I do not own Twilight or any of the character from Twilight.
It had taken months, since you walked away, before I was even able to breath again. I still have trouble functioning these days, but I'm surviving. My friends started to notice a change in my mood, and welcomed me back to life. Charlie almost sent me to Jacksonville with Renee at the beginning, but I couldn't leave. What if you came back looking for me? I couldn't leave incase you came back for me. I just had to stay, but by staying I had to start living again.
When I first walked back into life everything was different. At school my friends forgot I existed, and the teachers treated me like I was invisible. Some teacher thought I was a new student when I finally started talking again. I remember the first day I spoke to everyone at lunch. Half the group almost choked to death. Everyone just stared at me like I was an alien or something. Angela started becoming my best friend; helping me cope with everything happening. Things in Forks seemed to go back to normal until the Carson family came to town.
The family moved to Forks because the father was taking Carlisle's position at the hospital. The couple had one son who would be attending our school. He was a senior like us, and was coming from Jacksonville. The whole student population was talking about him. Most girls were planning to ask him out, while the boys were sizing him up.
On his first day to Forks high he was the main topic in almost every conversation. Other than hearing his name being whispered in every class the day was normal. He sat with us at lunch and we were introduced to one another. His name was Jeffery Mason Carson, and he was eighteen. He seemed nice and was fairly handsome, but he was nothing compared to you. I spoke with Angela the entire lunch period.
The day continued to go by just the same, until last hour came. Jeffery was in my class and of course the only seat available was your vacant one. He sat down right beside me and we started talking. He was very sweet and walked me to my car. From then on we were inseparable. I found out about two months later that he liked me from the moment he saw me. He first laid eyes on me when I was getting out of my truck that morning. The rest of the day he tired to find out everything he could about me. He said he couldn't believe how lucky he was to have me in one of his classes. He said that no matter how many negative things were said about me all he wanted to do was protect me.
After those flattering confessions I knew I had fallen once again. Jeffery was my protector from the world, from my pain, and from my heart. He helped me stand on my feet again, and whenever I faltered he was there to bring me back. Jeffery knew that my heart was always with you even while I was in his arms. He never cared because he was able to hold me and call me his. Jeffery is truly an unbelievable man Edward you would like him.
About a week after graduation Jeffery proposed. Which brings me to the reason for this letter. I'm going to marry him Edward. Jeffery was able to fill the whole in my heart that went with you. Even as I write to you about my future I just want you to know that I will always love you. Even as I give Jeffery my heart my soul will always belong to you.
Isabella Marie Swan.
As I sat in the dressing room looking over my letter to Edward one more time I felt tears rolling down my cheeks. I folded up the letter, placed it in an envelope, and sealed it. As I sealed my letter I knew that my life with Edward was completely gone. I placed a stamp on the letter and put it on the dresser. I looked at myself in the mirror to fix my make-up and check my hair one more time.
As I finished my last touch ups a soft knock came from the door. "Bella honey, are you ready? It's almost time dear!" Renee called as she opened the door. "Yeah mom I'm coming." I replied while putting on my veil. " Good! Here let me fix your veil." Renee stated as she place the veil, and made sure it laid properly. "Honey, you look so beautiful!" Renee said as tears rolled down her cheeks. " Thanks Mom!" I replied staring at her through the mirror. We stayed like that for a moment before it was really time to move. "Okay let's do this. Jeffery can't wait forever." As I said this I smiled knowing that Jeffery was waiting anxiously for me. Knowing that he would always be there for me no matter what came our way. With the closing of one door another opened, and I walked through without even glancing back. The wind whispered in my ear as I walked toward Jeffery ' Ready Bella your life awaits.'
Charlie mailed the letter a week later. It was sent to the Cullen's house in Forks. I never found out if it reached him.
(Let me know how I did. Please Review. I will have the next chapter up soon.)
