Graduation finally came. I managed to get through it all with the help of Angela, Ben, Renee, Phil, my dad Charlie and of course Jake and the pack.
The Cullen's had left 4 months previously, without even a good bye. Edward left me alone, deep in the woods, he said he didn't want me, and he was sorry to have led me on.
With a smirk he had said, "Don't worry too much, Bella, I think someone will eventually find you out here." He laughed a little, no doubt at the look on my face, which probably resembled a mask of complete horror.
"Goodbye pet, you'll never here from any of us again." He had told me, then he was gone.
Jacob and Sam found me with hypothermia a little after 10 hours later and rushed me to the hospital.
To say Charlie was furious would be a bit of an understatement. He wanted to quit his job and set out a man hunt to kill one Edward Cullen. But I managed to talk him out of it, telling him I needed him at home, to please just not do it, and to just stay and take care of me.
Of course, he agreed I am my daddy's baby girl after all.
After graduation Jacob came and took me to one of the pack's bonfires, I had nothing better to do and we had a good time.
My parents and Phil were just glad to get me out of the house for a while. Renee and Phil had agreed to stay in the spare room so I could spend extra time with my mom before they went back to Arizona.
It was around midnight when Jacob brought me home.
Nothing could have prepared me for what we found when we got there, the house was on fire, every room blazing, fire and smoke billowing out the windows, and doors.
I tried desperately to get to the house, but Jacob held me back. I collapsed to my knees, Jake still right beside me. Hearing fire truck sirens, he told me he had to phase to let Sam know what was going on, he told me he could smell leech everywhere and it wasn't a scent he recognized.
He stayed close by, only going into the woods a little ways, there was an earth shattering howl, and then he was back with me.
Jacob took me in his arms while I cried, and we waited together as the pack arrived and minutes later the police and fire department were on my street too. Half the town's population turned up as well, of course. They're just a bunch of nosy idiots after all.
The police informed me that they found three bodies, and were presuming they were my parents, but the coroner still needed prove it was them. Luckily Charlie's second in command knew who Charlie's dentist was, and I was able to give them the name of Renee's and Phil's in Arizona.
Billy and Jacob asked me to stay with them, and since I had nowhere else to go, I did. Billy helped me arrange the funerals, but because of the fire we had them cremated, which only made sense.
Billy was a very good friend and he felt the need to care for his best friend's only daughter. He took care of the legal stuff with me, the changing of properties names and title transfers, the filing of insurance forms.
It turned out that Charlie had a million dollar life insurance policy for me and that I was the soul benefactor for Renee and Phil too. With the insurance money and the combined bank accounts, I ended up with roughly three million dollars after the funeral expenses were taken care of, plus I got Renee's house and cars too.
I gave Billy and Jake Phil's truck; a white 250 HD Chevy, 4x4, six speed, diesel and Renee's car, a red Eclipse.
Thinking ahead, I put a million dollars into a savings account to draw interest.
Billy was a bit surprised when I turned up with my new luggage set, and an envelope from the bank. He just sat there looking confused, I smiled and said, "Papa come in here, we need to talk." He looked cautious due to my statement, but I just smiled again and poured the contents of the envelope out on the table.
I wanted to make sure my papa-as Billy called himself-was taken care of, and I had paid a visit to the bank, everything was taken care of instantly although, normally, the bank wasn't allowed to do that.
However, with recent events and the president of the bank knowing Billy and Charlie very well, everything was sorted out for me. I was assured that Billy and Jacob would be well taken care of financially, with my arrangement.
"Papa, I've been to the bank and I've set up an account in your and Jacob's names." I told him, as I slid the papers in front of him. He reached forward and opened the little account book, his mouth fell open and his eyes went wide, I couldn't help but laugh at his expression. I reached over the table and closed his mouth for him with a giggle before putting my small pale hands over his large dark ones, and giving them a little squeeze.
"The president of the bank did me a favor and set up this savings account for you, there's half a million dollars in the account and he assured me that you and Jacob can live very comfortably off the interest. You'll receive a bank card in the mail in about a week." I smiled a small smile at him.
"I wanted to make sure you were well taken care of, because I'm leaving, I need a fresh start and I can't do that without knowing my Papa is going to be taken care of!" Billy squeezed my hands, he knew I needed to do this, so he just nodded in understanding.
"I also went to the cell phone place and bought us two phones with unlimited talk and text. I figured with Jake running around naked most of the time he wouldn't have any place to put a phone, well … at least no place I would want to know about." I shuddered a little while Billy laughed at me.
"I see your point daughter, but please keep in touch. Where are you going?"
"I am going to go to Arizona to sell Renee's house, and then I was thinking I could just take it as it goes from there. What do you think papa?"
"I think if this is what you need then you should do it. When do you leave?"
"My plane leaves in three hours, so while I pack up my clothes and stuff you order pizza and call Jacob to come and say goodbye to his sister." I smiled at that because Jacob had always wanted more, but he finally accepted my request to be just friends.
So I packed, Jake came home, we ate, they took me to the airport and then we said our goodbyes.
After going to Arizona and taking care of business, I decided I would go on to Texas. I didn't tell Billy where I was going, just that I wanted to roam around for a while, he wished me well and I set off for the airport.
I had just checked into a La Quinta Inn suite and put my things away when I decided to walk down the street to a café for a bite to eat. It was almost dark and I wanted to hurry so I wasn't out too late after dark in a strange city.
You know me if there's danger around it usually finds me.
I ordered myself a burger, fries, and a coke, I ate and left quickly for the hotel. I was about half way back when a group of men came out of nowhere, three of them in front of me and two behind.
"Fuck" I spat.
And trouble just found me!
"Where you headed too little darlin'?" One of slightly larger men asked me.
Great it's Port Angles all over again.
"Home, excuse me." I answered and headed towards the other side of the street. There was a chorus of laughter and then they came after me.
"Come back little darlin', we just want to play for a while."
"Shit." I whispered to myself and started to run, but they surrounded me and my only escape was down an alley beside me, so I took what looked like my only way out. Their footsteps thundered behind me, but I didn't dare turn around, I was too afraid I might fall.
Then I saw two of the men that approached me on the side walk at the end of the alley way, I knew then that it was the end and I wouldn't be able to get away from them, I just hoped they would leave me alive when they were done with me.
"Now now, suga, where did ya think you were goin?"
They stalked closer to me, and I panicked, pressing myself against the alley wall as if I could disappear through it, although I knew it would never happen.
"Hey, Kenny, I think we found fresh meat this time, she looks no older than twenty. I want first go at this one, you got to go first last time."
Oh, God please help me!
"Sure Jeff you can play with her first."
"Hello, little darlin." Jeff cooed to me as he came forward and stroked my cheek, I flinched away.
"Now don't be like that, baby." He cooed again, placing a hand on either side of my head, my body began to shake with fear.
"Please just let me go." I whispered as he grinned evilly at me.
"Oh, I will when I'm done with you, baby." He said as he pressed his body into mine and pinned me against the wall with his weight.
I let out a blood curdling scream, only to get a sneer from Jeff as he slammed my head into the brick wall behind me, hard.
"Shut up, bitch." He hissed as he smashed my head into the wall a couple more times.
"Easy, Jeff, don't kill her till after we've all had our turn." I didn't know which one spoke, as I was now fighting to stay conscious, my eyes trying to roll back in my head.
Then I heard a new voice, soft as silk, like an angel.
"Well well boys, what do we have here? Oh! The poor little angel…now you know you have to pay for making her bleed." I could hear the men cussing.
"Who the fuck do you think you are?"
However, before the words were completely out of their mouths, they started grunting and screaming before all was quiet again.
I was slumped against the wall of the alley, still fighting to stay awake, I knew I had to try to get out of there, I just couldn't get my body to cooperate. I heard the angel's voice again and felt his hand wipe the hair away from my face.
"My my, little beauty, they really did a number on you didn't they?" I whimpered a little and tried to open my eyes to focus on the angel that had decided to save me.
When my vision had cleared enough so I could see his face, I saw his blood red eyes and knew exactly what he was.
With a gasp I whispered, "Vampire!"
Before I could focus on anything else, I felt the wind blowing past me and knew he was running with me.
"So you know what I am huh?" I was barely conscious but managed to whisper out an answer.
"Hmm, what to do with you then? I know! This is your lucky night. You get to go home with me suga. All jokes aside ya have a nasty head wound and you're losing quite a bit of blood. You'll die soon if I don't do somethin. I got to get the bleeding stopped and since I live alone and you already know what I am you'll come live with me."
The wind ceased and I heard what sounded like a door opening, I could tell we were in a lit room, and I could feel softness under my body as he had laid me on a bed.
"You're home now darlin." With that he kissed my lips softly before I heard the wind again as he rushed around the room. I felt him pressing and wrapping my head and a painful stinging before I was surrounded by darkness.
I quickly cleaned the girl's wounds and I gave her a shot to knock her out for a while, before stitching up her head so it would quit bleeding. It was a good thing I had some medical training.
Once I got her wounds taken care of, I ripped her shirt off as she was covered in blood, her bra was stained red and I could see where the blood had ran into the waist band of her jeans.
"Well shit!" Now I had to strip her down completely and I didn't have anything for her to wear.
Guess she'll have to make do with some of mine for a while.
I went to the bathroom and filled a bucket with warm water, collected some towels, wash cloths and a bottle of shampoo. I also found a plastic bowl for rinsing her hair of blood.
Don't know why the hell I had a bow in the first place!
After washing the blood from her hair, I stripped her of the rest of her clothes and washed her the best I could before I covered her with the bed sheet and blanket. I sat back and got a better look at her now that she was clean, I decided right then that I was defiantly keeping her.
I went through the pockets of her jeans, and found a cell phone with only one other number in it that read 'papa'. I had found her card key to her hotel room up the street from where those fuckers had her pinned against the wall.
Oh well they won't do it to anyone else. I smirked as I recalled my earlier dinner.
Once I had her pockets emptied I went to the kitchen and grabbed some lighter fluid before I headed to the back yard to the burn barrel. Tossing the clothes in, I soaked them in lighter fluid and set them on fire, then made my way back into the house.
I decided to check out the stuff I found in her pockets.
Her driver's license read 'Isabella Marie Swan'. I decided to have my man make up some new IDs and other legal documents, and made the call to Mr. Marsh to get the papers ordered right away.
Pulling out my phone I flicked through my contacts list to the number I needed and called Mr. Marsh's home phone number, I knew that at ten at night he is already at home. He was quite the family man, with a wife and daughter he absolutely adored. I had a certain amount of respect for a family man, even if his business isn't always legal. The man had always done good by me, but I guessed since I scared the shit out of him he was afraid to mess anything up.
Ahh…one of the perks of being a man eating vicious vampire, I thought.
The phone rang 4 times before he picked up.
"Hello Mr. Marsh it's Peter Whitlock." I smirked to myself as I heard his breathing pick up over the phone.
"Ah, Mr. Whitlock what can I do for you at this time of night?"
"I need papers. Are you ready?"
"Yes Sir, I'm ready!"
"I need a marriage certificate, birth certificate, driver's license, and credit cards-Oh and Mr. Marsh?"
"I need them in two days. Understand?" I spoke in my menacing voice, which I knew intimidated him even more because I could hear his heart rate increase.
No wonder the poor man is starting to lose his hair. I do keep him on his toes.
"Yes Sir, Mr. Whitlock. What names need to go on this, Sir?"
"Isabella Marie Whitlock: age 20, address 145 Oak Wood Drive, zip code 41875, and date of birth September 13th, 1989."
"What needs to go on the Marriage Certificate?"
"Isabella Marie and Peter Wayne, marriage date May 10th of this year, anything else just make it up. Use the photo from her registered driver's license and make the new one a Texas license. Got it?"
"Yes Sir, Mr. Whitlock. I'll call as soon as everything is done."
"Mr. Marsh, make it top priority."
"Yes Sir, I'll clear my schedule until it's done."
"Good man, until then." I hung up the phone before he could say another word.
I rushed to my study to get my lap top and then perched myself against the headboard of the bed beside my very naked very unconscious …wife?. After dragging my gaze away from sleeping beauity, I logged into my bank account and opened up a new joint account for me and my new bride, putting a limited amount of money in it. I thought that twenty grand would be enough to start with, I could add to it when need be. The new bank cards would arrive within the week.
Now we needed a new cell phone, I placed my order and chose the plan I thought would be good for us. I would have to remember to get rid of her other one, Isabella Swan is dead, she wouldn't be needing it anymore. I supposed we would have to fake her death as well, I figured she would be out for a few more hours so I could take care of that while she was still out.
But since the bank and phone had been taken care of, I thought it was time for me to go to Kay's Jewelry and pick out our matching wedding sets.
She didn't seem like the fancy type, so I picked out something I thought would work for both of us, a simple white gold wedding band and matching engagement ring with a two carat diamond. I slipped the ring she had on, off, to get her size and sent in the order with overnight delivery.
Our cover would be as a married couple, after all she was my responsibility now. I decided to give her some time before I changed her, time for her to get used to me. In a way after the change I guess you could call her my baby, after all she will be a newborn, I laughed softly to myself at my little epiphany.
I'll have fun teasing her about that. Hope she's not too fussy, he he, I kill myself. I hope she doesn't freak out too much when she wakes up and finds me standing over her. Maybe I better get the whole death thing taken care of before my baby wakes up from her nap…
Deciding on a course of action I slipped out the door and ran into the next town with Isabella's driver's license in my pocket.
It didn't take long before I found a suitable substitute for the lovely Isabella. I made a meal out of her, made sure that the body wasn't recognizable, and planted the license in her pocket. I then made sure that the body was placed so that the humans would find it by the next day.
I couldn't stand Edward any more. My poor sister had been through so much, I saw Victoria kill her parents and set the house on fire. It was horrible, all I could do was sob into Jasper's chest. He and I were on a vacation away from the family at the time so I never told anyone what was going on besides Jasper and Carlisle.
Jazz and I were hunting in Alaska with the rest of the family when a sudden vision hit me so hard I ran face first into a small tree. It didn't hurt of course but it was very embarrassing for a vampire to run into a tree.
Jasper was at my side within a moment's notice, holding me in his arms as I watched the vision unfold in my mind.
Bell was in a strange place coming out of a café… I couldn't see any names of places so I didn't know where she was. She walked down a street and several men blocked her path… she was surrounded… she tried to run only to be boxed into an alley. They intended to gang rape her. She screamed and her attacker pounded her head into the brick wall several times, very hard… she fought to stay conscious… the man slammed her head into the wall again…then someone stopped him…they wanted to get their turn while she was still alive. A strange man appeared behind them… I couldn't see his face but his accent was familiar… he was vampire…he killed the men and squatted down in front of Bella… brushed her hair aside… and then the vision faded away.
"Nooo, Bella!" I screamed as my vision faded and I saw my family running to me.
"What did you see, darlin?"
"Bella… a gang of men stopped her in the street…surround her…boxing her into an alley… they were going to rape her…she screamed and one of them beat her head into the wall so hard she was almost d-d-dead."
I heard a gasp of horror from my family and growls from some of the men.
"Where was she?" Edward's voice rang out of the crowd of my family.
"I don't know."
"Dammit, Alice, think!" Japer sent him a warning growl.
Then it dawns on me…the accent of the men.
"Oh! I think she's in Texas I...I…I recognize the accent! Jasper you have to call Peter. See if he knows anything!"
"Alice if her head wound was as bad as you described she will be dead before we can get to her." Carlisle reminded us softly.
"No! Please no!" I cried, Jasper rocked me in his arms, I could hear Rosalie and Esme sobbing and their mates trying to comfort them. Edward just sat on the ground and rocked back and forth as if in a daze.
"This is my fault. Carlisle I'm going to the Denali home for a while…I need to be alone for a while." He whispered, And without waiting for a reply he was gone.
