When Bella moves to Forks she's not human, but she's not a vampire either. Why is she hiding? What is she hiding from? Only Bella knows and she's not willing to tell anyone.


"I'm so bored." Emmett moaned.

We were all sitting in the living room at the Cullens-our-house. We hadn't heard from Victoria since Sam and the other wolves took her a couple weeks. Ever since them Emmett has been complaining that they should have let her go so we would have something to do.

"If you say that one more time I'm going to throw you at something." Edward growled. The other vampires in the room nodded. I laughed at Emmett's hurt expression and snuggled closer to Edward.

"Well, what do you suggest we do Emmett?" I asked with a smile.

"I don't know something besides just sitting here. I'm so BORED!"

Before I could blink, Edward was off the couch and Emmett was flying through the back door.

Rose met my gaze and we both sighed before following our immature boyfriends out side. They were on the ground wrestling and it looked like Emmett wasn't doing so well.

"Jazz, dude, help me!" He yelled.

Jasper chuckled and wrapped his arms around Alice's waist. "I think I'll stay out of this one Em."

I walked over to a nearby tree and grabbed a branch before pulling myself up. I was a jaguar before I landed on the branch.

"I have an idea." I called out. Em and Edward stopped rolling around on the ground and looked at me. "We can play…cat and mouse."

"What does that mean?" Emmett asked. He pushed Edward off him and stood up, brushing the dirt off his pants.

"That means you run," I smiled at him wickedly. "And I chase you." I stood up and got into my hunting stance. I tried to keep a straight face, but his face was so funny I started laughing so hard I almost fell off the branch I was standing on.

"Oh, God. You should have seen your face." I gasped. The laughter of my other siblings joined mine as Emmett grumbled under his breath.

Suddenly, a loud crack filled the air and I slipped off the tree branch and fell with a thud on the ground. I opened my eyes in time to see the tree falling over, in my direction. I quickly scrambled to get out of the way and barely did. I looked around quickly, searching for the danger and my eyes eventually fell on him.


I furrowed my eyes at him as the Cullens came to stand behind me.

"What are you doing here?" I asked in exasperation.

"There's a big price on your head Bella. I'm here to collect you."

I looked at Edward over my shoulder. "Is he being serious or is he just stupid?"

"I think both." Edward answered back, never taking his eyes off the Hunter standing 100 yards away from us.

"So Emmett, does this count as something exciting?" I asked him, looking back at Laurent.

"Of course." Emmett said wickedly. I chuckled and started forward, with my family by my side, ready to handle anything life may throw at us.

I was finally home.
