My Name Is Swan … Bella Swan
"Mama, do you have to leave tonight?" my daughter, Jamie, asked.
Oh wait! Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Mary Alice Brandon, but I go by Alice. I'm nineteen years old, and a single mother of my wonderful little girl, Jamie. Many people would ask me how I could look at my child after the way she was conceived. When I was fifteen, I was walking home after my friends ditched at a party. Long story short, I took a wrong turn and got raped in an alley. All I remember after that, was waking up in my friend's house. Kate said that she heard a knock on her door, and when she looked at her porch, there I was wrapped in a blanket. She immediately pulled me inside and took care of me during the entire night.
I told my parents when I got home the next morning, and they didn't believe me! They said I was just wanted to be the center of attention, and that they had no time for my little games! So a couple of weeks go by, and I noticed that I started to feel funny. The next morning I ran straight into my bathroom and started to puke my guts up. I asked Kate if she would take me to the hospital, and that's when my world got turned upside down. It turns out that I was three weeks pregnant. When my parents found out, they kicked me out of the house and Kate and her parents offered me a place to stay. The only problem was that she moved two months ago, so now I'm living in a crappy apartment trying to provide as much as I can for my daughter. I do have a job, but it's working at a strip joint in Port Angeles. I hate working there even though it's only been a week, but the pay is just enough for me to get by.
"Yes, Sweetheart, I have to go, but your going to have to come with me because your babysitter canceled." I replied.
I really didn't want to bring her with, but what was I supposed to do? I cant just leave her here by herself, she's only four years old for goodness sakes! I called my boss, Angela, to see if I could bring Jamie, and she said that she could just chill out in the back room. I just hope that no unwanted visitors stumble across her back there.
"Okay, mommy." she said. She was already dressed up in some blue jeans and purple t-shirt that had ruffles on the arms. I was dressed up in a pair of sweat pants, a hoodie sweatshirt, and a pair of furry loafers.
I grabbed her jacket, picked her up, and walked outside to my old, beat up, 1956 Chevy truck. I strapped her into her car seat, and took off towards the club. It took me about twenty minutes to get there, and even though the truck is insanely slow, I was early. I carried Jamie with my gym bag slung on my shoulder. When I got inside, I noticed that everything was set up for a theme night. I saw Angela behind the bar, and walked over to her.
"Hey, Boss, are we having a theme night tonight?" I asked.
"Yeah we are, but there's also a surprise for tonight that I haven't told anyone about yet. So after you go put Jamie to sleep, can you round up all of the girls from the locker room for me?" Angela replied. I nodded and headed back towards the spare room that Angela keeps for herself. She explained to me that after long night working in the club, that she's too tired to drive home so she sleeps in her spare room.
I walked into the room and set Jamie down on the bed, noticing that she was already asleep. I laughed quietly seeing how she just sprawled out on the bed. I positioned the pillows so that they were around her, so that she wouldn't fall off of the bed. Then I took her special, wolf blanket out of my bag and tucked her in it. I have no idea why, but she's absolutely infatuated with the animal. I stood up and started to make my way towards the door.
"Mommy!" I heard Jamie cry out, and I turned around to look at the bed. I felt my heart break when I saw her scared, wide eyes, with her hand outstretched towards me. I ran back over to her and pulled her to my chest.
"Shh, Jay. I got you, Sweetheart. No one's going to hurt you." I cooed to her. I stroked her silky, shoulder length, black hair and rubbed her back. She looked up at me with tired, sapphire blue, eyes before falling back asleep. Luckily she looked exactly like me when I was little. She literally looks like an exact replica of me, with no trace of her father in her what so ever. I tucked back into bed, and went to gather up all of the girls. Once I told them that there was a surprise for the night, it was like a stampede! Everyone ran into the lobby, where Angela was waiting.
"Well ladies, tonight we're having Vegas night. Not only that, but we have some very classy individuals coming here to help you guys have a wonderful night. So there are some very pretty dresses that our guests have picked out especially for you. If you would put those on, they should be arriving in ten minutes." Angela finished, causing the girls to squeal in excitement.
We went back into the locker and saw a wide variety of dresses to choose from. Everyone was picking and choosing there dresses, when one of the girls called out her name.
"Hey Alice, I found the perfect dress for you!" the blonde bombshell named Rosalie said. She grabbed my hand and dragged me towards it.
When I saw it, my mouth dropped in awe of its beauty. (AN: picture on profile except the bow on it is red in the story) It was paired up with a white gold crescent moon, and a pair of black stiletto heals. I quickly changed into my outfit, and it felt like a second skin. Somehow when the light reflected off of the necklace, it highlighted my eyes wonderfully. My hair was in it's usual spiky disarray.
I took a look around at the other girls, and noticed that every dress came with a special piece of jewelry. But every single piece of jewelry had a crescent moon on it. Rosalie got a pair of earrings, Leah got a charm bracelet, Emily had a ring, and Kira had gotten a choker. We finished getting our make up on, every going light tonight instead of the usual heavy amount that we put on, on a regular night. We heard Angela shout for us to come back out of the locker room.
When we went back into the club, I heard all the girls gasp including myself. The entire room was set up like Vegas. They only had three different games set up, but the décor around the room looked like Vegas at night. The whole room was bright and enticing. All of a sudden the spotlights shined on the center of the stage, and their standing before us were five people. The first four were very sexy men, but the one the end caught my eye.
It was a girl who was about six feet in height compared to my small form of five feet. She was wearing black slacks with a black blouse that was rolled up to her elbows. The black blouse clung to her body showing off her muscle. She almost looked line a feline, because the muscle was lean and wiry like cables. She had on a red vest over it with a black tie. Her body was very tomboyish in frame, but you could still see her feminine curves. She has black hair that's down to her shoulders, with crystal blue eyes to match. And her lips cupid's bow lips were pink like cotton candy, making them look so kissable. I never thought of a woman in this way, but she was so damn sexy that it's hard not to do so.
"Hello, Ladies, we are known as Bella and The Card Sharks. Tonight instead of you guys serving us, we're here to serve you and give you a wonderful time. I'll hand the mic over to our fearless leader, and she'll tell you all about who we are." said a very tall man. He was very burly like a bodybuilder. He had short black hair, and green eyes. He handed the mic over to the woman that caught my eye.
"Well first off, let me introduce you to everyone. On the very end we have the Prince of Spades, Jacob. Next to him is the King of Spades, Paul. Standing next to Paul, is the King of Clubs, Sam. Beside me is the King of Diamonds and my brother from another mother, Emmett. And I'm Bella, but I'm better known as the King of Hearts." I swear I felt myself melt when I heard her voice.
"Now I came up with this group, because I was so tired of seeing women being beaten and raped. I would know, because my mom and I never had a great life. So I started this group in order to show women how a real relationship and friendship should be. So I came up with five very important rules." she said then tossed the mic to Jacob.
"Never touch a woman without permission." he said and then passed it over to Paul.
"Always be aware of their feelings, and don't keep secrets from them." he said and passed the mic down the row.
"Respect a lady at all times, and show them how a real gentleman behaves."
"Defend a woman at all times, even if it means dying for them." Emmett said and handed the mic back over to Bella.
"Do not treat them like a possession. Treat them with the utmost respect and courtesy, like the queens they are." she finished.
"All right, ladies. As you can see you have special pieces of jewelry that cam with your outfits. One of these guys has the same piece of jewelry on. Whoever has the same piece, is going to be your gentleman for tonight. As they said before, they are here to serve you and make your night amazing." Angela finished, causing the girls to go find their match.
I saw that everyone was matched except for me and Bella. Rose was paired with Emmett, Jacob with Leah, Paul and Kira, and Sam with Emily. I felt my heart beat faster as Bella approached me. She bowed to me and then outstretched her hand with the palm face up. I placed my right hand in hers, and she lifted it to her lips and kissed it. The blush on my face was able to rival her red vest.
"Hi, my name is Bella Swan." she said, still holding my hand. She smiled down at me with her blue eyes, causing all coherent thought to leave my mind.
"My n-name is A-Alice Brandon." I replied, cursing myself for stuttering. She probably thinks I'm an idiot now. I looked back up at her and saw a gentle smile cross her features as she gently stroked her thumb across the top of my hand.
"It's a pleasure to meet you, Ms. Alice. What would you like for me to do for you tonight, since you're the one calling all the shots?" she asked.
Goodness gracious this girl's voice is the epitome of sex. It's low and husky compared to my soprano voice. Now that I could get a better look at her, she has four earrings on each ear. She has one stud and two small hoops in the lobes, and one small hoop at the top of her ears. She had a couple of freckles on her face, and she has a beautiful tan.
"Um, why don't we grab a couple of drinks and get to know each other a little more." I suggested. She nodded in agreement, and we headed over to the bar. I got a bottle of water, and surprisingly she got the same. We found a table to sit at. We hit a moment of awkward silence, but it didn't last long.
"So Ms. Alice, where'd you come from?"
"I came from Forks actually, but moved out here two months ago." I saw her eyes light up at the mention of Forks.
"Really, I live just outside of Forks. How old are you?" I got a little bit apprehensive at this question, because both Leah and I are the only nineteen year olds that work here.
"I'm nineteen," I saw her eyes go wide before going back to their original size. "What about you?"
"I'm twenty two. If you don't mind me asking, what' re you doing working here if you're so young?" Well, I might as well tell her the entire story.
"Well, I got pregnant when I was fifteen and my parents didn't accept it, so they kicked me out. Luckily my friend Kate and her family welcomed me with open arms, but she moved away two months ago. So now I'm stuck in a nasty, old, apartment trying to provide for me and my daughter by working here." I replied, a couple of tears falling from my eyes, remembering how harsh my parent's words were when they told me to leave.
I saw anger, and compassion flash across her face when I told her about my life. She slowly reached out her hand and softly wiped away my tears with her thumb. I didn't even realize that I was leaning into her touch, until she pulled her hand away and my head dipped a tiny bit. She reached into a pocket on her vest, and pulled out a handkerchief with a heart sewn into one corner. She handed it to me, and I wiped away the rest of my tears. Good thing I was wearing water proof makeup.
"So you have a daughter?" she asked, trying to move onto a happier note.
"Yes, her name is Jaime, and she's the light of my life." I answered grinning like a fool. It was an impulse ever since she was born. I could never stop smiling whenever I thought of her. I looked back over at Bella, and she was just staring at me. It was like she froze up, so I waved my hand in front of her face, bringing her back to reality.
"I'm sorry, it's just that your smile is absolutely breathtaking." she said. Eventhough it was kind of cheesy, it still made me blush a hundred shades of red. I uttered a quiet 'thank you' before taking another sip of my water.
"If you don't mind me asking, what happened to you and your mom?" I saw her take a deep breath in before exhaling slowly.
"Well, my mom, Renee, was married to a guy named, Charlie. Basically he was the chief of police until he got fired from drinking on the job. Anyways when I was born, I was born with a male part also. Charlie was so disgusted, that he wouldn't even get near me when I was little. When I was five the abuse started happening." She started to choke up on the end, so I quickly reached out for her hand and clasped it into mine.
"He would beat me up while my mom was watching, and then go to her after he was done with me. I tried to protect her as much as I could, but it wasn't enough. When I was six, I was coming home from school one day and saw a whole bunch of police officers outside. It turns out that Charlie shot her and then got shot by an officer while trying to escape containment. After that, I lived in an orphanage for a couple of months, until Emmett and his parents adopted me. They accepted me with open arms, knowing fullly what I was already. I couldn't ask for a better family to live with after all the shit I went through." she finished.
I just wanted to pull her into a bear hug and take away all of her pain. I think it's a coincidence how two people that came from broken families in the past, could end up meeting each other and get everything that they needed to talk about off their chest. I don't know how, but this girl has already made fall for her a little bit.
"I'm so sorry, Bella." I said quietly.
"It's no problem really." she replied back. I looked over and saw all of the girls crowded around the Texas Hold'em table, and decided to go over there with Bella following me. She pulled out my seat for me, and pushed me back in.
"Hey Bells, we're playing strip poker, you want to join?" Emmett asked wiggling his eyebrows in a suggestive manner. She laughed and nodded in agreement.
"Okay, here are the rules. The girls are going to play the hands, and we're allowed to help them out. But if they lose a hand or fold then we lose an article of clothing not them." Jacob explained. Damn! I get to see what Bella's body looks like too! Tonight is my lucky night.
Emmett dealt out the cards, hand after hand. After ten hands, it was down to Bella and Emmett since Jacob,Paul, and Sam got knocked out. Bella was down to her blouse and pants, while Emmett was just down to his pants. I looked over and saw Rosalie practically drooling over his muscles. We got our cards while Rosalie laid down the flop, turn, and river cards. As it turns out we got nothing, so Bella just told me to fold. Emmett motioned for her to take off her shirt, to which she complied to.
And I was hit with sight of her beautiful body. She had broad shoulders, and her chest was slightly different. I guess she really worked out hard, cause it didn't look like she had breasts, instead it looked like she had medium sized pectorals with a little bump to them. What surprised me though, was that she had her nipples piecered with some hoops that had a ball in the middle of them. I finished looking at her chest and let my eyes wander down to her stomach. I guess the other girls were thinking the same thing that I was thinking, cause their mouths dropped open. I just wanted run my hands across them forever. They were so taught that you could see all the valleys that they created. They also had a kind of wiry cable effect that just made her look so sexy.
"Looks like someone is diggin' on Bells over here." Emmett said wiggling her eyes at me. Everyone laughed as I once again turned so red I almost looked purple. I felt a little bit uncomfortable, but it vanished when Bella reached down and grabbed my hand. It was a very comforting gesture that helped me relax.
"Ready to put your money where your mouth is, Emmett?" Bella asked as she started to shuffle the cards.
"Bring it!" he replied. Bella's mouth settled into a cocky little smirk.
"If I win, you buy me a new motorcycle. But if you win, I'll give you the keys to the Bugatti." she replied. I looked over at Emmett and chuckled at what is saw. He looked like a kid in a candy store the way his eyes were shining.
"You are so on!" he said. They both shook hands, and Bella dealt the cards. Bella motioned for me to not look at the cards, and I just looked up at her in confusion. She just smiled down at me and looked back over at Emmett. He had an evil grin on his as he showed his cards to Rosalie. She grinned back up at him and looked back our way.
"Well Bells, it looks like you owe me your keys." he said and threw his cards down on the table. He had a straight flush in hearts. Bella's smirk grew wider if possible.
"Emmett, haven't you learned by now that they don't call me the King of Hearts for nothing." Emmett's eyes grew wide in horror.
"That's right, Emmy Bear." Bella said and threw down her cards. She hit a Royal Flush! I squealed and gave Bella a hug not realizing that her shirt was still off. She wrapped her arms around me, and for some reason we just fit together perfectly. Her skin was so soft and warm. I finally came back to my senses and pulled away. I noticed that not only was I blushing, but she was as well! I guess she did feel something for me.
When Emmett and Bella finished redressing, I found out that Bella and I had one a prize. I was apparently invited with her to go eat at one of her adoptive parent's five star restaurant. I accepted her offer and we set a date for Monday, because I had the next three weeks off. Angela was closing down for the holidays, so I didn't have to go back to work until the week after New Years.
We played a couple of more games, and then cleaned up the club. All of the girls were catching a ride home with their partner, while I got redressed in my clothes that I wore here. When I came back out, I saw Bella still standing there like she was waiting for me. She motioned for me to go over to her, and I did.
"Ms. Alice, I know we just met, but I was wondering if you would like to eat dinner over at my place." she asked shyly.
"Okay, but I need to go pick up something from my house first." I replied.
"Would you mind if I drive you to your house, then over to mine?"
"No, but I have to have someone pick up my truck and take it to my house."
"That's okay, I can have someone drop it off for you, if you want."
"Alright, but I have to go get Jamie out of the backroom. Could you put her car seat in your car?" I asked. She smiled at me and nodded. I handed her my keys, and then went into the backroom. I picked Jamie up and carried her outside, making sure that she was bundled up in her blanket.
When I got outside, I saw Bella standing next to a black Escalade. I handed Jamie over to her carefully so that she could stick her in her car seat. I watched as she put Jamie into her car seat softly, and then take her blanket and tucked it in around her. Bella helped me into my seat, before shutting my door for me, and then got into her seat. We pulled out of the parking lot and headed off towards my apartment.
"She's a beautiful little girl, Alice." Bella said looking in the rear view mirror at Jamie.
"Thank you." I replied back. Bella turned on her radio and put in a cd. "She Will Be Loved" by Maroon 5 started to play throughout the car.
"This is my favorite song." Bella and I said at the exact same time.
By the time the song ended we were at my apartment. We got out of the car, with me carrying Jamie. When we got up to my apartment, I saw Bella narrow her eyes at the key hole. I didn't see anything wrong with it and tried to walk inside. Bella held me back though, and opened the door. I saw that the lock was broken, and I got a little worried. Bella motioned for me to stay behind her and when she turned on the light, there was a guy sitting on my couch. If I didn't know any better, I would've said that he was waiting for me to come home.
He looked over at us and an evil smirk appeared on his face. It was the kind of smile that made people cringe in fear. I felt Bella tighten her grip on my arm and pull me closer to her. She effectively shielding me from the man's sight. I felt my fear increase as he got up and walked closer to us.
"Well if it isn't, Bella Swan." he said, his voice sending shivers down my spine.
"What the hell are you doing here, James." she growled.
"This girl's parents owe us some money, so the Boss told me to come and kidnap her." I felt my heart stop in my chest when he said this. First of all my parents didn't want me, and second of all, if they were going to use me as a bargaining chip, then I was surely going to die.
"You're going to have to go through me then if you want her." she replied.
"I like those odds." he said and rushed straight at Bella. She let go of my arm so that she could block his punch, as I stood in the corner of the wall frozen in fear. She blocked the punch, and he came straight back at her with a roundhouse kick. She ducked under it and slammed her fist into his stomach causing him to hunch over. She grabbed the back of his head to hold it in place as she slammed her knee into his face. He fell backwards knocked out on the floor.
"Alice, I need you to get all the essentails that you want and pack them up. You're not staying here anymore. You're going to come live with me and my parents until I know it's safe for you to be out on your own again." she said quickly. I nodded at her and shakily made my way towards my room and packed up everything that I wanted and needed. I packed it all up into a suitcase, and Bella carried it out and stuck it her trunk while I put Jamie back in her car seat. She peeled out of the parking lot, and raced off towards her house.
"What happened back there?" I panicked.
"James is part of the Volturi's mafia. My family and his family are constanly fighting against each other trying to run each other out of the state."
My eyes went wide when she told me this. I heard all about the Volturi's and how cruel they were. The past three murders that happened here were because of them. The people were brutally murdered and were branded with their logo. With this being said, then Bella must be apart of the Cullen family. They worked with the police to get them out of Washington for good.
"Then you must be apart of the Cullen family." I said and she nodded. She didn't talk for the rest of the car ride. She ended up pulling into the driveway of a mansion. She grabbed the suitcase, while I grabbed Jamie, who was just waking up from her nap.
"Where are we momma?" she asked with sleep still laced in her voice.
"It's not safe at the apartment anymore, so we're going to stay at my friend Bella's house for a while, okay." I said. She put her head into the crook of my neck and left it there. Bella and I walked up the front steps and knocked on the door. A short woman with caramel, brown, hair, who was still taller than me answered the door.
"Isabella Marie Cullen, why are you late for dinner!" she yelled. She looked past Bella and saw me standing beside her with Jamie in her arms. Concern flashed in her eyes, and she quickly motioned for us to come inside. She led us to the kitchen and added three more chairs to the kitchen table where five other people were sitting. I recognized Emmett and Rosalie, but the other three I didn't know. I saw a bronze haired boy holding hands with the blonde guy sitting next to him. And at the head of the table sat a handsome blonde haired man. The woman went to go sit next to him as Bella pulled out my chair again so that I could sit down. I sat Jamie down next to me as Bella sat down on the other side of me.
"I was late for dinner Mom, because when I was taking Alice home we ran into James from the Volturi." Bella's mom gasped and the man sitting beside her eyes widened.
"He said that her parents owed them money, and that they were going to kidnap her. So I fought him off and brought her here for safety. I don't want her to go back to her apartment until I know it's safe." she finished.
"Well then Alice is allowed to stay for however long she would like. She'll sleep in your room Bella." Bella agreed in a heartbeat.
"Alice let me introduce to the family. At the head of the table is Carlisle, next to him is his wife, Esme. The other blonde guy is, Jasper and his boyfriend, Edward. And everyone this is Alice and her daughter Jamie." Bella finished. We all said our hi's and hello's to each other and ate the dinner that Esme had prepared. When we all finished up, I noticed that it was already ten at night. Bella led me upstairs into her room.
Her room was huge. She had a king sized bed and two bookshelves filled up to the brim with a wide variety of books, cd's, and movies. She had a big flat screen mounted on her wall right above her table that had a labtop on it. There was a door that led outside to balcony, and door that connected to a bathroom. She also had a fireplace against the far wall with a couch in front of it. The room was amazing, but the designs on the walls are what made it beautiful. The walls were painted as a forest in the light of a full moon. There was a rocky cliff where a wolf was standing on it howling to the moon.
"Your suitcase is in the closet in the bathroom. You can go ahead and change into your pajamas and go to sleep in the bed. I'm going to put my pj's on and go make my bed on the couch." she said and made her way over to her dresser.
"Bella, I don't want to kick you out of your own bed. Jamie and I would barely take up any space on your gigantic bed. I don't think I'm going to get much rest anyways after what happened tonight in the apartment." she nodded sadly and went to go change in a different closet.
I sat Jamie down on the bathroom counter, and changed her into her pj's first before getting situated into mine. I put on a pair of silk pj bottoms and a tank top. I carried Jamie back out and saw Bella starting a fire in the fireplace. I situated Jamie in bed, and then turned back to see if Bella needed any help. She was wearing a pair of black sweat pants, and a loose fitting t-shirt. She walked back over to the bed and pulled down the covers and settled herself down, the fire going full blast filling the room with its warmth.
I scooted into bed beside her, putting me in the middle. We got settled into our positions for tonight. Bella was laying on her back with her arms behind her head. I was curled up around Jamie, who's back was to me and was cuddled up to a pillow. Bella pulled the covers up around us and turned the light switch off by her side of the bed, causing all of the lights to turn off. I was scared about what happened earlier tonight, but Bella protected me and made me feel safe. Hell, she even offered me her home for me to stay in, and here I am sleeping in her bed! Everything seems to be going fine right now, but I cant help feeling that I'm being hunted.
