Summary: Desperate and alone, Bella has climbed the highest structure in Forks: the water tower. The small town Forks Fire Department sends Edward, the new guy, up to talk her down.
Edward looked at the darkening grey sky. “We better get her off there soon. That metal’s going to be slippery when it rains.”
“Well, I tried talking her down, but she’s not moving,” Mike said, crossing his arms.
Edward looked up the girl. “Mind if I take a stab at it?”
Mike took a step backward and gestured toward the ladder. “Be my guest.”
Edward patted his pockets. “Got a radio?”
Mike glanced at the pieces on the ground, but Ben stepped forward. “Use mine.”
Edward tucked it into the back of his waistband. “Thanks.” He turned his baseball cap backwards, and reaching for the ladder said, “Wish me luck.”
“Good luck,” the others chorused as they watched him begin to climb.
“Poor bastard doesn’t stand a chance,” Mike muttered under his breath.
