I stood there for hours, rooted to the spot where Jacob had left me. I wanted to chase after him, tell him he was wrong, but I couldn't because he was right.
Finally I began moving, slowly at first, gaining speed the farther I ran. I had to make things right, to prove to Jacob that I did love him, and that I did want to commit myself to him.
Before I knew it, I was on the stoop of the little white house knocking on the door. It opened, the person behind it looked at me, wiping the sleep from their eyes.
“Edward?” her voice confused, Bella looked over her shoulder toward the clock that hung on the wall. 2 o'clock in the morning. An hour later, I left her heartbroken, the girl that I had once loved. I once again began running, this time toward La Push, paying no heed to the border as I ran straight past it.
I saw the two wolves flank me, Quil and Embry, their minds yelling at me to stop. But I couldn't, not now, I had one more sin I had to atone for.
