Chapter 1: Powers

I was running through the forest to a town called forks. I have been a vampire for almost 20 years now. Still, my family wants me to go live with a house of vampires who call themselves the Cullens. They know that I am coming and are curious to who I am. They said that they wouldnt mind another additon to the family.

I am not like other vampires. I do not drink human blood, the reason why is because when I was a human I was immune to blood. I hated the way it smelled; so now, as a vampire, I still don't like it. I don't even like animals blood. Yuck.

After I was turned I awoke and found that I was all alone. The vampire who had changed me couldn't stay long enough to see how I turned out. A year later I ran into my new family. They were nice and caring. But they still wanted me to come here so I could learn more about vampires.

They don't know much. So I also agreed to come here and find out for myself. I was very curious. I only knew the basic stuff. I wanted to know the details. As a vampire. But I wanted to get to know the Cullen better.

I have been running for about an hour as I came to a clearing. It looked like a meadow, It was beautiful. The sun was out and it filled the meadow with the bright sunshine. I walked in, and gasped. There on the ground was a beautiful creature. He had a strange color of bronze hair and was very muscular. Yet, still small. He was absolutely breathtaking.

He had heard me gasp, and in a blink of an eye he was in front of me. I tried to turn around and run the other direction but he garrbbed my arm.

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to disturb you." I said quietly. I looked up at him and noticed that he was very tall. All most a foot taller than me.

"Who are you?" He asked in a curious tone, looking down at me.

"I-I'm Isabella Swan. I go by bella though." My voice almost sqeaked.

"I'm Edward Cullen." He replied.

"Oh well I was just on my way to your house... Umm, bye." I turned around to head the other way, but again he grabbed my arm.

"I'll take you, it's not that far from here."

"Uh...Okay." I didn't know what els to say.

He ran off in the direction I came and I followed. He was very fast, I would give him that much, but I caught up easily. He looked at me in sheer suprise. I was also very fast. I sped up a little more and so did he. To me it seemed like he was challenging me to how fast I could go so I went faster. He was behind me a little and could not catch up. He was shocked.

After running a mile more, a huge white mansion came into view. I stopped quickly and looked behind me. Edward was standing there. I looked back at the house and saw 6 vampires on the porch. I walked over to them halfway, and they came the rest.

I looked forward and saw a man comming over. He looked like he was in his 20's.

"Hello, my name is Carlisle Cullen and this is Esme, my wife. Over there is Emmet and rosalie, Jasper and Alice, and of course you met Edward."

I nodded to each one of them, then I realized I hadn't said my name.

"Oh, my name is Bella Swan." I replied, and smiled.

"It's nice to meet you Bella, please come on in." He walked back twoards the house and I followed.

Once we were inside I knew what was about to come, them asking me questions and me answering. I had heard that they were "Vegaterians" which means they drink from animals. I was lucky I didn't have to drink blood. I thought to myself.

I looked over to Edward and saw that he was looking at me with a confused face.

"Is there something the matter." I asked him

"No, its just...I can't read your mind." He said.

"Oh... Wait! That is so cool! You can read minds. I have always wanted to do that." I said more to myself. Then I realized everyone besides Carlisle and Esme was laughing at me.

"Sorry." I whispered.

"It's fine." Edward replied.

I looked at Carlisle and asked his question for him. " Are you wondering about my diet?"

He nodded, " I don't think you drink human blood for the fact that your eyes aren't red... But they're also not a topaz color eather. They're brown." He said to me.

As he said this everyone looked closer at my eyes. "That's true, and to tell you the reason why they are brown is because I don't drink blood. I'm immune to it." I replied honestly.

"That's interesting."

"Yeah I guess, I mean I thought all vampires have to drink blood to stay alive... I guess I'm really lucky. I love animals and don't like hurting them." I said, they all looked down ashamed. I understood why.

"No... That's not what I meant. You guys have to drink animals blood. I meant since I don't have to, I am happy that I don't have to hurt animals." I still sounded like an idiot.

"You know what, I'm just going to shut up now. Nothing good is coming out." And with that I clamped my mouth shut.

They all laughed. I heard one particular laugh that I like the most and turned my head in Edwards direction. His laugh was music to my ears.

I quickly looked away and set my eyes on a beautiful piano. It was black and shiny. The one called Esme followed my gaze.

"Do you play." She asked me.

"Huh? Oh yeah, well just a little bit. I don't think I'm very good," I looked at her. "Is it yours." I continued.

She laughed, "No it's Edwards, he's really great." She looked over at Edward. " Why don't you play for her Edward." She asked him.

He smiled. "Maybe we should let her play first. I don't want to be a show off." He chuckled.

"Well... Maybe I don't want to be a show off." I giggled.

He looked at me and walked over to the piano, and sat down. "This is Esmes favorite." He said.

As soon as his hands were on the keys a sweet sound filled the room. I listen closely and almost knew the keys he was hitting. The song ended slowly.

"That was great." I said to him, he smiled. I don't know what is is about him, but I definately wanted to get to know him better. He made me feel happy, he was also easy to be around.

"Your turn." He said to me with a smirk on his face.

"Like I said, I'm not very good." I said in a soft voice. " So don't make fun of me."

They all promised not to make fun off me. So I let my hands hit the keys. Everyone gasped around me.

The song ended soon enough; everyone was watching me as I got up.

"What do you mean your not very good?" A pixie like girl asked me. " Your fantastic."

"Thank you." I said.

I turned my attention back to Carlisle and asked a question I have been wanting to ask.

"So... Does anyone else here has any speacial power?" I looked at everyone.

"Well we mainly have 3 major powers out of are family. Jasper can control emotions, Alice can see the future, and as you already know, Edward can read minds." I looked at each one as he said this.

"Wow you guys are so lucky. I like my powers but yours are so much better." I said shaking my head.

"Powers?" Carlisle asked. " We usually only get one."

"Well I don't know why I have more than one power, but I do." I replied.

"What are your powers?" Edward asked.

"Hmm lets see... I'm a shape shifter; I can turn into anything I want, from animals to human, to vampires. I am also telekinesis, And can control fire, water, and ice." I said slowly.

I looked at each Cullen and they had shocked written faces. " Is something the matter. You look like you have just seen a ghost." I asked.

" You can control fire?" The one named Alice asked. "Won't you burn if your skin touches fire?"

"Well It doesn't burn me, because it's my power; but it does burn every other vampire. Shall I show you?" I asked Carlisle. He just nodded his head.

I took both my arms and snapped my right thumb and my left. Instantly my right arm lit up in fire, and my left arm was covered in ice.

"That is amazing." Carlisle said.
