Jacob had been gone for what seemed like an eternity

A/N: I've been planning this full fan fiction for awhile and I'm very excited about it. Please Read and Review and said around. I won't post the next chapter until I get at least 10 reviews. (I would like to have readers.) : This will probably all be Bella's POV and maybe Edward's.

The Dawn is Breaking

Chapter 1

How Can I Complain?

Jacob had been gone for what seemed like an eternity. I missed him so much, but he just couldn't let me do what I wanted with my life. He just couldn't accept it.

Maybe it was better this way. I loved Edward. Without him there was nothing. And Jacob would imprint. He would move on…without me. Even if we ever made peace again, I would never go near him so that the werewolf gene wouldn't be passed. As much as it would hurt, I couldn't do that to Jacob.

I just hope that someday, my Jacob will come back and be the wonderful person I still love. We just weren't meant to be, though. I'll always think of him as a brother, a best friend. Nothing more.

But Edward. There would never be anyone like him. We were getting married today. Today was the beginning of our eternity together. No more thoughts of Jake today. I guess most people would think I'm crazy to be thinking of another man on my wedding day. Maybe I am crazy. That's an accurate word for true love. Jumping off cliffs, facing dangerous vampires…that was crazy. And yet, I would do more for him. I was literally going to die so I could be with him forever.

"Bella, are you alright?" Alice's sweet voice, filled with concern, shook me from my thoughts.

"Yeah, just pre-wedding jitters," I laughed nervously.

"And wedding night jitters?" Alice said with a smirk.

I could feel myself blush and Alice burst into laughter, the sound of a million little bells.

"Bella, relax. Everything will be fine. Would you like me to check?"

"Could you?" I looked up at her anxiously.

Alice laughed again, putting down the curling iron that had been at my hair for nearly an hour, which I figured was a "yes".

After a moment she whispered to herself, "Hmmm…that's funny..."

"What is it Alice?" Her tone of voice made me feel uneasy.

"I can't see anything…"

I bit my lip nervously. Could it be because Jacob was here? I knew Edward had invited him, but I didn't think he would come.

"Don't worry, Bella. It's probably only because Seth and his mother are close by."

That would make sense. He was of the only werewolves who were supportive of my choice to be with a vampire. He was kind of like a family friend now. I nodded my head but my heart sunk a little. I had been hoping for Jacob. Why Bella? I cursed myself. I was in love with Edward. What did it matter if my best friend was mad at me and skipped my wedding? Oh, right…the "best friend" part.

"Ta-da!" Alice sang out. I looked up at myself in the mirror, my hair and make-up finally done. "You look almost as good as a vampire!" She said, giggling. I laughed too.

I did look amazing. My hair was slightly curled with some of it twisted halfway back with my veil pinned to it. My eyes were slightly dark and I had pale, glossy lips and some blush. Or maybe that was natural.

"Thank you, Alice." I said smiling, practically breathless.

"No problem." She said returning the smile, a smile which outshone mine. "Oh! I'm gonna love it when you're a vampire! You, Rosalie, and I are going to have so much fun being sisters!"

I smiled. Rosalie had been a lot nicer to me lately. She was making sure the final touches for the wedding were up and ready. And I was sure things were going to be even better when I was changed. I wasn't nervous about becoming a vampire at all, actually. Except for being bloodthirsty…

"Come on, Bella. Stop day dreaming! It's time to get your dress on!" Alice chirped. She helped me into it and I looked in the mirror, my eyes filling with tears.

"I'm getting married!" I shouted out.

"Wow, I certainly hope you're smarter as a vampire, Bella."

I turned as I heard Rosalie's sarcastic voice. "Ha, ha. Funny." I had to admit it was though and we all laughed like sisters.

"You do look extremely beautiful, Bella. Good job, Alice!" We laughed again. I was getting used to the sarcastic Rosalie and it was nicer than the cold Rosalie. I couldn't complain.

I couldn't complain about anything right now actually. My friends were coming to the wedding and my parents were actually happy for me. I was going to have a new, wonderful family with the Cullen's. And I was getting married to the most wonderful man in the world and I would get to spend eternity by his side. Who cared about that dog, Jacob Black?

"We'll leave you alone now if you want a few minutes to yourself, okay, Bella?" Alice said, interrupting my thoughts again.

"Okay. Thanks, girls." They disappeared from the room and I couldn't help but smile at myself in the mirror again.

Before I could react, I felt cold hands grip my arms from behind me and a voice at my ear that made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

"Hello, Isabella. You smell lovely."
