Preface:

I didn't think I would ever fall in love with him again. I had someone else. I had Alec; he understood my pain and was patient with me. With Edward back in the picture, I saw more potential with Edward then Alec. With Alec, I was traveling nonstop to Italy. With Edward I really wasn't going anywhere. But that wasn't always the issue; if Alec and I got married I would be part of the Voultri forever, no turning back. With Edward I would be free to live my life the way I wanted. I wasn't one to make the choices, but I had to step up when the choices affected my life and someone else's.
