Genre: Romance/Drama

Summary: Edward was changed in 1918 unaware that his betrothed lay dying in an alley outside the hospital. Every eighteen years she comes back to him, only to die a horrible death. Can they find a way to stop it, before it's too late?

Imagine, you are a month away from marrying the love of your life, in the year 1918, to have your love taken way just as quickly as they appeared. Someone dies, another was dying but survived somehow. Years go by, and that same person that shouldn't be alive is standing right in front of you. What would you do?

He'd convinced himself he had been hallucinating, transferring a latent human memory onto the image of this girl, who just so happened to look like her and share her name. A complete coincidence. But the second time he saw her, he thought for sure he was going mad.

She'd turned up in England, as they were visiting Carlisle's human home. Her hair was long and curled just so beneath her hat, nearly eighteen years after he'd last seen her. She wore a blue dress, with a wide neck to show her glorious collar bones, the same ones he wished he could kiss like before. And she'd smiled, introducing herself.

"Good evening. I'm Bella and you are?"

Now, add the fact that you get a few months again with your love, to only have lost the love of your life once again. Would you continue to let it happen, or would you find a way to stop this cruel cycle from happening? That's the decisions that Edward is left with in this amazing story.

"Do you love me?" she asked, as she lay herself down on the ground, wincing at the pain slicing through her limbs.

"More than anything." He murmured, grasping onto her outstretched hand as though it held all answers to life. He couldn't just let her die. But what could he do, he'd promised himself he wouldn't make her like him, that he wouldn't condemn her to this half life.

"I know what you are, my love." She whispered, coughing blood after she spoke, "Can't I be what you are, and be by your side for forever?"

At her words Edward broke down. His cries echoing off the surrounding trees who were audience to his grief. His mind was shouting at him, telling him she had no idea what she was asking for. But his heart, the heart that had long ago stopped beating, was telling him to do it. To break her skin and pour his venom into her, to save her and to change her. To be selfish.

What does he do you ask? I'm not telling. You have to go read A Love Story For the Ages to find out what happens **wink wink** and enjoy.
