Unexpected guests

Chapter 1

Bella Pov

I travelled to the forest again, the nineteenth time that month. I had spent most of my time there, especially over those five months. Ever since that day, the forest felt like my second home, it helped clear my head. There was a certain part of the forest that I favoured; it was just outside of my house. It always helped me to clear my mind, I would either go there to read and write, or more commonly; listen to music.

But that time I had gone up there for a particular reason. Charlie had been helping me through my tough time, which was Edw… HIM leaving me. Charlie had tried many different methods to get me out of my depression but nothing had worked. So he had come up with a whole new idea. It sounded a bit stupid to me, but if it made him happy I would do it. Charlie had brought me a diary, I was supposed to write all my thoughts and feelings down, apparently to, 'get it all off my chest'. I guess it did help, just not very much. But the clearing was peaceful, that meant that I would not be disturbed. It meant that I could cry, and scream, and holler without alerting Charlie. So I went to try.

As I was walking up towards the clearing, I had that feeling I was being watched. I turned around to assess the surrounding trees, but naturally I didn't see anything. I plugged in my headphones and started listening to my music. It always managed to get me in the right mood. My taste in music had altered quite a bit, since HE left. It mostly consisted of 'Evanescence' and 'Nightwish'. (AN try them they rock)Anything else reminded me of HIM. So I tried to not listen to anything else, otherwise it would bring back unwanted memories, memories that hurt.

Before I started writing, I listened to my favourite song – 'My Immortal' by Evanescence. It didn't exactly but me in a good mood, just the right mood. As soon as the song started up, I started joining in; I knew the song off by heart. When I was alone, I didn't mind showing off my voice, because, (even though I didn't like to admit it) I was quite good at singing.

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

I closed my eyes to concentrate, only on the singing. But the feeling I was being watched slowly intensified.


These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

I continued singing, but opened my eyes. Just to check if anyone was there.


You used to captivate me
By your resonating light
Now I'm bound by the life you left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

There was no-one around, but I just couldn't shake the feeling. I was getting really edgy.


These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

I heard a rustle from above me, and saw a small bird in the tree. I just ignored the uneasy feeling in my stomach and just continued to sing.


I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

As I finished, I felt more at ease, and I noticed that there was not only a bird in the tree, but there was a small family of deer to the right of me. It felt good to know, that animals weren't scared of me, that they thought me so harmless that they could bring their young near me. I felt in the right mood to do a diary entry, I could easily write all my thoughts and feelings down.

(AN i really like this story, i was really proud of it R&R please it makes me happy)
