19. Failing Future

Just like every day, for almost two months in a row, I sat on the side of my bed, waiting. For what? I had no clue. Everyone had been restless and quite zombielike since we left. Even Carlisle didn’t feel like working anymore. I sighed deeply. Within a second my restless peace would be disturbed. I was right off course.
“Hey, are you going out hunting with us? you look pale.” Kate joked, standing at the door. a small smile tugged at my lips at the ironical joke – we always looked pale no matter what we’d do. 
“I’m sorry – I don’t feel like going now. Maybe tomorrow.” I answered, trying to not hurt her feelings. I saw her nod via the corner of my eye and close the door. 
The Denali’s did what they could, trying to cheer us up. I was grateful for their trying but did not want it. 
I missed her. Maybe a tad too much. Sure, I had Jasper, my husband but Melody was my best friend. We’d promised to stay best friends forever, literally, but my selfish brother had to tear that apart. And why, I still didn’t get – he was being unreasonable, saying that it was for their safety and such. We all knew we were dangerous, but since the attack with James, Laurent and Victoria, Bella and Melody actually needed us for their safety. 
And I knew Melody might be able to fight them, but I did not know how much she was capable off. I questioned Carlisle once, secretly when the others had left to hunt on a late night. He unwillingly admitted he knew what she was, but he wouldn’t tell me. it pissed me off to be honest, but Carlisle only respected my best friend’s wish. 
My best friend of whom I had no clue how she was, where she was and if she was even alive still. The last thought made me terribly uneasy, even for a vampire. 
I was done of sitting for so long and left the bedroom, going downstairs at my natural speed. I saw Esmé, trying to arrange a bouquet of flowers – freesia’s and red roses. When she noticed me, she smiled sadly.
“Hey mom…” I said, sounding miserable from every angle. Esmé winces at me calling her mom. It made her think of Melody and Bella, whom she saw as her daughters, as part of the family. The separation had destroyed us all. Gone were my enthusiastic mannerisms about fashion, Rose’s passion for cars, Emmett’s way too funny jokes. Thrown away was Carlisle’s desire to heal people, Esmé’s love for cooking and Jasper’s way of comforting other’s. 
And then Edward? 

Edward was an asshole. Nothing. And even though he acted like he did not care, it was horrifying to be around him. Ifhe was here, which had only been twice. 
When he left us quickly after we were settled in here, he stayed away for more than a month. With could not reach him or guess where he was. We’d could only try that perhaps he was as far away from us, Bella and Melody as possible. He was drowning in his own misery. 
“I miss him so much…” I looked up from the counter where I was casually leaning against, seeing Esmé’s distressed expression. 
“I know. But I miss Melody more.” I replied, maybe more harsh than I’d intended. 
“You don’t like Bella do you?” she questioned, frowning. I shrugged.
“It’s that I especially don’t like her, but more how she reacts. Sometimes I wondered if she was even in love with Edward and if his fight for her was even worth it.” I stated, thinking back at how she sometimes would act weird, like not wanting to kiss him or push him away. and the next minute she’d be all over him, wanting more than just a chaste kiss. 
“It’s Bella’s way of reacting to things,” Carlisle piped up, standing next to me very suddenly. 
After a while of silence Esmé sighed, ”I wonder…if they really went on with their lives. Without us. As if we do not exist at all…” she mused sadly. Carlisle threw his arm around her shoulder, holder sideways to his chest. 
“I don’t kn – “ I wanted to reply but when an image, so terrifyingly disturbing clouded my mind, my voice hitched in my throat. 
It was Melody. And she screaming very harsh, as if someone tore a knife through her torso. Her head was thrown back, the muscles at her temples strained as tears lay on her cheeks. 

It stopped just as fast as it started. 

“Alice? What have you seen?” Carlisle stands next to me with wide yes of curiosity. I shake my head. 
“Is there something wrong with the girls?” Esmé’s voice is higher and scared as she slaps her hands in front of her mouth. 
“No Esmé,” I said, picking up her vase with flowers to do something so she wouldn’t see my lies through my eyes, “Nothing bad has happened.” 
Jasper came running inside, seeing my alarmed face. He was alert in an instant, knowing I was lying. But I don’t see him anymore when images of the Cliffs on La Push beach blur my sight. 

Bella, running, jumps down, right of the high cliff. Melody is on her heels, ‘Bella NO!’ she screams before following her down into the water. The dangerous wild outrageous waters during a storm. Bella loses breath, sinks. Melody struggles. 
And then it stops. 
Everything just stops. Blackness. End. Nothing. 

No future.

“Alice!? What’s have you seen? What’s wrong?!” Jasper yells, standing in front of my frightened face. I was devastated, pained and revolted by myself for the First time in years. 
No future, kept ringing in my head over and over again.
“Oh my God this is our fault! What have we done!?”
