The Welcome Wagon
Edward came bursting through the front door and met the eyes of his family. He was carrying someone over his shoulder and threw it down onto the cold floor. He seemed furious and completely out of control as he kicked the person in the stomach and they skidded halfway across the well lit living room.
"Edward what is the meaning of this," Carlisle spoke up in outrage. He was confused by the wild look in his son's eyes and the person his son was so eager to injure.
"I found her in the forest when I was hunting," Edward said with no sympathy as he looked down at the discarded body.
"Her?" Esme squealed and ran over to the un-named girl lying on the floor.
"She's fine," Edward said blowing off Esme's concern, "I hit her really hard and she passed out."
"You hit her?" Esme said and got up from the floor. She ran over to Edward in a flash and smacked him hard across the face.
"She's a vampire Esme, she's fine," he said again with no remorse.
"Vampire's don't pass out Edward," Carlisle said and placed the girls head on his lap. She was beautiful; at first glance Carlisle could see that she was in fact a vampire. Her skin was pale and ice cold, her face was flawless with no markings and absolutely no sign of stress. He removed her long auburn hair from her face and tried to rouse her. "What happened," he said shaking her to try and wake her up.
"I caught her feeding on a local, told her to stop, that we had a residence here and it would be bad publicity, but she kept feeding." Edward folded his arms over his chest and stood there looking down at Carlisle.
"Is the local dead," Carlisle asked.
"As a door nail, when she was done she just kept looking at him, like she was sad or something. Then her hands started to glow."
"So you knocked her out?" Esme was flabbergasted.
"Yea, and when I saw that she wasn't waking up I brought her here, what else do you want from me?"
"A little common courtesy would be nice Edward," Alice was getting off the couch and kneeled down by the girl.
"Up up up up up, there we go," Carlisle said as the girl started to open her eyes and look around.
"Holy fucking shit," she cried out and started to run out of the house. Esme caught her before she get off of the porch and brought her back in. "I'm sorry, for whatever I did, I'm sorry." Her body seemed to shake as she looked around at everyone looking at her.
"It's ok honey, no one is going to hurt you," Esme's placed a calming hand on the girls shoulder, but the shaking continued, "Jasper," Esme motioned to the girl and Jasper finally got up off of the couch and stared at the frightened girl.
The shaking stopped and Carlisle stood up from the floor and walked over to her, "What's your name sweet heart," He said kindly.
"Teagan…" she said in a calm but apprehensive voice, "Teagan Brent"
"Ok good, my name is Carlisle and this is my family."
"I'm really sorry, I didn't want to I promise, I had to."
"Are you alone?" Carlisle prodded.
"Alone?" She repeated confused.
"Yes, are you traveling with someone?"
"Yes, I'm alone. Believe me you don't want to be around me, you should just let me go."
"Why" Alice spoke up curiously.
"I'm cursed," Teagan said.
"Cursed?" Esme repeated.
"Yeah, I have to kill, I need blood to survive."
There was a long pause as Carlisle considered the impossible, "Honey do you know what you are?"
"Yeah, some guy told me I was a demon or something," she said confused, why were they acting so calm, she could kill everyone in this room? At the very least they must have thought she was crazy.
"You're a goddamn vampire Teagan, Jesus!" Edward said and stomped up the stairs to his room.
"I'm a what?" She said looking at everyone else's face, they all looked so sad.
"You're a vampire, you're one of us." Alice said and danced over to her. "Only we don't eat people."
Silence filled the room and Teagan started to look around at their faces, they all looked like her, pale white and flawless. She opened her mouth to speak but nothing came out.
"It's true, my family and I are vampires as well. Who made you Teagan?" Carlisle spoke finally.
"I don't know, I never caught his name."
"Where do you come from?" Esme asked.
"A small town in Ohio, but I had to leave. The sun does something weird to my skin, people started to notice. I promise though, I'll get out of here, you'll never see me again."
"Nobody's asking you to leave dear," Carlisle said, "Do you have a destination?"
"Not really I just kind of wander around, I haven't found anywhere safe yet." Esme was ushering her to the couch where Emmett and Rosalie made room.
"Would you like to stay here?" Esme asked and it caught Teagan off guard.
"Here? With you?"
"No with the fucking pope, what do you think?" Edward had come back downstairs and was standing in the middle of the living room looking down on her.
"I don't… I can't," She stammered, "why do you want me here?"
"They think that you're broken and they can fix you, they do this with everyone. You wanna become our new pet?" Edward roared with absolute sacrcasm.
"Edward shut up!" Alice yelled and punched him hard on his arm. "Would you like to stay here, we have plenty of room, and it's perfectly safe."
Teagan looked over at Edward and his expression didn't match what Alice had just said. Catching on, Esme spoke up before Teagan could tell them no, "Don't worry about Edward, he's been a little crabby lately."
"Yeah, you really need to get laid Eddie," Emmett chimed in and was quickly reprimanded by Esme and Rosalie at the same time.
"I would really like to learn more about you, maybe even help you learn a little bit more about yourself." Carlisle said and made a very quick glace of to Jasper that Teagan didn't catch.
"Sure, just one night. What could it hurt?" she said as she felt a huge wave of acceptance rush through her body.
Rosalie and Emmett made their way to their bedroom which only contained a bed for one reason, considering they don't sleep. Edward wandered outside grumpy and annoyed, and Alice, Jasper, Carlisle, and Esme surrounded their new guest with eager eyes waiting for her to tell her story. All of them were focused on different things, Jasper eyes concentrated on her nervous hands twisting in and out of each other, Carlisle seemed to be more interested in what was about to come out her mouth and was seething with anticipation. Esme and Alice on the other hand were focused on her strange appearance. She was wearing a long flowy skirt that went all the way down to her ankles and it's orange color seemed to jump out at you from miles away. Her shirt seemed to barely be hanging on, the loose thin white fabric held steady on her simply by her chest and whatever tension the sleeves had left as they rested on her biceps. She was covered in what looked like second hand jewelry and every finger had at least two rings on it.
Not really knowing what they wanted to hear, Teagan sat there in silence and looked back at them, "so what do you want to know?" She finally said, feeling the awkward silence.
"How old are you?" Alice said excitedly.
"Um, I think I'm 18. I lost track of time and dates."
"do you have any idea how long you have been 18," Esme said and her heart filled with sorrow when Teagan simply shook her head. "How did you get here," she prodded some more.
"Like I said, I just kind of wander around. I saw that hiker and I just couldn't help myself, I hadn't eaten in days." She looked down ashamed of herself.
"you know, you don't have to feed off of humans," Carlisle said putting a finger under her chin and pulling her face back up to eye level.
"Yes I do, I get this horrible ache in my stomach, I tried so hard to ignore it, but I turn crazy after awhile." Tears started to form in her eyes.
"No dear, you need to feed, but it doesn't have to be on humans. You can feed off of animals to satisfy your hunger." Esme placed a comforting hand on her shoulder.
"what!?" Teagan said dumbfounded and a little angry, "I don't have to kill anyone?"
"Nope," Alice popped back into the conversation.
Carlisle and the rest of the family talked for hours about their way of life, and with every sentence Teagan got more and more excited by the new options that were available to her. The vibe changed however when Edward re-entered the room and sat down on the love seat opposite Teagan.
"So you're going to stay," He said not to enthused on the idea.
"If that's ok," Teagan said softly looking at Esme and Carlisle.
"Of course it's ok," Esme said with a smile, then looked over at Edward and the smile faded, "What is your problem?"
"Me? I don't have a problem." He said and got up once more and started to make his way to the stairs, "Welcome to the family Teagan."
"Don't worry, you guys will get along just fine," Alice spoke up beaming about something she knew that no one else seemed to.
More to come, I know not a lot is explained in this one, but just bare with me I think you'll like it.
