A Blazing Sun by ysar
[ - ]
Summary:

You know those fics where Edward doesn't come back and Bella forgets about him and five seconds later she's in bed with Jacob and none of it makes any damn sense?
Yeah, this isn't one of them.


A Blazing Sun

The first story picks up from the moment in New Moon when Jacob has driven Bella home after the cliff diving incident, right before he catches the scent of Alice. Only in this telling, Alice wasn't looking, so there's no sudden appearance at Bella's house, no Rosalie calling Edward and sending him on a suicidal mission to Volterra, and no reason for Bella to do anything but believe that Edward didn't love her anymore. This is simply a story of what might have happened if everyone stayed mostly in character and Edward's return was delayed. Yes, delayed. Because we all know that he was "this close" to coming back on his own anyhow.  So what would have happened if Bella had tried to move on with her life?  Would she have found happiness with Jacob?

Several one-shot companion stories give us a glimpse at things through the eyes of Charlie, Angela, Jessica, Embry, and the other characters.

Mike & Lauren complicate things, Bella's planning to go to college, Victoria is on the prowl, and imprinting is running rampant.  And that's just the beginning! 
How will Edward react when he finds out what's been going on while he was gone?  And who will Bella choose in the end?

A BELLIE AWARDS NOMINEE!

This story picks up from the moment in New Moon when Jacob has driven Bella home after the cliff diving incident, right before he catches the scent of Alice. Only in this telling, Alice wasn't looking, so there's no sudden appearance at Bella's house, no Rosalie calling Edward and sending him on a suicidal mission to Volterra, and no reason for Bella to do anything but believe that Edward didn't love her anymore.

Because we all know that he was "this close" to coming back on his own anyhow.
So what would have happened if Bella had tried to move on with her life?  Would she have found happiness with Jacob?  And would Edward be too late?

* First in a series of stories that tell of Bella and Jacob during Edward's absence, Bella's start at college, and the Cullens' eventual return.


~I thought of Jacob’s warm arms wrapped around me, his infectious laughter, and his ability to keep me from falling to pieces again… The pain choking my heart relaxed and I could breathe.~

 

~“More than anything,” I whispered, not caring what I'd just agreed to. When it came to Bella, it didn't matter what the question was. I just wanted.~

What kind of friend would Embry be if he just stood by and let Lauren come in between Jake and Bella? (One-shot)

~If you asked me, Jake was lucky Bella even bothered to come to him about it instead of just dumping him. And now he was too scared of stirring up trouble and upsetting Bella to do anything about it.~

~The pack was lucky, too, because dealing with Jake when he and Bella were on the outs was no picnic. But a call to Leah and a trip to Forks High would solve everything.~
