As I sped down the winding road I knew what lay ahead for me. My home. As the woods thinned out Iknew what I had to face. My family. I’m sure Rosalie had informed them all in her own colourful words of my recent revelations to this human girl. The human girl that she could never be. The human girl thathad been materialised out of my own personal hell. The human girl that was my punishment for being amonster. The human girl who’s delectable scent still lingered with me. The human girl…
thatactually had accepted the fiend beside her for the entire day. Bella who’s touch had not been a mistakeon my ice cold hands. Bella…As I parked in the garage I shot a side glance at the red car next to me. Any happiness from the day hadgone. I had left it on Bella’s doorstep as I drove away only a short while ago. In hope she’d keep it safe,and welcome just as she had today.
I growled to myself.
No. I hope she doesn’t welcome it into her home. For her own good. Shedeserves better than me.
I locked the car and just as I thought everyone, except Alice, was waiting for me. Their thoughts reachedme before I had even walked through the door. The loudest was the string of profanities from Rosalie.Then Jasper’s quiet laughter. My father had a confused sense of relief in his eyes but his thoughts wereworried.I mirrored his worries. About my sanity.
Maybe Emmett’s right.
Maybe I am losing it.
Esme looked like she would have tears of joy if she could. Her thoughts were a buzzing humming song. Adance of happiness and the only words I could catch were
She’s special, son.
‘’Oh crap, common ref’’ Emmett boomed from next to the TV before silently adding;
You started this soyou deal with Rose now.
‘’Did you want to talk, Edward?’’ Carlisle asked me in a tone that would be used on someone who’d justrecently lost his mind. I stared blankly at him, ignoring Rosalie’s glare, trying to concentrate on histhoughts. The same ones he had on the night I had taken him back to Port Angeles to show him those… Ifelt anger seep into me… those brutes. My fury trickled down my arms and to my hands. I clenched theminto fists as if to stop it from leaking further. Causing any more damage. Justifying the fact I was notgood enough for
.I tried to see through the haze and listen again to Carlisle’s thoughts.
Edward, she’s special. Esme thinks so too. Look at the effect she’s having on you.
I loosened my firstsslightly
. The change that we all see in you is absolute. Turning back from this now would only hinder everything you are and everything you have worked to be.
Unexpectedly lost focus on his thoughts andsnapped my head up at Rose. My fury hadn’t completely waned yet and she had just ignited it higher. Igrowled at her unsaid words and her smug smile told me that this is the reaction she had wanted fromher sick thoughts. Thoughts of taking a pure innocent life of a girl who was only a danger to herself. ‘’How typically Rose. You should…’’ My words fell short as I dropped to my knees and cried out ‘’NO! No. Not, Bella, No.’’ Blood soak through her clothes, from her still, now lifeless cold body. Turning whiter. I couldn’t stand tolook. I threw my hands over my eyes but vision still plagued me and I let another cry of agony slip frommy mouth. The pain was unbearable. As if my heart was trying to rip through my chest. Like it had come
