So here is the requested full story of "You don't bring me flowers anymore."


Let me be your hero

Would you dance
If I asked you to dance?
Would you run
And never look back?
Would you cry
If you saw me cry?
And would you save my soul, tonight?

Would you tremble
If I touched your lips?
Would you laugh?
Oh please tell me this.
Now would you die
For the one you loved?
Hold me in your arms, tonight.

I can be your hero, baby.
I can kiss away the pain.
I will stand by you forever.
You can take my breath away.

Would you swear
That you'll always be mine?
Or would you lie?
Would you run and hide?
Am I in too deep?
Have I lost my mind?
I don't care...
You're here tonight.

I can be your hero, baby.
I can kiss away the pain.
I will stand by you forever.
You can take my breath away.

Oh, I just want to hold you.
I just want to hold you.
Am I in too deep?
Have I lost my mind?
I don't care...
You're here tonight.

I can be your hero, baby.
I can kiss away the pain.
I will stand by your forever.
You can take my breath away.

I can be your hero.
I can kiss away the pain.
And I will stand by you forever.
You can take my breath away.
You can take my breath away.

I can be your hero



College Frat Party


God I hate these things. Usually I find a way to get out of going but my roommate, Emmet begged and pleaded till I gave in. So here I am drinking a warm flat beer by myself while Emmet plays tonsil hockey with his latest girlfriend, Rosalie.

The music was thudding loudly and I was starting to get a headache. I moved across the room to the sliding door.

Peace at last on the back deck. The deck was a trash fest tonight so was pretty much empty. The only reason I had ever joined this fraternity was because it would look good to the guys who would one day hire me in New York. Sigma Beta was the most prestigious fraternity in the USA.

I was counting the days till the end of the school year when I could finally move out into my own flat. My father Carlisle was helping me pay for a flat off-campus now that I was starting my graduate law program. Emmett was moving in with me so I doubted I would get away from the party scene completely.

The beer was disgusting so I threw the rest of it over the balcony and leaned against the railing to get a look at the stars.

That's when I heard the sound of someone crying nearby.

Shit I guess I had to go and have a look. My mom Esme would kill me if I just left someone in trouble.

A girl with long brown hair was sitting on the ground next to some bushes. Her back was turned to me but I could see her shoulders shaking.


How could that bastard do this to me tonight of all nights? I was sitting shaking as angry tears flowed down my cheeks. Tonight should have been a celebration of making a whole year together. I loved him and he told me that I wasn't the right kind of girl he should be dating now that he is a frat brother. I even helped him to get into the fraternity with my brother Emmett's help and thanks I get is being dumped. I feel so stupid.

I jumped at the sound of footsteps behind me.

"Hi I didn't mean to startle you but are you okay?"

"Now I am not alright. You are one of them." I pointed accusingly at the ring on his finger.

He sighed and ran a hand through his hair.

"What did one of them do to you?"

"One of them? No way it's all of you. I have seen the way you guys act around women. You only go for the gorgeous cheerleader type girls and they have to be blonde. What is wrong with women like me that we just get thrown aside like yesterdays garbage?"

"Woaw you are generalising a bit there don't you think? Not all of us are complete assholes."

I stood up and looked at him. Something about him was familiar.

"Sorry you are right. My brother Emmett is a good guy."

"You are Emmett's baby sister. I thought I recognised you. My name is Edward. I am your brother's roommate."

"Of course you are Edward. Emmett did point you out the other day. So where is my crazy brother?"

"Playing tonsil hockey with one of those blondes you were talking about."

"I thought his girlfriend was a brunette."

"Wow you are behind the times. That was Lauren and he broke it off with her last week. This is Rosalie and she is the current love of his life."

I laughed Emmett was always claiming the girl he was with was the one for him.

"So Bella what happened tonight?'

"Tyler the guy I have been dating for a whole year dumped me because I am not the kind of girl that works well for his new frat brother image."

I was instantly seething again.

"Ouch that's harsh. Well he is a stupid dick because you are the most real and beautiful girl I have seen all night."

I turned to look at him stunned.


I was telling the truth but I did not mean to let out quite what an effect she was having on me. Shit this was Emmett's baby sister I could never have feelings for her. He would kill me in a second. Trouble is she really was stunning and from what Emmett had told me she was a pre-med student so she was bright as well.

"Thanks Edward that was really sweet of you to say that."

"I meant it Bella you are stunning. Don't ever sell yourself short."

Where was all this coming from?

"I should find Emmett and get him to walk me back to my dorm. He won't let me walk around campus alone at night."

"He is right there are some real bad guys around. I will take you to Emmett."

We walked into the mass of bodies and beer. The smell was overwhelming. I eventually spotted Emmett on a couch with Rosalie.

I also saw that new guy Tyler making out with Tanya one of the real campus sluts. I tried to move so Bella wouldn't see but she did.

"Give me a second Bella. Just stay here okay."

I walked to Emmett and explained what Tyler had done and that Bella really wanted to go home now.

"That little shit I am going to beat him within an inch of his life. I help him get in here and then he dumps Bells and their one year anniversary."

One year shit that really was harsh. I looked back at Bella standing in the corner trying to stop the tears and my heart broke for her. What the hell was happening? Why did I want to snap Tyler's neck and protect her from all hurt in the world? I only just met her.

"Well she wants to leave now."

Emmett looked at Rosalie and sighed. I knew he wanted to stay.

"Don't stress bro, let me walk her home. You know I hate these things anyway."

"Thanks man I really owe you." Relief was in his eyes.

"Yeah I will add it to your bill."

I walked back to Bella.

"Come on let's go. I told Emmett I would walk you home."

"Thanks Edward you really are a good guy."

As we walked out of the door a put my arm around her without thinking.

She leant into me and let go of all the tears she was holding back.

We walked slowly back to her dorm and by the time we got there she was breathing normally and the crying had stopped.

"Thank you so much Edward. I am sorry I have been such a sob story tonight."

"You had every right to be upset Bella. Emmett told me that tonight was your one year anniversary. You expected romance and instead you got him with that slut Tanya."

"Yeah I really did get kicked tonight. So she is a slut huh?"

"Easiest girl there is. I think she has been with nearly every male on campus. I don't get it she looks like plastic but I guess if you offer most guys will take."

"Very true that. So she doesn't interest you then?"

"No I like girls to have brains and real beauty."

I nearly said like you but stopped myself.

"High standards then."

She was teasing me.

"Very high."

"I should get inside there is a bucket of Ben &Jerrys with my name on it."

"Don't morn him for too long Bella. He isn't worth your time."

"Thanks again Edward. I hope I see you around campus soon."

"I would like that Bella."

I leant in and kissed the top of her head.

"Goodnight Bella."

"Goodnight Edward."


I closed the door and raced up the stairs to my room.

I should be feeling sad but all I could feel was a rush I had never felt before.

The top of my head tingled where he had kissed me.

Instead of crying I was trying to think of reasons to see Edward again and very soon.

Okay so the story of the day they met. There will be big time jumps in this story but I wanted to really tell their story and I wanted to tell it from the beginning.

All chapters in this story will be based on songs so if you have any favourites or ideas please let me know.
