It hasn't been a month

It hasn't been a month! You can't shoot me cuz it hasn't been 4 weeks! Okay, okay, I'm updating!

And for everyone who thinks Edward and Bella are OOC, that's cuz I want them to be. So stop PMing me and telling me they're acting weird.

Chapter 6: Unstrapping


Monday was the last day with the bellies and I don't think I could have been happier. I could finally get back to weighing my normal 100 pounds and not feeling like I took up more space than three monster trucks.

Edward had gone home to change for school, leaving me to deal with showering. I knew he wouldn't have helped me with that anyway, but maybe he could have gotten it off.

Unfortunately, since he wasn't here I had to resort to asking Charlie. "Hey, Dad!"

"What, Bella? I gotta go in a sec."

"I need your help."

"Alright, just wait a minute." I heard him lumbering up the steps and planned on how I could ask him. "So what do you need?"

"Can you unstrap this thing from me?" So much for planning.

Charlie's normally pale face went tomato red but he came forward to help me. "So what do I do?"

"Just unbuckle the strap on the back. I can get it from there."

I may have given very easy instructions, but Charlie sure didn't find it simple.

"Uh, here?"

"Yes, dad."

"Okay." He managed to set me free, but he definitely looked scarred for life. Jeez, he hadn't even seen anything, what's with the heart attack?

"Thanks." I decided to be nice. The other night when I told him about being pregnant hadn't turned out so well and I didn't think being sarcastic would help anything.

He left and I was able to shower and get ready without any other problems. Putting the belly on was much easier than getting it off so I managed to do that without his help.

At seven I heard Edward's car pull into the driveway and went out to meet him. He had already taken off the belly, even though Ms Cook had told all of us to keep them on until third period.

"There is no way I'm wearing that another second, and Rosalie agrees with me."

"Whatever, not my problem."

He just smiled at me and started the car. "I'm just glad Mike can't flaunt the fact that you have his 'child' inside of you."

"So am I, you have no idea how annoying he is!"

"Actually I do, and I don't have the luxury of getting away from his voice by just leaving the room." He tapped his head for emphasis.

"Yeah, I guess you got the short end of the stick on that one." We pulled into the school and I could see Mike waiting for me at the entrance. "Well, maybe I have to hang out with him a little longer."

"Hey, cheer up, it's not like you're going to hell or anything!"

"Oh shut it, preggo boy!"

I slammed the door and went to endure one more day with Mike.

Ten days and counting.

Yeah, it's short. Suck it up and review!
