Afterlife

Summary:
There's a new girl in the town of Forks, she's smart, musical and down to earth. Sound like anyone we know? So what happens when she meets the Cullens? ES FINITO! Also some people haven't realized this, I changed the title of this from, 'A New Point of veiw' to it's current title 'Afterlife'. Sorry for the confusion! Also in this and all of my other stories the pictures do not belong to me I don't claim them in any way what so ever and I put who does own them in the chapter. Don't sue me please.colorful-12.gif image by Erka_03Someone left me a review with a banner! I was so happy but then my mouse got knocked and the review got deleted. So if you are that amazing person who made me a banner, can you please try and put it in another review? I would be eternally greatfull.


Notes:
I own none of the characters in the fabulous Twilight Saga. The rest however are figments of my imagination. For anyone who knows me I picked the name for the main character because I couldn't think of a better one, and once I put it in there it just worked.

Chapter 14

Need. To. Blast. Music. I reached for my iPod slowly trying not to be noticed. I don’t think I’ve ever been in a car this silent. It was infuriating. Idiot noticed me going for the iPod.

What’re you doing? His thoughts asked.

I was trying to get my iPod. Don’t you people ever talk? I asked after I opened my mind to him.

"We talk," Edward said to me.

"You do a fine job showing it," I said sarcastically. Stupid boy, my thoughts said. He sniggered and I realized I didn’t put the shield back down. I slammed it down with all the force I had. He flinched.

Then he turned in his seat to glare at me. I put on my most innocent smile, the one I used to work over cops. His eyes narrowed, ah maybe he’s not as stupid as I think. I smirked and turned away looking at the window.

"Alice is going to love her," Carlisle said.

--------------------------------------------

We pulled up to this… house for lack of a better word. Mansion would probably be a better word.

The dark haired short little vampire came running out of the house. "Hi," she squealed. I don’t think I’ve ever heard someone with such a high pitched voice. "I’m Alice. You’re going to love it here I promise. Do you want to go shopping later?" She continued her voice growing higher as her excitement did.

"Shopping?" I winced. I hate shopping it the weirdest thing ever, especially when you can hear the thoughts around you, jealous, angry, vain humans. It is not my fault I have the damned looks that come with being a vampire. Sometimes it can be a pain in the ass.

"Not another one!" Alice wined and exclaimed at the same time. Wow I didn’t know someone could do that.

"I’m Jasper," a blond very tall vamp that was behind Alice said. This was the one with the scars. They were impressive to say the least.

"Kate," I said shaking his hand. "Battles in the South?" I asked meaning his scars. He smirked and nodded.

"How’d you know?" The large one with a grin on his face asked.

"I’ve been there myself. Odd vampires always seemed to be worried about the next meal." I said making a smallish joke, to see just if Emmett was as… humorous as the rest his family seemed to think.

He was.

I’ve never seen anyone laugh so much at such a small joke. The rest of the family was out on the porch now. I shook all of their hands mentally counting how many people were in this coven. Two more then the last time I was them, including Bella.

The motherly looking one lead the whole group into the living room, well except for Edward apparently he can’t be away from Bella for more then a few hours or he’ll go insane. At least we know they’re in love.

Esme was talking about how she heard from the "kids" that I was a good singer.

"Well sing something!" Emmett boomed.

"Ah…sure, pick a song" I said tossing him my iPod.

"Really? Ah, cool Ed never lets me touch his iPod!" He yelled and started looking through my iPod. "For god’s sake how many songs do you have?" He muttered after a few minutes.

"That’s only one of my iPods," I said with a smirk.

"How many do you have?" Jasper asked.

I was about to answer but Alice answered for me, "You have one for every decade? Cool can I see the one from the forties?" she asked.

"Ah sure," I said then started digging threw my bag trying to find the little case that held my twelve or so iPods. Three with my favorite movies, and nine for the 1920s onward (and yes they have those but you have to search really hard).

After I tossed her the iPod Emmett asked which one he had. "Oh, this decade’s, well one of them, I try to not listen to any of them past the 80’s to avoid suspicion."

"Okay sing this one," Emmett said throwing back the iPod. I looked at the song and shrugged. Not one of my favorites but it was a really good song. I probably don't like it cause it fits part of my life. I hit play and started to sing.

I watched the proverbial sunrise
Coming up over the Pacific and
You might think I'm losing my mind,
But I will shy away from the specifics...

'cause I don't want you to know where I am
'cause then you'll see my heart
in the saddest state it's ever been.

This is no place to try and live my life.

[Pre-Chorus]
Stop right there. That's exactly where I lost it.
See that line. Well I never should have crossed it.
Stop right there. Well I never should have said
that it's the very moment that
I wish that I could take back.

[Chorus]
I'm sorry for the person I became.
I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change.
I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
'cause who I am hates who I've been.
Who I am hates who I've been.

I talk to absolutely no one.
Couldn't keep to myself enough.
And the things bottled inside have finally begun
To create so much pressure that I'll soon blow up.

I heard the reverberating footsteps
Synching up to the beating of my heart,
And I was positive that unless I got myself together,
I would watch me fall apart.

And I can't let that happen again
'cause then you'll see my heart
in the saddest state it's ever been.

This is no place to try and live my life.

[Pre-Chorus x2]
[Chorus]

Who I am hates who I've been
And who I am will take the second chance you gave me.
Who I am hates who I've been
'cause who I've been only ever made me...

So sorry for the person I became.
So sorry that it took so long for me to change.
I'm ready to be sure I never become that way again
'cause who I am hates who I've been.
Who I am hates who I've been.

About half way threw the song Edward came into the room with Bella. "’You’re a very good singer," She said. "I’m Bella."

"I know. I’ve heard a lot about you." I said.
