Disclaimer: I do not own twilight and my friend doesn’t mind being a character and is looking forward to what I write Lost and Found A Twilight crossover Pairings usual except for Edward/my character Bella/Jacob My character is based on my best friend, the only one that I ever trust. There are similarities between them, but this one has an ending. I’m trying to write it as if from her point of view. It will change POV sometimes. Senior year, Edward and Bella have split for good, but the Cullens haven’t left. Ch 6 Getting To Know You Carrie POV Beep, Beep, Beep, Be-. The sounds of my watch echoed through my sleep filled mind shaking me from the blissfulness of my unconscious state. I opened my eyes with a tired sigh four hours of sleep just does not work. With a defeated yawn I got out of my make-shift bed and stretched my tired muscles. Before I did anything I decided to see if I could find any shoes around the house that were unwanted, and just my luck there were some near the garbage pile in the front yard. They were a pair of summer shoes, thin, not waterproof, but they weren’t so worn out that they were being held together by duct tape. So far my luck has been holding out and for that I am thankful. I went back to my area and looked around and started to think then. Since I have food, I’m going to have to seal up my den during the day so nothing can get in and to my store. A rock would be best especially if it was placed in such a way where I can squeeze in and nothing else much larger then me. And if I had some branches or something set up inside to stop or slow down smaller animals, and if they get trapped inside I have meat. To be on the safe side I need to find a way to seal up my food. Maybe I could get a small chest in here. The question is where to find it. I think I‘ll get to work on it this weekend. I went back into my den and grabbed a banana, two slices of bread and a handful of crackers. I went out and sat by the smoldering fire to try and warm up. With the smokeless fire I might be able to have one in my den when winter comes. Winter was something that I needed to think about and prepare for soon if I wanted to survive. Winters are harsher in areas such as these so I would need to be prepared to fight off the elements. I ate my breakfast, brushed my teeth, washed, and changed. It wasn’t raining when I left so I had only my sweater on. For some reason I was in a good mood, which was very rare, so I was humming a random tune. I heard a noise approaching and I saw a silver Volvo drive by. I recognized it as the Cullen’s’ vehicle. ‘Why must they drive so fast? It’s not as if they were going to be late or anything. I have a greater chance of being late because I walk.’ By the time I got to the school I made sure that all traces of my good mood were gone from my face. In English we got our new reading and writing assignment. We were to read Jane Smiley’s’ A Thousand Acres and write an essay on how it compares and contrasts with Shakespeare’s King Lear. Great it’s the original and the retelling project. In Latin we were given the story of Daimion which we had to translate. “Alright class, get with your partners and get translating, and remember this is what Simon says.” said Ms. Simon. I told you she was crazy. Emmett came over and pulled a desk right next to me. He was too close for comfort so I turned my desk so we were face to face. “What? Was I invading your personal space?” he asked his tone jovial. “You do the first paragraph and I’ll do the one after that. We’ll do the first two pages for tomorrow.” I told him and the entire time he tried to strike up conversation, but it didn’t go any where. He also seemed to watch what my reaction was to everything. ‘Well I’ve been told that I look like a depressed teenager. With my life, what’s there to be depressed about?’ Please note that I am using sarcasm. In chemistry, even Rosalie who I pictured as an uncaring person of those she does not like, was questioning me. Even though she seemed reluctant about it and like Emmett she kept at it. She was asking about my family, I told her that they seem happy. When she asked me how I was, I told her that I’m alive. I really ought to stop talking; I never talk this much to anyone before. When I entered biology class and took my seat behind Edward and Bella. Bella turned around and said to me, “Hey Carrie, how do you like Forks so far?” “It’s ok I guess. It seems nicer then most places that I have been.” I replied out of courtesy. “What do you like about it?” questioned Edward looking truly interested. I hesitate before answering. ‘Why am I doing this,’ I questioned myself.“I like the rain.” I told him. “What do you like about it?” he asked me. What is it with this family and asking me all kinds of nonsense questions? I sent him a questioning look, wondering why he and the rest of his family seem so curious about me. What is so interesting about me? ‘Absolutely nothing,’ I thought still looking at Edward. “It’s alright there is nothing to be worried about. He was sort of the same way with me when I moved here last year.” Bella told me. I took a deep breath and sighed before I answered him. “I like the rain because it’s cleansing. I feel clean and untainted. I like the rain, because I love how the sky looks during a storm. I like the rain for there is a smaller chance of sun, like my life as it has been and always will be.” I whispered the last part to myself. “What was that you said about the sun,” Bella asked. “Sunlight gives me a headache most of the time.” I told her. With that I turned my attention back to the teacher and ignoring Edward and Bella. If I was surprised by the Cullen’s behavior toward me so far, I was really shocked by what was to happen next. On my way out of biology Edward came up beside me and walked with me toward lunch. I could feel everyone’s eyes on us as we walked to the cafeteria. There’s going to be some interesting rumors going around now. I head toward the table that I sat at yesterday in the same seat. Edward sat his stuff down and went to get his lunch. I watched in confusion and slight shock as they rest of his family came to my table and did the same as Edward. I just shrugged it off and got started on the homework that I already had for tonight. They all came back to the table with their food and sat down. They didn’t say anything as I looked at each of them. I could tell I had a look of confusion on my face as I gazed upon them. I shrugged and turn backed to my work. This was after all a public place and I did not own this table. “You don’t mind if we sit here do you?” asked Edward his tone had a strange timber in it. If I did not know any better I would say that he was trying to ‘charm’ me. “Do what you want, it matters not.” I told them without stopping my work. I knew it was rude, but I could not really afford to waste time with idle chatter. Not if I wanted to get any sleep tonight. “I have my part of the first two pages done of the translation.” Emmett told me while handing me what I assumed was the translation. I took it, copied the translation, and handed it back with a quite thanks. “Do you have your part done yet?” he asked when he accepted the paper back. “Not yet, but you will have it before class tomorrow.” I told him. Things were quite for a moment. I could feel that they were curious about me and watching me while I work. “Do you want to come with us and Bella to the café after school,” asked Edward his tone friendly. “I can’t, I have to work after school.” I told him. It was quite for a while and I continued to do my homework. Of course the silence could not last. “So why aren’t you eating anything Carrie.” asked Alice. “I’m not hungry,” I told them. When in reality I was hungry and I was thankful for the noise in the cafeteria so they couldn’t hear my stomach growl at that moment. “Besides I could ask you the same thing.” Oh my God why did I do that? Why am I carrying on a conversation? I’m not supposed to be seen or heard.’ “What do you mean by that,” questioned Jasper. “I mean that you guys get food, but you don’t eat it. Why buy the food if you’re not going to eat it? It is not only a waste of money; it is also a waste of food. Each of your meals could feed someone less fortunate. Some people would give anything to just have one meal like that, or just to have food.” I paused. ‘You don’t realize how fortunate you are.’ “Is that why you were digging in the trash?” Rosalie asked her tone snippy. I stopped working because of the shock of hearing that statement. I was surprised that was brought up. I’ve never had anyone question me about it. I also have never been caught either. I looked up to glare at Rosalie. ‘Wow another emotion; I’ve been feeling a lot of those lately.’ My response was, “Well if your brother told you about that, then ask him what I told him about it” With that said I got up, gathered my things and headed outside for the rest of the period. In math I ignored Alice, and I ignored all the Cullen’s in gym by trying to stay as far away from them as I could. The teacher wasn’t a hundred percent happy with my shoes, but said that they would do. Alice didn’t try to hang around me in the locker room, she gave me some space. I didn’t say anything to her and changed when I thought she wasn’t looking. I use my free period as a study hall to get my work done. After school I went to the garbage to dig up more grub. I ate one of the apples I found on my way to work. At work it was the same as yesterday. I was cleaning a table when I heard Megan call out to me. “Hey Carrie, go clean off one of the larger tables, we have a large group here.” She turned back to the group and told them to follow me to their table. When I finished I turned around and saw that the group was the Cullen’s plus Bella. I motioned for them to take their seats. On the left was Alice, Bella, with Edward on the end. On the right were Rosalie, Emmett then Jasper. I left so their waitress could take their orders. During my break I sat in a secluded corner since it was raining heavily outside. I finished my part of the translation and handed it Emmett as my break ended, because the group was still there. Since the group was still there I went over to collect any dirty dishes from their table so they would have more room. The only person who had anything was Bella. ‘Do the Cullen’s ever eat? Bella acts like it is normal behavior. Oh well.’ Even as I dismiss it I could not help but file it in the ‘weird’ section of my mind. When I reached across, I tried to hurry, so I wouldn’t be in their way and so that my scars wouldn’t stand out. As I went to pull away Edward grabbed my wrist. I flinched at the contact. I went to look at him just to see him staring at my arm. “Can I help you,” I asked him. He just continued to stare at my arm. “So, when do you get off work Carrie?” Jasper asked. He seemed to be trying to keep his eyes off of the arm that Edward was holding. “I get off at nine,” I told him. I flinched away as Edward reached out for my other arm. Everyone seemed to be looking at my arms. Bella looked to see what had everyone’s attention. She gasped as she saw my arms. ‘Gees what’s wrong them. They act like they haven’t seen scars or burns before.’ “Carrie, how did you get those marks on your arms?” Bella asked. She seemed close to going into hysterics. “I’m clumsy and accidents happen.” I told them while still trying to pull out of Edwards grasp. It was harder then it should have been since I was trying to keep my mind off of how nice it actually felt. “Your arms are practically covered in scars and burn marks though,” Rosalie stated while leaning closer to get a better look. “Yeah well, I’m pretty clumsy.” I told them still trying to escape. Edward let go of one arm and reached up as if he was going to pull up my sleeve. “Carrie, get back to work. I don’t pay you to socialize.” my boss Megan yelled to me. That seemed to startle Edward enough that I was able to pull out of his grasp and get back to work. They left the café a short time later. The rest of the night was uneventful. I finished up at work, clocked out at nine, and got home by ten, dismissed at around eleven thirty, ate a stick of jerky and some bread and was finally in bed by one. Edward’s Pov Today is the day that I would try to get some answers about Carrie. Every one decided to try and talk to Carrie in class to discover if Carlisle’s assumption was correct. We are all kind of confused as to why we are doing this, but we cannot deny the pull that we feel, drawing us toward her. On the way to school we passed by Carrie. There appeared to be smile on her face. “Jasper what did you get from her,” I asked. “She seems happy about something,” he responded. ‘What is she happy about?’ I watched as she walked toward the school from next to my car. All traces of happiness from earlier are gone from her face. Her face is blank as usual. I follow her as she goes to her locker and heads to her first class, which I discovered was English. I know Emmett and Rosalie would get her first so I had to be patient. Biology came and I took my seat watching the door. She walked in and took her seat behind Bella and I. Bella turned to her and said, “Hey Carrie, how do you like Forks so far?” “It’s ok I guess. It seems nicer then most places that I have been.” she replied. “What do you like about it?” I asked. She seemed to hesitate before answering, “I like the rain.” “What do you like about it?” I questioned her. She gave me a questioning look. I could faintly see confusion and slight curiosity. Bella must have seen the look on her face for she said, “It’s alright there is nothing to be worried about. He was sort of the same way with me when I moved here last year.” She took a deep breath before answering. “I like the rain because it’s cleansing. I feel clean and untainted. I like the rain, because I love how the sky looks during a storm. I like the rain for there is a smaller chance of sun, like my life as it has been and always will be.” My curiosity was sparked again with her last whispered remark. “What was that you said about the sun,” Bella asked. “Sunlight gives me a headache most of the time.” She told Bella. She turned her attention back to the teacher. When she left class I decided to walk with her to the cafeteria. She seemed to be surprised by my actions but she didn’t say anything. I followed her to the table she sat at yesterday. I set my stuff down and grabbed lunch, my siblings were to do the same thing. We were each to get something different and maybe try to get Carrie to eat or at least take some food so she won’t have to go digging in the trash. When we came back to the table and sat down. Carrie looked at us briefly with a look of confusion before shrugging and going back to her homework. “You don’t mind if we sit here do you?” I asked trying to sound a little compelling so she would not refuse my request. “Do what you want, it matters not.” she told us without stopping her work. “I have my part of the first two pages done of the translation.” Emmett told her. He handed her what I assumed was the translation. She took it, copied it and handed it back to Emmett with subdued thanks. “Do you have your part done yet?” he asked. “Not yet, but you will have it before class tomorrow.” she told him. Things were quite for a moment. We were watching her, trying to figure out how to get answers out of her and to help her if she is in some kind of trouble. Then I remembered that we were going to go to Maria’s after school with Bella, and decided to ask her if she wanted to come along. “Do you want to come with us and Bella to the café after school,” I asked my tone friendly. “I can’t, I have to work after school.” she told me. It was quite for a while for we were again unsure of what to do or say. “So why aren’t you eating anything Carrie.” asked Alice. “I’m not hungry,” she said, but I could have sworn that I heard her stomach growl just then. “Besides I could ask you the same thing.” she seemed surprised or shocked at what she just said. ‘Why would she be?’ “What do you mean by that,” questioned Jasper. “I mean that you guys get food, but you don’t eat it. Why buy the food if you’re not going to eat it. It is not only a waste of money; it is also a waste of food. Each of your meals could feed someone less fortunate. Some people would give anything to just have one meal like that, or just to have food.” Carrie said. “Is that why you were digging in the trash?” asked Rosalie. She stopped working after Rosalie said that, we all turned to Rosalie and glared at her. We weren’t the only ones. Carrie looked at her also with a glare on her face. I felt a slight chill at her anger. “Well if your brother told you about that, then ask him what I told him about it” With that said she got up, gathered her things and headed out of the cafeteria. “Nice going Rosalie. We are supposed to make things better not worse.” I told her my voice angry. I had not wanted her to know that I had told them of her dumpster diving. “Why are we helping her anyways? She is a human, she is not one of us.” she snapped. “With your history, we figured that you would want to help.” Emmett brought up. “How dare you,” sneered Rosalie. “It’s not the same. I would have been fine; I didn’t ask for this, you know that. Besides, how do we know what she wants?” “Calm down Rosalie, we didn’t mean it like that,” Jasper said, trying to calm her down. “What about Alice’s vision about the tears.” “I think we should back off a little bit, she might be a bit of overwhelmed right know. You saw how confused she was. She hid it well, but few things get past our eyes and senses.” Alice said. We decided that that was the best for now. So when gym came around we saw that she wanted to avoid us so we kept our distance. “What did you see Alice,” I asked. She was supposed to see if she could see anything. “Nothing really, she dresses quite fast for a human, but I couldn’t really tell anything in the locker rooms lighting, and with her skin tone. Mainly she was changed before I could see anything. There appears to be some marks on her arms and legs, but she kept herself hidden most of the time.” she said. I noticed that she had ‘new’ shoes, but they were still inappropriate for class and the area in which we live. They were thin summer shoes, which appeared not to be the right size. ‘At least they are not held together by duct tape.’ After gym I looked around the property to see if she was out. I went out to the dumpsters and waited in the trees to see if she would come out today. She didn’t by the time school let out, so I headed out to my car to wait for every one. Alice rode with Bella to Maria’s, while everyone else traveled with me. We walked up to the hostess, Megan, so we could be shown to our table. “Hey Carrie, go clean off one of the larger tables, we have a large group here.” She called out. ‘So this is where she works,’ I thought. She told us to follow her to our table. Carrie cleaned off our table and motioned for us to take our seats. On the left was Alice, Bella, with me on the end. On the right were Rosalie, Emmett then Jasper. Carrie left so the waitress could take our orders. I watched Carrie as she worked. She cleaned the floors and the tables and picked up the dirty dishes. During her break she sat in a secluded corner and worked on her homework. She finished something and walked over to our table. She handed something to Emmett. It must have been her part of the translation that she was talking about earlier. I was surprised to find out she wrote in cursive since I haven’t seen her writing before. It would look better if it wasn’t so rushed. After some time she came over to our table to collect Bella’s’ dirty dishes. It appeared that she was trying to be quick about it, but when she went to pull back I saw her arm I was shocked, I didn’t even realize that I grabbed her arm until she tried to pull out of my grip. “Can I help you,” she asked. I just continued to stare at her arm. I was getting angry at what I was seeing. Her arm was nothing but scars and burns. “So, when do you get off work Carrie?” Jasper asked. I could tell that he was trying to keep his sight off of her arms. I could feel my thirst get greater the longer I look at her arms. “I get off at nine,” I heard her say. I went to reach for her other arm to see what condition it was in. I didn’t get past my attention that she flinched away as I reached out toward her. I could sense my siblings also looking at her arms. I felt Bella turn around and heard her gasp as she saw Carrie’s arms. The other one was just as bad. It was scars upon scars, spotted with burn marks of various shapes and sizes. “Carrie, how did you get those marks on your arms?” Bella asked. She seemed close to going into hysterics. “I’m clumsy and accidents happen.” Carrie replied while still trying to get out of my grasp. I continued to turn her arms over, studying all of the marks. “Your arms are practically covered in scars and burn marks though,” Rosalie stated while leaning closer to get a better look. “Yeah well, I’m pretty clumsy.” she stated. I let go of one arm and reached up to pull up one sleeve to see how high it goes and how it looks. “Carrie, get back to work. I don’t pay you to socialize.” I heard Megan yell. That reminded me of where we were and I let go of her. I watched as she walked away, slightly flustered and gripping her arms and got back to work. I was really angry at what I saw and that was increasing my thirst. “Did you see her arms? If that isn’t proof, I don’t know what is.” Emmett said his usually loud boisterous voice low with concern. “What’s going on?” asked Bella. Alice decided to fill her in. “I should tell Charlie.” “Don’t Bella, that could make things worse.” said Rosalie. “But it could help” Bella pleaded. “We’re not completely sure about that,” I said. I turned toward her and continued, “Don’t do any thing Bella, and don’t say anything. We are going to do what we can.” With that we all left. Carlisle asked about today and we told him and Esme what we found out. Afterwards my siblings and I went out on a long hunt. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE REVIEW.
