Dinner with Aunt Jenna was a little awkward. I couldn't stop thinking about everything I had learned about the Salvatores, and that what I thought I had known about the Cullens wasn't all accurate. Who knew there were two different kinds of vampires.
One good thing about Aunt Jenna though was she was pretty laid back. She was a lot like my mom, and was more like a good friend than a parent figure. I think we will get along great.
After assuring Aunt Jenna that we would be home for Elena's midnight curfew, we headed out to meet Bonnie and Caroline. Elena assured me that even though Caroline was a vampire and Bonnie had discovered she was a witch, they were still the same people. I was still having a hard time coming to terms with the witch thing, vampires I was used to, witch craft not so much.
"Bella! It's so good to see you again!" Caroline gushed as she pulled me into a hug. I gasped as I immediately noticed the differences between her hug, and when Alice or Esme used to hug me.
"What's wrong?" Caroline asked pulling away.
I looked at her as I raised a hand slowly placing it against her cheek, "You're not cold. You are warm, and soft." I murmured confusedly.
Caroline giggled as she raised an eyebrow at me, "Yeah, why wouldn't I be?"
"Because you're a vampire."
"What?" Caroline gasped, "Are you insane?"
"It's okay Caroline, she knows."
"You've been around others?" Caroline asked placing her hand over mine on her cheek.
I nodded as a tear ran down my cheek, "Have you heard of the Cold Ones?"
"Just what Stefan has told me."
"I've heard of them. There are stories about them in my family history." Bonnie spoke up as she came over to hug me as well.
"Bella's parents were killed by one." Elena said as she joined in on the group hug.
"What?!" Bonnie gasped,
"Oh Bella, I'm so sorry." Caroline sighed.
"Was it a random attack, or..." Bonnie made a motion with her hand as she lead us over to the couch.
I sighed as I sat down and hugged one of the throw pillows. "She was out for revenge against my ex Edward, he killed her mate James when he tried to kill me."
"What? How did he kill him? The Cold Ones are practically indestructable from what I've heard." Caroline asked.
Elena reached over taking one of my hands in hers, and gave me a nod of encouragement.
"Edward was a Cold One also." I whispered.
"Ok, I think this conversation calls for ice cream!" Bonnie declared as she headed into the kitchen.
We all giggled as she ran back into the room with a quart of Rocky Road and four spoons. We all shared the ice cream as I filled them in on all of the details of what had happened with James, Victoria, and the Wolf Pack.
"So when the wolves saved you what happened with Victoria?" Bonnie asked dropping her spoon into the now empty carton.
I shrugged as I sat back on the couch, "I don't know. She got away."
"Wait, what? You mean she's still out there?" Caroline asked.
"I guess so."
The three of them all looked at each other, "Bella, we have to tell Damon and Stefan. What if she comes here after you?"
"Maybe me staying here isn't such a good idea, I don't want to put any of you in danger." I replied tearing up.
"No, you aren't going anywhere. Damon, Stefan and I can protect you. Plus we have Tyler." Caroline said with a nod.
"What is Tyler going to be able to do against a Cold One?" I asked.
"Tyler is a werewolf." She said with a smile.
Oh great. Mystic Falls has werewolves too.
