That Summer

I went to work for her that summer

A teenage kid so far from home

She was a lonely widow woman

Hell-bent to make it on her own

We were a thousand miles from nowhere

Wheat fields as far as I could see

Both needing something from each other

Not knowing yet what that might be

Jake's POV

I knocked on the door to Bella's house and waited for her to answer the door. I hadn't really wanted to come, but I did at the same time. After all, just yesterday the worst thing that could of possibly happened to her happened. It was originally meant to be the best day of her life. If only someone would of known what would have happened.

I had been there, but I hadn't been able to do anything to stop it. Yesterday, even though I did my best to stop it, her world crumbled. I had to check on her. I was afraid she would do something drastic. After a few more moments, the door opened to reveal her tear-stained face.

"Oh, Jacob." Her voice was lifeless. I felt my heart tug at how pathetic it sounded. Still, I did my best to remain cheerful. For her sake.

"Hello, Bella. Could I come in?" I asked. She seemed hesitant at first, but nodded and opened the door wider so I could step inside. I did so and followed her into the kitchen.

"Would you like anything to eat?" Bella asked. Once again I felt horrible for her. I shook my head 'no' and sat down at the table. She followed suit and sat across from me.

'Till she came to me one evening

Hot cup of coffee and a smile

In a dress that I was certain

She hadn't worn in quite a while

There was a difference in her laughter

There was a softness in her eyes

And on the air there was a hunger

Even a boy could recognize

The silence was deafening. I struggled for something to say to her. She seemed to be trying to look anywhere but me. As I continued to look at her I could tell she was certainly different. She was broken.

"Bella…" My voice showed how worried about her I was. It was then that she looked at me. Her eyes told me everything. I could see her emotions so clearly. Suddenly, I knew what she was going to do. My eyes widened slightly.

"Bella, you can't…" I felt my voice crack. She looked at me, her almost dead eyes piercing. I suddenly knew there was nothing I could do to change her mind.

"Jake, I have to. I can't deal with it anymore. Please understand." She said. Her lifeless voice was determined. I couldn't help but feel a sense of hope come from her. Of course, hope that by doing this she would get to see him again.

She had a need to feel the thunder

To chase the lightning from the sky

To watch a storm with all its wonder

Raging in her lover's eyes

She had to ride the heat of passion

Like a comet burning bright

Rushing headlong in the wind

Now where only dreams have been

Burning both ends of the night


I watched them both as they looked into each other's eyes. This was their big day. Edward and Bella were getting married. I could tell they couldn't be happier. Even though vampires and werewolves where natural enemies, I felt happy for them.

They stood under the alter. Their emotions played clearly on their face. I felt as if by just looking at how in love they were I would be consumed by the strength of it. I couldn't help but smile at them, even if I was very fidgety because of all the vampires here. It took all my self-control not to attack the vampires, but I did it. For Bella.

I watched as they both said 'I do' and kissed. That was when it all went wrong.

That summer wind was all around me

Nothing between us but the night

When I told her that I never

She softly whispered that's alright

And then I watched her hands of leather

Turn to velvet in a touch

There's never been another summer

That I have ever learned so much

Suddenly, many vampires jumped out of the trees and into the meadow that the wedding was taking place in. I immediately jumped to my feet, wondering just what all these unfamiliar vampires where doing here. It was then that I noticed that not all of them were unfamiliar. In the group was the red headed leech that my pack had been trying to catch.

I wasn't the only one to notice this, of course. Edward quickly stepped in front of Bella, obviously planning to protect her. The other vampires that where here for the wedding, the Cullens and a coven from Alaska, stood up. The few humans that where here seemed startled, as they should be.

I suddenly felt myself wishing that the rest of my pack had come to this wedding. I was the only werewolf here as vampires attacked.

What happened next happened so fast that I was powerless to do anything about it.

She had a need to feel the thunder

To chase the lightning from the sky

To watch the storm with all its wonder

Written in her lover's eyes

She had to ride the heat of passion

Like a comet burning bright

Rushing headlong in the wind

Now where only dreams of been

Burning both ends of the night

The red head jumped up, right to where Edward and Bella where. Edward quickly positioned himself so that Bella wouldn't get hit and he would get the full brunt of the attack.

The red head hit him, sending him flying backwards. He hit the ground with a sickening 'thud.'

"EDWARD!" Bella screamed. She ran over to him as fast as her legs would take her, screaming his name desperately as she did so. She dropped to her knees as she got to his side and began to desperately beg him to get up. Tears ran down her face as she did this. Edward pulled himself off the ground, trying to get up. I was reminded vaguely that you couldn't kill a vampire unless you tore him to pieces and burned the remains. So, he was still alive, even though he wasn't doing to good.

By now fights between the two groups of vampires were taking place. The battling was vicious. The few humans that where there didn't stand a chance. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Bella's father. A vampire was coming up right behind him, but he was to busy trying to get to his daughter to notice.

I willed my legs to move, so I could stop what was happening, but I was a second too late. Blood splattered as the vampire plunged his hand where her father's heart would be.

Charlie was dead.

With my fury guiding my actions, I turned into my werewolf form and made quick work of the vampire that killed him. I looked to where Bella was and saw that she had seen her father's death. Her chocolate brown eyes where wide as she stared at his lifeless body.

Edward was once again doing his best to protect Bella as the red head battled with him. He was not looking good at all. I ran over to them, planning on helping them, but when I got there Edward spoke the five words that would change everything.

"Get Bella out of here." He commanded. Understanding, I went back to a human and picked Bella up and placed her close to my chest so she would be safer.

Right before I began to run to get Bella away, Edward spoke the last words he would ever say.

"I love you, Bella." He said, just loud enough for Bella to hear. Through her tears, Bella replied, truth in every word.

"I love you, too!"

End Flashback

I often think about that summer

The sweat, the moonlight, and the lace

And I have rarely held another

When I haven't seen her face

And every time I pass a wheat field

And watch it dancing in the wind

Although I know it isn't real

I just can't help but feel

Her hungry arms again

As I recalled what had happened I could tell Bella was remembering it, too. After I had brought Bella to safety, I had tried to go back to help, but when I got there I was to late. The meadow was on fire. No one but us had escaped the fire. It had killed everyone, vampire and human, that was in the meadow.

Tears came to Bella's face and I could tell she was remembering about when I had told her about what had happened after I left her to go back and try to help. The memory seemed to be too much for her. She shook her head. It was then that I knew she wanted me to leave.

"I probably should be going." I said as I stood up. As she looked at me once again, her eyes where lifeless.

"Goodbye, Jake." She said. I knew there was a double meaning behind her words right as she said them. The thought sent a pang of dread through me. Still, I knew I needed to reply.

"Bye." It took all the strength I had just to say that and not to tell her not to do what I knew she would do after I left. She got up out of the chair and gave me a small hug. I knew clearly what it meant. It was another way of her saying goodbye. She stopped the hug after a few moments and let me leave. I made it look like I was leaving, but I really hid my car from the driveway and hid so I could see what would happen.

Bella walked out of her house and into her truck. I watched her get in from my hiding spot and close the door. As she drove off I knew exactly where she was going.

Bella was going to the cliff.

She had a need to feel the thunder

To chase the lightning from the sky

To watch a storm with all its wonder

Written in her lovers eyes

She had to ride the heat of passion

Like a comet burning bright

Rushing headlong in the wind

Now where only dreams have been

Burning both ends of the night

I had followed her to the cliff. To the place she planned to end her life. I wanted desperately to stop her, but something kept me from it. Afterward when I thought about it I knew what it was, though. Bella wasn't happy. She didn't have anything to live for anymore. Edward, Charlie, the Cullens, most everyone she had ever cared about was dead and she planned to join them.

From where I was I watched her get out of her truck and step to the edge of the cliff. I just barely caught her words as she stood at the edge.

"I'm coming, Edward." She said. I saw the wind pick up around her and I knew she wasn't alone as she stood there. And with that, she leaned forward and fell. It was then I seemed to find my legs. I ran forward, planning to try and stop her, but I was too late.

Bella was already in the raging water at the bottom on the cliff. I knew that she wouldn't be resurfacing, either. She was dead.

Rushing headlong in the wind

Now where only dreams have been

Burning both ends of the night

"No…" I mumbled as I looked at the spot where Bella had been seconds before. I stared at it for a while, as if by doing this it would bring her back, but no such thing happened.

It was then that something in the corner of my eye caught my attention. My head quickly whipped around and I was a little surprised at what I saw.

Two transparent figures that I immediately made out to be Bella and Edward were now standing together, looking into each other's eyes. A wide smile was spread across both of their faces.

I felt myself blink and they were gone. It was then I knew.

Edward and Bella had now been reunited. They didn't have to suffer anymore.

They would be together forever.


Awww. I cried when I wrote this. I was listening to this song on my computer once and had the idea for this appear in my head. At first I didn't really want to write it. After all, I have another story I am working on right now and the fact that I am horrible at writing such sad things. Still, the idea refused to leave until I wrote it down. So, I hope you liked this little one-shot. I thought after I wrote this about making it a two-shot and having the second chapter being about how Bella and Edward met in heaven or have a chapter in someone else's POV, but I'm not sure if I will do that. After all, I still need to work on my other story. Still, you never know, if you guys really want me to I might do it. I guess it just depends on if others think I should do.
