Ring! Ring! Ring!

I looked at my cell phone when I pulled it from my purse. It was Rosalie and I frowned. She was probably calling me to see how my day went. I hit ignore and I went to take a shower. I planned on going to see Rosalie and my brother. I just prayed that they were not getting down and dirty when I arrived.

Ring! Ring! Ring!

I hit the ignore button and I groaned. I sent her a text message telling her I was about to shower and that I would call her soon. It was more likely she would see me at the front door. I then quickly jumped into the shower, thinking of how I was going to approach one of my very best friends. I wasn't going to yell at her but I had a right to know if she knew Jacob taught at the school, right?

BPOV

Just like I had thought before, I was standing in front of Alice's door. I had questions and I was pretty sure that Alice knew them already, those running around in my head. It was the least that she could do. I wanted to know if she knew that Jacob Black was working at the school. No, I wasn't too upset about it, especially about how good-looking the guy had become over the last year. He was probably every female teacher's eye candy. I knew he was mine.

"Alice, open the door!" I called through the door, knocking loudly. "I know you're here. I can hear you moving around."

It was funny because Alice was usually quiet. I didn't even want to know what had her making all those loud noises to begin with. I just prayed to God that Alice and Jasper were not having sex. I wouldn't be able to stomach that. Ew, just thinking about it made me sick to my stomach.

I then watched the door open, revealing a perky Alice with Rosalie standing beside her with the same smile on her face. Those two were too happy and I saw that my crazy brother, Emmett, and Jasper were standing behind them. Yeah, I was confused, so I knew that I was going to be here for a while.

"What the flippin' fuck have you two done?" I asked angrily, as I held up my hand to stop Jasper and Emmett from saying anything. I felt Alice pull me inside as Rosalie shut the door. "What have you two done?"

"Calm down, Bells," Jasper said, as he placed his hand on my shoulder. I shrugged it off.

"No… which one of you got me the job at the school, and did you guys know that Jacob Black is a teacher and a damn coach at that forsaken school?" I asked, as I turned to look at Alice. "You did this, didn't you?"

Alice sighed but Rosalie spoke up. "Bella, we just want you to be happy. You're a college graduate and we thought you would be happy being a teacher. You haven't even tried dating, have you? How long has it been?"

Ugh, I really hated it when Rosalie put me on the spot because it was frustrating. "No, I haven't dated anyone, Rosalie. I think it has been at least two years since I tried. Guys nowadays are just so immature and you know how particular I am when it comes to dating…"

"Yeah, we all know," Emmett said with a roll of his eyes, crossing his arms over his chest. He sighed heavily. "I mean… every single guy is not going to be like Edward."

"Can you guys go and get dinner? I think this is time for some girl time." Alice asked.

Before I could say anything, the door opened and closed, and I turned to the girls. "You guys… what are you trying to do? Did you get me this job at the school?"

"That was all Alice. Honestly, we didn't know that Jake was a teacher since we don't really talk to him about his job. I just thought that he was a coach," Rosalie told me with a smile, as she placed a hand on my shoulder. She smiled over at me with a grin when the three of us sat down on the couch.

"Well, apparently, he teaches next door to my classroom. It's rather annoying," I said with a roll of my eyes, remembering today's events. "I mean… he interrupted a few of my classes asking for several items like a textbook, a pencil, colored pencils – the list goes on and on. My students thought that he was great…"

"Well, he's pretty great, and he was a pretty good boyfriend in high school. He helped me through the toughest time," she said with a frown.

I knew what she was talking about. Rosalie had been raped and Jacob had been her support system. It was when they had broken up because she couldn't be intimate with him, along with the fact that they were better friends, anyway. For that reason, I had to admit that I was glad that Jacob Black was there for Rosalie.

"Still, he seems cocky and arrogant," I said with a shake of my head.

"Isn't that the same thing?"

I rolled my eyes at Alice's words. "That's not the point. Anyways, Alice, why did you get me that job at the school? You know very well that I have too many memories of Edward there."

"Yeah, that is true, but you can make new ones with Jacob," Alice said with a twinkle in her eyes.

"Oh, Alice, what am I going to do with you?"

JASPOV

I laughed at Emmett's choice of foods, watching the waitress widen her eyes because she was shocked by how much food that Emmett had ordered. He had ordered four containers of Chinese food just for himself. I honestly did not know where the food went. I, on the other hand, made sure to order the rest of the food that would last for days for Alice, Rosalie, Bella, and myself.

"Do you think it's going to work?"

"What's going to work, man?" Emmett asked with a confused look on his face. I took a bite of the egg Rangoon that the server had given him.

"You never pay attention when someone isn't talking about your sexual encounters with Rose or food," I said with a shake of my head, and I crossed my arms over my chest as I leaned back against the wall. "Do you think that their plan of getting Bella with him is going to work?"

"I don't know. My sister's a very smart girl and she was very much in love with Edward. There are a lot of memories of Edward there, so I don't know. I hate seeing her alone. It's depressing," Emmett said with a frown on his face, and he inhaled a deep breath. "All I know is that I want her to be happy."

"We all want her to be happy but they had dated for a while, man. Edward and Bella were truly happy," I told Emmett as I bit my lip, looking around the restaurant.

"And he was a cheater too."

I looked to my side to see Jacob Black sitting in the occupied seat. He had a baseball cap in his hand and a book in his lap. He was a different guy than he was in high school because he never, ever once read a book in high school. At least, that's what I remembered the more I thought about it. Jacob and I had both been on the track team together.

"What the fuck, man?"

"Come on, Emmett – cool it," I said in a hushed tone as I glanced at Jacob. "Is this a joke?"

JPOV

I rolled my eyes. Of course Edward Cullen had never been caught, but everyone had told Rosalie that I had cheated on her. Rosalie had doubted me so many times but I had never been unfaithful to her or any girl I tried dating in college. I watched the guys take a seat on either side of me.

"Why do you think Edward left to go to a different college than Bella when she got accepted to UCLA?"

"We thought he got denied. At least that's what he told us," Jasper said hesitantly.

I shook my head. "He got Tanya Denali pregnant…"

"No shit! Edward didn't – no, he wouldn't!"

"Well, he did," I said, with a shake of my head.

It really didn't bother me that they didn't believe me. Edward had everyone fooled that he had been faithful to Isabella Swan and it didn't surprise me from the shocked expressions on both Emmett McCarty and Jasper Hale's faces. No, it really didn't, and it didn't bother me. I never liked Edward to begin with. It wasn't just because he cheated on Bella but it just irked me that he could get someone like her.

"How do you know that he cheated on Bella? I mean, you never talked to him," Emmett said with a shake of his head as he glanced over at me, finishing off the food he had in his hand. "Why would you even tell us that he did this? It's not like you cared about Bella since you were a dick to her in school!"

"Yeah, I was a dick, but do you remember when Edward left early at Bella's birthday party, the dinner that Alice and you guys worked up?" I asked softly, as I looked over at them. When they nodded, I continued. "Well, I decided to see where he was going, and he ended up going to Tanya's."

Jasper actually looked disgusted and he heard the lady behind the counter call their name. "This changes everything. Did you ever confront him?"

"Oh yeah, I confronted him all right, but he just denied it. He lied about getting accepted at UCLA. He wanted to do the right thing, so he and Tanya went to college down in Miami just in case Bella would ever see them," I told them with a shake of my head. "I overheard Edward talking to his father."

"Bella is going to flip when she finds this out!" Jasper exclaimed.

"No man!" Emmett growled as he shook his head, and he ran a hand through his black hair. "Bella was so in love with him and I need to make sure that this is the truth. No offense, Jake."

I shrugged my shoulders and I looked at the guys when my food was ready. "I don't care, man. I just thought that she deserves the truth and I can't honestly tell her since she already thinks I'm the same from high school."

"Are you eating alone?" Jasper asked, after I had grabbed my food. "I mean, you could always join us. We're just eating with the girls. Bella will be there."

"Man!" Emmett laughed hard, his booming laugh entering the Chinese restaurant and causing a few glances to look our way. "I think that Alice's personality is rubbing off on you."

"Well, I wouldn't want to intrude," I said hesitantly, kind of hoping that Bella would be there. I looked over at the guys when we walked out of the restaurant.

"Oh please! Rose will be happy to see you and Alice loves company!" Emmett exclaimed, punching me in the shoulder. I laughed.

"What about Bella? I mean, I assume that she is with the girls."

"Eh, Bella can tough it out," Emmett said with a grin, as he looked over at me again. "I promise you it won't be so bad. Besides, it's a Friday night. No one should even go to bed early. We're at Jasper's place. Just follow us."

I didn't even have a chance because the guys were walking to Emmett's truck and I rolled my eyes once again. I just hoped that I didn't just mess up things. That wouldn't be so good, especially since I worked at the same school as the beautiful Isabella Swan.
