1. The Vision
Rating 5/5 Word Count 657 Review this Chapter
Alice stood still, absorbing her latest vision of my bleak future. I didn’t really see the point. It was just going to be another normal, boring day at Forks High School, one of the most sunless places in the United States. I tuned her out, listening to the thoughts of a ridiculous boy.
Isabella Swan is coming tomorrow, he was crowing. She’s supposed to be really pretty. Maybe we could hook up . . . he added hopefully.
I snorted. Half the boys in the school were thinking the exact same thing.
Alice caught my attention. She was consumed in giggles. The rest of the family looked over at her with curiosity. Edward, you have to see this, she thought, still chuckling. She replayed her vision in her head. I read her thoughts and saw the vision as she played it.
My mouth dropped open in complete surprise. The vision was of me, a vampire, locked in a passionate kiss with a brown-eyed, pale-skinned human girl. Alice burst into another fit of laughter when she saw my expression. That is you in two months, she thought smugly, enjoying my complete incredulity. If I was human, I would be blushing bright red. As it was, all I could do was stand frozen in utter shock.
“Hey, we want to know, too!” Emmett’s good-natured complaint brought me back to the current time and place. I shot a basilisk glare at Alice, but she had already begun telling Rosalie, Emmett, and Jasper.
“Two months from now, I can see Edward making out with a pretty little human girl,” Alice snickered.
Emmett paused in shock, and then began roaring with laughter. “Ooh, Eddie’s kissing a human,” he chortled. “She must be pretty.” Prettier than normal, seeing as you’ve never even . . . he didn’t even bother to finish the thought, noticing my glare directed at him and snickering even more.
“Hmm, let’s see where this is in . . . maybe, two years.” Alice froze, going into her visionary trance. Despite my disgust, I was still curious, so I peeked at Alice’s vision as she saw it.
Once again, I was taken completely by surprise. I, Edward, the odd man out, was marrying the same brown-eyed girl. The wedding was obviously done by Alice; the whole area was completely decked out with celebratory streamers and ribbons. The girl herself, though, was absolutely gorgeous, at least to me. She was wearing a beautiful, white, lacy dress- the type she would have married me in when it was 1918.
I blinked in disbelief. Alice snapped out of her vision. “So, Edward, what do you think? The girl’s very pretty.” Her eyes sparkled mischievously.
“What did you see now?” asked Rosalie. She tried not to show that she cared, but her thoughts gave her away. He thinks that she’s pretty, obviously, but never even looked at me! She was thinking jealously.
Alice described her vision. “Edward’s marrying her. She’s very pretty,” she added, snickering at me.
“I’ve never seen her in my life!” I shot back, defending myself. I glared at Emmett, who was thinking some very graphic thoughts.
Emmett just laughed and raced me to the door. Don’t worry; I won’t let you forget this, he thought smugly.
And, needless to say, he kept his word. A big, sly grin spread across his face every time he saw me, usually with a thought to go with it. I still can’t see you kissing someone passionately, he admitted at the end of the day, with a huge evil smile.
I grimaced. “Neither could I, until I saw that vision.” I made a face.
Alice giggled quietly. Just wait until it actually plays out, she thought.
I was sure that it would change my life, but . . . it can wait, I decided.
