A/N: I worked hard on this so I hope that you like it! Review!
Today was just another boring day. Carlisle and Esme were out hunting, Rosalie and Alice were planning an all girls shopping spree, Edward was in his room playing the piano he set up there and I was playing video games with Emmett. As usual, I was whooping his ass in the game Speed Racer 2000 and Emmett was complaining the whole time. Of course, the only reason I was winning because I kept distracting him with different emotions.
"That's so not fair! You're cheating!" he complained…again.
"What makes you think that?" I asked in a mocking voice. Emmett just glared at me.
"Re-match?" I challenged
"You're on!" he bellowed. I was about to win yet again until I heard Alice calling me from upstairs.
"Ha! I won!" yelled Emmett, pumping his fist into the air. I just rolled my eyes and headed upstairs. I came into our room to see that Rosalie was gone and that Alice seemed really worried. Her emotions were rolling off of her in waves and I couldn't help but start worrying too.
"What's wrong?" I asked cautiously.
"A girl named Bella and her parents are going to be in a car crash. Bella survives but then a vampire will come along and you'll know what will happen if we don't help her. I can't just have a vision like this for no reason! She must be important," explained Alice in a rush. I just stared at her with my jaw dropped.
"You go and help her and bring her here. I'll get this room tidy for her and I'll go but some food for her too," I said when I finally regained my voice. Alice left the room at once leaving me thoroughly confused. In a matter of minutes, Our room was spotless and our kitchen was stocked with human food. Emmett wouldn't quit asking me what was going on.
"It's a surprise," I kept saying. After half an hour, Alice finally returned with a girl in her hands. She had a pale complexion and chestnut colored hair. Alice brought her to our room after explaining to Emmett what happened.
"How old do you think she is?" I asked, looking for a way to break the uncomfortable silence
"She looks about 13," replied Alice. The girl seemed unconscious and Alice said that she wouldn't wake up anytime soon so she left for her shopping spree with Rosalie. After god only knows how long, The little girl, Bella, woke up.
"Bella!" was the last thing I heard before I drifted in to the world of unconsciousness.
I woke up to the sound of a piano playing Claire De Lune. That song always kept me calm. I was lying on a cream couch with a floral print in a huge house. Hmmm…no bed? That's odd. There was a door, a really big window on the other side of the room, a flat screen TV and a giant closet. Who needed that much clothing? I looked around and came across a pair of golden eyes. I rubbed my eyes to see if I was dreaming. I looked around and saw the same pair of curious eyes. I blushed a bright red when I noticed that the person was staring straight at me. He had blond hair and was sitting on the other side of the room. I wondered why that was. In a blink of an eye he was right beside me.
"You're scared," he said. He didn't say it like a question, just as a matter of factly. Now that he mentioned it, he was right. I was scared.
"Who are you?" I asked.
"Who are you?" he challenged.
"Hey! I asked first and you're the one who brought me here in the first place!" I retorted
"Actually my girlfriend brought you here and my name is Jasper. Nice to meet you." He said as he extended his hand for a handshake. I just stared at it not knowing what to say until eventually he let it go.
"What's your name?" he asked me.
"Bella," I replied with out thinking.
"You're scared," repeated Jasper looking away. Well…could you blame me? I was in house full of strangers. My parents were driving me home from Angela's house, and then… I couldn't remember the rest.
"Where am I and where are my parents?" I asked, terrified of the answer.
"I'm sorry. I'm so, so sorry," he began, "You're parents died in a car accident. Luckily my girlfriend Alice was there to help you."
I didn't know if I were to yell at him or if I were to break down crying so I stared blankly at him. They're gone…they're actually gone. We sat in silence for only god knows how long. I must have looked bored because after a while, Jasper broke the silence.
"Do you want to meet the rest of the family?" he asked
"like I have any thing better to do." I muttered incoherently. He must have heard me because he got up with a huge grin on his face.
"Don't worry, they're nice. You'll like them a lot," he said cheerily. He led me down a long corridor to a staircase. On the ceiling above us was a beautiful chandelier. Jasper led me down the stairs while I was concentrating on not falling, but as usual, I tripped on the last step and fell flat on my face. I heard booming laughter echo off the walls behind me. I felt my cheeks getting hot. Why did I have to blush so much? I got up and turned around to see Jasper and this tall, muscular guy laughing so hard that I might have actually had to call ambulance. In the end, I had to laugh too. They had such cheerful vibes.
"Nice one Bella," said Jasper in between snickers. I was still blushing an unattractive red by the time they stopped laughing.
"Hi! My name is Emmett. You give a great first impression," chortled the tall, muscular teenager beside Emmett. Just then, two girls came in through the door. One of them had jet black hair with a petite figure while the other girl was a shockingly beautiful Blondie. They were each holding about fifty shopping bags!
"I see you're finally awake," said the girl with the jet black hair, a smirk playing on her lips. Her voice shocked me…it sounded like wind chimes.
"How long have I been asleep?" I asked blushing harder.
"Let's just say that you've been knocked out for quite a while," she said grinning.
"You must be Alice. I'm Bella," I said. I turned to the blond and said, "And you are…"
"Rosalie," She spat, glaring at me.
"Well you need an attitude check," I muttered under my breath. Emmett and Jasper must have heard me because they burst out laughing. Rosalie glared at Emmett and Jasper and asked, "What is she doing here?"
"Her parents died in a car accident so I brought her here," replied Alice. I winced at the thought of my parents.
"Hmph," huffed Rosalie as she stormed off the stairs. I wondered why she hated me so much. I looked around and something caught my attention. Why were all their eyes gold? They didn't seem to be related… Suddenly, the music of the piano playing Claire de Lune stopped. A teenager that looked about the age of 17 came down the stairs. Then something else hit me. Every one in this house was so beautiful, except me of course. I turned to Alice and saw that her eye color darkened a little.
"Who's he?" I asked
"Oh…that's just Edward," answered Alice in a calm tone. All their names seemed so old fashioned… I turned around and jumped a little when I saw that Edward was right there. I felt my cheeks getting hot when I realized that he was staring at me. How did he get here so fast, why is he staring at me like that and WHY is my heart beating at 100 times per second? I just couldn't find a logical explanation.
"H-Hi… I-I'm Bella," I stuttered. UGH! Why am I acting this way?!
"Oh! Hello. What brings you here?" he asked, his eyes never leaving me.
"Well, um…you see, um…well," I started, grimacing at the thought of my parents.
"Her parents just died in a car accident. She survived but now she has nowhere else to go," cut in Jasper, obviously feeling my discomfort. Edward was listening to Jasper but his eyes never left me. I blushed under his scrutiny.
"I see," was all he said. I see? I SEE?! My parents died in a car accident and all he says is I SEE! Oh well…he must be lost for words. Just then, my stomach growled.
I loved playing the piano. It was the only time I could get away from what Esme called my "deep depression." Playing the piano and when I would go hunting are the only times where I could just be me. A monster that is damned to hell. I hated having to pretend to be something that I am not. I stopped playing when I saw one of Alice's visions in her head.
A girl about the age of thirteen is leaving her friend's house. Her friend yells out, "Bye Bella!" while the girl I assumed was Bella yelled out, "Bye Angela!" After five minutes of driving home with her parents, another car comes out of nowhere and crashes into theirs. Only Bella survives. Then a tall, pale vampire with pitch black eyes rimmed with red come along. The vampire lunges for the poor defenseless Bella.
End of vision.
Wow. That was weird. Why would Alice have a vision like that? Alice's thoughts came screaming at me.
I need to go help her Edward. I wouldn't have a vision like that for no reason. I have a feeling that she's important.
Did Alice know how risky it would be to let this human, Bella, into our house? I didn't argue with her though. If there's one thing I've learned, it's that you should never bet against Alice. I continued to play my piano. Hmm…Bella. She looked angelic in the vision. There seemed to be some thing special about her…
About a half hour later, I heard the steady heart beat of a human. Bella had arrived. When I started to play "Claire de Lune" by Debussy. Her heart beat accelerated. She must have woken up. I heard her and Jasper head down the stairs which followed by a thud and the sound of Emmett's and Jasper's laughter. I chuckled. Apparently she had fallen flat on her face. I heard her being introduced so I headed down the stairs. The first thing that hit me was her scent! It smelled so good. Like freesia. I felt my eyes darken instinctively. When Bella's gaze fell on me, she turned to Alice and asked,
"Oh… that's just Edward," replied Alice. I was curious to hear what Bella was thinking so I tried listening in. I heard nothing. Just silence. I tried listening harder yet I came up with squat. Utter and complete silence. I wondered why that was happening. This has never happened before…
"H-Hi I-I'm Bella," stuttered Bella pulling me from my thoughts.
"Oh…hello. What brings you here?" I asked already knowing the answer.
"Well, um…you see, um…well," she started uncomfortably. Jasper, feeling her uncomfort answered for her. My eyes never left Bella as Jasper spoke. Why couldn't I read her thoughts? This was starting to scare me. I would ask Carlisle for a theory when he came back from his hunting trip with Esme. When Jasper finished speaking I mumbled,
"I see." Bella seemed to blush under my scrutiny so I looked away and heard her stomach growl. Jasper and Emmett burst out laughing. Alice and I chuckled as Bella blushed when she realized we had heard her stomach growl.
"Are you hungry?" I asked.
"Um… kind of," replied Bella. I lead her towards the kitchen and sat her down at the dining table. I headed towards the newly stocked fridge and took out some bread, butter and milk. I toasted her bread, buttered it and poured her a glass of milk in a matter of seconds.
"Thank you," said Bella when I handed her food.
"No problem," I answered. I watched Bella eat and after a while she asked,
"Aren't you hungry?"
"No…I already ate," I lied smiling at my inside joke. When Bella finished eating I offered to wash her dishes though she refused and washed it on her own. When she was finished, I asked if she was tired.
"No…" she replied yawning. I heard her heart skip a beat when I smiled and said.
"I think it's time for us to go to sleep."
