AfterIt follows me.
My silver skeined ghost.
An almost imperceptible thread;
only visible when you shine light
directly upon it.
It follows me.
It rides the underground.
It hides under bridges,
It is woven into the spools of tar
that form the roads between.
Inevitably if I walk too fast
it reminds me -
Like the tug of stitches in your cheek
that reminds you; you have lost your wisdom.
It reminds me.
It trips me in doorways,
when my mind is elsewhere.
If I look away from it -
- it slips round my neck.
Another knot to throw over the beams
it mauls me without a fair chance.
I tried to sever it. I can't.
Only the corrosion of time has a chance.
So for now, I am tethered
to the fragment of my heart
that I tore out for you.
Although we have placed it in a shroud
and declared it dead,
the umbilical thrumming keeps me awake.
It does not desist;
the connection to that unwanted slab of meat.

Jacob's eyes, the ones that once longed for me now held nothing but an indescribable amount of confusion and hatred. Jacob wrapped his arm around covering his face.
"Crap Bella, you reek. It's sickening!" he yelled with a laugh, trying to lighten the mood. "Listen I'm sorry I said..." he choked on the last part because I was suddenly on top of him. My hands pressed against his shoulders and as soon as I started to hear them snapping I gave him a smug smile and bared my teeth.
"I'm going to kill you. Filthy dog! I growled at him. His expression changed when he realized that I was actually doing some damage to his body. He kicked me off of him and in the process of being flung a few feet away I snapped my teeth at his arm. I only managed to graze the skin. I cringed at the taste of his blood. It was bitter, disgusting even and although I knew I would always hate Jacob's blood all my body wanted to do was drain it from him.. We danced around the small clearing as I tried to ide

Edward and I made it down third, Esme followed after us. I walked over to Alice who had an amused look on her face. I eyed her with a curious look and let my eyes wander around the room from Alice to Jasper-Carlisle-Esme, They were all seeming to look in opposite directions of each other, then finally resting on Edward. "What is it?" I asked him.
His eyes softened as he looked at me. "Nothing to worry about just Emmett and Rose." He answered softly. I turned back to the staircase and closed my eyes attempting to concentrate. My hand flew over my mouth as I attempted to contain my laughter. I threw my head in Alice's direction and watched her eyes narrow. She wore the same expression on her face. Edward's arm wrapped around me, as he steered me in the direction of the door. "We're heading out now, they can catch up to us." He told me.
"Are they always like this?" I asked in an incredulous tone. Edward just laughed at me.
"Only after a big fight or after a hunt sometimes before o

Out of everything I was feeling the burning pain was the strongest. My vision was black, but I was sure I was still conscious because I could still make out Edward fussing over me. I reached out calling for Edward. "Stay with me." I begged him. I felt him pull me closer as I heard footseps approach, Esme's voice, then two pairs of footsteps depart. I felt drained of energy from the constant pain and I drifted to sleep to the sound of an angel humming my lullaby. That night I dreamed of Charlie and he seemed lifeless without me around. I suddenly felt a pang of regret putting Edward before my family. As I watched Charlie discard the dishes into the sink and take the stairs to bed I started to cry paniced tears. I struggled to get to Charlie but I felt an invisible resistance and the angel telling me I was fine.
I fought my heavy lids and was finally able to open them, the darkness was finally gone. "Edward, where are you?" I paniced, my voice raspy. He grabbed my a

The second he announced the kiss Edward had already pulled me against him. "We have to move before Jacob wakes up." Edward urged. We headed for the front door. The Moment we were outside Edward threw me onto his back. We raced through the airport towards the ticket booth. I took a seat as I watched Edward's expressions change as he argued calmly for tickets. Finally I watched Edward take the tickets and motion for me to hurry over. He led me through the crowd as he handed our tickets over and then he hurried me onto the plane. I could see how tense Edward was as we settled into our seats, so my guess was that Jacob was probably waking up about now. Not to long after out take off I heard Edward mention that Jacob was fully recovered and heading back to Forks. "So he's finally given up on me then?" I asked. "Not....exactly. He'll be waiting for us and he's prepared to try and kill me, you too if i've bitten you." he said in a monotone voice. "Can't we avoid him? I don't want him to hurt

"-ella!....Bella stop screaming!" Edward shouted as he shook me. The ringing in my ears had stopped, and when did I start screaming? My eyes rose back to Alice's face, she looked like she was concentrating on something and I followed her gaze down to her arm. I watched in amazement as her skin stretched slowly closing up each slice of her skin. "She's not in pain is she?" I asked Edward with curiosity in my voice. He just laughed. "If anything she's uncomfortable. Remember how tough our skin is." He said matter-of-factly. Alice then tore off part of her shredded shirt and wiped the blood off of her arm. I stared at her, my jaw hanging open. There wasn't even one scar where there had been scratches. I turned to Edward "Now won't you be happy when I can heal myself like that." I told him. "Sure, put me out of a job." he just shook his head and turned to Alice. "What happened?" he asked. "I was checking up on Charlie, for Bella. He wasn't in the house so I left, and Jacob and his pack wer

As we approached the Cullen's house, Emmett's paced running slowed to a walk. We were soon joined by Edward and Alice from behind, whom greeted Emmett with a smile. "Bella, You can get down now. We've stopped moving." Emmett told me. My grip didn't loosen. "He Edward would you like to carry your terrified bride over the threshold?" Emmett laughed. I could hear Edward walk over and tear me off of Emmett's back. I clutched onto Edwards neck, shaking. "He's much....faster...then he...looks." I panted. Edward laughed and kissed my forehead. "Sorry about that." Edward said. I shot a glare in Emmett's direction. "Thanks bro!" I added as much sarcasm to the last word as I could, but he just laughed. Edward started off towards the front door with me and before I knew it Alice was there, holding the door open, smiling at us. As soon as we entered the house we were immediately greeted by Esme and Carlisle, Jasper and Rosalie were standing a few feet behind them."Congratulations, it's

We started to walk around, figuring they would have built a chapel close to the airport for people who pulled a stunt like we were. The slightest hint of night was making way and I figured Charlie was just about home by now.
"Found one?" I asked gleefully, not bothering to look away from the concrete. I could hear a small growl building in his throat. "Not exactly." he said, through clenched teeth as he slipped in front of me. I snapped out of my daze and peered past Edward to see what he was blocking me from. My eyes widened. "Oh no, no, no, NO!" I shouted. "Jake, go home!" I was furious now. "Bella, what do you think you're doing with that filthy bloodsucker!" Jacob shouted, half mad, half curious. "I was watching the house and then I see the two of you leave in such a rush. What was I suposed to do!?" Jacob was nearly in hysterics now. I followed Edwards gaze to a chapel about six buildings down. Could we outrun Jacob? Would he make a scene in a public building? I th

I watched as the speedometer hit eighty. Edward knew I still didn't like fast speeds, so he etried to distract me. "So, what made you change your mind?" he asked. I couldn't tell him the main reason, that i'd do anything to spend forever with him...even give up my life, so I opted for the second reason. "Because I figure it's better then ever having to be appart from you again.." I smiled hoping not to give myself away. "Plus, I was the one that started the whole marriage subject a year and a half ago." I gave him a smug look. His eyes looked intruiged. "You did?" He thought for a while. "Ah yes, when you asked about Emmett and Rosalie, I had nearly forgotten." He smiled his crooksmile that I loved. Something dawned on me just then "Does the rest of your family know about this?" I asked. "Well, if Alice has had any visions i'm sure they all know by now." he said. "So what's the plan after the wedding?" I asked trying not to sound to eager. " Iwas thinking about doing it at t
