Esme POV

"Welcome to Forks, Washington."

I've never been so happy to see a sign in my life. I felt like I been running my whole life. Sadly, I had to drag my girls with me to protect them. We moved and moved and moved. I wasn't going to take a chance of him showing up.

My ex husband Charles abused and rape me. I never let him touch my children. I beg him to hurt me instead. I hated Charles. I never loved him. He was a sick bastard that I hope dies in hell. I was force to marry him to make my parents happy. Biggest mistake ever!

We had our first daughter, Rosalie Lillian, in our second year of marriage. I was afraid of having Rose. I loved her to death, but if Charles hurt her I would never forgive my self.

Rosalie is now 17 with blond hair and blue eyes. Her beauty stuns others. Rosalie doesn't care to talk about her past. She actually hardly talks to me. Rose doesn't like having to move and we don't see eye to eye.

Rosalie was a year old when I had Marie Alice. She likes to go by Alice though. Alice has black hair which now she cut it to like a pixie. She has brown eyes and is bone skinny. Alice is my little shopper and is a little wild one. She 16 years old.

Isabella Marie was my niece. My sister and her husband was in a car accident and died. I took Bella when she was four months old. Charles disagreed with my actions. He told me to take her to a orphanage but I was too close to my niece and loved her dearly like my own.

Bella is a healthy 15 year old now. She has beautiful brown hair and brown eyes. Bella always looks up to me as her mother and calls me mom. I adopted her and I feel as if she was my biological daughter.

Clara Elizabeth is my last child. Clara was a mistake. She wasn't really suppose to come and when she did Charles was furious. Mainly because we learn when Clara was three that she had leukemia. Clara is what made me run away from Charles and taking my other children with me too.

Clara 13 now and almost 14. Clara is a spited image of myself. She has my dark green color eyes and curly caramel hair that she wore straight most days. Right now she doesn't have any hair.

We just arrived in a little town called Forks, Washington. It's been a week and the girls will be starting school. I got a job at the Waffle house as waitress.

"Rosalie! Bella! Alice! Clara!" I called out. "Your going to be late!" The girls weren't thrilled about starting in a new school.

Bella came tumbling down the stairs with her bag on her back. She wore a t shirt with a red hoddie, sneakers, and her hair was down. Bella never like to draw attention to herself.

Rose came after her. She had on black lace silk button up shirt, black tights, and boots. Rosalie was proud of her beauty. She glared at me. I knew she was mad at me.

My Clara was next. Wearing a white shirt with a black scarf, dark skinny jeans, and black flats. She also wore a black binnie. My poor baby wasn't feeling good and that would explain why she wearing comfortable clothing.

Alice still had not came. I sighed. Alice could spend an hour getting ready.

"Marie Alice Platt!" I shouted.

"Coming!" She argued.

Shortly after, she came down wearing a black short sleeve dress with black tights and black high heels. Alice was always the fashionable one.

I fed the girls breakfast and then drove them to school.

"Have a good day." I told when we reach to the front of the school building.

"Whatever." Rosalie growled and got out of the car. What happen to my sweet Rosie who cried when I drop her off at school? Time flies I guess and now she hates me.

"Bye mom!" Alice kiss my cheek.

"Bye." Bella said and kiss my cheek also.

Once they got, I turn to Clara. I knew she was nervous about starting 9th grade and to be around high schoolers.

"Ready?" I ask her.

"What if they don't like me." She let out a huge breath.

"They will love you baby!" I hated seeing my my daughter so stress.

She nodded her head and gave me a kiss on the cheek.

"Don't worry dear." I said. "If you start not feeling well or want to come home then call me, ok?"

"Ok. I love you."

"I love you too." I said to her.

Clara gave me a small smile and got out of the car. She ran to catch up with the others. Clara turn back and waved at me. I waved back and drove to work.

This life... I thought.
