I kept reading over the letter again and again. Why would she say this? After what we had went through to be together… I had been curled up on my bed for four hours now, I hadn’t moved apart from when I got up to get Bella’s letter from my jacket. I knew I was worrying my family acting this way, Esme and Carlisle the most. Esme was worried about how I was feeling unlike Carlisle who was more confused because of my crying. He hadn’t ever seen me cry, well, apart from when I was being changed, but since then I had never cried. He didn’t understand, it was supposed to be impossible for our kind to cry, but hear I was crying my eyes dry. He kept saying stuff to me, through his thoughts. He wanted me to talk to him, but I just ignored it. Eventually I decided I needed to tell him what happened. He needed to know. I grabbed the letter from the edge of the bed and slowly made my way to Carlisle’s office.
“Who is it?”
“Come in” I heard him get up from his seat as I hesitated, after a few seconds I slowly opened the creaky door and went in.
“Are you ready to talk now?” I barely nodded. “Come sit down,” he patted the seat beside him at the sofa. “So, what happened?” I didn’t say anything, just stared at the letter in my hand. Carlisle saw where my thoughts were and looked down, slowly he pulled the letter from my grasp and read it, I could here every detail of the letter again through his thoughts. Eventually, after what seemed like a lifetime he refolded the pieces of paper and put them on the table beside him. He turned to me and gave me a sympathetic look then finally spoke.
“I don’t know what to say… What are you thinking…?” I didn’t know what to say either. “How are you feeling? Sorry, scratch that, it was a stupid question. What are you going to do?” I took a deep breath and found the courage to speak.
“I don’t know… Am I supposed to go after her or leave her get on with her life…? I thought she loved me, I thought we were going to get married and be the happiest couple to exist.” I felt the tears coming back. I tried to read Carlisle’s thoughts, however, something made me not able to hear him anymore. Was he blocking his thoughts or was I going deaf? “Carlisle, what are you thinking?” He gave me a confused look but answered anyway.
“About how wrong this is, something isn’t right and we both know it.” I skipped a breath, my eyes widened and my mouth dropped open in shock.
“I…I can’t… hear anything your… thinking…”
“What do you mean? You can’t hear my thoughts?
“No, I can only hear my own, I can’t hear anybody else’s either!”
“Hmm, strange, maybe your abilities are being affected by your feelings… That doesn’t matter at the moment, it may be frustrating but try not to think about it…” He rubbed my shoulder reassuringly and then stood up, he walked to his office window and stared out over the horizon. “Something is wrong, really wrong.”
“I don’t understand.” I stand and then join him at the window.
“Bella, she wouldn’t do this. He may not believe it at the moment, Edward, but she does love you. I know she does.” I stiffened when he talked about her, it made me feel worse and extremely upset. “She’s lying about something, I know it, I may not be Jasper but I can feel it.” He turned to stare at me. His eyes were a dark gold, he was sad because he had only hunted a few days before, so his eyes shouldn’t be that colour.
“Carlisle, she doesn’t love me, you just don’t want it to be true because you know it breaks my heart!”
“No, I’m saying it because that’s the truth! Edward, you have to believe me, she’s hiding something whether you believe it or not!”
He was getting me really upset now, what was he trying to do?! Kill me more than I was already dead? I had had enough! I walked away and slammed the door on my way out. I knew where I had to go. I knew where she would go. I ran past the rest of my family and smashed through the door on my way out. Once I was out of the house I sprinted into an even faster run, I ran all the way to the treaty line and stopped; frozen. There standing in front of me where two big, tall and bulky wolves. One was a dark gray type of colour. I guessed that must be Paul. The other was much larger, his fur was jet black, the deepest shade of black, that was Sam, the Alpha. There was a long silence, I guessed Sam was talking to me through his thoughts. I could only guess though as like Carlisle; I couldn’t hear his thoughts. I decided I should say that I can’t hear him.
“Sam, I don’t know if your listening, but I can’t hear you. I mean, I can’t hear your thoughts. I don’t know why, I just can’t hear anybody’s thoughts at the moment.” I hear a low growl then Sam turned and walked off into the woods. Paul was growling after him, he disagreed with something. A few moments later after a stare down with Paul I heard the sound of feet; human feet. Sam appeared from behind a tree in human form.
“Evening, Edward…” His deep voice echoed through the deserted woods.
“Hello, Sam. I’m sorry you had to phase to speak to me. I really don’t know why I can’t hear you or Paul, I also can’t hear any of my family.”
“It’s nothing, don’t worry about it, but I guess you came for a reason…?” He squinted his head to the side.
“Yes. Well… I was wondering if Jacob was here. I need to speak to him. Urgently!”
“I would think he would be at his house. Although, I think I smelt Bella in the reservation earlier. Is something wrong?” He looked at me, trying to figure out why I wanted to speak to Jacob.
“Yes. Sort of. I just need to speak to him.”
“Okay. Well. I will go back to Billy’s and see if he is there. Oh! One second…” He turned and faced into the darkness. I felt the burning sensation worsen in the back of my throat. She was here, and from the stench I could smell she was with Jacob. It was frustrating not being able to hear his thoughts, too hear what he was thinking. As I thought, two figures appeared from the darkness. One was tall and fairly large, the other was small and timid; my fragile little Bella…
“Sam! What is he doing here?!” Jacob growled, he stepped in front of Bella in a protective sort of way. Sam’s voice got harsher and louder, he was trying to calm Jacob before this got very nasty…
“Jacob, step back and calm down. We were just talking.” He sent a look at me, warning me that I should go, but I couldn’t, I stayed glued to the floor. Jacob was trembling terribly now. He turned a fierce glare at me and spoke in a deep, warning voice.
“You better stay away from her. Do you hear me?! Stay away!” He ran off then, I guessed he was going to phase. Bella stood frozen to the spot. I stared at the floor, not wanting to meet her gaze. After a few moments Sam sent a quick glance at Paul, both of them nodded then Sam ran off. Bella, Paul and myself stood frozen in our places for ages. After what eventually seemed like a lifetime two large wolves walked out from the darkness.
