So here's the first chapter of my new story. I'll try to update as soon as I can. Please Read &Review. Enjoy!
I pulled my car over to the side of the road and stepped out into the rain. I walked a few steps into the woods and then stopped and ran my fingers though my hair roughly. I had to stop, I couldn't keep driving. Ever since Ianto died, I'll have moments where it all comes crashing down on me, that he's gone, that I'll never see him again, never hold him again… That's why I had to leave Cardiff. I couldn't keep working at Torchwood like everything was fine. I had to get away from the memories, to try to forget.
After a long while I was pulled out of my sadness by the fact that I was soaked. It was pouring, like it usually does in Forks and my coat had protected my body from getting wet but my hair was dripping down my forehead. Why am I in Forks, you ask? I decided that while I was traveling I was going to visit some old friends. That reminds me…
I took my phone out of my pocket and dialed.
The voice on the other end answered, "Hello."
"Hello, Carlisle," I said.
"Jack?" he said.
"Yeah," I said with laughter in my voice.
"I haven't heard from you in a very long time," he said.
"I know," I said, "I'm in the area and was wondering if I could come by and visit."
"Yes, we would love to have you," he said, "I just have to warn you my family has grown since the last time you visited, It's not just Edward and me. I have a wife now."
"Well, Congratulation. I can't wait to meet them all," I said.
"Great, I'll see you soon then," he said.
"Yes, I'll be right over," I said.
I put the phone in my pocket and started to walk back to my car. I got in the front seat and started to drive to the Cullen's house.
I pulled into their long, winding drive-way and drove down it towards the house. I parked behind a sliver Volvo and got out of the car. The house was huge with a modern design. I weaved through the other cars parked in the drive and walked up to the door. I knocked on the door and within a few seconds Carlisle was standing in the doorway.
"Wow, that was quick, I'll have to get used to the vampire speed," I said. Carlisle just chuckled.
"Come in," he said, "Come meet the rest of my family."
I walked into the house and saw 7 vampires sitting in the living room. Carlisle and I walked over to where everyone was sitting.
He started by pointing to a vampire with blond, curly hair and a painful look in his eyes. "This is Jasper," he said, then he pointed to the short brown haired girl sitting next to him holding his hand and said, "And this is Alice."
"Nice to meet you," I said as I shook Jasper's hand.
"Over there is Emmett and Rosalie," he said while pointing to the blond and the tall muscular brunette sitting in the chair across the room, she was resting on the arm of the chair while he sat in it.
"Hello," was all I said knowing we had more introductions to go.
"And you remember Edward, Jack. And that's Bella, his wife," he said and gave me a knowing look, I think he felt the need to add in the bit about Bella being Edward's wife because he remembered that I had a little crush on Edward when we first met.
"And last but not least, this is my wife, Esme," he said, putting his arm around the tall, brunette woman standing next to him.
"It's nice to meet you all," I said and then I looked at Edward and said, "Good to see you again Edward, you haven't change a bit." Then I winked at him. He tensed up a little then, probably because of what was going though my mind.
I sat down in the living room with them and Carlisle told me about what he and his family have done since I had last seen him.
Then he said, "Jack, I don't know what your plans are, but we're having a little get-together with some of our friends for the 4th of July tomorrow, we'd love for you to come. You can stay here for the night if you'd like, we have the room."
The 4th of July, I haven't been in America for so long I forgot about the 4th. "Oh, I wouldn't want to be too much trouble," I said.
"No," he said, "It's no problem at all. You probably are only going to be in the states for awhile, we want to show you a good time."
"Well, alright then," I said. I'm always up for a party. A sleepover at a house filled with gorgeous vampires, sounds like the makings of a fun night. I better behave myself, all these vampires are taken.

My first night in Forks was uneventful. Just before sunset their friend Jacob showed up with Edward and Bella's daughter Renesmee. When I asked how two vampires had a kid together they explained how Bella was human when Renesmee was born and the story that when along with that. She's a really cute kid. We played a little before Bella and Edward took her home for bed. Kids are easy, when they're someone else's, you don't have to deal with the responsibility and the worry, you can just play with them. Then Esme cooked dinner for me and Jacob. Gwen always says that I eat a lot, but Jacob had me beat. Esme said that he eats so much because he's a werewolf (yes, I said werewolf, at Torchwood we keep weevils in the basement yet I was still shocked when I found out that there were werewolves). Then after telling the Cullens some tales from my many days of alien catching I went to bed. They put me in Edward's old room. I stared at his many CDs that were on shelves on the wall as my eyelids got heavier.
