How can this be possible? Me? A different vampire? These questions erupted from Bella after her talk with Alice in her room. She knew something is different from her. She knew that it is impossible for everything to settle down just that. And now, she face this new challenge in her life that might break her clutch to Edward and to the rest of the world.
I made this out of my head one day while reading New Moon and still continued to rack my brain after Eclipse. Hope you enjoy it.

When I opened my eyes, we were in the lobby already. I looked behind me to see Gianna trembling. She was always terrified when she had done something that would surely piss off the Royals.
“Gianna, relax!" I said, indignantly. "I won’t let them harm you, I promise you that." I smiled at her, as proof of my promise. I wouldn't let anything happen to my friend. Gianna looked at me helplessly then she nodded slightly. After seeing that she was okay, I immediately started walking to the Royal’s chamber, readying myself for the confrontation.
The door was already open when we arrived; I immediately entered the room, with Gianna behind me.
It was Marcus. His face was contorted with rage. He looked as if he was ready to commit a murder right then. I looked at him, straight in the eyes, face blank. I'd show him who the boss of my life is!
“Yes?” I asked, impatiently, one eyebrow raised and my arms folded across my chest.
“You!" he said, angrily. How dare you go outside to the upper grounds! How many times do I have to tell you that you are not allowed up?"
This time, the rage that I had hid for a long time suddenly erupted from me.
“Why, Marcus, why?! Why am I not allowed to go up while everybody can?” I demanded, furiously.
“Because I simply said so! Is that not enough reason for you?” Marcus returned, questioningly.
“That’s the lamest reason that I have ever heard,” I spat, menacingly without taking my eyes off of him.
He glared at me with fierce eyes for a moment, before he shifted his gaze to Gianna. I felt her tremble behind me.
“You,” he said. “I kept you because I thought your ability would help to keep peace and order in the household. I never imagined that it will betray the sacred rules that I imposed here.”
“M-my lord-" Gianna started to speak, but I stepped directly in front of her, meeting Marcus' intense stare.
“Leave her out of this, it’s all my doing," I argued.
“If it wasn't for her ability then-" he started, but of course I wouldn’t give him a chance.
