AN: Here's a little snippet of my new story. Glass is the priority right now, but this will be posted regularly starting in February. Thanks to my beta, toocute24, for once again making sense of my nonsense.

I sat down and flipped through the mail that Carmen had left on the table for me. I gasped when I came across some familiar handwriting that I hadn't seen in five years.

I took my cup of coffee and the letter, and walked out to sit on my deck. Once I was comfortable, I slid my finger under the flap and slowly opened the envelope before extracting the paper within. Taking a deep breath, I began to read.

Dear Bella,

I know it's been a while since you've heard from me, and I'm sorry for that. When things between us went sour, I thought that it would be easier to cut you out completely. Easier for whom, I'm not sure. It certainly hasn't been easy for me. I think of you every day and wish that things could have been different, but I have come to realize that I was at fault for what happened between us.

Enough dwelling in the past, though. I heard that you are taking a break from the industry, and I hope that this letter finds you well. A project has fallen in my lap to write a song for a benefit for the Cullen Foundation. Yes, my mother and father have started it, but it was my uncle that made the request.

The song that I have written needs a woman to sing it. Unfortunately, I know no other female singers with the voice to pull it off. My point is that I was hoping that you would be willing to sing with me... for old time's sake. If you are willing, I will be in the studio on Saturday all day, laying down the tracks. I hope to see you.


I sat back and let the tears flow down my cheeks as I thought about the man and the past. I was soon lost in memories and wishful thinking.

AN: Here is the beginning. Let me know what you think.
