I just read a list of 'The 100 things to do before you die.' I'm pretty surprised 'yell for help' wasn't one of them... XD
What would you do when your job was to eliminate the one you loved? What if it got in the way of your family? Would you rather please your family by eliminating the problem or run away and be with the problem? If by loving them and keeping them alive means you would be giving yours in the process- would you do anything to be with them?
Death is peaceful. Death is comforting when you know why you're dying. Life is harder. Life is hard, living knowing that the one you love is no longer here. Love is a game of the heart. One wrong move and it's all gone.
When you ask someone what their job is, what do think there going to tell you? Most people actually have a job they can tell you about. Spies can't tell you – afraid they'll blow their cover, but it's legal. And then there are the illegal jobs. It pays really well if you get the job done and you know the person your working for. If I told you my job then I would have to kill you.
There have been a few people who have figured it out, but unfortunately they're no longer around. Eventually you'll probably figure it out, but you won't be around to tell anyone either – sorry but that's part of my job.
Well I guess I can tell you a little bit about me. I know you can't tell anyone.
My name is Edward Anthony Masen Cullen and I'm twenty-one years old. Adopted son of Carlisle and Esme Cullen. I have two adopted siblings. Alice Brandon Cullen and Emmett McCarty Cullen.
We're all in the same business. My Mother and Father are in charge of keeping it together. They answer to no one – except the man in charge, but we'll get to him later.
My siblings and I have just gotten a new assignment. It's been a few months since our last one and we're excited to see who it is and where it will take us.
We own three houses – yes we're rich – One in Washington, Chicago, and New York. We all happen to be sitting in the living room at our house in Chicago anxiously awaiting our new assignments.
"He gave us three targets this time. They are all around your age and they happen to know each other." My father Carlisle said, "This will make it harder for you guys. Before you kill them you are going to need to get a hold of something important. It's a message. The only problem is we don't know where the message is. It could be anywhere. I knew Charlie – he was one of the best."
"We don't know if he's daughter knows. So it's best to be on your guard." My mother stated, "I think it would be a good idea if you befriended them. Friends are more likely to tell each other things and this will also give you a chance to snoop around their house without being questioned. Here is the list – I'm not sure who will have who, but I know you aren't allowed to switch targets." She handed me a yellow envelope. I took the only piece of paper out and glanced at it, with Emmett and Alice reading over my shoulder
Name: Isabella Marie Swan
Occupation: College student during the day and librarian in the afternoon.
Description: Brown hair- brown eyes, heart shaped face. Slender and standing around 5'4. Close to one hundred and ten pounds.
Emmett this is your target. You cannot change targets. You've done well so far and I know you will not disappoint me.

Edward- you know who your target is. I know you will do just as well this time.

"You guys will be attending Washington University. You have already been accepted and will begin in one week. Emmett- stay away from the blond. Alice- watch your brothers and Edward please don't take too long." Mom said.
"Damn-it," I heard Emmett mumble.
Right now I'm in Jasper's dorm room watching a movie with him and Rosalie. It's about vampires. It's not a bad movie – but the book was better. Rosalie is sprawled out on the floor, curled up in most of the blankets. Jasper and I are on the couch. My head is lying on his lap and he's playing quietly with my hair.
No we are not a couple. Even though a lot of our friends think we are. It works out good for us though. I'm not dating anyone right now and it keeps away all the horny guys – like Mike Newton. And Jasper is pretty sure girls are only dating him because he was in the Army. It also keeps girls from using him. He's like my big brother. I've never thought of him differently.
I was born and raised in Forks, Washington. My mother died at birth- leaving my father, Charlie, to take care of me. When I was four years old we got new neighbors. Rosalie and Jasper became my best friends- they were seven at the time. Four years later their parents we in a car crash and they became orphans. They didn't have any other living relatives so the state allowed my dad to take them in.
A few months after my sixteenth birthday we all went to New York for the first time. It was amazing and we all thought we were going to have so much fun. The day before our trip back to Washington, dad went to the corner store to buy some ice cream for us. Not two minutes had he been out of the hotel before we heard gun shots. He was killed in a drive by shooting. The police never caught the bastards.
"Bella! Stop that!" Rosalie shouted, glaring at me now instead of the television screen.
"What? I didn't do anything!" I had only been thinking!
"Bella you were thinking about that night. It's written all over your face." She said; her face softening as she came and bent down in front of me. "I'm sorry. I know you can't help what you think about. Since your not paying any attention to the movie do you want to go out for some ice cream?"
"Chocolate chip?" I asked.
"Of course," She smiled and then helped me up.
"I'll go as long as no one-," Jasper started, shifting his gaze towards me, "-eats any of my mint ice cream."
"Ow!" he shouted when Rosalie smacked him on the arm. I laughed and pulled my best friends into a hug.
Chapters will get longer! (promise) Please cheak out my poll and let me know!
If there are any characters besides B & E that you would like me to write then let me know!
