New Moon-Cap 3- The end
Ştiu că urmează un post foaaarte lung, dar pur şi simplu nu m-am putut abţine.
Asta este partea mea preferată din NEW MOON :x
Aştept ziua de luni să primesc ECLIPSE şi să continui cu lecturarea, iar ăn privinţa celei de-a patra carte cred că voi aştepta până va ieşi pe piaţă, aşa, ca să fie plăcerea mai mare când voi citi.
Deci partea în care cei doi se despart o ador, iar după aceea partea când Bella se gândeşte să îl sărute pe Jacob şi când se aruncă de pe stânca. Este pur şi simplu minunat.
We'd gone only a few steps into the trees when he stopped. We were barely on the trail–I
could still see the house.
Edward leaned against a tree and stared at me, his expression unreadable.
"Okay, let's talk," I said. It sounded braver than it felt.
He took a deep breath.
"Bella, we're leaving."
I took a deep breath, too. This was an acceptable option. I thought I was prepared. But I still
had to ask.
"Why now? Another year–"
"Bella, it's time. How much longer could we stay in Forks, after all? Carlisle can barely pass
for thirty, and he's claiming thirty-three now. We'd have to start over soon regardless."
His answer confused me. I thought the point of leaving was to let his family live in peace.
Why did we have to leave if they were going? I stared at him, trying to understand what he
He stared back coldly.
With a roll of nausea, I realized I'd misunderstood.
"When you say we–," I whispered.
"I mean my family and myself." Each word separate and distinct.
I shook my head back and forth mechanically, trying to clear it. He waited without any sign
of impatience. It took a few minutes before I could speak.
"Okay," I said. "I'll come with you."
"You can't, Bella. Where we're going… It's not the right place for you."
"Where you are is the right place for me."
"I'm no good for you, Bella."
"Don't be ridiculous." I wanted to sound angry, but it just sounded like I was begging.
"You're the very best part of my life."
"My world is not for you," he said grimly.
"What happened with Jasper–that was nothing, Edward! Nothing!"
"You're right," he agreed. "It was exactly what was to be expected."
"You promised! In Phoenix, you promised that you would stay–"
"As long as that was best for you," he interrupted to correct me.
"No! This is about my soul, isn't it?" I shouted, furious, the words exploding out of
me–somehow it still sounded like a plea. "Carlisle told me about that, and I don't care,
Edward. I don't care! You can have my soul. I don't want it without you–it's yours already!"
He took a deep breath and stared, unseeingly, at the ground for a long moment. His mouth
twisted the tiniest bit. When he finally looked up, his eyes were different, harder–like the
liquid gold had frozen solid.
"Bella, I don't want you to come with me." He spoke the words slowly and precisely, his cold
eyes on my face, watching as I absorbed what he was really saying.
There was a pause as I repeated the words in my head a few times, sifting through them for
their real intent.
"You… don't… want me?" I tried out the words, confused by the way they sounded, placed
in that order.
I stared, uncomprehending, into his eyes. He stared back without apology. His eyes were like
topaz–hard and clear and very deep. I felt like I could see into them for miles and miles, yet
nowhere in rheir bottomless depths could I see a contradiction to the word he'd spoken.
"Well, that changes things." I was surprised by how calm and reasonable my voice sounded.
It must be because I was so numb. I couldn't realize what he was telling me. It still didn't
make any sense.
He looked away into the trees as he spoke again. "Of course, I'll always love you… in a way.
But what happened the other night made me realize that it's time for a change. Because
I'm… tired of pretending to be something I'm not, Bella. I am not human." He looked back,
and the icy planes of his perfect face were not human. "I've let this go on much too long, and
I'm sorry for that."
"Don't." My voice was just a whisper now; awareness was beginning to seep through me,
trickling like acid through my veins. "Don't do this."
He just stared at me, and I could see from his eyes that my words were far too late. He
"You're not good for me, Bella." He turned his earlier words around, and so I had no
argument. How well I knew that I wasn't good enough for him.
I opened my mouth to say something, and then closed it again. He waited patiently, his face
wiped clean of all emotion. I tried again.
"If… that's what you want."
He nodded once.
My whole body went numb. I couldn't feel anything below the neck.
"I would like to ask one favor, though, if that's not too much," he said.
I wonder what he saw on my face, because something flickered across his own face in
response. But, before I could identify it, he'd composed his features into the same serene
"Anything," I vowed, my voice faintly stronger.
As I watched, his frozen eyes melted. The gold became liquid again, molten, burning down
into mine with an intensity that was overwhelming.
"Don't do anything reckless or stupid," he ordered, no longer detached. "Do you understand
what I'm saying?"
I nodded helplessly.
His eyes cooled, the distance returned. "I'm thinking of Charlie, of course. He needs you.
Take care of yourself–for him."
I nodded again. "I will," I whispered.
He seemed to relax just a little.
"And I'll make you a promise in return," he said. "I promise that this will be the last time
you'll see me. I won't come back. I won't put you through anything like this again. You can
go on with your life without any more interference from me. It will be as if I'd never existed."
My knees must have started to shake, because the trees were suddenly wobbling. I could hear
the blood pounding faster than normal behind my ears. His voice sounded farther away.
He smiled gently. "Don't worry. You're human–your memory is no more than a sieve. Time
heals all wounds for your kind."
"And your memories?" I asked. It sounded like there was something stuck in my throat, like I
"Well"–he hesitated for a short second–"I won't forget. But my kind… we're very easily
distracted." He smiled; the smile was tranquil and it did not touch his eyes.
He took a step away from me. "That's everything, I suppose. We won't bother you again."
