Okay! If you've read La Traicion Ante De Muerte and the first 2 chapters of Shipwreck, then you'll like this story! In this, Jasper, Emmett, Edward, and Carlisle are drafted to Iraq (this takes place in the future because they haven't started drafting). Enjoy!


Bella's POV

I breathed in his deep scent as I woke up, his arms around me. My Angel was next to me, and I said to him, "Good morning."

"Good morning, sleepyhead," he replied.

"Hey, it's not my fault that I have to sleep and you don't."

"Maybe not, but that doesn't mean that I can't taunt you." I laughed, and he smiled at me.

"So, how was your sleep?" Edward questioned.

"Good. I killed Jacob."

"I know. I have ears."

I punched him playfully on the arm. I doubted he even felt it.

"So what are we doing today?" I asked him.

"Today, we are going go-kart racing. Everyone except Carlisle. He has to work."


"He has to work."

"No, not that. You expect me to be able to control a go-kart?"

"Don't worry. The go-kart fits 2. You can just cheer me on."

"Oh," I said. "Well, that works."

"Yes it does."

I snuggled up to him again. He held me in his arms. "Well, maybe you should get ready," he said.

"Fine, but I'll need a human moment."

He sighed. "Okay."

I took a shower, using the vanilla shampoo that Edward had grown to love more than strawberry.

When I was done, I wrapped myself in a towel to find that Edward had already laid something to wear. I teased him, saying, "My life has been so much easier ever since Edward has started doing my hardest task……….. He actually lays out my clothes!"

He smirked. As I was dressing, he closed his eyes, so that I could have some privacy. When I was done, he turned around and picked me up off of my feet, and jumped out of the window.

He placed me in his Volvo. As we drove to the go-kart place, we were both silent. I smiled at him, and he smiled back. That crooked smile of his that I loved to see more than anything except Edward himself.

We pulled into the parking lot, and I realized that it was also a mini-golf place. As we got out of the car, I realized that the rest of the family was waiting on us.

"What took you so long?" said Emmett. The rest of the family agreed. Except for Rosalie. She just shot me death glares, while Edward growled at her. I put my hand on his chest and gave him a look. He backed off of Rosalie. She smirked at him.

We got in line for the go-karts. As it was our turn, Edward said to me, "Pick out a car."


"Pick out a car."

"I'm not even going to be driving!"

"Yes, but my whole life revolves around you, and the only car I'd ever want is one that you want."

"Aww…… That's sweet! But it's not gonna work."

"Yes it is."

"No it's not."

"Yes it is."

"No it's not."

"Yes it is."

"No it……. fine! But only because you said so.

"I knew you'd agree."

"Yeah, yeah, gloat all you want. Ugh……….. Red!"

We climbed into the red go-kart, while everyone took their own. Edward put a helmet on my head. "Edward, you don't need helmets for go-kart racing."

"I want you to be extra-safe," he replied.

I laughed, and sat in the car. He sat in front of me, and turned around to kiss me.

As we were kissing, the engines roared to life. I pushed him back around, so that he could steer. As we propelled forward, I felt Rosalie, who was in a blue kart, rammed into us. I gave a small little scream as we ran into a wall. "I'm glad you gave me that helmet," I said jokingly to him. But his face was filled with anger. He turned us around again. As we sped up toward Rosalie, I yelled at him, "Edward! Edward! Stop!"

But he wasn't listening. We were going faster than most people dared to go in go-karts, or cars, even. We were heading towards Rosalie, fastly accelerating. As we rammed into her side, we stopped, and momentum carried me forward, almost breaking my seat belt, my helmet crashing into Edward's marble back. The impact gave me an immediate headache. Edward turned around. "Oh my god, Bella! Are you okay? I am so sorry! It's all my fault!!!"

"Edward, I'm fine," I insisted. But as I turned around, I saw Rosalie's face, and she was pissed. She started off towards us, but Edward steered us out of the way. As we neared the end of the track, the engines stopped quiet, while the wheels were still rolling. We slowed down, and Edward parked on the side of the road. He got out, not remembering that I was still there, and walked over to Rosalie's car. Rosalie got out too, and walked to meet Edward in the middle of the track. They immediately started yelling at each other, in that voice that was too fast and low for me to hear. I got out, took off the helmet, and walked along with Alice to the fight. I tried to their attention, but they wouldn't stop bickering. But Alice, being Alice, stopped it.

"SHUT UP!!!!!" They both looked at her as if she was crazy for breaking up the fight. "Look," she said. "Something important is going to happen. I don't know what, but I saw Edward opening a letter, get a worried look on his face, and then I snatch it and give it to Bella, who reads it, and faints. I don't know what the letter says, but we need to go home and find out."

Edward automatically came to my side, reassuring me that he would be okay. We walked to his car, with him holding me, half-carrying me. He set me down in the car, and I turned to him, who was already on the other side. I was speechless. It was obviously addressed to Edward, and if it was bad enough to faint… I was worried. I couldn't even imagine what was going to happen.

Edward drove fast, and before I knew it, we were at his house. The others had driven faster, and had been there a good minute or so. As we walked in, they all had sorrow on their faces. Emmett handed a letter to Edward. As Edward opened it, I gulped. When I knew that Edward was done reading it, I laid my hand out, but he wouldn't give it to me. As planned, Alice snuck up behind him and took the card, holding it out to me. I looked at it, and saw what it read.

Dear Edward Cullen,

We will need troops for the war in Iraq. We have decided to draft you……..

I didn't need to read the rest. I fell over, everything went black, and the last things I felt was a tear rolling down my eye, and Edward's cold arms around me, catching me as I fell.

So did you like it? If you didn't and don't want me to keep going, I won't. Review or else! I don't know what the or else is yet, but it'll be bad!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!
