100 Years Without Love 15It was three weeks after our wedding. A week before my birthday. Four days before I was supposed to be changed. I was getting a bit nervous, not of being of vampire but of becoming one. I was scared of the pain that would happen before I was one of them.100 Years Without Love 157 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Edward, lets go to our meadow, one last time while Im human, I said.
We ran all the way to our meadow, me slung over Edwards back. I couldnt wait till I could run at that speed by myself. At first it had been terrifying, but now it was exhilarating, exciting.
Edward helped me off his back once we were in our beautiful meadow, untouched by other human life yet looking like it had a team of gardeners tending to it every day. I didnt know how it could stay so perfect, but I was glad it did.
I lay down on the waving grass and Edward was on top of me within seconds. He was being so gentle that I couldnt feel any of the pressure of him being on top of me but I could feel his cool body pressing
100 Years Without Love 10Edward tensed, not moving for what seemed like years. Eventually, his face twisted in this unexplainable way, but I could tell he was mad. Really mad.100 Years Without Love 107 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Is this some kind of sick joke you and Alice set up? he snarled, and continued without letting me say anything. God, I wouldnt think Alice could get that low. And this is cruel, even for you. I may not know you, but I thought you were nice. Someone that I could maybe even trust eventually, but now I see youre just like every other vampire in this world. Selfish. Evil.
That hurt. I may be selfish at times but not evil. Never evil. Not even when I wasnt a vegetarian. Even then I didnt think I was evil. I reached for him instinctively, feeling his pain. It coursed through the arm around us like a thousand knives. I wanted to hold him. I never want to let him go.
He hissed when my hand touched his arm lightly. I didnt move my hand. Instead, I said, Edward, please believe me. This is
100 Years Without Love 11So, Ill take it you believe me now, I said with a little laugh when we broke away again.100 Years Without Love 117 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Yes, I dont know how I could ever doubt you, he said, his lips brushing my ear lightly. I do have to apologize for my behavior earlier, though, love. Will you forgive me?
I dont know, I said playfully. It might take a little while.
Will this help? he asked, kissing me forcefully on the lips again.
Maybe, I said as he pulled away.
I couldnt believe this. I was finally in Edwards arms again. After a hundred years of imagining it, I was living my dream well not dream, literally, since we vampires cant dream, but you get what I mean. He felt warm, not at all as cold and hard as he had felt to my soft body when I had been human. I felt the love for me that had not changed one ounce over the past hundred years coursing out of his every pore. I was pretty sure my love for him was
100 Years Without Love 14I had thought that if I ever went back to Edward I would have needed to rebuild our relationship a little bit. I mean, I had walked out on him. I had just left while he was hunting, leaving my ring on his pillow. I hadnt expected that it would be just like what had happened with Jacob: I had come back and we had become best friends again just like that.100 Years Without Love 147 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
But it was, and even better. There was nothing we needed to rebuild, just aspects to strengthen. I had overreacted when I had left. My human emotions were too much for me to handle, but now that we were both vampires and I wasnt controlled by stupid, human emotions our relationship was literally perfect.
We didnt talk about why I left and what happened. I knew Edward didnt quite believe my little story about what happened but as long as he didnt bring it up I wasnt going to. That didnt mean that I thought we were going to avoid it forever. I knew sooner or later we were going to ha
100 Years Without Love 12We were attacked with hugs from every direction. Congratulations were being screamed in my ear. Emmett even lifted both of us off the floor in one of his big bear hugs at the same time. I was very thankful that I didnt need to breathe.100 Years Without Love 127 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
This is how a family should be, I thought as I watched everyone ask Edward what he had been up to for the past three years. They had accepted me even back when I was a human and loved me like their own family member just because Edward was in love with me. And after I had left them I had come to admit that I hadnt just left Edward, but my whole family they had welcomed me back in with open arms after a hundred years. Except for Rosalie, but she was well, Rosalie. Yes, this was exactly how every family should be.
I was aroused from my thought by Edwards sweet lips being pressed against mine. We still have so much to talk about, he reminded me, whispering softly in his ear.
He twirled a piece of my hair arou
100 Years Without Love 20I wont go into details about our hunting. Its one thing if Im talking about animals but humans I will say, though that the worst thing Ive ever heard is a human begging me not to kill them. Most vampires take joy from that sound but I would rather suffer in hell than have to listen to them scream and beg. I try to end it quickly but sometimes they struggle so much that that is not possible.100 Years Without Love 207 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
I wiped my lips clean of any access blood and checked my shirt for any red specks. As usual, my clothes were perfect, as though I had just walked through a field of flowers with my boyfriend than killed an innocent human. Vampires just always look perfect for some reason.
Andrew came up and put his arm around my waist, kissing my lips passionately. I tried to kiss him back with as much enthusiasm as he was but it was a bit hard when the only thing I could see behind my eyelids was Edwards perfect face.
Come on, Andrew said, not seeming to no
100 Years Without Love 26A marble body collided with me, pushing me back a few steps. Before he could attack anymore, I focused and gracefully stabbed my knife through his heart. He looked surprised and fell to the floor in a heap the second I withdrew the knife from his chest. I wasnt able to clean the blood off before I was hit again.100 Years Without Love 267 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Jane obviously hadnt gotten the memo about the whole golden dagger thing because these guys were all fighting the old fashioned way: trying to tear us to pieces. We had the advantage even though we were greatly outnumbered.
I looked around at everyone. Carlisle and Esme were gracefully weaving around each other, plunging their knives into the hearts of the guards around them. It looked a lot like they were waltzing. Jasper wasnt letting Alice have any of the fun and she was pouting while she tried to get a few kills in. Edward swooped in every few minutes to give me a quick kiss. Emmett was using his fury to take down about four guards at a time. Jacob was tea
100 Years Without Love 22I didnt want to leave the Cullens after that. I had no idea when I would see them again. It may be never. If something went wrong, there was no doubt that the Volturi would eliminate me eliminating just being a fancy word for kill, murder, destroy. I seriously had to stop thinking so hard. Now, I was getting a little bit too worried.100 Years Without Love 227 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Edward was reluctant to let me go. He held onto me tight, kissing my lips vigorously. I kissed him back.
Edward, I have to leave, I said.
I dont know if I can let you go, Edward said. I have a feeling Ill never see you again.
Im always with you, Edward, I said, using the corniest line in the book. I touched his chest over his still heart. Right here.
Edward laughed and kissed me one last time. I ran off before I convinced myself not to leave. It wouldve been so easy. But I had to get back, save Rose, and destroy the Volturi. I ran through the forest as fas
100 Years Without Love 16I had just told Edward all this. He was sitting on the couch next to me, mouth hanging wide open. I touched his arm gently.100 Years Without Love 167 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Edward, please say something, I pleaded. I couldnt stand the silence.
He blinked a couple times and then shook his head, Bella, in the meadow, that wasnt me. I was hunting with Alice. I came back and there was no note. Just the ring. And Alice wasnt here either. She was with me, hunting.
So, you were never going to go back on your promise? I asked.
No, I was actually going to surprise you and change you three days earlier when I came back, Edward said.
And you left me a not that said you were going to be hunting? I asked.
Yeah, you were asleep, but Alice came and asked me if I wanted to join her, Edward said. I had to admit I was pretty thirsty so she forced me to go with her. I didnt want to wake you so I left a note on your pillow which I found ripped into a bun
100 Years Without Love 18I dont know how long the nothingness lasted. A minute. A day. A month. A year. Forever. What I do know is that it was torture. I was stuck in my head with no one but myself and my thoughts, which was not a good thing. No matter how hard I tried to keep them in control, they always seemed to find a way to drift towards the fact that my family had been wiped out. They had all been killed. Even Alice and Edward. Edward and Alice. Edward, who had always been so invincible. Of course, I knew he was no match against ten, highly trained Volturi guards.100 Years Without Love 187 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Eventually I was able to break free of my nothingness. I felt a bed under me, soft and cushy. I could smell harsh antiseptics and a couple vampires in a room with me. I could hear them bustling around the room.
I didnt open my eyes. Not just yet. I had to figure out what was going on. I tuned into the minds around me and came in contact with some very hateful, very familiar thoughts. Jane. I had to keep my face from snarling as I li
100 Years Without Love 25Now that I knew how to kill vampires easier, I knew I couldnt wait much longer to attack. Edward and the Cullens had found a few more people ahem, vampires people would make a nice snack for the Volturi to help us. Obviously, not many of us thought the Volturi was as helpful as they were supposed to be. Sure, they kept people from make newborn armies and etcetera but they were cruel, vicious killers.100 Years Without Love 257 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Did you know that its really hard to find a twenty-four karat golden knife for less than a thousand bucks? Yeah, well, it is. I eventually found okay priced knifes and bought about ten. Everyone needed one.
I decided since we had this new way to kill vampires, we didnt need as much help as long as we were quick. I had the Cullens send home all the non-vegetarian vampires and the werewolves. Jacob insisted on staying and helping but I couldnt risk anyone elses life.
A date was set. I was going to be on guard of the north entrance that day. Ev
100 Years Without Love 23Edward had given me one of the little silver phones that the family used to keep in touch with one another like the one Alice had used back when I was being stalked by the killer James. Emergencies, I had told myself. Its for emergencies only.100 Years Without Love 237 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Yet, that night I found myself digging through my suitcase and calling Edward just to hear his voice. I had thought he was dead for months and now that he was alive or at least, now that I knew he was alive; he was really alive the whole time I didnt want to go one minute without hearing his voice.
Bella, is something wrong? He answered the phone without even saying hello.
I just miss you, I said. I miss you a lot.
I know how you feel, Edwards velvety voice told me. Its torture without you.
Oh, I said. I found Rosalie. I have no idea how to get her out but shes alive and fine.
My god, Edward whispered
100 Years Without Love 28I opened my eyes slowly, blinking in the bright light. This had to be heaven. I was surrounded by angels. All the pain was gone. I sat up a little too quickly and black splotches appeared over my vision. I waited until they had disappeared and stood up.100 Years Without Love 287 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
I looked around. I was in a small meadow; everything around me was a bright green. It was beautiful, tranquil. Yep, this had to be heaven. I was dead. Strangely that piece of information wasnt too disturbing. I remember when I had woken up after coming home from Volterra the first time, I had thought I was dead and I was pretty upset. But right now, everything just seemed to perfect. The only thing missing was my angel.
I looked down at my chest. My clothes were white: a white tank top and white jeans. A nasty scar was on my chest right about my left breast. My hair hung down to my waist, still blond but longer than it had ever been when I was a vampire or a human.
I examined the meadow again. It resembled our meadow mine a
