So this is my take on New Moon if Alice had have decided to not wait for Bella to jump but went back earlier. You know that she wouldn't have let things get as far out of hand as Bella and Edward did. Hope you enjoy and please leave me a review and let me know what you think.

Matters To Take Care Of
"I don't care Jazz." I huffed. "I know the difference between right and wrong just as much as he does and this is definitely wrong."
"Alice, we all agreed to respect Edward's decision." Jasper tried to calm me. I was amazed that he didn't use his special gift to achieve his goal but just his voice. Although in all fairness it really didn't take much more than just his presence to calm me better than any emotional manipulation ever could.
"I respected his wishes for two months now and look what has happened." I told him. "He up and runs out on all of us like we have the plague, Esme is crying almost every night or at least she would be if she could actually cry, you are more depressed than I have ever seen you and that is saying a lot, and I lost my best friend. Even Rosalie is upset. Although I think that has more to do with the new size of her room than with missing Bella or Edward."
Jasper came up and wrapped his arms around me and leaned his forehead against mine. "I know how much you loved Bella but this is not your choice to make. Edward decided we should leave and we all agreed. You know how guilty I feel for you loosing Bella but running back to Forks against his wishes isn't going to bring Edward back."
"The hell you say." I knew Jasper was starting to feel my anger but I didn't care. "When I get there and prove that he was a complete idiot for ever leaving her then he will have no choice but to come back."
"What if she has moved on as he wanted?"
"Are you on something?" I looked at him like he had lost his mind. "You felt their love. You have felt Edward the last month and a half that he was here. Do you really think you can just get over something like that in a matter of weeks? Is that how long it would take you to get over me if something happened and I was no longer with you?"
"Alice, now you're just being silly. Of course it would take longer than a few weeks to get over you." He kissed me. "I don't think I could ever get over you and I wouldn't want to but this isn't about us. It's about them."
"I know and trust me when I say that both of them will be happier for my interfering. I have a nack for knowing these things."
"Alice Cullen, have you been looking at Bella's future?"
I couldn't hide my face fast enough for Jasper not to pick up on the guilt that rose from inside me. "Just a little. Barely even enough to mention."
"Alice you promised." Jasper fell on the bed.
"Well, he promised to love her and that made me love her too." I pouted. "She was like my sister Jazz; you don't just turn your back on that."
"I know, I know but you still said that you wouldn't. What if Edward had saw?" He asked
"I'm not stupid." I rolled my eyes. "I only did it while he was hunting and then after he left."
"But how did you stop him from seeing what was in your head?
"I became fluent in ancient Egyptian." I smiled. "It is like the only language he doesn't know."
"You are the sneakiest vampire I know. I don't even think Rose has anything on you." He just shook his head. "Well, I guess since you've already looked…"
"So you agree that we need to go back?" I cut him off.
"I didn't say that, but I guess you do know more about what is happening there then the rest of us."
"Exactly!" I started hoping from foot to foot. "And I know that we are needed there."
"So what happens when Edward comes back and all of us are back in Forks?" Jazz asked.
"I am not talking about all of us heading back." When would he ever be on the same page as me? "I'm just talking about you and me."
"Alice, I really don't think that is a good idea." He closed his eyes.
"Have you forgotten two months ago? Bella's birthday party? Me trying to eat her instead of that ridiculously huge cake you bought?"
"Of course. What you think I'm the only vampire with amnesia?" Sometimes he could be so slow. It was a good think I loved him or else we might have way more problems. "But as you pointed out that was two months ago and Bella already said that she forgave you so I don't see what the problem is."
"And what if I can't control myself without Edward there to throw himself between us." He looked so sad.
"You can, I know it, remember." I said smiling and tapping my head. "Besides if worst comes to worst then I'll just throw you across the room."
"Thanks dear." He just shook his head at me again. "And if we do this then what are you going to tell the others?"
"You are just going to what? Saying you're going hunting and not come back for like weeks or maybe even months?" Jasper asked.
"Of course not. No one would believe that." I lightly punched him in the arm. "We are just going to leave tonight while everyone is busy."
"While everyone is busy?" Jasper looked as confused as a stray little puppy.
"You know….bbbuussyy." I said slowly hoping he would get the point.
"You mean while everyone else is…."
"That is exactly what I mean. Jazz it doesn't help to be the only two left in the house that can tell what is going to happen or what is happening and not take advantage of it." I told him. "Look it worked for Edward when he left and it will work for us too. Trust me by 2:15 am no one in this house will be noticing what we are doing." I smiled again.
"Somehow that seems so wrong. Taking advantage of a moment like that for you little plan." I closed his eyes. "Wait so does that mean we won't be busy?" His eyes shot open.
"Men." I rolled my eyes at him. "We have plenty of time to take care of that before everyone is distracted okay?"
"I guess but this still seems wrong somehow." He leaned over and rested his head on my shoulder.
"Just trust me." I said running my fingers through his hair.
"You know I do." Was all he said.
Was there any wonder why I loved him? Who else would trust me so completely with only my word that this was for the best. Certainly not my pig-headed, stubborn, always thinking the worst, overly protective brother. How many times did I tell him that this was the worst idea in the world? That our leaving wouldn't help Bella but did he listen to me? No. He just ran off and made up his mind and now look at the lengths that I am going to have to go to so that I can make this right. Dragging my poor Jasper back to the scene of his crime, leaving poor Esme with two less of her children, and that is not even counting what I am seeing with Bella. This is going to be the hardest thing I have done; putting this family back together but I know it will be worth it.
As we hung out with the rest of the family that night they could tell that something wasn't quite right. It was Jasper's doing really. He just can't act especially when he is nervous and sending out anxiety to everyone in the room. I swear Esme dusted the whole house three times, Carlisle re-read his class notes ten times, and Rose got up and looked in the mirror so many times she finally just took it off the wall and carried it with her to the couch. The only one that seemed un-affected by Jasper's mood was Emmett but that could be because he was watching a football game and with Emmett and sports it's always hard to tell if he is aggressive because of Jasper or just the game. If there was one career that he would be great at it would definitely be football. I swear if I saw him standing on the other team I wouldn't try to run past him.
The evening started to wind down around twelve with everyone heading off to their respective rooms. Jasper and I quickly ducked into our own room and started to pack. I was still unsure if I should leave a note or not. I didn't see Edward coming back before us but I did see him calling and I knew that if he heard what we were doing it was not going to be pretty. I finally decided that the less anyone knew the better, but I had to tell Esme something. I pulled out a lovely piece of stationary and began to write.
Jasper and I had a small errand to run that will probably take quite awhile. I don't want you to worry and we will check in as soon as possible. Trust us and know that we love you very much. It is because of all of you that we are doing this. We aren't off to find Edward. He made his bed and he is just going to have to sleep in it or at the very least stand by it all night. I know that this hurts you, especially you Esme, and I am so sorry for that but if we can succeed then maybe things can get back to the way they were and Edward will come home on his own. Take care and we love you all.
Alice and Jasper
I stuck it plainly to the mirror of my dressing table knowing that would be the first place Rosalie stopped and waited. It was almost time.
"Are you sure you want to do this?" Jasper asked coming up behind me.
"Absolutely." I told him. "We are the only two people that can do this. I know we can make this right or die trying."
"Die trying?" he asked with a scared look on his face.
"Not exactly die. I swear Jazz sometimes you take me so literal." It was my turn to shake my head at him. "You know I just mean that we won't go down without a fight and trust me it is going to be a fight."
"Is Bella doing that bad?" The guilt was back in his eyes.
"Yes she is, but I am more concerned with those around her." I told him. "It is going to be an uphill battle. Good thing you're use to battles right dear?" I smiled up at him.
"Very funny." He said dryly. "You know how much I hate talking about those days."
"I was just trying to distract you from the look in your eyes." I touched his hand.
"I can think of a better way to distract me." He leered at me.
"Always with the dirty mind aren't you?"
"At least I'm not as bad as Emmett?" He laughed.
"That is true. I don't know how Rose takes it."
"Would you like me to tell you?" He laughed harder this time. "Trust ME when I say you don't want to know."
I pushed him down on our bed. "Oh I do, I do." And with that we began our own distraction.
"Jazz, it's time." I pushed him off the bed.
"You couldn't have just said so without the animation?" His voice drifted from the floor.
"Well, who told you to fall?" I leapt off the bed myself heading toward the door.
"For the last time, are you sure?" Jasper's hand stopped mine as it reached for the doorknob.
"Absolutely. True this is going to be hard and a little dangerous, but mostly it is going to be so much fun." I reached up and kissed him on the cheek.
"Okay, I hope Bella and Edward know what's coming for them." He said bending down to grab our bags.
"Not yet, but they will soon and it is going to be great." I told him with a huge smile on my face.
He just leaned down and dropped a light kiss on my lips. "Hurricane Alice strikes again."
AN: Hope you like it. I might deviate from the NM story just a little in the next chapter but I think it will be lots of fun when Alice gets back.
Let me know what you're thinking. I always look forward to any reviews.
