Breaking Dawn Quotes
It was not going to be the end of the world. Just the end of the Cullens. The end of Edward, the end of me. I preferred it that way – the last part anyway. I would not live without Edward again; if he was leaving this world, then I would be right behind him.

All I wanted was to love him as much as possible in the limited time given to me.
