The Twilight Saga

What if Jacob didn't save Bella when she jumped off the cliff? What if Edward did?

This is a twist on what happens after Bella jumps off the cliff. If Jacob wasn't there to save her, who would. (wink wink) lol.

Chp 1:

Bella's POV

The wind blew stronger now, whipping the rain into eddies around me. I stepped out onto the edge, keeping my eyes on the empty space in front of me. My toes felt ahead blindly, caressing the edge of the rock when they encountered it. I drew in a deep breath and held it.... waiting.
I smiled and exhaled.
Yes? I didn't answer out loud, for fear that the sound of my voice would shatter the beautiful illusion. He sounded so real, so close. It was only when he was disapproving like this that I could hear the true memory of his voice--- the velvet texture and the musical intonation that made up the most perfect of all voices.
"Don't do this," he pleaded.
You wanted me to be human, I reminded him. Well watch me.
"Please. For me."
But you won't stay with me any other way.
"Please." It was just a whisper in the blowing rain that tossed my hair and drenched my clothes--- making me as wet as if this were my second jump of the day.
I rolled up onto the balls of my feet.
"No, Bella!" He was angry now, and the anger was so lovely.
I smiled and raised my arms straight out, as if I were going to dive, lifting my face into the rain. But it was too ingrained from years of swimming at the public pool--- feet first, first time. I leaned forward, crouching to get more spring...
And I flung myself of the cliff.
I screamed as I dropped through the open air like a meteor, but it was a scream of exhilaratation and not fear. The wind resisted, trying vainly to fight the unconquerable gravity, pushing against me and twirling me in spirals like a rocket crashing to the earth.
Yes! The word echoed through my head as I sliced through the surface of the water. It was icy, colder than I'd feared, and yet the chill only added to the high.
I was proud of myself as I plunged deeper into the freezing black water. I hadn't had one moment of terror--- just pure adrenaline. Really, the fall wasn't scary at all. Where was the challenge?
That was when the current caught me.
It felt like the waves were fighting over me, jerking me back and forth between them as if determined to share by pulling me into halves.
I fought to keep my breath in, to keep my lips locked around my last store of oxygen.
It didn't surprise me that my delusion of Edward was there. He owed me that much, considering that I was dying. I was surprised by how sure that knowledge was. I was going to drown. I was drowning.
"Keep swimming!" Edward begged urgently in my head.
Where? There was nothing but the darkness. There was no place to swim to.
"Stop that!" he ordered. "Don't you dare give up!"
The cold of the water was numbing my arms and legs. I didn't feel the buffeting so much as before. It was more of just a dizziness now, a helpless spinning in the water.
But I listened to him. I forced my arms to continue reaching, my legs to kick harder, though every second I was facing a new direction. It couldn't be doing any good. What was the point?
"Fight!" he yelled. "Damn it, Bella, keep fighting."
I didn't want to fight anymore. And it wasn't the light-headedness, or the cold, or the failure of my arms as the muscles gave out in exhaustion, that made me content to stay where I was. I was almost happy that it was over. This was an easier death than others had faced. Oddly peaceful.
I thought briefly of the cliches, about how you were supposed to see your life flash before your eyes. I was so much luckier. Who wanted to see a rerun, anyway?
I saw him, and I had no will to fight. It was so clear, so much more defined than any memory. My subconcious had stored Edward away in flawless detail, saving him for this final moment. I could see his perfect face as if he were really there; the exact shade of his icy skin, the shape of his lips, the line of his jaw, the gold glinting in his furious eyes. He was angry, naturally, that I was giving up. His teeth were clenched and his nostrils were flared with rage.
"No! Bella, no!"
My ears were flooded with the freezing water, but his voice was clearer than ever. I ignored his words and concentrated on the sound of his voice. Why would I fight when I was so happy with where I was? Even as my lungs burned for more air and my legs cramped in the icy cold, I was content. I'd forgotten what real happiness felt like
Happiness. It made the whole dying thing pretty bearable.
The current won at the moment, it shoved me hard against the ground. Wait. The ground? How deep was I? I can see the sun above me so I can't be that far. I looked up and saw the shore about fifteen feet from me, but it was too late. I was out of air and I had no more strength.
Goodbye, my love. I thought as I drifted out of conciousness.

Edward's POV
(The night before Bella's POV)

Bella, Bella, Bella, Bella, I need to see my Bella. I thought as I curled up on the forest floor outside our new home. I can't stay away from her any longer. I need her. I can't be selfish. She needs to live her life without me. She is safer without me. My body ached, if that were possible. I need her. That's it! I am going to go get her. I can't live any longer without her.
I got on the next plane to Forks, without saying a word to anyone. Alice would probably see me go anyway and I couldn't let them see me in this sadness.
The plane trip felt long, as it was filled with anticipation for seeing my beautiful Bella. Will she still want me? Has she moved on? If I get back and she has moved on, I must live with that and not disturb her. I secretly hoped that she hadn't. I wanted to punch myself for saying that but it would be too strange for the people around me.
As soon as the plane landed, I was off to find a car. To my luck, I found a silver volvo just like my own. I drove as fast as I could to Bella's. She would be home by now, hopefully. Oops, I remember as I pulled up to Bella's street, that I would have to leave my car at our old home and run back to Bella's. I drove straight through town as fast as possible. I left the volvo outside our front door and ran to Bella's.
When I climbed in her window, no one was there. I'll just wait for her. It is only one o'clock, she could be anywhere. I am a cruel selfish person, I thought to myself while I waited. Just then, my phone rang.
"Hello Alice." I answered.
"Edward..... Bella......" she said.
"What? What's wrong?" I yelled.
"First Beach.... HURRY!" she said in an agonized voice.
I hung up the phone and bolted to first beach. Forget the treaty I thought. Bella is more important. As I reached the beach, I saw her. Her still body laying there. I ran to her and felt for her pulse. Her body was cold to the touch.
"NO NO NO!" I roared as loud as I could.
What can I do? It looked as if she had drowned not long ago. I tried to get the water out of her lungs. She started to breath barely, but she wouldn't survive with this broken spine. I could tell it was broken by the twisted way her body was. Blood streamed out of the top os her head, she must have hit a rock. If I could cry I would have tears pouring down my face. I realized then, the only thing that could save her was.... venom.
"Forgive me," I whispered as I plunged my teeth into the side of her neck. Then I moved down her arms and legs. All I could do was hope. I picked her up gently, trying hard not to move her spine. I had to get off the reservation before the wolves found me. I ran her to our empty, white house.

Bella's POV
"Alice saw your future blur! It's never happened before! I'm so glad your okay!" Edward said and he hugged me again.
"Really Edward? Didn't you think that I might have to use Billy and Jake to help explain to Charlie? Look at what you did to him." I said looking at poor Charlie again.
"I'm sorry, but it wasn't the same blur. Usually everything disappears, but it was like a film across the vision!" Edward said confused.
"Well we'll have to figure it out later. We have a bigger issue right now." I replied.
I walked over to the couch and sat down next to him, with my arm around him.
"It's ok, Dad. Calm down. Everything is fine." I said soothingly.
"He.... he came in so... so fast." He stuttered shocked.
"I'm so sorry to have scared you Chief Swan, I apologize." Edward said. I could hear the sincere apology in his voice and he looked worried now. Probably for Charlie's mental health. His thoughts must be out of wack too.
"Edward?" He asked confused.
"Yes Dad. It's Edward." I answered for Edward.
"But? You knew too?" Charlie asked.
"Yes. Again I apologize for this whole thing. We would've told you if we could've." He replied.
"We?" Charlie asked.
"The Cullens, Dad. They are vampires too." I answered.
"Is that where you have been this whole time, Bella?" Charlie whispered the question.
"So close.... " He said sadly. "You weren't there when I payed them a visit." He said slowly.
"Yes I was. And what you did to Edward was inexcuseable! Even if I had jumped off the cliff to die, it wouldn't have been his fault!" I said. There was anger in my voice now but I tried by best to tone it down. I wouldn't want to fight with Charlie right now.
"Bella, he left you in the middle of the forest!" Charlie said angrily.
"No I stupidly walked into the forest!" My voice was getting angrier. Jake cut in.
"Hey guys! Don't fight about this right now! This really isn't the best time." Jake commented.
Edward was in the corner, standing silent.
"You're right, Jake." I said. "Besides, you have to forgive Edward now."
"Why should I?" Charlie pressed.
"For two reasons. First of all, he saved my life." I answered happily.
"He.... did?" Charlie asked slowly.
"Yes he did!" I replied.
"I know I will regret asking this, but how?" Charlie asked.
"He bite me." I was trying to hold back a smile. Charlie looked as though he were going to vomit and my smile disappeared.
"It's okay, Dad. That was the only way he could save me." I said.
Charlie pulled it together.
"You said I would have to forgive him for two reasons. What is the other one?" Charlie's eye's narrowed as he said it.
"He's my husband!" I smiled widely and looked at Edward. He was smiling too.
"What?!" He almost yelled. "You got married and you didn't even tell me! You should've said that before all of this.... v..vampire nonsense." Charlie struggled to say the word the same way I had. "Come give me a hug!" Charlie said.
"You're not mad?" I asked suspiciously.
"No.... I'm just glad that you've been happy all this time and not.... dead." He whispered the last word. I hugged him tighter.
"Thanks Dad!" I said.
Then Charlie stood up and walked over to Edward. Charlie smiled and shook his hand.
"I'm sorry about what I said to you that day." Charlie said apologetically. "If I'd known, I would've never done that."
"Apology accepted." Edward smiled his dazzling smile.
"So have you two got any wedding pics I can see?" Charlie asked.
"Yes, but first we have to tell you something very important. No one can know about us. If you come and visit us, you can't tell people where you are going. No one can know Dad. You can't even tell Renee. She isn't strong enough to know. You have to promise." I said seriously.
"I swear on my life, Bells! I am just so happy to have you back!" He smiled.
"Oh and people are probably going to notice your change in attitude so try to keep your excitement down. If anyone askes, why your so happy, say something like it was hard for you to move on at first, but you have finally realized that becoming depressed wasn't helping anyone." I added.
"Ok, ok, Bells. Since when did you become such a good lier?" Charlie laughed. Edward and Jake did too. "Can we go now?" He asked.
"Sure. Jake? Billy? You guys are welcome too, you know." I said to them.
"Thanks Bella, but I'll let your Dad get used to everything first." Billy laughed.
"I'll be over with Ashley as soon as I take Dad home." Jake smiled at us.
"Ok. Ready to go Dad?" I asked.
"Just let me grab my shoes..." He answered and walked into the other room.
