This is my new story. I hope you like it, I have writers block on my other one ): which sucks because I really like that one. But here is this one.
It might seem like it goes really fast but this story is about how Bella deals with the situation. Not about how it happened. I really hope you enjoy this (:
This chapter is in Bella's pov (:
Chapter 1: Run.
I didn't know what I was running from. I just knew it was fast and it was after me. I didn't dare look back. I kept running as fast as I could. I tripped over a stump and cut my knee. I stopped just enough to look down at my bleeding knee. When I looked up anything the thing I was running from was right in front of me.
"Isabella, dear, you can't run from me." He said. He wasn't human. I blinked and he was right in front of me.
"Leave her alone." I heard another voice said. Then I heard it all again, the growling and the loud noises. I started shaking uncontrollably. The as quickly as it started, it stopped. I looked up to see a pale guy around my age. He was probably just as pale as the thing I was running from. That's when I realized that thing I was running from and this guy were the same.
"G-g-get away from me." I said, my voice shaking as well as the rest of my body.
"It's okay. I'm not gunna hurt you. I promise." This thing said.
"H-how do I know?" I said my voice breaking again. I couldn't let this thing get close to me. I didn't know exactly what it was, but I knew it was dangerous.
"I promise. Come on, I think that cut might need stitches. My dad's a doctor. He can help you then take you home." The thing said. I could tell he wasn't breathing. I let out a slow shaky breath.
"I don't have a home anymore." I said as I began to cry.
The creature didn't move.
"That monster killed my parents. I know you're just like him. I know you're not human." I said, still crying. We just stood there a little longer. I sank down on the ground and began to sob even harder. I cried because I would never see my parents again, I cried because I was scared, and I cried because my knee throbbed. I don't know how long I stayed the crying for. I felt the creature pick me up and put me on his back and we began to run. He ran so fast that only closed my eyes from a short time before we stopped and he sat me back down on the ground.
I looked all around me. We were a mansion in the middle of the woods. The mansion was 3 stories tall and it was white. I could tell from the outside that there was a glass wall that ran the length of the house. I also knew nobody would hear me scream.
"This is where we live." The creature said. I was still shaking, though I didn't know if it was from the cold or because I was scared.
"How many of you are there?" I asked. I was scared of his answer. I didn't know how to protect myself from them.
"Seven, counting myself. My name is Edward by the way." The creature, Edward, said.
"I'm Bella." I said simply as he opened the door. I took in the house. It was more beautiful on the inside.
"Carlisle, I need your help." Edward said in normal tone. Before we even got to the big black leather couch a man appeared. He looked young to be a dad.
"She fell while running from something and cut her knee…and she knows." Edward said. I looked between them, and then Edward ran out the door.
"Hi, I'm Carlisle, what your name?" Carlisle said very gently.
"Bella, Edward said I might need stitches." I said, still shaking.
Carlisle nodded his head. "Looks that way, let's go to my office."
I stood up and followed him down a hallway.
He opened a door on the right and we walked into a study. I sat down on the couch. It looked just like the one in the living room but smaller.
Carlisle got out the stuff he needed and began to stitch up my knee.
"Bella, can you tell me what happened, and everything you know." Carlisle said.
So I began to tell him.
"The day began like any other. I woke up and went to school. The day was fairly normal but I felt like something bad was gunna happen. When I got home, the front door was open and both of my parent's cars were in the driveway. That wasn't normal at all. I walked into the house slowly and that's when I heard it. I heard screams and growling. Then I saw it. He was pale and had red eyes. The sunlight was hitting him and he was sparkling. I knew then that he already killed my parents. He didn't ever see me but I knew he had heard me. I ran back outside and got in my truck and drove until I ran out of gas. He was right behind me the whole time. I jumped out of my truck and ran into the woods. I was only running for about ten minutes before I fell and Edward saved me." I was crying again as I finished my story.
Carlisle was just looking at me now. His eyes were a gold instead of Edwards black ones earlier.
"Where did you come from?" He asked me.
"Arizona." I said simply. I was too tired to talk anymore.
"Bella, why don't I show you to Edward's room so you can take a nap. He went out for a little while and I know he won't mind, and when you come down I promise we will explain everything to you, you will be able to meet the rest of the family. Oh and one more thing, you are very safe here. No one is gunna be able to get to you." Carlisle said as we walked up the stairs.
We walked all the way up and to the top and he stopped and opened the door on the left.
"See you in a little while." He said then closed the door as he left. I didn't even take in the room before I fell on the bed and went right to sleep. I sat up screaming. I looked around and didn't know where I was.
"Bella, shhhh, it's okay. I promise." I heard a voice say. It was the same voice that saved me from the woods.
"Edward?" I asked as I looked around, until my eyes landed on him.
"Yes it's me. Are you ready to go down stairs?" Edward asked. I nodded my head.
When we got down stairs and to the living room I saw all of them.
There was a big guy next to a model looking girl. Then there was a small girl with spiky hair sitting next to a guy who looked like he was in pain. Sitting next to Carlisle was a pretty woman who looked even younger than him.
"Bella come sit." Carlisle said. I did as I was told. Edward sat next to me.
"Now Bella, what we are gunna tell you, might scare you, and if it scares you to bad then I will take you to the local orphanage, but you are more than welcome to stay here and live with us." Carlisle said. I could tell he was the one in charge.
"Okay." I said as I nodded.
"Bella, we are vampires. The man you were running from was a vampire too." Carlisle said. I just sat there looking at him, while it processed. It made sense.
"What do you eat?" I asked and everybody chuckled lightly. I didn't think this was funny.
"We hunt overpopulated animals." The big guy said.
"Oh." Was all I could say.
"Okay, let me introduce everybody. The big guy is Emmett, he looks scary but he just a big softy at heart. The blonde sitting next to him is Rosalie, they are married. Then the short girl is Alice and next to her is Jasper, they are also married, then the lovely beautiful woman is Esme. She is my wife." Carlisle said. They all waved at me and I gave a small smile.
"How did Edward find me?" I asked. I was curious now as to how he did.
"Well, I can see the future, I was you running and falling in the woods and Edward was out hunting when he found you." Alice said. It still didn't make sense has to how he knew I was out there.
"I can read minds, and Alice let me know through hers. Expect I can't read yours." Edward said.
"I knew I was a freak." I mumbled. They all just looked at me.
"Bella, we tell you that we are vampires and you think you're the freak?" Rosalie asked me.
"Well, yes." Was all I said. They just laughed.
"Now Bella, we want to ask you something now." Esme said.
"Okay, go for it." I said, nothing would surprise me now.
"Well, while you were taking a nap we took a vote and we would like to know if you want to live here with us." Carlisle said.
I thought this over in my head. I didn't have any family I didn't think anyone would miss me. Even though I was scared outta my mind I knew I would be safe here.
