A/N: Okay, this is my first Twilight story, I usually write Harry Potter stuff. But anyways, I hope you like it:)
How are you supposed to fight a friend? Someone you cared about? Someone who helped you through hard times when your lover could not? How were you supposed to stand there and watch them die?
The young man looked into my eyes with a pleading expression that made me want to cry, if I could. I closed my eyes, unable to watch the betrayal on his face while I just stood there doing nothing, unable to watch the light leave his eyes.
Chapter One: Anniversary
"Bella, how about you wear this dress? It really compliments your body shape" Alice smiled, holding up a dark purple dress.
I rolled my eyes, "Alice, I think I am perfectly capable of choosing my own outfit"
Edward laughed from the doorway where he watched with amused entertainment. "I think you should let her choose her own outfit Alice, I don't want to have any unspeakable thoughts from other men in my head tonight"
"But it's your one year anniversary! This is special! Please let me pick something out," Alice whined.
I stepped forward and took Alice's face between my hands, "Alice dear, I enjoy you helping me out all the time, but you need help. You have an addiction of this sort of thing"
Alice bowed her head, "But I just want to help"
I smiled and lifted her head to mine again, "I know, but why don't you let me pick out my own outfit this once?"
Alice smiled brightly, "Fine, I get to pick out Edward's outfit"
I looked over at Edward and laughed, his face was full of terror. Edward came forward and out his hand on Alice's shoulder, "Alice, maybe this once maybe Bella and I could pick out both of our own outfits?"
Alice sighed, "Fine, but the next big event there is I get to pick the outfits"
"Fine," Edward sighed.
Alice smiled brightly and bounced gracefully out of the room. I turned to Edward and raised an eyebrow. He laughed, "What?"
I rolled my eyes and walked into our big closet and glanced around it to see what I could wear. Edward came in behind me and around his arms around me. I put my hands over his and sighed, "I have no idea what to wear, but it would help if you tell me we're going"
Edward whispered in my ear, "How about I cancel our reservations and you don't have to wear anything at all"
I laughed and smacked Edward playfully in the arm. "I don't even get a small hint to where we're going?"
"Edward, you're impossible," I grumbled.
He laughed, "That's how you love me"
I didn't respond, but walked forward out of his arms and stared looking for clothes again. Edward sighed when I left his arms, but helped me look anyway. He held up a pair of faded jeans and a sweatshirt, "How about this?"
"That's what you want me to wear to our anniversary dinner?" I asked in disbelief.
"It's not a fancy place, and I want you be comfortable" Edward answered.
I raised my eyebrow but didn't question him. I grabbed the clothes out of his hands and he smiled. "What are you going to wear?" I asked.
Edward smiled, "Same thing, jeans and a sweatshirt"
I walked closer to him and kissed him on his lips, "Happy anniversary"
He chuckled and kissed my on my lips as I did to him, "You said that to me a hundred times already"
I smiled and leaned my chin against his chest so that I could look at him, "I like saying it"
He laughed, "Happy," he pecked me on my lips, "anniversary" He went to peck me again, but I grabbed his face and held his lips to mine. He chuckled, but didn't protest. I wrapped my arms around his neck while he pulled up out of the air, where my legs were securely wrapped around his waist.
"Save it for later lovebirds" Emmett laughed from behind us.
I broke away from Edward and gave Emmett a dirty look, normally I would just blush, but we all knew I couldn't do that anymore. Emmett laughed and put his hands in the air, "Whoa there Bella, sorry to interrupt this moment, but Charlie called. He said to wish you guys a happy anniversary"
I nodded and jumped down from Edward's chest, "Did you tell him about Renesmee?"
"Yeah, I told him you guys would drop her off in an hour or two. He seems excited to see her" Emmett rolled his eyes, "Everyone's always excited to see her"
I laughed, but my laugh soon disappeared at Edward's serious face. "What do you mean another vampire is in town?"
Emmett sighed, "I hate when you read my mind"
Edward growled, "Just answer the damn question"
I started between Edward and Emmett, waiting for someone to explain what was going on. Emmett spoke tiredly, like he was bored. "All we know is that there's a vampire in town. I guess someone got murdered last night; Carlisle put two and two together and found out it was a vampire. No other murders were committed, for all we know he could already he gone"
"Did Alice see anything?" I asked quietly.
Emmett turned to look at me, "No. We think it's because the vampire already left, but why would be just come to Forks, kill a human, and then leave? It seems so strange to me. Not usual vampire behavior"
Edward's face showed shock, "Didn't he drink any of the person's blood?"
Emmett shook his head, "None at all. We're thinking it's just a revenge murder, nothing to do with the thirst"
"But how to you know it's a vampire then?" I asked, curious.
"Because Carlisle and Esme went down to the crime scene to check it out. It wasn't the scent of human that they smelled, it was vampire," Emmett answered.
I sighed, "Do you guys have any leads?"
"Not yet. Without Alice this case is probably unsolvable. Either this guy has a power we don't know about or something's wrong with Alice" Emmett said, leaning against the doorframe.
Edward walked out of the closet and past Emmett, "That's a good idea, talk to Jacob"
Emmett groaned, "Would you please stop that?"
"Sorry, I can't help it" Edward answered.
"Where are you going?" I asked, coming to stand next to Emmett.
Edward looked at me sadly, "I want to check out that scent for myself, but don't worry I'll be back in no time"
I sighed and kissed Edward lightly in a silent good-bye. I turned to Emmett as soon as Edward was out the door, "Why is this vampire so important?"
Emmett put an arm around me as we walked slowly back to the main house and out of our small cabin. "Because of what the vampire did. It's very unusual for a vampire to not drink the blood of its victims. That's what makes this vampire so different, and plus without Alice helping us out we have no idea what's going on"
I sighed, "I guess it does sound strange"
Emmett nodded as we got to the back down and let ourselves in. "Mommy!" Renesmee cried and she flung her self into my arms. I laughed and kissed my daughter lightly. Renesmee touched her hand to my cheek; I saw Carlisle's face talking about the strange vampire.
"Mommy, where's daddy?" she asked in her small, soprano voice.
I looked down at my beautiful daughter, "He just has to check something out really quick, daddy will be home soon"
I smiled down at my little 'Nessie'.
"Oh, and mommy?"
Renesmee smiled, "Happy anniversary"
