Labor and LoveBPOV "What do I tell him? I'm not good at this…" Iwhined over the phone to my best friendRosalie. From the moment I met Rose incollege, I've been in awe of her knack to break up with a crush and move on to the next campuscutie in a matter of moments. "Bella." I could hear Rose's finger waggingacross the phone line that ran from Seattle to myhome in Phoenix. "You just need to tell him thetruth. Don't sugarcoat it because he'll think hehas a chance. You've made your decision tomove back to Seattle. You made this decisionlast year and he convinced you to stay. If youdon't make a clean break of things, I'm going tohunt you down and kick your ass."

he cheated on me, but the best I did was catchhim flirting with everything with tits. Phil looked less than enchanted with mydecision. At least I told him I was leaving theschool because I wanted to move home. He hadno idea my decision was part of "Operation SlayJames" and that meant a clean break fromPhoenix. "Look, you've quit your job, you don't have alease holding you hostage, and you have anapartment waiting for you up here in Seattle.You know what else? Your family and friendsare here." Rose's pep talk shook the uncertaintyout of me. I was ready to do this. "Rose, thank you for giving me a compellingargument. But mostly, thank you for reminding
