Chapter 1 - BPOV

Everyday after school, I watch Claire and Embry for the neighbors.

I need the money, and I figure I could do worse than babysitting, plus I like being independent.

I don't want to have to rely on Charlie for spending money.

It is a rare sunny day here in Forks, so I decide to take the kids to Scoops for ice cream.

Mike has practice late, so I won't be seeing him tonight. Truth be told, I'm glad I don't have to deal with him. Maybe now I will actually have a good night.

I put the kids in my truck and drive us to the ice cream shop.

As I park, I check my face in the mirror just in case he's here today.

It's sad really, he probably doesn't even know I exist.

As I make my way inside with the kids trailing after me, my eyes immediately flick to the counter. That's when I see him.

He's tall with a mass of unruly bronze hair and the greenest eyes I've ever seen.

His lips are perfect and kissable; and when he smiles I swear it could melt the coldest of hearts.

I smile when we step up to the counter, it's my usual order, "We'll each have one chocolate scoop please."

"Oh, with sprinkles, please," Claire adds, beaming.

"With sprinkles," I echo, reaching out to ruffle her hair.

"Sure thing," he says with a wink.

I melt.
