"Bella honey? Can you come help me with these things?" My mother asked me.

I looked up at my mother, who was holding three boxes full of decorations, that she wants to hang up in our dinner. It is called 'Renee's Dinner' my mom wanted it to be Bella's Dinner, but I knew that no one would come if that was the name, so I convinced her that Renee's Dinner sounded better.

I smiled at her, giggling a little at the scene. "Of course mom." I put my book down and went behind the counteer and helped her put away the things inside the boxes.

Mrs. Kelin was the orignial owner of the dinner, but she was going to give it to my mom once she retired. And as you can guess, she retired. My mom has been working for Mrs. Kelin for years. Well to be exact, ever since my dad and brother left us 8 years ago, when my bother and I were 9 years old. Ever since they left, my mom and I have been doing the whole, 'independent women' thing. My mom never re-married anyone. She really loved my dad, but my dad left because he thought that mom wasn't trying hard enough, and that she was holding him back since she wouldn't move to California with him. Now he is a millionaire, and famous business owner. But I am glad I live with my mom, I never would have learned to be who I am now.

We also own a music store. Itis called 'TB Music' my mom thought it was clever that she made the TB stand for The Best. But no one ever really figured that out...she was disappointed by I told her, that they new that we were the best no matter what. Music is my favoorite thing in the entire world. I even write some songs. Most of them are about my life, my mom, and how I feel.

Unfortunetly, due to the whole 'not rich' thing, no one likes me. Not even the geeks. I am basically the outcast that know one likes at all. Which sucks. But I have my mom. She is my best friend. I never really got along with anyone but her. Even my brother. I only see him once in a while when I go visit them (by force). Emmet refuses to come to Forks Washington. He said that it was too depressing for him to even enter. The jerk.

My dad was always trying to get me to move in with him, saying that he could offer me much more then my mother ever could. But I always tell him that he can never give me what mom had already given me. Time and love. Why do you think Emmet is so spoiled and rude? Because daddykins was never around. He was always busy and he never mentioned the word love once, only when I left or when he wanted to compliment something. The only time that he ever takes time off is when I am about to leave from the time that I spent there.

My dad buys me a lot of things. He bought me a guitar, a piano, a drum set, heck he bought we a studio of my own to record. It is in the basement of our music store which is right down the street from our house. I also have a piano at his house.

Emmett loves hearing me play the piano, although he will never admitt it. I always catch him hiding behind the door of the basement listening, or him sitting in the basement with his headphones in and no song playing.

I love my dad, I really do I even tell him. But he is snobbish unfortunetly. And my brother followed in his foot steps. It was depressing to know, but it was the truth.

"Thank you honey. This place is going to be great." My mom said smiling as she looked around the dinner. The same people still worked here. We didn't want that to change. We were all one big family here. We got along so well.

There was the cook, Angela. Then the waiters, Ben, Phil and Chris. THen the waitresses Jenna, Justine, and Lydia. There was a new waitress coming named Esme. She has one kid my age, and her husband is a doctor and the local hospital. She is the nicest person ever.

"No porblem mom. I agree." I looked at the place. It looked like a cafe on one side then a dinner on the other, but it balanced out making it the number one hang out place.

"Why don't you go down to the music store and give poor Lizzy a break." My mom said as she kissed my forehead.

I nodded and grabbed my jacket and pulled on my boots. I grabbed my books and put them into my bag and went to the book store that we own.

Lizzy was a 28 year old woman who is a single mom. She is so nice. SHe is like a older sister to me sometimes.

As I walked to the store, I got a text message. It was from my dad.

Hello Bella, I was wondering if you wanted to come visit me this week so that you and your brother could spend some time together before school starts. I also have a suprise for both of you. Ask your mother if you can come, I will buy the tickets when you want to come.
Love Dad.

I rolled my eyes and called my mom.

"What's wrong Bella? Are you alright?" She asked in an anxious voice.

I laughed, "Calm down mom. I am just calling to tell you dad wants me to visit him next week. He said he has a suprise for Emmett and I."

"Ugh. That man has inpecable timing." My mom mumbled. "Yeah of course you can go honey, just not to long tell him." She said in an irrated voice.

"I don't have to go mom I can-"

"No honey, you need to spend some time with your brother and your dad." She said interrupting me.

I dighed, "Alright."

We said goodbye and I hung up.

I texted my dad saying that I can come but I can't stay for to long. He booked me a ticket for this friday. Which I thought was perfect. It was the day after the opening of the dinner.

I enterd the music shop taking in the smell of the store.

I looked over at the counter and saw Lizz reading a book.

SHe looked up and smiled, "Hey kiddo. What's up?"

I smiled at her. "NOthing, mom said that you can go home, I will take it from here." I giggled as I put on my apron and hung up my jacket.

Lizz rolled her eyes, but smiled "Thanks Bella." She hung up her apron, and grabbed her jacket. "I was just about to close up. So if you want to you can." She said smiling nodding her head toward the basement door.

SHe was the only other empolyee who new what was in the basement.

"Har har, yes make fun of Bella and her secret studio." I said in a sarcastic voice.

Lizz laughed, "Alright, be safe and remember, always say no" She said with a pointed look. I laughed and nodded my head.

Then she left.

I locked the door and put the closed sign up. I ran to the basement door and unlocked it.

As I entered the basement, I saw my baby. My grand piano.

I started up the piano and started to write a song up. I never am in here unless I have free time, which is really never, so I am always inspired when I come down here.

I pulled out my note book and started to write down some lyrics. I cam up with something after 28 minutes of thinking. Then I started to writre the piano part. I was done with a new song within an hour andd a half.

My mom always said that I am an amazing writer. She thinks that I can become famous one day. I laugh at her and tell her to keep dreaming. Event though that is my number one dream in the world.

I still didn't have a name yet but I liked it. It was something that had been bothering my mind and the song made it known.

(Thousand Miles by Vanessa Carlton)

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

It's always times like these
When I think of you
And I wonder
If you ever
Think of me

'Cause everything's so wrong
And I don't belong
Living in your
Precious memories

'Cause I need you
And I miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
Tonight

And I, I
Don't want to let you know
I, I
Drown in your memory
I, I
Don't want to let this go
I, I
Don't...

Making my way downtown
Walking fast
Faces pass
And I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead
Just making my way
Making a way
Through the crowd

And I still need you
And I still miss you
And now I wonder...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass us by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you...

If I could fall
Into the sky
Do you think time
Would pass me by
'Cause you know I'd walk
A thousand miles
If I could
Just see you
If I could
Just hold you
Tonight

As I sang the song, I realized I was thinking of my brother and my dad. I would walk a thousand miles just to see them. I love my mom, but I miss my other family too.

When I looked at my piano for a little while I heard somone say.

"Knock knock." I turned and saw my mom at the top of the stairs.

I smiled. "Hi."

"Hey honey." My mom came down the stairs and kissed my forehead."So you write a new song?" She asked.

I nodded and bgan to play for her.

Once I finished the song, she hugged me and started to cry. "Oh honey, I know you miss your dad and brother." It amazes me how she knows me so well.

Suddenly she got up and said, "I have to make a phone call really quick honey."

I nodded and started to play my piano again.

Something tells me she is up to something...
