I looked out the window in disbelief as my parents shuffled in and out of the house, taking mountains of moving boxes into the moving trucks with the other workers they had apparently hired. They hadn't even mentioned leaving. They just-left. I should have been royally pissed, but I couldn't find it in me to feel any emotion towards them. They are too self-absorbed to give a shit about their own flesh and blood. The moment that I fuck up I am disowned. They had obviously been waiting impatiently for that moment.
They put a strain on Edward and I. They called me a whore and told me to leave Edward. They were the fuck ups.
They would never understand that I got knocked up with the person that I have already decided I will spend the rest of my life with. They also didn't know that this child will be spoiled beyond belief by everyone in my life.
"Bella?" I heard Alice calling.
"Yes?" I answered monotonously.
"Are you okay?" Alice asked me softly.
"I think so." I smiled ruefully.
"Do you want to talk about it?" She offered.
"I'd really rather not." I told her just above a whisper.
"I can wait."
I smiled to myself and turned to her.
"Ally, go find everyone else and you guys do something fun. I need to be alone. Besides, I have to go ask one last thing of my parents."
"Are you sure?" She tilted her head to the side.
"Yes." I smiled as convincingly as I could.
I expected one of them to come up here to see if I was alright, but no one did. I saw them all leave and I was alone in this big house. As I sat in silence, I regretted not asking Edward to stay with me. There were a lot of things we needed to talk about. I needed to talk to him about my fears.
I stared at my phone, tempted to call him and ask him to come back home. But I quickly stop myself, knowing that though I knew he loved me, he needed to be with his family for a little while. Separation is healthy in a relationship.
I heard a knock on the door, and walked downstairs to see who it was. My jaw clenches in anger as I saw who was standing there. Jacob Fucking Black.
I couldn't believe that I let Alice convince me to go on this stupid family outing to the bowling alley. However, I knew that Bella wanted to be alone so she can go and get her parents to sign the papers. Doesn't mean I wouldn't have liked to be there. I wanted my Bella. I wanted her beside me. I want to see her smile and laugh and be happy.
I wanted us to have time to be a normal couple even if it was only for a few hours. I wanted us to have time to forget the fact that we were having a baby as Seniors in high school. Most of all, I wanted her to forget the problems with her parents. I wanted everything to melt away.
"Edward, get you head out of your ass! You're up." Emmett yelled at me.
I grabbed the bowling ball, gave Emmett a pointed look, and bowled a strike easily. "Is my head really up my ass Emmett?" I raised an eyebrow cockily.
"Fucker." He muttered.
I just smiled.
"Don't be so smug."
I laughed quietly. Emmett always talked like a bad ass, but could never live up to his words.
We played out our game and grabbed a giant pizza once we finished. We were laughing and joking as a family, and I couldn't remember the last time we had done this.
"Why are you here?" I snapped.
"I wanted to see you now that you moved back. I thought that maybe we could talk?"
"What could we possibly have to talk about?"
"What the fuck are you on? There is no us. There is you and there is me. But there is no 'us' anymore, Jacob."
"Why did you move back?" He asked pointedly.
"I got pregnant and I needed help so I moved in with the Cullen's. Did you even realize that we are at their house?."
"This is the Cullen's house?"
"Yes, you idiot."
"Why are you living with them? So you can fuck what's his face whenever you want?"
"I GOT KICKED OUT, YOU FUCKING DOUCHE!" I yelled at him, infuriated. I tried to slam the door in his face but he caught it and stops me before I could fully close it. He forced his way inside and I ran from him.
He grabbed my arm once he caught up to me. "No need to run. I am going to talk and you will listen."
I wanted to go home now that our bowling was done, but Alice convinced me that we could stay out and talk for a little bit longer. "Bella needs time." She had told me.
I agreed begrudgingly. But I couldn't ignore the gnawing feeling that Bella needed my help.
