This is the phone conversation between Edward and Charlie and the aftermath that takes place in chapter 7 of Running for Home. Make sure you’ve read at least that far. :)
Bella tries to hand me the phone. Her father must have asked to speak with me. Tears pour down her cheeks and I can’t find it in me to be upset at the moment. Fuck, he must have tore her a new one. I can’t imagine what he wants to say to me. I’m not sure I can deal with an irate parent right now. What if he asks for details? I’m not going to lie; I won’t fabricate a parent-friendly story. At the same time, I don’t want to make things worse for Bella. If I tell the truth, he’ll know that she lied. I shake my head. I can’t talk to him right now.
“Please.” Bella mouths.
