Ch. 20-Epilogue

Make it a Sweet, Sweet Goodbye

Four months. Four long...grueling...lonely months. Four months since Bella Swan died. Four months since she was unfairly taken from this world. The guys have been coping as best they can. She requested to be cremated and to have her ashes spread into the ocean water. That's what they did. However they did get a plaque at a cemetery.

Isabella Marie Swan. A true spirit who's blessed us all with that gorgeous smile. We hope you're walking with the angels, because you'll walk and live forever in our hearts. We love and miss you. September 13, 1990-February 27th, 2010

Edward hasn't been able to move on in the way she probably wishes. He hasn't met any girl like her. He doesn't want to even think about being with another girl at the moment. All he thinks about is Bella. She remains with him always. He's kept her alive in his heart and in his memories, it still hurts though. He misses her more and more every day. He grew so accustomed to seeing her so much. He took for granted waking up to her every morning and kissing her softly. He misses everything about that girl.

As Edward approaches the beach he sighs quietly to himself. He walks to the exact spot where he spread her ashes. Where he let the ocean carry them away. He comes here for closure. He comes here when he feels alone. He remembers that she told him to just imagine her when he feels most alone. He knows he's not alone. He knows she's always there. When the sun shines, he knows she's smiling down on him. When the breeze tickles his shirt of kisses his skin, he knows it's her playing with him. He smiles at the thought. As the waves crash together he crosses his legs and grabs a stray stick beginning to draw a very familiar symbol. A heart. He begins to write the three words he's spoken to her every night before he goes to bed. As the sun sets, he knows she's saying goodnight. As the stars begin to twinkle, he knows she's sparkling up there, watching over him.

"I miss you Bella." He whispered to himself. He sets the stick down and stares out in the sunset. The clear water sparkles with the reflection. The slight ocean breeze picks up and tickles the back of his neck, he can almost hear her whisper back.

"I miss you too Edward." He smiles to himself knowing there wasn't a breeze today. She is in fact with him. And for once...he doesn't feel so terrible. He feels more at peace than he has in a very long time. He blows a kiss out to the water and waves before standing up and slowly walking away.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she always gone too long anytime she goes away

Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away

And I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know

Hey I'll leave the young thing alone
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Only darkness everyday

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
