Baby Sitter

By kwildroudt

Drama / Romance

Chapter 1

EPOV

Ugh, I need a baby sitter. Who can I call? I need to leave in like 20 minutes. Maybe someone is on face book that I can ask.

I scroll through my friend list.

No....No....definitely no...no.

Ugh, is there anyone on here I can trust with my girls?

Oh! Perfect.

I grab my phone, enter her number and hit call, desperately hoping she’ll be free.

Come on, pick up.

“Hello.”

“Bella?” I ask, making sure the number is still hers.

“Yeah.”

“Hey, it’s Edward.”

I hope she remembers me.

A few seconds of silence pass, and I push away the idea that she’s forgotten me.

“Edward who?”

“Edward Cullen, your math teacher from high school.”

“Oh, Mr. Cullen, wow, it has been forever since I have seen you or even talked to you. How is everything?”

“Everything is good. I just need a huge favor?”

“Really? Well, what can I do?”

“Is there any way you could come by and watch my daughters for a couple of hours? I have to go to this huge meeting, and I have no one to watch them.”

“Of course, I will be there in about 15 minutes.”

“Awesome...and thank you so much.”

“No problem...see you soon.”

I give Bella my address and walk over to my girls.

“Hey, so my really good friend Bella is going to come over and watch you guys. Be good for her, ok?”

“Ok,” they both say at the same time. I sense that they are both a little anxious about a stranger coming by to look after them, but I know they’ll love Bella, so I don’t worry too much. She was so sweet to me when I taught her.

Wow, it doesn't feel like it has been six years since I have seen her. I hope it isn't awkward. It shouldn't be. Bella and I were friends her Senior year even though I wasn't her teacher at the time.

I finish getting ready.

15 minutes later...

The door bell rings. I go and get it. I open the door and it’s Bella. “Hey Bella, thank you so much for coming by on such short notice. You’re really saving the day!”

“Hey Mr. Cullen, and no problem.”

We walk into the living room where my girls are nervously sneaking glances in our direction.

“Gwen, Katie, this is Bella...Bella these are my girls.”

“Hi guys, nice to meet you,” Bella said.

They both went behind each of my legs.

“Come on girls, Bella is nice. Don't be shy.” They stay behind me. I smile at Bella.

“They will warm up to you.”

“No problem.”

I look at my watch. “I have to go...I will see you later. If you need anything you have my number and girls be good for Bella...I should be back in about two hours.” I give both my girls a kiss on the check and smile at Bella. I grab my car keys and head out.

While driving, all I good think about was I hope the girls will like Bella. I am sure they will. She is very sweet and seems to be good with kids.

BPOV

Edward pulls out of the drive way and I turn and look at the girls. “So, what do you guys want to do?” They both just stare at me. This is going to be a long couple of hours.

Marimar Amieva: I just can't believe the story! I absolutely loved it, all of it. The characters and their chemistry between them, and the fact that they are relatable. The story also has some sick plot twists, which I never saw coming. I loved the fact that it is an adorable love story but has its mystery touc...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

Alex Rushmer: Chapter One: Not much is happening in this chapter, but I was absolutely fascinated by the depth of your character development. I love how you just sat there with the reader and explored Eddward. Usually, that sort of thing gets boring very fast, but this was actually really cool! He's so unique ...

annie08c: I really like this story, I can relate to it a lot and with how she feels, the boyfriend and the events that happened but I'm a little bit younger.

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! I loved this book. The characters seemed so real. It was amazing how the author let Zak and Kaylees personalities slowly change. This story was very sad and eye opening. It could teach some people a very worthy lesson. It was a great combination of romance, mystery, and a...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...
