#1: What if she didn't stop at 17

"She has so little time left," a devastated Bella whispered to Edward.

He nodded. They rarely spoke anymore of Renesmee's rapid aging. It seemed pointless to discuss the problem when there was no solution.

Carlisle predicted Renesmee would live fewer than twenty years and she was already halfway through.

They heard Renesmee laugh as she ran through the woods with Jacob. She was always running; it was as though she wanted life to speed up even further.

Meanwhile her parents would have given anything to slow it down.

For Edward and Bella, who had eternity, the irony was unbearable.

A/N: Well, these are obviously my entries for round three of the Twilight Twenty-Five challenge. These are also my first-ever drabbles. Turns out they're kinda fun to write. Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading them half as much as I enjoyed writing them.

Though all are unrelated to each other, most are sort of cannon "with a twist," asking what happens when one small detail is changed, often with very different results than Stephenie Meyer planned. And speaking of Stephenie Meyer, she owns everything you recognize.

Thanks so much to Mrs. Agget for her beta work on this and the other 24 drabbles.

And with that, enjoy!
