A/N: So… This story has come to a close. :D I know it came fast with only 11 chapters, but I am excited because that means that I can now focus on my other stories rather than having a lot of stories I have to try to update.
I also am going to put this here and also at the bottom of this story. I don't want to sound really snotty or anything, but if I get 20ish reviews, I will make a one-shot of the… uh, since I don't want to give anything away yet, scene that I have been waiting to try my hand at writing. I will post what scene that is at the bottom of the chapter as an authors note. Well I hope you enjoy this and if I get a lot of reviews telling me to make a sequel, then I will most likely do it.
Disclaimer: I don't own the Twilight Saga or any of it's characters. I only own the plot of this fanfiction.
I sighed staring at the ceiling. I was lying on the sofa at Emily's house. I barely ever left. I stayed on the reservation most of the time; it was my only safe haven. I didn't want to talk or look at Edward right now. Well, I did want to, but it would ruin everything I was trying to do.
Jake tried to cheer me up. He would try to get me to go to the movies, bowling, or even just run, but I refused to go. I didn't want to do anything except lie on the couch. I would help Emily cook for the boys, but that was about it.
Edward tried to talk to me, but I was never there. I refused to answer the phone, and I never phased while Sam, Jared, or Paul were wolves because they acted like telephones. All three of them had imprinted, so they could understand how much pain I was in. They would say how he really missed me and wanted me back, and -when I didn't respond- they would stand by Edward and he would talk to me through their thoughts.
I would get so furious that I would see red. I would yell incoherent thoughts at them and phase back. I refused to run with them from then on. I would only run with Quil, Embry, Leah, or Jacob. Leah and Jacob had never run together yet… or even seen each other since the phase. I suggested that they run the perimeter together tonight. I just wanted to sleep.
So there I was, staring at the ceiling, feeling like I was cut in half. I felt broken and knew I would never heal unless I was with Edward again. I sighed again and closed my eyes. The next thing I knew, I was being shaken awake.
"W-what?" I stuttered as I met the dark eyes of Jacob Black. "What is it?"
"Uh… hey. So our shift's over and I thought I would let you know that… uh… IimprintedonLeahandsheonme."
"Huh? Could you say that again but slower."
He took a deep breath. "I… uh… imprinted on Leah and, well… she did on me."
I sat there stunned and then broke into a painful grin. "That's great! I knew that you two would be great together."
"Yeah…" He rubbed the back of his neck nervously. "I think you should go back. To Edward, I mean."
I jumped up. "Not you too!" I glared at him.
He looked at me. "He's your other half, as you are his. Your hurting like he's hurting; it's not fair to him."
"But he deserves someone better… someone of his own kind! I can't go back. You were right." He looked at me, confused. "What you said on that run."
He groaned. "Bella, why the hell did you listen to me? I was jealous. I… I had a crush on you since we were kids. I didn't want you to be with him. I'm so sorry. I didn't want this to happen. Please forgive me and go back to him."
I stared at him. I was furious: he hurt both me and my imprint for nothing! I tried to calm myself and stood up stiffly. I would give him a piece of my mind later, but my first priority was to talk to Edward and beg him for forgiveness.
I ran out of the house and phased after I took off my clothes and tied them to my ankle. I was glad I had my mind to myself. I was running to the treaty line with no other thought other than to see Edward.
I got to the treaty line and paced absently up and down the line. Edward wasn't there so I took off in the direction of the house. I was afraid that he may have left.
I arrived to at the house to be greeted by Carlisle and Esme. I forgot how much their scent hurt my nose. I flinched back and whined in pain. Esme gave me an apologetic look. I whined again and dipped my head. I wanted to ask where Edward was.
Carlisle seemed to know what I wanted. "Edward went off into the woods… in that direction." He pointed north.
I nodded my head in thanks and took off after his scent. I felt my heart racing as the scent grew stronger. I was getting close and I was anticipating seeing his face.
I was behind a tree when I heard a growl. I looked around and saw Edward a few yards away tackling a mountain lion. He fell to the ground with it in his arms as his teeth sank into its neck.
I was fascinated by the sight, and I knew I should be disturbed or disgusted. It really wasn't that different from how animals hunted; just instead of ripping the animal apart, he drank its blood.
I quickly and quietly phased back and got dressed. I leaned against the tree in view of him as I waited for him to be done.
He shot up from the dead animal without even a hair out of place. I stared at him before a smile broke across my face. He hadn't seen me yet, so I decided to have some fun.
"So… does it always look like that when you hunt? I never imagined that it would look like that. I thought it would be scarier. Some vampire you are."
His body turned to face me so fast that it would have been a blur to a human. "Bella?" he gasped, staring at me with intense golden eyes. "Bella!"
I smiled slightly at him. "Yes." I pushed away from the tree and took a step towards him. "I… need to talk to you, apologize."
He stared at me. "There's no reason to. I wasn't being a good boyfriend, ignoring you like that."
I shook my head and laughed darkly. "That wasn't the reason."
I spent the next hour explaining and telling him that I spent the whole time just sitting somewhere, staring at nothing in particular. He told me it was the same for him.
"So… I know I have no right to ask but… will you take me back?" I asked looking down, waiting for the final no.
He laughed. "What kind of question is that? Of course I'll take you back. You didn't even have to ask. I just have one question I want to ask, though…"
"I gave him a half-joyful, half-curious look. "…yes?"
He grinned at me and pulled me to my feet. He knelt down on one knee, and I felt my breathing catch. "Isabella Swan. I promise to love you every minute of forever. Will you marry me?"
I gasped at him for a few seconds before I whispered, "Yes."
He kissed my hand and then picked me up and spun me around in a circle.
We told everyone the good news when we got home, and he put his mothers ring on my finger. Two months later, I was officially Isabella Marie Swan Mason Cullen. We planned on being together for the rest of our existences, and that was one promise that the both of us kept.
A/N: And that's the end! Thank you everyone who stayed with me through this story. So the scene that I will write it I get 20ish reviews is their wedding scene. I know I am asking for a lot, but I will stop working on my other stories once I get 20ish reviews for that chapter to write that scene. I actually have the wedding all planned out in my head. I want to thank all of you again for reading my story.
Also, if I get enough requests for a sequel I will write one. Please tell me if you want me to write a sequel or just leave it where it is in a PM, review, or on my facebook page. Hope you all have a great night! ~JerinAnn
