Notes:
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!!!!!)

Bella’s Point of view:

I walked out of the classroom with Kaylee and Angel. Edward was trailing behind us. He was right behind me. It was really annoying. I was even more mad at him than usual, considering he killed my best friend. I couldn’t let him see it, or he would figure everything out. That was the last thing I wanted. I went into the bathroom; I made my nails longer and “painted” them black. I wanted to look as anti-social as possible. When, I came out, I expected Angel to be waiting for me, as Kaylee would have gone to her next class. But, I didn’t expect Edward to be waiting for me.

“Who’s the stalker now, Edward? I don’t wait for people who hate me to come out of the bathroom.”

“Yes, because I don’t hate you.”

“Well, I hate you, so go away! Leave me alone. I could probably convince Kaylee to kill you, but I don’t want to hurt you family. I am quite taken with them, particularly Alice and Emmett. I could easily be friends with them. Them. Not you. I want you to leave me alone. We are not friends.”

“Whoa, what’s all this about stalkers?” I passed him the note we passed back and forth in Italian class. He started to laugh really hard. “Princess, you are so funny! ‘I want your friendship about as much as I want the Volturi to come after me’.” He quoted. I hit him on the shoulder.

We started to walk to class when I tripped. Both Edward and Angle caught me. I quickly jumped out of Edward’s arms. “Thanks, Angel.”

“What, no thank you for your best friend?” Angel asked me.

“No. I would have rather fallen on my butt into a pit of fire than have him catch me.” Angel laughed again. He really was enjoying this. We continued to class. Edward went to his class, which thankfully, wasn't ours. Angel and I walked in the class and the teacher, Mr. Anderson, who taught history, sat us next to Alice. I was on her right, Angel on her left.

“Hi, Princess, Angel. We haven’t seen you since, two days ago.” Wow, Alice was sarcastic.

“Well, Princess is convinced that Edward is stalking her.” Angel said. Alice’s laugh was like a chorus of miniature bells.

“No, Edward, well, all of us, have a history that was here. Edward’s mate, Bella, lived and died here.”

“Didn’t he leave her?” I interjected.

“Well, yes, but…”

“Wouldn’t that mean that they aren’t mates anymore?”

“Well, yes, but Edward never stopped loving her. He told her he didn’t love her anymore because otherwise, she wouldn’t have let him go. He died when he left her. He was a shell of who he used to be. He was literally curled up in a ball for months until Emmett or Jasper would force him to hunt.

“He almost went to the Volturi when he found out that she had died. I was able to stop him, but it was hard. He is just now starting to be a little more human. You remind him of her so he wants to be your friend. He is taking it hard that you won’t even give him the time of day. He never stopped loving her. If he believed that he had a soul and could go to Heaven, he would have killed himself years ago, just to be with her.”

“Well, until he can be nice to my family, I won’t be nice to him, and even then, I have no intention of being his friend.”

“Princess, calm down. Do you need me to come with you this weekend?”

“For what, Angel?”

“You need to go shopping. It will help you heal from the anger and frustration. I’ll help you carry your bags.”

“Sure, Alice do you want to come? I’ll see if Dylan can come also, he’ll help carry bags.”

“Oh, really! I love to shop! I used to drag Bella shopping all the time! It was so much fun! She hated it but she really needed help on her wardrobe.”

We planned the trip for this Saturday at one of those 24 hour malls. She said she’d have Emmett or somebody else carry her bags, so Dylan didn’t have to come. I didn’t used to like shopping, but now that nobody was spending money on me, it was easier to handle. Besides, I only went when I was really frustrated, like I was now.

The bell rang and I headed of to Math. I remembered coming in here for Trig 106 years ago. I still hated this class. There was only Angel and I in this class, so we’d meet with the others in the cafeteria. I listened to Mrs. Genabell drone on about her stupid class and I thought about what Alice had said. Did he really never stop loving me? My heart surged at the thought. No! I couldn’t do this! I did NOT love him! Maybe I liked him. Maybe, but I didn’t want to. I hated this. My head was telling me no, my heart was telling me GO! But which one did I listen to? That was the hard part. I decided to make a list and compare them.

Go’s:

His dazzling eyes

His crooked smile

The look of love and sadness in his eye when he thinks of Bella

How cold his lips were, pressed against mine

The feel of protection when his arms were wrapped around mine

How my heart would flutter when he whispered, “I love you.”

How perfect the feeling was when we laid side-by-side in the meadow, when the sun would make his perfect, Adonis chest glitter

How he would watch me as I slept

How the sight of him made my heart swell up

How he held me in his arms as we danced at the prom, even though I hated it then

How our hands fit together perfectly, like two lost puzzle pieces that, somehow connect together, as though that was meant to happen

When my fingers would knot in his hair and his hands would be at my waist, pressing us closer together

How he would catch me every time I fell or tripped over something

How he would say things that made me blush, just because he loved my blush

Yes, I loved all of those things about him. Now, I would have to write the No’s.

No’s:

He left me

He ripped my heart into a million pieces, then burned it and took the ashes with him, leaving me heartless and broken

He killed me

He took away my family and best friend

He left me catatonic

He told me he was leaving me because he loved another, he could have just told me he didn’t love me, He didn’t have to rip my heart more by telling me that I was already replaced

He lied to me, even if he didn’t ever love me, or if he doesn’t now, he still lied

I didn’t want to love him, but his presence was making me love him again

The fact that, even if he did lie to me, he still made a huge decision that impacted both of our live a lot

He told me it would be as if he never existed, but he had changed me forever, so he lied there too

I remembered everything about him, but almost nothing of my other life. All I could remember of my life was the parts that he was in. I couldn’t think of anything else, but the pain from the “No’s” list was more than what the “Go’s” list equaled out to. He would have to earn the friendship from Princess before he could see Bella, and right now, Princess had way too much anger to ever be his friend.

The bell rang and I headed off to lunch. I got into the line with the rest of my family and sat down with the Cullens. I made sure to sit next to Alice and Kaylee sat next to me, so Edward couldn’t.

“Emmett, how much do you love you oldest sister?”

“Alice, you are my only sister.”

“Well, even thought she is not here, I still consider Bella my sister. I thought you did too.”

“I do, but she is not here. I miss her so much. Hey, remember how she used to trip over thin air?”

“Yeah, she was so funny.”

“Reminds me of someone else I know.” Said Angel. I glared at him.

“Oh really, who?” Emmett asked.

“Princess. She tripped what, three times this morning?”

“Angel, if you know what is good for you, you will shut-up, now.

“Oh, I’m only messing with you. You are clumsy, though. Admit it. Or I won’t come shopping with you. I’ll make Edward go instead.”

“I am a very, very, very, very, very, very, very clumsy person!” I said quickly.

“Wow. I expected you to hold your tongue for at least a little bit, considering how stubborn you are.” Edward said.

“Well, I refuse to be your friend. I am still stubborn on that. Angel, will we have to go shopping earlier?” I asked, holding my hand out to him. He grabbed it and thought for a second. He let go of my hand.

“It would heal you the best. And doing the thing that was forbidden for us by you to do, will also heal you. That is the only solution at this point. It will take a bit, because of how long you put the forbidden thing off, but that is the only for you to completely heal. Moving away from here and going to there would only work for a while. It would seem to work quickest, but you would be in pain after a few months. With his way, you would be happy until you die.”

Only my family knew what he meant. The forbidden thing, telling the Cullens about my power and who I really am. Moving away from here and to there, was his way of saying, ‘If we move away from the Cullens, it will only heal you partially. You have to tell them. If one of us does it, it would only hurt you more.’

“Alice, is it okay if we go shopping tomorrow after school? I don’t think I can wait. I use shopping to relieve my stress. If you can’t, that’s okay; I’ll go with Angel tomorrow, and again with you on Saturday.”

“No, that’s fine. I was going to get really bored waiting, anyway. Jasper, will you please, please, please come with me?”

“Alice, my dear, I work on Thursdays. Otherwise, I would always come with you.”

“Emmett, you love me, right? I’m your special little sister?”

“Alice, I would love to go with you, but I already have plans with Rose.”

“Fine. Edward! You get to come with me! Don’t tell me you can’t because I saw it in a vision!”

“Fine I’ll come. It will be a good way to spend more time with my new friend, right Princess?”

“You are either deranged, or a moron if you still think we are friends. We are not, I repeat, not friends. I refuse to be your friend. We are not, were never, and will never be friends!” I left the cafeteria and fled into the bathroom. I started shaking with dry sobs.

Kaylee and Chi-chi came in. “Hey, shhhh. Shhhh. It’s okay. It’s okay. Shhhh. You’ll be fine. He is just a jerk-face.”

“Yeah, men are so stupid sometimes. The worst part is, he knows exactly what he is doing. He is doing that on purpose.”

“If you don’t mind me asking,” Said Kaylee, “Why is this bothering you so much? Normally, you just threaten them, even if they are vampires, when they try to be friends with you or hit on you.”

“Well, Edward’s case is not exactly normal.” I said, as Alice walked in the bathroom.

“How is his case not normal?” She asked. Oh, this was going to take some explaining.
