I hope you all enjoy this chapter. I must say that I had some fun writing some of the "fluff" because... I'll tell you after. Haha, enjoy this and REVIEW and/or PM. Cuz it's polite... and nice... and I will update more often than once a month.
I don't own Twilight.
"Good morning." Alice whispered into Bella's ear, the brunette still firmly snuggled into her vampire. It sounded lame, but she couldn't imagine being anywhere else. Bella slowly awoke, sitting up and drowsily gazing at her girlfriend. "Well that's not a nice face."
"Sorry," Bella giggled, realizing that she was sort of glaring. "You're just really shiny. I think I'm still dreaming." Alice laughed too, shaking her head as she lifted a glittering arm.
"Nope, you're awake… finally." Bella quirked an eyebrow at that statement, only to have Alice grin back at her. "Joking… joking…"
"Sure you are." Bella rolled her eyes, still not entirely comprehending the sparklyness of her girlfriend. "You're blinding me."
"With impressive good looks, or my esteemed sparkling skin?" Alice said in her suave, player tone. Bella shot up, immediately awake now.
"Wait, you are actually shiny?" Her face contorted into so much shock and confusion that Alice couldn't contain her laughter anymore.
"Well, vampires really wouldn't have been that popular for Halloween if people thought that we sparkled instead of roasting in the sun." Alice shrugged, smirking as Bella began to put two and two together.
"So you sparkle… instead of burning?" She said slowly, almost sounding dumb.
"Don't sound so disappointed…" Alice muttered, mocking hurt. The next thing the human did however, through the vampire off. Bella fell off the bed laughing, her sweet beautiful laughter mesmerized Alice, completely capturing the vampire's focus. Alice leaned over the side of the bed, just staring at the human.
"You know, I totally forgot about the sunlight thing." Bella managed to say, stifling her giggles.
"That's pretty easy, with living in Fork and all." The vampire gave her best smirk, gently holding Bella's chin as she leaned in and captured the soft delicate human lips. It was a tender kiss, the passion burning like an eternal flame, low but strong. "You're beautiful."
"Don't talk." Bella whispered, getting back on the bed and scooting closer to the spiky haired vamp. Their lips met again, except Bella was ready for it, completely awake now. There was something… enchanting about the way Alice became so soft and gentle, that Bella just couldn't even think about being with anyone else. The thought was unreal, and bluntly it just seemed stupid to her. Why settle when she has the world, all wrapped up into the being known as Alice Cullen. Alice leaned forward, pushing Bella onto her back and she loomed over the defenseless human.
"Did I ever tell you, you're beautiful?" Alice asked, her voice distracted as she began caressing Bella's collarbone and neck with tender kisses.
"Yeah, you've mentioned it a few times." Bella half laughed, half moaned. She loved how lost Alice became when they were together, as if Bella was the most mysterious thing on the planet.
"Only a few? I'm falling behind." The vampire said softly, cold air tickling Bella's skin as she spoke. The human gasped softly, feeling an icy hand massage underneath of the t-shirt's fabric. Rubbing at an antagonistic pace, Alice's hand finally moseyed its way up to Bella's bra.
"Could you g-go any sl-slower?" Bella hissed, frustrated even further when she heard a quiet chuckle. "Not… fun—" Bella yipped when the bra's middle was ripped, and a hard hand tenderly caressed the mound.
"Always so impatient." Alice smirked, taking in the soft moans emitting from beneath her.
"Sh-shut up a-a-ahh…" Bella's retort was drowned out by a dreamy groan when the spiky haired vampire softly planted whispered kisses on her stomach. These small, seemingly insignificant, gestures continued for the better part of ten minutes, Alice teasing by swooping lower with her pecks, and the brunette was spellbound. Suddenly, Alice froze all of her actions. "I swear if you—"
"How mad would you be if I said we had to stop?" Alice asked innocently, her cheesy grin turning to a grimace when Bella gave her a cold glare. "That mad, huh?" Still the vamp tried to make a joke of it, wanting to dissipate some of the tension in the room.
"Worse." Came the human's flat reply, her hormones begging for the intimate actions to continue.
"Hey, it's not my fault, I—"
"What did you see?" Bella demanded, hushing her girlfriend with a stern annoyed tone. Alice's shoulders dropped, and she scratched the back of her neck nervously.
"Your dad's coming home a few hours earlier than he expected. Apparently the fishing sucked." Alice muttered out, feeling bad for getting her girlfriend all riled up. Bella's face flushed, a red hue entering her cheeks at the thought of her father walking in on them in the rather… intimate position. "I'm sorr—"
"S'okay." Bella cut her off again, and Alice gave her a confused brow, not realizing why her pissed girlfriend was suddenly fine. "Look, I really, really don't want my dad to ever walk in on us… that would be really, really awkward."
"That makes sense." Alice shrugged, getting up from the bed and checking the time. "I've got to get home, and your dad is almost here, so I really need to go."
"What's the rush?" Bella wondered, a little suspicious as to why the vampire was running like the house was on fire.
"It's sunny today, and we don't want your dad to see me shimmering in the daylight while I'm waltzing to my car, now do we?" Alice threw her best smirk, and Bella felt immediately relieved.
"Alright, be safe." Bella stood up, walking her girlfriend to the door. "Oh do you want your jacket?"
"Keep it," Alice's tone sincere. "It's pretty warm out anyways." And the sincerity dribbled off into a sarcastic comment. Bella laughed, expecting nothing less. They stood by the front door, staring at each other. "Bye." Alice grabbed the knob, kissing Bella on the cheek.
"Wait." The human jolted, taking fistfuls of Alice's shirt in her hand, pulling the vampire flush against her body. "Promise me you won't run away again." Bella begged, hugging Alice around the waist, squeezing so hard that if the vampire were mortal, she'd surely suffocate. "Please…"
"I'm so sorry." Alice felt sick, nauseous that she made her girlfriend worry so much. She was supposed to protect the human, keep her safe, but every time Alice looked back, Bella saved her. "I'm not going anywhere, I promise. I'm staying right here, and I'm keeping you safe, and one day soon, all this shit will be behind us. Soon it'll just be you and me." Alice swore, no humor or doubt in her voice, only complete seriousness and honesty.
"Good, I'll see you later, Champ." Bella kissed Alice fiercely, and Alice returned the gesture.
"Soon Beautiful, very soon." And they detached themselves, Alice making her way to the car in lightning speed, to avoid being seen in the sun, and Bella just stood there, watching the vampire wave goodbye from the car.
It was amazing, in a sick sadistic way. They both hurt. They both had this hole that seemed to fester and bubble with agony. Being apart hurt each of them. It wasn't entirely conscious pain, but in was inside of you. It's like if you sprain your wrist. You don't think about the pain all the time. So when you go to pick up your car keys, the sudden jolt of agony rips through your body, making you gasp for breath. You learn to function, but it's still there. Being apart, separate… it was becoming such a foreign concept to both Bella and Alice. There was so little time when they couldn't hold each other, or see each other.
The problem with Bella now, was that she saw that she could lose Alice. Before, that was never a possibility, never even a figment of a thought. Alice couldn't grow old, she couldn't die of illnesses, and she was virtually indestructible. The fact that Bella could drive away the vampire shook Bella to her core. Alice could leave, walk away and never be seen again. And from what Bella had come to know from the vampire, that was a common reaction to problems. But Alice didn't break promises, and that small deed was like a contract between the two. Alice wouldn't run, and Bella needed to know that. It was a matter of her sanity.
"Why are you here?" Alice hissed into her phone, guilt making her words come out harsh and cold.
"You don't seem very happy with my visit." The man's voice was light and sarcastic, not fazed by Alice's anger.
"You gave me my memories back Dean, we have nothing more to discuss." Her words were calculated, leaving no room for questions.
"You called me, remember?" Dean said, and Alice could hear his phone crackling.
"Where are you?" She demanded, sighing in defeat.
"Five miles out of town, in the woods by that first curve. My car is parked down that old trail. I'll see you soon." He hung up, leaving a frustrated Alice. She hated this. She didn't lie to Bella, but it wasn't just the sun that made her need to leave the house. She couldn't let Dean show up on Bella's doorstep, or her own, and that's exactly where the insistent man was headed. It didn't take long for Alice to pick up his scent, nor long to find his car. It was parked under a few low branches in a clearing, the shade casting the white sports car into a grey shadow.
"Why are you here?" She repeated her earlier question, looking up the tree to find Dean resting against the trunk twenty feet up. He opened his eyes, grumbling as he jumped off the limb.
"He's my brother. The least I can do is help you out." He shrugged, like it was something she should expect.
"Dean, I know you. You're just as afraid of him as you were of Vincent." She growled, glaring with icy eyes.
"I'm not afraid of my brother. He's pathetic, and insane." He argued vehemently, taking a step closer to Alice. They were inches apart, glares creating a wave of tension.
"You're a coward, Dean. We both know that you won't be able to finish him off."
"You're wrong. Just because I wasn't able to kill my father, doesn't make me a coward." He challenged, looking off to the side. "I… I didn't mean that." He knew that the whole 'father' subject was a bit edgy for the pixie vamp, and he felt guilty for bringing it up. "I owe you, I get that. I'm not asking to move in, or be friends, or anything… Just let me help."
"Fine." She acknowledged, finding his begging irritating.
"I'm guessing by that look on your face, that he's already showed up, huh?" Dean scratched his chin, a nervous chuckle leaving his throat.
"Yeah, yesterday. It didn't go great, as you can imagine." She grumbled, not really wanting to face the previous day's events. "He's going to go after Bella."
"That girl? The one in your vision?" He asked, a sly grin planting itself on his face.
Several Years Ago (right after Alice killed Vincent)
"I don't owe you anything." Alice hissed, changing into some clothes that Dean brought her.
"I know…" He muttered lowly, sitting in a chair away from the newborn. "I owe you though."
"What could you possibly do for me?" She laughed a bitter, lifeless sound. He stared at his hands, not looking up.
"I have a gift… like you. I can manipulate memories. I can take them away." He said softly, knowing that her hyperactive senses could easily pick up his words. She finished putting on the clothes, discarding the brunt asylum gown on the floor. The fabric was still warm to the touch. "Or I can give you better ones." He suggested, itching his chin.
"I had a vision. One that I had right before I heard you all leaving to help with the riot. When I was underwater, I thought it was a dream…" She chuckled again, hate in her tone. "I thought I was in heaven."
"Did you see the fire?" He asked curiously, wondering why she was even telling him. She just shook her head, a disbelieving smirk twitching at her features.
"No… I saw a beautiful brunette. And we were together… happy. She laughed when I kissed her, I made her smile." Her smirk turned into a blissful smile, all the evil in her life fading for a moment. "I can't have that with these memories. I can't move on." The happiness slid from her face, a pained grimace taking its place. "Take them."
"Which ones?" He stood, waiting for her to start telling him what she wanted gone and what she wanted left.
"All of them, everything…" She ruffled her hair, rubbing the back of her neck.
"How will you find that girl then?" He muttered, shaking his head. Normally he only took away someone's entire memory if he lost his temper. It was a cruel thing to destroy someone's livelihood. "Mary, think abo—"
"What?" He questioned, raising an eyebrow in confusion.
"Just Alice now." She sighed, her tormented gaze reaching his. He knew she was right. She would never be able to move on; it would be crueler to leave her with everything than to take it away.
"Alright, Alice." He made his way to the bed. "Lie down." He told her, and she warily did so. He placed a hand on her head, staring into her bright red eyes for a moment. "I hope we will meet in the future." He smiled sadly, but she just laughed.
"I don't." And she closed her eyes, being engulfed by darkness.
"Yes, the same one." Alice answered, not liking his grin.
"I'm glad you found her." He nodded his approval, of which she just rolled her eyes. "Is she as amazing as you thought?"
"A simple vision doesn't do justice." Alice smirked, thinking back to the vision in question.
Future (Alice's vision)
A beautiful brunette sat next to Alice, hugging the vampire. They were lying on the grass, staring at the strange movement of the clouds. It wasn't sunny; it was actually a terrible day. The wind was awful, and the humidity was enough to make a human gag. The clouds seemed to do more harm than good, acting as a lid, trapping all the muggy heat on the ground to slowly bake the occupants. The girl was still smiling though, laughing as she shook her head.
"You better hold still." Alice murmured, her nose touching the girl's ear as she whispered. The girl just giggled again.
"Or what?" The voice was amazing, and it held a challenging rebellious edge to it.
"Or I might have to…" Alice trailed off as she attacked the brunette with swift kisses, too fast for the girl to react, making the girl swat at Alice playfully.
"When have I ever played fair?" Alice chuckled, slowing her attacks. She just stared at the girl, taking in the gorgeousness before her. Leisurely, Alice placed a soft firm kiss on the brunette's lips, earning an immediate and eager response.
And Present... again
"I'm sure you're right." He admitted, going to his car. "We both better get going. Just give me a call when you need some help." He got in, rolling the window down. "I may be wrong, but I don't think even you saw all this coming." With that he started his car and drove away, leaving a thoughtful Alice Cullen behind. No, she certainly didn't see this coming. Walking to her mustang, she pulled out her phone.
"Yo Ali-Cat, what's up?" Emmett's childish voice rang out immediately.
"I'm on my way home, do you think that you could watch Bella for a bit. I don't like leaving her alone while James is out." She asked him, needing to go home and talk with Carlisle.
"Sure thing, Pixie. Do you want Rose to come too?" He asked, and Alice could practically hear the blonde rolling her eyes.
"You know you aren't going to get lucky at Bella's house, right?" Alice assured him, and she heard Rose laugh.
"She's right, Em." Rose confirmed, still laughing.
"Yeah yeah, we're headed over." He grumbled playfully, huffing. "Bye." Alice hung up the phone, getting in her car and driving home as fast as possible. If she knew James well, which sadly she did, he wasn't patient enough to wait too long before he went after the human. The game was just getting interesting.
I hope you liked it. I did kinda steal Alice's vision from my own personal experience. Oh well, my gf will just have to get over it. Haha, I couldn't resist. And for saying that, I'll probably end up sleeping on the couch tonight. You're welcome.
You can show you appreciation with my sacrafice by leaving a REVIEW and/or PM.
Thank you and have a nice day (cue cheesy smirk)
