After about an hour of staring at my ceiling I realized I couldn’t sleep. One glance at the clock told me it was only 12:47. I quietly went to the hall closet and pulled out an old blanket while being careful to not wake Charlie. Then I heading downstairs, grabbed a glass of milk from the kitchen, and headed out into the backyard. I put the blanket in a spot that was lit up from the moon and lay down being careful not to spill the milk. I was staring up at the moon when I heard the leaves rustling in the woods. I froze.
“Bella?” I looked up at the sound of my voice and saw Jacob standing in the middle of my yard. “What are you doing out here?” He came over to sit down next to me.
“I couldn’t sleep.” I said as I sat up, “What are you doing here? You do know that you don’t have to protect me anymore, Victoria’s dead”
“Yea, I know. I couldn’t sleep either. I was going for a run in the woods and I guess I ended up here. Weird.”
“Yea, weird,” I said sarcastically. He leaned over and pulled me against his side. It wasn’t until I felt his abnormally hot skin that I realized I had been cold. I yawned. The milk and the heat were making me really tired. I put my head against his bare shoulder and closed my eyes.
“Bella, Bella.” I opened my eyes to see him staring at me. I looked around the yard to find that it was become brighter.
I yawned, “Oh, sorry, I must have fallen asleep. How long was I out?” I had barely gotten the sentence out before another yawn escaped.
“Only a few hours, I didn’t want to wake you up, but I need to leave and Charlie will be up soon.” He wrapped his arms around me and picked me up. “You look like you won’t make it upstairs.” He was right. I fell asleep halfway to my room.
I was in my room, but I could hear them talking. “We can’t tell Edward. He will get mad at me for checking up on her, and who knows what he would do if he found out. It would devastate him.” Alice told Esme and Carlisle. They were sitting around the small and otherwise unused kitchen table. Emmett and Rosalie were sitting on the large swing in the backyard. If they could cry they would be. We all would be. Even though we had left her, we all thought we would return to Forks one day. We all loved her and already were thinking of her as our sister and now she was gone. Ever since Alice had the vision, I had been feeling guilty. It was my fault that we came here. If I hadn’t lost control that day last year, we would never have had to leave. If we had stayed there we could have protected her, we wouldn’t have let anything happen to her.
I couldn’t believe it. I just couldn’t believe it. Bella was dead. My sister was dead. Even though I didn’t like that she was going to become one of us doesn’t mean I didn’t think of her as family. I guess I had always known she would become one of us and had acted rudely toward her in the past thinking I could change her mind, but now…now she was…dead. I buried my face into Emmett’s chest as the sobs overcame me.
A few hours later
I left Emmett’s side and went out into the woods; I needed to take a walk. After I had gone a few miles I decided to call Edward. I didn’t think it was fair that he didn’t know. I didn’t understand why he couldn’t know. I mean what’s he going to do? Run away? He’s already done that. Besides he left her, so he must not love her anymore. I pulled out my phone and dialed his number. There was no answer. I called again, and still no answer. Finally on the third call he answered.
