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.

Chp 81:

3 weeks later…

Edward’s POV

“Look, Edward. I’m sorry to have to tell you this, but if Bella doesn’t wake up this week, we are going to bury her. I think she is dead.” Carlisle told me sadly. I saw that he wanted to sob too, but I couldn’t comprehend what he was trying to tell me.

“What?! No! She’s alive! I’m begging you! She’s alive! I know it! I can feel it!” I sobbed, trying to get him to understand.

“Edward. We all want you to be right, but if she’s not, you can’t spend your whole existence hugging a corpse.” Alice said quietly.

“She’s right, hon. I want you to be right, more than I’ve ever wanted anything ever before. You know I love Bella. But…. But…. If she’s gone, she deserves a burial.” Esme cried into Carlisle’s chest. He was trying his best to comfort her, but he was upset as well.

I sobbed and sobbed.

“Bella. Bella. Bella. Please wake up! I need you! You can’t be dead! Wake up wake up wake up! I love you so much Bella….” I cried and cried, holding her body in my arms.

1 week later….

Edward’s POV

Today was the day. My week was gone and Bella hadn’t woken up.

I heard the painful thoughts of my family members as they thought about her burial. Esme was sobbing and thinking about how no one had informed Charlie. Carlisle was thinking about ways to get the body from me and how much happiness Bella had brought our family. Alice was thinking about all the shopping trips and torture she had put Bella through, willing Bella in her mind to forgive her. Jasper was tortured by the onslaught of everyone’s depressed feelings. Emmett was thinking about all the great times he and Bella had hunting. Rose was thinking about how mean she was to Bella at first and how she wished she could take it all back. Ashley was thinking about how Bella was so nice to her when Jake introduced and how she thought a vamp was supposed to be. Jake’s was thinking about….. well Jake’s thoughts were really just a mess. Different scenes of him and Bella hanging out and how much he loved her were playing through his head. He was hurting nearly as much as me.

I tuned them out, so that I could spend my last few moments with Bella. Esme was right. Bella deserved a proper burial, so I wouldn’t fight my family over it. After the burial, I would….. I don’t know where I’d go now. I can’t get the Volturi to kill me, they’re dead. I would have to find some nomads, start a fight, and let them win. Then I’ll be with my darling Bella.

Carlisle’s POV

I knocked on Edward’s door, even though he knew I was there.

“Edward, it’s time.” I whispered sadly, I know he heard.

He got up and opened the door, with Bella’s body in his arms. She looked so still and unhappy. I’m going to miss the life she brought to the house, and the changed Edward she created. Surely I won’t see him again….. for ever…..

I sobbed on the inside. I couldn’t upset Esme anymore than she already was.

We walked downstairs together, to put Bella in a coffin, how ironic.

“We are going to have the ceremony in here first, if you don’t mind, Edward.” I said sadly.

He just nodded in agreement.

“Would anyone like to go first?” I asked around. Alice stepped forward.

She stopped her sobbing as best as she could before beginning.

“Bella. You were the best friend I ever had. You brought so much happiness and life to this family and you didn’t even realize it. You made our family complete. You didn’t deserve to die this way and I’m sorry we didn’t do a better job of protecting. You will always be my sister and my best friend…. I love you…” Alice sobbed and gave Bella’s lifeless corpse a hug and a kiss on the cheek. Jasper picked Alice up and held her in his arms while she sobbed.

Esme stepped forward next.

“Bella. I can’t believe you left us this way. You alone made Edward happy. You brought so much joy to my family and for that I thank you. You are the sweetest little girl on the planet and Charlie and Renee were lucky to have you. I’ll miss you so much. I love you like my own daughter, and I’m so glad that you smelt that way to Edward otherwise we might’ve never met your darling self.” Esme stepped back and held in her sobs, she was trying to be strong for Edward, but it wouldn’t last long.

Emmet stepped up.
“You were the clumsiest human I’d ever seen. Those slip ups and involuntary mistakes brought laughter and fun to the house, and I know you didn’t like it, but it still made us smile. At first I thought Edward was crazy, I thought loving a human was like falling in love with a moose. But after meeting you, I understood why he loved you so much, you were full of life and fun. It was funny to watch you and it is still a mystery to us all as to how you accepted us as easily as if we were human. I love you Bella, and this house is going to be a hell hole without you.” Emmett was manly and held in those sobs, but you could see the sadness in his eyes.

Now was Jasper’s turn.

“I know we weren’t close while you were human, and I regret that I missed out on that time with you. I just didn’t want to slip up and kill you. I’m sorry for what happened at your 18th birthday party. That seems to have been a major turning point in your life and that mistake is all mine. If you hear me, I hope you can forgive me. You can trust me when I say that everyone here loves you more than you can imagine, we are so sad without you Bella. Thanks for everything, including putting up with my wife’s crazy fashion obsession. I’ll miss you.” Jasper was holding himself together well, all the sadness must be killing him.

Rose stood up.

“Bella I am so so so so sorry for ever being mean to you! You are a great gal and an awesome sister and I am going to miss you so so so much. I love you. I can’t believe you’re gone. Our family needs you to be complete. I just want you to know that we will never forget you.” Rose was short and sweet. She cried into Emmett’s chest.

Jacob and Ashley stood up together.

“Bella you are and will always be my best friend. You know that I used to love you more than just like a sister, and even though I have Ash now, I love you just as much. But jeez, you made some silly mistakes Bells. I’m sorry about what I said to you the other night. I’ll never get to apologize to you in person and it’s all my fault. I don’t blame you if you don’t forgive me. I’ll miss you forever. I love you so so so so so much.”

“Bella. I know I didn’t know you long, but I love you like a sister. I will never forget you, because you were always so nice to me. I love you. I miss you already.” Ash sat down on Jake’s lap and it was finally my turn.

“Well everyone has basically covered everything I meant to say, but I’m going to repeat it anway. Bella I love you. You are like a daughter to me and thank you for all the happiness you brought us. I’m sorry your life had to end the way it did. We will always remember you. You are the best thing that ever happened to us. I don’t think anything could ever replace you.” I wanted to fall apart there, but it was Edward’s turn and we all had to be ready to help if things went badly.

As Edward began, I could see that his soul was disappearing as he said these final words to Bella. He was going to do anything to off himself after this. Anything to be with Bella.

“Bella. You know how much I love you. No matter how much you couldn’t understand about me loving you, I did. With all my heart I loved you and I will never let you go. You are my angel, my savior. There are so many things I should say sorry for, but then this goodbye would go on for hours. Look, I want to be sorry for ever meeting you, but I’m selfish. I am so thankful that you came into my life and if I had to do it over, I wouldn’t change anything but this ending. I love you and I hope to see you soon.” He kissed her on the lips and backed away sobbing.

Everyone started sobbing harder than ever, knowing that this was the last time we’d ever see Bella.

“What’s all the commotion about????” A weak voice whispered. Everyone looked up in shock and hope.

Dun Dun DAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! Bella’s dead, or is she?????? Who was that voice???? Cliff hanger. More soon, I promise!!!!!!!!!!!
