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.

I can Fly!!!

All we have to do is get through the week

I thought to myself over and over again. It was what Kate had told me Monday, and it was what I’m telling myself now. It was continually harder to deal with three new vampires, especially after just getting used to having Kate around.

I found myself spending more and more time with Bella. It was hard to believe that three new vampires could add so much chaos. It wasn’t just Bridget, Aaron and Maxi, though. It was the rest of the family as well. Mostly Emmett.

Let’s just say he enjoyed playing practical jokes on the three. It was bad…

He told Maxi if he ate human food he’d be less thirsty. He must have downed three bags of chips, a six pack of soda, and enough cheese, meat and fish to feed a small country before he realized that Emmett was lying. I think he spent an hour and a half puking his guts out.

Then when it was his turn to take them hunting, he told Bridget that the small the animal the better the blood, and gave her a bug. Took her twelve minutes to figure out she’d never even get one drop a blood from that beetle.

Aaron was probably the worst though. Everyday Emmett told him something that was not entirely true. For example he told him that Rosalie could see through walls. We didn’t realize why he was just sitting on the couch doing absolutely nothing for six or seven hours. Then Emmett decided it would be hilarious to tell him he could turn into a bat. Again it took us a while to figure out why he was in Kate’s words, ’constipated, by the window’ and tell him otherwise.

They don’t listen to Emmett at all anymore. Not even a little. For everything Emmett even says, they check with someone else. Kate mostly, but she has taken to locking herself in her room. It’s even annoying to her. So when she’s no where to be found, it luck of the draw to who they ask next.

And once Emmett realized just how much this annoyed us, he picked it up. Telling them everything from, ’You know that doesn’t go there’ to ’Why aren’t you guys just teleporting upstairs’. They don’t know enough about vampires to know the truth from the ‘there is no way in hell that’s right‘, which is Kate’s favorite phrase for anything they ask her.

We took refuge. I went to Bella’s. Jasper hid in the library, and just hides on top of the bookshelves when ever they come looking. Carlisle goes to work. Alice goes to the mall. Rosalie glares at them until they go away. Esme is the only one patient enough to deal with their questions.

I am currently trying to get into the house without being noticed. This is not as easy as it seems. I couldn’t just go through the window or garage. Garage would make too much noise, and we’d vampire proofed, all of the windows a long time ago, so no one could get in unless, they’re opened from the inside. I couldn’t call anyone in the house to open a window because, they’d hear Jasper’s phone and give him away. Rose, or Emmett would just tell them, and Esme would be disappointed in me for going to such lengths to avoid them.

So I had no option but to find the door they were farthest away from and sprint to my room as fast as possible. I hid by the kitchen door for five minutes before Maxi was on the other side of the house, and then ran for it. I was so… close!

Bridget caught me just as I was getting to my door. "Hey Edward, I’ve got a question for you, why is no one ever around? Esme made it seem like you guys were usually home."

"Uh…."

"Because you lot ask too many damn questions!" Kate said showing up to the right of the door way.

"Oh. Well that figures, while were on the subject is Emmett…"

"Nothing Emmett says is true. Nothing. Ever." Kate said. "Now go tell Aaron and Maxi."

Bridget smiled and went to go tell them and I walked into my room. "Thanks." I told Kate, realizing that she’d followed me in.

"It was annoying me too. Here’s the list I put together for your reception. There’s like twenty five songs, I’m pretty sure you know them all."

"Yeah," I said looking through them quickly and changing my shirt, "Is that all you’ve been doing lately?"

"Pretty much, but I’ve also been modifying my custom instrument slightly to make it look like a normal keyboard, incase Maxi and Bridget aren’t as ready for human contact as we hope them to be."

"Not Aaron?"

"I worry about Aaron. I don’t think he likes… well feeding from animals."

"Really?" I asked I hadn’t exactly noticed. Since the day he woke up he seemed, kind of emotionless. I could never exactly read his thoughts either. He was always listening to something and putting what he was hearing to the front of his mind.

"You’ve never gone hunting with them? I thought we all went at least once." Kate asked while going around my room looking at the CDs I had.

"I never did."

"You’re going tomorrow then."

"But-"

"Tough. I want to hang with Bella tomorrow anyways. Which I know is going to be your excuse." She said walking out the door just as there was a crash from downstairs.

"Emmett!" we heard Aaron yell. I looked at her, and we both raced downstairs.

Emmett was standing there with part of Aaron’s drum set, completely ripped in half. "I am so, so sorry." Emmett was saying, but Aaron was just looking at the drum.

"Whatever, didn’t I say not to twist it like that?" Aaron said angrily.

"Yea I know, I just I don’t know, I’m really sorry, I’ll buy you a new one. The same exact one if you like." Emmett said a little pleadingly, he genuinely felt bad.

"Yea… I’m just going to go for a walk." Aaron said storming out the front door.

"Was there anything special about those drums?" I asked Kate as she went to look at the pieces of drum.

"Not really. I mean Max has put so many holes through his drums, I’m surprised he’s so angry." She said looking inside of the hollow middle.

"Well, let him cool off, maybe we can ask what’s wrong when he comes back." Esme said. She’d come into the room when she’d heard the crash as well.

We all agreed.
