ALICE ’S POV

“Becky,” I said, slightly flustered. “I didn’t hear you come in,”

“Neither did I,” I heard Bella mumble.

“That’s ok, I got back early. I probably should have knocked before coming into the room. I like that dress,” she told Bella, gesturing with her eyes to what she was wearing.

“Uh, thanks. It’s Alice’s. So, how was your trip?” Bella’s voice sounded a bit edgy by the fact that she had heard us talking. I’m not sure how much she heard but I knew she heard me wanting to know her story.

Becca rolled over onto her back and, after a sigh, sat up. “It was fine, I guess, except I didn’t really get to see anyone. Greg was visiting his parents and the rest were out hunting. I didn’t want to bother Greg and didn’t feel like trying to track down the rest in the forest so I just left them a note saying I was there and to call me when they got back.”

“Wait, Greg was visiting his parents?” He must be a fairly new vampire is he was visiting his parents and if that was the case, using Becky’s power so his appearance didn’t look too different.

“Yah, Greg’s got a pretty messed up family.” Becky made a face but explained. “You see, when Greg was fifteen, his mom, Kendra remarried this guy Dan. Greg told me that what he can remember from his human life was that Dan always acted a bit peculiar. So, two years later, Kendra found out that Dan was a vampire or something like that. Dan sort of freaked. Dan wasn’t one of those types of people that plan very ahead so he never thought about what would happen if Greg and Kendra were to find our one day. He knew the Volturi’s rules about keep our existence a secret so rather than to ask Greg and his mom to keep it a secret, he changed them. Dan figured he would have to tell Kendra soon or later and change her if he wanted to stay with her but he turned Kendra, he also changed Greg for his mother’s benefit.”

“I’d never heard of a vampire changing a whole family.” I marveled at Dan’s ability. Normally a vampire has a hard enough time doing one person but two. “I don’t know if Carlisle could do that. But that just sounds a bit strange to me. Changing a family.”

“Yes, well Greg himself is a bit strange,” Bella told me.

“He is not!” Rebecca became defensive. “He just has a lot of character.”

“That’s a great way to describe him; full of character. Maybe a little bit too much character.”

“Hey character is good. It’s a whole lot better than being dull and boring,”

“Are you implying that Edward’s boring?” Bella sounded shocked.

“Well you don’t catch him doing the things we do. He just doesn’t seem like that person who will be doing crazy and spontaneous things for no reason like Greg and I do. Like you used to do,” Rebecca did have a point. Edward was very reserved.

Bella sighed. “Just go on with your story,” she turned to look at me.

“Don’t worry,” she told me. “We do this all the time,”

I turned back to look at Becky. “So, how did you become a vampire?” I asked her directly this time.

“It’s kind of funny, how every little action or and decision that we make is interloped into our greater out come. You probably understand that the best, since you have visions of the future. So you understand the smallest change can have the biggest effect on your fate. This does have a point,” Rebecca reassured me. “Trust me,”

“So our plans had changed. Before I was sentenced to boarding school, Renee decided that maybe, purifying my soul would improve on my behavior. Mom sent me to be a private all girls school so I could become one of those Catholic School Girls. That didn’t last very long. The next action was boarding school but after getting caught messing around in the head master’s office, I was kicked out of yet another school.

“I was running out of options. I could see how I was hurting Renee and Bella but I just could stop. Sometimes I just have the urge to stir up trouble. Like life is too dull if I don’t. It’s almost as if I have obsessive compulsion disorder when it comes to misbehaving. I couldn’t stop. Renee was either going to home school me or she was also considering sending me to Charlie with Bella. She thought that Charlie being a cop would have a better influence over me. As I said, I could see how I was hurting the people around me. So I sat down with Renee and talked to her and told her, this time I was going to be serious. I was going to try my hardest not to screw up.

“The next week I started school with Bella. We had almost all our classes together, so she could also be there to help me. And I did try. I tried my hardest and after a month, I was still clean. I was free of detentions, suspensions, and I hadn’t gotten into any fights yet. I know a month doesn’t sound like a long time but you have to believe me, that was a major accomplishment for my standards.

“That’s when the Rauch family moved to Phoenix. There were two boys in the family who came to our school. Ryan and Kevin; both incredibly and outrageously hot. Right Bells?”

Bella cheeks flushed a slight pink color. Must have been blood left over from the last time she had hunted. “They had-,” Bella struggled for works “Had a certain look, I guess you could say.”

“Oh, please, you blushed like a tomato when you first saw them,” Rebecca teased her sister.

“And I suppose whispering extremely loud “They’re hot!” was the appropriate response?” I laughed and so did Bella.

Becky smirked “Hey, all I can say is that they noticed me after that didn’t they?” Then she frowned. “So maybe I shouldn’t have done that but it’s all part of the butterfly effect. Everything has its reason no matter how corny that sounds.

Becca took on a slightly dreamy look. “Ryan was a senior and Kevin was a junior like us. We had a few classes with Kevin and had the same lunch period was the two brothers. It was hard not to stare and gawk at them. Mind that we had not known about the existence of vampires yet. Their skin was paler than ours when we were still human. They both had black, silky hair. Ryan’s fell into his eyes in a cute, shaggy style. Kevin’s was a shorter cropped style. The most mesmerizing thing about them was their eyes. They were a crystallized red color. Of course they just fed us the lie that they were wearing contacts and that having red contacts were very in where they were from. And we believe them. How could you not when they had such wonderful, soft voices.

“It wasn’t long before Bella and I became friends with Kevin but I wasn’t really into him. I was more into Ryan. He was all cool and aloof. I am embarrassed to admit that guys like that are the guys that I wanted.

“Slowly Ryan started to warm up to me and my magnificent charm.” Bella snorted.

“What?” I asked her.

“Nothing Alice, it’s just the way Becca portrays some things.” Bella had a small smile on her face and shook her head.

“That is irrelevant to the story.” Rebecca retorted. “The point is Ryan and I started dating. We dated for about two months but Ryan was looking the charm that I originally fell for. That’s when I started avoiding Ryan. On the forth day of it, he confronted me and said he wanted to take me out. He also wanted to bring Kevin. Kevin had a crush on the lovely Bella here. I managed to talk Bella into agreeing to double with me even though I didn’t really want to go out of Ryan anymore.

“The next day I got back home from the mall and went into Bella’s bedroom. When I came in her room was covered in boxes and she was packing more.

“ ‘What’s going on?’ I asked her.

“ ‘Becky I’ve decided to go to Forks early. I mean, you’re doing great here without me and I think I really do need to give Phil and Renee their space plus we’re moving to Jacksonville soon anyways. So I’m sort of helping the moving process by packing up my stuff now and going to Forks. Oh, and I really don’t want to go on the date with Kevin tonight. He’s nice and all but I really don’t like him like that.’

“ ‘That’s ok.’ I told her sitting on the edge of her bed. ‘I was actually going to ask you if you could pretend sick or something with me’

“ ‘Why’ Bella asked me.

“ ‘Because I was planning on breaking up with Ryan tonight’

“ ‘oh, well I’m sorry’

“ ‘Don’t be. Besides, I always feel really fat around Ryan and Kevin. Have you noticed they never eat? They also always make me feel gangly uncoordinated. I’ve never seen two people, much less guys, be that graceful.’

“That night when Ryan picked me up, I decided to make this quick. I would feel really bad if we went through a whole date and have him pay for it and everything and then break up with him.

“I was starting to run through my mind what I was going to say to Ryan when he pulled over. It was my first time realizing where we were. We weren’t in front of a restaurant. We were even around buildings. I was kind of freaking out. We were in the middle of no where in the middle of the night and it was pitch black.

“ ‘Ryan, where are we?’ I asked him. He didn’t answer. Instead he started kissing my neck. I was going to protest but my will to do so vanished. ‘Ryan’ I managed to say but he didn’t stop. That was until he stopped to bit me.

“I felt his teeth sink into me and for about half a second the only emotion I had was confusion. Why was he biting me? But that was quickly replaced by pain. This horrible fire on my neck that quickly covered my whole body. I don’t need to go into too much detail as to what my transformation felt like since both of you have already gone through it.”

I actually didn’t remember my transformation but I have witness it happening. The person screams their head off from the nonstop constant pain. Becky probably didn’t know that though.

“I started screaming but Ryan hit my jaw and broke it. That made the pain even worst but I figured I had better stay quiet. When I didn’t think I would be able to stand pain and was wishing for dead to let this hell end for breaking my jaw wasn’t the only thing he did to me.” Becky got a look on her face that was a mixture of anger, disgust, and regret.

“Then I heard Kevin’s voice.” Becca started back up, editing. “He started yelling at Ryan and pulled him off of me. I heard this strange snarling noise that, in my current state, I couldn’t register.

“I could hear the two boys fighting and yelling but the pain was so great I was sure I was going to pass out if I had to take this for another minute. The voices got quite and I felt someone reach back into the car. Their ice cold hand touched my cheek, then my neck. I wanted to be angry at it. It was cold, just like Ryan’s was,” a deep snarl erupted from Rebecca’s chest that obviously couldn’t be held in.

“But I couldn’t,” She continued. “My body was on fire and I couldn’t help but to feel slightly relieved at the coolness it had against my scorching body. Now that I’ve had time to think about it, I guess that was Kevin trying to feel for a pulse. Whether he felt one or not it didn’t seem to matter. He left me in the car to burn for three days. I wake up and ta-dah I’m a vampire.”

Though I didn’t want to, I couldn’t help but to stare. No wonder she kept how she became a vampire a secret. If that was my story, I would have done the same. Her story was kind of similar to Rosalie’s. I was completely amazed that she actually had married a man. That she is dating one right now. I found it awing that she could trust men after what happened to her.

Since I still hadn’t been able to find my voice, Rebecca continued. “So it’s like I said, it’s the butterfly effect. Bella was supposed to be on that date with me. I can only imagine what would have happened if she was. She probably would have been turned or killed is she came. I was at first thankful that she cancelled. I did not want the same fate for her but was we can see, I still couldn’t prevent it from happening.”

“Wow, Becca,” I told her. “That’s your story?” there was something wrong with my mind. Why was I asking something like that? It was just, I was so transfixed by everything Rebecca told me.

“That’s my story,” she echoed.

I was about to say something more but I was pulled away by a vision.
