“Don’t you want to see yourself.” Edward asked pulling my head up to see his face.

I forgot about that small detail. My outward appearance would have changed drastically. Was I ready to see how drastic?

“I guess.” Could I really ever prepare myself to see what I had become. I guess now was as good as time as any.

We got up from his couch, and he took my hand and led me to the bathroom.

“Are you ready to see the new Bella Swan?”

“I think I am.”
He led me into the bathroom and moved away from the mirror.

I gasped out loud at the sight that was before me. Edward lightly chuckled at my reaction. I looked back at him as if to say something but couldn’t find the words. I was so different. It was me, but someone totally unfamiliar. I was curvier and a slightly taller. I was pale and had dark purple circles under my eyes, which was expected. My eyes were pitch black. My fingers ran across my face, touching my new hard skin.

“The most beautiful thing I have ever seen. She’s right. Saving her was the best thing I could have done. How could I have lived without this beautiful being for the rest of my existence.”

I turned to look at his face. His words touched me so deeply, that if it were possible to cry I would have tear stained cheeks.

His face suddenly turned shy, forgetting the fact that I could now read his thoughts.

“Oh yeah.” he said bashful.

It wasn’t like him to be shy with me. But I have never been able to read his thoughts so…

“Ready to see your family.”

My family. I liked that.


He grabbed my hand again and then we headed down stairs. They must have heard our conversation because they all were standing in the living room, with smiles so bright I should be wearing sunglasses.

“Bella!” Alice screamed. She ran to me with open arms and hugged me so tightly I was so glad I wasn’t human, she would have broken me in half. “We were so worried about you. How are you feeling?”

“I’m fine.”

“Bella why don’t you tell them what you can do.” Edward interrupted Alice’s giggles. He was talking about me reading minds.

“What do you mean?” Alice asked confused.

All there thoughts were so different. Esme, was filled with such happiness I thought she was going to burst. She was happy for Edward and I. For the lifetime we would have together. Alice of course was ecstatic that I was now officially her sister, and that I would be with them for a very long time. Emmett was very happy about me being apart of there family, but his mind wondered from thing to thing. He kept thinking about wrestling and video games, then he come back to our conversation. The first thing I heard from him was a low whistle. Followed by, “Well look at Bella. If I didn’t have Rosalie and she didn’t have Edward…” I ignored the rest of that. Jasper was happy that he no longer had to fight with the smell of my blood. And Rosalie, well... As soon as I walked down the stairs, she was instantly filled with jealousy. She thought I was very pretty, nothing compared to her, but to close for comfort. She didn’t hate me, but she wasn’t exactly ready to welcome me with open arms.

“Bella?” Alice interrupted my thoughts and everyone else’s.

“Oh right. I can read minds like Edward.”

All there jaws dropped, and then quickly rearranged there thoughts. I knew there were a few things in there that they didn’t want me to know about.

“Wow. That’s great.” Esme said, coming to give me hug.

She wrapped her arms around my shoulders and embraced me tightly. She kissed me on my cheek. It reminded me of Renee, which tugged at my dead heart.

“Welcome to the family my daughter. You look absolutely beautiful.”
“Thanks…mom.” I said shyly. She beamed back at me with the use of the word mom.

Emmett was already pulling me up into a huge bear hug, before I could even prepare myself.

“You make a pretty good looking vampire.” he said with a deep laugh.

Suddenly my mind went foggy moving towards something in the distance. I closed my eyes and let it take over me.

It was Jacob, he was wearing a very handsome looking tux. But he was standing over a gravestone crying.

I tried to focus on the what the stone said.

“Isabella Marie Swan. Beloved Daughter & Cherished Friend. 1987 - 2006”

He was crying for me. That was my gravestone.

He turned to face Charlie who was standing next to my grave. His face was bent low, with huge droplets streaming down his face.

“I’m sorry Charlie. We’ll all miss her.” he said to Charlie.

Charlie nodded. The uncontrollable sobs making it hard for him to speak.

Jacob walked away. I watched as he ran into the forest and lost control.

“NO!” I yelled, but no one there could here me. I wanted to chase after him, to tell him that I was ok. “I’m right here, I’m fine.”

Then it all slipped away, bringing be back to the present moment. I was on the ground, frantic voices calling for me. All their thoughts were focused on me and my well being.

“Bella!” Edward yelled. “What the hell happened? Bella!”

I opened my eyes to see six heads all bent over me. As they saw my eyes open, they started to back away.

“Bella? Are you hurt? What happened?” Edward was holding me in his lap, shaking me to come back.

“I think…I think I just had a vision.” Now there jaws really dropped, almost hitting there chest.

“What?” Alice said.

“I saw Jacob and Charlie, and my gravestone.”
“You couldn’t have seen Jacob. You can’t see werewolves in visions.” Rosalie said condescendingly.

Like she would even know anything. It’s not like she had visions.

“Shut up Rose.” Alice said coldly. Rosalie turned away and went to sit on the couch.

“No, I saw him. I know did.” I sat up slowly.

“I thought you said she can read minds not see visions.” Jasper said to Edward.

“She can read minds. She did it up stairs.” Edward said defending what he knew was right.

“I can read minds. But I guess I have visions too?” I had no idea what was going on.

“Weird.” Emmett said.

Jasper came up to me and put his hand on my shoulder. “Welcome to the club of weird vampire powers.” he said jokingly.

I chuckled. It was definitely weird. Two powers exactly like the ones of my family.

Then suddenly a new feeling came over me. I felt jealousy, concern, happiness in waves of emotion. It was so strong. It made me feel weird inside. These weren’t my own feelings yet they were stronger than if I was actually feeling them.

“Bella?” It was Edward again. He grabbed my shoulders and faced me to him. “Now what?!” He thought, frustrated.

“I don’t know.” I said answering his thoughts.

The anxiety that he was feeling, came in huge amounts as he gripped my shoulders. I could feel every last ounce of his distress for me. I stepped back from him, and pushed his hands off my shoulders. I didn’t want to feel all these things. I couldn’t control them like my own feelings. All their emotions were going haywire.

“Bella?” He was hurt by me backing away from him. I didn’t not want to be around him but I didn’t like feeling his emotions.

“It’s not you Edward. Never you. It’s just…” how do I explain this. “I’m also like Jasper.” All there heads turned back to look at me, especially Jasper.

“What do you mean your like me?”
“I can feel everything your feeling. All of you. It’s too much. I can hear everything, feel everything, then on top of that visions. It’s too much.”

My mind was filled with so many things I was going insane. It was too much for one person to handle. On top over everything else, my stomach ached for something to put out the fire. I needed to feed. Something I wasn’t looking forward to.

“Maybe we should go for a run, and get something into your stomach. You’re probably hungry.” Edward of course was right.

“Yeah that’s a good idea.” I needed to get away from all there thoughts and uncontrollable feelings.

Edward took my hand and we sprinted out of there.
