Changing Stars:

"They believed us." Aro laughed in his deep manor.

"By pure luck. I still do not trust them. That creature they have possess does not sit well with me." Caius shared his opinion with the assembled group of leaders.

Aro, Caius, and Marcus, were discussing the previous event with the Cullen family, or so they called themselves. They had somehow created a half-human and half-vampire child, very rare to our world.

I stood just outside of the meeting place and tried to keep quiet, catching most of their conversation.

"Elle, dear, please come in." Aro's voice rung out.

I stepped around the corner and curtsied cautiously. "Yes, Master?"

"I have a solution, brothers." He turned to the other two. "Why not we send Elle to observe them."

"By that you mean, spy on them, correct?" Caius didn't take his eyes off of me.

"Basically. She will live with them. We will give her a plausible story to go by, and she will become part of their life." He explained.

"She would have to pick up their diet." Marcus spoke for the first time.

"Do you accept, dear?" Aro turned to me with soft eyes.

"Certainly, Master, anything to please you." I dipped my head.

"Then it's settled. Tomorrow we will prepare your story and I will conceal this plot in a far corner of your head. One of theirs has my same ability, but far greater. But I believe, my dear, your gift will outshine all of theirs." He smiled evilly.

"Perfect, Master." I exposed my sharp, glistening teeth.

"But all of that for tomorrow. Tonight...we feast." He looked over his shoulder at the door, which from behind we could all hear the voices of an innocent group of tourists making their way into the building.

"Excellent." I walked out with them.
