A/N I am so sorry that it has taken so long to update. I have been really busy with school. I hope you enjoy this update. Thanks for all the great comments. Again sorry I am so late with an update.



I woke up in Alice's arms. "How did you sleep?" she asked me as I opened my eyes.

"Very well." I turned in her arms & sighed. "I love waking up next to you."

Alice smiled at me. "Bella, we need to talk."

Oh God. Those dreaded words. I took a deep breath and backed off the bed. "Did I do something wrong?" I asked backing towards the wall. I couldn't handle rejection. Not from Alice. I love Alice with all that I am.

She furrowed her eyebrows, and got up off the bed. "What are you talking about you silly human?"

I choked. "I don't want you to leave me." I could survive without her. I was sure about that. I'm not weak. I just didn't want to survive without her.

With in seconds she was in front of me. She wrapped her arms around me gently. "My silly Bella, I told you I wouldn't leave you. Why would you think I am leaving?"

I sighed with relief and moved into her, wrapping my own arms around her. "Alice, when most humans say we need to talk they mean they are breaking up."

Alice laughed. "Humans are so weird." She kissed my lips softly. "Now come sit on the bed," she said taking my hand & guiding me towards the bed.

I sat down and Alice knelt before me. She held on to my hands and looked up into my eyes. "Bella, my visions come to me when someone makes a decision to do something. It doesn't mean it will happen."

"Okay," I said clearly confused.

"I won't let this vision happen. I don't think he will even try now but if he does he won't succeed. I love you Bella. I will always protect you no matter what."

"I know that Alice. What are you talking about?"

"I had a vision of Edward attacking you. He is in lust with you and is convinced that he can make you want to be with him instead of me."

"I could only ever want you!" I declared.

"I know my Bella. I want you to know that I would kill Edward if he laid a hand on you."

"Don't say that Alice." How could she think that is what I wanted. "He is your brother. I don't want to wreck your family. I don't want to be the one to do that."

"If he attacked you…" she stood up and wrapped her arms around me, "then he would be the one wrecking my family. You are the woman I love. I can't let him hurt you even if he is my brother."

"Then change me Alice," I begged. "We can be together forever and he won't be able to hurt me."

She smiled and kissed my cheek. "I'll change you Bella. If it is what you truly want but not yet. I don't want to accidently kill you. Besides I want you to finish high school first. I want to be able to take you to prom."

I smiled. "You want to take me to prom?" She had successfully gotten me off the subject of changing me.

She laughed. "Of course Bella but that is some time a way. We still have a lot of other things to plan before then."

"Like what?"

"The school dance in a couple weeks. Mike is planning to ask you. I believe Eric is also."

"I don't want to go."

"At all?"

I shrugged. I really wasn't a good dancer but if Alice asked me I bet I'd go anyways but we wouldn't dance.

She laughed again. "Of course we will dance Bella. I'll teach you how."

I bit my lip. "Are you ready to come out to the school?"

She smiled. "If you are, then I am. We don't have to have a coming out, you know. We could just be ourselves and let them assume."

"Yea. I want to just be myself with you." I grinned. What did I care what the other students thought of us. I had my forever. I didn't need their approval. "That won't upset Edward more will it? He won't attack me because of it, will he?"

My beautiful Alice smiled at me, "I would never let it happen." She went into a trance. I knew this meant she was having a vision. When she came out of it her smile was even bigger. "It seems we don't have to worry. Edward is going to Alaska."

I kissed her. Our lips moved together. I pulled back & grinned. "I think everyone at school is going to know about us pretty quickly because I can't keep my hands off of you."
