A/n: I really didn't understand this part in the book, so maybe this is really not what Edward would do. Of course not! I changed it into what I WANTED him to do! Feel more upset, for gawd's sake!
-------------------ECLIPSE SPOILERS!!! IT'S BASED ON A CHAPTER FROM ECLIPSE-----------------
Edward's POV (Oh, and Monster is the chapter name where Jake does this, so that's why the title is no so attracting…)
Seth and I wandered back, giving Bella time to talk to Jacob. I hoped he didn't do anything rational, and hurt Bella. No, he wouldn't.
We weren't far from the campsite, but I couldn't spot Bella yet. Sam made a sound in disgust. I raised an eyebrow. His head turned away, the same sound ripping from his throat. He lay on his stomach, throwing his paws over his head. He started whining.
Mmm…she smells nice.
Flashes of what Jacob thought ran through my head. He had his hand around her neck, his other hand placing Bella's on his. She wouldn't move her hand, her fist balled up. Seth's whining in disgust interrupted the flashes.
She's warming up. I can feel it. She can do better, though.
My eyes narrowed. If Bella didn't want it, then why was he pushing her?
Suddenly, she grabbed his hair, pulling at it. Jacob brought his lips back to hers. She wasn't reacting. I had to stop him. I ran, still hearing Seth's nauseated whines. Once I reached the campsite, I froze.
She was kissing him back. Her fingers were tangled in his hair, pulling him closer. He was on her—kissing her everywhere. Jacob moved his lips to her neck, a smirk written upon his face.
"She asked me." He whispered. I could only stare. I hoped the pain in my eyes didn't show, as I watched Bella stiffen, and pull away. Jacob stopped for a moment, a triumphant look on his face. I never forgave myself for leaving her. I couldn't blame her. She loved him. And it was my fault. Though I didn't want to cause her pain, and I knew it was her fault, words just blurted out of my mouth.
"Carlisle must be right." I murmured. Bella watched me with broken eyes, her lips slightly parted. "Edward…" she whispered. Jacob tightened his grip on her, but she shot him a glare. He rolled his eyes and let her go. As soon as he did that, her knees began to shake.
"I guess there is heaven….and hell, for my kind." I pocketed my right hand, searching. Bella's eyes widened, as I brought out a small object. Jacob's eyebrows furrowed in confusion.
"So this must be hell." I whispered. Tears blurred Bella's vision. "Edward…I…" I closed my eyes, and shook my head. In an instant I was by Jacob's side. I forced open his paw, and placed the object in his hand. I close his fingers around it. Bella gasped, and struggled to open Jacob's fingers.
Jacob, clearly confused, opened to see the object himself. I took a step backward. Bella snatched the ring from Jacob's palm, and reached it out towards me. "What are you doing?! This is your mothers!" she started sobbing. "This is mine…" she murmured, her hand shaking for me to take the ring. I turned my head away.
"What's the use of it anymore? I'll always love you…in a way." I recited words I used before. Which I regretted, as she started to shake with sobs. "But, as I can see, it will be one-sided love." I was barely audible. Bella's gaze dropped to the ring. She lifted her left hand, and placed the ring on her third finger.
Jacob growled, reaching to grab her wrist. By that time, she was already wrapping her arms around my neck. "Keeping fighting. Please. I love you more." She whispered. Jacob rolled his eyes, and his mouth formed into a line. "Well, I have to go fight. See you later, Bells."
Bella turned her head, watching him sprint off. She let go of me, not meeting my gaze. "Please. Don't go. Do anything you want, but don't go. Call me the worst names you can think of, and tell me you are disgusted. I'll beg on my knees right now. Please. Don't leave."
"I can't do that." I murmured. I couldn't even leave her, like I said I would. I didn't want to cause her pain, again. I wasn't going to fight with the newborns because she didn't want me to leave. I was a horrible person. I was going back on my word. I wrapped my arms around her, burying my face in her hair. She shivered, and I pulled back gently. She looked up at me, her eyes stained with tears.
I smiled back, brushing her yet-to-fallen tears. "You're only human, Bella." She laid her head against my chest, despite my cold temperature. "Stupid excuse." She mumbled. I chuckled lightly, stroking her hair. She shivered again, and I abruptly pulled back. I shook my head as she reached for me again. "Later." I whispered.
She nodded slowly, looking down. She wasn't going to forgive herself. Neither was I. I lifted her chin up. "Don't blame yourself." "Same goes for yourself." She gazed deeply into my eyes. I didn't want to make her upset, so I nodded. Of course, it was still all my fault. My only wish was that she didn't have to be torn between Jacob and me.
I promised myself, I would never make her choose. I would give myself up for Jacob if that's what she would have wanted. I looked down. She attempted to smile, though it clearly showed she was hating herself, still. No… No matter what she just did. Kiss him or not, she loved me more.
And to my distaste, I couldn't help but feel slightly arrogant. I was willing to fight back.
A/n: I have no clue if any of this made sense. Especially the last sentence. I was kinda/really confused with the whole deal after Bella kissed Jake. What was Edward feeling? Well, I (think) saw that he took it very well. Which in my opinion, he shouldn't have!
