Chapter 3: The Return
It was a gloomy, rainy day in Forks. I arrived at the bus station with my two bags. As I stepped off the bus I shrugged into my pink sweater and zipped it up around my neck. The bottoms of my jeans were damp from dragging behind me in muddy puddles. I looked around and a sudden creepy sensation began to overwhelm me. I felt the butterflies in my stomach return as the hole in my chest threatened to explode. Hold up! I reminded myself that I was no longer going to wallow in self pity. I was wrong to have wasted months agonizing over him. I knew my Edward. He loved me. I was somebody. I was worth it. And I was going to find him and make him explain why he chose to leave me and why he proceeded to hurt me in the fashion that he had.

I took a cab to the old home. I paid the driver and ran inside after using the hide-a-key. The house hadn't changed a bit. Charlie said that he was going to start renting out however at this point it still held all of our things. My collection of pictures through the years still sat on the wall demonstrating how I have changed from grade 1 and on. I stumbled up the stairs and headed towards my room.

I dug around in old jeans for the keys to my truck. As I picked up the last pair of jeans off of the floor, my fingers caught a splinter sticking up from the wood going against the grain. I bent over and pulled at it until the stick came up along with part of the board. Under the floor lied a cd covered in dust along with an envelope. My heart dropped to my knees and my face turned blue as I attempted to gasp for air.
My cd! My pictures. The tickets. Why would Edward take them and then leave them here? Had he been back? Had they always been here? What did this mean?
There were so many questions. He had left a little evidence of him behind. He had obviously done this intentionally.
But, why!!!!? He had told me that he no longer wanted me. This was not true. Edward, what have you done?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I skipped down the stairs and ran outside to my truck. I jumped as the engine roared to life. I had been startled back to reality. I had spent 5 months completely oblivious to the world, sulking in my own nightmare. I had squeezed lemon juice into all of my wounds. Edward would answer my unresolved issues.
What had he done? Why had he left me to wither and die?
I arrived at the Cullen home and parked my vehicle. I circled around the back of the house and tried to open the back door. It was locked. I looked around for a sharp, heavy object and laid my eyes on a hand-sized rock. Perfect. I picked it up and busted the window open. I jabbed my hand in and unlocked the door from the inside. I froze as the door swung open. That smell. Oh, how I had missed their scent. I made a beeline for Edward's room. I was astonished to see all of the Cullen furniture still there. All the fancy sheets strewn over them had simply whited it out. As I dashed up the stairs I caught sight of the piano out of the corner of my eye and cringed at the stench of loneliness that emitted from it. I had finally made it into Edward's room. I walked in and my heart stuttered as his aroma wafted into my nose. This scent was stronger than the rest.
He had been here recently. I looked around and noticed select CDs missing from his library. I walked over to his desk and found some stationary and began to write.

Dear Edward,
The last few months without you were the most agonizing type of pain that a person can endure. Why you left me I still can't fathom the reason. But one thing is for sure. I have, do and will always love you. How dare you leave me! I know that you feel the same way about me. Well I am here to say that I am back. I will not stop until I find you.
I want answers! If you really don't want me then you will tell me so to my face; and not have me guess that this is the future you would like for us. What we had,meant something to me. And I believe that deep down inside it meant something to you as well. I will be at our meadow. A clue as to where I will be as I look for you can be found there. Don't be a coward, Edward
Be Safe my love.

Bella
