Edward: Do you really have any idea how important you are to me? Any concept at all of how much I love you?
Bella: I know how much I love you.
Edward: You compare one small tree to the entire forest.
B: I love you more.
E: Yes, I know that too. But, when I left you Bella, I left you bleeding. Jacob was the one to stitch you back up again. That was bound to leave it's mark-on both of you.
I'm not sure those kinds of stitches dissolve on their own.
I can't blame either of you for something I made necessary.
I may gain forgiveness but that doesn't let me escape the consequences.
