Chapter 13

Gone

I needed to leave both Edward and my family.

In this house, Edward didn’t have a huge glass window covering his wall, it was a plain and simple window. I stood up, still wearing my jeans and Edward’s shirt, threw the window open and was about to jump off the ledge, but someone pulled on the back of my shirt, bringing me back into the bedroom.

I landed on my back, surprised by the sudden impact of my back meeting the floor. I stood up and looked to see Alice standing there, her hands on her small hips, her perfect eyebrows raised.

“Where do you think you’re going, Bella?” She asked, her eyes filled with hurt and question.

“I’m going for a run?” I said, questioning my own actions.

“Nice try. A better question would be, why are you leaving?” She asked me.

“I’m not leaving.” I lied, looking anywhere but at Alice’s face.

“Bella.” She warned me one last time.

I sighed heavily, knowing that she knew what I was doing.

“I can’t do it, Alice.” I whispered.

“You can’t do what?” She asked me.

“I can’t choose between Edward and my family. I won’t do it.” I said.

Alice was quiet for a minute and she nodded her head. “Okay. Let’s go.” She said.

“What?” My head snapped up.

“Let’s go.” She said. “I’ll go with you, just let me pack. I have clothes for you in my room, I’ll get them for you. Give me two minutes.”

“Alice, you need to stay here, with Jasper.” I said.

“No. I’m coming with you. Someone needs to. Stay here.” She said, and ran away before I could reply, being the stubborn person that she was.

I sighed and dropped onto the couch, grabbing a pen and a pad of paper, writing Edward a final goodbye.

Edward,

I love you. Please know this. I will love you forever. I needed to leave. I can not choose between you and my family. I probably sound insanely selfish right now, but I can’t do it. I love you and my family too much to cause either of you the pain of choosing one over the other. I’ll love you forever. Remember one more thing for me. Forever is for eternity.

Love always, forever, and for eternity,

Bella

P.S. Jasper, Alice is with me. She came with me on her own accord. She found out I was leaving through a vision. Please do not be mad at me or her.

I put the note on the couch, folding it over with a white lily inside the note. Leaving both of our signature signs.

Tears started to make their way down my cheek as Alice came in the room with a shoulder bag slung over her arm.

“Alright,” She said. “I ordered tickets to Seattle. We’ll rent an apartment and stay there. I paid for the tickets in cash and we leave from the airport in an hour, so let’s go.” She said, throwing me another shoulder bag she had brought in with her.

I wiped the tears, caught the bag, and followed her out the window, jumping down three stories, and landing cat-like on my feet. Alice was running right in front of me, both of us faster than we normally would have run.

We arrived at the Denver airport within a half-an-hour of running, I was exhausted, having never run that far or hard before. I entered the automatic door behind Alice of the airport.

We got on our plane twenty minutes later and the plane took off, arriving in Seattle two hours later.

As the plane went on, I wondered if Edward and Jasper knew we left yet.

Edward’s POV

Bella had been up in my room for over twelve hours and I went up to check on her, not knowing if she had stopped thinking yet. I knocked softly of the door, opening it up after no reply and saw an empty room.

Bella was gone. All that was left was a piece of paper and a white lily on a cushion of my black leather couch.

I rushed over to the note and picked the note up, leaving the lily on the couch, and started to read my Bella’s script.

Edward,

I love you. Please know this. I will love you forever. I needed to leave. I can not choose between you and my family. I probably sound insanely selfish right now, but I can’t do it. I love you and my family too much to cause either of you the pain of choosing one over the other. I’ll love you forever. Remember one more thing for me. Forever is for eternity.

Love always, forever, and for eternity,

Bella

P.S. Jasper, Alice is with me. She came with me on her own accord. She found out I was leaving through a vision. Please do not be mad at me or her.

I stood there, not knowing what was happening. Two words going threw my head, none others. Bella left.

I got angry and growled ferociously, attracting my family to my open door.

“Edward? What’s wrong?” Esme asked, softly.

“Bella’s gone.” I said, only loud enough for them to hear it. “Alice went with her.” I added, seeing Jasper with my family at my doorway.

Jasper rushed over to me, grabbing the note out of my hands, reading it over and I saw pain written all over his face.

“Where are they?” Esme asked.

“It doesn’t say.” Jasper said.

“Where’s Bella?” I saw Aidan at my doorway. It was his fault.

All of a sudden, I was blindsided by my anger, and I rushed at him, not caring if he died at all.

But before I could reach me, Jasper had a hold of me. “Edward, don’t. It’s not his fault. We can find them. Knowing Alice, she probably took a plane somewhere. We’ll call the airport, check if an Alice Cullen called and see if she bought two tickets somewhere. Don’t get in a fight again. We’ll find Bella and Alice. Let’s go.” He said, tugging my arm.

I glared at Aidan and followed Jasper out the door to the phone. I watched him call up the Denver airport.

“Hello, can you tell me if an Alice Cullen bought two tickets somewhere? It is an emergency.” Jasper said to the person on the other end.

There was a pause and talking on the other end.

“What do you mean you can’t tell me?” He asked, getting angry.

More talking on the other line.

“It’s confidential? My wife and my brother’s girlfriend are off God knows where and we need to find them damnit!” Jasper yelled.

“Damn.” He said, hanging the phone up, slamming it down in the cradle. “They hung up on me. They wouldn’t tell me where they were going either. Apparently, they have a new policy, where they will not divulge flight information of certain people unless there is written consent or the person asks herself or the parents ask.” Jasper growls.

I was growing angrier by the minute. Bella had left and we had no way to get to her. Damnit.

Bella’s POV (Really short here)

I followed Alice up the stairs to the house, tears streaming down my face, that had once been their’s in Forks. They still owned this house, apparently, after 23 ½ years. Huh.
