"Thanks for driving me Edward," I told him as he turned off my street heading to school.
"It's no problem Bella," he turned and smiled brightly at me.
"Carlisle said my leg should be better soon," I told him and saw his grip tighten on the steering wheel.
"Yeah he told us. I just hope you don't get hurt again," he replied his voice soft.
I forced a smile, and retold the lie, "I just need to make sure I don't fall again," I glanced over to look at him. He looked like he wanted to say something but didn't. He pulled into the parking spot he did every day. "Thanks again," I thanked him.
"It's my pleasure, and I'll see you at lunch right?" Edward asked as he climbed out of the car.
"Yeah see you then," I told him heading off to my locker. As I was walking I saw everyone watching me and it made me blush. I soon found out why I was being watched when Jessica stopped me at my locker.
"Did Edward Cullen really drive you to school today?" she asked excited.
"Yeah," I told her, and grabbed the book for my first class.
"Wow why?" she questioned.
I shrugged lightly, "He didn't say why he just asked if I wanted a ride to school today."
She huffed not happy she couldn't get any real details out of me.
"Okay I'll talk to you later Bella see you," she told me walking over to Mike. I noticed everyone watching me after this morning. Angela was out with the flu today I had heard. I was about to go sit with Mike, Jessica, and the others when Edward came up beside me.
"Bella you can sit with us if you want to," he told me as we walked out of the line.
"Sure," I told him walking behind him as everyone was looking at me. When we sat down at the table the others weren't there yet. "Edward everyone has been watching me today," I told him.
"I'm sorry about that it seems it's because of me. Since were new here, and we haven't really talked to many people they must find it odd," he apologized.
"You don't need to apologize I just don't like attention," I admitted, and the others sat down at the table then.
"Hey Bella it's good to see you," Alice told me as she came, and sat next to me then gave me a hug.
I hugged her back gently, "It's good to see you too Alice."
"So did Edward drive you to school today Bella?" Emmett asked and I saw him wink in Edward's direction, and I blushed slightly nodding my head.
"Emmett, don't mess with her about it," Rose scolded him elbowing him in the ribs.
He smiled at me, "Sorry Bella," I laughed lightly at the control Rosalie had over him.
"Its fine Emmett; don't worry about it."
"Umm Bella shouldn't you eat something?" Edward asked me.
"Oh yeah," I picked up the piece of pizza and took a bite. "What about you don't you need to eat?" I asked.
"No we had a big breakfast," he answered quickly.
The rest of the school day went well, and I had no homework. But then I remembered that my truck wasn't here it was at my house. I sighed looking as the rain poured down outside the school. I grabbed my bag, and headed out of the school. I was just about to go outside when someone stopped me. "What are you doing?" Edward asked behind me.
"I'm going home" I answered and started to head out the door again but he walked out behind me.
"Do you really think I'm going to let you walk all the way home in this?" he questioned gesturing to the rain as it fell around us.
I followed him to his car. The car ride to my house was silent. When he pulled up to my driveway I let out a sigh of relief that Charlie hadn't come home early today. "Goodbye Bella," Edward said I as I climbed out of the car. "Bye, Edward," I told him walking quickly into my house.
As I walked into my house I glanced at the clock knowing that Charlie would be home in about forty-five minutes. I quickly made Charlie's dinner, and it was ready just five minutes before he got there. Charlie didn't speak to me as he ate, and left the kitchen. I cleaned up. and went up to my room. I went and turned my computer on and checked my email. Seeing that I didn't have and emails I turned it off. I picked up my book, and continued reading till around eight-thirty. I took a shower and went to bed. I slept peacefully till I was woken up by Charlie at five o'clock.
"Hey Bells it rained really bad last night, and it's going to be raining some more today so they canceled school you can go back to sleep if you want." I nodded and snuggled lightly into my pillow. "Oh and I don't have work today so I'm going fishing with Billy so bye Bella" he told me and I heard my bedroom door close. I fell asleep soon after.
I woke up about nine o'clock, got dressed, and ate some cereal. As I was putting my bowl in the sink there was a knock on the door. I went over quickly to answer it. I was shocked by who was on the other side of the door when I opened it. Jacob was standing there soaked by the rain in only a T-shirt and some shorts. "J-Jacob," I chocked slightly and swallowed hard, "Why are you here?" I asked.
"Bella I came to apologize to you for what I did," he said walking into the house, and he went to the living room, and sat down. "I can't say I didn't know what I was doing, but I can say I wasn't in the right state of mind when I did it. I know that's no excuse, but I hope one day you can forgive me for what I did," he explained his voice full of sorrow and regret.
"What do you mean not in the right state of mind Jake are you okay?" I asked.
"After what I did you still worry about me. But I can't tell you what I mean by that I really wish I could, but I can't. But I can help. Bella think back to the legend I told you about the cold ones, and what there only enemies are," he said, and then it seemed like he couldn't continue.
"I'll try Jacob I promise, but can you promise me that you won't ever do anything to me again?" I asked.
"Yes, I promise; I know you won't forgive me anytime soon or maybe ever, but I'll try to get your trust back and see if I can stop Charlie form hurting you. But I need to go now Bella," he told me, and ran out of the house.
I closed the door behind him and began to shake realizing how scared I had been having him here. I knew he was right it would take a very long time for me to ever trust him again if I ever did.
The rest of the day I thought over what Jacob had said. Charlie called at five o'clock, and said he would be staying at Billy's to watch the game, and wouldn't be home till tomorrow. After I got off the phone with him I went back to thinking about the legends, and soon I came a crossed it in my mind. The only enemies of the cold ones were the wolves of the tribe. I gasp as I realized what Jacob was, and that this world was full of many things people weren't suppose to know of. Things that everyone was suppose to believe were just myths, l things like vampires and werewolves.
Late that night I grabbed the phone, and dialed Billy's home Jacob was the one who picked up. "Jacob I know what you were trying to tell me. You're a werewolf, and it somehow messed with your head." I said quickly.
"Yeah Bells your right," he answered, and I took a deep breath. "Bella I'm sorry, but I have to get off here," he said hand hung up.
After that I went upstairs, and went to sleep feeling like I'd been drained of all my energy after what I had found out.
"Damn!" I yelled slamming my fist down on the desk just soft enough not to break it.
"What is it Edward?" Rose came up beside me and asked.
"We don't have any school tomorrow either."
"Edward you know what Carlisle said. If she doesn't tell us before Saturday you go down there, and find some way to get her out of there, or help her without Charlie knowing," she reminded me.
"I know that, but I was hoping that maybe she would tell us before Saturday," I answered her.
"We might be able to, but that is our other option. I want her out of there just as much as you do Edward, but we need to give her time," she said reprimanding me.
"We don't have time to wait for her to tell us it's Tuesday, and the next day well get to see her is Thursday. Do you really believe that she will tell us in two days?" I questioned her.
"She might but remember we still have the backup plan," she reminded me.
"Fine I'll give it time," I told her relaxing again.
I didn't hear anything from Jacob on Tuesday, and that afternoon Charlie came back home from Billy's house. Charlie didn't hurt me after he got back, and I had School on Thursday. Charlie had left before I got up, and Edward wasn't outside my house today so I drove to school.
I saw the Cullen's cars, but I didn't see them so I just went to my classes. At lunch I saw them sitting at the table as always.
"Hello Bella," Edward smiled at me.
"Hello Edward," I told him, and I saw Rose wink, and I blushed lightly, and hoped no one saw.
"So how was your time at home Bella?" Jasper asked.
"It was boring," I answered, and took a bite of food.
"Bella are you going to the hospital on Friday?" Alice questioned in a soft voice.
"Yea," I smiled; "I'll get to finally get rid of these," I told her gesturing to my crutches, and splint.
The rest of the conversation was light, but it seemed like everyone was worried about something. After lunch I stopped Edward at his locker as the hallways cleared out.
"Edward," I said getting his attention, "Can we meet somewhere this week so we can talk? I have some things to ask you," I asked nicely.
"Yea Bella that's fine, I have some things to ask you as well. Is it okay if I come to your house after school?" he smiled.
I thought quickly Charlie had to work late today so that wouldn't be a problem, "That sounds fine, and I think the bells about to ring we better go," I told him, and he nodded as we walked to class.
The rest of the day went by normally except for me worrying all day about what I was going to ask Edward. I went home, and did my homework, and Edward went, and dropped off the others and pulled up to my house. I heard and knock and got the door.
"Hi come in," I told him.
"Hello Bella," he smiled at me and followed me to sit on the couch. "So what is it you wanted to ask me Bella?"
I took a deep breath, "Please don't be offended by anything I say if I'm wrong," he nodded his head, and I continued. "I was trying to think of some way to explain how you got to me so quickly on the stairs that day. The only thing that I could think of that added up even a little bit was an old Quileute that Jake told me." I stated and I saw him become tense.
"The legend was about the cold ones and nothing added up really except for the name Carlisle Cullen. The cold ones are what we would call vampires. So what I'm trying to ask is are you something that isn't human? Are you a vampire?" I asked trying to avoid eye contact.
"Yes," he whispered then continued, "I would understand if you're afraid of us now."
I smiled at him, "Thanks for telling me the truth, and I'm not afraid of you. You have given me no reason to think you would hurt me," I told him, and a small smile appeared on his face.
"So you're not going to run away screaming?" he question, and the smile turned into a smirk.
"No you're probably a lot less scary then some other people I know," I laughed, and I saw Edward's smile disappear. "Did I say something wrong?"
"No, it's just that's why I came over here today. I wanted to know if you were okay," he took a deep breath then, "if you had gotten hurt again," he whispered the last part.
"No I'm fine," I said, glad that for once it was a true statement not a lie.
"Bella can you promise me something?"
"Promise me if you get hurt in any way you tell me," he said.
"I promise," I agreed.
"Can you tell me why you were crying the other day?" he questioned.
I sighed, "No I can't do that. I'm sorry," I apologized letting my head fall and my hair cover my face.
Edward moved his hand to my cheek, and gently turned my head so I was looking at him. "Bella I just want to help you. When you're ready tell me; I'll do everything I can to help you, and so will the rest of my family," he assured me.
"I know, but I'm not sure if you can help right now," I told him.
Edward nodded and stood up then "I understand Bella. I think I should go now we'll discuss everything some other time. I need to go inform my family of your insight into what we are. Goodbye Bella I'll see you tomorrow," he said, and I heard him mumble something else, but I couldn't make out what he said.
"Goodbye Edward I'll see you," I told him back, and he waved lightly, and walked out of the house.
"Goodbye Bella I'll see you tomorrow," I told her and turned and whispered, "Be careful, I love you," under my breath sure she wouldn't hear it.
"Goodbye Edward I'll see you," she said, and I waved to her as I walked to my car.
I climbed into my car knowing I had made a little success with her trust, knowing she wasn't afraid of us and that I had told her the truth helped that. But now I had to go home, and tell my family that she knew. And we only had one day left till her cast was off.
