I’m Bella Swan. It’s my birthday today. I’m 14 years old. Here is my life—my parents got divorced when I was 6 months old and I lived with my mother in Phoenix. I have a boyfriend named Edward Cullen and we were together since we were 13, (our parents said that it was a good age to date) but we’ve loved each other since we were born. Literally. Esme, his mother and Renee, my mother were best friends growing up and they conveniently lived next door to each other. They got pregnant around the same time and gave birth on the same day.
The weirder part is that a lot of people were going into labor that night too so Renee and Esme even had to share a delivery room! Edward and I saw each other everyday and learned everything together-potty train, self feed, swim, love.
Yes, I knew I loved him since I was eight but I think I loved him even before that. I told him and he was planning on telling me the same day that he loved me too. He always stared at me when he thought I wasn’t looking. His family, Carlisle (father), Esme (mother), Alice and Rosalie (sisters), and Jasper and Emmett (brothers) all loved me and I loved them too. They are the nicest and most generous people I ever knew.
During the party that Alice and Rosalie threw for me, they all had preoccupied faces. I took Edward’s hand and took him into my room. “What’s wrong?” I asked. “Nothing.” He replied. “Don’t tell me nothing! For some reason I feel like you’re going to t-tell m-me t-th-that you w-want t-t-to b-br-bre-” He pulled me close to him and he kissed me.
I hadn’t realized that I was crying until he kissed away my tears. “Don’t talk. Let’s stay like this a little longer.” He said in his soothing, velvet voice. We held each other like that for almost ten minutes. Alice came to find us and said, “Everyone is looking for the birthday girl! It’s time to cut the cake!”
I’m Edward Cullen. I’m 14 and have known the girl of my dreams since we were born in the same delivery room. It was fate.
Every time I look at her, I think I’m so lucky. What did I do to deserve such a beautiful angel like her? Every time I think about her, I end up staring at her beautiful chestnut eyes and mahogany hair. I love her, but she deserves more than me.
One day, I am planning to ask her to marry me. But I have dreadful news that will probably hold off my dream. My love-even though she doesn’t know it yet-and I have to be separated.
My father, Carlisle is a traveling doctor, so where ever they needed him, we would have to move. We were all surprised that we stayed in Phoenix this long.
We are moving to Washington, somewhere in the Olympic Peninsula. I have to tell her. I have to tell her. I will sneak into her room and tell her tonight.
After the party, around midnight, I heard a knock. Edward’s knock. I opened my window and he climbed in. he looked upset. “Edward, what’s wrong? Tell me, or I could just call Alice and-” “No Bella. Don’t. I’ll tell you. Bella I am moving.” I sat on my bed like a statue. I couldn’t even feel my heart beat. “Bella?” “When…” I asked in the faintest whisper. “Tomorrow.” Then everything went black.
Once I said tomorrow, she stared at me for about a second and then crumpled to the floor. I saw a tear escape her eyes. I hated myself and it would be better if she did too. Renee heard the thud so had about 3 seconds to escape. I jumped out of her window and ran as far as I could before my lungs protested, screaming for air. Then I turned around and ran back to my house. “How did she take it?” I looked at Alice and she saw the pained expression on my face. She pulled me in an embrace and I did back. “She…crumpled…..to the………floor!” My poor angel looked like she died. I needed air. When I walked outside, I found myself outside of Bella’s house. I could hear everything. “Bella? Oh, good you’re awake. Another minute and I would have called an ambulance…” “He’s leaving.” “Who?” “EDWARD!” “To where honey?” “I don’t know. I have to find him!” then I heard her run down the steps and towards the door. I was frozen in place by their conversation.
When Bella opened the door, I took an involuntary step back and then she started towards me. I ran away into the woods. She shouldn’t see me like this, all red and puffy.
That is when I heard a noise that sounded like a tree snapping. I saw a fiery red, something, pass by in an instant. A shape came closer towards me. I realized that it was a woman. “Hello.” She said. “I’m Victoria, not that you really need to know. I am so sorry that I have to end your life. You are a very attractive young man.” “What do you mean by end my life?” She snickered and was next to me in a second. She suddenly felt uncomfortable as she brushed her lips against my neck, as if she kissed me. When she removed her form from me, I felt a sharp burning pain. I screamed in horror and pain. She licked her lips while saying, “Mmm… you taste better than you smell.” Then I saw some blood drool down her jaw. That is when I realized that bit me and drank my blood. DRANK MY BLOOD?! What good-souled human would do that? While I was loosing consciousness, I heard her laugh; her hair being blown in the wind, and all I could think about was my crying angel. Beautiful angels like her shouldn’t cry.
