Chapter 3- Home
It was finally time for Bella to be released. I was a little sad at the thought of her leaving. She had been here for 3 weeks, and since Angela had a husband and two young children at home, I had spent the majority of that time with her. We had spent a lot of time just talking. I had found out that Bella was really smart. We talked about music; we both preferred the classics, art, books; the list went on and on. I walked to Bella's room to tell her the good news. She was sitting up in bed watching TV.
"Well Bella I have good news for you."
"Oh and what would that be Edward." After the first week I told her to just call me Edward.
"You get to go home." I thought that this would make her happy, but instead she just looked down. "You want to go home don't you?"
"Well it's just that I have no place to go." She had not told me this before.
"What do you mean?" I walked over to the chair beside her bed and sat down.
"Well I was living with my parents in a small town. One night, someone broke in and tried to rob us. My father tried to fend them off, but he was killed and then the burglar went after my mom. Not only did I lose both of them and barely made it out alive myself, but I was watching when they were shot. That's how I got all those injuries. He came after me next, but I guess he had not been expecting me. I was home from college on break, and he only had two bullets. Since he could not shoot me, he beat me." This was new. She had never told me how she had received those injuries prior to her accident. I can see why she did not want to talk about it. "So you see I have no family left and no place to go."
"Where were you heading when you were in the accident?"
"I went to my dorm room to get me things; I'm not really sure what I was going to do."
This was a snag. I could not send her out into the world without someone there to be with her. I was trying to think of a way to solve this issue when I got the best idea ever.
"Bella how would you like to come live with me?"
"I could not impose on you; you have been too nice to me as it is."
"No really I have a three bedroom apartment and it's huge so I have plenty of room. Plus, you should not be left alone while you are still recovering. You will need help moving around with the cast on your leg." I was really hoping that she would decide to talk me up on my offer.
"Well, I guess it would be ok until I figure out what else to do." Yes, yes, yes.
"It's settled then. I will go fill out your release papers."
As I walked down the hallway, I realized what I had done. I had just invited a person that I barely knew to stay at my house. And to take it farther, it was a beautiful woman that I was attracted to …oh boy Tanya was not going to like this.
