I opened my eyes slowly. Everything was so much clearer…and quiet. I realized that it was the absence of my heart beat.
I sat up; blinking in the bright light coming from the window, glittering off my skin and someone else’s…
“Bella!” Becka called out. She pulled me into a tight hug, laughing happily. She seemed so much happier than she had in the last month.
“Jeez, Becka! You’re acting normal for once!” I teased, ruffling her hair. She pulled back and grinned at me.
“Well, someone had to be the mature one. Since you were sick, I had to step up and take that role. If Aaron or Alex had tried, you would have been dead before we left!” She said in an equally teasing tone.
Suddenly, the door burst open. I gasped, and turned. Becka was staring at me with wide eyes.
“Hey, where’s Bella?” Alex asked. I looked at him in confusion. I knew he could be dull, but he wasn’t that stupid.
“I’m right here!” I said. No one seemed to be able to hear me. I reached out and grabbed Becka’s hand. She gasped at my touch.
“Bella, your invisible!” she breathed. I looked down, and saw myself, except I was translucent. But I was invisible to them…
I reappeared with a gasp. I had a very good power. I could become invisible at will, it seemed. No one could see, or hear me while I was. They could only feel me. And I was transparent while I was, so I could see what I doing.
“Wow! That is so sweet!” Aaron said. I grinned at him. Becka smiled, then helped me up and led me to a mirror.
“Well, ready to see how you will look for all of eternity?” she asked. I nodded, and she pushed me into the mirror. I took a step back and gasped.
I was…beautiful. My long brown hair was slightly shorter. It was shinier and straighter. My red highlights were much more visible, even in the shadow of the room. My lips were full and red, and my face was slightly longer. My cheekbones were higher, and more visible. My eyes were closer together, and larger and almond shaped. They were glowing blood red.
I took a step back, my face horrified. “My…eyes!” I gasped. Becka looked at me in confusion for a moment, and then realized the problem.
“Oh, your eyes are red because of the leftover human blood in you. It should fade away after a year. Actually, for us three, it only lasted a few months, so don’t worry.” She assured me. I nodded, relieved.
“Yeah, don’t worry. You’re not a monster.” Aaron said to me smiling. I looked at him gratefully.
“I don’t think it would be possible for Bella to be a monster. She’s way too nice.” Alex said seriously. We all stared at him for a moment, then burst out laughing. It felt just like the old days, before Aaron moved, and the rest of us went to different schools.
“Thanks.” I said sarcastically. I felt so much better, even though I was different. My heart had stopped beating. I was immortal. I was a beautiful entity that people had once worshipped and feared. And yet, I felt so much better.
I had finally gotten what I wanted. Now, I was beautiful and strong. I wasn’t weak and delicate. I was graceful and fast, instead of clumsy and slow.
I was a vampire.
