When Alice returns to Forks in New Moon she tells Charlie that he should send Bella to a boarding school in England (because Bella failed 12th grade). Bella starts a whole new life in England including a new wardrobe that is to Alice's liking. What if a certain vampire shows up in England? What if What Hurts the Most caused a worldwide sensation? What does a bunny have to do with all of this? "I had been hurt over and over by him. I had accepted countless apologies but this was too much." (Chapter 19) Marvelous banner made by TheRealCullen

By 8:05 I was freaking out.
By 8:10 I was hyperventilating.
By 8:15 I was halfway to Cody’s house.
Cody was very punctual so I couldn’t understand why he was so late. I used the spare key and walked through the kitchen and stopped at the doorway to the living room. There was Cody with another girl. They were kissing like there was no tomorrow. I was so hurt that I decided right then and there to freak him out and catch him red handed.
I texted him:
Where are you?
He stopped kissing whoever it was and read the text. “ I totally forgot! I’m sorry Emily. I have to go. I’ll be back though.”
He got up and headed to the kitchen and almost ran into me until I said: “Hey.”
“Oh…hi Bella. How long have you been standing there?”
“Long enough,” I said coolly. He knew how long. I started to cry.
“We are through you cheater. I gave you SIX MONTHS! Six months of my life. Six months where you never kissed me. Not on the lips or the cheek. I didn’t think about it because I thought that you still needed time to get over you “BFF” girlfriend who dumped you. But instead you go macking on other girls, totally using me to make you look good.” I didn’t know that for sure but I was right. I knew it.
“Goodbye Cody. We are through.”
I ran outside tears streaming down my face and cruised home as fast as I could. I walked through the door to the living room of my dorm and collapsed on the couch. Edward came over and wrapped his cold arms around me. I didn’t push him away. I couldn’t. I didn’t have the strength. I just sat there and cried until I ran out of tears.
“Thank you Edward,” I stated formally as I stood up, “I feel much better now.”
I left, and he didn’t ask a single question for which I was grateful. I didn’t feel like telling my ex-boyfriend that I had just dumped my boyfriend. I went to sleep and had a dreamless, sleepless night.
The next morning I was silent as I got ready for school. I drove my car to Alice’s and as soon as I pulled up, she ran to me at vampire speed and gave me a hug.
“I’m so sorry. I found out at about 8:00. I thought that you guys had already left.”
“Stop Alice. Please. I’m over it.”
“Okay. Are you still up for this afternoon?”
“Yeah. I haven’t seen Angela in forever,” I said laughing. I was in a better mood now.
We made it to school and I completely ignored Cody and his new girlfriend, Emily. In biology I sat in my regular spot and focused on the lesson instead of the new occupant next to my new ex. After class Alice pulled me aside.
“Okay, so we are meeting at the London Eye at 6:00.”
“Okay. See you then.”
I walked to my car only to find a certain bronze-haired vampire leaning against it.
“Can I talk to you? Alone.”
“Sure. I know the perfect spot.” I said surprising myself with my almost immediate answer.
I drove him to a trail about 5 minutes away and led him to a meadow almost identical to the one he had shown me so long ago.
“Bella, I know you just broke up with your boyfriend but I need to tell you something.”
“I don’t deserve you anymore but I need you to know the truth. That day in the forest…I lied to you. I thought that if I left you then you would live a normal human life. I want to ask your forgiveness. If not take me back at least forgive me.” He was about to continue his self-pity speech when I interrupted him.
“Edward, first of all that was the dumbest decision you ever made. Second I do forgive you but you are right. It’s too soon for me to try to decide to take you back. You broke my heart. I was like a corpse for months. The only reason I stayed alive was for Charlie. The only reason I am happy now is because of Alice and Jake, Jake for keeping me together for months, and Alice for sending me here.”
He understood. For the next hour and a half we talked about our past lives. I talked about the “voices” in my head, the cliff-diving (which he had heard about from Alice), and the motorcycles. He talked about trying to track Victoria. My reaction was, “WHAT?!” Also about finally giving up in Brazil.
“We have to go.” said Edward. “Do you mind if I drive you car?”
I could tell that he liked my car because he had a grin plastered on his face the entire ride over there. We arrived at exactly 6:00 pm.
“ANGELA!!!” I screamed like a lunatic as I ran to give her a hug.
“Bella, I’m so glad to see you!”
We started to talk to each other about this and that as Alice came to join us. Then I went to say hi to Ben and Jasper.
“Hi guys,” I exclaimed.
“Lets go shopping! Come on Bella!” shouted a very excited Alice before I could continue.
“Alice,” Angela and I groaned.
“Uh uh uh,” she said, “No complaining. Now let’s go.”
For the next two hours we shopped, mostly for Angela but also for me, and talked. Before we knew it Angela and Ben had to leave and since I was the last human there the rest of us left.
“Bella, are you doing the talent show?” asked Alice as we looked at shoes.
“Yes Alice,” I exclaimed exasperated, “haven’t you heard me practicing every day at your house?”
“Well yeah but I thought that you were just practicing your skills.”
“Does Bella play an instrument?” asked a confused Angela.
“Yes. I play guitar, drums, piano, and some others.” I answered.
“Well, good luck. Ben and I have to go. Bye!”
End of Flashback
“Are you going to do the talent show?” asked Edward on the highway home.
“Alice?” I guessed. How else could he have known about the talent show? He nodded.
“Yes I will be doing it.”
“What are you going to do?”
“That’s for me to know and you to find out, and Alice doesn’t know so you can’t go snooping around in her thoughts.” I had already told her to cover all of her thoughts about my abilities around Edward.
“Okay, I understand.”
We reached the house and I called Alice.
“Alice! I just realized that I need a couple of outfits for the talent show.”
“Okay tell me what you want tomorrow because I’m a little busy right now…”
“Yeah, so, uh, bye.”
“Bye.” I said into the dead receiver.
