Summary; Bella keeps in contact with Angela through email. What Drama will unfold?

BPOV

At the end of my school life I got an email address from Angela. She was the only person I was bothered to keep in contact with after I became a vampire. I of course had my email registered as in readiness for my marriage. Hers was .com.

After we had got rid of the Volturi and we had toured the globe as a big family stopping at some of the Cullens other houses and whilst we were there Nessie, Edward & I went on a tour of the area whilst everyone else added an extra room to the houses. It was whilst we were in Wiltshire seeing the Wootton Bassett High street we had seen in the BBC News often in June I remembered that I had an email. It was actually by the newish war memorial just outside the post office and book store and I had just questioned him about World War 1&2 thinking about all the people devastated by the loss of the life. Alice had predicted this so when I got back I immediately checked my email and found I had 18 messages with 17 of them from Angela each getting a little more disheartened yet still told me what I was missing at first they were once a fortnight then that became once a month when I did not respond. It seemed that Jess & Mike had finally got together and were at Washington College taking classes in magazine editing. Eric was at Seattle and apparently being a complete flirt whilst still being able to pass his exams. Apparently the subject was sociology and how computers were helping people communicate. I planned to reply that this was an example. She also always included a snippet about her and Ben. It turns out they had both managed to get in to Dartmouth as well and she was surprised that she hadn't seen me at all. I felt slightly guilty reading this. Her relationship with Ben was still going strong and they were now engaged although not planning on getting married for a while. She also asked about me and the Cullens and what was going on in that front.

I started replying to her as soon as I finished reading but debated what to tell her as there was no real manual on how to stay in contact with human friends. Sensing my unease (and it was him not Jasper as Jasper was hunting) Edward told me to put the truth as much as possible. It was Nessie who gave me the best idea though. I could pretend I got bitten by something in the Amazon and be like the Cullens I could even send her a picture of me to back up my story. I wouldn't mention the super bits of it though just the appearance. Now that I knew exactly what I would be saying I started typing.

Hey Angela

Sorry for not replying earlier. I thought an apology to begin with would be a good idea. For a summary of what has going on in my life; I married Edward, we went on a honeymoon on a beautiful island owned by Edward's mum Esme. We stayed there for 2 weeks before coming home. Then guess what! I was pregnant! Edward had a hard time accepting it at first because he didn't think he could have kids but after a while he also let himself fall in love with her. This did mean we had to put back our education until she was born hence the fact that you have not seen me at Dartmouth but neither of us minded and the Cullens were extremely supportive. Everyone else also put back their education for our sakes so they could help with her including Rose because as she couldn't be pregnant she didn't want to miss being an aunt. I know we could have attended school in between but none of us felt up to it so we saw the world. The Amazon is amazing. I'll add more about that in my next email. My baby's name is Renesmee a combination of Esme & Renee. She is a perfect split of Edward and I. That brings me on to my next important news. In the Amazon I picked up a disease from one of the local insects. It turns out this was the same insect that had affected the rest of the Cullens resulting in their pale skin and golden eyes. Do not misunderstand this they took every precaution to make sure I didn't get the disease but 1 got through. I worried about the affect this would have on Nessie but it seems that she got the pale skin but kept my eyes so they were not lost. The final event that happened was that we got an unexpected visit from some of Emmet's family who had finally decided to track him down after putting him up for adoption over 14 years ago. Let's just say we were lucky that that it was resolved peacefully because we had the upper hand.

Do you remember Jake? He was helping around whilst I was ill and stayed around after. It turns out that there is more love at first sight than I thought as even though Ness is only 3 months Jake fell in love with her the moment he first saw her. At the moment he sees her as a delicate younger sister and he is always helping around. Edward almost attacked him when he found out but was too busy attending to me. I'm so glad that Jacob was honest about how he felt about Nessie as otherwise we may have had another full blown war on our hands. On the plus side we don't have to worry about who our child will end up with as we know for certain that it will be Jacob also not that he besotted by Nessie has got rid of his fixation with me.

We are now living in the Dartmouth area ready to start our life at Dartmouth in the fall so I may see you. Let me know in your next email which block you are in. I still see Charlie and the guys in La Push regularly although most of the visits are rushed. I am happy to hear about you & Ben as I know you deserve each other. Email back soon and I promise I'll reply ASAP this time.

Bella

Now all I had to do was hope she responds.
