You're Still Here!

Summary:
Somebody comes to Forks that Edward thought should have died a long time ago. How will this new arrival affect the Cullens' and Bella's life? I know it says no spoilers, but there actually are a few. DISCLAIMER: I do not own any of the Twilight characters!


Notes:
I just thought of this one day and decided it would be cool to write.

Sandra’s P.O.V.

“You’re brother rocks for letting us stay here,” Karen exclaimed. “I thought we would have to live in that cruddy hotel for the next few weeks before we found a house. But this is so much better. This is like a freaking mansion!”

We’d gone to get our stuff from the hotel we were staying in, just about 10 minutes away, or at least in our car it was 10 minutes away, after talking for about 20 more minutes. Clara’s brother’s family seemed very nice. Now we were in the room the were letting us stay in. Everyone went off on their own business, letting us unpack.

“I know. And he’s hot,” I added. “Too bad he has a girlfriend already.”

“Don’t go getting any ideas, Sandra. She means a lot to him,” Karen said.

“I can’t believe that you would think something like that, Clara.”

“Really? I can. You are the biggest flirt I’ve ever seen. It’s really gross sometimes,” Karen told me.

I glared over at Karen. “I was talking about that human meaning a lot to him. She’s so ordinary. What in the world could he possibly see in her?”

“A lot. They have quite a history,” Karen told me. And of course she would know. She’s so lucky that she has stupid power. It really sucks for the rest of us, though.

“Yeah, yeah. Whatever. I’m going to go mingle some. See ya later.”

“Remember what Karen said!” Clara yelled out the bedroom door after me. “Don’t try anything!”

“With any of them!” Karen added.

“Especially my brother!”

God. Those two worry too much. What harm has ever come from flirting? Plus, Edward is hot! I would regret it for the rest of my existence if I didn’t go and flirt with him. And I don’t want that. That’s a really long time to have full of regret.

And it would show him that he could do so much better than that insignificant little human. I really don’t know what he sees in her. She’s not even that pretty. Finally I got to his room. I knocked on the door.

“Come in,” I heard him call from inside the room.

I stepped in and spotted him on sitting on a black leather sofa, reading. He put the book down when I was about two feet away from him.

“Hello. Are you finished unpacking?”

“Almost, but I needed a break,” I answered back. I turned to one of his walls that was covered with CDs. “You seem to have quite a collection, here,” I said as I walked over to examine the shelves more thoroughly. Or so it would seem. I actually wasn’t paying one bit of attention to the CDs. I could care less that he happened to have Matchbox 20, which I saw while skimming through the CDs. Music was Karen’s thing. Especially rock. I’m more of a fashion person.

“Yeah. They start accumulating during 50 years.”

I laughed a little at that. Not because I found it terribly funny, though.

I decided to change the subject, not wanting to be stuck on music by showing too much interest. I walked over to his wall size window and told him, while looking out it “You have a very nice house. Thank you for letting us stay here. It was very nice of you.”

“Not a problem. We’re happy to do it. I’m just so happy to see Clara again.”

“Yeah. I bet. It’s so cool that you two both ended up in the same town after all of these years.” As I was saying this, I made my way over to his sofa and sat down next to him.

“I know. I can’t believe it. That she is a vampire, too.”

“It’s weird what fate sometimes has in store for us.”

“Yes, it is.”

“It’s like one day, you can be planning on doing what you normally do, whether its going to school, or work, or wherever, just trying to get by. And the next, you find out that you’ve just one the lottery or something.”

“I know.”

“Or, one day you can be dating someone, and then this other person comes along, and you’re like ‘What was I thinking?’ because you like this new person better than who you were dating before. You just didn’t know her before.”

“What are you talking about?”

“Fate. You could be with someone one day, and then fate would bring you to someone else.”

“Sandra, I know what you’re doing.”

“What do you mean?” I asked? I seriously had no idea what I was doing that he could know. I hoped Karen wasn’t watching this, though. Clara would probably bang down the door. Thinking about Karen’s power made me remember, though. Edward had a power, too! He could read minds! Dang it.

“I love Bella. I know that you like to flirt, but I won’t flirt back. Nor will any of the other guys in this house. I’m sorry.

Ugh! I hate that all these vampires have all these powers and I don’t! It’s so unfair! I could so go for a hypnotizing power! Especially right now! Ugh!

He chuckled a little, and then said “I’m sorry,” again.

He was starting to get up from the couch when a brilliant idea hit me. In less than half a second my lips were on his.

Two unfortunate things- for him and for me- happened right after that. The unfortunate thing for me was that he didn’t me kiss back. That never happened before! The unfortunate thing for him was that his human girlfriend walked in right then to find us kissing on his sofa.
