Hey. Sorry about not updating my other story. I'm having a writer's block and I don't know anyway to continue it from there. Don't worry! I know where the name you guys contributed is supposed to go but I just don't know how to continue. So while I think of a way to continue the story without disappointing you guys, I'm writing this one! If you think that it sucks or that the idea isn't a good one, please do tell me. I won't bite!
Disclaimer: If I own twilight, then I own the world! Muahahahaha... Unfortunately for me, I don't own the world, so I don't own Twilight either.
I looked out the window, watching the trees pass by quickly while clutching my teddy, Mr. Smackeroo, to my chest. I bounced in my chair, giddily. My parents told me earlier this morning they were bringing me somewhere special for my birthday. I can't wait!
"Mommy? Where are we going?" I asked innocently from the back seat though I knew she was taking me to the zoo. You see, today is my 5th birthday. I've always wanted to go to the zoo and see all the animals.
"It's a surprise, darling" she said sweetly as she turned around to face me. She looked at me with loving eyes and I pouted. She nodded a 'no' but continued to look at me with the same loving expression.
"Daddyyy, will you tell me where we're going," I whined.
"Ha ha. Well," he held out the 'well' for a long time, knowing I couldn't stand surprises. He looked at me and I gave him the best pout I could muster up. I must have looked silly trying so hard because I could see it in daddy's expression. He let out a chuckle and turned back towards the road, "Okay, then. We're going to the zoo. We know you've always wanted to go there, so we're bringing you there for your birthday" he said, taking his eyes of the road momentarily to look at me as well.
I squealed happily in my seat. Kicking my feet, which were hanging straight up due to the fact that I was short, up and down.
"I can't believe our little girl is all grown up! Soon she'll be moving out and living on her own," daddy said with a grin.
This idea upset me. I didn't like talk about leaving my parents. I love my parents. I would never even dream of leaving them. With a huff, I crossed my arms and exclaimed "Daddy, I'm not allgrown up! I don't wanna grow up. I wanna stay here with you and mommy!"
My parents just chuckled as they turned to face the road once again. Then, everything went by too fast.
As soon as my parents towards the front of the car, another car slammed into ours. Everything after was a blur. The next thing I knew, it was dark and the car was upside down.
"Mommy?" I waited for a reply by none came, "Daddy?" I called, but still no one answered. I tried to unbuckle my seat belt when I heard my mother let out soft groan. I quickly undid the clasp and crawled towards my mom's seat.
"Mommy!" I said, tears spilling onto my cheeks.
"Baby?" my Mom asked confusedly. I saw that my dad was unmoving beside her. He had blood on his head. I then turned to my mom again and found that she too was covered in blood.
I gave my mom a hug around her neck, not caring about the blood that covered her skin. I held her tightly. I pulled away and looked into her eyes. She pushed away the curtain of hair covering my face and smiled.
"I love you, Bella. Please, be safe for me. Take care of yourself," I started bawling even louder and hugged her again. When I pulled away, she looked like daddy. Unmoving and lifeless.
I then noticed a glow from the distance. I crawled towards the window hoping that it was someone who would rescue us, but I was wrong. It was fire. The fire was heading towards us. I tried to open the door but it wouldn't budge. I pushed as hard as I could but to no avail. I turned towards my last resort.
"Help!" I screamed, pounding my fists at the window. i continued screaming and banging at the window for some time. I soon gave up all hope, fell backwards and cried. I could feel the smoke overpowering me making it hard to think. The last thing I remember was headlight flying from a direction. And people shouting. Then, everything went black.
"Is she going to be okay?" a woman asked.
"Yes, she is going to be fine," a male replied.
There was a faint beeping in the background. My eyes fluttered open and saw a white light above me.
"Am I in heaven?" I asked.
"No, sweetie," replied a woman. She had brown hair like mine only slightly wavier. She was really pretty. "You're in the hospital. You got into an accident.
I let out a small moan and shifted my body slight. I then realized that there was a needle in my right arm. I tried to pull it out but a hand grabbed mine and stopped me. I looked up and the pretty lady smiled warmly at me. Then, the memory of the car crash came back to me. I started crying uncontrollably. The lady cradled me and let me cry into her chest. It seemed like forever.
When the tears stopped, I looked up to her and asked, "Mommy and daddy left me, didn't they? They went to heaven without me. Daddy told me that I was all grown up and that I would one day leave them but they didn't mention anything about them leaving me,"
The lady looked at me with sad eyes and hugged my in a tight embrace. I hugged her back, needing someone to cuddle with since mommy and daddy aren't here.
She took one finger and tilted my head upwards. "I'm Susan. You might not remember me but I took care of you when you were really young. Your mom and I were close friends,"
Were, she said. I hugged her again, never wanting to let go. She nuzzled her face into my hair and kissed it.
"Would you like to stay with me?" she asked. I nodded yes, still clutching her close to me. I felt her smile at my response.
Days later, when I was declared healthy enough to leave the hospital, I followed Susan into her car.
She smiled warmly at me. Susan never left my side in the hospital. She was always there. She would snuggle next to me at night and hold me tightly while I felt asleep in her arms. She would always try to cheer me up, which I must say, she did rather well. She would always find a way to make me laugh. I loved her.
I held her hand as we walked to the car park while clutching Mr. Smackeroo in my other. She buckled me in the passenger seat beside her and headed towards hers and strapped herself in. She put in the keys and the engine roared to life.
"We're going to your old house for a bit first. We need to pick up some of your clothes and toys," she said as she parked the car in the driveway of the house I once lived in with my mommy and daddy, "It's fine if you don't want to come in with me."
I shook my head in disapproval and tried my best to unbuckle myself from the safety straps. Susan turned off the engine and came over to my side to help me. She carried me into the house. As we entered, I noticed it looked exactly the same as it did the morning of the accident. The morning of...
"Bella? Which toys would you like to bring along?" Susan called from my room. I ran up the steps and took out some of my favourite stuffed animals and stuffed them into the bag. After Susan had taken all my clothes, we headed out the door. I stopped and turned around, allowing myself one last look at the house. I could feel the water collecting in my eyes. I quickly wiped them away before they could spill.
I turned around and grabbed Susan's hand. She buckled me into the passenger seat again and went to the back of the car to load my things. As she pulled out of the driveway, I watched as she sped away from the house.
I had fallen asleep in the car on the way to Susan's house. I felt the car come to a stop and shifted my position on the seat, not opening my eyes.
"Wake up, sleepy head," she said, gently stroking my cheeks.
I opened my eyes and saw that we had reached her house. It was simple looking, no grander than ours. I gave a big yawn and stretched my arms as far as they would go. Susan giggled and helped me out of my seat. We made our way inside as she pulled me around and gave me a tour of the house. We then came to a stop in front of a door. She opened it and inside, was a simple room complete with a bed, drawers, a study table and a bathroom.
"This," she said, holding out her hand towards the room, "Is your new room,"
"Thank you!" I squealed. I gave a huge smile and jumped up to hug her. Unfortunately, she was much, much taller than me so the jump did not make much of a difference. She laughed and bent down to hug me.
"I'm going to get your bags downstairs so that you can unpack and set up all your toys to play with later," she said, closing the door as she left me alone in my new room.
As soon as I heard the door close, I ran and jumped onto my new bed, spreading myself as wide as I could. I closed my eyes and thought about mommy and daddy and how much I missed them and how I wished they were here right now.
I stood up and saw a vision of mommy and daddy giving me Mr. Smackeroo for my birthday last year. Tears started running down my cheeks. I remembered Mommy's last words,
Take care of yourself
If only Mommy knew I was staying with Aunt Susan. She would be happy that I was safe with her friend. But I'm sure Mommy and Daddy are watching over me in heaven, just as Aunt Susan is taking care of me here. Everything was going to be alright now.
Little did I know that this was far from the truth.
So, was it crappy? Did you like it??? Please review and tell me what you think. The suspense is killing me. I'm sorry if I made any mistakes.
