"Bells, I loved you." his voice came out barely louder than a whisper. She could hear the anguish and pain in his voice. She would have done anything to get rid of it. When she tried to speak all she could come up with was "I'm sorry." She felt her eyes sting as hot tears ran down her face. There was nothing she could do. She could beg, but it wouldn't erase what she had done. "You chose a dog over me, you really were just using me." as the words came out of his mouth they didn't sound so much like an accusation as a fact he really believed. She wanted to reassure him it wasn't true, but she was so uncertain about everything that anything she said would seem like a lie. So she waited in silence staring at the ground, not wanting to have to go through the hell of looking in his eyes.

She didn't hear him approach her, but she could feel his presence as he walked toward her. She felt his cold hand with the hard flawless texture of marble cup her cheek and his thumb stroke her smooth skin. She shivered as his icy skin caressed hers. He tucked one side of her hair behind her ear and leaned down to whisper "Run. Run as fast as you can and don't you dare stop because if you do I'll kill you." The words came out harsh and rung inside her mind, Edward.. .The Edward that said he would always love me is threatening to kill me. It didn't seem right, but then neither did her sleeping with Jacob Black. She had betrayed him and he was in a lot of pain. Pain that was unthinkable. She managed to stand up, avoiding his gaze as he said "I'll give you five minutes, hurry up."

He stepped aside to let her by, but she couldn't bring herself to move. "Edward…" The words came out soft and more a murmur to herself than him. "Don't think I won't, your fucking dog came by looking for you. I killed him. If you don't believe me I can prove it to you" The words left his mouth with anger and hate. She knew they were true, she didn't need him to prove to her. She deserved to die. After what she did to him she deserved the most painful death she could think of. She stood still waiting. She could feel Edward staring at her, but she was going to die willingly. The next sentence sent her fleeing into the woods though. " I have Charlie. If you don't run I'll kill him. He will suffer." Bella felt her legs move without even thinking about it. She didn't look back to see if he followed.
