“Dad, I swear I’m out hunting, I’ll be back as soon as I can! I can try to find her!” meanwhile I’d jumped up from the ground, already walking back in the direction I’d come from.

“Melody, no, It’s too risky! Can you imagine what happens when you go running and searching for her, pure on instinct? You still can’t completely control your thirst and you could easily…kill…her if you’d find her. Especially after you just hunted. I’m forbidding you! You are going to finish what you need to do, and then I want you to come home. Safe and secure please.” Charlie’s stern voice had made me halt. he was right, even though my stubborn nature wanted nothing more than to search for Bella. I was fast, strong and if something happened to her I could easily fight it off.

I sighed. “Fine. I’ll see you later.” And with that I broke the connection. I started to feel aggressive again, feeling my muscles strain underneath the soft skin. Where was she? Had she hurt herself? Had someone else did something to her? Was she injured? I didn’t know, I hated not knowing it. we might fight a lot but she still was my sister. And if someone, something touched her I’d protect her just as much as I’d do with my other siblings.

Where the fuck was Alice when you needed her?

The aggressiveness was back in my system, clouding my rational mind and before I knew it I was sprinting through the forest again. I didn’t know where I was heading as my feet forcefully hit the ground, making me rush forward. At one point, I suddenly changed course. I felt like I was pulled by something, like I needed to go there. Maybe it was the place where I could find Bella.

I kept running not thinking, just giving in on my instinct. After a vast ten minutes, I started to recognize my surroundings. It couldn’t be. I slowed my pace as I saw the familiar Victorian Cullen estate still standing proudly as the light of the moon shone down on it. there was the nagging feeling again, but also still the pull towards it.

The lights were still on. There must be someone inside.

Curious and desperate to know if they were still here, I walked up to the house. Firstly, I passed the garage but no cars were found there. when I walked further and glanced through the windows, disappointment eluded me. yes, the lights were on, but the house seemed abandoned and all pieces of furniture were covered with brattice.

They were really gone.


The realization hit. I’d thought about it, but never really expected. They weren’t here anymore, not in Forks. They’d left me behind. I panicked again, my breathing started to hitch and the damned tears streamed down once again. the thick warm, salty droplets were starting to anger me. I hated crying, I was tired of it.

“Why…why, why? Why did you leave me? I need you? I can’t live without you…why…?” I sobbed and whimpered falling down on my knees. it started raining and before I knew it I was soaked true the bone.

But I didn’t care. They’d left me. Nothing mattered. He left me. Just when I needed him the most. I’d always need him by my side. To cheer me up or make me laugh. Even to fight against. I couldn’t imagine a life without him, but it was happening.

And I couldn’t stop it.

Another heart-wrenching sob left my chest as I lay there curled up like a ball in the front yard. I didn’t care that the gravels stones were sticking in my flesh. I didn’t care I’d get a vast cold, sneezing like madness.

Nothing bothered me anymore.


Suddenly, I heard sound from behind me. it was a twig-break. Someone was here with me.

I crawled upwards from the ground, waiting for the most rational reaction. But it never came. I wasn’t scared or afraid. Instead I felt completely safe. I tried to find out whom it was, because I was sure it was a human being or a vampire.

I gasped when I wasn’t able to read its mind.


My breaths were heavy, even I could hear the deep sound through the deafening silence of the moonlit night. I didn’t dare to turn around and face him. the hairs on my neck were standing straight while the shivers shot down my spine, making me one trembling mess.

Seconds go by, feeling like hours before I calmed myself thus enough to turn around. Eyes closed, I willed my body to turn towards him. slowly opening them, my lids fluttered, wanting to make sure this wasn’t my imagination.

And there he was. He, Edward, my immortal, my secret love. It was dark, maybe a tad too dark, but I could easily make out his frame and pale-white skin. I gasped when I saw the diamonds covering his skin, as the moonlight shone down on him.

He just stood there, his jeans were torn on several places while his shirt couldn’t be called ‘whole’ anymore. His facial expression made my heart pang again, because it looked even more torn than his clothes.

We were standing, in the Cullen front yard, just staring at each other, trying to control or breathing. I heard his shallow breaths all too clearly, but didn’t understand why.

After a while, he offered up to walk into my direction. Every step he took made me ask more questions.

What was going on? Why was he here, right at this precise moment? Where was Bella? Where were the others? What had he done?

My head swirled when he came to a stop right in front of me. it was silent again, tense.


“E-Ed-w-ward..” I stuttered, the tears were still streaming down in flow down the soft cushions of my pinked cheeks.

“Melody..” he sighed, holding up his hand, like he wanted to touch me, but didn’t.


“Edward, please tell me what’s going on! I’m feeling so distraught about all this…Where’s Bella? Where are the others? Please!” I pleaded, my golden eyes trying to convince him to tell me the truth. He didn’t say anything.

“Please?” I begged again, laying my wet, ice cold hand against his chest. The action seemed to startle him somewhat since I felt the muscles underneath twitch.

He looked me deeply in the eyes and started telling me, very fast and strained.


“Melody…I..we…we have to leave. Carlisle is supposed to be much older than he looks like. It won’t take long before people start to get suspicious…And w – “

“Stop those nonsense! That’s a lie! I want the truth!” I’d raised my voice, feeling angry all of the sudden because he was telling me lies. This wasn’t the reason why, it couldn’t be. If it was, they would’ve left eventually but not like this, without any goodbyes.

“you want the truth!? You want to hear, that we left because we’re dangerous for you!? Well, Melody I can tell you but you won’t listen! You’ll say we’re not, that we can perfectly live all together. You saw what happened that evening! You fucking felt it when the glass cut through you flesh! We. Are. Dangerous! And I won’t let no one of us hurt you anymore!” he yelled now, his fierce eyes making him look even more beautiful. The words, however cut through me like a sharp blade.

“Do I mean that less to you!? That you ‘just leave’ me without a fucking word!? Without any explanation? Because you think it’s best for me?” I screamed back, sticking my pointer finger against his chest each time I’d finished a sentence. What I’d said only seemed to fuel his anger.

“Melody, I know what’s best for you! You are not safe with us! you need to let go! Bella did.” he screamed back at me, making me wince and taking a step back as I started sobbing again.

“What do you mean?” my voice had taken a softer pitch again, almost whispering.


“I broke up with her. That’s why she probably isn’t home yet. she believed me. and you should too. I am not good for you.” He explained, expressing every word slowly and clear. I nodded, feeling my heart break once again. it never seemed to stop.


“You don’t belong in my world Melody. You’re human, I’m not. You age, I don’t. You have a soul and mine is damned. Please listen to me once! It’s for your own safety. I want you to have happy life. Without me. “


Everything around me started spinning. No. This wasn’t happening. He wasn’t doing this to me. How I wished this was just another nightmare. There was only one hope left.

“Edward, I…I do! I do belong with you! In every sense of the word! I’m not hu– “ I wanted to tell him, tell my secret. It was the only way to keep him here. But he cut me off.

“No, I don’t want to hear it. you can’t convince me anymore. I’ve made my decision.” He said, whispering now as he tilted my hand, that still lay on his chest away.

I felt numbed. Lifeless. Nothing. He’d already left me, even though he was still standing there. He was breaking the fragile connection we had, that little piece of the mating-bond we already developed. He broke it. It ripped me apart.

I didn’t say anything, not able to speak, just staring into nothing, my sight slightly blurred.


Suddenly, his cold hands took hold of my neck, beneath my long hair that was now dripping with the water that fell with buckets out of the sky. His thumb stroked my cheek, as one other teardrop made its way down. his face was incredibly close to mine.

“I’m sorry that I want this, but it’s the one, only and last thing I’ll ask before I leave.” He whispered. I kept looking at him, questioning and dazed. He seemed to hesitate for a few seconds, still stroking my cheek. His sunrise eyes meet mine again and then I see the certainty flickering. Before I could even ask, think or act on anything, his cold lips pushed against mine.
