Edward's POV

I was waiting for him to kill me. I wanted him to end my poor excuse for a life. I wouldn't even put up a fight, I really didn't care anymore.

Jacob was lying next to Bella, begging her to come back to him. He wouldn't give up on her and for some reason, I respected him for that. He was desperately pumping her heart, forcing her to come back. He didn't want to live in a world without her. He loved her, just like I did.

I took a deep breath before turning back to Sam. He was contemplating whether to kill me, he didn't want to cause a war. He knew when my family arrived, they would fight him. I knew that too. They wouldn't stop, wouldn't believe that I made him do this.

"Sam, do it, please," I begged.

He looked straight at me and even in his wolf form, I could see the clear anguish in his eyes. It was a huge dilemma for him. He did want to kill me, more than anything - I was a vampire after all and he saw what I did to Bella. But he didn't want to start a war and have this on his conscience

My heart flared at the pain of Bella dead. It started to set in my brain how much it hurt. I had killed my one true love. What kind of monster was I? I knew the answer to that. I was the worst monster there was. As soon as someone came close to me, I killed them. That was the simple answer.

"Please Sam. If it makes you feel better, you can tell my family I made you do it. That I tried to fight you and you were simply defending yourself. I don't care, just say whatever fits," I pleaded.

He nodded and began to prepare himself to end my life. I closed my eyes and waited in anticipation. My ears flicked at the new sound roaring to my ears, like an alarm to my brain. And I slowly rose to my feet.

Alice POV

My brain took over new images, images of Edward lying motionless on the beach. Him, dying without his loved ones near, totally alone. I gasped and fell to the ground. Jasper's warm arms held my close as I shook uncontrollably.

"Alice, Alice, what is it? Please, tell us," Jasper begged.

"It, It's Edward."

"What? What about Edward?"

"He, we, we have to run. Before it's too late. We can't be too late."

And with that we ran faster than our legs could contain us. Edward was our family and we weren't going to let him go down without a fight. He was the closest thing I had to a brother, he was my brother. I couldn't let him die. I couldn't. How could I leave him to die. All those times he was there for me, this was the one time I really needed to be there for him. I would protect him at all costs.

But if he was going to die, did that mean that Bella was alive? Did he get there in time to save her? We couldn't lose two family members in one day, I didn't know if we could truly take that kind of pain.

"Come'on everyone. We have to get there on time," I shouted, louder than I really needed to do, but I was too scared to worry about that.

Edward's POV

I didn't know if I was imagining things. Was my ears playing tricks on me? Or was I actually dead now? So many questions to be answered.

I turned around to face the source of the sound. And gasped as I realized I wasn't deceiving myself.
