Even after saving him in Italy he didn’t want me back. I hoped that maybe he would, but he didn’t. The worst part was, as well as losing him; I had to lose Alice again too. The fake cascade he had put on because he felt guilty, replayed in my head a million times over. I didn’t like being lied to. Keeping his distance so I knew that he was going to bolt as soon as he got the chance was better than being lied to.
“Bella, Its Jacob on the phone.” Charlie shouted up the stairs. I pulled back the covers letting my feet touch the cold ground, I shivered when they did. “Bells?” Charlie called again. “Yeah I’m just coming dad.” I called back. Ah, my voice was all croaky. I made my way slowly down in an attempt not to trip over. “Hello?” I said into the receiver as I took the phone off Charlie. “Bella, are you ok?” Jacob asked. I nodded. “I’m ok.” My coração lurched forward. That was not at all true. “Bella...” Jacob warned. I really wasn’t very good at the whole lying thing. “Charlie’s going to work soon right?”He asked quickly. “So I’ll come up and we can talk ok?”
“Mmm Hmm” I muttered down the phone. “Everything will be ok I promise.” He said softly, and then hung up. I really didn’t want Jacob anymore involved with this as he already was. “I’ve got to go I’m late for work.” Charlie huffed. “Ok dad.” He turned around to look at me as he reached the door. “Remember you’re still grounded, so you can’t leave the house.” I nodded biting my nails. “Well ok then. See you later Bells.” A moment later I heard his police cruzador pull away from the house. I went to the bathroom. After one look in the mirror, I started pulling my hairbrush through my awfully enrolados hair and then hopped into the shower. A while later I got out drying myself off and getting dressed. There was a knock at the door. It must be Jacob. “Come in.” I called. I headed down stairs but the doors didn’t open. “Odd.” I thought. I decided to answer the door if he wasn’t going to let himself in. But it wasn’t who I thought it was. Oh no It was far from who I thought it was.
