Rating 5/5 Word Count 868 Review this Chapter
I had lived in the Cullen’s house for a month. Rosalie still hated me. Bella was nice to me, even though I had killed her father, like the sister I never had. Esme was wonderful. Carlisle kept me posted on every new discovery he found about me. Emmett and I had fun. Alice didn’t really act like a mum, but I loved her dearly. Edward had accepted me, knowing what I had done for his family, and hadn’t told anyone about it. Jasper was the problem. He had gone from looking after me (when I had first arrived) to staying away from me. I asked Edward about it when everyone else had gone out hunting.
“Edward?” I said.
“What is it?”
“Can’t you guess?” I enjoyed teasing him about the fact that I could block him.
“No. because you are using Bella’s gift again. You know I hate it. What if she gets into trouble?” he said sourly.
“You like it when she shows you what she’s thinking. She’s not the only one with a gift”
“Fine! I enjoy it when she shows me her thoughts, but she’s nowhere near me right now is she?”
“So, if you were nearby, you’d be happy?”
“Yes” he admitted “but for now, I want you to give it back”
“What did you want to ask anyway?”
“What’s wrong with him? He was fine before”
“It’s related to Alice. He’s always taken it for granted that he is and always has been, the only one for her. Then he finds out that she had someone that she loved enough to kill herself for. And she has a daughter”
“I like to think of myself as more of a friend”
“Well, like it or not, you’re technically part of this family. Which means you have a right to stay. For eternity” he groaned theatrically.
“Do I annoy you?” I said playfully. He read my thoughts and rolled his eyes. He gestured at me. I crouched and growled. Then he growled when he realized I had removed his gift. I leapt at him, quickly. He was on the floor in seconds.
“Surrender?” I asked.
“No” he snarled. He tried to fight back but I tightened my grip and he gave up.
“You win today” I heard the others coming and leapt onto the sofa. Esme and Alice didn’t approve of me beating Edward up. Emmett and Jasper thought it was hilarious. Well, Jasper would, if it didn’t involve me. They all came in.
“Have you told her?” Carlisle asked.
“He’s told me a lot of things. He told me that it winds him up when I borrow Bella’s gift, unless he’s close enough to hear her thoughts. He told me his favorite type of music. Etc”
“We’re moving” clarified Edward
“When you say we, you mean you lot. Vampires together” I got up. I knew it was only a matter of time before they threw me out and I had to go to the Volturi. Alice danced over to me and hugged me.
“We mean our family”
“Fine. I know my place. I’m off”
“You are my family!” she laughed. I saw Jasper wince and sent a thought to Edward.
Do you mind? He realized what I meant and he shook his head slightly. I seized it.
Sigh. I know she’s Alice’s daughter and all, but we were fine before she arrived. I just wish…
“Yes, but some people don’t want me around” I said, glancing at Jasper. They didn’t realize whom I meant.
“Rosalie will just have to get over it,” said Carlisle.
You borrowed Edward’s gift again? Jasper had noticed.
I’m sorry. I just wish…
“Do you mind if I have a word with Jasper in private?” I asked.
“No” I walked out of the room, gesturing for him to follow. I gave Edward his gift back; it would be good for him to know if I was coming or not.
“Ok, what do you wish?”
“I’m sorry Cadyna, I’ve been very rude. It’s just…”
“I know. You were happier before I appeared, and you’ve always taken it for granted that Alice never loved anyone else, right? You don’t have to worry. You’re her soul mate. The thing with my dad was when she was human and was different. I was an accident”
“You’ve been talking to Edward” his eyes narrowed.
“Well, if you really want me gone, say the word and I disappear. You can say that I fell in a river”
“You’re a strong swimmer”
“Okay, I got killed by a bear”
“You’re stronger then a bear” he pointed out.
“Fine, Mr. picky! Let’s say that I got abducted by little green men from mars!” I exclaimed. He didn’t smile, just stood still.
“Seriously, if you want me gone, I disappear” I said. He considered it.
“Alice would never forgive me”
“She wouldn’t have to know. I don’t belong here. I accept that”
“It’s not fair on you”
“No. you stay” he stalked off.
“Okay” I paused “dad” I whispered the last part but he heard it and turned slightly. I smiled and ran back to the house. He chased after me.
“So, where are we moving to?”
“England. It’s the cloudiest place we can think of. Nessie and Jacob are going to live here. We have a nice house out there. Esme built it when we went there last time”
“It’s in a little town called Basingstoke,” added Alice.
“Great. Lock your doors England, the Cullen’s are coming”
