On the surface

Summary:
Niam has no one, except the memories of her dead parents. On the surface she seems fine. hardworking, friendly. but she's not. she's upset with herself. And lonely. She needs someone who will look into her soul and save what she has left. Teen rating for darkness...


Notes:
This was exceptionally easy to write. So lots of updates i hope. This is before Bella comes on the scene (and no, Edward is not going to get off with Niam) and before the Cullen's go to Forks.

Wow didn't even cover it.

"Well, that explains why you never seem to sleep. So, Jasper, if you're a vampire...how come you could bear my blood? I mean, I was bleeding when you found me" the look on his face told me, he'd hoped I wouldn't ask that
question.

"It was hard. When I first saw you, my instincts overruled me. I was going to attack you. But then I told myself to focus. Normally my mind wouldn't be able to do that, nothing can pull you out of the bloodlust. But I thought about you and I pulled through. I didn't want to hurt you," he said.

"So...you really like me?" I said.

"Didn't we already cover this?" he asked.

"Yes but...I find it hard"

"I understand Niam. Truly, I do" his tone told me he did. I smiled.

"Hey! I just realized something," he said, brightly.

"What's that?" I asked, slightly worried.

"You can walk"

"Er...wow! I can walk like every other creature on earth," I said sarcastically.

"No, I mean your legs have healed. You can leave the bed and roam. I don't think you should try school but you can spread out a bit now. I can show you the house, the library"

"That's great. Seeing as I can't actually read"

"How is your sight?"

"Foggy. It's like being in an unlit room at night but with a TV on. Small amount of light but not enough to read by"

"Right" he said.

"Jasper" said a voice "Esme and Carlisle want to talk to you. Downstairs" I recognized the voice but couldn't place it.

"No" said Jasper.

"Jasper, you have to. It's a private conversation. I'm sure Niam will be fine for three minutes without you. I'll watch her if you want" what was it? That voice, velvet and seductive. It sent chills of fear down my spine though I didn't know why.

"Fine" Jasper didn't sound happy. He squeezed my hand and left the room with a disgruntled sigh.

"Niam" said the voice "It's been a long time" I blinked, trying to clear the fog from my eyes. I strained to see in the direction of the silhouette. I could see dark eyes and golden hair. He move closer to me and the fog started to thin.

"Niam, I'm disappointed. You stopped wearing my bracelet"

Flashback

The car was driving steadily along the road.

"That was an utter waste of time! We couldn't even hear you! I mean, why should we have to pay good money to listen to you playing that stupid instrument like crap!"

"Sorry dad" I muttered. The car went over a rock. Suddenly we were flying. I was tossed over in my seat. I banged my head on the window. I screamed as my head shot forward. We landed and the crash of glass and protesting metal made my ears bleed in pain. Shards of glass sliced through the car seats. The silence and darkness was unnerving. I felt cool hands on me as I was tugged from the car.

"Hey? Wake up! Can you hear me?" said an irritated voice.
I opened my eyes.

"Good, I thought that that car had squished you like a bug" it was him. He had told me he'd get rid of dad.

"Well, I kept my end of the bargain" he said.

"No! You killed my mum! I just wanted rid of dad"

"I said I'd get rid of your dad. I never said anything about anyone else in your family"

"You monster!"

"I'm afraid that this comes at a price. You belong to me now" he took my hand and kissed my wrist on the point where my veins were most prominent. Then he slipped a silver chain around my wrist.

"You belong to me now," he repeated, before he disappeared.
