FROM: Jasper Cullen TO: Edward Cullen 12:24 PM

Bombs planted in school. Herded humans into

cellar. Alice & others got away. I stayed behind.

FROM: Edward Cullen TO: Jasper Cullen 12:26 PM

Who planted bombs?

FROM: Jasper Cullen TO: Edward Cullen 12:27 PM

I smelled vamps, some humans.

FROM: Edward Cullen TO: Jasper Cullen 12:28 PM

Carlisle there?

FROM: Jasper Cullen TO: Edward Cullen 12:30 PM

No, but he might be coming.

FROM: Edward Cullen TO: Jasper Cullen 12:31 PM

Protect Bella- the girl that smelled so good. I'm coming home.

"No electronics, they could inadvertently set off one of the bombs," says one of the teachers to Jasper Cullen. I notice him slip the phone into his pocket. He is the only Cullen that had stayed. The others had fled with a handful of the students, and, of course, Edward had been gone since Monday.

I was enormously shaken. I had noticed someone running past the door, but paid them no attention until Mr. Banner checked his e-mail and announced that the school held explosives. He'd led us into a cellar next to the school. We couldn't escape because men and women were patrolling the area with guns. Upon finding a weak spot, most of the biology class had escaped.

Now I'm crowded in with about three-hundred other people, all wondering whether we would escape aliveā€¦or die within this cold, dark basement.
