Nightmare

I frantically through the forest, thrashing my way through the under brush. I searched desperately for a break in the dense branches. I kept running. Brambles tore at my hair and clothes. Twigs snapped under my rushing feet. My breath came is quick fleeting spurts. My chest was heaving. My heart beat unsteadily. As I pushed harder through the woods, I heard something that made my senses stop and an icy shiver ran down my spine. Fear, horror, and panic slowly seeped through my body.

I was on the brink of tears as I finished. I was still quaking. Edward put both hands of my face and look directly into my eyes. "Bella, what were you running from?" His voice was grave, with a slight hint of sternness, as if he was going to murder the one that I was running from. Tears welled in my eyes and spilled silently over. I looked away from him and whispered,
