The Evil Monster!
By Nicole D. Florer
I awoke to the sun shining on my face as the birds fluttered by my window. To bright of a morning for me, but on the good side maybe I could convince Chris to take me for a ride. Someone knocked quietly on my door.
Chris walked in as he opened the door.
"Good morning Bella. Did you sleep well?"
"Yes, I did. How about you?"
Chris hesitated for a minute.
"Fine...Bella I heard something last night about you."
Uh oh. What could he have possibly heard? And from who??
"What did you hear Chris? Was it good or bad?"
"I don't know if it was good or bad. You tell me."
A moment of silence passed between us.
"Bella what did you do last night after I went to bed?"
"I talked to Carlisle and went for a walk. Why?"
Chris nodded his head in understanding.
"Who took you for a walk?"
"I went with Edward. Carlisle suggested it and since everyone else but Edward was busy...It only made sense. Why?"
"No reason just trying to figure something out. Just out of curiosity what did you talk to Carlisle about?"
Great. It's 20 questions. Why does this all matter? I just don't get it.
"Carlisle asked me about something. Nothing big.....Why does it all matter?"
"Isabella. What did you talk about? I have every right to know."
"Okay. Okay. Yesterday when Carlisle and Esme came to get us. When you were talking to him and he said 'Don't worry about it. It could've been worse, you could have hurt your sister by transforming'. I muttered something under my breath."
"What did you say?"
"One simple word. 'Again'. Carlisle took notice to what I said, and he saw when my hand unconsciously go to the scar on my arm where you bit me."
"Oh okay. Bella I know that you don't like being interrorgated but what exactly happend last night when you went on the walk with Edward?"
"We were walking and Edward suddenly tensed. Something was coming closer to us, I asked Edward what it was and he said it was Jacob. Apparently Jacob is going to come after us. We just have to figure out why before he finds us."
Chris looked at me dumbfound.
"Ed-Edw-Edward saved you from Jacob?"
I blushed slightly at this comment. If only he knew what Alice saw happening, though it didn't it could've.
"Yes. And I appreciate it."
Chris looked thoughtful for a few minutes.
"Looks like I judged these people wrong. I automatically thought that all Vampires were the same bloodsucking jerks. I guess in this case I was the jerk. Wow I feel like an as-"
Someone was knocking on my bedroom door.
"Christopher watch your mouth. They can hear you. Come in."
The door opened and Alice and Edward came in.
"Goodmorning you two. How are you today?"
They said in union.
"All boys out, time for the girls to get up and dressed."
"Ummm...I don't even want to know Bells. Good luck with her."
Chris leaned in and gave me a goodmorning kiss.
"Thanks Chris. See ya later?"
It was more like a question than a statement.
With that the boys left the room.
"BELLA!! We are going to have soo much fun!"
The look on Alices' face was beggining to scare me.
"Alice what are we doing this morning?"
"Well first we are getting you all dressed up, then you are going to meet the rest of the family since you only know Edward and me...well besides Carlisle and Esme."
Was all I said. This was going to be a long day.
After I got up and dressed in the clothes that Alice picked out for me. We headed down stairs to meet the rest of the family. Alice then proceed to introduce everyone. She pointed out couples. I noticed that the only one that wasn't in a relationship was Edward.
Edward! I thought. I like that name it has a nice ring to it. Chris who was sitting across the room watching my reaction suddenly stood up.
"Isabella I need to talk to you. Now."
He put more meaning on the word Now than any other. Great what did I do now. Chris almost never acts older than me. I nodded my head in understanding.
Chris lead me outside and into the forest.
"Bella climb on my back."
"I just want to be out of their hearing range."
When we finally got to a secluded spot he let me dowm. Once I was down Chris turned to face me. The look on his face told me I was in trouble.
"Bella. Something isn't right about you today. When Alice was introducing you to everyone and she pointed out the couples, I couldn't help but see something in your eyes when she said that Edward isn't in a relationship. What is going on there?"
Great now is the time for truth. I didn't want him knowing about Alices' vision.
I took a deep breath. Here goes nothing. I thought humoresly.
"Okay first you better promise that you won't get mad at me or anyone else."
"Okay. Alice see the future."
Chris stared shocked at me.
"Last night before I went for the walk Alice saw something. Something that might or might not happen."
"Okay what is this something?"
"Ummmm..........She saw Edward and me kissing."
I turned away waiting for what I knew was going to come. I knew he was going to get mad and yell. Heck he might even transform again.
"Bella, is that all?"
When Chris said this I turned shocked.
"Yeah. Your not mad?"
"Well no I am not. But you have to tell me something. Do you like him?"
Chris gave me a look of disbelief.
"Fine Chris geeze. Yes I like him. Are you happy now? You finally got to know what was going through my head."
Now I was mad. Chris looked at me in terror.
"Bella. Calm down."
I just took notice that I was shaking violently for the first time.
"Oh my God Chris. Please tell me this isn't happening."
"Ummm...Bella I think that it is."
"No.No.No. No! This can NOT be happening. You bit me years ago. This shouldn't happen now, if it were to happen anytime it would have been years ago. This is not happening."
Suddenly if felt as if I was breaking. I felt like I was going under water.
Chris shouted I could hardly hear him.
"Chris save me."
I wispered before I blacked out. The last sound that I heard was and Angels voice wispering in my ear.
"Shh.... Bella it will be okay. Your safe."
I realized that the voice didn't belong to my brother but to the man I loved. Even though I hardly knew him I still cared deeply for him.
Something him me fast. Memories clouded my mind, one in particular.
Chris was giving me a ride in his werewolf form and suddenly he stopped.
"Chris what's wrong?"
Chris started growling at something ahead of us. Suddenly something came out of the growth. Chris growled louder.
"Hello my dear Chris. How are you? I see you still take care of your little sister. How are we today Bella?"
I remembered this girl from somewhere. Then it hit me. This was Chris' ex-girlfriend, Natalie. What was she doing here. She died in a car accident years ago.
"What are you doing here Natalie you died two years ago."
"That's just it you weird girl. I am not dead, can't you see I am here right now standing here in front of you."
Natalie and I never got along. She always called me names behind my brothers back. I never told him though.
"So you faked your own death. Now who is weird?"
She laughed cruely.
"My aren't we stupid. Yes I faked my own death, but hey what can you do about it? You know I never really liked you Bella. Yet here we are talking like normal people. How odd. You fake your own death and then run away from everyone to keep them safe. Years later you run into the exact people you want to kill. How odd is my life as a witch."
I was shocked. Natalie was a witch, now I get it she wanted to kill us because she never really like me. So all had to pay.
"So you are here to kill us because you don't like me...the 'weird girl'? Well sorry to say but your not the only one here who can hurt people.'
"Are you talking about your dear brother here?"
"No. I'm not talking about my brother."
Natalie looked shocked. Now who looks stupid.
She looked at me with terror in her eyes.
"Now you understand. Your not the only witch here."
Natalie ran away in terror, but not before she threw an amulate at my chest. It collided with my chest and I fell to the ground with a growl of pain.
Chris transformed back into his human form.
"Bella are you okay?"
I was struggling to breath. The amulate was causing my chest to constrict.
"Ch-r-is, ge-t the neck-lac-e o-ff m-y che-st!"
I managed to scream at him. Hurt flashed across his features for a moment. Then he got that amulate off of my chest. He had a calculating look on his face for a moment. He looked at me as he slowly put the amulate back on my chest. I winced in pain. He suddenly got that the amulate was causing me pain and threw it across the ground.
"Are you okay Bells?"
"Yeah I'm fine."
"Bella what just happened? Why did that little necklace hurt you so much?"
Well time for show and tell.
"Chris there is something that you don't know about me. I'm a witch, I have witch blood running through my veins. That necklace hurt me because it was filled with pure evil. Evil and goodness collide and cause a huge amount of pain towards each other. There are reasons that Natalie never liked me, and there are reasons that I never told you that she hated me."
Chris was taking this quiet well, considering the fact that his supposed dead ex-girlfriend just turned up and hurt me.
"What are those reasons?"
"The reason that Natalie never liked me was the fact that she felt threatened by me. As for why I never told you she didn't like me was because if I did it would be more possible that she figured out that I am a witch. If she were to figure it out sooner than there would be hell to pay."
"What do you mean there would be hell to pay?"
"There is a fight between good and evil that has been going on for centuries. Natalie is evil, as you should know I am good. If she were to find out sooner than we would have to fight and considering the fact that neither one of us were trained we would have fought to the death and most likely we would have taken anyone around us with us in death."
I laughed at him.
"You just found out that your sister is a witch and your ex-girlfriend is one two and the fact that they are meant to kill each other and all you can say is oh. Lord above you are funny. But that is why I love you! Thank you for not freaking out about this and you have to promise that you won't tell anyone anything about this. Okay?"
"Okay! Lets head back home."
So I climbed on his back and we ran home.
I awoke with a start. Why now of all times did I remember about Natalie?
"Isabella. Are you okay? You look paler than usual.?
Chris was by my side when I didn't answer immediatly.
"Bells what's wrong?"
All I could say was one simple word.
Chris' face turned for worry to horror.
"What about Natalie?"
"I think she had something to do with Jacob suddenly turning evil and Charlies death."
Chris looked at me in suprise. It was clear he was worried about Natalie returning. And how she played in Charlies death.
"Bella, that's impossible. We haven't seen her in years. She can't be back."
"It's not impossible Christopher. You know as well as I do that she can return at any moment. Jacob was never evil, well he sort of was but never evil enough to kill a human being. You know that as well as I do."
"But how does this all connect with Natalie?"
"When I passed out or what ever there were alot of memories floating through my head. One stuck out the most..the one of you and me meeting Natalie in the forest after she supposely died. Something made me think, Jacob was good friends with Natalie. She could've influenced him to do what he did. That's a power we have, a gift if you will. We influence animals. I haven't used it in a long time but, I could. I get the vibe off of Jacob like I got the vibe off of Natalie. They were one in the same. Does it make sense now?"
"Yeah it does. Sorry I doubted you. By the way what 'vibes' do you get off of the Cullens?"
I stared at him in confusion, then it hit me I promised to tell him what vibe I got off of the Cullens.
"Oh yeah. Carlisle has a calm and controled vibe, like he is sure he can control himself. Esme has a loving, caring vibe, like only a mother can have. She also knows she can stay in control. Emmette has a self assured vibe, like he can take on anything that comes his way and win. Also in control. Rosalie has a I'm so important vibe, like the world revolves around her. In control of her thirst but not her temper. Alice is unique, I would suggest to never bet against her if I were you. She is very controled around humans. Jasper...He is unique as well. He has more trouble controling his thirst but he is also very strong in a way. He helps keep everyone else in control. And finally the one you want to know the most. Edward. Edward is very wise for how young he looks. He is almost as controled as Carlisle. His vibe is really good. Different than most. He is lonely and misses him humanity. He thinks that he has no soul, and that he is eternally damned. Happy now you know!"
"Why yes little sister. Thank you so much. You know.... I know that you like him and all but please be careful. I don't want you to get hurt. You know I just watch out for you and I don't want you to hate me for it."
"Don't worry Chris I could never hate you. I appreciate you watching out for me. I will be careful, I promise."
Chris was frowning for a minute or two.
"Chris what's wrong? What is making you frown so much?"
"Bella, I don't know. It feels like I am mad but I have no Idea at what. I also have this feeling like someone is trying to read my mind. I'm trying to block them because I don't know who it is."
"Oh..Umm, Chris I'm gonna be right back. I need to talk to Jasper and Edward."
"Why? Is there something you know that I don't?"
"I don't know you would have to ask Carlisle"
With that I left the room in search of Jasper and Edward. They were sitting in the living room.
"Jasper if you are messing with Chris' emotions you really need to stop. He doesn't know about your power and he doesn't like his emotions under someone elses' control. As for you Edward do us all a favor and stay out of his head. If you want to know something that I say just ask. Stop reliving the memories in Chris' mind. I don't want you knowing everything about out past, there is so much that could end up hurting you all."
Jasper seemed to understand that people need control of themselves. Edward on the other hand didn't. I could see it written clearly on his face. He was about to voice it when I was called to the top of the stairs by Chris.
I asked running to figure out what is wrong.
"Those feeling stopped. I don't feel the ruffeling or anything else. I feel normal again."
I laughed at that.
"Christopher Daniel Swan you are anything but normal. It's good that those feelings stopped. I guess it was just your imagination."
"Yeah we could go with that. And as for normal you aren't either."
I playfully punched him. He fell backwards with a burn mark on his chest where I hit him.
"I know Chris. I'm sorry. I should go outside. Care to join me?"
"I don't know Bells. I don't want you to lose control in front of me. I don't think that it would be a good idea. She has to be close."
"I know. I'll be back. Hopefully she is far enough out where the Cullens won't hear."
"Be safe Isabella. Come back soon, I'm going to go change."
I nodded my head saying I heard him. With that I left. Once outside I ran towards the one person that can make me lose control. I knew that Chris would get worried if I wasn't back in a couple hours.
I love my brother to death. I wish him the best. I stopped running in the middle of a beautiful meadow. Standing in the middle was Natalie and Jake.
Great! Just what I need, a two on one fight! :(
"So you brought backup? Afraid you might lose? Are you the all mighty Natalie scared of me the newbie? Aww..so sad."
"You wish. No Jacob is here incase your dear brother came. Since he didn't Jake will just watch."
"Nice. Shall we begin, you stupid pathetic loser?"
"Oh mad I see. Bella you know that you lose your control if your mad."
"You know that you lose yours as well."
I laughed harshly. With that we began the fight. She shot fire at me as I ran and hit her with water. We both used our minds to harm each other. I shot her with the meanest shot of pain I could. She crumbled to the ground in pain.
She was damanged and couldn't move. But she could still send messages in her mind.
You Isabella are dead. Jake now!
Jacob attacked me from behind. I didn't move fast enough to avoid his attack. He managed to tackle me to the ground. As soon as he realized that he had me he fought with vengence. Ripping and scratching me anywhere he could. I was losing control quickly, before I lost it completely I shot him with a shot of pain like I did Natalie. He fell back unconcious. I turned back to Natalie and saw she was gone. Jacob dissappeared seconds later.
I fell to the ground in pain and managed to call Chris through our mental abilities. I sent him a picture of where I was with the words. Chris please come get me. I don't have enough power to transport back. Hurry.
With that I fell into unconciousness, hoping that Chris would hurry up. The last thing I remember before I met the dark was someone lifting me away from the meadow.
