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!!!!!
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:
We poured over wedding plans. Alice was over at our house constantly, or we were over at their house. Who knew there were two mansions in Forks? By the end of the week, half of the wedding was planned. It was going to be beautiful! We had picked out the dress and the tuxedo and they matched perfectly! We had a plain black suit, black shoes, and a white shirt, but the vest was the same shade of pink as the sash we added to the white dress and the flower matched the ones in her bouquet. We decided on the ‘no live animals rule’ and Alice decided that if she didn’t get to release doves, then she would bomb the church with pink. She described it in detail and Rachel loved it.
“Alice, you really are amazing!” Rachel gushed.
“She is. She will spend hours fixing you up for the wedding, you know.”
“Thanks, Rachel! I try! And I love make-overs! Oh, you are going to look fabulous!”
“Hey, Dylan. Come in here for a minute.” I called.
“Yo. What up?” he asked, coming in the room.
“You need to pick a best man, and we can’t do all the planning by ourselves!”
“Yes we can!” Rachel and Alice chorused together.
“Okay, scratch that. You need to pick a best man.”
“Ummm. I don’t know. Do you think Aiden or Angel would like it more?”
“Hmmmm. Probably….I don’t know, either. But, you need to pick somebody soon. That leads me to you, Rachel. Who do you want to be your Maid of Honor?”
“Oh, will you do it for me?”
“Really, you want it to be, me?”
“Well, yeah, I mean, why not? You are always there for all of us. You got us through the most difficult times of all. You are my older sister. Will you be my Maid of Honor?”
“Rachel, I am flattered. Of course I’ll do it!”
“Okay, now come here, we need to pick your dress!” Alice said.
“Alright. Hold on a second.” I said. “Can it be something….simple?”
“No. It can be a little less lavish than mine, but it can’t be simple. Or at least, not simple by your terms. Simple for you is jeans and a t-shirt.” Said Rachel. I guess I understood, she wanted her wedding to be, perfect.
“But,” said Alice, “It can be simple as in it just hangs to the floor. And, then the bridesmaids will have shorter dresses. And everybody will have the same type of shoes. And your bouquet, Rachel, will be pink roses with ice roses in them, which Dylan can make for us. Yours, Princess, will be fewer pink roses and fewer ice roses. And then Victoria and Kaylee will have the same amount of roses as you, but where the ice ones are on yours, there are going to be real ones for them.”
“Hey, ladies!” said Dylan, coming in the room.
“Hi, Dylan. Did you pick a best man yet?” I asked.
“Yeah. Angel is going to do that. Ummm, I was wondering if-“
“Emmett can be your other groomsman?” Alice cut him off.
“Why not?” I asked.
“Well, I didn’t know if you would have killed him if he was. I didn’t want any deaths on my wedding.” I knew he was making fun of me. The guys really got along well with Emmett. They were all pranksters.
“Shut-up. I wouldn’t have killed Emmett. I’m a little too afraid of Rosalie.”
“I was just checking. Besides, Kaylee could totally own Rosalie.”
“I wouldn’t be so sure about that, Dylan. You’ve never seen her at her worst. She almost killed Edward when he left Bella. It tore apart our family, and really pissed Rosalie off.” Said Alice.
“Really? Rosalie did that?” I was really surprised.
“Well, the entire family fell apart. We just recently got back together as a family.”
“That is so depressing” said Rachel.
“It’s even more depressing that Edward is so depressed. We really miss the old him.” So do I, Alice, the one who wouldn’t leave me. But, then again, did that Edward ever exist?
“Oh, it’s time for school. We got to go.”
“No, it’ll be sunny today. Until, lunch time, but what’s the point of going in?”
“Wait,” I said, “Wouldn’t it look suspicious if 10 people don’t show up from school. Five each from the same family?”
“No. But if you still think so, we’ll go in around lunch time because of an unexpected family emergency.”
“Okay, that should be okay, besides, these wedding plans are driving me crazy. I need to relax. And going to school does not count as relaxation. I need my i-pod and my tree.”
“Okay, we’ll be here. You can go out to your tree.” Said Rachel.
“Thanks. I’ll be back in maybe three hours. I might go hunting. If I do, I’ll call. I won’t be back for a while. Unless I’m hunting. I’ll probably be back around 5pm on Monday. See you.” I ran to my tree. I contemplated my next move. I did need to hunt, but I just had a bad feeling about hunting right now. “Maybe I’ll go later.” I said, thinking aloud.
“Go where later?” a voice asked me from behind. I turned to face Emmett.
“Emmett!” I said, “You almost killed me!”
“Sorry. Go where later?” he asked again.
“Hunting. I haven’t gone in a while. I think I might need it.”
“Oh. Well, neither have I. Come on. We’ll go together.”
“Okay. Besides, we need to bond. Dylan wants you to be his other groomsman, and I’m the maid of honor.” My phone started to ring then. “Hello?”
“It’s Alice. Are you going to tell him?”
“No. you weren’t supposed to know. Nobody was supposed to know! We were supposed to move when you showed up again! But, I mean, I really have missed all of you so much. Maybe I will. Oh, tell Chi-chi that I am going hunting and that I’m with Emmett. You might want to call Rosalie about it, though.”
“Okay. I will. And really-” She was cut off by Angel, who apparently had taken the phone from her.
“Telling Emmett will help heal you.”
“I thought that you had to hold a person’s hand to see what will heal them.” I said.
“Well, that day in the cafeteria, and every other time I even bumped you, really, I can see a lot of things and if you tell Emmett, it will help.”
“Okay. I will. I love you. Thank you. Tell Alice and Chi-chi I love them too. Bye!” I hung up the phone and put it in my pocket.
“Tell me what?” Emmett asked.
“Ummm…Well, Emmett, I have been keeping a secret from your family for a long time. Remember the day that I showed you my powers?”
“Yeah. I still hate that Aiden kid for making me sing and dance like a girl!”
“Don’t hate Aiden. He’s my family!”
“Yeah, well, I left one of my powers out.”
“Really? What was it?”
“And I didn’t need to know what your powers were and I already knew all of your names, and Victoria was lying and….Oh, Emmett! I am so sorry!” I was sobbing.
“What? What’s wrong? Are you okay?”
“No! All of this...it just…and finally seeing all of you again after all this time!” He still looked confused.
“Oh Emmett! My name is Isabella Marie Swan and I am the person you once called your little sister!”
“Look. I’ll show you. Stay there. I’ll be back in a second.” I ran behind a tree and changed myself so I looked like I did after my transformation. I stepped out from behind the tree and Emmett pulled me into a big bear hug.
“Bella! It really is you! Why didn’t you tell us? I missed you so much! We all did! Why didn’t you tell us?”
“Oh, Emmett, I missed you too! I couldn’t tell you! I was afraid! What would you have done if I walked into that cafeteria that day looking just like I do now, when I was supposed to be dear for 105 years? Besides, I like my power. It hurt, you know? Looking at my self in the mirror all the time. Knowing that maybe if Edward would see me now, he would take me back. He would accept me. He would love me…” I was sobbing again.
“Bella. He never stopped loving you. When we found out what he told you in the forest that day, we all almost killed him. We didn’t understand how you wouldn’t take him back if he went. He finally told us everything and we hated him for it.”
“Yeah. I’m pretty mad at him too. I never even got to say good-bye…you were my family…my best friends…he took all of that away and he lied to me. I just don’t know if I can trust him anymore.” I changed back to my “Princess” look and I turned to Emmett. “Emmett, you do realize that you can’t tell anybody about this and that the only people you can talk to about it are Alice and my family and only when there is nobody else around. I can’t risk anybody else finding out. Especially Edward. Okay?”
“Okay. I promise. But, we have got to catch up. Okay?”
“There’s not much to catch up on, but we can talk about all of that while we hunt.”
“Okay. Let’s go!” We ran off to hunt for the weekend.

Bella’s point of view:
“So, basically, you have been traveling with this coven of your for 105 years and then, when you found us in England, you moved here to our old mansion that you had bought. Right? Oh, and Victoria doesn’t care too much about avenging James anymore because she found Aiden. Right?”
“Yes to the first. Kind of to the second. She cared about avenging him. That’s why she was after me. She wanted to do things ‘mate for mate.’ That’s how it was fair in her mind. Now, when she found me, I asked her to kill me. So, naturally, she didn’t. Well, not until she found out why I wanted her to kill me. She decided that she was going to change me and that I was going to kill her. But, in the end she decided that we needed each other and so we became sisters. She let me be leader of the coven because she knew that I would have a greater resistance and that I would have a lot of powers. She also wanted to try to convert to animals. It was really hard for us at first, but we helped each other when mistakes were made and we got each other through everything. But, just so you know, my record is just as clean as Carlisle’s. I have never tasted human blood except for when I changed my family.”
“Wow. So, I can’t tell anybody, right?”
“Nobody. And you can’t talk to me like I’m Bella unless none of your family is around.”
“Except for Alice.”
“Except for Alice.” I confirmed.
“Hey, why did Alice get to know before me?”
“She wasn’t supposed to know. Nobody was supposed to know. That day in the cafeteria when Edward pissed me off so bad that I ran, Alice followed me to the girl’s bathroom, where I was talking about why I was so mad at Edward for leaving me and stuff, and she overheard and pieced things together. I didn’t really want anybody else to know, and besides, if you and I were off somewhere where we couldn’t be heard while I was going to tell you, don’t you think Rosalie would have tried to kill me?”
“I see what you are saying….She misses you, you know. Rosalie. She does. She’ll deny it until her heart starts to beat again, but she does. I can see it in her when somebody mentions you. She didn’t really hate you. She was just jealous. Jealous that you were a human, and that she wasn’t. Jealous because she thought that you were prettier that her.”
“Me? Prettier than Rosalie? You have got to be kidding me! Even if I made myself as beautiful as possible, even if I made myself look just like her, I could never be as pretty as Rosalie.”
“Well, she thought so. Wait-you smell that?” We had stopped for a while and were sitting in a tree, waiting.
“Smell what?” Then I smelled it to.
“Grizzly! And they just woke up! Yes! My favorite!”
“Emmett! You look like a little kid in a candy store!” I giggled.
“Well, if the candy tasted like irritable grizzly…” I laughed again.
“Oh, Emmett, I defiantly missed my big brother.”
“I missed you too, Bella. Hey is there any chance you still trip over stuff?”
“Yes, Emmett, and, if you want, I can move the bones in my ankle a bit so that I trip even more than I do now.”
“Yes, Emmett, really.”

Bella’s point of view:
“Honey, I’m home!” I called, walking into the living room.
“We’re in here!” called Rachel. I walked into the living room to find my entire family and the female Cullens sitting around talking.
“Hey, Princess! Where were you?” Asked Aiden.
“With whom?” he asked. He was so nosy!
“Emmett Cullen. But you couldn’t have been too worried about me. You didn’t call.”
“I did. Your phone was off. Alice and Rachel told me that you went hunting with Emmett but I didn’t believe them.”
“Never bet against Alice, Aiden. Trust me on this one. You can always bet on Alice. Besides, why would they lie?”
“I don’t know. I just figured. Maybe it’s because I know you. A little too well. You know, I am so happy that there are guys in this family. I would die if I was the only guy.”
“Well, if you really thought they were lying, you could have controlled them with your magic mind powers.”
“Well, I see that as taking advantage of somebody. I would never do that.” Everybody laughed.
“Well, tell that to Mrs. Eaton.” Said Angel. “Man, that was so funny when she started to gnaw on her own flesh in class!”
“Mrs. Eaton? Is she still alive? I figured she would be dead by now. She was older than a dinosaur when she was teaching us.” Dylan said.
“Well, if you could really call it teaching. She would tell us to do the math one way, than on the tests, it would be a different way! I feel so sorry for the kids who were taking that class for the first time…” said Kaylee.
“Oh, be quiet. So she was a little…odd…but she was nice enough.” Said Victoria.
“Well, anyway, aren’t we planning a wedding?” Alice input.
“Yes, these bridesmaids’ dresses are beautiful! Let’s get everybody’s measurements, so Alice can put the order in.” said Esme.
