Not sure if this one is as good as the others, but I hope it is, because I really love Emmett, he's just really awesome, so I hope I did him justice. :D I apologize I've been taking so long to update, it's been rough these past couple of weeks. :D And I apologize also, because I said I was doing Esme's POV next, and I did Emmett's. I hope you guys like this though, and please review at the end, because I can't decide if I should continue on with the rest of the characters for this scene, or move on past it. So, please review, and I hope you like it! :D
Alice was gone.
My sister was gone.
And she wasn't coming back.
I stood, in shock, not accepting what was going on around me.
Rosie, God how I loved my wife, she came to stand by me.
Her hair was dark from the rain, the tears glistened on her pearly skin.
She looked up at me.
"Emmett, make her come back to us,"
That was what her eyes said.
Because, to her, I was some kind of superhero.
I could make the world alright again.
But this time, I couldn't.
No matter how hard I tried, Alice wasn't coming back.
Jasper tore the offender apart, piece by piece.
He had no idea what was going on.
It hadn't sunk in yet.
Kill, kill, kill…
That was what his eyes said.
His hair was dark from the rain, too.
It fell over his black, black eyes, and the moisture dripped down his face, like silent tears.
We'll never be the same, without you.
I miss you sister.
And I will miss Jasper.
Because I know he is soon to follow.
He can't live without you.
He just can't, Alice.
Somewhere inside of me, I'm angry with you Alice.
For leaving us.
Because we need you, Alice.
And I'm so angry, and I'm angry that I'm angry.
I don't even make sense anymore.
Rosie clings to my wet t-shirt, sobbing, trying not to drown.
In her grief.
And I have to help her, I have to save her.
But right now Alice, I have to save myself.
And somewhere deep inside of me, I'm almost… happy.
Happy that I know that there is somewhere bigger and better for us out there.
Because that's where you are, Alice.
You wouldn't have been able to leave unless there was somewhere better.
You only deserve the best, sister.
You are an angel.
We love you Alice.
I love you Alice.
I miss you.
And I hope that, wherever you are, you aren't too upset with us.
Because we didn't save you.
You aren't with Jasper anymore.
But you will be soon.
He can't live without you.
And I hope you aren't too sad for us, because we deserve it.
We deserve it so damn much.
Because we didn't save you.
And now I'm angry again.
Because I'm your friend.
I was supposed to be there for you, always.
But I wasn't.
I couldn't save you this time.
I let you down, Alice.
And right now, I hate myself.
I hate myself for doing that to you, and Jasper, and all the rest of them.
I wasn't good enough this time.
I wasn't strong enough.
I wasn't brave enough.
I wasn't fast enough.
I wasn't paying enough attention.
I just wasn't enough.
I don't think I am a superhero, after all.
I'm so, so very sorry Alice.
I hope you know we love you, we all do.
We always do, always did, always will.
We won't forget you, Alice.
Are you afraid Alice?
Are you afraid we'll forget you?
We'll never forget you, Alice.
We'll always miss you.
I'll never be the same again.
Rosalie, she lost her first sister.
She needs you too, Alice.
She needs someone to be honest with her, to tell her when she's being cruel, and to comfort her when the pain is too much.
We need you, Alice.
I choke out a sob, shuddering violently before again regaining my composure.
I am back.
I grab hold of Rosalie.
She is shaking.
Even though she's not cold.
My poor brother.
He punches the ground.
He screams up into the sky, but I can't hear it.
I can't hear anything.
Except the rain, falling on the ground.
And the wind, it whispers to me, mocking me.
I hold tighter to Rosie.
I have to save her.
I will never let her go.
The thunder booms, the lightning cackles overhead.
I hear nothing.
I squeeze my eyes shut.
This isn't real.
It isn't real.
This is just a nightmare.
Because, if I accept that this is real life, I accept Alice is really gone.
And I can't do that.
I just can't.
Rosalie shakes in my chest.
She's gone through so much.
So much pain…
I feel like she could break at any moment.
I feel like I'm losing control of everything.
Everything used to be so… perfect.
It was all so perfect.
Almost too good to be true.
I cursed at myself.
Because I didn't realize how good I had had it.
I was spoiled.
I let it slip away…
I wanted those times back again.
I wanted them so damn much it hurt.
I couldn't move.
I didn't breathe.
I began to shake, clutching Rosalie even closer.
Because, I realized, I could lose her too.
At any time, when I least expected it, when I wasn't there, when I wasn't ready.
I couldn't let that happen.
I had to protect her.
I had to be her superman again.
I needed that.
To be in control again.
Jasper sobbed, still pounding the ground.
His mouth formed the name of his beloved, but no sound came out of his mouth.
He was in so much pain…
So much pain.
He dug his fingers into the grounds, the hard terrain swiftly turning into fine sand.
Jasper… stay strong my brother.
I tried to be comforting to him.
He must be feeling so much.
His emotions and our whole family's.
How much longer would we make him suffer?
My question was answered…
"Kill me, please, someone just kill me!" he screamed, choking out the words.
The thunder was deafeningly.
The world was coming back.
Reality had returned.
He put his hand to his neck.
He was going to do something himself if we didn't act.
Alice… help him, please.
Carlisle's voice was pained.
He knew now what he had to do.
But that didn't mean he resented what he would do next with his entire being.
Edward and I stepped solemnly forward.
Edward was barely holding himself together.
I had to stay strong for my big brothers.
I had to stay strong for them.
Edward and I helped to restrain Jasper.
He… he barely had the strength to struggle against our grips.
He cried out again.
My resolve faltered.
It was my duty.
I was… the rock of the family.
Someone they could always depend on to "lighten the mood" and make the stupid, aggressive mistakes.
It was who I was to them.
But that wasn't all of me.
Because, I felt pain too.
When I met my singers, I had killed them both.
I didn't have the same strength as Edward.
I didn't have the experiences that Jasper had.
I didn't have the carefree, absolutely blinding beauty of my sister passed.
I did not have the emotional strength of my own wife; I was weak in my own eyes.
I did not have the compassion of Carlisle.
I did not have the love Esme had.
And so, I needed to be a constant.
I needed to always be there, for all of them.
But secretly, I felt pain, as much as they did.
I missed my home state of Tennessee.
I missed my human family, at times, no matter how large and obnoxious it actually was.
I resented myself for not being able to give my Rose what she truly wanted.
I hated myself for not being good enough for her.
And now, I learned, I was not even constant enough to save my own sister from a damn newborn.
I was despicable.
I was not worthy to exist.
But I had to.
My family had already suffered so much pain.
I didn't think they could take anymore of it.
And so, I would do my best to go back to being a constant.
Because that was how they needed me.
And so that was how I would be, until my own existence was ended.
Carlisle stepped forward.
He was really doing this.
He was going to kill Jasper.
Hang on a little longer, Alice.
I wonder, if you're upset with us or not.
Do you want to be with Jasper, or do you want him to stay here, with us?
I guess we'll just have to trust our guts.
He coming Alice, and you better be ready for him.
'Cause he's going to need some patching up after all this.
He's really broken now, Alice.
But I trust you'll be able to fix him up just fine.
Just like you've done, so many times in the eternity you lived here on Earth.
And I know how much he was always so truly grateful for that.
He lived for you, Alice.
And now he's dying for you.
I hope you don't forget us, Alice.
Because we really do love you.
And we love Jasper.
Our existences were changed the day you two came dancing through our front door.
Just know… that we love you.
Always have, always will.
Sometimes, when my heart is bursting like this, I feel like all my feeling can't be conveyed with that little four little word.
Like it isn't enough for all that I'm feeling.
But for now, you'll just have to trust me.
And I'm happy, Alice.
I'm happy you're whole again.
Sooo... I really hope you liked it... and please review! :D
