I ran out the front door and to my truck. Today Jacob would not get away with ignoring me again. Today is the Tag that I would get the Antwort that I have wanted for over the past week.
This time I was not shaking on the way to La Push. This time, I had something to prove. And being nervous would not help the cause. I had to prove that no girl should be treated the way that Jacob has been treating me lately.
This time I pulled up to his house swelling with confidence. I stood tall as I walked to the door, and knocked on it three times. My confidence just got knocked out of me when Jacob opened the door. I was really expecting Billy to answer the door. I did not plan to have the encounter this early. I thought I would have Mehr time to plan it out the way that I wanted the confrontation to go.
And he looked so different! I mean, I could tell that it was him, but he was huge! Like an adult. I couldn't stop staring at him for that reason.
"Um...." Jacob said, breaking the silence.
I was seriously considering turning around and running for my life at this point. But I was all ready here and I didn't want to make a fool out of myself.
I couldn't think of anything to say.
"So.. um, Du look, uh, different. Taller," is what I finally stuttered out. It was the best that I could do. Anyway he should be the one to start talking, not me.
"Yeah... Bella, we have to talk. Would Du like to come in?" Jacob finally sagte after some Mehr silence.
"Sure," I made it short so he wouldn't realize how suddenly nervous I was.
Jacob sat down on a couch in the living room, and I sat on the one opposite of him.
"Bella, I am going to make this short and simple. I think we should see other people," Jacob sagte while staring into my eyes.
I had to look away to make sense of what he just said. So he wasn't going to tell me that he is a werewolf?
"Why?" I finally said.
"Well, we are young and we should get to know other people, that's all," Jacob replied easily.
I looked at him again. He did change. Probably because of the werewolf transformation. So, he was probably trying to protect me from himself. I could change his mind. Easily. I mean, Vampire are my best Friends so why can't my boyfriend be a werewolf?
"Jacob, Alice told me about Du being a werewolf. Du don't need to protect me from yourself. I know Du won't hurt me," I said, and when I looked up he was shaking violently.
"Alice told you?" he practically growled.
"Yes," I answered.
"What did she tell Du about werewolves?" he sagte almost controlling the shaking.
"She sagte that Du can transform into a wolf form. She sagte Du may be dangerous to be around. But if Du can get your temper under control then I'm fine. She sagte something about a treaty, because Du are the Vampire natural enemy. She sagte there was Mehr but, she did not tell me anything else about you, she didn't tell me much," I replied rather quickly.
"She didn't say anything about when a werewolf impr- I mean, really that all?" Jacob said, sounding like he was hiding something.
"Yeah, that's all," I said, not caring about what he was hiding.
"Oh. Well I still think that we should see other people," Jacob said, while looking down.
"Oh, I see. I guess I should leave then," I said, wanting to get out before I completely broke down.
I got up and practically ran for the door. I heard Jacob try to say something but I didn't catch what he said. And I didn't care. I ran to my truck. Although I was running, the tears came before I made it to my truck. It was hard to drive through the tears. I was thinking about pulling over, but I really just wanted to get home, now.
Great. Charlie is home, probably for lunch, it's only about ten. I didn't have it in me to pull myself together for when I got in the house.
"Bella, what happened, are Du hurt?" Charlie asked very frantically.
"Jacob just broke up with me and I just want to be alone," I sagte before running up to my room.
I sat on my bett at I just could not stop the tears.
Ring. Ring. Ring.
My cell was ringing. Probably Alice. But I couldn't talk to her right now, I couldn't talk to anyone so I just turned my phone off. I would apologize to Alice later and she would understand.
Charlie did not bother checking on me. He was probably afraid to. For the first time I was happy that tomorrow was Monday and I would have school . Something to keep my mind off of Jacob. For today, I would probably lay in my bett and cry.
