“Come for a walk with me”, I suggested, in an unemotional voice, taking her hand. How am I going to tell her this… I still love her, but it is so different now. I pulled her along towards the east side of the yard, where the forest encroached. I stopped. We were barely on the trail – I could still see her house. I lean against a tree and stared at her.

“Ok, let's talk”, she said.

I took an unnecessary deep breath, filling my lungs with her delicious scent. I hope she could understand…

“Bella, I’m gay.”

She was the one to take a deep breath now. Even though I knew I was crushing her heart, it felt good to finally let that out. It was the only thing I have ever kept from her. I wasn’t sure myself, until this past summer.

“WHAT???!!!” She screamed. I wasn’t prepared for that.

“I know this may seem very sudden Bella, but when I was in Spain, with Emmett, I met someone. His name is Antonio. I always felt that there was something missing in our relationship. But with Antonio, there was this unbelievable connection. It was like I felt finally whole, like I was at long last home. Not to mention the way his long black hair moved while we dance…”

“STOP! I can’t stand this anymore. I expected more from you Edward. I didn’t think that you would stoop that low, as to make up a story like this. You could have just said that you didn’t love me, that you didn’t want to be with me.”

“Bella,” I pleaded, ”Please listen to what I am saying. I would never lie to you. I still love you, you are, and will always be my best friend.”

“Leave.” She said in a low growl.

“I will always love you…in a way. But what happened this last summer made me realize that it’s time for a change. Because I’m…tired of pretending to be something I am not, Bella. I’ve let this go on much too long, and I am sorry for that.” I needed her to understand that it was not something she did. This was not going well.

“I want you to leave and never come back.” She said almost in a whisper. She didn’t even look me in the eyes, but I could sense that tears had started to form.

“If this is what you need Bella, then I will leave. I promise this is will be the last time you will see me. I won’t come back unless you want me to. I won't put you through anything like this again. You can go on with your life without any more interference from me. Goodbye Bella.”

I felt as if my frozen heart was about to shatter into a million pieces. I already miss her, but after all that I have put her through, if she wants me to leave, then I have no choice. I just hope that with time she can understand.
