Summary: Edward Cullen thought he had the perfect life, being the grandson of Elizabeth Cullen, founder of one of the best coffeeshops in the country. Money. Respect. NYC. He had them all. When out of nowhere came in Isabella Swan, who saved his grandmother from an assassination, his life began to go downhill. He could be in danger of losing his most prized possession: his legacy. All human.


American author and motivational speaker Zig Ziglar once said, "Money isn't the most important thing in life, but it's reasonably close to oxygen on the 'gotta have it' scale." You know what? The dude was right. Money was everything to me. Along with it came respect and power.

Lucky for me, I came from a very, very wealthy family. My grandmother, Elizabeth Cullen, is the founder of Bella Villagio, making her the richest women in New York City. My grandfather Ed passed away a couple of years after my dad was born, widowing Gran at a young age of twenty-one. With the money that my Grandpa Ed had left her, Gran started her own business, a coffeehouse called Bella Villagio. Twenty years later, Bella Villagio became one of the most renowned coffeeshops in the country. In response to customers' demand, there are now eighty-seven locations in fifteen states.

I never had to worry about money, thanks to Gran. I lived in the nicest apartment on Upper East Side with Dad, my sister, Alice, and Gran. I'm enrolled at the prestigious Cornwell Prep School, a school that I got into because of my last name rather than my grades. One of the many perks of being Edward Cullen.

I got away with shit because I was a Cullen, a name that was envied and respected by the society. My life was perfect. At least it used to be perfect. When one day a certain someone waltzed into my family and took away the most important thing in my life, things began to go downhill. And what would that be, you may ask?

My legacy.

A/N: I realize the prologue is a bit short but I didn't want to give away too much information. I promise the chapters will be much longer than this:) I'm really excited about this story since it's very different from "Welcome to Drama Academy". I'd been working with WTDA's Edward and Bella for so long... It's nice to develop a new ExB relationship!

Please review. The first chapter will be posted really soon. Thanks for reading:)
