Edwards point of view!


Walking away and leaving her like that made me feel like the largest asshole existing. She didn’t deserve it that I was acting like this, but it was for her own good. The only way to save her life. And what a cruel way to go. 

I needed to lie to her, to pretend that I was mentally shaken up and afraid for finding out what she was. that was partially true – really knowing it did fear me but not in the way I let her think. I feared for her. For what was about to come when I knew, when everyone knew. And with everyone I also meant those old vampires with black capes in Italy. 
I slowly went to the Volvo, hearing Melody’s heartbeat behind me like a lifeline. I was so focused on it lately, that I found out there was a different pace in the beat. It seemed somewhat faster and fluttering. Just another part of her being not human. 

I sighed deeply, feeling the spark of remorse and hatred towards myself start to hum through me. I only seemed to brood like I used to before I met my mate the last few months. I wanted to have fun with her, play with my sons bake cookies for all I cared. I wanted to cuddle up with her, have her sleeping in my bed every night and kiss her senseless. Hell, my body wished to make love to her every day, but that went out of my limits.
I was already driving away from the school building and on my way home, seeing that was the best place to go, thinking about pros and cons. 

The Last time Melody and I got there, to the complete lovers state, was the first time too. it had been amazing to me almost everything but in the mean time I hated myself for letting her cheat. But it was only three months later that I found out Jacob Black never had been her boyfriend. 
And still, I refused to go that far again – I knew I’d hurt her badly, scarred her mind and memories and doing that again made my dead heart constrict with pain. I was also convinced though, that she wouldn’t want me to touch her in that way again – the memories of that night were like a bittersweet nightmare to me and probably to her too. 
Not very much later I turned into the gravel path towards my house. I smiled remembering Melody telling me that it had been hers over ten years ago. She explained how it had looked back then and how her baby room, my bedroom now, was decorated. 

I got out of the car in front of the house letting out a gush of air again. I truly, deeply and irrevocably loved her, my lady, my girlfriend. I just had to think of a plan to act like myself and be the man she loves and protecting her by acting like a moron. That made me aggressive, the frustration, the fear of the unknown. And I knew she hated that, but I was sure she could see that I was aware of her fast changing moods – she was in the midst of her changing process. But in what she was exactly changing I didn’t know. 

All I knew was that she was thus dangerous, that Aro feared her and wanted her end no matter what the costs might be.
