1. Meeting (EPOV)

I could feel the softness of the leaves as I stepped on them running at full speed, the leaves where a healthy green this time of the year and everything looked just like one big green blur to me. Of course, I never hit one tree nor accidentally stomp a creature, running was in my nature it was so easy and the sense of release it gave me had no comparison. It was the feeling of leaving everything behind; going at such a speed that nothing could catch up with me not even my past. To be honest, today I was running from my family. I was trying to give them the privacy they deserve at such intimate moments that I’ve never experienced and probably never would I thought wryly to myself. You have to me mated to know how they felt, that total love and devotion towards each other. I truly felt like an outsider in my family, a third wheel or in this case a seventh wheel, what mattered was that I could be spared. I knew how much they loved me, how much I would hurt them if I ever went away again but, what could I do? I was always ill-tempered and belligerent like the resentful old man that I should be by now. I could hear Carlisle and Esme always blaming themselves, in their heads it was their fault that I was alone and miserable but truly I was alone by choice. It was not a problem of nurturing, they shouldn’t be kicking themselves like that, it was agonizing to hear how they dwelled in pain over their first son. Many vampires had expressed interest in me over the years but I would always politely turn them down, they weren’t what I was looking for. I’ve seen it with Rose and Carlisle, when the one came along I’d know right away. It was just how it worked with us vampires; you fell in love head over heels just once and there is no turning back. That was how I knew the girls I turned down would be okay, because I was not the one for them and they were not the ones for me, neither one of them. I’m too good of a liar if I can convince myself that is the only reason I turned them down, it was true that I wanted neither of those girls but I can’t deny that for me I was a monster. I didn’t deserve to be happy after everything I’ve done, I was a low life creature who could never aspire to be love. Everyday the list was there, I may have come back to Carlisle and his way of life but I could never bring back all those people. Even if my victims were barely humans and resemble more to monsters, it was wrong playing god and I had deluded myself into thinking it was right. Emmet keeps telling me to stop beating myself up but I can’t, during those dark years I lost myself and gave completely in to the monster inside of me.

I was lost in my train of thought when I saw her, the wind was blowing her scent in the opposite direction and that’s why I hadn’t smelled her. I froze there standing completely still, a human girl was standing in the middle of my meadow. She stared at me with her head cocked to the side and her eyed reflected confusion like something about me was off. I was too staring at her, she had very pale skin for a human, her straight brown hair cascade down her back gracefully curling at the ends and her frame was slender. She was quite a sight but I couldn’t take my eyes of hers, those oddly deep brown eyes like pools of melted chocolate pierced through me with their bewilderedness. I was pinned to that place, I just stood there examining her face and I couldn’t make myself leave. I was suddenly anxious to know what she was thinking, did she saw me coming at an inhuman speed to the meadow? Why did she seem so confused? Was she afraid of me? What did she think of me? What was she thinking? That’s when it hit me, I hadn’t been interrupted by any thoughts when running or even now as I was staring at her, the only train of thought in my head was my own. I felt really vulnerable and frustrated for the first time in my vampire life. I never had to try to hear someone so I felt ridiculous as I penetrated her eyes extremely focus giving her an intense gaze of my own. I was pushing with all my mental strength an imaginary barrier over her head but nothing. I couldn’t hear even one word, not even the tenor of her thoughts, this was just exasperating. Who was this girl?


2. Eyes (EPOV)

The frustration was pouring through me, I was still looking but not really seeing the girl lost in my mind. Could vampires get sick? I felt fine, like I always do, so why can’t I hear her? This has never happened to me before. I heard her let out an angry sighed and forced myself to see her again. She too seemed really frustrated and I didn’t understand why, suddenly I found myself imagining what she was thinking. Every guess seemed worst and less likely than the one before. I took one unconscious step in her direction and her eyes narrowed in suspicion. I glanced at her, clearly she knew I was dangerous. One second was all it took to change everything, the wind blew her scent in my direction and I smelled her for the first time. My throat was burning hotter than the flames in hell, my whole body ached to attack her and my mouth was singing with the venom. I’ve never imagine such a scent existed, if I knew I would have search the entire planet for it. No! I was better now, I couldn’t do this to Carlisle, destroy everything he had work so hard on and let him down again, that was not an option! I knew he would understand, his patience was endless but the thought of my eyes turning crimson with her blood and adding another name to the list had me running away from her. I was the fastest in my family and suddenly I felt like I was about to break a personal record or something. I only stopped when I reached the mountains, there was a valley that I liked to go to when it was autumn as the meadow was dry and lifeless.

I sighed, everything is going to be alright, everything is going to be alright she’s not here; I chanted this over and over again to myself. I sat there and grasp the grass, don’t turn around and look for her, think of your family. This was so hard, I could still remember vividly her smell in my tongue. I didn’t dare to move, my body could betray me and run after her. I closed my eyes but all I could see was the girl staring at me with her bewildered eyes, there was a spark of recognition there hidden; but recognition of what? Wondering what she was thinking was pushing me to the edge, I wanted to run back to talk to her and figure out her mind. What was she thinking? The question was torturing me, my curiosity was inflamed. A nagging puzzle that I would never get the chance to put together. Ug! This was impossible, I could smell her and hear her heart pounding in front of me. I thought it was just my imagination, no human would be able to get here that fast! I opened my eyes and there she was, standing in front of me with here arms secured around her chest and her expression was still frustrated but resigned. I sat there hypnotize by her gaze, she walked with slow but determined movements in my direction. I cut the flow of oxygen to my lungs, I didn’t need it and I knew it would be unbearable for me to smell her and not sink my teeth in her. She kneeled before me, from the first second I saw her she has pierce into my eyes never looking away from them. The girl lifted her hand and stroked my cheek gently with her finger tips, her eyes never leaving mine, it felt like an electric current pulsed between us when she touched me. She exhaled heavily and her warm breath brushed my face almost caressing it while she dropped her hand.

“I give up”. She finally spoke, her voice was so beautiful, not in an inhuman way like a vampire but it was sweet, warm and soft. “Would you please tell me why your eyes are gold?” I was lost in the sound of her voice, it took me about five seconds to process what she was asking and another to realize she was waiting for me to speak.

“I don’t understand your question” I hated to say that aloud, how I wished I could understand what was going on behind those chocolate brown eyes.

“I was sent here for a coven of vampires but something is off. Your skin is pale, hard and cold; you’re breathtaking beautiful and run inhumanly fast. But your eyes… they are supposed to be either black or crimson. So would you explain to me why your eyes are golden?” She seemed even more frustrated to say it aloud. I couldn’t answer her I was in shocked. She knew.

This is chapter 3! I hope you enjoy this and the next chapter is coming along great! I want to take a minute to thank you all for your kind comments, without them I wouldn't find the strenght to continue this


3. Explanations (EPOV)

I was frozen there, a living stone if I was even alive. I was unable to wrap my thoughts around it, it just didn’t make sense. She could have let it out in a gentler manner, give me a hint or something. She waited there without moving an inch just expecting my answer, I couldn’t find my voice. I inhale deeply trying to calm myself and I winced, I had forgotten about her allure. I looked at her and she understood.

“Sorry, with the mystery of your eyes I had forgotten that it’s difficult for you to stay this close to me.” She closed her eyes in concentration and let out a sight of relief. “There, is that better?”

I inhale hesitantly…nothing. I could smell nothing. If it weren’t for her heart beat and the fact that I was seen her with my own eyes I would have swore she was not here.

“Much better” I breathed, relief bleeding through me. “How did you do that?”

“It doesn’t work that way, I’ve ask you a question first it’s only fair you answered it” She was speaking without fear, just really annoyed and with a hint of chagrin in her tone. To say I was amazed was an understatement, she sat right in front of me with a beating heart that pump the most deliciously appealing blood I have ever smelled or dare to dream about knowing what I was and all she felt was hugely irritated that I dodged her question. I was grateful that she was now hiding her scent somehow but I could still remember it accurately and she was in serious danger staying this close to me. I knew that the best option for her was for me to runaway but I couldn’t leave, just thinking about it had me aching and besides I had no guarantees that she wouldn’t follow me again. And I had this girl here willingly with me even if it was just to satisfy her morbid curiosity, she was seeking answer as was I.

“I’ll answer you if…” I looked up, she raise her eyebrows in disbelief.

“If?” She was upset about me putting conditions, I wasn’t able to read her mind but her face and eyes where like open books.

“If you promise to answer all of my questions afterwards” I felt a little smug as she considered it, evidently she was uncomfortable with it but really, what other option did she have?

“Fine” She spat out. “I’ll answer all your questions as long as you answer all of mine” A smile was making its way in my face, but one glance at her face and I knew she was not a person to joke with at least not right now. Right now? Was I considering ever seen her again? Was I expecting a new opportunity to tease her?

“Name” She pulled me out of my reverie.

“Excuse me?” She rolled her chocolate eyes at me.

“What’s your name?” I was baffled at why this should concern her but decided to answer anyway.

“Edward, Edward Cullen. What’s yours?”

“Isabella Marie Swan, but everyone calls me Bella.”

“Nice to meet you Bella” I said it in a playful tone and I could see a hint of a smile in her face. I liked saying her name, ummm, I wonder why though.

“Well, now that we’re past that now. Are you a vampire yes or no?” Wow, she was straight forward, didn’t beat around the bushes. Obviously she was used to getting what she wanted right away, I understood that. I mean how can anyone deny anything to such a beautiful, observant, intriguing… I caught myself there, I should have never thought such things. Even if I felt this pulled towards her I couldn’t act on it, I didn’t understand it and it was neither safe nor fair for her. I inhale deeply to steady myself before replying to her simple question.

“Yes” Could she sense the acid in my voice? The hate I had for the monster in me? She seemed sad, why would she feel like that?

“You don’t want to be a vampire, you hate yourself” It wasn’t really a question, it was a statement but I decided to answer nevertheless.

“Yes, I hate been a monster and I’m not proud of many things I’ve done” She looked even gloomier than before and there was a hint of sympathy in her eyes. But I must be wrong, how can someone so pure and gentle sympathize with an inhuman murderer like me? The answer was simple, she couldn’t. She should be disgusted and afraid but when I looked at her I didn’t see any trace of the emotions I would have expected, all I saw was sadness and understanding.

“Why are your eyes golden?” Her voice was tender, lullaby like. I wanted to believe that she was trying to comfort me with her tone, even as I was baffled as why she would try to bring me peace.

“Me and my family are vegetarians” She cocked her head to the side in exactly the same way she had done in the meadow. She didn’t understand our inside joke and how could she? Her eyes were filled with questions and expectancy so I decided to answer her more fully. “We only drink animal blood, that’s why we consider ourselves vegetarians. Vampires who feed in the traditional way have red eyes as you are already aware and due to our special diet our eyes are golden” Bella looked at me like I’ve spoken in Chinese to her; I could see her twisting the idea in her mind over and over again till it made sense.

“You can do that?” She was suddenly excited and appeared hopeful for some reason. I wanted to know the reason she felt that way, impatience was trying to get the best out of me but I had to focus on the task at hand.

“Yes, Carlisle, my father, was the first and has live on the blood of animals for centuries now. It’s not the same but you remain strong” She was all lit up, this idea pleased her exceedingly.

“You said family, how many are you? Are there any more other than your family?” I was really confused, why did it matter? Well, we had a deal and soon I’ll be the one getting answers. That flooded me with happiness, the single idea of unrevealing the smallest portion of this mystery had my tingling with excitement.

“We are seven. My mother is Esme and is Carlisle’s mate. Then there are my siblings, Rosalie, Emmett, Alice and Jasper. There are others like us in Denali, we consider them our extended family, they are five in total. Tanya, Irina, Kate, Eleazar and Carmen.” She was twitching her hands nervously, she hesitated before her next question.

“Are their anymore in your family apart from Esme and Carlisle that are mated?” Another strange question, I didn’t get where she was trying to go. I looked at her and she was shyly staring at the ground with a beautiful mouth watering blushed coloring her face, I noticed that I was unconsciously leaning her way and I had to stop myself. I was struggling to remain where I was, I didn’t see any harm in her innocent inquisition and as long as I’m been truthful…

“Yes. Alice is Jasper mate and Rosalie is Emmett’s. In Denali Eleazar and Carmen are mates, the others are single”

“Is it difficult to be the only one in your family that’s not mated?” I had been concentrating at everything but her face during our conversation, I got a peek now and then but this was the first time since we started talking that I stared into her eyes. She was much more relaxed now and again I tried uselessly to ‘hear’ something from her, I wanted to know the why’s behind every one of her disconcerting gestures and the reasoning for her odd questions. I sighed frustrated and defeated, I’ll just continue to answer her and hope that she doesn’t edit when it’s her time to take the spotlight.

“Yes, just before I met you I was going away from the house to give them some privacy” I’ve lately spend too many ours away from home, I know my family thinks they’re driving me out with their displays of affection and even as it’s sort of truth it was my own decision. I didn’t want to spoil their mood or interfere, it was more than enough that I couldn’t grant them privacy while been in the same place but on top of that my loneliness and depression makes them feel further uncomfortable.

“Because of the vampire super sensitive senses?” Her sweet voice dragged me out of my bubble of thoughts, she was unsure and guessing trying to see if she was wrong. I was amused, she probably knew we could have special gifts and that is where her doubt lies.

“Partly” I smiled warmly, I could omit the fact that I can read minds but suddenly I had this urge, I wanted her to know me. What a ridiculous desire to have!
“But mainly because of my gift” I glance up at her, her curiosity was bleeding from her eyes and I laughed gently at the thought that that was probably the way I looked a few minutes ago. “I can read minds, I know everything a person is thinking at the moment” I could tell she didn’t like that at all so I hurry to calm her. “I can hear everyone except you” She smiled widely at me flashing her white teeth. I couldn’t help but smile back.

“Really?”

“Really”

“Has this happen before?”

“No, you are the first” Why did it have to be her? Someone who knew too much? Someone that brought strange desires to the surface? Someone who elevated my curiosity to a new level? Frustrating. Her grin was smug and I just had to know everything about her. I’ve waited long enough and pushed my patience to the limit. “Well, I’ve answer all your questions. Now it’s my turn” She seemed reluctant, she was biting her bottom lip nervously. Bella was afraid of telling me her story, why would she be? She wasn’t a monster. “Are you going to answer my questions? I kept my side of the deal”.

She sighed “What do you want to know?”
