Hey everyone. Here is my first attempt of a story called One. Here's the full summary:

AH. BxE. Bella Swan at the age of six was adopted by Carlisle and Esme Cullen, along with their eleven year old son Edward. As time went on Bella and Edward established a strong yet dysfunctional relationship between each other. Bella's life takes an unexpected turn at the age of sixteen when her parents die suddenly in a car accident and she finds herself in the care of a very controlling Edward Cullen.

Preface

February, 2010

"You can't keep controlling me like this Edward," I snapped at him once again, my voice hoarse from the constant yelling.

"I can and I will. Why is it you keep forgetting that I'm all you have," he replied icily, those cold green eyes of his glaring into my brown ones.

I huffed in annoyance, because as many times that I never admitted to it, I did know he was all that I had and that frightened me. "You have to let me go," I pleaded with him.

"No way in hell Bella," he yelled at me, his usual velvet voice turned cold and full of anger. He stalked towards me like a predator. I looked around the small yet beautiful living room and tried to figure a way to escape him, but there was no out. I was cornered. And by the way he was approaching me, he knew it. He had the control.

He continued, "When will it seep into your thick skull that you are mine; I have control over you whether you like it or not. And I could give a fuck whether you like it or not, because that's not how it works, but you already know that."

A tear escaped my eye, how did it get this bad? He was now hovering in front of me, his arms on both sides of my body, keeping me locked in place, cornered by the wall and himself. "I want to go home," I tried to say in an even voice, but it came out strangled as I tried to weasel my way out of his presence.

His arms tightened around me, "This is your home."

"This has never and will never be my home," I snapped at him, knowing I was pushing his buttons. If I pushed just the right ones, I knew I could break him, like he continuously broke me.

He tightly shut his eyes, and I knew he was trying to refrain his horrible temper. I needed him to get sick of this game we constantly were playing, and once he realized he was bored he would let me go and let me live my life without his constant hovering.

But when he opened his eyes, I saw something in them I had never seen before. The small amount of doubt that he always held in them was now gone, and instead was replaced with certainty. "You are mine legally and emotionally Bella, and I will do whatever it is I can to fix whatever the fuck happened because that is my job as your legal guardian and your boyfriend."

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame

You say one love, one life (one life)
It's one need in the night
One love (one love), get to share it
Leaves you darling, if you don't care for it

Mary

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Well it's too late, tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One...

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Well, did I ask too much, more than a lot?
You gave me nothing, now it's all I got
We're one, but we're not the same
since we, hurt each other
Then we do it again

You say
Love is a temple
Love is a higher law
Love is a temple
Love is a higher law
You ask for me to enter
but then you make me crawl
And I can't keep holding on
To what you got
Cos' all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should
One life
With each other
Sisters and my
Brothers
One life
But we're not the same
We get to
Carry each other
Carry each other

One...
One love
