This story begins when Bella goes to Italy to save Edward. But what if she had been too late? If the Volturi had gotten to him first? Would she go on and who would she be, when she had lost the love of her life all over again?
Warning; This is a very emotional story
This first part is the one I love the most in the entire Twilight saga, and therefore, I think it's appropriate that the story begins here..

-Edward no! I screamed, but my voice was lost in the roar of the chime.
I could see him now, and I could see that he could not see me. It was really him, no hallucination this time, and I realised that my delusions where more flawed then I’d realised. They’d never done him justice. Edward stood, motionless as a statue, just a few feet from the mouth of the alley. His eyes were closed, the rings underneath them deep purple. His arms relaxed at his side, his palms turned forward. His expression was very peaceful, like he was dreaming pleasant things. The marble skin of his chest was bared, there was a small pile of white fabric at his feet. The light reflecting from the pavement of the square gleamed dimly from his skin. I’d never seen anything so beautiful, even as I ran, gasping and screaming, I could appreciate that. And the last seven months meant nothing, and his words in the forest meant nothing. And it did not matter that he did not want me, I would not want anything but him, for no matter how long I lived. The clock told, and he took a large stride towards the light.
-No! I screamed, Edward look at me!
He wasn’t listening. He smiled very slightly, he raised his foot to take the step that would put him directly in the path of the sun.
I was still to far from him, I shoved three people aside with the greatest force I could manage and screamed his name over and over. Just as he opened his eyes, I could see two people suddenly standing behind him. Edwards eyes found mine, there was a look of confusion in them. He blinked once, and just as a smile had began to take place on his perfect lips, his expression turned to one of pain. One of the men standing behind him had his hands on Edwards neck, and with a movement so quick that I almost missed it, he had twisted Edwards neck. With a loud snap, I could hear the bones brake.
Edwards body turned limp, the other man grabbed hold of him and held him up.
I didn’t even realise that I had stopped running. No. NO NO NO NO! No this could not be, this did not happen! My mind was in absolute chaos, no though was able to make it self clear in this mess. This was a nightmare. This isn’t real.
I stared as the two men carried Edwards body away between them, taking him further away from me. My feet’s that had been frozen to the ground for the last seconds suddenly moved again, I started running into the alley, following the men who had taken my life with them.
My mind was screaming at me, telling me that if I only caught up with them I would get him back. If I kept running he would be saved. My lungs burned from the screaming and the running, but it did not matter, I would never stop until I had him in my arms again.
I slowed down to turn around a corner when steel arms gripped me from behind; I was pulled to a sudden stop.
- I am so sorry Bella, his gone.. Alice voice whispered in my ear. I could hear her, but her words meant nothing.
-He was just here, I saw him! If I just find him it will all be.. I trailed of.
Alice turned me around to face her. The expression in her beautiful face was one of the saddest things I’d ever seen. Like a crying angel, only there were no tears in her eyes.
- Bella, he’s gone. She said again.
I looked for a contradiction in her eyes, something in them that would tell me that she was lying to me for some reason. Edward could not be gone, Edward had to exist, or else there was no purpose to this world anymore.
I tried to get out of her hold and keep searching for him, but her arms held me tighter.
I screamed and tried to fight her but it did no good.
In my mind reality began to sift through my denial. I began to understand what Alice was telling me.
I let myself fall deep into the darkness, knowing that nothing would ever get me out of it this time. Never.
Edward was gone.
