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. :)

"Where's the cape?" I mumbled, disoriented. They all chuckled.
Alice was in front of me before I saw her move. "We have super speed, grace ---usually." She winced and the vampires laughed.
Of course. Inside vampire jokes.
She shrugged and continued. 'We have hard cold skin," She touched my forehead with her hand and I recognized the arms that had carried me here. "Ummm, we're venomous, we thirst for blood ---obviously --- we smell good, we have an amazing sense of smell, uhhh..." She was ticking the things off on her fingers. This was an extremely long list.
"Insanely beautiful." I muttered so low that I couldn't even hear myself say it.
"Oh yeah!" Her expression lit up as she added, "And we have very sensitive hearing!" She winked at my shocked face and they all laughed. It wasn't usually like me to blush, I only did so on rare occasions, but my humiliation provoked my face to turn brick red. Edward sighed at me at what looked like was longing, and the other two nodded at him in understanding.
I leaned back slightly, and forgetting my elbows I had propped up on were on the edge of the table, slipped off. Someone caught me before I completely mangled myself and I murmured a thanks dazedly. "Super speed? Check." I muttered and they all laughed.
"Alice, you forgot about our strength." Carlisle scolded her before turning to me. "We have an immense amount of strength that out does any human by far." He looked at Alice. "Want to show her? Go fetch something to brea--" Edward coughed awkwardly, cutting him off. "Umm, there's no need for that Alice, I had the courtesy to..." Alice shot a dark look at him. "Esme just had the plasma imported, Edward! But obviously," She added grudgingly, "She's gonna be a little ... distracted." She said casting an apologetic look at me. What had he done to the plasma T.V.? Really, is punishing the furnishings necessary? Edward chuckled softly.
How many are there? Esme, Carlisle, Alice, Jasper, Ed--- I wondered nervously. "Eight." Edward answered promptly and I jumped. He grinned apologetically. " I can read minds." He admitted. Oh, LOVELY. I thought specifically for him, glaring at him over my shoulder. He hadn't moved from where he'd caught me.
"I can see the future!" Alice piped up happily. "Emmett's gonna love you! He'll be so happy to have a human around again." My stomach dropped and I stared at her in horror. Edward heard my thoughts and rushed to assure me. "It's not like that! My wife Bella, had been a human. She was turned two years ago."
Oh. Breath blew out of me and I shook my head dizzily. "Oh, yeah...are you hungary, thirsty, tired?" He inquired as he moved to my side. Thirsty and sleepy....I thought, hoping he would hear me.
I let my body slide back until I was lying on the table again. "Where should she go?" Edward wondered. "Your room has the comfiest bed. After all, you hunted around the world for the perfect bed for Bella --" Alice cut off and I had the feeling Edward had sent a glare her way. Suddenly, I was being cradled in one's arms while another pair of arms steadied my legs. I barely heard us move up the stairs and the way the footsteps muted when they stepped onto the carpet. My awareness was fading and I snapped my eyes open as they lowered me gently onto his gold bed.
The bed posts were wrought iron with roses running up and down their length. The metal flowed smoothly except one empty space where a rose surely should have gone. Cruddy designing, I thought, annoyed. Edward chuckled. "Not exactly." I hadn't noticed him leave, and now he stood with a glass of water in his hand. "Whadyoumean?" My words were slurred. "Later." He replied as I drank. I was sloshing water all over myself but I didn't care. Then I noticed there were dark splotches on his bed. "Sorry." I tried to put meaning into my apology and failed miserably. He smiled. "You need sleep. He went to turn his stereo off but I recognized the music that was flowing seamlessly as it repeated itself. "No. I like it." He nodded, and disappeared through the doorway. I listened to August's Rhapsody from the movie August Rush, and hummed along quietly.
I slept soundly, not knowing what time it was, or how long I'd slept. I had a dream about Harry Potter and though the dream was strange, it was relatively harmless so it surprised me when I woke up with my stomach shivering, and my body drenched in sweat. I was scared to death. Why in any way, would magic hot dogs wearing sorting hats that burped the ABCs put me in a dire situation , that could result in my being scared to death? From the light that was shining through the window, I could guess it was late noon. I heard arguing and exclamations on the first floor and was almost positive they were about me. I was scared. Would they throw me out? I heard Edward loudly say "NO. We would not bring you here to throw you out." I sighed in relief. Thank you.
I sat there staring at the ceiling, trying not to listen. I heard a knock on the open door and jerked my head. "Sorry," Edward apologized. He was holding hands with a slender, small girl, who was taller than Alice though. She had warm golden eyes, a heart shaped face, and beautiful shiny brown hair. She was gorgeous with her full red lips standing out against her pale skin. I smiled because I immediately knew who it was. Bella.
