A/N: This is a short chapter today, sorry guys. But its just the way it has to be. :(


Rosalie's mind did a complete 360.

It had been filled with hatred toward my Bella. Hatred and anger.

Now it was…………praising. It was like she looked at Bella like a……..

A god.

I glanced away from Rosalie towards Bella.

Her face was almost……apologetic.

Then I saw why.

She was looking at Esme's pained face, reading her thought. Esme was disappointed.

Because Esme saw exactly what was going to happen. Rosalie would beg to be changed, and Emmett would follow.

She would lose two of her family.

"Esme..........." Bella whispered. "I'm so sorry. I…….."

Carlisle interrupted then; he knew what we were talking about. He saw it in Esme's face too.

"It's not your fault, Bella. You were merely explaining to us. Rosalie and Emmett are free to make their own choices. If they decide to, that will be what they decide, not what you made happen."

Bella nodded.

I pulled her to my chest and she laid her ear against where my heart should be.

"I'm ruining everything. I'm ruining your family." She said quietly, though I'm sure she knew everyone heard her.

"Shh, shh. You're not ruining anything, love. You make my day just by being here."

She smiled a weak smile up at me.

Then I heard the voice I was waiting to hear.


"Bella……..Bella…." Her voice had a strange ring to it, like it was a little hoarse. That was a first. "Please. Please. I'm begging you with all my heart. My life. My soul. With everything I have. Just……please."

"Rosalie……I…I don't know if I can."

"Bella, please. Please. You can have all my clothes, all my jewelry, my money and everything. Just please."

"No, Rosalie, its not that you aren't giving me enough. It's just that, I don't think you would want to."

"Why? Why not Bella? You don't know how bad I want this."

"No, Rosalie, I know exactly how bad you want to be human. But that's why I have to say no."

Rosalie's anger was building again, slowly but strongly. It was the first time Bella actually told Rosalie no.

"What?" Rosalie snapped, eyes glowering, right at Bella.

A/N: Sorry, I told you it was short, but next chapter is really long. But there wasn't really another good place to stop it at.

Review and make me smile!!!
