Edward and Garrett are miserable without Bella, namely Edward. It had been a month since she told them that she couldn’t do it anymore. She couldn’t risk her career for a whim. Edward was more heartbroken than Garrett. Edward had truly loved her, wanting more than what they had. Garrett had already started dating, but he was determined to bring Edward and Bella back together. They were destined to be together.
Bella was just as miserable, but she pushed herself, focusing on her job. James, her ex-husband, had fallen off the planet, thankfully, enjoying the hospitality of the prison in Ossining, New York. He had ruined the happiness she felt for the first time in years. She hated him for it, but she couldn’t dwell on it.
One day, as she was going out for lunch with Marcus, her new boss, she ran into Garrett. He pulled aside and asked to meet with her. She tried to squirm away, but the sadness in his eyes broke her. They agreed to meet at a local pub near her home after work. Once there, Garrett explains to her that Edward is in love with her and that he is dying inside. Bella asked what Garrett felt. He explained that he did love her, but he wasn’t in love with her. Edward was lost and fading away. Bella’s tears and her own heart breaking affirmed Garrett’s hypothesis that she loved Edward, too. Fear broke them apart.
Will love bring them back together?
