I have been a vampire for 5 years now. I've a teen pop sensation for a little over a year now. I'm Aliana Facinelli, formerly known as Isabella"Bella"Swan. Let me tell you about my new 'life', my new family, new friends, my career, and them. I'm pretty sure you know who they are. I live in Portland,Oregon. I live with my family, or coven, but I love them like my family. In my family there is... My father, Peter Facinelli, is a doctor at a local hospital. He was the one who found us and took us in. He's really 306 years old, but he tells people he's 34, even though he looks way younger than that. He has dark brown hair, of course, gold eyes, and, according to nurses, has a killer bod.(eww!) He was born in Italy, but was changed when he was 26. He, like him, is a 'vegetarian' vampire. Apparently, there are more vegetarian vamps out there, than I thought. He's an awesome doctor, and a great dad. He's also the one that can resist human blood completely. My mom,Elizabeth Facinelli, is a home-maker. She was turned when she was 25 and was out hiking when she got attacked by a mountain lion. Peter, who was hunting nearby, saw her and couldn't bear to see someone so beautiful die. He turned her and explained to her what happened. She took it pretty well. Pretty soon they fell in love and married. They've been together ever since. Elizabeth is an awesome mom, who I love as much as Renee, my real mom. Elizabeth has straight light brown hair, gold eyes, is slim, and almost always is smiling. She can pretty much love anyone, unless their evil and cause our family trouble. Then there's my oldest sibling Brandi. We tell the media she was adopted when she was younger. Brandi was changed when she was 22 years old. She had been beaten by her step-mother, and was bleeding severely when, Peter had found her. He and Elizabeth felt sorry for her and changed her. She freaked out, and left Peter and Elizabeth, until she had no idea what she was going to do. She came back and, after Peter and Elizabeth explained what they were, she eventually excepted what she had become. She became their 'daughter'. She has dirty blonde hair, is tall and has grace like a dancer. She's a reliable sister, who's always there when you need help, but, like normal siblings, we all do fight sometimes. Her power is that she can sense when danger is near. She's also single.
After Brandi,my 'brother' Michael joined the family. The media thinks he's also adopted. He's 19 and has shaggy light brown hair, gold eyes, has a muscular build. He's at college with his human girlfriend, (actually fiance)in Seattle. Yep, Mike fell in love with a human, named Nina, and unlike my vampire-human romance, theirs is getting a happy ending. Sure it took her 3 years, alot of persuasion, and a threat from the Volturi, to convince him to marry her, and change her, but it's worth it since they love each other. Plus we all love Nina and the burst of happiness we got from Mike after her met Nina. Mike's power is that he can track anyone down with precision, once he gets their scent. But, there's more. There's my 'brother' Adrian. He has jet black hair, gold eyes, is a bit less muscular than Mike, but is still pretty strong. He was changed by an unknown vampire, because he saw Adrian one day and was interested in what kind of vampire he would be. Adrian's power is that he knows every single one of your deepest secrets. Adrian found Peter and everyone after wandering around on his own. He mostly keeps to him room, listening to heavy metal, and rock and going on dates. But occasionally comes down to play some video games. He also goes through girls, human and vampire, like a box of Kleenex, he has a new girlfriend every week. Even though Peter and Elizabeth have told Adrian to slow down and try to find a girl who he could genuinely like, he doesn't listen. Then there's my little sister Alexa. She has black hair like Adrian and gold eyes. She was changed by another vampire when she was 15 and awoke alone. She was put in an orpanage. One day Elizabeth was visiting the orpanage, and Alexa caught her eye. She knew what she Alexa was and adopted her. Alexa's power is mind control, and she can turn you into anything, like the time she turned Adrain into a rat! Haha, good times! Of course she's single being 15, and, according to Peter, is 'too young' to date. Then there's my youngest brother Frankie. He's 6, and growing. He was born a vampire. His parents abandoned him for unknown reasons. He was found by Peter and Elizabeth who has always wanted a little boy as part as their family. They took him in, and by far he is the cutest 6 year old ever! Peter saids he'll get his power by the time he's 13, and will stop growing by 15 years old. Now you know about most of my family members. But there's still how I got changed, my claim to fame, my friends, my power, and my 2 biological siblings.
Chapter 2 Ali's POV
Alright, let's start with Charlie and Renee's secret. Flashback Edward left me months ago, and never came back. Jacob won't talk to me. My life officially sucks now. I spent most of my time in my room, only coming out for meals and using the bathroom. I decided to actually at least do something besides staring blankly up at the ceiling in my room, so I settled on cleaning the house. I had cleaned the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the carpets, windows, the kitchen, everything except the living room, which I was working on right now. I was dusting the shelves when I accidentally knocked over a picture frame. "Shoot," I muttered,as the frame fell apart. I bent down to put the frame together when a piece of paper slipped out. I picked up the piece of paper and unfolded it. I was my birth certificate. I wondered why my birth certificate was in the back of a picture frame, when something caught my eye. Taped to the back of my birth certificate was a picture. It was a picture of the day I was born. Renee looked exhausted, but she had a smile on her face. Charlie was holding me and smiling. At least I think it was me. In this picture Renee was holding two bundles, one pink and one blue. Charlie was carrying a pink bundle. I kept staring at the picture. A million questions ran though my mind. Why were there 3 babies? Did I have two siblings I didn't know about? Why didn't Charlie and Renee tell me about this? As I stood there motionless,just staring at the picture, I didn't notice the front door slam, and Charlie come in. "Hey kiddo, what are you doing?" asked Charlie as he took off his boots. I turned to Charlie, my right hand shaking slightly as I showed Charlie the picture. "What, is this? I questioned, trying to keep the anger out of my voice. Charlie took the picture from my hand. As he looked at the picture his eyes got wide, and he grew pale.
"This is a picture, taken at the hospital the day you were born," croaked Charlie as he stared at the picture. "I know that!" I snapped, "who are the other two babies?" Charlie took a deep breath, and closed his eyes. "Those two babies are your siblings,Joseph and Miley." The news hit me like a ton of bricks. I had two siblings? We were triplets? They never told ME! "WHY DID YOU NEVER TELL ME ABOUT THIS?" I screeched. "Bella, calm down and-" "CALM DOWN, HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO BE CALM ABOUT THIS?" "Bells, please, let me explain!" pleaded Charlie. I managed to calm down after a few minutes, or was it after a few hours? I can't remember that well...anyway... "Ok,when your mother gave birth, we figured out we were going to have 3 babies instead of 1." started Charlie. He suddenly looked down at his feet. "Go on," I urged. "When your mother went into labor, you were born first, then your brother Joseph, one minute after you, and then your sister Miley, a minute later." Charlie paused to take a breath of air. "But we couldn't afford to take care of all of you guys, so we kept you and sent Joe to my brother in New Jersey,and Miley to California." "So you guys lied to me all these years?" I asked angrily. "Well me and your mother were gonna tell you someday, but then we got divorced, you moved, your mother remarried," Charlie said. "And we decided you wouldn't need to know." "I wouldn't need to know, " I fumed, "they're my siblings I deserve to know about them!" "I'm sorry Bella, it just slipped our minds, "pleaded Charlie. Slipped their minds!? Slipped their minds!? How could their own children 'slipped their minds?'
"I need to call mom," I announced, "there are leftovers in the fridge go reheat them for yourself, I'm not hungry." I ran up stairs and called my mom. I got her after the third ring. "Hello?" came my mom's voice. "Mom, I'm me Bella." I tried hard to keep the anger out of my voice. "Oh, Bella honey!How are you?" cried my mom. "I'm fine, but I have a question for you." "Shoot." "Why didn't you tell me!" I yelled. "Tell you what?" came my mother's confused voice from the other end of the phone. "Oh nothing...EXCEPT THE FACT THAT I HAVE 2 YOUNGER SIBLINGS!" "Mom, mom, answer me!" I yelled. "How...how did you find out?" came my mother's weak reply. "I found my birth certificate." I gritted out. "Oh,well honey,you know how I am,I'm forgetful." came the meek reply. "Some mother you are,forgetting about two of her children?!" I scoffed. "Isabella Marie Swan,don't you dare say that!" cried Renee. "I took care of you all by myself for 17 years." "Yea,your Mother of the Year!" I replied sarcastically. "Isabella!" "Mom,it's just...how could you not tell me!" "I'm sorry honey, I was about to tell you,but then you moved,and Phil,and I'm sorry!" wailed my mother. I sighed, "it's ok mom,I'm sorry,I'm just a bit overwhelmed." I said.
"Well, why don't you get some rest,and we can talk about it tomorrow," suggested my mother. "Ok,but mom,do Joe and Miley still live where they were sent?" "Oh yes Joe still lives in Wyckoff,New Jersey and Miley in Malibu,California." "Thanks,talk to you tomorrow mom." I hung up before she could say goodbye. I stayed in my room for the rest of the night,contemplating on what I was going to do. My life was a mess, my true love dumped me and moved, the guy who put me back together won't speak to me, I have two siblings I just found out about, and to top at all off, my parents have lied to me my entire life. When I opened my eyes it was morning. 'I must have feel asleep' I thought. The cruiser was gone,Charlie had gone fishing. I made myself a bowl of cereal for breakfast. By the time I finished my bowl of cereal,I had decided on what I was going to do. I drove to the grocery store. Once inside I headed to where all the hair care products were,and got a bottle of blond hair dye. Next I went to the medicine aisle and found what I needed next to the eye drops. Color contacts. I chose green ones and went to the self check out cashiers.
When I got home I changed into old,crappy clothes. I followed the directions on the back of the box and when I was done,I had dirty blond hair. Just as I finished cleaning up,the phone rang. I ran downstairs to answer it,tripping twice. "Hello?" "Hey Bella,how are you?" "I'm fine dad,how are the fish?" "Good,look I'm going to be home later than usual." "Oh,really,why?" I asked,hiding the relief in my voice. "A couple of guys from the station and I are going to The Lodge tonight for dinner."
"Ok,what time will you be back?" "Eleven thirty-ish." came the reply. "Okay,have fun! Bye!" I said before hanging up. I ran upstairs and pulled out a suitcase,a duffle bag,and a backpack. I threw as many clothes as I could into the suitcase and duffle bag. I put my books,CD player, my favorite CD,and notebook into the backpack. I hid them in my closet. Now all I had to do was wait for the night to come. -It was 9:30. I had called a cab earlier and told them to arrive at the corner of my street in 45 minutes. I had retrieved my bags from the closet,and shoved some granola bars into the duffle bag. I had gotten the money I was saving and it was now currently in the pocket of my jeans. I wrote a note for Charlie telling him I was sorry,but I couldn't stay here any more,and not to look for me,I needed time to think,and I loved him and Renee. I put on my jacket,got my bags and walked to the corner. The cab came a few minutes later. The cab driver turned to me. "Where to kid?" he asked. "The airport," I replied. -When I got to the airport I bought a ticket to New Jersey. I caught the midnight flight and was in Jersey by 6:00. I had 300 dollars left after I rented a room in a cheap motel. I called around and by noon I had figured out where my brother, lived. His house was close to my motel. I walked there to his house in 30 minutes. I rang the doorbell. A middle-aged woman answered the door. "Hello,may I help you?" she asked pleasantly. "I'm looking for Joe." I answered.
"Ok,hold on,Joe,get your lazy butt down here now!" the woman yelled. A muffled answer came,followed by footsteps. The woman turned back to me. "Who are,again?" "Bella,Joe's sister." I replied. The woman turned to me with wide eyes. "What Aunt Ava?" We both turned to the stairs. There,at the bottom of the stairs was a tall teenage boy,probably 6'10 with brown eyes and shaggy black hair. His eyes landed on me. "Who's this?" "This is your sister,Bella." said my Aunt Ava. Joe and I stared at each other before running to each other "I've wanted to meet you forever," we both said in unison. We both laughed. Aunt Ava smiled at us. Aunt Ava spoke then. "Why are you down here?" I told them about Charlie,to how I found out,to running away. "Oh you poor dear,I'll go get lunch ready, you must be starving." she said before she ran into the kitchen Joe and I stared after her before he asked, "Why are you blond?" the same time I asked, "Why do you have black hair?" We laughed again and I explained to him how I didn't want to be found by someone and be dragged back to Forks. He explained to me how someone dared him to dye his hair black,and by the time the dare was over he thought the hair looked cooler.
We traded stories about growing up. He told me about the time he dyed Aunt Ava's hair pink,and I told him the time Renee got a mohawk. "Kids,lunch!" called Aunt Ava from the kitchen. We walked to the kitchen and three bowls of mac and cheese were awaiting us. "Do you like mac and cheese,dear?" "It's my favorite," pipped up Joe. I grinned "Mine too." We both digged in to the delicious meal. Through the meal I told Joe about Charlie and Renee, their divorce, Phoenix,and Phil.
By next week Joe and I became like a brother and sister. One minute we loved each other like siblings should,the next we were arguing about something stupid like who won Guitar Hero,which Joe taught me how to play,along with the guitar. Joe became the younger brother I'd always wanted,except when he didn't listen to me,kinda like Emmett. Emmett,man do I miss my big brother. I had also gotten into song writing,it helped me vent. I've already written 6 songs. Even better Joe and I were going I find Miley together. Aunt Ava and Uncle Brad were going to pay for the airfare and coming with us. We were about to land at LAX. "Please fasten your seat belts and return your seat to the up-right position,we are about to land at LAX." said the pilot. After we landed,we got our bags and got a cab and drove to the hotel. "So,how are we gonna find our little sis?" asked Joe. "I have no idea." I said. "Would it help if I told you she worked at the Seaview Mall?" asked Uncle Brad with a grin.
Joe and I sat up so fast we bumped heads. "Oww!"
25 minutes later we pulled up to the Seaview Mall. "Oh,crap!" The mall had 4 floors,and probably a hundred stores on each floor. "Any idea which stores she works in?" "Not a clue." "Okay,what are we going to do?" "How about I'll take the first and third floor,and you take the second and fourth floors." "Deal,we'll meet at the food court in two hours." I gave him a look. "The food court?" "I'm a guy, there's food there, do the math!" "Whatever, let's just start." I yelled while walking to one of the stores. "See ya!
I trudged over to the food court. I had gone to every store in the first and third floor and had asked if a Miley Swan worked there. Every store had said no. Joe better have had better luck than me. He did, apparently. With Joe, who was grinning broadly, was a girl, who had mahogany hair with chocolate brown eyes, and the same height as me. This girl was my sister, Miley. The next thing I knew, I was in the arms of my younger sister, who I had just met for the first time in my life, both of us wirh tears streaming down our cheeks.
"What is up with your guy's hair?"
Joe,Miley, and I were at the food court eating ice cream. "Some kid dared me to dye my hair, thought it looked cool so I kept it." "I didn't want anyone to find me so I dyed my hair and got color contacts. Well blond is so not you!" scoffed Miley "Come on,we're going to the salon." "Arrg." Joe and I both groaned. We walked into the hair salon. A guy with dirty blond hair and wearing tight jeans and a muscle shirt greeted us. "Heeyy! Miss Miley's here!" Joe shot me a look that said 'wtf?'. "Heeyy Dolliona!" The two did that 'celebraty air kiss' thing. "What does the Miss Miley need today?" "I need you to fix that," said Miley while pointing at my dirty blond hair. Dolliona walked around me, while stroking his chin. Suddenly he snapped his fingers and called out to someone. "Alana, cancel the rest of my appointments for today, I have alot of work to do on this one." cried Dolliona.
After what felt like hours, I was finally done. "Well darling, what do you think?" asked Dolliona. Miley was squealing on the side, Joe simply looked bored. I looked in the mirror. I now had dark hair, almost as dark as Joe's. I also had swept side bangs and my hair was now layered. "I like it," I said quietly. "Awesome!" squealed Miley, while throwing her arms around me. "Come on we have to get you some new clothes!" "NOO!" Joe and I screamed.
"Yes!" said Miley with a sinister smile. It was suddenly Barbie Bella all over again. It wasn't as bad as shopping with Alice but still. I felt sorry for Joe since it was he who had to carry about fifty bags.
The sun was setting as we made our way to the car. "..fun!" screamed Miley while doing something called her 'happy dance'. Suddenly she turned to us. "Your not dancing, why aren't you happy dancing!" she demanded placing her hands on her hips. "I would," said Joe weakly, "but I can't feel my legs." "I would...but I don't want to...ruin my heels. I said gesturing to the silver sparkly heels Miley forced me into. Miley narrowed her eyes at us. "Ok...suuurrre." "So where do you guys want to go now?" asked Joe. "You guys have to see the beach when the sun is setting!" cried Miley, "come on!"
Miley was right. The beach at sunset was beautiful, it was like a scene out of a movie. We sat by the water's edge. The sun was was joining with the water. The sun's reflection was in water,everything was calm and serene. "It's beautiful isn't it?" asked Miley,dreamily. "Whatever." snorted Joe Miley smacked him upside the head "This is why you'll never get a girlfriend!" "No, I'll get a girlfriend because of this," smirked Joe while lifting up his shirt to reveal his ripped stomach. "EWW!Put that away!" I screeched. "Yea, no one wants to see that!" agreed Miley.
I laughed, we had only known each other for a few hours, yet we were acting like brother and sisters.
"Come on guys!" called Miley. Miley,Joe and I were were going hiking, why, I don't know we all were clumsy. We were going to the Angeles Forest, an hour away from LA. It only took us 45 minutes to get there since Joe went a little over the speed limit. We made our way over the thick roots that stuck out of the earth, in all only tripping 6 times. We sat down for lunch by a waterfall, laughing and talking about life, and for a moment I forgot about my life in Forks, the Cullen's, Jacob. Then we heard a rustling in the trees. "What was that?" asked Miley, scared. "I don't know, get back." said Joe while gesturing for us to move. Then all hell broke lose. Something ran out of the trees and tackled Joe and bit him. Miley screamed in pain as the thing bit her next. I stared in horror as my siblings lay withering in pain. I looked up at the thing that did this to my siblings. Victoria.
Chapter 3 I stared at Victoria as she approached me. "Oh looky here, the little human doesn't have the big strong vampires to protect her, just a couple of helpless humans," said Victoria in a baby voice. I couldn't move, it was as if my feet were nailed to the ground. "The...The Cullens aren't here." I managed to get out.
She threw her head back and laughed. "I'm not here for the Cullens, I'm here for you." "Wh,why?" I whimpered "Don't cha know?" she asked in a sugary sweet voice. "It's only fair, mate for mate, your Eddie-kins killed my James, now I'm going to do the same." "Wha-what?" "Don't you get it you insignificant human?" she demanded "Revenge is sweet." I tried once again to move, keyword tried. "But I'm not going to kill you, I'm going to do something much worse, I'm going to make you exist on this earth forever, without your mate, like I have to now!" She lunged at me and sank her teeth into my neck. I cried out in pain, as I felt fire move though my veins, as if someone was setting me on fire. I heard my siblings cry out in pain too, she had changed them too. I let out another shriek before blacking out.
"Peter, I think she's waking up!" I heard a woman's voice. The voice sounded kind, motherly, like Esme's. "Ah,indeed they are." This time I heard a man's voice. I opened my eyes breathing heavily, even though I didn't have to now. I looked around, Joe was sitting in the corner looking shocked, with his knees pulled up to his chest. Miley hadn't woken up yet. "Don't panic dear, Peter will explain everything." "He doesn't have to explain, I know what I am know," I said. I was shocked. My voice was different, it wasn't the uneven tone it used to be, now it was like the voice of a Grammy Award winning singer or church bells.
I looked back up at the two people, they looked surprised. "Oh, what are you then, what have you been turned into?" asked the man. "I'm,I'm a vampire." The man named Peter, the woman and Joe looked at me. I looked up at the honey colored eyes of Peter and the woman. Both looked thoroughly shocked. "How do you know about our kind?" questioned the woman. "It's a long story," was my simple reply. "Well we can discuss this later, with everyone, the other one is waking up now." "Dear, why don't you go talk to your brother, he seems a little shaken up, my name's Elizabeth." said the woman while giving me a hug. I smiled at her, she smiled back and I instantly felt welcome. I walked over to Joe, not tripping once. I now walked with grace like that of a model's, maybe even more graceful than Alice. "You okay?" I asked Joe while giving my little brother a hug. "I never felt pain like that before, I just wanted to die that whole time." said Joe. I look at my brother, he looked stronger. His shoulders were broader and his arms were more muscular. His hair was still shaggy and black. He was as pale as ever. "When I woke up, I was so scared, I thought I was in heaven, but then Peter and Elizabeth told me what I had become." He broke off then. "Go on," I urged him gently. "I didn't believe them, until I looked in the mirror, I looked stronger than I had ever had in my entire life," he smiled as he said the last part. "Then I broke the window, I was confused, and I had to take it out on something, so I punched the window." I looked at the broken window on the south wall after he said this.
" I felt no pain, and then I realized I had red eyes." "Then you finally believed them?" I questioned. He nodded. "Are you going to meet everyone else?" he asked. "What?" "There are more of us in this family or coven, most of them are pretty nice." Joe said. "Oh, um, sure, where are they?" "Downstairs." "Thanks." "Are you sure you're okay?" "Yea, I just can't believe I broke a window." said Joe with a huge grin on his face. I rolled my eyes and walked of of the room. I passed a mirror in the hallway and looked in it. I stared back at the person in it. This person had dark brown hair that fell to her waist and side-swept bangs. A petite body, with curves in all the right places. She had high cheekbones and a thin face, with red eyes and pale pink lips. This was me now, I looked like how I thought I should have looked all my life, minus the blond hair and tan. "Amazing isn't it?" I turned around, standing behind me was a beautiful blond, a guy with brown hair, another guy with jet black hair, and girl with the same black hair that looked about in her early teens, and a little boy with wide gold eyes and dark brown hair, all of them amazingly beautiful. The blonde took a step forward and hugged me. "I'm Brandi." she said with a smile. The little boy bounded forward. "I'm Frankie!" he chirped, and hugged my waist.
I couldn't help but smile and hug the little boy back. The little boy finally released me and the two guys stepped forward. " Michael," said the one that looked older, as he shot me a smile and shook my hand. "Adrian," said the one with black hair. "I would love to stick around, but I have date." That was all he said before grabbing his jacket and walking out the door. The pre-teen girl ran forward. "Don't mind him, he always has a date, anyway I'm Alexa!" she said brightly while throwing her little arms around me. She reminded me of Alice. I smiled. "I'm Bella." I said quietly while staring at the floor boards. "We know," they all said in unison, with friendly smiles. "Oh and if you here moaning or any other strange inhuman sounds coming from Adrian's room tonight, don't be afraid, he's just 'getting to know his date better'." said Brandi with a roll of her eyes. "He has a girlfriend?" I asked. "He gets a new one every week, some human, some vampire." said Michael, with a hint of disgust in his voice. "Oh and by the way, after Peter, Michael and I found you guys and Peter and Michael carried you guys back here and I faked your guys' death, I hoped you don't mind being mauled by a bear as the cause of your death." said Brandi. "It's ok, at least I didn't choke on my sandwich or something." All of us chuckled, and turned to the stairs where Peter,Elizabeth,Joe and Miley were descending. Miley looked pale and a bit freaked out,wouldn't you be if you found out you had just been turned into a mythical creature? She was even prettier now. She had wavy brown hair with highlights that went to the middle of her back. She was curvier and had cherry red lips. "I called everyone else, they'll be here in just a second." said Peter. I looked to Joe for information on who 'everyone else' is, but he merely shrugged.
Just then the door opened and a bunch of people came though the door. There were 2 group of blonds, 4 groups of brunettes ,all of them with gold eyes,some darker than others. "Joe,Miley,Bella, these are our neighbors and close family friends." "Hi!" "Hello" "Hey" I looked out the window and saw that there were about a dozen houses surrounding ours.I looked back at the people who were now seated around the couches and chairs. They all had friendly smiles on, even the blonds. Which was a surprise, considering my past experience with blonds. "Bella, Joe, Miley why don't you guys sit down, and Bella can tell us about how she knows about our kind." started Peter. Everybody's eyes turned on me. I looked down, if I could've blushed, I would've. Elizabeth, sensing my discomfort, gently encouraged to me. "Go on dear." I looked at her and I felt at ease. "Well, it all started when I moved to Forks, Washington..."
"And that's all I remember ." I finished telling the story of my life in Forks, and looked up. Everybody was looking at me shocked. A tall blond lady, probably the same age as Elizabeth, was the first to speak. "Oh, well what guy would be dumb enough to break up with you?" "Then leave you in the middle of the forest?" added a blond man, who had him arm around the woman. "I'm Lisa, and this is my husband Mick." The man and woman stood up and both gave me hugs. Two other blonds, who looked the same age as me, stood up and walked over to us. The four of them were obviously posing as a family. "This is Ashley and Lucas." The two blonds smiled at Joe, Miley and I.
"I'm Ashley, nice to meet you." Hey, blond and not conceded, that's something new. "I'm Lucas."
After that, everything was a blur. It was an afternoon of introductions and finding a home within the Facinelli Family. I smile every time I think back at that memory. That day I found an awesome family, and made friendships for eternity. Let me introduce you to my friends/band members. First there's Ashley. She is insanely beautiful. She has honey-blond hair, a thin frame, and an awesome smile. And unlike past blonds met before, she's really nice, not conceded, and she's actually one of my best friends. She has a bubbly personality. She has a beautiful voice, that doesn't disappoint fans during concerts. Her power is the ability to change her's and anyone's appearance, that includes outfits. She also drives a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. After Ashley is her 'twin brother' Lucas. He has the same honey-blonde hair, and is lean, but muscular. He as an awesome singing voice and can play the guitar. He's an awesome friend and great at Guitar Hero. He's an illusionist. That comes in handy during red carpet events when we have to walk in the sunlight, or at school during lunchtime. He drives a Mazda RX-8. Ashley's and Lucas' 'parents' are Lisa and Mick Evans. Mick's a lawyer. Vanessa is petite and has long glossy brown curls. She's sometimes quiet and shy, but once you get to know her as can be outgoing and loud. She reminds me of Angela. Vanessa and I both love reading. Turns out I'm not the only one who reads Wuthering Heights too much. Her power is that she can see the real you. Like if your putting on an act that you're sweet and innocent, but inside you're a wild child, she knows. She has a soulful singing voice and drives a 2008 Chevrolet Corvette. She has a 'little sister' named Stella, at least that's what the media thinks. Her 'parents' are Gina and Greg Hudgens. Greg's a lawyer too. Ryne has short black hair and like all the other guys, is muscular. He's funny and a great friend, but sometimes, he's a bit slow at figuring things out. He's great at video games and according to obsessed fan girls, has a 'killer smile'. his power is teleportation. It works sometimes when we actually arrive at the correct destination, but he still needs work on his power, Like that time we wanted to go to the mall, but we ended up on Mars. That was strange and bizarre. He drives a 2009 Acura RL. His parents are Cindy and Paul Sanborn, and he's an only child. His dad's a dentist. Monique has wavy black hair, and a curvy figure. She gives great advice and is such a sweetheart. Her power is knowing everything that happened in the past. She's a great friend, who likes to read, and is really smart. She has a strong singing voice and can dance like there's no tomorrow. She drives a
Infinity G37 Coupe. Her parents are Stacy and John Coleman. John's a lawyer too. Corbin has muscular build and a wild afro. Seriously, once I dropped an penny in his hair, it took him an hour too find! Anyway, he's funny and is like an older brother to me. His power is the ability to give you bad luck, so don't make him mad! He, like all the other guys, is obsessed with video games. He gives a MG XPower SV-R. His parents are Martha and David Bleu. David's a flight engineer. Selena has straight dark brown hair. She's outgoing and has a bubbly personality. She's one of the nicest people I have ever met and has an awesome singing voice. Her power is that she can see your deepest desires. She's a tough competitor in video games and has two 'brothers'. There's her older brother David and her younger brother Jake. Her parents are David and Maria Gomez. David's a doctor and works with Peter in the same hospital. She drives a 2009 Lincoln MKS. Then there's Jason. He has shaggy blond hair and is muscular. He's one of the funniest and nicest people I have ever met. But I could never like him more than a brother, despite the media who thinks we're dating. I mean, Jali, what kind of name is that? Anyway he's one of my best friends, and has the cutest crush on Selena. Everybody knows about it, except Selena. His power is mind speaking, which comes in handy during class, it's much better than passing notes. He drives a 2010 Chevy Camaro. His parents are Daniel and Michelle Dolley. Jeffery works at the hospital. And last but not least, there are my two siblings Joe and Miley. They took the news pretty well about what they had become. A little shaken at first, but they got over it once they discovered the cool things vampires can do. And both of them have powers. Joe has telekinesis, the ability to move things with his mind. Joe also can sing and has written a couple of songs. He also knows how to play guitar. He drives an Audi a5/S5. Miley has the power to make you forget. All she has to do is look at you, and you can forget what you were going to do or say. I taught her how to play guitar and she can sing pretty well. She drives a Ferarri 612 Scaglietti. Then there's me. My power? I can tell when you're lying and make you tell the truth. I drive a Lexus SC 430. I know how to play guitar, keyboard, and piano and sing, of course. Also there's a power all of us have. And when I say all of us I mean everybody in the band. We can make anyone sleep by singing if we want to. Even vampires. Which is awesome, and it also comes in handy when Adrian decides to 'get to know his date better'. We simply sing ourselves to sleep. Tonight we were going to perform at the Luca Club. It was the club where we were first discovered. I remember the day like it was yesterday...
We all had just moved to Oregon a few days ago. We all lived in a private community, just us, and you needed to type in a code to get in. Our houses were more like mansions, and had a large piece of land surrounding us which we were going to use for playing baseball. We decided to return to school next year. Right now it was May and we had just entered a popular club. People were dancing, drinking and some were trying their hand at karaoke. I remember we all had just sung karaoke and then a man approached us. We stopped talking and turned to the man. Miley was the first to speak. "May we help you?" The man cleared his throat and said, "Hello, my name is David McCartney, I'm a representative for Rave records and would like to talk to you guys about a chance for a career in the entertainment industry." We all stared at the man like he was crazy. I used my powers on him to see if he was really a representative from Rave Records. "I have worked for Rave records for 10 years now," he suddenly blurted out. We all nodded. At least we knew he wasn't trying to scam us. "Uh...we would have to talk to our parents first." said Ashley. "Of course, here's my card, call me if you guys accept." he said before walking away. That night we went home and talked to Peter and everyone about it. By sunrise we had made our decisions. We were going to accept the offer. Ashley could make us look older as the years went by, Lucas could make us look normal at red carpet events and secretly, we all wanted to have a chance at fame. But I, because I didn't want to be recognised, went by the name Aliana Facinelli in the public. To make a long story short by the time school started and we had walked through the doors of Pacific High School, posing as freshmen, our debut CD had been number 1 on the Billboard charts for 2 weeks and we got mobbed by the entire student body.
Right now it was the last day of Winter Break. School started tomorrow. We arrived at Luca Club at 10:00 since we had to be home by 11:30. Yeah we have a curfew don't laugh at that! It's all part of keeping us grounded and out of trouble. Ha! What kind of trouble could a group of teenage vegetarian vampires get into? Anyway when we arrived the owner, Mark, greeted us
warmly. We were going to sing songs from our up coming debut solo albums. I cheered on Joe, Ashley, and Monique before going up. I had just finished singing my first song when I looked up and met the eyes of 4 shocked vampires. Oh crap.
Chapter 4 Edward's POV
I gripped the steering wheel tightly, as Mary drowned on and on about how she found the perfect lipgloss shade yesterday. Alice, Jasper, and Emmett all looked out the window, trying to drown out the sound of her talking. Only Rosalie payed attention. Meet Mary, my mate, who I love. ... Aw, who am I kidding I dispise her! I dispise her with every fiber of my being! I know that's very unlike me, but I can't stand her! The only reason she's my mate is because of Rosalie. Confused? Alright let me start over. It all started seven years ago... Flashback I stayed curled up in a ball of self induced pain and agony in the corner of my room. I had been like this for days now, maybe even weeks, I didn't know. Just then the door burst open and Alice stormed in. "Okay Edward, enough of this foolish behavior, you were the one who left Bella, and now it's destroying everybody!" she screeched. I flinched at the mention of Bella. God, it hurts even to think about her. But I had to leave her, it was for her own safety and she was better off without me. She deserves to grow up, go to college, get a job, find a husband, have kids, be happy. I felt jealous at the thought of Bella having a husband, but that's what she deserves, to be happy. I voiced my thoughts to Alice. "She was happy when she was with you," Alice continued with her rant. "You both were happy when you were with each other,I've never seen you smile
that much when you were with her, you were positively glowing when you were with her!" Alice was now pacing around the room. "But then you just had to leave because of one measly slip up, and suddenly you're Mr. Self-Induced-Pain again!" I looked down at the floorboards, she was right. After I left I wandered by myself, just wanting to wallow in my self pity, until Jasper and Emmett found me and dragged me back. I mostly stayed in my room just sitting in the corner. "Edward, you are causing yourself and this whole family to suffer!" I shot her a look. "Oh you know it's true, Jasper can't even be in the same room with you, Emmett doesn't crack jokes anymore, Rosalie is... well she's misable in her own way, Esme never smiles anymore, Carlisle keeps to his office, and I miss my best friend!" wailed Alice as she plopped down beside me. "It's true dude." I looked toward the door. The whole family had gathered at the doorway. Emmett stepped forward, and placed his hand on my shoulder. "Dude, come on we all know she made our family complete, can't we go back and see her, I miss my little sis!" pleaded Emmett. "Emmett's right dear, none of us have been truly happy here." added Esme. "Come on Edward! Go see Bella, make some sappy love speech, get on your hands and knees and beg for her forgivness, anything!" begged Alice. I sighed. They were right. Bella had become part of the family, she completed us, she was the love of my life...I mean existance. "Alright," I said while getting up. "Let's go win back Bella!" I said while allowing a smile grow on my face for months. The rest of the family cheered, well except Rosalie who simply rolled her eyes. I didn't let her negetive thoughts get to me. I was going to get back the love of my life existince, and nothing was going to stop me. After changing my clothes and getting in the Volvo, we were speeding down the highway towards Forks. Everyone was excited to see Bella.
'Alright I get to see my little sis! Finally!' 'I get to see my best friend! Oooo! We've got to go shopping!' 'Okay you can do this, remember humans are friends, not food, humans are friends, not food...' 'Oh I am so glad to finally see Bella, she always was a lovely girl...' 'You can do this son, you love her' 'Stupid human' Alright, almost everyone, but Rosalie's thoughts didn't affect me much. Just the thought of being able to hold Bella again was enough, to be able to look into her warm chocolate brown eyes, to run my hand through her beautiful hair, to finally kiss her... I was still lost in my thoughts as we pulled up into the Swan's house. Bella's ancient truck, and the cruiser were in the driveway. I approched the front door, feeling a calming feeling come over me. I threw a thankful look to Jasper and knocked on the door. I was shocked when the door swung open and a blood-shot eyed Charlie stood there, staring back at me. I cleared my throat. "Hello Charlie, could my family and I see Bella?" Charlie stared back at me, then choked back sobs. "Bella's not here." "Where is she?" "She's...she's gone." "She's gone!?" "Gone where?" Charlie now fully broke down into sobs. Carlisle and Esme stepped foward and suggested we all go inside. We all entered the house and took a seat in the living room. Charlie finally calmed down enough to be able to talk. He looked up at me.
"I shouldn't even have let you in here after what you did to Bella, but she loved you, so you deserve to know what happened." 'Wonder how the boy will take it?' 'Take what' I wondered. Charlie answered my thought. " So one day Bella decides to clean the house..." " and all she left for me was a note." Bella, my Bella, left. The whole room was silent with shock. Carlisle was the first to speak. "Don't worry Charlie, we'll find Bella." assured Carlisle. "No, Bella didn't want to be found, and..." he broke off, choking back sobs. "What happened Charlie?" questioned Esme gentley. "She found them, her brother and sister..." "Then what's wrong Charlie?" asked Alice. Charlie took a deep breath."One day the kids went for a hike in the Angeles forest, they sat down for a moment, and and... oh God," "What happened Charlie?" I asked frantically, his thoughts were unreadable. "They got attacked by a bear, the...the ranger couldn't find their bodies," was all Charlie could get out before he collasped into sobs. The whole family was silent. Emmett especially. Everyone's thoughs were the same. Bella's gone. Bella was gone. I would never be able to see her again, to see her beautiful blush, to hold her small frail body, to run my hands though her beautiful mahogany hair...she was... gone. "Is that them?" asked Esme suddenly. Esme was staring a picture on the mantle. There was Bella,she had a small smile, next to her, a teenage boy with black hair, then a girl with light brown hair.
"Yea, that's them, her brother and sister." choked out Charlie. Then burst into sobs again. We chose this time to leave, but I felt numb. I couldn't move. Italy. That was the only thought that ran though my mind. Emmett had to carry me out. The thought of never being to see Bella again was too much to bear. Just as we approched the cars Alice had a vision. "Edward Cullen, you are not going to the Volturi!" she suddenly shrieked. The next thing I know I'm being shoved into the back of my Volvo, while Alice and Emmett got in the front. Rosalie and Jasper got in with me in the back. "Edward, I know this is a huge blow to you, but Bella wouldn't want you to mope for her, she would want you to be happy." said Alice even though she was starting to sob tearless sobs. The car started and I stared out the window my cold heart breaking bit by bit as we drove further and further away from the Swans. After we had returned home, the family was worse. No one left the house for an entire year, until Rosalie went out to a vampire club. While at the club she met Mary and they became friends. She took Mary home and she took an interest in me. No matter how many times I turned her down as politely as I could, she kept made making less than oblivous flirting attems at me. I finally couldn't take ot anymore and Carlisle had to ask her to leave. But she wouldn't leave. She told us she used to be part of the Volturi and is still in contact with Aro. She said she would have us destroyed if she couldn't have me. I couldn't risk my family, so I married her. No one like her, not even Esme, but Rosalie. After we were married she became more unbearable. Rosalie must have told her about Bella because one day Mary comes home from shopping her hair dyed mahogany brown and cut shorter and was wavy. Everybody was inferiated that she was trying to replace Bella, well of course except Rosalie, she actually bought Mary a beat-up old truck to drive around and a collection of Jane Austen novels. That was when the family became divided. Everyone shunned Rosalie, even Emmett. They couldn't believe that Rosalie would sink that low. I couln't believe Mary would actually try to become my Bella. She was nowhere as nice, sweet, or smart as my Bella... End Flashback "and then she was like these jeans are this years low, but I knew those jeans were last year's low and I wanted this year's low, so I say in this fake nice voice, excuse me, but these are last year's low, and I want this years low. Then she told me that she was a professional and knew what she was doing." sneered Mary. "Like, how disrepectful is that?" Rosalie nodded, her blond curls bouncing. I rolled my eyes, Mary was like Rosalie, only worse.
I pulled to the club. We had moved to Portland a few days ago and Alice insisted we go out for the first time in a year. This club was famous for making celebraties. We sat at a table at the center of the club and the owner went out on stage and introduced the music group. This particular music group was famous for their teen fanbase, talent and good looks, at least that's was Alice read in a magazine. None of us had seen the group, not even Alice, she couldn't see them for some reason. I listened to the first three acts, they were pretty good, maybe a little too much pop, but still good. I kept my head down, just listening, still thinking about my Bella. I still missed her after all these years. Her blushed, her laugh, her beautiful lips, everything, I missed everything about her. I was still thinking about Bella when the owner announced the next performer. "... she's a beautiful young lady, please welcome Ali Facinelli!" I heard the crowd cheer as the singer came on stage. I heard Alice, Emmett, Jasper and Rosalie gasp, but thought nothing of it. the singer started the song. Just talk yourself up And tear yourself down You've hit your one wall Now find a way around Well what's the problem? You've got a lot of nerve So what did you think I would say? No you can't run away, no you can't run away So what did you think I would say? No you can't run away, no you can't run away You wouldn't I never wanted to say this You never wanted to stay I put my faith in you, so much faith And then you just threw it away You threw it away I'm not so naive My sorry eyes can see The way you fight shy Of almost everything Well, if you give up You'll get what you deserve So what did you think I would say? No you can't run away, no you can't run away So what did you think I would say?
No you can't run away, no you can't run away You wouldn't I never wanted to say this You never wanted to stay I put my faith in you, so much faith And then you just threw it away You threw it away You were finished long before We had even seen the start Why don't you stand up, be a man about it? Fight with your bare hands about it now I never wanted to say this You never wanted to stay well did you I put my faith in you, so much faith And then you just threw it away I never wanted to say this You never wanted to stay I put my faith in you, so much faith And then you just threw it away Wow, she was good. She had a strong voice and had an almost punk sound to her. Then I smelled her. She had that unqiue mix of strawberries and freesia. 'Edward, you might want to look up' My head snapped up and my eyes widened in this disbelief. There glaring slighty at me was Bella, with golden eyes.
Chapter 5 I froze. The four pairs vampire eyes- oh, make that six pairs vampire eyes, him and some female vampire who was practically straddling him, looked up. 'Bella, are you alright?' 'Als, what's wrong'
'They're here.' I heard all my friends and siblings gasp in their minds. 'So he found some new bimbo? He seriously dumped you for that? And why the heck does that girl looked like you?' 'Lucas, shut up,do you want to leave Bells?' I smiled Ashley really was a true friend. 'No, no it's ok.' 'Hey, Ali, want me to beat him up?' 'No, Corbin, you guys can't beat him up.' 'Dang' 'Come on' 'Please!' I rolled my eyes, the guys were great friends, but sometimes they were so overprotective. Luckily, that whole conversation only took two seconds, so the audience was still cheering when we were finished. "Thank you this next song is dedicated to someone very special. And to that very special person, I want you to know, you're so yesterday! Hit it guys!" You can change your life - if you wanna You can change your clothes - if you wanna If you change your mind Well, that's the way it goes But I'm gonna keep your jeans And your old black hat - cause I wanna They look good on me You're never gonna get them back At least not today, not today, not today 'cause Chorus: If it's over, let it go and Come tomorrow it will seem
So yesterday, so yesterday I'm just a bird that's already flown away Laugh it off let it go and When you wake up it will seem So yesterday, so yesterday Haven't you heard that I'm gonna be okay You can You can You can But I've say you're bored - if you wanna act real tough - if you wanna say you're torn heard enough
Thank you... you made my mind up for me When you started to ignore me Do you see a single tear It isn't gonna happen here At least not today, not today, not today 'cause Chorus If you're over me, I'm already over you If it's all been done, what is left to do How can you hang up if the line is dead If you wanna walk, I'm a step ahead If you're moving on, I'm already gone If the light is off then it isn't on At least not today, not today, not today 'cause Chorus 2X I finished the song to very loud cheers from the audience. I smiled and snuck a glance at the Cullens. Emmett had gotten over the shock and was now cheering with the rest of the crowd, Jasper, because of Emmett was also cheering. I let a very small smile creep onto my face I really did miss my big brothers. Yes I considered Jasper a brother, even if he didn't know it. Alice seemed frustrated, Rosalie seemed bored and Edward and his...mate were still in shock. Well Edward was still in shock, his mate was glaring at me. 'Dude she looks like an anorexic ostrich.' I tried hard not to laugh, while everybody else snorted. That came from Corbin, I knew there was a reason why he was an awesome guy and older brother. "Thanks, here's the next song." I manged to choke out.
Its six A.M. and I'm wide awake Cause I can't stop thinking About the stuff you were saying to me And I can't let is slide The paper's not here yet the suns not up But I'm not afraid to tell you what I feel inside I had one of those dreams that makes it all so Clear to me now I got a whole new perspective It's so Clear to me now You can't treat me that way It appears to me How long you tried to make me think it was me Who was being the fake So Clear Why did I smile when I hurt inside Said I was okay when I knew it's a lie I wanted to believe in you You took your chances and one was me So I'll just forgive you and set you free I'm on my way Yeah I'm stepping out of the haze and its so Chorus I wanna put the past behind Try and maybe I can find better days First time in a while I think I even feel a smile on my face Chorus Suns going down on a Saturday And I feel all right and I feel OK I managed to finish the rest of the songs without bursting out into laughter at the comments my friends were making about Mary, yep that was her name, I heard her and Rosalie talking earlier. Once everybody was done we sang one last song together. We don’t have time left to regret (hold on) It will take more than common sense (hold on) So stop your wondering take a stand (hold on) There's more to life than just to live (hold on)
I took a deep breath and joined in, while looking directly at the Cullens. 'cause an empty room can be so loud It's too many tears to drown them out So hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on One single smile a helping hand It's not that hard to be a friend So don’t give up stand 'til the end There's more to life than just to live 'cause an empty room can be so loud It's too many tears to drown them out So hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on When you love someone And they break your heart don’t give up on love Have faith, restart Just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on When it falls apart And your feeling lost All your hope is gone don’t forget to hold on, hold on 'cause an empty room can be so loud It's too many tears to drown them out So hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on When you love someone And they break your heart don’t give up on love Have faith, restart Just hold on, hold on 'cause an empty room can be so loud It's too many tears to drown them out So hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on When you love someone And they break your heart don’t give up on love Have faith, restart Just hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on We took one final bow and I took one final look at the Cullens. Emmett was cheering his head off, acting like one of the obsessed fan girls, Jasper looked
stressed, probably because of the emotions in here, Alice was staring at us, frustrated, and Rosalie, still seemed bored. And then there was them. He had snapped out of his trance minutes ago and was now staring at me with what looked like pain and jealousy in his eyes. 'Why would he be jealous? He doesn't love me, plus, he's got the her.' I wondered mentally. 'Well, for one thing, your smart, beautiful, funny' 'Talented, lovable, kind' 'Caring, lovely, and last but not least...' 'A GREAT PERSON!!' cheered all my friends in the heads. 'Aww, thanks guys, you're the greatest friends I could ever have!' I cried, in my head. We all headed off the stage and toward the sea of paparazzi near the front exit. We got into the cars and headed home, but as I got into Joe's Audi I snuck a peek at the Cullens who had just left the club. They were staring at our direction as we got into the cars. They all had the same expression on their faces: sorrow. Well, except Mary and Rosalie, they seemed bored. Joe pulled out of the parking lot and attempted to drive us home without running over any paparazzi. I took one last look at the Cullens as Joe started onto the street. They had gotten into the Volvo and were headed the other way. Emmett was staring through the back window, right at me. I quickly turned back and tried to concentrate on Joe's driving as we got onto the highway and disappeared into the night.
