Edward and Bella are returning from their trip to Florida as Bella recounts one pointed conversation she had with her mother, Renee, during their visit. Upon arrival at home Charlie expresses missing Bella while she was away, especially her cooking, and tells her to call Jacob as soon as possible. Jacob, who had apparently been calling frequently that day, called again.
Confused at the strange conversation she just had with Jacob, Bella begins to cook for Charlie and try to decipher the meaning behind Jacobs words. Moments later, Bella theorizes that Jacob was checking up on her to see if she had run off to be "changed".
The following day Bella is met with a surprise visitor at school. Jacob has come to relay a message to the Cullen family. In doing so, Edward is forced to reveal his real reason for taking Bella away for the weekend; Victoria is back. With that frightening information, along with the news that during the chase there was an altercation between Emmett and Paul, Bella is left stunned and frightened. And with a renewed longing for her friendship with Jacob.
After the meeting Bella and Edward adjourn to class where they pass messages back and forth and both come to terms with the new situation they find themselves in. Through this conversation Edward agrees to not keep something like this from her again.
