PREFACE

Hi I'm Bella Swan, but I go by Bella Volturi. Yes, I said Volturi, because that is the coven I am in. I was found by Aro, Marcus, Caius, and Jane six months after they left me. I was -for some stupid reason- walking in our meadow when they found me. Aro had given me an evil smirk but I just ignored him and walked away. Then I sat on a rock and sobbed a little. Aro asked what was wrong and I told him. Two days later he asked me what I wanted and -me being me- said to be a vampire. He took me to Italy and changed me. My human family thinks I died in a car crash.

When I "woke up" from my change I had violet eyes and my hair was black with hot pink in my bangs and at the bottom. And my powers are amazing: people can't get into my head unless I let them in, Alice can't see my future unless I let her, and if I touch another vampire with powers I absorb that power. So now I have Aro's power, Jane's power, and Alec's power. And on top of everything I'm part Star.

Aro, Caius, and Marcus are like fathers to me and Jane and Heidi are like sisters, but this family of mine isn't the same as them.

"Bella, are you ready to hunt?" Aro asked.

"Yeah."

No one in the Volturi hunts humans as of three months ago when I caught Aro, Marcus, Caius, and Jane attacking two young girls and yelled at them. Well long story short they felt bad for upsetting me and heard my voice in their heads when they hunted, so they gave up humans.

"What are we hunting tonight?" Jane asked.

"Just what ever is around." I answered.

"OK."

Jane, Aro, Marcus, and I always hunt together and whoever else who wants to come, comes. I love hunting!!! It's so exhilarating. And since I'm part star I don't have to hunt but I do because I like the way the blood makes me feel.
