Imagine if Edward or any of the Cullen's came back and Bella choose Jacob. This takes place right before where they would have seen Carlisle's car. The beginning is from New Moon by Stephenie Meyer. It is there just to catch up on the scene. Indicated by ** I do not own any material inbetween.

**Jake pressed his warm cheek against the top of my hair.

If I turned my face to the side-if I pressed my lips against his bare shoulder…I knew without any doubt what would follow. It would be easy. There would be no need for explanations tonight.

But could I do it? Could I betray my absent heart to save my pathetic life?

Butterflies assaulted my stomach as I thought about turning my head.

And then, as if I was in immediate danger, Edward's velvet voice whispered in my ear.

"Be happy," he told me.

I froze.

Jacob felt me stiffen and released me automatically, reaching for the door.

Wait I wanted to say. Just a minute. But I was still locked in place, listening to the echo of Edward's voice in my head.

Storm-cooled air blew though the cab. **

The involuntary shiver released me from my trance.

"Let's get you inside," Jacob's voice whispered in my ear.

Instead of going out the passenger door, I started to follow him out the driver's side.

"Wait," I whispered. He turned around with a thoughtful look on his face, as I stayed perched on the step of the truck. I reached slowly for his hand. Realizing what was happing, he stepped closer toward the truck interweaving our fingers and bringing them up to kiss the back of my hand. I leaned in and cautiously placed my lips on his. The kiss was different. Hot. His hands slipped down to my waist as mine moved to his neck.

Everything else melted away. I realize that this is what I wanted. This is what I needed. Edward was never coming back and Jacob truly made me happy. There was nothing stopping us from being together. It would make everyone happy, including me.

The hole was being stitched up inside me as we pulled away. I blushed deeply.

He chuckled softly. "That was unexpected, but I liked it."

I giggled. "Charlie will be home soon. I should get dinner started."

"Oh, Ok."

"That doesn't mean you have to leave." I hopped down from the step and started leading him toward the door.

"Hey, do you want to go out sometime?"

"Sure Jake. I would love to." He grinned down at me.
