Whatever Happened To Myths AREN'T Real?
I sat at the side of the road, my head in my blue tinged hands.I really should have eaten more of those tea leaves, any human could see that I was not one of them. I shook my head. Now was not the time to worry about humans. In a household where already two myths are real, can the Cullen family handle another? A strange girl appears on their doorstep looking for Carisle. And then comes the future that even Alice could never imagine. "I can only change one part of the Universe and that part is me" ~ Anonymous
I came up with this one day and it has been stuck in my head ever since. My first fanfic. I hope you like it. It's gonna be a long story! Set about 5 years after Breaking Dawn, *SPOILERS FOR BREAKING DAWN* and changes point of view throughout story. Disclaimer- I own nothing (except Incendia and the pixie plot) the rest is all thanks to Stephenie Meyer. I love her work, and without it this fanfic would never be written!

Indy's Point of View
The rush of the wind lifted me up and I landed effortlessly on the ground.
Jacob glared at me,
"If Nessie does that again, Indy, I swear, you're dead," he told me angrily.
"Oh don't be such a worrywart Jacob," Nessie said, grinning at me, "that was fun, and safe."
Jacob just mumbled under his breath.
I felt eyes on me and I looked up looking directly into a brown pair that made my body tingle. There was silence all around until I walked slowly over and pulled his phone out of his pocket.
"You really should keep this charged," I said, a slight smile threatening to cross my features.
"I really should," Seth agreed, a smile that made my heart fill appeared.
We were fairly close together now.
And then from the background Embry said, "Kiss, Kiss, Kiss!" only to be slapped by Nessie. I drew in a breath and took a step back.
"So, uh, you going to the party at Quil's place yes?" I asked.
"Yes," Seth said.
"I was wondering," I began.
"Yes," Seth urged.
"if you'd come by to talk after the party because," I continued.
"Because," Seth said.
"I'd like to talk to you," I finally finished.
Seth's eyes lit up, "I'll come now," he grinned.
"At least go to the party for a little while," I told him.
"Do I have to?"
"Yes," I scolded.
"Okay," but his grin remained.
"C'mon Romeo, or we'll be late," Jacob said, giving Nessie a tight hug. I heard him whisper in her ear, "I'll be by later."
And then they left, Seth giving me a long, deep look over his shoulder before running after the rest of them to catch up.
Afterwards I ran home, and climbed up the tree outside my room... and waited.
Every minute, no, every second of this party seems to pass slowly. Far too slowly for me. So after all the food was eaten I said goodbye to Billy Black, Jacob's father and ran into a patch of forest. I became my wolf self and ran at top speed all the way to the Cullens.
I could smell her scent as I rounded the corner and spotted her up in a tree outside the house. I changed back to normal in the forest a couple of metres away, and took the pants that were tied around my neck and put them on.
Carefully and rather stealthily, or so I thought, I climbed the tree without problem or hesitation. She was sitting there, perfectly still, on the top branch. She looked like any human being, except for the dim glow of a sparkling green skin. It didn't revolt me, to me it made her seem prettier. Her dress was deep silk blue that was a little tattered and broken at the ends.
Indy was staring at the night sky, like it held answers to unasked questions.
"Hi," she said, not looking at me yet.
"How'd you kno-"
"I just do," Indy replied, turning towards me with a smile.
I couldn't help but smile back.
"So," I continued, "What do you want to talk about?"
"Oh, that," She took one more glanve at the moon and turned her entire body towards me, "Jake told me that you had...imprinted on me."
I bit my lip, "It's true."
"And I... I need to tell you something," she continued. It seemed kind of hard for her. "I'm a pixie and you're a shape shifter. I'm not normal, I'm not even PIXIE standard normal. But, you see..."
I cut across her, "Listen, I understand if you don't exactly feel the same way about me, I mean I imprinted and obviously you know what that means now, but I can be whatever you need me to be. Imprinting is like that, we don't have to have a relationship. You don't have to love me-"
She put a finger on my lips, a genuine smile on her face.
"Let me finish," she took her finger away and looked down messing around with her hands. She sighed and looked up at me. She was a little bit smaller, more petite than I. And right now she looked a little fragile.
"Pixies don't imprint. We tie. Tying..." her eyes looked slightly scared. She then took a deep breath and continued, "tying is where one being makes a special bond with another. My soul has connected to yours. And even though you're not even of the same" she stopped.
"Species?" I suggested.
"That's one word for it I guess. Even though we're not the same I tied to you. I don't know what that means, I didn't even know it was possible. Pixies can tie to faries, and humans, even elves, but I didn't know we could tie to shapeshifters. Maybe it's because of my utter strangeness. Tying is similar to imprinting but sometimes pixies can resist it, fight it. Not often. And there's different kind of tying. Some can broken. Some are for different reasons, like a sisterhood or friendship, or..." she trailed off.
"Love?" I asked.
"Because you imprinted Seth, on me, that makes it a double tie. I am bound to you. I-" she shook her head, "My soul is connected to yours now. I tried to fight it. I couldn't, it was breaking me. This is a strong one, bigger than me, my magic. Earthly thoughts."
"If you...tied? If you tied with me, then how come you tried to fight it? Why? Didn't you want to tie with me? Is there someone else?" I asked. Something didn't add up.
Her seemingly depthless eyes stared back at me, they had changed slightly. Become more glittery, and somewhat darker in places and lighter in others.
"It's not you Seth. I must admit that tying with a shapeshifter is odd, extremely, and I never expected it. Not exactly what I dreamed of either. But there is no one else, I haven't been to my homeland since I was five pixie years old. Hardly hot passion with anyone. And I can't imagine a more wonderful soulful person that I could be with. It's just," she leant back, and then forward covering her face in her hands.
"I didn't want to tie because there is something that I must do. I didn't want to become attached to anyone, any people. Then I was captured, and lost my memory and escaped. I didn't remember that I couldn't become attached, I didn't remember the reason I was being hurt. And the Cullens came into it. By the time I did, it was too late. They were like family. When I was first around you, I didn't have my entire soul. My captor stole most of it and just left pieces. But I still felt a twinge of something.-"
"So did I," I said aloud, remembering.
"You can't tie without a full soul. I guess that should have hinted how strong this was going to be. When I did return with all of me intact, I had no choice. The minute you and I met gazes I was tied to you," she said.
"But what's so wrong with tying? What must you do? I will help you. I'll always be there for you," I told her, gently putting my hand on her shoulder. She jumped away at the contact and then stood up.
"You don't understand!" she yelled at me.
"What don't I understand?" I yelled back, also standing.
She jumped down from the 6 foot high tree and began running.
I jumped down also and followed her. Once I caught her I made her turn around to face me.
"Tell me what I don't understand," I begged her.
She looked down.
"Tell me," more urgently I asked her.
"It's complicated. My life has always revolved around it. One of the reasons I could defeat Malefa, the pixie that tortured me? A pixie girl of my age shouldn't be able to, we shouldn't have enough strength and power... I was chosen to be different, to be more powerful. I was chosen for it before I was even born Seth. That's the reason I was captured in the first place, the reason they killed my mother who was protecting me. The reason my father was on the run since I was four years old. The reason he was tracked down and killed. And the reason I will have to leave you. I only have a few more human months left here Seth. I have to be me, the strange pixie girl," she told me.
"But I love the strange pixie girl," I said.
"How could you ever love this?" and before my very eyes she changed, wings sprouted from behind her back, her colour grew stronger and brighter, the marking on her hand glowed and changed colours much more constantly, her eyes changed shape slightly. Her ears grew a little more pointed at the tips, but not as much as I'd read about. The change stunned me. Although, to me she looked even prettier. She could entrance any boy I knew.
"You look beautiful," I told her.
"You have to be kidding," she moved away, "I sprout wings out of my back. I glow like a nighlight. My ears are a weird shape. My hand has a glowing, pulsing symbol as part of my skin running up my arm. It's not normal for human girls."
"But you're not human, " I ran forward and grabbed her hands, "and I'm not human either. I'm not going to change into a wolf in front of you, because then when I change back I'd have to go into the woods and it takes far too much time," she giggled and then regained her composure, "and I don't want a human girl. We're both strange, mythical, unimaginable creatures. And I imprinted on you. That must have been for a reason. I find you highly stunningly beautiful, and I'd love to get to know you better."
"But what about me having to leave?" She asked.
I drew her nearer, she protested a little.
"We'll cross that bridge when we come to it," he said.
"I don't want to get close to you and have to leave, I'll be breaking my own heart...and yours," she said.
"It'd break anyway being away from you," I murmured, our entire bodies touching.
With that my head reached down to hers and kissed her.
When I resurfaced from the most amazing kiss I'd ever had in my life I heard cheering from the house.
I decided to give them an encore.
