I walked to the phone, hesitant.
I sighed in relief. It was our friend from school, Evelyn.
'Can I get it?' I asked quietly.
Esme nodded and Carlisle turned to me.
'Not a word of our...situation, alright?' He said, smiling.
I pressed the call button.
'Pheebs?' Evelyn asked.
'Hey Ev.' I said.
'Hey! How's Spoons?' She asked jokingly.
'Very funny. It's Forks, not spoons. I already tried that on our first day, the locals weren't amused.'
'What time is it at home?' I asked.
'Half 1. Why? What time is it there?' She replied.
'Half 9. I still amn't used to the time difference yet.'
'When are you coming home?' She asked.
I gulped. I looked at Carlisle and Esme in sheer terror, waving my hands in a "What will I do?" gesture.
Esme flitted over to me.
'Tell her 'soon enough'.' She said quietly.
'Soon enough, Ev' I said, my voice cracking.
'Yeah like, what date? I haven't seen you in forever!' She gushed.
'Ummm I don't know. I haven't checked the tickets. Look I have to go. Love you.' I said.
'Love you too Pheebs. Talk to you later.'
'Right. Bye bye bye bye.' I said, doing the very Irish "multiple goodbyes"
I put the phone down and turned to face my new family.
