THIS IS A FAN FICTION NOVEL

DISCLAIMER:

All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners. The original characters and plot are the property of the author. The author is in no way associated with the owners, creators, or producers of any media franchise. No copyright infringement is intended.

Because this is a CANON STORY, use of situations and dialogue from Ms. Meyer's novels is purely meant to keep the narrative in canon. No plagarism is intended. As much as possible, I tried to write these scenes from Carlisle's perspective and/or interject my own ideas into them.

I hope you enjoy the result.
