(Human Bella’s POV)

I awoke to the sound of mild chatter, not quite remembering anything. Where am I? I thought, peeling open one eye. Not anyplace I remember. The sun was shining brightly, casting light on six hooded forms. Vampires?

And then it all hit me. James, Victoria, the ballet studio, my mother…and Edward. Looking closer, I recognized one hooded form as Alice.

“Alice?” I croaked--my throat was dry. How long had I been out for?

“BELLA!!!” She squealed, “Your awake!!”

As if on cue, all other five shapes hurried to my side, smiling and looking relieved.

Carlisle raised his eyebrows. “You’ve got a bit of explaining to do…”

(Vampire Bella’s POV [in the airport])

The human Bella was the first to react. “EDWARD!!!” She shouted, and raced into his arms. Well, raced as fast as she could. James hadn’t done as much damage as I remember, but he did give quite a blow to her chest, breaking some ribs, most likely, and she was slow going.

Edward cast a half suspicious- half panicked glance in my direction before scooping her up in his arms. “Bella… I thought I had lost you! But, why…” He shot me a look and then returned his gaze to me. The human me. No, wait, the vampire me. Oh never mind.

Carlisle spoke up. “Bella,” He nodded to my human form, “says she has no idea what is going on. I assume you do?” Simultaneously 8 stares fixed themselves on my face.

I sighed. “Yes, I do, actually.”

They waited.

“I’m Bella. Bella from…the future.” The was a collective intake of breath, and then Emmett burst out laughing.

“What the hell…?” He said between giggles.

(Emmett’s POV)

She said -giggle- that she was -giggle- from the -giggle- FUTURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh wait. She wasn’t kidding…

*****

(Bella [Vampire]’s POV)

5 hours and dinner for the human later we had reached some what of an understanding.

“So I need to get back to the time machine…” I trailed off hesitantly.

There was an awkward pause.

“Oh! Ahem. We’ll come with.” Carlisle said. I assume he was a bit baffled. I don’t blame him. When giving my “confession” speech, I confused myself.

We took off towards the dance studio again, and I prayed that the time machine was still there. If it wasn’t, I was dead meat. What if Victoria already took it??

Oh shoot. That would be bad…

But to my relief, as we jogged past the corner, the white crystal machine was still there.

******

(Edward’s POV [in the future])

I still hadn’t moved. It had been an entire week of no feeding, no talking, nothing. I was heartbroken.

How was I supposed to get my angel back? If lady luck was smiling on me, Bella might still be alive. And if that was the case, I had hope yet of rescuing her.

Not that I could rescue her even if I tried. If Victoria caught even a whiff of my being near she wouldn’t hesitate to slit Bella’s throat. And then it would be my fault.

Oh, who am I kidding. It’s my fault anyways.

Its my fault for not hearing Alexander’s thoughts. My fault for not protecting her. My fault for putting her in danger in the first place.

All my fault.

“EEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDDDWWWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRDDDD!!!!!” Alice’s shrill voice pierced the night air. I didn’t bother even lifting my head, she was probably resorting back to meek reassurances again.

Her lithe frame split through the surrounding forest and sprinted towards me, a huge smile spread across her face. “ITS BELLA!!!! SHE’S ON HER WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” She screamed, although we were no more then a foot from each other.

I shot into a standing position, nearly leaping a foot into the air. Bella was alive?? She was coming?? Ecstasy shot through me in one startling blow, but i pushed it off. It can’t be true.

“Seriously?” I asked, way too loud considering the distance between us. Alice just nodded and the smile grew even bigger if possible.

“I saw it in a vision!! She was running, and then I saw you! And you finally smiled after all that time!”

An energized excitement spread through my veins, leaving my elated spirits soaring. Bella really was coming back! She was alive! But wait.

I can’t hope. It will ruin me.

A sound from behind us startled me from my thoughts, and I whirled.

A brunette, pale girl, came sprinting from around the corner.

“EDWARD!”
