A/N: No one got Alice's song right, so no dedication this chapter, but nice guesses everyone! I'm going to do the singer's point of view in each of the chapters, so it will vary each chapter. First up is Alice! I recommend you listen to the song of each chapter, and this chapter is At the Beginning by Donna Lewis and Richard Marx. Enjoy!

Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight or the song At the Beginning.


Last time:

Alice searched through the box of karaoke CDs she bought just for tonight and finally found the one she was looking for. She popped it into the expensive looking stereo and settled herself on the stage while the opening notes of the piano came through the speakers.

Alice POV:

I listened to the first few bars of the song played, a simple piano melody. The song was fairly upbeat, but not as bouncy as people expected. It completely represented Jasper and I's relationship, every word I knew would speak straight to his heart just as I planned.

We were strangers
Starting out on a journey
Never dreaming
What we'd have to go through
Now here we are
And I'm suddenly standing
At the beginning with you

Before we met, I knew he was coming to find me, but I still knew nothing about Jasper, not even his name. Neither did I expect for us to fall in love and be together for our entire existence like what was happening. I sang the words, using every emotion I had bottled up inside of me and oozed them into the lyrics so Jasper knew everything about how I felt.


No one told me
I was going to find you
Unexpected
What you did to my heart
When I lost hope
You were there to remind me
This is the start

It was true that I was surprised on what has happened to us. I thought maybe we would travel together and go our separate ways soon enough, but my visions intrigued me, so I waited for him. Now the thoughts I had back so long ago seem foolish and naïve compared to the expanse of my emotions I felt as I made my way to the chorus.

Life is a road
And I want to keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

All the beautiful similes that this song contained represented my feelings for Jasper, and I knew he returned my every thought. I knew now, and I suppose I always knew, whether I realized it or not, that Jasper and I would be together for all of eternity, and that neither of us would ever be able to survive without the other; that much was completely true.


I'll be there
When the world stops turning
I'll be there
When the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

I knew Jasper would always stand by my side and never leave, no matter what I did or how I acted, and I needed to reassure him that I would never abandon him. I knew that he feels awful about his blood lust issues, but he needs to be reminded of my loyalty, even though I have told him many times, and that no matter what happens, we will always remain together.


We were strangers
On a crazy adventure
Never dreaming
How our dreams would come true
Now here we stand
Unafraid of the future
At the beginning with you

I had an inkling when we met that we would stay together, romantically or as friends, but we never would be able to leave the other. His was, and would always be, my dream, and my only dream. We never have to be afraid of the future, not only because I would always see any troubles, but because we would be there to even each other out, keep each other in check, and be with each other to love the other while giving the support only a soul mate can provide.


Life is a road
And I want to keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

At this point, I removed my gaze from the woods where I had been staring, to my love's eyes. If Jasper was able to be in tears, I knew that a river would be flowing from his eyes. The pure love and devotion that his eyes conveyed in that single moment was enough to reassure me forever that he loved me.


I'll be there
When the world stops turning
I'll be there
When the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

As I continued with the chorus, my lips turned up into a slight smile as I sang, re-fixing my eyes on Jasper. He revealed a heart-breaking smile that would have stopped my heart had it been beating. I could tell from that smile that he was getting every silent message I was sending him in my mind.


I knew there was somebody somewhere
Like me alone in the dark
Now I know my dream will live on
I've been waiting so long
Nothing's gonna tear us apart

I had known from my vision of our first meeting, that we would get along and that we would mesh perfectly, but I couldn't think of that once I saw him in the flesh. Watching him walk through the door made me a bundle of nerves and after we exchanged our first words, I knew we would be forever. My dream truly lives on.

Life is a road
And I want to keep going
Love is a river
I wanna keep flowing
Life is a road
Now and forever
Wonderful journey

I'll be there
When the world stops turning
I'll be there
When the storm is through
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you

Life is a road and I wanna keep going
Love is a river I wanna keep going on...
Starting out on a journey
Life is a road and I wanna going
Love is river I wanna keep flowing
In the end I wanna be standing
At the beginning with you.

I finished the song, thinking strictly of Jasper and all the moments of our past. Before the last piano notes could finish, I took off from the stage and jumped into my love's waiting arms and buried my face into his chest.

"I love you, forever," he breathed into my ear, kissing my hair.

"I know. I love you for eternity, Jasper," I whispered into the soft cloth of his shirt, kissing his chest.

He held me in his arms for what seemed like hours but I knew it to be only seconds. I was so wrapped up in our moment earlier that I didn't realize until now that I had gotten a standing ovation from the people around me.

I turned so my back was facing Jasper's chest and mumbled, "Thank you." The applause continued for a few moments and every seated themselves once more, but I remained standing.

I knew I had to choose someone to sing after me so I gazed around the seated. My gaze lingered on Bella's crying face, touched that she loved my song. I let my eyes to a last sweep of the room before announcing the next singer.


So what did you think of the first song? Was it what you expected, or completely off? Let me know by pressing that shiny little review button! You can vote on a poll on who you think Alice will chose. You can also send me some song guesses for any of the characters in the story, and if you get it right I'll dedicate the chapter they sing in to you! Good luck everyone and please review!
