I thought I had better squeeze this is somewhere, just as a sort of FAQ. Twilight and its characters and events are not owned by me. They have been created by Stephenie Meyer. THIS IS NOT TWILIGHT. For the sake of the flow of my story, I have change bits around to make it fit. That means that something that occurred in a couple of hours may be stretched out to a couple of days. That's what fanfiction is about - if you don't like it, don't read it.Also too, if you don't understand it now, you will do soon. I promise.
Also, the ideas in this story are mine. If you don't understand what I am talking about, you will do soon, if you keep reading. This was a dream of mine a couple of months back, and I've always planned to turn it into a story. So imagine that there's a little round C covering the story - it's copyrighted 2008. Please, if you read and you like, or even if you read and you don't like, review. It's what keeps me alive. It's what'll keep this story alive. I cannot be the writer I want to be without your feedback. If you don't review, then I'll just write the story for my own personal satisfaction.

A shiver ran up my spine as I traced the air in front of me, my right hand mimicking the shape of a rainbow. The air around me was cold, but I didn’t mind. The coldness I was used to.
I sighed. “It’s not fair,” I said aloud, letting my hand fall back into my lap. The still air shuddered in reply.
I stared at my bookshelf for a few minutes, listening to the silence of the house. Charlie, my new foster father, had gone to pick his daughter up from Port Angeles earlier this morning, so I had the small house to myself.
It was something I always anxiously waited for, to be alone in Charlie’s house. It was something I always dreaded as well – a moment never lasts a lifetime.
And now, Chief Swan’s daughter, Bella, was coming to stay – whether indefinitely I did not know, but I would no longer be alone in the house.
I laughed dryly as I stared at the black spine of Eliot’s Daniel Deronda¸ another shiver running up my spine. I wrapped my arms around myself, tilting my head to one side so that my body was on an angle. If anyone had of walked in at that moment, it would look not only odd, but uncomfortable. As odd as it may be, it was not, nor would ever be, uncomfortable.
I can’t remember how long I stayed like that for – minutes, maybe hours. A car door slamming brought me out of my reverie.
I quickly hopped off the bed, peering out of the window as another door slammed. Charlie was pulling a suitcase out of the back of the police car, and a head with long brown hair was making its way to the door – Bella.
I could hear the murmurs of their chatter through the window, and I moved away, heading for the door. I placed a finger to my lips, using my other hand to push the air behind me before shutting the door behind me – a fruitless attempt, but it had to be done anyhow.
I met Charlie and Bella on at the edge of the stairs. I hovered on the bottom step, not quite sure what to say or do, nervously biting my lip. I felt like an intruder.
“Ally - there you are. This is my daughter Bella. Bella, this is Ally.” I smiled at how uncomfortable Charlie was at this introduction.
It was just like him. “Ally’s staying with us for a while, just until the agency in Seattle can find a new foster home for her.” My stomach curled, and I felt my face darken at the thought of another new home.
I closed my eyes for less than a second, recomposing myself.
I stuck out my hand.
“Hi Bella, it’s so nice to finally meet you. You should hear Charlie rabbit on about you. Never stops.” I grinned, Bella laughed nervously and Charlie went red in the face.
The ice was broken.
Literally, I thought, as something cold ran across my back.
“Why don’t you show Bella to her room Ally? There’s a game on and I…”
I smiled. “No problem Charlie.”
Turning, I pushed through the stairs until I was standing in the doorway of Bella’s bedroom.
“This is your room – but of course you know that,” I joked, opening the door for Bella. She smiled shyly, moving into her old room.
I stepped into the doorway behind her as she stood in the middle of the room, fingering the blanket that lay on the bed.
“I’m just going to go – I’ll be over there if you need anything,” I pointed to the room across the hall. Like Charlie, I my needs lay elsewhere. And I didn’t want to make anything any more awkward than it already was.
Bella smiled again. “Thanks.”
I nodded, heading back to my room across the hall.
Lying down on my bed, I turned my head to the side. You could feel the icy coldness of the air next to me in contrast to the warmth of the bed.
I sighed out loud.
“I hate secrets,” I murmured.
