I hope you like this...
I don't own Twilight.
I straightened up, and looked towards Edward. He and the rest of his family were still at the top of the stairs, mouths ajar.
"Why didn't you tell me?" I asked. His faced visably relaxed.
"Your not going to scream and run away? We're vampires, Seraphina! We could hurt you." He told me.
I snorted and rolled my eyes, crossing my arms over my chest. "I've met worse." I said confidently.
"Like what?" Rosalie snapped.
"That would be telling." I teased. Then, seeing the distraction, reached out and snatched my bracelet from Emmett's meaty fists. "Ha!" I cried in childish victory. Emmett let out a small groan.
Edward was suddenly at the bottom of the stairs. The rest followed behind him. "You know what we are. We won't hurt you. But... What are you?" He asked.
I winced as thunder clapped loudly, undoubtedly a warning from Zues. "I can't tell you." I told him honestly, "But... If you guess - I suppose that I couldn't get in trouble."
Another clap of vicious thunder made me send a wary glance at the window. Lightening streaked across the sky.
"Oh cool! I want to go first!" Emmett grinned childishly. I raised an eyebrow at him, daring him to go on. "Elf!"
I barked a laugh. "Why on earth, under or above it would you think that?" I asked incediously.
"... You have a bow, and in Lord of the Rings they-"
"Alright, alright. No, I am not an elf. Here is a clue. I'm not Dyslexic, or ADHD, but I can't read modern languages or stay still for a long time." As if to prove my point, I tapped my fingers against my thigh, and shifted on my feet.
"What do you mean modern langauges?" Jasper asked. I sighed.
"This is hard to explain... Wait, I have a somewhat better idea. Edward, yesterday, I told you something. Something I loved." I looked him dead in the eye, ignoring another loud bang of thunder.
"Myths." Edward said. "The Ancient Greek Gods." Something like realisation sparked in his eyes, but Rosalie suddenly spoke up.
"You said you had met worse than vampires. So, what is worse?"
I gave a shaky laugh. "My father."
"What do you mean, your 'father'?" Carlisle asked. "Doctor Harrison?"
"I mean what I said, Doc. My real father. Hades."
The room went silent, before Rosalie let out a disbelieving snort. This time, the thunder was so loud and sudden, that I jumped and let out a small shriek.
"I really shouldn't be telling you this! I could get in serious trouble - the least you could do is believe me!" I blurted.
"Prove it then." She challenged. I swallowed, and nervously glanced out of the window. The whole sky was filled with twisted grey and black clouds. My gaze switched from the sky to her several times before I gave in.
"Oh fuck it. Sorry Zeus, don't zap me." Focusing on all of my energy, and took a deep breath, imagining heat, thinking of the Underworld. I jumped and fliped backwards. Everything seemed to be in slow motion as I was in the air. I focused on the oxygen around me, and the friction in my hands. By the time I landed, I had two flickering large flames, one surrounding each hand.
I was breathing heavily, with a shit-eating grin on my face. By the shocked looks on each of their faces, I had impressed them. "That is a Hell of a lot harder than it looks." I joked, shaking away the fire. Another, angry bang of thunder jolted through the ground, and trhough my viens, making me shake slightly. Zeus had hit the ground somewhere near.
"That was awesome!" Emmett hollared. I gave him a shaky smile.
"Are you alright, Seraphina?" Edward asked.
"I would love to say yes, but I kind of can't. I have to go." I told them.
"Why does this feel like I won't see you again?" He demanded.
"Because you probably won't." I whispered.
"Because I'm going home. To Hell. The Underworld. To Persephone and Hades. To my mother and father!"
"I'm coming with you!" He yelled.
"What? No!" I shouted.
"I'm going with you!"
"Because I love you!" For the third time, the room was as silent as the dead (Pun definately intended) and I stalked towards him, my eyes searching his face.
"Then I guess your coming." I told him, before standing on my toes, grabbing his shirt collar and crashing my lips to his.
I know it's short.
