A New Me
THIRD IN THE FATE'S COURSE SERIES! A new life,
A new death,
and then . . .
A new me. I couldn't remember anything except Jane was wonderful and I was a vampire.
Lizzie's memory is wiped, and Jane tells her she used to have a family, but they are now dead.
Something in Lizzie's mind tugs as she rediscovers her powers, causing her hair to flair white. Jane is hiding something from her, and whenever Cne is around, something happens to her...
As Lizzie tries to discover what they're hiding, and what more, who her old self is, she also uncovers the love for her now dead family, and how honest and caring Jane REALLY is.

"Well, you said you have a house?" I inquired, directing the conversation elsewhere.
"Yes," She replied enthusiastically, relieved to be off of the somewhat fragile subject of my dead family.
"How on Earth do you manage --- ?" I stopped, seeing their gold eyes, "You hunt animals," I whispered and they cast shocked looks at each other.
"You seem . . . to learn fast. But I must inquire about your eyes. Why are they brown?"
"I don't know, I can't remember anything of my past life---" I immediately regretted saying that. It was hard to come up with good excuses for things that don't really matter, to cover up bigger things that do matter.
Tanya blinked and gasped quietly.
"So I don't know why. . ." I didn't miss the knowing glances she exchanged with her other coven members.
I cleared my throat.
"Of course, we should take you and allow you to take in the imposture's scent," Kate spoke, her eyes darting to Carmen. Carmen nodded and they both skipped up to me.
"We'll meet you at the house," Tanya called and I narrowed my eyes, but allowed them to take me. The Volturi cannot be lied to, but it was only fair to give them a small minute to try to cover up whatever they were hiding from me.
"I would like to go slow," I offered, granting them more time. They looked relieved, and I strolled after them.
We walked awhile in silence, until I decided to stop pondering their odd behavior and actually try to catch this newborn.
"Are the attacks centered more in Alaska or Canada?" My words shocked the girls but they answered professionally.
"More in Canada. We believe once they caught our scent and the size of our coven," Carmen fidgeted, something I did not miss,"They bailed and headed East."
I nodded, pondering how to even catch them. I wasn't worrying about the destroying, that would be the easy part. Lucky I could teleport.
"But now they're starting to get curious. In the past week we've caught their scent a lot more," Kate said thoughtfully.
Carmen motioned to a fern and I bent over and inhaled.
"Perfect, this will make it a lot easier. Thank you," For their sake, I was trying not to become fond of them---Jane would destroy them in a heartbeat--- but I couldn't help the gratitude that leaked through in my voice. After finding they were like me in their diet, I couldn't help but feel an attachment.
"Now, I think we can move a little faster back to your house," I addressed the tree trunk, turning away from their shocked and confused faces.
I heard Kate mumble, dazed, and then we were off.
I enjoyed the way the wind whipped my hair, I didn't usually get to run because I was often confined to the castle.
As we arrived at the house, Elezar, the male, hurried out to greet us.
He shook my hand, catching my eyes.
"Welcome to our home, of course there will be all the scents with such a big coven, but of course the Volturi must have the same problem," he chuckled and I accepted the odd introduction without suspicion. I didn't feel like myself.
Elezar and I hurried home, hoping we got there in time, and that Elezar's power would be strong enough. He was a hypnotist.
"Will you be able to stop her from suspecting anything?" I called to him as we ran full speed towards the house.
He just looked at me, eyes full of fear.
I crashed through the front door, scaring everyone.
"What's wrong?!" Irina looked terrified.
I couldn't talk. Why couldn't I talk! We didn't have time.
"Where is she?!" called a voice from upstairs and before I could respond she was hurtling towards the front door.
I tackled her, holding her back.
"YOU MUSN'T! YOU MUSN'T!" I screamed as the cold body struggled futilely in my arms.
She gritted her teeth and turned to stare into my eyes. I immediately closed them, not wanting to subject to the urge.
"ELEZAR!" I called and immediately she was still.
"You must leave. She does not know," I heard Elezar's soft voice say.
Thank god he was a hypnotist or the Volturi would kill all of us. There is no way we would've been able to convince her.
"Hurry, and NO detours!" the finality in my voice rang clear and they all nodded.
I added softly, "We WILL find a way to help her. Be safe . . . Cullens."
And with that they fled.
