Isabella Swan sighed as she made her way to her best friend, Alice's, apartment.

It was her 18th birthday and of course the ever exuberant Alice had insisted on throwing her an extravagant birthday party.

Right on time, Bella walked into Alice's apartment and as expected about 100 people yelled out "SURPRISE". Alice came bounding forward.

"Happy birthday Bella," Alice exclaimed, hugging her.

"Thanks Alice," She replied.

"Come on," Alice said as she pulled Bella towards their close friends Rosalie and Emmett.

"Hey Bells! Happy birthday!" yelled Emmett, grinning.

"Thanks Em," Bella said, embarrassed.

"Here open your presents," Alice said, excitedly.

She handed Bella a square-shaped box wrapped in pink, which was from her and an envelope, which was from Emmett and Rosalie as they were going out. The box was a digital camera and the envelope had tickets to Florida, which was where Bella's mother lived.

"Oh my god. This is too much you guys," Bella said as she hugged them all.

The party was exceptionally planned and was really cool. Everyone seemed to be having a good time, but Bella, not being a party type of person, grew tired after a few hours.

After much begging and pleading, Alice relented and allowed Bella to leave.

"Call me as soon as you get home. Love you," she said and with a quick kiss on the cheek she went off with her boyfriend, Jasper.

Bella walked out of the apartment and down into the street. She walked as she fished through her purse for her phone to call a cab.

Bella thought she heard footsteps behind her, so she quickened her pace. The night was cold and deadly silent, not one person in sight. Bella immediately regretted leaving the party alone.

Bella was near an alleyway when suddenly the footsteps gained on her and a man placed an arm around her waist and a hand over her mouth. Bella screamed into the hand and thrashed around wildly. The man placed his mouth right over Bella's ear.

"Don't make a sound or you'll regret it. Just be good and I won't hurt you," a smooth velvety voice warned.

The threat caused Bella to struggle and scream even more.

"Stop," the voice starting to sound angry.

Just then a car pulled up in the alley way and 3 men came out. They assessed the sight in front of the before one of then said in a teasing tone,

"What's wrong Eddie? Can't handle an 18 year-old?"

With that he advanced on Bella, gave her a, what Bella thought was a look of sympathy before he pressed a spot on Bella's neck and knocked her out.

A/n: Well there you have it. Please review and tell me if it's worth continuing 'cause I'm not sure it is.
