Emmett's Life

The Comedy

Chapter 4-Secrets

"Victoria, don't hurt Charlie." Edward says. He's careful not to say anything about vampires. Charlie has no clue. She cackles.

"Where is the girl?" She hisses.

"Away from you." I yell.

"Why? Is there something this human doesn't know? Does the daughter know more about this clan, yet the father has know them longest? Have you told only the daughter your secrets? What about the---"

" Stop." I interrupt her rampage. "What is the point of killing Bella again?" Charlie gasps through the gag.

"She should die, like James did! He," She points at Edward, "He should suffer a life-long pain for a lost love like I will."

"I was going to!" Edward hisses "Thanks to James! There was no reason to try and kill Bella, But that's what he almost did! If it wasn't for my family and I, she would be dead! All of her family!"

"Please, can't we be civil?" Carlisle pleads.

"NO!" We yell. I walk closer to Victoria, she walks back.

"Keep away!" She hisses. Rosalie unties Charlie, helps him up, and walks towards the car. Victoria makes a leap to stop them, but Edward and I stop her. While Edward rips her into pieces, I pull out a match from my pocket, and light it. He lays the pieces on the ground, and I put the lit match in the middle of the fire. Within seconds, she is in flames, and we walk towards the car causally.

"What did you mean when you said Bella almost died?!" Charlie asked as we opened the door.

"Charlie, please. Not to offend you at all, but Bella is a danger magnet." Edward starts.

"Yes, we all know that! But what happened? I need to know what happens to my daughter! I forbid you to come within a mile of her unless I know!!!!" Charlie yells.

"Charlie?" Esme asks. "My husband and I will be happy to tell you all about it, after we are sure you are going to be in no need of medical assistance."

"WHAT?" He asks, sounding confused. "All I want is to see my daughter, and if you try to stop me I will have to arrest you."

" Charlie, we would never even try to separate you from Bella. All they want to do is make sure you're not hurt." Rosalie explains.

"Where is she?" He asks.

"With Alice and Jasper at our house."

"Why didn't she come?"

"Because Victoria wanted to kill her." I put in.

" WANTED?" Charlie is alarmed now.

"She is gone now."

"YOU KILLED HER?!?!?" Is he going to have a heart attack?

"No,"

"Then how--?"

"DAD!!" Bella yells, running to the car. We jump out, and Bella runs over to Charlie.

"Bells, are you okay?" Charlie asks, hugging her.

"Me??? Yeah, are you?"

"I am going to be fine. What did they mean you almost died?"

"EDWARD!!" Bella whines, glaring at him. He shrugs.

"Victoria said it."

"Dad, are you sure you're okay????"

"ISABELLA!"

"What?"

"I demand you tell me about EVERY time you almost died."

"I can't."

"WHY NOT?" He demands.

"Edward, can I talk to you for a minute?"

"NO, not until you tell me." Charlie answers for him. Bella pulls away from Charlie, and walks towards me and Ed. Charlie sighs.

"Fine dad, I will tell you. Every second of my life I am in danger of dying. Look at me!! I was born that way! When was the last time I didn't break a bone? Or fall? How about when I almost died by the semi? Ooh, ooh, remember when I was electrocuted? Then the next day I was struck by lightening. Good times. Very Normal. For me."

"Bella, I want to know." Charlie says.

"Well, I don't want you to."

"Why not?"

"Because."

"Because?" Charlie repeats. "What? Is there something I haven't been told? That is dangerous? Or that is hideous? You know, Esme, I think I will take you and Carlisle up on the offer to explain to me, since my daughter won't."

"Certainly." Carlisle says, and leads everyone in, but Ed, Rose, Bella and I stay outside.

"Is he going to tell him?" She asks.

"I doubt it. He is most likely to make up an excuse." Edward assures her.

"I have to get out of here." She says, waving us of. She walks over to her red truck, and Edward stops her.

"Where are you going?"

"Jacob's." She responds, getting in. Edward laughs, and pulls her out.

"Says who?"

"Me. If you want Charlie of my back, I have to make up with Jacob. It's the only way."

"You do know that if you go back, they'll try to hold you 'hostage', or offer you and your dad to stay, which is what your dad is hoping for, before we can do any thing."

"So, what does it matter?"

"What does it matter? It matters that your father is hoping you will go down, make up with Jacob, and be offered to stay with them. And the fact that he knows we aren't allowed anywhere near the reservation."

"I'm a big girl."

"Bella, if we are going to get married, I don't want you going places that are dangerous, and where I can't be with you." Edward whispers. Rosalie and I gasp.

"OH MY GOD!" Rosalie squeals. She pulls out her phone, and sends a text message to Alice and Jasper. In 2 seconds, Alice's scream is heard. Bella slaps Edward.

"I HATE YOU NOW."

"Ooh, I'm scared, now. What are you going to do?"

"Tell my father to go to the reservation with me." She responds quickly. She runs to her car, and jumps in. She pulls out her phone and dials his number. Edward quickly runs over, and shuts the phone. He pulls her out of the car, and sets her down on side of the truck.

"Let go." She warns.

"Will you drop this ridiculous idea of going to see Jacob?" He asks, warning her to do as he says.

"No, but I will cancel the wedding, and scream for my father. And then I will absolutely never ever talk to you again. How's that?"

"Not fair."

"How so?"
