"I'm sorry about that" I apologised "I just woke up and wasn't expecting anyone. Speaking of, shouldn't you be in school?". His face twisted in pain.

"I'm not going in today; I'm going to Alaska soon, visiting family"

"Oh. How long will you be gone for?"

"I don't know, not long I hope" He sounded really upset, I wondered why.

"When do you leave?"


I got up from the chair that I was sitting on, and made my way towards the kitchen, followed by Edward.

I fixed up a bowl of Coco Pops and sat at the table, where Edward took a seat opposite. He looked oddly out of place. I realised that Edward might want something to eat, he was really thin!

"Are you hungry?" I asked, he laughed as if there was some hidden meaning.

"No thanks."

"What time is it?"


"WHAT?" It couldn't be, I couldn't have slept that long!

"Your sisters will be home soon, I should leave"

My head shot up, I didn't want him to leave, he was going to Alaska tonight, I didn't know when I would see him again.

"Please stay a little longer?" he shook his head politely.

I have to go, he stood up and walked out of the kitchen, I followed.

"Why did you come?" I asked.

"To see if you were ill, obviously not" he walked out the door and climbed into the silver Volvo.
