Alexandra Rider POV

I opened up my window and gazed at the twinkling stars across the dark Chicago sky. I got the sensation that I was waiting for something. Then, a star shot across the sky. I closed my eyes.

"I wish that I was in Twilight," I whispered, and shut the window. I turned off the lights and went to sleep.


The next day, I walked into the woods just outside my house and climbed a tree. I sat down on a limb and started to read.

A few hours later, I sighed as I turned the last page of the book.

"And he leaned down to press his lips once more to my throat."

It was then that that it happened. The book slipped from my hands and I dived after it, without a second thought. I heard a loud, Crack!, as my arm hit a branch and I landed heavily on my ankle.

My eyes drooped and I lost consciousness.

I opened my eyes and found myself in a field. I saw a girl about my age with jet-black hair that looked like the winter night sky and dark brown eyes. She laughed and ran away from me. I chased her around flowers and trees. Suddenly, the trees were lit on fire. I screamed and ran from the flames, pulling the girl with me. Branches were falling and catching the meadow on fire. I couldn't run, I could only scream as the flames burned my flesh. The girl stayed silent.

I lifted my heavy eyes and gasped. There was a doctor. He was young, he was blond...and he was handsomer than any movie star I'd ever seen. He was pale, though, and tired looking, with circles under his eyes.

"Oh. My. Carlisle. I'm dead. I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead, I died, I'm dead."

"Hello, my name is Doctor Carlisle Cullen. You were in an accident and you hit your head pretty hard, there. You and your friend almost didn't make it-"

"Whoa, what friend? I was by myself." I told him. He motioned to someone sleeping next to me. I gasped; it was my penpal, Gloria. But...her hair was platinum blonde.

"I need to tell you something. You know about the myths about vam-" He started to say.

"-pires? Yes, I already know. You bit me and Gloria, didn't you?" I interrupted.

"Yes. How did you know that?" He asked in surprise.

"I know lot's of things, but it's not my power. I'm Alexandra Rider, but I like to be called Alex. This is Gloria Luna, and she like's to be called Lor. Hey, do you know where I can find an irritable grizzly bear or a mountain lion? I'm kind of thirsty."

"Sure, Alice needs to go, too. I'll get her." He said distractedly and left the room. I practically screamed. I was going to meet Alice! Gloria groaned next to me.

"Lor! WAKE UP!" I screamed.

"Wha?!" She said and sat up quickly. "Noway! I'm a vamp!" She said.

"No duh, Sherlock. You'll never guess where we are." I said.

"Alex? Is that you?" I nodded. "OME! We're in Forks, aren't we?"

"Yes! More specifically; in the Cullen household. Carlisle is getting Alice so that we can eat some irritable grizzly bear."

"Sweet! This is unbelievable!" She screamed.

"I know!" The door opened and a petite girl with spiky black hair and coal black eyes walked in.

"Hey, you two. I'm Alice." She introduced herself. "Oh, my lord. You really have to see yourselves." She led us to a mirror and I gasped. My freckles were gone and my unmanageable black hair now had tight ringlets and went to my waist. My bright green eyes were replaced with purple orbs.

"Holy shit! MY HAIR IS BLONDE!" Lor screeched. I put a hand over her mouth.

"Shush, we are right here, you do not need to shout." I told her. She licked my hand.

"EW!" I said, flipping my hand around in the air. "You licked my hand! You-you-you dumb blond!"

"At least I have normal eyes!" She said back at me. Thunder crashed outside and the light went out. All the faucets in the house turned on and air rushed around me as I glared at her.

"ALEX! Calm down!" Alice said. I took a few deep breaths and the faucets turned off and the air around me settled. The power went back on and it stopped raining.

"Remind me never to tick you off," Alice said.

"Why?" I asked, confused.

"You can control the elements, which means you can control the weather, too." Alice said.

"Cool." I said. Just then, Gloria's eyes went blank.

"EMMETT!" She said and opened the door. There was Emmett, holding up his fist as if he were just about to knock.

"How did she-" I asked Alice.

"Her power," Alice nodded. "Watch."

Lor gave Emmett a bear hug. "Ow! Can't...breathe!" He said.

"Oh, she can copy other vampire's powers, right?" I asked.

"I can? Sweet!" Lor asked.

"Yes," Alice said. "I checked the future for both of you, so I knew your powers before I knew your names. Anyway, we better get going before you guys get too thirsty." Alice said and stood up.

Three hours and four irritable grizzlies later, Alice, Lor, and I were walking up to the Cullen household. I hope they like me, and that Rosalie doesn't hate me.

"She won't," Lor said. I gasped.

"Get out of my head!" I said, and started to block my mind with Beatles songs.

"I hate the Beatles," Lor complained.

"Then stop reading my mind!" I told her and opened the door.

The living room was very bright, very open, and very large. This must have originally been several rooms, but the walls had been removed from most of the first floor to create one wide space. The back, south-facing wall had been entirely replaced with glass, and, beyond the shade of the cedars, the lawn stretched bare to the wide river. A massive curving staircase dominated the west side of the room. The walls, the high-beamed ceiling, the wooden floors, and the thick carpets were all varying shades of white. It reminded me of one of those Tupperware commercials.

There was the rest of the Cullen family, all seated at couches around the living room.

Alice sat down next to Jasper and Lor and I sat at a loveseat.

"Hi, I'm Esme." Esme said. "It's nice to meet you. You've already met Alice and Emmett, this is Jasper," She pointed to Jasper. "Rosalie," Who surprised me by smiling and waving. "And Edward." My breath caught as I saw Edward. He really was the closest thing to a Greek God. He chuckled, and, were I human, I would have blushed a deep scarlet.

"I'm Alexandra, or Alex, I'm 18 years old." Rosalie continued to smile at me. I got a feeling she was going to try to fulfill her wishes to have a child on us-or at least me, because I have a feeling Lor is going to be pulling some serious pranks on her before long.

"I'm Gloria, but you can call me Lor, and I'm 17."

"Makeover time!" Alice said suddenly, standing up and dragging Lor upstairs with me skipping ahead. Life was really going to start being interesting from now on.
