16. 28th July ~ Edward
I laugh humourlessly "No. No you're not" I glance down at her, her face blazing in determination. I could stare into her eyes.I shake my head. "Don't even joke about that." She looks deep in my eyes and murmurs
"I . am . coming" She spits out. I roll my eyes. She really did have an awful temper. But as I looked at her, her beautiful brown eyes glittering with tears. They trickle down her cheek, and I gently wipe them away with my thumb, her pale skin smooth as silk under my touch. I hated seeing her like this. She looked like she wanted to take on the world, and she looked terrifying. But I knew that I had to leave. The sooner, the better... I couldn't let her get hurt. If I lost her, I'd be nothing. Just emptiness. Hollow, like empty sorry's. I needed to go. Now.
I stand up slowly, pulling Rose up with me. She sighs softly and shakes her head, her red hair swinging around her face like a pendulum. I take a step back, kissing her softly on the cheek as I turn for the door. It slowly killed me as I took a single step away from her. Any moment without her felt meaningless. I whisper as I emerge outside, the cool wind ruffling my hair, the last words I wanted her to hear from me before I leave. "Goodbye Anwen. I love you and I swear on my life I will come back. I love you." I close my eyes and run off, not being able to see her face as I left, my feet pounding on the harsh earth.
