Bella’s POV

I heard Alice screaming at Edward, but I couldn’t really make out what she was saying. All I heard was, Edward, ass, and need her. All of a sudden Alice was sitting on my bed.

She looked at the floor, not meeting my gaze. I had to ask the question; I had to know no matter how much it hurt. So I controlled my sobs and tried to speak.

“Alice… wa-was that E-Edward on the phone?”

She sighed then softly responded. “Yes, Bella, I’m sorry. He is just being an ass right now. He called to check on you. He really does care about you.”

She sighed. After a few minutes of silence, she decided to break it.

“Did you happen to hear what I said to him?” she spoke uneasily.

“No, what did you say to him?”

“Oh, nothing important. So what are we going to do for the rest for the day?” She plastered a fake, reassuring smile on her face as she finally looked at me.

I was nervous, why did she not want to tell me, what did she say to him?

“Alice, what did you say to him and why are you so reluctant to tell me?”

“Really it was nothing. I just told him he was being a jerk, that’s all. So what do you want to do next?”

“Fine. Do you want to help me clean the rest of the house?”

“Sure, I’d love to!”

For the rest of the day we cleaned and cleaned. She never brought up Jacob or Edward.

*********************

Charlie came home around nine and I told him that dinner was in the fridge and I was going to bed early. Alice followed me upstairs. We sat on my bed and talked for another hour or so.

When she brought up today’s earlier events, I remembered that I had promised Jacob I would come and visit him tomorrow. I wanted to ask Alice if that would be ok, but I was afraid she wouldn’t let me go or might leave while I was gone, but I had to ask.

“Alice, can I ask you something and you promise to try to understand?”

“Sure, what’s the question?”

“Well… I told Jacob that I would come to La Push tomorrow? Do you mind?”

“Of course not... You know I really should go anyway. It’s time; maybe tomorrow would be the best.”

“No, please don’t go yet, Alice!” it threw my arms around her, as I if was trying to hold her in place, as if I could really do any good.

She didn’t respond instead she sat there and thought deeply for a while. “Ok, about I make you a deal?”

I nodded, removing my hands grasping her arms. “I’ll leave tomorrow, but I’ll be back in a week, I promise. Then from then on I will come every two weeks to check on you. I’ll stay for three days each time.”

“Ok, I guess that isn’t too bad. You promise that you’ll come back?”

“Of course! I promise!”

“Ok deal!” we shook hands and I was starting to believe that this could work.

“You should get some sleep now; you have a big day tomorrow.” She smiled at me and I wondered what she had seen, but I was way too tired to ask. I would find out tomorrow.

“I will go down stairs and tell Charlie about our deal.”

“Ok, but promise me that you won’t leave till I wake up and get to say goodbye tomorrow?”

“I promise, goodnight.” She gracefully stepped out the door and down the stairs, closing the door behind her.

I heard faint voices of Charlie and Alice talking downstairs. Once my head hit the pillow I was out.
