• I sighed. Dark and stormy clouds, yet again, filled the sky. Just the perfect weather to explain my mood.
    When you get caught in the rain with no where to run
    When you're distraught and in pain without anyone
    When you keep crying out to be saved
    But nobody comes and you feel so far away
    That you just can't find your way home
    You can get there alone
    It's okay, what you say is
    Suddenly thunder boomed in the distance, as if solders from the past were banging them, sounding the sound of war. Well, this was defiantly going to be war. I could see the streaks of lightning in the distance, accompanying the drumming sound. Stars. They were like stars, falling through the sky for everyone.

    Everyone but me…
    I can make it through the rain
    I can stand up once again on my own
    And I know that I'm strong enough to mend
    And every time I feel afraid I hold tighter to my faith
    And I live one more day and I make it through the rain
    And if you keep falling down don't you dare give in
    You will arise safe and sound, so
    keep pressing on steadfastly
    And you'll find what you need to prevail
    What you say is
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------Then, the cold lonely rain started to fall. Plitter plat. Soft at first, but soon gaining anger and increasing in size and pattern. Pretty soon nobody would be able to see through this thick curtain of cold water we call rain. As the rain increases, the number of people decreases. People, mortals, who are scurrying like little rats off of the street so they wont get sick or so they wont ‘melt’ as some people fear.
    I can make it through the rain
    I can stand up once again on my own
    And I know that I'm strong enough to mend
    And every time I feel afraid I hold tighter to my faith
    And I live one more day and I make it through the rain
    Pretty soon I’m the only one in the streets. Good, I like to keep it that way. I hate being bugged by this… this infestation of humans that had swarmed its way into more of this planet over the last decade. But they haven’t a clue of whom or what accompanies them in this cold, cruel world. No. They don’t even give a rip.

    One day, every one of these parasites, as they seem to me, look for something new. They find it. Say maybe an old, rich woman was found dead, drained of blood in her mansion. They treat it as a headline and it’s the buzz all over this small, filthy town. But gradually, their interest in the matter slips, and their goes the attention. Pretty soon the old woman is nothing but a distant memory.

    I sigh again. What’s the use in trying to criticize the kind of person I used to be? Nothing. It doesn’t change the fact that I’m a vampire. It doesn’t change the fact that I have been alone for a decade. It doesn’t change the fact that I was turned and left all alone. The place I once loved and thought was a place full of happy memories is now a place of sin and blood. Bad memories.
    And when the rain blows, as shadows
    grow close don't be afraid
    There's nothing you can't face
    And should they tell you you'll never pull through
    Don't hesitate, stand tall and say
    I stop walking. I don’t remember much. I only remember that I needed to hunt. I needed blood. But since there was nobody to teach me to be a vegetarian, I became a hunter. I hunted humans for, let’s say, about half the decade. Then I hunted animals. Humans as a desert, usually. I was proud of myself. Even though I was a newborn able to run amuck, I handled and controlled my thirst, and may I say, I cleaned up good.

    I still went to school, though. But only as a distraction to keep my protected mind from running wild and to keep from thoughts about them.

    Then it hit me. I smelled another vampire. No, wait, eight vampires to be persist. I turned around. My black cape swirling around me as I tried to sniff them all out. My long, brown hair sticking to my face, as my black spaghetti top stuck to my well fit upper body, and my black leather jeans and boots stuck to my lower body.

    “Easy. Were not going to hurt you.” A fine, smooth, silvery calm voice came from my right side. From the shadows. Damn. Just when I didn’t want to think about them.


    I heard a slight whispering. A younger male whispered to the vampire who had just spoken.

    “I can’t read her mind!” It was an urgent whisper I heard not to far from the doctor. I smirked.


    “Just stay calm, everyone.”

    “Very hard when I can’t even affect her mind!” Another whisper. But this one was new. A female who sounded about in her twenties. Huh, I guess it’s good that Edward couldn’t read my mind. He would have a headache via my now jumbled up mind which seemed to kick into overdrive at the next words.

    “I know who it is.”


    I could hear everyone else, though barely, move to face in her direction. Swirling around to face in her direction, my cape and hair gave way to more of my features. But nobody paid attention to me. All eyes, or so I could assume at this moment, was turned on Rosalie. Beautiful Rosalie.
    I can make it through the rain
    I can stand up once again on my own
    And I know that I'm strong enough to mend
    And every time I feel afraid I hold tighter to my faith
    And I live one more day and I make it through the rain
    I was starting to get pissed. Whatever they needed to get done, they better do it now. With a huff, I folded my arms over my chest and pouted like a little child. But nobody paid heed to me.

    “Who?” I heard a certain little pixie ask.


    “Yea, who?” Everyone else whispered, just loud enough for a vampire to pick up on the next block. I grunted. That’s when I felt their bodies shift in my direction.

    “What’s so funny?”


    Of course. He thought I was laughing at his wife. But just to be mean, I grunted again. This time, though, to make sure they knew I was weary.

    “Maybe we should bring her back to our house, right Edward?” If I could gag, I would have. A seductive tone with Edward!? Wow, the girl was out of her mind. I heard Rosalie gulp. Did she really want me to notice? So, I did what I thought was right. I extended my shield and spoke to her telapathicly.

    ‘Whatsup Rosalie? Miss me much?’

    ‘Everyone, except for Anya, the new girl, has missed you.’

    ‘Yea, what was up with that seductive voice when she said Edwards name?’

    ‘Oh, you caught that?’ She giggled nervously. I absolutely had to fight the nerve to slap her then. ‘She sort of has a crush on Edward and is all the time trying to get him into her bed.’

    ‘Should I, uh, have a talk with her?’ Rosalie laughed.

    ‘That’s up to you.’

    ‘I absolutely want to’

    ‘Great! Now you will solve everybody`s problem!’ I laughed. Wow. I actually laughed!

    ‘Your voice is wonderful, Bella. You look wonderful. I can’t believe that your features changed dramatically!’

    ‘Yea. Do you think Alice is proud? I wouldn’t want to have to go shopping.’ I shivered internally. I hate shopping.

    ‘I think that if you loose the black, she will be enthusiastic about seeing you again.’

    ‘Thanks Rose. Now come out and give me a big hug!’

    ‘That, I can do.’ I let my shield down when she was right in front of me, a soothing smile clear on her lips. Then, she actually did it. She embraced me. When the shock was through, I smiled myself and wrapped my arms around her, too, conscious of the rest of the family closing in on us, looking horrified. Then out of nowhere, Alice shrieked and rand into the little hug.

    “Bella!” I winced from the pain of her freakish squealing voice. When she nearly knocked Rosalie and I down joining in on the hug, Esme, probably having overcome the shock of Alice squealing my name at the top of her tiny voice, joined in, too and cried tearless sobs into my hair while clutching me protectively. Emmet, finally getting a grasp on what was happing, I presume, Ran at Inhuman speed and lifted all of us up in his arms, making everyone, but me of course, giggle while her repeated, no, sang, my name over and over again. I growled.

    Jasper was next. Well, actually he sent soothing waves to me to calm me down. Possibly trying to stop my growling. Then, when my growling finally got everyone off of me and I was back on my feet, her cautiously walked towards me and embraced me in a brotherly hug. I could practically feel the happiness radiating around me like the pitiful ball of sun that rarely makes my granite like skin sparkle. Suddenly, I was being hugged by Carslisle, too. Oh boy, I was being hugged by two men. I started to growl.

    Immediately they let go of me and backed away to hold their wives. I could feel the rained getting harder as it pounded on my already soaked body. I could see it making yet a thicker curtain around me as I glared at the new girl. After about a second of glaring at her, she shrank back. I smiled to myself. This was going to be an easy win. When she was in the shadows again, I turned my glare upon the last remaining Cullen. Edward. When I glared at him directly in the eyes, he winced, but didn’t give in.

    “I guess I deserve that.” He laughed nervously. And yet again, I felt the need to slap. I stayed silent and still, despite my migraine, via my head yelling at me to slap him, to kiss him, to hug him, to yell at him. To show him what it was like to be me. Then, Edward made a really bold move. He stood directly in front of me. “Please talk to me.” his voice was pleading and desperate. I decided to play a little joke. Alice wouldn’t see it, so what would be wrong about it? I looked around me. I could see the family`s desperate faces. But I ignored them.

    “Who, me?” I pointed a finger at my chest and had a shocked expression on my face. He nodded.

    “Yes you.”

    “But what do you want with me? I’m just a burden.” Edward shook his head.

    “No. No you’re not a burden.” He answered a little too roughly. As I tried to remember what he said so long ago in the forest not to far from my house, I could barely hear Alice Whisper to him to be careful. I was very irritable.

    “But you said so yourself. You said that you didn’t want me anymore.” I kept my face smooth and calm. The man in front of my looked like he could cry at any moment. His handsome features were disoriented and made him look a lot older. Then, I did something nobody expected. I slapped him. I slapped him good and hard across the face. “Then you left me in the forest where Victoria caught up with me!” I said angrily, causing everyone in the area to wince. The rain got harder and heavier.

    “I’m sorry, I really am, Bella!” He broke down into dry sobs, slowly falling towards the earth. The earth that’s was full of mortal and immortal leeches. I world I wished so desperately to escape. I sunk down to my knees and put my face to his. Then I whispered three words that I knew would cheer everyone.

    “Les just go home.” Edward grabbed me into a tight embrace and I knew then that I was already home. I was always home in his arms.
    I can make it through the rain
    and I live once again
    and I live one more day
    and I can make it through the rain
    (Yes you can)
    you will make it through the rain
