What I'd Done
She never understood why he was wasting his time on that stupid little girl, but it came back to hurt her. She still couldn't understand, but she whole-heartedly regreted that phone call. Formerly titled "Regrets"
This was a lot of fun to write. I find Rosalie to be one of the most complex characters in the series, and I can't wait to find out more about her. I don't own any of this. Stephenie Meyer, supreme ruler of the universe, does. And a huge thank you goes out to my beta, Sara, for helping me out with this story. I really appreciated, and still appreciate, it.

I couldn’t believe what I’d done. Everyone warned me that I shouldn’t do it; that there would be consequences, but I just couldn’t believe it. He couldn’t love her! He wouldn’t even change her! He couldn’t love her so much that he would resort to the Volturi if he thought she was dead. But he did. I just didn’t get it. I just didn’t get what he saw in her. She wasn’t anything spectacular. Not extraordinarily attractive, definitely not coordinated, and nowhere near as smart as a vampire. She was nothing compared to me. She was just your average human, who happened to be surrounded by vampires. But she saved Edward, and for that I owed her.
Of course, by telling Edward that she was dead, I not only sent him off to his death, but put both of them through an experience that would haunt them for the rest of their lives. And though I never liked her for what she did to our family, she was still a perfectly nice person. She didn’t deserve to go through that. No one did.
I would be shocked if she forgave me. After all, I did send the man she loved off to his death and nearly put her to death, as well, by sending her to a family of vampires that would not mind having her as a snack. Not to mention the fact that I have treated her like dirt since the day she entered my life. I would never forgive me, were I in her shoes. I was horrible. A monster. She wouldn’t forgive me; no sane person would forgive me.
Their flight was supposed to land soon, and the rest of the family had gone inside to meet them at the gate. But I decided that it would be better if I waited in the car. Edward would be mad, and he had other people to tend to. Of course, my staying in the car came with Emmett’s staying in the car. This, of course, was a good thing. I leaned over to his shoulder and sighed. He just rubbed my back. At least someone would love me through all of this.
The entire family was flaming mad when they’d realized what I had done. Alice was already in Forks when I did it; she already knew that Bella was alive and as well as she could be with such a broken heart. My brother was running off to his death and she was the only one who could stop it. I couldn’t say that I liked her yet; she had caused nothing but chaos in our lives. But I owed her. And Edward loved her. And for that she needed to be tolerated.
I gazed into the sky in attempt to see the plane coming in. However, even with my enhanced vision, I couldn’t see it through the heavy cloud cover. I wasn’t ready for Edward yet, anyway.
I continued searching the sky until I started to see the figure fading out of the cloud. I gulped. Edward would be furious. He’d kill me for being so stupid. Which I couldn’t really blame him for. I couldn’t believe what I’d done.
