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.

The fight was over I stood up wobbling slightly feeling the pain of burns across my legs and shoulder where Aaron had touched me. I popped my shoulder trying to get rid of some of the pain there, and got to work ripping the rest of his body apart.

I handed a couple of pieces to each of us in the clearing. "Take these and burry them away from each other at least six or seven miles apart. We can‘t burn him, who knows what might happen because of his whole power thing." I told them then ran off with my own little pile. Escaping while I was at it.

They weren’t talking or doing anything really. Probably still shocked at how heartless I can be. Killing your own friend, how evil can you be? I asked my self as I buried a piece of Aaron’s torso. "This is all my fault." I muttered as the unfamiliar prickling in my eye that meant I wanted to cry started. But the tears would never come, and I moved on going to bury the next body part.

As I ran little twigs and branches hit me a scratched my skin. A few scraped across my burns and stung. Enough that I had to stop and walk so not as many twigs would get me. I still couldn’t believe Aaron’s power the fire in his hands that burnt everything they touched. There were singed parts from where he’d touched the ground back in the clearing.

He’d never even told us he could do that. I guess he’d been planning to leave for a long time, and had decided it was best not to tell us just in case. It’s what I would’ve done in his shoes, I’ll admit it.

"You should probably go and see Carlisle." Edward’s voice said from behind me. "Let me take those," he continued gesturing to the pile of body parts in my arms.

"Thanks." I muttered rubbing the burn on my neck and making sure all of my thoughts were closed off from him. "I should probably start heading back anyway, it’ll take forever to get back walking."

"No need, Alice already went back to get you a shirt with long sleeves and a collar so you can run back." He said grabbing what was in my hands and saying, "Just wait here." Before running off to bury everything.

"There’s something weird about this I swear there is I just can’t figure it out." I told Alice as she came and handed me a dark green turtle neck, that was obviously designer label what else could you expect from Alice?

"The whole thing in general or me getting you the shirt?" She asked as she helped me get it over my head.

"The whole thing is weird but I was talking about the shirt." I said.

"Maybe because its such a normal thing compared to what we’re usually doing." She said, then ran back with me to the house.

It was a week or two before most everything went back to normal. I’d even say it got a little better. My burns had scared over and no longer cause me trouble, Emmett quit the pranks, and most of the yelling and fighting went away, as it was Aaron who always started it. The only ones really still effected were Maxi, Bridge, and I. Everyone but us had someone to turn to for the comfort and love that was needed to go through a loss. But even after the second week Bridge and Maxi with difficulty started to accept that in a way it was what he had wanted.

Rather dead then a vampire. I could relate. But I have yet to stop feeling guilty. I gave the go to change them. I was the one to cause him all of the misery that he’d taken out on us. I was the one who killed him. It was all my fault.

But it was something I had to live with. You can’t change the past no matter how much you try.

EPOV

You could tell even weeks after what happened it still effected the new part of our family. Kate especially. She blamed herself that much was obvious. It had to be something that ran in our family, as Bella told me I did it all the time.

About two and a half weeks after everything had happened I was out looking for her after she didn’t pick up her phone. Alice was worried and she wouldn’t tell me why and I figured she should probably come back so the whole family was together if something happened. I walked slowly through the woods in no real rush, humming the Afterlife song that Kate liked so much. Trying in vain to dodge the rain drops that were as usual coming down on the town of Forks.

I wandered through the woods, coming up to an old abandoned shack. Kate was sitting on top of the roof singing softly. She heard me approach, and looked over from where she was sitting against the chimney of the old decrepit building, and smiled.

And as she smiled, sang, and sat on that roof top, her body shimmered going in and out of existence and then completely disappeared.

Escape from this Afterlife

Cause this time I’m right

To move on and on far away from here

Got nothing against you and surly I’ll miss you

This place full of peace and light

And I’d hoped you might take me back inside

When the time is right
