By twelve o clock the next day Scott had got us all entered into the talent show, even himself, which I was quite surprised at. We were all going to perform separately and we were all going to sing. As soon as Scott told us that we were able to enter Logan ran off yelling something about having a perfect song he wrote a few months ago and that he was going to sort out his backing track. I know what song he is going to sing, he sang it to me when he first wrote it, it’s going to really piss Scott of but to be honest it’s a catchy song. I’m not sure what Scott is singing, most likely, again, something he wrote himself. Myself? I’m going to sing a personal favourite of mine. I wrote it just after … he … left. It’s painful to sing sometimes, but its reminds me that if you give your heart to someone, you are only leaving yourself vulnerable.

Venom leaked from my eyes. I once met a vampire that could cry venom, which I then absorbed making it my power as well. That’s my other gift. I’m like a sponge; if I meet another vampire with a gift I’m able to absorb it. I wish I had never met her, when I first joined the Howe coven I used to cry whenever I saw something that reminded me of … him …no I must learn to say his name …Edward… a fresh wave of tears leaked from my eyes, yeah it may be 70 years but it still hurts. Lots. Anyway the whole family used to have to hold me till I calmed down, I’m not so bad now I hardly ever cry but being back in Forks bought back a fresh tidal wave of memories. So yeah, she must have cried a hell of a lot when she was human to be able to carry that trait over to her vampish state.

I went over to my wardrobe to pick out an outfit for my performance. I didn’t want anything too flashy, cause its not that type of song. I finally picked out a vintage, sleeveless black Nadine dress. It had a rouched, layered design and elasticated waistband and was very short. For my shoes I picked at a pair of black duchess back bow sandal high heels. Satisfied with my choice I went downstairs to see what everyone else was doing.

“Bella” Nick nodded his head in greeting. “I heard you are going to be in a talent show tonight. May myself and Eva come watch?” Nick is the leader of our coven and Eva’s mate. At first impressions he has a very stony, rough personality. He is one of those people that doesn’t like to let his feelings show so comes across as uncaring, however under the stony exterior he is a protective, caring and loyal man.

“Only if you want to, it probably won’t be very good it’s only and amateur one.” I replied. It isn’t that I don’t want Nick and Eva there, but I’m scared he wouldn’t like my performance, which is silly I know but I can’t help but want to please him. He is like my father after Charlie.

“Don’t be ridiculous, I have heard you sing. Your voice is stunning.” He smiled and kissed the top of my head. “Don’t fret so much, it’s not healthy.” He turned and walked outside. Looking out the window I saw him bend down to passionately kiss Eva on the lips and start talking to her as she worked on the garden. I sighed, that’s the kind of love I want but it’s not going to happen, as the only man I love doesn’t love me back. Sometimes I wish the Howe’s never found me.

The talent show was about to start, we were myself, Logan and Scott stood outside the gym where the show was taking place.

“You ready for this babe?” Scott asked slinging his arm around my shoulders.

“As ready as I’m ever going to be.” I grimaced. This is the bit I hate, the minute we walk through them doors all eyes will be on us. Logan stood the other side of me, I felt guarded and safe between them.

“Here goes nothing.” I whispered as the doors opened and all eyes swivelled to the new arrivals. We confidently strode through the hall, ignoring all the whispers, and the heated stares and made our way over to Eva and Nick who had arrived early to get us a table. It was situated in the back corner in the shadows; this is where Nick prefers us to be, out of the spotlight.

We blocked everything out; I ignored all the longing looks in the boy’s eyes and all the evil stares I was getting from jealous girls. We concentrated on the acts; they weren’t that good, average singing, poor acting and terrible comedy acts.

Before we knew it, it was Scott’s turn. The announcer briefly introduced him.

“And next act up tonight is a new student, part of a family that just transferred here. Give it up for Scott Howe!” Everybody politely clapped and turned around to watch him make his way up to the stage. Before he left however he turned to me and grabbed my face roughly and enthusiastically kissed me. This was no doubt, a show for everyone, a warning that I was off limits. Scott smirked and gave his backing track to the sound guy and walked up to the mic.

“Alright everyone? Well tonight I’m going to be singing a song that I wrote and composed, the song is dedicated to my gorgeous girlfriend. This song was written actually before we got together and I wanted to show her how I felt.” There where a few “aww’s” and Scott winked at me before he started singing.

Standing on the edge of morning
scent of sex and new found glory
playing as she's pulling back her hair
she drives away
she's feeling worthless
used again but nothing's different
she'd stay the night
but knows he doesn't care

home by three
deafening quiet
the porch light's off
yes they forgot it
she'd cry herself to sleep
but she don't dare
and she wants to be a model
she wants to hear she's beautiful
she's beautiful

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
save me too
I want to save you

dressed by dawn and out the door
no light
she memorized the floor
so she could leave without being detected
she works till three
it's uniform
she dreams that he'll come by the store
she prays for days
when boys mean she's protected
and she wants someone to see her
she needs to hear she's beautiful
she's beautiful

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
save me too
I want to save you

and she won't sleep
she won't sleep
and she won't sleep
at all

I want to save you
I want to save you
I need you
save me too
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save you
(let me save you)
I want to save you

I smiled as I recalled a night a few weeks after meeting Scott he held me as I cried as whispered, “I want to save you.” He hates seeing me in pain I think this was his way of telling me that he doesn’t believe the façade I put on. He knows it still hurts.

Everyone cheered and clapped, they were going wild. I don’t blame them, being a vampire Scott’s voice was beautiful and perfect. I stood up as he approached me. He grabbed me into a hug and pecked me on the lips.

“Did you like it?” he whispered.

“Of course but you don’t need to save me Scott, I will deal with my issue’s. That is why they are called `my issue’s’.” I smiled letting him know I wasn’t angry.

We sat back down again and watched a couple more acts until it was Logan’s turn to go up.
