I am going to try my hands at a human Twilight story. This will be pretty graphic...Bella is kidnapped, and Edward is her best friend, and may be her only hope...


Chapter One: Taken

Edward PoV

Ah, Bella. Bella, Bella, Bella. My best friend. My companion. My everything. And I knew I was in love with her. Knew it. I jus-

"Edward? Is there something wrong? You look confused," she said, snapping me out of my thoughts.

"It's nothing."

"It didn't look like nothing," she teased, nudging me with her elbow. An electric shock ran through my system.

"Er...What?" Real smooth, Edward.

She stopped on the sidewalk we were walking on, and turned to face me. "Edward Anthony Cullen, I know that you were thinking about something! I wasn't born yesterday! I've known you since we were two for Christ's sake! What were you thinking about?"

"I swear, it's nothing," I said as a white van came around the corner and slowed down, as if it were looking for a house number.

"Fine. I won't pry. But trust me, I will find out," Bella promised, and started to walk again.

We had known each other since we were two, and we were now eighteen. Sixteen years. Wow.

"Bella, wait! Come back here! Ugh, come here!" I said, running after her. "I will tell you over a game of Truth Go Fish. Only. How 'bout it? You can stay the night."

She smiled. "Sounds nice. You really do need to learn how to play poker though. You are eighteen, and don't know how to play poker. Oh, the horror!"

The Cullen household

"Hey, Alice. Hey, Jasper, Emmett, Rosalie," I said as Bella and I walked into the house. Emmett was Bella's older brother. He was twenty-two. Alice, Jasper, and Rosalie were twenty-two also. And Jasper and Rosalie were twins.

"Hey, little bro!" Alice called.

"Hey," the rest of them called.

"Yo, Brother Bear! Show Eddie some respect!" Bella said. She was the only one who could call me Eddie and get away with it.

"Sorry, Squirt!" Emmett called back.

We took off upstairs.

"So, Eddie, ready to tell me what you were thinking?" Bella said, throwing her bag on my couch, and flinging herself onto my king size bed.

"Not a chance," I replied, climbing on, holding the cards.

"You deal. And no cheating!"

"I don't cheat."


I dealt the cards. Dammit. No matches.

"Dammit. No matches," Bella said.

"Ladies first," I said.

"You got any sixes?"

"Nope," I replied.

She drew a card. "Damn."

I smiled. "Do you have a five?"

"How do you do that?" she asked, handing me the card.

"I'm just good at knowing things..."

"Eh. Just ask," she demanded, obviously mad that she didn't get to ask.

"Bella, Bella, Bella...Hmmm...What to ask, what to ask, what to ask?" I pondered, making her angrier.

"Just ask the damn question already, Edward!" she fumed.

"Fine, don't be so pushy. Do you have a crush on anyone?" I asked, fearing the answer.

She turned fire engine red. "Yes," she whispered so low that I wasn't even sure she said it.

"Do you have any twos?"

"Darn. You got me."

"Yes! Woohooo oooh hooo hooo!" she said, dancing on the bed.

"Sit down and ask already," I said, dreading the question.

"Do you have a crush on someone?" she asked, surprising me. I thought she would ask what I had been thinking about.

I know I was slowly truning pink. "Yes...," I mumbled.

She looked worried. I wonder why...

"BELLA! I'M LEAVING! ARE YOU STAYING THE NIGHT?" Emmett bellowed up the stairs.

"YEA! I"M STAYING!" she shouted back.

"WHO'S ROOM?!" Emmett demanded.



"OH MY GOD, EMMETT!" I heard a girl yell, and then there was a big boom as something hard no doubt met the back of Emmett's head.



I looked at Bella. She was bright red again. I scooted over to her. "Don't listen to them. They're just a bunch of morons, anyway," I said, putting my arm around her shoulder.

"Yea, big morons at that!" she said back.

"DINNER IS READY EDDIE-KINS!" My sister cheerfully shouted.

"COMING DEAR!" I shouted back.

Bella looked at me, one perfect eyebrow cocked. "Dear? Since when were you two a couple?"

"Oh, I forgot that you've never heard us do that. We started doing that when we were little."

"Oh. Help me off this giant thing."

I stood up, and Bella fell face forward, pitching off the bed.


I caught her around the waist, and I noticed she turned slightly pink.

"God, Edward, don't kill the girl," Alice said, standing in my doorway. "Oh. Knock knock!"

"We're coming, Alice, my balance issues just stalled us," Bella said, walking towards the door.

I followed, tailed by Alice, in case Bella fell again, which was very likely.


Bella PoV

"Edward! No!" I screamed, as he was attacked by a giant, russet wolf.

"Bella! Run!" he shouted back. "Get away from here!"

"No, Edward! I can't leave you!"

"Bella, go awa-" his words were cut off by a big snapping. The wolf bit him in half.

I shot up, screaming, tears running down my face, and clung onto Edward's leather couch for dear life. "Edward! Edward, no!" I screamed, gasping for breath.

"Bella!" Edward was by my side in an instant. He got on the couch and pulled me up against his bare chest. This was the first time this had happened since I was fifteen. "Shh...It was just a dream..."

"But-you-and the wolf-and he broke you-and he-and I-and-and," I burst into a wave of sobs, my tears dripping onto his chest.

"Shh...Calm down...I'm okay, see?" Edward said, tilting my face up to his.

"Mmhmm. The wolf-it-it killed you. You had left me forever, and it was unbearable. Maybe only a dream, but the pain was still there. Don't you ever leave me. Ever," I said, looking onto his deep green eyes.

He brushed some of my hair back. "Never." Then he kissed my forehead. "Do you want to sleep in my bed, or would that be too uncomfterable? The last time we were in the same bed for sleeping we were twelve."

"No, it's fine."

"Come on. Let's get you some sleep," he said, and then se got into the bed, and i snuggled up against his chest.

"'Night, Edward."

"Goodnight, Bella."

On the way home from school

Edward PoV

As we came onto the street we were on yesterday, the white van came back. I didn't like it.

"Bella, come on. I don't li-"

A loud squeal came from behind us. Two men jumped out from inside the van, wearing ski masks, and grabbed Bella.

"Edward! Hel-"

They covered her nose and mouth with a black cloth. Chloroform must have been on it. Bella went limp.

"Let her go!" I screamed, trying to find something to hit them with. One other man came out from behind me and hit me on the head with a blunt object. Bella was thrown into the van, her dress coming up above her waist. She was completely exposed. The other guy jumped into the van and they took off. I got a good look at the license plate.


The wors had just happened. Bella had been kidnapped. Right in front of my emerald eyes.
