A New Life
FIRST IN THE FATE'S COURSE SERIES! After a tragic car accident, a young girl is taken to Forks,Washington to spend some time with one her long-lost family members... but... who is it?
I do not own Stephenie's characters .. or J.K. Rowling's for that matter :) Update: We find Elizabeth not too alive AND well, but alive at the very least. The 'death' I am refering to in Chap 2 is the vampire that rescued her from the car, E.G. Alice. I haven't even gotten to the reason for that yet! **groan** I had my story plotted out and then I found all these ideas running through my head! Hopefully, I'll be able to calm myself down after the Volturi and it will explain it all. I was planning on them explaining it after her casts were taken off but then my character discovered her powers (without my permission and when she's not even a vampire yet! for goodness sakes!) then the Volturi decided to come, but bring Aro (all without my permission) and so now my rebellious characters are careening out of control. Sorry for the rant, but I needed it out of my system. :)

"Stop acting so cryptic, you're bound to make people suspicious." Edward scolded me lightly as he started the Volvo's engine.
"Oh yeah, like I can NOT be cryptic. I live in a house full of vampires!"
"The mind-reading thing was a little much." He replied raising his eyebrow at me. I flashed a smile at him.
"I thought your thoughts were quite funny though, and so did Edward, he was roaring with laughter." Alice interrupted, quoting me.
" 'Who on Earth believes in mind readers? Or vampires? Or psychics? Or werewolves? Sometimes people are so gullible.' "
I laughed along with her.
"Alice you reminded me," Edward suddenly sounded angry. "Can you not dress her up like that?"
"THANK YOU!" I exclaimed, leaning me head back against the seat, but Alice frowned beside me.
"Why?" She asked.
"It's my right! Don't you have enough money to invest in a life size Barbie doll or something?"
Edward ignored me. "The thoughts of some of those boys were frankly quite disturbing."
I grimaced. Boys could be pervs.
"You're telling me." Edward grumbled.
Alice looked shocked. "You can't be serious Edward! What were they thinking?"
"NO WAY! THERE IS NO WAY YOU ARE HAVING THIS CONVERSATION!" I said loudly.
"I know you married a Southern gentleman," I said slowly. Jasper chuckled. "But there is no way you can't know how perverted teenage boys' minds are!"
Alice shrugged. "They would probably be like that without the makeup," She said as she cast an appraising glance at me."But it's so your color! It's your own fault they're attracted to you."
"Obviously, you don't understand boys." I accused her wryly. "They're not 'attracted' to me. They're like that with every girl, and the clothes just encourage it! Please invest in some life-sized doll!" I pleaded her.
Alice shook her head stubbornly.
I crossed my arms and glared out the window, then disappeared.
"Very mature." Edward muttered.
I saw our driveway and figured I could walk from here. Without opening it, I dove through the door. As I waited for the of the hard road, I realized there wouldn't be one. If I did hit it too hard, I would just go through it. I stood up, and looked down the long driveway. I wonder....
I remembered when I had made Emmett and his various body parts appear in different places around the house. I wondered if I could do it to myself. I remembered in Harry Potter it was sort of the same concept so, I took advice from the fiction book. Pretty stupid, but what did I have to lose?
I closed my eyes and concentrated hard on the Cullens' front porch. I turned.
In Harry Potter it supposedly felt like you were being squeezed through a pipe. They got it all wrong. Instead I felt a gust of wind and I was standing on the porch.
I grinned at the car that wasn't even half-way down the driveway, even with Edward's insane driving. I showed myself and saw the car jerk. I grinned again widely before skipping down the steps. I waited as the car came even faster than before.
In no time, Edward was pulling up in front of the house.
"How'd you do that?" Bella asked curiously as she and the rest of the Cullens got out of the car.
"This?" I focused on a spot five hundred feet across the enormous lawn. I closed my eyes. I felt the wind, and then I opened them. I was standing fifty feet away from the exact spot, but I was n't going to tell them that. Close enough. I couldn't believe I had found ANOTHER way to manipulate my powers to my advantage. I was beginning to think I would never stop discovering new things about my powers.
I strained my eyes and saw not four, but all eight vampires watching me from the end of the driveway.
Emmett was yelling things that I couldn't hear, but I smiled.
I focused hard on my bed in my room, and I in my bathroom. Oh well, I needed some practice. I was still ecstatic.
"AWESOME!" I yelled from upstairs.
I materialized on the porch again, right next to Carlisle. I looked at him with my eyes wide and he was shaking his head. He looked scared.
"The Volturi. They won't rest until they have you. Your powers can branch out in so many ways, you could destroy their entire guard, single handed, still as a human."
He looked down at my terrified face. They won't rest until they have me... My happiness disappeared.
"Trust me, you have NO reason to be frightened. Your powers make you unstoppable."
It was true. But it made the Cullens more likely targets for Jane's visits...
"Maybe I should leave..."
"That would be worse." Carlisle said."We will keep you safe, until you are old enough, and then, you will be one of us."
I looked around at the eight grim faces. The faces of my family.
