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.

Hey guys. Before you start reading I would just like to let you know that I am sorrier than you could imagine that I can not ever post on time or even on a regular basis like I try to do for you guys. I’m really thankful that you still stick with me and keep reading no matter how long it takes me to post what is usually an incredibly short chapter. I’ve gotta say that I am glad that I am not a professional author because I would be broke if I were because I can never get anything done EVER. I am a procrastinator. It is one of the many things that suck about me. Lol. Anyway I sincerely hope that this chapter you are about to read was worth the wait. Luv Inara. :D Thank you.

Chp 83:

Bella’s POV

I laid down on the bed in our room and just stared at the ceiling for a minute. I knew Edward was staring at me, probably waiting for answers or for me to listen to how stupid it was of me to save him, but I just couldn’t get over the fact of how good it felt to be rid of the pain from the comma-like state I had been in. I would’ve taken the pain from changing to a vampire a thousand times over again happily rather than the pain from the comma.

“Well…” I sighed.

“I am so glad you are okay Bella.” Edward said lovingly and pulled me into a kiss.

“I’m so glad you didn’t hurt yourself Edward. I don’t care what happens to me, I don’t ever want to hear that you’ve hurt yourself because of me. Or for any other reason for that matter!” I exclaimed to him.

“I know Bella. I’m sorry. It’s just that this has been the worst month of my life and I don’t ever want to live without you. Thank you so much for saving me, but I couldn’t have continued living if you had sacrificed your life for mine.” He said sadly.

“This has been the worst thing that has ever happened in my whole existence. The pain of thinking you were gone was way worse than finding out that you had been kidnapped. I love you so so much and so does everyone else here. I don’t think this place would’ve ever have been the same if you hadn’t have woken up.” He was almost sobbing. I knew he was upset then because Edward really tries his hardest not to sob in front of anyone.

“Not that you were planning on hanging around to see it…” I whispered to myself.

I looked back up into his eyes and he was debating something with himself.

“Please spit it out Edward. There is nothing you can’t ask of me.” I smiled and kissed him full on.

After I pulled away he grinned in surprise, but the look passed quickly because he was still thinking about what ever it was from before.

“Bella…. I… I .. want to know the truth about your comma. Not just for me, but for Carlisle’s medical studies about vampires. What was it like?” He asked slowly.

I grimaced. He was gonna beat himself up more if I told him the truth. But he would catch me in the lie; there was nothing else to distract him with.

“Edward, I don’t think that is something you wanna know.” I said quietly, refusing to look into his eyes. If I looked into his eyes, I would give into his pleading look.

“Please Bella. It is something I HAVE to know.” He pulled my face up to his so he could look into my eyes. He was trying to get me to cave I just knew it.

“Just pull your shield away for a minute, you don’t need to show me much, but I need to know. I just can’t stand it. It must’ve hurt if you haven’t told me.” Edward begged. His eyes begging. Of course, I caved.

“Fine. But I need to speak to someone first. Just wait here for a minute. I’ll be back.” I answered and fled the room to speak to Carlisle. He needed to know the truth first.

Carlisle was in his study. I gently knocked on the door.

“Come on in Bella.” Carlisle smiled as I opened the door. “What brings you in for a visit?” He asked curiously.

“Edward was telling me that you wanted to know what it was like in the comma, for learning purposes, and I promised I would show Edward, but I just want you to hear it from me rather than Edward.” I explained.

“Oh Bella please don’t think I’m forcing you into it. It was a passing thought in my head. I don’t want to upset you, you just woke up for goodness sakes.” Carlisle said.

“No, it’s fine. I want you to know, incase it helps in other cases.” I replied.

“As long as you’re sure, I would like to hear.” Carlisle smiled.

“Ok…. Well…” I sighed. “First off, you should know that it was the most painful experience I’ve ever had. Thousands of times worse than the changing pain. My body felt like it was being ripped in all directions possible with the added burning pain. I felt so dizzy, like I was spinning around and around in the dark. And I couldn’t bring up any visual images in my mind. It was terrifying. I thought someone had killed me and that Edward had been correct about the soulless thing and I was in hell.” I stopped Carlisle looked shocked and upset, but interested at the same time.

“I’m so so so sorry Bella.” Carlisle looked sad. “It seems you can never escape things like this. Such horrible luck.”

“It’s okay now. I’m fine. But I wouldn’t be surprised if the Volturi rose from the dead to kill me now. It does seem that danger stops at nothing to bug me.” I laughed. “Anyway I hope that information offers you some help in the future.” I stood to go back to Edward.

“Thank you Bella, but are you sure you want to show Edward. It’s gonna be bad.” He replied.

“I definitely never want him to know, but I can’t deny him anything. I just… I just can’t.” I answered before returning to Edward.

This time Edward was the one staring at the ceiling. He looked to me when I entered.

“Miss me much?” I asked with a loving smile.

“Incredibly so.” He smiled back and gave me a kiss.

I took his hand and looked into his eyes.

“Edward, I want you to promise me, that if I show you, you will not destroy anything and will try your best to stay calm.” I asked him.

“I will try Bella, but I cannot promise good results.” He replied worried.

“Alright, but just remember that you asked to see this and if you hadn’t have, I would never have shown you this.”

With that last sentence lingering in his mind, I let him under my shield and showed him everything. I watched his face as he read and saw everything I felt through that comma. His face was so angry and upset. I knew he was going to explode.

When my memory finished I let my shield fall back into place and Edward opened his eyes. Before I could speak, he took off out our window into the forest. I was shocked and I jumped up to follow him.

“Edward!” I yelled. “Come back. It’s okay, it’s over!” I called out for him but he kept running and running. I had to catch up.

Before I knew it, my new and stronger powers had kicked in and I was almost right on his tail. I jumped on him and brought him to the ground. He was sobbing and trying to get back up but I held on to him with my extreme strength.

He wouldn’t look at me.

“Edward please look at me. I love you. It’s ok. I’m okay, but I won’t be if you don’t calm down.” He still wouldn’t look at me, but he started talking.

“I’m so so sorry Bella. So sorry. Things like this shouldn’t happen to someone as great as you. You didn’t deserve that. And I shouldn’t have given him the opportunity to get the upper hand on me. If he hadn’t have, you would’ve never been hurt. I’m so sorry. I have brought every possible horrible thing down on you and you continuously forgive me. It’s not fair of me to have done this to your life. You would’ve been better off with Jacob. He even deserved you.” He said sobbing still trying to run.

“Edward. I love you and no one else. This is not what you did to me. You don’t need to be sorry. You promised me that if I’d show you, that you’d try to remain calm. You broke your promise. If you want something to feel guilty about, feel guilty about that. Jake. I would not have been better off with Jake. Ash would’ve come along by now and I would’ve been heartbroken and out of the picture. You are constantly saving me and no matter what you say, you are my life you always have been. Not the other way around. Stop doing this. Stop blaming yourself. Because it hurts me too much. I would endure any amount of pain for you Edward. Come back home when you’re ready. I can’t take this.” I told him and now I was sobbing.

I pulled him around and kissed him before running back to the house sobbing. I needed to talk to someone. I needed to find Jake or Alice.

Well, was it worth the wait? You tell me! Please comment! :D
