Chapter One: Surprises

'Edward there is a surprise at home for you.' Alice said in her thoughts to her brother as he was driving himself and Bella home from an afternoon in Port Angeles. Bella had wanted to go to the bookstore, so he happily obliged her.

"Alice says that there is a surprise waiting for me at home. Do you have an idea what she has up her sleeve?" he asked turning to look at Bella as they turned down the road that lead to the Cullens' long driveway.

Bella shook her head no.

Edward sighed. He hated Alice's surprises – they usually turned out bad for some reason.

He turned into the long driveway and began to make his way towards the Cullen house. As he approached the house, he could hear his family's thoughts – only Jasper, Alice and Esme were home at the moment and all of their thoughts swirled around Edward's surprise.

'He is gonna be so surprised!' Alice thought.

'I can't believe it….' Esme thought.

'It's about time,' Jasper thought.

He pulled into the garage and sighed.

"What?" Bella asked.

"I still can't figure out what is going on. They are blocking their thoughts from me."

Bella laughed. "It's called a surprise," she said smiling. "Come on let's go see what it is!"

He leaned over and kissed her lips softly before getting out of the car. And before Bella knew it, he was standing next to the passenger's side door holding his hand out to her. She smiled and took it, as they walked into the house hand in hand.

"There you are!" Alice yelled from the living room as she ran towards them. "Come on!"

Taken back by his sister's urgency, Edward gave in and let Alice pull him into the living room with Bella in tow. Of course, Jasper and Esme where in there waiting for him along with someone else. Alice let go of his hand and made her way back over to Jasper, who immediately wrapped his arms around her.

As soon as Edward set his eyes on the other person in the room, he stopped dead in his tracks with his eyes fixated on the young woman. Bella stood next to him with a look of confusion on her face. Who was this young woman and why was she having such an effect on Edward? The young woman stood up from the couch, where she had been sitting next to Esme and began to walk towards Edward. Bella looked her over intently. The young woman was taller then Alice, but not by much, maybe a few inches. She had long curly reddish brown hair like Edward and over all was drop dead gorgeous – she could give Rosalie a run for her money. And she was obviously a vampire because of her soft topaz color eyes.

"I've missed you so much!" she said, as she was closer to where they stood.

Edward didn't say anything as he dropped Bella's hand and moved towards the young woman as well. Bella watched in horror as he swept the young woman up in his arms, giving her a bone-crushing hug.

"I've missed you too," she thought she heard Edward whisper.

Immediately Bella felt like she was going to be sick. This had to be some huge mistake. She tried to run from the room, but was stopped by Edward grabbing a hold of her arm.

"Bella?" he asked concerned.

"I've gotta go," she stammered out. "I've just gotta go."

She couldn't bear to look at him. It was all too much. She had no idea that Edward had another love before her. He had always told her that she was the first being that he ever truly loved and couldn't live without. What else had he lied to her about?

She began to hyperventilate.

"Edward give her some room before she has a full panic attack," the young woman said pushing Edward out of the way. "Come on, let's sit down."

The young woman led her over the couch and set her down next to Esme. Bella took a deep breath as Jasper sent her reassuring feelings. She could feel herself calm down. Edward immediately sat down next to her and took a hold of her hand. "Are you ok Bella?"

She nodded.

"Seriously Edward you almost gave the poor girl a heart attack," the young woman said, kneeling down in front of Bella. Edward growled at her from deep within his chest.

The young woman paid no attention to Edward as she picked up one of Bella's hands and squeezed it. "Don't worry he's always been overprotective," she said. "Some things never die even after a century of walking this Earth."

"Who are you?" Bella finally managed to say.

"Elisabeth Catherine Masen Cullen but you can call me Emma. I'm Edward's twin sister."
