For a year I had been holding myself up for Charlie. Trying to act like his leaving didn't matter to me. That was after my catatonic first week till Charlie threatened to send me to Renee. The little hope that he will come was crushed in few months only. I tried to convert the love that I felt towards him into hatred but in my heart I knew it wasn't possible. I'll love him forever and ever, no matter what. I couldn't hate him, it was against my nature. Though I had perfected my ability to lie, to lie that I was fine, to lie that it didn't matter, to lie...
And looking in Alice's eyes, a seed of hope germinated inside me which I wanted to pluck immediately.
"Bella I know I have a hell lot of explaining to do, so let's just sit down" she said softly, making me sit as she took the chair in front of me.
"Alice, I don't know whether I should be happy or not? Just tell me has he come back to play with my heart again? I am not strong enough to go through all of that again. Please tell me why you left, that too with no goodbye? Was I not worth it?" My voice was dripping with self pity which I hated immediately.
Her voice was pained but determined when she spoke again "Bella, we're not going to move this time. I am sorry for leaving you with no goodbye but Edward forced us to, he said a clean break would be better"-she paused a little for me to digest the words and to lighten her tone-"And I won't touch any other topic as they are his areas of discussion. So tell me did you make any good friends?" she asked further lightening her tone.
I smiled; I did make plenty of friends. After Edward left, I was forced by Charlie to accompany him on his frequent trips to La Push. I started hanging with Jacob Black (and his buddies) there and we became best friends. He was the one who broke my shell. We had a mutual understanding of not mentioning my early months in Forks. They were werewolves. He had tried to stay away for my sake (that I might hate him or be scared of him) but like he says "Who's scared of the big, bad wolf". But I couldn't talk freely about this with Alice. Jake had made me swear not to tell anyone about his secret. But if he knew about vampires then they should also know about him. So I decided to tell Alice.
"Yeah, I made plenty of friends. And they are… well …werewolves. The Quileute's turn into wolves whenever there are vampires around. They know Carlisle from a long time ago. Were you there with him back then?" I said in a rush.
I saw her jaw drop and knew I shouldn't have dropped the bomb like this. I heard a tree break and suddenly I was face to face with a livid angel. A very livid angel.
He stood near the window glaring and his nostrils flared but he still looked glorious.
"BELLA, HOW COULD YOU BEFRIEND SUCH CREATURES?"-He was screaming on top of his lungs and he was waving his hands frantically-"WHEN I LEFT I WANTED YOU TO HAVE A NORMAL LIFE WITH NO DISRUPTIONS FROM ANY TYPE OF MYTHICAL CREATURES. DO YOU KNOW HOW DANGEROUS WEREWOLVES CAN BE? AND DO YOU REMEMBER THE PROMISE YOU MADE IN SEPTEMBER? I could feel the warmth of his burning eyes which I refused to meet.
Instead I glared at his perfect nose. With every word that came out of his mouth, my anger rose. It rose to the point where I couldn't control it and started shaking. If he could shout, so could I.
"HOW DARE YOU TRY AND TELL ME WHAT TO DO? ALL THE RIGHT THAT YOU HAD OVER ME WAS TAKEN BACK LAST SEPTEMBER. AND WHO ARE YOU TO CHOOSE MY FRIENDS? AND FOR YOUR KINDEST INFORMATION JAKE WAS THERE WHEN YOU LEFT ME. WHEN I NEEDED YOU THE MOST, HE WAS THERE. AND SCREW THE PROMISE. YOU CAME BACK AND I BEFRIENDED WOLVES. SCORES EVEN. I AM AS SAFE IN THE PRESENCE OF WOLVES AS I AM WITH VAMPIRES" I was shaking by the end of it. I took a deep breath all the while glaring at Edward's nose.
Suddenly Alice started clapping "WOW that was awesome Bella. Now I know that there is someone who can shut"-she got quiet when she saw Edward glaring-"oops sorry, please continue".
"It's alright Alice, there's nothing left to say. This is the end of the conversation. And you"-I pointed towards Edward-"please leave. And never come back to my house. Not during the day and neither during the night"
It was really hard. I loved Edward but I couldn't let him break my heart. I couldn't drown in water; I had to fight to stay on the surface. He left through the window without a word just a smooth mask.
I turned to face Alice "Alice, I need some alone time. So I'll talk to you later"
With this I went downstairs while Alice jumped out of the window…on her car probably.
Now I had some plans to cancel.
Jake picked up on second ring only. (Jake, bella)
Bella, you are sooo late. When are you going to come?
Jake, I am really tired. And I have some laundry to do, maybe next weekend. Please tell Charlie that I'll be at home only.
Bella, is everything alright? Do you want me to come over?
No, no you enjoy. I am fine, just tired. Thanks, love you
I hung up before the actual pleading started. What did I ever do to deserve this?
Bella disconnected the phone. Something was off about her voice and I was going to find out. I went to get the keys of my truck but Billy stopped me.
"Who was it Jake?"
"It was bella, she cancelled. I am going to her place. Can you tell Charlie? "
"Tell Charlie what? Hi Billy, Jake. What are talking about?" Charlie came inside our house and spoke.
"Nothing, Bella cancelled the plans today. So I was just going to get her" I spoke getting out of the house.
"NO, wait Jake. Let her be. She must be tired. Alice came so she must want to spend some time with her".
"Ok, I am going to my room" I said disappointed.
So the leeches were back. But are all of them back? And for how long? I'll go to her school and see for myself.
I would talk to her tomorrow.
