"Is this the fastest you can drive?" Bella said panicking, as they sped towards her family’s home. "It is if you don’t want me to get a ticket. Your dad is the Sheriff, let them pull us over, there is something wrong, something very wrong. We only use those words when it is a life or death situation. Please, step on it!" She was now close to screaming. Terick, understood her panic, and did as she requested and pressed the petal all the way to the floor. Unfortunately he didn't have a hot rod race car or anything, just a normal grey pick up, but he pushed her as far as she could go. He sped around all the twists and turns till he arrived at their nice big white house. Bella didn’t wait for the truck to come to a complete stop before opening the door and jumping out. She jumped up the four steps leading to the front door in one giant leap and flew through the front door. She turned right and saw first her father, his back turned to her, his arms crossed, head down and face in his arms, and she could tell he was crying, his entire body shaking.
