I mean, is the story that horrid? Are all of you nice reviewers lying to me? Or do you just not want to take 5 seconds to tell me about my story.

But all of my current efforts to re-focus go out to the peeps who are tryin to get me re-motivated. Thanks guys! I love you!I <3 My READERS!!!!!
So what happens when Bella meets Edward again and after 105 years, all her sadness has had time to boil and turn into anger? I guess we'll find out! Okay, beloved readers and reviewers, this is what is called a FANfiction. Obviousally, besides the fact that I can't spell, that means that I am not the super amazing-a-licious, fantabulous, Stephenie Meyer. That means that I don't own Twilight or any Twilight related stuffs...sadly....I wish I owned Edward! Who doesn't? (Besides Team Jacob scum!!!!!)

Edward’s point of view:
I ran over to her house and climbed up to the window. I sat in a tree and waited as she listened to her music. It was a band that I didn’t recognize. She seemed to be letting the music just pump through her head in order to clear it. She listened to four songs before she finally said, “I know you are out there, you might as well come in.” I climbed in the window.
“When did you know I was there?”
“When you first came by. I listened to four songs waiting for you to leave. When you didn’t, I figured you must be here for something, unless you are a stalker, which if you are, I wouldn’t want you to think you can come when you want and I won’t know.”
“Well, I came here because your family was invited over to our house and everybody was present except you.”
“So. Your point, Mr. Cullen?”
“My point is my question: why were you not there?”
“Angel did not explain my absence?” he was going to be punished when he came back.
“He did, but I called his bluff. So then he told me it was none of my business. So, I came here to find the reason.”
“If he told you it wasn’t your business, don’t you think there was a reason? What if I didn’t want you to know the real reason? What if my real reason could possibly offend you, therefore, for the sake of us continuing to be civil towards one another, I chose not to give the reason?”
“How could the real reason be that horrible?”
“Easy, I didn’t want to come tonight, because I…Because I hate you, and your entire family. My family went over to your family tonight as a sort of kind of good-bye. We are leaving tomorrow evening.”
“You are moving because of me?”
“Oh, don’t flatter yourself. We are moving partly because of your family, but mostly because I want to go to my hometown. I have missed it so much.”
“Oh, you moving because of me would not be flattering in the least! And, we will move, there is no need for you to move. We also have another small-town we can go to. You stay, we will go. We have been here too long anyway. Sorry to trouble you Ms. Taylor. I’ll be going now.”
I jumped out her window and ran straight up to my room. The Taylor’s were still here, but I didn’t care. I prayed anyway.
“Bella. My love. Are you listening? Do you remember that new girl I told you about? The leader of the new coven, Princess? Yes, it is official; she hates me, and my family. Well, what would have been our family. I asked he tonight and she said she hated me. I don’t know what I should do. I told her we were moving away. I think we will go back to our mansion in forks. I just want to visit my meadow. No, our meadow.
Oh, Bella! How I miss you! Did you know that if I hadn’t been such an idiot, you would have been murdered by that Victoria? Remember, James’ mate, Victoria? Yes she is also a part of this new coven. I know you have heard this a million times, but I am so sorry. I left for your own good. I thought you should live a normal life without vampires and it would make you safer, happier. Instead, it brought about your brutal murder. I am so sorry, my love. If vampires could get into Heaven, I would have gone to the Volturi long ago, just so we could be together again. But, I, a monster could never get into Heaven with you, an angel. I could never do that to my family just so I would end up in Hell. No, that would be worse that this Hell. I just hope you have forgiven me.
This new girl, Princess, she reminds me of you sometimes. I can’t read her mind; she even put a block on her family’s minds when she learned I could read minds. Now, Alice can’t even see into their future! She seems stubborn and she has a quick temper. Her face is expressive, just like yours, and also, just like you, her eyes show her thoughts. They work like a mood ring. All the different colors mean something else. Her eyes look like they used to be deep but after something traumatic happened, they shut off the world. I miss you so much, my love. Someday, we will be together again, I promise. I love you with everything I have in me. I miss you so much. I will talk to you later, my love.”
I went back down stairs to see my family and the Taylor’s still chatting. Angel looked up to me.
“What did she say?”
“That it was none of my business.” I casually lied.
“Were moving?” Alice asked. I knew she would see it in a vision.
“Yes, we are.”
“Edward, would you like to explain?” Carlisle would understand after I explained the situation to him.
“Later.” He only nodded.
“Edward, who was Bella?” Kaylee asked me quietly. My family tensed up. I looked to Jasper. He calmed everybody down.
“Bella was a girl I met in a past life of mine. She was my soul mate. She was a human and I had no intention of changing her into a vampire. I believe that we are damned creatures and I could not have damned my angel. On her 18th birthday, we threw a party despite her protests. She was extremely accident-prone and she got a paper cut. Well, blood in a house full of vampires doesn’t work out too well.”
Jasper cut in the story. “She was bleeding, and I attacked her. Edward pushed her out of the way, but she landed on glass that shattered when she crashed into it. Emmett and Rosalie had to take me outside to restrain me. I am ashamed of what I did and if I hadn’t done it, Bella would be with us now.”
“I wasn't going to say that part but, yes, that is how it happened. Bella was the most loving, forgiving, caring and brave person ever. She was convinced it was all her fault and felt horrid when she learned that Jasper blamed himself. I thought about it, and for her safety, I left. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I had to lie to her and tell her I didn’t love her anymore. If I told her I thought I wasn’t safe, she would have told me I was being stupid and I wouldn’t have been able to leave. As it turns out, leaving was the stupidest thing I’ve ever done in my life. It led to her murder.” I glared at Victoria.
“She begged for murder! I only wanted to kill her to get revenge on you for killing James! When I learned she was worthless to you, I gave up on the idea and started to comfort her. She begged me for death. She said she couldn’t kill herself and her werewolf friend, Jacob, wouldn’t do it for her. I was still mad at you and so, my anger and her pleads combined turned into a murder that looked like a suicide.”
“You still killed her!”
“Only because you did first!” She was right, I had killed my Bella. I had seen it in Alice’s visions. Bella was a shell of what she had been before I left. My leaving her hadn’t worked out too well for either of us. I was going to return and beg for her to find the power to forgive me in her heart, but then, I had gone to her funeral instead.
“You are right. I am sorry. If anyone needs me, I’ll be in my room.” I started to pack my things. I heard the Taylor’s leave. I finished packing within one hour. I heard everyone else packing as well. There was a knock on my door.
“Come in, Alice.”
“Edward, where do you think we should move? I saw New York, Italy, Chicago or Forks.”
“I am going back to Forks. I want to see the meadow again. It was her favorite place.”
“Why are we moving?” I told her the entire story. I knew everyone else heard it too.
“Well, I still think you should have tried to make friends with them instead of attacking her family. Yes, I was angry at Victoria too, but, I saw the truth of it in her eyes and Jasper could tell she was telling the truth also. I miss her too, and I know you hate to hear it, but, you killed her first. I tried to warn you, but you wouldn’t listen before, so you have to deal with it now. Are you sure going back won’t hurt you more?”
She left without another word. She was right, it would hurt more, but, I deserved the pain. All of it. “Stop being such a masochist, Edward.” Bella’s words from her party rang clearly through my head. No, I would go, even if it killed me.
