The Volturi are strong, they are powerful. And the Volturi are vampires-which means they can do almost anything. Vampires come 1st and humans are definitely below them on the food chain. so what do you think will happen when the volturi pay a surprise visit to Forks high school because somebody broke their promise???

9. I can?t wake up
Rating 5/5 Word Count 1929 Review this Chapter
Edward’s point of view--------
“Bella, stay with me, no BELLA!!!” I screamed. Her heart finally stopped like Alice had predicted.
“Carlisle can’t you do anything?” I asked him. I now was holding Bella in my arms, her body was already getting cold and her face was draining color from lack of oxygen.
“I can try, we need to get her to the hospital.” I automatically got up and ran with Bella to the car. Her sweet smelling blood was all over me and that room…..it was so hard to not drink her dry...But I love Bella, I could never do that to her.
Everyone was now in two separate cars, Alice, Carlisle, and I in one and the rest of the family in the other car.
It was like we had just made it on time-but maybe a little too late. I was denying the fact that Bella did not have a beating heart-we could save her, we had to.
This was the fastest time I have ever seen Carlisle drive-he cared for Bella too.
As we speed through the city it was as if no one knew about the school incident. We would have to leave right after Bella’s okay, if she is okay.
No, I was not going to let my mind think negatively, she was going to be okay.
I had to hold my breath, as Alice did- the smell of her blood exposed everywhere was a little more then we both could take.
I could just picture all of the parents not getting to worried since school would have just ended 10 minutes ago, but then as time went by each one would get worried.
They would probably call one another to make sure that their child wasn’t at the other one’s house. Then they would drive to the school or call the police-each one would go to the school.
Then they would see it……..all of their children dead the cafeteria a total mess, Bella’s blood on the floor-what would they think?
When Carlisle made a stop we all got out and ran to the hospital doors.
“Well, good afternoon doctor Cullen.” A nurse said to him-she hadn’t seen Bella yet. Carlisle just nodded; he needed to get to the emergency doors.
Edward when the nurse starts screaming and asks how Bella is like this you say she is in a car accident on her way to school-I am going to go back to the school and give them a little evidence that that actually happened. Alice thought.
I nodded as she turned around and left. Great the nurse would be screaming.
As Carlisle ran to the emergency room doors I did the same thing.
Sure enough once she saw Bella and I she screamed. I rolled my eyes.
“What happened?” she asked as we now laid Bella in a bed, Carlisle was calling for more doctors and nurses.
“She got in a car accident.” I said.
The nurse was now pulling curtains around Bella, “I’m sorry but you have to go wait in the waiting room at this time.” She said. I wanted to insist that I stay but Carlisle put a hand on my shoulder.
It’s just for precaution. Plus they need to change Bella out of those cloths and get her hooked up to the IV-not like there will be any heart beat….Carlisle thought.
I turned around on my heel and headed to the waiting room. When I got there Esme was standing there with new clean clothes for me.
You might want to change, and then throw those cloths away-its getting a little bit harder for Jasper and all of us…. Esme thought.
I nodded and took the cloths and went to the men’s bathroom.
After I was done changing I took the rest of the blooded up cloths and buried them deep in the trash can.
I went back out and searched for Carlisle’s ‘voice’ to see what he was thinking.
When I finally found it I listened closely.
He was using something to try and restart her heart. They had already tried CPR and it didn’t work. Of course there was a swarm of doctors all around trying to help-it wasn’t going well.
“It was my entire fault.” He said as I sat down, but then I immediately got back up and was pacing.
“No, it wasn’t Edward.”Esme said.
“If I didn’t go to them”, them meaning the Volturi, “none of this would have happened.” I said. I was so angry with myself that if Bella didn’t live through this I would just go back to volterra.
“Edward-” Esme said but I cut her off.
“You know it’s true, Esme. If it wasn’t for me the Volturi wouldn’t have known about us over here, they wouldn’t know about Bella.” I said to her.
Her eyes were sad as most of the family’s were too. She didn’t argue with that, she just left it be.
I focused back on Carlisle’s mind, he tried the last thing he could, and it didn’t work. It had been 30 minutes since Bella’s heart stopped and most doctors had given up.
Edward, if you’re listening, there is only one more thing that can keep her alive. Her heart will not start by itself, Edward. You could keep her on a machine. We already did blood transplants, stitches, and casts……Carlisle thought.
“Carlisle said the only way was to put her on a machine.” I said to them.
A machine is where it keeps the person alive by pumping their heart for them but they can’t do anything, they are in a coma. It would be the same as her not being on a machine.
“It is whatever you want to do, Edward.” Esme reminded me.
Carlisle then came through the doors to ask what I was going to do. I was not going to give up on her.
I nodded, “put her on the machine then.” I whispered. He gave me one more look before heading back to the room he was in and coming out with nurses to move her to a different location.
I got up and walked with them. I looked down at Bella, she looked a little better than before. All of her bloody clothes were changed for a hospital gown, she was cleaned up of any other blood that was on her, but then her stitches and cuts, bruises, and casts were too much for me to look at.
He face had been totally drained of any color, and all I could think about was the last words she had said ‘Edward I love you.’
My angel was probably a real angel now, somewhere in heaven, but I wanted her to be with me instead, and it was kind of selfish to think.
Once they wheeled her in the hospital room doctor’s including Carlisle helped to hook her up to the machine. Once they did her heart started beating again. It was a beautiful sound, but looking at the machines, the sound was ruined-Bella wasn’t doing it by herself like she should.
“I am going to leave you alone with her, Edward think about it. She is in a coma like state-nothing will bring her back, the machine…it is just beating her heart.” Carlisle said. He wanted me to say goodbye to her and then stop the machine.
I didn’t open my mouth to say anything; I just turned away from him and looked at the peaceful Bella.
I heard Carlisle turn and leave, he shut the door behind him.
“Bella, somewhere in there you can hear me. I just wanted to say I am so sorry.” I paused as a sob ripped through my chest, but no tears came out.
“Sorry wouldn’t be enough, but it’s true. You didn’t deserve this, I do. Bella, I miss you so much already. I know you probably won’t like it, but I will go to volterra after this-without you Bella my life is meaningless.” I felt a little ridicules talking to a person that isn’t awake and will never be awake, but one look at her face, and that ridicules feeling was gone.
I took her hand in mine, they fit together perfectly.
“I wish there was some way to bring you back, Bella. Bella, I wanted to spend forever with you.” Another sob broke through my chest. “Our hearts will always be by each other. I don’t know if I will even have the strength to stand today after this. I promise you that we will be together again, some day.” More and more sobs were breaking through my chest.
“I love you, Bella.”I said to her, “I always will.” I kissed her one last time and then Carlisle came back in.
“Are you ready?” Carlisle asked me.
I nodded; I still held her hand in mine.
One by one Carlisle flipped the switch off, until it was the last one. Then the sound of the machine and the sound of her heart were gone.
Carlisle put a hand on my shoulder, “we will call Charlie after this and then we will leave this city.” He said. I got up and let Bella’s hand fall limply back on to the bed.
With one last look at her, I turned around and headed toward the door. I suddenly froze.
Bella’s heart was beating again
Carlisle and I rushed back to her; Carlisle put her on an IV so he could see the patterns of her heart.
“They are completely normal.” he said as he looked at the pattern.
“Bella, Bella can you hear me?” I asked her, holding her hand again.
“Edward?” she mumbled very softly.
“Bella!” I was so happy there were no words to describe it.
Bella’s point of view-------
I felt so stiff, like I had been lying where ever I was for a long time.
I opened one eye, I was in what looked like a hospital room, I was hooked up to an IV and all of my body was aching.
“Edward, where am I?” I asked him, still very quite. I didn’t have so much strength.
“You’re in the hospital Bella. I thought you would never wake again.” He said to me.
“What?” I asked a little more loudly, “why would you think that?”
“Your heart stopped back at what was left of the school. Carlisle tried everything to get your heart beating again, but it didn’t work. Then we put you on this machine and we just had turned it off and your heart started beating again by itself.”
This was a little too much for me to take in.
“You’re saying I was dead?” I asked him. I was dead????
“Well, yeah.” He said softly.
“But I am alive now.” I said the obvious.
“Yes, your alive now.” Edward was smiling as he leaned in and kissed me in my check.
I tried sitting up but Carlisle pushed me gently back down, “you don’t want to do that yet.” He chuckled.
“Why not?” I asked him.
“You have to take it easy, and I mean really easy, for the next week. You’re probably going to stay here for 2 or 3 weeks though.” “But don’t we have to leave town?” I asked, please, anything to get me out of 2 or 3 weeks of being in the hospital.
“We will soon enough.” Edward said.
“I love you Edward.” I said to him.
I pulled his hand closer to my face so I could kiss it.
“I love you too Bella.” He said.
