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.

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.

Kate POV

The next few days only got worse. Aaron had yet to come back, and we were all getting worried. Eventually Carlisle called a family meeting to figure out exactly what we were going to do about him. We had to make sure he wasn’t dead or causing trouble, and since we didn’t want the Volturi anywhere near here he was our responsibility.

"I say we send out a search party." Maxi was saying, as we all sat in the living room, hoping the door would open and Aaron would come in. It wasn’t likely but we could dream couldn’t we. None of us wanted to kill him, if that was the case. I was looking at the worse possibilities. Trust me it helps, anything that actually happens seems a lot better. Unless what you were thinking is reality, then well, you’re screwed.

I of course was thinking something along the lines of him coming across a town, and wreaking havoc, Maxi not being there to quench the thirst.

"If we look too early it could make things worse. Alice have you seen anything yet?" Carlisle asked.

"No, nothing, if I wasn’t sure he wasn’t I’d think he was near the wolves’ territory.’

"How can you be sure he’s not?" I asked. I hadn’t even thought about that. If the town he came across was La Push, we’d technically broken the treaty, and a war could start, infinitively worse then just some random town.

"I’m positive Sam would have called us." Edward said from where he was sitting on a couch with Bella.

"Well, yea but how are you sure they know he’s there?" Bridget asked. "I mean, Aaron has always been really sneaky." I scrunched up my forehead thinking about what she said, well I did for a little while before Maxi started saying ‘sneaky’ in a really good interpretation of those two unicorns off ‘Charlie the unicorn’, and Maxi and I cracked up.

Maxi stopped when he realized Emmett wasn’t laughing. "Oh wow, you’ve never seen Charlie the Unicorn have you Emmett?"

"No… should I have?"

"I’m so showing it to you later!" Maxi said grinning.

"Oh no your not, the day I let Emmett watch Charlie the Unicorn, is the day the world stops spinning." Not me but Carlisle said.

"You’ve seen it?" I asked him incredulously.

"I made the mistake of giving Alice a computer of course I’ve seen it, but I forbid her from ever showing it to Emmett for a very good reason." I snorted.

"Back to the Point!" Alice said loudly, and then looking at Bridget, "You were saying?"

"Well, I’ll always remember that time when we almost called the cops looking for him remember?" She asked Maxi, who nodded. "We were running from a cop right? And well he decided he was going to turn down a side street."

"Leaving us to deal with the cop," Maxi muttered indignantly.

"Yea well eventually we shook the cop and went looking for him. We couldn’t find him anywhere!! We looked for four days! Finally, we just gave up. Figuring he’d find his way back eventually. I think it was a week before he showed up again. In a bar window of all places, we saw him playing poker." Bridget continued.

"We tapped on the glass, and at first he looked kind of disappointed to see us but then smiled and waved. Picked up his chips, saluted the people he was playing with and came outside with us. Apparently he’d been there the whole time. But what we always thought was weird was we walked by that bar twenty times when we were looking for him, saw people playing poker, but never him." Maxi finished.

"That’s kind of freaky." Emmett said. "Do you think he was just lying?"

"No I think he just didn’t want to be found." I said.

"What should we do then, if he can still do that, and there’s a very good chance, then it’ll be almost impossible to find him." Jasper said.

"But if we let him run loose, he just might hurt someone, and the Volturi could get involved. It has the potential of turning into a very bad situation." I said.

"I think we should go look for him." Bella said softly.

"They will you will not." Edward said from next to her. "Aaron is a newborn vampire and without Maxi around he’s thirsty, I don’t want you near him!"

"That’s unfair, who says I’ll find him when Maxi isn’t there?" she argued, probably hating the fact that she would be left behind.

"I don’t want to take that chance."

"Fine," Bella said recognizing this as a lost battle. "But I don’t want to stay here waiting while you guys could be in trouble." See told you.

"Trust me we won’t be." I said grinning showing my annoyingly sharp teeth, I was trying to reassure her. "Besides, it will only be me Max, Bridge, maybe Alice, Emmett and Edward, no one else really needs to go."

"Why not us?" Jasper asked.

"Maxi, Bridge and I are familiar faces, Alice, and Edward can help us find him, and Emmett can help us restrain him if we need to. I’d have you come too, but I’d rather one of the emotion effectors to stay here and calm him down if he comes back. And you aren’t a familiar face. As for Rose, Carlisle and Esme, they can help calm him down and restrain him if he comes back." I said simply.

"You think he’ll need restraining?" Edward asked.

"Not entirely sure, but I’m worried about it yes."

"People who Kate named go with her, everyone else stay. Edward take Bella home first." Carlisle said. In a second everyone was outside on the porch. In varies crouching positions ready to go in a seconds notice.

"Everyone go in separate directions." I said, "Edward when you come back find Alice, and branch off in a different direction then her. I’ll look by La Push."
