Dear Edward, I can't help but wish that you will miss me now that I am gone. After all, we had a lot of great times together. Though I hope you won't feel guilty and go and try to kill yourself, as I know you will try. It's not your fault that I am dead. It's mine. I didn't even attempt to move out of the way when the car came. Okay? But I do hope you let everyone know that I will miss them. Even if they hate me as much as you do, just let them know that. I hope you lead a normal life now, one with a normal vampire girlfriend, one where you are happy. Forever yours, Isabella Marie Swan

3. I have a little chat with God
Rating 3.8/5 Word Count 1313 Review this Chapter
One of the things about the cruise, was you get to meet many interesting people. There were only 4 people my age or younger on the cruise.
First, there was Bailey. I've told you a lot about her, but not how she died. She was very sad about it, too, so it took awhile for her to tell me. When she was 12 years old, she was killed in school. You know, one of those shootings where a suicidal kid brings a gun to school? That's how she died. But that's not all. She and a friend, Alexandra, were hiding in the library. They had heard the shots and ran there to hid behind the bookshelves. Well, basically, Bailey took a bullet for Alexandra. She didn't like to talk about it.
Next, there was Elizabeth. She was 14 and died in a car crash with her parents. She had long, red hair that reminded me of Victoria's. Shiver. She also had startling green eyes that forced me to remember that he had green eyes when he was alive. She was tall for her age, about Jacob's size.
Thirdly, there was Zach. He was 6 years old and died when a soccer goal fell on top of him. He was Asian, and about 4 feet tall.
After Zach was Elena; (E-lane-a). She had orange-ish blond-ish hair and brown eyes. She was also 14, and had died from some kind of cancer, and was a very shy person. But she and Elizabeth apparently knew each other from the hospital and from school, and quickly became best friends.
All us kids stuck together and formed a sort of clique. Everyone else was either really old or middle aged.
One of the things Bailey said was that we had to move on with our lives. Once she said, "There will be other lives for everything you wanted to do." I thought about that often. It helped me. Soon, I accepted dying. I knew that I would probably see Edward again, in another life.
There will be other lives for Edward. There will be other lives for vampires and werewolves and mythical creatures. There will be other lives for Victoria to gain revenge on, and for Laurent to attempt to kill. There will be other lives for clumsiness and for blushing. There will be other lives for Phoenix and for Forks. There will be other lives for Alice to play dress up on, and for Rosalie to hate. There will be other lives for Carlisle to fix, and for Esme to mother. There will be other lives for Emmett to arm-wrestle with. There will be other lives for living.
There will be other lives for S.A.T's and for graduating. For getting roommates and for classes. There will be other lives for curfews and teachers. For lectures and finals. For graduating to the world. There will be other lives for college.
There will be other lives for another special someone to walk down the isle to. There will be lives for a first home, and for growing old together. There will be other lives.
There will be other lives.
The next morning when I woke up, something weird happened. I felt like the whole world (er, elsewhere?) was melting away. In its place was my (our) meadow. Bailey was there, too. I don't know what she saw, but she sat down in mid-air and floated there, as if she was sitting on her bed or on a chair. The meadow was empty though. Of course, Bailey was there. But I didn't know her. I don't even think I know myself. And to top it all off, I was dead.
"This wasn't in the book..." Bailey murmured. "Either of them."
"I know, and we need to get it back on track." Said a booming voice. It was loud, and it reminded me of Emmett. "I don't offer this to everyone... But I think its necessary. Would you guys like to be reborn...as vampires?"
"Is that you, lord?" Bailey asked. I recognized it as a blonde joke.
"No. It's the manager of the ice rink." I said sarcastically.
"You really mean that?" I said turning back to the voice, as I noticed that the booming voice was God.
"Of course." He said.
"Does the offer stand for me, too?" Bailey said eagerly.
"Yes, for the both of you."
"Awesome! What powers do we have?" Bailey was officially overexcited.
"I don't know. How about you choose?" He said.
"Sweet! I want to have the ability to control the elements. Like fire, earth, air, and water. Is that okay?" God smiled, he put his hand on her forehead and she turned into a vampire. Without the pain.
"You seriously don't know how lucky we are to not have to suffer the fire of transformation." I told her.
"Yes I do, I know everything you know, remember?" She said. Oh. I forgot.
"Can I have the power to shape-shift? Like if I wanted to look like Alice, I could just picture Alice and I would look exactly like her. Or if I wanted to look like animals, it would work the same way. Can you do that?" I figured it would be useful, if I ever ran into Edward again.
"Sure." And he did the same thing again. Then He turned so that He could see the both of us.
"Now about your eating habits. I really don't want to send two vampires out into the world who are going to drink human blood. If you could drink animal blood, that would work. Or if you don't want the temptation, I can make it so you can live off of people food. If you choose the latter, I will let you choose an eye color." He said to us. I looked over at Bailey.
"Its you're decision. I can go either way." I told her. She looked thoughtful. I wished for a moment that I could read what was going through her mind.
"I think it would be better without the temptation. I mean to say that it would help us keep up a human appearance. But I would like golden eyes." She said quickly. Her eyes turned golden. Hmm...I wonder what color I wanted. I changed mine golden, too. Then I thought for a second, and made them green.
"That is so cool!" Bailey said. "I want to try something, too." She stared at the sky and all a sudden it started to rain. We, as in God and I, gave a confused glace to Bailey. "What, if I can control the elements, I can control weather, too. It just takes a bit of concentration."
I wanted to try something. I focused on Bailey, but imagined her with bright green hair. Her hair turned green. I burst out laughing. I also imagined her with red eyes.
"What?" she asked, oblivious to what was going on.
"Your...hair...clashes...with...your...eyes!" I said between laughs. Then she looked like she would have a fit. Which she did.
"CHANGE IT BACK, CHANGE IT BACK!" She screeched at me. I ignored her.
"Can we still turn other people into vampires? I mean, if someone is in danger..." I trailed off.
"Yes, you can, just don't go around making vampires willy-nilly. Besides, blood will smell and taste the same way as it did for you in your human life."
"OH PLEASE, CHANGE IT BACK!" Bailey begged. I changed it back. She shut up.
"How are we going back to Earth?" I asked God.
"Just close your eyes and lay down." He said slowly.
Bailey laid down in the soft grass. All a sudden, I felt really sleepy. I followed Bailey and laid down next to her. I turned her hair purple before closing my eyes. I felt myself drift off to sleep. I awoke to Bailey screaming.
