A/n: I don't own anyone from Twilight. Thanks for all the support and reviews during this story. I will be finishing up my other Twilight story "Still Adjusting" before I decide if I am done writing. Thanks for the support.

Bella POV

It has been two years since I was brought to Rome, during the worst time in my life, and forced to stay. I didn't want to be here, I didn't like it, and I was a slave to my memories. I didn't think Rome held anything for me, but I was wrong. I found my true love again and I haven't let him go since.

We just celebrated the first birthday of our son, Robert. I have never been happier in my life to have a family, a child, and a real home. I didn't think I would get used to Rome and ever want to call it home; but I was wrong. Edward and I have a great life together and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Alice and Jasper have their little girl, Renee, and are expecting another one any day now. They are so in love and happy together. Alice and I remain best friends and our children play together every day. We even say that they would be married, if they weren't family. Jasper has taken his father's place in the senate and had brought good changes to Rome. He even allowed outsiders to be Roman citizens.

Emmett and Rose are more in love now than ever and have a large family. Rose had twins her instead of just one, and Emmett fell in love with the two little boys immediately. Rose and Emmett took forever to decide on names, but finally agreed on Kellan and Jackson. They are so happy and also expecting another child in a few months. Emmett has lead successful campaigns defeating the Babylonians and the Barbarians to the north. He is now the commanding general over all of Rome's army. He also wiped anyone from my family out of Egypt and apologized almost every day for a year for killing my father. I told him I had forgiven him and move on.

Esme is doing well since Carlisle's death. He died peacefully in his sleep and she named each of them a ruler in their own way. She is happy to be surrounded by her family and grandchildren. She named Emmett commanding general, gave Jasper the senate, and Edward the masses. She will occasionally attend games that are in her honor, but is happy to stay in the palace and have her gardens.

Edward is doing good and wants more children now that our son is one year old. He thinks we should try every day and makes it a point every day to tell me he loves me before he leaves the palace. He also apologized every day for more than a year for how he treated me and I would just kiss him. I told him once that even cruelty can be broken and he agrees with me because it worked on him. He will not whip a slave anymore and usually get angry with people who think they are property. He often reminds people that slaves are not property, but they are people. I am so glad that he changed from that monster, that I knew when I first arrived, to my loving husband.

I didn't think I would survive when I first made it to Rome, but I did. I have my family, my friends, and my life ahead of me; and it all starts with Edward. I even thanked Emmett one time for making me a slave and he looked at me like I was crazy, but I just smiled at him and told him that if I wasn't a slave then you wouldn't have brought me to Edward. I don't know what the future holds, I don't know how many kids I will have, I don't know if I will ever go back to Egypt; but I do know how strong of a person I am and what my life is today. I was so angry when I first came because I didn't think I would survive cruelty, but I didn't just survive it, I fell in love with it.

A/N: The end. I hope you liked it and will at least check out my other Twilight Story "Still Adjusting". Thanks again for the support and reviews.
