Chapter Spoiler/Sneak Peek:
When Bella came that following Saturday, I made sure to keep distance between us. I could tell that it was bothering her, that I was giving her the wrong impression. "You're not saying much," Bella mumbled as she handed me the next plate to rinse. I’d told her earlier that she didn't have to help me with my chores, but she argued that Billy had gone to bed early and she didn't want to be in my room without me while I cleaned, so I didn't fight about it. I shrugged and turned on the water.
"I have things on my mind," I said softly, hoping she'd let it go. Of course, that'd be too easy.
"Like what?" she pushed on, pausing before she handed me the next dish. My opened palmed lingered as I met her eyes. She seemed desperate for this information. She had no idea what she was asking for.
I quickly looked away. "Uhhh, just... things with my mom's trial, really."
Bella exhaled. "Edward, why do you lie to me?"
