Okay, so here goes. My first Twilight fanfic. Obviously I don't own anything so please don't sue but PLEASE review. I got my sister to check over it but she may be biased! I really want to know what you all think.



Chapter 1

Bella's POV

Edward is gone.

The pain starts slowly. An unbearable ache in the back of my throat that travels quickly to my chest. It feels like my heart has been cut out, cut out with the edge of a broken bottle leaving behind jagged glass splinters that cut at the rest of me.

I can't breathe, I've forgotten how. I feel lightheaded and my stomach lurches and knots sickeningly.

My whole body is shaking and I can't stand up anymore. My knees give out and I crumple to the ground, clutching at the gaping, bloody wound in my chest. My vision is blurry and my eyes overflow with tears.

"Edward, please don't leave me" I choke out, I have found my voice and I scream out for him, over and over and over again.

Edward has left me.


Edward's POV

I run further into the forest, barely dodging the moss covered trees in my haste to get away. I can hear her screaming for me, hear her agonising cries and it takes all of my will not to go back to her.

I cannot be selfish, for her sake I will be strong. She deserves so much more than me, deserves so much more than I am able to give her.

She's begging for me to return and I close my eyes and run faster than I have ever run before. Soon I will be far enough away that I will no longer be able to hear her heart breaking. If I could cry, I would cry a river, no, an ocean for I do not want to leave my love. I did not think it ever would've been possible to part from her.

It is for her that I run. For I am a monster and do not deserve to be loved.
