'While I was there, under the guise of updating a few files before I left, I sent an email to Edward, asking him if he'd be able to come to Juneau for a few days when he returned from Isle Esme with Bella and Renesmee. I asked him to come alone, just to be safe. His reply was quick, promising to come as soon as they returned and Rosalie and Emmett returned from their trip to New York City.' Ahh, I was worried up to this point, wondering what happened with the rest of the gang. I imagine they did split up because of Jasper. :-|
'Things fell into place rather simply after that. Angela hadn't been killed that day in May. It was likely that she'd been hurt and left for dead.(...) Less idly, I wondered why Edward and Bella, who still lived in Forks, hadn't mentioned that one of the few humans to let herself be friends with them had "died" so tragically.' Excellent question. Poor Ben...
'"No, and we've run out of paint for the trim," she answered. "You don't work tonight. Is it dark enough yet for you to go and get some before the store closes?" "It is. Can you spare your assistant, though? If Charlotte would like to go with me, that is." There was a sudden, small whirl of air around me as Charlotte left the room, returning seconds later in another gust of wind with her coat and shoes on. "I'm not sure if she wants to go," Esme remarked, barely keeping a straight face.' *chuckles* X-)
"I wanted to ask you if you and Peter are absolutely sure that changing your diet is what you really want to do." "We were going to try and do this before Alice died, Carlisle. We'd already decided, even before she and Jasper came and asked us to go to Forks.(...) I wanted to be her sister properly. I wanted to be able to go shopping with her and go to school with her, do all the things that she loved to do and had been telling me about for decades. I'm still going to do those things. I don't want to do them without her, but I'm going to do them for her." It's good to know they're doing it out of some conviction, not just to stay near Jasper. ^_^
'There's something different about you. I don't care what it is. You seem kind. I promise to never ask questions you don't want to answer, and I won't ever say a word to anyone. But can I ask you something? Could you check on me every once in a while? You don't have to tell me you are, but I feel like you could help me when I need help. Please. - Sarah' A message to Carlisle, I guess. She must be affraid, poor thing.
Good start, Skep. I just keep wondering what happened with Alice. Of all the Cullens, she was the last I would expect something like this to happen. :(
