5. The Meadow

Rating 5/5   Word Count 853   Review this Chapter

I arrived at the meadow before Edward. It was still the same. It was a full moon tonight. The moonlight shone down on the wildflowers and lit up the meadow. The breeze made the trees sway gracefully. The leaves rustled from the breeze, some of them falling upon me.

I was at peace. Then Edward walked slowly out slowly from behind the trees. He walked to where I stood and stopped about an inch away from my feet. He lowered his gaze to my eyes and I was locked in place.

“Bella?” I didn’t respond

“Can you believe the stunt our families pulled tonight?” I just nodded my head. I finally broke his stare. I turned around and walked towards the trees. I sank gracefully to the ground and leaned my back against the back of a tree.

Edward walked over to me and sat next to me. Our arms almost touching.

“Did you read my letters?”

“Yes.” I replied softly.

“And?”

“And… I’m not sure.” I wasn’t ready. I didn’t want to have this conversation.

“Bella I’m sorry. Can you forgive me?”

“Edward you left me… again. How can I? I know why you left, but I highly doubt that was the only reason.”

“What do you mean that wasn’t the only reason? Did you even read those letters? Victoria threatened me. She had an army ready to kill. Bella I had to, don’t you understand?”

“Edward you didn’t have to. You had a choice. You didn’t have to. If you really loved me back then, then you would have told me what was going on. We would have worked it out… made a plan. You could have turned me into a vampire. You didn’t have to do anything!” I got up to my feet swiftly. I turned so my face was about an inch from his.

“If you really did love me, you wouldn’t have just got up and left me. I don’t care if it was about my safety. If you still loved me, you wouldn’t have given up so quickly.” And with that I ran as fast as I could. But because I had started to cry from my little speech it slowed me down.

I couldn’t run any further and I broke down from my sobs. I fell to the cold, hard ground. I cried into my pale glistening hands. I felt slightly warm arms wrap around me and the ground disappear from beneath me.

“Put me down Edward!” I struggled out of his arms and I fell to the ground. I landed on my feet with my vampire gracefulness. It tried to run again, but only got about two feet. He caught my wrist and pulled me against his chest.

As I pulled away he tightened his grip around my wrists.

“BELLA, please I just want to talk to you.” I stopped my struggles, they were useless anyway. Even as a vampire, he was still much stronger than me.

“What? What could you possibly say?”

“Bella I love you. I didn’t think clearly… when I left you. I just did what Victoria asked me. I had to keep you safe. Bella I love you. I can’t believe you think that I don’t.”

He leaned in and kissed me deeply before I could even respond. I melted into it. I didn’t try to stop it. He wrapped his arms around me; releasing my wrists.

Then realization ran through me, I wasn’t ready for this. I pulled back immediately once that thought entered my head. I didn’t want that yet. I just wasn’t ready.

“I’m sorry Edward, I can’t. I’m sorry.” I walked away and the walk turned into a run. He didn’t make any move to catch me this time.

I was near the house, I ran even faster. I swung the door open and didn’t even look at my family. I dashed up the stairs and to my room. I slammed the door and locked it.

I began sobbing. I fell against the door and held my head in my hands. I heard the whispers down stairs.

Elizabeth was coming up stairs. She knocked softly on the door.

“Go away!” I cried.

“Bella, please just let me in. Are you all right?”

“I’m fine. Please just go away!” she knew how stubborn I was and wasn’t going to let her in. She gave up and headed back down the stairs.

Fine, I was no where near fine. The man I loved just told me he loved me and I turned him down. But he couldn’t love me.

I loved him, I knew that deep down. I loved him so much I hated him. But I couldn’t just go back to him. He has to understand my pain. The pain I had to live with for eighteen years.

How could he say that he loved me? He left me twice. I don’t care about my safety. He could have told me. If he loved me we would have worked it out. But he must not have loved me enough.
