Chapter 1

Begins in New Moon when Edward is in the forest with Bella.

Bella POV

"Bella, we are leaving."

"Okay, what do I tell Charlie? When are we leaving? Where.."

I couldn't continue with the look that he was giving me.

"When you say we you mean."

"The Cullens. My family and I. Everyone is starting to question our ages, especially Carlisle." DUH, how could I have been so oblivous.

"What about us? What about you and me?" Was this not obvious to him? Do vampires have like brain farts? Vampires don't forget, he had to have known that I would bring it up, sooner or later.

"I'm sorry Bella. But you need to move on with your life. Find a human, fall in love, have kids, and grow old. Live a normal life."

"Why? You said.."

"I don't want you anymore Bella."

"You don't want me?" I always expected this to happen, but I still couldn't grasp that he was leaving me, after all the times he said he never would and he loved me.

"No" That was all I needed to know.

"Goodbye then Edward. I hope you enjoy the rest of your existence." I said with a smirk.

He just stood there obviously surprised by my reaction. Good to know I still did the unexpected, because that's exactly what I had in mind.

I was so busy plotting that I hadn't realized he left. Oh well, I'll see him again. Oh yes I will.

So, enough plotting I guess. I have to go back home and talk to Charlie sooner or later. Later, I guess. Nah, I have to be nice and respectful to my father. Sooner I guess, darn.

"Hey, dad." Oh, I was about to call him Charlie to his face, but that would only make the situation worse. I think. Not to clear on Charlie. He seems way more perceptive as each day passes.

"Hey, Bells. What are you up to?" He knows me so well, if only he figured out about the Cullen's sooner.

"Would it be okay if I went shopping at Port Angeles tomorrow?" Best get to the point I guess.

"Well. Tomorrow is Saturday, so that's fine. Who are you going with? The Cullen's?"

"No, dad. They moved away. And they said they aren't going to move back. So I'll probably never see them again." Truth. Too bad this didn't hurt.

"Oh, did you get to say goodbye?"

"Only to Edward. It was a sudden move, Carlisle got another job opportunity in California, and Esme really wanted to be somewhere warm. So they moved."

"Oh. I'm sorry."

"It's okay dad. I'd like to go shopping alone. Some me myself and I time, you know?"

"Yes, that sounds good. But please be careful, and remember the pepper spray I gave you. You can never be too careful these days."

"I will dad, thanks."

"No problem, it's not like I'll ever have another Bells" Emotion, I like it. It hurts or helps, and now it's going to help me.

"See you later, Bells. Be safe and have fun."

"I will dad. See you tonight for dinner"

"Can't wait" If I ever leave he will starve to death before he even figures out how to use the microwave. I should teach him the basics of cooking someday soon.

The mall. The one place I used to dread going. now wiht my own opinions and totally unique style in mind, it all of a sudden didn't seem that bad. But there was this one lady that did the horrible slow mall walk thing that I hate. She walked straight down the middle of the aisle with two huge shopping carts and was constantly stopping blocking everyone. And when she was moving, well lets just say the turtle won that race easy peasy. And then all of sudden she turned around and looked straight into my eyes. i kept thinking please leave me alone and leave. And like magic, she just whispered I think I'll leave and walked away. A sprint compared to her previous speed.

That couldn't have been a coincidence, so I decided to test it out a bit. My day was fun. I got five different guys to move from their tables, and got one of them to go into the ladies restroom. Best prank ever, BTW. Your welcome.

That was amateur hour. I decided, why pay for things when people wanted you to have them for free? Good question. Not only did I get a whole new wardrobe that Alice would not approve or but would like the size of it, it was totally free. Take that Alice.

Not only that though. Another slow poke lady (Port Angeles = slow old ladies) pulled right in front of my baby (my truck. DUH). I kept trying to use my power to get her to move, but apparently I have to be looking into the persons eye for it to get them to do what I want. Stupid drawback that had to come eventually. So i just got so angry and all of a sudden she was screaming in pain. Oh my god. I'm just like Jane, except I'm only human. That's what I was forgeting. I have to find and get a vampire to change me. Easy, Victoria.

The old Bella that got hurt by love is gone.

The new Izy that uses pain and power to help herself is coming to Forks.

All you vampires out there better watch yourselves.
