Well, That's a Shocker

By Vanessa Murakami

Rosalie's POV

I have to get out of here. There's only one place where I can go to get away from my family. Forks, Washington to Bella Swan. It's not like I hate my family it's just that I need a rest from them. So that's why I'm going to get away.

"No, I'm going to use the 360 first," I heard Emmett whine. I knew we shouldn't have got the 360 it would just get us into more chaos.

"Emmett, Jasper and I are going to use it first," Edward said.

This is getting ridiculous. I looked up from my magazine and shouted, "That's enough I'm leaving!"

"But Rosie what did I do?" Emmett asked.

"You annoyed me with Edward and Jasper and Alice doesn't even hang out with us anymore she's always with Carlisle. Ugh, I'm leaving in the morning wither you like it or not," I said telling them the truth.

"I'll miss you Rosie," Emmett said giving me his best puppy dogface.

"I'll miss you too," I said giving him a kiss.

The next day I went on a plane to go back to Forks. The plane ride took forever. Then I had to drive for an hour.

As I walked to the front door I smelt something. It smelt like blood. Oh, crap, Bella. I didn't even bother going into the front door for I know that the door would be locked. I went threw Bella's window instead.

When I got in I saw Bella I was shocked. I saw that her hand was bleeding and she had a knife in her other hand that wasn't bleeding. I can't believe that she would do this to herself.

"Bella, can you hear me?" I asked her. Good she was still breathing.

She responded with a moan. She was still unconscious, though. I picked her up and went to her bathroom. It took all my strength to not try and eat her. I put her on the cool tile and left for a split second to get a washcloth or something to stop the bleeding.

When I came back Bella was in the same state she was when I left, unconscious. I put the cloth onto her hand. Then I saw her open her eyes and look at me. Her eyes went wide and she let out a bloodcurdling scream.

"Shh, Bella, it's okay it's just me, Rosalie," I said to her.

She opened her eyes and stopped screaming and looked up at me, "Rosalie?" When she blinked a few times yelled at me, "What are you doing in my house!?"

"Bella what happened?" I said calmly.

"Why would you care!?" She shouted at me.

"Because I do," I said.

"Just leave me alone," Bella said, trying to get off the floor but falling back down. "Ugh I don't feel so good."

"That's probably because you lost so much blood," I said pointing at her hand. "Well, we should go to the doctors, I think your hand will have to have stitches."

"No, I'm not going to go to the hospital, and you can't make me," She said, trying to get up but, again, falling down.

"I think I'm going to have to," I said lifting her up into my arms and going out the window again and into my red convertible.

When we got to the doctors Bella was very limp in my arms. "Hey Bella, are you okay?"

"Ugh, the blood smells so disgusting," She groaned.

I had to set her on her feet so it would look like she was walking. As I dragged her in I saw that there was a new doctor, probably replacing Carlisle. "Hi, um I need help my friend over here needs her hand stitched," I said to the lady in the front desk.

"Okay, just wait 5 minutes," She said going on the phone to call a doctor. "You can wait in the seating room."

"Okay." I dragged Bella to the seating room and not 5 minutes later a doctor called my last name.

"Hale," He said as I got up with Bella leaning in me.

"Over here," I replied.

When we got to him he scooped Bella up and we made our way to the doctors room.

When he was stitching Bella hand up she kept fidgeting. "Bella, stop moving," I told her. She just looked up from her hand and glared at me.

When it was finally over we went to my convertible.

"I didn't like that doctor," Bella whined to me.

"Well, that's probably because you kept moving," I told her.

"Whatever," Then she started running to the forest.

The only thing that was going threw my head was, crap. I can't get her in vampire speed with the crowd. Wow, who would of thought that there was this many people to go to the hospital, I thought to my self as I ran to my car. What am I thinking, even though I can't catch her with my speed I can catch her with human speed. Just think fast, Rosalie, I thought. And with that thought in my head I ran as fast of human pace I could.

After about 10 minutes or so I started to give up when I heard a "thunk". It sounded like someone collided his or her head with something, probably wood. Then I started slowing my pace and looked down to a dazed Bella. I just shook my head and picked her up effortlessly. I mostly dragged her to my car seeing how I couldn't lift her if I were human. I placed her in the backseats.

Minutes passed and no one said a word.


"What?" She said sternly.

"Are you okay?" I asked trying to make conversation.

"Well, seeing as I have a headache and I can't see straight I think I'm fine," She said not looking at me.

"We'll be at your house soon. Then you can have some aspirin," I told her trying to lighten the mood but it didn't seem to work.

She didn't respond to that.

When we finally go to her house I helped her out and dragged her to the front door just incase someone was looking outside.

"Bella, do you have any aspirin?" I asked her looking threw the cupboards.

"No," She answered simply.

I sighed and tried to think if I should let her come with me or not, "I'll go get some, you stay here," I decided.

When I was coming back to the house I could smell alcohol a few house from where I was. At first I thought that it was just some person partying or something. Then I noticed that the smell was the strongest at Bella's house. I rushed right in to see Bella drinking, what looked like, her 3rd bear.

I quickly snatched the bear away from her and onto the ground. "Bella, what are you doing?!" I shouted at her when she saw that I was in front of her.

"Oh, Hhhiii Rosie," Bella said slurring her words.

Or course, she's drunk, I thought to myself. "Okay, Bells, lets get you to bed or something." I said picking her up from the couch and going up to her room.

"But I don't want to go to sleep Rosie Posie," She whined.

"Oh, you'll have to when Charlie's home. Where is Charlie any way?" I said noticing that he's supposed to be home by now.

"Oh, he's off to a business trip for chiefs only so I couldn't come," Bella slurred once again.

"Humph," I said.

I gently place Bella in her bed. I watched as her eyes closed and she went into a deep sleep. "What have we done to you, Bella? Leaving did no good, did it? It just made life for you worse than you already had it." I said to Bella.

When morning struck I heard a low groan come from Bella.

"Well, hello to you to Sleeping Beauty," I said to her as I got out of the rocking chair I was in and went to her bedside.

"Ow, why does my head hurt so much?" Bella almost yelled grabbing her head.

"That's probably because you had one to many bears," I said, continuing, "Geez what happened Bella? What happened to the caring smart girl that my family and I used to know?"

"Oh, that girl died when Ed – he left me," I could see the struggle go through her eyes as she thought of his name.

"Oh, I thought so. Maybe that girl doesn't have to be dead anymore," I suggested for her.

"How's that going to happen? She's dead you can't resurrect her, or me," Bella said whispering the last part.

"Bella, there's only one-way to resurrect the girl that I know, and that's to stop using drugs," I said going down stairs.

"WHAT! Where are you going?" I heard her coming towards me so I stopped and waited.

"Well, you'll see where and what I'm doing."

Bella followed me as I went to the kitchen to get all the beer that was in there. I grabbed all of them and opened all of them. Then I drained them all in the sink. Oh and I did it all in vampire speed so Bella couldn't stop me.

"Hey!" She screamed at me. "That's not cool!"
"Whether it's cool or not you have to be alive now," I told her smiling.

She crosses her arms and glares at me, "Whatever."

"Oh, come one it's just some bear. I don't even know why you like this stuff. From when I was a human I hated it, it tasted like crap." I said emptying the last can.

"So, maybe it taste horrible to you but what about me?" She asked crossing her arms.

"Well, it makes you drunk and I doubt that it taste good to you I mean crap doesn't taste very good does it?" I asked.

"Fine, you're right it doesn't taste good to me but it makes me forget about . . . him." I saw her wince as she said his name.

"I know but sometimes you're going to have to face the painful stuff even though you don't want to. If it makes you feel any better I was put down by Edward when I first met him. And I felt the pain cause I thought I really loved him but I didn't, I loved Emmett," I told her walking beside her.

"But, that's different you didn't really love him and well he was always with you because you guys are family and family doesn't leave each other," She said sinking to the floor. She was sobbing in her hands.

"Well, I didn't know it hurt you that much that we left," I said sitting down beside her and rapping my arms around her. Wow, this is so not like me. I would usually just leave her o be, but she brings out the mothering instincts I never got to have.

"I can't do this anymore," She sobbed into my shirt.

"Do what honey?" Did I really call her honey? Maybe she was meant to be my daughter but I'm 18 and she's about 16. (A.N. I changed the ages with Bella cause it seems like it would be better because when you're 16 you go threw some hard stuff sometimes.)

"I can't live anymore. Charlie and Renee adopted me. I don't even know who my real parents are," She said.

"What, do you know what you're last name is?" I asked hopping that she was my daughter. Hopping that my daughter was still alive and well physically.

"No, Charlie never told me. There's something I never told anyone. I can live forever. I'll always be 16 forever. I'm an immortal and I don't have any powers I just live forever, so, basically I'm human physically," She said finally calming down.

"What? When were you really born?" I asked getting even more hope.

"1934 September 13," She said getting up from the floor and rubbing her eyes.

"Let's go to Rochester, New York," I said getting up as well.

"Why?" She asked being stubborn as always.

"We're going to find out what your last name is," I said dragging her to my car.

"I don't understand why would we go to Rochester, New York just to find where I was born?"

"I'll tell you later," I said.

The plane ride to Rochester wasn't that bad but it was faster than running, right? Well when we finally got there I looked up some hotels to stay at so the next day we could go find out if Bella was really my daughter.

"Okay, let's go to Rochester Hospital first," I said looking at the hospital that was there since about the 1920s.

"Whatever, let's just find out what my last name is," She said rolling her eyes at how excited I was.

"Kay, let's go."

When we got there we asked for Isabella Marie.

"Do you know Isabella Marie?" Asked the nurse.

Crap, how am I going to say that Isabella Marie is Bella? "Well, I'm related to her," Bella said interrupting my thought.

"Okay, and you're name is?" She asked.

"Isabella Marie something, I don't know what my last name is that's why I'm here. I mean how many Isabella Marie's are there that was born her in 1934?" She asked rhetorically.

"Right, so here's the paper and wow," The nurse said.

"What?" I asked.

"Um, what did you say your name is miss," She said looking at me.

"Rosalie Lillian Hale, why?"

"Because I guess there was another Rosalie Lillian Hale and she had a daughter named Isabella Marie Hale. I guess you two are related then," She said as she handed us our papers.

When we were out of there, Bella looked at me shocked.

"So, I'm related to you," She said wide-eyed.

"I guess but why are you not blond. I remember when you were about 4 you were blond, I don't get it."

"Oh, that's a funny story well to cut thing short I died my hair. It's not permanent it will come out if I use this special shampoo which I have and am going to use when I take a shower," She said smiling a little.

"Oh, that makes so much sense, but why did you die your hair?"

"Because I didn't want people to be sorry for me that I don't know what my last name is and I don't know who my real parents are so I took Charlie's last name and died my hair so I wouldn't get too much attention," She said in one breath.

"Oh, well, that makes sense," I said.

"So, I think I had a really long day and I just need to go to sleep or something."

"Okay, let's get to the hotel then we can go," I said getting in the car.

"Kay whatever," She said turning her head.

"Hey, is that any way to talk to your mother?" I asked teasingly.

"Right, I still can't get used to the feeling that I have to call you mom so don't get your hopes up on me calling you that from now on it's just a little weird to do so.

"Fine you don't have to call me mom unless you feel like it," I said looking at her.


It felt like forever going back to the hotel but it was only minutes. When I looked at Bella to say, "we're here," she was asleep.
