Chapter One: Pink Eyes
Finally, the three horrible days were over.
The pain was the worse I have ever felt, and I never want to go through it again. Even though I knew what was happening the entire time, I was begging for death every second of it.
I sighed in relief and opened my eyes, there looking down at me was God…well, my fiancée, but I still considered him God. Slowly, his lips spread into a heart stopping crooked smile.
"Feeling better?" He asked.
"Very much so." I replied sitting up and crawling over to sit in his lap. He chuckled at my crawling and kissed the top of my head.
I looked him in the eyes smiling and then kissed him on the lips, "So," I began pulling back and tilting my head to the side, "Where is everybody?"
"They're all downstairs in the living room to see you," He said and then was about to say more but Emmett interrupted.
"EXACTLY!" He groaned, "We've been waiting forever! Let me see my little sister now!" I started laughing and was surprised to find out it sounded like music.
Edward chuckled, "Fine, but here." He said handing me a JC Penny's bag, "Alice told me to tell you to change into these clothes before you come down." He kissed me on the lips gently and then walked out of the room to the rest of the family.
I looked inside the bag and smiled, Alice had chosen something that I would be okay wearing. When I took off my clothes I was a little embarrassed. They were covered in sweat and torn in some places. I made my way over to the shower, nearly falling on my face in the process.
'Great,' I thought frowning, 'Even as a vampire I'm clumsy…'
I sighed and turned on the shower and stepped in. I scrubbed my head with shampoo and conditioner. Then, even though I didn't need to, I washed myself with body wash. I stepped out and dried myself with a towel.
My shirt was black with what looked like maroon splatters around the bottom and a clothe that was the same shade of red and wrapped around then tied in the back. I also had a black skirt that had maroon crosses around it, was a few inches above knees but was still long enough.
I moved out of the bathroom and found shoes by the door, well, boots. They were black that laced up and were three inches past my ankles. I stared at what she chose for me.
"What the hell Alice?" I asked her in an average talking voice from Edward's room knowing she could hear me, "Do you think I'm going emo or something?"
The only response was her tinkling laughter from downstairs; I rolled my eyes and turned to the mirror. My eyes widened to what I saw. Was that seriously me?
The girl had a deathly pale, flawless, and perfect face. Her frame was smaller then it used to be and she seemed soft though she was supposed to be rock hard, she also had long, curly dark brown hair. Then I came to the girl's eyes and my jaw dropped open. She had pink eyes. They were a little lighter then hot pink and had large black pupils that made her more beautiful.
How the hell did Edward not notice that!?
I sucked in a sharp breath and began chewing on my bottom lip, and then I let out a yelp of pain and looked closer to see why it hurt so badly. I had sharp teeth that looked like they belonged to a cat.
"Bella, are you okay?" I heard Edward's worried voice, damnit, he heard that cry.
"I'm fine, I just thought I saw a mouse and it scared me." I lied.
There was a silence, "A mouse scared you?" He asked incredulously.
"Shut up." I growled and he dropped it.
I turned back to the mirror and then my head began to itch intensely, I scratched hard and then felt a ticklish feeling coming out of two parts of my scalp. Then the ticklish feeling came from between my lower back and bottom. I, in no way, scratched there, what if someone came in? Awkward.
I sighed and closed my eyes, what the hell was happening? Did everyone go through this? I opened my eyes and when I saw myself I screamed.
I had a pair of black, furry, cat ears sticking out of my head. I also had a black cat tail coming out from under my skirt.
I heard everyone jump up and begin to run to the bedroom, I flung myself on the bed under the covers so they couldn't see my tail and then brang up my hands to cover my cat ears, screaming once again because my human ears were gone, and then closed my eyes.
I heard them burst into the room, "Bella!?" Alice said obviously scared, she probably saw my position then, "Umm, Bella? What are you doing?" She asked.
"Nothing…" I murmured, and she sighed.
"Open your eyes Bella."
She sighed and I could hear Edward now, "Bella, are you embarrassed about your eyes? I saw them remember? They're red like they should be." Red? There pink, hun.
I just shook my head and sighed, "Whatever." I muttered and opened my eyes.
Everyone was staring at me with curiosity a crossed there faces, then they saw my eyes their jaws dropped open and disbelief washed over them.
"Your eyes are pink!" Emmett choked out.
Rosalie whacked him in the head, "Nice way to point out the obvious."
Edward frowned, "B-but, you had red eyes this morning…" He said. I shook my head, "Maybe I was in a shadow so you couldn't see." He nodded and then raised an eyebrow.
"Err, Bella? Why, might I ask, are you covering your head?"
"I'm not…you only think I am."
"Bella…" He sighed.
"I'm not! I'm just…stretching?"
"Emmett? Jasper?" Damn him.
Emmett grabbed one of my arms and Jasper grabbed the other, they began to pull hard and I began growling, "NO!" I yelled trying hard to keep my arms in place.
Of course, I'm not that strong, they managed to pull my arms to my sides.
When I saw the Cullen's eyes I thought that they were going to bulge out of their eye sockets. I lowered my head and pulled the blankets over my head.
Suddenly I felt cool arms around me and I looked up to see Edward. "I'm sorry Bella, I shouldn't have just stared like that, but…wow…" He trailed off looking unsure of himself, probably scared to say something that would offend me.
I sighed, "I know it's just…" I bit my lip and then groaned and threw my hands in the air, "I'm a freak!"
He frowned, "Nah, it's cute." He chuckled and kissed me on the cheek. Then I felt a sharp pain from my ears, I snapped my head to see Emmett pulling them. Then to everyone's surprise, I hissed. Like a cat.
Emmett burst out laughing and fell to the floor, "Dude! I pulled them to see if there real and then you hissed! Y-you are a damn cat!" He said still laughing.
Rosalie snickered, "Where's your tail kitty cat?" She mocked. I growled again but Edward's growl was louder. She rolled her eyes, "Come on, how can I help it? Bella's a freakin' cat."
I hissed at her, "You want to see it?" I said narrowing my eyes. Her eyes widened, "You…you actually have one? I was kidding…" She said is disbelief. I rolled my eyes and got out of the bed. Back to the shock.
My tail fell from under my skirt still but the tip of it wad curled slightly so it didn't drag. I cleared my throat to get their attention again.
Carlisle blinked, "Okay, not that this isn't weird at all, but there is one other thing that I'm a little confused about…" He began. Everyone looked at him curiously. "Well, Bella should be able to smell the blood from town and trying to attack."
They looked at me, "Can you smell anything Bella?" Edward asked. I sniffed a bit and shook my head, "Nuh-uh." I shrugged. Alice giggled at my choice of words.
"Interesting…" Carlisle said, "I guess Bella won't have to hunt." He said and Edward grinned like a mad man. He hugged me again, "Wonderful." He said with a sigh of relief.
I laughed and then something bright caught my eye. I turned to see Alice, the sun was hitting her and I stared at the sparkling hidden diamonds in her skin. Edward was asking me a question but I was to entranced in her shiny skin. Then she stepped away.
I shook my head, "Wha, I, what?" I asked confused. "Hmm…" Carlisle said, "Step back into the light Alice." He told her and she nodded.
As soon as she did my focus was only on her. My eyes widened and then before I knew what I was doing I lunged at Alice.
She moved out of the way and I flew out the window. I did a flip in the air and then landed on my feet and hands. I jumped up and brushed dust off me frowning.
Then everyone was around me, "Are you okay?" Edward asked panicked. I nodded, "Yep!" I said brightly, "Alice was just…shiny." I said with a sheepish smile. "I don't really know what happened.
Emmett shook his head, "My god…Edward, my brother, I knew you were miserable for like, a hundred and something years 'n all, but really. Do you have to go and marry and cat?" That made everyone burst out laughing and I made a face. I punched him on the arm, "Shut up." I mumbled.
He grinned and gave me a bear hug, "Aw, come on Bells! You know I love you." He chuckled, "You're my little sister, so I get the rights to make fun of you every once and awhile." He ruffled my hair and I smiled.
Then Alice pushed me into the house, "Alice…what are you doing?" I asked suspiciously. She just giggled, "Be right back!" Then she skipped off and came back with a ball of yarn. I raised an eyebrow, as did everyone else
She grinned and then sat crossed legged on the floor. She rolled the yarn around and a little and then I soon began to watch everything it did. If it rolled to far I would get tense and feel the urge to run after it.
She snickered and swatted it away; I took off after it and then pounced while it was still rolling. I grinned and rolled it back and forth between my hands.
Everyone laughed in amusement, normally I would have been completely embarrassed, but I was having a lot of fun. I looked up and tilted my head a bit.
Emmett grinned, "Bella, I'm gonna start calling you Kat!" He laughed.
Edward looked at him in disbelief, "You're going to call my fiancée Cat?"
"Not cat silly Edward. Kat. You know K-A-T." He spelled it out, "Humans name there kids that sometimes, I recall seeing a little girl at the park one day and the mother called her Kat." He rambled on.
I rolled my eyes and everyone chuckled. Edward came up to me and picked me up in his arms. I stretched, yes, like a cat, and yawned suddenly very tired. I closed my eyes, "She can sleep…" Esme said softly.
I didn't know how or why, but there was a rumbling in my chest and I guessed it was purring. Everyone else must have thought that to because they burst out laughing, "She purrs!" Jasper laughed. I hissed and then snuggled into Edward's chest and began purring again
"Goodnight my Bella Kitty Kat." He chuckled and kissed my forehead before I drifted off to sleep.
