What will happen? I don't know! Read for yourself! Okay, I have 1 review for every 51.967741935483870967741935483871 reads. Aka: 1 review for every 52 reads. That is actuallly kind of depressing. I mean, is the story that horrid? Are all of you nice reviewers lying to me? Or do you just not want to take 5 seconds to tell me about my story. For serious, I don't care if you write a review telling me what colour socks you are wearing or what flavour cookie you are eating. Or if you perfer tacos to lemon squares. I just want reviews. Okay, we all know I'm bad with the updating. You want to know how bad? I have NO idea whats going on in my story right now. I know, that's sad. But all of my current efforts to re-focus go out to the peeps who are tryin to get me re-motivated. Thanks guys! I love you!I <3 My READERS!!!!!


Notes:
So what happens when Bella meets Edward again and after 105 years, all her sadness has had time to boil and turn into anger? I guess we'll find out! Okay, beloved readers and reviewers, this is what is called a FANfiction. Obviousally, besides the fact that I can't spell, that means that I am not the super amazing-a-licious, fantabulous, Stephenie Meyer. That means that I don't own Twilight or any Twilight related stuffs...sadly....I wish I owned Edward! Who doesn't? (Besides Team Jacob scum!!!!!)

Bella’s Point of View:

What was wrong with him? What was with the twenty questions? We walked everywhere and we had picked out tons of stuff. I helped Alice pick out clothes for her more than I did for me. We made Edward hold almost all of our bags. He deserved the torture. I was only afraid I would slip up with what I said and he would figure me out.

“Oh! Do you think Rachel would like this dress?” Alice asked me. We had just passed by some of the wedding dresses. The dress was white, strapless, floor-length, and it was silky and poofed at the bottom. It had sparkles on the bottom that were in little bunches and at the top of the dress above the breast line. It was gorgeous and perfect for Rachel.

“I think so. I like it. It is really pretty. Should I call her to come here? Or should we just get it and show her later?”

Alice froze. To the unknowing eye, she was just that, frozen. To Edward and I, she was having a vision. Alice snapped out of the vision. “No, she’ll love it! We’ll get it now, and the little crown and pink stilettos with the diamonds in them. She is going to love us!”

“Great! She is going to look beautiful!” Especially if Alice did her makeup and stuff.

“I love wedding planning! What colour schemes should we have? And should we release doves? What about white tigers? Should she ride up to the altar on a white tiger? Oh, that would be so pretty!”

“Alice, is that even legal? Besides, this is her wedding; she should be able to make the decisions, too. Especially if they involve live animals!”

“Will she want a summer wedding, or a spring wedding, or maybe if it was on Valentine’s Day! Indoors or outdoors? Oh! I think a bit of silver and pink would be so pretty!” Alice went right on talking all the way back to the house.

“Rachel! Come here!” I called. Aiden came down the stairs.

“She isn’t here. Dylan took her out somewhere.”

“But, we picked out a wedding dress! And we need her here for wedding plans! Like, what colour scheme will we use? Alice and I thought silver and pink would look really, really pretty.”

“I think it would look nice, too.” Victoria said, coming down the stairs. “You know how particular Chi-chi is about things like her appearance. Besides, as a blonde, pink will look marvelous with silver on her.”

“Yes, that was what Alice and I were thinking. Besides, isn’t her ring silver with pink?”

“I think so.” Kaylee said, coming down the stairs with Angel.

“Can I see the dress?” Aiden asked.

“Not until Chi-chi and Dylan get home. She should see it first. It’s only fair, besides, you seem a bit too excited to see a dress.” I said, giggling.

All of a sudden, Alice was unzipping the dress bag and showing it to him. “Aiden! I can’t believe you!” I hit him on the head. So did Victoria and Kaylee. “I told you that for a reason! Chi-chi is the one getting married! Not you! You will apologize to Alice and to Chi-chi when she gets home! And also you have to go shopping with her next time she goes, so you can carry all her bags!”

“But…” he started.

“Exactly. Now, apologize.”

“I’m sorry, Mrs. Alice. I know better than to use my mind control powers.”

She giggled. “That’s okay, you’ll pay for it.”

“Wait! Why can Alice see you in visions now?” Edward asked. “I still can’t read anybody’s thoughts!”

“Well, I trust Alice, so I let my family back in her visions. You, I don’t trust, so, you can’t read our minds or your family. I like them and they can think of that as a gift from our family to theirs.” I retorted.

“Wow. Princess, what I said before still holds true. You can’t keep it in.” Angel said to me. God, I really wish he would stop telling me that. I get it! I could heal myself well enough!

“I get it! I’ll be fine with a partial healing! I’ll be fine! That’s what I have a family for! My love and support and friendship!”

“Be that as it may, you will only get worse! This only made you worse! You’ll eventually be numb again!”

“I’d rather be numb than be able to feel all of my pain! When did you have your family leave you and the family that stayed, try to get you to move all over the country and put you in mental institutions because you were catatonic and all you could feel was the pain. Then, you found somebody who made the pain go away for a while and then, he tried to kill you and forced you to leave the area! I would much rather have numbness than all of that again! And, when all of that happens to you, and then it comes back to bit you, than you can tell me I need to be healed! But, until that time, leave me and my healing problems alone!” with that, I ran out the door and climbed my favorite tree.

Alice ’s point of view:

“I’d rather be numb than be able to feel all of my pain! When did you have your family leave you and the family that stayed, try to get you to move all over the country and put you in mental institutions because you were catatonic and all you could feel was the pain. Then, you found somebody who made the pain go away for a while and then, he tried to kill you and forced you to leave the area! I would much rather have numbness than all of that again! And, when all of that happens to you, and then it comes back to bit you, than you can tell me I need to be healed! But, until that time, leave me and my healing problems alone!” she ran out the door.

“Edward, you head on home. I have to talk to them here. Don’t you dare listen!”

“Alright. I can’t listen anyway.”

“See you later.” I waited for him to leave before I started to talk. “Okay, you all know that I know the big secret. Now, that was really stupid to say, Angel. You know she is sensitive and I know you are just looking out for her best interest. I know that she is as close to you as brother and sister get, but right now, she needs space. Moving on, she is having a really hard coping with the fact that Edward is here. I’m going to go and talk to her, okay? Just wait for a while. I’ll keep you posted.” I went out the door and followed her to the meadow where I knew she would be.

“Hi, Alice. I’m sorry about blowing up back there. I just…”

“I know. I understand. I really need to know, though, do you still love him?”

“Oh, Alice, I don’t know! I do sometimes, but then, I don’t! It’s like I’m bi-polar with my love for him! What do I do?”

“Well, start by accepting his friendship. He really hates that he can’t be friends with you, because you won’t let him. He really is curious about you.”

“But, Alice that is what I am afraid of! That he will only be curious about me, so he’ll take my heart, and when he’s done, he’ll mangle it up and throw it on the ground! That’s what he did in the forest! He told me he didn’t love me, never did!”

“Oh, you know he was lying!” she said, pulling he arms around me.

“Do I? Do you? What if that was a cover story so he would seem like a better person?”

“Do you really think that -if that was a story, which it’s not- that it makes him seem like a better person? I don’t think so; it makes him seem almost worse. Defiantly not better.”

“Alice, what if he just wants another ‘distraction’, as he so nicely called his many girlfriends before. One that he’ll date for a while, make her feel like the world, and then, when she’s not looking, take the heart that she willingly gave to him, and put it through a shredder. That’s what he did to me. He all but ate my heart. He loved it, cared for it, and then stabbed it and smashed it.” She said.

“But he was lying” Why didn’t she understand? “He loves you! He always has! And, his many girlfriends? Ha! Edward is a 212 year old-virgin! You are the only one for him!”

“No, Bella was the only one for him. I don’t know who that is anymore. I am Princess Sala Taylor. Not Isabella Marie Swan. She died a long time ago. 105 years to be exact.”

“Fine. You are being very uncooperative, but, fine. Let him be friends with Princess Sala Taylor. But, be his friend. I hate seeing you this way. I want my sister and best friend back. Even if she has a fake name, because whether you like it or not, you are almost just like Bella. The only noticeable differences are your appearance, and you are a little mean to Edward, who deserves every bit of it. I’ll leave you to your thoughts now. But, please, try if not for your benefit, for mine and my family’s and for your family’s benefit. We all love you. We all want your happiness. I’ll see you tomorrow.” I jumped out of the tree and ran home.

“What was that about?” Edward asked me when I came in the house.

“Oh, wedding plans….” I said, still distracted by my conversation with Bella.

“Hmmm….I’m going out, okay. Call me if you need me.”

“Yeah, okay. Sure.” How was I going to convince her of the truth? I’ll see her tomorrow at school. She couldn’t avoid me there, could she?

* * *

Bella’s point of view:

“I’ll see you tomorrow.” Alice jumped out of the tree and started to run. I started to ponder my options. Suddenly, an option was presented to me. I quickly called Aiden.

“Hello?”

“Aiden. I need you to do me a huge favor.”

“Sure. What is it?”

“I need you and Victoria to switch places with me.”

“What do you mean?” God, he was slow!

“At school. I need you and Victoria and you to enroll as students. We can pretend that you are distant relatives that just flew in from Kentucky. I can make you a bit more tan and curl your hair and whatever else you want done. But, please?”

“Princess. Come home. This is a decision that needs to be made by the family. Not you and I with Victoria’s input.”

“Fine. I’m in my tree. I’ll be there in five.” I hoped out of the tree and landed on Edward. God, how did that happen? “I am so sorry! I didn’t see you! Are you okay?” I suddenly felt really bad for hurting him. Maybe I would take Alice’s advice and be friends with him.

“It’s okay. No blood, no foul. It takes a lot more than that to hurt me.”

“I still feel bad.”

“That’s okay. I didn’t notice you until you jumped on me.”

“Sorry.” I ducked my head.

“Hey, what were you doing out here all by yourself anyway?”

“Baking cookies.”

“Sarcasm noted.”

“Well, what did it look like I was doing? Oh, wait, you caught me. I was giving birth to baby whales.”

“Wow. We’re just full of sarcasm, aren’t we?”

I’m full of sarcasm? Never mind. I’ve got to go home now.”

“Wait. I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be rude.”

“Well, you’ve certainly been doing that lately, haven’t you? Oh well, apology accepted. But, I really have to go. I was expected a while ago.”

“Oh, okay. Well, I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“Sure.” Maybe, most likely not. I ran home.

“There you are. I was worried.”

“Thanks, Victoria. Yeah, as I was jumping out of the tree, I landed on Edward.” Everybody started to chuckle. “Well, that started a conversation about my sarcasm, so I am just a little late.”

“You are kind of sarcastic.” Angel said. I looked at him. “Iz. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have interfered. You should be able to make decisions on your own.”

“No, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have blown up on you like that. It’s just hard, you know? I know that you were only trying to look out for me. I’m sorry.”

“Awww! Group hug!” Dylan said, walking in the door with Rachel.

“Rachel! You are home! Alice wanted to show you the dress and stuff! Oh, I need to call her!” Just then, Alice walked in the door.

“Yay! You are home! Now, look at the dress I got!” Rachel oohed and ahhed over it like Alice expected.

“It is beautiful! I never would have found it myself! Thank you so much!”

“Don’t thank me. This was all-“

“You.” I cut her off. “You found it, and picked everything else out. You even planned her whole wedding out in your head!”

“Ooh! Really? Let me see everything!” Rachel exclaimed. She was so excited. They really loved each other.

“Well, because I’m a psychic, I only saw it in my head. It is beautiful and everything goes over perfectly!”

“Okay then. Let’s start planning!” Rachel said.
