Disclaimer: I do not own Twilight.


I have just graduated from the University of Florida, with a masters degree in education. I graduated early, so now I am a twenty-two year old teacher. I have decided that I wanted to get a job closer to my father, so now I will be teaching at Forks High School teaching English. I will be staying with Charlie, my dad, until I find a place of my own. I also decided to go to Forks because I just feel like I have to be there. I cannot explain the feeling, but I know when I get there, my life is going to change drastically, but hopefully it will be a good change.


"Have you heard? Chief Swan's daughter has moved down here and is the new English teacher at the high school," I heard one of the nurses telling another.

That's all the nurses do here, is gossip. They really need to get a new hobby. I am just glad that they are not talking about me and my family. I feel bad for the Chief's daughter though, she is going to be the gossip of this town for awhile.

I am a 360 something year old, single, vegetarian vampire. I have five teenage vampire children. There's Edward, I changed him when he was 17 before he could die of the Spanish influenza, in 1918. Then it was Rosalie, who was 18 when I changed her. She was raped and left for dead by her fiancé and his friends. Then there is Emmett, Rosalie's mate and husband. I changed him when he was 18; Rosalie found him being mauled by a bear and brought him to me to change. Then there is Alice and Jasper who are also mates and are married. They were not changed by me. Jasper was changed during the Civil War at the age of 18 and Alice doesn't know her age, but we assume that she is around 16 or 17, or who her sire was because they left her by herself. They came to live with us about 60 years ago.

They are all attending high school. Edward and Alice are sophomores; and Rosalie, Jasper, and Emmett are juniors. I wonder how they are doing right now.


I can't believe I am here in high school again. The minds of these teenagers are disturbing. The boys are thinking about the new teacher, Miss Swan. They are all dreaming about doing dirty things to her and that is just disturbing. The girls are jealous because all the boys are talking about the new teacher and not paying attention to them.

It is now lunchtime and I was going to meet up with my siblings at our table. When I got to the table, I was bombarded by there thoughts of the new teacher.

"What has you guys all thinking about the new English teacher?" I asked.

Alice was jumping up and down in her seat in excitement.

"Miss Swan actually gave Emmett and I detention today, she didn't fall for our charm. We really tried to get out of it, but she wasn't even fazed. She looked and felt amused like she knew that we were trying to out of detention," said Jasper.

I laughed at them and they gave me dirty looks.

"Well, when I was leaving her class, she told me that if I ever needed to talk, that she was there for me. That I could come to her for anything, the way she was looking at me was like a mother looking at her daughter," said Rosalie.

"I don't have her until after lunch with you Edward, but I had a vision earlier about her and us," said Alice, and then she paused for dramatic effect.

"Alice, will you just tell us already," I sighed out.

"Well, I saw that she would be part of the family," said Alice.

We were all shocked into silence. What did she mean?

"What do you mean Alice?" asked Jasper.

"She is going to become one of us. She is Carlisle's mate. She will become a mother to us. She will also help bring Edward and his mate together. I can't see Edward's mate yet, but I know that Miss Swan helps Edward find her. And we will become a complete family," said Alice.

We were all shocked and Emmett's, Jasper's, and Rosalie's were blank from shock.

"I know I was shocked at first to, but I can't wait until she and Carlisle meets. They will fall in love immediately. She won't care that we aren't human and she will love us as if we were her own," Alice continued.

"So let me get this straight. She is Carlisle's mate, will become our mother, and she will help me find my mate?" I asked her after I unfroze.

"Yes, I just don't know how she finds out about what we are," she said frustrated.

"Well, how long do we have to wait for them to meet?" asked an excited Rosalie.

We all looked at her like she had three heads and six arms. Where was Rosalie the ice queen?

"What? I can be nice, I want Carlisle to be happy, and believe it or not, Edward deserves to be happy too. If she is going to make all of us happy, then I can't wait for her to become a Cullen," said Rose.

"Well, we can wait for them to meet on their own, or we can help them out," she said.

We all looked at each other and said, "Help them out," and then we all laughed.

"So how are we going help them out?" I asked.
