(Disclaimer I do not own any of the characters all rights go to Stephanie Meyer.) Just what happens to them in this story.
Story line: 200 years ago, Edward left Bella, and never came back. Victoria came after her, planning to take Edward’s love away from him, the same as he had done to her. She would kill Bella so they could never again meet. Never again feel each others love, never again gaze into each other’s eyes, and never hold each other, this was their punishment it was the same punishment she would endure. But when she came for her, she found that Edward had decided he didn’t love Bella anymore. She was enraged she knew that her plan was now flawed. It would do nothing to him now. Or would it? Dum Dum DUM!!!! Prologue: Two Centuries Ago Victoria P.O.V There was to be pain. I would make them suffer worse than they would think ever possible. How dare they continue on as though nothing had happened!!! I watched as they sat in that school of theirs. That brute and his pet!!! Something was different about him… Edward wasn’t it. His name was practically a curse. He was sitting next to his mate in the confines of that room,
his jaw was tight, and his eyes looked just as mine did, tortured. What reason did he have to grieve? My life, my love, James, was taken from me. By these monsters!!! What did he lose? NOTHING. ABSOLUTLY NOTHING!!! But I was going to fix that soon. My life for HIS. Bella P.O.V We sat there in English class together, Edward and I, but something was different about him. When he touched me, when he looked at me, even told me he loved me. It was as if…I don’t know…it was as if he didn’t want to be there. Like he was simply following protocol. I was worried. For days he had been like this. At first I thought it had been about my birthday party, which was the worst birthday in history I might add, I had tried to tell him it was nothing that Jasper didn’t mean anything by it, it really wasn’t his fault. Anyone could see that. Only I could be the one to get a freakin’ paper-cut opening presents!!! He agreed it wasn’t a big deal, but nothing had changed in his eyes, they were still just as cold and distant as before. I have had butterflies in my stomach ever since that day. After that day he stopped staying overnight. He only touched me when he felt needed to. A simple peck on the cheek when he dropped me off at home, holding hands in the hall, that sort of thing. It hurt me. But it hurt more to look into his eyes. The eyes that once held mine with so much passion and beauty now held me for another reason. He looked as though he was being burned. I had to get him to snap out of this
TODAY!!! I needed him happy no matter what. After school we would talk again, but this time…I would see him smile…he would be happy… and this time…I would do everything in my power to see this happen. Things were going to change, for the better. Later that day: “You…don’t…want…me.” “No” he said confidently. And with that… my world shattered. (Sorry ‘bout cutting that scene short –REALLY SHORT- but you got the idea. If you need a review of that scene check out New Moon. ) Chapter 1: Goodbye Miss Swan!!! V.P.O.V This was what I had been waiting for. He and his family had left her. Unprotected, and open for ME. I had been observing everyday at the school waiting for them. But they had never showed. Neither he, nor his family, or even the Swan girl, showed up for school the next day. The next week the girl started to show up again. She seemed dazed and confused. For two solid months I observed her. I knew he wouldn’t be gone much longer, and I had to move fast. ‘Tonight.’ I thought to myself. ‘The girl dies tonight.’
B.P.O.V …This isn’t real… This isn’t real… This isn’t real… He DOES love me… He DOES love me… He DOES love me… He has to… He has to… please? (P.S. this is during her “zombie” phase. She’s in a total daze so – to quote Edward- “nothing of consequence” is going to happen in her mind. That’s all she thinks about. Him. The part below is after she gained partial control of herself ;) So she can now actually talk.) B.P.O.V How could I have not seen? How could I not notice? He hadn’t felt the same for me anymore and it took me ‘til he eventually had to just come out and say it. I laughed at myself. “God how could I have been so stupid?” I whispered to myself. It was rhetorical of course. Love is blind. If I had paid any attention at all I would have seen. Seen his resistance, I would have felt it somehow. That is if I hadn’t been blind in love. It’s kind of ironic. He wanted far AWAY from me…at the same time I ONLY wanted him. Huh who knew? Life without Edward was dull and bleak. That’s if you consider this life. I had just learned to speak in complete sentences and using words other than ‘he’s gone’ or ‘come back’ or the ever popular ‘please… Edward’. I was screaming out into the night, every time I closed my eyes. I started to take coffee to school every morning. Once I had accidentally fallen asleep in class, it
wouldn’t have been so bad except for the fact that I had screamed in agony during the middle of class. Mike had woken me up and the entire class looked at me as if I was having my soul ripped out in front of them. A mixture of shocked and sympathetic expressions from those who had heard my cry of pain. Even Mr. Mills, my history teacher, looked at me like he too was going to cry. Without thinking I packed up my things and left the room. I spoke to no one and didn’t look back. Needless to say I didn’t return to any of my classes that day. After I was home, I called Charlie, he wasn’t happy I left. But he understood why, and told me do whatever I had to. Because I WAS going back. TOMORROW. He had made that pretty clear. I knew what I was going to do. And I knew it was going to hurt like hell. I was going back to where it all started. My hurt, my pain, my death. I walked up that small path remembering that day. “Come for a walk with me” he told me. I had obeyed. First mistake. “Bella we’re leaving” I had assumed this was a possibility so I was ready. “Why now? Another year-” he cut me off "Bella, it's time. How much longer could we stay in Forks after all? Carlisle can barely pass for thirty. And he's claiming thirty-three now. We'd have to start over soon regardless," huh? That threw me off what did this have to do with anything? Uh oh did he mean? “When you say we-” Second mistake I thought I was going with him.
Only more mistakes had been made after that and I didn’t want to think about them. I was standing in the exact same place now, as I had been then. Everything was the same and yet at the same time everything was different. The trees looked the same, but everything was changed after that day the forest became just that. A forest. Once those trees had captured my attention with there misted wonder. The light that trickled down from above was truly a sight to behold. But now it was poison that dripped from the sunlight above. Killing everything in its path. Just as it killed my heart. I turned back to go down the path once again. Back to reality, back to pain, when a twig snapped from behind me pulling me from my reverie. My head snapped around and I saw the face of someone I had never thought I would see again. There, standing in the middle of the path, was Victoria, her fire red hair ablaze falling around her shoulders wildly. “Victoria” I whispered, my voice barely auditable to my own ears. She smiled her perfect lips parted showing off a pair of glistening white teeth. “Hello Bella” She called. Her voice was and musical, but at the same time, it had a menacing quality to it. “Where’s your Edward?” she continued. I flinched at sound of his name. She noticed. “I don’t know” I answered honestly. She laughed then asked, “Does he not tell you where he leaves to? You ARE his pet after all.” She
continued. “Does he not worry about your sanity? Or even your safety?” “No. No he doesn’t.” My lips moved of their own accord. “I highly doubt that.” She sneered. “He loves you more that his own life. He killed my love to protect his.” I couldn’t take this. Hearing how things used to be. It was like twisting the dagger inside my heart. Causing it to rip and pull even more. “You’re wrong.” I told her. “He left me. He told me didn’t want me anymore. That I wasn’t good for him and then he left me.” As her eyes burned. Burned hotter than the sun and with one thousand times the intensity. “What!?! What do you mean he left you?” “I told you. He said he didn’t love me then ditched me.” Tears streamed down my face. She had me up, off my feet, pinned to a tree now. “You’re lying!” She screamed at me. Teeth bared and eyes burning me with intensity. “I wish…” was all I could say. My voice dead. She loosened her grip and let me down to the ground. Suddenly she looked determined and frustrated. “Then I wish you a long life human. May you find love again.” I flinched when she wished this. Victoria looked defeated, like every piece of her had been hanging in the balance and now they had fallen and she was coming apart at the seams. She turned to leave. “Wait!!!!!” I cried. She turned around a cold mask on her face. I knew that face, it was the same as the one
I used, when lying to people here in Forks, a disguise used to mask pain and sorrow. “Can you do me something?” I asked suddenly. “What?” She asked as she looked at me. “Kill Me.” I begged her. V.P.O.V. “Can I ask you something” What more could she possibly want from me... I turned around to face Bella with empty eyes, what was the point to anything anymore, why should I even bother? “What” I asked in a monotone. My soul was frozen, time…had become…meaningless. I looked into her impossibly deep eyes. So unnatural, I had never actually paid attention to her before. Bella was different even to me that was obvious this was not the same girl I saw in the field that day. She was different. It was as if the sheet that blinded her had been removed. She saw the world for the cruel, heartless place it really was. “Kill Me.” She begged. Why would she ask such a request? Was he truly that vital to her that without him there was nothing left? Please she’s human. They don’t feel that kind of love. But here this human…she made me feel for her. But why, why would this insignificant human matter tome in the slightest? Then it hit me…Bella reminds me of myself. Bella lost her love just as I lost mine. And what made it worse was James didn’t have a choice in leaving
me, but Edward did have a choice. He chose to leave her like a child’s used toy. He had his fun and left. Why? Even now I can’t believe he left her like he did… He hurt her badly enough that here we are and she’s begging me to kill her. To end the pain of what he did to her. ‘Poor girl’ I thought to myself. Here I had come to kill this girl thinking of only hurting him and now I wanted nothing more than for him to pay for what he did to us. Because of his actions both of us will suffer ‘til death. Death. Bella was trying to have me deliver hers to her now. Nearly a minute had passed since she asked me to end her life for her. But… “I can’t…” I told her and my voice cracked. The hope that had developed in her eyes froze over and despair replaced it. “Oh” She whispered low enough that I almost didn’t hear her. She lowered her gaze to the forest floor and looked as if she was to cry at any moment. If only there was a way to help her see life differently than what she knows. There is hope for her there has to be…such a kind person. Surely she shouldn’t be doomed to a life of misery and unhappiness. YES!!! I had a plan but it was her decision. It had to be hers. This was life-changing, and she needed to make that choice herself. But how do I ask her? “Bella?” I asked timidly, I wasn’t sure how to continue.
She looked up at me tears in her eyes now, questioning me. I’ll take that as her telling me to continue… “Bella I have another alternative…you know other than death…but I don’t know how to ask you…” She looked up now with apparent curiosity in her eyes. “I could…um…change you…and you can stay with me. If you wanted to… I just can’t kill you Bella, you see… you remind me so much of myself. I just mean that well…we both know this pain. Pains that can’t be erased by time alone…but you know that’s only if you wanted me to change you…” She looked at me like I was speaking Japanese and in turn my voice trailed off. “You wouldn’t want me around…Edward” she winced when she said his name. “Edward didn’t want me and he was supposed to love me… no one else will either” and she continued under her breath and said “No one wants me…especially not as an immortal annoyance…” Damn him. That son of a batch of cookies (A./N. inside joke (^_^) “Bella” I spoke slowly “not EVERYONE leaves you” “Will I ever have to see this place again?” Strange question but okay I’ll go with it. “No I suppose not” She sighed “Okay then…yes I’ll go with you.”
Chapter 3: My New Life B.P.O.V My name is Isabella James. I have been a vampire for about two hundred years now. I don’t remember much of my human life. But what I DO… I really wish I didn’t remember. His name was Edward. I wish I didn’t remember him because he left me heartbroken and alone. He told me he loved me and that we would always be together. He… LIED!!! Big time. Three days after I turned eighteen he told me the truth. He didn’t actually love me at all. In my ignorant human years I believed him. I should have trusted my instincts the ones that said ‘you aren’t good enough for him’. If I had I would have saved myself from a lot of hurt. I blamed myself after he left, ‘if only I could have been … he would have stayed’ or ‘if only I had told him… he never would have left’. But when my mother changed me I realized the truth, he never cared at all. I was just a human pet to him. And when he was done with me he tossed me aside like a child’s broken toy. There was absolutely nothing I could have done differently. So all of my sorrow turned, morphed and changed into hate. He had no right to toy with me like that. But enough about him… My new family has always been there for me so I have no complaints there. I live in a coven of three, there is my creator and mother (for all intents and purposes) Victoria. She has always been there for me.
She was there in my infancy (in my vampire life that is) to where I am now. She has supported me in everything I have done. If it wasn’t for her…I shudder to think where I would be. Though, to some people, she may not seem like the mothering type, she somehow found her way into my heart. Then I have my little sister… Holly. She was changed at the physical age of six. She has been a vampire for one hundred years now. She is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Immortal beauty on a six year old makes one hell of a combination. We had a run-in the Volturi a while back. Now that was a visit I am not likely to forget that is if vampires were even able to forget things. They were “concerned” with how young she was when my mother decided to turn her. My mother was amazing with her gift. She was able to elude even the Volturi’s oh so famous tracker-boy Demetri. Holly is ‘special’ as well which certainly didn’t help our cause any. You see Holly can change the appearance of anyone she pleases. Quite useful but it can also become quite annoying. As for me I am the offense in my coven. I am the fighter, the protector. I would give my existence for my family. I have two simple ‘gifts’ that I use quite often. Aro called me a ‘thief’ you see I can duplicate another vampires’ gift, make it my own and intensify it by one hundred fold. I also have an unusually thick skull. No mental powers can touch me. Aro didn’t like that either. So when I went to talk to him about Holly, not only did he try to get Holly killed but tried to get me to join him. As if. I told him that if he allowed Holly to live I
wouldn’t kill every member in his guard. Unfortunately for them, Aro was stupid. He decided to have Jane be in the room along with the rest of the entire guard. After I absorbed every power I could taste in the city I unleashed Jane’s gift upon the entire guard along with Aro and his brothers. While they burned… I left to go back to my family. After that we were pretty much left alone. So for the last fifty years we have traveled the country seen the sights and been living life kind of the same way the Cullen’s did. Minus the animal blood that is, I tried it once, ewww never want to again, horrid stuff. Besides why would I ever want to deny myself the pleasure of human blood? We have been living in Cincinnati for the last couple years. Courtesy of a friend who lives there his name is Damon he can control the weather. So in turn so can I. Now that is. We’re moving to back to my human home of Forks today and I am not really looking forward to this, but we take turns choosing where we move to and Holly said she wanted to see where I grew up. Thanks Holly. “Are we there yet!?!?!” Holly cried from the back seat. “You know I always assumed that with immortality came gee I don’t know this little thing called PATIENCE!!!” I looked back at Holly over the passengers’ seat and she glared back at me and stuck her tongue out in response. I laughed at her and stuck out my tongue back at her in mock humor.
“And I always thought you would learn some manners Isabella” Victoria snapped at me as she smashed my tongue back into my mouth. V.P.O.V. Holly started snickering in the back. Even after one hundred years the child still scraped at my last nerve. God if it wasn’t for her gift I wouldn’t be able to stand her. Don’t get me wrong I love Holly, but there is only so much a vampire can take!! “We are almost there another two minutes or so” ‘and after that I can get out of this god forsaken car.’ I added mentally. I glanced over at Bella. She looked about as shaken up as she had been when I told her about moving. “Are you okay Bella?” I knew she wasn’t. But still I worried about her. She was my reason for being here. Like carefully placed pawns in a game of chess, without her my strategy was useless. “I’ll be fine mom.” She was lying. Pathetic. You would think that after two hundred years, she would realize that she can’t lie to me. I know things are going to change here. This feeling in the pit of my stomach was proof of that. Anger was building in us both. The feeling of loss and the hatred of betrayal. “You remember the way right?” What a dumb question to ask. Holly was bouncing up and down in the backseat now, with a wide grin on her face. “Yes Bella I remember the way.” I turned my head to smirk at her. Such a stupid girl, but she’s my stupid girl.
“Hey give me a break here! I’m a little freaked.” No!!! I thought sarcastically. With the way she was rambling on and on, it was hard to tell who she was trying to convince. It could go either way. “I mean I haven’t seen this place since Edward left me…” Bella’s rant eventually trailed off in my mind. When you live with Isabella for two hundred years you learn to tune her out. Otherwise you’re likely to go insane. B.P.O.V I don’t know who I was talking to anymore. Maybe just myself I suppose. Damn am I screwed up or what? My mind started to drift. I thought idly about my bike. Why was it always my bike that was destroyed? “I have to get another bike when we get here…” my previous motorcycle had been used to help fake my family’s death. I loved my bike, I mourned after it, that motorcycle was my baby! “I miss my Bugatti.” I sighed “it was a good bike. Very fast!!” I smiled at the memory. Driving top speed at night, the open road beneath me. Feeling the wind blow through my hair, hearing the roar of the engine as I push faster and faster, the winding road ahead as I bolt past the world. The feeling of complete freedom as I fly just me and the cool night air. There was no better feeling in the world. I was dreaming when Holly pulled me out of my reverie. “WE’RE HERE!!! WE’RE HERE!!!” she screamed. I looked around and sure enough was Charlie’s old house outside the windshield. Charlie had left everything a cousin, one he didn’t even know he had.
(aka Victoria) It doesn’t take much to forge a few signatures after a death. Victoria then changed everything into my name. So technically it belongs to Bella Swan’s great-great-great-granddaughter, but whatever, point is, it’s in my family’s name. “Great…” I mumbled as I got out of the car. The gravel crunched under my black boots as I walked over to the trunk to get my things. It still, after all these years, had the scent of vampires. Huh that’s actually kind of humorous. I wondered idly what my old room would smell like. Edward had been there almost every night to watch over his little experiment. His scent would have to still be there I wonder if I’ll ever get it out. About 150 years ago I came back and Victoria helped me remodel a little we added another entire floor. The house now had four bedrooms, and two bathrooms. I also renovated the previous bedrooms my closest was six times what it was. We didn’t stay though. The scent of vampires was even more potent then, we thought that it would fade over time, but we were apparently wrong. Holly had gotten her things and ran in to find what would be her room. I sighed as I walked in the door…so many memories were in this house. God I hate him. ‘Enough Bella!!!’ I internally yelled at myself I don’t know why I’m thinking about him. It must be the house, I concluded, yeah that’s it. It’s just the house. “I found my room!!!” Holly yelled from the second floor. I walked up the stairs at human speed. Holly was guarding the third floor stairway. “You can’t come up here it’s mine!!!” she yelled with an unnecessary force,
her eyes narrowing in response. It was like a kitten thinking she was a fierce tiger. I couldn’t help myself, a giggle escaped from my lips. I walked into my old room. Yep I was right it smelled like vampire, the scent was deluded enough that you couldn’t distinguish who the vampire was…but you still could tell had been a vampire at some point. “Found my room.” I said as Victoria walked in my doorway. She came over and sat on my bed. V.P.O.V “Are you sure you want this room?” I looked at her with concern in my eyes. I had learned to place in any emotion I chose into my eyes and facial expressions. Living with a vampire who can do who knows what, and who knows when, you learn to make it sincere enough to the point that they don’t notice anything. Isabella knows I care for her and that Edward left her all alone. She knows who the good guy is and who is not. I really do care for Bella and Holly, but my hatred toward Edward and my wanting to exact my revenge was what came first. “I’m fine mom. Really.” I believe she was trying to comfort me. “It was along time ago. A different lifetime even. I may have some trouble later but for now I really, truly am fine.” I smiled at her. She was rambling again and she didn’t even notice. “Okay then. If you’re sure.” I smiled at her. What a foolish girl. “Unpack you” I stopped and turned headed toward the door “AND HOLLY” I shouted and turned back to Bella “start school tomorrow.” A smile
played at the corners of my lips as we heard Holly groan from upstairs. B.P.O.V. “Do I have t-” We cut her off short. “Yes Holly you have to go.” I laughed. Holly always tried to get out of going to school, it was merely part of the routine now. Mom looked back to give me an encouraging smile before leaving me alone in my room. After I unpacked I pulled out my friend, a wonderful woman by the name of Emily Bronte and began to read Pride and Prejudice as I waited for the sun to rise over the mountains. (A/N: to see a picture of Bella’s bike on to http://pictures.topspeed.com/IMG/jpg/200706/howabout-a-bugatti--3w.jpg ) V.P.O.V. Life is a game of chess. You play your pawns and set up for the kill, the moment where you take down your opponent once and for all. For two hundred years I have been placing my pawns. Carefully setting them for the end result. Things are finally coming together. My pawns are set up and ready. Time for the kill. Bella starts school tomorrow. Chapter 4: Welcome to Forks
B.P.O.V. The sun was beginning to rise over the mountains I placed my paperback version of Jane Eyre down on the desk (I had finished Pride and Prejudice over night) as I got dressed. I decided to dress modestly for at least the first day. I went to my closet, which was as big as the rest of my room now, thank god for renovations! I took out a black and blood red corset top, black tights and a black denim miniskirt. After I got on my clothes I got my favorite pair of leather boots. They’re a sleek black that come to just above the calf. My hair was temporarily dyed black with a scarlet red strip through the left side, which framed my face nicely. I felt sorry for the boys in the school. Not only did they not have a chance but those I did single out I would use to sustain me. I internally sighed. I wonder what color red my eyes would be? I usually preyed on teenage boys. The ones in ‘love’. Pshh. Yeah right. Like they actually give a damn. I glanced over at the clock and saw it read five fortyfive. I had finished getting ready earlier than I expected. I still had a couple hours until school would start and I was forced to relive that first day in high school. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, to make matters even worse, I was in Forks. Forks, Washington, the placed that I began to live, the place where I learned to love and felt loved in return, and also the place where I had my heart torn out of my chest and was left to die…alone. Ever since we arrived I have had this feeling in the pit of my stomach. A mixture of love, longing, hate, and
pure terror but none of the emotions actually fit together. It makes me feel quite uneasy. I came downstairs to find Holly doing a fashion show for mom, and mom looking like she was about to jump out of her seat at any moment. I couldn’t really tell whether to make a run for it or join in. With my mom it could go either way. V.P.O.V. It was three thirty in the morning when Holly came down the stairs. I had already watched her try on three hundred outfits for today. I was using all my restraint not to rip her limbs off. The child was driving me insane. There is only so much that one can take and Holly can kill that in about thirty seconds. At six o’clock Bella finally came down and by that time I was clutching at the couch to keep myself in place and not make a run for it besides Holly would be able to find me anyway. Even with my gift, Holly is the kind of vampire that can not be avoided, if she doesn’t wish it. So it would do me no use. Kill me now!!! I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANY LONGER!!!!!!!!! Thank god for Bella. She had given me an escape. “Good Morning Bella” I looked at her and smiled. I carefully kept my voice under control. Today things would go my way and on top of that as if it wasn’t enough…Bella was going to save me from this torture. Thank GOD for pawns!!! B.P.O.V.
When I got to the bottom of the steps, I merely watched my family for a minute. Holly was modeling a pair of white Mary-Jane’s frilly socks, a baby pink dress that came to her knees it was adorable. Her hair was pulled up into a ponytail and had a little white ribbon to hold it back. I didn’t think either of them had noticed my descent. At least not until mom glanced over at me and smiled. “Good Morning Bella.” She said. What would I do without her? She and Holly were the only things I had actually done right. They were all I had they were my family…my true family. “Morning Mom. Hey Holly.” I replied. Holly looked over and a huge smile lit her perfect face. “Oh hi Bella! What do you think this…?” she said as she gave herself a twirl “I can’t decide between this one or the blue dress…” she pointed to the corner where a pile, as big as a car, was sitting on the living room floor. “Which one there has to be thousands of blue dresses in there? Where did you even get these things any way?” “First of all that is none of your business and secondly this is the one I was talking about.” Before she had even said two words she had dashed over and taken a powder blue dress from the top of the pile and was holding it up for the world to see. I snickered and shook my head at the sight of the two together…they were EXACTLY the same. Except one was pink the other blue.
“WHAT!?! Is oh so funny? And why are you making-fun of me? Hmmm?” she screeched at me. Oops never get an eternal six year old mad at one specific person. NO one can out run her terror. Even I shiver. “Nothing Holly it just that…Well Holly those are the EXACT same dresses and you were…nothing, never mind forget it?” I could almost see the venom in her body boiling beneath her translucent skin. I needed to change the subject and quick. “Umm go with the pink one…” I told her it was already seven thirty. How long had we been arguing? School starts in fifteen minutes and I still have to drop her off at school. “Hey Mom? Holly and I have to go school is starting soon and I still have…to…” I trailed off when I looked around and didn’t see her there anymore. Where could she have gone…? V.P.O.V Finally!!!! I’m out of there I was suffocating in that damn house. God those girls can argue ‘til hell freezes over. Now to get out of here… lets see now where to go…Seattle. Perfect. I should be back by nightfall. B.P.O.V. Holly and I were loaded in mom’s car as I drove her to school. Forks hasn’t changed all that much in two hundred years I don’t know whether that’s a blessing or a curse. At least if it had changed a lot. I wouldn’t remember all the times with Edward as easily, but instead it’s like time has frozen in place here.
Preserving each and every memory with precision and detail. “Bella? Hello Bells anyone home?” “Huh? What is it Holly?” Whoops, pay attention Bella. Geez. What’s wrong with you? “You just past the school…Are you all right?” I looked in the rearview mirror and sure enough was the sign that stated ‘Forks Elementary School’. Shit. I whipped around and started to drive back to the school. When we came to a stop outside the doors, I turned around to the backseat to Holly. “Okay so do you want me to go in or not? I couldn’t care either way.” She rotated back and forth so it was hard to tell. One time we would just drop her off, the next she would need us with her in order to survive going through the door. “No thanks. I’m good. ” And with that she got out of the car and dashed, at a human paced, into the building to escape. Whether trying to escape from my fleeting sanity or the rain I couldn’t tell. After I dropped Holly off, I floored it back to the house. There waiting for me was a brand new 2210 Bugatti. Bright red, and ready to go, I walked over and mounted it there was a note tied on the handle bars. ~Isabella Thought you might want your bike for school. Good luck! Remember you can always talk to me about anything. I will never abandon you. ~Victoria p.s. went hunting in Seattle be back tonight
I bolted off to school the rain made me hydroplane it was even better than riding with traction. No way was I ever driving a car again. As I pulled up to the school my eyes automatically swept the parking lot for a car I knew wasn’t going to be there. Why would I look for his Volvo? I knew it was useless and be they didn’t even make that model anymore. But I couldn’t help it. I ripped into the first spot I saw and took off the helmet I use for show. It must have been show a girl in a miniskirt and corset top riding a motorcycle. Nice. I walked in he building and every head turned to stare I remembered the procedure I walked up to the woman behind the desk. “Hello. My name is Isabella James. I’m new here.” She continued to stare at me, I fake cleared my throat. “Wha-What?” She seemed to snap out of it. “Um…I’m new here” I said with as much of a monotone as I could, while still sounding human. “Oh…um right…let…me see…” She fumbled around in a pile of papers on her desk until she found what she was looking for. “All right. Now this is your class schedule. It’s the green one,” she held up a sheet paper. “This will tell you what your classes are.” She flipped through and pulled out another “Here.” She held it up so I could see “Is a school map. Please use it. We don’t like when our students get lost. And lastly this white sheet you have your teachers sign and you bring back at the end of the day.”
I smiled and took them from her. “Thank you very much.” As I walked out the door I remembered the last time I was here, getting papers my first day in Forks. It was the first day I saw him, the day I first learned to live. I glanced at my schedule James, Isabella Junior st 1 period: AP English rm. 157 2nd period: Calculus rm. 142 3rd period: AP World History rm. 103 4th Period: Spanish 3 rm. 201 -----Lunch----th 5 period: Biology rm. 116 th 6 period: Free Block Library 7th period: Musical Appreciations rm. 176 8th period: Gym rm. 183 As I looked up from my paper, I saw that students were beginning to shuffle off to class. With a sigh, I trudged through the sea of humans to get to class. I really hate school… E.P.O.V. Forks High School. Why did we ever have to come back? There was no reason for it any longer. Bella had lived her life the way I had wanted her to. She had matured and out grown me like I always knew she would. She had gotten married and had children – grandchildren even- and finally had eventually left this world. She went to a better place, one where she would have the happiness she deserved, and where no one
could ever hurt her. She was an angel in the truest sense. And here I am, same as always frozen in time, a monster that shouldn’t exist. Nor did I even wish to exist without Bella by my side. I had tried many times to correct this mistake. Alice’s visions were becoming a nuisance to me now. Every time I left for Italy, Emmett and Jasper would show up and drag me back before I could even get out of the city. I had been under surveillance 24/7 for the first hundred years or so, after Bella left me, alone in this world. After that I realized it was an even more gruesome punishment to survive on this world alone. Now I suffer more and more everyday for that decision to leave her. What had I been thinking? She had been my entire world…and I left her!!!! Why did I have to be a monster!!!! Her expression when I left her was burned into the tissue of my mind. Pain, shock, betrayal, hurt, agony. I hated myself more than I had thought was possible since that day. ‘OUCH!!!! DAMN IT EDWARD!!! PLEASE STOP!!!! YOU’RE KILLING ME HERE!!!!!!’ Jasper thought. “Sorry.” I said simply. My existence has ceased to mean anything to me without Bella, though that still didn’t excuse my behavior. We got out off the car and walked toward the school, when Emmett let out a long whistle. I turned around to see him staring at a brilliant crimson colored, 2210 Bugatti motorcycle. I shuddered to think what kind of human would ride those. I just kept imagining my Bella on one of those monsters. Were they trying to
send themselves to an early grave? Of course I had to admit, it was a nice bike. “Don’t even think about it.” Alice threatened. I looked toward her, as she glared at Emmett. Emmett looked at her and slowly walked away from the motorcycle, backing up to hide behind Rosalie. “Pathetic.” Rosalie muttered. “Come on. We still have to get schedules before school starts.” This was getting old. The humans had already left to go to their classes and here we were in the parking lot keeping Emmett from going for a joyride on some reckless human’s bike, while also trying to keep Alice from becoming violent and murdering Emmett. And that is actually quite difficult to do at the same time. Two minutes later we were walking into the student resource office, and heard a woman behind the desk gasp at the sight of us. ‘Oh my god!!! There just as beautiful as that girl. Oh my…no too young. What a shame.’ Okay now that, was weird, even for a human. As we walked out I caught sight of the mystery girl from the woman’s thoughts. “Alright already!! Are you going to give us our schedules or not? Edward stop stalking the girl!!! You tried that once and we saw how well THAT worked out.” Alice roared at me. ‘I hate you Edward. You made me leave her when she needed me the most!!! I loved her too but you didn’t care. Did you? NO you only thought of your selfish desires!!!! It’s your fault that Bella isn’t here with us anymore!!! It’s your fault she died. You could
have stopped it. I saw it and you took that from me!!! She was my sister and you killed her!!!’ Alice had been like this since she found Bella’s obituary online. How could Alice have turned so cruel? Did she really think that I wouldn’t do anything to have Bella in my arms again? My eyes felt like they had needles pricking into them. I wanted to cry, though I knew I couldn’t. “Fine enough already!! Here!!!” I let out an exasperated sigh. Why does it still hurt this badly? Alice snatched her and Jasper’s schedules and took off toward class while Jasper, still a little confused as to what just happened, followed suite. “That’s just pitiful.” Rosalie muttered under her breath, as she walked off. Emmett followed her out to class. He held her close, the same way I had held Bella when she was mine. Even now I still see her, every time I close my eyes, she’s there. Her deep, milk chocolate colored eyes, her beautiful mahogany colored hair, her soft blush, the sparkle in her eyes at the flash of intuition, she was so beautiful. Her silent mind was by itself captivating and her beauty was unparalleled, but the two together… she was perfection, and I left her. How? I can’t even remember the two years after I left. I was in a daze, Alice had helped me the best she knew how. But nothing could touch me. As I walked into class I was vaguely aware of the thoughts that came from the students around me. I just have to get through the next few hours and then I can go home and let the misery take me. I can go to a place where I can be with Bella again, even if it’s only for a little while, I can see her smile and we can love one
another, it will be like nothing had ever happened, like I had never left her and we could have been together. Forever, just as it should have been. Chapter 5: Check Mate!!! E.P.O.V. The bell rang for lunch, and the students filed out and into the halls. As I walked through the doors, I saw my family sitting at an empty table and went to join them. Jasper was staring intently at Alice, who was glaring at the wall. I felt sorry for the wall. Rosalie was sitting on Emmett’s lap and whispering into his ear. I tended to tune those two out. All of a sudden Alice jumped up and flat out ran to the door I had just came through, before I could even find out why, she was gone. Alice hates me, but I can’t blame her. B.P.O.V. God I hate school. Even taking advanced classes, this place was a boring repeat of a time long ago. The lunch bell had finally rang, releasing me from that horrid Spanish class. Don’t get me wrong the first three times I took Spanish I really enjoyed myself, but after twenty-six times it gets kind of old. I walked into the hall I heard a scream that sent me into shock at the sound.
“BELLA!!!” she cried as she slammed into me “I thought…and you…but I couldn’t” she dry sobbed into my shirt. I tried to pull her out of my clothes but she just hung there for dear life. There was something familiar about her…I just couldn’t place it… “Alice!!!” I shrieked. “No. It can’t be.” I murmured to myself. She looked at me with pain, sorrow filling her eyes, seeming to brim over the top, and spill over. “Oh Bella, I so sorry. Sorry we left and didn’t say goodbye. Sorry I ever listened to my idiot of a brother. Sorry I didn’t stay or at least come back. Sorry for-” I tuned her out. What in the name of muffins was going on here!!! Alice isn’t supposed to be here. I checked!! Before we left for Forks, I called the school and made sure that no Hales or Cullen’s were registered in the system. They weren’t then so why are they here now!!! “I’m the worst sister in the world. I missed you more than I can even explain!!! Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, none of us do, but please…” “Alice? How did you find me?” she looked up from my now wrinkled shirt, and looked me in the eyes. “Wait. What do you mean??” this can not be happening to me. “I mean, how did you know it was me?” I was still in shock. Who wouldn’t be? I mean, I haven’t seen her in two hundred years and all of a sudden she slams into me? Literally!! “I saw you Bella. I knew it was you in my vision, so I ran to find you. And you’re here. You’re really
here…” she broke out into dry sobs again as she clung to my top. Humans were starting to notice at this point, not a very good thing. Doors had children going in and out constantly. What to do… “Quick, this way.” I whispered as I pulled her into the girls’ bathroom. After I checked to make sure all humans were out of the room, I turned to face her, Alice, my use-to be sister. And then I really wish I hadn’t, Alice was sitting there on the cold floor, dry sobbing. Her hands were in front of her face holding her eyes. She could make a statue cry. I went over to her and pulled her into my arms. She latched on again and I tried to comfort her, murmuring ‘shh it alright Alice, you’re okay’, I didn’t know why I was doing this. Not after what they did to me. After about and hour, she calmed down. “I’m so sorry Bella. I didn’t know he’d actually do it. Even once we left if I saw a vision with him you were there too. I thought he would go back…I’m so sorry.” “Alice what happened?” I couldn’t stand it any longer. Alice was the perky, bubbly, fun-loving one. This Alice however, was crying her eyes out and seemed miserable. Did we switch places? “Are you alright Alice?” I really needed to get to class, and I hate these people!!! Why should I even care? What were they to me…other than heartbreak and misery? “Hey listen it was nice seeing you again…but I have to go. Bye” and with that I took my leave.
As soon as I crossed those doors, a floored it out of the school, running as fast as my legs would allow. I can’t do this. No way this was chance. No way!!! I blocked Alice. She wasn’t supposed to be able to see me. What the hell!!! I don’t care where I go anymore. But I’m not staying here. Mom will understand, and Holly… well Holly won’t understand, but she would be able to find me. I gave in to my senses no more thinking allowed. The last thing I remember was a sign that said ‘Siberia: 10 miles’ Alice P.O.V. Bella she’s actually here. My sister… We sat there, on the bathroom floor for hours. I dry sobbed the whole time. “Alice are you okay.” I looked up. That wasn’t Bella’s voice. “Rose?” I looked around where was Bella. She was here. Where’d she go!!!! Not again!!! No I have to find her!!! “Rosalie where’s the girl that was with me?” I was doing the best to keep my voice calm but, it wasn’t working as well as I had hoped. “What girl? Alice there was no one but you in here. The humans are too scared to come in. They can hear you crying in the halls. Jasper’s worried sick. You know he’s been waiting for you come out for an hour now.” I closed my eyes and looked into Bella’s future. It was either being blocked or she was dead, but I know
she’s not dead. I SAW HER!!! So she can’t be dead. No not dead, just blocked. I got up and sighed. She’s here somewhere. I just have to find her. “Rose. Can I tell you something?” Someone had to know I wasn’t crazy for acting how I was. “Of course.” She took my arm and started to lead me out into the halls. I stopped. She looked at me with suspicion in her expression. “Rosalie. I saw Bella. She’s alive.” My voice was quivering. I had to stay quiet. Who knows who could be outside the doors? “Alice… Bella died a long time ago.” She put her hand on my shoulder and pulled me into a hug. “I know you miss her…we all do. I wish I hadn’t been such a bitch to her. Edward wishes he never left. Emmett wishes he beat the ever loving shit out of Edward for even suggesting that we leave her.” She let out a small laugh at the last. No she’s wrong I know I saw her. “It’s okay to miss her.” I pushed her away. “No I mean for real.” I said stubbornly. “Bella is alive. I saw her here. During lunch I saw Bella and I in the halls. That’s why I took off like I did. I had to see, and it was true I ran right into her. She was surprised to see me and she pulled us both into the bathroom.” “Alright. So do you want me to tell Edward or do you want to?”
“I’m not going to tell him.” She stated. Poor Alice. She’s lost it. It’s all Edward’s fault. His fault our family was torn apart, when we left Bella. His fault Bella died. His fault everyone has all of this guilt. Poor Alice has snapped under it. “Why not?” Alice had changed after Bella died. She always hoped that Edward would realize his mistake and that we would go back to her, and when Bella died, it broke Alice. I still remember the months after she found the obituary. If our family had any contact with each other before, it died when Alice found saw that. “He doesn’t deserve to know.” She still hated Edward. I sighed. “Alice you can’t blame him forever. You know as well as I that if there had been any chance he could go back and undo what happened.” I pleaded with her. This had to stop. The blame, the hate, all of it had to stop. She looked at me with infinite sorrow in her eyes. “But Rose, you just don’t understand. It was his fault we left her. His fault she isn’t with us right now!!” Poor Alice I wish there was something I could do. --------3 Days Later-------B.P.O.V What was I doing?!? Why was I running away from them? They were the one’s who made my
existence a living hell. They should leave. Not me!! But how to do it…? Hmm, I had to make Edward leave the others will follow suit, like the little puppies they are. I’ll make him suffer. He’ll know the pain I went through. This time I get to be the heartbreaker, and he gets heart broken. ------12 hours later------As I passed Seattle, I thought of him. I want to know why he toyed with me like he did. Why me? Why did he make me care, why did he pick me of all people to hurt? What made him hate me so much? What did I do to have asked for this pain? I never said anything bad about him. I loved him and he tricked me. He told be he loved me that we would always be together, and I trusted him. I believed his lies, and I paid the price for it. I suffered immensely. My own parents even tried to send me to a hospital for psychiatric help. Edward killed my poor mothers heart, but that wasn’t enough. No. That was too simple. After all, why ruin only one person’s life when you can make two suffer? I’ll make him pay. That is a promise. Edward Cullen will suffer for the both of us. I ran up to the house and came to a stop. It looked the same as when I left. I had this feeling of relief. I don’t know why but, I kind of, had the sense that it would change in my absence. The windows were all blackened except one. It gave the house had a worn look. The faint light was coming
from my room. It cast a slight glow upon the lawn below. The house looked so still. It’s so quiet here. ‘My family must be hunting. No way could they ever be this quiet.’ I thought to myself. The sun was beginning to rise the golden light in the clouds was proof of that. As I approached the door saw something hanging on a nail. It was a note from Holly. Dear Bella, It’s all your fault. If you hadn’t left it wouldn’t have happened. ^_^ Consider it as punishment. Haha!!! Besides you’ve had them too long any way!!! Love and bubbles, Holly p.s. pretty PLEASE with sugar on top…don’t eat me!!!! Please Weird. Even for Holly. I wonder what was with the note. I hate it when she gets all cryptic like that. Oh well. I’ll ask her later. I went inside and went to the bathroom. I looked in the mirror, and wow. I looked like I had been in the woods for a couple days. I got into the warm shower. Hopefully, I can get all the dirt and leaves out. After I got out of the shower it was seven fifteen. Plenty of time. I went over to my closet, opened the door, and immediately wished I hadn’t. Holly had gotten to my clothes!!! What the Hell!!!! That girl was dead! For good this time!!! Mom can always make another, if she needs it…
MY CLOTHES ARE SHREADED!!!!! That girl is dog food… I wonder if Jacob ever learned how to control himself. I fervently wish not… I ran back to the door and ripped the note off. “Don’t eat me. Yeah right. Like I would listen to her now!!!” I looked out into the night, and screamed as loud as I could!!! “HOLLY YOU ARE DEAD DO YOU HEAR ME WHEN I GET MY HANDS ON YOU…YOU ARE MINE!!!!!!!!!” My words were filled with venom, at this point. I was seething!! Oh, was she gonna get it. I ran back up to my room. I had to salvage something to wear today. I pulled everything out of the closet and threw it all on my bed. I found a pair of my favorite jeans, now slashed and faded looking. Hmm. “Not Bad…” Okay so I have pants. “Now I just need a top.” After fifteen minutes, I realized it was hopeless. I wasn’t going to find anything in my closet. But Holly’s on the other hand… I ran up the stairs to Holly’s room, and opened her wardrobe door. All her little clothes were hanging up, all nice and neat, not a wrinkle in sight. I looked around until I found what I was looking for. There, hanging in the very back, was holly’s favorite top. It was a beautiful shade of a deep purple, and just my size. Holly wore it when she made herself older or a ‘big girl’ as we called her. The shirt was almost as old as me. Damon had bought in 1999 and Holly had gotten it from
Damon. Only one way to make things even… I grabbed a pair of scissors and ripped the shears through the fabric, a slice here, maybe one over there. Soon I had it looking past the point of no return. Gashes, starting through the chest and continuing down the sides, the shirt fit perfect on me now. ‘Such a wonderful design, I should do this for a living…’ I thought sarcastically to myself. “Alright Holly it’s payback time.” No one screws with my clothes. Holly should know that by now. I got on my bike and raced to school. As I pulled up to the school I saw Alice Cullen stalking the parking lot looking like a nervous wreck. Her eyes zeroed in on me, and she started walking toward were I was parked. “God you don’t give up do you?” I said out loud, thank god she was out of hearing range. “Bella!!” She must have hit her head at some point… “Alice.” Why was she doing this to me? Why can’t they just go away…? A.P.O.V. I knew she would come back…even blind to her, she’ll always be my sister…I know her better than anyone. Except for a few things… “Bella? Can we talk?” it bothered me…as happy as I was…and believe me I was happier. Poor Jasper has been bouncing with excitement for the past 36 hours. Even Edward noticed my perky mood, Rose says she’s
happy to see a little of my old-self again, and I swear think I even saw Emmett smirk a little. “What do you want Alice, I have class.” Something must be wrong. Bella was always so warm and caring. Yet right now she seems so cold and distant. I hope she’s okay. “Are you alright Bella?” She was never like this before what could have happened? “Did you honestly just ask me that!?” She asked in a…rather angry tone. B.P.O.V. She did not just ask me if I was okay?!?! “A little too late for that question, aren’t we Alice!!” I looked at her and showed her all the hatred I had for her and her family. She took an unconscious step back and looked at me with fear. All of a sudden, before I had time to get away, someone was standing behind me. I turned around slowly and calmly. This was not going to be pleasant.
