Bella's p.o.v.

After I woke up I practically ran out of my room. This morning my mother and Phil were teaching me how to allure prey. I They say because of my beauty it outta be easy for me to snag a defenseless human. Whenever they mentioned my looks, I always blushed. I wasn't THAT pretty.

"Good morning Phil!" I greeted him reaching the living room.

"Hello Bella, ready to go?"

I nodded enthusiastically.

"Ok, Renee will be back in a few minutes, we'll leave then."

Oh hurry up mother! I thought.

"Did you enjoy your sleep?" Phil asked.

I rolled my eyes.

"Just because YOU don't sleep doesn't mean I have to fill you in on every detail of mine."

Let me explain. Hi, I'm Bella Swan. I'm permanently 18 now, finally reaching my 'adult stage'. I stopped growing almost a year ago. I'm a half-breed in case you haven't figured it out. My mother was 20 and human when she got pregnant with me. My father Charlie, was 22 and a vampire. So I'm half and half. I'm really strong and fast and beautiful (according to Phil and mom) --- not to mention extraordinary hearing --- but have a heartbeat and blush like everybody else. My mom and dad broke-up when I was physically 4 years old. Then she met Phil.

"I'm back!" mom yelled entering the room.

"Great, now lets go!" I said jumping up.

"Someone's excited." she said with a faint giggle.

I didn't even wait for them, shooting out the door. Soon enough they were right by me running in the woods. Phil and Renee didn't like staying in one place, but I wanted to feel somewhat normal, so they did it for me. Soon we were at the next town over. To keep our secret, we never hunted in Phoenix. I know what you're thinking, a vampire, in PHOENIX?!!?!?!? My parents called me their secret weapon. Since I didn't shine in the sun, I was able to go in the streets and drag someone back to the woods. But I hated taking someone without their choice. I was tired of hearing their pathetic screams for help, so Renee and Phil were coaching me on how to get people to just follow me.

It was a snap, these humans were suckers. One bat of my eyelashes and wink, and they were like putty in my hands. After feeding on 5 helpless, stupid humans, we decided to head home.

"Alright Bella, you got the just of it. Lets call it quits for the day." Phil said.

"You to go, I think I'll walk."

Renee raised and eyebrow at me. They didn't understand my strange behavior. Like how sometimes I chose to eat normal food instead of blood, and walking home instead of running. But they didn't argue. Instead they just shrugged and took off. I sighed and started walking.

"Hello." A voice purred from the trees.I looked up just in time to see a vampire jump down in front of me.

"You smell heavenly." he said.

What? Is he from the 19 hundreds or something. I rolled my eyes.

"You don't seemed scared." he said.

I couldn't help it, I laughed out loud.

"That's because I'm not."

"And that's because you don't know what I am." he said stepping closer.

I rolled my eyes.

"Of course I do, you're a vampire." I said in a 'duh' tone.

"And you're not scared? After all, I am the most dangerous predator."

I rolled my eyes. This guy was so full of himself.

"Nope." I said in a flat tone sounding bored.

He laughed and charged, stopping inches from my face.

"Bet you are now." he said smugly.

"Oh you'd lose that bet." I said smugly myself.

"You should be." then he tried to attack.

I quickly responded and defended myself. Renee and Phil insisted I take karate, kung fu, and ti quean doe classes in case I needed to defend myself. I laughed in their faces. At the time my mind was on the humans, and how could they possibly hurt me. I guess I'll have to thank them when I get home.

He starred up at me in shock. I had completely flipped him.

"I know how to defend myself." I said proudly.

He looked more confused than ever.

I rolled my eyes and explained myself.

"So that's why you weren't scared."

"Ya think?"

"Clever girl, cute too."

I blushed immediately. This boy was a charmer.

"So sorry for the misunderstanding, I was just looking for a quick and easy meal."

I laughed.

"And how'd that turn out for you?"

"Horribly. I ended up on the ground with an angel starring down at me."

I blushed again. Defiantly a charmer.

"Until another time," he paused and pulled a flower out of a nearby tree and put it behind my ear, he paused I think expecting me to state my name.


"Bella, a beautiful name for a beautiful girl." he said kissing my hand.

What is up with all my blushing!?!?!?

"Thank you," I paused, it was his turn.


Gregory, he was defiantly from the 19 hundreds.

With that he was gone. I happily skipped, yes skipped, home.

4 months later

It had been 4 months since I met Greg, and I was proud to say I was in love. I'm very aware that vampire mate for life. Well not life, more like forever. Greg and I, forever together. I like the sound of that. I smiled again glancing at the note and rose I found in my room. I don't know how, or really care how he got in my room. I glanced back over it for the millionth time.

Dearest Bella,

Meet me in our spot in the woods by Phoenix,

I have important news to share.

Love your love,


I eternally sighed. Greg was my forever. OMG he might propose! What else could it be?!!?

"I'm going out mother." I said running out the door.

I heard her and Phil laugh. It took me no time at all to reach our spot. It was simple, but beautiful. An old tire swing in a tree, right next to a small stream.

"Hello." he purred from the tree.

"Hello." I smiled kissing him.

"Mmmmmm, you smell wonderful."

I froze. Why? I don't know. Perhaps it was the sickening sound in his voice. I pulled away. He laughed.

"Yes, you smell delightful. I bet you taste even better."

He hadn't talked to me like that since we met.

"W-w-what are y-you talking about."

He laughed.

"Yes, you'll make a wonderful meal for me. Your blood is after all calling me. It has since the very beginning. That's why I devised this plan."

"W-what p-p-plan?"

"This. It was so easy too. You're to easy to flatter. A few flowers, hair tucks, and charming words and you had fallen head over heels. You made it all to easy to manipulate your emotions. It took me only 4 months to trick you into this. Now I shall reap my reward."

"W-what?" I muttered, on the verge of tears.

I knew it was to good to be true.

"All this time was a lie. Every kiss, hug, 'I love you', everything was a simple lie with you, and you fell for the bait. I don't love you, I never did."

I shook my head, now tears streaming down my cheeks.

"Y-you don't mean t-that. You love me, and I love you."

He simply laughed.

"Only the last part was true, Bella dearest. I love blood, not worthless creatures."

That pierced my heart like a jagged knife. Now I was just a creature? I fell to the ground, gasping for air, clutching my chest. Then I realized it. This was his plan. While I was down in agony, he would take advantage of my weakness and attack. I looked up just in time to see him charge.

As well as I could, I defended myself. I was fighting for my life now, but honestly, what was the point? Just as I was about to give up and let Greg win, Renee and Phil popped in my head. They would be crushed if anything happened to me. So I fought, not for myself, but for my parents. Finally I was able to fight free and run away. I ran as fast as my legs would carry me.

Somehow, I made it home. I ran inside, to see my mother waiting for me in the living room. She was concerned when she noticed my face.

"Bella, whats wrong?" she asked desperately.

"Everything!" I shouted as I ran to my room.

I was on a rampage, tearing up everything in sight, then I saw it. The note Greg left for me. I quickly grabbed it and burned it to ashes. The it occurred to me. He had been in my room. He know how to get in. I wasn't safe here. But what do I care? I curled up in a ball and cried against the wall. I heard Renee and Phil coming in. I didn't even look up.

"Bella, I'm so sorry." Renee said cradling me.

Phil must of explained. That was his gift. He could see almost a full year into someone's past. It must not of been hard just searching the last hour.

I didn't respond to my mother, but instead cried myself to sleep in her arms.
