AN: Hello to all the newcomers and original Always Charmed one-shot fans! Thanks for giving this new expansion a shot.

I've posted the prologue as well as the first two charms/chapters all at once because I love my readers just that much…well, that and the first two posts are pretty much a repeat from the one-shot and I wanted to give you something new. So see, I do love you!

For those of you who are reading my other fic, Notion, have no fear, I will be finishing that one up very soon (I think between 3-6 more chapters left).

Thank you's go out to kitty_cullen for beta-ing and encouragement, and to freakyhazeleyes for being generous with her help.

Disclaimer: I do not own Twilight or any of it's characters, I just arrange them for my own ammusement.

I couldn't breathe. The air just wouldn't stay in my lungs. In fact, my whole body instantly felt as if it was in the midst of a mutiny - my knees buckled, my head throbbed, my throat constricted, and the acid in my stomach churned and threatened to burn it's way right through the closed passage in my gullet. I was shaking so uncontrollably that the tiny charms on my bracelet were clanging together. That noise was the only one I heard above all the cries, above the incessant woman in front of me asking if I was okay, above the cell phone that was furiously vibrating next to me on the floor. All the commotion around me ceased, except for the violent tinkling sound of the bracelet vacillating on my wrist.

My watery eyes were fixed upon those shivering charms. Each one was a memory, a story that was shared only between the best of friends. Some were glorious. Some were painful. All of them were strictly reserved for us…only us…

But now there was no more us. There was only me.

Only me. Alone.

No, no, no, no…

I closed my eyes, the first of countless tears plummeting from the corners and crashing to the ground furiously. As they escaped my body, I felt his presence leaving along with them. My fists feverishly flew to my eyes trying to stop the tears, to stop him from abandoning me, from abandoning my very soul.

But I was too late. There was nothing I could do to stop them from pouring out of me, from him pouring out of me.

I was nothing.

I was empty.

My life was gone.
