I do not own Twilight, nor New Moon, nor any of it's characters. And sorry this is not a New Moon spoiler...i wish! This is my take on New Moon: hope you like it, it's my first fanfic.
It was Thursday; I had gone over to Edwards's house to study. For a while he didn't want me to come, saying that there was "visitors" even though I knew that they only allowed vegetarians to stay with them…
"Edward, I need to pass this exam!" I was sitting on his lap in the living room with most of his family and their visitors; Magurate, Lexington, and William. I had been introduced to them earlier; they seemed very nice and friendly. They were chatting with Carlisle; I think it was about how the weather is going to be sunny tomorrow. Jasper was reading a book that I had brought over about the Confederates in the Civil War with Alice also sitting right on his lap. Esme, Emmett and Rosalie were hunting. Edward kept tickling me making me lose my focus on my paper.
"Stop it, let's focus on studying!" I tried to say in between laughs with the most serious face that I could muster. I waved the study guide questions around in my hand.
"Bella, dear, only you need to focus on studying, I know this already." He replied.
"But I haven't been around 100 years to take my classes again…and again." He gave me a dirty look. "Come on, please help me study" I waved the study guide in his face again while giving him the best puppy-dog face that I could. I noticed that Alice was leaning against Jasper with her eyes closed probably just relaxing.
"Okay, let's see what this gives us to study on." He reached for the paper in my hand.
"Edward!" Alice screamed. Her eyes were wide and filled with horror. He grabbed the paper a little too fast from my hand, being startled by Alice's scream. The paper slit my finger.
"Shoot," I muttered when the paper sliced my finger; I pulled it out to examine the damage. A single drop of blood oozed from the tiny cut.
It all happened very quickly then.
Edward threw himself at me, flinging me back across the table…
I tumbled down to the floor by the piano, with my arms thrown out instinctively to catch my fall, into the jagged shards of glass. I felt the searing, stinging pain that ran from my wrist to the crease inside my elbow.
Dazed and disoriented, I looked up from the bright red blood pulsing out of my arm–into the fevered eyes of the six suddenly ravenous vampires.
The pain from my arm did not stop me from noticing how most of the vampires in the room were on their feet, advancing towards me. Edward was leading them. I stared into his coal black eyes that held no warmth or love for me. A tear slid down my cheek, then another, and another.
"Ed-Edward. Edward stop, I love you, stop. Edward you're scaring me," I sobbed. I walked backwards hearing the crunch of the glass beneath my shoes. "Edward, please, Edward." I whispered.
He was the predator and I was the prey. He was still in front of all the other vampires. They walked slowly; they were stalking me, taking their time with each movement unrushed. I looked at each of their faces; Magurate, Lexington, William, Jasper, Alice, and…Edward.
Jasper started to advanced past Edward.
"Stop! She's mine!" Edward growled. It was the most horrifying sound I had ever heard. I shrank back in panic and felt my back against the wall. Jasper growled back but did not move any further. The others shrank back, they too were also afraid of him. Or maybe just intimidated.
Feeling that the end was near I looked one last time into the eyes of what used to be my angel. This was not my Edward, I thought to myself. My tears came rushing out more now. My sobs were uncontrollable.
Edward was only two steps away from me.
"EDWARD! Please, please." I pleaded even though I knew that it was useless. "Edward," I uttered sinking to my knees. He was now only one step.
I felt myself being thrust up by two strong hands on my shoulders and in a second my face was level with his. There was a menacing look in his once beautiful topaz eyes. One last tear fell from my eyes.
"I love you, Edward, forever." I whispered as I felt his fangs against my skin. Right then I heard the front door fly open but it was too late; Edward sank his fangs into my skin.
