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 1214 Review this Chapter
I opened the door of my room and quickly went inside.
My room was very spacious and had lots of furniture in it: a big cabinet stood in the far corner of the room, beside it was a desk with a big mirror hanging on the wall and king-size Victorian four-poster bed was in the center of the room.
Gianna had said that I was the only vampire in the house who has a bed because of the fact that I am also the only vampire who needed to sleep. I wasn't surprised by this - I didn't hunt like the others, I got all my strength from sleeping.
I strode towards the mirror to look at myself, and a beautiful girl stared back at me. I really looked like a princess - my magnificent mahogany hair flowed flawlessly down to my shoulders, and my white glowing skin matched my perfect pinkish red lips. The beautiful white dress that I was wearing was like the one that those princesses from the fairy tales used. My looks were almost perfect, except that my eyes were too black, empty and lifeless. I sighed. I hated being a vampire. I knew I was very beautiful and all, but so what? No big deal.
I went to my bed and curled into a ball. “I will definitely go to Forks tomorrow,” I murmured to myself. And then I closed my eyes.
I was in a very dark place - I couldn’t see anything. Weird, I thought to myself.
“Hello?” I shouted through the nothingness. My voiced echoed, but no one responded. I walked and I walked but found darkness. The feeling of being trapped and lonely overwhelmed me, and I started to feel afraid. I stopped walking and I knelt down, putting my hands on my face. Where am I?
Then suddenly I heard a low sob. I immediately looked up and saw a girl sitting just inches from where I was, her back to me. Her hair was mahogany just like mine, and she was wearing a damp sweat shirt and tight jeans. Where did she come from?
“Hey,” I said to her, but she continued to sob. A human. “Are you alright? I won’t hurt you don’t worry. I don’t harm humans.” I was about to reach out to her when she started to speak.
“Edward, help me please,”she murmured between sobs.
Edward? I assumed it was her brother. “Come now, don’t you cry there, we’ll find your brother.” I was surprised that my voice suddenly sounded very soothing. The girl slowly turned her head to me. I prepared myself to welcome her with a comforting smile.
But I was very shocked. The girl was… me. She stared at me, and I stared back. This version of me had wide chocolate-brown eyes in contrast to my deep black ones.
She looked at me pleadingly. “Please,” she pleaded. “Please help me.”
I couldn’t speak. Why on earth was I asking myself for help?
“Why? What happened to you?” I started to ask. It was weird, but no matter how much she looked like me, she was a completely different person. I slowly walked towards her, and reached out my hand to touch hers to make her feel that everything would be alright. But then-
I woke up with a start. Gianna was leaning towards me, her face very anxious.
“What?” I managed to ask between yawns.
“I was just passing the corridor when I saw white light coming from your room. I peeked in to see if you’re okay,” Gianna explained. White light? Was she serious?
“What white light? Have you forgotten that there’s no window in this place, Gianna?” I said humorously. She looked at me for a moment, then to my left wrist.
“The light was coming from that.” She pointed at my wolf bracelet, and I looked at it immediately. It was just the same as ever. I looked back at her confusedly before I remembered my plan.
“Hey, Gianna, do you want to accompany me to go outside tomorrow?” I asked her pleasantly.
She looked at me disapprovingly. “I thought we already talked about that,” she said weakly. I quickly tried to explain.
“No, no. I'm not talking about the parade. Do you know a place called Forks? It’s near Port Angeles in USA.” But I guess I went from bad to worse.
“You’re not planning to go there are you?” she questioned, scandalized.
“Well, I am. But I am taking you with me,” I said flatly.
“No, Lyka! Please be reasonable-" she protested but I interrupted her because there was nothing that could change my mind.
“Well, I am still going with or without you,” I said. “But I admit that it will be a lonely trip without you.”
She looked panicked and confused at first, and then she sighed. “Fine, FINE! I’ll go with you,” she said, irritated but clearly giving in.
I hid the triumph from my face as I walked towards my cabinet to prepare my outfit. “Would you book our plane tickets?" I asked, but Gianna was already shaking her head.
“Who said we need plane tickets?” I looked at her, confused. “I guess I forgot to tell you that I also have an ability,” she said, embarrassed.
My eyes widened in excitement. “Oh! Gianna! Tell me, tell me!” I demanded, excitedly. My best friend! Of course, you’d never be part of Marcus’s household if you didn't have a unique ability.
“Well, it’s not much. But I can teleport wherever you want,” she answered, and she quickly added, "Nothing much whatsoever.”
“Nothing much?” I repeated. I was shocked by her underestimation of her ability. “Gianna, that’s marvellous! I mean, really great! Exactly what we need,” I added, joy in my voice.
I hugged her tightly and kissed her cheeks. She looked quite embarrassed but happy at the same time. She was clearly expecting a different reaction from me.
“What the heck are you thinking? Do you expect me to mock you or something?” I demanded. She shrugged.
“Well, you tease Jane a lot,” she admitted. I sighed. Of course, she misinterpreted.
“Silly girl! I only mocked Jane because I don’t like her using her ability to hurt people. Not that I think that she's inferior to me, or whatever,” I explained.
She looked at me again, and sighed. “I'm sorry, Lyka." She hugged me, and I hugged her back.
“O.K, here's the deal," Gianna began. "I'll teleport you to Forks-"
“To the meadow, please,” I interrupted. I didn't want to waste any time - I wanted to meet the wolves as early as possible.
“Okay, to that meadow of yours, but then I’ll have to go somewhere with Heidi so I’ll be gone for about fifteen minutes. When I'm back, I can teleport you home again."
“Fifteen minutes? That’s extremely fast! What on earth can I do with fifteen minutes? I protested.
“Well, it is more of a guarantee. You can only have fifteen minutes at maximum before Marcus finds out that you went out of the palace,” she said seriously.
I didn’t protest anymore. I had already forgotten about Marcus. Once he found out that I went outside, I'd surely get punished. But this trip would be worth that punishment - I'd take the risk. I finally responded.
“Well, I guess we don’t have a choice, then,” I said dejectedly.
“So, tomorrow?” she said excitedly.
"Tomorrow,” I replied happily.
