Chapter 2- Dead? Bella's p.o.v. Burning pain racked throughout my body.
People say death is supposed to be quick and painless, but it is not. If I ever can connect with some crazy person like the ones from "Ghost Hunters" I will tell them that death is indeed painful. I felt like I was on fire. Everything burned so badly I wanted to die (again of course. It’s not like I could come back to life). Maybe I wound up in hell and heaven is beautiful, because all I see is black. I can't see a thing. Not even conjure up a picture of someone or something. Wait, something feels odd..... I listened closer (or tried to. Do dead people have ears?). I am hearing the thud of my heartbeat, over and over again. What the HELL?!?! I'm supposed to be dead for god's sake! How is my heart beating?! I heard the whispers of people around me, and I felt that I was in someone's arms. But, I couldn't be sure because I couldn't even feel the temperature (other than BLISTERING PAIN!!!) God Dammit! Am I dead or not? I need answers people!!!!!!! My back arched, trying to shake away the pain and I let out a small scream. "Don't fidget Bella." I heard a fatherly voice speak to me. Wait, I'd know that voice any day..... "CARLISLE!" I yelled in pain. "Yes, Bella, it's me." Carlisle soothed.
"But...you...huh????" I said in confusion. I heard a light tinkling laugh and a booming laugh as well. "I know that's you Alice, Emmett." I spoke to them. "Can you open your eyes Bella?" Carlisle asked me. "No." I almost yelled and let out a scream of pain. The temperature had increased and now I felt like I was standing right on the sun. I felt air whoosh around us. "I'm so sorry Bella." Carlisle apologized. "You were dying quickly and I changed you with a second to spare. I couldn't loose my daughter like that." He admitted. "Daughter?" I forced out and pressed my lips together to keep from screaming from the fire. The air continued to fly past us. They must be running. "Of course Bella. You were always like a daughter to Esme and I, and a sister to Alice, Emmett, Jasper.... and maybe Rosalie." Carlisle said uncertainly at the end. I let out a small, but tortured laugh. "She never really liked me... I didn't expect her to change." I said breathlessly. We dropped the subject and they continued to run, updating me on where we were, every five minutes. It's strange, Alice, Emmett, or Carlisle never mentioned Edward. Panic then hit me. Edward
would be there. He would be at their house. I'd have to live an eternity hiding my feelings from my love. He would never love me the same as he did. And he would have probably already hooked up with another vampire. From what my past information has told me, a vampire named Tanya already had the hots for him. So I would spend my eternity hiding my feelings not from Edward, but his mate and the family as well. And I couldn't run away. I'm a newborn vampire, I'd probably kill someone. Someone with family. Family. Oh Charlie! Charlie and Renee will be crushed after hearing about my death. And worst of all, Charlie will be the one to face the bloodied bed and floor. But on the bright side, I will be starting a new life with a wonderful family. With one exception. I wonder how my death will be feigned. Probably an article in the Forks Newspaper about Isabella Swan disappearing mysteriously, leaving blood behind her. I suspect the Black's will also be mourning over my death. Poor Jake, I will never see my best friend again. The pain was still consuming me, and I couldn't open my eyes, STILL!!! I felt like every part of me was being weighed down by bricks. The fire still licked every part of me, and my heart rate was getting faster and faster. I felt the person who was carrying me slow down. "We're here Bella." Emmett said to me. "And where is here?" I asked in a tight voice and let out a little grunt of pain. Emmett laughed. "Your new home. In Alaska." He told me.
I heard the creak of a door open and many gasps of relief fill my ears. I felt something soft under me. Someone must have laid me on a couch. "Thank goodness you saved her in time." I heard Esme breathe. "Esme." I smiled lightly. "Oh, Bella!" I heard her cry and something hugged me. Esme. "Are you alright dear?" She asked me, her voice full of concern. Which part, the being depressed part, or wanting to die part? "So far." I shrugged but I felt fire take a stab at my heart. I bit my lip and writhed on the couch. "No, I spoke to soon." I admitted weakly. I heard Emmett laugh. "Bella! I'm so happy! You're finally going to be my sister!" Alice squealed. "Fine, but no Bella Barbie." I told her seriously. Everyone then laughed but quieted down when I screamed in pain. Fire was shooting rapid bullets at my heart. “What is it Bella?” I heard Carlisle fret. “The…pain!” I forced out between clenched teeth.
“Don’t worry Bella.” I heard Jasper assure me. “You have about two more days until the change is complete. I groaned. Two more days?! “What?! I have to go do something. Call me on my cell phone if you need me!” I heard Alice call to us and then there was the sound of a slamming door. I wonder what she is going to do. Alice’s p.o.v. The plane bumped sharply on the runway and bounced a couple more times before slowing down and rolling to its gate. I was landing in Brazil. To get Edward. He ran for Brazil when he found out that Victoria had gone there. Edward was afraid Victoria would go after Bella, so he made it his duty to hunt her down and kill her. Quite stupid if you ask me, but we all do silly things for love. There was a beeping sound and the lights brightened the dark cabin. I wasted no time getting out of first class and exiting the airplane. I made my way through the almost empty airport and out the big glass sliding doors. I called for a cab and gave the driver the directions to where to take me. An hour later, I arrived in a ghetto kind of alley, the poorest area of Brazil. I walked into the dark alley and opened the door I had seen Edward hid into while waiting for the sun to go down. The small, empty room was covered in dust. All except for a figure in the shadows which was Edward.
I stared into the corner. A pair of bright yellow eyes suddenly popped into the dark. “Alice.” I heard Edward’s voice speak to me and he moved into view for me to see him. “I told you not to bother me unless it was extremely important. And right now, without Bella, nothing is important to me.” He sulked and stared down at the ground. “It is about Bella.” I assured him. Edward’s head snapped up at the sound of her name and looked at me eagerly. “What? What happened?” He demanded. I showed him the vision of me and Bella from when he saved her from the car at Fork’s high. Bella’s eyes a vibrant crimson, her skin pale white. Bella as a vampire. Edward gasped and his eyes filled with pain. “Say it isn’t so Alice!” He begged and moved closer to me. “But it is Edward.” I said gravely. “Bella was dying when Carlisle and I found her. We couldn’t stand to lose her.” Edward put his head in his hands. “Her change is complete Edward.” I spoke up. “And you will have to come back with me.” I said sternly. “I’ll just hurt her.” His voice was muffled by his hands. “No, I think Bella will hurt you.” I corrected.
He took his head out of his hands and looked up at me quizzically. “New born, duh.” I rolled my eyes. Edward smiled lightly. “But…but what if she doesn’t accept me back?” He frowned. “Whenever we have to mention your name, Jasper tells me a wave of love passes through her. With that said, I’m pretty sure she’s in love with you.” I told him with a grin. “She could be faking it.” He grumbled. I raised an eyebrow. “Edward, you know very well that it is hard to control your emotions as a newborn vampire.” I said frustrated with him. Edward just sighed. “Listen buck ‘o.” I snarled. “Bella was basically beaten when she died.” Edward’s face turned hard and a growl erupted from his chest. “The attacker left soon after we arrived and Emmett hunted him up and killed him. And did you know that the last thing she said was that she loved you?” My voice was getting higher with anger each sentence. “Bella must have not realized she said it out loud because she never asked if we heard her speak anything.” I showed him the vision of Bella. Her head cracked open, blood everywhere, her body ashy white, eyes closed, blood slightly trailing down her mouth, shirt torn. “I love you Edward.” She rasped.
Edward and I came back to the present and he looked at me with pain and full out anger. “I’m coming home.” He said deathly. “Finally!” I said exasperated and threw my hands up in the air. Edward got off the floor and followed me out the door and into the alley.
