After the Eclipse (A Short Story)


A long time ago, I was super into the Twilight series. Eclipse was my favorite book. I loved reading Twilight fan fic and wrote one piece. Here it is. It is from Jacob’s perspective. The context is Bella has joined the Cullens and perhaps has been turned. Jacob continues to hope. (This was written way before before Breaking Dawn came out.)

I don’t know why I still come here. She left me a long time ago, when she became one of them. It is dangerous for me to be here. While I am strong, I am no match for their coven.

Maybe they wouldn’t harm me. I did help save her for them.

The leaves move and I turn my head quickly. It is the wind, as expected, and I scold myself for hoping it would be her instead. Damn hope. For as long as I continue to hope, I will be in this hell I have created for myself.

Darkness is falling but I do not leave. Maybe if I stay still she will come, thinking that I’m not here. Then I would get to see her eyes, brown, deep, questioning. And if our gazes lock, I will not let go. I will not let go. I will keep her.

And that is why I come here.

And maybe that is why she doesn’t come.
