Chapter 4

“My – my powers?” Bella stuttered obviously a little wary of learning of new found powers. Personally I was exuberant. I didn’t have to change her; we could be together forever and all of eternity. I did feel selfish though, I got to keep her, she would stay warm, and I could forever hear her heartbeat…I’m not sure why exactly but I felt selfish. Jasper must have picked up on it because he raised an eyebrow and asked

What’s up? Shouldn’t you be jumping for joy now?

I just shook my head saying I’d tell him later, he nodded acknowledging it.

“Yes, yes your powers! Would you like to start with anything in particular?” Enid asked excitedly. Bella looked thoughtful for a moment then said

“I think…I think the nature…thing.” She finished laughing at her eloquence.

“Oh, yes! That should be fun. All right let’s see…you’re the first since me to have the gene so I have never had to train before but don’t worry it’ll all be fine! All right well I guess I should explain it a bit first shouldn’t I? You can control some of the weather, to an extent. For instance – She swept her hand above her thought sun, instantly the clouds parted and rays of sunshine flooded the yard. She saw us said

“oops, better fix that I suppose” She waved her hand again bringing the clouds back. Bella just stared, eyes wide. I myself was a trifle shocked but didn’t show it quite so. Enid just giggled at Bella’s expression, realizing she was staring she quickly snapped out of it.

“I – I don’t think I can do that.” Bella said shaking her head. “I mean…a human isn’t supposed to be able to do that! And that’s what I am! I. Am. Human. End of story. And even if I’m not, why would these…powers, just start up all of a sudden?”

“That’s a good question” I added “Why did they just start?” I looked to Enid, as did the others.She looked thoughtful for a moment then began

“Usually they start after…a …traumatic event. Some never realize their potential because, thankfully, they’ve never had any pain. But when someone has the trait, and they go through something that changes them forever, it brings out that trait. If I may be so bold, what do you think happened to cause your powers to show them?” Bella looked down playing with her fingers, I hooked my finger under her chin and forced her to look at me, her gentle doe eyes slightly wet with tears she searched mine. I took a deep breath and said

“I left her.” I heard Enid gasp but went on “There was an … incident” everyone could feel the shame pouring off of Jasper, Bella turned to her side where Jasper was sitting next to us and laid a hand on his shoulder, he looked up and smiled slightly.

“I felt that my world wasn’t right for Bella, that I put her in danger every moment she was with me, which you can’t deny, I do” she scowled at that but I ignored her

“So I did the only thing I could think of, I left her. It was the most horrifying and stupid decision that I have ever made in my entire existence and I regret it every moment of every day. But on with the story, we were separated for roughly six months; I believe neither of us lived during those six months, we both basically…cut ourselves off. Completely.” I sighed looking down at my precious angel, she gazed back up at me forgiveness in her eyes; I still could not fathom how she forgave me so easily, instantly, but I wasn’t about to fight her on it. I looked back up at Enid when her thoughts had gone blank seeing her face mirrored her mind. Suddenly, almost too fast for me, the vampire to see, she lunged forward. Her red auburn hair wild about her she crashed my down to the floor.

“YOU LEFT MY GRANDDAUGHTER?!” She shrieked at such a high decibel it nearly beat out Alice when there was a sale at Lomans.

“Grandma! Get off of my fiancée!” I heard Bella yell. Enid looked down at me with disdain, huffed and stood up and subtly kicked my side. I propped myself up on my elbows and looked on amused, that was nearly as fun as wrestling with Emmett; but I certainly deserved it, much more actually. I watched as Enid smoothed her clothing and sat back down at again looking at Bella with a cocked eyebrow silent asking her why on Earth she was still with me. Bella sighed and rolled her eyes

“Lovely, had to go through this with Edward, then Jacob, then Charlie then all of Forks and now my grandmother, just wonderful. Listen, Edward was doing what he thought was best for me; it hurt him just as much as much as it did me. In fact, this idiot” She pointed to me, I returned the gesture by smiling innocently, she rolled her eyes again

“Went all the way to freaking Italy to get killed, yea a suicidal vampire; how many of those do you get?” She asked sarcastically. Enid’s wide hazel eyes blinked and she asked in a hush tone towards me

“You went to the Volturi?” Obviously being part of the mythical world clues you in on these things. I nodded and she gaped

“But…why? Why didn’t you just go back to her?” I turned slowly to Bella clearing my throat at her, she suddenly looked very small, playing with her fingers, a blush flaming her cheeks. She laughed nervously while tucking a piece of hair behind her ear

“Ha, funny story grandma, you see…I kind of figured out that when I did something stupid I could remember him better. So I kind of…um…” she seemed very wary of saying it so Emmett blurted it out

“She jumped off a cliff, Alice saw it told Rosie, Rose told Edward, Edward went all angst teenager on us running off to kill himself while Alice went to try and help Charlie from losing his only daughter only to find Bella alive and well, sort of, then had the vision of said suicidal Edward and took Bella with her to try and save the always moody Edward Cullen. There, end of story.” He finished grinning. Rosalie slapped him giving him a withering look, he simply shrugged.

“Yea, well that’s basically it.” Bella added. Enid just looked on in shock but choked out

“Well…fine then. Sorry Edward but she is my granddaughter and if you hurt again I will cheerfully beat you.”She said sweetly with a smile. That was oddly familiar…Alice stepped over to her and putting an arm around she smiled and said

“You know, I have feeling we are going to be very good friends.”

“Oh brother…” I heard Bella mutter, I couldn’t help but agree.

“Well, back on the subject at hand…would you like to find out more and test out your powers?” Enid asked excited yet again, I was beginning to think she might be bipolar… I felt Bella tense and hoping to ease her whispered in her ear

“You don’t have to right away you now…but it would be incredibly alluring.” I felt her relax and she twisted around to glare playfully at me

“Great now I have to!” She kissed my nose then, a seemingly innocent gesture that sent shock waves through me. I heard Jasper snicker and just shook his head.

“What are you laughing at?” Bella asked curiously. Wait, she shouldn’t have been able to hear that, obviously the others thought that because they looked at her shocked.

“What?” She asked.

“Did I mention all of our senses are heightened as well? Not as much as you vampires but still a good deal. Your hearing, eyesight, and sense of smell have been amped nearly to the point of the vampires, theirs is only a bit better; it would be as though comparing a human with average eyesight to one with 20/20.” Bella looked on her eyes sparkling and uttered one word

“Sweet!” We all chuckled but knew the feeling, it was incredibly invigorating, albeit a bit disconcerting when you woke up as a vampire and could make out every particle of dust in the air, the rainbows that were thrown into the wind, and colors that dull human eyes couldn’t even dream of. Esme clearing her throat spoke up

“Why don’t you try your other powers honey, such as the nature ones? Try what your Grandmother Enid did.” Of course Esme would find them the most interesting; she loved spending hours on end in her garden. Bella looked nervous but she obliged seeming to come to terms to the fact that eventually she would have to learn.

“All right, what do I do?” She asked looking to Enid.

“Just focus on causing some sort of change in weather, whatever you like. Then sweep you hand above you and focus. When you become more attuned to yourself you’ll be able to do all this without the motions.” Bella did as told and suddenly a light sprinkle of rain came over us. Bella looked up shocked and then looked to me. I myself was flabbergasted; my Bella was…using her powers. Bella looking rather afraid uttered one sentence

“Holy crap.”

Well that about covered it for myself as well.
