The Blind Earthbender
It had been two weeks since my return to Forks from the hospital. Since then the only people I have come in contact with were Edward, Alice, Charlie and Carlisle. Alice had told me that the rest of the family was eagerly awaiting my return. I bet they were, no doubt they were more eager to question me. Up until three weeks or so ago, only Edward had known of my "condition". He had since that day in the meadow.
It really wasn't much of a secret, but seeing as people were extremely unobservant, it went unnoticed. I was blind. Okay, well not exactly completely blind. I was able to see using the vibrations that I was able to pick up with my feet. Overtime, I became attuned with the earth that I was able to shift the element around me. I was also (for some bizarre reason) still able to see people's eyes. Can you imagine? The only things you are able to see in the darkness were a bunch of pairs of eyes. It frightened me when I was younger, but I got used to it eventually. Edward had asked me that day in the meadow, how I was able to tell that his eyes had changed colors. I never forget a pair of eyes.
But now the entire Cullen family knew I was an earthbender. They had seen in me the video trying my hardest to defend myself against James. I was holding my own at first, but no matter how many boulders I shot at him; he was still too fast.
I would have to tell them. I really didn't bother me that they knew; after all they were my family too. I just don't want to be treated any differently because of my handicap.
We were in Edward's car driving to his house. We sat in silence most of the way there when finally Edward spoke, "You don't have to do this, you know."
I turned my head to look at him and said, "Yes I do. It's alright, though. I want to." I did want to; it would be nice to have other people know my secret. Besides I was one day "really" going to become a member of the Cullen family (no matter how much Edward objected), it was best not to have any secrets. I would answer all of their questions.
We had finally arrived to his house. He cut the engine then he was instantly at my door opening it and helping me out of the car since my leg was still broken. Alice was already waiting for us outside.
"Everyone is inside waiting in the living room," she said.
"I know," said Edward.
I took a deep breath and said, "Let's get this over with."
