You're Still Here!
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!
I just thought of this one day and decided it would be cool to write.

I was in my room trying to do homework, but not being able to because my mind was stuck on today’s events. Edward had a sister?!?! Edward had a sister and didn’t tell me?!?! Didn’t tell anyone I would assume by the shock on Alice’s face earlier today in the cafeteria. This was big!
I gave up on trying to do homework and went downstairs to get something to eat, not that I was really hungry. Just as I reached the kitchen, the phone rang. I went over and answered it.
“Hey Bella,” Alice said.
“Hey Alice. What’s going on? With Edward and everyone, I mean.”
“It’s going good, I guess. His sister and her friends are going to stay with us until they find a place to live. They were staying in a hotel,” she told me.
“That’s good,” I said. I was still in shock though. I couldn’t seem to take everything in. It was just a little too much.
“I was wondering if you would like to come over and meet them, too. They should meet you.”
“Okay. Just let me call Charlie first, then I’ll be right over,” I told her. I was really grateful that Charlie ungrounded me last week. It would be so much easier to digest this news with someone else.
After I hung up with her, I called Charlie at the station.
“Hello?” Someone said through the receiver.
“Hello. This is Bella Swan. May I talk to my dad please?”
“Charlie’s kid, right?”
“Hold on a minute.”
I waited while the man went to get Charlie. About a minute later, I heard Charlie speak through the receiver.
“Hey Bella,” he said
“Hey Dad. I was just wondering if you could pick up a pizza on your way home. I’m going over to the Cullens’ and probably won’t have time to make dinner.”
“Sure,” he answered. He sounded a little unhappy. That was probably from the fact that I was going to hang out with Edward. He’d get over it though. I needed to see him and Alice.
“Bye kiddo,” he said. Then I hung up.
I drove over to the Cullens’ house and when I got out of the car, I saw another car in the drive. It didn’t belong to the Cullens, but it did look expensive, and fast. I wonder if the want to drive fast cars was a trait that all vampires shared. Hmm, maybe.
I walked up the steps and knocked on the door. Alice was there in a second.
“Bella!” she exclaimed and pulled me into a hug.
“Hey Alice,” I said when she released me.
She pulled me inside and shut the door. “Clara, Karen, and Sandra just got back from getting their things from their hotel and are upstairs unpacking. What do you want to do while we wait for them to finish?”
“I’d actually like to see Edward, if you don’t mind,” I told her.
“Oh. Okay. He’s upstairs in his room.” She looked a little disappointed, but let me go.
I headed up the stairs to the second floor and passed Emmett and Rosalie’s open door. Emmett called out to me as I walked by.
“Hey Emmett,” I said to him.
“Did you know about this?”
“You mean about Edward’s sister?”
“Not until today.”
“Oh, okay. Because if you had known something and hadn’t told me, I would’ve have been real mad at you.”
“I swear I didn’t know a thing. It’s a huge surprise to me, too.”
“I believe you.”
“Did you hear they were staying with us?” Rosalie asked, walking out of the closet.
I was shocked that she actually talked to me. She had no reason to. I wonder why she did. I quickly covered my shock and answered her question. “Yeah. Alice told me.”
“They can find a perfectly suitable place to live in four days! They don’t need to stay here!”
“Rosalie, calm down. She’s Edward’s sister! There’s no reason that they can’t stay here for a few days,” Emmett said.
“It won’t be for just a few days. It will be a few weeks. Then months. Soon they’ll be a permanent part of the family!”
“Rosalie,” Emmett said again.
“Bella agrees with me, don’t you Bella?”
“Umm…” I didn’t know what to say. I did think Rosalie was over reacting a little. But I didn’t want to risk getting on her bad side again when she was just starting to except me, or so it seemed, by saying no.
“You don’t have to answer that Bella. You go on ahead to where you were headed,” Emmett told me.
I hurried off before Rosalie could ask me anymore questions like that. I headed up the stairs to the third floor, then walked down the hall to Edward’s room. I couldn’t wait to see him. To talk to him. I needed to talk to him. I was at his door. I turned the knob and opened it and-- OH MY GOD!
