Ok so this story is about Bella and Edwards struggle through Edward being drafted, I hope you enjoy, and review!! All human, Bella's POV
One week early:
Every time I turn the news on I shudder before quickly turning it back off. The war going on is so horrid that I hate hearing about the events. I cant bare to think of the very possible chance of my Edward, my life, being drafted into the army. I don't know how I could take living without him, for a short period time…or for a very long time. Edward and I have been married for three months, the day after he turned eighteen. He proposed on his birthday and we were married the next, crazy teenagers running off to Vegas. I loved him with all of my heart and would do anything for him.
I heard footsteps approaching the door and headed towards it to greet my husband. He threw the door open and grabbed me in his arms and crushed his lips to mine. After a few moments he let go and looked at me with misty eyes.
"whats wrong?" I asked with a small shaky voice. He held up a letter and I nearly collapsed.
"I've been drafted. I have to leave in three days." He whispered. I shook my head slowly and grabbed his arms before collapsing into his chest. He picked me up and brought me to the couch. He cradled me in his arms until I calmed down. "I promise, I will come back to you. I love you far to much to leave." He said looking directly into my eyes. A shuddered rippled through my body as our eyes met and locked. He seemed so sure of what he was saying, but how could he be? That war was horrid and people were dying every day!
"I don't want you to go!" I yelled in a whisper, he nodded and kissed my forehead.
"I don't want to go either love, but I have to." He murmured against my hair.
"how long will you be gone?" I asked afraid of his answer. He paused for a moment before giving his answer.
"seven months," I gasped and felt tears roll down my cheeks. He leaned down and kissed them away.
"promise me you will come back!" I said tears falling down my face hard. He nodded.
"I promise, I love you Bella, I love you with all of my being! But I need you to know something, if something does happen to me, I need you to continue living your life, fore I will always be with you, if not in body in spirit! Do you understand me?" he asked fiercely. I nodded and he kissed me in a way that should be illegal, and for a split second I forgot everything except the perfect man holding me in his arms.
It seemed like those three days past by in the blink of an eye. And now here I was waving goodbye to the love of my life as he boarded a plane to leave me for seven months. I heard a stifled cry from beside me and turned to see a short pixie like girl standing next to me waving goodbye as well. She turned to me when she noticed my stare.
"Hi, im Alice Hale, but I go by Alice." She said quietly while offering me her hand. I shook it and sniffled back a tear.
"Hi, im Isabella Mason, but I go by Bella." I said while shaking her hand. "Who are you here for?" I asked hoping not to sound rude.
"My husband, jasper Hale, we were only married a month ago," she chocked back a sob and asked me who I was saying good bye to.
"My husband, Edward Mason, we were married almost four months ago." I said chocking back a sob of my own.
"Well Bella, Im glad I met you, we both are going to need each other for these months away from our men, don't you think?" I nodded and to my surprise she hooked her arm through mine. I didn't mind though. She was right, we would need each other, and these were going to be the longest seven months of my entire life! I know I can't do it alone.
