Edward’s car alarm went off.

“Did you press a button?” I asked, gesturing to the keys that he was holding. He bolted up right. I un-zipped the tent and looked into the forest, a few miles ahead.

“You have got to be kidding me! We are on Lost Road and there are kids trying to steal our car? I thought this place was lost, as in ‘no people’.” I exclaimed.

He swore under his breath as we both got out of the tent quickly. He began to take the tent apart so fast I didn’t even know it was possible. The sun just broke over the horizon, basking everything in warm orange and pink sunlight.

“Oh, Edward. Don’t kill them.” I warned as we ran to his car. He stopped and I skidded to a halt, almost slipping from the morning dew on the forest floor.

“That gives me an idea,” he smirked. The kids still didn’t find a way to get the car to stop beeping. “Bella, why don’t you go scare them off.” He proposed.

“Why me?” I asked too soon. I rolled my eyes with realization, “they might have nightmares for a week!” I argued. He grinned,

“Exactly. Please, Love? Try your best. Just scare them off.” he pleaded.

“Hmpf.” I crossed my arms but reluctantly nodded, “okay.” I cleared my throat as Edward and I walked towards the car, which was still beeping.

I sighed as we approached them-they were never going to get the Volvo to stop beeping. “I’ll wait here.” Edward said to me, too low for them to hear. He hid behind a tree, crouching to watch. I nodded as he gave me thumbs up sign before I walked towards them, growling.

“You know, it’s not nice to steal other people’s cars.” I said to them. They stopped dead as soon as they heard my voice, and then they turned towards me. I smiled as evilly as possible, my red eyes were un-covered because I didn’t have my sun-glasses with me-part of the reason Edward wanted me to do this.

“Look Lady,” one began. I ran to the side of him, putting my hands on his shoulders gently. I turned him around so he could face me. I did it in less than a second,

“I have a name-‘Lady’ isn’t it. You don’t know what you have gotten into; this was the wrong car to steal.” My teeth were whiter then I was sure he had ever seen. He just stared at me, especially because now that the sun was high enough in the sky, I was glittering.

“And how’s that?” another, and I was sure, older guy said to me. I took my hands off of the other 15 year old shoulders and ran next to him.

“Let us put the facts together,” I smiled sweetly up at him, “I glitter. I’m cold as ice. I have red eyes. I can move faster than you will ever imagine. Oh, and yes-I can kill you with one twitch of my fingers.” I paused for a moment, “should I demonstrate on this hammer-if you don’t mind?” I asked them all. They still stared unmoving at me. They weren’t sure to run or not.

I picked up the hammer from the ground-it was going to be used to crack our windows if they had enough time. “hmmm.” I said vaguely, wadding the hammer’s head into a metal ball, imprints of my fingers were in it. The handle split into a million wooden pieces, which fell to the forest floor around me.

“Wha?” one of the kids let out stupidly.

“Form coherent sentences, please.” I rolled my eyes, throwing the metal ball so they couldn’t reach.

“And you know what the sad part about all of this is?” I asked them. They still stared, unmoving, at me. “No? Well, it’s just that this happens to be my car.” one kid was gaping at me for so long he could have passed for a statue. I turned my face into what a Halloween mask would look like (I found I could change my face instead of my whole body when I shape shifted too), for only a second. He dropped a crow bar, still frozen, and it landed with a thud on the ground.

“What’s the matter-vampire got your tongue?” I asked him. He suddenly broke out of his stupor and screamed so loud it might have actually been louder than Rosalie’s.

“Let’s get out of here, this chick is crazy!” one kid yelled, bolting from the car and down the road, grabbing his bike. Others did so as well, grabbing their tools as fast as they possibly could before grabbing their bikes and trying to get on them. I think they were so flustered it was hard for them to even ride it.

“Don’t steel any more cars-or that hammer that I had will be your head.” I warned growling, which made them ride faster. Edward, who had stopped the beeping with his car keys, had to grab a tree for support he was laughing so hard.

“Their thoughts! Best part of it is, nobody will believe them!” I’d never seen Edward laughing so hard.

“That was cruel. I thought one of them was going to start crying! And to think we could have asked them for directions.” I grabbed the tent from him and put the bag in the trunk again.

“It was funny and you know it. You were great, Bella. Wait till Emmett hears-you did a better job than he could have ever done.” He kissed my cheek as I got into the car.

“I knew you could do it.” He chuckled as he put his keys in the ignition.

“That group of boys was only 15 to 20 years old. It was mean.” I muttered.

“You truly are a police chief’s daughter-you just stopped 5 teenagers from steeling any more cars for the rest of their lives.” He pointed out.

“Well…I suppose I did, but that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t right about the nightmares. Though this time they will have nightmares about me for not only 1 week but maybe even 1 year.” I said as we drove, following the kids who wanted to steel our Volvo.

“Perfect.” Edward chuckled as he passed them, he waved to them happily and they all screamed. Edward laughed and made a turn to the right.

“We’re in Canada, if I take this down it should lead us to town and then we should be able to make our way to a highway. I’ve finally figured out where we should go.” He announced, “I found the way through one of the kid’s thoughts.” He explained.

“But where are we go-?” my question was cut short. Edward’s cell phone rang. On the caller ID it said ‘Alice’.

“Uh, oh.” I muttered as Edward’s smile vanished.
