"Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences."
— J.K. Rowling
In the process of returning to Forks, Washington, Edward came across a car whose passenger held a familiar, silent mind. Curious by the phenomenon, he followed them and inadvertently witnessed a horrific accident. Compelled by curiosity, Edward found himself immersed in the blood that he'd so desperately tried to shield himself from four years earlier. Overwhelmed by his vampire nature, he allowed the beast within free rein and savored the alluring liquid.
Consumed by the shame of drinking her blood, Edward brought the girl home to his father and hoped Carlisle would save her life, knowing deep in his heart that she was beyond modern medicine. After much deliberation, Edward accepted the inevitable and changed her himself, nearly killing her in the process. With the treaty in shambles and forgiveness hanging in the balance, could Edward forgive himself for imposing such a fate upon a dying girl? Could Bella forgive a vampire who whisked her away from her family and her friends?
