“Bella, I’ll be back soon. I have a few errands to run. It’s one day of practice,” I said as I stared at my girlfriend. She was having a freak-out moment. She had been having a lot of them since ESPN had labeled us as the favorites for the gold at the World Competition.
“But we need to practice!” she said, her brown eyes wild.
“You are in pain and I need to get some things done,” I said sternly. “I’ll be back by tonight. Go relax with
Alice and Rose. Have a spa day. You need some pampering. A massage…” My phone rang and it was Alice.
“Already done, Brit!” she squealed in my ear. “We’re on our way.”
“How in the hell do you do that?” I snickered.
“It’s a gift,” she replied. “Later!”
“Alice is on her way with Rosalie,” I said. “You will relax and enjoy it, damn it.”
Bella scowled and plopped down on the couch. Her arms were crossed over chest. “I hate wasting a day…”
“We’re not wasting a day. You fell yesterday and Emmett AND Jasper said that you should rest today. It’s giving me the opportunity to run some errands, beautiful,” I said, kneeling in front of her.
“What are these elusive errands?” Bella asked, arching a brow.
“Some stuff for my mom,” I lied. “She’s found a condo in Seattle and needs me to do a few things before she can sign the paperwork.” That was true. However, the deal was done. The only thing my mom needed to do was close up the house in London. She wasn’t going to do that until after the world competition.
“Okay,” she sighed.
