NPOV
It may have been 2 or 3 am when the funeral services were being held. All attended in the same attire they fought in. There were dozens of graves dug to accommodate the souls that were lost that evening. Grieving onlookers fenced in the area, some grieving harder than others. No doubt that it was a sad day for everyone. Sue stood behind her daughter with her remaining grandchildren, while Charlie held their son. Leah still had not spoken to Nahuel; she seemed unable to detach herself from Jacob, who haplessly held on. Masen and Renesmee each clung to their parent’s hands crying softly to themselves. Carlisle led the proceedings encouraging any who would to come up and say a few words, not many did. They mostly stood there silently not wanting to depart and finalize their goodbyes.

Esme tended to Josephine, and Marcus back at the manor. He had finally finished reattaching himself and hadn’t spoken much since recovering. As the last remaining Volturi member there was anticipation as to what he had to say about the situation. Josephine sobbed on the sofa while Esme patted her shoulder. Josephine had grown close to Sandy and was shocked to discover her death. All she had wanted was a chance at life. Josephine thought of her son and remembered what she was doing this for. To give Alice and Jasper what they have wanted for some time, and to have more time with Jackson. She gripped at her belly, which seemed to be ready to bust, anticipating the day she would see her son again. Josephine jumped when the front door opened and a precision of people followed through. Alice walked up to Josephine immediately and asked how she was doing.
“I’m fine, as fine as I can be anyway. I’m kind of tired. Will you sit with me awhile Alice?”
“Of course I will.” She responded as cheerfully as she could. She lifted Josephine carefully from the couch and carried her to one of the bedrooms upstairs.

Marcus acknowledged Carlisle when he walked through the door. He stood to greet him and walked toward him.
“Carlisle, my old friend, you must know…” Before another word could be uttered Carlisle stopped him.
“Marcus I am well aware of the torment subjected to you these past few years. I do not require an apology from you. However, if you could provide me with any insight as to where we should go from here it would be most appreciated.”


Marcus looked so sincere and full of sorrow he paused for a moment before giving a reply to Carlisle.
“The desecration of the town will not be something that will be easy to hide. All of the bodies are wide spread, who knows if anyone has even found out about it yet. This needs to be the first matter to attend to.”

“Take me to the town and I will take care of it all.” Benjamin said clutching Tia’s hand. Emmett snorted.
“How exactly will you do that?”
Edward answered for him. “I think it would be best to show you Emmett. I would like to see if there are any survivors, humans or vampires to be turned. After it is determined there are no more survivors we can see if Benjamin’s plan will work.”

BPOV
This whole day has been a horrific tragedy. I couldn’t even begin to imagine what we will find when we arrived. The scene was unbearable. There were bodies lying everywhere. For a town so small it certainly looked like hundreds and hundreds lived here now. Aside from the bodies in the streets everything else seemed in place. Neighborhood pets were loose in the street, some still sitting by their owners. I couldn’t see or hear any signs of human life so far but we had not ventured in deep enough yet. I held onto Edwards hand as we walked though, there was a lot of blood spilt my throat was burning it made me very hungry.

Emmett stopped for a moment and turned to face the eastern part of the town. “I hear one. Screaming.”
One I thought, just one. Out of this whole town just one survivor.

We began running toward the direction of the screams, becoming louder and louder by the minute. We finally came to find ourselves in front of the Newton store.
Really? Mike Newton is the one who survived?
I walked inside cautiously and realized the screams were that of a woman.
“Oh my God Angela!”
I ran to her side, I don’t think she heard me she seemed unreachable, just screaming. I looked at Emmett who picked her up and restrained her in his arms. “Okay” he started.
“I’m pretty sure this is the only one they didn’t drain. We can keep looking if you want but I think this is it.”
He looked toward Edward who nodded.
“There is no more life here, let us head back to the Reservation wall and begin this.”
He started to make his way from the shop and we all followed suite. When we reached the entrance to the Reservation Benjamin just smiled.
“Are you ready to see why I was created?”
Emmett laughed but he looked anxious to see what power this boy possesses. Benjamin sat upon the ground and pulled out a lighter. He sparked the flames and immediately the flame set forth in a wave, every bit of oxygen combusting as it went forth. It was astounding to see the amount of control he had over this power, for the first time in a long time I felt threatened. I shielded myself and the rest of us from his attack. Within moments there was nothing but ash and smoke around smoldering piles of rubble. No more greenery or winding roads. It was straight brown and desolate.
My Forks was gone.
Benjamin was not done however, there was a rumbling beneath us, and the magnitude probably would have knocked us down if not for the perfect balance. The earth was rising out of the ground at an extreme rate. It must have been at least 20 feet down and God knows how wide. It was as if Benjamin raised the entire town out of the ground. There was such control in his action; his hands mimed the boulders and earth heaps twisting in the air, like an orchestra. He compacted some of the piles like a snowball, then hurled them toward the ground. For good measure he continued to send tremors through the ground until he was finished placing the rest of the rubble back into the earth. He then turned to us with a pleased smile, still cross-legged on the ground.

Emmett looked on in awe and I was unsure how to feel. I looked toward Edward, confused. He embraced me and looked into my eyes. I leaned my head against his chest.
“What do we do now?” I asked him.
He didn’t speak for a moment; he looked over my head towards the remains of Forks.

“We are going to have to leave.” He replied solemnly.
I sort of already knew that would be the outcome, but I had been hoping there would be a way to stay here. I suppose with all the damage done it would look awful for us to be the only survivors. But what would happen to the rest of Quileute’s, would they come with us? Where would we even go? I expressed my concerns to Edward who insisted we return to the house to discuss things as a group.

We began our return to the Manor; I couldn’t help but think that Angela’s screams would soon join those of Billy and my mother. I feel mentally exhausted. After all the lives we have lost today and all that we went through, now we have to rebuild again. I am so grateful that my children were unharmed, but a lot of my family has been destroyed.

Leah flashed through my mind and my heart wrenched for her, my throat tightening as if I were hungry, although I believe it was as close to crying as I could get. Before I knew it I was walking through the front door, my children bounding toward me, they truly looked exhausted. I asked them why they hadn’t gone to bed yet.
Masen replied. “We wanted to make sure you got home safely mommy.” Renesmee followed with a huge yawn. Her eyes were red and puffy presumably from crying.
“C’mon.” I said taking them each by a hand.
“Let’s go see if we can find a comfy bed here for you.”
I began to walk with them up the stairs when Esme spoke up.
“Bella I can sit with them while they sleep if you like. I believe you should be updated with what we discussed while you were gone.”
She smiled toward her grandchildren and beckoned for them to go with her. “Would you like to read a story before you fall asleep?”
They smiled wearily, and went with Esme too tired to put up a fight. I could hear the screams of my mother and Billy coming from up the stairs. Emmett walked past me on the stairs with the struggling Angela on his shoulder no doubt taking her to the same room. I turned to face Carlisle.
“Who is sitting with them?” Unable to say my mother’s name at the moment. “Jasper.” He replied.
“We assumed that he may be able to ease the transition slightly for them.”
I nodded and glanced at the others around this very crowded room. All of the remaining Quileute’s were here. Shock ensued when I realized that Old Quil was no longer with us. This would mean that Billy and Sue were the only two council members left, and Billy was currently incapacitated. My father sat with his wife and Ian on the couch, and thankfully Leah was resting with her head against the playpen containing her remaining children. Embry sat next to Leah awake although looking very drowsy.

Jacob was sitting with Sam and his family, and the remaining members of both packs discussing things amongst themselves. Rosalie was completely alone in the kitchen coddling Cassie in her arms. I walked in to see her first.
“How is she?” I asked her, Rosalie turned to face me with a smile.
“She’s doing just fine, I fed her a bottle a while ago, and I even got to change her diaper!” She practically beamed while saying that.
I chuckled, I truly was glad that she finally got what she wanted. It was just a shame that Sandy didn’t make it. My frown must have told her what I was thinking and she cast a glance outside toward the gravesite.
“You know we have to leave now.” She said with her attention still focused outside.
“I know.” I said quietly. “Do you know how long we have?”
She finally looked to me again and said “That’s what Edward and Carlisle are discussing now. We agreed that it would be best to leave as soon as possible…meaning some point today, before the town is discovered.”

My eyes widened “I didn’t think we would be leaving today!? Where will we go? We still have a lot of people with us… and what about the pack?”

This time is was her turn to chuckle at me. “Go in there and ask your questions Bella. I’m sure you will get your answers a lot faster.”
I stuck my tongue out at her before departing and made my way to stand near my husband. When I reached them I hugged Carlisle, collapsed into him rather. He laughed and embraced me tightly rubbing my head.
I looked up at him “Where do we go from here?”
He leaned back and Edward grabbed my shoulders and pulled me toward him. Carlisle looked to the both of us and said
“Considering the circumstances Bella it would be extremely unwise to be the only survivors of an “earthquake” that devastated Forks. Thankfully for Benjamin and his talents it’s possible to mask this as an earthquake, unfortunately the lack of bodies will still raise questions, and for that we must leave, and Benjamin must destroy what we have built here as well. I have already asked him to please remove the sanctuary wall from the premises.”

I was without words. I didn’t want to leave but we had no choice.
“Where will we go?”
Edward was the one who answered this time.
“ Carlisle took it upon himself to call Eleazar while we were gone. You and I are more than welcome to bring Masen and Renesmee today and stay with them while we figure that out. Along with the rest of those who have children, the others will be out looking and then making a more permanent home for us.”

“ So you don’t know where we will be living.”
I stated looking to the both of them.
“Not exactly, we have some ideas but we have never moved such a large group of people before we have to find the ideal location.”
Carlisle replied trying to appease me.
“Will the pack be coming with us; will they be leaving the Reservation?”

Sam decided it was his time to enter the conversation and spoke on behalf of all of them.
“Our tribe has suffered the most losses in the past few hours, not to mention our pack. We also agree with Carlisle that staying here would be suspicious as much as it saddens us to leave our home.”
Jacob added to his reply as well.
“We also feel that if your shield had not been containing an “earthquake” of that magnitude it would have reached all of our homes, that fact that it stops just short of us would definitely cause suspicion. And well, not being discovered isn’t that what we fought so hard for last night?”

Carlisle nodded. “Yes that’s exactly what we were fighting for last night, that and our right to exist in peace and happiness.” He ended with a smile.
I felt uneasy about separating like this then a new thought dawned on me. “What about my mom she is still changing, along with the others, where will she go?”
“We will find a place to bring them Bella, and Marcus, Jasper and I will personally watch over them. Josephine will also need to be induced tonight, since it is unwise for her to be traveling in her condition.”

Alice chimed in walking down the stairs from Josephine’s room. “We can bring all the newborns to the house Rosalie and I found originally to deliver the babies for now.”
Carlisle nodded. “For now at least.”

I walked over to where Jacob stood and looked into the eyes of my best friends. “Thank you for all of your help today Bella.” He said.
This caught me off guard, what had I done that he and everyone else didn’t today? He laughed at my puzzled expression.
“I know you probably aren’t used to being the hero but without you and your family today, our pack may have suffered even more losses.”
“May I remind you Jake that if it hadn’t been for my family being here in the first place this never would have happened.”
He shook his head. “You heard Aro’s plan for yourself Bella, he was going to try and be the dominant race, and those who stood in their path would have been taken out eventually. And you better be sure we would have stood in his way.”

I looked down at the rest of the wolves some resting others cherishing the moment with their loved ones. My eyes landed on Leah, still sleeping with a pained expression on her face. I looked around the room for Nahuel and could not find him. Jacob noticed who I was looking for and a look of disgust came across him.
“He, Maysun, and Serena are all at the Housing Development. Apparently Maysun was devastated to learn the news of her father’s death, while Serena seemed to care less she was very upset about Anahi running to be with what is left of the Volturi in Italy.”
“Why is he not here with Leah and his kids?” I asked frankly quite angrily.
I didn’t understand why he wouldn’t trying to do everything he could to comfort Leah.
“Well for starters Leah won’t even look him in the eye and anytime he comes near her she moves away from him. He got the hint eventually and took his sisters to the house. Maggie is over there seeing that they don’t pull anything their father did.”

Embry snorted and stood from Leah’s side. “That kid is a loser, and after what he did today, to Lelu…”
He looked toward the ground at the mention of her name.
“…He doesn’t deserve to be with her, he never did.” He finished still looking toward the ground.
Seth stood up and put his hand on Embry’s shoulder. Embry shrugged it off angrily and began to walk out.
“What if my sister wakes up? She could really use a friend right now.” Seth called after him.
Again he snorted and muttered “friend” under his breath. He sighed and turned back around and sat back on the floor tilting his head toward the ceiling. Seth shook his head and sat back upon the floor next to his mother’s feet. I turned to face my father who beamed up at me.

“I was beginning to wonder when you would turn some attention to me.” He stood up and hugged me tightly.
We didn’t let go for some time, he had tears in his eyes, I felt awful. This was too much for him, I felt ashamed for bringing him into this fantasy world. Ian hiccupped in Sue’s arms and caught my attention. I smiled at the little reminder that dad’s life wasn’t so bad here, not with Sue and Ian. He must be really happy to be in Ian’s life fully.

Rosalie finally emerged from the kitchen. “Shouldn’t we all be here, since we are supposed to be family?” She nodded her head toward the housing development. “I mean I am sure that they have had enough time to grieve, we all lost somebody today.” She added in her angry Rosalie fashion.
Emmett walked over to her and kissed her forehead. He began to take Cassie from her arms and said “Your right my dear, why don’t you go and fetch them.” He flashed a toothy grin her way and she scowled.
“Besides, I would like to spend some time with my daughter.” He added, to which she couldn’t argue. Reluctantly she made her way to the development. We all waited in silence, letting the sun continue to rise and blanket over the lawn. It was nice to have a quiet moment. It was short-lived as Ian started to fuss and Sue quickly took him into the kitchen before waking her daughter. Seth followed behind her, returning shortly with bottles for Leah’s kids, as they too were beginning to stir.

Suddenly Seth dropped two of the bottles onto the floor, and they began leaking everywhere, the noise startled Leah, and several of the babies, panicked she jumped up and reached for them.
“Relax Leah, they are fine.” Embry said to her while placing his hand on her back.
She teared up slightly and nodded to him.
“Seth what’s your problem.” She said weakly placing her head in her hands. I looked toward Seth who seemed frozen in place.
“Oh no…” Jacob said exasperated.
Leah then looked toward he brother, she dawned the same aggravated expression Jake had. I looked out the window toward his object of attention and realized Rosalie was making it back with Nahuel, Maysun, and Serena.
