Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight...
I have decided to re-write this whole story. So, here is the new and improved Divorce or Affair!
I never thought that life could be so cruel. But I guess I deserved it. I've made so many mistakes in my life. My biggest mistake was cheating on my ex-girlfriend, Bella Swan. Just thinking her name hurts. Bella Swan was the daughter of Chief Swan. He was the chief of police in our hometown, Forks. A small town in Washington. She moved back to Forks in the middle of 10th grade. Bella wanted to give her mother and step father some space. I remember the first time I saw her.
~ Flashback ~
I was talking with Jasper and Emmett about our next baseball game. We were interrupted by a loud noise. We all turned and saw a rusty Chevy truck parking a few feet away from us. We all shared a look. It was uncommon for a new student to arrive in Forks. Our town was small and it rained constantly. Everyone in the parking lot was looking at the newcomer's truck. We were all wondering if it was a girl or boy.
The truck door opened. Out came the most beautiful girl I have ever seen. She had a heart shaped face, chocolate brown hair that ended below her waist, chocolate brown eyes, and full pink lips. She was a goddess. I saw that other guys were also blown away by her beauty.
When her eyes met mine, I couldn't look away. She wasn't watching where she was going because she tripped over Mike Newton's feet. I ran to her and caught her before she hit the ground. I pulled her up and set her on her feet. She turned to look at me and blushed. Even her blush was beautiful.
"Thank you." She said.
God! She sounded so perfect. I must've been staring at her without noticing because I heard someone clear their throat. I shook my head and let her go. I looked at Jasper and Emmett. They had smiles on their faces. I also saw Mike Newton was glaring at me and Jessica Stanley was glaring at her.
I finally said "You're welcome. You should be careful next time."
She blushed again. I chuckled quietly. I saw Alice and Rosalie walking towards us. Alice looked happy to see the new student. Rosalie, on the other hand, looked like she wanted to rip the new girl apart. I sighed. Rosalie has got to be the most conceited girl I have ever met. Next to the other blonde bimbos in the school.
Mike Newton raised his hand to her and said "Hi! My name is Mike Newton."
"Nice to meet you." The girl shook his hand.
Jessica pushed Mike away and said. "My name is Jessica Stanley. What's your name?"
"I'm Isabella Swan. But I like to be called Bella."
"Are you related to Chief Swan?"
"Yes. He's my father."
Our eyes widened. Bella was Chief Swan's daughter? Since when did he have a daughter? I looked at everyone else. They were as shocked as I was. Wow! This was big news.
"Oh. Wow. We never knew that Chief Swan had a daughter."
"I was born in Forks. But when my mom and dad got a divorce, she took me with her. I only visited my dad during the summers. But I stopped when I was 14."
"So, why did you come back?"
"My mother got remarried. I decided to give her and my step dad some time alone."
Mike decided to interrupt. "Hey. I'm sorry about making you fall."
"It's alright. I'm very clumsy. So, I tend to trip a lot."Bella said.
Emmett bursted out laughing. We all looked at him. That wasn't funny. Rosalie and Alice hit him in the back of the head. He yelped and rubbed his head. He turned to Bella and gave her a smile. She just chuckled.
"I'm sorry for laughing. But, I found it funny."
"Emmett!" We all yelled.
"No. It's fine. I've been told that my clumsiness is very funny. I don't mind him laughing." Bella said.
"Ha! She likes me! Oh! By the way, I'm Emmett Cullen. This is my girlfriend, Rosalie Hale. Her twin brother, Jasper Hale. His girlfriend and my little sister, Alice Cullen. And the one who saved you is my little brother, Eddie."
I groaned. Emmett just had to embarrass me in front of Bella. I heard her laugh quietly. I gave her my famous crooked smile. She blushed. I would never get tired of seeing that blush on her beautiful cheeks.
"Emmett, I told you not to call me that. Sorry about that. My brother is an idiot." I said.
"Hey! I resent that!" Emmett yelled.
"Who cares? Anyway, my real name is Edward. Not Eddie."
Bella giggled and said "Nice to meet you. And thanks for saving me."
I was knocked away by a certain hyper pixie. I glared at my sister. She just gave me a big smile. I chuckled. My sister is always smiling. She turned to Bella and pulled her into a hug. Bella just stayed still. Alice stepped away from her and still had a big smile on her face.
"Hi. I'm Alice."
"It's very nice to meet you. And I know we're going to be great friends." Alice said.
Bella laughed and said "You're a very cheery full person, Alice."
"That I am."
We all laughed. Alice was rarely to be found sad. She was always hyper and happy. I noticed that Rosalie was the only one who hadn't introduced herself to Bella. Emmett noticed too. He gave her a look. She just rolled her eyes and left. Jessica and Mike also left. Bella stayed quiet. I wanted to curse Rosalie out. She had hurt Bella's feelings.
"Don't worry about her." I said.
"Yeah. She just doesn't like newcomers." Jasper said.
"Oh. Ok. Well, I have to go get my schedule."
Alice grabbed Bella's arm. She handed Bella her schedule. How the hell did she do that? Everyone was as confused as I was. Including Bella. My sister was a very mysterious person. She knew about everyone and everything.
"H-how did you get my schedule."
"I asked Mrs. Cope to give it to me. So! You have English, Spanish, Lunch, and Gym with Jasper, Emmett, and Rosalie. But you have every class with Edward and I. Oh! You have to sit with us during lunch." Alice replied.
"Sure. I'll sit with you guys."
Alice squealed. We covered out ears. Did I mention that she was extremely loud? She could break glass if she wanted to. Alice started jumping up and down. Jasper grabbed her before she scared Bella away. Emmett and I chuckled.
"Bella, what do you have first period?" I asked.
Before Bella could reply, Alice said. "English!"
Bella smiled. "English."
Emmett started laughing. I shook my head. We all started walking to class. Looks like Emmett found a new friend to share jokes with. Bella made everyone laugh. I'm glad that she was here. She was the only girl that I was attracted to. Hopefully, I'll have the courage to ask her.
~ Flashback ends ~
On the last day of school, I finally asked Bella out. She said yes and we became a couple. We stayed together for almost two years. A few months before graduating, Bella and I broke up. She had found out that I had cheated on her with Karen Hunter. That was the worst day of my life.
~ Flashback ~
"Edward, can we talk?" Bella asked.
I wondered what she wanted to talk about. I saw that she was holding something a brown folder. Why did that folder look familiar?
"Sure." I said.
"Edward, do you love me?"
"Of course I do. Why wouldn't I?"
"Its just…..someone told me something that I didn't think was true. But then I found this folder in my locker. When I looked inside the folder, I found these…."
Bella stopped talking. I didn't understand what she was talking about. She took out pictures and handed them to me. I cursed Karen to hell. I knew immediately what the pictures were. They were of me and Karen almost having sex at a party.
"Bella, please let me explain."
"What is there to explain? You fucking cheated on me, Edward. I trusted you. And what do you do? You go behind my back and sleep with that fucking whore!"
"Bella, please! I'm sorry. It was an accident. I-I-I got drunk and then I don't know what happened after that."
Bella started crying. I noticed there was a crowd surrounding us. Emmett, Alice, and Jasper were also part of the crowd. They all know the truth about what happened that night. They were the ones who pulled Karen off me and proceeded to yell at me. They knew that I didn't plan on going to the party because Bella was sick.
But when they found out that I was drunk, they knew that Karen had done something to get me like this. They took me home. I started crying when I realized what I almost did. They stayed with me until I felt better. I shook my head. I tried to comfort Bella but she slapped me in the face. I heard the gasps of everyone. No one would ever think that Bella and I would be in this mess.
"Bella-" I was cut off.
"Edward, WE'RE OVER!" Bella shouted
My heart was shattered into a million pieces. I watched as she ran away crying. I can't believe this. I lost her. I fell onto my knees. Emmett, Jasper, and Alice came over to comfort me. I lost her. I lost my soul mate. And all because of Karen. She was the reason I broke Bella's heart. Oh god! I broke Bella's heart.
"I broke Bella's heart." I whispered.
"Oh, Edward. We're sorry." Alice whispered.
"It's my fault. I should've told her about this."
"Edward, it's not your fault." Emmett said.
I put my head in my hands and cried. I cried for Bella. I cried for myself. I cried for our broken hearts.
~ Flashback ends ~
I was never the same after the break up. I stayed in my room the whole time. I stopped playing the piano. I couldn't bring myself to even touch it today. I still had it but never played it. I barely ate or spoke. I threw myself into my school work. There was nothing else I could do. Bella was ignoring me. It was bad that we had every class together. The last time I saw her was on graduation.
Emmett, Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, and I went to the same college. I didn't date anymore. But I had no clue why to give Karen a chance. I mean, she's the reason Bella and I broke up. I thought I'd be happy with her but everything we talk about always ends with a fight. A few months later, we got married. After we graduated, we had two children named Lucas and Hailey. I love them more than Karen. When they were little, she used to hit them. I found out when I came home one day. Lucas and Hailey were 8 and 6 at the time.
~ Flashback ~
God! I wish I could go home and rest without fighting. I mean, Karen's a great person. Ok. Who am I kidding? She's a bitch and gets drunk all the time. We always fight when I get home. Working 24 hours at the hospital is tiring. I sighed. Nothing ever changes with her. I'm still wondering why I married her.
I got out of my car. I walked up the porch. I stopped when I heard my children screaming and glass breaking. What the hell is going on? I rushed to open the door. But when I did, I was greeted by the sight of a drunken Karen breaking family photos and glass. I grabbed her arms. She pushed me away then slapped me with a piece of glass. I winced. I felt the blood running down my cheek.
"Karen, what the hell are you doing?" I asked.
"Where were you?" she responded angrily.
"I was working. We need money to feed the children and keep the house. But, you have to waste it on SHIT WE DON'T EVEN NEED!"
"I HATE YOU! I HAVE NO CLUE WHY I MARRIED YOU! AND BEER IS NOT SHIT! MEDICAL STUFF IS SHIT!"
My mother raised me to be a gentleman. To never lay a hand on a woman. But Karen was testing my patience. So, I slapped her. I didn't feel guilty for doing it. Karen screamed. She grabbed her coat and walked to the door. There was a beep outside.
"My rides here. So don't expect me to come home later." Karen spat.
And with that said, she left. I ran a hand through my hair. I looked at the mess she made. It would take a few hours to clean up the broken glass. I sighed. I looked at my children. They weren't crying anymore. I walked over to them and pulled them into a hug. They wrapped their arms around me.
"You guys alright?" I asked.
"No." Lucas answered.
I pulled away and looked at them. "What's wrong?"
"Mommy hurt us." Hailey cried.
I saw cuts and bruises on their arms and legs. I started getting angry. Why would Karen do this to them? To her own children? Stupid drunk ass bitch. I wish she was here so I could punch the shit out of her.
"Has she done this before?''
"Why did you tell me?" I asked angrily.
"She said she would kill us if we said anything to you." Lucas started crying.
"Daddy, we wanted to tell you but we were afraid. We're sorry." Hailey also cried.
I pulled them back into a hug. I cried with them. None of this would've happened if I married Karen. But if I never married her, I wouldn't have Hailey and Lucas. I know that if Bella was their mother, they would have a better life. I stopped crying and looked at them. I wiped their tears away.
"Kids, everything will be fine. I'm going to have a talk with her."
Hailey and Lucas nodded. I kissed their foreheads.
~ Flashback ends ~
When Karen came back, I yelled at her. She just said that the kids deserved it. I called her a bitch and went to get the kids. We stayed with Carlisle and Esme. Three weeks later, Karen came over and said that she completely changed for us. I wasn't fooled. Two days before Hailey's 7th birthday, Karen went back to her old ways. And even today she's still the same.
I wish I could change the past and be with Bella again. Then everything would be alright. I would've been happily married to her. Have children. A nice house. I would be able to hug and kiss her when I came home from work. Wake up to seeing her in my arms. Making love to her when we got the chance. But I know that was never going to happen.
This was the first Twilight story I have ever written. I will be re-writing my other stories too.
I'll update soon.
