This song kind of has no relation to this but it should be a classic song you think of when you sing Christmas carols.

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year is over
A new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
The war is so long
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear

And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year is over
A new one just begun
And so happy Christmas
We hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear And so this is Christmas
And what have we done
Another year is over
A new one just begun

Previously in The Ties That Can’t Break- They were spending Christmas with Edward and Alice’s family. This is going to be one hell of a family affair. It will be a Christmas no one will ever be able to forget.

Chapter 7- And So This Is Christmas, and What Have We Done

Bella placed a huge red bow on top of her for Edward she just hoped he liked it. Jazz and Bella walked up the path way and rang the doorbell. An older woman with the same copper color as Edward with a few grays opened the door, “Oh you must be Jasper and Isabella, Alice has told us so much about the two of you. Come in, Come in dears.” She was most definitely Edward’s mother, and Alice’s grandmother.

“You’re very beautiful, honey” the woman said to Bella. “Thank you” Bella said in a sweet polite tone. “I’m Esme but please call me Mom, everyone seems to” Esme or rather Mom laughed at that.

The house looked amazing for the holiday, decked in red and green for the Christmas festivities. She was greeted by Carlisle, he told her to call him dad. He was without a doubt Edward’s father; Bella could see where Edward got his handsome looks from. His older brother Emmett greeted her with a huge bear hug, he even reminded her of a large bear of a man. He looked the complete opposite of Edward. If Bella was human the hug might have even hurt a little. Alice jumped at Bella next to give her a hug and whispered in her ear that Edward was in the Kitchen, not that she didn’t know already. There was a woman in the kitchen talking to Edward; it was Rosalie Emmett’s wife. When Bella walked into the Kitchen she immediately noticed how gorgeous Rosalie was but Rosalie immediately exited the room glaring at her. What was her problem, I haven’t even said anything to her yet and she dislikes me. Wait until I do then she really will hate me, Bella thought and a small smirk appeared upon her lips.

“So Edward your gift is outside” Bella said into his left ear. “What do you mean its outside?” Edward asked slightly befuddled.

“I meant what I said, it is outside” Bella saw no one coming so she gave Edward a peck on the lips making sure that no one was even near the kitchen at the time. Bella walked back into the living room and sat next to Jazz and Alice on the sofa. If you could even say that Rosalie was glaring even more would be an understatement. Edward was going straight to the door to see what Bella was talking about, but as he went to reach for the doorknob it turned from the other side. The door then opened to reveal a beautiful tall blonde woman.

“Tanya” Matt said in utter shock at why his ex-wife was standing in front of him. “Mom” Jenna said in disbelief. “Isabella” Tanya said her voice full of venom. “What is going on?” Rosalie asked.

“Get out Isabella and Jasper now before I make you leave” Tanya’s eyes were fill to the rim with rage. “Why should we, we were invited and you obviously weren’t?” Bella said with a large grin on her face.

Tanya ran from the door way to where Bella was standing and rammed her up against the wall. Now they no longer looked like two women in a heated argument but two animals fighting for their territory and ready to kill each other. “Tanya” Jazz said right before he pulled her off of Bella.

Jazz and Bella were standing side by side. “I want you two to stay away from my family for good” Tanya was trying to force them out of the house and make sure they never come back.

“You have got to be kidding me, a hybrid, does The Order even know about Alice?” Bella screamed at Tanya. “No, I was protecting my family from them” Tanya said.

“Great parental values you have going on! What were you going to do when she turns 18 and the vampire genes finally dominate the human ones? She’ll just have cravings to kill all her friends. Oh and where were you? I didn’t see you protecting your family we took over that role” Bella was half sarcastic, half worried. Alice was a hybrid. There was a reason The Order kept knowledge of all existing hybrids. They are extremely strong but at the same time stupid with all their human conflicting emotions.

Jazz, what the hell should we do? Bella thought to Jasper. We aren’t going anywhere Jazz answered Bella. Jazz never trusted Tanya she always had a hidden agenda.

“So, I already told you to leave, I’m not asking you I’m telling you to leave.” Tanya had grown frustrated with Jasper and Isabella. “Only Edward has the right to kick us out of his own home” Bella said looking at Edward who had been quite for a while now.

“You lied to me Tanya our whole relationship was built on a lie. Bella never lied to me ever. Bella, I’m so sorry but for right now, I can’t be with you not after hearing this and I hope that you don’t hate me for that” Edward looked like he was on the verge of a major mental break down.

His family just looked on unsure of what had just gone on but to afraid to ask or find the answer except Rosalie. “Can someone explain what the hell is going on here, please inform me of the nonsense all of you were talking about?” Rosalie asked.

“Not now Aunt Rose” Alice said. Everything had been perfect. Now I find out that my mother is a vampire as well as most of the other important people in my life seem to be. So that inevitably makes me half vampire and half human. A hybrid was what they called it, How can you be something else and not even be aware of it? So I ran out the front door. I wasn’t looking where I was going and I didn’t care. The surroundings just kept moving by but not once did I stop to take notice as to where I was. I heard a noise and there must have been a rock on the ground because the next thing I know I fell to the floor. It was then that I realized I was in a forest. There were trees upon trees that seemed to span on forever. I was officially lost. There was something moving in front of me and before I could let out a scream I felt sharp pain in the back of my head and then all I saw was black.

“I will go find my daughter” Tanya said. “Oh, no you will not” Bella said. “You put her into this predicament, I am pretty sure she doesn’t need you right now .So my sister and I will go and find my girlfriend” Jazz said clearly upset with Tanya. Jasper dragged Bella out the door with him. So they began running trying to pick up Alice’s scent.

Bella what have we gotten ourselves into this time? Jazz asked Bella in a conversation that only the two of them heard. Do you love Alice? Bella countered back. Of course I do, how can you question that I don’t love her Bella? Jasper couldn’t believe that Bella could doubt his love for Alice; it was like saying that Bella didn’t love Edward with her whole existence. That makes it all the more simpler to answer your question. We stay, and whatever comes our way we will fight together. If it was me Jazzy you would do the same maybe with a little more sarcasm. Bella smiled to her brother. Ha very funny, Bella Jasper said.

They split up to cover more distance. Jasper picked up Alice’s scent near a large mass of trees in the woods. There was something else with her. The scent was not of a human nor was it of a vampire. It was something else entirely but he had smelled it once before when they had the mystery home invader.

Bella, I found her but something is there with her. I don’t know what it is but it is one in the same to whatever came into the house and left the note, Jasper called out to Bella through his mind. I’m coming Jazz, Bella called back. Bella found Jasper and they ran toward the direction where Alice’s was coming from.

Alice’s hands and feet were tied with rope and she was blind folded. There was a tall woman not far from us. Jasper went over to Alice and untied her hands and feet but the unknown female came closer to them. That was when Bella saw the appearance of the woman, Bella gasped. It couldn’t be her. She had thought she died years ago at her own hands none the less. How is it that she is still alive after already dying?

“Maria” Bella whispered reassuring herself that her eyes weren’t playing tricks on her. “How are you standing in front of me? I thought I killed you” Bella chocked out. “You see Isabella; technically I never in fact died that night the magic flowing through my veins protected me from my impending death.”

“What do you mean magic?” Jasper asked as he carried the unawake Alice in his arms. “My handsome Jasper it turned out that I had witch blood and please put down your little pet, wait rather hybrid. You never did like to abide by the rules Jasper” Maria said

Bella, take Alice home and I’ll deal with Maria, Jasper said. No I’m staying, Bella answered defiantly. We don’t know how strong Maria is or what emotions she has bottled up I won’t let her hurt you Bella told Jasper mentally pouring all her love for her brother into that one sentence.

“I’ve killed a few of your kind throughout my immortal life Jasper and I can’t say I won’t do it again if you don’t come with me” Maria smirked an evil grin. “Go ahead Maria kill me” Jasper answered he was done with Maria’s vindictive ways.

“No I meant Isabella, your precious perfect little sister who can do no wrong in your eyes” Maria spat out with so much jealousy emanating from her that she looked like she was turning red from all the rage.

Jazz, run now, Bella yelled to Jasper through her thoughts. They ran with Jasper carrying the sleeping Alice in his arms. In a matter of minutes they were back at Edward’s home. Bella was glad to be back to where she truly felt safe from the outside world mainly because Edward made her feel emotionally and mentally safe even though she was stronger than he was.

Bella opened the door to reveal Tanya and Edward hugging and as if right on queue Tanya kissed Edward hard on the lips. It was like a blow to the stomach for Bella. She was hurt beyond compare. And so this is what heartbreak feels like. Merry Christmas Bella, she thought to herself.
