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 30

For a whole week things went by as I guessed it normally did in the Cullen household being new here I really didn't know if this was normal. I wasn't paying attention to it though. I was remembering things more often now and it was having me worried. I didn't know what I'd do if I remembered something worse while Edward was around, and didn’t close my mind. I was just trying to avoid suspicion, as I went through the days. It wasn't that hard. Edward was always at Bella's so all I had to do was try and stop Alice from seeing anything about me.

At the end of the week after I had lived through my changing for the umpteenth time, I got fed up. It was something about this place. I didn't know how to stop it, and it hit me more each time.

I took my chance when the family went hunting, Edward was at Bella's and I had the house to myself. I figured I'd leave my Jag and Truck here. I'd already sent my keyboards on to my house in Canada. I packed some jeans and shirts that Alice had brought last week, she'd thrown out all of my old clothes, all but my vintage band tees those of which I'd saved for the clothes monster.

They cared about me. That made it harder to leave. I'd moved around a lot sure, but I never really tried to move away from people. I thought back to their reactions when Edward had brought me back. He was right they'd all been worried about me. Esme fused over me for an hour. Alice was all jumpy right behind Esme the whole time, asking me if I was alright every few seconds. Emmett and Jasper were more tolerable. Both had just given me hugs, and told me everything would be okay. Carlisle made sure that there was nothing wrong with my head, with a few quick tests. I had taken it all in good grace. Remembering vaguely when I'd broken my leg climbing a tree, and Mom had fused over me until I could walk without my leg hurting.

As I walked to the end of the driveway I remembered more and more things about my old life. This was the exact reason I had to leave, if I remembered too much about my old life I'd get depressed, and when I get depressed I get crazy. It isn't pleasant.

I groaned as Edward's Volvo came into the driveway, I couldn't run he'd already seen me, with a bag on my shoulder driving slowly out of the drive way. "What’s going on?" He asked, getting out of his car. I put my hand on my face closing my eyes resting there for half a second; this wasn't going to be good.

"I'm leaving," I said with a sigh. Sure enough his mind went into over drive, disappointment and betrayal coming through more then anything else.

"Why," he choked out anger in his voice. I remembered all the time we'd gotten angry at each other opening my minds a little so he could see the memories. He looked at me confuse.

"That's just it, I can't go five seconds without being reminded of something of my past. I can't stay here it will make me go crazy," I said closing my eyes again.

"Oh yes, staying in Chicago where you grew up will give you so much less memories then if you were here," he said sarcastically. He was still angry.

"Yeah it will," I said seriously, "Chicago's changed so much since we were growing up, there's almost nothing of the old days, and if there are I avoid them like the plague. The people here remind me of the people back then. It so frustrating, going through all the things that I went through back them and remembering what I lost. Just because I found part of it again here with you doesn't mean that it hurts any less." I said desperately I didn't want to leave on bad terms.

"That doesn't explain why you have to leave! You can work through this! How else would you have been to be able to go one for one hundred and seven years!" he shouted, trying to get me to stay.

"Because it makes me go crazy!" I shouted back at him, "and not Alice's type of fun crazy! The asylum kind of crazy!" We just sat there staring at each other, knowing the other had a valid point but too stubborn to give in.

Our staring contest was interrupted though, as Carlisle came running out of the forest and up to us, "What's going on?" he asked, but quickly went on, "Never mind. Kate there's been and incident at the hospital."

"What kind of incident?" I asked quickly there wasn't a whole lot that could connect me to anyone at the hospital except...

"Bridget, Maxi, and Aaron have been in a car accident."
