Okay, this is me being bored and researching mythological creatures!

I DO NOT OWN TWILIGHT! Even if I want to own Jazzy!

Chapter 1

In Norse myths, there are women called Valkyries. They choose men who are worthy and take them to the island of Valhalla to prepare for the final battle. They are goddesses, very rarely reborn though it does happen on occasion. What humans do not understand is that they are still around, blending in until the time comes.

"Isabella Swan, please tell us about yourself."

Sure, my name is really Mist and I am a Valkyrie. Yah, that rolls off the tongue, doesn't it?

"Um, I prefer Bella," I quietly said. "I'm Chief Swan's daughter if you didn't already know that. And I love mythology."

I guess I should explain everything. See, I may have been reborn, but I remember everything from my past life. In fact, I was killed because I was trying to help a friend of mine escape to freedom. I was to take his soul, but he didn't technically die like we wanted. He turned into someone I had ended up falling in love with.

I truly do not know how humans put up with school for so long. By the end of my first class, I was itching to leave. However, when lunch came around and I was ready to skip the rest of the day, I gave in and decided to stay the rest of the day. I mean, the father I had been reborn to would be furious about my skipping school.

As I walked into the cafeteria, I sensed the souls all around me. I was anxious to be able to find peace from all these souls calling out to me. I sat with some students I had met in classes as I scanned the giant room. I felt a familiar soul and my eyes widened as I saw him sitting across the cafeteria. He was talking to a little pixie girl, who was like him.

"Bella?" the girl I had found out was Jessica asked. "Ah, got your eyes on a prize?"

"Who are they?" I muttered.

"The big one, the red-head, and the short girl are Emmett, Edward, and Alice Cullen. The two blonds are Jasper and Rosalie Hale. They're all adopted and they're together. Like Emmett and Rosalie and Jasper and Alice." The pit in my stomach fell. "Edward Cullen doesn't date. Apparently none of the girls here are good enough for him."

I shook my head, trying to clear it. "Cullen," I quietly repeated to myself. "That name sounds familiar. Where have I heard it from?"

Then it clicked. Carlisle Cullen, the pastor's young son I had met when I was in London. He had been one that my sister was to collect. I had gone with to watch, only to watch him be changed instead. Vampires were a nuisance when it came to collecting souls. However, this one was different. I had become close to him and helped to show him that he didn't have to kill humans.

"Bella?" I looked up at Angela, a shy and quiet girl. "Jasper Hale is staring at you."

I glanced over at him with a glare. "Mist," he muttered, motioning towards the door.

I stood up. "I'll be back," I promised as I walked out to the hallway. He came out moments later. "What do you want?"

"You never came." I didn't say anything. "You swore that you would catch up to us."

"I told you that I would do whatever it took to keep that life away from you," I stated. "I sacrificed myself for you to get out of there safely."

"Mist..." He touched my cheek. I closed my eyes as a small smile spread across my lips. "I never wanted you to sacrifice yourself for me."

The bell rang. "I have to go," I quietly said. "I'm sorry for interfering in your life."

"Mist, you're not-"

"I have to go."

I walked away as a tear escaped and slid down my cheek. He was always the one I wanted and he always seemed to be out of reach. Perhaps our kind is not meant to love, perhaps we are only to watch and suffer.

PLEASE review, guys! I need to know if anyone likes it! Besides, Reviews give me inspiration to write more!
