Twilight Really Reimagined @grumpaydog
Chapter 3

Hey guys. Here I go again. Thank you again for your kind words and know that your reviews always brighten my day. I'm very sorry that I'm a few weeks late. My laptop broke down and I'm in the middle of exams, so I couldn't finish the chapter until now.

Anyway a guest pointed out in his/her review that it doesn't make any sense that Bella would feel the pull towards Jane more deeply than vice versa and I wanted to comment on that real quick: You're absolutely right. It doesn't make any sense and it's not what I meant to express at all (I blame this on my lack of writing experience). So to clear things up: The reason why Bella seems more affected by the bond is that she unlike Jane actually accepted it. It became part of her and her bond to Jane only strengthened when she discovered the truth about vampires and seeing Jasper and Alice and the other couples together made her realize that that could be her and Jane. Jane on the other hand is an over 1,000 years old vampire. She thinks she's seen and felt everything there is plus she never had any sort of romantic feeling to compare it to. She doesn't want a mate. She doesn't want to feel dependent on anyone and she especially doesn't want to have a human mate. (We all know she's not too fond of humans) But she DOES feel the bond and she has visions of Bella. Her instincts just tell her to ignore it and continue on like she has for over 1,000 years. And that is what I really wanted to show you with the last chapter. I realize now that I could've written that in a clearer way and I do apologize for that. I hope I cleared that up a bit.

Enjoy the next chapter nonetheless and again, I'm really sorry for the delay.

~Bella's POV~

Suddenly there's a crash and we can see smoke coming out of the windows.

I try to move closer but both Alice and Jasper hold me back.

"Wait! We have to get inside! We have to help her!" I struggle against their hold, everything inside me is screaming to run inside the warehouse and try to find her.

I can't stand the thought of losing her… of her dying… Tears rush down my face but Alice and Jasper carry me away.

Those Mexican people don't even look our way as they both carry me down the street – thankfully it's gotten dark at least- and after they turn into an empty alley they both switch to vampire speed and drag me out of the inner city away from my love.

After a while they let me down. Houses are only few and far apart here and no one is likely to see or hear us.

"Are you out of your freaking minds? How could you just run away? And drag me with you?"

My knees buckle. Still crying I sink onto the ground and bury my face in my hands.

"What if she's gone?" Alice kneels in front of me placing a cold hand on my shoulder.

"Bella, you've never even talked to that girl. I know you feel strongly about her but she's a vampire, honey. She made it out there just fine, I promise."

My tears slowly subside and I look up into Alice's eyes searching for a sign that she's lying to me. "Will you help me find her?"

She hesitates clearly conflicted. Finally she nods slowly.

"I guess, you'll just kill yourself unsupervised." I fling myself into her arms and hug her tight.

I hear a low confused hiss from Jasper. "What are you doing, Alice? You know, we agreed that…" She interrupts him. "Can't you see that she's serious? Are you really able to deny her her happiness?"

She moves me away from her and helps me get up. "Now, let's get you back, okay? I think that was quite enough excitement for today."

We make our way back towards the hotel. At least Jessica and Angela aren't there to nag about boys or fashion.

The people who are there though are the rest of the Cullen family members.

"Missed us, Bells?" I try to give Emmett a tired smile but by the looks of it fail miserably. He steps close and hugs me and even Rosalie gives me a pat on the back for good measure.

"Let's enjoy these last few days, right?" Edward tries to lighten the mood.

I ignore him and look at Alice instead.

"I'll keep an eye out, okay? If she's anywhere near you'll be the first to know. I promise you, Bella."

Satisfied with the answer I try to suppress the longing that's returned to me after we left the burning warehouse.

~A few days later, the last day of the excursion~

"Are you sure you haven't forgotten anything, kids? We won't be going back if any of you left something behind!"

We're standing at the airport waiting to board our flight. I don't know why our teacher would remind us now to check if we forgot something and not back at the hotel but I'm sure as hell not going to ask about that out loud.

The last few days have been uneventful. Alice kept her promise and went looking for her after the fire incident. She even picked up her trail at some point but lost it after a few miles out of the city.

The others are still very hesitant to join us in our hunt and Edward keeps insisting that I should go out with him and do something fun and that that might distract me from my "silly fantasies" but I'm not really in the mood when I'm still not entirely sure that she made it out of that building alive. I'm ashamed to admit it but I was actually glad when he and the others said their goodbyes yesterday with a promise to properly catch up once I make it back from our trip with the other students.

Anyway Alice promised me that we'll fly back to Italy after we graduate and that is something I really look forward to.

I feel like there's finally something going well in my life.

"We'll meet up here in half an hour, guys! Be sure to be back by then but now feel free to buy yourself something to eat and drink or wrap up any last minute business you might have here."

Ignoring my other classmates I make my way towards the toilets. I'm not really in the mood for mindless chatter or greasy pizza while waiting to board.

Still thinking about what I should do in my last few minutes in Mexico I don't even register the sudden reappearance of this invisible force I felt a few days ago as something strange or out of the ordinary. It just seems so natural to follow wherever my body tells me to go but then it suddenly clicks and the realization rips me out of my thoughts.

She's somewhere close.

I begin to mindlessly run around the airport trying to decide if the pull gets any stronger or actually weakens if I run in one and then the other direction.

The only thing I do succeed in is getting lost though. There is no sign of the others and I don't know how to get back to our meeting point.

I sigh and sink down on a bench. Well, that could've gone better.

Do I really give up here? I'm so close. I know I am. I can feel her.

I jump back on my feet and make my way towards the location I first felt the pull.

Still looking left and right and even trying to spot her above me I don't notice running into someone until my body hits the floor with something or rather someone weighing me down.

The first thing I see when I open my eyes is blonde hair and the first thing I smell makes me close my eyes again and take a deep breath.

The pull is gone. There is no longing, no feeling of incompleteness. Only warmth and comfort and that scent surround me.

I open my eyes again and stare into crimson ones.

~Jane's POV~

Her embrace warms my cold heart. If there is a place called heaven somewhere it's sure to be in her arms. The familiar feeling of her lips against mine makes me sigh in contentment.

I don't know how I could live for over a thousand years without knowing or longing for this completeness.

"Jane! Are you sure you're all right?" My brother Alec shoots me a concerned glance.

"Maybe she's actually about to die from old age." Demetri jokes and I send him down to the floor in pain moments later.

"Let's just get into the plane and leave this place. I'm more than ready to go home." While getting out of the car that's directly parked next to the Volturis' private plane I scan the area.

Because we are at a secluded space away from humans there's not much to look at.

Alec's says something but I can't seem to focus. Suddenly there's this strange feeling coming back to me. The one I also felt when we left the burning warehouse.

What the hell is this?

I take a step back away from the plane and towards the public terminals.

A deep longing rolls through my body. There is a force pulling me farther and farther away from the other guards.

Alec grabs my arm. "What is up with you, sister? Where are you going?"

I shake his hand off and turn around. Trying to clear my head I take a deep breath. Suddenly brown eyes enter my memory. My normally empty feeling body warms and tingles all over. Another step.

"I…" I try to come up with an excuse. "There's something I've got to do." Alec raises an eyebrow. "Like what, Jane?"

Demetri starts to chuckle in the background. I'm about the send him down to the floor but then he actually proves to be my saving grace.

"Haven't eaten enough, huh? Can't say I don't understand you. I have half a mind to bring a little snack with me as well." He grins evilly and shows his teeth.

I only roll my eyes but nod anyways.

"Yes, that's right. We have a long flight ahead of us."

"Five minutes ago you told us that the plane can't take of soon enough."

I shoot a glare in Alec's direction. "Well NOW I'm hungry. We can leave as soon as I am back."

I race across the airfield towards the terminals. The feeling keeps on getting stronger and stronger. I growl lowly. What the hell is this? Why can't I turn around and go back to Volterra? Another picture of those brown eyes flashes before my eyes.

I reach the terminal keeping in the shadows so nobody can see me.

How am I going to get inside without anyone noticing me? Then again this is a big city. Nobody would probably care about my pale skin and red eyes, at least not to the point that'd include panicking and screaming.

My whole body aches. I can't hold out any longer. I just have to get inside and find whatever is making me feel that way.

I race inside and frantically look around. The pull is stronger now but I still can't make out its source. I take another deep breath and a delicious scent suddenly fills my entire being. Trying to savour the sweet aroma I follow its trail with quick strides.

Having to make my way through waves and waves of humans I can't help but grumble lowly. I don't even know what I'm doing here. I should just head back to Demetri and my brother and forget about this whole thing but something stops me.
I know I'll regret it if I don't follow that scent now.

The feeling that pulls me forward keeps on getting stronger and stronger but I just can't seem to make out its source.

While looking around I suddenly spot Alec standing in a dark corner watching me worriedly.

I know he wants to ask me what's wrong but I just shake my head softly and continue on my path still looking at him, willing him to understand even if I can't understand it myself.

Then something crashes into me.

The amazing scent suddenly engulfs me and is all I can think about. Even though the weight of another person could normally never bother me I'm so caught off guard by that strange feeling in my chest that the other person and I tumble to the ground.

I open my eyes and stare right into familiar dark brown ones. I recognize her instantly for she has been in my mind for the last three years.

Before I can think about it any further I stand up, grab her hand and drag her towards the exit. I shake my head at myself. What am I going to do with that human? I should just let her go back to wherever she came from but I know deep down that I couldn't just let her go a second time. The effect she has on me is puzzling but I won't grant her anymore power over me than that weak human already has.

I look back at her trying to understand what makes her so special but instead I can't focus on anything but her lovely features: her dark brown eyes and hair that have haunted me for the last three years.

Suddenly she nuzzles closer to me. My body goes completely rigid and my nostrils flare. Her scent is just… everywhere.

I want to turn around and bite her, turn her but at the same time I want to carry the girl away from all possible harm that could come to her.

"Your name?" I sound harsher than I've intended but there's no use taking these words back now.

"Bella." She pauses a small moment. "Isabella Swan. What's your name?"

Isabella. I repeat the name over and over in my head. Every last ounce of resistance seems to have vanished from my body by this point.

As we make our way towards the exit we drift closer together.

"It's Jane."
