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.

A NEW BEGINNING

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.
"Bella."
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."
Why?
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.

oh srry i thought u meant that the story sucked because i was tired. thanks.
Ya I sometimes do that no worries
Hey guys! I am srry that some of you didn't like the wedding chapter, and you are all probably going to hate this very short honeymoon chapter. It was really hard for me to write, but I promise that after this chapter the story will get back to its usual good self! Again I am really sorry if you don't like it! :(
Chp 32:

Bella's POV
Alice pulled me upto her room and pulled out a cute and comfy outfit for the plane. From the little hints I have gathered, we are going to be on the plane for quite a while.
"Here put this on!" Alice said a little irritated.
"I'm sorry Alice!" I said. She smiled.
"That's okay Bella. It seems that you can't control yourself." She giggled. I giggled too.
"Thank you so much Alice! This was the best day of my life and I am so glad that I let you plan it! You did a fantastic job!" I hugged her.
"You are so welcome Bella. Now hurry up and change or you will miss your flight." She said.
I quickly changed and went downstairs to say goodbye to everyone. We would only be gone a week though. Alice had already packed our bags in the car. From the amount she packed, it seems like we will be gone for atleast three months. I giggled to myself. Edward came downstairs in a minute and we headed out onto the porch.
"Bye everyone!" I waved. "See you in a week!" Edward just smiled and waved to them. I guess he already said his goodbyes.
We got into the Volvo and drove for about an hour to the airport. We barely caught the plane.
"Huston?" I asked him when we sat in our seats. Of course they were first class. I would have been happy traveling in coach.
"Just a stop on the way." He smiled.
It took us about two hours to get to Huston and then we had to wait an hour and a half in the airport for our next plane. We looked around the different gift shops while we waited. It was pretty boring. I kinda wished that I could sleep, just to pass the time. Finally we got on our plane and it was to Brazil. Where are we going?
"Edward, please just tell me. It's torture." I whinned.
"No. It will ruin the surprise. Trust me, it is worth waiting for." He said, chuckling.
"What's so funny?" I asked.
"Well you have hurt yourself so many times and ran off to a vampire. You said that was nothing. This is torture?" He chuckled.
"Yes it is!" I exclaimed.
"You are something special, Bella. And now you are my something special." He smiled.
"Wow that was very gushy." I said smiling.
"Sometimes it is fun to be gushy." He laughed.
The conversations went on like this for four hours. We finally landed in Rio de Janero. The city lights were so beautiful. Edward brought me over to a small, but fast sailboat. It was adorable. Something that you would see in a James Bond movie. We jumped on the boat and headed off into the darkness.
"Now will you tell me?" I begged.
"No, but we are almost there, so your torture will end." He said sarcastically.
After about twenty minutes, I could see a small patch of land getting closer. I wondered if this was where we are going.
"Can you see it?" Edward asked. I could hear excitement in his voice.
"Yes. Barely. What is it?" I asked.
"Isle Esme." He replied happily.
"Isle ESME?" I asked.
"Yup." He smiled. "Carlisle gave it to Esme as a gift and she let us borrow it." I hadn't guessed that Edward's excessive giving was a learned habit.
"Wow." Was all I could say.
I could see it clearer now. The island had a little beach all around it. Oh I really hope we are not camping.
We reached the island and Edward tied the boat to the dock. I started to feel a sickly nervous feeling in my gut. Uh oh!
Edward picked me out of the boat and carried me and the luggage to a small little cottage in the middle of the island. It was beautiful. Edward quickly unlocked the door and put me down inside. Neither of us said anything. I decided to break the silence.
"It is beautiful!" I smiled.
"Yes, Esme designed it herself." He smiled back.
I walked down the hall looking in to each room, until I reached one that had a giant, fluffy white bed.
"Woah! It is huge!" I giggled.
"I was thinking we could take a midnight dip first." He smiled.
"Sure sounds fun. I'll be out in a second." I said nervously.
"Don't take too long, Mrs. Cullen." He whispered in my ear before walking out onto the beach.
I had to calm myself down. I can do this! I looked up and Edward's clothes were hanging from a tree. I took a deep breath and got underdressed. I walked outside in a towel, and then hung it on the tree along with Edward's clothes. He was looking at the moon. I walked into the water.
"It's beautiful." I said.
"Not with you standing here." He objected.
I blacked out from there.

Chp 33:

Bella's POV
After the best week of my life, we had to return home. First I decided that we should spend our last day on the beach. We have to board the plane tonight, so we could spend the day having fun.
"Edward?" I asked.
"Yes, love?" He smiled.
"Can we spend our last day on the beach? We still have a few hours before we have to pack up and leave." I asked.
"Sure. That sounds great. We can look at different types of fish and sea stars. It will be fun!" He said enthusiastically.
"Yay! Let's go!" I squealed.
"Wow! This is the most excited you have been all week to get out of the house." He chuckled.
"Come on lazy bones." I pulled him out of bed.
"Okay okay. Just go get dressed." He laughed.
I walked over to my suitcase. Time to see what swimsuits Alice has packed for me. I have four choices, but they are all bikinis. A black and white striped one. A plain blue one. A rainbow one. Or a white one with orange flowers. I picked the black and white striped one. It looked pretty good on me. I am really loving my new vampire body. It made me feel better about wearing a bikini. I quickly brushed my hair and walked out onto the beach. Edward was already in the water of course. I dove in and swam way past him. I was under water, looking at fish, for about ten minutes before something grabbed my foot.
It was Edward. He pulled me above the water and I smiled at him.
"I couldn't find you. I wanna look at fish too." He whinned. It reminded me of Emmett.
"Okay come on then." I laughed.
We both dove under water and pointed out different fish to each other. We saw tons of lionfish, sting rays, and eels. We also saw clown fish, puffer fish, and angel fish. The coral reefs were so beautiful. There were dolphins too, but they steered clear of us. We were under water for hours and hours. It was so fun and romantic.
When it was time to swim back, I brought my head above water to see how far out we were. We were atleast three miles out! Woah! We swam back quickly, so we had time to take showers and pack. We were at the airport within two hours.
"That was one of the best days of my life! The fish were so magical and the coral reefs were amazing!" I exclaimed to Edward.
"They were." He agreed.
"You don't seem as excited." I said glumly.
"I really am! I am just a little sad that we have to leave." He said sadly. Oh atleast he enjoyed himself.
"We can always go back again, Edward." I said trying to cheer him up. It worked.
"Okay. Soon?" He asked.
"Sure, but I need to see people first, okay?" I replied.
"Okay. It's a deal." He smiled.
"That is what I like to see." I told him.
I called Alice and told her we were on our way home. She said that there was a little surprise waiting when we got back. Great!
