Big thank you to my beta hmmille you rock!
Stephanie M. owns the masterpiece I just like to play with the story and characters.
In my world, there wasn't much more than the sweet taste of a hot meal. I'd been living on the satisfaction of warm blood flooding my body for years. Now I was faced with a dilemma—human or animal? Just as my family had, I would be stuck sucking animal blood for the rest of my life. I was tired of not knowing what it would feel like to bite into a human. Almost all of them have done it, and now I wanted my turn.
I was out hunting another boring deer when an exotic new scent passed through my senses. I looked, listened, and smelled to see if any of my family was around before following the tasty smell. Once I was sure that the coast was clear, I took off running and came up fast on my new target: a human. With split second reflexes, I lept onto my prey and took him down easily, draining him quickly. The taste was unlike anything that had ever passed my lips before, and a tingling shot through my body as if I had been hit by a bolt of lightning. Once I finished feeding, I heard the sound of rustling leaves in the woods heading towards me, which clearly was not an animal. In reaction to possible danger, I felt my shield instinctively go up.
"I saw her right here. I don't understand. My vision was so clear." Alice was talking to Edward like she didn't see me.
"I can feel her—she's definitely here somewhere."
Edward looked right at me, so why couldn't he see me?
"Bella, Sweetheart? Where are you?"
"She's not far from here. I was able to feel her emotions right before we arrived." Jasper was talking to Edward and Alice when I realized they couldn't see me, and now Jasper couldn't detect my emotions. If they couldn't see me or sense me, I wondered if they would hear me if I spoke.
"I'm right here guys, can't you see me?" Let's see if my theory was correct.
"Bella, my love, you don't have to hide from me. I understand what you're going through."
Hmm…I could really screw with people if this new power is permanent. Let's see how far this invisibility goes.
I caressed Edward's cheek, and he shivered, which was not a typical reaction for a vampire. Oh, this new power was very interesting. I decided to let my shield down, and as I did my family stood in awe. "Come on, you didn't know I was standing here, that I was just invisible? You really thought I was hiding behind a tree or something?"
"Bella, I saw you standing over the human when we arrived. I didn't see you disappear." Huh, Alice usually had the most accurate visions. I wondered why she didn't see me disappear.
Hmm…this could be a good thing for me. I can be almost completely invisible to my prey, and no one would ever know. As long as I'm quiet and careful with my touch.
Alice was still talking to the guys, but I was busy planning how my life was going to change. Now I just had to get Edward on board with my idea. That shouldn't be too hard, right?
"Well, I think I'm going to head back to the house. Edward, will you come with me?" I gave him my best "I want to fuck you so hard" look, and the man crumbled in front of me.
"Hell yeah, I do. See you guys later. My wife and I, um, need to talk." There was a glint in his eyes that told me we wouldn't make it back to the house. "You'll take care of this?" he called over his shoulder to his siblings before he turned to me.
I took off running, since cat and mouse was one of our favorite games. Edward liked to chase and I obviously liked to be chased, well at least by my mate. All of a sudden, I was slammed into a tree, causing it to crash onto the forest floor. The rougher the better in our case, and this was getting rough fast.
"Do you know what it was like to see you through Alice's vision? I watched you become primal as you tracked, and then drained that human." As he spoke, I heard a sharp ripping sound and both of us were suddenly naked. Pure lust took over, before I could think I bit into his neck—my favorite place.
His tongue traced the shell of my ear as he whispered, "Can you feel how turned on I get when you give in to your true self? I can't get enough of you."
I hopped up and wrapped my legs around his waist, and his throbbing cock grazed me right where I was soaked for him. We fell to the ground, and our animalistic instincts took over. Within seconds, we were connected, and he was pushing into me harder than ever before. I scratched down his back, which caused him to slam in deeper.
"Oh, Edward, I need more. Bite me." He bit my neck and began sucking in some of the fresh human blood I had just taken in. The feeling of him drinking from me was so erotic that I pulled him from me, blood staining his lips. I kissed him, licking the blood from his tongue. Within minutes of this, we both climaxed with loud feral growls that neither of us had ever released before.
Once we arrived back at our house, we dressed and then headed over to the main house where our family was already waiting. I stopped Edward on the way to ask him the question that had been on my mind. "Edward, did you really like me taking a human instead of an animal?"
A ravenous look came to his eyes, and I then knew my husband was not as perfect as he outwardly appeared to be. "You have no idea how much I loved it. It will be our secret for now, but I plan on joining you the next time your instincts take over."
He grabbed me and started to pull at my clothes, but I stopped him. "Later, we need to face the rest of them first. But wait—what about my eyes? Are they red from the human blood?"
He looked at me with a devilish grin.
"No, they are a tinge darker, almost a slight violet color compared to the normal honey."
That's different too. I wondered what else about me was different? I gave him another passionate kiss before he led me into the house.
"Bella, Edward, please have a seat." Carlisle, the father figure of the coven, was standing in the room, flanked on either side by seated family members, making him the focus of the group.
They say that as a vampire, you're able to still feel some human emotions, and in that moment I felt like I was about to get grounded for misbehaving. Weird.
"I would like to discuss what happened tonight in more depth, but will save that for later. I wanted to talk to you as a family about a possible relocation. I have been offered a new position in Boston, and I'm thinking about taking it. This means you all have a decision to make."
A choice, ? It was like my ears perked up at the mention of a choice.
"You may either move with Esme and I, or branch off on your own. This does not mean you will not be a part of this family, but will have the opportunity to start your own lives separately if you choose." The knowing look that passed between Edward and I spoke a thousand words. He grinned at me and I smiled back, knowing that this was our chance to do what we wanted to do.
"Carlisle, I'm not really sure that's a good idea. I mean, from what I can see it will only rip the family apart. I don't want to lose any of you." Alice was sweet when she was concerned.
I loved her like my own flesh and blood. But come on, really? This was a chance to be on your own without someone hearing every little thought inside of your head all the time.
There was a shift next to me, and as I looked over at Edward, I knew he was about to share something clever. "I don't think this will be a big deal. I, for one, would like to be able to have my own time with my wife without having to worry about my family hearing every freaking thing we do."
"Amen, brother. I couldn't agree more." Oh, Emmett how I loved him. He was the big teddy bear of a brother that I never had as a human. He was usually my partner in crime, and tonight was no exception. He agreed with Edward since he and Rosalie were constantly on each other. They had to escape more often than we did if they wanted to get really wild. "I know Rosie here is loud and—" There was a loud thumping sound from Rosalie smacking him on the back of the head. "Geeze, baby, I know you like it rough, but not here."
Here we go, I needed to get this back on track so I can get the hell out of here.
"So basically, we just need to tell you what we want to do, and that's it?" All eyes were on me like I was a freak or something. "What? I really would like to get on with this conversation so I can leave and fuck my husband. Got a problem with that?" Whoa, where did that come from? I wonder if the human blood opened up a side of me I didn't know I had. I would have to test it out some more at a later time. I could feel Edward's eyes boring holes into my body.
All of a sudden, I realized that Jasper was getting uncomfortable, and he quickly grabbed Alice by the hand and left. Everyone else followed them out, except for Esme, Carlisle and Edward. "I would like to speak with you in my office, Bella."
Oh shit, Daddy C was pissed. Great, now I had to sit through a lecture on how to show respect to your family, blah, blah, blah.
Before I could move off of the couch, Edward grabbed my arm with a sense of possession. "Not without me. You will respect that I'm her husband, and I will be in on this conversation."
Oh, my man reeked of sexiness, and it sent chills down my spine. He was so getting special treatment tonight. Looking back at Carlisle, I saw deep concentration take over his facial expressions, indicating silent communication with his son. "Let's go, I'm tired of waiting." I abruptly got up and left the room at vampire speed, leaving them both sitting there in the family room.
Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, the two men arrived in Carlisle's office. I sat there waiting for the proverbial shit to hit the fan. "Bella, the reason I have asked you in here tonight is to ask about your new powers. I find it interesting that your shield has become something more than just a bubble of sorts."
Oh, now this was going to be a good conversation, at least I thought so. "Okay, so when I finished hunting and heard them coming, I put up my shield. But when they got there, they couldn't see me. As I let my shield down, they were able to see me again. That's it—not sure what happened to change it." If he thought I had any clue what was going on, he was sorely mistaken.
"Well, I would like to work with you on getting this new skilled mastered, and to see if we can understand why you are changing now."
Let me think—be watched like a hawk for any change in my powers or runaway with my husband, and live our lives together with reckless abandon. Gee, tough choice there doc, I don't think so. I plastered a sickening smile on my face, and let him know I would love to work with him. Ha!
When we got back to our house, we weren't completely in the door before the clothes were flying and innocent furniture was broken. Oh well, we won't be here much longer. Afterwards, we decided to take a minute to discuss the earlier conversation, but we were interrupted when I felt something happen. I wasn't sure if there was an intrusion on our discussion physically or mentally, so I put up my shield. I spoke quickly before anything could happen. "Edward, I want to leave and live my life with you. I love our family, but I want to experience being a vampire the right way—not being babysat all the time."
He looked at me, his mouth opening slightly and right before he could speak, someone entered our house. I looked at him, and placed my index finger against my lips so he knew to be quiet, since being invisible didn't keep people from hearing your voice.
"What the hell? I know they're here. I saw them, and then they disappeared. I just wanted to tell them I love them, and that I don't want them to be mad at me."
What was she talking about? I looked at Edward, and he just shrugged. Finally our visitors left, not realizing we were sitting on the floor the entire time they were in our home.
"Edward, I want to leave now. Let's pack up and go before we have anyone else bothering us."
He looked at me for a second then stood up. "What happened to my sweet angel that I could barely get to come out of her shell?"
I regarded him and point blank asked him a similar question. "What happened to my prim and proper Edward?"
That did it—he knew that both of us had changed and this was the turning point in our lives. "I will grab our account information and have my money transferred to our secret account. You go grab anything you really think you need."
I couldn't believe he was willing to do this, and one thing was stuck in my mind.
"Yes, my love"
"Were you not able to read Alice's mind a minute ago?"
"Now that you mention it, no."
Well that presents a small problem. I would need to watch this new ability so that I don't block his gift. It was something that came in handy more often than not.
I went back to packing and grabbed a few things that fit into a backpack. We each had one with our things to keep us covered until we settled down. We took one last look around the cottage we'd shared, smiled at each other, and ran off into the dark woods, leaving our family behind to wonder where we went.
Alright, what did you think? I would love to hear from you.
Just so you know I will not have a posting schedule for this chapter but I will post as soon as I have a chapter ready. It will be more than once a month.
Until next time...
