	I looked out the window

I looked out the window. My body stiffens. How dare he bring her home! I was completely enraged. He left me for that fetus and yet he paraded her around like it was nothing.

I understand that he loved her or some other bull. But what he really liked was her blood. I just... it hurt. Edward, my husband for 65 years. He was bringing her home.

He was just shoving it in my face at this point. Tears fell from my eyes as I just stared into the woods.

I felt a present beside me. I looked towards Emmett. Don't get me wrong I loved everyone in my family, but Emmett reminded me of my now long dead brother. His name was Apollo.

Emmett even gave me that same stupid nickname I had always hated yet my heart broke the day I didn't. "Arty." He wrapped one of his arms around my shoulders.

"It's not fair." He didn't look at me, letting me cry without being seen.

"I know." He kissed the top of my head.

"It hurts Em. It really hurts." He pulled me into a hug as I sob. He ran his hand through my hair as a comfort.

My breathing picked up slightly. I couldn't do this. I can't stay here as he loves her. As all those years and all those words helplessly fall down the drain as my hands try hard to grasp them.

I can't be near the pathetic human for I fear what I would do. "I can't do this Em."

"Do what?" Confusion was written clearly on his features.

"Stay here and act as though it's not tearing me apart. I have to leave." He started to shake his head. "Not forever, just a little while. I need time." I whispered the last part.

"Okay, but promise me you will come back." I look into his golden eyes. My blue classing with his gold.

"I promise you I will come home." He nodded.

I walked inside and straight to my room. I threw open my suitcase and threw in my clothes. I can't do this. They can't ask me to stay as my heart breaks at the mention of either of their names.

I pack within minutes. I can't say goodbye. I can't say I'll come back if I have to look him in the eyes and pretend I'm not falling apart just by one look.

How could he ask me to meet her. That child took the very little happiness I had found in my 100,000 years of life. Everything that was mine had been ripped away.

My brother. My parents. My humanity. My life. And now my husband.

I was an experiment. I was the first creature of the night. Yet I was different. I am still a freak amongst freaks.

I walked down the stairs. "Artemis?" I knew that voice way too well. I knew that voice that said our vows and still broke them.

I turned. "Yes?" My voice was hostile. He looked hurt. What did he expect from his now ex wife?

"Where are you going?" He asked.

"I've decided that since you broke our vows nothing I have or know you get to." It's his fault.

"Don't do this. Don't run away." His stupid gift of mind reading.

"What do you want me to do?" I ask. "You don't want me to be your wife anymore. You don't get to ask me to do things. That's not how divorce works." My voice was raised.

"But I don't want you to leave. You don't have to." Edward stated.

"I do. I do have to. I can't stay here. I'm not ready to meet the child you left me for." Edward looked like he wanted to argue. "And don't fight me on that because that's what she is, a child. She is a minor and you're over a hundred years old. I know you, you're not going to turn her willingly. This is never going to work." I yelled.

"I know you're hurting." He started. I saw red.

"Hurting! I'm way past hurting. I'm way past rage. You don't get to play bigger person. I want you to yell and tell me how I've insulted your little pet. I want to tell you that you hate me. I want you to make it easier and tell me every time you said I love you it was a lie. Just let me hate you, because I can't love you anymore. It is tearing me apart." Tears streamed down my face as I yelled.

"I can't hate someone I've loved for so long." Edward said quietly.

"No. You don't get to say that. You don't get to make me feel bad. Why can't you just let me go. It was easy to tell me you wanted someone else, why can't you just let me go completely." I was done.

"Because despite the hurt I've caused you, you're my family." I walked away. I can't yell anymore. I can't look at his face as he acts like I should not be hurting as bad as I am. I can't stay.

I don't say goodbye I just walk out of the door and get into my car leaving. I can't do it. I can't do it. I just can't.
