Edward sat quietly as I sniffled my way to calmness. I breathed heavily, my body felt weak. The only thing that made me get up in a jolt was the phone ringing down in the kitchen. I ran my way as fast as I could -without tripping- and picked up the phone panting.

"Hello?" I asked, my voice was hopeful. I wanted Jacob to call. He had left about an three hours ago, I needed him to know everything, I hadn't explained everything because I was petrified. But now I needed him to know.

"Hello, is this the Black residence?" A voice asked, I didn't recognized it so my face fell.

"Yes." I said in a glum voice, "how can I help you?"

"This is Dr.Snow at the hospital.You are Isabella Black, correct?"

I jerked my head up with a gasp, "Yes." Edward was down the stapes leaning casually against the wall, his face sad, and his eyes dark. I ignored him, the mention of the hospital made me think terrible thoughts, and they all involved Jacob.

The next words coming from the phone hit me in the pit of my stomach, " Your husband Jacob Black and you children Anthony and Alice Black have gotten into a terrible accident." I froze and dropped the phone to the floor, my legs shook. Edward swiftly picked the phone up and put it on speaker.

I landed gently in his arms. He wrapped his arm around my waist, I breathed hard, clutching onto Edward hand, my nails digging into his arm.

"I am sad to say that they seem in very serious condition, I would say you should come down as soon as you can." The voice of Dr.Snow kept talking but I hardly paid attention. "Good bye Miss Black."

Edward hung up the phone and sat me down gently on the couch. I panted, my eyes burning from the tears.

"Bella?" He asked in a soft voice.

I looked up at him and then looked back down, his eyes were warm and golden but the eyes I needed to see were the dark eyes of Jacob, the big brown eyes of both my children.

"I have to go." I said standing up and letting go of Edward hand around my waist.

"I'll take you." He said.

I shook my head, "No its fine." I went to the table to get the keys but Edward was there before me, dangling the keys from the tip of his hands.

"I'm not letting you go alone like this." He said pointing at my eyes, I blinked rapidly trying to move away all the tears.

I wiped my eyes, "I'm fine, Edward." I said as stern as I could make my voice.

He smiled, amused. "I'm taking you and that's that." He said walking towards the door, opening it for me.

I couldn't argue with Edward, I would'nt win and I wanted to get out of the house quick and be with Jacob. So I played a smile on my face and walked through the opened door.

Edward opened the door of Jacob's rabbit with a grimace -he obviously wasn't used to the ancient rusty-type cars- and closed the door as soon as I got in. He appeared int he drivers side is less than a second later. He turned the key in the ignition and revved out of the drive way.

We were pulling up to the hospital parking lot ten minutes later.

"The car will be here when you come back. I'll see you...some other day." Edward said as I reached over for the door handle.

I turned around. I opened my mouth to protest but Edward shook his head and disappeared out of the car into the pouring rain.

I sat in the car bewildered, I gathered my thoughts and got out of the car and made my way as quickly as I could into the hospital.

There wasn't many people in the waiting room, only about three people; a worried man with a "Its a Boy" balloon, a mother holding her crying child in her arms, with a terrible cough.

I walked up to the window, behind it was a bored looking nurse talking on the phone and skimming through papers. She looked at me, held up one finger signaling me to wait a moment. I tapped my finger nails impatiently, I didn't have time, my husband and children might-

I stopped thinking, my thoughts couldn't trail there. I couldn't be thinking the worst. I had to think that my family was fine, they were just ill.

The nurse put down the phone, "How can I help you?" She asked with a nasal type voice.

"I came to visit someone...'s," I stuttered nervous.


"Jacob, Anthony, and Alice Black." I said biting my lips.

"Yes they are all in the same room." She said handing me a 'visitor' sticker, "Room 62 B." She said.

I went up in the elevator, and followed the sign, '50B-70B' to the left. I followed it and paced quickly through the white halls.

I reached the room and found Jacob awake, the kids -the lady told me- had been given sleeping pills for the pain and were fast asleep.

Jacob scowled when I walked in the room. "Hi." I said in a small voice.

He nodded looking out the window.

"Jacob." I whispered, tears returning to my eyes, I sat down next to him. "Please, I love you, you know that. Edward did come. I wont deny that, he just came to check how I was doing, he wanted to help me, he saw how I had two kids and he wanted to help me, that's all. that note was something he wrote for me, it didn't mean anything, he still loves me, but I love you best. Always, remember that day int he movies thirteen years ago?"

Jacob smiled and nodded, "That's okay, you know. As long as you like me best," he repeated the same words he once said to me in the movies.

I grinned and bent down to his face and kissed him gently on the lips.

"I still don't like it that he's here." He said when we pulled apart.

"I know, and I'm sorry for not telling you sooner."

"And I'm sorry for blowing off on you like that back at the house. I was just upset of the vampire that we hadn't caught, and which turned out to be Edward." He said with a sheepish smile. "I don't like him, you know that, it just got me so mad, but I'm over it." He said tracing my lips, his voice weak and trembling.

He had huge cuts around his face, and a gauze in his arm. He had a broken leg, and seemed to have lost blood. The nurse told me, before I entered the room, that Jacob seemed worse then the children. I was worried, she also said that Jacob was in critical condition.

I closed my eyes, the tears dripping. I didn't want to lose Jacob but the way he looked told me he was too weak.

I pressed my lips against his once more and the machine started beeping frantically, Jacob's heartbeat had sped up.

I grabbed his hand tight as he gasped for air.

Don't die, I cant lose you.
