I glared at Charlie because he was being so childish. Maybe I did not have the right to behave like that towards my father but there was just no other suitable word for his rudeness. Charlie stood up with his arms crossed, Edward still behind me. I kept staring madly at him and his brown eyes until he tilted his hands up in defense, ‘All right. I’m going. I’m not going to apologize though.’ He grumbled, waltzing out of the kitchen. I sighed shaking my head and not wanting a headache ruining my evening. I turned towards Edward who still hadn’t moved from his spot, ‘Sorry about that. He’s on edge I think.’ I explained shrugging and walking to a chair to sit down onto. I guessed that while he was allowed to come here on normal times now, Charlie wouldn’t appreciate it if I took Edward upstairs to my room. Not that Charlie knew about Edward’s usual night visits so I could sleep well.
I glanced at Edward who was still standing, a deep frown on his forehead.

‘Edward?’ I said, questioningly, which got his attention the frown gone immediately, ‘I thought you brought me something?’ I tried to lighten up the mood and awkwardness here in my home. Edward suddenly was all serious now and tugged a bunch of paperwork out of the back pockets of his jeans. Now it was my turn to frown, or even better – a nasty scowl was more like it. I knew exactly what those papers were and I wasn’t really pleased about it. before I could argue on it and say it wasn’t needed he was already talking, ’Don’t start on me just yet. I want to explain it if that’s okay?’
He made it sound like a question, as if the choice was mine, but I knew he would explain it to me anyway, so I just nodded, still scowling.
Edward took a seat in front of me, not Charlie’s chair since that would make the old goat get his underwear in a twist, and splayed the papers onto the table.
‘I’ve told you frequently that I want you to go to college and you told me as often that you refuse to go. Why is still clueless to me, but please get this – I’m a vampire have lived for nearly a hundred years and studied quite a lot. You’ve seen the graduation caps at our staircase,’ he started, his eyes wide sometimes when he tried to make a point. My lips quivered, wanting to break into a small grin when I thought about the graduation caps in all colors on the wall next to the staircase in the Cullen house.

‘You, my love, have only started your life just yet. you’re eighteen, young and new to all of this,’ he indicated the space around us, but I knew he meant our relationship also, ‘Yes, we have children who are far from human and surely no babies anymore, but it’s important for your development to go to college Melody. It’s something every teenager should experience. A human experience.’ He was saying the last two words very slowly. The grimace was still evident on my face – I did not like where this was heading.
‘Please, baby, choose something you’d like to do and sign up. You’re only eighteen once in your life.’ He was almost pleading with me to do it, his eyes holding a spark of agony. There was a catch somewhere. I narrowed my eyes when he slowly pushed the papers toward my side of the table. I took hold of them, turning one around when my eyes caught the name of the university he wanted me to apply too. startled, I glanced at the other, followed by the last one. I stared at them for a while, my eyes wide not understanding him.
‘Florida State University, California State University in LA and Arizona State University….’ I whispered not looking at him, letting it sink in.
‘All warm places with an enormous amount of sunlight and…no vampires…’ I was frantically mumbling, still holding the crisp white sheets.

My head snapped up when I heard him uttering that word. Anger started to boil in my veins, my muscles terribly wanting to hit something. My fingers were crumpling the sheets as my teeth gritted.
‘Melody I wasn’t done explain- ‘

‘You PROMISED to NEVER leave me again!’ I exploded, not caring that Charlie or Bella would hear. I was fuming, half expecting steam to come out of my ears.
‘No! Melody listen! I meant what I said on both accounts. No I’m NOT leaving and No there won’t be vampires close to you or Raven and Blaze. You’ll be safe. That’s all that matters.’ He argued still sitting on the chair while I had started to pace around the small kitchen.
‘Me, Raven and Blaze. And where are you then huh? Edward you ARE a fucking vampire. You CAN’T endure sunlight!’ I raged, suddenly feeling the need the hit the sheets of crumpled paper onto the table with a slap. He didn’t shrink back at all, though his fierce golden eyes darted, ‘THIS is not happening, e che sta finito!’
Then the kitchen door burst open and Charlie was standing in the doorway, his face, like mine, scrunched up in anger.

‘What’s going on here? I only hear screaming and yelling. I thought you could handle it as adults,’ he hissed the last word towards Edward,’ but then I heard a slap and I swear if you hit my daughter then-‘
‘Dad he did not hit me or the other way around. Go watch baseball and let me handle this myself.’ I said, my voice on a normal pitch but strained by my tense jaw. Charlie stayed in the kitchen for another minute and then left without another word.
