Hey Readers! I know this took me forever to publish, and I'm sorry for that. But I have some good news… I got a boyfriend and I got my first kiss! I was in such a good mood that I began writing the next chapter :)

And then something ruined my high…. I was going through all of the nice reviews that you guys posted (Thank you so much by the way) when I came across a-not-so-nice review. It was posted by Desiraes0220, and I was not happy when I read it. But after a while, I thought about what she said. Most of what she said was true, and I didn't even realize it! In the beginning I would be a lazy writer though I thought I had improved but I guess I haven't :( So I'm sorry if my writing hasn't been the best. I think that's all I had to say… Readers, if you have anything you would like to suggest about my story or how I write, then please do, just try to say it as nice as possible. I do take a lot of your suggestions, and the people who do suggest things to me know that I do.

So I hope everyone enjoys this chapter.

Near To You

Alice POV (just for fun)

I will finally get to talk to her! I was doing a little happy dance in my mind when Bella told me I could talk with her.

"Calm down Ali," Jasper soothed, "She needs some space first remember?"

I sighed and lowered my head. Who knew how long that would take…

Jasper tilted my chin up gently and kissed my lips. I pulled away and smiled at my husband. My southern gentleman.

"C'mon, let's go back to our room," Jasper winked just as I felt a wave of lust hit me.

Grinning, I jumped up and wrapped my legs around his waist. His eyes clouded over and he growled as I ground against his obvious arousal.

It didn't take us long to get to our room.

Miranda POV

Who does that bitch think she is?! First she attacks me, and then turns my Eddie against me! Today is just not going well.

Mumbling even more profanities, I stalked off down the hallway and outside for some fresh air.

"She's going to get it some day, and I just wish- Oof!" I wasn't paying much attention and had walked straight into some other vampire.

"Son of a bi-!" a smooth, masculine voice shouted.

I looked up, snarling, "What the hell is your pro-" the words died on my lips as my gaze fell on the god before me.

He chuckled and held out his hand to me, "Sorry, I wasn't looking where I was going,"

"N-no p-pr-problem," I stuttered. I mentally smacked myself on the head.

Get a hold of yourself! You're making yourself look like an idiot!

I placed my hand in his and immediately felt a spark. I gasped and his eyes widened slightly.

He pulled me up from the ground but still held on.

"I'm Alan, and you are?"

"Miranda," I murmured.

"That's a pretty name," he smiled, "listen, I would love to get to know you a little better, what do you say to a walk?"

"I would love that," I said.

Bella POV

My head was resting on Felix's chest. His hands were gently stroking my back, calming me even further. I sighed and kissed his chest, and began running my fingers through his thick hair, slightly scratching his scalp.

He hummed in pleasure and kissed my lips softly.

"That was… amazing." He murmured against my lips.

"I know," I whispered, "I love you Felix,"

He smiled, "I love you to, my beautiful Bella,"

We stayed that way for a few more minutes before I got an idea.

"Hey Felix, can we go swimming?" I asked with my big puppy-dog eyes.

He chuckled lightly, "Of course,"

I laughed and pecked his lips before leaping off the bed. I ran into the living room in search of our suitcases, then digging through the many clothes for my bathing suit.

I pulled out my white Victoria Secret two-piece and ran to the bathroom to get changed.

I could hear Felix rummaging through the suitcases in the other room, and then heading outside. I quickly pulled on my bathing suit, grabbed my sun hat and towel and followed him out.

I saw him lay out his towel on the warm sand before walking into the ocean. He dove under the surface before resurfacing a few seconds later, his already sparkling skin, shining with water droplets. I snapped my jaw shut and wiped my chin, hoping that no venom had leaked out during my ogling.

I walked slowly to the waves, wanting to enjoy the feel of the soft sand on my feet. Felix turned my way and smiled brightly. He eagerly motioned me to join him in the water.

"C'mon Bella! Jump in!" he laughed. He is such a child sometimes…. But I loved it. It makes Felix, Felix.

I giggled and dove into the waves. I open my eyes underwater and take in my surroundings. It was so beautiful. Felix swims to me and wraps his arms around my waist, pulling me up to the surface with him.

I turn to him, smiling. He catches me off guard when his lips crash onto mine. I moan and wrap my arms around his neck, pulling him closer. He smiles into the kiss and pulls away.

"Ti amo tanto," he whispers to me softly. I smile and rest my hands on his chest.

"I love you too" I murmur kissing his lips, "Forever."

Victoria POV

I look down at my prey from the small building I have climbed up. He glances around nervously and I smile.

He's scared

It's late at night and no one is walking the streets, except for him. It's the perfect time to attack.

I leap down from the building landing silently behind the man. He suddenly stops and whirls around.

Up close I can see how attractive he is with his pale blonde hair, strong jaw and baby blue eyes. He is very muscular and tall even though he looks young. He reminds me of James.

I smile slowly, increasing his fear ten fold. He opens his mouth to scream and at that moment I sink my teeth into the skin of his neck.

He slumps in my hold and with much effort I pull my mouth away from his neck. I want to keep this one.

I swing him up in my arms and take off running to the warehouse that I have made my hideout.

I lay him gently on the ground, waiting for him to begin his cries of pain…. But they don't come. Through the three days of his transformation, he didn't make a sound.

Hmmm he's a strong one… Perfect

I can hear his heartbeat increase and I look towards him. His heart suddenly stops and I flash to his side.

His eyes shoot open and he's standing in an instant, looking around wildly.

"Shh it's ok," I hushed, "I'm Victoria."

"Where am I? What happened?" he said.

"You'll know soon enough, but let's start off with your name" I soothed.

"Riley," he said, "My name is Riley,"

"Well Riley," I purred, "I have big plans for you,"

Hope you all liked this chapter! Sorry it was so short and had a lot of different POV's, but I was having writers block again. Oh and I've been wanting to make a banner for this story but I don't have the stuff to do it, so if any of you would be up to the job then PM me, thanks! Please review
