Hollowed Existences

~spoiler warning~ What would have happened if Bella hadn't jumped?...

I sort of just started this little story for fun because I wanted to see as to where it might go. hehe xD. The chapters are going to be short, why? I don't know. My brain doesn't tell me its reasoning most of the time but I bet it has something to do with the fact that if i squished it all together it wouldn't sound right. Thats my guess. hehe xD. Oh and of course, I don't own Twilight, New Moon, or any of the characters. They are all Stephenie Meyer's creations. ^_^

As I entered my room after that uneventful day at school I sat down at my desk and turned on my computer. As it was booting up, I began to wonder why Charlie hadn’t mentioned about the letter last night. I was curious as to what the answer was but I wasn’t going to disturb him at work so it would have to wait until he came home.

Once the computer was up and running, I went online to check my mail. Of course there was one from Renee so I opened it and read the contents. It was the same email as the others. She just wanted to know how I was and how school was going. You know, the basics. I told her that I was fine, which she would take as a clear statement that I was miserable. I said I aced my Calculus test with a ninety-five percent and my English test with a ninety-eight percent. Mom would be happy that I passed my tests with A’s but I knew she’d be happier if I failed every class for a whole year just to be told by Charlie that I had smiled a real smile and was my old happy go lucky self again. I sighed and clicked the send button. Just then I noticed another email whose screen name I did not recognize but knew it wasn’t spam. I clicked it and it opened to show me that Alice had emailed me. I quickly scanned it, making sure that nothing like ‘killed’ or ‘vampires on their way’ were shown, then I re-read it but took in every thing this time.

Hello Bella. I was told that this was your email so I decided to email you to ask how you are. No I haven’t seen anything that says someone’s life is in danger, just wanted to see how you are. I truly hope to see you again but until Edward, I winced, says I can see you then I don’t think I should come unless I want an argument with disastrous results to take place. How is Charlie doing? Renee? I am sorry Bella. I must go, Jasper is here and he wants me to come out with him tonight to see a movie. Sounds so sweet doesn’t it? Bye Bella. Hope to hear from you soon. Love you. Alice.

My mouth was hanging slightly open. I couldn’t believe that she wasn’t allowed to see me. That was ridiculous but then again it sounded like… him. I still couldn’t say his name. I quickly thought up of something to write, but when I wrote it, it sounded like I was happy. I quickly deleted it. I was tired of lying and I most certainly didn’t want to lie to Alice. When I knew what I was going to write I knew that it would probably leave her mouth hanging open slightly and would probably send her all the way over here just to check on me. But as I thought about how much distress that might put her in, I decided against it. I would write the best thing I could write… a lie.

Hey Alice! It’s nice to hear from you. I am fine and so are Charlie and Renee. No more near death accidents. Hope you along with the rest of the family are doing well. Hope you had fun at the movie theater. Love Bella.

I sent it. I knew it wasn’t much to write but the shorter it was, the less she knew, which meant the better off we all were. As I was about to turn off the computer I saw I had a new message. She couldn’t have replied that quickly. But as I looked, my suspicions were correct.

Bella! I’m happy to hear you all are okay! How is school going for you? Please tell me you are doing well. Wow, no more near death accidents! Not to sound mean or anything but it sounds like you may have one coming up. Hold on; let me check… nope, I did not see anything… well… I did see a white room with you in white clothing. What is that all about? We are all doing well, except for Edward,I flinched, of course but that is to be expected. I’m surprised you sound so content. I would have thought you’d be sadder. Hmm, maybe I’m wrong. Well, the movie theater was GREAT!! We saw this movie, which was called Carousel Night. It was of course a love story, just like Jasper to pick something like that for me. It was long but it was worth it. Love You Always. Alice.

I stared at the message thought about the ‘white room’. Could that be the mental institutions white walls’? If they were, does that mean I’m going to refuse to leave Forks? I thought about that and then concluded that yes, I was going to stay here and put up a fight, but I was not going to tell Alice that. I would just play ignorant. I also couldn’t understand what was making… him, not well. I went to reply.

Hey Alice… again. Lol. I wasn’t expecting you to be online right now. Oh well. Yes, I am happy and content. I have no idea as to what the ‘white room and white clothes’ are. Hmm, I have to think about that and I’ll let you know if I come up with anything. He isn’t well? What’s wrong with him? Sounds like you and Jasper are completely in tune with each other. Lol. Although the movie choice… uh, I haven’t even heard of it so I wouldn’t know. Lol. Love Bella.

I scanned it to make sure there were no errors and then sent it. Not 2 minutes later there was another reply. I was just going to answer this one and then leave. I couldn’t take any more questions or respond to any of them.

Bella, I am glad to hear that all is well with you and that you are not taxing from Edwards, I flinched yet again, mistake. I’m so sorry that we all left without saying goodbye but he insisted saying that a clean cut would heal quicker. I don’t know where he comes up with some of his ridiculous ideas and I don’t care either. All I can say is that if Carlisle hadn’t said that it was Edwards, flinch, decision I would have come to say goodbye, but I couldn’t go against Carlisle’s’ word. Okay, if you know anything about the white room, please do inform me. I am very curious as to what place it is and what you are doing there. It has me befuddled. Bella! How can you not have heard of Carousel Night?! Even that movie would have been heard about in Forks. I’m surprised you haven’t heard it mentioned in school or something. I’m just saying that it is up for so many awards it has my head spinning. What? Have you been living in a cocoon for the past month or so? Lol. Love You Always. Alice.

Yes, I definitely wasn’t going to answer that message. I decided to just tell Alice I had to go.

Alice, I have to go. I’ll reply next time I go online. Love Bella.

I sent it and then quickly signed off and shut the computer down. Alice had hit the mark. I had been living in a cocoon for not only the past month, but for the past few months. I just hoped she wouldn’t catch on that she had hit the mark. I got off the chair and decided that I should begin my homework. I knew it wouldn’t get done tonight because Charlie and I were going to have a fight and I could almost 100% guarantee that it would involve something major happening. Hopefully I could prove Alice’s vision incorrect and she would see me staying here after all. My will was stronger than Charlie’s wasn’t it?
