It was nice to be alone, not to have to smile and look pleased; a relief to stare dejectedly out the window at the sheeting rain and let just a few tears escape.-

Authors Note: This is a Tanya/Bella story as they've become my favorite pairing so far. I shall try and update frequently but for now, here's the prologue.

Real chapters will be much longer!


~Prologue~

Bella POV:

Moving to Forks wasn't my first option. But at the moment it was the only one that I had left. Renee was obviously unhappy with my decision to leave her but it was for her own sake. Renee had found her other half, Phil. Phil being a baseball player had to travel quite often and I could tell Renee longed to join him on his trips.

It pained me to watch my mother silently cry herself to sleep on some nights, her heart aching with longing.

So I decided to move in with Charlie, my father. I hadn't seen Charlie since I was five years old. I used to spend every summer in Forks but after a while my visits became less and less frequent until one summer I decided to not go. I didn't go any summer after that either.

So that is how I came to be here, standing in my new bedroom. The deep purple curtains flowing in the breeze as I stood next to the window watching the rain slip out of the sky.

I hated wet places. Me being as clumsy as I was it really wasn't a good idea for me to be around wet and slippery objects. I really hoped there was a hospital close by because I knew I would probably be showing up there at least twice a month.

Sighing I turned around and collapsed onto my bed. The covers surrounding me and I closed my eyes and let a few tears slip out.

Forks matched my mood.
