11. Thunder 10

Bella and I came home that afternoon, smelling something that wasn’t quite right. I hung up my jacket, dropped my backpack beneath the peg and kicked of my shoes before following Bella into the kitchen. When I left the hallway, a foul smell evaded my nose making me grimace. With a scrunched up face I came to stand next to Bella, seeing our dad vigorously poking into a mass of spaghetti. Normally, poking with a fork into food wouldn’t be so weird, but seeing Charlie’s was practically killing it made it different. 
Okay,…what now? Bella’s mind echoed. I scratched my cheek with raised eyebrows as we stood there still looking at Charlie.
I scraped my throat, ‘ What are you doing?’ my question made the grumbling man look up from his victim. Huh…didn’t hear them come in…
‘Can’t you see?’ he started, gesturing with the hand that wasn’t holding the fork to the pan ,’I’m making dinner.’ His voice was mocking and I did my very best not to laugh or roll my eyes. When Charlie started to do things he never does, there was something bothering him. 
‘Well, Dad if we’re eating that, I think I’ll pass.’ Bella said, chuckling slightly. I just shook my head. ‘Me too.’ if we were truly eating that, I was going to make a short hunt then I guess. 

Charlie sighed and dropped the fork with a clunk on the kitchen counter. Ah, so there was something that bothered him. 
He motioned for us to sit down on the chairs that surrounded the small table. We did as he pleased and he sat down in front of us. 
‘Alright, we need to discuss something, or rather said, I talk – you two listen to what I have to say.’ He began, pointed at us and putting on the ‘stern-stare’. I did that with Blaze quite some times. He was much hyperactive than Raven was. it then started to nag me, that Charlie was treating me like a twelve year old. I was a mother myself for a year by now so he didn’t need to do that. 
‘You both know why you were grounded an-‘
‘for practically a year…’ Bella interrupted him with an eye roll. 
Charlie grumbled again, ‘I said listening. Which you do with your ears, Isabella.’ He said, crossing his arms over his chest. 
‘Like I was saying, and don’t interrupt me now or I’ll take back the offer, I think it’s time to abrogate it. You’ve both been on mostly best behavior, so there is no reason anymore to keep you grounded.’ 
I was kind of dumbstruck. When he’d yelled that we would be grounded for a lifetime, I truly believed he meant that. A smug grin spread over my face. I could see Edward any time I wanted. That is, if we could get over the childish fights we constantly had. 
I somewhere knew that was coming. Too good to be true.

‘you can both see your friends and are free to go where you want but on one condition.’ He explained, making Bella whimper softly. And here I thought I could make out with Jake al night long…
‘You won’t be grounded any longer, but only if you go to spend more time with each other. Which means for you,’ he pointed at Bella, ‘less Jacob and more Melody. And for you,’ he pointed his index finger in my direction, more Raven and Blaze ‘Less Alice and Edward and more Bella.’ 
Fan-fucking-tastic. Sure, Bella and I had gotten closer somewhat, but having to spend time with her for freedom was kind of ridiculous. And I wouldn’t have time for it! during the days I spend my time on school until late in the afternoons, and at nights I would visit my sons and sibling sin Seattle. And then in between was time for Edward. 
And then it hit me. Charlie was doing that on purpose!
He thought, more raven and blaze, and said less Alice and Edward. which overall meant – school, Bella, twin, sleep. And above all no Edward. That didn’t fit really in to my schedule. 

Bella and I sighed after one another, chanced a sneaky glance at each other before we both nodded in agreement. It occurred me then, that more Bella meant automatically more Jacob, since Bella was always there when Charlie let her have some freedom. 
And here my relationship with Edward wasn’t something to call ‘sweetness and light’ at the moment. When he’d find out that I had to spend time on La Push, close to the werewolves, he might flip just a tad more. 
‘Good. Well, then I suppose that Bella could try and safe dinner I’d like to have a word with you,’ with that Charlie pointed at me somehow having found out how to close his mind from my oversensitive reading. ‘Well, there is not much to save here, Dad…I’ll call for chinese or something.’ 
Charlie told her to do that before waving his hand towards the living room. I rolled my eyes, growled a little too animalistic and went to the living room with him following me. Charlie closed the door behind him and did not indicate for me to sit down. So that meant we weren’t going to discuss some pretty things. I crossed my arms over my chest in a defensive stance and to be honest also to keep myself restrained – all the fighting with Edward left me on edge lately and I didn’t want to hurt my father.
