A/N: This is my first fan fiction. Hope you enjoy. Dedicated to Duskri123 for betaing it, and for giving me the inspiration.
Sometimes I wonder if things happen because of fate, or if I've been on the wrong path for so long that this is my new fate.
Now I guess I'll never know. I hate the way my life worked out. I just want to curl up and die.
Edward left me. Alone; dying; in the cold, wet forest.
Why did I have to follow him, to see if he could change his mind?
Why did I have to fall in love with a Vampire?
Why did I even move to Forks?
Why couldn't I have just stayed with Renee and Phil?
Why did I choose to live here with Charlie?
I guess now I'll never know why I made this path.
It's getting cold now. I'm freezing.
I hear someone calling my name, again and again.
A twig snaps nearby and I freeze, a million things running in my head.
Am I going to die now? Is this an end to my suffering? Is it Edward?
"Bella," someone says, not through searching but through recognition.
I've been found.
"Bella," I hear again, closer. I can't prolong the inevitable any longer.
I look up so I can see the person.
It wasn't Edward as I'd hoped.
It was Emmett.
