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.

ACT V SCENE V PART I
Jacob's body shock violently. His shoulders hunched and his neck tensed. He back up, away from Isabella, and pushed his back up against the wall. Isabella did not retreat from his angry form, she couldn't. She was either in shock or for some reason felt like she could help him. She stood up slowly, her tears drying up, her face shiny and red. She curled her fingers tightly, and then took a step forward, her legs shaking nervously.
"Jacob?" She whispered.
"Stay Back!" He yelled, his eyes closed. He breathed in and out, trying to relax. His shoulders relaxed slightly.
"Jacob, I need you to take me to his body." Her voice was calm and defensive. She took another deliberate step. Jacob's eyes flashed open and his back tensed. His anger flared and he walked forward, lifting her by the shoulders so that they were eye to eye. Bella made a noise of fear mixed with pain.
"How could you ask me that? He's dead. He's dead. He's DEAD!" He shoved her, throwing her to the floor. He groaned and then came forward again. Bella gasped and started to back up with her hands, but he caught her again, this time he came down to her. "You don't love him! He has no heart. No soul. He was dead to begin with. He raped your mind and caused you to have feelings for him that didn't exist! They are reptiles! Cold blooded snakes!" Tears poured down her cheeks like rain and she released a cry of despair.
"Let go of me." She cried. Isabella tried to wiggle out his grasp, but it only made him tighten his fingers. The pain made her flinch and moan.
"No. I don't think I will. Ever." His face was so close to hers, that she could feel his hot breath. "You belong with me, Isabella Swan. We will be together." Isabella's face grew with confidence as she spoke.
"My name is Isabella Cullen." She said, raising her hand and slapping him across the face. Jacobs face shrunk for the slightest of moments, and then he growled before he slammed his mouth against hers. She tried to move herself away from him, but his hand kept her face against his. She groaned, and for some reason he was aroused by this.
Isabella' eyes came together and she bit his tongue. Jacob pulled away with a moan of pain and his eyes met hers. He growled again and threw her hard. His strength was magnificent and she flew into the far stone wall shoulder first. Isabella fell to the ground as Jacob lost control of himself. He was coming at her as he shifted.
"If we tell her father, then he will know what to do next." Carlisle stood facing his "children". They were all there minus two.
"What if he suspects something?" Jasper asked calmly from where he stood next to Alice, who was leaning forward her seat, already contemplating what was going to happen with their plan.
"Then we kill him and make up another plan. It would be like killing two birds with one stone." Emmett said. He had a wicked lovely grin on his face. Rosalie smiled. She turned and looked at Alice.
"What do you see happening?"
"He will lead us to Jacob. I see it." She said after opening her eyes and laying her golden eyes on her family.
"Carlisle and I will go to Mr. Swan. He will listen to us." Esme said. Carlisle nodded confidently. Alice's nod was more energetic.
"We'll wait outside, ready to follow him where ever he goes." Alice chirped. "Ready?" She asked, looking at everyone's powerful eyes. They all nodded in unison.
"Now it's time for the real party to begin." Emmett growled.
Carlisle held his wife's hand as the two of them made their way up the walk and towards Isabella's father's home. Esme took in a confiding breath and nodded when Carlisle looked down at her. He kissed her ear softly and then raised his hand to the door, knocking patiently yet hard. A couple of silent moments passed before the door opened. An older woman stood there in her maid uniform. Her graying hair tied up in a tight bun at the nape of her neck. She looks the two of them over for a moment and then nodded.
"My name is Carlisle Cullen, this is my wife Esme. " Esme nodded with a smile. " I was wondering if Charlie Swan was present?"
The maid gave them another look, and Carlisle shifted his head and smiled warmly at her. She did a double take, but let them in none the less. When they entered the front hall, Charlie stood in the doorway to the kitchens, a drink in his hand. When he saw who had come knocking, he walked forward and stood to face them.
"Where is my daughter?" His voice was angry. Carlisle smirked, before he lowered his head and looked Mr. Swan straight in the eyes. His gaze bore down inside his body.
"I have something to say to you first." Carlisle said stubbornly.
"Why don't you sit down?" Esme said, smiling carefully at Isabella's father. Her eyes were warm with butter and they melted Charlie. He opened his mouth for a second and then nodded at her. Esme's answering smile was quite persuasive.
Esme and Carlisle followed the older man into the sitting area, only sitting down themselves once he had taken his feet off the ground. Mr. Swan did not offer them any drinks. He either forgot his manners or was trying to look in control.
"You are a good man, Mr. Swan. You have a good reputation in this city because of that." Carlisle began. Charlie became skeptical. "I know how much you love your daughter, only wanting what is best for her."
"Where is she?" Charlie asked again, but not in anger. In concern. Carlisle acted as if he didn't hear him.
"Jacob Black would not have made her happy. I think you have realized this. Maybe you thought that this would change, or she would find her mate within Mr. Black. But it wouldn't work."
"Why are you speaking in past tense?" Charlie's voice was almost a whisper.
"Because there is no way she could marry Jacob Black now." Esme's voice was almost sympathetic.
"Because she has married our Edward."
"What!?" Charlie stormed, standing up. Esme and Carlisle stood as well.
"She loves him, Mr. Swan."
"To hell!" Charlie answered. "Where is she!?"
"Please be calm, sir. In front of my lady." Carlisle said, placing his hand on Esme's lower back. Charlie looked at Carlisle and then glanced at Esme. He was angry, but he lowered his voice when he spoke again.
"Tell me please."
"I cannot." Carlisle whispered. Charlie let in a loud breath through his nose.
"Not that I do not want to, for I believe that you would treat her well, I know that for sure." Carlisle raised his other hand to face Mr. Swan.
"We do not know where she is. You see, your Jacob Black found the two of them and has taken them. We have reason to believe that our son is badly hurt or dead, and that your daughter is being held captive." Said Esme.
"Captive." Charlie said.
"Yes, we also have our reasons to know that she is not safe with Mr. Black. You see, he was quite angry with her when he took her." Esme was sympathetic, which made Charlie close to believing. Esme knew that she changed their plan for a reason. It would work, because it was the truth. Instead of Charlie leaving to Jacob in anger, he will be concerned only for his daughter's well being.
"We can and will take care of your daughter. She is our daughter as well now. But we want her safe, and we need your help." Carlisle said. He walked forward and placed his hand on Charlie's shoulder.
"How did you know that he was angry?"
"Our other children, Alice and Jasper, were with them. Thank the Lord that they got away, for they would have shot them as well."
Charlie grimaced at the thought of guns being involved.
"We know that you are aware or Jacob's location." Esme smiled with her lips but not with her eyes.
"I'll take you, Mr. Cullen." Charlie said, leaving the room to grab his cloak.
Alice, Jasper, Emmett, and Rosalie did not let their presence known as Charlie left with their parents. They had heard everything that went on. They did follow from a distance, only enough to make out their forms.
They walked at a human pace until Mr. Swan led his followers into a carriage, leaving them behind. They ran with them, just out of eye sight. They came to the beach and down through the outskirts of the city. Alice tilted her head a bit as she closed her eyes. She stopped. Her siblings stopped with her.
"Someone is waiting for us." She said before running into the trees in the opposite direction of her parents. They came to a man. He stood as if he had only just gotten there. He nodded at them. But they did not come close to each other. They were about 5 yards apart.
"You're parents are going in the wrong direction. They will not find Jacob there. I know where he is, and I will take you to him. To Isabella."
