Chapter 3


Victoria

I didn't know why I was scared. I had known Edward my whole life. We had met as small children and dated in high school. But when he asked me to run away, it felt like my heartbeat quickened.

That night I had walked home, unlocked the door, and went straight to bed. I could hear the question over and over again in my head, pounding until finally my subconscious took over and I fell asleep. My dreams were filled with Edward.

The next morning I found a letter in my mailbox. It seemed of no importance until I opened it. The letter was from Edward and it talked about how he loved me and how I should run away with him, but at the end it was clearly written:

"Carlisle and Esme are moving me. I know that I will continually move so this is the last chance, will you run away with me?"

I walked inside and sat down on the ground. Tears flooded from my eyes. Why would he do this to me? I thought to myself, but it did no good and soon I passed out.

I awoke to morning and I was in my bed. Wait, this isn't where I fell asleep, I thought sitting up. Edward was seated in the corner looking at me with sorrowful eyes. "What's wrong?" I asked trying to get passed the fact that he was there. "I read your thoughts; they say you love me, but you don't want to run away." He said looking straight into my eyes. "How do you read my thoughts?" I asked confused and afraid. "When I became a vampire, I got the power, if you will, to read everyone's thoughts around me."

I scared, scared that he would leave me. "I have to go." He said and gave me one last kiss and then left. He was gone, he was really gone. Tears soon started flooding my eyes, I did love him and now he was gone.
