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.
9. Epilougue:Beware of Alice
Rating 5/5 Word Count 815 Review this Chapter
Eventually we had to come back to reality. We went back to the airport and got tickets to Seattle. We didn’t want to go to Denali. We all ready knew that Alice would tell the rest of the family and they would be in Forks waiting for us once the decision was made.
When we got to Seattle, we quickly got into Edward’s Volvo and drove back towards Forks. But we didn’t head toward the house. We headed toward that little spot near a trail that we had been to what seemed like ages ago. I headed straight for the path that would lead us straight to the meadow, but Edward paused. After about a minute of looking through the car, he finally came out, a nervous look on his face.
“What were you looking for?” I asked.
“Nothing.” He burst into a huge grin as he answered.
I knew something was up, but I knew he wasn’t going to tell me what. So we ran up to the meadow and just lay there, a small bit of sun coming through the trees, making our skin sparkle.
After about an hour, Edward sat up. I looked at him questioningly, sitting up too. He stood up pulling me with him, before getting down on one knee.
My eyes widened, my breathing quickened, and my heartbeat sped up as I realized what he was about to do.
“Yes?” I whispered, barely able to get the word out.
“Bella, I love you more than life itself. I want to be with you for the rest of eternity. Will you marry me?”
I didn’t even have to think about it. I had all ready changed into a vampire for him, marriage was nothing compared to that. I wasn’t able to speak, so I simply nodded. He pulled a glorious gold ring out of his pocket and slipped it onto my finger.
It was so beautiful. In the middle was a giant topaz while the band held many tiny diamonds. He must have spent a lot of money on it, but I expected that to happen if we ever got married.
He stood up, wrapped his arms around me and kissed me.
When he finally pulled away, he whispered three words. “I love you.”
I smiled and repeated the same three words. We stayed in the meadow for the next hour. When we finally left, it was only to get in the car and to our destination before Alice could.
We had decided that we didn’t want anything big, so we were going to Vegas to get married.
Edward drove as fast as he could down the highway. It was nearing morning when we got there. Edward parked the car outside the nearest wedding chapel. We were almost to the door when somebody pulled on the back of or jackets, holding us back.
“Where do you think you’re going?” a voice I knew all too well asked. We both turned our heads to see little Alice holding us back.
“Run!” I yelled. Edward and I slipped out of our jackets and ran as fast as we could behind buildings where nobody was. We ran around to the side of the chapel. The car was on the other side. We took a chance and ran through the dim morning light, too fast for any human to see. We were in the car with the doors locked and Alice yelling and banging on the door within a few seconds.
“First you deprive me of saying goodbye when you decide to leave and now I can’t do your wedding? How cruel are you?! Let me in! I’m not letting you get married in Vegas! Open this door! Edward! Bella please open this door! You don’t want to just get married at some tiny place in Las Vegas! You should have a wedding to remember! Please, please, PLEASE, open the door!!!!” Alice’s ranting went on for several more minutes while we tried to figure out what to do about the angry little pixie outside the car.
“What are we going to do? She’ll catch us. We can’t escape!” I didn’t want to deal with the wrath of Alice.
“I guess we’ll have to give in.” Edward sighed in defeat.
I didn’t like it, but I had no chance against Alice. “Fine!” I glared at Alice as Edward unlocked the doors and Alice hopped in with a huge grin on her face. I folded my arms across my chest and stared through the windshield.
“Oh don’t be that way Bella! This is for your own good!” she said.
“Whatever you say.” I replied as we drove off back towards the place that would always be my home.
