It had been a month since the Cullen's left Forks, I snapped out of my depression after Charlie threatened to send me back to Jacksonville to live with my hairbrained mother, Renee. I decided that it was time to move on with my life so what if Edward didn't love me, he told me of one coven of vampires in Italy named the Volturi, I knew that there were three Lords. Lord Aro, Lord Marcus and Lord Caius, they wrote the rules, the one was that no human should know about a vampire's exsistance. Edward and the Cullen's broke that rule, they showed me that they were vampires, I was even hunted by a vampire tracker named James.
Now I lay in bed listening to my dad, Charlie make breakfast in the kitchen. I got up and dressing quickly to go see him before he went to work. That was his family, sure he had me but he spent so much time at work that it was unhealthy.
"Morning Dad!" I said as I pranced into the kitchen. He looked up from the frying pan which held very dark bacon.
"Morning Bells, you're in a good mood." I walked over to him flipped the bacon and gave him a hug.
"Well why wouldn't I? Tomorrow I graduate, and I get to start my travelling idea that we talked about." Dad nodded
"You sure do Bells, anything to keep you happy and free from depression." I smiled meakly at him. He gave up on trying to cook the bacon so I took over and tried to revive the already blackened meat.
"I already asked Sue Clearwater if she would cook for you while I'm gone and she said that you could go over anytime you would like, since your such close friends with Harry." Dad nodded then I gave him his breakfast.
"Thanks Bella, I'm going to miss you." I choked on my glass of water, it almost sounded like he knew I wasn't ever coming back to Forks. That I would actually be in one way or another staying in Italy forevermore.
"You okay Bella?" Dad had lept up and was patting my back as I spat the water out into the sink. I nodded and wiped my mouth off on the back of my hand.
"Thanks dad, I'll miss you too." We just stood there looking a little awkward. I looked at the clock, "You better get going dad or you'll be on time." I said teasingly. He looked up at the clock and smiled,
"Only you Bella only you." He gave me a quick hug and went outside to his cop car.
It was Sunday afternoon I finished packing when I stepped on a floor board by my bed that squeeked. Dad had just done the flooring not long ago, I crouched and peeled the floor board up with my nails. Under the board was everything that reminded me of Edward and his family. I let the floor board snap back into place, it was a good place for all that stuff so I was going to leave it there hoping that when I was long gone and in Italy and Charlie had past away the house would either burn to the ground or the Cullen's would come back and Edward would check that, that stuff was still there. It would be but there would be one thing that wouldn't be there when he left. I would write letter to them hoping that they would actually find it.
I went to my desk pulled out a pen and a pad of paper, I wrote:
Dear Cullen Family;
It has been exactly one month since you left Forks. I was left here in a total state, but now I snapped out of that depression. Charlie and I have been talking more and I decied to travel the world, of course my trip only consists of one destination, Italy. I'm sure that will you miss me but by the time you will have read this I will be long gone. So much for a happy ending huh? Well it was nice knowing you;
With lots of Love
Isabella Marie Swan.
P.S. When you all left, my heart got shattered into many pieces. I'm not letting that slow me down, I'm moving on picking up the pieces as I go so I hope your happy.
I grabbed an envelope folded the letter and wrote: Cullen Family, on the front. I tucked it on top of everything else and stepped on the floor board making sure that it didn't stick up any. I went to my computer, checked my email I had one from my mom, I emailed her back then looked at the clock. Charlie would be getting home soon so I went down stairs and started to cook supper. I grabbed steaks, potatoes and vegetables, I was in the middle of peeling potatoes when Charlie came in.
"Hey Bells I'm home." He came to the kitchen, "What're you cooking?" I looked up and smiled at him.
"Sirlion steaks, potatoes, brocolie and cauliflower. I'll be making a salade too." Dad nodded took of his gun belt hung it up and washed up. He came back to the kitchen grabbed the lettuce, tomatoe, and dressing.
"This will probably be the only thing you'll let me do because it can't get burnt." I laughed and punched his shoulder playfully.
"Well that's because you don't cook salade, dad." He chuckled and we worked in silence. We didn't need words to talk, we just knew that when I was gone there was no turning back. Lots of people said I was very much like my dad. They were right, we didn't talk very much, it didn't bother us to be alone and we knew how the other one was feeling with out really asking. Dad also set table and I brought out the broiled steak, mashed potatoes and veggie mix.
"My little girl's all grown up." Charlie whispered as we sat down to eat.
"Dad I'll always be your little girl, nothing will change that." I said, he could hear the tears in my voice. The crystline tears betrayed me and slid down my cheeks.
"I'm sorry Bells I didn't mean to make you cry." I shook my head,
"No it's okay dad. I love you, and I'll miss you." We finished supper and Dad went to go shower embarressed that he actually broke down and started crying with me. I washed dishes and went to watch the game with dad. It was like a fairwell party just between the two of us and I actually really like it. I went to be that night and slept peacefully, there was no nightmares of the Cullens and for once I was glad that I didn't see Edward's face.
Dad actually stayed home from work saying that his little girl was graduating and he wasn't missing it for the world. That got me crying again and the make-up artist aka Angela had to cool me down before finishing my make-up.
"Bella really you have to stop crying!" She cried. I wiped my eyes and put in one headphone. "Good idea. No listening to sappy music!" I smiled and showed her the song, it was Body Body by Massari. She smiled and continued to finish.
Soon we were all standing tall and strong on the stage to recive our deploma, Jessica was in front of me and when she was called I wiped my hands on my gown I was so nervous.
"Isabella Marie Swan, please come forth and take you deploma." I walked forward and from the crowd I heard,
"That's my little girl WOOHOO!" Everyone laughed as I blushed. I blew a kiss out to the crowd since I couldn't see my dad due to the blinding lights. I recieved my deploma waited with the other graduates and threw my cap into the air whooping and halloring with the other.
"Bella you actually made it!" Mom came running over to me.
"MOM!" I hugged her, "Oh I haven't seen you in so long. How are you?" She smiled,
"Phil and I are awesome. Oh honey you look so gorgeous!" I laughed and we talked, dad came over and joined us. Something moved in the corner, I couldn't see because the lights were still too bright, at first I thought it was Edward, You idiot! It's not Edward or any of the other Cullen's they said they would never interfer with your life again, My mind screamed at me. I shook my head,
"What's wrong dear?" Mom asked I looked back and smiled.
"Nothing I thought I saw something that doesn't matter anymore." I whistfully walked with my mom and dad out the door of the hall. Phil joined us and together we went out for supper.
Mom and Phil left after supper saying that they had to get going. Dad and I on the other hand went out to the movies, we watched an action/comedy film then went home. I showered and realized that dad had fallen asleep on the couch again! I woke him and sent him to bed, I hopped into bed too and fell into a peaceful sleep.
In the morning I woke, grabbed my bags, and headed downstairs. I headed into the kitchen, I had to leave soon.
"Dad I was wondering will you do the honours of driving me to the air port in you cop car?" he smiled.
"Of course Bella." We had breakfast together, sometimes talking a little. Then it was time for me to go, dad drove me to the airport and I hugged him, squeezing hard so that he wold never forget me.
"Bye Bells." He whispered in my ear. I borded the plane and waited for it to take off.
"Please fasten you're seatbelts for we are about to take off." I buckled my seatbelt and popped in a piece of gum so that my ears wouldn't pop when we were at a high enough altitude.
"Ma'am can I get a drink?" I asked the stewardess. She went and got me a bottle of water, "Thank-you" She nodded and went to go tend to another person. I looked out the window to see beautiful green patches and blue water. I couldn't wait to get to Italy, where either I would be ended or accepted. I smiled and nodded off into a slight doze.
"Bella," Edward stood so still that for a moment I thought he was a statue. "I don't want you to do anything reckless, for Charlie's sake." I nodded tears sliding down my cheeks. I blinked and he was gone.
I woke immediately, no I wasn't heading down that road again. The reason for me going to Italy was that Edward lied to me, saying that he had loved me when in reality he never did. Well if the Volturi decided that I would make a formidable member it sure shock the Cullen's when I showed up with them. It was his choice to leave, it's only right that you choose what you want to do...or be my mind crooned softly. I smiled pulled out my Ipod Touch and listened to my music while the day faded into night. What I didn't see two rows back from my seat was the dark hooded figure watching me.
that was so great!!
thank goodness you finally updated!

Here's the next chapter for those who are waiting XD
Chapter Nineteen (Part one)
Tanya and I were lounging around when my cell went off
"Excuse me love," She smiled blowing a kiss at me, I went into the back yard, "Hello?"
"Edward where are you?" It was Esme,
"I'm hanging out with Tanya why?" It was quiet for a moment, "Esme?"
"Oh no reason, we can't find Alice or Jasper, and they're not answering their cell phones..." She was truly worried,
"It's probably nothing Esme, after all they're the odd ones out in the family, they probably went on a vacation off in Europe somewhere," I said simply,
"Yeah your probably right Edward," She sighed softly, "My family's falling apart," She more or less said it to herself and I chose to ignore it.
"So where's everyone else?" I asked,
"Oh! Well Emmett and Rose are out hunting, I'm talking with you and Carlisle is in our room reading a medical book." Oh well that seems real interesting. I thought smiling,
"Cool," Tanya came over to me wrapping her arms around me, I smiled down at her lovingly, "Well I guess I should go Esme, I'll talk to you soon alright?"
"Alright Edward," She hung up and I put my phone away, Tanya kissed me quickly,
"You know Edward your family isn't going to be very amused by us dating," I just shrugged smiling,
"Well they'll have to deal with it Tanya, Bella wasn't the right girl for me and turns out I really do like red heads," Tanya giggled softly and we went back into the house.
I was sitting in the kitchen with Alice, Jane, Bree, Alec and Diego we were smiling and hanging around when I got a text. Hating it when people read over my shoulder I stood and went over to the fridge sticking both my head and phone in when I opened the door.
Hey sister come to the hall way I want to see you.
There was no sign off name so warily I went into the hall expecting one of Felix's pranks again. I looked around and started off down the hall way when from the shadows a familiar smile and set of eyes looked down at me, it was Jasper. I screamed and practically flew into his arms.
"Oh my god Jasper you came!" I shrieked, I heard another scream and stepped well out of the way as Alice came bolting from the kitchen bowling Jasper right over! I giggled turning away as she kissed him, I went over to Alec he had his hand on his chest,
"Mia Bella you really have to stop screaming like that, I thought you got gravely injured or scared." I smiled and kissed him quickly,
"Don't worry my love I would be able to tell you if I was," He smiled and hugged me tightly, then went and helped Alice and Jasper off the floor. Jasper took a look at Alice's cloak then mine and he seemed to pale further. I smiled at him brightly, "Jasper," He looked at me,
"Yeah Bella?" He smiled back at me,
"I joined so that Edward can't hurt me again, although I highly doubt that he'll be able to do that now that I have Alec." Jasper nodded and looked at Alice,
"I joined because I'm not leaving Bella behind again," A note of pleading showed in Alice's voice when she said, "You can join to love, Lord Aro would love to have you with us," Alec stepped forward,
"It would be a pleasure to have a new brother," Jasper smiled sighing softly,
"Where's Lord Aro?" Alice squealed and took off to find him,
"Good choice Jasper!" I said smiling, he nodded, "Alice is absolutely loving the new me,"
"New you?" I nodded and Lord Aro came down the hall way with Lord Caius and Lord Marcus.
"Jasper Cullen what a pleasure to see you son." Jasper nodded and we all headed back to the throne room.
Hope you liked it!

Chapter Nineteen (Part Two)
I stood with Alec while we surrounded the Lords, Alice stood nervously at my side looking lovingly at Jasper. I smiled and looked over at Lord Aro, My Lord sorry to interrupt but I think Jasper would be a very loyal member of the guard, also a very useful one. Lord Aro smiled looking over at me Jasper was looking around the room for the source of the voice,
"I think you are right daughter."
"Excuse me my Lord but who was that?" Jasper asked, Lord Aro smiled brighter,
"Care to step forward and show yourself?" I smiled stepping carefully away from the group. Jasper's eyes went wide, "Yes Jasper it is our Bella who can project her thoughts, she's a very talented girl," I spun in a small circle and went back to Alec who wrapped his arm around my waist.
"How come you never showed us Bella?" Jasper asked softly,
"Well I was going to Jasper, at my eighteenth birthday party but that didn't work out too well." I said, "Edward decided to make a mess out of it," Alec pulled me closer,
"Mia Bella do not get all worked up again," I nodded and relaxed into him, alright. He smiled at me back and the ceremony continued.
Everyone was so happy that Jasper decided to join us, Alec and I were sitting outside in the sunshine. I was laying in Alec's lap and he was playing with my hair as his skin sparkled beautifully. Birds flitted around the yard, not really coming close to Alec and I but it was fun to watch them anyway.
"You know Jasper's going to find it easier being here with us, he was struggling with that diet that the Cullen's were on." I said softly, Alec looked at me and I nodded,
"Really?" I smiled and he shifted me so that I was still lying in his lap but facing him. "Well then it won't be that hard to switch him over... you on the other hand, you've never tried it so..." I covered his mouth with my hand,
"It'll be more natural." He smiled against my hand,
"That it will be." He murmured. We were silent for longer, once in a while Alec would kiss my hand gently or smell my hair and I would giggle at it. He smiled brightly at me then Jasper, dressed in his new cloak, and Alice came outside,
"You two look quite comfy," Alice said smiling, I nodded and I knew the look in her eyes,
"What did you see sister?"
"We're going out to the club tonight, and you're actually letting me help you with you're outfit." I beamed and she helped me up as Jasper helped Alec.
"You know Jasper it's good to finally know that you're going to be my brother." Jasper nodded,
"Yeah it is, I'm not leaving Alice nor am I leaving Bella - again," I quickly hugged him, then gave Alec a quick kiss on the cheek. Alice took my hand and we left the courtyard to go get ready.
Yet again it is short but only because the hydro keeps going out, I hate storms! Hoped you liked it XD
