When we got to the mall, it was like every awkward moment in the car never happened. First, we went to Hot Topic. We laughed behind the employees backs because they were full grown men and were wearing unicorn backpacks.

When we got out of there, Kade saw a girl he didn't know go into Victoria's Secret. He tried to follow her, but I pulled him back.

We went into a few more stores before we decided to take a break on the bench. We were sitting there for about 2 minutes when Kade's phone rang. He talked for a few minutes, then turned to me and said, "You wanna talk to my friend?"


Kade laughed. "She says no," he said into the phone.

"Alright. Bye." He hangs up and turns to me.

"Alright, so what do you want to do now?"

I shrugged.

"Wanna go back to my house?"

"Yeah, sure," I say exhaling.

We drove back to Kade's house.

I got curious and asked him if he had a girlfriend. He said no. I asked him why. He said that he wasn't cute enough in a joking manner. I looked him over. Green eyes, short black hair and skin the color of mocha coffee because his dad was black.

"You're cute to me." I said.

He chuckled and blushed.

So as not to embarrass him anymore, I didn't say anything else. We got to his house a little while later.

When we got into his room, he divulged to me that he had an Xbox. Now, you see, if he had said that earlier, we wouldn't have been so bored. And if he had told me that he had Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas…But he didn't, so, whatever.

We played on his Xbox until I glanced at my watch and saw that it was 9 o'clock. I cursed and said, "Kade! I need to go home now! It is way past the time I was supposed to be home by!"

"Which was what?" Kade asked me taking his good old time getting up and getting his keys.


He looked at his alarm clock. "Yeah it is past that time. Come on."

We, once again, went out to his truck. It took us about 10 minutes to get there this time. I gave him a hug and shouted thanks as I got out of his truck.

I ran inside the house. "Bella." I heard Charlie say.

"Yeah?" He was sitting on the couch in the living room with the TV turned off.

"You were supposed to be home by 6."

"Yes I know. But Kade had this awesome Grand Theft Auto game and I just had to play it! It was addictive."

"I don't want to hear about the game Bella. But next time, you had better be back by 6 or I will make your curfew 4:30."


"Oh, and Bella?" He said as I turned to go up the stairs.


"I don't think we spend enough time together. We need to have a talk later."

I stared at him in horror. Then I quickly rearranged my face and said. "Okay, dad."

I turned and ran upstairs.

When I got up to our room, Jasper was sitting on his bed and Emmett was sitting on mine. They were talking about something I couldn't care less about. I laid down on my bed behind Emmett.

"Hey, Bella. Where have you been?" Emmett asked me.

"With Kade."

"Your curfew was at 6:00. Why did you come home 3 hours late?"

"We were playing on his Xbox."

"Then why's your hair all messed up?"

"My hair is always messed up." I say.

"It's true. Her hair is always messed up." Jasper muttered to Emmett.

"You losers!" I gasped. "Get out!" I kicked Emmett off my bed and he landed with a loud thump on the floor.

He smiled and left. Jasper chuckled and went to sleep while I lay awake wondering why my brothers were such idiots.

Hey guys! This chapter was kind of rushed because I'm about to go somewhere.

Okay, so, I need someone to talk to. It's because of these boys at my school and I need to tell somebody that isn't in my family. So if you want to listen to me…well read what happens to me at school with these boys, just PM me. Please. Thanks.
