New Moon Alternate Ending

Chapter 41

Eventually morning came and I was lying holding Bella to my chest, revelling in holding her tightly against me. My eyes were closed as I relaxed in bed with my wife. I loved that it was just a time to relax together. We had been up all night consummating our marriage due to the fact neither of us needed sleep and we had plenty of energy until we needed our next feed. Lying here with Bella felt very easy and natural. I started to trail my fingers softly and slowly down the contours of Bella's spine as if I was lightly tracing patterns on her skin. Bella let out a sigh of contentment and I pressed a kiss to her hair, wishing I could know what she was thinking.

"A million dollars for your thoughts?"

Bella chuckled slightly and pressed a kiss to my collarbone.

"I was just thinking… we belong together."

"Forever."

Bella moved slightly again as if she was going to kiss my neck but instead she coughed a little and spat out something white and fluffy. I realised it was a bunch of feathers.

"What the…"

I looked around to notice the room was covered in white feathers, as well as Bella and I. I knew immediately what had happened. I remembered biting a pillow to help control myself. I wondered how Bella would take it.

"Edward where have all the feathers come from?"

I just had to chuckle at that.

"I… um I bit a pillow last night."

"You what?"

Bella just stared at me, unable to believe what I had just said. I couldn't wait to remind her that she broke the headboard.

"I bit the pillow. I got carried away slightly and I didn't want to bite you."

"You bit the pillow?"

Bella just laughed, looking around the room. This was my moment.

"You can't talk. You broke the headboard!"

Bella gasped at my words, looking at me in shock.

"I broke the headboard?"

I nodded, a smirk forming on face, causing Bella to frown.

"Hey don't smirk at me. How did I break the headboard?"

My smirk just continued to grow. Bella just rolled her eyes at how smug I looked.

"I'm guessing you got carried away last night as well my love. You certainly seemed to enjoy yourself last night."

Bella slapped me on the arm, glaring at me.

"You probably would have broken the headboard if I hadn't."

I just let out a chuckle and pulled my wife into my arms so she was laying on my chest.

"I'm sure I would have. That was fantastic first night as husband and wife my dear sweet Bella."

"Mmm it sure was baby."

I manoeuvred our bodies so we were looking into one another's eyes.

"I love you baby."

Bella grinned up at me, reaching out to caress my cheek.

"I love you too baby."

"Want to continue consummating our marriage?"

"I'm surprised you even have to ask!"

The honeymoon continued to be amazing. It was complete paradise. It was complete perfection. We had been on Isle Esme for about four weeks and I had had the most amazing time. It had been better than any holiday I had ever been on. The island was so beautiful. I felt like I could live there forever. We had to go to the mainland of Rio de Janeiro to hunt but that was fine with us. We didn't have to go too often as we were on our own and didn't feel the need to hunt. Once a week we had a few cleaners come and ensure the house was perfect. One of the cleaners was an older woman who gave Bella pitiful looks while glaring at me. I had explained to Bella that her thoughts were full of how evil I was and how I must have changed Bella when she was an innocent girl who fell in love with me. Bella had told me to ignore her as she didn't know what she was talking about. She was just suspicious and was going on what she had been told about vampires when she was younger. I was always polite to her even though she wouldn't speak to me. I just continued my happy life, not letting the woman get to me. I was so happy at the moment nothing could bring me down. It was so nice to just have time together without any interruptions, despite the cleaners coming in once a week. As much as I missed my family, I knew it was good for Bella and I to have some alone time. I probably would have gone insane if I had all my siblings around me constantly, especially Emmett making jokes about our sex life. This time allowed us to settle into our married life before we would go home and re-join the rest of the family. There would always be the opportunities to have time to ourselves over the years ahead as many of the others had done. I knew it was nice for Bella to have such a big family after being an only child for so long. I loved that my family accepted Bella so easily. I just couldn't believe how lucky I was.

Bella had spent the day reading 'Pride and Prejudice' on the beach, taking in the beautiful surroundings, while I was having a swim. I had told Bella she would have been able to swim with the dolphins and tropical fish if she was human but now she was a vampire, the fish could sense a predator nearby so kept well away.

I decided to get out of the water and rejoin my wife on the beach. I knew she loved the James Bond film 'Casino Royale' and knew I could re-enact Daniel Craig coming out of the water. I saw Bella lower her sunglasses as she watched me walk out of the water. I knew she was enjoying perving over me walking out of the water in my speedos. I walked over to Bella and sat down on my towel, smiling at my wife, knowing I could tease her.

"Have I got something on my face love?"

Bella chuckled at that.

"I'm glad you can't hear my thoughts as they're not ladylike at the moment."

I smirked at that.

"You thinking about James Bond?"

"How did you know?"

I leaned in and kissed my wife's cheek.

"Because you made me watch that film so many times. I was just waiting for the perfect moment to re-enact it for you."

Bella reached out and grabbed the nape of my neck, pulling me down in for a kiss. I manoeuvred myself so I was on top of Bella. We kissed passionately, our tongues fighting for dominance. Eventually Bella gave in and let me dominate her. We kept kissing, our hands trailing down one another's bodies. I rolled us over onto my towel so Bella was on top. I still didn't want to crush my wife even though she was a lot stronger.

Suddenly I could hear my phone ringing from inside the house. Who on earth was ringing us when we were on our honeymoon? Only our family members had my number. Bella didn't have a phone as she still needed to buy a new phone. Bella and I pulled apart, looking at each in confusion. Bella got off me and we quickly ran back to the house, hand in hand. I grabbed my phone and looked down at it in confusion.

"It's Kate. Why is she ringing me?"

Bella shrugged, unable to give me an answer.

"I don't know but she wouldn't ring without a reason. Answer it baby."

I smiled softly at her before pressing 'accept' on his phone.

"Hello? Kate what's going on?"

I left Bella's side and waited to hear what was wrong. Bella sat down on the bed and just waited. She knew I would tell her what was going on afterwards.

"Edward… the Volturi has your family."

"What? What do you mean? How did it happen?"

I couldn't believe it. What on earth did she mean?

"We went hunting and when we came back, all your family had gone. The house was a mess and there was a sign that a fight had taken place. Demetri appeared and when we demanded what he was doing here and what had happened, he informed us the Volturi knew you were now a vampire and apparently we had disobeyed the Volturi. Your family are their prisoners."

"They can't do this! When did this happen?"

Bella sat up straight, looking like she wanted to hug me. I needed her to hold me. I couldn't believe what had happened.

"We came back from our hunting trip today Edward. Apparently the Volturi took your family just under two days ago. You're right. They can't do this. I'm so sorry Edward."

"Kate I need to talk to Bella. I'll call you back. Bye."

"Okay Edward. I'm so sorry. Bye."

I hung up and sat on the bed, throwing my head into my hands. Bella moved next to me and wrapped her arm around me.

"Edward sweetie what's wrong? What happened?"

I didn't answer straight away as I couldn't speak. Bella stood up and moved in front of me. She moved my arms and wrapped them around her waist as she rested her chin on my head.

"Tell me when you're ready baby."

I just held her tighter to me for a moment until I moved back and pulled Bella into my lap.

"Bella don't panic when I tell you okay. We'll figure this out."

Bella looked scared.

"You're scaring me Edward. I'll try and remain calm."

I nodded, wondering how to tell Bella.

"Kate told me that she and the Denalis went hunting and when they came back, our family were home but there was signs of a fight in the house. She told me Demetri was in their house. They demanded what he was doing there and where was our family. Demetri told her they knew you were a vampire and how the Cullens had disobeyed the Volturi. Bella… the Volturi took our family."
