It's a Love Story

How come Romeo's not following Juliet?

(Bella's POV.)

I had my bags and boxes packed into my truck. It was parked in front of the Cullen's as i rung the door bell. Soon someone answered the door.

"Bella? What are you doing here?" Asked Tanya, trying to hide her anger and sadness.

"I'm here to talk to Alice, Rose, Emmet, and Jasper. Jacob too if he's here."

"He's upstairs with Emmet and Jasper playing videos games. Come in." She widened the door enough so i could step inside.

"I won't be here long, i just have to tell them something before i leave."

"You're leaving?" She asked, surprised. I smiled sadly at her.

"Yeah, i decided not to meddle with you guys anymore. I know i've probably wrecked your relationship, so i want to apologize. I need a break from Forks so i'm leaving for a bit, not sure exactly how long yet."

"But Bella...."

"No, it's ok. I sort of need a break from all the rain and greenery." I laughed slightly before making my way to the stairs.

"I'll talk to you soon. Congratulations by the way." I walked upstairs and stopped when i heard cheers coming from one room. Must be where the boys are. I opened the door and stepped inside. Sure enough they were sitting on the floor, playing the x box.

"You guys, i need to talk to you all, so can you pause the game real quick." I asked.

"Sure Bells." Jacob said. He pressed the start button and turned to me.

"I need to go get the girls first though." They nodded and waited as i lef thte room. I walked into Alice's room and asked them to follow me.

"Sure Bella." Rose said. We walked back to where the guys were and they sat down. I went to stand in front of them and took a deep breath.

"I'm leaving." I said quickly. They stared at me a bit before they bombarded me with questions.

"Leaving to where? When? When will you be back? Why?" Were the main questions.

"I don't know where yet but i'm leaving today. I'm not sure when i'll be back and as for the reason why, that's a little obvious isn't it?" They looked at each other and nodded slowly.

"I just didn't want to leave without you guys knowing first and wishing me luck."

"Bella!' Alice and Rose stood and walked over to hug me. They had tears coming down their faces like me.

"I'll miss you guys." I whispered to them, they nodded in agreement.

"You have to promise you'll keep in touch with us." Rose said. I smiled.

"Of course i will."

"Sorry to interrupt this soap opera but i was wondering when i could get my hug in." Jacob said. I let go of Alice and Rose before going to hug him.

"Good luck Bells."

"Thanks Jacob." He let me go and then i hugged Jasper. After Jasper i hugged Emmet. He lifted me up into his arms with a death grip

"Emmet... can't... breath." I gasped. He loosened his grip and put me down.

"See you soon Bells, right?" I nodded at him.

"I'll talk to you guys later, ok? I need to get on the road." They all nodded and walked me downstairs. I was just opening the front door when i heard someone say my name.

"Bella?" I froze, then thawed and turned around. There standing with a distressed look on his face was Edward. "Are you really leaving?" I nodded, god i'm doing a lot of that lately.

"But bella..." His voice grew quiet.

"But what Edward? Why do you care so much anyway? Like i said, you need to be preparing for your wedding. Why don't you go and comfort Tanya? You won't be missing me much anyway." I opened the front door and walked outside to my car.

"Bella wait!" I stopped with my hand on the doors handle. I turned to face him, a glare already forming.

"Bella i have to tell you something."

"What, that you love me? Edward i think you've used that lined a bit too much lately. I'm surprised you're still crying wolf."

"Bella please.." He sighed and stepped closer. I opened the door and pushed it so it was between us.

"I've got to go Edward. See you in a couple of years." I climbed in and started the car. As i pulled out of the driveway i looked in the back mirror. This is what i saw...

Romeo wasn't coming for his Juliet.
