Disclaimer- I still do not own Twilight or New Moon. No, that privilege belongs to the wonderful Stephenie Meyer. I also do not own the song Remember When by Alan Jackson.
Remember when I was young and so were you
And time stood still and love was all we knew
You were the first, so was I
We made love and then you cried
Remember when we vowed the vows
And walked the walk
Gave our hearts, made the start, it was hard
We lived and learned, life threw curves
There was joy, there was hurt
Bella's POV(right before she jumps off the cliff)
I stepped out of my truck onto the wet ground. I barely noticed how the rain soaked through my clothes. Soon, but not soon enough, I found myself standing dangerously close to the edge.
Images seemed to bombard me. Just like in the movies, I seemed to be having flashbacks from my life. In all of these images I only saw one thing.
There Edward was: I saw him saving me from being squished by Tyler's van. I saw myself telling him my crazy theories about what I thought he was during lunch. I saw him saving me from those people in Port Angles. I saw the dinner he took me to afterwards. I saw myself with him in his car when I had finally figured out he was a vampire. I saw Edward and myself in the meadow where he was shining magnificently. I saw him when he was with me in the hospital when I was getting over my being attacked by James. I saw myself running towards him in Italy; intent on getting to him before he stepped in the sun.
And then, I saw our first kiss.
I took a sharp intake of breath. This image, along with all the others, was so nice… pleasant… yet still torturous at the same time.
In the back of my mind I remembered the last time I was here. It was when Edward had left me and I decided I would go cliff diving for 'recreational purposes.' Of course, at the time I had only been intent on one thing: hearing Edward's angelic voice.
Edward. Edward. Edward.
I couldn't bear it anymore.
Remember when old ones died and new were born
And life was changed, disassembled, rearranged
We came together, fell apart
And broke each other's hearts
"I'm coming, Edward." I whispered. Just then, the wind picked up around me. With it, I heard his voice once more before I plunged into the icy raging depths.
"I love you, Bella." I heard his voice say. I remembered that those were the last words he had said to me on that fateful day. If I was thinking rationally I probably would of thought it a trick of my mind; something that my subconscious had made up in my last moments to bring me some small form of solace.
But deep in my heart and soul, I knew this wasn't the case as the wind blew around me. Very faintly, I could smell his heavenly sent that was better than any cologne or perfume carrying on the wind.
He was with me. I just knew it.
I smiled my first real smile since the disaster. Then, I leaned forward and fell.
My only regret was that I wouldn't be able to see Edward's wonderful face one last time before I died.
Remember when the sound of little feet
Was the music
We danced to week for week
Brought back the love, we found trust
Vowed we'd never give it up
The tides were strong. There was no way I would ever be able to fight them even if I wanted to. Almost immediately after I hit the water, I felt a strange warmth engulf me. He was still here. He was still with me, even as I died…
Through the dark icy depths, I saw the most beautiful thing I had ever seen.
Edward, perfect as ever, stood right beside me. There seemed to be a few differences about him, though. His eyes, once golden, were now an even more beautiful green. His skin seemed a little bit darker, not as white. It was then I realized it; this was what Edward looked like as a human.
He reached out his hand, a welcoming smile on his face. Automatically, I smiled back and reached out my hand to grasp his. As soon as our hands met, I felt myself leaving the horribly cruel, cold waters.
Edward, my angel, brought me above the water and onto the land that I had so recently jumped off of. I only vaguely realized that I wasn't in my body anymore. That had been left behind in the waters. It didn't matter to me, though. I would give up anything to be with Edward.
Suddenly, we stopped moving. Edward and I stood looking at each other. He smiled my favorite crooked at me. I soon felt myself getting lost in that smile. Edward, my Edward, was too perfect. I smiled widely back at him.
Remember when thirty seemed so old
Now lookin' back, it's just a steppin' stone
To where we are,
Where we've been
Said we'd do it all again
"I love you," I heard his voice, better than ever, say to me.
"I love you, too." I replied, complete and utter honesty in my voice.
Then, a bright light enveloped us. Edward quickly grasped both my hands in his before leaning forward and kissing me as we had done so many times before in my memories. I felt my eyes close as I kissed him back.
When my eyes opened again we were not in the same place we had been before. We were not at the cliff. I looked around the beautiful place, curious. I looked back at Edward's eyes with a questioning expression. He smiled again and gestured to his right.
I looked to where he was gesturing and saw both of my families: my vampire one and my human one. It seemed, though, like Edward, the ones that were once vampires were once again human in appearances. Their eyes had all lost the golden hue only to be replaced with other colors. Charlie, Renee, and Phil were there as well.
Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when
Esme smiled kindly and motherly at Edward and I; the same smile I had seen on her face every time I had ever seen her.
Carlisle has his arm around her shoulders, looking extremely fatherly. His eyes showed unmatched compassion.
Alice looked her usual happy, perky self as she waved over at us. A huge smile was on her face. I wondered if by coming here she had gotten back her memories of her human life.
Jasper had the hand that Alice wasn't waving at us tightly bound in his, as if if he loosened his hold on her hand she would suddenly disappear from his sight.
Rosalie was as stunning as ever. She smiled timidly at us, as if she was afraid that we were mad at her or something. I smiled at her reassuringly. She seemed to take relief in that, for I saw her relax a bit.
Emmett looked as if he was holding back one of his big, booming laughs as he brought Rosalie closer to himself.
Renee was her usual self. She smiled as she looked at how Edward and I were embracing. I could practically hear her breezy voice telling me how proud she was, even though no words escaped her lips. Phil stood by her side, looking a little awkward.
Finally, there was Charlie. He was the only one without someone to embrace, but he didn't seem bothered by that fact. He shifted from foot to foot nervously, as if unsure of what to do. I knew he had never been one to show emotions well, but I knew all I needed to know by looking at his face.
Suddenly excited to see my families, I felt my feet move as I ran to go meet them. As I ran, Edward matched me stride for stride. He stood by my side, as I had a feeling he now would for all eternity.
Once again, I cried. I hope you all liked it. Yes, I decided to make it a two-shot since some of my friends wanted me to and because of some of the reviews I got. I hope this helps make the story a little happier. This chapter was a little shorter than the other one, but I think I got the message out that I wanted. Well, at least I hope I did. This was another song on my i-tunes that I have had for a while. I listened to it and figured that it fit a little bit. I was pleasantly surprised to be able to find a song for this one so easily. So, what did you think? Reviews would be nice, just so I can know if it really was as good as I hope it was. Oh, and thank you all my reviewers. I really appreciated them! If it wasn't for them I probably wouldn't of made this chapter.
