As soon as I saw his beautiful features I screamed. I heard Jacob running up the stairs to see what was wrong. As Edward’s grim smile widened Jake came to rescue me. Edward was gone in a flash.

I felt the whole in my heart rip open at seeing him run away. I wanted him to come back, but then again not too. I cried and cried, remembering the harsh words he had spoken.

“I don’t want you to come with me, Bella” he said.

“You don’t want me?”

“No.”

The whole ripped farther open. I felt myself faint and rejoiced in the blackness that held me.

“Bella. Bella. Bella, wake up. Kristen’s home. And Sam, Emily, Andrew and Rachel are here too. Wake up.”

My eyes fluttered open to see my husband. My Jacob. I loved him so much. I couldn’t let Edwards return have an impact on our relationship. I wouldn’t. I gazed into his deep eyes. I quickly saw through his pretenses and saw the pain behind his eyes. He thought I was going to leave him for Edward.

“Jake. I really need to take a shower now. Will you keep them company till I’m done?” I asked him pleadingly.

“Sure, sure. I’ll keep an eye on them. Anything for you, honey.”

As he walked down the stairs to our company, I walked into the bathroom. I took a short shower not wanting to keep them for very long. The hot water and steam helped calm me down. The picture of his face was burned onto the back of my eyelids. It was a picture I would never lose.

I got dressed and walked downstairs to be met by a small girl running up to give me a hug. I caught her as she tripped on the lower stair. I laughed to myself. She was so much like me.

“Mommy! I’m so glad you’re up! I missed you! I still had fun though. Rachel got a puppy, can you believe it? I want a puppy, mom.”

I just chuckled and pulled her closer. She was so beautiful. My daughter. My Kristen. I ran my fingers through her raven black hair. She looked like her father but acted like me. It was a great combination.

“Kristen, why don’t you show Rachel and Andrew your new tree house while I make breakfast?”

Her eyes grew wide and excited as the children darted outside like lightning bolts. They were so adorable. I watched them run outside and wished I could still do that. I walked downstairs and greeted Sam and Emily.

“Hey Sam. Hey Emily. How are you?”

They looked at each other and then at me. Sam took a cautious step forward and placed a hand on my shoulder. He looked into my eyes with a deep concern.

“Bella, last night the pack came across some trails. We followed them as long as we could without breaking the treaty. The trails eventually caught us up with a familiar face. I think the bloodsuckers name was Alice. She asked about you. We told her you died to keep her away. She ran off and we thought we should warn you that they are back.”

I looked at Sam and tilted my head to the side. I already knew this. Did Jacob already tell them?

“Didn’t Jacob already tell you? I found out this morning. Edward was at my window.”

A look of shock danced across Sam and Emily’s faces. They looked at Jacob who just nodded. Emily spoke this time.

“He was here? Wouldn’t that break the treaty? Shouldn’t we attack? I mean, they are just a bunch of bloodsuckers.”

Those words inspired so much hatred and pain that I could barely contain myself. I felt as though the world had turned upside down in one day. I wish all this would just end! I felt myself wish that it would just stop. That my husband wasn’t a werewolf and my old love wasn’t a vampire. I wish that Edward had died in that influenza.

The rest of the time they were here passed without concern or consequence. We didn’t speak of my encounter or of what the pack found. It was around noon that I found that we were out of most of our food. I decided to make a run to the store.

As I drove down to the local grocery store, I thought I saw a silver Volvo behind me. I decided it was just a mirage and kept driving. I reached the store and walked inside. I began to grab what I needed. As I neared the check-out line I saw them. They looked exactly like they did before.

I kept walking like I hadn’t seen them. I wished I hadn’t. I glimpsed them walking towards me and I cursed under my breath. Why didn’t Jake come with me? I could really use them right now! I cursed and cursed until the little one spoke.

“Bella? We need to talk to you about Edward.”

I glared at them and kept walking. I paid for my purchases while they stood next to me. I stomped out to my truck and got inside. I could see the small black haired one in the seat next to me.

“What Alice?” I asked in a malicious voice. “Does he want me back? Tell him he is too late. I am married and have a great life. I don’t want or need him anymore. Tell him to stop stalking me.”

I looked forward so I wouldn’t start crying. Alice knew me better than this I thought. I just prayed that she wouldn’t see through my façade. I drew in deep breaths to calm me down. Alice turned her head to look at me.

“Bella. He left our family about 2 years ago. He hasn’t been back since. But I know what he plans to do Bella. And you don’t want it to come true.”

I stared at her in disbelief. Edward had left the Cullens? How can that be true? He was the first one to be changed. How?

“What is his plan Alice? What did you see?”

Her face grew even paler and pained. She looked as if someone had just died or she was seriously injured. I shook her saying “what did you see, what did you see?”

She answered carefully. She didn’t want me to know this but she had to tell me.

“Edward is going to kill Jake and your daughter to get you back. He wants your perfect life to disappear so that he will be able to take you back.”

Her perfect face showed no trace of a lie. I could feel the unconsciousness slip over me as I thought about the magnitude of what she had just said. Dead. My life. Gone.
