Behind Closed Doors – Chapter 8 Teaser


Are you still coming over today?

I’m probably being juvenile, but I’m still a little pissed off about our run-in at Old Ebbitt’s. Of course, Emmett and I see people we know when we’re out; however, I never anticipated not only seeing Edward, but also for him to sit next to us with such an air of indifference toward me or the conversation. His attitude was off-putting, and I haven’t been able to shake off mine ever since.

Is that a good idea?

Why wouldn’t it be?

I thought you might have made other plans.

I’m giving him an out, wondering if he will take it and move on to the next willing female.

I made plans with you, Bella. Do you have other plans?


Then come over.

I need to stop being childish. I know we need to talk, which means more than a few texts here and there that we have been volleying between us ever since the restaurant run-in.

Do you still want me to cook?

Of course, but I can order something if you would rather not.

I will. I need to stop by the store on my way.

Okay, see you soon.

I should be more excited about seeing him, but I’m dreading how this day will go.
