Chapter One: The First Day I saw Her

First Day

Other's POV

"Goodbye, Bella," he said in the same quiet, peaceful voice.

"Wait!" She choked out the word, reaching for him, willing her legs to carry her forward.

His hands pinned her wrists and pinned her arms to her sides. He leaned down, pressed his lips very lightly to her forehead for the briefest instant. She closed her eyes.

He seemed to whisper something in her ear, and then he vanished. ((New Moon, Page 72 and 73))

I watched as she ran in the direction he had gone. Moving as silent as shadow I followed until she came to a stop and collapsed on the ground sobbing. Slowly I approached the crying beauty on the forest ground.

I knelt beside her and laid a hand on her shoulder. From the first moment I saw her in walking in the woods with the one call Edward, I knew she was the one.

"Edward?" Her voice was shaky as she lifted her head.

She was more beautiful then any woman I have ever seen. Her eyes were the color of the sky after a storm and her lips were the color of the red rose. I wrapped my arms around her and held her close and I felt her trembling subside in my embrace.

Bella's POV

I felt a hand rest on my shoulder.

"Edward?" I asked in shakily as I lifted my head.

It wasn't Edward. But he was as beautiful as Edward was. His hair was black with pale skin and dark eyes.

He started into my face and wrapped his arms around me. He held my trembling body close, until I stopped. He pulled away and with a careful warm hand, wiped the tears from my face.

I smiled sadly at him in thanks.

"Who are you?" I asked.

He smiled a brilliant smile.

"My name is Daray"

"I'm Bella," I breathed. His dark eyes seemed to hypnotize me, not like Edward's gaze, where I would be dazzled and not be able to breath. Daray's gaze held me in place.

"Nice to meet you, Bella" he murmured.

He studied my face.

"You're so beautiful," he breathed in my ear, causing me to tremble.

"BELLA!" I heard a deep voice calling from a few hundred feet away.

Daray looked in the direction where the voice had come. He looked back into my eyes and smiled.

"I will come find you soon," he stated and hovered his lips over mine before running off.

AN: First chapter done! Two more left and no Daray didn't kiss Bella, so don't freak out yet .
