Chapter 3 The End
Bella can tell something is not right with Edward. He begins to distance himself from her more and more. While trying to cope with Edward as he shuts her out, she is saddened to hear that Alice and Jasper have left Forks because of the incident at the party. Bella desperately tries to roust Edward out of his gloom but nothing works. Finally, on the edge of the woods near Bella’s house, Edward breaks up with Bella. Edward and the rest of the Cullen’s are moving away from Forks and are not going to return. He informs her that she will not be going with them.
Bella tries to follow Edward as he runs away but quickly gets lost and falls to the forest floor. She curls up into a ball and lays there for a long time crying. She is found by Sam Uley and taken home where a doctor examines her. The doctor confirms that the Cullen’s have left Forks.
