Chapter one part one: Seeing you again
“You're the echoes of my everything,
You're the emptiness the whole world sings at night.
You're the laziness of afternoon,
You're the reason why I burst and why I bloom
You're the leaky sink of sentiment,
You're the failed attempts I never could forget.
You're the metaphors I can't create to comprehend this curse that I call love”
10 years. It’s been 10 long, hard, years. 10 years since I had last even heard about the Cullen’s. Well not really. As a way of torture, Victoria had brought them up often.
So now I sat in my silver car just staring at the house that contained that very family that broke my heart. I stepped outside the car and into the poring rain. I could feel my hair start to become damp from the rain, but other than that, I felt nothing. Had I still been human, I would have gotten hypothermia because it was so cold. But I wasn’t.
I was crying as usual on my bed. He had left me. I knew I wasn’t enough. Just then something cold wrapped around my waist. Before I could scream, something was clamping my mouth and dragging me out the window. My struggles were useless against the strength of my captor. I then just gave up, deciding that whatever fait had in store for me couldn’t be as bad as living without him and the rest of my adopted family. From the corner of my eye though, I saw wild red hair that made me look behind to see the pitch black eyes of my captor. Victoria.
END FLASH BACK!
The only thing that had saved me from death that night was probably my tendency for giving away too much information. I shudder to think what would have happened had I not let it slip to Victoria that most vampire talents, I guess you could say, did not have any affect on me. This had made Victoria curious, so after hours of torture, right before I was sure I was about to die, she changed me. 10 years I had endured mind-numbing torture from her. Although Victoria had decided to change me, she never forgave the Cullen’s or me for taking away her true love. So she decided to take her anger out on me. After two years of her constant torture, I finally convinced her to let me go to school. I spent two years at high school and 4 years at college. To escape being tortured by Victoria, I spent the rest of my time by doing various jobs. I had at least 3 jobs at a time, trying to make as much money as I could. All through out those past 10 years though I have been waiting for two things. Both of which would happen very soon. The day I would escape Victoria, and the day I would see the Cullen’s again. Never had I thought the second one would happen so soon.
I walked slowly up the porch stairs, still debating on whether or not I should do this. Two things could happen here, one was that they would help me and I would be rid of Victoria for good. The other was that I got the people who I cared about the most hurt. In the end though I knew that no matter what happened, he would still never want me. I have to try! I thought as I stared at the wooden front door. I tapped lightly on the front door and then turned around to stare into the woods. I heard the door open softly, so I turned around. There he was, the man that would always hold my heart. I head him gasp softly and then he breathed out, “Bella!”
Chapter one part two: Seeing you again
“Yeah, so I'm already dead on the inside,
But I can still pretend with my memories and photographs,
I've learned to love the lie.
I'm a mess, I'm a wreck.
I am perfect, and I have learned to accept all my problems and short comings,
Because I am so visceral, yet deeply inept.”
EPOVMore rain. I hated the rain. I also hated the sun. Some might say I’m picky, but my family calls it overly sensitive. It wasn’t really my fault I hated the rain, it just reminded me too much of Forks, which of course reminded me of her. Well, I guess it really was my fault then that I hated the rain. I had left her. The biggest mistake I will ever make in my existence. It had been 10 years since I last heard of her. But her face was always with me, always smiling warmly at me whenever I closed my eyes. She would be 28 this coming September. I also hated September. That month always reminded me of her. Of me leaving her. Just then a gentle knock of the front door pulled me out of the thoughts that always made me sob tearless tears. “I’ll get it,” I said calmly, knowing that my family would hear it. I opened the door to see the back of a perfectly shaped woman. I tried entering her thoughts but found that that was blocked from me. I stared at her as my curiosity got the better of me. Her hair was damp, curly, and in a high ponytail. She had on what looked like a designer red trench coat that went to about mid thigh. She had on skinny jeans and white ballet flats. She slowly turned towards me. She was the most beautiful thing that I had ever seen in my entire existence. She was my Bella. I gasped at her beauty and the realization of what had happened to her. “Bella!” I breathed her name. She just stared into my eyes with her own beautiful brown ones. Hmm, how come her eyes are still the same? I noticed her mouth open half way, as if wanting to say something but not being able to. She exhaled a breath through her perfect mouth. Suddenly her heavenly scent that I had missed for the past 10 years, hit me full on like a wrecking ball. Although this time, the desire to drain her dry and take her blood never came. I just stared at her in wonder for what seemed like forever. Suddenly, Alice was behind me with Jasper, “Edward, who is it?” I reluctantly turned away from Bella to glance at Alice. As soon as I turned towards her, Alice had seen Bella and was pushing me away from the door and threw her hands around Bella’s neck and bringing her into a hug, that had she still been human, would have probably killed her.
