Hey guys. Thanks for the awesome reviews. I`m sorry if there are any spelling mistakes but my computer broke and I couldn`t check them. Love you.
"What are you?"
"I think we established that the last time we saw each other." Currently me and the Cullen family were sitting in their family room. All seven of them were sitting on the big couch and I was standing in front of them. "I am a vampire."
"No you are not" said Edward "It`s not possible. You aren`t as pale as we are, you have a heartbeat,you are warm and soft. It`s just not possible." By this point it was taking all of my will power not to laugh. Seriously? They were like children, not exepting the simple fact that they are not the only supernatural creatures out there in the world.
"Okay can we make a deal? Please let me explain everything and then I will answear all of your questions. Is that exaptable?" I asked in a gentle voice. If they were going to act like children, I was going to treat them like that. They nodded their heads and I took a long calming breath.
"My story is very long. I am a vampire and I`ve been one for 1000 years." Seven pairs of shocked golden eyes looked at me but I continued.
"It all started in a small village that later became Mystic Falls. Me and my family lived there in peace with its inhabitants who were werewolfs. Not like those in La Push, these werewolfs are stronger,faster and more dangerous. Their transformation is not trigered by their anger,no they can only turn on a full moon. The problems started when my mother slept with one of the werewolfs and then conceived me and my twin brother Klaus. Our mother`s husband who we always call our father didn`t find out untill later but the thing was that me and my brother found out. You see me and my brother are very alike. We are short tempered. My brother was furious and he made a enormous mistake in his anger. He decided to go out and find our real father on a full moon night. To make it even worse he took our little brother with him." I stopped for a moment to brush my tears. Belive me or not this was the first time in 1000 years that I recalled this painful memory. But I had to stop I promised the Cullens to tell them my story and I wanted to do it without turning into a weeping baby.
"They killed my baby brother. After that everything started to crash. Our father decided that we need protection from the supernatural and this protection was obliviously by turning us to a supernatural creatures as well. He made Mother,who was a powerful witch and yes witches exist,to make us vampires and so she did. My Mother wasn`t stupid, she immediately thought about the fact that me and Klaus had werewolf genes in us so she decided that the best way of dealing with this is to put a spell on me and Klaus. A repressing spell which prevents us from enabling our werewolf side. After that our father found about Mother and the werewolf. He was so mad that he went and killed his entire family and then killed our Mother." I paused again. It was just too painful. For my surprise there was sympathy in all of the Cullens eyes.
"We couldn`t stay there any longer of course. So me,Klaus and our other brothers and sister ran away. We stayed together for a little bit longer and then we splited up. I stayed with Klaus so did our brother Elijah and our sister Rebekah. Meanwhile our father had gone completely mad. He decided that we all were monsters and started chasing us. Of course we had burnt the only tree from which stakes we could die but Father had kept its ashes which are of course extremely dangerous for us."
"And so centuries past. Me and Klaus became obsessed with the idea of breaking the spell\ curse that our mom had put on us to repress our werewolf side. You see we noticed that we are stronger and faster than our siblings and we only imagined how strong we were going to be once the curse was broken. After many years of research we finally found how to do it. Usually what`s used to make the curse is the key to break it. In our case that was a young girl from our village named Tatia. To break the curse we needed her doppelganger,a witch,a vampire and a werewolf."
"It was in the late 1400`s that we found our doppelganger. We were all in England. Me, Klaus. Elijah, Finn, Kol and our sister Rebekah. We were all introduced to Katerina on a ball. I still remember the look on both mine and Klaus` face. We were of course very happy that the curse will be finally broken. I was even happier when I met a young man named Alexander. It was love at first sight I ..." I was cut off by Edward`s low growl. I looked at him and he obviously saw the threat in my eyes because he stopped.
"As I was saying I was incredibly happy and in love and this didn`t work for Klaus. He wanted me for himself. He tried to convince me that I should break up with him but of course I didn`t listen. See my brother wants to control everything and everyone. He could control my siblings by threatening them with a dagger covered in the ash of the Great tree. It won`t kill them but first it`ll hurt and second it`ll put them into sleep. The thing is that the dagger won`t work both on me and on Klaus so he can`t control me. That drove him insane and so he did the only thing he thought can control me." I started sobbing quietly because I knew what was coming.
"The day before the night we were going to perform the ritual to break the curse, Klaus brought me a big box with a bow on top of it. I thought it was a make up present and I wa eager to open but when I did..."I brushed my tears.
" I found Alexander`s head in the box." I said with a broken voice and raised my head to see the pure horror on the Cullens faces.
"I`m so sorry, honey." Said Esme then stood up and hugged me tightly. She pulled away and I thanked her quietly.
"Of course I was furious. I went into killing mode. The only thing I could think about was revenge. I went to Katerina`s room and we made a deal. She was really nice girl and I really liked her. She told me her story. She was born in Bulgaria (AN: I am actually from Bulgaria as well :D) but was banished to England because she had a baby before she was married. I did the math. If the doppelganger had a baby that meant that after a few centuries there would be a new right there I knew what would be my revenge. See Klaus took away from me Alexander. He took away the person who I needed,wanted and loved so I did the same thing to him. My brother`ve always needed,wanted and loved the idea for the doppelganger so..." The Cullens looked at me like I was mad.
"You killed her? Why did you do this? You said you liked her." Said a very outrageous Alice.
"I didn`t kill her Ally" I said with a smile.
"I did what she asked me to do. I changed her." They looked at me shocked.
"You did this to her. Didn`t you think about her soul?"Asked Edward. He was seriously starting to annoy me. A lot.
"Her soul? First she wanted it and second it was either her `soul` or her life. I think we made the right choice but let me finish. My brother of course went mad. He decided to hunt her down but I couldn`t let him to this to her so I warned her. We became friends. I saved her life and she helped me revenge Alexander`s was simple. She had to run away from England, of course but she was afraid for her siblings` and her baby`s lifes so I made a promise to keep them safe. that`s why Charlie is so important to me. Katerina is his ancestor."
"But why Bella? Why didn`t you tell me this earlier?" Asked Edward and could see how hurt he is. But I was also annoyed. Didn`t he hear a word I said.
"Didn`t you listen to me, Edward? My brother is very dangerous. I wanted to protect you.I didn`t want Alexander`s story to be repeated." He opened his mouth to object but I cutted him off by saying.
"Let me explain, there is a new doppelganger named Elena. Charlie is her mother`s brother. Klaus found her and now he and Rebekah are in that same Mystic Falls,Virginia we are from.I have to stop them. Klaus was never mad at me for turning Katerina. How could he be after what he did. His mistake was that he belived that just by turning Katerina we were even. He underestimated my revenge. He will never have the doppelganger. Never. That`s why I am going to Mystic Falls. I `m not going to let him kill her"
The Cullens looked at me speechless.
"You are leaving us?"Asked Alice,watching me with a puppy dog face.
"I am sorry. But we `ll stay friends,right?" Alice beamed at me and then hugged me.
"There is one more thing." I said and I knew that this was going to be a real shock to them.I pointed at my necklace to them and then I took it of. All of them gasped.I knew what they were feeling, my reaction was the same the first time I asked my witch to help me disguise myself.
When I took off the necklace I immediately started glowing then slowly my eyes turned from brown to greyish blue,my hair turned from mahogany to pale blonde. The last change in my appearance was my face. My features changed and now I looked a little bit older and spectacularly beautiful.
The Cullens looked ridiculously with their mouths and eyes wide open.I guess it was quite a shock especially to Edward. To see your girlfriend change her appearance like that. Poor guy.
"And by the way my name is Arabella Mickelsen." And with that I ran outside to get my car.I needed to get to Mystic Falls as soon as possible.
