"My life was an unending, unchanging midnight.  It must, by necessity, always be midnight for me.  So how was it possible that the sun was rising now, in the middle of my midnight?"

Many have tried to finish Stephenie Meyer's "Midnight Sun" (Twilight from Edward's point of view) and from what I've seen, none of them truly finished what she started.  This ending to "Midnight Sun" starting at Chapter 13 is not only picking up where she left off, but uncovering the Edward that she created, and blending the perspectives of many to hear the rest of his story. This first book is a unique turning point in the arc of his character.

When Bella found Edward in the arms of another woman four years ago, she felt confused, betrayed, but most of all, she was heartbroken. She couldn't believe he would do such a thing, but the proof was right there, she saw it with her own eyes, heard it with her own ears, and she refused to listen to reason, so she ran. But what happens when Bella runs into Edward at a club nearly four years later? Will she finally give him the chance to explain what she saw all those years ago, but most importantly, will she believe him? How will Edward react to the secret Bella's been hiding all these years? And what about the secrets lurking in his closet? Will these two be able to overcome all that's happened and move forward together? Or is history going to repeat itself? Lemons. HEA.

Summary:

Welcome to the Academy! Bella Swan, former American Ballet Academy Prima Ballarina and Ballroom dancer, finds herself employed with her friend Alice Cullen at Alice's families dance academy. As a Seattle institution the Volterra Academy of Dance received national acclaim when the dance prodigy signed on, but is that the only purpose when the Cullens hired Ms. Swan or did they have hopes that she could teach more than just the students something? Edward hasn't placed competitively since his partner left him high and dry three years ago. That was when he came to teach ballroom at his family's school. He's convinced he's happy, spreading the love for dance through the younger generation, but that all changed when he spied a brown haired stranger. He saw the way she moved at the club and now he can't get her out of his head. He tells himself that it's best that he doesn't know who she is. He doesn't want another woman in his life to complicate things. It would be best just to forget her, so why can't he. What will happen when he finds out that the girl he can't forget is the new ballet instructor at the Academy? More importantly can they ignore the chemistry that they have from the beginning? Will Bella shake Edward out of his shell and will he find the strength to get out and dance again? Can she teach him to leave it all on the floor? Find out

Generated image

 

"His agony defines him. His memories destroy him.

But his hope is what sustains him, feeds him, encourages him. It's his purpose. And he doesn't deny it.

Offered the chance to leave all pain and misery behind, Edward knew that it was better to suffer his loss than to forget it. For in having it, Bella remains his and only his.

To forget would be the ultimate betrayal, abandoning her once again to a world of lonliness and despair. He had already done that once upon a time, and he did so spectacularly.

He'll find her. He has to. 

HE HAS TO."

- icrodriguez (the most beautiful review I have ever received.  THANK YOU for allowing me the honour of displaying it here.  It sums up the tone of this story beautifully, hearts, Erin)

 

Left in the woods, an unfortunate run-in with Laurant and 45 years later - Bella finds herself facing everything she has ever wanted.  Does it want her back?  What will she discover about how Edward has been spending his time...

When Bella Swan moves to Seattle to live with her father, she keeps her head down and her mouth closed about what brought her here. Edward Cullen dismisses her, thinking that no secret could be as horrific as his own.

But the dark shadows in Bella's life rival his, and put her in far more danger than he ever could. He could save her if he let her in.

Are either of them strong enough for that?

Throw in Edward – the lead singer of one of the biggest rock bands in the world – Fascinate, who witnesses on of Bella’s beatings. He runs to Bella’s aid on one fateful night that will change his life forever. Fast forward a year and he can’t forget it. Music is his only outlet.
