what Jacob had to tell me.
I shook my head and plopped down on the couch. Something’s changed about Charlie. And now Jacob has something to tell me. What is going on?
I sighed and started flipping through channels to pass the hour before we would be leaving.
Nothing was on television, so I ended up turning it off about five minutes later. I was now in my old room reading. At least that's what I planned on doing when I came up here. But, no I was thinking about Edward.
This room holds so many memories of him. I sighed and shook my head trying to get rid of the thoughts. It was ridiculous of me sitting here pining over him. He has probably forgotten about me already.
I know that I probably should hate Edward for all the pain he put me through. But I don't. I still love him as much as I did three years ago.
"Bella, are you ready to go?" Charlie called from downstairs.
I got up and sighed, shaking my head to clear it, "Yeah, I'll be right there."
I grabbed my jacket and headed downstairs.
