Chapter 7I looked over to Edward and in my head thought,
care to explain
or shall I?
He looked at my expression, chuckled and then turned his head to the rest of the family. Inoticed the Denalis were present. They probably snuck in when I was looking over atEdward, who chuckled, but not at me.“They are getting impatient. I’ll explain, since you are so disgruntled by thethought.” He explained noticing my confused look. He turned his body and said straightup, ”I can now read Bella’s mind.” He smiled as I looked around. I didn’t need to be amind reader to tell what they are thinking.
Edward pulled me in tighter to his chest and laid his head on top of mine. I sunk into him, waiting for them to explode.
One,” he whispered. I chuckled then caught myself.
Remember it’s not funny.
Ilooked over at Edward who was about to laugh.
I repeat, NOT funny.
“What?!”“When?!?”“HOW??”I jumped on Edwards lap. I had forgotten that we were waiting for an answer. Ilooked over at everyone else, they all held looks of amazement.

One day… I stayed overnight then…soCharlie doesn’t where I am.“Oh no,” I whispered quietly, even though they all heard me. Edward turned mearound on his lap and gave me worried look.“You didn’t tell him you were coming did you?” He asked me, that questionreminded me of when we were on the way to his meadow the first time. I snapped out of it quickly.“Our meadow and I’m going to take that as a no.” He rubbed my back and Igroaned. This was not going to turn out well.“OK, what in the world are both of ya’ll talking about, or thinking?!” Emmettyelled, making me jump again. Before I could answer Alice spoke.“They are talking about Charlie. Bella didn’t tell him that she was making a little‘side trip’ instead of going to some friend’s house. Oh and Bella I already called andtalked to Charlie about it. I said I ran into you and invited you over and you accidentlyfell asleep.” She smiled at my expression, mouth open and gaping at her. She giggled and
