This is my first story so go easy when you're rating it

I just read Twilight and I LOVED it! This is my first thing that I've ever written for Twilight (obviously), so don't be too upset if it doesn't fit your 'standards'. Thanx! –peace

By the way, I found an awesome song that matches Edward and Bella… well mostly Edward. It's "The Sharpest Lives" by My Chemical Romance. Check it out if you haven't heard it yet! :D


Give me a shot to remember
And you can take all the pain away from me
A kiss and I will surrender
The sharpest lives are the deadliest to lead
A light to burn all the empires
So bright the sun is ashamed to rise and be
In love with all of these vampires
So you can leave like the sane abandoned me


I threw her bag against the wall in frustration. I looked dangerously at the mirror hanging on my wall, but kept myself from smashing it as I wanted to so badly. I needed to get out, and the easiest way to do that was to take a hike, which I did when I was frustrated. My only problem was that it was hunting season. I didn't care much, though. I had gone hiking dozens of times alone during hunting season, so it didn't bother me. I quickly changed into my black baggy pants and an army green tee-shirt. It was getting later in the day, and my mom and dad- well, foster mom and dad- would be home soon. And somehow I had the feeling that they wouldn't be too happy about my disappearance for the day, not that they would have noticed much; dad was usually drunk or high and the same went for mom.

I didn't want to start another argument again; all that did was make the blows harder, so I laced up my boots quickly and hid my pocket knife inside of my right boot as I usually did. I grabbed my grey jacket on the way and made my way out of town, toward the woods.

I started on the usual trail I took; it was a deer trail, so no one would bother looking for me there. Surprisingly it wasn't raining yet, though it had been overcast all day. I walked quickly and silently, not really heading anywhere in particular. I heard a snap of a twig and swiveled around quickly to see nothing, so I continued my brisk walk through the woods. I heard another snap and then something falling from a tree. Then there was a clicking noise. Realization sunk in when I remembered it was hunting season. I slowly turned my head slightly to the right to see a buck standing there, feeding on the fresh spring grass.

My eyes widened in shock as I heard a loud bang, and then there was a sharp pain in my right shoulder. I knew I had been shot. I dropped slowly to the damp ground in a mute silence and rolled down a small bank. I lay there, waiting to die. I heard the crunch of dead leaves being stepped on and thought I was imagining things, but then I felt a stone cold hand on my neck, as if to feel for a pulse.

I opened my eyes painfully and felt the cold fingers on my skin once more, but this time they were on my arm. I realized there were two people there once I heard a feminine voice and a male voice speaking. They seemed to be arguing over something. I heard the male sigh and take a step closer to me.

He picked my left arm up off the ground and crouched down beside me. He seemed to be speaking to me. I could now see his face clearly. He was beautiful, for lack of a better word. His face looked sculpted and he looked to be about twenty years old. His skin was very pale and his eyes were a honey-gold color. There were dark circles under his eyes, but he still looked like he was carved out of marble by one of the great artists.

"Do you wish to live?" he asked in a melodic voice. I thought for a moment and then nodded. He sighed again. "I can help you. It will hurt you, but you will not die if I do so." I nodded slowly. His eyes held a pain that I could not comprehend until I felt it. He sunk his teeth into my arm. I yelped at the sudden pain and feeling that my arm was on fire. I clenched my jaw and fists. The fire spread over my body, though I did not scream. I felt my body being lifted into the air as the man picked me up and began walking quickly, followed by the woman. My eyelids began drooping, I guess from loss of blood, and I lost consciousness.

Sorry it's so short! I'll update soon I promise! Tell me how it is! REVIEW! :D
