As I walked along the beach I felt a presence, almost like someone was watching me. I took a quick look around but saw nothing unusual. I had come here almost every day for the past few months, so if anyone would know if something was out of place it’d be me. I shrugged to myself and kept walking I had to keep myself busy, no matter what. I just can’t have any time to think. It hurts too much. I turned around and started heading back the other way. After walking another mile I saw something flash out of the corner of my left eye. I turned towards it in enough time to see it disappear behind a tree, but it had been enough time because I immediately identified what it was. It was too fast and too pale to be anything but vampire, and the color of the long wild hair told me exactly who it was. I should have just ignored it and kept going, maybe it was a figment of my imagination, maybe I was becoming crazy like Embry said, and maybe I should go to a padded room. I could almost see myself sitting on the floor, rocking back and fourth and mumbling to myself. No, I had seen this, I’m not going crazy, ok, maybe a little, but who could blame me. I must be the only girl to ever exist who fell in love with a vampire who thirsts for my blood and whose best friends are a pack of werewolves. I stared at the tree she disappeared behind and waited for her to come out. I would let her get me, let her kill me, let her change me, it didn’t matter anymore. It would hurt Jacob and Charlie as well as the rest of the pack, but I just didn’t care anymore, I didn’t have enough strength to care. Suddenly she came out from behind the tree and stared at me with a confused look on her face. As she took a step toward me I knew my life was about to end.
“Get out of there, it’s not safe!” He screamed in my head. I took a step toward her, knowing that when I did I would hear his voice again. Edward’s voice. It didn’t hurt to say his name now that I knew I only had a few minutes left. “Are you crazy? What are you doing?” I smiled and took another step. She started backing away just as I saw something fly over me and land on the ground in front of Victoria. I screamed as I realized what, or should I say who, had jumped over me. “What is he doing here?” Edward snarled in my head.
“Bella get back!” I heard from behind. I turned in enough time to see a wolf appear in the spot Sam had just been. Embry ran over to me and half dragged me back to my truck. He threw me into the passenger side and climbed into the driver’s seat.
“Keys, where are the keys?” He asked as I handed them to him, my hand shaking uncontrollably. “Oh, crap!” he said as he hit the steering wheel causing it to shake. “Don’t move, ill be right back.” He jumped out of the truck and disappeared into the trees. A moment later he reappeared and ran off toward the beach. That’s when I saw them. About eight more vampires had joined Victoria. They were outnumbered.
“Where is the rest of the pack? These three won’t be able to handle that many.” Edward screamed. I had never heard him so angry. “They won’t be able to stop them, she could get you.” That’s when it hit me. The vampires were all here for me, if I go out there she can kill me and it’ll be over. Nobody else has to die. It was simple. i'd lose my life to save the lives of those i love. It wasn't fair that they were risking their lives for me. “NO! You can not think that! If you go out there they will still kill the pack. You won’t be saving anyone.” He was now growling at me, "If any of them were to get hurt...or...worse..." I shuddered as I started to cry.“ I won't be able to move on with my life. I need them."By now the tears were falling rapidly down my face. "I can’t just sit here, I have to do something.” I said as I unbuckled my seatbelt, and reached for the door handle. "I love you Edward, I'll always love you." I opened the door and stepped out. As soon as I did I felt the wind on my back and saw everyone on the beach snap their heads up to look at me. My breath caught in my throat as I realized what was about to happen.
