As ever, I do not own Twilight – it owns me.

As far back as I can remember, I’ve watched the stars whenever they come out from behind the constant cloud cover.

Every time, I’ve wished for pretty much the same thing: to find someone to love for my very own. Someone who won’t disappear or walk away.

Tonight’s no different. I sigh wistfully as I murmur my wish into the great beyond. Doubting I’ll ever get an answer.

I close my eyes.

“Bella? Are you in here?”

Alice’s voice has my heart racing – it always does.

I blush as I answer.

She smiles at me. “I’ve been looking for you.”
