Behind Closed Doors – Chapter 17 Teaser

Ch17BCDTeaser

I’m taking the Berlin job.

Yeah?

Yes.

Are you sure?

100%. I’ll call Alistair to let him know. And Carlisle.

All right. I’m going to miss you, but I’ll always have a spot open if you ever need it.

I’ll keep that in mind. But right now, this is what I need. It’s the right move.

Congratulations on the show! You were great. I loved how you stuck it to ol’ Newton.

Thanks. I’ve got plans to make. Let’s talk about it later.

Okay. Let me know if you need anything.

I tuck my phone into my bag after texting Emmett and wipe away a few stray tears. When I walk through the door of our apartment, Angela is still where I left her, quick to offer her praise.

“Congratulations, Bella. You did amazing.” She holds her hand up for a high-five.

I smack our hands together, then collapse on the couch beside her. “Thanks.”

“I have no idea how you kept your cool with Newton. He’s a grade-A asshole. I bet he isn’t any better off camera.”

“Worse, actually. You have no idea.” A few more tears escape, but I don’t catch them before Angela notices.

“Hey, what’s going on? I expected you to be more excited post-show. Have you been crying?”

I crumble at her question and fresh tears trail down my cheeks.
