A/N: Hey everyone. This is my Christmas present to all of you guys who read my stories. This is a one-shot that I wanted to make a long time ago because I thought it would have been funny to have this happen in the story. A lot of the sayings are the same and everyone knows that I don't own Twilight because I would be in California livin' a good life instead of this boring town. Anyway, here is Bella's Truck!
"I should have let you drive yourself today," Edward said.
I frowned. "Why?" I demanded.
"I'm leaving with Alice after lunch," he said.
"Oh," I blinked, both bewildered and disappointed. "That's okay, it's not that far of a walk."
He frowned at me, clearly a disapproving look though I didn't know what he was disapproving.
"I'm not going to make you walk home. we'll go get your truck and leave it here for you."
"I don't have my keys with me," I sighed sadly. "I really don't mind waling home." No, what I really minded was losing my time with him.
He shook his head. "Your truck will be here, and the key will be in the ignition– unless you're afraid someone might steal it." He laughed, clearly amused by the thought.
"Alright," I agreed, pursing my lips. I was pretty sure my key was in the pocket of the jeans I wore on Wednesday in the laundry room. I couldn't see him finding the key even if he broke into my house/ Edward smirked at me, overconfident.
We continued our conversation for the rest of the lunch period. Though at the end of it, his sister came up to us. She seemed nice enough, a little weird but nice enough.
When Edward left with his sister to go hunting, I left to go to my biology class. I was sure I wouldn't be able to stand biology when Edward wasn't in it with me.
It turned out I was right. The class seemed to drag on throughout the hour. I never fell asleep in a class before, but I was really close to at that point.
When the bell finally rang, I ran for the door. I had one more class that I was scared to death of… and that might happen. Death. Gym. Why was that even a class?
Luckily, Mike wasn't too sour with me anymore and he offered to be my partner today. I quickly agreed knowing that no one else would offer that to me.
I quickly changed as the bell rang and went to find my car. I looked around the whole parking lot but I couldn't spot it anywhere. I couldn't even see it when I was one of the few left at school. I knew he wouldn't be able to find the key.
I quickly put both arms through my backpack straps and marched. I was fine walking home in the cold, but I wasn't fine walking in the rain when it's forty degrees and walking against the wind was like pulling against gravity. Hard but possible.
I was glad to see my house an hour later. But what I saw shocked me. My truck was no where to be seen!
"DAMN!" I growled and shouted. I usually don't use that language, but that was the only word I could think of at the moment. Someone stole my truck! Edward was going to pay for losing my baby. Maybe I could use my dad's baseball bat on his car or spray paint it green…
"Achoo!" I sneezed. I realized then that I was shivering badly. I quickly ran up the steps and into my house. "Achoo!"
I ran up to my room and changed. I put a blanket around my shoulders and walked down the stairs. There was no way I could make dinner while I was like this. I laid down on the couch until I heard my dad's cruiser pull up.
I got up to get the door, still sneezing and coughing, and opened it for my dad. He shot me a worried work.
I had to walk home in the downpour," I explained. "Someone stole my truck so I had no way to get home except the good old fashioned way."
He quickly pulled me into his cruiser and drove. "Dad? Where are we –cough– going?"
He gave me a stern look. "To the hospital. I think you might be getting pneumonia.
It turned out that he was right. They caught it fast so I should be able to get over it pretty fast. Dr. Cullen was the one who checked me.
"Dr. Cullen," I called out to him as he was about to leave.
He turned around to face me with a kind smile. "Yes?"
"Can you call Edward and tell him that I can't make it now?"
He nodded and agreed to call him as soon as he got to his office.
I was free to leave as long as I promised to stay warm. I quickly agreed, eager to leave that retched place. I was soon on my way home. That night wasn't the best night to be me. Charlie made me stay in bed the whole time with four covers on and the heaters turned up. He also made dinner for me, chicken noodle soup, and made me eat it in bed. He told me to go to sleep right away.
I was just about to fall asleep when I felt cool, familiar hands on my face. I opened my eyes to meet the eyes of a worried Edward.
"Bella, are you okay?" he asked me. "Carlisle called me and explained everything so I can back. Though I have no clue how you got pneumonia. Would you care to explain?"
I turned my back to him and kept silent. "Bella?" he asked, slightly hurt.
"Thanks," I said coldly. "I really appreciate you losing my truck."
"What?" he asked shocked. "I left it in the same spot my Volvo was in."
"I guess someone thought my truck was a fine truck and they decided to take it. I had to walk home in the cold, pouring rain," I explained angrily.
"Bella, I am so sorry. Here, I can get you another car. Maybe something quieter like an Audi…"
"Edward. I don't want a fancy car. I am going to ask my father to put a bolo out on my truck tomorrow. I loved my truck like you apparently love your Volvo." I started to turn my back on him again but he stopped me.
"I promise I will find your truck. I'm sorry. I will do everything I can to make you happy again."
And so he sealed his promise with our first kiss.
A/N: So… how was it? I hope you all have a great Christmas. I thought that I would let all of you know that I am not going to be updating for a few weeks after the 3rd because I have some important exams to take and I have to do great on them. Have a great day everyone. ~JerinAnn
