Found some older stuff. I am fixing up a bit and posting. Hoping it will kick start my writing again. Hope you all enjoy. Please review. And I own no rights to Twilight, everything recognizable belongs to Stephanie Meyer.
Fate and destiny, the words seem interchangeable, but they aren't. Fate is predestined, it's something that was supposed to happen, someone you were supposed to meet, it's the greater plan. Destiny is the path you've chosen to take but whatever road you choose it leads to the same thing, the journey is just a little different along the way. Very rarely fate is thrown off course and you have a chance to change fate or to fix it.
I learned this not so very long ago. Of course I was sure I knew what my fate was and I knew I wanted it, that I was destroyed in having lost it.
It was sometime after Edward left, after I found out about the wolves. Jacob had promised to take me cliff jumping. I knew there was a storm coming but I needed to hear his voice. The fall was exhilarating, the water icy cold, I felt alive, right up until the current took me and I crashed up into the cliff.
I came to in a dark cave, a woman humming gently.
"It's alright, you're alright." She told me gently.
"Where am I?"
"A cave, the opening is under the water near the cliffs."
"Who are you?"
"An agent of fate."
"An angel?" At this point, having been around vampires and werewolves, I wasn't sure anything would really surprise me.
"No." She laughed a little.
"A demon?" Not a bad idea to ask.
She laughed again, "No."
"Perhaps a little of both, as most people are."
I nodded at her and brought a shaky hand to my head, there was blood when I looked at my fingers.
"A small cut, nothing to worry over." She assured me.
"How do we get out of here?"
"When the storm passes. Now it is raging and you have a choice."
"Your fate was pushed off course, you are being given the chance to fix it or to change it, if you will. Whatever destiny you choose, only you have the power to set fate right or change everything."
I frowned at her, "What do you mean."
"One instant, the path of your destiny, changed fate Bella. I'd like to give you the chance to fix it."
I nodded, what else could I do, Edward was my destiny, I was sure of it, if something stole that fate from us then I would take any chance to correct it.
"Things might not be what you think they are Bella, be careful, we choose our destinies but fate has a plan, now that the plan is thrown off course, the path you choose, can lead you where it ought to or somewhere unknown, changing the fate of more than just yourself." I nodded. "Rest now."
It wasn't so bad an idea, my head was beginning to hurt and I felt a little dizzy.
