But Rosalie was jealous of her average looking friend, a girl named Vera. Vera was married young and had a beautiful son, Henry.
She longed for someone to love her. She longed for a little boy of her own.
Then Royce King came along, promising to do just that….
Royce was a rich man who lived in town. He would watch Rosalie and soon started sending her flowers daily.
Royce eventually asked Rosalie to marry him. She accepted……
Rosalie was at Vera’s house… she was worrying about the weather for her wedding. When she walked home, she saw a bunch of drunken men under a broken street lamp. Royce was among them.
Trying to show off to his drunken friends, Royce brutally ripped out Rosalie’s hair pins and tore off her beautiful new jacket. Shortly after, they stumbled away laughing, leaving Rosalie to die alone in the street.
The blood from the violent encounter had attracted a vampire, Carlisle Cullen. He had come to investigate the scene with his son, Edward.
At first, Rosalie thought she was flying because of the speed and grace of Carlisle’s running. He was taking her to his house for the transformation. Edward did not approve of Rosalie, he thought she was too spoiled. But one thing did comfort Rosalie, even through the excruciating pain from Carlisle’s venom……
Edward and Carlisle Cullen both knew that Royce King was guilty of ending Rosalie Hale’s perfect life.
* * * When Rosalie’s painful change was finally over, she was surprisingly thrilled. She thought she was even more beautiful as a vampire than as a human, and she was…
The very first thing she did as a vampire was seek revenge on the men that cut her life short.
She went after Royce’s friends first, so he would know what was coming for him…to make the revenge sweeter for Rosalie…
