Perfect Enemy Prologue:
A/N: Okay, this is an excerpt from a later chapter. Its not the exact same because I made it a little shorter, but you get the idea. Here's a taste of what's to come!
Tap tap tap! I rushed to my window immediately at the familiar sound and opened it as quietly as I could. Sure enough, there was my beautiful, bronze haired prince, hanging onto my windowsill, a smile plastered on his face, come to save the damsel in distress. Me.
"Edward! What are you doing here?" I whisper yelled. Tears fought their way into my eyes. "If they find you, they'll kill you!" His smile turned into a frown, his eyes full of sadness.
"I'm sorry. I just…I was so worried that I would never see you again…So worried that you would be hurt because of me. So help me God, Bella, if those bastards lay one finger-"
"They're not going to hurt me, Edward. Aro likes my power too much to get rid of me. But you, I could never forgive myself if they killed you, Edward. I love you far too much to ever live without you," I whispered. I would have helped him into my room if there wasn't the possibility that he would dirty my carpet from climbing two stories and someone would see it. The tears flowed freely now, running hot down my face. I was so afraid that someone would see him.
"And I love you far too much to let them get away with this, Bella. Listen, I thought about it, and I came up with one solution. It seems to be the only thing we have left, love. It's going to be hard, but it's the only way we can be together," he said. His expression was hopeful, his crooked smile in place. I noticed his eyes were a darker green than usual and he had purplish bruises under them, as if he hadn't been sleeping. I had not been sleeping, either, but I felt horrible that this affected him, too. My poor, innocent, angelic boy had to suffer because of the love we shared, because of my family's hatred for his family. Could we ever just be happy?
A sob escaped me as I said, "I'm listening." He smiled sadly again, and his next few words made me completely lose it.
"Run away with me, Bella."
A/N: Wow that sounds like Romeo and Juliet, doesn't it? But I promise that I did not get the storyline from Shakespeare! I actually got this idea from Watchmen, lol. Anyway, this story is a bit weird…mostly a sci-fi romance, so it's probably not for everyone, but then again, Twilight was a sci-fi romance, too! Reviews make me want to write more, so if you like it, you know what to do!
