I woke up that morning to the birds chirping and Kara’s face inches from mine. I noticed she was already dressed in a pair of gray skinny jeans and a black Hot Topic T shirt. She had on her black high-tops and she had her hair in a messy ponytail, her side bangs sweeping over her eye.

“Get your lazy ass up! It’s noon!” she yelled at me.

“Sorry, didn’t know I ordered a wake up call.” I muttered. She rolled her eyes. She shoved some clothes at me and ordered me to get in the shower.

I grabbed a random bottle of shower gel on my way to the bathroom. Turns out it was watermelon. Yummy.

I took a quick ten minute shower and got dressed. I grabbed a banana nut muffin out of my junk food horde. Kara was sitting on my bed waiting while I put my old green Chucks on. I had on a pair of light blue skinny jeans and a white T shirt with a sketch of a beach on. My hair was down, my bangs in my face. I went downstairs behind Kara and saw my mom sitting at the table with Alice and Emmet.

“Look who’s finally up.” Mom commented. I glared at her. I was still mad she forgave that loser.

“Bella, love-” Edward started, but stopped when he saw me there.

“What’s the matter? Scared of a little girl?” I taunted him.

“Olivia.” Mom’s warning voice came.

“Yes?” I asked, innocently. I knew she couldn’t resist the puppy dog eyes. It was my classic move. Widen the eyes; pout the lips, and she turns into putty in my freckled hand.

Bella Swan

After Kara and Ruby went outside I turned to Edward.

“Did you two talk before I woke up?” I asked, suspicious.

“We had a small confrontation last night.” He murmured, setting me on his lap.

“How small?” I demanded.

“Well, she came in to check on you. I hadn’t fallen asleep yet.” He winked at me.

“What did you say?” I questioned.

“I asked her if she had a problem with me after she claimed I was most likely an ax murderer.” He laughed.

“Why, Roo, why?” I muttered.

“She’s just worried about you.” he sighed.

“You should be worried about her.” Jasper’s voice came from behind.

“Why?” I asked. I was worried now. Jasper usually ignored the emotions.

“She’s confused. And angry. And she’s even a little scared. Of what, I don’t know.” he shrugged.

“Jasper,” I sighed. “Those are normal teenage emotions.”

“Maybe. But these are multiplied by about a hundred. And her moods keep changing, is she bipolar?” he asked.

“No.” I said, confused.

“Maybe I’m wrong, but something’s bothering her. And it’s pretty big, for her to be this hyped up.” He informed me.

“Well thanks for telling me.” I told him.

“If you ask me, we should tell her about, ya know, us. If you two are living here, she has a right to know.” Jasper suggested.

“I guess you’re right.”

Ruby Oliver

Kara and I had spent most of the day exploring the forest. It was pretty big and there were lots of trees. Kara and I used to climb them in elementary school.

I was lying on my bed, watching George Lopez, when a knock came at the door.

“Roo?” my mom’s voice said.

“What?” I called.

“We have to talk to you,” she said, looking around. “Where’s Kara?”

“Right here!” Kara popped out of the closet.

“Come on you two.” Mom chuckled, pulling us behind her.

She took us to the living room, where all the Cullen’s were seated. I tried turning around, once I saw Edward, but mom kept a hold on my shoulder.

“We have something to tell you.” mom announced.

I went over and sat next to Emmett on the couch. Kara sat in between Alice and Jasper, while mom went and sat on Edward’s lap. Ew, he’s like, what, seventeen?

“Alright,” Carlisle sighed. “Here goes nothing…”

“What’s eatin ya, doc?” I asked. He smiled up at me and motioned me over to him. I sat next to him and he wrapped an arm around my shoulder. He’s the only one that took kindly to me right from the start. I think he actually understands me.

“Ruby, sweetheart…this is big. You’re going to have to keep an open mind.” He warned me.

“Wide open, doc.” I agreed.

“Alright, well then, Ruby sweetie, we have a secret. Can you keep a secret?” he asked.

“Yup.” I answered, popping the ‘p’.

“Kara?” he asked. She nodded and gave him thumbs up.

“Ruby, Kara, you may think I’m crazy when I saw this, but…were vampires.” He stuttered.
