A/N; ok, so I got a LOT of hate mail over the last chapter, so thought I should make an alternate ending as well. Sigh.

Jacob didn't take long. He grabbed my foot and dragged me out from under the bed without pausing. He kissed me gently, and I kissed him back, pretending he was Edward. But my illusions weren't that strong. When I kissed Edward, he was always so careful, and Jacob wasn't. I missed Edward. My heart actually hurt when I thought about him. I didn't know why his men hadn't come to get him yet, but I couldn't worry about that just now.

"You look lovely," Jacob finally said, pulling away. He sat on a chair, and I stood awkwardly, not sure where to go. He motioned me forward, and I ended up on his lap. I put my head on his shoulder while he played with my hair. It made me scared that he was so calm. This was when he was at his most dangerous.

"You have something to say," I croaked nervously. My throat was dry from lack of speech.

"You know me well," he said, avoiding the question. I waited, and so did he.

Eventually I got bored, "What is it?"

"Hmm? Oh no, it's just business," he muttered. I nodded and he stood up, dumping me on the floor. I picked myself up and brushed myself off. Jacob put his hands on my waist and he began again.


When the men had checked on me this morning they had laughed at me. They threw the bowl of bleak food down at me, and then said, "It's good she's so well behaved, or you'd be beaten to a pulp,"

"What are you talking about?"

"Without you, Jacob would have no leeway on her. She's as good as gold, and if not, all you got to do is threaten you, and she's an angel," they'd left then. That must have been about two hours ago. And I was still crying. I had to get out of here. With Bella. I couldn't imagine the pain I'd put her through. But I would try and make it better.

I'd eaten my food. I would need the strength. For the first time in days I stood up. My arm twinged when I moved it, so I tried to keep it as still as possible. I was surprised I could stand up. I didn't know how long I'd been in here, but it seemed like forever.

I tried walking, and I managed to stumble a few steps before collapsing. I gave up for the moment, and went back to thinking. I knew these men had taken my phone, and that's why no-one was coming after me.

I could hear people moving about upstairs. The squeak of a floorboard, the shuffle of footsteps. It seemed like they were mocking me. As if they were moving just to annoy me.

I tried to block out the sounds, and concentrated on an escape. I couldn't rely on my men. I had been known to take two month vacations, without someone I loved. So it could take forever. Anyway, I hadn't been the nicest person in the world, so they might not want to rescue me. But surely, surely the would want to save Bella.

I had to get out of here myself. And fast. Bella was in danger, and it was my job to protect her.


The assaults went on for a few weeks. I'd gotten into a routine. Wake up. Have Sex. Jacob leaves. Have shower and eat. Jacob comes back. Have sex. Eat. Have sex. Sleep. Wake up...

It wasn't right! I should be doing ballet! I tried asking Jacob about this, but he just laughed and told me he had better ways of burning off calories.

I shuddered when I remembered that. I was still reminiscing when Jacob came in.

"Bella," he said, "I have to tell you something," I watched him pacing.

"What is it?" I asked eventually.

"Bella, I love you," he said. I blinked.


"I love you. I am totally in love with you and I can't live without you, please say you love me too," I didn't say anything, "Say it!" he said, grabbing me by the shoulders and shaking me.

"I can't," I said, "I don't love you Jacob,"

He narrowed his eyes, "Take it back,"

"No, I don't love you, and I never will," he glared at me, and pulled out his phone.

"Bring him up," he said into it. I shuddered, "He is going to pay for what you said,"

We waited for five minutes, glaring at each other. Then there was a commotion in the corridor and Edward burst in the room.

"Bella!" he said.


"Bella!" I gasped out, staggering towards her. I got about three feet away from her when Jacob beat me to it. He brought out a gun.

I didn't pause or even look at him as I shot him through the head. His body jolted involuntary and he slithered to the floor. Bella froze, then ran into my arms.

"Bella," I murmured into her hair, "Bella, it's ok,"

"Edward! Are you ok," she held me at arm's length and inspected me. Her eyes swelled with tears as she saw my arm, "This is my fault,"

"No, it's mine, I should never have taken you," I said. I took a deep breath and said, "I'll let you have your old life back now. I'll disappear and you'll never hear from me,"

She blinked, "What are you talking about?"

"Bella, he raped you," I said, shocked.

"As long as I have you, we don't even need to talk about this. Edward, I love you, Ok?" I picked her up into a hug and swung her around. When Garrett and Liam got here, they apologised for not coming sooner.

"Its fine, we're alive," I said, patting Liam's shoulder. They took Jacob's body and went to dump it somewhere. I took Bella in my arms and carried her towards the car. She whimpered as I sat her down, and I think my heart broke.

"I'm fine, Edward," she said, stroking my face. I sat next to her and she put her head on my shoulder. I absentmindedly stroked her hair. It didn't feel quite real. After weeks of suffering, for us both, we should be brought together in the end.

She looked up and kissed me on the lips. I kissed her back without even thinking about it.

"I love you," she whispered.

"I love you, always,"

"Do you remember when you asked me when I got the tattoo?" I nodded, "I lied. I wasn't drunk," I peered at her, curious now, "I did it when my parents died,"

"Oh," was all I could manage.

"I've never told anyone that," she said. She shivered, and it was then I realised how little she was wearing. I took my bloody shirt off and wrapped it around her. She stroked my chest, and I closed my eyes. I had missed the feel of her so much.

"Bella," I said, "I promise. I swear on my life, that no-one will hurt you ever again,"

"I know," she said.


As Bella and Edward drove away in the car, Edward's men dumped Jacob's body in the canal. Then they returned to the hideout. They congratulated Bella and Edward when they told them they would be married. Soon.


It was my wedding day. I breathed in deep. I hadn't seen Edward all night and it made me nervous to be away from him for long. Alice, Jasper's wife, was putting the finishing touches to my outfit. I had my eyes closed, not wanting to see myself yet.

"Bella?" Charlie's voice made my eyes spring open.

"Charlie!" I said, hugging him. Alice muttered about keeping still, but I ignored her.

"Wow," Charlie said, looking at my dress. I blushed, and looked in the mirror. I did a double take. The dress was beautiful. Slinky and white underneath, with several layers of netting over the top. There was a single net sash around it too. It floated around my body gracefully. I looked beautiful.

"Bella!" Alice said sharply, "Don't cry, I've just finished your make-up!"

I got my tears under control and slipped on my shoes. Alice, my bridesmaid, nodded and went down the stairs before me. Charlie took my arm and led me down the stairs.

After the stairs, I scanned for Edward. There he was. And suddenly, Charlie was the only thing that stopped me sprinting down the aisle and jumping on him. I could see his eyes darkening with lust and I smiled and blushed. A grin spread across his face. He seemed to like my blush.

Charlie gave me to Edward with a kiss on the cheek. I was happy that we would finally be together forever.

A/N; Ok, are you happy now?
