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 28

Okay just relax I thought sitting in my, um, room. I guess it’s mine now. I thought as I sat on the old couch I'd moved into the room from attic. Maybe I could try and think about it, was another of my common thoughts, as I sat there in the empty room.

I was riding my bike through the country lane a few miles from our house; Damen was riding behind me on his own bike. Speeding up he passed me and led us down the road where our tree was. Our tree was a huge maple out in the country where he took me for a picnic on our first date. We put out bike against the tree and sat down enjoying each other’s company. The wind was blowing through the trees' leaves and I could smell spring hanging on the air.

"Do you want to dance?" Damen asked suddenly. He did this a lot, just thought of something we could do that had no relation at all to what we were currently.

"Without music?" I asked laughing a little.

"Sure we don't need it," he said laughing and standing in front of me. "May I have this dance milady?" he asked joking, and putting his hand out for me to take.

"Of course," I said, taking hold of his hand, and letting him pull me up. We danced like we always did, me giggling and Damen looking out his feet, making sure he didn't step on me. He really wasn't a dancer, but he'd wanted to learn when we met, and after a weeks worth of lessons he decided it was good enough. He was surprised when he still stepped on my feet. I didn't mind though, it was cute.

He spun me around, rather gracefully compared to what he usually did, and when I turned back to him, he was on one knee. I honestly think I had a heart attack. "Wh-what are you doing Damen?"

"I think you know. Will you marry me?" Did Edward always have to be right? Just last week we'd been talking about how he was sure that we were going to marry, and the fact that, I'd probably be to happy to talk if he actually did. Sure enough that was the case. So I nodded. He laughed probably knowing what was wrong with me, and swept me up into a kiss that made me melt.

I felt the sky change before I saw it. As we broke away I looked up at the sky, it had turned black with rain. "We better go," I muttered as he looked up as well.

"Yeah," he said kissing me one more time. He went to get our bikes, as I kept looking at the sky. There was something off... I think it was about then that I heard the footsteps. The next thing I knew, somebody had me in a choke hold with a gun pressed against my head.

"Jewelry, money, come on cough it up," whoever the guy was said to Damen. I slipped off the ring that Damen had given me and put it in my pocket.

"What kind of thief comes way out here?" I asked incredulously, this wasn't making sense to me, everything seemed unreal to me.

"There's a farm house about a mile past the forest," Damen said looking at me. He was afraid, that was apparent. "Look," he said to the guy, "I'll give you my wallet but you have to let her go."

"No I don't think I will," he said chocking the hand gun, and pointing it back at my head. I slowly realized that he would shoot us anyways whether he got our money or not. Damen had realized this too. Because he had his hands up, and were slowly walking toward, the thief with his wallet in his hand.

He handed the wallet over to him, and while he was busy taking it, punched him. The guy fell backwards, with the gun and wallet still in his hand, and I smiled at Damen. But he was looking horrified. He shouted something, but I couldn't hear him, because I'd just felt the pain. I looked down to see a red blood stain in the side of my dress. I put my hand to it and pulled it back looking at the blood. For a second I didn't know what it was.

I fell back against the tree, not able to stand up anymore, and looked up at Damen. I could hear what he was saying again as he ran to my side and took my hand. "I-I'm going to go get help okay? Hang on Kate, please? I can't lose you." I nodded knowing he wasn't going to make it. Watching as he got his bike and sped down the road, I felt content. I would have married him, I thought as he turned down the next lane, that’s good enough for me.

The thief had gotten up and scurried away back into the forest. I looked up at the sky just above the forest, waiting to die. I looked down at the actual forest, and saw a black figure walking towards me. The next thing I knew there was a sharp pain in my neck and I blacked out.

I came out of the memory to see the Cullens staring back at me, with my brother in the middle. "Kate you're finally up!" Alice squealed, "Edward you are no help at all."

"Kate dear, you were shaking," Esme said, worried. I didn't see anyone, but my brother though and he was staring at me with the same horrified face Damen had had in my memories. As I thought this I saw Edward wince, and I realized my mind was open. In the next second I was out of the house and running down the driveway.
