The Twilight Saga

Cassandra: A True Vegetarian

Cassandra: A True Talent

 


 

After many pleas that I continue my Cassandra adventures, I finally have started the third book!  THis is now an official trilogy, people! :-)  Thank you to Makrasha for your awesome ideas, I will totally use them later in the story.

PS: COPYRIGHT ALERT! COPYRIGHT ALERT!  Not all of these characters are mine, but Cassandra and Jack are, and I would appreciate it if nobody steal them.  If anyone wants to create stories similar to mine, please ask me first so it is not mistaken for PLAGIARISM.  Thanks a bunch.

CHAPTER 1
Everything was perfect. There wasn’t a flower petal out of place; Alice had really outdone herself.
“So, what do you think?” she asked excitedly.
“It’s awesome!” I laughed, staring at the scene in front of me with wide eyes. “I don’t know how you do it, Alice.”
“It’s a gift,” she replied smugly. “Now come on! The guests will be arriving soon, and I don’t want anyone to see you until you look absolutely fabulous!” She grabbed my wrist and began dragging me back towards the house.
“But what about Jack?” I whined, looking back at the setup longingly.
“Edward and Garrett are taking good care of him. You’ll just have to wait until he’s up at the altar.” Yes, Alice had insisted that we go by the human tradition of avoiding each other until it was time for the wedding. Well, she said she made Edward and Bella do it too, and if they could pull it off, I certainly could. Maybe.
“I look fine, Alice,” I said, struggling against her grasp to watch my beautiful wedding stage disappear into the trees.
“Yes, you do, but fine isn’t good enough. I still need to make a few finishing touches to your make-up. And watch out for the branches! I don’t want your dress to have any stains.” I sighed. Even vampire beauty wasn’t enough to keep Alice at bay; she still had to paint my face to perfection. I kind of agreed with the whole dress situation, though. We had spent hours looking for the perfect gown just before the Volturi had summoned us to Italy, and after all that, I wasn’t about to have it ruined.
“What was that smell?” I asked, my mind still set on what I had seen a moment before.
“It’s a mixture of orange blossoms, lilac, freesia, and roses,” she replied, shrugging. “I used it at Bella’s wedding, and since it was human-approved, I figured I should probably use it again.”
“Well I’m sure they’ll love it. Where did you get all the chairs? Surely they weren’t just lying around the house; there were hundreds of them!”
“That’s a Cullen Family secret.” She smiled and winked, and I rolled my eyes. She probably just stole them from some department store or something.
We wove our way around the trees for a few minutes before the house finally came into view. The Denali cottage was actually quite homey, and had a sort of camouflage-color that made it blend in with its surroundings. I was almost positive nobody knew it was there; at least, not until everyone from school was invited to my wedding. As embarrassing as it was to be engaged as a junior, I knew perfectly well that the inhuman bond between Jack and I was too strong to ignore. Besides, technically I was a freshman for life, so it wasn’t like I would ever be old enough to get married anyway.
We ran up into the bathroom as soon as we entered the house, and Alice immediately set to making me look ‘fabulous.’ Tanya came bounding up the stairs not long after, having heard the commotion.
“I’ll do her hair,” she offered. “I don’t think it should just be hanging down like that on her special day.” Alice smiled.
“I agree. Maybe you could braid it here and twist it around like this…” She wove her fingers around in my hair, showing Tanya how she thought it should look. Since I couldn’t sleep through it, I decided to daydream.
I thought about Jack, and that first time we’d met. He came as an outgoing stranger that every girl seemed to stare at from the very first day. Even some of the popular guys had asked him to hang out with them, but e turned down there offer. He was standing right next to me when it happened, and though he didn’t know me at all at the time, he still chose to hang around. I hadn’t realized how lucky I was in that moment, but I certainly appreciated it now. I thought about that first time seeing him after my transformation, how wretched I felt for lying to him about something as simple as my eye color, about how the car crash only caused ‘minor injuries’ instead of ‘it turned me into one of the undead.’ I thought about just a few weeks ago, when I had first come back from Italy. Jack had made me a wonderful picnic to celebrate my homecoming, and to explain that he had told my parents he was my fiancé. I had a nice time with him while it lasted, but it was a very awkward conversation when I finally got home. We had to go through all the topics like ‘are you sure you’re ready for this?’ and ‘don’t you think you’re too young for such a commitment?’ and ‘are you sure it isn’t because you’re pregnant?’ Wow.
“And… perfect! You are now officially done,” Alice chirped, patting my face one last time with whatever make-up utensil she was holding. I blinked in surprise.
“It’s time for the wedding?” I asked. I had really zoned out.
“Yes,” Tanya replied, rolling her eyes. “Thinking about Jack, I presume?”
“You presume correctly,” I retaliated smugly. “Come on, let’s go. Daydreaming is one thing, but I’m ready to see my real Jack, in the flesh.”
“Yeah, the stony, marble flesh,” Tanya laughed.
“Hey, don’t mock her!” Alice said. “It’s her wedding day. You’re right, Cassandra. Let’s go get you a husband!”

um, this is a trilogy. If you havent read the first two, you may want to. Otherwise this may not make much sense... :-) Just an idea.
this is awsome
Awwwwe!!! You mentioned my name!! <3

And YESH!!!! FINALLY!!!! WOOOOO!!!!! XD
yes, yes I did. :-) you were the only person who tried to give me any story suggestions (by the way, other readers, I'm still open to ideas) and they were good story suggestions. I may have twisted them slightly, but I woudn't have them at all if you hadn't thought of it. :-) I'm glad you like the story so far. sorry if it starts out a little slow, but the fourth chapter gets better...
I'm just so happy you continued the series!!! I friggin luv it!!! XD
Well I'm glad you like it :-) Here's the next chapter:
It's a little short, but oh well...
CHAPTER 2
How could so many people fit into such a small space?! The wedding area was packed with my friends, family, and pretty much everyone who went to my school, including the teachers! Alice was completely nuts.
“You’ll do great,” Tanya assured me, grabbing my wrist. “Your father is waiting for you just over here.” I looked through the trees, searching for the familiar gray tux. Sure enough, he was there, waiting patiently for me just outside the mob of humans.
“Hey, sweetie,” he said, kissing my cheek. “Are you ready? It’s not too late to back out.”
“Dad!” We had talked about this; there was nothing anyone could do that would make me abandon Jack.
“Okay, okay, just checking,” he grumbled, putting his arm through mine. He wasn’t very excited that I was getting married this early, but I knew deep, deep down inside he felt happy for me… sort of.
“Edward’s going to start playing soon,” Alice whispered. “Tanya, Kate and I will go out first. You know when your queue is right?” I nodded. “Great! And here comes Kate now, just in time.” My last vampire sister appeared from the trees in the beautiful pink gown that both my other bridesmaids were wearing.
“Let’s get this party started!” she trilled, giving me a big hug. “I’m so happy for you! Finally things are starting to work out for all of us.”
“Hey now, don’t jinx it,” my dad said, trying to subtly scoot away from my friend. Well, some things could never change.
“I wasn’t intending to,” she replied, giving him her big, rather unsettling smile. I felt him shiver.
Just then, the music I had specifically chosen for the occasion started to play, signaling that the ceremony was about to start. My two sisters and dear psychic friend wished me luck before dancing gracefully down the aisle. All too soon, they were gone, leaving me alone with my dad.
“Now listen here,” he said, stroking my back. “You know I don’t approve of this decision; you are way too young to go through this big a commitment. But I am happy for you, even if I don’t show it. I just hope you know what you’re doing, and understand the responsibility involved with marriage.”
“I know dad,” I said, trying to sound calm. “I can never even look at another boy ever again, nor would I want to. I’ll have to take care of the house, make my own money, and help raise any possible children.” I knew perfectly well I couldn’t have kids anymore, but that wasn’t exactly something I was at liberty to explain. “I’ll need to wash dishes, do my chores, shop for food, and find a good place where we can settle down. I know what I’m doing dad, and there’s no situation I would rather be in.” He sighed.
“I guess you’re just not a little kid anymore. I don’t know when, but somewhere along the road you must have grown up, and I almost missed it.”
“No sappy stuff, please dad,” I begged, hugging him as tightly as I dared. “I’m still your little girl; I’m just not all yours anymore.” He chuckled slightly.
“Yeah, I guess you’re right. Well, like Kate said, let’s get this show on the road.” As if on queue, a familiar little trill played in the music, and we began to walk down the aisle.
XD Post more soon, please!!! This is even better than the original Twilight stories!!! As I often say, I love this!!!!
I'm glad the people who read my stories have enjoyed them so far, but I'm getting the feeling that not many people are reading them... I would really appreciate it if you could recommend this story to your friends here, because I want to be a writer when I get older and I don't know how successful I'll be if people don't bother to read my work. Just sayin. I'd love to have a few more comments before I post the next chapter... sorry I have to resort to that, but I hardly get any comments, and frankly, I''m getting rather deflated because of it. Many sorries.
Calody
Already have. :)

I sent an e-mail out last night recommending it, but now I'm gonna post it on several other busy groups. I know what it's like. I've written around four or so stories on here. The first one I wrote really hit off, there was around five pages of comments within the first day of posting chapter one. Then the mods deleted it. The next two I posted I deleted because I had only gotten around three comments within the first week or so. Now I'm working on a fourth one and I have around five or so people reading, so I'm sticking to it. So don't give up, it's great!!! People will come around, you wait and see!! :)
thanks :-) I don't know how many people are reading my story right now, because not everyone comments, but I hope more people will soon. I've been trying to make a banner for this story too, but I'm having major failing issues with it... I'm gonna need someone else to do it. Well, from what goes on in my head, a good banner always helps publicity. :-)
Agreed. :)
okay, well, hopefully people will start commenting soon... For now, here's the next chapter.

CHAPTER 3
Everyone was staring at me, but for once I didn’t care. The moment I laid eyes on Jack, I lost all other train of thought. He was wearing a brilliant black tuxedo, with a blood-red rose sitting right over his stilled heart. His tie was a dark gray, much like my dad’s suit, and had a very complex-looking pattern to it, like leaves were weaving in and out of the fabric. His shoes were shiny and dapper, like the kind you could picture your grandparents wore on their wedding; he was astonishing.
Somehow I managed to keep the same slow, steady pace all the way down the aisle, and soon I was standing there at the altar with him. Of course Alice had hired a priest I’d never seen before to give us all the vows, but even the fact that I was standing next to a complete stranger couldn’t tear my gaze from my fiancé’s. His eyes were almost back to normal now, with just a tint of orange to stain the golden glow, and I was lost in their fiery depths. How had I gotten lucky enough to get my perfect soul mate so early in my life? I couldn’t imagine having to wait two extra years for this; I didn’t know what I was thinking all that time ago. Had it really only been just a few weeks?
“… as long as you both shall live?” the strange human asked me.
“I do,” I whispered.
“And do you, Jack, take this woman…” His voice faded from my mind as I watched the emotion on Jack’s face. He looked so happy, it was unbelievable. I didn’t know it was possible to smile that much.
“I do,” he said proudly, squeezing my hand. I giggled.
“Then, by the power vested in me, I now pronounce you man and wife.” The whole mob of humans and vampires alike erupted into a fit of cheers. My now-official husband pulled me close and kissed me, making the noise fade into the background once again. I was in total bliss.
“Congratulations you guys!” Veronica squealed, not bothering to wait for us to finish our moment. “I always knew you two would end up together. Hey, Curtis was wondering where you planned on having your honeymoon?” Curtis was Veronica’s new boyfriend. Boys were just like candy to her; you could eat them up, spit them out, and then move on to the next one. I was glad I never had to go through that kind of teenage drama.
“I don’t know,” I muttered, looking pointedly at Jack. “Apparently while I was… away with Tanya and Kate, Alice and him were off scheming and decided not to tell me where I was being dragged off to tonight.” She laughed.
“Good to know. This whole thing is so romantic! Do you think Alice could do my wedding?”
“I’d love to!” she said, appearing right behind Veronica and making her jump.
“Oh, uh, okay, great!” she stuttered, trying to get her bearings. Yes, vampires seemed to have that kind of affect on people. “I’ll call you when I need you.” Alice’s eyes sort of zoned out in that special way when she was searching through the future. They snapped back within a few moments and she grinned.
“Awesome. You never know, I might just be in town when that happens preparing Tanya’s wedding.” Edward, who had begun walking toward us with Bella, gave her a menacing look before turning to us.
“We’re both very happy for you. It’s a good thing you didn’t go through quite as much… trauma to get where you are now like we did.” Bella smiled and looked down shyly.
“Rosalie said you should go back to the house to change,” she said to me. “You won’t want to wear that to the airport.” I rolled my eyes. Everyone knew where I was going already except for me. It wasn’t fair.
“Yeah, you should go change,” Jack agreed, smiling mischievously. “I believe Alice has already packed your things, and she said there’s a little something on your couch for you to wear on our travels.” Edward snickered and both Bella and I gave him questioning looks.
“I’ll tell you later, love,” he said to his wife, stroking her cheek. “As for Cassy, I believe she’ll find out on her own once she gets inside.” I frowned; it was so unfair.
“Okay, fine, don’t tell me,” I pouted. “I’ll go get ready. But I expect at least a hint on the subject when I’m done.”
“We’ll see,” Jack chuckled, kissing me on the cheek. I smiled and made my way around the crowd, talking to as many people as I could, as fast as I could, so I could get away without acting rude. Of course, my mom was the one to hold up the line.
“Oh, honey, you look so adorable!” she cried, hugging me carefully. “Even though this was may not be the smartest idea, I’m so happy for you!”
“Uh, thanks mom,” I said, trying to look around her towards the forest.
“Now I know your dad talked to you about some of the things involved with marriage, but he left out one important detail; you be careful on your honeymoon, okay?” I groaned quietly.
“I know, I know. Be safe. I got it. Mom, this isn’t exactly a conversation I want to be having.”
“I know, and I’ll make this fast, but you can’t just avoid the awkward conversations in your life. Don’t do anything risky, and be careful… whatever you decide to do. It’s your honeymoon, and you’re in charge of yourself now, but it can’t hurt to give you a warning. You’ve grown up so fast, honey.” I chuckled.
“Yeah, I’ve heard that before. I gotta get going, mom; don’t want to miss the plane. I love you.”
“I love you too, sweetie.” She smiled. “Go get ready. Have a good time with Jack.” I giggled and hugged her one more time before weaving through the crowd and towards the house, where my ‘special surprise’ was waiting.
