---Bella's POV---

Another boring day in Forks High, all too predictable. After English I met up with my "friends" I guess you could call them. Angela, Jessica, Mike, Eric, and Tyler all waited for me as we walked to the lunch room. I put a fake smile on for the benefit of others when all I wanted to do was curl up in a ball and mope. I had to be strong....for my friends, Jacob, Charlie, and even.......Edward. It hurt to think of him. I changed my thoughts to my friends. I faked a laugh although I had no idea what they were talking about.

I sat down at our table in between Angela and Mike. I saw Jessica smile so I followed her gaze to the permanently vacant table that was...the Cullens. My eyes met with him. I had to have been hallucinating. There was no way that the Edward Cullen the love of my life was sitting right there just feet away. I didn't allow myself to think this way. I was going crazy. I felt myself blush at the fear that someone noticed my difference. I just turned back to Mike.

After lunch I went to Biology where he was sitting at our old table. Definitely a hallucination. I sat down not feeding into my poor hopeless mind.

"Hello Bella"

I was losing it. I was already gone so I may as well look crazy too.

"Hi", I responded feeling totally mental for talking to myself.

He made small talk with me, not once did I meet his gaze. Once the bell rang, I left outside. I met up with Mike who walked me to my truck. I knew that if it were really Edward he would hear Mike's thoughts and be hurt by them.....No I couldn't allow myself to believe that. He left me. He didn't want me. It was his choice. At that point I let go of all control on myself. Mike leaned in to kiss me goodbye just as he usually does just with a bigger smile on his face. I knew it was because Edward was back, and I was with him instead of Edward. I kissed him back and climbed into my truck.

Without thought, I felt tears streaming down my cheeks.

What's wrong with me? Am I crazy? Am I hurting Mike by still having such feelings for Edward? I only got with Mike because everyone thought it would be good for me to date. I never liked Mike in that sense. It was always akward to kiss him. Nothing would ever compare to being with Edward. Nothing.

But there was nothing I could do about that. Edward had moved on, why shouldn't I? Because I care about him. Not a good enough reason. I was lost in thought before I realized I had pulled up in front of my house.

I just walked into my bedroom, under my blankets with a box of tissues and cried until I fell asleep.

No doubt, I had nightmares.
