Do you want me to sing to you? I'll sing all night if it will keep the bad dreams away.
I gritted my teeth for a second, fighting a smile. If there was one thing he couldn't resist, it was an opportunity to give me something.
My life and his were twisted into a single strand. Cut one, and you cut both. If he were gone, I would not be able to live through that. If I were gone, he wouldn't live through it, either.
We did not hope for the same things, but we all hoped
Don't take too long, Mrs. Cullen
I know it's going to be bad for you, Jacob. I understand that-maybe better than you think. I don't like her, but… she's your Sam. She's everything you want and everything you can't have.
My old mind hadn't been capable of holding this much love. My old heart had not been strong enough to bear it. Maybe this was the part of me that I'd brought forward to be intensified in my new life. Like Carlisle's compassion and Esme's devotion. I would probably never be able to do anything interesting or special like Edward, Alice, and Jasper could do. Maybe I would just love Edward more than anyone in the history of the world had ever loved anyone else. I could live with that.
What do I look like? The Wizard of Oz? You need a brain? You need a heart? Go ahead, take mine. Take everything I have.
Edward and I had not had a last grand scene of farewell, nor did I plan one. To speak the word was to make it final. It would be the same as typing the words The End on the last page of a manuscript. So we did not say our goodbyes, and we stayed very close to each other, always touching. Whatever end found us, it would not find us separated.
I wanted him like I wanted air to breathe. Not a choice- a necessity.
Nice girl who knew cars. Wow. I stared at her face harder, wishing I knew how to make it work. C'mon, Jake - imprint already.
Whatever end found us, it would not find us separated. -- Bella Cullen
Fire and ice, somehow existing together without destroying each other. More proof that I belonged with him.
I was just thinking - today is the first and last day of forever. It's kind of hard to wrap my head around it. Even with all this extra room for wrapping.
No measure of time with you will be long enough, but we'll start with forever.
Why didn't I just walk away? Oh right, because I'm a idiot.
For a second I was just a kid - a kid who had lived all of his life in the same tiny town. Just a child. Because I knew I would have to live a lot more, suffer a lot more, to ever understand the searing agony in Edward's eyes.
I was stronger than Edward. I'd made him say ow.
No one dressed by me ever looks like an idiot.
With our rarely changing temperaments strong emotions can alter us in permanent ways. But he said I did not need to worry about that part - you had already altered me so completely.
For one half second, I wondered what it would feel like to put my hand in the fire. What it would feel like when I burned....
I would probably never be able to do anything interesting or special like Edward, Alice and Jasper could do. Maybe I would just love Edward more than anyone in the history of the world had ever loved anyone else.
Of course, die for the monster spawn. It was so Bella.
Yes, heaven forbid I not be protected from tanks.
Funny how it kept hitting me, like each new thing was a surprise. When was I going to stop being surprised?
I'm glad I came. I didn't think I would be. But it's good to see you… one more time. Not as sad as I'd thought it would be.
Real. Does that make me imaginary?
You could run from someone you feared, you could try to fight someone you hated. All my reactions were geared toward those kinds of killers - the monsters, the enemies. When you loved the one who was killing you, it left you no options. How could you run, how could you fight, when doing so would hurt that beloved one? If your life was all you had to give your beloved, how could you not give it? If it was someone you truly loved?
He didn't ask what I was thinking, which was out of character for him. I guessed that meant that he was just as nervous as I suddenly was.
I'm just here to be your friend. Your best friend, one last time.
