There are a lot of "if Edward never came back" stories, and in the ones I've read, Edward always runs into Bella or caves and comes back. What if Bella went looking for Edward? Bella tripped over a loose floorboard in her room. she finds some things she thought she had lost under it. does this mean Edward really loves her? she's going to find out. look out for the sequel to Somewhere! it's called Nowhere!
My inspiration for this story is when Bella has a fantasy on the flight to Italy in New Moon about following Edward around the globe after Alice told her she would change her. Also, though this story is kinda against the other "if Edward never came back" stories, I just want to say that those stories rock! Enjoy the story! Disclaimer: I am not Stephenie Meyer. I just like writing Twilight fanfic.

When I got off the plane I was greeted by an unexpected guest. Though, if I’d known she was in Denali, it would’ve been completely expected.
“Alice!” I ran into her open arms. I would probably have bruises in the morning because she was so hard, but I didn’t care. After almost a year apart, I was seeing my best friend again.
“Hey Bella,” she said happily. “I guess you know how I knew to come here.”
“Oh, Alice, I’m so happy to see you!” For once in a very long time, I was truly happy.
“Why are you here anyway?” she asked.
“You don’t know?”
“No, I can only see you telling me that if you were planning on seeing me here,” she informed me.
“Well, I found my birthday presents from last year under a floorboard in my room, and that made me wonder if he really does love me. So, I’m going to find him. I thought Denali would be a good place to start,” I explained my mission.
“Bella…” Alice said disapprovingly. “How could you think he-“
“I don’t want to hear anything about him right now,” I cut her off. “I want to find out for myself.”
She sighed in defeat. “Fine, but I’m coming with you.”
“You can’t! He’ll read your thoughts and run away before I can get to him!”
Alice rolled her eyes. “Oh well. You’ll never catch him as a human, especially without me. I guess we should just make him even angrier,” she muttered to herself. “Come on, let’s go back to the house.” She grabbed my hand and pulled me along, out the doors, to Carlisle’s black Mercedes.
We got into the car and Alice sped off into the night. I looked out the windows as we drove. The surroundings reminded me of the Cullens’ drive. The house was secluded and very hard to find, just like the big white house on the river.
After a few minutes, I asked Alice my burning question.
“Where is he?” I asked, thinking Alice would’ve seen him in one of her visions or he might be at the house. I had to be ready if he was here in Denali.
“Nobody knows,” she answered. “He’s careful not to pass by signs that may tell me, and he won’t answer his phone so I can ask him.”
“Oh,” I said in defeat. The silence continued on until I could see the house in the distance.
“Alice?” I broke the silence. “What did you mean about not being able to catch him human and making him even angrier?”
“According to him, I’m not supposed to even see you, let alone be looking for you in my visions. So, he’ll be mad at first about that,” she answered part of my question.
“What about the not catching him human part?”
“You haven’t guessed that part yet?” I shook my head. “Bella, unless you don’t want me to, I’m going to make sure you’re changed. He can be mad all he wants; he should have changed you before.”
“You’re going to change me?!” I asked in shock. She nodded, never taking her eyes off the road. “Thank you Alice! Thank you! Thank you!” I said jumping up and down in my seat and hugging her.
“Bella, calm down.” She put a restraining hand on my shoulder to stop me as we pulled up to the house in question. “Don’t forget the consequences of being a newborn. You will have to wait to go searching for him.”
“Oh, I forgot about that. Will I really be that bad?”
“Most likely. Now we need to go inside.”
“Ok.” We got out of the car and walked up the steps to the huge house. Alice opened the door, only to be hit by a chorus of worried voices.
“Where were you?!” I heard the beautiful voices of ten vampires ask.
“I had to pick someone up.” Alice was still standing in the doorway, blocking me from view. She pulled me through the door and I heard the gasps of the vampires who, just a moment ago, had been wondering where Alice could be. I looked around the room. Though I all ready knew he would not be there, I still hoped.
I stared into the faces of the five vampires I hadn’t met. These must be the Denali’s.
Esme was the first one to approach me.”It’s so good to see you Bella!” she said, locking me in a stone embrace
Before I could say anything, I heard a snide vampire speak. “So this is why he’s not here, too.”
“Huh?” I was confused of why I meant that Edward wouldn’t be here. Did that mean I was driving him apart from his family?
“Haven’t you noticed he’s not here? The rest of the Cullens said it was because of you,” the vampire I had yet to know the name of continued.
“And you are..?” I trailed off.
“Oh, I’m sorry. My name is Tanya. These are my two sisters: Kate and Irina,” she pointed to the two girls standing on her left, “and this is Carmen and Eleazar.” She pointed to a young couple to her right.
“Nice to meet you,” I greeted them, though I was still worried about why I was driving Edward and his family apart.
“Wow. She just shows up and everybody is all happy to see her, yet nobody cares about why she’s here!” Rosalie sneered from beside Emmett.
“Um…” I said trying to think of the best way to explain.
“She found the things Edward hid under her floorboards,” Alice interjected. “She wants to find him. I wanted to come with her, but she won’t let me. So, I figure the best move would be to change her like we should have done a long time ago.”
“Does that mean he will stop hiding away and come back to us?” Rosalie asked excitedly.
Everybody keeps saying he’s hiding away. Why? Did this have to do with his “distractions?”
Before I could ask about Edward, Carlisle spoke. “Bella, you do know the consequences of being changed, right?”
“Yes. And I’m willing to accept them to find Edward.”
“Ok. When do you want to do this?”
“As soon as possible,” I said confidently.
