1. The phone call

“So.” She giggled quietly

I groaned, I didn’t want to have this conversation. At least not know. She probably just “saw” everything anyway. “Bella, please, I want to know all the dirty details. We can giggle about it and just have girl time. Please!”

“Must we? I mean didn't you already ‘see’ everything. Why must we talk and giggle about it?”

“Because it’ll be fun and you’re a girl you’re supposed to do that, anyway, I think. And remember I don’t have any memories as a human.

“Plus I didn’t really see that much just bits and pieces. Remember I can’t see werewolves.” She giggled as she spoke. Why did she always use the “I don’t remember being a human excuse” on me.

“What bits and pieces did you see, Alice?” Not really wanting to know the answer.

“Oh, nothing much, just the usual. You and him… making out… in the middle of the kitchen.” She grinned so big, it seemed it would hurt her face even as a vampire. I ignored the last part and tried to figure out what she meant by “the usual”.

“Alice, what do you mean… the usual?” I tried not to sound too worried.

She sighed. “Let’s just say that that was just the beginning, you’ll being doing a lot more of that.” She giggled and I blushed redder than a tomato.

“Since you and Edward used to… do it … all … the time….” She slowed and spoke softer after each word. I threw my arms around my chest as the hole opened itself.

“Oh, I’m so sorry Bella,… I don’t know why I said that.” She threw her self at me and hugged me tightly.

“Alice” I asked softly starting to sob. I didn’t know if I could ask the question, but I had to.

“Alice, why did Edward have to leave?” I mean I know he didn’t love me, but why did he have to lie to me… pretending to love me?”

“Oh, Bella, I don’t think I can answer that question. Edward needs to be the one to answer that question, not me.” She still hugged me as she spoke.

“But I don’t think you’ll have to wait too much longer.” I felt her face come to a smile.

“What is that supposed to mean, Alice? Is he coming back?” I shouted at the top of my lungs and pulled away from her.

“I don’t know my visions are a bit jumbled up and they keep changing, he can’t make up his mind. But I have some of him coming back and others of him calling you to check on you, but keeping silent. Right now though, I just don’t know anymore.”

“Your lying, Alice! You do know!”

My legs then gave out on me. I didn’t know what to think, my legs just couldn’t support me anymore. I sank to my knees and began to sob again.

I was getting involved with Jacob and Edward could be coming back. No, he was not coming back, he doesn’t love me anymore. Alice was wrong this time, I knew in my heart he wouldn’t come back for me.

The phone ringing interrupted my thoughts and made me jump. Alice softly laughed at me. “It’s just the phone ,Bella. Well,… go get it, GO! Pick it up!” she seemed a little to happy about the phone ringing. I was probably just her enemy, Jacob Black.

I ran to the kitchen to pick it up before they hung up. Alice followed me in, but hovered at the doorway, biting her lip.

I picked up the phone. “Hello” I spoke so softly I was afraid they might not hear me. There was silence on the other end.

“Hello… is anyone there?” I spoke a bit louder this time.

That’s when it hit me… I remember what Alice had said earlier about her visions… I guessed that was why she was so eager for me to answer the phone. I knew who it was and why they wouldn’t talk. Well if he wouldn’t talk, I would!

“Edward, I know it’s you! Just say something! If you have enough courage to call, then at least say something to me! And don’t you dare tell me it’s a wrong number!” I couldn’t believe how angry I was with him, right now. So I continued to yell at him.

“What are you do calling me anyway, you DON’T LOVE ME! YOU LEFT ME, REMEMBER! DAMMIT SAY SOMETHING! Alice warned me but… but…” I dropped the phone and ran up the stairs to my room so I could cry my eyes out. I heard Alice pick up the phone and begin to talk as I ran up the stairs.

Alice’s POV

I picked up the phone and braced my self for his wrath. “Edward, at least say something to me for a moment, I haven’t heard your voice in over five months now. Please at least say hi!”

I missed by brother so much, when I did see him he just mopped around and barely spoke a full sentence.

“Edward, please!” I begged.

“Hi Alice.” He spoke so softly I barely heard him with my vampire ears. Then his tone changed and he began to yell at me.

“Alice, what the world are you doing there? We were supposed to never return to her. Why did you break your promise?”

“I had vision of her jumping off a cliff and dieing. But she got saved by strong friend and lived.” I didn’t feel like mentioning that I believed the proper term was boyfriend.

“By the way I also had visions of you coming to Bella!” there was a silence and I decided to be little more persuasive.

“EDWARD JUST GET YOUR ASS BACK HERE! SHE NEEDS YOU! YOU NEED HER!” Then there was a dial tone on the other end.

Edward’s POV

For the past day I had been arguing with myself to just call Bella, just to check how to check how she was, to hear her voice once again. I could do this every month for a while, just checking on her. I wouldn’t say anything to her; I could pretend it was a wrong number.

Ok, that decided it for me, I gave in, and I had to hear her voice again. At vampire speed I picked up my phone and dialed the still familiar number. As it began ringing I was already beginning to feel relaxed and hole; somewhat.

Then after the ninth ring, the very familiar voice, the one I had been dieing to hear for months spoke quietly on the other end. I felt complete for the moment. “Hello.” I wanted to respond and say hello back and to tell her I was so sorry and that I loved her and always would. But I reluctantly kept silent.

“Hello, is anyone there?” there was a long silence again and then a loud sigh before she spoke again.

“Edward, I know it’s you!” Wow how in world did she know that. I was baffled as she continued to yell at me.

“Just say something! If you had enough courage to call then at least say something, don’t you dare say it’s a wrong number!”

Wow, she was good. But I couldn’t give in; she would recognize my voice in a second. I wanted badly to answer her, but I couldn’t, plus I was too surprised to speak. She continued, getting slightly louder as she spoke.

“What are you doing calling me anyway? YOU DON’T LOVE ME, YOU LEFT ME, REMEMBER! DAMMIT SAY SOMETHING! Alice warned me but… but…” I heard the phone hit the floor.

I was shocked and hurt by her words. At least I knew how she knew… Alice! But I didn’t care about that right now. She really believed me… that I didn’t love her anymore, that that is why I left her (the most absurd reason on the planet).

My angel was angry with me, although I couldn’t blame her. God, why did Alice have to tell her? OH, WHY DID I CALL?”

I heard Alice pick up the phone off the floor. “Edward, at least talk to me for a moment, I haven’t heard your voice for five months now. At least say hi!” she begged. All I wanted to do was scream at her, but I really didn’t have it in me.

“Edward, please!” she was still begging me to talk. I should at least say hi, she was, my sister.

“Hi Alice.” Then all of a sudden I got the urge just to start yelling at her. I seemed to get so angry.

“Alice what are you doing there? We were supposed to never return to her! Why did you break your promise?”

I really didn’t know if she would tell me the truth. I really wished that I could hear her mind right now.

“I had a vision of Bella jumping off a cliff for fun and dieing. But she was saved by a strong friend and lived.”

That stopped me. What strong friends, who saved Bella? I bet it was that vile Mike Newton. At least he would be better than Jacob Black, who by now should be a werewolf. They are both better for Bella than me, whether I liked it or not, it was the truth.

My thoughts were interrupted by Alice speaking again. “By the way, I also had a vision of you coming back to Bella!”

Of course… of all the visions to have. I hadn’t even made that decision yet and I wasn’t about to have this discussion with her. This when she began to scream at me.

“EDWARD, JUST GET YOUR ASS BACK HERE! SHE NEEDS YOU! YOU NEED HER!”

I couldn’t let her go on any further. I closed my phone and threw it against the wall. It shattered into pieces. Thank goodness, I had a second cell phone and for that exact reason.

I curled up in a ball to think. Did Bella really need me? She had to be better without me. Yes, I needed her, but my needs didn’t matter.

I can’t think about this anymore, I needed to go kill something. I needed to hunt. I hadn’t hunt in more than a month. I really didn’t want to or really need to when the only thing more important than my family, I had left. I ran out of the basement and to the nearest forest avoiding all humans.
