Chapter 1: Life at the Campus.
Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight's characters. I just use them for my stories.
Sorry this chapter is short, but it's only the intro. After this the chapters will be longer.
"Izzie! Iz! Isabella!!" I opened my eyes.
"What?" I groaned.
Anna raised an eyebrow. "You had your 'nightmare' again."
I sighed. "Yes, I know."
Even though I was a vampire, I had found a certain state of unconsciousness that looked a lot like sleeping. The only bad thing was that I had the same nightmare that kept returning every time I was 'sleeping'.
"I still don't understand why you would do such thing as sleeping." Anna snorted. "You can't even sleep."
I smiled. "Well, this is close enough. I still hear everything, though. I am constantly aware of everything around me. It's just better this way. I like to keep myself as human as possible."
Anna smiled too. "I know. And I'm glad you let me and the others join you in your non-human-blood diet."
I shrugged. "Why wouldn't I? It's not like I am the one who discovered it."
Anna sighed, and got up from her bed. We were sharing this beautiful room, together with Andrea, the English vampire.
I got up too. "Are you going to hunt?"
"Yes. The thirst is annoying me."
"Yeah, I know what you mean. Though I can control it much better now, I think."
Only a few minutes later we were running through the forest around Yale.
Anna was the only one of the vampires I was comfortable with during the hunt. I never let anyone else around me because I was too afraid to hurt them.
Anna was the first one I met during my trip through Europe. There I met my current friends: Marc from France, Andrea from England, Paolo from Italy and Anna from Holland.
We weren't really a coven, we were more like friends hanging out together. They chose to be with me, I didn't ask them to.
Apperently they liked me.
When I was finished, I looked for Anna. She just came back, walking too fast to be human.
"We have to go back before everyone is on the move to class." I said, and she nodded. Together we ran back, just in time to see Andrea coming back too.
"Hi girls." We smiled back.
"Did you have a good hunt?" She asked. I nodded. "Good. Time to prepare for English class."
Anna groaned. "Ugh. I hate this. Each and every day is exactly the same like all the others! I don't want to spend the rest of my life this way!"
"Trust me, this is better than anything else." I said bitterly. Both girls looked at me, but they didn't say a thing. From the beginning I had asked them to ignore my moodswings.
They didn't ask questions either. They both found out living with me was much easier that way. I didn't want to think about my past. It hurt too much, even now, after 65 years.
I changed into the clothes Andrea picked for me; she was the one who knew the most about fashion, so she always picked our clothes too. I put my hair in a ponytail, and went to our kitchen. There were the others waiting for me. We smiled, and left the room to go to our class.
It was a routine, the way the day passed. Waking up, prepare for class, English, Maths, Biology, lunch time (though we always pretended to be busy, so we hadn't time to eat), Music and History. Then I left for the library, together with Marc, to do my homework. After that we went to one of our rooms to hang out together. When everyone went to bed, we went to go hunting, sometimes we hunted all night. Depended how much fun we had. After that, we waited for the next day to come.
Each and every day was the same, Anna was right about that. But I knew that that was better than traveling, because that reminded me of my past. The things that could have been.
"Iz?" I looked up, surprised.
Marc smiled at me. "Sorry to interrupt your thoughts, but class is finished."
I nodded, but I didn't return his smile. He sighed. "One of your moods again?" I shrugged, and he knew enough. He didn't say a word to me the entire night.
When we were near our room after studying, he held my arm.
"Iz, you know what the others will say. They don't like your moods, and they don't know how to deal with them like I do. So if you want to avoid another fight, you better put on a smile." He said, looking me straight in the eye. His golden eyes never mesmerized me, not the way Edward's did. I shivered, but put on one of my sweetest smiles.
Marc sighed. "They'll see through it, but it's better than nothing." He swung the door open, allowing me inside.
"Izzie!" Andrea and Anna screeched at the same time. I laughed when they both ran to me, and hugged me tightly.
"There are two new vampires at this school, did you know that! I crossed their scent just 15 minutes ago!" Anna said.
I raised my eyebrows. "Well, I guess we'll meet them eventually."
Andrea laughed. "I told you she would say that! Ha ha! Well, can we go shopping tomorrow?"
Anna and I agreed, the boys decided to stay home.
I sighed. Maybe these two new people could bring some excitement in our lives.
I wish I hadn't said that…
So, what did you think?
