“Alice?” I asked, as Charlie left the room.

“Bella!” she squealed.

“Ouch! Alice, my ears!” I moaned into the phone.

“Oh, sorry Bella. I just wanted to make sure that you were all right.”

“Of course I am, Alice. Why wouldn’t I be?”

“Well, I can’t see the werewolves in my visions. It gets all hazy. You were at your house, and then it got all blurry. Who was it?” Alice asked curiously.


“Bella?” she asked slowly.

“Yes, Alice?”

“I…don’t like it…when…you see him without…someone around…to know… that you are all right. Do you know what I mean, Bella?”


“I can’t see you when you’re around them, and I get nervous with me not being able to see you. I need someone to be there when you two are around each other, just so I know that he doesn’t hurt you. Understand?”

“Yes, Alice, I do. But, that doesn’t mean that I will follow your advice.”

“Bella…” I hung up on her. I was too tired to argue. I didn’t want to deal with any more of anything.

I landed onto my bed with a graceful whooshing noise. I didn’t bother to get under the covers, I just shut my eyes and soon enough, sleep found me.

In the morning, I went downstairs and asked Charlie to give me a ride to school.

“Why?” he asked, his mouth full of cereal.

“I want to walk home from school today. If that’s all right,” I added sheepishly.

“If you want, Bells. I guess I don’t have a problem with it.”

Charlie started cleaning up his dishes. When he was finished, we walked outside to his cruiser. Charlie asked me what electives I was taking, but that conversation only lasted about a minute long.

When we finally made it to Forks High School, I said a quick goodbye to Charlie and hopped out of the cruiser, ignoring the glances that were directed towards me.

“’Bye Dad,” I said, closing the door with a loud smack.

The school day went by normally. Alice forgave me for hanging up on her, and she offered me a ride home again. I declined saying that I was going to walk home.

“That’s a great idea, Bella,” Alice began. “You need the fresh air. It will do you good.”

At the end of the day, I dashed out and looked up at the sky. Clouds were covering the whole sky. I sighed, but started walking. If it rained, I thought, it rained. There was nothing I could do about that.

I pulled the hood of my rain jacket over my head and started buttoning up the jacket.

“Ah!” I screamed as I hit a crack in the sidewalk and toppled over hitting my head hard on the sidewalk.

I moaned softly and tried to sit up. I crawled over to the brick wall and sat up against it.

“Bella?” an amazing, familiar voice said from above me.

I slowly lifted my head back, closing my eyes at the savory voice. I inhaled quickly. Then, ever so slowly, I opened my eyes. A small smile spread across my face.

“Hey,” I said shyly. “What’re you doing here?”

“Just came to see you,” he answered. He reached down, and placed his hands on either side of my face. Then, carefully, he bent his head down and placed his lips on mine. And, I let him…

“Wait!” I said, pushing his face away from mine. I jumped up, turned around to face him, and my eyes got large. “You’re back?” I asked in disbelieve.


“No,” I moaned, shaking my head from side to side. “Why?”

“I thought you would be happy to see me…” he trailed off as if remembering something. “Oh, that’s right. You have the werewolf now, don’t you?”

I couldn’t think of anything to say. I just stood there, staring at him like an idiot.

“You shouldn’t have come,” I said, when my voice finally returned to me.

“I know, but could you honestly expect me to move on. I came back for you. I wanted you to runaway with me.”

“Runaway?” I asked, a slight smile forming at my lips. He nodded, beaming at me. I nodded, as he hopped down from the ledge and came over to give me a kiss.

Edwards POV

“Runaway?” She sounded so distant, but yet I could see a smile at her lips. It made me smile largely at her, my eyes lighting up. I couldn’t stand being far from her again. I leapt off the brick wall and closed the distance between us.

My lips hit hers hard and I was home. She did not even try and pull away; instead, she wrapped her tiny arms around my neck. I took that as an invitation and wrapped my arms around her waist and she arched her back.

I was finally home.

After all those months away from her. I could not even remember what had forced me to leave her in the first place. I loved her, and I just left her in the woods. I would never forgive myself.

She pushed away slightly, and looked in my eyes. We stood there like that for awhile. Then, she kissed me once more.

“You were serious then?” she asked. “About the whole running away with you thing?”

I nodded smiling slightly. “If that’s what you want…”

“I’d do anything for you!” she squealed, leaping into my arms. “Anything with you. Come on, let’s go.”
