The characters in this story are from Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga. She owns them, not me, but thanks to her we get to use them for a while.
This story is about Bella being changed into a vampire. I am taking a different path than the book. There will be no Renesmee, so if you are a Nessie fan, you probably won't like this story. It is dealing with Bella being changed into a vampire and the struggles she will face having to give up her family and friends and dealing with the challenges and advantages of being a vampire. It will deal mostly with Carlisle and Bella, but will include all members of the Cullen family along with the Cullen Wolves, Jake, Leah and Seth. Will contain disciplinary spanking in some chapters. If this is not your thing, please move on.
Chapter 1 – A Disturbing Email
Things have certainly changed around here since Edward and Bella's marriage. Changed for the better. After the fight with the newborns and Riley and Victoria, we formed a truce and made a new treaty with the wolf packs. Jacob, realizing he is the true leader of the wolf pack by birth, gave his permission for Bella to be changed into a vampire after he found out we would all be put to death if she did not carry out her promise to the Volturi and become immortal. Jacob now realizes Edward and Bella belong together, but he still considers her as his best friend. Edward has no problem with Jake being around Bella anymore. So he and his little pack of Leah and Seth broke off from Sam's pack. Both packs are reconciled now and they all share each other's thoughts. Jake, Leah and Seth are now known as the Cullen Wolves. Even on the reservation of La Push they are now called Jacob Black Cullen and Seth and Leah Clearwater Cullen. They live with us now and we have added 2 more guest rooms to the house so each of them now have a room of their own. Bella and Edward live in their cottage and we added a bigger bedroom for them if they need to stay the night at the main house. Jake took Edward's old room and Seth and Leah each have a room of their own. Surprisingly, Leah, Seth and Jake are quite happy here. They know that now that they are part of the family, they fall under the same rules as my other children. My house, my rules, and consequences will be handed out swiftly when they misbehave. Jake has already learned that.
Things have been very quiet around here now since things have settled down, and we are all getting along well. Sometimes spats break out which Esme and I put a stop to as soon as possible. Esme and Leah have become very close. Sue Clearwater is now dating Charlie Swan and she has moved in with him at his house. Leah and Seth have come to think of Esme and I as their parents. They still love their mother and consider her as such, but they have adapted to living here as our children. Whenever we move from here after Bella is changed, they have said they are moving with us.
Seth and Jacob are in high school at the Reservation and I am the doctor for the wolves and I help at the reservation when needed. But mainly I take care of the wolf pack so they don't have to worry about going to the regular reservation doctor and slipping up. I have a good relationship now with Billy Black and Sam Uley. It is better for all of us. We protect and watch out for the wolves and they do the same for us. We no longer worry about trespassing on each other's land.
Recently I asked Leah what she wanted to do, if she wanted to go to college or not. She has graduated high school and is older than my children. She is in her early 20's. She told me before she phased, she considered becoming a nurse. I offered her the chance to attend nursing school, which I would pay for. She was thrilled but insisted she could never accept such a generous offer. I had to sit her down and explain to her that I would very much like her to go through with this. I explained to her that we now consider her our daughter and I would be honored to send her to school. I also talked to Sue Clearwater, Charlie and Billy Black. They were very grateful and let Leah know she should accept my offer. She finally accepted and now attends nursing school at the local college in the nearby town. She did not want to be traveling long hours driving back and forth and she wanted to be near home and LaPush. We also bought her a car of her own, which she was ecstatic about. She didn't want to accept that either until I told her we were not going to be driving her back and forth to classes so she had to take the car. Needless to say, she has now become a college student and has settled into her role as a Cullen and sibling to the others.
As I settled into my study for an afternoon of catching up on bills and correspondence, I noticed an email that looked a little odd. I clicked it open and read a startling message. Could this be for real? Was this some kind of joke? But the more I continued to read it, I realized to my horror, it was, in fact, real! How frightening is this? The Volturi have now gone electronic! I got an email from that little weasel, Aro! It had to be real, because no one else could write this but him…
'My dear brother, Carlisle—(you know how much I love the 's' in your name)—I am writing to inquire if the lovely Isabella has joined us as an immortal? I do say, my brother, we did give your son, Edward an ultimatum when he graced us with his presence that she is to be turned as soon as possible. I dare say, the wedding was in August, and it is now January of the following year…I do believe we have been most generous in granting them the time to adjust to the wedded bliss I am confident they have entered…don't you agree with this, my vegetarian brother, Carl-i-s-l-e…Therefore, I find I must insist that she is to be turned immediately. I am also sending my dear trusted Jane to your home. Since this is Saturday, I will send her next week and she will arrive next Sunday. That gives you a week to turn Bella. It should only take 3 days at the most for the transformation. She should be an immortal by the time lovely Jane graces your humble abode. She will then let me know that my instructions have been followed. Saves us all travel time. I best end my email, isn't technology wonderful, so that you can prepare for the task at hand. Good day, my brother, and wish Bella a Happy Birthday into immortality…As always, your brother, Aro Volturi'
WHAT? How dare he say this to me and he is sending that little snot Jane! I despise Aro and Jane. She takes too much delight in her position and powers. Then he has the nerve to tell me to send a reply to this email. Okay, so I will answer his miserable email.
'Aro—you certainly have not changed over the centuries! I have received your email giving a deadline on Bella's transformation. How incredible! We were planning on changing her this week on our own. So yes, this will be accomplished by the time dear Jane comes to call. Please inform Jane that as a guest in my home, she will need to abide by my rules and act accordingly, or she will answer to me. Have a pleasant day, Aro; give my regards to Caius and Marcus! Good day…As ever, your brother, Carlisle'
What a distasteful, irritant Aro is. I just could not give him the satisfaction of dictating Bella's transformation to me. I need to inform Esme of this and then I will tell Edward and we will inform Bella together. This is going to be very hard for her to hear. She will have no time to prepare for this or to say goodbye to Charlie. I will have to inform the rest of the family after Bella has been told. We have no choice in the matter now. This must be complete before Aro's little spy, Jane, arrives. I dread this, I hate that Bella has to be rushed into this. I am calling Esme to my study to inform her since we don't have much time.
"Carlisle, you called me, darling?" Esme asked entering the study.
"Yes, my love. Please close the door and come sit down." I told her. "It seems the Volturi have become acquainted with the technological age and now have computers and email."
"What are you talking about, Carlisle? Email from the Volturi? Are you kidding?" She asked shocked.
"I wish I was. The email is from Aro. He is insisting we turn Bella this week and he is sending Jane here next Sunday to see that we carried out his instructions. We have no choice but to do this as soon as possible." I informed her.
"Oh no, Carlisle! How will we tell her? She will be crushed that she has to lose Charlie and her friends now? I can't believe this is happening. She is going to be devastated." Esme worried.
"I know, but there is no putting it off now. I will call Edward here and tell him and then we will have to tell Bella. After she is informed, we will have to tell the rest of the family. Right before you came in, I mentally told Edward to come alone. I am sure he will be here soon," I said to her, as there was a knock on the study door.
"Come in, son," I called to Edward. I showed Edward the email and explained to him what needed to be done. He was furious as expected. We did calm him down and he agreed we now had no choice. He was aching knowing that Bella was about to lose her family and friends on such short notice. He decided to call her up right away and we could tell her immediately. She had come up with him but was downstairs. He went to the door and called her up to the study. She came in happily and greeted and kissed both Esme and me. I was envisioning how different she would be walking out of here. I dreaded the task at hand but had to proceed.
"Bella, I'm afraid there is a little problem we have to deal with," I began.
"What's wrong dad? Am I in trouble again?" She asked smirking.
"No, dear, you are not." I said as Esme sat next to her and grabbed her hand.
"W-what's wrong? Did something happen? Is it Charlie?" Bella asked panicked.
"No, but it's not going to be easy to hear. I'm afraid I received an email from Aro. He is insisting that you be turned immediately and he is sending Jane here next Sunday to make sure you have been changed." I said outright.
"WHAT? How can he do this? He can't tell us what to do? I-I'm not ready yet! I…Charlie…Renee…no! No dad, please! Not like this! I-I c-can't even see them again? No, please, Edward do something…" Bella screamed and began sobbing.
Edward ran to her and grabbed her and held her. He tried to console her, but she was too upset. She was shaking and crying in his arms.
"Dad, can't we ask them to give us a couple of weeks yet," Edward asked.
"I don't see that happening. Once Aro gives an ultimatum, we have no choice but to follow it. Jane will be here to make sure we have done as he said.
"Dad please! Don't make me give Charlie up. He won't know, he hasn't come here since we've been married. I just can't let him go yet, please dad! Don't do this to me…" Bella begged me.
"No, you will look different and your eyes will be red. Besides, it will be too risky for you to be around humans. You don't know how strong the desire for blood is. You could be alright one minute and the next attack him. I'm sorry, but you will not be allowed to be around him or see him," I told her.
"Dad, I can't give Charlie up yet. Please don't make me do this yet, please! I'm not ready. Tell Aro I need just a few weeks yet, please!" She begged. She was heart broken and I had to make her understand.
"Bella, I'm so sorry darling, but we have no choice," I said to her. "If Aro sends Jane here and you have not been changed, it is most likely Jane will change you herself and then report back to Aro that we did not follow his orders. We could all be condemned then. I'm sorry Bella, but we have no say in the matter. We have to carry out your transformation."
"NO! No, I won't do it like this! Edward, help me…" she cried.
"Bella, dad's right. I'm sorry, my love, but we have no choice. I will not let you be changed by that horrid, Jane! We have to go through with it. As much as I hate it, I have to say dad is right," Edward told her. "Dad can do it, I would rather dad did it anyway."
"I won't do it yet, I have to see Charlie one last time," Bella cried running to the door.
Edward flashed to the door before she even got halfway there. "Bella, it is better if you don't see him one last time. It will be too hard. Please love, let's just let dad do this and get it over with. It's the only way and the best way."
"Bella, Edward is right. It is better you don't see Charlie. Go back to the cottage with Edward. Come back tonight at around 7 and we will begin the change. I'm sorry, but it is better to just do it and not dwell on it. Go get yourself together with Edward and I will see you both here tonight. I'm afraid I must insist on this Bella. Please don't make me give you an order," I said to her.
"This isn't fair, dad! What right has Aro to dictate my life! What is his fascination with me being turned? I don't care what he says, I'm not ready! He can just wait until I feel like being changed. Let that Jane come, she can't do anything to me anyway," Bella said with defiance.
"Bella! We have no choice in this matter! I hate this as much as you do, but we must follow through with this. I will not endanger this family by defying the Volturi. They will condemn us and I will not let that happen. I told you before and you and I have talked about what will happen during and after the change. You know you must obey me and follow my rules for your safety, the safety of the family, and the safety of the humans. You will be under restriction now and you will obey me, young lady! Do I make myself clear?" I said sternly to her.
Bella just looked at me and broke down in Edward's arms. He nodded to me and picked her up and carried her out and back to the cottage. Esme and I hugged each other. We went down the stairs to tell the rest of our children the news. We didn't have to say much as they all heard what had happened. They were all shocked as the rest of us. Even Leah, Seth and Jake were upset. We all just looked at each other. Suddenly Jacob stood up and shouted angrily to us.
"This is all wrong! She shouldn't have to give up Charlie and her family and friends. I hate this! I hate Aro and Jane and that lousy Volturi! I need to get out for a while," Jake said as he ran outside and phased.
We heard him howl as he ran through the woods. Leah and Seth ran after him calling his name but then they too phased and ran after him trying to catch him. We heard the 2 of them howl after him.
We all looked at each other and sat down. We were all in shock. I then suggested we go and get things ready for tonight. Esme, Alice and Rose helped me set up the downstairs study as a makeshift hospital room. We got the IV's and bed ready. I would sedate her with morphine and hope that would keep her from feeling the painful burning that would soon be racing through her circulatory system. If only it would be over in a few hours, but it usually takes 3 days at the most; sometimes sooner, sometimes longer. It all depended on the individual. No matter what, it is still the most painful thing she will ever go through. After she is sedated, I will bite her on the neck and then together Edward and I will bite her in all the vital areas hoping to help the venom to spread fast and reach her heart faster. I was not looking forward to this evening…
