This idea came to me randomly. I thought this was a sweet yet depressing concept
Set in Volterra right before Edward steps into the sun. ALL BPOV
Me and Alice were stuck at the toll box for the longest time. The guy wouldn't take Alice's bribe so that caused a bit of a delay. I
wanted to kill the guy. Alice even said "I'm in a hurry" I couldn't take it. Then after the longest time (around $2000.000) he came
around. That narrowed the time limit. Alice told me to run. I ran faster than I"ve ever ran in my entire life. But of course It wasn't fast
I didn't care that the wind was cutting my face and it hurt. I didn't care that I was a danger magnet. It was only Edward I cared for.
My existence meant NOTHING to me! I couldn't let Edward kill himself Especially when I was very much alive.
I didn't want to think about if I failed but the thoughts bombarded me.
What if I didn't make it? what if I was too late ? what if he still died? what if he doesn't want me?
I couldn't let my thoughts get the best of me.
I finally saw him. I almost lost my breath over the sight of him. He was still so beautiful. He was the most beautiful thing in this ancient
city. It was no hallucination this time I was sure.
Edward stood, motionless as a stature, just a few feet from the mouth of the alley. His eyes were closed, the rings underneath them deep purple, his arms relaxed at his sides. His expression was very peaceful, like he was dreaming of pleasant things.
I was interrupted by the clock he took a large stride toward the light.
"No! Edward, look at me!!" I screamed he wasn't looking at me. I slammed into him so hard I would've fell if he didn't catch me against his hard chest. He opened his eyes and looked quite amused about something.
"Amazing, Carlisle was right" He sounded surprised. There was no time for that. He was sparkling. "EDWARD! Get back into the shadows! Your sparkling"
I wasn't getting anywhere with this. He still thought that we were dead. "'Death that hath sucked the honey of thy breath, hath no power yet upon thy beauty' You smell exactly the same. Maybe this is hell. I don't care, I'll take it"
"YOUR…NOT….DEAD!! NEITHER AM I!! HURRY UP BEFORE THEY—"
Comprehension filled his eyes. He was about to run for it but someone grabbed him and pulled me and Edward into the alley.
"This was your last mistake, Cullen" A cloaked figure said. My voice gave out but the sound was still there. You head a muffled scream.
"your just lucky no one was paying any attention!" A different shadow said. They were both concealed in smoky gray cloaks that reached the ground. At that moment I knew what they were going to do. I felt the tears fall down my face. I forgot how to breathe. But at that moment, I didn't need to.
Edward eyes were filled with sadness, and remorse. And most distincivley love. He looked as , if he could cry, he would. I tried to move but I couldn't. He could sense my legs turn to jello.
He closed his eyes once more than looked at me. He strode to me and put my face to his . "Bella, I love you!!" He leaned down to kiss me. I didn't care about boundaries, I didn't care about two strangers watching us. I didn't care about anything. And the kiss ended as quickly as it started. I heard Edward scream in my mouth.
I opened my eyes and the first cloaked man had sunk his teeth into Edward. Edward's eyes were tortured. But he kept them opened. "Remember, Bella. I love you. Don't make the same mistake I did" It took me all I could to nod. I didn't know if I had the strength to lie to him. I started balling but in my tears I could see the life drain out of my beloved.
It looked like they were sucking the venom out of him. They stopped when he was pretty much nothing. I cried and held what was once my Edward. I couldn't even see him the tears blurred my vision.
"What did you two do? EDWARD?!" I recognized the piercing scream of Alice's voice. She was next to me. "Felix. W-why?" She said in dryless sobs.
"He wanted to die anyway. I just obeyed his wishes." He snickered.
I could see Alice get up. "This" she pointed to me. "Is the reason Edward wanted to kill himself. Perfectly alive." Both figures looked at each other with worried looks.
The second one broke the silence first. "We didn't know, Alice" Alice was motionless. "That's too damn bad" She hissed. Then she was back on the ground holding me; comforting me. It was nice but I had Edward's dead, lifeless body in my arms. I could not be comforted right now.
"What's all this?" A new voice said. "Demetri, why is Edward on the ground?" Silence despaired over everyone. I spoke for the first time since Edward died. I looked straight into the vampires eyes who spoke the question.
"HE's on the ground because he's DEAD. A-And they killed him" Then I started to sob once again. The third guest looked a little perplexed. He looked at Felix and Demetri. If I hadn't known any better I would've thought he was angry with them. But I wasn't too sure.
"Is this true?" Felix and Demetri nodded. Alice just glared at them. The third guest put his arm on Alice. "Alice..I am so sorry about what happened."
She took his hand off of her shoulder. "So am I." The man bit his lip. "You and Bella may stay as long as you—" He offered the kind invitation.
"Thanks but no thanks. Let's go, Bella" Alice picked me up and I dropped Edward. I think she ran to the car. I can't be too sure because I couldn't see past my tears. I couldn't believe he was gone.
