Chapter 13: New Beginning

Brooke's POV:

I knew that this is what needed to be done. I just could not live in this house anymore. I already felt as if I barely belonged. I also knew that I wasn't in love with Edward, ad he wasn't in love with me. Alice

had told me that they had cousins who lived in Alaska, and I'd contacted one about possibly moving in with them. Edward stared blankly as I told Alice all of this information.

"But, are you sure?" Alice asked. "We can work things out and think things through, Brooke."

"I personally, don't object," said Edward. I glared at him, and he rolled his eyes.

Alice ignored him. "I really don't know about this, but if you feel it is what's best."

I nodded. "I do. I just feel…out of place here."

I felt a weird sensation. I couldn't describe it. I was sure that if I was human, I would've been crying.

Alice shook her head slowly and sighed. "Well, let's go talk to Esme."

I nodded, and followed her out of the room.


Edward's POV:

I watched as Alice and Brooke left the room, feeling a strange mixture of emotions. I was lightly sad that Brooke felt the need to leave our family, but she was right. It wasn't working out with her. I also

thought about what this meant for my future. I had to think about things. I had to figure out how I felt about Bella. Well, I already knew how I felt. I wanted to grow closer to her. To learn things about her.

With Brooke gone, this could be a new beginning for Bella and I…but was I ready for that?

I made my way to the piano in the main room downstairs and let my thoughts thrift to Bella. I began to compose a melody as I imagined her flawless skin, her amazing scent...her deep pink blush. I thought

about Alice's vision. Maybe it would be coming true, sooner than I thought.


Bella's POV:

Edward was such a mystery to me. He was bad for me? What had that meant? I felt like I'd been sucked into this whirlwind with him and I'd only known him for a few days. It didn't make sense, but I felt

drawn to him. I felt as if I meant something to him. Why did he go through all this trouble to talk to me, to help me when I fainted in Bio, to make sure I knew that he didn't hate me? I wasn't quite sure, but I

knew for a fact that I was falling for him. Those beautiful eyes, that smile, his hair...I wanted him to be mine, but I wasn't sure if it would ever happen.

Sorry I know it's old, but I'm just trying to get back into the swing of things. Please Reviews. Any suggestions?
