My name is Edward Anthony Masen Cullen.
"Youíre intoxicated by my very presence."
I was originally born in Chicago, Illinois on June 20, 1901. In 1918, my parents, Edward Sr. and Elizabeth Masen, died while the Spanish influenza was going around, and my mother asked Dr. Carlisle Cullen to "save me." He turned me into a vampire, as there seemed to be little hope of me living. From then on, Carlisle raised me as his son. Eventually, others joined our family.
"Itís twilight... It's the safest time of day for us. The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way... the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable..."
I'm living in the quiet, tiny town of Forks, Washington. With the exception of my family, this is your average small town. Nothing too exciting happens here. Well at least not until one day, when a new girl named Bella Swan arrived at school. I could barely control myself. I was intrigued by her, and she smelled so good. I tried to stay away from her because I thought I wouldn't be able to control myself, but I was unable to do so. I ended up falling in love with her...
"It will be as if I never existed."
Since Bella was already prone to danger, and I only seemed to be attracting more towards her, I decided I had to leave in her best interest. I wanted her to be able to live a normal, human life, without all the danger associated by being around me. Being without her, well, those were the longest and worst days of my life . She was always on my mind, but I promised her I would not interfere in her life again. Strangely enough, it was Bella who ended up saving me when I decided to go to Volterra, Italy.
"I could see it in your eyes, that you honestly believed that I didn't want you anymore. The most absurd, ridiculous concept...as if there were any way that I could exist without needing you."
While I was gone, Bella met a werewolf named Jacob Black. They became very good friends. Werewolves, however, are the mortal enemies of my kind. Although he is my enemy, I am very grateful to Jacob and his pack, for they protected Bella while I was gone. He grew to like her, in fact, to love her. If Bella would be happier with him, I would be happy if she picked him over me. She is my life. She's the only thing it would hurt me to lose, and as much as I would hate to lose her, especially to one of my enemies, it would hurt me even more to see her unhappy.
"Isabella Swan? I promise to love you forever-
Every single day of forever. Will you marry me?"
Bella wanted to be changed into a vampire. She wanted me to be the one to change her - apparently, she liked the idea of 'my venom' flowing through her veins. I told her I would change her under one condition - she must marry me first. At first, she didn't believe me when I propsed to her, and she didn't want people in Forks to get the wrong impression of our relationship. However, I did not back down on my deal - I wanted her to be mine forever. She finally accepted my hand in marriage, and we were married on August 13th. I do not think that I could possibly be any happier than I am now.
"All of my best nights have happened since I met you."
On our honeymoon at Isle Esme, Bella got pregnant. None of us knew this was possible. I wanted to get the 'thing' out of her - it was hurting her. Bella wouldn't even consider this option though. She loved this 'thing' that was hurting her. Eventually, we all grew to love it. Our baby girl, half vampire & half human, was born on September 10th. After giving birth to Renesmee, Bella had to be changed into a vampire so she would survive. She finally got her one wish - I bit her, and she changed. Renesmee is a true miracle, and we love her with all our hearts. We moved to a cottage and are now living happily ever after...forever.
