Disclaimer: I don't own Twlight or New Moon Stephenie Meyer does. I'm just a girl with only $20 who listens to her little sister cry while she thinks up creepy things.
I realized his plan as I was hyperventilating in the parking lot. He was going to leave. He was going to give some stupid excuse and leave with all of his family and my life.
I couldn't let him do that. I couldn't make the Cullen's pack up and leave if they didn't have to. But that wasn't the only reason I had to stop him. I didn't want him to leave me. It was very selfish but I just couldn't imagine my life without him.
I knew there would be no arguing with him. Even if I begged as much as I could, he would leave anyway. I had to think of a way to keep him here, and I had to think of it fast. But first I had to go to work.
I went into the store with a notebook and a pen. Of course who would be there to greet me but Mike?
"Hey Bella. How was your birthday?"
"Ugh I'm glad it's over."
Thank god he left it at that and there weren't that many customers today. I had to start planning. I had already decided on running away. I knew from experience vampires came faster when you did that. I started by writing down my main concerns:
Charlie/ the Police
What Edward would think
Where I was going
How I was going to leave
I knew that Charlie would round up all the police if I didn't leave with the right explanation. I also felt bad about leaving him to fend for himself. But I was leaving sometime soon anyway and it would be better if he didn't get so used to me.
I couldn't decide what to put in the note. I wondered how many times I could use the 'I hate Forks' excuse. And then after much thinking and a customer it came to me.
I'm really sorry but I'm really homesick. I'm going to see Renee but I will back. Don't worry about me. I will call and everything. Try not to eat all the fish! Don't forget I will check in with you.
This note seemed horrible, but I couldn't think of anything better. I also knew this excuse wouldn't last long, but hopefully by the time Charlie and Renee caught on I would grow an imagination.
I really couldn't decide on what to write for Edward so I skipped him and went to Renee. I decided to call her tomorrow after I got on the road via pay phone.
I finally decided Edward would just have to figure it out on his own. I sounded a little cold, but after all he was going to leave me. Wasn't that cold after all we had been through? It was still hard to believe but that kiss had made it final to me.
Money was easy enough. I would just withdraw all my money from the bank on the way back. Luckily today was payday. The only thing I really had to worry about was how much I had.
I couldn't decide where to go except east. That would be easy enough. I would just have to drive east and once I found a place I liked I could just settle there.
But actually leaving would be another thing. I didn't think I had enough courage to leave. But in order for this to even slightly work I would actually have to runaway.
I laughed at the thought. I never thought I would be running away again. I never even thought I'd be running away the first time.
"What's so funny?" said Mike as he walked over.
"Oh nothing, just thinking of this dreamed I had. Way too embarrassing to tell you."
"Well I'm closing up for the night. See you tomorrow."
Crap, the one thing I hadn't counted on, school. Oh well screw school. If this worked right I would have an eternity to graduate. I was almost scared at how rebellious I was being. But then I realized that it was due sometime. Even the great Edward Cullen had a rebellious stage. Luckily, for me mine didn't include killing humans.
I put away my vest and put on my coat. I took a deep breath as I put my keys in the ignition. This was it. It was time to take action.
A/N So how did you like it? Oh well, if you didn't it's just an idea. But if you did I'll keep going. Oh yeah, review so I can tell you about my banana dream.
