The War of the Worlds
[banner removed by admin, please keep banners within 300px by 150 px] I wish I could tell you that the world is a wonderful to live in…but I’d be lying. Unless you think living in a world where the Vampires are at war with the Werewolves. Not many humans are living free, never mind living a wonderful life. Those who don’t live locked up under vampire rule are either hiding or are in the resistance. My name is Isabella Swan and I am a human.

The World at War
"Edward?" I asked as I felt around the bed for him, but came up empty.
"He's at the mine Mistress, there is nothing to worry about. What would you like to do first eat or shower?" Jessica coolly asked.
"I think I need to be alone right now," it was all I could do not to start crying in front of them.
"But…," I really didn't care what Angela was going to say, I just wanted to cry alone.
"GET OUT!" I screamed as I ran into the bathroom and locked the door behind me.
I barely climbed into the shower before the tears started freely flowing. My heart was breaking into a million pieces and there was nothing I could do about it. Feeling helpless to stop the crushing feeling that had engulfed me; I crumbed to the floor of the shower and just let misery overtake me.
Time meant nothing to me, so I guess it was no surprise when the water that was beating against my clothed body turned cold as ice. I wish I could say I cared, but I did not. By the time Edward came through the door, I was curled in a tight ball shaking and sobbing in the corner.
"Shhh, I am here now, shhh tell me what's wrong," he said as he picked me up and rocked me.
I couldn't stop myself when I blurted out "You left me, you don't want me!"
"I never left you, I went to work - and you're wrong, I do want you, more than anything else in this world. You are my world now, I would give you anything," I was overjoyed when he said this before he started kissing me.
I really wanted to believe he wanted me, but was it possible that someone who looked like they walk out of Greek mythology really wanted a mere human like me? At that moment, I didn't care if he might only want me one time, I'd willing accept one time of bliss with him for a lifetime of loneliness.
When he turned up the heat of our kiss by plunging his tongue deeply into my awaiting mouth, I could swear I felt love, passion and desperation in it. It wasn't even scary when his kissing crusade of my neck paused and he breathed in deeply. I was hopelessly in love with him and would happily give him anything he wanted.
I tried not to shake when I moved my hands from his bronze locks to his shirt - I failed miserably. It was all I could do not to gasp when he ripped off his shirt and grant me total access to his chiseled, rock hard chest.
I would swear my heart was dancing with delight as he took hold of my dress strap and slid it off my shoulder. The moment my bare breast touched his electric skin, I wanted nothing more than to have the dress gone from my body.
I don't know if it was too much for him, but at that exact moment he pulled my face to his chest and just stood there panting with me. I kept my eyes closed so he would not see I was missing the kissing already.
It was amazing feeling him shiver every time I panted, but it made me wonder why? When I slide my eyes open I found the reason, I was breathing onto his hardened nipple. Moving on its own accord, my tongue darted out and lightly licked the pebbled surface. It tasted better than any food I have ever eaten and I hungrily sucked it into to my mouth to continue the tongue message I had started. With each circle, I lick around his nipple I was returned with a moan.
I was not thrilled by having to leave before Isabella woke up this morning, after all it was her first morning here, especially after last night interruptions. There was an issue at the mine that needed my attention. I also had wanted to introduce her to the family that she was now a part, but that would have to wait until I returned. I had made sure her attendants were there for all her needs.
I felt confident that Angela would always see to that, but I was not so positive about Jessica. Jessica was one of the humans we bought as a possible mate for me, but I never wanted her. Thankfully, the problem was solved fairly quickly giving me hope that I might still be back before Isabella woke. That hope was quickly dashed when my phone went off.
"Edward, I think you need to come home NOW. Isabella didn't wake up very well, she's locked in the bathroom and her feelings are a mess," I could feel my chest constricting by his words.
"I am on my way!"
Even running at full speed it took ten minutes to get back to the house. I was both furious and worried at the same time. Furious because this should have never happened and worried because I had no idea what sort of damage my absence had caused. It took every ounce of my control not to lash out at everyone in the house, especially her attendants.
"What happened? Your instructions were clear, she was to be kept happy," I could not keep all my anger at bay; some of it was slipping through.
"I'm so sorry Mister Edward, she called out for you and when you weren't available, she screamed for us to leave and locked herself away in the bathroom. She's been in there crying for an hour."
"OUT! NOW!" You would have thought with two attendants, one of them could have handled the task of keeping her happy until I got back.
However, maybe that was the problem, they did not have what was needed to keep her happy - Me. Maybe I was the one thing she needed to be happy or maybe it was regret.
Could she be regretting kissing me last night? I was going to find out even if meant her breaking my dead heart; I had to know what was going on in her head and heart.
I hope she didn't think locking the door would keep me out. Honestly, the lock gave the moment I turned the knob.
It tore up my insides when I looked into the shower and she was curled up into a ball still crying. After I shut off the water, I scooped her up and cradled her close; her skin was so cold even to my touch.
"Shhh, I am here now, shhh tell me what's wrong," I rocked her gently against my chest.
"You left me, you don't want me," So, it was missing me that set off her emotions. I think my heart sprouted wings because it was attempting to fly.
"I never left you, I went to work and you're wrong I do want you, more than anything else in this world. You are my world now, I would give you anything," and to prove I meant it I eagerly sought out her beautiful mouth and started peppering her with soft sweet kisses.
I don't know how it happened, but one minute I was kissing her sweetly and the next I was pouring every ounce of love I had for her into a very heated kiss. The moment I plunged my tongue in between her perfect lips I was undone, I would give her anything she wanted.
With shaking hands she tried to unbutton my shirt while I slipped her back down onto her tiny feet, when I didn't have the patience to wait anymore I tore my shirt off for her. Feeling her hands running across my chest set my manhood on fire. I wanted her now, but there was still the issue that her soaked dress was in my way.
Kissing my way down her neck, I could not help but stop and smell her marvelous bouquet before moving on to her shoulder. Hooking on to the spaghetti strap with my finger, I dragged it off her shoulder to give me unhindered access.
Feeling her now exposed breast against my skin made me shiver with delight, it took all my will power to stop kissing her and pull her head to my chest. I thought I would spontaneously combust every time she breathed on my now hard nipple. She caught me totally off guard when she softly licked my already stimulated nipple and by the time she suck it into her warm mouth all I wanted to do was return the favor. Just the thought of suckling on one her breasts had me aroused to epic proportions.
"Edward! We're tired of waiting to meet our new family member!" Alice's thoughts rudely interrupted my enjoyment.
"Alice! We're not ready yet!" I gritted back at the pixie.
"Well get ready or Emmett's going to drag you out in whatever current state you are in!"
"Isabella, we need to stop now or the family will physically drag us downstairs dressed or not." I said as I slipped her strap back into place.
"But what if they don't like me?" she whispered softly as she looked up at me through her long lashes.
"They won't like you - they will love you," this marvelous creature will never be unloved ever again.
"I'll be outside the door waiting for you to finish changing; I would suggest putting on something that won't take too long to get out of, because I am definitely not done with you yet." I purred into her ear. And that was a promise!
Outside the door, her attendants were waiting, I instructed them to go assist her in being presentable. Finally, Isabella swept out of our room looking breathtaking in her pink velvet wrap dress with matching pink flats. Then again, the woman could wear a potato sack and look ravishing.
It was a nerve wracking getting ready to meet the family. I could definitely hide in the bedroom for the rest of my life. I could not get over the fear that they might not like me; at least Edward would be by my side. After taking a soothing deep breathe, I went to join Edward in the hall and my heart melted the moment I locked eyes with him.
Up until that moment, I had avoided staring into his eyes, probably out of fear that he would be mad, but he just smiled sweetly at me. The minute he held out his hand to me I grabbed on tight and prayed I didn't fall down the stairs.
Everyone was waiting in the living room; I was flabbergasted looking at the décor. The room was absolutely huge with warm caramel colored walls, a fireplace complete with a fire, three cream colored couches and a square glass coffee table. It was definitely elegant, yet cozy. Seated on the couches was, I hoped, the entire family because there were six of them, not including Edward and myself. I recoiled behind Edward and peeked around his arm.
"Isabella, I would like to introduce you to Esme my mother and Carlisle's wife, you remember Carlisle of course,"
"Hello," it came out like a squeak.
"This is Alice and her mate Jasper, and over there is Rosalie and Emmett."
"Hey - come here and give us a hug!" Edward suddenly crouched, snarling and growling at everyone.
"Emmett back away from Edward now!" Alice ordered.
"Hey Edward, chill man. What's your problem?" he held his hands out to surrender.
"Emmett, you really need to back off, his emotions are all over the map," I probably should have been scared, but I wasn't, for some reason Edward never scared me.
"Edward son, please…you need to relax, I don't need your gift to see what's going on here. No one is going to take your Isabella away from you. She's yours and only yours. So, why don't you take her back upstairs and we'll see you later." This seemed to calm him slightly, but I giggled when he turned and threw me over his shoulder before sprinting back up the stairs.
"Okay - someone tell me what just happened," Emmett whined loudly.
"Emmett, Edward was about to take on the family in a fight to protect his claim on Isabella. They haven't sealed the deal yet, so he thinks all men are out to take her from him," I had seen it in time to warn them, it was not going to be pretty; Emmett and Isabella were not going to make it through it.
"I've never seen anyone do that before, I know Edward's overprotective, but that was beyond anything I have ever seen," Rosalie surmised.
"It has happened before…with me. I had waited to find Esme for over three hundred years and when I found her, I felt like everyone wanted to take her away from me. That's why I knew the moment I looked into his eyes he would kill for her if necessary."
"Vampires are naturally protective, why is this so different?" asked Emmett.
"Because he has waited over a century to find her and living in a family where everyone had a mate but him and coupled with the fact that Carlisle gave him no choice in finding her, its an imbedded fear that if Carlisle changed his mind he might lose her. Imagine being in his shoes, how would you react if you spent a hundred years looking for Rose. What would you do to make her yours? Who would you kill to keep her?" Jasper like Carlisle knew what it was like to wait so long for the one person to complete them.
"He won't be complete until he takes her as his own, then he will still be overprotective of her, but he won't be as aggressive. With time he will allow us near her, but until then, we should keep it to just us woman visiting," Esme said as she snuggled into Carlisle's embrace.
"Alice, how bad was the vision? Do we need to worry about Edward hurting Isabella?"
"No Emmett, she'll be fine now. If you had touched her, he would have ripped you apart and Isabella would have been killed in the fight, but it's changed now, in fact, we won't see them for the next two days," I didn't tell them the rest of what I saw; I wanted to keep it a surprise.
"Alice is right, as of right now - it's all I can do to keep the lust internally channeled that's rolling off both of them," when Jasper chuckled I knew I would be having an excellent evening, actually the whole house would and from the smiles on their faces, they knew it too.
