Alternate Ending


I climbed through Bella's window. It felt natural, like breathing. Bella was lying on her bed facing away from the window. I knew she heard me come in because I saw her shoulder twitch. She didn't turn though and I became worried. I sat on her bed and put my hand on her hip. I heard her trying to stifle a sob. Why was she crying? I was so happy to be back to us, but she was obviously upset. Wasn't she happy? What was wrong?

"What's wrong?" I pulled on her shoulder trying to get her to turn over. She rolled to her back and I could see her tear stained face. "Are you okay?"

"Edward, I'm trying to be okay, but whenever I'm alone my mind starts to wander." She sat up pulling her knees up to her chin. "All the things that have happened have left me feeling broken." A fresh set of tears rolled from the corners of her eyes. I slowly moved my hand brushing her hair out of her face. I cupped her cheek and kissed the tears from her eyes. My heart hurt.

"Bella, I promise to spend my life making it all up to you." I kissed her. Our lips parted and feeling her breath in my mouth mad me moan. I leaned into her wanting more. Bella place her hand on my chest, pushing me away.

"Edward, I have to know, did you sleep with….her?" she asked hanging her head.

I lifted her chin forcing her to look me in the eye. "No, not once," I said truthfully. Tanya and I had never had sex. Something that had pissed her off several times, but I just could never bring myself to be with her like that.

"Did you guys ever, you know, other stuff?"

I hesitated. Tanya and I had made out several times, and she had given me head a few. I looked away, but I couldn't lie to Bella. I nodded my head. A loud sob escaped her chest.

I looked at her head buried in her hands. I ran my hand down the back of her head and through her hair, trying to soothe her. I felt like a prick for asking, but there was something I needed to know too. Before the words could leave my lips I quickly changed the question "Why did James hit you?"

Bella lifted her head up looking at me with pain in her eyes. "Because I wouldn't sleep with him." I sighed. I hated what he had done, but so glad that we had only been with each other. I pressed my forehead against hers.

"I love you Bella."

"I love you too, but I think it's going to take some time for us to be better again. We hurt each other and that's not something that mends over night."

"I know, but there is nothing that could ever make me hurt you again. You are too important to me and I've learned that I can't be without you." I kissed her forehead. I made my way down the side of her face and to her lips. Again Bella pushed me away.

"Edward, tonight I need you to just hold me."

"I can do that. I would hold you forever if I thought I could get away with it." We lay down and I wrapped my arms around her. Her breathing slowed and I knew she was asleep. I lay there hoping that we would be able to move past this. Saturday and Sunday night we did the same thing. Me just holding her while we slept.


I slowly opened my eyes, trying to adjust to the light coming through my window. It was Monday, but from where the light was I knew I had missed the beginning of school. I felt Edward's arms around me. I rolled over and stared at his sleeping face. My mouth pulled into the biggest smile I had smiled in awhile. It felt so good. Edward stirred and opened one eye. "Good morning," he yawned. He closed his eye again and held me tighter to him. I could have laid there all day, but I heard a knock on the front door. The knocking grew louder and more persistent. I groaned and rolled out of bed.

"Don't go. I want you still in this bed when I get rid of whoever is at the door." Edward smiled. I quickly made my way downstairs and to the front door. I opened it and my jaw dropped in shock. Standing on my porch was Tanya.

"Where the fuck is he? I know he's here." She pushed her way past me into the house. I turned around to face her, leaving the door open.

"Who?" I played stupid.

"You know who the fuck I mean. Edward. He's not at home and after the fucking shit he pulled Friday I knew he would be here." Edward appeared at the top of the stairs.

"Leave Tanya. Nobody wants you here. I figured the last couple days would make you realize that." He said very peacefully. It was eerie how it sounded when he said it like that. Tanya scoffed.

"Don't tell me you're leaving me for this white trash, hoe bag, bitch." She turned towards me just as my fist swung out catching her in the jaw. She staggered back and I grabbed her hair. Her hands gripped my wrists trying to pull me off of her. I dragged her to the door and threw her down the steps. She landed on her knees.

"Stay the hell out of my house and away from me and Edward. Next time I won't be so nice." I slammed the door and locked it. Edward rushed down the stairs and wrapped his arms around me while I tried to control my breathing. We could hear Tanya outside yelling.

"This isn't the end of this. Nobody messes with me or my brother and just walks away unscathed. You both better watch your backs." It was quiet for a moment then we heard tires squeal as she drove away.

"Are you okay?" Edward asked brushing the hair out of my face.

I nodded my head, but I was shaking so hard. Edward grabbed my hand and pulled me to the stairs.

"Come on. I think you need to lay back down for awhile. You're shaking so bad."

"You'll stay right"

"Of course"

We lay down facing each other. Edward kept stroking my face and giving me little kisses, on my cheeks and forehead and jaw, but never my lips. I grabbed his chin in my hand and forced my lips on his. We kissed with are mouths slightly open. "Are you okay?" Edward asked against my lips. I answered him by kissing him harder. I had adrenaline running through me. I pushed Edward to his back and straddled him. I felt his hands move to my hips. I pulled his head away from my lips "Bella?"

"Please Edward I need this. I want this." I returned my mouth to his and his tongue slipped into my mouth. I moaned and my hips began to move in rhythm with our kisses. I pulled the t-shirt I was wearing over my head. Edward stopped kissing me and looked at my breasts. I giggled. Edward smiled and softly grabbed my left breast while kissing me again. He tied to roll me over, but we fell of the bed with me under him. We both started laughing. Edward cupped the side of my face. "I so love you."

I pushed my check into his hand. "I love you more than anything." He kissed me hard. I reached behind him and pulled his shirt over his head. I felt his large hands pull at the top of my shorts. I lifted my hip so he could pull them off. He then pulled his sweats off. I could see how hard he was and it made me want him even more. He kissed down my neck and across my collarbone. I grabbed his penis and guided it to my opening. I felt him plunge into me and it made me gasp. I placed one hand on his back and one against the wall. I pushed my hips into his side. Edward was breathing hard as he began to move faster and faster. I closed my eyes and couldn't stop the moans that kept slipping past my lips. It was kind of embarrassing. Edward's right hand moved up my side and landed on my neck. I opened my eyes and stared right into his as we both came at the same time. He pumped slowly in and out a couple more times then pulled out. He sat on his knees looking at me with a crooked smile on his face.

"What?" I asked.

"You just look hot covered in sweat and with that glow in your eyes. I'll definitely have to try again to put that look there. Probably several times of trying." I smiled and sat up. Edward gave me a small kiss. "I should probably get home. Charlie will probably be here soon and I really don't want to explain why I'm in your room."

"Yeah probably, but you'll come back over later right?" I didn't want to be away from him for nay period of time.

"Yeah. I can't stay away from my girl for too long."

Edward quickly got dressed and climbed back out my window. I watched him jog down the street then went to take a shower. After I was dressed there was a knock on the door. "That was quick." I said to myself. Guess Edward really couldn't stay away from me.

I hurried downstairs and flung the door open. The smile quickly left my lips. It wasn't Edward it was Jake.

"Is Edward here?"

"No he should be at home."

"Okay I was headed there next, just figured I would try here first."

"Why what's up" Jake paused like he wasn't sure if he should tell me. "Jake just spit it out"

"Well I guess since it has to do with you too. Tanya bailed James out. He's looking for you and Edward. He has a gun" I gasped bringing my hand to my mouth.

"I'll head over to Edward's house now and warn him."

"Jake can you drop me off at the cemetery then tell Edward to meet me there?"

"Is that safe?"

"Yes. James would never look for me there. He would be more likely to come here."

Jake nodded. He dropped me off at the cemetery then left to find Edward. I paced under our tree. I needed him in my arms so I knew he was alright.


I had come home and taken a quick shower then dressed into black jeans and white t-shirt. I was heading for the front door when there was a knock on it. It was Jake

"What's going on?" Jake never came to my house. This had to be important.

"James is out. He's looking for you and he has a gun."


"She already knows. She's waiting for you at the cemetery."

"Thanks Jake. I better hurry over there"

"Yeah man. Watch your back"

I quickly reached the cemetery. Bella was pacing under our tree. I ran to her and threw my arms around her. "Bella thank God you're okay" She began to cry into my shoulder. I looked up and coming towards us was James. He had a gun pointed at Bella's back. I quickly tuned us so my back was to him. I heard the gun fire and closed my eyes waiting for the impact. Nothing. I looked over my shoulder to see Jake standing near a stone statue behind where James had been. James was now on the ground blood pouring from his chest. Bella was Gasping. I helped her to sit on the ground. I pulled her face towards me making her look into my eyes "Bella breath. It's okay. You need to breathe."

She nodded, but she was still shaking. I looked over my shoulder at Jake who was squatting next to the body. "He's dead," he said looking at me. We could hear sirens in the distant. Jake stood and looked towards where they were coming from.

"Oh man Jake. I'm sorry you got mixed up in this."

"Hey man it's all good. I may not be the most upstanding citizen, but you don't hit girls and you definitely don't try to shoot my friends."

"Well get out of here. Give me the gun. I'll say I did it."

"No, this is on me. I can't let you take the fall for it. Besides it was self-defense."

"Yeah that's the way I saw it."

"Me too," Bella said. Her breathing had returned to normal. The three of us stood together waiting for the cops to arrive.


Five Years later

I stood looking in the mirror. I was covered from head to toe in an off white gown. A veil fell over my curled hair. Renee stood next to me smiling. A couple of years ago she had moved back to Forks. Her and Charlie were dating, but taking things slowly. Jasper and Alice were engaged. Emmett and Rosalie had broken up during college, but still remained friends. I tuned to look at my mom. "You ready?" she asked

"More than ready."

We made our way out of the room. Charlie was waiting there to escort me. Renee gave me a quick kiss on the cheek and went to take her seat. I looked up at the man whose arm I held. "I love you dad"

"I love you too Isabella," he said trying not to show how choked up he was. Someone began to play the piano and I made my way down the aisle to the arms of the man I loved.
