I yawned loudly, then stretched across the lit I was almost too big for. The night I dreamnt I'd saved Bella from being Lost in the woods, abandoned from Edward, really freaked me out. I wanted to make sure I wasn't REALLY dreaming. So, I went over to Bella's house.
Charlie answered the door.
"Is Bella home?" I asked nervously. I wasn't sure why I was nervous. Whenever I came over to Bella's I always felt this warm, energetic feeling inside me that brang a huge white glimmering smile to my browned face. I was, most likely, nervous because that night might not've been a dream. What if it was all real? I shook my head as if to shake the bad memories from my thoughts.
"Yeah. Upstairs." He answered sleepily. I hope I hadn't woke him up. I walked in, slipped off the untied muddy, crusted construction boots I'd worn over. I quickly headed up the stairs. I remember which door was Bella's. I knocked lightly, which for others wasn't so lightly. I tried to contain my hidden strength.
"Come in.." She coughed out. Was she sick?
"Heeey, Bella. What's up?"
"Uhh!" Crap. That was probably the worst time to enter. She was in micro tiny shorts and a loose thread tank top. Comforter covered her legs up to her knees. Her mascara smudged under her eyes. She was crying. She held a box of Kleenex in her lap. Soft tufts of pale cream, almost white, scatered the room.
I quickly turned around and started to leave the small room.
"No, sorry Jake, toi can stay.. toi just surprised me, what are toi doing here so early?"
"I just wanted to come say 'Hi' to my mud pie makin' friend. Check up on ya and such. toi don't look so good. Are toi sick, did something happen?" I tried to sound clueless, kind of hard since I knew what really happened.
"I--" She stopped in mid-thought. I guess shes going to come up with a lie, so I don't freak out. I admired that she didn't want to trouble me but it was partly my job to worry. I am her friend. I smiled, almost unconciously.
"I, uhm, got sick. I went for a short walk on the path in the woods. Guess I caught something." She wasn't a very good liar. A good trait, I suppose. Should I call her out on her lie? Not too thick, Jacob. Bring it on light.
"Soo, Wheres Edward? Thought toi to would have been hangin' out." Her features changed. From a tired and thoughtful look to fear and confusion. Her brown eyes grew wide, and her brow pulled together. Her mouth also hung open. I laughed to myself. She looked like she wanted to yell at me but was thinking of what to say.
"I guess hes busy." She a dit bluntly.
That didn't make me very happy. She lied pretty good there. Back to the subject Jacob...
"Look, Bella, I know this is going to sound really weird but.. I think toi might be fibbing about this." Her expression changed to a stunned look.
"Sorry, if I sound creepy, but, This was either a dream ou reality." I took a deep breath waiting for a new expression to come over her face. But, she just sat there stunned. I continued.
"I 'dreamnt' that toi were sleeping far in the woods. I came across toi when I was going for a midnight run. toi scared the living crap out of me. I stopped to see if toi were okay, ou if it was even you. I yelled Bella, multiple times. Finally, I reconized you. toi a dit just one word to me then. `Edward`." Her soft pale features changed into a kind of contorted anger.
"I picked toi up from your paralyzed position and ran to your house. I tried to think of something to say to Charlie. Then I thought toi can just walk into your own house without any trouble, right?" I didn't wait for an answer. Instead I continued with the explanation.
"I whispered to toi very quietly `Go up to your bedroom. Don't worry everything will be alright when toi wake up, okay?` toi nodded, but it seemed involuntary. toi followed what I a dit for toi to do, and went up to your room." I was grateful I came up with something to hide my being a werewolf, and my extrodinary strength and balance.
"Th--that is... what happened.. Jake.." She a dit slowly, amazed that it actually wasn't a dream.
"I won't tell anyone about this.. But on one condition.." I a dit nervously.
"W-what is it?"
"Me and toi hang out for the entire week!" I winked hoping to lighten the mood, from disasterous amazment to happiness and laughs.
She smiled at me, then surprisingly leaned over to me and hugged me as tight as she could. Which wasn't very tight. I smiled widely to myself. I picked her up and twirled around the room. Once. I didn't want to make her dizzy. I waited for a reply. I peeled her off of me and look her in the eyes and smiled.
"So. Is it a deal?"
"Of course!" She beamed. I was so happy to see her smiling again. I wiped some of the last tears from her weak eyes, and smiled wider than her. Yeah! I chanted in my head. Finally some time with Bella.
