Visions of Love
C1: The Pixie's Return
Standard Disclaimer: I don't own any of the recognizable characters
A/N: So this will be my second Twilight fic, and I've decided to go to a bit more usual pairing. There will of course be a lot of Edward/Carlisle bashing since i really, really hate them both. Some characters will be a bit OOC, but I hope you guys will think it will be in a good way. Since my HP fanfic is completely done, this is the one I will focus on for the foreseeable future. Right now I have about 4 chapters written, and to this point I don't know how much chapters there will be. So with that being said, enjoy and R&R.
It's been three months since Edward left me alone in the woods and each day I am getting angrier with him. He took my family from me, the only ones who ever looked at me since I moved here. Add to that the fact that there is still a vampire after me because he thought it was best to separate me from the others while he made a failed attempt to protect me.
The only good thing coming from this is that Alice secretly keeps in contact in me, and she told me a whole different story then he told me. The clever pixie that she is told me that she would send help and that she would see me soon.
That was a week ago, and I'm getting a bit desperate. Every day the hole in my heart of their, and more specifically Alice's leaving grows bigger and even Charlie is starting to notice the change.
I let myself fall back onto my bed and prop my feet up against the headboard, thinking about the family I lost due to an idiot boy who claimed to be my mate.
As I am thinking about the Cullens, I hear a giggle coming from the window, a giggle I would know in my sleep, along with a divine scent that tickles my nostrils "Alice." I said almost in a whisper.
"What a strange way to sleep Bella." She said as she gracefully stepped into my room.
I jump up from the bed and hug her with every ounce of strength I still have left in my body. "Ali, is it really you?" I asked softly as the tears streamed down my cheeks.
Alice smiled and pulled me close to her body "yes Bella, it is really me, and I'm sorry that I left, I should never have done that to you." She said softly.
"But why did you do it? Why did you all leave me when you knew how it would affect me?" I said as I sobbed into her shoulder.
She smiled and led me to my bed. "Because Edward convinced us that you didn't want anything to do with us, and of course me and the others fought against leaving, but we are bound by our Coven Leader's decision. And since Carlisle is the only one that sided with Edward, we were overruled none the less."
I chuckled darkly at that. "Why does that not surprise me, Edward is and always will be his Golden Boy, but as far as I am concerned he can go walk into a fucking volcano." I said as I was pulled against the raven haired pixie.
"And I agree Bella, that's why most of us have come back, which besides me is Rose, Emmett, Esme and of course Jazz. But before we can go and see them, which they are all very excited about I may add, I have to be honest with you. You and Edward were never mated, and he only let you believe that because he wanted your blood." She said softly.
I smiled at that. "I knew that Ali, and I shouldn't have drawn it out for as long as I have, because I have come to a realization over the past few months, but I am afraid of what everyone might say."
She smiled and pulled me into another hug. "You can tell me anything Bella, you know that."
I took a deep breath before I started, knowing that this could mean the end of our friendship, but she had been honest with me, and she deserved the same from me. "The truth is Ali, that I like girls, and I understand that this will change things, but I just wanted you to know." I said as I felt a blush creep up my cheeks.
She only smiled at that. "I'm glad you have the nerve to tell me this Bella, because I know how difficult it must be for you to tell me this. And since we're being honest, I think it's time you know something about me. Jasper is not my mate, he never was and he found his mate when we were in Denali. The truth is I like girls too, and more specifically you. I know this will be a lot to process in one night, but you are my mate, but I will understand if you have some reservations about this." She said softly.
I smiled brightly and hugged her tightly. "I'm glad you told me this Ali, because I feel that for you too, and I have from the first time I met you. I was never in love with Edward for who he was, but only what he was, but my eyes were always drawn to you."
"Is it bad that I really want to kiss you right now?" She asked with a twinkling smile.
I blushed slightly at that. "No, actually I would like that very much."
She smiled coyly and pressed her lips to mine, both of us smiling into it as I felt complete for the first time in my life.
Far sooner than either of us would have liked Alice pulled back and smiled at me. "Thank you Bella, this is far more than I would have expected from tonight, I thought that you would be furious at us for leaving." She said softly.
I smiled and kissed her lips again, finding myself already addicted to them. "And I was, right until the moment you stepped through my window, then I realized I can only be mad at two people here, and those two would do well to stay the hell away from me." I said as I pulled her close.
"And they will Bella, we've split ourselves from Edward and Carlisle and elected Esme as our new Coven Leader." She said softly.
I only smiled, but that smile quickly trailed off into a yawn, since it was becoming really late already and I had a very long and dreary day at school, although that wasn't anything new.
Alice seemed to notice and smiled at me. "You're tired aren't you? It's okay, you get some sleep and I'll pick you up tomorrow to see the others again." She said as she made an attempt to stand up.
I grabbed her arm, although I knew that wouldn't stop her in the slightest, but to my surprise she stopped her movements. "Will you stay with me tonight Alice, I would like to have a nightmare free night for once."
She smiled at that. "Of course Bella, I would do anything for you, but I will need to borrow some pajamas, since I didn't bring anything but my radiant self here tonight." She said with a soft smile.
"I probably have some in my drawer, since I rarely wear them anymore." I said softly.
I saw that familiar twinkle in her eyes as she smiled at me. "And what do you usually wear to bed Bella?" She asked curiously.
I blushed slightly at that. "Depends on the weather, in the winter usually sweats and a t-shirt and in the summer usually nothing." I muttered softly.
She smiled mischievously at that. "So, during a night like tonight you would wear nothing to bed, am I right?" She asked softly.
I nodded and blushed even brighter as she also undressed and then crawled into bed with me. "If you're not going to bother with clothes, then neither will I." She said before kissing me on the back of my neck.
"I love you Ali." I said softly, not even realizing what I said until I felt her tense up behind me.
"What did you say?" She asked in a whisper.
Realizing what I said, I blushed brightly, not even daring to look at Alice, who quickly rolled me over so she could straddle me. "Did you just say that you love me?" She asked with a barely contained smile.
"Yes Alice, I love you, I didn't really mean to say it already, but it is the truth. I love you with every human fiber of my being." I said softly.
I was sure that if Alice could still cry, she would. "You have no idea how long I wished for you to say those words to me. I love you too Bella." She said before kissing me.
"Thank god it's Friday and I don't have anywhere to be tomorrow, because I could get used to you lying on top of me all naked and kissing me." I said softly, for once feeling bold enough to comment on her beauty.
Alice smiled and lowered herself so that our foreheads were touching. "And I love finally being able to lie with you like this Bella, it is something I have dreamed of from the first time I saw you. And I promise that I will never leave you alone ever again." She said before kissing me deeply.
I couldn't help but moan into the kiss, and again feeling bold, I let my hands roam over the perfection that was Alice's body.
Alice moaned softly at me. "Bella sweetie, I can see you can barely keep your eyes open, and as much as I love to feel your hands on my body, you need your rest. I promise that I will stay with your through the night, and tomorrow we can see the others if you are up to it." She said softly.
I couldn't resist pouting at her words, but she gave me a quick kiss to make me smile again. "Okay Ali, we can see the others tomorrow and just because you said so I will get some sleep, although I want nothing more than hold you and never let go." I said with a slight yawn.
She smiled at that. "And trust me when I say that I want the same thing, but you need your rest, and I will be right here to hold you for as long as you need me." She said softly.
I smiled and gave her a last kiss before she rolled off of me and immediately pulled me into her arms, cuddling into my back as I fell asleep.
In all of my undead years I have never been happier. I finally had my mate in my arms and she loves me as much as I love her. Even with my powers of foresight I have to admit that I hadn't expected to end up naked in bed with her, but I must say I am liking these turn of events. She feels amazing against my body, and I can't wait until I can love her like she deserves to be loved, which I intend to show her each and every day.
I'm broken out of my musings by my phone, that vibrates in my pocket. Within a second I grab it and cuddle back behind my love, and as I look at the screen I see a text from Esme.
'How is she Alice? E.'
I smiled at the text 'She's fine Esme, I told her everything, and she loves me as well. We'll come by tomorrow around noon. A.'
'That's good to hear Alice, but I must advice you to move slow with her, we don't know how our leaving will affect her in the long run. We'll be ready tomorrow. Everyone is anxious to see her again. E.'
'I know, Edward almost ruined her, but I plan to shower her with all the love she deserves and give her back her family again. But we'll talk tomorrow, I don't want to risk waking her now that she finally can get a good night's sleep. A.'
That is the last text I sent before I put my phone on silent and put it on the shelve above her bed. I then pull her close to my body and smile as I hear her murmur contently as she snuggles into me.
As I close my own eyes and relax from the sound of her heartbeat, the one thing that has comforted me from the first time I saw her.
The hours seem to fly by as I listen to Bella's heartbeat and too soon Bella wakes up again, nuzzling into my body as she moans contently.
"I must be dreaming, because I swear I'm in bed with an angel." She said sleepily.
"You're not dreaming baby, I'm really here in bed with you, and I plan to hold you for as long as possible." I said with a smile.
She groaned softly and turned around in my arms, kissing my lips softly. "Good morning Ali." She said with a smile.
"Good morning, my beautiful Bella. How did you sleep?" I asked softly.
She blushed a little at that. "I slept fine, I only woke up for a few minutes when I heard a phone vibrate, but other than that I slept okay." She said softly, but I felt it was not the entire story.
"That was Esme who texted me to ask how you were doing. I'm sorry if it kept you awake." I said softly.
She smiled and kissed me. "It didn't keep me awake, I just woke shortly from the first vibration, I fell back asleep right after.
I smiled and pulled her closer to my body, and to my surprise she turned around and nuzzled my neck as she wrapped her arms around my waist.
"Bella, are you okay?" I asked softly.
She nodded against my neck and smiled. "I just want to be close to my mate. Is that wrong?" She said softly.
"Of course not baby, I'm just a bit surprised you feel the pull already, usually humans don't feel it until they are turned." I said with a smile.
I felt her chuckle against me. "Well you guys always said I didn't act like a human, so I think this is another piece of evidence that I am destined to be a part of your world, and by your side forever." She said before kissing my neck softly.
"Oh Bella, every time I seem to figure you out, you amaze me again and again. I love you so much." I said with a dreamy smile.
"Then take me Ali, I want to be yours in every way possible." She said huskily.
As much as I wanted to ravage her right here and now, I knew I shouldn't yet. "As much as I would love to my Bella, I can't just yet. I want to do this right, so that means I am going to take you on a date as soon as possible where I will try and gain your affections in a human way."
She pouted adorably, which made me giggle. "I know you want to my love, and believe me, I want too as well. But I want a chance to give you everything Dickward never could, and that includes a true equal relationship." I said before kissing her pout away.
She smiled at that, seeing the wisdom in it. "I think it's adorable that you want to date me before we consummate our relationship. And I think it's sweet that you want to make me forget about everything Fuckward put me through. To be honest I was merely saying that to make sure this was real, and not another dream, since I've been dreaming a lot about you recently, and every time I wake up just before you make me cum." She said with a blush.
"Oh, I'll make you cum someday my love, and not just once either. How about I'll make you a deal, you go take a shower and get dressed before we go to the family, and then I will think about something we can do for a date tomorrow." I said with a wink.
Her blush darkened a bit before she gave me a loving kiss and getting out of bed to go and shower, leaving me alone with my thoughts.
I was seriously glad that I couldn't blush anymore, because I know I would have been beet red as she almost skipped to the bathroom, her naked butt jiggling deliciously. I moaned almost inaudible at the sight and focused my thoughts to different things, like the date I already had planned for her.
Unfortunately, I couldn't see her response to it, so for once my visions were black when it came to my Bella. I had planned a lovely dinner for us in Seattle and then we would go for some light shopping, since I knew how much she hated it.
I realized that I also had to announce my return to Charlie, and I had already seen that he would be a bit grumpy in the beginning, he would be glad that I returned to take care of Bella. In the process, he would come to hate Edward even more, which would only benefit our family in the long run.
I knew the others were anxious to see her again, and especially Rose, since she wanted to apologize to her. I had already seen that they were going to be great friends, and that their friendship will become even closer once Bella was turned.
That was the only thing that made me frown a bit. I had already seen the how, why and when she would be turned, and I was going to try my hardest to prevent that future.
I was so deep in thought that I didn't even notice Bella come back into the room. My eyes snapped up to hers as she straddled me in her black bra and panties. "Those looked like some pretty deep thoughts baby, was that all for our date?" She asked sweetly.
I smiled at her "Partly yes, but there are some other things as well, one of which I want to keep a surprise for you. The other was about Charlie and how my return will affect everything." I said softly, for now omitting the part of what I saw of her becoming one of us.
"See, that's what I love about you, you're at least willing to tell me the truth, as opposed to Fuckward. And as much as I don't like surprises, I've learned never to bet against you, so I'll let myself be surprised by my gorgeous mate." She said before kissing me.
"Thank you, baby, that means a lot to me. And trust me, this is one surprise you are going to love. I promise there will be no presents or parties. I've learned my lesson with that." I said sadly.
She gave me a kiss to kiss my frown away. "Don't beat yourself up over that my love, what's done is done. We both know it was Dickward's fault anyway. He shouldn't have thrown me through the table."
I smiled brightly at that. "You know how glad Jasper will be to hear that. He was beating himself up over the fact that he attacked you."
"I'll make sure to tell him that then. I was hoping to get a bit closer to both him and Rose." She said as though she could read my mind.
"Then let's go and see them my sweet Bella. They're all anxious to see you again and apologize to you." I said as I pulled her up with me.
She smiled at that. "Then I'll go and get dressed, unless you want me to come in my underwear."
"I think that would be a funny, not to mention sexy sight, but I think it's best if you get dressed." I said with a similar smile.
Bella gave me a quick peck before she walked to her closet, picking out a comfy shirt and jeans.
Once she was dressed we made our way downstairs and outside, where Bella gasped a little when she saw my car. "Why am I not surprised to see you with a car like this. You've always had a flair for the dramatics my love." She said as I opened the door to my Porsche.
I only smiled at that "What can I say, it drives like a dream, and it'll give me something to butter up to Charlie to."
She rolled her eyes and relaxed into the leather. "Before we go I do have one confession to make. I hope you remember Victoria?"
She nodded and looked at me a bit wearily. "It's nothing bad, I promise Bella, but she came to us a few days ago, and asked if she and her mate could join us, we were of course weary of that, but she assured us she never had it in for you, and that James wasn't her mate, just her brother figure. She is dying to apologize for everything and she hopes she will get that chance."
Bella sighed at that. "I guess, I never understood what I did to her, so it'll be good to hash things out between us. And if you say she's telling the truth I know it is. I will never bet against you."
"She'll be glad to hear that. Both her and her mate are currently still waning off the human blood, so don't be alarmed when you see a bit of red in their eyes, and since they are newly mated, expect them to be all lovey dovey with each other."
Bella smiled at that and gave my hand a squeeze. "Since we will probably be the same way I won't mind them being lovey dovey with each other, as long as they won't mind about us doing the same."
"They won't love, if anything they will be happy for us both. Victoria especially, since she knows what Edward did to you and wants revenge for everything he did."
"At least Victoria and I will have something to bond over." She said as the house came into view.
I saw the entire family waiting for us outside with slight smiles on their faces, the most prominent being Victoria and her mate Julian, who had his arms wrapped around her waist.
"Are you ready my love?" I asked softly.
She nodded and smiled at me before I got out and raced over to her side to take her hand.
As we walked towards the family, my nerves were out of control, and I really hoped it didn't show on my face.
Everyone was smiling at me, and even Jasper had a genuine smile on his face, as well as the blonde in his arms, who I figured was his mate. Seeing Victoria again shocked me a little, but her smile was bright and kind, a total change from the first time I saw her and even Esme seemed to have found her mate, since there was another blonde woman right next to her.
"Hello Bella, how have you been?" Esme asked in her sweet motherly voice.
I smiled and ran into her arms for a hug. I missed her so much and it showed in how I clung to her. "It's okay sweetie, I'm sorry for everything. We didn't mean to pack up and leave, but Edward and Carlisle threatened to kill us if we didn't go." She said as she rubbed my back.
"It's okay, it hurt when you all left, but I never blamed you. I knew it was all Edward's fault from the beginning.
I also know that I will kill them the next time I see either of them, they will get hurt, very much so if I can help it. The last thing I know for sure is that you will make an awesome Coven Leader, as well as my Mom once again." I said once I had control over my emotions again.
Esme smiled brightly at that. "My dear Bella, I promise to never hurt you like this again. I will be the mother that you deserve and shower you in motherly love."
I smiled and gave her a quick kiss on the cheek, hearing Alice and the woman next to her growl ever so softly behind me. "I'm sorry baby, but I just wanted to thank Esme for still seeing me as a daughter." I said as I gave her a loving look.
Alice only smiled and nodded. "Sorry Esme, I didn't mean to growl at you." She said contrite.
Esme only smiled as I turned my looks to Rose and Emmett. "And you two, stop feeling sorry for yourselves and give me a hug. I've missed my two favorite siblings." I said as I held my arms open to them.
They both smiled and gave me a gentle three-way hug. "We're sorry Bella Bear, we tried to convince him it was a bad idea, but you know how he is." Emmett said softly.
"And I also wanted to apologize for how I acted. I never hated you, far from it in fact. I always saw you as a breath of fresh air in our family. I just hated how you acted around Edward, because I knew that wasn't how you usually acted." Rosalie said softly.
I only smiled and hugged them tighter. "I know that Rose. That's why I said my two favorite siblings, didn't I. I never blamed you, because I hated myself how I acted around him as well. But it is all water under the bridge now. And Emmett, of course I know you guys fought for me, but we all know it could never be enough. Fuckward is and will always be Carlisle's Golden Boy."
They both smiled and stepped back a bit, leaving me face to face with the red-haired woman that had haunted my dreams for three months.
"Hello Bella, I was hoping you would be willing to talk to me and let me apologize for everything." She said softly.
"Of course I am, Alice explained most of it on the way here, so I am willing to hear you out." I said with a soft smile.
She smiled brightly at me. "Thank you. Let me start off by saying that I never held any ill will against you, and that James was about as good at listening to people as Edward probably was. I used to see him like a brother, but over the years I realized I just never wanted to be alone anymore, and therefore went with most of his plans. Again I am sorry for that, I shouldn't have let that spiral out of control like I did, that's why Laurent and myself went away once we found out he wanted you."
"I figured it was something like that, and I forgive you of course. I could see it in your eyes the first time I saw you that there was a lot of pain hidden inside of you. But you know now I want to get to know you a bit better, as well as your newfound mate. But I am curious, what did you do once you and Laurent separated yourselves from him?" I asked finally.
She smiled at that. "Laurent and I went to Alaska, after warning Esme about James and his nature and she was kind enough to point us to some relatives of their that lived there. When we got there Laurent found his mate in Irina and they allowed me to live with them for a while. That only lasted for two months when I found Julian there while I was hunting. I knew from the moment I looked into his eyes that we were destined to be together, but I also told him that it could only happen if he switched to an animal diet as well, which he gladly did. A few days ago I got a call from Alice that she was going back for you and that I should come with the rest of the family." She said softly.
I smiled at that, giving Alice a playful glare. "She came to you a few days ago, did she love?" I asked with a smirk.
She smiled at that. "Sorry baby, I didn't see how you would react to the news so I figured it was best to play it safe."
"I understand that love. I was only teasing you." I said with a wink.
"Perhaps I should properly introduce myself then. My name is Julian and it is pleasure to make your acquaintance after hearing so much about you." The man next to Victoria said with a faint British accent.
"Pleased to meet you too Julian. I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about in the coming weeks." I said with a smile.
He only nodded as I turned my attention to Jasper and the blonde in his arms. "Hey Jasper, how have you been?" I asked with a smile.
"Hello Bella, I've been doing well, thank you for asking and I hope you'll let me apologize for what happened." He said in his true gentlemanly voice.
I smiled at him. "Of course you may, but let me just say you've got nothing to apologize for. If Edward hadn't pushed me through the table, I would never have gotten hurt so bad, I noticed you seemed to be okay when I cut my finger."
"I was okay to that point, but I still want to apologize to you, I never should have lost control the way I did, nor should I have ignored you the way I did during the first time we met. I heard from Alice you're quite the history buff, so I was hoping you would let me take you to a museum sometime." He said with a smile.
I smiled and nodded at him, although I know he was technically bribing me. "I would love to Jasper, and congratulations on finding your mate." I said with a smile.
He smiled and gave the blonde a kiss on the cheek. "I heard a lot about you Bella, I'm Kate Denali, it's nice to meet you." She said with a similar smile to my own.
"It's nice to meet you too Kate. I'm sure we'll have plenty to talk about in the coming days." I said softly.
She only smiled and nodded. "Now that everyone has had a chance to apologize, would you mind if we took this inside, I'm getting kind of tired by standing around for so long." I said as I molded myself in Alice's arms again.
"Of course not Bella, you don't even have to ask." Esme said with a smile as she ushered me and Alice inside, the others following with smiles on their faces.
