"Talking"-"Signing"-'thoughts'


Bella POV

"We're leaving, Bella," Edward stated coldly. He had asked me to take a walk with him into the forest in my backyard. We usually go there, so I wasn't worried until he said the heart rendering words.

"Okay, let me go get my bags to pack," I pleaded. 'Why didn't they tell me before? I could've been ready by now and have left. What about Charlie?' I thought.

"No. We are leaving without you. You were nothing but a toy, Bella. You are a human. You are worthless and nothing. We are going away," Edward explained in the same apathetic voice. The words shattered my heart, again. "Our family doesn't want you and never will. We never loved you; you were just an amusement to us."

"Please, Edward don't leave. I need you. I don't want to be..." I trailed off. My once lover never showed any trace of emotion.

"Goodbye, Isabella. I will promise you one thing: You will never hear of me ever again. I will just be a mere passing memory," the vampire promised. "Yet I still ask you to promise me that you won't do anything reckless. Farewell, Miss Swan."

And with those words he left me. He left me in the forest. He left me with a broken, shattered heart. I stood there processing what just happened, then I collapsed sobbing harder than before.

Hours passed, but the tears did not stop. I knew others would come looking for me, but I didn't want to see them. Let them come.

"Bella? Bella Swan? Is that you?" a voice asked as I lay on the forest floor crying my broken heart out. I didn't respond because I didn't hear him. Not a word, sound, or anything. I looked up to see a native man from the reservation looking a me. I didn't know what to do, so I just stated at him with confused eyes. "Oh right! You're non-hearing. What do I do?" he mumbled to himself.

He started to move slowly towards me. When he touched me, I screamed so loud that the people on the reservation must have heard. Memories of the ones who hated me and showed me their disgust through their actions. More people ran into where I was. 'They won't hurt you. Bella, quit being silly! These people are your family. Go to Charlie,' I scolded myself.

"Charlie!" I shouted. I needed him now. I curled into a fetal position and rocked myself back and forth waiting. Just waiting for my second family to return. Waiting for my father to get here. Waiting for my life to be over.

Suddenly a pair of warm, strong arms wrapped themselves around me. I tensed a bit, then realized who it was. ''Charlie,'' I sighed.

''Baby, what happened? Are you alright? We have to get you home,'' Charlie responded.

''Daddy, he left. They left. I loved them, but they didn't want me. I am useless,'' I signed sadly.

''Come on, honey, let's go home,'' my father responded. I fell asleep in his arms as he walked me home.


I felt something shake me gently. I awoke groggily. The memories of what happened in the forest came rushing back and my eyes filled with tears. My father embraced me as a cried. He cooed softly to me, even though he knew I wouldn't see him speak.

"Bella, I am Doctor Gerandy. I have to look you over, okay?" the doctor said calmly after I had stopped sobbing. I just nodded to him.

A few minutes later, the doctor declared me fine physically, but not emotionally and mentally. He probably thought that I'd go catatonic or become depressed, yet the sad thing is that he was right.

"Dad?'' I sighed to get my father's attention.

''What's wrong, Bella?'' Charlie asked me immediately.

''I am tired. Can I go to bed?''

''Of course.''

I went up there stairs slowly and fell asleep. Nightmares of Edward leaving and the torturers haunted me every single night. Charlie stopped trying to wake me up because it never worked.

I slowly crept into my deep depression...again.

This is the second time I became depressed. The first was due to me becoming deaf, tortures on myself, and not accepting what is happening. It hurt my family a lot the first time. I needed a place to escape, and my mind was the best. How could I survive a second one?
