Preface

The book fell from the girl's numb fingers and landed on the ground. It flew open to the preface, having been turned there so often. The girl loved this book, savoring each and every word. Her scent was soaked into the pages from so much recent handling.

Most people remembered the line "When life offers you a dream so far beyond your expectations, it's not reasonable to grieve when it comes to an end." Those words gave them chills running down their spines, as they realized that the heroine was about to die for something she loved. It wasn't those words that gave the girl chills now.

My eyes fell on the line before. "I knew that if I'd never gone to Forks, I wouldn't be facing death now." How ironic. It wasn't me facing death, at least, not now. It was her. I dragged my eyes up from the page and found the girl staring at me.

She babbled on, a look of fear filling her eyes. Her heartbeat picked up speed, entrancing me. Unconsciously, I licked my lips, and she backed away.

Whatever she said made no difference to me. But then she said something that made me stop. My name. She said my name. In the very back of my mind, a voice whispered, "stop, don't".

But the monster had already taken over. This was no longer my decision to make.

I crouched, ready to pounce. I was so very thirsty…


AN: As this is a "Twilight is real" fic, at first there will be a lot of OC characters. I had to make it realistic. But canon characters will be in this fic. And I will not have relationships between them and my OCs. So just be patient if you aren't a huge fan of OCs, and this will really pick up.

Please review!
