Bella's POV

I stayed in First Beach for another two hours or so with the rest of the mothers. I decided I wanted to leave my nerves were killing me, Emily noticed I look pale so she suggested I should go home, she thought the shock of Jacob going to fight got to me, I was worried for the vampire not the wolf. I thought to myself.

My phone rang when I was about to say goodbye tot he moms, "Jacob?" I asked, "Hey Bells, don't go home OK, stay in Emily's house for today, I don't want you going by yourself back to the house. I'll be there in a few hours, that leech seems to be getting away. I love you bye," He hung up before I could say another word, I shut my cell phone and put it in the duffel bag, good thing we brought extra clothes.

"Emily, Jacobs says for me and the kids to come stay at your house tonight. I hope you don't mind." I said putting the duffel bag on my shoulder.

Emily smiled, "Of course you are more than welcome at my house. The kids were begging for a sleepover anyway. Lets go." We got up to the car and we drove up to Emily's house.

Emily showed me to the room we were staying in, I set my bag down on the floor and I sat down on the bed looking out into the rain pour. I sighed, I was worried for Edward, I didn't want anything to happen to him. The reason why he was in mortal danger now was because of me, he came down here to see me and now because of me six werewolves are after him.

I could feel the tears coming from my eyes and drop to my palm. I sniffled, maybe I shouldn't of ever let Edward inside my house, not after all these years.

Emily came in seconds after, "Here is some tea Bella." She said handing me a teacup with some delicious smelling tea inside, she took in my expression, "Don't worry Bella, Jacob and the boys will be fine."

She thought I was worried for the wolves, well I was, but not as nearly as for Edward, there were six wolves and only one Edward. Edward was strong but not that strong, more tears dropped out of my eyes as an image of Edward against the werewolves passed through my mind.

"I-I know E-Emily, they will be fine but...there hasn't been a vampire here since Victoria, and I know she got killed, but nearly she killed Jacob also. I guess I'm just worried that this vampire might take him away from me." It wasn't a lie, I was worried that Edward might take down one of the wolves and that one would be Jacob.

"They'll be back soon, the boys know what they are doing," Emily kissed my cheek and fled out the door.

I returned to look out the window, the rain pored harder and the wind blew stronger.

Edward's POV

I sat in a dirty wet cave, hiding away from the six wolves that were in my tail, I couldn't believe they found me. The thunder sounded off near Forks, I sighed. I wanted to call Bella but that would be a mistake to do so I kept my phone in my pocket.

A cricket chirped inside the cave, I scowled, How long am I supposed to stay in here? I thought, I couldn't keep hiding from them like a coward, but I was out numbered. If only my family was here, but that would just bring more trouble to here, I wouldn't want that.

I took out my phone, then immediately put it back in my pocket. I sighed, my pants were wet and my shirt and jacket were torn. I couldn't keep running from them but I had no choice, I had no hope in me.

Then I remembered, the note Bella had left me was still in my jacket pocket. I reached in and took out the paper, it wasn't wet, the jacket protected it. I noticed it was in pink paper. I smiled.

I opened it,

"Edward, I know you say I cant make you go away, the truth is I really cant make you go away. I would never want you to go away. But you have to understand you have been out of my life for thirteen years, I got married, I have kids now Edward. You cant expect things to go back to how they were thirteen years ago. I just want us to stay friends, nothing more.

I'll always love you, no matter what,


I smiled to myself, she put she loved me no matter what. I folded the note back in my jacket. I loved her but I should not get into her life now, she has Jacob, I will respect that, no matter how much it hurt me.

I heard low growls coming from the outside, I smelled the air, it was them. I swiftly got up, but I didn't make noise and got in deeper into the cave, there was an opening at the end of the cave, it was small so I had to crawl my way out.

I glanced around and gasped as dark figure spotted me and came running towards me, growling loudly, its dark eyes on me.

I knew there was no way I could escape from it, I hadn't crawled all the way out of the whole and it was running at top speed.
