When we arrived at my house Charlie, my dad, was home. I slumped my book bag over my shoulder and climbed out of the truck. “I upendo you,” Edward whispered. “Love you.” I alisema back to him walking away. He got out of my truck and disappeared into the woods. I looked back at him but he was already gone. I walked inside the house to Charlie, who already ordered pizza and was watching ESPEN. I threw myself onto the kitanda and Charlie looked up from the TV. “Bells? What’s wrong?”
I spoke into the kitanda pillow. “Edward and his family are going away for a while and they don’t know exactly how long they’ll be.” I teared up in the mto but I wouldn’t look up at Charlie. I don’t want him see me cry over Edward. Charlie patted my shoulder. “Aww, Bells, it’ll be ok. I’m here for wewe and so are your other friends.” I smiled and looked up whipping my tears. “Thanks dad.”
I went into the jikoni to get a slice of pizza. Jake was sitting at the table. I whispered. “What the hell Jake. What if Charlie saw wewe in here!?” Jake laughed slightly. “He knows I’m here Bella.” He smiled “Right Charlie?” Charlie murmured yes as Jake got up, pulling me into a big kubeba hug. I gasped. “Jake- can’t- breath!” I hit his arm as he released me. I kissed his cheek and grabbed two sodas’s out of the fridge and tossed him one. I burst out laughing as he never waited for the soda to settle and the soda squirted all over his face as he opened it.
Jake tried to give me a hug, a sticky hug, so I screamed and ran up the stairs. Charlie looked back at us laughing as Jake chased me up the stairs. ‘Just like the old days,’ I thought.
