In 1911, i broke my leg falling out of a tree i climbed. My family lived on a farm on the outskirts of Columbus. The local doctor was away, and it was after dark by the time they got me to the small hospital in Columbus. A Dr. Cullen treated me. It was his last month in town. I never got over the experience.
I was the last of my friends to marry. I was thinking of moving West to be a schoolteacher, but my father didn’t think it was respectable for a lady to live alone in the wilds. The son of a family friend, a man with good prospects, wanted to marry me, and my father pressured me to accept. I was indifferent towards Charles Evenson, but not opposed to him. I married him in 1917 at the age of 22, and quickly found that this had been a bad decision. Charles’s public face was very different from his private face; he abused me. My parents counseled me to be a good wife and keep quiet. When he was drafted to fight in WW1, it was a huge relief to me. When he came back in 1919, it was terrifying.
Shortly after his return, I discovered i was pregnant. The pregnancy was my catalyst to escape. I couldn’t let a child be brought into that home. I ran away in 1920 to live with a second cousin in Milwaukee, and then moved further north when word of my whereabouts leaked to my parents. I blended in easily, pretending to be one of the many war widows. I taught school in a small community outside Ashland. When my baby died in 1921 from a lung infection just a few days after he was born, i had nothing left. I had no idea that Carlisle was working in the little hospital in Ashland when i jumped off the cliff outside the town. Carlisle remembered me, of course, as the happy girl i had been at sixteen. He didn’t want me to die and so he saved me.
When i opened my eyes, in all that pain, and saw the face that i never forgotten in a decade, i was relieved. I was not really that upset to find out i was a vampire, but i didn’t take it as in stride as Emmett had. Still, i was happy to be with the man/vampire of my dreams. I did always have that maternal ache, and, as the physically oldest of the Cullen’s, I fell into a mothering role. FamilyMy daughtersBella Cullen
