3 years after New Moon. Alice never came, and Bella married Jacob.
I woke up to see a figure sitting in the rocking chair (that I'd brought from Charlie's to my new house).
"Jacob?" I called. My husband, Jacob, had gone a stag night with the pack for Quil's wedding, but he could have come back…
"You're awake?" I heard a velvety voice say in surprise. Ok, I knew I was dreaming. He hadn't contacted me for three years. THREE YEARS! So I had to be dreaming.
"Bella, are you awake?" he said again. He brushed his hand against my cheek, and I felt the cold touch. I smelt his scent. He was actually here.
"Edward!" I sobbed, and I flung myself at him.
"Bella" he whispered, hugging me close. I cried all over his shoulder, clinging myself to him. He was back. My true love was back.
"Why are you here?" I choked out finally. Edward looked like he'd have tears on his face too.
"Do you want me to leave?" he asked.
"No!" I almost shouted.
"I had to see how you were getting on" It would have made sense to scream at him, to tell him to get out of my house. But I couldn't.
"But… why do you care…?"
"I've always loved you. I lied to you Bella" I was still as this sank in
"Bella… you're married. I didn't expect for you to wake up…" he said slowly.
"No… Please" I said under my breath, tears colouring my tone. This couldn't be happening. No, no, no, no.
"I promise to let you get on with your life. Sorry for intruding" Edward told me. I counted to ten. He watched me.
"You can't leave me again!" I screamed. Shock crossed his eyes, and he stood up.
"I'm sorry" he said.
"Please Edward! I love you!" I sobbed.
"The reason I left was so you could live peacefully" Edward said, his voice breaking with grief.
"My life wasn't better! Victoria hunted me, Laurent tried to kill me! Nothing was better!" I protested.
"What?!" Edward cried. I nodded.
"You're safe with Jacob" He told me, and maybe him self.
"Please" was all I whispered "I still love you with all my heart"
"But you married Jacob!" he accused. I stood up.
"Only to make everyone happy! I felt nothing but grief on my wedding day! And I've been carrying that guilt for a year!" I shrieked.
"Bella…" he was at loss for words.
"I know I'm too old for you! I know I'm pathetic!" I ranted on "Tell me you love me and life will be worth living again!"
"I love you" he said, pulling me into his arms. And we flew out the window together, leaving the human world behind. Jacob would be heart broken, but it was better is he found someone who loved him back. I smiled radiantly. It had all happened too fast, but finally I was with the only one for me.
