About This Story
I started writing this story back in the early fall of 2013. I had some dental work done and was therefore in a hydrocodone stupor and bored out of my mind. My muse started thinking, “What if Bella had already moved on when Edward went to the Volturri on his suicide mission? What if she had already moved on and found her soul mate?” Those are just a couple of things that went through my mind as I started writing. After I got going, I thought about how much a person could change in a few short months. As you read the story, you will see that Bella has changed, a lot. She is more confident, more determined, and more mature. Her views on love and relationships changed. She discovered who she is as a person and who she wants to be. She’s happy. Of course, she still has her shy moments and will blush. I didn’t completely erase her character. I wrote her as I imagined her to be if she were in a different environment and was able to heal from her heartbreak.
I never really intended to publish this, but after a lot of encouragement from some dear friends, I decided to go ahead publish it. I hope that you enjoy the story. It is certainly a different flavor than the other stories I have written, that’s for sure. I blame the hydrocodone! 😉
