Adele gripped her sister's hand as they stood at the end of the driveway staring out over the desert, in her right hand was a pink tulip.
"Bella, Addie!" Phil, their mom's husband called, "You know i love you both, but we've got a plan to catch."
"Let's go," Adele whispered.
Bella nodded and picked up the ceramic pot which held a cactus plant; together they headed towards their mom.
"I'm going to miss you guys!" Rene exclaimed, hugging them one by one, "Especially our shopping trips Addie."
"Me too mom, but it's not like we're not going to visit," She replied.
Rene sniffled, nodded and hugged them again.
"Be good for Charlie, you hear?"
"Don't worry mom, we'll be fine," Bella stated.
"Yeah, I'll protect them," Adele crossed her arms over her chest and acted tough, "No one will mess with them If i have anything to do with it."
"Addie, It's the thought that counts," Bella started, "But you're just as clumsy as i am."
"That's not true!" She protested, "I refuse to admit that i'm as clumsy as you."
"It's true though," Phil laughed.
Adele turned and glowered in his direction.
"We're not friends anymore!" She sniffed dramatically.
"Oh the horror!" He clutched his chest, "I can feel my heart breaking."
"That's enough, kids!" Rene laughed, "We really do need to catch our plane."
"Come here Adele," Phil held his arms out; she walked forwards and hugged him.
"I'm gonna miss you Philip," She declared.
"I'll miss you too," He replied, "Oh, and by the way, stop calling me Philip!"
"Sorry Philip," She smirked and walked over to her sister, who had been watching them In amusement.
"That girl," He shook his head, "Is crazy."
"I heard that!"
"You were meant to!" He called back.
Adele let out a sigh as she followed her sister down the steps of the plane, she let out a shriek as she missed the last step; Bella held out a hand and pulled her sister to her feet.
"Are you okay?" Bella giggled.
"I'm fine, I deliberately missed the step," She replied.
"Sure you did Addie," Bella began to walk towards the terminal.
"I did, I had it all planned out in my head!" She raced after Bella.
Adele grabbed her suitcases and waited for her sister; they had just turned when they spotted their father.
"Bella!" Charlie called, "Addie!"
Adele ran over to him and threw her arms around his neck.
"I missed you dad."
"Missed you too," He replied, "Hey Bells."
"Hey Ch-Dad," She smiled.
"Let's go, shall we?" He led the way out of the airport and towards a police cruiser.
The ride from the airport was silent and uncomfortable; Charlie glanced at Bella through his mirror.
"Your hairs longer Bella,"
"Oh, I cut it since the last time i saw you," She replied.
"Guess it grew out again," He cleared his throat.
Adele giggled quietly, Charlie noticed and turned to her.
"Your hair is straight for once."
"Yeah, I finally got it to cooperate," She ran a hand through her hair.
"Well, It looks nice."
He nodded and turned his attention back to the road.
"This is your room Addie," Charlie stated, setting her suitcases on the ground.
Adele smiled as she looked around her room; It was a simple room with sky blue walls, a wardrobe pushed against the far wall, a reasonable sized bed, a bed side table and a dresser, A blue quilt lay neatly on the bed with a white blanket on it, her room was situated at the back of the house, over looking the woods.
"I love it Dad, It's like my old room,"
"Yeah, well, I thought t would be easier if it was familiar to you," He scratched his head awkwardly.
She reached over and gave him a one armed hug; he sighed and returned it.
"I'll leave you to it." Charlie turned and headed out of the room, he closed the door behind him.
Adele glanced around her room before grabbing her suitcases and putting her clothes and shoes in the wardrobe.
Once she had finished, she headed down the stairs and into the kitchen.
"Addie!" Bella called.
She took a gulp of water and met her sister in the hallway.
"What is it?"
"Billy Black and his son Jacob is here."
She set her glass in the sink before running out the front door and throwing her arms around Jacob's neck; he blushed and hugged her back.
"It's good to see you too, Addie," He grinned.
"I can't believe you're here!" She exclaimed before pulling back, "You're towering over me now!"
"It's not my fault you're a midget."
"Hey! I resent that!"
"It's nice to see you two again," Billy smiled, "I'm glad you're here, your dad hasn't shut up since you told him you were coming."
"All right, just keep exaggerating, I'll wheel you down the hill," Charlie threatened.
"Right after i ram you in the ankles," Billy rolled towards Charlie, who laughed and dodged him.
"Are they always like this?" Adele asked.
"It's getting worse with old age," Jacob replied.
"Bella, how do you like your home coming present?" Charlie gestured towards a rusty red truck sitting in the driveway.
"This?" Her eyes widened, "This is my present?"
"Just bought it off Billy here," He replied.
"No way!" She gasped.
"I totally rebuilt the engine," Jacob bragged.
Bella smiled and opened the door, only to hit Jacob; she immediately began apologizing.
"All you gotta do is double pump the clutch when you shift, but apart from that you should be good." He explained.
Adele rested her body against the side of the truck and glanced at Jacob.
"Jake, do you want a ride to school tomorrow?"
"Um, actually, i go to a school on the reservation."
"That sucks, it would've been nice to know one person," Bella stated.
"Yeah, it would, but we can still hang out at the weekend."
"That would be nice," He grinned.
"I'll come down in the afternoon on Saturday," She started, "If that's okay?"
Jacob nodded enthusiastically, much to Bella's amusement.
"That would be great, but how do you expect to get there?"
"I'll borrow the truck, If that's okay Bella?"
"Sure, that's fine."
"Great, then we'll see you on Saturday," She grinned
"We?" He sounded a little confused.
"Of course, me and-" She was interrupted by Bella who pinched her arm.
"Don't worry about me, Addie can drop me off before she goes to see you."
Jacob's mood immediately brightened and he swept them into a hug.
"I'll see you on Saturday Addie."
They nodded and Adele hugged him one more time before he headed off and helped his dad in the car.
"I'm going to go up to bed now," Adele yawned.
"I'm going to turn in too," Bella replied.
"Goodnight girls, I'll see you in the morning."
"Night dad," They said in unison before heading up the stairs.
"Hey Bella, we'll be okay here," She stated, "I promise."
"I know, i'll miss mom though," Bella sighed and headed into her room.
Adele hesitated before going into her room, she changed into her night wear before climbing into bed and turning the lamp off.
"Maybe this move won't be so bad," She thought as she drifted to sleep.
Hey, this is my first story on , and I would really appreciate some feedback. I was thinking about having her fall in love with Jasper, but Jacob has feelings for her.
If you don't think this is a good idea, please tell me!
