It was dark out and the rain poured harder, the thunder flashed by me, I closed my eyes again, letting tears trickle down my cheeks, the feeling reminded me of when Jacob brushed my cheeks. I rolled to my side hugging myself to to keep my self warm, to make me fall asleep.

"Hey Bells." Jacob said running towards me. "You feeling better?" He asked.

I nodded, "the cold is gone." I said hugging Jacob.

He beamed, "Good." He hesitated a bit, "Ready to go?"

"Yeah." I said getting into his rabbit. We were going to First Beach, to meet up with the rest of the pack and Charlie and Billy to have a barbecue.

We drove up to the parking lot, I was laughing at some stupid joke he told me.

"Hey Jake!" Sam called, "Hey Bells." He said when he noticed me.

"Hi." I said timidly.

Jacob and I walked up to the rest of the pack; Sam, Emily, Jared, Embry, Quil, Paul, Billy, and Charlie where there already.

"Hey vampire girl!" Embry called. I froze, pain rushing through me.

Paul punched Embry on the shoulder. Jacob wrapped his arm around my waist, "You okay?" He asked looking worried by my reaction.

I managed to regain my self, and nodded, "I- yeah I'm fine."

We walked down to the bonfire that Jared was making. "There's ribs ready for ya Jake," Jared called out pointing at the grill where Billy and Charlie were chatting away.

"Thanks!" Jacobs called, "Come on Bells," he said pulling my hand walking toward the grill.

"Hello Bella." Billy greeted me with a smile.

"Hi." I said, Jacob lunged himself at the ribs, he scarfed down about seven before I even sat down with my plate of food. I ate only two ribs, Jacob joked about it.

"Man Jacob, you sure eat." Charlie said noticing Jacob's loud chews. Jacob just smiled hugely, nodding.

He finished about twenty ribs before he belched really loud saying that he was full, he wiped his hands with a few paper towels. Then he got about five cans of soda and chugged them down, I giggled.

He got up taking my hand, Charlie smiled at the scene, I rolled my eyes. "Lets walk a bit yeah?" Jacob asked.

I stood up, "Sure."

We walked to 'our' tree stump. We sat in silence for a while looking out into the beach, the sun was setting, creating a beautiful orange glow on the water. I smelled the fresh salty air looking out into the horizon.

Jacob was hesitating, I could tell, I wanted to ask what it was but I let him do whatever he wanted to do for himself.

When the sun touched the water Jacob turned to me taking my hands, "Bella." I looked at him. "These few months have been great with you." He said, his hands shaking.

"Very great." I said.

He beamed, and continued, "I wanted to ask you something for a while but I don't know what you will say," He looked out into the sun, it was almost halfway down, "You have interested me more than any girl ever." He brushed my hand, he looked directly into my eyes, his black eyes shimmering. "Will you be my girlfriend?" At the last word his voice broke, now I understood why he was so nervous the entire day.

I smiled, but then I looked down to my hands entwined with his.

"Its because of
him isn't it? I know what happened last week at prom hurt you, Bella, but I'm here for you..." He asked upset.

He was right, I was thinking about Edward, about how he came out of know where at prom, but I made him leave. I looked at Jacob, Edward hadn't come back, and I doubted he would ever come back after what happened last week. I looked back down, Jacob loved me, and I loved him, I needed to move on..."No, its

nothim," He smiled at my answer, "Jacob..." I looked up to his eyes, "Of course I will be your girlfriend."

He sighed in relief, then looked out into the sun, the sun was halfway through, I knew this was the timing he was waiting for. He bent down to me, and I closed my eyes, he kissed me slowly first. His lips were incredibly warm they burned mine, but I didn't let go, it felt nice. He wrapped his arms around me and I brushed his cheeks. I knew I was going to blow it out of proportion when I went into a full blown kiss.

I gasped for air when our lips parted, he panted, "Wow, that was...wow." He beamed, "I liked it."

"So did I," I admitted with a blush. I wondered how many people saw that, and yet I didn't really care.

I woke up with a jolt. It was morning and I felt my eyes puffed up. I touched my lips, I could still feel the burning of Jacob's first kiss. I walked into the bathroom to wash my face and brush my teeth. My eyes were so puffed up it was a miracle I could see through them.

"Mommy will you read me a story?" Alice said in a weak voice. I was sitting next to her hospital bed. I looked down at all the wires and the IV she had on her hand and shivered.

"Sure honey," I said getting a book out of my bag. Anthony was fast asleep.

I opened the book and began reading the story.

I couldn't help tears falling off my face when I read the story, I kept thinking about my children, if they would survive. They didn't know about their father and I wasn't planning on telling them until the time was right. I wouldn't want to worry them now, it wouldn't be healthy for them.


"'And they lived happily ever after'," I said ending the story, I sighed and the tears trickled slowly down my cheeks, I had a fairy tale ending once.

Alice had already fallen asleep, I sighed and put the book in her hands.

"Ma'am," the nurse said appearing out of the corner, I looked at her, "visiting hours are over, I'm sorry." I nodded and got up, giving a kiss to Alice and to Anthony.

I got out into the rain, I was surprised to find a yellow Prosche, and surprised to find the person inside of it. Behind the Porsche was a Mercedes that I knew oh too well, in front of all those was a familiar car, Edward's Vanquish, the car he used to take me to prom. My heart thumped faster as the smiling faces of Alice and Jasper, in the yellow car; Rosalie, Emmett, Carlisle and Esme in the Mercedes. Alice waved at me to come in to her car; and Edward smiling brightly in his vanquish.

Edward opened the sliver Vanquish's car door gesturing me to come in. I walked obediently in it, smiling with shock.

"Whats this?" I asked.

He chuckled, "I knew you needed a pick-me-up and everyone wanted to see you, so..." He chuckled again.

"Thank you, Edward, this is exactly what I needed." I said, he smiled. I looked out back and back to where I was sitting, "Uh...nice cars."

He laughed, "Well, Alice's Porsche I bought her, she saw it in a magazine and wanted it. You know the Mercedes, and the vanquish of course." He said revving the engine, it purred -instead of the roar the rabbit did- angrily, I could tell the engine might be in tip-top shape. "We call these our..er..classic cars, our newer cars are back home."

"Yeah what about fitting in?" I asked.

"We don't live here anymore." He said smiling.

I sighed as we pulled out of the parking lot, and made our way down to their old mansion.

I felt a not in my stomach when we pulled up into the he glorious house, it didn't look the way I last saw it. It looked much older, but still beautiful. I looked around, the big white house looked foreign to me, like I didn't belong here, like I wasn't needed here.
