This was a story idea I had thought of during a drive back from one of my swim meet. I thought bringing in a new character would be fun along with bringing back some old ones, wanted or not.*Wicked glint in eyes*. Hope you enjoy! ~DarkAngel

I'm a freak! I had finally came to that conclusion
I looked at myself in the mirror once more. Even through my beauty there were many faults. I had straight luscious brown hair that went a little bit past my midback. I was skinny with perfect curves. Plus I had elf like features, even a bit of a point to my ears. And I was talented. I was the best swimmer on the swim team.
Yet I was clumsy! How could that be? Probably because in the water I defied gravity. With the good there is always the strange.
I had a very pale complexion, you could say I was as white as a ghost.
Maybe I am. I thought grimly. I didn't know anything about my past or my parents, so for all I knew I could be a ghost.
One rainy evening, wait it's always raining! Anyways I had been left on Charlie's doorstep attached with a note.
Take care of Rembrance please it had read. Charlie had taken care of me all my life and I was content.
He said I reminded him so much of his daughter, Bella. I loved to hear stories of her. A few weeks before he found me Bella had diappeared. They searched for weeks but there was no luck. Some say she ran off with love of her life, Edward Cullen. Others claim she become lost at sea on that stormy night.
Whatever the case I loved to hear stories about her and Charlie didn't mind sharing. he had been so happy when I showed up. It was like having another child to fill the empty space in his heart.
Bella fascinated me and so did Edward. Sometimes I fantasized that they were parents and had no choice but to give me up. I snorted. Right, and I'm a mythical creature from a world beyond.
I yawned though yet I wasn't the least bit tired. I didn't sleep much and I had started sleep less and less over the years. I have these bruise like shadows underneath my eyes which give a more mysterious look.
Whenever Charlie complimented me on my looks or talent I would blush scarlet and give him a weak thanks.
Just then I heard Charlie call me down to dinner. I sighed, I would've cooked but he insisted on doing so since I was only 16.
I tried to be stealthy going the stairs whch didn't work and I tripped making my noisy entrance.
" Hello Mem," Charlie said cheerfully though I could see the ancient sadness that would forever remain in his eyes. " Thought you would like some old fashioned cheese burgers tonight."
"Thanks Charlie." I replied. I took the first bite of my burger. It was a little dry and neede salt and pepper but I didn't say anyting and just gave him a grateful smile.
I didn't want Charlie to ever leave me. He was the closest thing I ever had to a father.
Yet I couldn't denie the enevitable. He was getting old, old enough to be my grandfather. But who would take care of me if he wasn't here?
I pushed these thoughts away and concentrated on my food.
After dinner I went up to my room to get ready for bed. I used Bella's room as my own and loved to think of the mysteries that lay in the walls. Thinking of all the secret visits Bella and Edward must have shared here made me smile.
For some reason both Charlie and Jacob Black and his friends despised Edward. I couldn't imagine why at all.
And when we visited the Blacks I usually just stood awkwardly in Jacob's presence. He was always giving me knowing and protective glances.
My curiosity burned inside of me to know Bella's dark past for Charlie only shared her good times. Even though I didn't share it I was really nervous about my first day of being a Junior. It was nerveracking not knowing if I would be accepted not that I cared but it was always easier to lay low and not be noticed when you weren't labled as the weird girl.
I lay in bed awile thinking of nothing particular until I drifted off into a peaceful sleep.
