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.

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.

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...

sunshinebennybear: First, I would like to address the elephant in the room. The author forgets her own character's names. She mixed up Liam for Jace, Harri for Maiya, and Freya for Clary. I love The Mortal Instruments as much as the next fangirl, but I find myself unforgiving about this. Throughout the story there ...

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.
