Alice is one of my favourite characters in Twilight. I love her cheery personality, her hilarious love of shopping, and so much more. But I especially love her visions. Here is one vision which I thought I would NEVER want to see.
My scream rang out along the hallways, filling the house with its piercing sound, like fingers grating down a blackboard, the screech of brakes, calling a halt to time. My white face is full of horror and grief.
"No, Bella, no!"
I sit up in bed with a shudder, and Jasper puts a protective arm around my shoulders, rubbing my arm as I come out of my trance.
"What was it about?" Jasper asks, already realizing that I have had a vision. As my brow creases in confusion, he touches a finger to my face.
"Alice?" But I am already miles away, scanning the future again. It doesn't make any sense, why would I..
My sight cuts out as I am thrown head-first into another vision. The skies are a furious, dark, gray, thunderously whirling above in an ominous cloak. The wind shrieks as the waves crash feverishly against the cliff. Flash. Time moves forward by a second. I am on the cliff edge. Flash. A girl whose brown hair swirls around her, hiding her face. Who are you? I want to scream at her as my vision starts to pull away.
In the frantic few seconds remaining, I see empty, brown eyes. A pale heart-shaped face. A small smile touching her full lips. Bella. Flash. She jumps, screaming in fear, exhilaration and unadulterated relief. She soars like an avenging angel for a millisecond, and then plummets downwards in a death spiral towards the waves below. The waves consume her and she is pulled under.
Once again I am back in the present as my dormant heart twists in agony and I scream.
"No, Bella, no!"
I know already I am going to say these worst, but they feel as is they are torn from my throat. I heave dry sobs, no tears falling from my eyes as I lean my head against Jasper's shoulder.
"Alice, what happened to Bella?" I pause. How can I tell him that the girl who was once my best friend, like a sister to us, committed suicide?
"We shouldn't have left." My voice is shallow and dark.
"Tell me, Alice!" his voice is firm and edged with concern.
"Bella jumped off a cliff, okay? She was so miserable that she killed herself!" My outburst is met with Jasper's sharp intake of unnecessary breath, then a deathly silence. In the next room, I can hear that Esme and Carlisle are quiet. Luckily Emmett and Rosalie are out hunting.
"Maybe…"Jasper struggles to reassure me, "Maybe she isn't dead. Maybe she won't drown. Maybe…"
I hastily scan the future before he finishes, checking. Again the terrifying scene is replayed in my mind. I wait, and the roaring waves are the only sound I can hear. Then the future goes blank. Nothing. Even though I try, again and again, Bella's future has disappeared. She is dead. I am already too late to save her.
I relentlessly rerun the future in my mind. Nothing is different, and only my worst fears are confirmed; it is happening soon. Too soon.
My last thought as I crumple onto the bed is, Oh God, Edward. What have you done?
Please review! Even if criticism- because I get so many views and hardly any comments. Tell me what you think I should write from someone else's view( Edward in Volterra and Alice forseeing the big breakup are currently on the list) Just please say something. Even if it is just one word!
