Chapter 1 Dance recital

"Hurry drew!! I'm going to be late!!" I ran in human speed across the lawn towards the theater. Ugh! I hate running so slow. It makes me even more nervous. Today is my dance recital. Well this isn't actually my first but every time I have a dance recital, I always get so nervous. I breathe in and out. I reminded myself. It's not like I needed air, but it's the only method I know that can calm me.

"Relax Bella. Don't worry everybody will love you." drew said this as he me pulled to the backstage.

Drew is my brother. He have average built, pale just like every vamp I know. And he has a blonde shaggy hair. Drew is not my brother by blood but I treat him like one. "Hey drew, what time mom and the others are coming?" I asked nervously.

"Um... I don't know maybe, before the show starts. Duh?!!" humph! He said as he raises one of his eyebrows. I just rolled my eyes at him. He is sometimes annoying.

After I got ready, the emcee started to introduce us. If I my heart is still beating, I swear it's going to burst right out of my chest. After fidgeting for 20 minutes, my name was called. I went into the stage and started my ballet/hip hop dance. Drew was the one who thought of that idea.

The music was able to relax my body. I really love this song, Single Ladies by Beyonce'. Drew put a touch of his orchestra skills on the music by remixing my cd with some of his compositions. The crowd applauded when I was over. I'm kinda used to it though, the standing ovations, bouquets flying everywhere. I just want to have fun.

I saw my family sitting at the back row. Zon waved at me while the others just smile. I smile at them in return. I went directly to my dressing room to change. My teachers congratulated me, unexpectedly, Gail, my other brother came in with a bouquet of red roses.

"Congratulations lil sis. Your dance was awesome!! The people watched you with their mouths open. It was so hilarious." His booming laugh surrounded my room.

I smack him in the head. "Stop it!" Gail is an annoying yet funny type of brother. He is always there to make fun of me. Well every brother is. There was a silent knock.

"Oh mom!!"I run towards zon to catch her adoring hug.

Zon is the leader of our coven. We kinda treat her as our mom. She's always there whenever you needed support and advice. She works as a doctor ~strange huh? A vampire as a doctor. I really admired her because of her self control and her passion to help others that needed her. "Bella you were great!!" she hugged me even tighter.

"Congrats Bella!!" Gleb and Quinn both came in.

"Well thanks guys. Where's drew??" everyone looked at zon. "Guys?"

Zon was first to speak "there are other vampires that watched your show so drew was the one who entertained them." she looked at me assuringly.

"Well then come on let's meet them." They all nodded.

Zon was explaining about the vampires on the way home.

"I don't know anything about them yet, but drew was the one who meet up with them. They will be visiting us, so guys please behave, okay?" Gail, gleb and I just laugh at her.

Zon and Quinn looked at the three of us murderously.

"Don't worry zon, I will make sure that there will be nothing to worry about." Quinn reassured zon.

Gail snorted. "Yah like that's gonna happen."

"I mean it." Zon said in her motherly tone.

"Yes, mom." We all said.

When we came to the house we saw a Volvo parked in front.

We went out all at the same time, with wondering faces.

I heard drew's voice "there home. Just wait till you meet Bella." I was surprised. I didn't know that I will be a topic. I looked at zon curiously.

"They really wanted to meet you because they were amazed by your dance." She smiled at me.

All I can say was "oh okay"

Drew opened the door for us.
