He was clearly a vampire. His pale, perfect face was evidence of that. But his eyes were light brown.

“Nice contacts” I said.

“What? This is my natural eye color,” he said with mock confusion. I raised an eyebrow at him.

“Who are you, anyway?”

“Cadyna Cullen. Nice to meet you”

“Ah, the new year nine?”

“Yes. Now can you please give up the pretence?”

“I have no idea what you are talking about” he said innocently. Too innocently. I sighed. The door opened and Alice and Bella came in. they came over to me.

“Alice, Bella” I acknowledged. John looked at them and rolled his eyes.

“Three gorgeous girls, and let me guess, they’re all taken” he said.

“We are. And we need to have a discussion” said Alice. He looked at them with speculation, and then nodded.

“I’m sorry. I didn’t realize she was your sister, otherwise I wouldn’t have pretended in the first place”

“She not my sister” said Alice. He looked worried, like he’d revealed too much.

“She’s my mum,” I said. He looked ever so slightly stunned. I smiled.

“We’ll come over to your house tonight? At seven?” he said. Bella nodded. He smiled at us and left. Alice put her arm around me but I pushed it off.

“I don’t want to hear it”

“He…”

“Don’t say he didn’t mean it, he did. I’m not going to forgive him. I’ll come home, but I’m not going to talk to him. In fact, I can’t be bothered with the rest of the day” I snuck out of school, shifted and ran home. Carlisle was at his new hospital. Esme was out. I phased before I ran up to my bedroom and screamed into my pillow. I had tried everything to get Jasper to like me. Now I didn’t care. When I stopped yelling I lay still, tears in my eyes. After an hour or two, the others came home.

“Cadyna?” said Bella from downstairs. I got up and turned some loud music on as way of a response. I heard Jasper moan downstairs, as if he was in pain. If I was causing Jasper pain with my emotions, good! I felt imprisoned, more then I had in Italy, when I had been forced to…NO! I was never going back there. I stayed in my room for ages. Alice came up.

“Cady? Jasper’s sorry”

“No he’s not. He meant it and you know it. And he’s definitely not sorry” I said. Alice sighed.

“Will you come down to meet the other coven?”

“No point. I’m not staying”

“Cadyna”

“What?”

“Please stay?” I didn’t reply so she left. I thought about it. It would annoy Jasper more if I stayed, and right now that seemed perfect. I heard the doorbell. The Cope’s. I headed dutifully downstairs. Everyone was in the living room so I went and joined them, ignoring the curious looks I received from the Cope’s, the questioning looks from Esme and Carlisle, the concerned looks from Alice and Bella and the glare Jasper and Rosalie gave me. You could have cut the tension with a knife. Carlisle broke the tension.

“Hello, I am Carlisle. This is my wife Esme and our adopted children. Edward and Bella, Alice and Jasper and Rosalie and Emmett. We survive on animal blood and some of us have special gifts”

“I am John; this is my brother Michael and his wife Honey, her sister Clarian and my other brother Bailey. We also survive on animal blood and some of us have gifts as well”

“Well then, let’s show our skills” Emmett challenged “I am exceptionally strong”

“I can resist blood completely,” said Carlisle.

“I can control the emotions of people around me and sense them”

“I can see the future”

“I can read minds”

“I can block all mental attacks” now it was the turn of the Cope’s.

“I can walk through things,” said Honey.

“I can turn invisible,” said Clarian.

“I can shoot electricity from my hands,” Bailey added. He was looking at me with recognition and I realized why. He had been at the Volturi.

“I and Michael have no special gift per se. But he is incredibly fast and I am strong as well”

“Hmm” muttered Emmett, probably thinking about fighting him.

“Well, that would be all. So, we can all hunt freely?” said Carlisle “see you soon” they turned to leave but Clarian was looking at me.

“Who are you?” she asked, “you don’t smell human yet you have a beating heart”

“I am Cadyna, Alice’s daughter. That’s all you need to know for now,” I said. I followed them out. I decided to go for a run. I was just in the woods when someone grabbed my arm. I pulled away and turned to see john.

“John, I thought you’d gone with your coven”

“What are you, really?”

“Trouble” I said. He stared at me for a split second. Then he pulled me at him and kissed me.
