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. :)
2. Coming Death
Rating 5/5 Word Count 566 Review this Chapter
Glass exploded and pain erupted in my legs as if they had been shoved under a steamroller. The heat of the exhaust burned as the four wheeled monster breathed down my neck. I could hear the strangled sound as the engine tried to push through the car blocking the huge truck's path. Why don't you stop? I pleaded, with tears and shattered glass filling and burning my eyes.
My face oozed warm liquid, which I registered as blood as it poured down my head and pooled in my lap. I threw myself against the seat-belt, trying to dive left and get away from the monster that was eating me alive. As I shifted my hips, trying to wiggle free, my legs rotated and I screamed in pain. My legs felt like wood that had just been twisted so hard it had shattered into splinters. Even though I stilled myself the pain continued. I howled and screeched and clawed at my seat-belt till my fingers were bloody but the monster slowly kept pushing the Honda forward.
I looked around through the still intact side window opposite of me and realized my mom had parked in the small lot behind the store, with the tall, windowless brick walls of the back of department stores staring down at me. There was no one to hear me scream. The delivery truck was slowly going to kill me and the sick, malicious person in the truck who had been stalking me would be satisfied.
My screams stopped as I felt the car turn so the front of the truck met my side of the car at a perfect perpendicular 'T'. I was either going to go under the truck, or I could hope to God it would just keep pushing me until --- my thoughts broke off as I looked through the window opposite me again and with horrified realization, I watched the brick wall slowly draw closer. Either way, I was going to be crushed and die. The truck would either run me over, or press me up against the brick wall till the car was crushed. Either way, it would end in my death. Tears poured silently down my cheeks as I closed my eyes and waited for death to come.
And come it did.
The engine cut off. Was I dead? It hadn't ended as painfully as I had expected. I shook my hair out of my eyes, and blood splattered against my window. I pressed my hand to my forehead and it felt like little pieces of gravel were grinding against my skull. I quickly dropped my hand and looked around dizzily.
I closed my eyes, even when I heard the sound of metal screaming as the door on my side was ripped off. The seatbelt tore, and something liquid dripped onto my chest. I wiped it off as a breeze swept over me and then the thick, hot air replaced it again.
I was laid on the asphalt and I put my slightly wet hand lightly on my face. What had I wiped off, blood? I lifted my hand to my hand and sniffed it.
I was immediately overwhelmed with a scent that smelt like the sweetest perfume in this world. It was almost like the scent swirled in my head and numbed everything. My eyes were already closed but I relaxed and slipped away.
