EmPOV

Three years. It’s been three years and he’s still moping in a corner. I mean I know it would hurt a lot to lose someone. I know it would hurt a lot if I lose Rose. But come on, it was his fault. I would never leave Rose the way he did. We went back to Forks because Bella was missing. People said that she went missing the day that she did cliff diving while some claimed she’s dead since she never resurfaced. Alice has been trying to look into Bella’s future but it was a complete blank. We tried not to think about it whenever Edward was around. The thought of Bella jumping off a cliff sent a shudder through my body. It was his fault anyway. He was the one who lied. He was the one who –

A DVD case went flying over my head missing me by a quarter of an inch. I turned to see Edward head towards the staircase in vampire speed while Alice glared at me. She smacked me on the head with the magazine she was reading.

“What was that for?” I asked rubbing the spot she hit.

“You know damn well what that was for Emmett” she answered back.

I smiled at her sheepishly. I couldn’t help it. It was getting on my nerves.

“Sorry Eddie” I called out, knowing he would hear me perfectly well.

‘Could you please stop moping around? It’s affecting everyone especially Jasper’ I added in my head.

‘You know how annoying it is when he’s all moody. He’s becoming sooo much like you now’ I continued to add.

‘It’s no fun playing video games without him… Maybe you should play with me so you could get your head off things?’ I suggested. I was being nice.

I waited for a reply but nothing came.

“Eddie? Ehhddiiieee!!!” The whole living room reverberated as I called out. I saw Alice roll her eyes with the corner of my eyes and then I heard a growl from upstairs. After a second, I felt a DVD case hit me in the head. I looked down to see my copy of Call of Duty broken in pieces. I growled and looked up to see Edward smirking at me.

“You’re going to pay for that” I snarled at him and stood up from the couch. I was about to pounce on him when I felt somebody grab me from behind. I turned to see Esme holding me by my shirt. She shook her head disapprovingly. Of course, we can’t do it in the house.

“But Esme!!! He broke the one and only copy of Call of Duty that I have” I reasoned out. I know I was being childish but come on! My only copy of my beloved game and now it’s gone… There was no justice in this household. Just because he’s depressed, he’s allowed to throw things around?? That was so unfair!

Edward had an amused look on his face as I threw my little fit. Great, at least he was entertained. What an ass–

“Emmett, go hunt. It would do you some good” Alice said knowingly. What was up with people cutting off my thoughts today?

I held my head low in defeat and nodded. Fresh air would be good for me. Carlisle, Jasper and Rosalie were out hunting. Maybe I should join them? Nah. I’ll just go around here.

“Fine. I’ll go” I said then looked at Edward. “You will pay brother”

With that I turned around and left the house. I headed towards the forest and decided to hunt for a bit. I wandered around the woods just running around in circles. I hunted over the weekend so I’m still good. Hmm… what to do? I was still pissed off at Edward for breaking the disc when a light bulb lit up on my head. I’m gonna buy a whole bunch of copies! And I think the latest version was out now! I’ll run to Port Angeles for just a bit and make sure that nobody sees me coming out off the woods. Yeah that could work! I felt my wallet at my back pocket and I broke into a run.

***

I almost slammed the door at Game Stop. Stupid store doesn’t have what I want. Now, what do I do? I have to get that game. Jasper is gonna be pissed if he finds out that the game is broken. Crap. What to do? WHAT TO DO?!!

“H-hey! Hey you!” Somebody called from behind me.

I turned around to see the guy from Game Stop calling me. What does he want?

“Yeah?”

“If… If y-you really want t-that game, y-you could g-go to our branch in S-Seat-tle. They h-have a lot of copies of that. If y-you want I could c-call them and reserve a c-copy” he stuttered.

Seattle? It’s not far from here. I could go there!

“Yeah, that would be great. Tell them to reserve five copies. And I’ll be there before they close” I said.

The guy took a step back and looked at me like I had five heads.

“F-five c-copies?” he asked with wide eyes.

Was it really a big deal?

“Uh, yeah. Five… I have to give some copies to my brothers.” Yeah, right. That’s all for me just in case Edward decides to start throwing all my games at me.

“O-okay” he stuttered again then went back to the store.

Great. I’m going to have to delay my time of arrival there. Maybe thirty minutes is good enough. I did my silent exit towards the woods and I broke into a run.

***

I pushed open the door as I went out the store. I took the game out of the plastic bag and looked at it. Aaahh yess… Call of Duty 4! This is gonna be great! I can’t wait to play it. I am gonna beat Jas –

A burning scent caught my nostrils as I walked towards the park that was connected to the woods. I put the game safely inside my jacket. The scent was a mixture of smoke, vampire and blood. There were news about multiple homicides in the city and of course, we knew that a human couldn’t have done a lot of that in one night. We knew that newborns were on the loose but it seems like someone was getting rid of them. At least, we didn’t have to do the dirty work. Okay, leave them alone. Leave them alone. I turned to the opposite direction when I suddenly heard a loud crash and then a few seconds later a blood curling scream. I ran to the direction of the sound and then a very familiar scent caught me totally off guard. The smell of freesia and strawberries was everywhere. It was getting stronger as I headed towards a dark alley. There was fire burning but nobody was there. I heard a commotion a few blocks from where I stood and followed the sound.

I wasn’t prepared with what I witnessed. I almost stumbled back as I saw Bella moving beside the newborn. A few meters away from them were two other newborns. One was putting back the guy’s head. What was going on here? Bella moved so fast that my eyes couldn’t actually see where she really was. I stood there like a complete idiot. I was so stunned that I found it hard to move from my spot. I was hidden in the dark shadows of the alley. I continued to watch, trying to process what was going on. I saw a head and an arm being pulled off. Bella quickly lit a match them threw it towards the head. And in mere seconds, she had the newborn torn into pieces and was being piled up in the fire. Just as she was throwing the last part, the guy grabbed her from behind and threw her against the wall. The wall collapsed behind her and my blood boiled as I watched the guy glare at her. How dare he grab Bella like that?!

I took a step forward and was about to growl but Bella’s voice startled me.

“Well, it’s nice to see you in one piece again”

I looked up to see Bella with a sly smile on her face as she stood up and dusted off her dress. I took a step back into the shadows as I continued to watch. Bella moved so fast making the guy miss her. I heard Bella say something about making the same move twice. I watched in horror as the other girl pinned her to the ground and snarled at her. I heard Bella groan that sounded… annoyed?

“You’re gonna pay for that” she said and everything happened so fast. She pounced on the guy and at the same time, ripped both of his arms off. The guy fell to the ground and screamed in pain. The girl pounced on her back and I knew it was time to make my presence known. I stepped out of the shadows with shock still written all over my face. I still can’t get over it. It’s her. Bella.

Bella turned around and had a stunned look on her face.

“I’ll take care of this one. You take care of the other one” I said as I reminded her of the situation at hand. She nodded and turned to finish ripping the limbs of the guy.

I looked at the girl that was looking at me furiously. I shrugged my shoulders.

“Sorry” I said as I grabbed the girl by her arm. I don’t know why Bella was doing this but she was threatening her life so I’ll have to do what it takes to save her, right? I winced as the girl screamed in pain. I can’t believe I’m doing this for no reason. I sighed and started to tear her apart from limb to limb. After throwing the last part on the fire, I turned around to face her and I immediately took her in my arms. Everybody’s gonna be happy again. Edward’s gonna be happy. We’re going to be complete again.

“Bella” I said. She stiffened in my arms and she had a confused look on her face. As I took in her face, everything sunk in. Her eyes were crimson red and she was as pale as I was, maybe even more. Her body temperature wasn’t warm like before and she didn’t have a heartbeat. She wasn’t human anymore. She was a vampire. Ooohhh… Edward is gonna be mad. I then noticed the confused look on her face. Wait, she doesn’t know me? She pushed me with such a force I almost fell. I looked up to see her looking me straight in the eye.

“Bella… It’s me… Emmett” I was confused. How come she doesn’t know me?

“I… I don’t know you” Well, there she goes confirming my thoughts. She hesitated for a few seconds and what she said confused me even more.

“Please… Don’t follow me… You didn’t see me. You didn’t smell me. You didn’t track me down… Please” she pleaded.

I was confused. Why would she say that? Was she hiding from somebody? She looked afraid. I was about to say that she was safe with me but then she was gone. I tried to follow her but she was so fast. What she said made me stop as well. I have to give her what she wants. If she needs space, then I would give it to her.

I walked towards the opposite direction at human pace. I don’t get it. How did it happen? I mean, I know how it happened but who changed her? How come she doesn’t know who I was? If she doesn’t know who I was, what were the chances that she would remember the rest of the family? And Edward? Edward. Shit. I have to get him out off my head. I can’t let him know that I found Bella. Well, not yet. I have to talk to Carlisle first. They’ll be home by tonight so maybe I could get Edward to get out of the house for a few hours. Then, I’ll talk to Carlisle so we could figure out something. Yeah, that should work for now.

Now, the only problem is to keep Edward out of my head. Maybe I should annoy him so he’ll walk out of the house. I walked around in circles trying to figure out how to keep Edward out of my head when the perfect idea came to my head. I swear I could be a genius sometimes! I ran towards Forks with a grin on my face. I have to keep Edward off my head. I reminded myself. Shit. He might start hearing me.

I entered the door to our house to see everybody present except for Edward. He’s probably in his room moping again. I started to get anxious and Jasper gave me a look. I didn’t mind him and turned to Rosalie. Oh god, I missed her so much. I took her swiftly in my arms and kissed her. She looked at me concerned.

“You okay, babe?” she asked. I continued the counting in my head. I know he was gonna be suspicious but I don’t care. I just need him out of my head for a few hours until I get this cleared with Carlisle.

87 bottles of beer on the wall, 87 bottles of beer, take one down pass it around, 86 bottles of beer on the wall

“Um, yeah… I’m fine… Great even!” I said with as much enthusiasm as I could. Jasper raised an eyebrow in my direction. I whistled and looked around the living room. Then, I remembered the game on my jacket.

“Guess what? I got Call of Duty 4! Come on Jazz! Let’s check it out!” I said and bounded over the couch in front of the TV setting up the Xbox.

I heard Edward come down from the stairs and I started to get more nervous. Don’t think about it. Don’t think about.

72 bottles of beer on the wall, 72 bottles of beer, take one down pass it around, 71 bottles of beer on the wall

I put the game on the console and I waited for it to start up. Come on, hurry up! Geez… How long does it take to start up?!! I was pressing the buttons on the controller hard when I suddenly felt somebody taking the controller away from me. My eyes grew big and turned around to see everybody staring at me.

“What? I don’t know anything! I mean, why the hell are you staring at me like that?!” Fuck. I’m screwed.

68 bottles of beer on the wall, 68 bottles of beer, take one down pass it around, 65? Screw it. Don’t think about numbers. Think of something else.

Don’t think about it seems to be my mantra so I decided to go with that. Come on. Don’t slip. You didn’t see anything. You didn’t see anything. Bella’s face looking up at me confused flashed my mind for a brief second. I looked up to see Edward’s confused look become furious.

Oh shit.
