Becka and Aaron both turned at me quickly, trying to knock me over. I dodged quickly, and became invisible. I went behind them, while they looked around wildly. I grabbed them both, and threw them into the water.
They both jumped up, spitting out water and dripping wet. I reappeared, laughing at their faces. Before I could react, Alex came up behind me, and threw me into the water too.
I jumped up, wiping water out of my mouth and spitting more of it from my mouth. They all laughed, and I got angry. I splashed them with such force that they all fell, and Alex, on the shore, got soaked.
They all went at me then. They raised their arms, and splashed me as hard as they could. I put my arms up in a lightning fast
motion, and waited for the water. It never came.
I stared in shock at the water dripping in front of me, in midair. My arms were still raised, and it all clicked.
“Becka, try to touch me.” I whispered. She nodded and quickly waded over to me. She tried to touch me, but an invisible wall stopped her. She looked at me in wonder.
“Wow,” she breathed. “You can make force fields, too.” Aaron and Alex both whistled. I grinned, and put my arms down. The force field disappeared as I did.
“Well, that trumps us, doesn’t it?” Alex said sadly. “I mean, she can become invisible and make force fields. What good are we?” Aaron nodded grimly. Becka laughed.
“Oh, stop being drama queens. Bella trumped both of you when she was human, you should have expected her to be super girl!” she scolded. Aaron and Alex smirked, while I looked down. If I could, I would have been blushing like mad.
For the next few hours, the three older vampires taught me how to hunt. I was surprised at how little blood lust I experienced. When I asked, they just said that it had to do with the type of vampire I was. I nodded, thinking.
“Don’t you think we should go back? I mean, people will notice that I’m missing.” I reminded them. They nodded.
“That’s true. I guess we should go. Shift back to human now. Get used to it too. You’re going to be like that for awhile.” Aaron told me. I nodded and shifted. I felt warm, and small.
They shifted also and went into the car. Becka got my stuff quickly, and we were set to go. Even though it would have been quicker to teleport, we needed the time to think of how to explain my absence.
We came up with a lot of things. Sadly, almost none of them made sense. I finally came up with the saddest one that would make everyone look the other way.
“Well, I thought I was going to die. So Becka, Aaron and Alex took me to see the ocean, get a makeover, and feel at peace. They said it wouldn’t be fun to die when I’m sad.” I explained to Charlie.
He blinked at me in surprise. He had been yelling at us for almost five minutes, about how I was sick, and taking me away didn’t help. His red face paled slightly. He looked at me closely, and then at my coven.
“Thank you, for whatever you did. She seems so much better now.” He said, sincerity ringing in his voice. Becka beamed at him.
“Anyway, there was something in the ocean that made me feel better. I think that salt water helps.” I smiled innocently, and my dad rolled his eyes.
No one bugged me about disappearing for almost four days. They had heard from Charlie that I had gone on a homemade ‘make a wish’ trip put up by my friends. I guess he didn’t want me to get any trouble from kids at school and around town.
Sadly, I couldn’t go to school, though. They didn’t want me to infect other people. I didn’t have to stay at the hospital anymore, and Charlie seemed oddly happy about that.
When I asked him, he just shrugged, and changed the subject. I really didn’t care, so I didn’t bring it back up.
Very soon though, I got bored of sitting around the house, only leaving to hunt. Becka had to go somewhere in Colorado, and Aaron and Alex had gone with her. I was all alone, again.
I needed something to do to keep me occupied. The hole in my chest was coming back again, and I couldn’t go numb. Everything reminded me of them now, the sun, the kitchen, the woods, hunting, reading…me. I was a vampire now, and that made me just like them.
While Charlie was at work, I decided to go and drive around. I got into my truck, only feeling slightly annoyed at how slow it was. Soon, I got to the highway, and was cruising down the sunny road.
Something glittered in my mirror. Curious, I looked up to see what it was. Two motorcycles were sitting for sale in someone’s yard, and they immediately got my interest. I pulled over to the house, ran up to the steps, and knocked on the door.
One of the Marks boys answered the door. It looked he hadn’t slept in days. He looked surprised to see me. “Bella Swan?” He asked in surprise. I nodded. He looked a little wary.
“How much for those bikes?” I asked.
“Are you serious?” He demanded. I nodded in irritation. Some people were so slow. Or maybe my new vampirness made me want everything quick and speedy. “But they don’t work!” he protested.
“I don’t care. How much are they?” I demanded of him. He frowned slightly.
“If you want one, just take it. My mom will be happy to get rid of it. She says that with the flu, we don’t need to be risking our lives with non working bikes.” He looked at me warily again. I figured out why he was wary now.
“Oh, don’t worry, I’m not sick anymore. I just have a cough, but the doctors say that I might have it for the rest of my life, because of how damaged parts of my lungs got. I’m not contagious, don’t worry. If I was, Charlie would have me locked up.” I assured him.
He nodded, seeming slightly relieved. Everyone knew that I had had the flu; I was one of the first people in the Olympic Peninsula to get it. It was a pain now, because everyone thought I might kill them with my germs.
“Well, I’ll help you put these in the truck,” he said, walking outside to the bikes. I didn’t need any help, but I needed to pretend I was weak Bella Swan, not Bella, the super girl.
I helped him load both into the bed of my truck, and then turned to him. “Really, I should pay you for these. I feel guilty just taking them.” He shook his head.
“No, its okay. What are you going to do with them?” he asked, curious. I shrugged.
“Maybe I could take them to Dowling’s.” I said shrugging. He snorted.
“He would charge you more than these are worth.” He said, laughing. I smiled, too. John Dowling had a reputation for his high pricing; no one went to him except in emergencies. Everyone else tried to get to Port Angeles.
An idea suddenly dawned on me. “That’s okay, I now someone who builds cars. He could help me out.” He smiled in relief. He waved me away as he went back into his house.
