This is just a story that came to me as I was reading Eclipse. Do not be worried, for there are no spoilers what-so-ever... EXCEPT for one, but it doesn't mean anything important. If you haven't read Eclipse, you wont even notice it. And, if you have, you would have to have a keen eye to notice it. So, I'm just going to shut up and let you read it now. I hope it reminds you of your modern day love triangle, as well as your favorite Shakespearian tragedy.

Act V scene III part 2
Edward wrapped Isabella in the sheet from the bed and pulled her towards him. He leaned his face into her hair and breathed in the scent of her. Being here, alone, together, was perfect. They were made for each other, and nothing else would ever keep them apart. It was the feeling of belonging that seeped through his pores and crawled over him like insects. He could never and would never be with anyone except his Bella. This is how it is supposed to be. Love.
Bella slipped back into her undergarments and then turned, looking her husband in the eye.
"Must I put the dress back on?" She asked with a smile. Edward scooped her up in his arms and threw her on the bed, landing on top of her. He locked his arms around her waist.
"Well, I don't want you putting anything on quite yet, and when the time arises when we must leave, I am sure we can find something ladylike for you to wear." He grinned, his lips going up croaked. Isabella laughed and bent her head up to kiss him fully on the lips.
A while later, the wife of the household knocked silently at the door.
"Here is a dress from my younger days. I believe your wife is close to my height. These will fit I am sure." She smiled and passed the garments to Edward. Edward smiled at her.
"Thank you ma'am."
"Call me Emily."
"Thank you. There is nothing I can give you in return, but we are completely imbedded to you. I owe you my life for keeping my wife safe."
"It is my pleasure." She whispered before turning around.
Emily had packed a lunch for the couple, as well as Alice and Jasper who stood waiting out in the street. Isabella put on the dress, which was almost a perfect fit. It was tight around the bodice and showed a past of wealth. Clearly, Emily was hiding something. No corset, but beautiful gold linen and lace with a beaded cross on the back, showing more skin than Bella was used to. She felt like a whole new woman.
It was well on its way to twilight when Edward and Isabella emerged from the house. They met Jasper and Alice who waited patiently in the night. Isabella hugged her sister, as well as Jasper. No words were spoken, but they knew exactly what to do. Edward lifted his wife into the saddle, and with a grace that only a vampire could pull off, he was behind her within an instant. They set off at an easy pace, the destination or how long their trip would be was unknown.
They traveled on the dark road for until the moon was at the centre of the sky. Now Isabella was not tired, she had enough sleep. She sat straight, her back perfectly pressed back against the hard muscles of Edward's chest. His left hand was placed gently on her stomach, while his other hand held the reins loosely in his grip. Isabella leaned her head back and just watched the scenery as it passed. At random moments, Edward whispered words of love into her ear. This was paradise.
A man walked into their path. Isabella couldn't make out his face, but she saw him as he lifted his palm forward motioning them to stop. Edward's fingers gripped Isabella more tightly, but he stopped the horse. Alice and Jasper came up beside him.
"Did you see thing coming?" Edward whispered.
"Not when it was going to happen, no." Alice whispered back. Edward huffed and then his face went blank as he listened.
"He's an officer from London. He's supposed to do a check of the entire path from here to Kingsbury." Edward's voice was full of irritation.
"Nothing worth worrying about." Jasper said. His voice completely even. He grazed his lips along Alice's neck before sliding off the horse and making his way towards the officer. Isabella looked up at Edward, who smiled down assuring her with his eyes before he spoke.
"Jasper knows what he's doing. He is a soldier." He whispered in his ear. Isabella nodded. She tried to listen in on the conversation but all she could hear were faint words as they travelled with the wind that was beginning to pick up around them.
"Sister ... sick... traveling to see our mother... soldier..." and other faint words.
"Do they believe him?" Isabella asked.
"He doesn't know what to think, but he's going to let us go anyways." Edward whispered. Jasper came back a few minutes later. He looked up at Edward, who gave an almost uncatchable nod. Jasper smirked and then climbed up behind his wife. He nudged his horse forward, taking the lead. Edward and Isabella followed behind. As they passed the man, Edward pressed his hand against Isabella's cheek, hiding her face-that resembled her father's. Isabella tucked her face into her husband's collar. The officer looked up at them, his eyes narrowing slightly.
"Is this the sick one?" He asked.
"Yes sir." Edward said stiffly.
"She doesn't look too sick to me." He glanced curtly at Edward before roaming his eyes over Isabella's face.
"I am a doctor, sir. She has the fever." Edward said sadly. The officer immediately stepped back. He looked disgusted. Edward smiled to himself and then motioned the horse to proceed. Only an instant passed before someone came out of the trees.
"These people aren't who they say they are! STOP NOW!" The scream echoed through the darkness.
