Author's Note: Welcome to my new version of "Breaking Dawn." With the new movie coming out soon, I got to thinking about how much I really don't like this book and what happens to Jacob. I find it totally out of character for him as Alpha and leader of the Quileute tribe to imprint on a half breed vampire baby. I mean, if imprinting is all about passing on the wolf gene and making sure there is always a pack to protect the tribe from vampires, why on earth would he imprint on his mortal enemy?

ANYWAY . . . I had a thought pop into my head one day, what if Jacob returned BEFORE the wedding and went to see Bella? That is where this story begins. As always, please let me know what you think by reviewing. I have tried really hard to work on my writing skills for this story, so I would appreciate your feedback!

PROLOGUE

As hunger ripped through him once again, the wolf crept along silently, staying close to the forest floor, losing bits of his russet fur to the brambles, never taking his eyes from his prey. He paused for a moment as the small doe bent its head to take a drink of the cool water from the mountain stream, completely unaware of the danger she was in. The scent of the deer filled his nostrils and his intense hunger drove him to attack, pouncing on its back to bring it down, his teeth sinking into its neck for the kill. As the wolf took what he needed to sate his hunger, a small part of him remembered another time and another place . . . and a girl with brown eyes he was finding it impossible to forget.
