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.

Carlisle was set to be the one to change me. Alice couldn’t do it because she was not as practiced as Carlisle and might lose control.
He was all set to change me when I remembered something I had to do.
“Alice, can I use your phone?”
“Sure, whatever you need.” She handed me the small silver device. I dialed the number and waited for someone to answer.
“Hello?” the husky voice I was looking for answered.
“Hey Bells! So how’s your dorm? I came up to see you before you left, but Charlie said you had to go early. You can come down this weekend though, right?”
“Jake, I can’t come. I’m not even at college. I-“
“Don’t tell him!” I heard Alice yell behind me.
“You what? Why aren’t you at college? And who was that that just told you not to tell me something?” Jake asked through the phone.
I hesitated. I had been planning on telling Jake everything, but now I wasn’t so sure.
“You would never hurt me right?” I had to make sure that he would not try to attack me or the Cullens after the treaty was broken.
“Of course not! Why would I ever do that?!” he sounded offended.
“What if the treaty was broken?” I asked cautiously
“Bella! Didn’t I just tell you not to tell him anything?” Alice was extremely angry.
What I was trying to tell Jacob must have clicked in his mind then because he reacted very strongly. “WHAT?! You’re with those filthy leeches aren’t you? And they’re going to turn you into one of them?! Where are you? I’m coming to get you.” I could hear him stomping around his house looking for his car keys.
“You’ll never get to me in time. I want to be changed. It’s the only way I’ll ever find him.”
“Find him? Why would you want to do that after what he did to you? He doesn’t love you Bella! I do!”
“I’m not so sure of that any more, Jacob. He might still love me. I have to find him.”
“Bella, think of Charlie and Renee! Think of your friends! Think of me!” Jake was pulling every last string to try to get me to stay human. It was hard to turn away from the things he was talking about, but I had to find Edward. I had to be with him.
“I am thinking of everybody!” I tried to calm him down. Everyone human around me was still in danger. Once I was a vampire they would be safe. I couldn’t stand to see them hurt. “Victoria is still out there! Everybody I know is in danger while I’m still human! This is for the best. I need to find Edward. I love him. I’m sorry Jake.” I hung up then because I couldn’t take any more of Jacob trying to talk me out of this. I had made my decision, and I was going to follow through with it.
“Are you ready Bella?” Carlisle asked.
“Yes,” I said as I sauntered forward to be changed into the beautiful creature I had dreamed of.
For the next three days I endured the immense pain of the venom’s fire. I did not complain, though. This is what I had wanted. If this meant I could find Edward and be with him for eternity, I would take any pain.
I awoke to see everybody standing over me, completely silent.
Although nobody spoke, I could hear everything. The footsteps of animals in the Alaskan woods, the quiet rustle of the trees as the wind whisked through them; things that would not have been audible to my human ears.
Alice had a small mirror in her hand. She held it up to me.
“Whoa.” My voice sounded like bells when I spoke.
I was beautiful. Nowhere near as beautiful as the incarnation of pure beauty which was Rosalie, but like Alice or Esme.
Carlisle and Alice took me hunting out in the Alaskan Wilderness outside the house. I relished the taste of the deer’s blood as it ran down my throat. It did not smell nearly as good as the hikers around here, but it quenched my thirst.
Everyone commended me on my self-control. Somehow I had been able to resist hunting the hikers that were all around here.
“Do you think I can start looking now?” I asked Alice after about a month.
“I guess. Are you sure you don’t want me to come with you?” she tried one last time to change my mind.
“He’ll hear your thoughts, Alice. I can’t risk that.”
“Fine!” She crossed her arms and glared at the wall.
“Can I borrow your phone again Alice?”
She turned toward me and her face smoothed out. “As long as you’re not calling any werewolves to tell them something that could get us attacked,” she warned me as she handed me her cell phone.
“I won’t.” I opened the phone and scrolled through the contacts. I found the one I wanted and hit the little green SEND button.
I was very nervous. I know Alice had said that he wouldn’t answer his phone, but I had to try. If he didn’t answer, I would leave a message. There might be a chance to find out where he was.
I made a small promise to myself as I waited to see if he would actually pick up. If he started to try to find out where I was, I would hang up. I didn’t want to give him the chance to run away from me.
I gasped as I heard his velvet voice come through the phone.
