I'm so so soooo, sorry that it took me this long just to update. I have been busy, and I know I say that a lot, but it's true. Anyways, I'll keep trying to update as much as I can. I have a feeling though that this story is coming to an end. I can't wait to start writing my other story's too. I want to thank all of my readers for not abandoning my story.

Chapter 13: Betrayal

Bella's pov

When we all got done from hunting-well they did anyways, we headed home. Throughout the run, I could smell a strange but familiar scent, but couldn't exactly put my finger on it. I looked over at Edward to see that he was watching me. It was times like this that I wish I could read his mind.

When we got to our house, I noticed that everyone was gone. I looked around, my brows furrowed together when I smelt that familiar scent again. I didn't know what to think. I went to the kitchen to see if they left any kind of note; which I doubted, because they would have at least called one of us on are cell phones.

I went back into the living room and saw Edward and Blake having another stare down. I sighed.

"Can you to please stop doing that for at least a minute. Somethings wrong. Edward did your family say that they were going anywhere?"

He shook his head. " No they said they would be here when we got back."

"Blake, did Matt say anything to you?" I asked, hoping for the answer I was looking for.

"No they didn't say a thing." He said quietly.

Well, that certainly wasn't the answer I was looking for.

"Fine then, lets go," I said heading for the back door. I stopped when I heard Blake's voice.

"Go where?"

"Well since we all don't know where are family's are. We should go look for them." I said matter-of-fact.

"Oh, okay. I'll go with you." Blake said.

"Thanks that would b-"

"No, she'll go with me." Edward interrupted, I was a little confused because this wasn't how Edward would normally act..

"Okay..." I said slowly, looking over at Blake. He looked mad as hell. For why, I did not know.

"Fine." Blake replied in a growl. I looked at him worryingly. He usually never acted like this. But, ever since he got introduced into Edward he has become quite the snob.

Edward took my hand and we ran out the back door and into the yard. I stopped for a moment to left Blake get the head start. After all, he is the best tracker. I started following him, just like Edward was when all of a sudden I was pushed up against a tree.

I was shocked and tried to push the person away but I opened my eyes and saw Edward. I looked at him in confusion. "Edward, wha- "

I got cut off when Edwards lips smashed into mine in a rough but passionate kiss. This kiss was like nothing I have ever felt before.

I kissed him back, and he held me tight to his chest. I pulled my arms around hims neck and he put his arms around my waist. I didn't know how long we were like that, not that I even cared to know. Soon we heard someone clear their throats behind us and we broke apart and looked. It was Blake, and if looks could kill, Edward would be six feet under. Well, you know what I mean. The reason I said Edward was because Blake didn't even look at me.

Edward smirked at one of Blake's thoughts and I just looked back and fourth between the two.

I tugged on Edward's hand. "Come on," I whispered.

We took into a run and I caught that one scent again and stopped running. I would know that scent anywhere. How could I be so stupid to have not realized who it belonged to. Edward and Blake stopped running and looked at me.

"Bella, what's wrong?" Edward asked.

"I... I... I know who's sent that is." I said hoarsely.

"Who's?" Edward asked gently, taking my hand and running soothing circles on the back.

"I looked straight into his eyes. "Vincent." I said.

I saw his eyes tighten and his hand clench around mine. My head started to spin and I felt like I would pass out. Well it felt like it.

(lol I should be mean and stop here, but I wont. You guys have been waiting far too long.)

I looked around the clearing and once again, that stench was leading me right to him. I didn't want to go, but if I didn't... My family would probably be killed. What's worst is, what would we tell the school? (Sarcastic)

Okay well that was off topic, but still, I was glad that I had Edward with me. I knew what I had to do, and I would. Yes. If worst comes to worst, I'll leave with Vincent, just so Edward and his family can be at peace again.

I looked up into Edwards eyes and saw him glancing quickly back and fourth between the forest floor and my face. I put my hand over his cheek and leaned forward and rested my head on his chest. He pulled me in closer and I knew that I should just soak up the feeling I was having...And let him go.

(NO I WILL NOT BREAK THEM UP! They shall always be together... forever and ever... lol. When I said " let him go" I meant that she is going to let himself go so she can go with you know who. If worst comes to worst. God that was long, get back to the story... NOW! XD)

I stepped away from him and motioned for him to follow me. He did, of course, and then, we were off.

As I got closer to where Vincent stood. I noticed that my family members were there. As was Edwards. I tried to run a little faster but Edward had a death grip on my hand.

I tried to tug it out but it wouldn't budge. I sighed and gave up. I slowed to almost a stop before entering the little part in the forest and into what seemed like a football field that had millions of flowers and trees surrounding it. (WOW)

I could see in the distance that in the middle of that field, stood Vincent. I gently pulled my hand once more from Edwards grip and walked up to my family that was standing off to the side.

"Matt, what is the meaning of this?" I asked quietly.

"I'm sorry Bella, I really am, but you have to go with Vincent now. I made a promise to him and now I must keep it." Matt said also just and quietly as I had.

I looked at him in confusion. What did he mean by he had to keep his promise. And better yet. What promise?

AN: Sorry a little bit of a cliffie. I intend to get my next chapter up ASAP. I really am sorry I kept you all waiting so long. Please review.
