I felt the thrill go through me as Jake pushed down harder on the peddle. The engine revved and we shot even further forward. The vibrant green tree’s flew past outside the shaking window.

I knew I should of spoke and questioned why he was here, but I couldn’t seem to find my voice. It was trapped deep down inside my chest, along with the cries of pain. I listened to Jacob talk, his questions remained unanswered.

“Why were you on the edge of a road Bella!? Renee was under the impression that you had been locked away in this camp. How did you escape? I doubt the security was really that bad….” I let the questions roll off his tongue, I wasn’t listening. I could still hear him muttering to himself when I drifted into sleep. The shock of today had overwhelmed me, now leaving me exhausted.

The sounds of an unfamiliar beeping woke me from my long sleep. The beep’s were consistent and in time with each other. But, the tone of the beep’s didn’t seem very welcoming, it made me feel unsafe and insecure.

My eyes fluttered open to reveal a pale blue room, light poured in through the open window. It didn’t make me feel any safer though. Not one bit. A big window lay at the far end of the light room, but the blinds were closed, making it impossible to see through them. A table was placed to the right of me, and on it were a big bouquet of flowers. Vibrant colours dosed every petal. Cushioned chairs were stewed around the hard bed which I was lying on.

One thousand memories came back at once, making me cringe with painful remembrance. I was in a hospital. Tubes and needles were shoved into my pale skin. Jacob drove me here. I escaped from the Volturi’s organisation… Unbearable memories. Unbearable recognition. Unbearable without Edward. The saddest part was that I new I wasn’t ever going to see him again. I didn’t know where he lived, I didn’t know how to contact him…I wasn’t even sure if he was still living. It’s like summer romances, they never last. Only that certain summer can preserve them, but from then on they are burn into the past. They are forgotten. I couldn’t bare to think that this would be us. It pained my mind.

A faint sound brought me out of my saddened thoughts. Standing by the door was a nurse. Her dark blue dress was pristinely clean, and her face held a smile. She pushed a trolley into the room.

“Good, you’re finally awake.” She parked the trolley next to my bed and started searching for something. She spoke while she looked. “I’m afraid that we’ll have to be keeping you in here for a while, you crushed your leg very hard. The bone has snapped, and since you didn’t get here until a couple of months afterwards it is now unfixable.” She brought her head up from the small trolley, and her tone became soft. “I’m sorry, honey. You’ll have to be in a wheelchair from now on.”

The words didn’t surprise me, I new that it was coming. Sad as it is.

“I’ll need to give you this though, it’ll ease the pain.”

I cringed as she injected the drugs into me, I had a phobia of needles. Always have and always will do.

I then watched the nurse silently walk out of the room, taking her trolley with her. She smiled as she left the room, I failed to return the gesture. Ashamedly I couldn’t find the muscles that worked my mouth, or at least they weren’t working.

Tiredness crept over me as I sunk into sleep. Endless sleep.

I awoke, but my eyes didn’t open. The faint sound of beeping still remained in the light room, although other sounds occupied it too. Anxious voices were talking on edge.

“Oh my poor honey,” a moan left a woman’s lips. Renee. My mom was here? My mom was here!

“I should taken more care of her. Should have been with her more. I will never forgive myself,” mutters of discontent left a males mouth. Charlie.

“She’ll be fine. She’ll be fine.” By the sounds of it Jacob was there too.

I had no other option that to open my sleepy eyes. All the people who I cared for most was here, in the same tiny room. Everyone. Although I dismissed the one sad exception. I wanted to tell them that I was fine, I wanted to tell them there was nothing to worry about. I wanted to tell them that I was the same Bella as I used to be, and that the Volturi hadn’t changed me.

“Oh, Bella.” Renee jumped off her seat and moved closer to me. Her blue eyes held so much worry that it had now resorted in red blotches around her eyes. It was painful to look at her internally hurt face.

I tried to speak back but I couldn’t find my voice. It was overcome with Renee’s worry.

“Bella you look so much better than when I found you,” Jacob leaned over me too. Somehow his voice was reassuring, the soft edge to it helped. “You look almost like the normal Bella.”

That’s what I was afraid about: the normal Bella. To them I had changed, I had become another person. Not the usual Bella Swan, but an alien Bella. Their mind was made up and I was never going to be the ordinary to them. Whether they knew it or not their everyday actions wouldn’t be like they were before I disappeared. From now on I will always be different.

I felt a tear produce on the edge of my eye. Although I tried to pull them back tears were now overflowing from my lower eye lid. It was the thought of the ones I loved not loving me back anymore, their heart would always remain with their old Bella…the girl which I still was.

“Don’t cry,” Renee’s cold hand stroked my face.

I turned my head in the other direction so that Renee couldn’t see my salty tears. Then I gathered all my strength into speaking. It would help…I think.

“Mom…Can I be alone? I need some time to think,” I croaked.

“Of course, of course,” she said and forced a smile.

Renee, Charlie and Jake filed out of the room, leaving me abandoned. I couldn’t deal with other people when my head was in one place. Just seeing Mom and Dad’s pained faces only made it worse.

I looked up at the cracks in the white ceiling, letting my brain take its own undecided path. Life was just going to have to take its own course from now on, and I was going to have to follow it. With no choice I would let it proceed.

The click of the door didn’t take my eyes away from the ceiling, I couldn’t be bothered to deal with anything else now. It was probably just the nurse anyway.

“Bella?” a velvet voice forced my eyes away from what I was looking at.

I gasped in shock.

His perfect face hadn’t changed, his green eyes still held the same factor as they did before. And his face still held the same love…the love which I once fell so passionately for. The love which I will never let go.

“Edward!”

He quickly walked towards me and grabbed my hands in his. Then all too quickly his lips crashed unexpectedly into mine, forcing powered the kiss. The moment was so much more magical than it my dreams.

“I missed you so much Bella,” his voice was a whisper. “The minute Alice saw you here I came at once, hoping that I would find you…” His sentence trailed, unfinished.

“I missed you to Edward,” I whispered back.

“I can’t believe I was so selfish to leave you. But, please know that I will never let you out of my sight again. My heart it beats, beats for only you. Always know that, Bella.”
