Prologue

Edward clenched his jaw tightly shut and stared through narrow eyes at the man standing in front of him. No one said a word and yet Edward couldn't help but feel that his every secret was being revealed to the one person who was most important to him. If he lost her, he would lose everything.

He was hyperaware of the perfect girl standing next to him with her chocolate eyes focused on his grave expression. It took every fiber of his being to not turn toward her and confess about the web of lies and deceit he'd placed her in.

He'd been so sure that nothing would go wrong, that his plan had no flaws but it was that one small mistake, one mistake that was easily overlooked that would change their lives forever. If only Bella hadn't been there to witness what would soon follow. He didn't want her to know what he had inadvertently done to her thinking that he was somehow helping her but failing miserably.

Would she believe his reasons or would she construe them in a way that made him out to be a betrayer, a lie, a fake? After all, when he thought about it that way, he was everything he'd promised himself in the beginning he wouldn't be.

The air was tense and Edward had never felt so helpless in his entire life.

"Edward?" Bella asked in her low voice. "What's going on?"

Tortured, he closed his eyes at the most significant sound in his world, a sound that would be taken away from him for good.

"What are you hiding from me?" Her voice broke.

Edward snapped his head up and locked his gaze on Bella's confused eyes. He knew he should've listened to Jasper and Emmett then maybe his actions wouldn't have had such terrible repercussions. He'd meant for Bella to find out but not like this.

"Bella," he whispered, his voice laced with pain. "I'm sorry."

The man standing in front of him didn't say a word. He only watched the exchange between Bella and the way she was looking at Edward, like he meant everything to her. He didn't want to ruin this second for them though he had to do it.

Edward Cullen had been perfect at everything in college. He'd been better and that wasn't going to be tolerated today. Just this once, the man wanted to see him vulnerable. He wanted to see what the real Edward Cullen was like when this Bella, the person who clearly mattered to him the most, would be taken away. The man felt guilty but not enough to let Edward have his way.

"Bella," Edward mouthed again, straining his eyes away from Bella's face. "I think you should go. There are some things we need to discuss."

Bella, however, didn't move. "I'm not leaving until you tell me what's going on."

The man grinned widely at her stubborn nature while Edward shook his head, still uncomfortable. "I'm not hiding anything. This has nothing to do with you."

At that, the strange man broke out into a roar of laughter. Edward's cold eyes shot him a murderous glare that he ignored. "Why lie to her Edward? You've been doing enough of that lately. Doesn't Bella deserve an ounce of truth? You know that she has everything to do with our situation. She has every right to be here."

"You've been lying to me?" she whispered. She watched the guilt as it consumed the striking man.

The man smirked and answered for him when Edward refused to speak. "Of course he is. Come on Edward. Tell her. Tell her that you're not her real fiancé. I am."
