I ran out the front door and to my truck. Today Jacob would not get away with ignoring me again. Today is the hari that I would get the jawapan that I have wanted for over the past week.
This time I was not shaking on the way to La Push. This time, I had something to prove. And being nervous would not help the cause. I had to prove that no girl should be treated the way that Jacob has been treating me lately.
This time I pulled up to his house swelling with confidence. I stood tall as I walked to the door, and knocked on it three times. My confidence just got knocked out of me when Jacob opened the door. I was really expecting Billy to answer the door. I did not plan to have the encounter this early. I thought I would have lebih time to plan it out the way that I wanted the confrontation to go.
And he looked so different! I mean, I could tell that it was him, but he was huge! Like an adult. I couldn't stop staring at him for that reason.
"Um...." Jacob said, breaking the silence.
I was seriously considering turning around and running for my life at this point. But I was all ready here and I didn't want to make a fool out of myself.
I couldn't think of anything to say.
"So.. um, anda look, uh, different. Taller," is what I finally stuttered out. It was the best that I could do. Anyway he should be the one to start talking, not me.
"Yeah... Bella, we have to talk. Would anda like to come in?" Jacob finally berkata after some lebih silence.
"Sure," I made it short so he wouldn't realize how suddenly nervous I was.
Jacob sat down on a sofa, kerusi panjang in the living room, and I sat on the one opposite of him.
"Bella, I am going to make this short and simple. I think we should see other people," Jacob berkata while staring into my eyes.
I had to look away to make sense of what he just said. So he wasn't going to tell me that he is a werewolf?
"Why?" I finally said.
"Well, we are young and we should get to know other people, that's all," Jacob replied easily.
I looked at him again. He did change. Probably because of the werewolf transformation. So, he was probably trying to protect me from himself. I could change his mind. Easily. I mean, Vampires are my best Friends so why can't my boyfriend be a werewolf?
"Jacob, Alice told me about anda being a werewolf. anda don't need to protect me from yourself. I know anda won't hurt me," I said, and when I looked up he was shaking violently.
"Alice told you?" he practically growled.
"Yes," I answered.
"What did she tell anda about werewolves?" he berkata almost controlling the shaking.
"She berkata that anda can transform into a serigala, wolf form. She berkata anda may be dangerous to be around. But if anda can get your temper under control then I'm fine. She berkata something about a treaty, because anda are the Vampires natural enemy. She berkata there was lebih but, she did not tell me anything else about you, she didn't tell me much," I replied rather quickly.
"She didn't say anything about when a werewolf impr- I mean, really that all?" Jacob said, sounding like he was hiding something.
"Yeah, that's all," I said, not caring about what he was hiding.
"Oh. Well I still think that we should see other people," Jacob said, while looking down.
"Oh, I see. I guess I should leave then," I said, wanting to get out before I completely broke down.
I got up and practically ran for the door. I heard Jacob try to say something but I didn't catch what he said. And I didn't care. I ran to my truck. Although I was running, the tears came before I made it to my truck. It was hard to drive through the tears. I was thinking about pulling over, but I really just wanted to get home, now.
Great. Charlie is home, probably for lunch, it's only about ten. I didn't have it in me to pull myself together for when I got in the house.
"Bella, what happened, are anda hurt?" Charlie asked very frantically.
"Jacob just broke up with me and I just want to be alone," I berkata before running up to my room.
I sat on my katil at I just could not stop the tears.
Ring. Ring. Ring.
My cell was ringing. Probably Alice. But I couldn't talk to her right now, I couldn't talk to anyone so I just turned my phone off. I would apologize to Alice later and she would understand.
Charlie did not bother checking on me. He was probably afraid to. For the first time I was happy that tomorrow was Monday and I would have school . Something to keep my mind off of Jacob. For today, I would probably lay in my katil and cry.
