A/N: As promised, its a really short chapter, if you can even call it that. I'd just call it an epilogue. Just wrapping things up. Thanks so much for reading and make sure to read the author's note at the end for a surprise. : )
The group was gathered together watching the house burn to the ground. Esme had her hand over her mouth in disbelief, with Carlisle's arm wrapped lovingly around her waist, comforting her. Emmett was grinning from ear to ear, like he'd just heard some good joke. Alice stared, no she shot daggers at me with her eyes, as she tapped her foot against the ground. The force of her foot had permanently pressed down the blades of grass.
"Alice…" I put my hands out in defense. "I'm really….really….really sorry."
She didn't say anything. Emmett laughed again.
"You can go on a shopping spree. On me."
"I don't need your money Bella." At least that was a reaction.
"Okay, okay. I will….I will go with you, while you go on your shopping spree. You can even buy me clothes…and I will try them on with no complaints."
Alice crossed her arms. "No complaints?" She raised her eyebrow.
"Okay then you are completely forgiven." She finally smiled.
Emmett laughed again.
"What the hell are you laughing at Emmett?" I spun towards him and put my hands on my hips.
"I'm proud of you little sister. You kicked some vampire ass in there." He held up his hand for a high five. I laughed and slapped it.
I stepped towards Esme.
"Esme, I'm really sorry."
She leaned forward and hugged me.
"Don't you worry about it sweetheart. I'm just glad you're okay."
Jake and Maddie stepped out of the woods and I breathed a sigh of relief.
"Jake," I ran to him. "Thank goodness you're okay."
"Thanks for taking care of Maddie Bella. It means everything to me."
"Of course," I patted Maddie lightly on the back. "I would never let anything happen to this little girl."
I kissed Jake on the cheek and walked back to meet Edward.
He wrapped his arms around my waist as I reached up and kissed him,
"So what now?"
He laughed. "Rebuild the house. Start our new life. Start from scratch. No worries, no cares."
A/N: So that's it guys : ) Some reviewers have asked about Charlie...He's in the "group" thats standing there watching the fire. I didn't really want to close things out with a definite ending so I kind of left that open. I just didn't mention him among the group just like I didn't mention Jasper or Rosalie. I only pointed on the people who were doing significant actions at the time. Rest assured, they were there. I know some people have asked about a sequel and as of right now I don't have any plans to do one, just because I have some other ideas I want to try, but I'm not definitely ruling it out. So just to get you guys excited I've posted the play list for my next story in my profile…as well as a teaser below : ) so let me guys know what you think and keep an eye out for when I start posting chapters for it. It's called "Best Served Cold" and I hope you like it. Also side note it is a B/E story, so nobody freak. They'll be there. XOXO
"Best Served Cold"
I shook my head as I took a sip of coffee. I decided since I was over on this side of the office I should go to the bathroom. This was the nice part of being the only woman in the office; I pretty much had my own bathroom. I looked myself over in the mirror. My black pencil skirt was immaculately wrinkle free. I adjusted my shirt slightly. My mind wandered as I contemplated over the buttons at the top. They called me Agent Boobs anyway, why not work it to my advantage. I undid one button, and then another, making sure that my cleavage was peeping out the top. I pulled my hair down from the low bun it had been in to let if flow freely down my back. I shook it out one last time before exiting the bathroom.
The office had turned silent, which wasn't a usual occurrence. I stepped into the silence and right into the middle of Carlisle speaking. His eyes were full of strain and stress.
"…his body was found earlier this morning…"
My mind flew back to that day three months ago when he had uttered those same words to me. I remembered collapsing on the floor, screaming when anyone tried to touch me. I forced myself back to the present....
