I am not sure how long I sat there, uncomfortable, alone, rocking myself against the sharp boulders at the edge of the forest. I looked up for the first time in what seemed like hours and took in a breath taking site. I stretched my legs over the edge of the cliff and peered down at the mountain side. A warm breeze enchanted the air yet all I could taste was a dry and stale sky. The sun hunched over the edge and twilight crept closer. I had been dry sobbing for quite some time and had lost track of time. I was amazed at how much the holes in my chest hurt. Every sensation was magnified. I was in agony. I felt so alone. Now more than ever I yearned for my Edward.

What good were sights like these with the powerful sensations I possessed?

I felt so lost without Edward.

Why couldn't he be here?

He had chosen to leave my side and now I was nothing without him. He had chosen to let me wither away and die. A sense of determination rose within me and I began to feel a surge of energy. I believe it came from the anger that was growing within. I had seemed to have a little problem with my temper as a human. But now I could feel the heat rising from within, my cheeks became red and a burning sensation crept from my chest out towards all of my extremities. My hands began to radiate an orange glow. I turned my attention over towards a tree in the distance. I focused on the rage burning inside me and projected it out towards the branches ahead. A sharp blast of light sheathed with flames shot out, scorching the leaves on the tree. Nothing remained. The branches were barren and empty.

Just like my heart.

A renewed feeling of satisfaction settled within me. My arms felt re-energized. I may be alone but I felt relieved after releasing that small burst of power. Again the longing to share my experiences rose from the pit of my stomach. I closed my eyes and imagined my angel's crooked smile and his messy tan curls gently floating in the breeze. I mentally sent out a feeling of love and hope. Out of instinct I began to hope. I yearned to be with him, my Edward. I brief image flashed before my eyes. Edward was curled up in a ball, his eyes sagged down by deep, dark circles. His hair was a frightened mop of tangles. He looked like he had been rocking religiously for days. I called to my angel.

Edward!

A sense of recognition played across his face. His eyes lit up and his head jerked towards me.

He heard me?

A sense of exhilaration surged from within me. I jumped for joy at my little hallucination. But as quick as I had felt the ability to hope, the rage had returned.

You bastard, you hurt me. How could you, Edward?

I beamed these thoughts out with my mind and realized instantly that this delusion was growing. Edward's eyes turned from gleeful in anticipation to an agonizing hurt. Despair ridden Edward's lips turned down as his crooked smile disappeared and his shoulders sunk.

If this were real, then good. I was glad he felt bad. He deserved to feel what I feel.

A stirring in the leaves to my left caught my attention. A thick musky smell shocked my nose.

Werewolves.

I could pick out two distinct scents. One was an alpha male and the other his second in command. Yet there was something familiar about their smell. Although I had minimal experience with being a vampire I knew there was something distinct about these two. They must be Quiluetes. Sam and Jacob soon appeared in the clearing. A smile sprang to my face and I ran up to Jacob in an effort to embrace him. He was shocked by forwardness and slowly reacted by pulling his arms around me. I heard him giggle.

"Ohhh, Bella! You stink!" I pulled back from Jacob and met his gaze as he proceeded to squeeze my toned shoulder. I looked from Jacob to his leader, Sam.

Sam did not appear as happy to see me. His face was scrunched up in an upsetting frown. Jacob came to order and became very serious.

"Bella what have you been doing all of this time?" He pondered.

I hadn't realized that so many days, no weeks had gone by.

Jacob began to stare and I noticed a ripple go through him. He had asked me a question.

"Well time just flies when you're having fun." I responded.

A look passed between Sam and Jacob.

"What! Am I missing something?" I interrupted their stare.

Sam spoke up first, "Bella we are concerned about how you are coping with the change. We were worried that you were alone and..."

Jacob jumped in, "...and that you might be tempted to turn towards the dark side."

I grinned.

Sam began to look uneasy.

"Everything will be fine now that you are here, Jacob." I felt relieved to have been lifted from my cloud of depression.

But as quickly as I had begun to relish in relief, Sam speaks the words I didn't want to here.

"Well if you are alright, Bella. Then I we are safe to return to LaPush."

My world crumbled. I had suffered yet another devastating blow.

But then the rage began to fill me. I felt it increase my energy and I looked down at my palms. A red glow eminated from them. I stepped forward towards Jacob, "Is this true? Jacob, did you just come to check up on me?"

A weary nod came from Jacob. He eyed my arms with caution.

"Well you know what, I am not fine. I am tired of being alone. What is the point of going on if I have no one to share it with? What is the point of proving to myself that I can control the monster within if I have no one that cares? Do you know that I sat and stared at a little girl and almost hunted her down? A little girl!!!" I screamed.

"I didn't know it had gotten that bad. But Bella I had a feeling that you needed me and that is why I came." Jacob looked down shyly as he said this.

I took a step closer and allowed my extremities to cool. I took another step and allowed his warm arms to caress mine. I sank into his embrace and placed my head against his chest. His warmth tickled my cool face and left a searing sensation on my cheek.

I no longer felt alone.

I had support.

"Will you stay with me then?" I pleaded with my gorgeous red-brown eyes.

Jacob peered with his big puppy dog eyes back down into mine. "I'll stand by your side."

Sam had decided that with Jacob by my side, my newly acquired vampire urges would be under control. He began to make his way back to LaPush and extended an open invitation to me.

For once I believe I felt like I belonged.

Yah, in Jacob's arms.
