Carlisle had a plan as soon as Alice had told them all that Edward and Bella were coming to the house. They were going to pack up and all move away as they did many times before. This time would be different though, they would have a human with them. They would have to be careful. What will the next town hold for them? Will Bella be changed to a vampire and stay with Edward forever? Will Edward think that it’s too dangerous for her to come with them and make her stay human? Read and find out. Thank you for your reviews.
I am adding this note because I need to explain the beginning. Sorry for any confusion. They are running away from Victoria and the Volturi. Bella wanted to run away somewhere where she wouldn't be found and she knew that if she stayed, they would know exactly where she was. She also did not want Charlie, Renee, or Jacob to be hurt in any way. I know that this is a bit different from the actual story, but it's just that. It's a story. Thank you for reading. :)

Rating 5/5 Word Count 1518 Review this Chapter
Bella’s eyes shot open and she couldn’t see anything. She looked up and realized that she was lying on the ground in a clearing in the woods. She slowly got up and grabbed her cell phone from her pocket which was still there. She was relieved. She opened it up so that it would show a small light, she looked around and almost screamed when she saw a girl lying face down on the ground about five feet from her. She ran over to her and turned her over and stood up. ‘Jordan?’ she thought to herself. She checked to see if she was breathing and she was faintly. She wanted to get out of here fast, wherever she was. She looked at her phone and dialed Edward on his cell.
Edward jumped when his phone rang. “It’s Bella’s phone”, he shouted to Alice and the rest of his family. They had all been out looking for Bella since that afternoon. They all stopped as he took the call.
“Hello”, he said almost asking in a way.
“Edward”, Bella said softly.
“BELLA! Where are you? Are you okay?” Edward said quickly.
“I think that I’m okay. I woke up on the ground and Jordan is hurt. She’s near me on the ground as well. I don’t know what happened. I don’t know where I am.” Bella said.
“Stay put, we’ll find you.” Edward said and then looking over at Alice.
Edward let Bella go so that he could talk to his family.
“She sounded fine, better than fine. She’s okay and Jordan’s hurt. Alice, did you see anything like this happening?” Edward said all in one breath.
“No, not at all. The last vision I had was Jordan taking Bella away somewhere. I can’t even locate Bella right now?” Alice said frustrated.
“That’s okay, let’s see, try and think of Alice and where she might be right now.” Edward said having a theory.
Alice closed her eyes and opened them back up with a revelation. “She is not well at all. She is close to dying? She’s unconscious and lying on the ground near the outskirts of town near the cliffs and the ocean. She’s in the woods near the old baseball fields. Let’s go.”
The family headed off in that direction in their cars and was there within ten minutes. Edward couldn’t stop the car fast enough and got out to run towards Bella.
“Are you okay?” Edward said looking Bella over as Carlisle looked over Jordan. Bella smiled and said, “Yes, I am actually. Although, I have no idea why I’m here.”
“Jordan took you earlier from school. She was pretending to be Alice and you believed her and she took you. Are you sure that you’re okay?” Edward asked noticing how odd Bella was acting.
“Oh… I don’t remember Jordan taking me from school. And stop asking if I’m okay. Let’s go home. I’m tired.” Bella said grabbing Edward’s hand and walking towards their cars.
“Where’s Colin?” Edward asked.
“Colin? I don’t know. Never saw him. Hey, is Jordan okay back there, she looked bad.” Bella said.
“I don’t know and I don’t care. Let’s get you home.” Edward said helping Bella into the car.
Edward looked at Bella and smiled and gave her a small kiss on her cheek and said, “I’ll be right back. Okay. Then, we’ll head home.”
Edward walked back towards the family who were all just as stumped as he was.
Rosalie was the first to say something, “What is going on with this picture, what is going on with Bella? Who is that girl and what has she done with Bella Swan? Carlisle said that was the real Jordan and she’s hurt bad. She bleeding all over and has lost a lot of blood. She needs some time to rest and she’ll be okay in a few days. Carlisle said that he has never seen a vampire lose that much blood before. Do you think that Bella did that?”
“I have no idea? I can’t see the past.” Alice said frowning.
“If she did do that, I wonder why she can’t remember any of it.” Jasper said.
“And Bella has no blood on her whatsoever; don’t you think that’s kind of odd?” Alice said.
“I don’t know, I’m just glad that Bella’s okay and she seems unharmed except for the weird personality right now.” Emmett said.
“So, what do you think Edward?” Rosalie asked.
“To be honest, I have no idea what to think. All I know is that, Bella survived whatever attacked Jordan and they did not attack her. There is something going on here, and I want to get to the bottom of this. How did Bella survive this situation without our help? A human can not defend theirself against vampires, right?” Edward said looking back at the car watching Bella talking on her cell phone.
“Who is the world is she talking too?” Edward said walking over to the car.
They watched Edward walk towards the car and got in the driver’s side door.
Bella hung up the phone and said, “Hi you. Are we going yet?”
“Yes, but first, tell me something. Who were you talking too?” Edward questioned.
“Charlie. I wanted to let him know that I was okay and that he didn’t have to worry about me anymore.” Bella said.
And then she looked at Edward straight in the eye and said, “You don’t have to worry about me anymore either. None of you do. It’s all going to be fine. No one will be coming after me anymore.” Bella sat back in her seat and smiled to herself.
Edward was getting frustrated, “Who are you? What happened here tonight?”
“I don’t know. All I know is that I keep feeling better and better as each minute goes by. I feel so fearless. I have no worries in life anymore. I feel like I can defeat anything that comes across me. I don’t know why I feel this way, I just do. It’s crazy, Edward. I feel so alive and so awake!” Bella said.
“Perhaps, Carlisle should have a look at you when we get back to the house?” Edward said puzzled.
“Why, I feel fine. Let’s go with it. For once, I am not scared. Who knows, maybe I’m some kind of superhero or something who doesn’t even know it. I mean, I am immune to some of the powers of vampires.” Bella said.
“Superhero? Please.” Edward said laughing.
“I know, right. Okay, so maybe not superhero. But, I don’t know. All I know is that Jordan looked a lot worse than me and I don’t have a scratch on me.” Bella said holding out her hands for Edward to see.
“I know Bella, which is true. Let’s go home” Edward said as he turned the car ignition and headed back to the house.
“Carlisle will be able to figure this all out, he has seen a lot in his years.” Edward mentioned.
“Hmmm…maybe you’re right. I’ll let Carlisle look over me.” Bella said.
They arrived to the house and Edward and Bella walked into the house. Esme ran and gave Bella a hug.
“Alice called and said that you were okay. I’m so glad to hear. We were all so worried. How did you do it? You aren’t even hurt?” Esme said squeezing her in a hug.
Bella couldn’t speak through Esme’ hair and said, “Mmphm Mphine”
Esme let go and said, “What was that, I’m sorry.”
Bella laughed and said, “I’m fine.”
Esme looked at Edward and said, ‘What’s going on Edward, is she really okay? Something’s different.’
Edward looked up and nodded in agreement.
Esme looked at Bella told her, “Dear, perhaps you should go rest in your room. Carlisle will be home shortly after dropping off Jordan at the Mackenzie residence and he’ll look in on you.”
Bella smiled and said, “Perhaps you’re right. I’ll see you in the morning Esme. Edward, will you come say good night?”
Edward nodded and watched Bella walk to her room. He waited til he heard the door shut and looked at Esme.
“Mom, what happened to Bella?” Edward asked.
“Something happened to her. She’s different. I don’t know. This is so strange. She can’t be a vampire because it takes three days and we would be able to sense that.” Esme said thinking out loud.
“I know, but, she acts like….” Edward started.
“Acts like she’s fearless?” Esme said.
“I know, perhaps Carlisle will find out something when he gets home.” Edward said.
Up in Bella’s room, she was sitting at her desk and looking at herself in the mirror. She looked around and made sure she was by herself. She was and she looked back in the mirror and smiled. She knew that she was different, different in a good way. As she looked back in the mirror and said, “Whatever happened to me, I’m glad it did. I haven’t felt better.”
