Back from the Past

A 'Pride and Prejudice' play in the present, and a bet among heartbreakers, Edward and Emmett in the past: The last to marry wins the Cullen estate. What happens when Jasper Whitlock finds a way to time travel, and the whole group meets. Will the pairs fall in love? We shall see... banner by me

AN: So this is a new story that I had the inclination to write last night. I’m really excited about it, more so than I was with What We Become. That may be a sign that this story will do just as well as the latter. I am just going to say that this story is meant to be a romance. I have read dozens of historical fiction novels, novels based in the 19 th century etc. I love writing from the perspective of those types of stories. You probably figured that out in my previous story, Edward and Isabella . Whether you think I have skill in that department is your opinion only. Enjoy. DISCLAIMER: I do not own Twilight by Stephenie Meyer, though I use her characters and setting. This story was inspired by the movie Kate and Leopold , starring Meg Ryan and Hugh Jackman (sexy as ever).

Chapter One

Bella slammed the door behind her, an emphasis that she was furious. She curled her nose, spun around on her heels and shoved the lock into place. With a huff, she flicked the hall light on and headed into the living room. Throwing her trench coat on an arm chair, she swung herself onto the sofa. Bella closed her eyes, pulled her hands through her long brown hair and muffled a scream, pounding her feet on the coffee table. Angry tears started to pool up behind her eyes. Leaning forward, she messily untied her running shoes and threw them in a heap on the floor in front of her television. She couldn’t sit any longer; Bella stood up and made her way to the window, pushing it open with a heave. Instantly, the sound of the city below flooded her apartment.

“Rough day?” Alice said from behind her. Bella turned around, her eyebrows arched. She took in the sight of her bubbly best friend, and curled her lips to retort. Alice stood from where she was reclining on the bar stool and lifted both hands, palms forward. “Hey! I’m just being the concerned friend, don’t go and take your anger out on me.” Bella sighed through her nose, but looked away. “That’s better.” Alice walked around the kitchen island and started pouring a glass of water from the tap. “Here.” She held the glass out for Bella to take.

“Thanks.” Bella murmured apologetically. She took the glass of water and drank it down.

“Don’t worry.” Alice leaned against the granite counter. “I’m guessing you didn’t get picked for the part of Jane Bennett?” Bella let out a breath that sent her bangs up. With a disappointed smirk, she shook her head.

“Nope. Apparently I’m not right for the part.” Her voice quivered. Bella banged her knuckles on the counter. She sat down and laid her head in her crossed arms. It was silent for a moment until Alice started tapping the toe of her shoe impatiently against the floor.

“Did you get any part at all? Because Bella, you are amazing at acting. They invited you to this school for a reason.”
