Chapter 3.

Alice had stayed with Jacob longer than she normally would but she knew Edward was waiting for her at home. She had blackmailed Jasper but Edward knew better. He could see right through her. At times like these she wished her and Edward didn't have such a good psychic connection.

Jacob had offered to go with her but Alice cared for him too much to be attacked by Emmett or Carlisle. They would rip him to pieces.

She drove her yellow Porsche up to the house and sure enough Edwards car was parked outside with him inside, waiting for her. She knew there was no way she could slip past him. She sighed, walking over to the passenger side and getting into the car.

"We're going for a ride." Edward said.


"Don't Edward me. Something is going on with you, and you smell... like Bella?"

"Wait what? Why would I smell like Bella?" Edward was now speeding through the streets.

"You smell like Bella after she's come back from the reservation. You smell like the dogs." Edward gripped the steering wheel tightly.

"Oh... I ran into Jacob earlier. I was a little close to the border and he-"

"Bull." Alice knew better than to try and lie to Edward. "Something is going on. You lied to Rosalie earlier today. You and Rosalie tell each other everything."

"Edward, I really want to tell you what's going on. I mean, you should be able to relate but I just can't."

"Alice, I promise not to judge you." Edward stared at Alice next to him, never lowering his driving speed.

"Don't make promises you can't keep Edward."

"Alice, if you're in trouble-"

She cut him off with a laugh. "I'm not in trouble, i'm in love."

"With a human or something?"

"Or something." She muttered. He looked at her with a raised eyebrow. Alice sighed, maybe he would take this better than she thought. "Edward, it's Jacob. I've been seeing Jacob Black."

Edward slammed on the brakes and if humans had been in the car, they would have flown through the windshield. Edward didn't say anything. He stayed silent and unmoving

After what felt like a lifetime, Edward spoke, "Bella has been spending less time with him." He said to himself. "You're spending less time shopping with Rosalie." He finally turned to her. "How have you been able to keep this a secret?"

"Trust me, it's been extremely hard. Could you imagine not thinking of Bella whenever I was around?"

"No. I always think of Bella."


"But Alice... Jacob Black? A wolf? This is going to get really really bad."

"You can't help who you love Edward. You know this better than anything."

"When did all of this happen?"

"Shortly after we got back from Italy. I met him before then though, when I went to visit Bella after I thought she had died. Things kind of escalated from there. I kept coming up with reasons to go close to the border, hoping he would smell me and find me. Sure enough; he did."

"And you love him?" He said with a hint of disgust.

"I do. I really do."

"Does he want you to turn him? Are you going to stay with him when he's old? What about the Volturi? What if he is just messing with you? Looking for a little fun with the Vampire Girl?"

"Edward, stop it!"

"Well? These are questions you need to answer. These are the questions that run through my mind everyday when I think about Bella and I."

"We haven't discussed any of this yet. I haven't even told him how I really feel about him."

"Why not?

"What if he does think we're just having fun? What if it is a big joke to him?"

"This should probably be a conversation between you and Rosalie." He muttered to himself. "You need a chick to talk about these things with."


"What are you going to do Alice? And I don't mean start thinking about the dog when I am around. You have to tell Esme and Carlisle. This could hurt the whole family. Not to mention his pack."

"I know. And I honestly do not know what I'm going to do. But... You're on my side thought right? I mean, you're not mad at me or anything?"

"No Alice. I can't be mad at you when you're doing the same as me. You're my sister and you love who you love. Plus; your being with Jacob means he's not really after Bella."

Alice laughed. "I should tell Bella should I?"

"She'd be crushed if you didn't."

"Yeah, you're right. Jake and I should tell her together."

"Count me out of that conversation." They both laughed, "C'mon Pixie. Let's go home. Just remember to shower when you get there before you talk to anyone."

"Shut up."
