Prologue A/N: Sorry this is short, but remember this is just the preface. To the readers of my other stories, 'Together, We Can Stop Them,' AKA Remembering needs a lot of editing at the moment and 'I Didn't Mean To Fall In Love…' just needs to be tweaked. But then I'm posting again. Promise.

Disclaimer: If I were Stephanie Meyer…The Twilight series wouldn't be over yet.

Preface

I couldn't recall when I had last been in this much pain. For the last twelve hours, the pain from my waist down had increased significantly to the point where I thought I was going to die.

But I wouldn't die, I was going to fight my hardest to stay alive, for my family, for the people who loved and cared about me.

I laid back on the hospital bed and closed my eyes for a second, breathing through the last bit of the pain. The doctor told me after this, the pain would soon go away; but it didn't. It increased more and spread throughout the rest of my body. Now, from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, I was in unbearable pain.

"Bella, you're going to be okay," I heard him whisper next to me, gripping my hand tightly. I swallowed and tried to nod, I wasn't sure if I had succeeded or not though.

"Isn't there anything we can do," I heard another voice ask frantically, gripping my other hand in hers. I didn't hear the doctor respond, I just tried to deal with the incredible pain.

However, it didn't work as well as I had planned and I let out a loud, high-pitched, scream. I wasn't too sure what was happening next, but the voices and noises around me seemed to become fainter and fainter. I was fighting a losing battle and the darkness was winning.

No, I scolded myself, you have to make it. You have to stay alive, for your beautiful angels. They need you Bella!

"Now," I heard the doctor order.

"I'm sorry," he whispered. That was the last thing I heard before I fell into a total blackness, where the only thing I felt was a burning sensation in my body.

A/N: This is the first preface I've ever written, which is why it's so short. But luckily, I know exactly where this story is going and I have it all planned and most of it written and everything.

I probably won't update in the next couple days because tomorrow I'm FINALLY getting Breaking Dawn (insert high-pitched scream here) so I'll be busy reading that for the next couple days, since I hear its long. Oh and please review…constructive criticism is welcome…just no mean ones please.
