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.

Rating 5/5 Word Count 668 Review this Chapter
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.
“I am also the law here, Marcus! It’s just as normal for her to obey me, isn’t it?”
Marcus looked at me in disbelief. This was the first time that I’d ever argued back to him. And I had no intentions whatsoever to stop acting like this until I had my way.
“Then I guess I shall take your title then,” he replied.
I stared at him for a second, and then I smirked.
“Let me see you try,” I warned him. The only reason I hadn't run away from this place yet was that I am bound by the laws of the Royals.
Marcus eyed me as if ready to cause me pain. My expression, however, was bored.
“Go back to your room now,” he ordered.
“Only if you will give me your word that I’ll be allowed to go up again,” I returned.
“Never!” he cried at once.
“Then I guess you leave me no choice.” I shrugged.
I grabbed Gianna’s hand and prepared to mimic her powers to go back to Forks, when suddenly, Marcus stood up.
“Wait!” he said quickly. I smirked.
“Once every seven days,” he said.
“Three,” I bartered.
“Two, then!” he surrendered.
I grinned. “Deal.”
I turned my back on him, grabbing Gianna by her hand and stormed away, smiling at my triumph.
But then suddenly, the vampire boy’s face flashed in front of my eyes, and as if it was a kind of a trigger, I felt a horrible, agonizing sense of longing. Who is he? What is with him that makes me feel like this?
When we were already outside of Marcus’ chamber, I faced Gianna.
“Do you have a list of names of vampires or covens, maybe?” I asked.
“Y-yes, as long as they were not newborns, why?” she wondered.
“I’ll just have to do some research” I quickly said.
I guess I’ll just have to find out who that boy is……..
