Have you ever wondered what would happen if the Cullens found ? Let's just say the truth has a funny way of coming out.
Chapter 1: Not Quite Human
I was at the Cullens again hanging out with Edward. He was always so careful with me. Not that he had to be, but I hadn't told them yet. I couldn't. I didn't want to put them in danger like that. It was better if I just stayed in hiding and they never knew the truth, but that wasn't possible. I would have to tell them soon, but not today. Today would be peaceful. Maybe tomorrow…
I had been listening to music in Edward's room when Alice came in and dragged all of us over to a computer screen .Then she started yelling. "Why the hell do they have stories with Jasper and Bella paired together? Where the heck am I? Where's Edward?" I took a step back.
"I don't know. Read the first chapter." I suggested.
"You read it." Jasper offered. When I was done the hole in my chest was threatening to open again. I gasped as the pain hit me, and then I was sobbing. I minimized the offending page of print.
"Bella, what's wrong? What happened in the story?"
"You and Alice d-d-died," I forced out. "You were trying to protect me from Victoria and you both died. The family left again. Jake wouldn't talk to me. In the story I'm completely alone." A fresh wave of tears over took me.
"Shh! Bella it's okay. Victoria is dead, and I'm never going to leave. I swear." I nodded and wiped away the tears. I looked over and saw Jasper looking at Alice, tortured.
"I'm not going anywhere Jasper." She assured him. We went back to the main page on the website.
"What is my name doing paired with Jasper's?" Edward asked confused.
"Edward looked to the back of the class where his blonde haired god sat. He wasn't looking at Edward but that was better. It was better that he didn't know he existed… when the two meet at a party will sparks fly? Edward/ Jasper love story don't like it don't read it. All human." I was laughing before I was even done reading the description. Emmett came into the room laughing.
"I didn't know you bent that way bro!" Emmett teased Jasper.
"Hey what about me?"
"I've always had doubts about you Eddie-boy."
"Hey! I am his girlfriend after all!" I said, mad.
"Are you still a virgin?" Emmett questioned.
"Yes." I said blushing. Everyone laughed.
"My point exactly," Emmett said smirking.
"Stop smirking. They have stores in here about you and Leah Clearwater." I laughed at Emmett's disgusted expression.
"Hey they have one in here about me being a vampire and all of you being human." I said surprised. They Cullens refocused their attention to the screen.
"I was moving to Forks… again. I hated this small dismal town. I wanted to move back with Renee and her coven but I didn't like there hunting style. It had been a vain attempt to try and convert them to 'vegetarians' but at least I had tried. I sped to school in my new Vanquish. I started this day thinking school would be dull and boring but that was before I heard his mind." Everyone gasped.
"Bella, you're a mind reader?" Emmett looked shocked.
"In the story I am. But come on this story has everything backwards… They have me as a vampire!" Was this story accurate?
"Do they have anything about Port Angeles in here?" I skipped through a few chapters to find the one they wanted.
"I was waiting for him to come out of the damn movie. I hadn't spied on him during the entire thing, but it was tempting. I just wanted to know what he was doing. That was when I heard him scream. I nearly ripped the door off the car as I rushed towards the movie theater. I couldn't run too fast it would scare the humans that surrounded me, but I was still moving faster then any human."
"What the hell?" Rosalie asked.
"Shh! Let Bella keep reading! I want to see what's happening to me!" Edward whined. I smirked before returning to the story.
"I reached the theater he was in to see five teens, all from Forks High standing around him, jeering. The biggest one kicked him. They didn't notice as I went up behind them. 'Leave him alone!' I hissed my voice had gone hard and it was all I could do to stop myself from tearing them apart. They looked at me and laughed. 'Getting a girl to stand up to us? You are such a wimp Edward.' That was the final straw. I grabbed the nearest boy and threw him into the one that had kicked Edward. The other boys just looked at me angry. One tried to hit me and I easily threw him across the room. The other three just ran out of the theater. I wanted to kill them. No, I needed it. It had to happen."
"Bad Bella! Leave the humans alone!" Emmett teased me. "I never knew you had it in you."
"You sound just as mad as I was that night in Port Angeles." Edward mused.
"Edward do you realize that if someone hurt you, and if I was capable of it, I would not hesitate to tear them limb from limb?" The Cullens all gaped at me.
"What? No one messes with my boyfriend." Emmett took a step back and Edward smiled at me.
"Keep reading!" Alice insisted.
"I was about to follow them when I heard Edward start to move around again. I returned to my senses. I couldn't kill them. Edward deserved far better then a murderer… far better then me. I rushed to his side. He was pretty banged up. 'Bella?' he asked. His scent hit me hard but I had no urge to kill him this time, just to help him. Edward's blood wasn't bothering me as much as it normally did either, but I needed to stop the bleeding fast. I didn't want to be tempted. If I hurt him I wouldn't be able to live with myself."
"Damn it! Go kill them!" Emmett said, disappointed.
"No! Edward is more important then revenge." I nearly growled at him. Edward was still smirking.
"What makes you so sure I deserve you at all?"
"Edward, think. You're so normal. In this story I obviously have terrible luck and I don't want anything to happen to you because of me!" I said, explaining myself.
'Yes, its me. Come on. We have to get you cleaned up.' Everyone was already gone so I went into the bathroom with him and helped him clean up his bloody lip. Once the bleeding had stopped the burning in my throat lessened, if only slightly.
His stomach growled loudly. 'Let's go get you something to eat.' He nodded eagerly and followed me to a restaurant. 'Hello,' the seater introduced himself. He was staring at me. His thoughts made me want to puke. I didn't even think it was possible for his mind to get anymore volatile. 'something private.' I had no clue what Edward had seen in the movie theater and I was sure he would have questions. He always had questions. Once we were alone he started. 'What were you doing in Port Angeles?' I bit my lip. The answer to that one would scare him… I mean who wouldn't be scared? How many people have a vampire stalking them?"
"I think you're the only one Bella." Emmett choked out through laughter.
'Next'. He was frustrated by my answer but he let it drop. 'How did you know where I was?' 'I heard you scream' 'but how did you know exactly what theater I was in?' this kid was so damn persistent! 'fine, I followed your scent.' I looked over at him. His face was blank and his only thought was 'cool!' I rolled my eyes. He was so strange. Shouldn't that bother him?
"This story isn't fair! I can't read your mind. How come you get to read mine?"
"Because I'm amazing." I reminded him smirking.
"Are you going to order?" The waiter asked, smiling at me. I shuddered. His thoughts were so nasty! How the hell did he come up with that crap? I mean really. His mind was so fucked up I was seeing things no one else had ever thought of before. I was 200 and this guy was thinking up shit I'd never thought of!
"Naughty Bella! What have you been thinking of?" Emmett teased.
"Lot's of things." I replied with a straight face. That threw him.
"No thanks. I'm not hungry." But if you don't get the fuck away from me right now I will take you somewhere you'll be on the menu. I thought angrily.
The Cullens were looking at me with wide eyes. I just shrugged it off.
"Edward?" I asked looking at him.
"I'll have some pasta." The waiter left with an extra smile. I ignored him. I had eyes only for one boy tonight.
"I am not a boy!" Edward, exclaimed shocked more than anything.
"Yes, you're right. You're 17 and I'm 200… you're more like an infant." All of the Cullens laughed at my comment as Edward sulked.
"What are you thinking about?"
"Nothing of importance." Edward was smirking.
"What?" I asked suddenly irritated.
"I didn't say that out loud."
The Cullens were laughing at me again.
Shit! "What do you want to know?" I asked, still aggravated at my slip up. I hadn't been so carless since a century ago. This boy had history repeating itself. I could only hope that this time it's for the better.
"What the hell does that mean?" I bit my lip.
I would make things go as planned. I refused to let anyone else die for me. It would upset…father.
"Who," Emmett questioned. I refused to answer. Damn it! This story was going to tell the truth, all of it. They were going to find out!
"I think we should stop reading this." I said.
"Why? It's really good." Emmett countered.
"I just don't think you'll like it. Trust me. I've read this one before." I tried to assure them. How the hell had some chick found my story?
"Bella, why are you so nervous?" Damn empath! Did you have to ask that?
"Then let's keep reading."
"No!" I nearly yelled. If they found out there would be hell to pay.
"Why not?" Edward asked. Shit! Now he was concerned! I took a deep breath and told them the truth.
"Because of all the ways I imagined you learning my story this was never one of them." They gaped at me. I rushed to the girl's page and deleted her story. Now they couldn't even read it.
"What?!?!?!?!" They all questioned.
"I'm not the weak human girl you all think I am." I admitted.
"You lied to us?" Rose asked. Of course she would be the first to question my integrity.
"I lied to you to protect you. You have no idea the forces at work all around you. You do not want to become involved in my world." I warned them.
"Bella, you're scaring me. What didn't you tell us?"
"I didn't tell you a lot. I've been living a lie since I came here. First off Charlie isn't my dad. He's a servant to my 'family'." They were still staring. "I can't tell you everything. You'd get hurt. I've exposed myself enough. You aren't even supposed to know people like me exist!" I said more to myself then to them.
"Bella, what are you?"
"I can't tell you. It would upset father." I said looking down. Edward lifted my chin.
"Is it that bad?" Edward asked.
"Ummm… bad as in it could get everyone killed: yes. Bad as in it would disgust you: I… don't know." I replied.
"You're not human?" Emmett affirmed.
"No, I'm not." They were staring at me.
"I don't believe that." Alice.
"Zip it kid!" I said irritated.
"Kid? Bella I'm over 80 years older then you." She reminded me laughing.
"Really, you're 880 years old?" I questioned laughing. They were all gaping at me.
"You're older then Carlisle." I nodded.
"Seriously Bella, what are you?" Emmett questioned.
"I don't want to put you all in any more danger then I already have."
"What danger have you already put us in?" Rosalie asked irritated once more.
"James and his coven weren't nomads that just happened to want to kill me. They were sent here by my father. He's pretty pissed at me."
"Why would that be?"
"I tried to stop him from sinking Atlantis." They were speechless again. "As you probably know I didn't succeed."
"What the fuck?" Emmett said stunned.
"Language Emmett!" Esme called entering the house. I heard Carlisle enter after her. They came up stairs to see everyone still staring at me.
"What's going on?" H e questioned.
"Bella's not human." Emmett blurted out.
"What?" Carlisle inquired bewildered.
"He's right, I'm not human."
"You aren't a vampire either." I couldn't really reply to that one.
"Can we talk about this later? I need to check on some things in my world to see how dangerous this is actually going to be." They were staring at me shocked. Rosalie was suspicious. "I'm not going to try and get every one killed Rosalie so drop it." I rolled my eyes at her. "Damn fledglings." I muttered under my breath. Rosalie hissed at me. "Don't push me little one." I replied smiling. Emmett was laughing. Everyone else was staring at me.
"Bella you do realize you just threatened a vampire right?" I nodded.
"Yes, but Rosalie doesn't know what she just threatened does she? Until you all find out it would be wise of you not to make threats you won't be able to follow through with. I need to go home. I'll be back in a day or less it depends…" I informed them evasively.
"I'll take you home." Edward said.
"It would be faster if I just ran. Trust me; you don't want to be anywhere near my people until I train you."
"I really don't think so." Jasper smirked at me.
"You wouldn't last five minutes even if it was against a hatchling from my species." I shook my head at their foolishness. I didn't want them hurt but their pride could be their downfall. "I need to leave. Bye Edward." I kissed him lightly on the lips before taking off out of the house. I was scared, really scared. What was everyone on the council going to think? Technically I was above all of them, but I didn't want to cause an uprising. Was I strong enough to protect them all? I had to be. There wasn't an option anymore.
