Under My Skin- A Twilight Fan fiction
Isabella used to have it all. People envied her. People pretended to like her just to be close to something so special. Her life fell down the drain all on one night. Thing were never the same again. Forced to move with her father, Charlie, to a town where limousines and designer items were hard to come by, Bella attempts to make the best of it. Depressed, Bella resorts to something she quit long ago. It doesn't seem to matter that a mysterious someone looks her way. He's penetrating, and unreal. When things start to get out of hand, Bella is forced to make a choice - but that's not the only thing. What happens when the one she comes to love finds out her true secret? And what happens when he has a secret of his own?
My name was Bella. Isabella to anyone who thought they knew me. I hated it, but the crowd seemed to dawn with the opposite effect.
My whole life I have been surrounded by lime light. It was something now, I had grown used to. It was like to some families, the constant church going since birth or daily rituals. And like most ongoing-rituals, it grows old.
My shoes were sequined, perfect, and silver. My dress was backless, and also sequined to match. It was floor- length, and for any accident prone person, its something you knew was a death wish.
I felt myself take an intake of breath. Here it comes, I thought. With all this practice I should've been used to it by now.
"Isabella, tell us, how does it feel to be the first girl of your kind to make it this far?"
"Isabella, what is it really like under your skin?"
"Isabella, how did you decide that you wanted to be what you are now?"
The questions kept coming. That was when I heard it. The earsplitting bang- fireworks it sounded like. I couldn't tell where the sound came from. I walked to my limousine, crawled in –exhausted- and pulled away from the party.
10 minutes later I came to my home. I now knew where that sound I heard before came from. My entire house was awake into flames. There were flashing lights coming from not only the fire trucks but the ambulance too.
Little did I know that my life was about to come to an end.
But little did I also know that it was just about to begin.
