2. What Have I Done?

Rating 5/5   Word Count 1441   Review this Chapter

The Cullens were so welcoming. They let me stay for how ever long I want. Alice forced Bella and me to go shopping with her this weekend because she thought that we lacked a decent wardrobe.

“ Alice you know I hate shopping,” Bella complained. I noticed that she did that a lot.

“ Yeah come on you just went with Rosalie this morning,” I knew that I needed to go because I have nothing to wear but I still protested.

“ I don’t care. Bella you need to update and Asthe don’t even get me started. You don’t have any clothes.”

“But what about the stuff I brought with me?”

“ That trash? You have got to be kidding me. A homeless wouldn’t be fit to wear it.”


“We are going and that’s final”

“You might as well,” Edwards voice came from the top of the stairs, ”if Alice want something she’ll stop at nothing to get it.”

“Gee, thanks for the support Edward,” Bella said.

“ I hate to say it but he’s right, besides Alice probably had a vision about it anyway.”

“ Yay, thank you Edward”

Today was Sunday and it was my first day at the Cullen’s house. Everyone treated me like I've been living with them my whole life. Surprisingly even Rosalie was nice to me. I still tried to avoid Edward because I didn’t want to trigger any memories. In 1917 I met Edward for the first time. I was already a vampire then and he was human. My “parents” knew his because we also were one of the richest families in Chicago. They introduced us on March 3. I fell for him as any girl would and the next year, 5 weeks before the influenza hit, he proposed. Unfortunately by that time my family was wanted by the Volturi. Staying was not an option and a week later we left. I couldn’t tell Edward anything; our entire family disappeared from the city. Four weeks after we left, the Spanish influenza swept through and the Masens were caught in it. The last news I heard of them was that both Elizabeth and Edward sr. were dead. What happened to their son I did not know… until now. I guess he doesn’t remember anything because he never mentioned it when he got a chance. I’m thankful because I don’t want to come between anybody.

The day crawled by and I got really bored. The Cullens left to go hunting and Alice was babysitting Bella at her house. I got the place all to myself. Why not go exploring, I thought, might as well check out the surroundings. Before leaving I decided to test out my latest ability. I have a ton of them. The new one allows me to mask my scent so no one will be able to tell if I’m a vampire or not. It also allows me to control my paleness. I can change the shade of my skin so that it’s a little darker than Bella’s. I probably wouldn’t need it but just in case, you never know.

I left the house a few minutes later after I made the decision. As I was running in the forest I came across the strangest scent. It war repulsive and smelled sickly musky. Maybe I should turn around, was the first thought that went through my head. Curiosity got the better of me and I decided to follow the scent at a human jog, just for extra precaution since I was already using my ability.

About a mile later the smell got so strong that I had to stop breathing. I was in a small forest right outside of Seattle. The scent was comin from a clearing up ahead. When I entered it the firs thing I saw was a guy sitting in the middle of the clearing. As soon as I entered he turned his head towards me and we both froze. His face looked like it belonged to a seventeen year old but his body looked like it belonged to a 25 year old. He had dark, copper skin; he probably belonged to one of the Indian tribes that are around here.


The girl was breathtaking with electric blue eyes and brown hair so dark it almost looked black. She was amazing and for a second I forgot about everything and just stared at the girl. She was probably no older than 18.

“ Are you lost?” I decided to speak.

“No, I was just exploring,” her voice was like a bell, clear and strong. Perfect just like her.

“Where do you live? There are no roads leading to Seattle from here.”

“I don’t live in Seattle.”

“Then where do you live?” There was something in her eyes and voice that made me think she was hiding a secret.

“In Forks.”

Forks! I’ve never seen her there.

“Did you just move here?”


“Are you alone or do you live with somebody?”

“I live alone.”

“ You look a little young to love alone.”

“No, I'm 18 and legal.”


Should I be telling him this? He is a stranger after all. I couldn’t stop myself I felt so at ease with him and every time I looked into his eyes I felt that my heart would skip a beat if it could.

“Well welcome to Washington then,” he had a gentle voice and there was something strange in it. I came up and sat next to him.

“What’s your name?”

“Astheroshe Saunière, and you?”

“I’m Jacob Black and I live on the Quileut Reservation. It’s about northwest of Forks.”

“What are you doing here then Jacob?

“ Exploring.” Haha funny, that was my response.

“ Do you need a ride home?” he was offering me a ride. I wondered if I should go. Why not, if he’s some criminal or something I can fix that.

“Sure, thanks.”

“ Come on the car is this way.”

During the entire ride we talked about everything we could possibly think of. At some point we even talked about global warming. That was so random it was hilarious. By the time we were anywhere near Forks it was really late.

“ Wow it’s almost midnight aren’t you tired? You’ve been driving for a while.”

“No I’m ok, what about you.”

“I think I’m gonna collapse,” I lied

“ Why don’t you stay at my place? It’s just at the next right. Forks is farther.”

“ Sure,” I blurted out before I could even think about it. What would the Cullens say? I’m probably in so much trouble.

We arrived at a nice small house and as soon as we parked a man in a wheelchair came out of the house. I assumed it was Jacob’s dad and I was right.

“Jake! Where have you been all day?” His dad had an expression of relief on his face.

“Relax dad. Listen, a friend of mine is staying over.” I noticed that Jake didn’t answer his question.

“Sure who is it?” As soon as he said that Jake motioned for me to get out of the car. When I came out of the car, I saw a look of nervousness, happiness, and worry pass across his face. He quickly composed his face back to that calmness he had before.

“Hello, what your name?”


“ That’s a very interesting name. Welcome to our home.”

“Thank you”

Jacob said I could sleep in his room while he takes the couch.

“ I don’t think you’ll like it there. The couch is really lumpy.”

“ ’Kay. Good night.”

“ Night,” I heard Jake pause “ Astheroshe?”

When I turned to face him, he was standing about an inch from me. He lowered his head so it was on the same level as mine. All I could do was breathe, not that I needed to. All of a sudden just when I thought he was about to leave, he put his hands on my face and our lips met. He kissed me softly, carefully like he was afraid I might break. If only he knew. I couldn’t resist so I put my hands around his neck and pressed my body to his. When we parted we were both out of breath.

“Good night Astheroshe.”

“ Good night Jake.”

I briefly kissed him one more time before he left the room. I wonder what I’m gonna tell Carlisle tomorrow. What have I done? I thought to myself as I layed on the bed quietly thinking of the consequences.
