The Twilight Saga

This story takes place after Breaking Dawn: It's called Sunrise Tide, and is my fanfiction.


Chapter One-Bella's POV
I stared out the window in the bedroom of our cottage. Peering far out into the forest, I spotted them, using their laughter as a map. They were running, her on his furry back, almost home. It was raining out, but not too breezy. I sighed. I watched as Jake shifted back to human, his hair and bare chest dripping wet. Nessie was close behind, a big smile on her face. Only five years after her birth, yet she looked and acted the equivalence of a girl around the age of thirteen or fourteen. Yet she was far too advanced in her knowledge to be so young.
“We’re home!”, Jacob shouted, shaking his head furiously in an attempt to dry it.
I wrinkled my nose and gave him a small grin.
“Ugh, wet dog”, I noted.
He gave a small laugh, and just as abruptly, his smile turned into a frown and he rolled his eyes.
“Gotta go”, he said.
Nessie placed her palm on his neck, her expression pleading.
“Don’t go”, she whispered.
“I have to, honey”, he whispered back, leaning in closer.
I huffed, and he quickly turned around, a sheepish look on his face.
“See ya, Nessie”, he called, dashing into the forest.
Renesmee waved back, standing in the doorway and watching even after he was clearly out of sight.
“Nessie”, I said softly.
She turned, her quick movements graceful, and slammed the door shut.
‘Where’s Daddy?”, she asked, shaking her wet curls out the same way Jacob did.
“He went into town to pick up a present for Grandpa”, I said, running a finger through my daughter’s beautiful bronze curls. She was wearing a pale green silk dress, and matching flats. “Is that a new outfit?”, I noted, trying to make conversation.
She nodded, a grin filling her face.
“Aunt Alice got it for me yesterday. It’s for Grandpa Charlie’s party later.”
I sighed. Of course, she had to put it on two hours early to impress Jacob.
The thought made me shudder, which is odd, if you’re a vampire, like me. We’re never cold.
Nessie noticed, her chocolate brown eyes hinted me. But I pretended not to see it.
Renesmee looked as unbelievably beautiful as the first time I had held her, as a baby, if not more, but expressed it in a less childlike form now. Seeing her in “adult clothing”, the silk wrapped around her perfect, extra slender frame in a stylish way, made me a little nervous. She was almost fully matured, not only mentally, but physically. And it was hard to be prepared for all the things that would come with that new age. I’d only had five years to prepare. And though I didn’t sleep nights, it still came as a shock to me when Jacob displayed little tidbits of affection for my daughter. It was so weird to remember my blurry human days, when Jacob had done those things for me.
Just then, Edward came through the door, fashioning a jacket so he wouldn’t look too out of place in the town. In his hands were a giant box, wrapped up in silver wrapping paper and topped with a bow.
He gave me my favorite smile, and I dashed toward him like two magnets attracting. We kissed quickly, the big box in the way. He placed it on the floor gently, and sweeped me into his arms, then the same for Nessie.
He eyed her clothing.
“Alice”, he said, giving a velvety chuckle.
“Do you like my dress?”, she asked him.
“Of course. It’s beautiful.”
“What’s in the box?”, she said.
“Your grandfather’s new HD TV”, he answered.
“He’s never going to leave that old couch of his now”, I joked.
“Good thing Carlisle and Esme got him a new one”, Edward noted, smiling.
I smiled back, shaking my head.
We decided to go out and hunt for an hour, and then head over to the Cullen’s house to set up for the party. Little did I know of Alice’s upcoming vision……

Tell me what you think of the first chapter!

What about Midnight Sun is she going to finish it or not. I love it. And of course I want more, lol Who doesn't?
She stated on her website where the unfishished manuscript is posted that ever since the leak and all the coverage on it she hasn't been in the "mood" to write or finish it - on top of all that she has a lot of press for the movies right now so she hasn't even had much time to think. She did say that she would like to finish it and have it published but she wasn't sure when she would be able to get to it; but that ppl bugging her all the time was not helping at all. Be patient she will finish if we are all patient!

BTW I love it too a little more then Twilight Edward is so much more complicated and fascinating!
wow. its so good.
Chapter 23-Bella's POV-


Chapter 23
Bella’s POV

Dearest Cullens,
Thank you much for keeping over Volterra in our absence. There has been a false alarm and everything is well. We will be back early tomorrow morning. Again, much gratitude for our home’s safekeeping. If you are in need of anything, feel free to ask.
Sincerely,
Aro, Caius, Marcus and the Volturi Guard

“A false alarm?”, I asked.
“Stefan and Vladimir had gathered a small crowd, and one of their members found out about the hideout.”, Edward explained.
“As of right now their plans have been put aside. They want to attack when nobody’s suspecting anything”, he said.
I smiled, leaning over and touching my lips gently to Edward’s. A spark charged inside of me.
The last week or so spent in Volterra wasn’t nearly as comfortable as Forks. I missed our little cottage hidden in the overgrown forest near the larger Cullen house. The tall, leafy green trees that shone with moisture, the rainy wet, light gray atmosphere I relied on to be there every morning.
Jacob and Renesmee were out sightseeing. The rest of us were all condemned inside, on the first sun filled day since we’d gotten here.
Alice danced over to us, a new sketch in her hands. I groaned. All morning Alice had spent planning the wedding. She’d already gone through three sketchbooks, adding more and more detail each time.
“Bella, you’ll just love this one! I can see it”, she predicted, her voice tinkling with enthusiasm.
“It’s beautiful Alice, just like the last three hundred and seventy five designs you’ve shown me today”, I said dully, hardly taking a glance.
In less than a month, my daughter would be married. Only five years ago had been her birth. It didn’t seem right, even being a vampire, it was hard to get used to.
But Jacob was very manipulative. I had known from the very second Edward had read his mind that it would lead to marriage. That, or Jake would’ve tried to make progress his own way, before Nessie was a full vampire and couldn’t change. Jacob was about to become my son-in-law. That made things even stranger.
Even Rosalie was helping out with the arrangements.
“Obviously Renesmee can do much better than that dog”, she sniffed, “but who am I to judge?”
I smiled.
I wouldn’t put it past Rosalie to slip a dog collar onto Jake’s neck a minute before the ceremony started.
“Oh, Bella I almost forgot-”, Alice started, but as she spoke her eyes slowly became blank, a mid-glassy stare taking over her tiny frame.
I watched patiently as she contemplated over the vision now before her.
Edward stiffened by my side, reading everything she was viewing.
“Sunrise tide”, she whispered, her eyes fading back to normal.
“What?”, I asked.
“Carlisle!”, Edward called.
He rushed over, Edward speaking swiftly and quietly.
“Approximately how long would it take us to travel to Florida if we left today?”, he asked.
“I’d say two days, from Volterra. What is it, son?”, Carlisle asked.
Edward looked over to me, a startled look upon his face.
“What’s going on?”, Esme asked.
“Bella, it’s your mother. She’s going to drown”, Edward choked.
I gaped, horrified.
“When?”, I managed, the words barely stumbling out of my frozen mouth.
“I’m not exactly sure when. At sunrise tide. She’s going to go swimming at a beach not far from her home. The unexpected tide will grab her in”, he answered, wrapping an arm around my waist comfortingly.
My tearless eyes stung. I had hardly been able to gather enough courage to talk to Renee over the phone. So instead, I’d written her a letter, some pictures enclosed, explaining how I had gotten over the sickness, and then the false Renesmee story. When I finally did speak to her, she acted as if my voice was the same; the pictures of me weren’t too changed. My mother definitely knew something was going on, but allowed it, since it gave me the happiness I had waited so long for. Even harder was making up an excuse, year after year, of why we couldn’t get together. I’d used the flu, business trip, and redecorating amongst the rest to persuade her.
And now, I might never see her again.
“We’ve got to get to Jacksonville. Now”, I mumbled half-alive through my tearless sobs.
