Edwards POV


Everything that had happened in the past minute was a complete and total, potentially catastrophic, blur. My mind was in a whir and the first conscious thought I had was, Alice is going to kill me. After, of course, she fabricated the evidence and convinced fifty or so people I so did not just jump out of an airplane. Little Alice would have fun with that one. I think I ran to the door fast enough so no one saw me. A vampire with an adrenaline rush is a powerful thing. I was able to open the airplanes door against tremendous turbulence and jump in the blink of an eye. Wow, I didn’t realize my own power…cool.

Then the thought of Alice’s tiny yet lethal hands gripping my neck made me stifle a laugh. She could try to kill me for this, come to think of it, I would let her if it would get me to Bella faster. Why would Bella do such a final and devastating thing as kill herself? Doesn’t she understand that if she does it will kill me too? What about Charlie and the rest of her family, what about the rest of my family? Don’t any of us matter? I love Bella with all my being, but after I catch up with her…we have to have a serious talk. I cant have her running around trying to take her own life, when the world seems keen enough to do that for her.

The air rushed into my ears and I let the constant whoosh of it take my thoughts away. Freefalling was something I rarely do, and to tell the truth, if I wasn't under such dier circumstances, I would have immensely enjoyed it. The rush if it would have made my blood pump like mad, if I had any. Even though I don't, I felt the same pleasure. It awakened my senses, a good thing, I might need it for whats up ahead.

The ground was nearing and I had to be ready to roll. Literally. I curled myself into a ball, and started spinning. I didn’t want to leave to big an impression in the ground, Alice shouldn’t have to cover up <b>too</b> much. I landed with a thud and a grunt, like I intended I rolled. I was pleased with myself a fall from a few thousand feet in the air should have hurt a little more than that. My landing was smooth, but I could brag on that later..Emmett would try to out do me, no doubt, I can’t wait to see him try. I became focused again, grabbed my bearings on the situation, and turned toward Canada..I had a long run to get to Alaska.

Alice’s POV

I will kill him. I stood gracefully and put a smile on my face. One good thing about being a Vampire is being able to lie so flawlessly. I can do that nearly as well as Edward can. Edward escaped well, much to my displeasure. Only a few people caught drift of something gone wrong. All they needed was a minor distraction to get back to normal. I walked to the bathroom, pleased as people turned away from their windows to watch me. I went in and waited a few moments, then I returned to my seat. Everyone was at ease, and it would be easy to diffuse anyone who challenged Edward was on the plane.

Jasper squeezed my hand as I sat down.

“Weird day, huh?” He inquired.

“Yes. Too much so…even for me.” I sighed.
