Gone and never coming back.

Edward leaves, Bella moves to Jacksonville. She adopted two twin sisters, and a brotherly friend vampire, but when another vampire wants one of the twins, all they can do is run. Readers- I’m moving accounts. This was a shared account with someone who doesn’t really like me anymore. So I’ll post this to all the stories I wrote (I’ll only continue some) then you can read them. Continuing: Complications, Goneandnevercomingback., Marionette, mynewLife, and SpilledMascara. If what you read wasn’t listed and you want it continued, tell me through the “contactauthors” button on the “elainamorrigan” account why I should continue. -elle/Twizzler

I really enjoyed writing this story and I hope you enjoy reading it! (It may seem familiar to some, the story had a problem and wouldn't cooperate, so I took it off the site to change it.)

The names he got for me were for Samantha, Wendy, and Grace Richards. Funny how Richards was his last name, I doubt he thought I noticed, but I did. He told me when he first met me, after we were somewhat safe and not eye to eye with the enemy. “Leo Aaron Richards” he said. I wondered how he got those names, he probably knew them and something probably happened to them. But I wouldn’t pester him about it.

“Hey, Leo? Can I ask you something?” I said, walking into his hotel room one door down. He was lying on the bed tossing a baseball up and catching it at blinding speed. I almost rolled my eyes at that.

“You just did, but yes you may ask another,” He replied, grinning.

“Thanks smartass!” I growled.

He laughed, “Seriously, what?”

“I was wondering about something you did earlier this week,” I hesitated, biting my lip.

“Spit it out Bella!” he said laughing at me.

I took a deep breath, “Why can you cry?”

He tensed, so did I.

“I was upset.” He said.

“Leo, there’s something your not telling me.” I said.

He narrowed his eyes, “No there isn’t.”

“Leo.” He started to growl, his anger burned like fire. I winced and took a step back.

April ran into the room, “Look!” she said excitedly, pulling Summer in behind her.

“April, it’s okay. No big deal.” April gave her the yes-it-is-now-stop-arguing-with-me look, she was just like Alice sometimes. Summer sighed, “My throat doesn’t hurt anymore, it’s really no big deal!”

I smiled at her, “That’s good sweetheart.”

Summer rolled her eyes and they walked out of the room arguing over it’s importance.

As soon as they were out of the room I looked down, shame was rolling off of him in strong waves.

“I’m sorry.” He said, “I shouldn’t be to touchy about it, it’s just that Jude said I shouldn’t tell others about my ability, and he’s usually right about stuff like that,” I didn’t look back up at him, “Bells look at me, I’m sorry.”

I smiled slightly, “No, I shouldn’t pester you.”

He mumbled something like “I still feel bad.” then looked up at me, “I can do something with emotions but I can’t control it, I’m sorry, I try but it’s like some kind of bull. Just when I think I have it, it throws me off. It makes me feel weak, then that makes it worse.” frustration was clear in his tone, and I started to feel frustraighted. My forehead creased and I felt hot.

“See?” he noticed, “sorry.”

“And you need to hide that?” I said.

“It can easily be used against me.” He said, shrugging.

No, I’d hate to make him feel bad. Poor guy is like Jasper, only worse. Why was I constantly being reminded of my past? Of my best friend? Of my brothers and sisters? Of Edward?

“Are you guys hungry?” I called to the back seat. I needed to be better at avoiding those trains of thought.

“Yeah.” Summer said.

“Okay, what do you want to eat?” I said, smiling.

“hmm…I’ll have a hamburger.” She said.

“I want chicken nuggets!” April called.

I should probably get them more things to do, they were low on their coloring paper.

I sighed, their birthday was coming up, and I wanted ten to still be special.
