Jake carried me to his car and strapped me in.

"Jake...how did you find me?"

"Your mum came over and asked where you are so I said. I realized I wouldn't get to see you again so she gave me your new address in Phoenix. I decided I'd go to Port Angeles and buy you a book, then send it on. My way of apologizing for everything. I was walking and I heard screams. I ran over and saw them"

"Where's my mum?" I managed to say.

"Well...I wanted to help you so I attacked the guys around you. One of the guys with your mum panicked and stabbed her. She was dead. I'm sorry" I closed my eyes. I didn't ask where we were going. I didn't ask why he wanted to apologize. I didn't even re-button my shirt (which was still hanging open) I was so tired. My eyes were barely open. I was dimly aware of lights, and angry voices.

"What did you do to her?" Edward? Yes, Edward.

"Nothing! I saved her!"

"Sure you did! She looks half dead"

"Give it a rest Edward. He did save me," I mumbled.

"See?"

"Dog, get lost"

"You're just lucky leech. If I had had any sense, I'd have taken her to la Push. I just figured she might be hurt and your leech doctor could look after her better then the pack could"

"Probably the first sensible thing you've ever done"

"Edward, quit it," I muttered, "Stop bickering"

"Okay" he said "Thank you Jacob Black, for returning her to our care with trust" it was a very formal thank you.

"Thanks Jake. Bye" I muttered. I didn't hear him reply. Edward carried me upstairs and placed me on something
soft. I felt a warm blanket being draped over me.


I woke up. I wasn't where I'd thought I'd be, in my bed. I was on the sofa in Edward's room.

"Hey Bella. Sorry, this was the best we could do. Your
bed was kind of...wrecked. By me. And we had none spare" I jumped off his sofa.

"Bella? What's wrong?"

"I can't stay here," I gasped.

"Bella?" What?" I ran from his room and down the stairs.

"Bella. Stop!" he said. I didn't I was at the front door when his cool arms wrapped around my waist.

"Bella, Bella. Relax," he said. I kept struggling, trying to hit him.

"Jasper" he said. Jasper placed a hand on my shoulder and tiredness spread over my body.

"No! No! Stop!" I screamed.

"Bella, just relax. It's me," Edward whispered. "Bella.
You're safe" the wave of lethargy swept over my body and I collapsed into Edward's arms. I was still semiconscious as he carried me back inside the house and upstairs. He opened a door and placed me on a bed. I was aware of shapes moving around me, mocking and threatening me. I screamed as I heard my mum scream. The darkness that surrounded me, threatening to engulf me was winning over my limbs.

"Bella. You're okay. You're safe. I promise" those were the last words before the darkness overcame me and I thought no more.
