Bella’s POV

As my eyes flew open, I gasped. Cold arms wrapped themselves around me and turned me onto my back.

“Bella…?” He asked.

“Leo! It’s fine, I’m okay..” I replied still half asleep. “It was just a dream…”

“Do you want to talk about it?”

“Kind of…”

“Tell me,” he urged.

“I don’t know where to start.”

“How about, what happened in the dream?” He smiled uncomfortably.

“Well… We were in Italy and we were at a place called Volterra. There was people there… I think the leader was called ‘Aro’.” Leo flinched and squeezed me tighter. “What’s wrong?” He just shook he he’d and indicated for me to keep talking. “‘Aro’ said that if I stay ‘human’ then he will kill me!” Leo froze. “Leo? Are you okay?”

“What happened after that?” He asked, strained. I noticed his eyes were tightly closed. I took his hand in both of mine and held it tight.

“Nothing… I woke up… Leo, what does this mean? I have to become like you?”

“I won’t let that happen!” He growled coming out of his frozen state. “He won’t make you become like me, I promise you!” He said taking me into a ‘warm’ hug.

“Why not? What if I’m supposed to be like you?”

“What?!” He hissed, raising his voice. I heard Charlie stir in his sleep. He heard it too because he lowered his voice. “Are you saying you want to be like me?!” I was a taken back by his tone.

“Why would that be so wrong?” Within a split second I was sitting at the end of the bed with Leo pacing the small length of my room.

“You don’t understand!” He hissed again.

“Then explain to me, Leo! If you don’t tell me then I can’t understand, can I?” I threw my hands up in frustration. Jumping up from the bed I stood in his path and took hold of his hands, pulling him closer. “Please?”

“Do you really want to be a bloodsucking vampire? Do you know what your asking? You really want to be like me?” He asked, softly.

“If it means being with you forever… then yes!” I smiled, he finally might understand. His face showed confusion… why would he be confused?

“This isn’t the first time you’ve had this conversation, is it?” It was more of a fact than a question. I knew what he meant though.

“Maybe…” I said trying to pull away from him. He just pulled me closer.

“With him?” His eyebrows were halfway up his forehead. I just nodded my head. “What were his thoughts on the topic?” Looking into my eyes, he saw that his thoughts were the same. “Bella? You’re not only with me because you think I’ll change you do you? If I were to change you, you wouldn’t go running off to find him… would you?” He looked so pained it hurt me. I wrapped my arms around his neck and pulled myself up to his height and crashed my lips to his. “Does that answer your question?” I asked, between breaths, grinning. He still looked pained though. “Leo, you think I’m using you, don’t you?” I asked sadly. He just stared down at the floor and shuffled uncomfortably. I lowered my arms around his waist and moulded my body to his. He just stood there. “I love you, Leo, at that’s all there is to it!” With that a cold arm wrapped around me and he lifted my chin with the other.

“I’m sorry… I shouldn’t have thought that… Will you forgive me?” Asked with a smile playing on his lips. I just smiled back and then he kissed me again.

Without braking the kiss he lifted me into his chest as walked over to my bed. With one swift movement he pulled back the covers, laid me on my mattress, and pulled the covered back over me. Finally releasing my lips he laid down next to me and wrapped his arms back around me.

He breathed in deep before speaking. “Is this… really what you want? There’s no going back… Are you really ready to sacrifice everything?” I just stared at him. Was he really going to do it? Would he really change me, if that’s what I wanted? There was only one way to see…

“Yes…”

“If if it is really what you want… then I won’t stop you… But I won’t do it, until your ready.” Always a gentleman.

“I’m ready now.” I simply stated. He shook his head.

“No your not. You have to say goodbye to people, Charlie, Renee and everybody else. Can you at least wait until the end of the month?”

I didn’t really want to wait that long, but at least he was going to do it. After I’m changed, I want to start afresh somewhere. Somewhere new where nobody knows who I am. I won’t go after Edward like Leo thought I might. He was the past now, and I knew it. Yes, I would never forget him, but I had Leo now, and he’s all that mattered.

“Yes… But only till the end of the month…” I smiled to myself as I rolled over onto my side, leaning into Leo.

“Goodnight, sweetheart!”

“Goodnight, I love you…” I said with a cheesy voice.

“I love you too…” I fell asleep to him rubbing my arm and kissing my hair.

“Is Jacob in?” I asked Billy as he opened the door the next day.

“Yeah… Jacob!” He called in the opposite direction.

“What?!” I heard Jacob growl. “I’m trying to sleep!” I heard his bed creaked and he sighed.

“Bella, just go through to his room…” He grinned. It was going to be kind of awkward considering he was trying to sleep but, what who cares?

“Go away!” Jake moaned as I opened his door and closed it again.

“Ummmm, Jake…?” Jake’s head shot up at the sound of my voice.

“Bells?! Shiz! I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to…” I put my hand up to stop his rambling. I laughed aloud when he got up and was only wearing a pair of boxers.

“Er… I’m gonna go change!” Jake grabbed a pair of shorts and a t-shirt then ran out the room. I just stood awkwardly against the wall until he came back. He fluffed up his short hair with his hand as he came in the room.

“So, what doing here at this time in the morning?” He asked offering me a seat on his bed, I obliged.

“Jake, it’s three in the afternoon!”

“What?! Ummmm, I may have slept a little late… ooops!” He said with a guilty grin.

“Do you want to go for a walk with me?” I asked getting up.

“Sure!” He said whilst copying my actions by standing. He opened the door and stood aside like a gentleman and let me past. And then we set off for the beach…
