Prologue

Edward POV:

A year ago my life, if you can even call it that, ended. It ended in that forest near the house of my soul mate, my Bella. In that moment, I destroyed my own heart. I left the one thing that mattered most in my existence. My already frozen heart broke after I left her. I had to protect her soul. I would rather ruin my own life than the life of my Bella. Bella was the most important part in my existence here. I had decided that as long as Bella lives, I existed. When she no longer did, I'd go to Italy and beg for death. The love of my existence was the only thing keeping me from going to Volterra. I could not go back to her no matter how much I love her, no matter how important she is to me and my family.

My family and I have not been the same since we left Forks, since we left Bella. Alice, being Bella's best friend, was very affected by our leaving. She never goes shopping like she used to, she hardly smiles, or even talks about Bella. Alice also rarely even uses her visions. Jasper takes it hard because he locks himself and Alice in their room. Jasper is upset because of the horrible emotions in the house. He feels everyone's sadness, pain and anger. The anger is from Alice, Emmett, and Rosalie and it is directed at me. On top of those emotions, Jasper's guilt is there. He still feels enormously guilty for what happened on Bella's eighteenth birthday. Esme dry sobs and does not decorate the house like she used to. Esme always felt like Bella was her daughter. She was missing Bella as much as Carlisle. Carlisle buried himself in work and doesn't really talk much anymore. Emmett does not crack jokes or even really smiles because he felt like Bella was his baby sister. Rosalie was shocking. No one thought Rosalie would even be affected by us leaving Bella. Rosalie does not work on cars anymore or look in the mirror. It was confusing about how much she was affected when she didn't really even know Bella like Alice or I did. Of all of us though, I was the worst. After leaving Bella I locked myself in my room and refused to hunt or do anything. I finally went out of my room and went to track down Victoria. I was able to track her for a few weeks until her trail vanished. I felt terrible with my heartbreak that I had inflicted on both me and Bella. My heart was broken and I could no longer smile without Bella with me.

My family and I have finally decided to come back to Forks. I could not stay away from her any longer and neither could my family. I would get down on my hands and knees if it meant getting Bella back. We had already reached Forks and I was on my way to Bella's house with Alice. Alice and I drove my Volvo with the hope of seeing my beautiful Bella. I drove up the driveway and walked up the sidewalk and knocked on the door. Chief Swan's police cruiser was in the driveway so this would not be the most pleasant encounter. Bella's truck was not in the driveway. The door opened after a minute of waiting and we saw Charlie open the door. His face was filled with anger when he looked at me. His thoughts were of pure hate.

What is he doing here? What could he possibly want after he ruined my daughter's life? He should not be here! He'd better get out of here! It's all his fault! He hurt Bella! Bella is gone because of him, thought Charlie. His last thought struck a chord in me. Did he mean she left or…? My frozen heart ached.

"Chief Swan, I know I have no right to ask this, but where is Bella? We didn't see her truck in the driveway. Is she still here?" Charlie was about to respond but Alice interrupted him.

"Charlie, please. We need to talk to Bella. Is she here?" pleaded Alice. Charlie's face softened when he looked at Alice.

"No. She's not." stated Charlie.

"Then where is she, Charlie? I want to talk to her for a bit." said Alice.

"She…um…Bella…She died about a year ago." whispered Charlie in a broken voice. My aching heart broke into two pieces. I collapsed and sank deeply into the ground and started dry sobbing. My heart ached for Bella, for my Bella, for my love. I would never love anyone as much as I love her. Alice fell to my side placing her arms around me in comfort, sobbing into me. Charlie was watching us but I could care less. I just lost my love, my life, my Bella.
