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 29

I wanted to run after Kate as soon as she ran out of the door, but Carlisle and Esme held me back. "She needs time, Edward." Carlisle said, probably knowing I'd heard something as soon as she went into that, for lack of a better word episode.

"Okay seriously what happened Edward? I called you because I thought you'd be able to pull her out of it, but you just sat there staring at her like she was some kind of freak!" Alice shouted still annoyed, she hated when anyone of us were in pain in anyway, unless of course it was 'our own damn fault' as she so kindly put it. She was off though, I didn't see Kate as a freak at all, I was just... amazed. The sadness I'd seen in her so many times was finally coming to light.

This Damen person, I don't know if I liked him or not, but it was obvious that he made her happy, and it was possible that she hadn't been happy since that day. The memory was so clear, it was unnerving. To see it al happen in her point of view. I went through the memory in my head again. It was horrifying and obviously a huge turning point in my life. The end the last bit just closing her eyes and felling pain, confused me, if I hadn't seen it all in her point of view, or if the memory had gone longer I would know, but something wasn't right about that bit.

I sat there on the couch she'd been lying at long after my family had left. All the thoughts in my head were for once all my own. I was so confused. So many things made more sense now, but more things were thrown into confusion. Bella knowing somehow that Kate had been through a tragedy with the person she loved, probably more then anyone else now made sense. I just hoped that Bella wouldn’t have to feel anything like that again. No I'd make sure of it.

I don't know how long I'd been in the room when Esme came back in. "Edward, maybe now's the time to go find Kate, its been hours." she said putting a hand on my shoulder. She was depressed too learn that I was in the same spot that I was five hours ago, staring at the wall with a hopeless expression. So here mind said.

I nodded getting up and walking out the door of the bedroom. I went outside and smelt the air, Kate's scent, much like my own but with a feminine side, hung in the air but seemed to drift away. It wasn't enough to go on. I needed someone who was more attuned to vampire scent. Sighing, as this was not going to be easy, I headed to the border that separated our land and the Quileute. Sam was on patrol tonight it seemed, as his distinct wet-dog smell filled my nose.

"Is there a new blood sucker in town, or am I smelling you with perfume on?" Sam asked as he saw me coming.

"My sister," I said with a groan sitting on a fallen tree. We'd been getting a long better with the pack since the new born fight, none of us knew how long that would last but there was no point in ending it early just from doubts.

"You have a lot of sisters, if I am understanding right, is she a danger?" Sam asked.

"No, no." I said quickly, the last thing we needed was for the pack to be going after Kate. "She's my blood sister, we're twins."

"There are two of you?" Sam asked, trying to add humor to the conversation. I apparently looked a little more then depressed.

"Yeah, and she runs as fast as I do can you point me in the direction she went? Maybe I can find her." I asked rubbing my hand through my hair.

"She went to the North west, If I'm right she’ll be some where by the ocean in Canada right now, what made her run off?" he said, sensing that this was the cause of my distress.

"A lot of things," I said vaguely not wanting to go into detail right now. "Thanks." I said before running in the direction that Sam told me.

After nearly an hours worth of running I was about ready to give up. Go home and hope she’d come back, when I found her. She was sitting on a cliff that went right over the ocean her feet dangling off singing softly.

I tried to be perfect
But nothing was worth it
I don’t believe it makes me real
I thought it’d be easy
But no one believes me
I meant all the things I said

If you believe it’s in my soul
I’d say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I’m trying to let you know
That I’m better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don’t know how it got so bad
Sometimes it’s so crazy
That nothing can save me
But it’s the only thing that I have

If you believe it’s in my soul
I’d say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I’m trying to let you know
That I’m better off on my own

On my own

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn’t worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It’s hard to believe me
It never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along

If you believe it’s in my soul
I’d say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I’m trying to let you know
That I’m better off on my own

I walked up slowly knowing that she could hear me and knew who I was. "What was that?" I asked sitting down next to her, and speaking softly. I didn't want to scare her off.

I heard her snort softly at the thought, then said, "You mean the song or the memory?"

"Kind of both." I said chuckling a little, I was trying very hard to lighten up the situation, and she knew it too, because she had a very little smile on, that seemed more sad then happy.

"Well the song was Pieces by Sum 41, and the memory I don't want to talk about." She said still not looking at me; she only stared out at the ocean, not looking at anything at all. She looked absolutely miserable.

"You know I saw most of it, I'd like to understand," I said still talking softly.

"Yeah you probably would, what didn't you understand?" She asked finally looking at me. Her eyes were the slight green that our venom was, as if it had come up to try and make tears, but had stayed in her eyes.

"The last part you just blacked out and the pain got worse what was that?" I asked, that being the most confusing part, "before that you wee content, I don't get it."

"A vampire was running through the woods and smelt the blood; he came and bit me from behind." She said running a hand through her hair. I smirked knowing that it was a habit that we shared.

"What happened after that? You just wandered?" I asked, it was something I'd been wondering about for a long time. I knew she'd been alone for most of the time that she was changed.

"For the first few months I hung around, I wanted to make sure that all of you would be okay. Damen was probably the worse I was so worried about him. Eventually he went off to the war trying to get his mind off me, he told his parents. When he didn't come back after a few months I went to D.C. to try and figure out if he was okay. He died. After that I went back to Chicago to see where you, Mom, and Dad were up to. The Spanish Influenza had already spread though, and I was too late. I thought you were all dead until I found you here." She said, she choked up at the end of the explanation, and she wrapped he arms around her knees.

It made sense that she would cry, she'd lost everything she cared about in a little less than four months. I wrapped an arm around her shoulders as she cried, and thought back through all the experiences I had had with her since I met her back at the park. As far as I knew she was never one to break down and show her feelings, which made me wonder just how big of an effect that tat period of time had on her.

"Come on," I said after she'd cried herself out, "Let's go home, the others are really worried about you." She nodded and we got up and ran back to the house.
