Chapter 4


After Jake left I got into my car and left to go home. Right now a warm shower sounded really good. I still had no clue why Edward stormed out of there like that. Did he get in a fight with one of his friends? Did he not feel well? All these thoughts started to consume me. Why was I thinking of him so much? I mentally slapped myself. I shouldn't be thinking of him! I hate him! I guess its his problems to deal with, anyways. I didn't even relies I was on my street until I started to pull into my driveway. Wow how did I get here so fast?

I got out of the car and started walking to the front porch steps. I went under the Welcome mat to get the key that me and Charlie kept there if we ever needed to get in when no one was home. I guess you can tell I use it a lot since my dad doesn't come home until 7:30 at night so he's never home when I got home. I unlocked the front door and walked inside the house before placing the key under the mat again for when Charlie got home. We don't see the use of carrying keys around with us if we can just use the one under the mat.

I'm guessing your wondering where my mom is right? Well my mom, Renee, left a couple years ago because its way to rainy and gloomy for her here. I lived with my mom in Phoenix for a little while but it was always to sunny there, so now she just lives with her boyfriend there named Phil Dwyer. I think he's a pretty decent guy.

I walked slowly up the stairs to get to my room. I felt so dirty and smelly after the two hour soccer practice we had. Its so much more work than normal when your soccer captain. I have to give Edward props, he did really good when he was captain. When I got to the bathroom I tuned on some warm water for the shower I was about to take and took off my clothes.

The warm water felt so good right now, I just let it relax all of my muscles. I love taking showers. I know some people hate taking them but I think it just give you a great opportunity to think things over.

When I got out of the shower I wrapped a towel around me and went into my room to get some pajamas to wear. I grabbed the first thing I saw which was a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. Once I got changed I threw my hair up into a pony tail and went downstairs to cook some dinner for Charlie when he got home since it was 6:30 already. I didn't know how bad I was felling right now until I started cooking. My head was pounding, my eyes hurt, and I had a runny nose. I didn't do anything about it though. Its probably just allergies like I get every year… When I finished making Charlie his dinner he just walked in. Perfect timing or What?

"Hey, Bells this smells amazing like always," He says this everyday but that's okay it doesn't bother me,

"Thanks dad, but I don't think I'll be eating right now I'm really tired," I said while yawning, "Good night."

"Night Bells, thanks for the dinner!" He yelled while I was walking up the stairs, "Your welcome!" I yelled back. I walked into my room and got under the covers on my bed. Once my head hit the pillow I was out cold. I didn't even have time to think about anything at all.


When I woke up I felt worse than when I fell asleep! Is that possible? I guess so. Maybe its just a cold I'm getting. I got up and went to open my blinds. When I opened them I felt like I was being blinded! The sun finally felt like being nice to Forks for one day! To bad it was like that when I was feeling all crummy.

I walked over to my closet and chose a pair of skinny jeans and a tank top. I really just wanted a pair of sweat pants and a T-shirt, but just because I felt terrible doesn't mean I have to look like it too. I walked into the bathroom to change. When I got in there I found I had dark circles under my eyes. I looked terrible, to add onto the dark circles my hair was a mess and I just looked lifeless.

I decided, when I was finished changing, to go downstairs to get an aspirin. I just left after that. I was totally not in the mood to have breakfast. I sat in my car a little bit just listening to music before I had to go to school. It was a fast drive to get to school, even with me driving, since Forks is such a small town you can drive from one side to the other in five minutes. When I finally pulled into the parking lot I noticed I was kind of late. How long had I been listening to music? I was normally the first one to school.

I got out of the car as quickly as I could, grabbed my bag and locked the car. My first class that I had to go to was English, which was okay since I loved the subject and the teacher teaching it was great, so I know I wouldn't get in any trouble.

I walked into the room and everyone turned to look at the person who was late. I cleared my throat while blushing. I hated being the center of attention, unless it was soccer we were talking about, "Uh, sorry I'm late," I said in a raspy voice. My throat way one of the things that was bothering me.

"That's fine its just nice of you to join us Miss. Swan," Mr. Baker said. I slowly walked over to my seat in the back of the room. I felt relived when I got back there. I felt all the eyes turn away from me back to the front of the room. My cheeks started to turn back to their normal color. The only person in the back of the room with me is a girl named Angela. She's a really sweet girl. I saw a paper hit the top of my desk. I looked sideways at Angela before opening the paper.

Are you okay ?

~ Angela

That's what the note said. I sighed before writing back my short response

I'm fine


I quickly looked up to the front of the room to see Mr. Bakers back turned to us and quickly threw the note back to her. She didn't send anything back all class. English went by really fast for which I was grateful for. The quicker school ended the quicker I could go home and sleep. I saw Alice coming down the hall and prepared myself for all the questions she was going to ask.

"Bella! How come you were late? And why do you look like you just got out of bed?" she asked quickly. Almost to quickly didn't hear what she said. I really didn't want to talk to anyone right now I had a major headache, but I knew I couldn't be rude to Alice she was my best friend.

"I got up late," I said quietly in my raspy voice that I have had all day. I know I still didn't answer one of her questions, but I really didn't feel like answering her question. What was I going to say? I feel like hell right now? I don't want to look like a total idiot.

"Yeah I kind of figured that, but why do you look so horrible?" Gosh her questions never stopped! My head was pounding with all the questions she was asking and the lies I had to come up with to answer those certain questions.

"I just didn't sleep at all lat night that's all," I lied. But just being me I couldn't tell one lie and she saw right through it.

"Bella you're a terrible liar I know your sick so why aren't you at home? You could get even more sick by being here," Alice said to me with sympathy in her eyes.

"I'm fine Alice its just a cold I'm getting. No big deal," I said, "Anyway I got to go to algebra,"

"Fine," Alice huffed while walking away. I started walking to algebra which was my least favorite subject of all since I have to sit next to Edward in that class. I walked in right when the bell rung signaling for classes to start. I saw Edward sitting at our table just staring out the window. I walked over and quietly took my seat next to him. He didn't even know I was there until my throat started to tickle and I coughed. Edward turned to look at me shocked since he didn't even know I was sitting in my seat yet.

"Hey Bella," he said politely. I think my hearing was going a little bit to while I was sick. Was Edward Cullen being nice? To me? Bella Swan?

"Hey?" I said it more as a question than a reply. Why was he being nice all of a sudden? I think I'm going crazy!

"Listen, Bella, I'm sor-," He got cut off when the teacher started the lesson. I could feel Edward watching me most of the lesson. Gosh he has some serious mood swings. First, he hates my guts then he's staring at me like I'm some science experiment he just finished making.

It was halfway through the lesson when my stomach turned painfully. I jumped up from my seat causing everyone to turn and look at me, even the teacher was looking at me, "Miss. Swan sit do-," then he saw were I was headed and didn't say anything else to me. I ran over to the trash can and started pucking my guts up. I didn't care that everyone was staring at me right now. I felt terrible!

"Why don't you go down to the nurses office Miss. Swan?" Mr. Green said. Well obviously I would go to the nurses office! I just nodded my head and headed over to the nurses office. I can't believe I just threw up in class! I feel so embarrassed now!

I got into the office told the nurse what happened and then she set me down on one of the very stiff beds that they have in there. I don't know how long I was laying there before the nurse came back into the room.

"Well Bella, you can wait till the end of school for someone to drive you home, or I can call your dad to-" I cut her off right there.

"I can drive myself home," I said quickly. I'm not going through the embarrassment of someone driving me home, or I also don't want my dad to come and get me.

"You shouldn't drive when tour sick Bella," the nurse said.

"Really I'm fine I can drive my self home its no big deal," I really just wanted to get out of here but she felt like being stubborn.

"If you think your able to drive right now I guess you may go," yes I thought to myself I won the battle. I got off from the bed and started heading out to my car. When I got in I started the heat. I was freezing! It was another quick ride home. Just not a fun one.

Once inside my house I dropped my stuff by the door and walked over to the couch so I could fall on it. I was asleep in a matter of seconds. I had a dreamless sleep when I was awaken by a knock on the door. Don't people get I'm sick in here? I really don't feel like getting up at all. The knocking just kept coming. I sighed and walked over to the front door and yanked it open. What I saw made me freeze. Edward Cullen was standing right in front of me!

Again sorry guys for the long wait! But hope you enjoyed it!
