I couldn't laugh.

And dang it, I couldn't cry.

I wanted to cry for my little sister.

I wasn't sure I'd ever smile again.

Until this, Edward always had the chance of caving. We knew he was going to cave. He had been so close. We could've been a family again.

Why Bella? Why didn't you wait longer?

I sat on the couch, waiting for...nothing. Not waiting for anything.

Why did Rose do that? She called him!

But I couldn't be mad, I thought, sinking back into my stupor of staring at the floor.

Bella jumped.

I put my face in my hands. Had she known how much it would hurt all of us when she died?

How was Edward taking it? Oh, Rose.

And Esme? She had jumped. Now Bella did, but there wasn't a vampire to save her.

Rosalie was calling Alice, pacing the floor. At least she felt bad now. The voices were bouncing off of me like another language. Like there was no beginning or end to each sentence.

"Emmett?" Rosalie's voice wavered. I held my arms out, still zombie-like. She crashed into my lap and started sobbing dry sobs.

"Edward........going........to....the...............Volturi!" She sobbed and my throat constricted even tighter.

I was going to lose my brother too. No. I wouldn't allow something I could prevent from happening.

I stood up, feeling detached from my body.

"Emmett?" Rosalie whimpered, wide-eyed.

I probably looked empty. I was.

"He's not going to die!" I roared.

"Emmett," Rosalie pleaded, tugging on the arm I was flexing menacingly, " Emmett Alice is going to--"

"What can Alice to that I can't?!" I spun on her. "I'm not going to let my brother die! I'll fight every Volturi demon, he's not going to die!"

"Emmett!" Rosalie wailed.

"WHAT?!"

"Emmett, Alice has Bella. They're going to Italy to stop him. If he sees us, he would do something rash! The only chance we have is him seeing Bella alive!"

"She's alive?" Hope was rising and I tried to restrain it.

"Yes, a werewolf saved her, but Alice couldn't see it because she can't see werewolves..."

I turned and stepped out the door, and walked down the porch steps. I stood in the middle of the forest as it started to rain.

The rain washed down my face, letting me get as close as possible to crying the tears of joy that I needed to shed.

The sun broke out from behind the clouds and caused my skin to throw millions of rainbows that reflected off the rain, spiraling into the sky. Everything was alive with color as the water poured down my cheeks.

I looked up at the sky.

"I don't know if you can hear ones like me, but thank you."

Your welcome.

We could be a family again...if Bella got there in time.

I think Ive already lost you
I think youre already gone
I think Im finally scared now
You think Im weak - but I think youre wrong
I think youre already leaving
Feels like your hand is on the door
I thought this place was an empire
But now Im relaxed - I cant be sure

I think youre so mean - I think we should try
I think I could need - this in my life
I think Im just scared - I think too much
I know this is wrong its a problem Im dealing

If youre gone - maybe its time to go home
Theres an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If youre gone - baby you need to come home
Cuz theres a little bit of something me
In everything in you

I bet youre hard to get over
I bet the room just wont shine
I bet my hands I can stay here
I bet you need - more than you mind

I think youre so mean - I think we should try
I think I could need - this in my life
I think Im just scared - that I know too much
I cant relate and thats a problem Im feeling

If youre gone - maybe its time to go home
Theres an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If youre gone - baby you need to come home
Cuz theres a little bit of something me
In everything in you

I think youre so mean - I think we should try
I think I could need - this in my life
I think Im just scared - do I talk too much
I know this is wrong its a problem Im dealing

If youre gone - maybe its time to go home
Theres an awful lot of breathing room
But I can hardly move
If youre gone - baby you need to come home
Cuz theres a little bit of something me

In everything in you
