A/N: I'm back, with a continuation of my first fanfic For the Love of the Game. I was so thrilled with the response that it got, that I just had to continue. This time around Bella is a senior, and newly single. Look for new, oddly familiar characters, and plenty of drama. Edward has shattered Bella's heart, but how is he taking the break-up? Tune in to find out; I have decided to start this where the last one left off, except in Edward's point of view. Please let me know how I do with that; it is important to the story that we get Edward's side of the story, but I'm not sure if I can get into his head. Edward is a complex character, and very hard to embody, so I hope I do him justice. Anyways, here it is, and it will not make sense unless you have read For the Love of the Game. AH, AU, a little OOC
Disclaimer: The characters of Twilight aren't mine, but this story is.
Chapter 1: It's Over Edward POV
My dear, sweet Bella had just excused herself to the restroom, when I heard the door chime ring. Instinctually, I turned towards the door, and saw Tanya walk in. I turned away immediately, hoping to avoid her, but she saw me and walked towards me.
"Tanya, go away; I don't ever want to talk to you," I told her.
"Oh please, Edward I can see the way you look at me; it's the same look that you used to give me back in Land O'," she replied.
"You wish Tanya, I will never want you; I have Bella, and I love her," I dismissed her, and turned back to my beverage.
She then climbed onto my lap, and was straddling me. Before I was even able to figure out what was going on, she had grabbed my face, and clamped her lips onto mine. I tried to get her off of me by pushing at her hips, but then I she was ripped off of my lap and I heard the voice that made my heart leap.
"Just get the hell out of here before I kick your ass," Bella yelled at Tanya, who immediately got up and ran out the door.
I looked up at her, and she seemed to be on the verge of tears.
"How could you?" she yelled at me. "How could you do that to me?"
My heart was breaking even more by the second. I knew that what had happened was wrong, but she just had to see that I didn't want Tanya and I wanted her with every fiber of my being.
"Bella," I started to say, but she cut me off.
"After what she did to you, why?" the tears were getting harder for her to hold back, and I just had to explain the situation to her.
"Bella, I'm so sorry, she just jumped on me. I know that's not really a reason or an excuse, but please believe that I didn't want it or enjoy it," I stood up, and made my way towards her; I just had to hold her in my arms, but she pushed me away.
"No, no, no, no, no, I will not fall for your tricks. You will not lie to me. I saw your hands on her ass! How could you do that to me, knowing what my father did to my mom?!" My face fell as I remembered the time that she told about how her father had cheated on her mother. I couldn't believe the pain that I was causing my beautiful Bella.
She ran out the door, but I followed and puller her back to me. I couldn't let her feel as if I had betrayed her in that way.
"Bella, please don't go, I'm sorry. I don't know what else to say, but please don't go, I love you," I was desperate, and couldn't let her leave; she just had to see it my way, but it seemed as if I was just digging myself in deeper.
"You love me! You love me! What a relief, I was worried that after I saw you cheating on me that you would hate me," I could tell that she was using the sarcasm to hide her pain.
"Bella, please, can we talk about this? I gave her my saddest, most pitiful pout, hoping that she would give in, and stay to talk with me. She looked as if she was about to give, but instead she pulled the bracelet I gave her, off her wrist and threw it at me before turning and running for her car.
Now it was my turn to be on the verge of tears. I had just lost the love of my life, and I had no idea what could be done to fix this.
I did, however, know someone who might be able to help me. I immediately opened my phone to call that one person.
"Hello?" I heard the familiar, comforting voice ask.
"Mom, can you please come pick me up?"
"I thought you were with Bella, sweetie,"
"I was, but I screwed up and she left. Mom, please just come pick me up; I don't want to get into it just yet,"
"Ok hun, I'll be there in a few minutes," she replied before hanging up.
Not more than five minutes later, my mom picked me up, and started with the questioning.
"Edward, what happened today?" she asked.
"Tanya," I was hoping that the name would be enough explanation.
"Oh honey, I'm so sorry," she placed a comforting hand on my shoulder.
"Mom, I have to find a way to get her back. I love her with all my heart," I was nearly sobbing.
"I know that baby, and I think that it's entirely possible, but it won't be easy,"
"I would do anything to get her back. Please mom, I need your help,"
"Of course, I'll help you honey," I felt relief course through my body at my mother's words; she would definitely know what I had to do to get Bella back.
A/N 2: I'm sorry this one is short, but I got through what I needed to. I'm not sure if I'll do anything else in Edward's point of view, but I might if you guys review and tell me that you like it. Please review, they keep my spirits up, and these days I desperately need it because I start my summer class tomorrow. Hopefully, I will have a new chapter up soon, but I'm not promising anything.
