I saw Edward saying good-bye to Bella.

I saw Victoria's smile.

I saw Bella collapse.

I saw Edward leave.

I saw Victoria break Bella's wrist.

I saw her take the ring.

And I saw her bite Bella...

Jasper and I ran, following Bella's scent through a forest. It got so heavy that I'm sure if not for the circumstances Jasper would have been going crazy. I probably would have been going crazy. We reached the clearing. We were early, Edward was still there. Bella was just falling to the ground, and Edward was turning around and starting to run.

I told Jasper to go get him. He ran off after him. Then I turned my head just in time to see Victoria plunging her teeth into Bella's throat.

I screamed as threw myself into Victoria, which wasn't very smart, because it only ripped a whole in Bella's throat. I held my breath, but I could tell Victoria wasn't. Her eyes were a deep red; fresh with Bella's blood.

If we were to fight she would most definitely win. Not that I'm afraid to take her on. I just don't want to have to fight, and have Bella screaming in the background. Victoria looked at me threateningly and raised her eyebrow. I looked at Bella and said, "Go Victoria you've done enough!"

"To be continued." She said tilting her head as in goodbye, and she ran off in the same direction as Edward, and Jasper.

I ran over to Bella, called for Jasper, and ran. Jasper appeared out of the bushes, and followed after me.

"Did you find him?"

"Yes. But he was in too much pain for me to get even 50 yards close to him."

I nodded. "Call Carlisle, we need to take care of Bella."

"Hmm... I'm surprised her blood isn't bothering me at all. I'm kind of used to it." He said with a triumphant smile.

"Alright Macho-Man. I'm very proud of you. Now call Carlisle." I said.

His smile faded to a grimace. He pulled out his phone and dialed Carlisle's number. "He's not answering."

"Call the house." I said panic creeping into my voice. I felt a wave of calmness rush over me. "Thank you."

"Anytime..." He dialed the house phone. "No answer."

"The hospital?" I suggested.

He dialed the number. "Hello, can I speak to Dr. Cullen? ... No, this is his son... No, not Edward, Jasper... What do you mean he's not there? ... Ugh... Okay... Well, thank you for your help." He shut the phone.

"We need to find him. Or at least get to the house. I can't hold Bella much longer. She is gunna start screaming soon, and thrashing." I said.

"Alright, alright." He said slowing down. "Give her to me."

We made a complete stop, and I handed Bella over. "Okay... Do you trust me?" he asked with pain behind his eyes.

"Yes...Wh-" I started to ask, but jasper when straight to Bella's throat and started sucking. "Jasper!" I yelled. He didn't move at all. I called his name again a little louder. Then my vision started to get blurry...

"Alice? Alice? Where are you?" called Edward excitement in his voice.

"I'm right here." I saw his head poke around the corner. His face was all light up. "Why are you so happy?" I asked skeptically.

"I-I-I'M GETTING MARRIED!!!" he yelled, throwing his arms up in the air. I felt my body start to shake with sobs.

Edward's face fell immediately. "What?"

"How could you?" I yelled. Venom running down my cheeks.

(This is how my vampires cry. I stole the idea from someone else. SORRY, but I liked it.)

"What?!" Edward yelled back. "I thought you out of anyone would be right behind me."

"Yeah, well you thought wrong." I said icily.

"What do you want me to do, Alice? Bella's is dead and you know it. I just- just-" he tried to say before falling to the ground and crying at the thought of Bella.

"Little did you know..." I said trailing off.

"Alice? Alice? Alice, baby what did you see?" I opened my eyes to see Jasper holding my shoulders and looking into my eyes. His had a tint of red in them. When I realized what he had done I slapped him.

"OW! Alice, what the hell was that for?"

"You killed her!" I yelled slapping him again. I went to hit him again, but he grabbed my wrist.

"No, Alice. I didn't. Calm down. I remembered how Edward sucked out the venom in Phoenix, and I tried to reenact." He said pointing to the now sleeping Bella.

"Oh, Jasper. I am so sorry! I just didn't know. I-I..." I said clutching his bare shoulders for support. "Wait, where did your shirt go?" I asked.

"Oh, Bella's neck had a huge hole in it, so I was using the fabric to cover it up." I nodded my head.


We both turned to see Carlisle driving by. I ran to the side of the road to catch up to him. He was smiling.

"Carlisle!" I yelled, fear etching every syllable.

"What?" his face fell.

"It's Bella."

"WHAT! What happened? Wasn't she supposed to be with Edward today?"

"Yeah, but the Asshole, decided to get back together with Victoria, and he left her there, alone" I said pointing in toward the forest, "with Victoria who bit her. Jasper and I got there in time-"

"Wait, so she is transforming?" he asked happiness creeping in his voice.

"No, Jasper sucked out the venom, but she has a huge hole in her throat, and we need you to care for her." He nodded and we ran off into the trees and stopped as soon as we saw Victoria and Edward. They were already fighting.

"No, I don't want to!" Edward stubborn as ever. But it confused me. Why was he so stubborn to go where ever he was, when HE chose Victoria? Some things I will never know, because I am not talking to that asshole ever again.

"But you will anyways." Victoria quarreled back.

"No! I won't. I don't want you."

"Oh well, she's dead. I killed her myself!" Victoria yelled.

Edward roared and lunged at her.

"Ed-" I started to yell, but caught off by Carlisle throwing his hand to my mouth.

He shook his head, and motioned toward the smell of Bella's blood.

When we got there Bella, was just drifting into consciousness, and Jasper was looking around, wait for us probably.

"Alice, go to my car and get my bag. Jasper, go to the house and set up the kitchen table for Bella, I don't know how long this is going to take, or what precautions we need." We nodded and ran. I heard Bella starting to stir and Carlisle whispering sweet nothing in her ear.

I jumped into the car and started rummaging around.

I checked the glove compartment.

Not there.

I checked the hand rest.

Not there.

I checked under the seats.

Not there.

And I checked the trunk.

Not there.

"Carlisle it's not there." I yelled as soon as I approached him.

"It's not? I swear I-"

"What's going o- Oh hi Alice!" slurred Bella, who was still lying on the floor.

"Hey Bells." And then turning my attention back to Carlisle, "We need to get her to the house. Can you run with her, and I'll drive the car back?"

"Yes. Alright Bella...Bella? BELLA!" he yelled. I looked down to see her body convulsing. He tried to open her eyes, but her pupils were rolled back into the back of her head.

"Alice, help me! Hold down her right side, but not to tightly." I did as he told me to, and held on to her left side. It was a struggle to hold her down, well at least with out hurting her.

"Oh my..." Carlisle whispers.

"What? I don't like that..."

"Her wrist is also broken on this side. I can feel the break so well. It's almost like it was intentional..."

"Victoria," I growled.

"That makes sense." Bella's body continued to convulse, but not as roughly. "Okay, now let her go. I need to get her to the house."

As soon as we got to the drive way we heard more yelling.

"Just get your shit and go! We'll get more later!" Victoria.

"I at least have to say good bye." Edward.

"Carlisle," I whispered. "Neither of us can go in there, we both smell like Bella."

"Uhh, okay. I have an idea. Go hide her in a car in the garage. Put a seat belt on her so if she ceases again she won't get too hurt. And then go inside, we'll say that we took the body to Charlie, and he wanted to be alone with her for awhile."

"But what if she wakes up?"

Then he did something really weird.
