A/N: Well, hello there! Thanks for checking this out. First, you should know that this is a story based on the movie, "Life As We Know It", which came out in 2010. It's a great movie, and if you're into romantic comedies I would definitely recommend it. Secondly, this is my first Edward/Bella multi-chapter story, so here's to hoping it'll be a good one. Edward and Bella are in their mid-twenties and living on their own. The rest will be determined in later chapters.

My first thought after hearing the news was one of utter despair.

No, not them. Why did it have to be them?

They had only been twenty-four years old. I didn't understand it. They had been happy. Maybe not completely, but they had their family, their friends, not to mention their ultimate dream jobs. And more than that, they had Ezzy, their vibrant, beautiful one-year-old daughter.

How could the world be so cruel as to take away two wonderful parents from their newborn child?

It was immoral. Absolutely outrageous. And the injustice didn't simply stop there.

Ezzy had not only just lost both of her parents, but my best friend was gone. The one person who I could always turn to in times of struggle was no longer with me, and I couldn't figure out why. Why did it have to happen like this?

I now had no one to keep me from falling, no one to stand by my side and support me through it all. For the first time in my life, I was entirely aloneā€¦and hopelessly afraid.

There was nothing I could do to stop myself. I fell to the floor and wept.

Just to let you know in case you were wondering, Ezzy is short for Esmeralda. Thought it was a cute name for Alice and Jasper's baby! Please leave me a review to let me know what you think. Thanks. :)
