"How are your family going to handle it when you tell them I know? Will they get mad at me?"

"If they're likely to get mad at anybody it will either be me or that mutt"

"Why you?"

"If I'd been composed, I could have let you think it was just a stupid rumour that the wolf boy stuck in your head" we were heading down the stairs to the living room, to wait for the rest of the family.

"Hey Edward? What's it like?"

"To become a vampire? Painful"

"How is it done?"

"I'm not going to tell you"

"Why not?"

"Why do you want to know?"

"You shouldn't answer a question with a question," I said.

"You shouldn't answer a question with an evasive statement like that" I resisted the urge to stick my tongue out at him like a five year old.

"Edward. Just shut up" I said. He grinned.

"The family will be here in two minutes"

"Can you smell them or something?" he face twitched like he was fighting a smile.

"Kind of but it's also because of what I can do. I can read minds"

"Wow. So...what am I thinking?"

"I can't read yours"


"Why, were you thinking something embarrassing?"
unconsciously my mind had started thinking about how hot he looked.

"Maybe" I said, evasively.

"What about?"

"If I didn't want you to read that thought I doubt very much that I'm going to just tell you," he laughed. Then he stopped abruptly.

"They're nearly here. Bella, listen to me. I want you to stay behind me. I don't anticipate trouble but Rosalie might go for you or Jasper. Okay? So I want you to stay behind me"

"What happens if both of them go for me?"

"I'll try and block them. And you should get behind Alice, Carlisle and Esme. I know for a fact they won't hurt you"


"I have no idea. I'll be able to see when I've read his thoughts but we had better be careful. Shh, I need to focus. They'll be here in one second" on cue, the door opened. I tensed.

"How's the hand Bella?" asked Carlisle.

"Fine" I said, quietly. Everyone looked at me, and at Edward.

"What's happened?" asked Esme.

"Well, as you know Bella was surprised by an old friend of hers and he...well he said some stuff about us"

"Bella, you know they're idiotic stories," said Emmett.
Edward sighed.

"It's too late for that" he said. Everybody froze. Who would move first?

"You idiot Edward!" shrieked Rosalie "You broke the rules!" she screamed like a harpy. As Edward had predicted, she leapt at me. Edward jumped in front of her and grappled with her.

"Bella!" he said. I moved towards Esme and Carlisle, longing for safety. Jasper, seemingly oblivious, turned and grabbed me.

"Jasper!" snapped Carlisle. It was too late. He had me, holding me tightly with one hand on my throat. He could snap it before I could blink. I noticed that Edward was also in the same position, gripping Rosalie. I knew that Jasper and Rosalie had no relationship. There was nothing stopping Jasper. I gasped as his hands tightened on my throat.

"Let her go" said Edward, his voice venomous.

"Let Rosalie go!" said Emmett, worry in his voice for his mate.

"Let Bella go!" repeated Edward.

"You know the rules Edward! Human's who know about us have only two options, join us or die. Who's going to turn her, you? Don't make me laugh!"

"Let her go Jasper!" said Edward. I was having trouble breathing. Jasper glared at Edward. Edward glared back. I needed to breathe!
