Yes, it's here, the triquel to 'Don't Go Into The Woods Alone'! and 'It's Better To Avoid The Woods Completely'! Take that as advice, by the way. Reading is completely necessary or this will make no sense. Trust me! And I only hope those few people kept their word and will read this, despite a major character death in the last one – cough, Edward, cough – so please, read on!

I don't own Twilight or New Moon. I do, however, own Don't Go Into The Woods Alone, and It's Better To Avoid The Woods Completely, so go me! I own something! And the Volturi aren't mine, either. I kinda killed everyone that was mine, though…oops…

Preface

My name is Isabella Marie Swan, of the Volturi, and I live a life of blood. A life which is not my own, where someone orders me to jump, and I demand the height. A life where I am ordered to punish those betraying our laws, where I might have to kill because it's my job.

Maybe I'm being unfair, maybe I'm judging Volterra before I arrive. But any place other than Forks, without my personal angel, is hell. And I will acknowledge it as such, until I am sent back to the heaven from which I was expelled.

As I watched the city below me, I made up my mind very fast. I would never accept Volterra as my home. No, Forks was my only home. This was punishment for every single sin I had ever committed…

I yearned for redemption.

And as the plane began to descend, my eternally frozen heart plummeted, and my eyes snapped open as I remembered where I was, and why I was there. How could I forget? Every moment I wasn't in his arms, I'd have it thrown in my face.

I had lost everything I ever loved. Charlie…Renee…the Cullens…Edward…it was as though fate had sworn an oath to rip me apart, and was succeeding. Fate had a problem with my happiness. It wanted me to suffer.

But I had sworn to myself too. That I would never allow Volterra to take the place of Forks in my heart. No, my heart would always lie where he was. That was the way it was, and the way it was going to stay.

I was going to find a way to return. Because love always finds a way. The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. The most wonderful feeling I ever had was how I thawed inside when I was with Edward, how my skin prickled when his arms were around me…

Hold onto that feeling…never let go…

My heart aches completely every hour and every day I'm without him. Only when I was by his side did that pain go away. If there were anyone who could restart my heart, no doubt it'd be him.

But while we were apart, my heart was closed. The Volturi would see just how nice I could be without Edward. Without the Cullens. Without my life.

Because there was a reason I managed to slaughter the entire pack of werewolves in Forks, and the majority of Llewellyn's coven. There was a reason the Volturi wanted me in their coven in the first place…

I was powerful. I had real power…

I was worth fearing.

It's here. But the next chapter will be a week away. Sorry guys, but I'm on holidays til then. And yeah, patience. Remember, this story is the only one in this series to actually have a happy ending.

So thank you so much to all those who've come this far with me. Any comments, helpful or just encouraging, are very eagerly welcomed.

It has happened! Both in the pretend world and myself have a joint profile, under the name of "masters of randomphilosophy". Private joke. Also, in the pretend world and I are writing a joint story, called "Dying Is Your Latest Fashion". Bound to be morbid, but wicked, seriously.

Please review, for our beloved Edward Cullen, who is amazingly perfect, and thankfully, back for good! Though, Bella is apart from him…

Just A Little Bit Dramatic
