You're Still Here!

Somebody comes to Forks that Edward thought should have died a long time ago. How will this new arrival affect the Cullens' and Bella's life? I know it says no spoilers, but there actually are a few. DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of the Twilight characters!

I just thought of this one day and decided it would be cool to write.

Karen’s P.O.V.

“What do you mean you really don’t think we want to know? Of course we want to know. What happened?” This was Alice.

What was I supposed to tell them? Oh, it’s no big deal. Sandra just broke up your fake brother’s relationship by running Bella into the arms- or should I say lips?- of another man. No big deal at all. Go ahead. Call up Edward and tell him. I couldn’t say that!

“Karen?” Clara asked, a hint of worry in her voice. “What’s wrong? What happened?”

I saw that Carlisle and Esme had come downstairs. Their expressions looked just like everybody else’s- a mix of anxiousness, curiosity, and stress, so I assumed that they knew what had happened. Great, just some more people to hate us. I decided that they would get it out of me eventually, maybe through torture, which I’m sure Mr. Emotions over there could do, like make me feel guilt or something for not telling them, as if I didn‘t feel guilty enough already.

“Does Jacob love Bella?” I asked, not really wanting to tell them just yet.

“Yeah. Why?” Alice asked.

“Has he ever acted on that feeling before?”

“I don’t think so. Just telling her he loves her and stuff. But that is just what I hear from Edward. I can’t see werewolves, remember? Why?”

“But he hasn’t acted on it physically?” I asked, ignoring her question.

“Not that I know of,” she said

“Why, Karen?” Esme asked me.

“Well, he has now,” I said, kind of quietly, hoping no one would have heard. They did.

“What do you mean by that?” Emmett asked.

“Well, I kind of saw them, ummm… well, I saw him… and her… well, ummm, kissing.”

“What?!” they all said back.

Bella’s P.O.V.

Jake came to a stop right outside La Push, which surprised me. It didn’t any more when I saw the silver Volvo parked on the side of the rode. I had had to run to catch up with Jake when he was heading to his car. The whole way to Forks I was pleading to him to not do anything rash, such as killing Edward as he had threatened to do. Of course he had ignored my pleading the whole way there, his mind already set. Jake got out right away and headed toward the Volvo. I saw that Edward was already out of it.

“Jake wait! Stop!” I begged more as I climbed out and followed him over to Edward.

“Bella! Let me explain. Please!” Edward came over and begged to me when I got closer.

I didn‘t look at him. I couldn‘t look at him. It would hurt too much. “Jake, please stop.” I could tell from the corner of my eye that Edward never stopped looking at me, though.

“You’ve got a lot of nerve,” Jake said to Edward, totally ignoring my begging, like I was trying to ignore Edward‘s, not succeeding of course.

“I didn’t do anything,” he told him, but still looked at me. “Bella, please believe me! I didn’t cheat on you. I swear!”

“Oh, really? Then why did she find you kissing another girl? Huh?” Jake questioned him.

“Bella. I never kissed her.-” Edward was cut off by Rosalie driving up in her car and Carlisle in his. Carlisle’s car had Esme and Edward’s sister’s family, in it. Rosalie had Alice, Jasper, and Emmett in hers. The girl Karen got out and started talking right away.

“Hey, Bella, Jacob, shut up and listen to him. He didn’t do anything, okay? It was all Sandra. She’s the one who kissed him. He didn’t kiss her back. He never cheated on you, Bella,” she said all in one breath. It made sense since vampires didn’t have to breath.

“Really?” I asked Edward, finally looking at him.

“Yes. That’s what I’ve been trying to tell you, but you wouldn’t listen.”

“Finally this is all getting straightened out,” Emmett said. By this time, the entire Cullen family was out of the cars, along with Edward’s sister and the girl that kissed him. “I felt so guilty that I let you go after I found out what had happened.”

“Dude, what’s your problem?” Karen cut into our conversation. At first I thought she was talking to Emmett, though I didn’t know why, but then I saw she was looking at Jacob. “Hellooo.” she said when he didn‘t respond, waving her hands in front of his face. “Man, stop checking me out!”

I looked at Jake and saw that he seemed frozen, his eyes locked on her.

“That’s impossible,” Edward said to himself, but I could still here him since I was standing right next to him.

“What? What’s impossible?” I asked. “What’s wrong with him? Jacob?!”
