I sat there for over an hour thinking about the different ways i could do this. Each choice had up and down sides. By 6:45 the sun was out and glaring.
"Bella? what are you doing here, not that im like upset or anything, just curious." Jared's voice surprised me. I looked up and saw that he laughing like a maniac. But, after a few awckward seconds, he calmed down and sat down next to me.
"Oh, sorry, i was just...um.. thinking."
"cool." he said, with a smile.
"So what are you doing down here?" I asked, cheered up that i had someone to talk to.
"Oh, i was just going to hang out down here until i could go see kim."
I should have known- Kim was his soul mate, his other half, Ever since he'd imprinted on her, he never wanted to leave her side.
"Oh," I smiled. "so, why cant you go down now?" I asked, confused.
"Oh so your trying to get rid of me, are you?" he asked laughing.
"No,i was just wondering."
"Her mom has a thing about her not having visitors until 9 A.M."
"Oh, sorry." I said hugging me briefly.
He shrugged. "It's cool, i guess." He smiled.
"So, are you having secret meetings without me now?" Jacob's husky voice suddenly was right behind me. I filled with joy seeing his smiling face.
"No, we were just talking."
He nodded, laughter in his brown eyes, suddenly his eyes took on a more serious look.
"What's on your mind, Bells." He asked, brushing a stray hair from my face.
"Nothing." I said, averting my eyes from his face, hoping he would drop it.
He sat down next to me.
"You're a horrible liar, Bella." he said with a hint of amusement is his eyes.
Sensing it'd be best if he left, Jared rose to his feet.
"Well, I guess I'll letyou two talk, I'm gonna go now." He said, walking off.
By the time he was out of earshot, I decided it would be best if I just told the truth, and I told him everything that happened last night.
His eyes darkened when he heard the last part...the part about me becoming a vampire.
When I finished, I waited for him to speak, nervouse about what he would say.
"Bella, do you not think that we can protect you?"
I could tell he was annoyed.
"I..um...I dont know. It's not really that I'm afraid for me, im more afraid for you and your friends." I said honestly.
"If something happened to you," icontinued, "I wouldnt know what to do."
A tear rolled down my cheek. "It'd be all my fault."
His eyes softened and he relaxed.
"Bella, those Volturi dont stand a chance against all of us. You have to have a little faith in us. All of us will be fine. I promise,. So dont worry about us, we can handle them.
He pulled me into his arms and kissed my lightly.
After hearing this, I realized that I should have some faith in them. Jacob was right. I think. I hope
