The Twilight Saga






After a few years Edward finally decides that he can't live without Bella any longer and immediately returns to Forks. He finds out that Bella disappeared not long after he left, and no one can find her not even the werewolves or Victoria. But when trying to find her strange things happen...

Chapter 1
The Return

Edward looked out the window of the plane, watching the sun subside from the violet and navy blue sky.

The clouds below were an ocean of blazing oranges and reds, flowing passed the plane like a strong current.

But it wasn't fast enough.

His fortitude was grained down to the smallest particle of dust. After being nearly half a decade away from Bella he finally capitulated from the agonizing pain.

He wondered how he was able to endure the torture for so long.

Each day seemed to last as long as his whole life.

The images of her beautiful face hunted his mine, provoking him. She was the only cure to his shattered heart.

When he left Forks, left her, his heart crumbled slowly to the ground, leaving a trail behind him like bread crumble. And as each piece fell it felt like an anchor was drop and was tied to him, trying to hold him back.

As he pulled further, their bond ripped into him like rusted cables, leaving invisible but scaring tears in his flesh and soul.

And then he began to bleed. All the happiness, warmth, and love that he ever felt poured out of him like a river dyeing the earth in a lugubrious black.

The rust on the cables infected and spread through him, twisting onto every nerve and ruptured them.

After that everything went dark. He wasn't sure if he just blacked out or passed out, but he felt like he was consumed by a black flame that he couldn't put out nor escape.

This was his punishment.

This was for endangering Bella's life and lying to her in the worst way possible. When he told her that he didn't love her anymore, he could see the agony reflecting in her eyes.

He would do anything to take back those words, and now he could only hope that she would be able to forgive him.

Forgive him for all he did to her and failed to do.

He didn't expect her gratitude. He would leave her if she wished; he would do anything for her, even give up his own existence as a small reparation for his sins.

But if there was a even a faint spark of hope that she would look at him again, as she once did before, he would gladly get down on his hands and knees and beg her to take back the pathetic and trivial vampire that he was.

The plane shook as it grounded on the runway.

He closed his eyes and took in a deep breath.

This was it. This was his judgment with his existence at stack.

Its conclusion would put him into euphoria or abyss.

Chapter 2
Part 3

Jake watched the thick rain beat on the windshield furiously as thunder flashed across the dark sky and rumbled through the air.

How considerate, he thought to himself. Why was it that every time he would go to that house, there would always be horrible weather?

But then again, he wasn't in the greatest spirit himself. Not like anyone else would be if they were him. He looked at his father that sat beside him.

He held a pack of beer bottles and some garbage bags in his laps, though he doubted that it would be enough to where they were going.

His father sat tall with his chin up and eyes glazing ahead. But under that strong posture Jake could sense and see in his eyes that this road was proven to be difficult for him too.

He hated when he saw his father in pain. It reminded him of how he looked during his mother's memorial and burial.

“Jake.” his father suddenly spoke.

Jake glaze returned back on the road. “Yeah dad?”

“Thanks for coming down with me.” he replied.

“Sure, sure dad. It's no problem.” he said.

“Jake.” his voice filled with pity and he turned to Jake. “I know that it's harder on you than it is for me.”

The Volkswagen Rabbit squeaked to a halt in front of the red light.

“Dad please-” he pleaded through his teeth.

“Listen son, this brings back painful memories of want happened. I would do anything to ease the agony that they bring you, even a little, believe me. If I could shake these darn legs of mine back to life or roll myself there I would. But you have to understand that you don't have to go through this because of me-”

“Shut up!” he yelled. He gripped the steering wheel tighter as his breathing raged. “I'm sorry dad. I didn't mean to snap like that. It's just,” he shut his eyes and leaned back his head. “If only I could have prevented it somehow. It's just pisses me off that I even let it happen.” his growled in agony as heat shot up his spine. “What did I miss? Maybe if I visited her more often or took her out somewhere. If I told her how I felt, perhaps I could have saw something or she could have told me something, a sign or a hint as to why she's gone. But no, I was to focus on that damn red head leech to even notice anything!”

“Jake! Calm down!” Billy's voice reached his ears.

His eyes shot open. Dammit, he was shaking the whole car and was nearly at the edge of changing into a wolf right there. He took a few long, deep breaths to cool himself down.

When the lights turned green he was able to relax himself enough to move the vehicle forward.

“Sorry dad.” he gave a sad chuckle not meeting his father's eyes. “That was really stupid of me. Must have scared the hell out of you.”

“No you didn't.” his father said casually. “You have nothing to blame yourself for Jacob. The Cold Ones are responsible for this.” he turned his head to look out the side window.

Jake wondered what was going through his father's mind at that moment. If only he could see his face to find a clue.

“You did all that you could have done for her Jake.” he whispered softly, lost in thought.

“But it wasn't enough.” he mumbled to himself so that his father wouldn't hear.

When the Swans house came to view from within the rain, he felt his heart tighten in his chest.

Where once was the home of his dear and best friend now stood a foreign building, showing no signs of life, was crippled and disregarded.

He took at step out in the rain and took in a deep breath, but then he froze in an instant.

He felt the inside of his noise and lungs twist and burn.

This scent! There was no mistake in it!

He took a step forward before he remembered that his father was still in the car. He quickly took out the wheelchair from the back and hurried to his father side of the car.

When he opened the door and lifted him into the chair, Billy started up at him with wide eyes.

“Jake?” he heard the pure concern and shock in his father’s voice was he pushed him up the driveway and onto the porch. “Jake what's the matter?”

“It's them!” he growled. “It's the bloodsuckers I can smell them. They were here.”

“Charlie?” his glaze flashed to the door in horror.

“He seems to be okay. Dad I have to go!”

Jake turned to the stairs and felt his father's hand on his arm. He looked down at him. Billy's eyes were hard and resolute, which generated and granted his strength to Jake.

“Be careful. I'll be fine here. Now go!”

Jake nodded once and bolted out into the rain, with water and dirt spraying behind him, tracking down the scent into the woods.

He didn't turn into a wolf, not yet. He didn't want the others to know who he was going after. Not until he found out for himself first. be continued

Hope you like that part with Jake
Chapter 2
Part 4

Not controlling his strength Edward sent the iron gates of the cemetery crashing into the wall. Leaving a crumbling imprint in the old, moss covered, stone wall.

The collision caused a loud boom that cannonade into Edward's body and was able to penetrate his stone hard skin, vibrating his insides and obstruct heart.

He stood at the opening.

The air around him had a contrast savour of rich greenery, soil, and the decaying corpses beneath the earth. But his throat was shut, refusing to let even a particle of air in or out of him.

His eyes were focused on the never ending field of tombstones, but they were blind.

His ears were deaf to the silence of the dead.

But it wasn't his senses what his was focusing to sever, it was his mind.

Whatever he had to do, he couldn't think. Couldn't think about where he was, why he was there, or that he was looking for-

He ran into the graveyard not letting himself finishing that thought.

He flashed between the gravestones. Barely glimpsing over the names, like a child running through library selves ignoring every book as he searches for the thickest one with the familiar title, which he could spot miles away.

He depleted every stonemason and headstone, every row and section. Once, twice, three times over before he found himself running back out of the cemetery.

He was able to make a ten kilometre gap between him and the cemetery before he stopped. He leaned against a tree with his arm. He pressed his eyes on his sleeve holding in the emotions that were fluctuating so hard inside him that he shook.

The rain poured on his head and streamed down his face as if they were his own tears.

He took in a trembling breath. The feeling of not finding was he was looking for was bittersweet.

“Where are you Bella?” he lamented as her name burned his throat and scraped along the edge of the hole in his chest.

A breezed approached for behind him and as it whistled past his ears his head shot up. A foul odour inflamed his nostrils, which was immediacy followed by the sound of crackling of twigs and dead leaves.

He turned around to face a tall muscular Quileute young man just a few meters away.

With that body structure and smell, there was no doubt in Edward's mind that he was a werewolf.

He stared at him with abhorrent eyes. His jaws were locked as tightly as his fists. His body shook alarmingly.

Edward braced himself. Why did this wolf have such a thick killer aura around him? The treaty was still valid and he didn't recall stepping into their territory.

He then thought that they could have possible expanded their boundaries. He had to resolve this calmly.

The last thing he wanted right now was to start a war between his family and the Quileute Tribe because of his carelessness.

“YOU!!!” a horrifying snarl ripped from the boy's chest.

Edward opened his mouth to say something in defence, but the words dead in his throat.

In the boy's mind an image of Bella shot at him with a force that nearly knocked him down. This was the first time in many years that he 'saw' Bella, besides in his own thoughts.

Before Edward could recover from the mild traumatization, there was an explosion and the next thing he knew a huge russet brown furred wolf was lunging straight at him.

.....End of Chapter

Chapter 3

Jake’s jeans and shirt ripped as the heat rose for his back and spread across him. Jake went for Edward neck. His vision saw nothing but him in a red haze.

But before his paws could touch the ground in front of Edward, he jumped away from where Jacob’s jaws were supposed to lock around him.

He was faster than Jake expected.

He turned his head and snarled. He crouched down with tail cocked, lips pulled back, fangs bared, ears forward, and eyes wild and threatening. His fur stood up as his teeth snap together producing a loud clap.

Edward landed ten meters away, his body tensed but his facial expression was calm.

'Jake!' Embry called in his mind.

'Crap' Jake thought bitterly. Seth, Quil, Embry, and Sam were already making their way towards him.

'Jake have you completely lost it man?' Seth exclaimed.

'Jacob step down. Let me take care of this.' Sam commanded.

Jake's body told him to obey the Alpha wolf's orders, but his mind and heart told him the exact opposite.

'No.' he replied coldly.

'Jake! Are you planning to break the treaty?' Quil yelled.

‘The treaty is already broken.’

'Jacob don't put your personal matters before this!' Sam warned.

Jake ignored them, he had to act fast. It wouldn't be long before they came and stopped him.

“What do you mean the treaty is broken?” Edward asked.

Jake's head snapped up a bit in surprise.

'Oh, that's right.' Jake's narrowed his eyes. ' Bella told me about your special skill.’

Edward's face suddenly twisted in some kind of unbearable pain.

'Where is she?’ he snarled louder.

“What?” Edward's voice was astounded, but his mask was not lifted.

'Don't give me that Damn!' the angry boiled in him, threatening an outburst. 'It was you who took her wasn't it?'

His memories of that nightmarish day returned to him as if it was yesterday.

He was sleeping after a non-stop 24 hour patrol when his father got an alarming called from Charlie and was asked if he knew where Bella was.

He felt that something was terribly wrong and he jumped out of bed and stormed out of the house to his motorcycle. When he reached Bella's house Charlie showed him a letter that he found on the counter.

Dear Dad,
When you read this letter I'm probably long gone now. This is not a suicide note so I'll still be alive and hopefully well, but I can't live here anymore.
I not going back to mom and I don't want you or anyone else to come looking for me either.
You will most likely never see me again, but I want you to know that I love you dad and tell Jake and the others that I'll miss them. Thank you for everything you did for me and how you dealt with want I’ve put you through.
Good Bye,

He stared at the piece of paper that crumbled in his hand for a long time. There was no mistake that this messy handwriting belonged to Bella, or that the tears that smudged the ink were from her eyes. Or that this paper reeked of bloodsuckers.

Jake knew that it was him. Edward was the one that ripped her apart and destroyed her life. He was guilty.

Suddenly Edward's eyes turned black, and they seemed empty. No, more like his mind was somewhere else. His body lost its tension and he appeared completely off guard.

Now was his chance. Jake sprinted at him with full force. The distance between them was closing fast.

When Jake was only a few feet away he felt an unnatural freezing chill. The feeling of submission over powered the rage and gridlocked the muscles in his legs.

'What the hell is going on?' Jake looked at Edward wondering if he was the one doing this. But it appeared that he was under the same spell.

His eyes grow wide in shock when a cloud of vapour formed from Edward's breath.

This was way messed up.

He looked around trying to find who was responsible for this. He found no one but he did find that there was not a single living thing anywhere, not even the insects in the ground. There was an abnormal demonic aura lurking in the still air.

Jake began to shake in fear as vapour formed from his own painting breath. Something was out there.

Strange, faint high pitch cries were coming from all around them, and there was creepy giggle from a child.

A ghostly fog engulfed them. The trees and ground were slowly covered by a sheet of ice, which stretched itself closer towards him and Edward.

'Jacob!' Sam's roar broke through to him. He and the rest of the pack stood not far behind him.

Both Jake and Edward flinched and started at each other. Though Jake could not read his mind he knew what he was thinking.

Was that Hell? Was it! be continued

Sorry had to reposted due to violations, but it's clean now :3

I have a question though, why did you re post those chapters? And to keep me updated you can add me, here's the link:

Chapter 3
Part 2

Edward pressed his palm to his forehead. For some reason his brain felt too heavy for his skull to hold in.

That was the same hallucination as before. Everything disappeared into the darkness and it became cold.

He was back at the gateway to Hell but, instead of being behind the window, this time he was standing right at the entrance.

And he heard things he didn't hear the last time.

He used his full mental power to recap what just occurred. The cries of pain, a child's laughter, and....there was something else, it was faint, but he heard it.

What was it? He was becoming frustrated. Weren't vampires supposed to have a perfect memory? So why couldn't he remember what happened a few seconds ago?

Quil, Embry, and Seth ran to Jake's side. Jake was shaking like a leaf and whimpering. He was completely petrified.

'Jake! Jake!' Quil barked. 'Jake, snap out of it!'

'What did you do to him?' Embry snarled at Edward.

Edward stopped pondering and noticed the wolves for the first time.

'I said something to you leech?!' Embry bared his fangs as he began to slowly approached Edward.

Sam stepped in front of him blocking his way.

'I think that’s enough Embry. Try to regain Jake, while I'll speak with the Cold One.' Sam ordered.

He obeyed without questioning and returned to Jake.

'Dammit I can't get through to him' Quil growled.

'Maybe we should bite him? It could work.’ Seth suggested.

'Are you crazy kid? There is no way that will-'

Before Embry could finish, Seth's jaw snapped hard on Jake's tail.

'YAAAOOOOWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!' Jake yelped as loud as thunder.

'See, told you it would work.' Seth said proudly.

'What the hell was that for?!' Jake yelled at them.

'A better question would be what got into you man?' Quil asked. 'You were completely out of it.'

'Yeah, one second we saw you running at the Cullen guy and then the next second nothing. Poof! You were gone, complete black out.' Embry explained.

'We didn't get your thoughts or feelings. We thought that you were dead or something. It freaked us out.' Seth said.

'I...' Jake shook his head. 'I'm not sure what happened. It was so weird and freaky, like I was-'

“In Hell.” Edward finished his sentence.

'You saw it too?' Seth exclaimed.

The wolves looked at him in shock.

'I knew it! It was you that did it!' Embry snapped, 'You probably did the same thing to-'

'Embry-Don't-Say-It!' Jake bellowed closing his eyes and locking his jaw in pain.

Embry looked at him in apology.

'So it's true that you can read minds.' Sam said in a casual tone.

Edward nodded.

'I don't believe that you're the one behind this, but I can't help but wonder what you two experienced.'

“I thank you for not accusing me falsely. But from what I got from Jacob's mental image, we didn't encounter the same thing.” Edward said polity. “It seemed that he was more aware of his surrounding, while I was so deeply ensorcelled I couldn't see or sense anything really.”

Sam's eyes widened in awe.

'Do you know who could have done it?' He asked

“No,” Edward shook his head. “I happened to me once before, but I haven't thought much of it. I figured that I was simply daydreaming.”

'When did it happen before?'

“When I-” Edward hesitated and the pack took notice. “When I came back to Forks.”

Growls rose behind Sam. 'Why did you come back?' Sam eyes narrowed.

'Are you here to cause more pain?' Jake roared. 'Haven't had enough? Cause I sure had!’

“Edward!” a familiar voice called him. He looked up at the hill on his right. There a small familiar figure appeared at the edge where the ground and sky met and was running to them, zipping through the trees at lightning speed.

It was Alice!

And only a fraction of a second later, Jasper, Carlisle, Esme, Emmett, and Rosalie followed close behind her.

.....To be continued

Chapter 3
Part 3

Alice collided into Edward, causing a thunderous clash. Her arms wrapped tightly around him.

How long has it been since he last seen or spoke to her? He was overjoyed to see his favourite sister after so long.

He lightly squeezed her to him.

I missed you so much. He heard her thoughts.

“I missed you too.” he whispered patting her spiky hair as a small smile formed on his face.

He looked up at his beloved family; it shone a small light in his hollow body that was filled with dark emptiness for so long.

Esme hurried to hug him with Alice, crying with tearless eyes. He felt ashamed to have caused her pain. She had lost her child once, and now she felt like she was losing another.

The rest of his family came over and gave him warm smiles and hugs.

“Hey there bro, where have you been?” Emmett asked as he gave his head a rough shake.

“You're a complete mess and pretty soon those shadows under your eyes will cover half your face.” Rose said and she hugged him.

He was a bit surprised; she never showed loving compassion towards him before.

“Maybe you'll find some makeup to cover them up for me.” he joked.

She gave a faint laugh and another unusual event occurred, she began to cry. She missed her brother and she never thought she would be so happy to see him again.

He felt a stronger bond form between them at that moment. Her sisterly love was something he never got before, or even deserved.

“I'm glad to see you again son, but I'm afraid that now is not the time. We'll catch up later.” Carlisle said.

“You're right dear.” Esme nodded and she and Alice finally released him.

Carlisle turned to Sam. “Hello Sam, I sorry that we rudely interrupted your conversation, but we haven't seen Edward for so long. We couldn't really restrain ourselves.” he gave him a polite smile.

“He understands.” Edward communicated for him. “And he thinks that it would be best if we went to speak somewhere else, under better conditions.”

“Agreed, lets meet up at our house then.” Carlisle offered.

Everyone turned to him in shock.

“Our house?” Esme asked in disbelief. “But the treaty?”

He turned to her. “I'm afraid that in these circumstances some conditions have to be made.” he then gave an odd looked at Alice.

“Alice did you see something dear?” Esme turned to her.

“Yes, I had a strange vision a few years ago. I didn't know what to make of it. I was hoping to discussed it with everyone when Edward came home.” she said and paused. “The reason I didn't say anything before was because it had something to do with Bella.”

A small sound rose from Jake's throat, and all the wolves ears perked up. Edward's chest tightened when the pain came with her name.

“Where is she anyway Edward?” Jasper asked Edward. I was hoping to apologies, you know, for what happened.

Edward eyes fell and Jasper panicked from the sudden pain and sorrow that he sensed.

I'm sorry Edward I didn't-

“It's not your fault Jasper.” Edward reassured him.

“Oh,” he sighed. “Then, what it is?”

Edward looked at his family with eyes filled with sadness and theirs looked back at him in question and concern.

“She disappeared.” he said bleakly.


The werewolves went back to their resort while the Cullens returned to their house to clean up. During the whole run no one asked Edward any further questions and he preferred it that way.

When they got home they quickly went to work. Edward tried to help out, though he felt that he only slowed things down but he had to keep his mind preoccupied.

Alice made the effort to not think about her vision for the time being.

When the house was finally lit up and brought to life the door bell rang and they all went to the front door.

Carlisle and Esme were up front with everyone else behind them in the same formation that they would be when they were about to greeted a guest.

Carlisle opened the door and welcomed them in.

Everyone from the pack from before came in as humans with the addition of Leah. They were on their guard as they entered. Everyone's noises twisted in the introduction of the other species scent, but they could deal with it.

Shortly they made their way to the dining room. Carlisle and Sam sat on opposite ends of the dining table with their families standing behind them. An unsteady atmosphere formed between them.

Sam's face was hard and serious while Carlisle's was calmer as if he was in a normal meeting.

“Well I think that we should get straight to the point.” Sam said as he sat down, but he was so tall that it seemed that he was still standing.

“Very well, then you wouldn't mind if I began?” Carlisle asked and Sam nodded in approval. “Since that my family just recently returned to Forks it would be appropriate if we were aware of the changes that occurred when we were absent.”

After a few seconds Sam spoke. “I'll make it short. It started when Jake became part of the pack. He was a close friend of Bella's so he told her our clan's secret. He then told us that she would provide us with information regarding a certain red haired vampire that was apparently after her.”

Carlisle's eyebrows rose. “Victoria?”

Edward's stomach fell to the souls of his feet. His worst fears were coming to him. Victoria was after his Bella? God, want did he leave Bella with? Was it worth it to even leave in the first place?

“Yes her. We kept close tabs on her but she was sneaky and was really difficult for us to catch.”

Probably because your legs are too weak for those reeking sacks they carry. Edward ignored Rose as she continued to throw glares at them. She seemed to have her own mental cold war with Leah.

“Was she the one that took her?” Carlisle asked.

“We hoped that she was but when we finally had her we tried to focus some answers. She got away, but before that happened we figured out that she wasn't the one. From what we found, are positive that it was a vampire that took her. Then we thought that it could have been your boy.” his dark eyes turned to Edward.

“Edward would never do something like that to Bella.” Alice defended in an angry tone.

“Sure he wouldn't” Jake laughed with the same fury as her. “And I bet he wouldn't leave her crushed and crying either?”

“That's enough!” Sam roared.

Jasper quickly took action and calmed the rising tension that was sure to spark into flames.

“I apologies on her behalf.” Carlisle said after a while.

“As do I for Jacob.” Sam said.

“Is that all that happened?”

“We tried to look further but only came to one dead end after another. Now,” his eyes narrowed and he turned to Alice. “What information do you have to offer?”

All focus was then turned to Alice.

Chapter 4
Flaming Music Box

Alice held a relaxed face and took a deep breath. She never really liked to be the center of attention every time she had to announce an important vision.

“I was shopping alone at the Cevahir Istanbul mall in Istanbul, Turkey. You know one of the largest malls in the world- that's not the point- it was there that I had the vision. It was kind of blurry but I saw Bella walking home one afternoon in jeans and a green shirt and she was carrying want appeared to be a birthday present. I suppose that it was close to Charlie's birthday.”

Jake shook at bit, “That’s what she was wearing when she told me that she was going to buy her dad a gift, it was the last day-” he was not able to finish. “Never mind, I'll just shut up.”

She nodded and continued. “I wasn't sure why I was having the vision, she seemed perfectly fine. When I watched her enter her house then it all changed.” Alice shut her eyes and shook her head.

“What did you see Alice? What changed?” Jasper patted her back.

“I don't know how but the vision suddenly fainted and it was all black. Then a closed box appeared.”

“A box?” Sam asked he seemed to think that it was some kind of joke.

“A music box to be more precise.” she then disappeared for a second and came back to the table with a pen and paper. She began to draw so fast that it seemed that she was scribbling.

Everyone moved in closer to have a look as the image began to take form. It had a squared shaped frame of dark roses growing around a black sphere that had small detailed design of a never ending universe.

“This is only a picture of it, but the roses seemed to be real and the stars and galaxies moved and twinkled as if it really held the universe.” she said as she continued to draw.

Seth let out a low whistle. “Now that's cool and freaky.”

“Yeah and it gets more strange when it opened.” she said as she began to draw a lid and a tall flame within the box.

“Who would want a figurine of a flame in their music box? Isn't there normally a ballerina or love birds?” Jake asked.

“I didn't say it was a figurine.” Alice said in a low voice. They gave her a puzzled look. “It was a live blue flame and if you look closely it's floating. It's not attached to wires or anything.”

They all looked at the drawing in dismayed but Edward seemed shaken and appeared to be paler than normal.

“Did you see this somewhere before Edward?” Carlisle asked him and their gaze turned to him. He shook his head slowly not moving his glaze from the paper.

“No, but that time when I and Jacob were under that abnormal illusion there was these noises.”

“I remember that.” Jake shivered slightly. “There was screaming and a giggling coming from everywhere.”

“And there was something else....the song from a music box”

Chapter 4
Flaming Music Box
Part 2

Jasper stood in the front driveway looking up at the starry moonless night. The buzzing of insects and the rustling of nocturnal animals traveled in the cool air. The sound of leaves dancing with the wind was similar to the sound of rain.

It was like this before, on the day that they left Forks. He felt fully responsible that his family had to abandon this life, this home; even though they kept telling him that it wasn't his fault.

He smiled sadly to himself. He has been nothing but trouble for them from the start. They all managed to deal with the difficulty of restraining their thirst for human blood, while he had to be watch constantly like a child near sharp knives or matches.

An annoying weight hung in his chest. He was so pathetic. He felt horrible that he has been dragging his family down for so long, but what made him feel worse was that he didn't believe that he truly put real effort into controlling his craving.

Thinking about that added more mass to the weight. He swore under his breath and marched up the stairs. He stopped in front of the door and looked through the window.

The wolf pack left and Edward was sitting allow on the coach, while everyone else was still in the dining room discussing places that Bella could be or went that the werewolves didn't check yet. Edward head was down and pressed against his hands that were balled together in fists.

He was still as stone, a complete solid of anguish and pain. If he didn't have his gift of sensing emotions he wouldn't come even close to imaging what he was going through.
His own hands tightened into fists by his sides.

Out of all the problems and difficulties that he caused his family these was the worst.

When he first saw Edward and Bella together he was surprised by how much joy and love Edward felt towards the human girl. At first he didn't really understand it so he let it pass. Now because of him his brother was in constant pain and never smiled or had the same happiness that he had before and after he met Bella.

His glaze flashed to the door. He had to make a commitment to himself. No more being the weakest link or amateur. When he'll walk through that door he will come in with the confidence and determination to change and tame his vampire side like he never did in the past. He would also put in his full force into finding Bella and repairing the damage he caused.

He pulled his hand on the handle, closed his eyes, and took in a deep breath holding it in. He had to control his grip to not crush the handle.

There was it no turning back or excuses. This was not for him but for his family and most importantly his brother. Failure or second tries were not an option. He had to get through this all the way.

He turned the handle slowly listening to the metals scratch against each other, and then pushed the door open. The door suddenly became heavier and harder to open. When he stepped in he opened his eyes he and exhaled. This was his first move to recovery and the long journey ahead.

He headed towards the living room to try to cheer Edward up a bit but when he came to the entrance of the room he froze in horror.

His brother was still where he was when he saw him through the window, except that Edward was looking out the same window, not breathing, with empty pitch black eyes, and expressed no emotion at all.

Jasper panicked and came in front of Edward in an instant. Edward’s dark eyes were looking at him but they didn't seem to see him. He garbed his shoulders and began to shake him violently.

“Edward! Edward can you hear me? Edward!” He yelled in his face but there was no response, he was like a doll.

He never seen or felt something like this before. It was one thing to reject ones feeling and become emotionless but this....... there was nothing. No emotions. No emptiness. Jasper couldn't get anything from him; it was like he wasn't there at all.

“Jasper what's wrong?” Alice appeared by his side along with his family.

“Edward his-I don't know- there something wrong with him.” he blurred his words out within one second.

“Let me see him.” Carlisle stepped in. Jasper moved out of the way.

Carlisle medical knowledge kicked in and he took Edward's chin in his hand and examined his eyes. “Edward,” he said in a calm voice, but Jasper knew that deep inside he was extremely concerned and frightened for his son. “If you can hear me I want you to look at my finger and follow it.”

He raised a finger a few inches from his face and began to move it slowly from side to side, but Edward's eyes didn't follow nor response. He then tried getting Edward's attention anyway possible, like pinching him, telling him to say or move if he felt anything, but nothing worked.

“Carlisle?” Esme cried in terror.

He shook his head in confusion and anxiety as he lowered his hands. “I don't know what to make of it.”

At the same moment that Carlisle ended his sentence the gold in Edward's eyes slowly reappeared. His eyes flickered a bit before he looked up at everyone.

“Edward!” his mother cried and hugged him.

“Uh?” Edward said in surprised as she knocked whatever breath that he had out of him. “Hey mom, what’s going on?” he asked as she pulled away to look at him.

“We should be asking you the same thing.” Emmett said. “What was that all about? You seemed to be lost in your own Lala Land.”

Edward glazed traveled as his lose himself in thought.

“Was it another one of those hallucinations that you experienced before?” Alice asked.

He nodded slowly. “I attempted to look into this one a little more. To see if I could find the source or why I'm having them.”

“Well don't ever do it again!” Rose exclaimed. “You could have been taken over and not come back. Did you think about what it would do to us if you became a brain dead vampire?”

“Sorry.” he said softly.

Jasper gave out a small sigh. That was an experience that he wasn't willing to go through again. But he could feel that within Edward's guilt he had a growing curiosity.

Edward looked up at him as he read his mind.

“Don't worry Jasper I wouldn't do something like that again.” but for some reason it didn't sound convincing.

Suddenly there was a faint giggle of a child coming from, what appeared to be, outside their house, which was followed by the sound of someone tapping on wood. They stopped dead and alert. They slowly turned to the window.

There was nothing beyond the glass but inside on the coffee table stood the music box.

Alice and Rose gasped as Emmett gulp. Edward stood up and began to walk to it but Carlisle put his hand on his shoulder. Edward looked into his father eyes.

“Are you sure?” he asked and Edward nodded once. He released him and pulled Esme to his side.

As Edward headed to the box, it was like watching a horror movie it slow motion and every step he took echoed louder and louder in the dead silence. All that was missing was a rushing heartbeat in the background.

When Edward placed his hand on the box everyone stopped breathing. Their eyes traveled from the box to Edward and back.

When Edward touched the box the black roses seemed to flutter in a no existing breeze and the stars and galaxies in the sphere glowed brighter and swirled around faster.

Edward didn't move for what seemed like a long time. His arms were shaking slightly and if a stream of sweat ran down the back of his neck it would.

And within a second he opened the lid of the box.

Everyone took a quick step back, as if it were too exploded, but there was no blue flame nor was there music.

It was empty.

They all came in closer and stared down at the box in shock, before their heads snapped back up to the window as a loud, distressed, shrieking cry clashed through the night.
