shes not here anymore, is she? Her words hammered into the air, loud and clear, knocking all else out of my mind and reminding me what I had pushed to the back of my mind for the last few months. No, Bella wasnt here, I knew that, but I had not dwelled on that fact, but on the very idea that the leeches had taken her away. I was angry at her for being so gullible, so easily tricked into going with them, but she had had the choice. I knew she had a choice, even if I was fooling myself. I had let myself get carried away in locking memories away and covering them with lies that now that Ive been reminded were densely woven to make me forget what was true and only remember what I wanted to, even if it was as far from the truth as I could manage. I had been too scared to think about the truth, instead piling on all those woven lies was the only way I could remember and not break down.
