Edward's point of view, The Meadow:

After ten minutes of thinking about Bella I began to breakdown and sob dry tears for her. Without her I am just plain pathetic. Pulling a picture of her out of my wallet I continued to lay there just thinking about Bella and looked at her gorgeous face. No not gorgeous, gorgeous was an understatement of how beautiful she is... was. It didn't matter how painful it was, she deserved to be thought of. I miss her so much its unnatural. I need her.

I heard a faint rustling of leaves as someone approached the meadow. A woman who was not human came into view at the other end of the meadow. This woman was dressed just like a gypsy, with all the beads, scarves, the flowing skirt and shirt.

"Whoever you are please leave, I just want to be alone." I told her. What I said was completely true.

"I'll leave as soon as I tell you this; I have seen the future. Your number one desire you will have. First you must agree to visit your physic sister." She said in an ominous tone and waved her hands oddly as she talked. Immediately Bella's face was in my mind. She would be alive I could have her back. Before meeting Alice I would have never listened to a physic, now I never bet against them.

"Yes. I agree to go visit Alice."

"Good. In less than fourteen hours you will be there and everything will have changed for the better. I promise you that. I have been looking for you for seventy years. Good-bye." With that she was gone. Seventy years this odd woman had been looking for me.

Running at the fullest speed I could possibly go I headed towards the airport. Arriving in half an hour, I got a ticket and was on getting ready to get on the plane when Alice called. "I will be there in thirteen hours or less." I told her and hung up, most likely leaving her confused. Very quickly before she could call back I turned off the phone and put it in my pocket.

The plane ride was long and excruciating considering many things; I hadn't hunted in a while (though that did not seem to bother me), I really wanted to get to Mount Washington, New Hampshire, and most importantly I had a feeling deep down that told me I was going to see Bella very soon.

As soon as I was out of the airport I began to run as fast as possible again until I arrived at Jasper and Alice's house. I heard Alice telling somebody to do something. However, Jasper's car was not there. Who on Earth would be there? There were not any other cars.

"If you can wait twenty seconds to come in, your patience will be highly rewarded. Thank you for coming though." Alice thought. So I waited and stood outside on the front step waiting for her to come and answer the door. After twenty seconds the door was opened by Alice whom immediately engulfed me into a hug.

"Hello Alice." I cheerfully greeted her.

"Hi! Could you go get something off the counter in the kitchen for me?" She asked me but I heard a hint of eagerness in her voice.

Instead of asking why I went into the kitchen. As soon as I got in there I saw the one person I wanted the most in the world. I just stood there motionless. In that instant it was almost as if the last seventy five years hadn't happened.

I was in such utter shock all I could do was stand there like an idiot.
