The life of Bella Swan
In a question & answer/ diary format, each chapter focuses on the rather important lessons that come when ‘dealing with the dark side’. Note: I am a British writer, so some terms and spellings etc, may be different or incorrect... Please persevere with me. I am trying. Honest ^^ ~Lesson 2~ How to spot a vampire... They are the masters of disguise yet even when hidden, they still seem to attract. It is the skill of a born predator. 1) The cold touch “I’ll see you later Bella” Alice dismissed as she hugged Bella. “What? Wait!” “I’ll see you tonight.” “Tonight?” she asked, her confusion filling her voice. “Alice” the unexpected voice startled Bella. “Edward I-” Alice managed before being interjected. “You were leaving?” “See you later Bella” Alice chimed before leaving. Turning to face Edward, she felt herself gasp at his beauty. His eyes appeared to glisten, several emotions running through his amber pupils. His skin almost ghostlike was paler than any of his family’s. By now the hallway had almost cleared out entirely. “Bella” he whispered before standing in front of her. Moving in closer, she made a weak attempt at pushing him back. “Edward” she warned as her gaze locked with two passing girls. Neither of the girls looks were pleasant, rather daggers. If looks could kill, I’d be a dead girl, she mocked silently. Moving back unwillingly, Edward smiled at the passing students. Instantly the girls’ hard expressions faded, being replaced by awestruck appreciation. Bella knew what he had just done, melting their hearts and dazzling them with the unmatchable smile of his, all of this done unknowingly, or so he liked to say. As soon as the girls had gone, he resumed his previous task. Nearing her like a predator, he soon had her cornered. Stroking her cheek gently,
he made her shiver under the cool press of his fingers. They felt like electric, tingling softly against her smooth skin. Smiling, she bid him goodbye before racing off to class. 2) Lightning speed Clambering out of her truck, Bella concentrated on the contents in her bag. Where is it, she questioned internally. Rummaging, she could hear the distant screech of slick tyres. Glancing up her gaze connected with that of the vampire across. Sheer anxiety masked his face as she realised why he was so concerned. Rushing towards her uncontrollably was a vehicle. Dangerously sliding towards her, the driver had lost entire control. Shaking, she could not move. Willing her feet to step one after another, Bella found her mind elsewhere. As the car drew even closer, she closed her eyes quickly before opening them again and braced herself. People said that death, if you were lucky, would be a short and simple ordeal. With thoughts and memories racing through her mind, she only questioned a few moments later, why she had yet to be hit. She had seen him move, yet even then her conscious denied it. Edward who had been standing so far away a few seconds ago, was now clutching her tightly, his other hand pressed loosely against the assaulting vehicle. Looking up at him, she followed the length of his arm, almost gasping when she saw the damage that had been inflicted on the vehicle. It was no minor result. The entire side panelling had caved in, incidentally where Edward’s hand was pressed. Noticing her gaze, he quickly pulled himself and Bella up, fussing clearly over her in the hope that she would forget what she had just witnessed. “Are you alright?” “How did you get here so quickly?” she countered. A brief flash of anger and fear flashed through his eyes. “What are you talking about? Bella I was next to you the entire time” he insisted. “No you weren’t. You were over there, on the other side of the car park. I saw you.” “You must have hit your head. We should get you to the hospital.” “I saw you. One second you were over there and the next... you were with me. You stopped the car!” “Bella, you’ve obviously hit your head hard. You can’t even remember me being next to you.” “Edward” she said sternly. “Please Bella.”
Conflicted about what to do, she replied, “If I let you take me to the hospital without mentioning this, will you answer me?” “Later.”
3) Immense strength As the other Cullens took to their positions, Esme dragged Bella over to a side. “You can help me referee okay?” “Are you sure?” “Definitely. You’d be surprised how competitive everyone gets, especially the boys. With your help I can make sure there is no cheating” Esme assured softly. During the middle of a thunder storm, each member of the Cullen family was fully kitted in what Bella liked to call ‘baseball gear’. Something new to her knowledge was while most humans took to shelter; Vampires revelled in American sports during extreme weather. As the rain continued to pour heavily, Alice began to pitch as the batter warmed up. Taking dramatic swings in the air, Emmet practiced his batting. Scanning the field, Bella noticed that both Jasper and Edward were deep fielding, both wearing equally matched expressions of concentration and joy. She cringed at the anticipation that encircled her; sports were definitely not her preference. “It’s time” Alice announced with glee. “Good” Emmet grinned as he stepped up to the plate. Watching the game from a safe distance, Bella was mesmerised by their actions. Powerfully slamming the bat against the ball, each Cullen successfully managed to create a roaring noise as the wood of the bat connected with the ball material. Entirely entranced, Bella was drawn in further as she noted how fast each batter raced to the fourth base, almost like the lightening itself that raged in the dark sky. Equally impressive was how Jasper and mainly Edward lunged and darted for the stray ball, and on many occasions they reached the destination before the ball did. Soon it was Rosalie’s turn. Gripping the bat fiercely she took a stance. Perfectly balanced, she forcefully swung the bat, aiming directly at the ball. Again a loud collision overwhelmed the sound of the thunder as Rosalie accelerated past each base. Shouting words of encouragement, Esme, focused on retrieval of the ball. “She’s gonna’ make it.” “Don’t be so sure Bella.”
“But she hit it so far and hard.” “Yes but Edward is the fastest amongst us. Watch” Esme instructed. Doing as she was instructed, Bella observed intently, unsure what exactly she was meant to be ‘watching’ for. “I-” she managed before Edward appeared in front of Rosalie, blocking her from the base. “Out!” ruled Esme. “No! I got there first!” argued Rosalie. “What do you think Bella?” “I... She’s out.” “No fair!” Rosalie moaned as she sulkily passed Bella.
4) Strange behaviour towards/ around humans.
5) Attraction to blood. 6) Colour changing eyes. 7) Sometimes speak as if they are from a different time.
There are several signs that indicant vampirism. Those above are just the main ones. Warning do not be mislead, vampires are not afraid of holy objects or garlic. The only bogeymen they have are the volturi and trust me that’s scary enough.
~Lesson 3~ The Volturi... To seek or greet the Volturi is imminent death for they are the power behind a bloodthirsty race. Talented and as old as time itself, they will posses you...
