Rating 4/5   Word Count 3108   Review this Chapter

Edward was standing in the middle of the living room. His face was in shock. His eyes were panicked but so stunning and dazzling. He looked almost as if he were sobbing. I looked down to his shirt. Oh My GOODNESS. He had crmsion liquid all over the white button down shirt and all over his hands. Panic struck me. Edward has blood all over his shirt and hands, but that wasn't the worst part.

There was a body in a pool of blood on the floor. I wonder who that is....Wait I know that person's head. OH MY...IT WAS CHARLIE. Charlie was lying dead in a pool of blood. His face lifeless and dead. His eyes stuck in fear.

I started crying, my thoughts were racing through my mind. Wait, a minute....did Edward...NO he wouldn't of, would he? He loves me and he respects Charlie. He wouldn't want to kill Charlie, it would hurt me too much and besides Edward was a vegetarian, but what if he accidently lost control?

"Bella...." Edward started to speak his voice was shaky. I looked up into his eyes, they still had a panicked look in them. "Bella it wasn........"

"How..could...you" I said each word inbetween the sobs. "You...killed..Charlie." I ran out the door and turned once I was out of the driveway. I ran into the forest and I kept on running. I had no idea where I was going. I had to get that picture out of my mind, but it kept coming back. Edwards shirt and hands stained with my father's blood. My dad on the floor dead with a awful expression on his face. He was in fear as he was dying.

I collspsed on the ground. I couldn't run anymore. I was still crying and I had no energy in my body because I was too emotionally stressed. It seemed to take every ounce of energy to breathe. I heard the bushes move behind me. Oh-No my nightmare was coming true. I was relieved to see Alice walk out of them.

"Bella!" she exclaimed. "Thank Goodness I found you."

I just sat there and looked at her. She was next to me in an instant and her arms were around me.

"Bella, I'm so sorry about what happened to Charlie."

"I..can't...believe..he..would..do..that..to..Charlie." I choked with each word. It was true I couldn't believe that Edward would kill Charlie.

"Bella, Bella, you need to listen to me." She said her voice sounded like she was very soft and kind. "Edward...he..didn't kill Charlie. He was framed."

I stopped crying."What do you mean by framed?" Now I waS confussed. My eyes widened. "Because I saw him right there...no one else was there."

"Actually Bella..before you got there." She paused. I looked up at her face and by the blank expression on her face I could tell she was having a vision. "We need to talk somewhere else these woods are not safe."

"Umm...ok. Where?" I already knew where we were going to go. I didn't really want to go there.

"Would you mind if we went to my house. I need to talk to Carlisle right away." Alcie looked at me and then put me on my feet.

"I..." I didn't know what to say. I really didn't want to see Edward, but then again I wanted to be in his arms ad be comforted more than anything. I knew something was up if she needed to talk to Carlisle right away and I knew that we would end up going there anyway. "I guess it's ok."

With that she took me and placed me on her back. I hung tightly to her and placed my head in between my arm and her shoulder. I didn't want to get sicker than I already was. Within minutes we were at the Cullen's house. AS we ran in the front door I heard growling.

"Alice," the voice roared. "You weren't supposed to bring her here." I looked up and saw that it was Jasper.

"What would it of mattered if I did. WE have to talk to Carlisle right now. It's important. I had a vision."

"He's talking to Edward right now....hey did you teel Bella the whole story." He asked.

"No," Alice said shyly. "I sorta had a vision while I was talking to her."

"Alice, Bella, you two may come up now." Carlisle called from his office.

Edwards POV

(starts before Bella arrived home.)

I drove to Bella's house. I knew she wouldn't be back yet from La push, Ah, how could she go there with those filthy dogs. I knew she wanted to talk to Jacob but he going to just leave her there. Since I was gonna be at Bella's house earlier than she was I was going to make her lunch.

When I got to her house Charlie's cruiser was gone. Weird. Normally he was here.It was a Sunday afternoon and the fish weren't bitting yesterday so he wasn't going to go up today to fish. He must of changed his mind. Oh well.

I parked the car and went to the front door. It was unlocked. Somethings wrong. Charlie always locks the house when he leaves. When I opened the door a stong scent overcame me. It was the smell of blood. Human Blood. I saw a body on the floor and another vampire was kneeling over it. Victoria. I looked at the body lying on the floor in a pool of blood. It wasn't Bella. Thank God. But the bad news was that it was Charlie. He was dead. The life was sucked out of him by Victoria.

I growled. She looked up and saw me and smiled.

"I was just having a snack, Edward, would you like to join me?" Her smile was twisted as she said this. I tried to read her thoughts. It's only getting you back for what you did to James.

"But this is Bella's father. Yes it hurts me but why her father." I said coldly.

I overheard a two people talking early this morning and they gave me a great idea. She had overheard mine and Bella's conversation this morning.

"How would you feel if Bella ditched you and went to live with those werewolves before I killed her?" She asked menacingly.

"Bella would never leave me. We love each other." I looked at Charlie on the floor. I tried to see if he was still alive. I tried to read his thoughts but I heard nothing.

Not even if you she found out you killed her father. When she thought that she took some of Charlie's blood and threw it at me. It got all over my white shirt. I tried to wipe it off but it stayed and some got on my hands.

"She knows I would never do that."

We'll see. And with that Victoria was gone. I heard a car door shut. Oh- No Bella's home.

I heard the door open. When Bella saw me she smiled. But when she saw my shirt and hands her eyes went wide and she looked scared. Then she looked down even further to where Charlie was. She started to cry.

"Bella," my voice was a little shaken. She looked up at me. Her eyes were so pained. So hurt. "Bella it wasn." before I could finish speaking she spoke.

"How..could...you" She was crying even harder now and she thinks I did it. She thinke I killed Charlie. "You..killed..Charlie." With saying that she ran out the door.

"Bella!" I screamed. She left she thinks that I killed her dad.Just then I heard laughing behind me.

"Oh, yes." It was Victoria. "She knows that you wouldn't kill her father." Her voice was so sarcastic.

I turned around and she was gone. I had to tell Carlisle. Maybe Alice would talk to Bella and tell her what happened. I ran home as soon as I was in the door Alice was waiting for me.

"You have to go to Bella's house Victoria is going to kill Charlie." Alice didn't know that it already had happened. I looked down at the floor. "Oh My..What is all over you be glad Jasper isn't here."

"Victoria framed me. She splashed Charlie's blood on me and left right before Bella got home. I couldn't explain anything to Bella all she said was 'You killed him, You killed Charlie.' then she took off running into the forest"

"I'll go and talk to her. If Victoria is on the lose then she is not safe at all."

"Thanks Alice."

"No Problem but please change you're clothes."

I quickly changed my clothes and I went to talk to Carlisle. I went into his office.

"Carlisle," I started. He looked up. "Victoria's back..she killed Charlie." His eyes widdened. " Then she splashed blood all over me and left before Bella opened the door."

"I see and Bella knows that Victoria did it right?" He was so compasionate.

"Alice is talking with her right now. You see, Bella thinks I killed Charlie. " After I said that I heard Alice coming through the front door. "Alice and Bella are here." I could hear Jasper and Alice talking and I knew Carlisle could too. "They want to talk to you, Alice had a Vision. I can't make it out though she needs to come up here."

"I'll call them up."

"But what about Bella? Alice didn't explain it to her yet."

"I think you should explain it to her. She needs you at a time like this."

"You didn't see her face how mortified she was. How afraid and hurt she was." I shivered at the image.

"All the more reason tho explain it to her." He replied.

"Ok I'll do it. I'll talk to her." I was really nervous about this.

"Alice, Bella, you two can come up now." Carlisle called.

Alice's POV

(starts a few minutes after Edward leaves his house.)

Victoria was standing there in the forest. She was waiting for someone, I couldn't tell who. Then I saw a car pull into a driveway. It was Charlie. He got out of the cruiser and he walked up to the front door and unlocked it. When he went in Victoria got into his cruiser and drove away.

After Charlie shut the front door he turned around and Victoria was standing right there.

"Who are you." Charlie's voice was strong but his eyes were full of fear. Victoria just laughed at him. "Look," he said. "If you want money, or the TV, or whatever just take it and get out."

"Oh, I don't want your money." She laughed menincingly. "I want your blood."

"MY WHAT?" Carlie's voice was alarmed.

"You're blood it smells so good." She moved closer to him. "I can't wait till I get to taste it."

"Are you some kind of lunitic? Did I hurt anyone around you to that would make you want to get back at me?" He questioned. He seemed confused.

"No." she said while her eyes turned darker. "Your daughter's boyfriend did." Charlie's eyes widdened. "Now," she continued. "I'm going to get back at him by killing you and your daughter."

Charlie gasped. With that Victoria lunged at Charlie. She forced him to the ground breaking bones in his body. Then she bent down and put her mouth to his neck and sucked greedily. Charlie's face was contorted from shock and agony; it was pain full to look at.

"NOOOOO!" I yelled. I collasped on the ground. I started to sob tearlessly. OH MY GOODNESS! CHARLIE! I have to tell Edward.

"Alice?" said a concerned voice. Then I felt storng arms encircle my body. "What's wrong beautiful?" It was Jasper.

"Charlie!" I shrieked. "He's in trouble! I have to get to Bella's house!"

"No, you don't." Jasper's voice was so smooth and velvety. I loved him so much, but what was he talking about? Charlie was indanger.

"But Charlie he's going to be killed by Victoria." I jissed when I said her name. Oh Gosh, did I hate her. " I have to..." He interupted me before I finished.

"Stay here and relax."

"I can't Charlie is all alone."

"Don't worry...."

I inturpted him. "How can I not worr.."

"Shh..Shh.." He comforted. "Edward left five minutes ago to go over to Bella's house. He wanted to make her some lunch."

"Why didn't you tell me sooner?" Now I was mad. He should have told me! I freaked out for nothing!

"I tried," he sighed. "You wouldn't let me finish my sentences."

"Sorry, I smiled sheepishly. "I was just afraid for Charlie and how Bella would take it."

"It's ok," he said, and he came over putting his hands on my face and he kissed my lips. An electric shock went through my body. I loved that feeling. He pulled me back and hugged me. "Everything will be ok."

We both walked to the living room and sat on the couch. He out his arms around my body. I was relaxed, well for a little while.

"I think I should go hunting now. Edward is going to bring Bella back. I can't mess up like I did when it was her birthday." Jasper said. He was so compassionate. I loved him so much.

"Ok, I'll be here relaxing," I smiled. Within the blink of an eye he was gone and I was by myself. I heard Edward's volvo pull into the driveway. Hmm. He wasn't supposed to be here this early.

I ran to the front door to meet him and Bella. I had to let Edward read my mind and hear the news. When Edward opened the door It was just him. His face was a little painicky.

"You have to get to bella's house," I said as soon as he got in the door. "Victoria is going to kill Charlie." He looked down at the floor. "Oh..MY...What.." There was blood all over his shirt and hands. "Be glad Jasper isn't here." Jasper would've attacked Edward.

"Victoria," he growled when he said her name, "framed me. She splashed Charlie's blood on me and left right before Bella got home." His voice was pained and his eyes flashed with anger, pain, and hurt. "I couldn't explain anything to Bella." He choked. " all she said was 'you killed him, you killed Charlie.' Then she took off running into the forest."

Holy Crap! Poor Charlie, Poor Bella, OH MY GoODNESS BELLA! She's all alone in the forest and Victoria is after her. "I'll go and talk to her. If Victoria is on the lose Then she's not safe at all." I wasn't going to leave Bella alone in the forest and thinking Edward was a murderer.

"Thank you Alice." He sighed a sigh of relief.

"No problem but please change you're clothes." That smell of blood was starting to drive me crazy. I ran out the front door and into the forest.

I saw Bella in a clearing and I slowed down. The wind from my running made the bushes move. Bella turned, her face was in fear. I quickly walked out and her face relaxed. There were red circles around her eyes from crying.

"Bella!" I exclaimed. "Thank goodness I found you." I ran up to her and hugged her lightly. "Bella I'm so sorry about what happened to Charlie." She lokked down at the ground still crying.

"I .... can't ..believe..he ..would..do..that..to..Charlie." Her voice broke in between words. Oh-No she tought Edward killed Charlie.

"Bella, Bella, you need to listen to me." I kept my voice light and kind. "Edward was framed." she stopped crying but she looked up and her face was confussed.

"What do you mean by framed. Because I was there...no one else was there."

"Actually Bella..before you got there.." I stopped.I saw something, it was not in the forest but in my head.

I was somewhere in a forest or near a river. I could hear water and I could see alot of trees. I saw a figure floating in the air. It had a pistol and it fired there rounds at something. I couldn't see what it was firing at. I heard the figure talking to a girl. I moved closer I saw that the figure was Victoria and the girl was Bella! Victoria lunged at something. Oh why couldn't I see what it was. was grasping her hands around it. It changed into something else. Jacob Black? He said he loved Bella? Well I did know that... Victoria dropped Jacob. She moved closer to Bella. Bella started to scream. I watched in horror. I was helpless. Just then Edward tackled Victoria to the ground. They were wreastling and then Jasper and Emmett came over to help him. I saw myself and Rosalie get Bella off the ground and then we left and ran with Bella. I saw Emmett and Jasper wreastling Victoria holding her too a tree. I looked around to see if I could find Edward. I saw him there. He was lying on the ground bleeding. rVictoria was growling loudly. Then someone walked out into the clearing...No it couldn't be.... could it??? But how??

I suddenly came out of my vision. "We need to talk somewhere else," I said. When I said that Bella's face dropped.

"Umm ok..Where." I didn't want to take her back to my house but I to talkto Carlisle.

"Would you mind if we went to my house I need to talk to Carlisle right away."

"I... I guess it's ok." With that I placed her on my back and started running. I ran to the house and throught the front door. I was greated by Jasper.

"Alice,You weren't supposed to bring her here." said Jasper.

"What would it of mattered if I did. WE have to talk to Carlisle right now. It's important. I had a vision."

"He's talking to Edward right now....hey did you teel Bella the whole story." He asked.

"No," I said shyly. "I sorta had a vision while I was talking to her."

"Alice, Bella, you two may come up now." Carlisle called from his office
