There stood the Cullens. Along with another female, she was with Edward.
They hadn't changed at all. Carlisle was smiling, then he spotted me. His smile
dissapeared. Then all their eyes shifted to me, I felt a little uncomfortable, but I just walked away &
ignored their stares.
I was outside, standing with Jessica & Angela. Jessica was telling me, about how Mike proposed to her.
"... And then after we walked on the beach, he kneeled down and said 'Will you marry me?' my heart
melted and I just screamed with joy!" Jessica finished, I half smiled, "That's great." I replied, she continued
to smile. Then I noticed Angela's annoyed face. "So what about you Angela? How are you & Eric doing?"
I asked, trying to help her into the convo. She sighed, "I don't think he wants to marry me." she admitted,
I gulped. "Do you love him?" I asked, she nodded her head. "Yes! But, I don't think he does... Don't you hate
that, when you really love someone & they can't even love you back?" she asked, now rambling off.
Truthfully though, I did. Well actually Me & Edward loved eachother, then he just stopped caring. After that
day, when Jasper nearly went crazy over my blood. Then he blamed his self, stupid him. Couldn't he under -
stand, that trouble would happen? He couldn't always protect me, I always argued with him, telling him
that he wouldn't have to protect me or worry about me, if he just changed me, but no, he wouldn't.
I didn't know it, but Angela was still talking to me. So I quickly snapped back, "Yeah." I said, she sighed.
And then tears formed in her eyes, "I hate him." she said, then Eric appeared with a bright smile on his
face, along with Mike. "Hey Girls! How are you guys doing?" he asked, and Angela started to cry harder,
running out of everyone's sight. I was about to run after her, but Eric stopped me. "What happened?" he asked,
sounding a little worried, I just said "Go find her. She needs to talk to you." and then he ran off after her...
Jessica sighed, "Wow... Now I feel kinda bad." she admitted, "What happened?" Mike asked, before
Jessica could reply, there was another voice that came out of no where. "Hey..." it was light and bright,
Jessica & Mike looked behind me, and I turned around. There stood Alice & Jasper. The rest were behind
very cautious. "Hey..." Jessica replied, very quietly. "Um. Do you mind if we could talk to Bella alone?"
Jasper asked, kindly. I could tell, he was less tense, than the last time I saw him. He was more comfortable,
you could say.
"Sure." Jessica&Mike replied, at the same time, and left quickly. Then I faced them, with a straight, blank face.
Not sure what to say, Not sure what to do. "Bella." they both said, I nodded. "Hey, Alice & Jasper." I replied,
they continued to look at me.
"What happened to you?" Alice finally asked, I sighed. "Isn't it obvious?" I asked, Jasper gulped. "Who did this
to you?" she asked, I just shrugged. "I don't know." I replied, "Did you do this to yourself?" Jasper asked,
sounding a little angry. "No." I replied calmly.
"We need to go somewhere." Alice said, "Oh okay." I said starting to walk away. "No Bella. You need to
come with us." Jasper added, I stopped and turned around. "Why?" I asked, "We need to talk about this."
Alice said, "This?" I asked, "About you." Jasper replied.
"Look theres nothing to talk about. I am, what I am." I replied, "Bella, don't make this complicated." Jasper said.
I ignored him, he sounded like he was getting even more angrier. "We want to know what happened to you."
Alice said, then I just stared at them.
Why would you want to know what happened? You guys left me? Why do you care? I just wanted to scream at them,
I was trying to keep chill. And then as my mouth opened, I spotted someone from the corner of my eyes. It was
"Hey Everyone!" he said loudly, and they all greeted him. He was wearing a suit, with no tie, but some worn out dress
shoes. He looked great, and had a cup in his hand. He walked up to me, with a smile on his face. And stood next to me.
"Hey Bells. What's up?" he asked, I just stared at him, my mouth open. "Jake, what are you doing here?" I asked, I didn't
even bother to look at Alice & Jasper. He smiled, "I thought I'd stop by. Anyways my friends are here with me too." he admitted,
and soon enough I spotted the rest, already grabbing food.
I sighed, and closed my eyes with a gulp. "Bella, we need to talk." Jasper said, I turned back to them. And to my surprise, there
stood all of them. Carlisle, Esme, Rosalie, Emmet, Edward & another girl... Probably Edward's new mate.
"Um. Honestly it's not a good time." I said, and the music turned on. "Okay Everyone! Time, to get your date & dance!" someone
screamed, people cheered as they got on the dance floor. I sighed, as Jake & his friends were dancing like idiots on the dance
I looked back to them, and saw Edward's eyes piercing into me. He looked gorgeous, he reminded me why I fell in love with him.
He reminded me, why I cried for him. He reminded me, Why I longed for him. But now, it was different. The hole he created,
was almost closed and he couldn't open it again, he wouldn't. Could he?
I quickly looked away from him, "Bella, we should talk." Carlisle's calm voice said, I sighed. "Look. It's nothing you don't really
need to know. You can just let it go - " " - No. We need to know." Esme said, her voice still soft and kind. "Why?" I asked,
"Because Bella... We still care about you." Alice finally said, and I let out a nervous laugh... I didn't mean to let it out, but I did.
They all looked ashamed now, and that's what I wanted to avoid. Then I felt someone's arm around my arm. "C'mon Bella, let's go
dancing..." Jacob said, sounding drunk. I looked at him, "Jake. Your drunk." I said, "No I'm not!" he said, and quickly pulled me
lifting me nearly up. He dragged me to the dance floor, and I nervously looked down.
"Jake, this isn't a good time." I said, he just smiled and put his arms around my waiste... Then I just gave up, and put my arms around
his neck, I'm lucky he was strong, because if he hadn't pulled me up a little, I probably wouldn't be able to reach him...
I glanced back to them, and they all continued to stare at me & Jake. The Music slowed down, to a romance song... And I gulped
trying to pull away...
Jake often did this, trying to get me. He loved me, and I knew it, I loved him too, but not the same way he did. Once I remember
he took me out to the beach, and set up a candle lit dinner I immediatly left him... I already told him, I don't do that kind of stuff.
Ever since Edward left, I decided that I would never fall in love, that I wouldn't get myself hurt or my heart broken. But Jake
never gave up, but he was a good guy, I know he would never hurt me, or break my heart, he loved me too much...
So when I glanced back, Edward had a blank expression, Alice looked nervous and Emmet just rolled his eyes and I heard him
mutter, "Stupid Mutt..." but Jake ignored them.
Then I just layed my head down on Jake's shoulder. I could sense his lips curling into a smile, I sighed and whispered, "We should
go..." and he continued to smile. "I love you Bella." he said, I sighed and finally lifted my head. Then I pushed Jake away, and
ran out of the party area, trying to contstantly stay to human speed...
I ran into the woods, and just found a rock. I sat down on it, and tried to think. Tried to push away the thoughts, but they all
came at once, and I thought tears would come out, but as always, they didn't. Then I quickly looked up, to a slight noise.
And there they were... All of them. I just sighed, "What do you want?" I asked, Alice stepped in front of all them. "We want to know
how you've been?" she asked, "We know it's a stupid question..." Emmet added, and it was. Then I stood up, and stuck my hands
into my pockets. "Alright... I'll tell you everything." I finally said.
