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.

Everyone was staring at me after my, ok I admit it was odd, way of telling Maxi. "What?!?! It hasn't been three days yet! Even if they aren't screaming they sure as hell aren't done changing. Not even he is! Why do you think he can listen to us talk without wincing. His power is just stronger because its affecting himself, which allowed him to wake up!" I ranted. I hated being stared at like I was a freak I had gotten that enough in the a hundred and seven years I'd been on this earth!

They all blinked at me. After all of that, they still didn't have anything to say? "Y-you," Edward started to stutter out. Finally someone’s talking, "You got that from five minutes just sitting there?" Okay I'm weirder then I look what's the big deal?

"Err.... yeah, and frankly knowing Maxi if I didn't tell him he'd be complaining and yelling for the next two days, so I did you a favor," I said trying to make myself seem like less of a nut.

"Right," Carlisle started trying to get control of the situation, "Maxi stay put, Kate's right and you don't want to mess up the transformation by moving. The rest of you lets go I'm sure Maxi needs sometime to think about what's happened." We all started filling out of the room.

"Kate hang on a sec," Maxi said quickly before I left the room.

"Sure what’s up?" I asked as Jasper left the room and shut the door behind him.

"Can I ask you a question?"

"You just did but go ahead and ask another," I said trying to lighten the mood. This wasn’t like Maxi usually he’s really light hearted.

"Do I have to drink blood?" he asked sounding a bit nervous.

"Oh, that! Yeah you do but not necessarily human. The Cullens and I drink animal blood like bears, and deer." I said wondering how I’d forgotten to mention that. "Well, should I leave or do you have more questions?"

"I have a lot more questions, but I’m thinking it’ll be easier if we wait for them to wake up." He said nodding at our other two friends.

"Yeah probably." I muttered in low voice, then louder I said, "Get some sleep Maxi, you’ll probably need it." Seeing as he wouldn’t sleep for the rest of his life.

He nodded and I headed towards the door. I didn’t know what to do. The only possibility I could think of was wait but-

"Thanks Kate," Maxi said, cutting off my train of thought just as I was opening the door.

"No problem," I said not exactly being truthful. But the hospital raid had been really fun, if not a bit of trouble.

I walked out the door and started walking not really sure where I was going. I was still thinking about what I could do to help. But there was nothing. The Cullens were all doing their own things. Edward was at Bella’s, Alice and Rose were going through the clothes they’d gotten at the mall. Esme was working on her garden, Carlisle probably went to the hospital. And Emmett had conned Jasper into a video game war with him.

I considered going to join Emmett and Jasper, or Esme for a second but, I had no idea how to play halo, that left Esme. I could try I suppose but she might want to be alone.

Before I could completely talk myself out of it, Alice came dancing out of her room, two foot piles of clothing on both of her arms and said, "Go she wants to get to know you better."

I nodded and walked outside. "Hi, Esme. Do you mind if I join you?"

"Of course not sit down, have you ever garden before?" she asked smiling brightly.

"I used to watch my grandma garden a little. She never let me actually garden though."

"Why not?"

"When we were five Edward and I kind of thought her garden was where we should play with Ed’s toy truck. She never trusted us out there alone again." I said laughing. Esme laughed with me.

"Why would you just want to watch?" Esme asked.

"It was way better then going fishing with or granddad in the lake with no fish." I laughed. Remembering the old lake that was on the lot right next to our grandparents’ house. It was more of a pond, for decoration. There was no fish in it at all, but grandpa somehow thought there was and he dragged Edward out there every time we went over.

Esme and I worked on her garden for about an hour until we were interrupted. Oddly enough by a carton of eggs hitting the window just above the garden. We looked past the eggs to see Emmett and Jasper, both looking scared but slightly amused. Emmett was the one to throw the eggs there was no doubt about that.

I looked at Esme, thinking that she’d be angry, at least a little bit. But she just looked resigned. Does shit like this happen often? I followed her inside thinking that if there was even a little chance of Emmett getting yelled at I wanted to see it. I was trying to hold back my smile as I looked at the two.

Esme looked at the two boys as well then at the window, and to the ground where there was what looked like a thousand wood splinters from one of t eh tables chairs. "Out," Esme said simply shooing us all into the living room.

"Alright is she angry I can’t tell?" I asked as I sat down on the couch.

"A little frustrated, not in the least bit surprised and a bit happy, though I don’t know why." Jasper said.

"She’s happy cause I just gave her an excuse to clean the whole kitchen," Emmett said as he sat on the floor plugging some kind of game in. "Hey Kate you want to play?" He asked.

"Depends what is it?" I asked as I picked up an controller.

"Need for Speed: Carbon, it’s a racing game, really fun."

"I’ll play a few," I said not wanting to go upstairs and face the raff of Alice who had started to go through my clothes, and was waiting to ambush me as soon as I walked up the stairs. Jasper realized she was upstairs too, because he climbed up the stairs to say hello. Alice now fully distracted forgot about me, thank goodness. Bt I’d already agreed to play.

Playing video games with Emmett is like nothing else. He gets so into it its hilarious. At one point he got up and started moving with the controller to try a beat me. It was hilarious but he still didn’t win. Out of the whole time we played he only one once, and when he did he jumped up and down like a maniac shouting "It’s my birthday." Needless to say I laughed my ass off. The time actually went by really fasted and I was surprised when Edward walked in through the front door.

"That late already?" I asked as I looked at Edward. "I got to stop now Emmett I have something to do."

"Alright hey Edward do you want to play?"

"Actually Emmett I think Rose is looking for you." Emmett got up and raced upstairs looking for Rose. "Have you been playing video games with him all day?" Edward asked. Probably wondering how sane I was. But hey it was fun.

"No, only since five."
"Its ten."

"Whoops." I said shrugging. He shook his head and went upstairs to change and then go back to stay with Bella. After a few minutes I rushed up to my room trying to be sneaky about it. No one noticed so I think I did okay.

As I walked into the room I mentally cursed Alice, she had put piles and piles of clothes into my room, I actually hadn’t realized just how much she bought for me. But it was like there were mountains of new clothes. I shook my head, carefully moving around them to try and get to the boxes that I’d brought from Chicago.

I took out my favorite sweatpants that were so old that there were multiple holes in them and a Green Day band tee, then making my way over to the duffle I’d brought. I wasn’t paying so much attention this time though and I ended up falling. "Very Vampire like." I muttered sarcastically to myself then just levitating it over to me not wanting to trip again. I grabbed my best head phones out and slowly made my way over to my custom instrument, which was currently assembling itself. Trust me you never want to have to put that thing together by hand it takes forever! Even if you are a vampire.

I sat down pulling in the head phones so the rest of the house wouldn’t hear and started to play.
