"My story doesn't start the day I was born, it starts thousands years before that…"
"…hidden in an old tomb of a wise apothecary was a quatrain that prophesied of a child born from two different magical parents. The prophesy was this:
When three planets burn as one
over a sky of dancing lights,
magic will rest for a holy day
to welcome the twice-blessed child.
So years passed and no prophesied child was born. But one day, on All Hallows Eve, or Halloween for you guys. A witch was born, it wasn't the twice-blessed child but it would become a very important and very powerful witch. Her name was Melinda, Melinda Warren, she had three power, telekinesis, premonition and molecular immobilization, this last one can also be calling freezing, basically you slow down the molecules so much the object or the person freezes. For example," Melinda looked at the vase in front of her in the coffee table, threw it in the air then froze it. Looking around she could see that everyone had a surprised face. Giving a smile and putting the vase back at the table she continued. "So I don't really know what happened after, but I know that during the next years she moved to Salem, created her own Book of Shadows, which is like a cook for witches it contains every spell potion they created and every demon they have met and vanquished. She also got married, and he left her. When she was 32 she fell in love again this time it was with a warlock. His name was Matthew Tate, you see a warlock can either be a male witch of can be an evil witch. His power was that he could copy other powers but only in they were used on him, Melinda thought she could trust him, so she used her powers on Matthew and after gaining her powers he betrayed her, told the council that she was a witch. The council arrested Melinda and she was to be burned at the stake. The day before she died Matthew came visit her, and she cursed him. So the next day she was killed."
"Wait, why didn't she use her powers or something to escape?" Rosalie asked, it was obvious in all their faces that they didn't understand why Melinda had accepted her fate.
"She had a daughter Rosalie, and the council wasn't sure if she was a witch or not, they were just assuming. If she had used her powers she would have proven them right, and they would have burned her daughter as well. So she accepted her fate and hoped some kind soul would raise her daughter so the Warren witch line could continue. Right before she was burned Melinda had a premonition, and with that she created a prophesy saying that her line would keep on growing and that one day three witches would be born, three sisters, together they would form the most powerful force of good in the world. Each of the sisters would have one of Melinda's powers. They would be called The Charmed Ones. Years passed and no Charmed Ones yet. In 1937 a witch was born. Her name was Penelope Johnson. She moved to San Francisco and her family built Manor there. Her power was telekinesis, she married Allen Halliwell, and changed her last name as well. Even though she married four times, she only truly loved Allen. With him she had a daughter that she named Patricia. When she was 17 her father was killed by her mother's best friend. Her mother, who saw the scene, then became and even more powerful witch. She became so powerful that the name Halliwell became so sort of protective charm, demons were really scared of her and her daughter."
"Wait, demons are real?"
"Of course Emmet, now could you please stop interrupting my story!" Receiving a nod from Emmet and an apologetic face Melinda continued. "So, Patricia married a mortal, Victor Bennet. With him they had three daughters, Prudence, Piper and Phoebe. Prue had telekinesis, Piper molecular immobilization and Phoebe premonition. They bounded their powers because they wanted them to have a normal childhood, not having to worry about demons hunting them. Patricia cheated on Victor with her whitelighter. Whitelighter is a person who did good in his life and died doing a good deed. So when they die the Elders, powerful whitelighters, give them a choice they can either go to heaven or they can become whitelighters, and guide future whitelighters and witches. Patty died about a year after trying to kill a demon. Years later, in 1998, Penelope dies. The girls all move back to the manor, and Phoebe says a spell by accident that unlocks their powers. And the Charmed Ones were formed. Prue got reunited with a high school boyfriend, Andy he was an inspector, but she couldn't tell him she was a witch so they broke up. Then one day he followed the girls, when they were off hunting a demon, and found out that they were witches. He started helping the girls whenever he could, but one day trying to save the girls from a demon he died. But he was turned into a whitelighter, and he and Prue started dating again. The only problem was the Elders didn't allow witches and whitelighters to be together so when they found out that they were together they recycled Andy."
"Recycled?" Carlisle asked.
"Yeah, the Elders take the whitelighters soul and send them back to Earth, the whitelighters are reborn and they don't remember anything about their old lives or of being a whitelighters." Melinda answered Carlisle question. "After a few weeks Prue found out she was pregnant with Andy's child. On February 21 of 2000…"
"Wait that was the day we became human."
"Yes, Edward. 18 years and 7 months ago you guys became human because magic ceased to exist to welcome the twice-blessed child. Prue named her Melinda, Melinda Warren Halliwell."
"It's you!" Jacob said, they all had surprise written all over their face.
"Yeah Jacob, I'm the twice-blessed child." Melinda ended with a smile. "Well I guess that's my story."
"What about your mother, what happened to her?" Esme asked with a concerned face.
"When I was 14 months olds and I was at my grandfather's house, while my mom and my aunts were protecting an innocent from a demon named Shax, they ran into the manor and Aunt Phoebe went to the attic to get the spell, the demon appeared and he threw aunt Piper through the wall. You know that every child have a special conection with their mother, and mine was even more powerful. So when I sensed that my mom was in danger I orbed to the manor, when Shax saw me he didn't twice he threw me through the wall, I died..."
"What? Then how are you here right now?" "That's impossible." "No way!" They all were surprised and wouldn't stop talking, some of them had even stood up.
"Calm down!" Melinda had to scream to get they al to stop talking. "Okay, let me finish. Then you'll all understand." Melinda stopped, waiting for Jacob, Rosalie and Esme to sit back down again. Once those three were finally seated Melinda continues. "My aunt Phoebe called Leo, their whitelighter and aunt Piper husband, to heal aunt Piper. Aunt Phoebe told me once that my death was the worst scene she had ever seen, my mom kept holding my body close, crying her eyes out. After about a few hours uncle Leo finally convinced my mom to let go of me. So mom got so mad that she went after Shax, unfortunately her together with aunt Piper they ended exposing magic. The elders got so mad that they forbid any whitelighter to help them. So they decided to go to the Underworld and ask a demon named Tempus, these demon has the ability to control time, since demons were exposed as well, they thought they would work together to fix things. So aunt Phoebe went to the Underworld and together with Cole, who was her boyfriend and a half demon, they asked The Source of All Evil to get Tempus to reverse time. While Aunt Phoebe and Uncle Leo were down there, mom and Aunt Piper were up here, and they were facing problems of their own. Some people didn't like the fact that they were witches, and mom was so distracted with the fact that I was dead that she didn't see when someone barged into the manor, unfortunately they were backwards to the person so they didn't have time to react when she shoot Aunt Piper. She died on the way to the hospital. Mom was a wreck, her sister and her daughter were dead. So when Uncle Leo orbed into the hospital room, and saw the scene he told mom about the deal that The Source wanted to do, he said that he could get Tempus to turn back time but it would be one life for another. Mom didn't think twice, Uncle Leo orbed back down. When he left the Angel of Death appeared he said that even if they changed time I would still die because I would feel that she was in danger and keep coming for her. So mom told him to change that, do anything to stop it from happening. And he did. When time was about to go back he appeared in my grandpa's house and he took his hand during the reverse of time. When it was over grandpa still knew everything that had happened and he instead of letting me orb to the manor when mom was in danger he didn't let me orb out. So when Uncle Leo and Aunt Phoebe finally were able to get out of the Underworld mom was already dead."
"Melinda that's horrible, I'm so sorry." After a long silence Esme said.
"Don't it's a long time ago. I don't even remember her, she died in my place. I really don't know how I can live with myself sometimes." Melinda said, she was now standing in front of a window. "But sometimes that's the only reason I can live with myself, she died on my place she wanted me to have a life, she wanted me to grow up, to be happy." Melinda said turning around they all could see her eyes full with unshed tears.
"I guess now it's our time to tell the story." Carlisle said with a smile. "I was born around 1640, in London, I was turned when I was around 23. My father was a pastor who would lead hunts against witches, werewolves and vampires. One day during a hunt I was bitten, three days later I woke up in the middle of the forest. I refused to feed on humans so I almost starved myself to death, then one day I heard a herd of deer passing and attacked. I found out that I didn't need to drink human blood to survive. I studied med, and a few years later I became a doctor. In 1918 I was at Chicago, taking care of a few patients with the Spanish Influenza, there I met Edward, he was dying and after his mother asked me to change him, so I did. Three years later I found Esme in the morgue." He smiled towards his mate, and took her hand. "She had tried to kill herself after her new born died. So I turned her."
"I was turned in 1933, Carlisle found me raped and beaten and left to die on the street by my fiancé and his friends. In 1935 I was out hunting when I found Emmet in the woods he had been mauled by a bear. Not trusting myself to change him, I carried him for over 100 miles so Carlisle could change him." Rosalie had stood up and was now hugging her husband. Emmet had a huge smile in his face.
"We came next, I was turned in 1863, I was a major in the Confederate Army. I was changed by a vampire who used newborns as soldiers and fought for territory. After years on her service I ran away. In 1948, in Philadelphia, I met this angel." Jasper continued without taking his eyes from his mate. "She had been waiting for me. She told me all about the Cullens and how we could live without having to kill human."
"I don't really know how I was turned, I don't really have any memory of how I was before or who I was. All that I know is because of a vampire who tried to kill me told me. All I know is that I woke up in 1920 and waited for Jasper in Philadelphia until 1948."
"I'm guessing Bella met Edward while she was still human, feel in love, got married, got pregnant, had Renesmee, and got turned three days ago. Right?" Melinda asked.
"How did you know?" Bella asked, taking finally a step forward.
"Red eyes, and Renesmee is half-human. The marriage part I was hoping it would be true." Melinda finished with a yawn.
"How about we call this a night? After all you must be tired Melinda. You're going to stay with us or not?" Esme in a motherly tone, reminding Melinda of all the moments her aunts had taken over in being the mother figure since she didn't have one.
"That would be great, and yeah I'm actually. They thought it would be better."
"Okay, Melinda, lets get you a room to sleep."
See you soon
