I awoke in a hospital bed with Edward at my side. He looked as if he were a 4 year old at Disney World. I was so happy to see him, but I still had some questions.

"Are you okay, love?" I could see he was happy that I had finally awaken, but worried at the same time.

"I'm fine, But I have some questions. What happened to James?" If they didn't kill him he could be tracking me right now.

"Jasper and Emmett took care of him. Carlisle said you have to stay here a little while longer."

He went to go check in with the nurse. What did Edward tell Charlie? I saw nervousness in his eyes since I woke up. We were sitting on the hospital bed when he finally expressed his concern.

"Bella we need to talk. I think I should leave for awhile. What happened with James is proof enough that me being with you is dangerous for both of us.

I knew I would regret saying this someday, but it's for her safety. "Bella we need to talk. I think I should leave for awhile. What happened with James is proof enough that me being with you is dangerous for both of us."

"What?! How could you even say that? I thought you loved me..." Then she trailed off.

What just happened? "Bella! Are you okay?"

"Sir, she has fallen into a coma." I was just as shocked as the nurse was.

"Bella, I love you and I always will."

"Bella, I love you and I always will." Those were the last words I heard from his sweet voice.
