Chapter 1. – Reflections
I’ve never given much thought as to how I would die, what with my being theonlyhalf-human/ “ vegetarian” half-vampire in the essence of our kind.Since the day was born, I’ve always thought of myself as being a killer. Too make thelong story short. I flat-out killed my mother as she carried me in her womb, witch ishow she livers her new life as an immortal. But they always reassure me that I wasthe bet thing that’s ever happened to them.But also after I was born I met my sul-mate at only minutes old. Jacob Black. Not only is this boy my mother’s best-friend but to come to his finding, awerewolf.Since that day he has changed ot me in many ways as being from my protector, tomy brother, to my best-friend, and now to our existence as lovers.I have been on this earth for exactly 7 years, but trapped in
glorified andexquisitebody of 18 years of age.With having parents as vampires comes a special gift. My mother well she cansimply shield anyone out and protect the ones she loves. My father can read peoplesminds as they pass along. But me. I’m a mystery. My gift is very subtle. I don’tusually speak unless I have too. I’m better off
people.“NO!” I shrieked as I awoke from an unreal mightmare I thought would nevercome true. Edward and Bella scurrie to my bedroom already knowing what wasgoing on. “ Ness, sweetheart what’s wrong?” I heard my father as. I shook headside-to-side trying to answer hisQuestion, then pulling my hand away from under the quilt and pressing it lightly onhis cheek and elling him, “
Nothing’s wrong Dad, just a dream. Everyone has them,don’t worry
.”I got up to hug my mother, still unsure what was going on, but really I knew he did.I pecked her cheek, and ran into the closet Aunty Alice had created me since I havematured into a fully teenager. My father left the room and mother stayed.“ Ness I just know something’s up? Why Won’t you tell me? I’m not going to calmdown until you tell me. Now!” she threatened.“ Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, nothings worng, I’m fine, your fine, Jacob’s fine. You canease your stran and Dad’s too. So calm down.”I told her, not even realizing I was shouting. She took my word and left the roomwith a wry smile on her face, as I did the same. I got dressed, with what my hadsfirst touched not even taking the time to see if it matched.I put on some sequined flip-flops and headed out the cottage door, passing myparents as I left. They didn’t even sare to ask me where I was headed.As I headed up to the rest of the Cullen’s house I saw something blur right by me.I stopped in my tracks, suddenly feeling unaware of what was going on?I gasped and clutched my stomach. Two warm muscled-band arms grabbed me up into the familiar bear-hug I love. “ Jaocb!” I whispered with enthusiasm. “ Yes, Ness it’s me.” He confirmed. “ Jakewhere have you been?” I asked him not really wanting to break he silence.“ I’ve been taking a break, nothing to worry about.” he told me.He suddenly gazed at my lips and fiercely kissed me as much urgency our lips tendto have. I sculpted my hands into his hair, and clinging my body to his. Amazing,as if I was created just for him.We gave up, pulled back and stared into each others eyes.Looking on into hi deep-set-black eyes, seeming to be filled with shocking news. “ Iwas headed up to the house. Do you want to come with me?” I asked seeminginnocent.
