I shook my head, clearing the images before they had time to properly form. Edward was still stalking my thoughts, had been ever since I said I was leaving. I could almost feel him poking and prodding every time I was around him. My knew found purpose had made me confident, and even Edward Cullen didn't scare me. Nothing scared me, nothing save what'd I seen in Bella's mind. Again, I guarded my thoughts.
I had to get away. What was taking Jacob so long? I heard footsteps behind me. Turning over my shoulder I saw Alice. She plopped down gracefully next to me. She, like Edward, knew something was up. With her little power she should have had no problem discerning what I was planning, but she'd let slip a weakness her visions had. I was glad Jacob was accompanying me, but for more than one reason.
“You're hiding something from me,” accused Alice. I gifted her with a smile, but I didn't look at her. I stared at the tree line, waiting for Jacob to break through into the meadow. Alice gave me an exaggerated sigh. I had to laugh.
“Why would you think that?” I finally turned to look at her. She was smiling, but her eyes were sad. I returned the smile, with much more enthusiasm than I actually felt. “Oh Alice you worry too much.”
“You should stay. You could be happy here.” She was whispering. I think she knew that there was no use. Edward and Bella had ambushed me right after I announced I was leaving. They'd pleaded and yelled. They said they were worried about Ambrosi, that he could hunt me down. I assured them I'd be safe with Jacob. Neither seemed to take that too well.
“I have things to take care of Alice,” I said softly.
“Things you won't tell us about?” she asked. Then she lowered her voice, “Or can't tell us?” I smiled a slow, sad smile and stared at the forest. Silently, I answered her question. We sat there on the porch, for what I hoped wouldn't be the last time. Jacob broke the trees then, in human form, but running toward the house.
I stood as I said, “Tell them I said goodbye.”
“You won't say it yourself?” she asked.
“I can't Alice. It would just be too hard.” I began to walk toward Jacob. He had slowed to a brisk walk and it didn't take me long to meet him. He held out his hand. As I grasped it I turned back to Alice and smiled. The sun was setting behind the big white house and I had to squint to make out the tiny girl on the porch.
“Don't worry,” I said with a wave. “I'll be back. I saw Bella's dress. I wouldn't miss that for the world.
