Now on with Chapter 4 of God Blessed Texas

Bella POV:

When I woke up there was this odd sound, plus it was kinda bumpy. Then I thought back to the plane ride and everything made sense again.

I opened my eyes and was confused a bit. I looked around and I was no longer on a plane, but we were still moving. When I fully opened my eyes I saw that we were in face on a bus. It wasn't a school bus I used to ride to kindygarden, it was so much better. The seats were cushy, plus every few rows of seats there was a small television. I looked around and there wasn't very many people on this bus so I decided to go and change it to NCIS.

I didn't fully understand the concept of the show, but I think Tony is really cute, and Gubbs is funny. Abby is cool too, I especially like her vouce.

I sat back down and then realized that Jasper was no where to be seen. I started to panic, I mean he had to be here, he couldn't have just laid me on the bus then just leave me.

Just then Jasper poped back into his seat next to mine. Instantly I was calmed...that was weird, how did I just calm down so easily?

I decided that it was just a coinencidencea and went back to watching my show.

"Are you sure you're allowed to watch this?"

I grumbled a bit then answered, "Yes, in fact Sophie let's me watch it all the time." Sophie was my babysitter. She watched me when daddy had to go to work late, so I watchd it a lot.

Daddy was even nice enought to buy me all of the seasons.

I had them with me. I mean they were my favorite, and I wanted to keep it that way.

"Who's Sophie?"

"Sophie was my babysiter when my daddy had to go to work."

Jasper didn't say much after that. Not because there wasn't anything to say, I just apparently answered his question. There was silence, but it was the awkward kind that daddy had with a couple of ladies at the grocery store.

I wondered how much longer it would be til we got to wherever Jasper and his family lived. Then I rememered that he didn't even tell me where we were heading.

"Jasper, you never did tell me where you and your family live."

It was like he didn't want to actually tell me, but I couldn't understand why. I was about to ask him again, when the bus started to squeal. Apparently I got my wish and we were here.

"My family and I live in Washington, the state. It's a rather small town by the name of Forks."

Forks? What a weird name for a town. Was there a town near by name Spoons? (Ok, I don't mean any harm, I'm just trying to show some of Bella's humor) "No, actually there's not."

Did I say that out loud? I felt my face start to get a bit warm. I hated when that happened, because then people could tell that I was in fact embarrassed. Daddt always said it was easy to tell when I was embarrassed. I never thought so until just now. When daddy would tease me I remember mommy start to laugh. If I thought hard enough I could still somewhat remember her laugh.

Myeyes started to get filled up with tears. I tried to hold them back, and was doing pretty good job.

"Aww darlin', why you crying?"

"I was just remembering my mommy and daddy and how much I really miss them."

"Well that's fine sweethear, it's normal to miss your mom and dad. It's even normal to cry when you miss someone."

That did it. I started crying and leaned into his side. He was trying to make me feel better, but that made me cry even more.

I cried until I was all out of tears.

"Hey, yous two's need ta get off da bus. I needs ta get back on da road." (Ok, imagine the driver having a New York accent)

I frowned at the man. He was being a meany. I mean he could've been a lot nice to me. Jasper got up and let me out so he could grab our bags.

Out of the stack I grabbed my backpack and put in on my shoulders. I slowly made my way towards the front and I got a better look at the rude man.

He had a round belly that reminded me of Santa Clause, but without the white beard. Plus Santa was a lot nicer. He really didn't have a lot of hair on his head, but he did have some.

"Hey yous", I looked around and saw no one around and I pointed to myself. "yea yous, yous got some sorta starin problem?"

I was stunned into silence. I didn't know what to say.

"What, yous can't talk neither?"

I was about to say something, but was cut off of Jasper.

"Hey leave her alone, she's just a little girl!"

"I's don't give a crap, you's both need's ta get off of my bus."

What happened next scared me. Jasper ran up to the man and grabbed him by his shirt collar, and was in his face. He was snarling like some sort of animal. The only other time I heard that was when he was protecting me from Maria.

I ran over to Jasper. I needed to get him away from the man before he did something he'd regret.

I was tugging on his sleeve and telling him that he needed to let him go. After a few times he finally let the man go.

"You bastard, will be's hearin from my lawyer"

"Not if I speak to your supervisor first and explain how you were harassing this little girl."

I gave the bus driver a smug smile and walked off the bus. It wasn't very bright out. I looked up and it was really cloudy. I liked it in Houston, it was always sunny. This weather I'll have to get used to.

"Is this Forks?"

"Not quite, this is Olympia. We're meeting my father here. He's going to make sure that you're splint is set right and then we will drive back with him to Forks."

This made sense of course. At least I would be able to meet his family soon. It feels as if I've been on this journey for days, but it's only been about two. I was actually very impatient to meet his family. I knew that if they were anything like Jasper I was going to love them just as much.

We walked throught the bus station and was walking throught the front doors. I looked around for them. Then I remembered that I don't even know what his father looks like.

"Jasper, son, I'm glad to see that you made it out alright. Alice told us that Maria and you faught. Hello, nice to meet you. My name is Carlisle, what's your name."

"My full name is Isabella Marie Swan, but I like to be called Bella better."

"Well then Bella, let me go ahead and check out your arm...well, it seems that Jasper did an exceptional job. Nice work son."

Jasper just nodded. Carlisle helped put the bags into the back of his silver car. It was very shiny. I liked it alot. I got into the back seat. I was strapped into a booster seat. I always did hate those things. I always felt uncomfortable in them.

As we drove away I started to get sleepy. I always did fall asleep when I was riding in a car. I don't know why, I just did.


"Bella darlin', we're here."

I opened my eyes and saw that we were in fact already at their house. I was unbuckled and helped out of the car. I grabbed my spongebob backpack and started to make my way around the car when I was grabbed and pulled into a big hug by somone.

"Alice, be careful she is breakable you know."

"Yes Rose I know that. It's just so good to finally put a face with the name."

"Yes, I finally have someone to play video games with."

"Emmett calm down you'll scare the poor little girl."

"Sorry Esme."

So the big teddy bear looking guy was Emmett, Rose was the blonde haired girl, Alice was the girl who was about a foot taller than me. That just left the man who was standing as far away from me as possible. He had hair the color of a penny. His eyes looked strange. He looked at me as if I were a snack. I started to have an uneasy feeling when I looked at him. It made me nervous.

He then just ran off back into the house. I felt bad, was it something I did? "Jasper, why did your other brother run away from me?"

"Oh darlin' he didn't run away from you, he went to go finish up your room that you'll be staying in while you're living here."

For some reason I didn't completely believe him. It was also because the expressions on the others faces looked both embarrassed and ashamed.

They were hiding something from me, I just didn't know what.
