A/N This is still the same story with the same story line. I have taken it down to fix my mistakes and to add to the plot a little.

Thank you all for the patience.



I hated the wet weather.

I wasn't trying to be melodramatic, but my truck was ancient and without the windshield wipers, it was impossible to drive in the pouring rain. I wrenched the door open and threw my bag on the bench seat as I climbed in. A dull, throbbing ache was beginning to build behind my eyes. I shook my head in frustration as I reached for my phone to call my dad, Charlie. I was hoping that he would be able to take me home instead.

The line was picked up on the first ring. "Hello? Who is this?"

"Dad, it's me. Can you come and pick me up? It's raining and I don't think I would be able to make it home in the truck until the rain stops so…" I continued to ramble, waiting for him to speak.

As I waited for him to answer, a feeling of dread washed over me. Something wasn't right.

"Dad, are you okay?"

The silence stretched on, and I was torn between fear and frustration.

"Isabella, this is Dr. Cullen, Alice's father." a calm voice reached my ear.

Alice Cullen was my best friend since tenth grade. Her father, Carlisle, was the leading trauma surgeon in the local hospital and was a friend of my father's. His easy friendship with Carlisle allowed me to become friends with Alice as when he had to work long night shifts, she would stay at our place for a night. Her brother, Edward, however, was the complete opposite of her. All I would get from him all day was long, dark stares which bored into the deepest pit of my eyes whenever I was over at Alice's house. We had almost never spoken.

I loved Emmett, Rose, Alice, and Jasper. I had no problems joining in their conversation as long as Edward was out of earshot.

"Where is my dad?" I demanded, not sparing a moment to think about my manners. It wasn't as important as my father. "Why are you answering his phone?"

Like before, I was greeted with the dreadful silence. I couldn't help but be grateful for it this time; I was almost positive I didn't want to hear his answer.

"Bella, I'm sorry. There was an accident on Mains Road, just off the highway. A car lost control and collided with your father while he was on duty. Bella…he…." His words began to fade as the dull roar of rushing blood flooded my hearing.

As Dr. Cullen continued to speak, I struggled to pay attention. "He's lost a lot of blood, Bella. We are doing all we can, but you need to get here as quickly as possible. I have already spoken with Alice; she should be on her way to find you as we speak." And with that, he hung up.

Thanks a million to my beta mojopen for helping me fixing the story up.
