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. :)

Edward was still for a moment, closing his eyes. At first I thought he was grieving. I had killed Emmett. Rosalie was going to tear me to shreds.
Then Edward opened his eyes with a confused expression. "I can hear his thoughts. He wants to know what happened. He said it in a slightly different way but you get the point." Nobody smiled though.
I was the only one who could bring him back, and I didn't know what I did in the first place. "Can he hear us?" I asked quietly.
"I don't think so." Edward replied, still puzzled. Then he asked it. "What did you do?"
"I dunno." I murmured. I was really mad, and I snapped." I gasped and they all cast alarmed looks at me.
"What is going on?" It was Carlisle, followed by Esme and Rosalie (I gulped seeing her face).
"Liz did something to Emmett and now we can't find him." Alice explained. Carlisle and the two other women laughed.
"No, Carlisle. I think Lizzie discovered her power. " And then there was silence as they all stared at me.
"Do it again Lizzie." Edward commanded.
"NO!" My hair glowed red and then Edward disappeared.
I screamed and started sobbing.
"Lizzie, I didn't know it was possible to obtain a power before you're a vampire. This is very interesting." Carlisle mused, seeming to completely forget about his sons.
Suddenly Jasper was in the doorway. "Who ticked Lizzie off?" He asked in a frightened voice.
I took a deep breath and closed my eyes. I thought hard.
Suddenly Edward was sprawled on the floor in front of me. I screamed and jumped backward.
"Thanks." He was abruptly on his feet looking at me in fascination.
"You're expecting me to say 'You're welcome'?" I asked in disbelief. "I could have killed you!"
Edward rolled his eyes but before I could press further he said, "You should probably bring Emmett back."
I nodded and closed my eyes. This time, when Emmett appeared on the floor in front of us, I didn't cry out, but Rosalie started laughing hysterically.
Emmett was on his feet eyeing me wearily. I looked down sadly. This was horrible. Edward rested a hand on my shoulder.
"It's not your fault. Emmett had it coming to him, and at least you can get a good night's sleep." He smiled a crooked smile and I smiled back weakly.
"Where did I send you anyway?"
This question puzzled him. "I'm not quite sure."
I snorted. "Well, sorry bout that."
Emmett laughed. "It'll come in handy though since you're on our side. He was grinning broadly and I was relieved.
Alice gasped and we all looked at her. Her eyes went blank for a few seconds and then she came out of her trance. I watched the whole thing fascinated. Her eyes were wide. "Volturi!" She gasped and the whole room went tense. My hair bronzed slightly and I looked around confused.
When are they coming?" Edward cut me off quickly.
"Five minutes." Those words sent the stress up so high I could hardly bear it and I shook my head back and forth as my hair turned a dull red.
Every head turned to Carlisle, who turned to Edward. "What for?"
Edward closed his eyes. "To see if Bella's changed. Of course, to also see if she acquired powers. That's all." And then he stiffened.
My hair grew a darker shade of red.
"Aro's with them. Aro, Demetri, Jane, and Felix." Bella shuddered as Edward the last name. I was breathing like I had just run a mile. Edward opened his eyes. I realized everybody was looking at me. It was driving me crazy. And then, everybody panicked.
"Where'd she go?"
"Is it the Volturi?"
I watched them panic with me, standing here, not having moved or anything. Even Edward appeared to not be able to hear my mind. What was going on?
I thought hard, and even though I hadn't moved an inch, they all stopped and stared. They appeared to be able to see me again. I laughed nervously. They looked at each other. She wasn't even a vampire, and she had the power to do all this? I knew this is what was running through their minds, because it was bothering me too.
They all looked back at me. "Again." Edward commanded quietly and I obeyed. Nobody gasped this time. Quietly, Edward instructed, "Stay like this, but stay right by me." I nodded but realized he couldn't see me.
"Okay." I murmured but he gave no sign that he heard me. I sighed and touched his shoulder. Immediately, he disappeared. I changed back and I could see him again. "Aro CANNOT find out." Edward said quietly, but for some reason, I felt like it was a lost cause.
