I was sitting in Edward’s car, fidgeting. I couldn’t sleep last night and had backed a ton of cookies and new white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. They were sitting in the backseat of Edward’s car. I twisted my bracelet on my wrist, nervous, anxious and almost sick to my stomach. James never introduced me to his parents. They were always out of town. It was probably a good thing. I assumed they were just as sadistic as he was.
“Sweet girl, calm down,” Edward soothed, threading his fingers with mine. “My parents are going to love you.”
“You think?” I squeaked, my low self-esteem pouring off of me in waves.
“Baby,” Edward cooed, pulling over and parking his car in a church parking lot. “We don’t have to do this.”
“I’m just…I’m afraid that your family will think that I’m not good for you,” I whispered, a lone tear streaking down my cheek. Edward’s thumb caresses my skin and he gently moves my face so I am looking at him. “I’m sorry.”
