Chapter 1 - Intuition

 

From the moment I walked through the door I could feel his eyes on me. Boring into me, owning me, watching even the minutest move I made.

I thought that I’d lose this intuition when I became a vampire. But in reality it had just got stronger along with everything else.

I thought for a moment about the one big change that my transformation had made, my thirst. Although I was still young, and the thirst for blood should be overwhelming, I had been able to handle it from the first moment I awoke in my new life.  No one knew why that was. I could cope with human scents even up close, when I should have wanted to drink them dry. The scent caused me physical pain, an intense burning from my nostrils all down my throat, and feeling my throat squeezing tight with the dryness. But it was bearable. This was unusual for a new born. My kind usual manage this much control after a few years. But even with my self control the thirst was still there, the longing for something to put out the dryness.

My mind churned again. My mind could think of so many things at once. The dryness was always one of my thoughts, sometimes near the surface, then moving back into the background.  I could keep all the thoughts in my mind -- juggling two, five, ten thoughts in parallel -- but never mixing them. Like watching ten TV channels at once. Another vampire trait.

Maybe I was just being paranoid. Maybe there was no one looking at me. I still hated attention just as I’d done as a human, I still shied away from it. I was just letting my imagination run away with me again. No one was looking at me. But I could hear his heartbeat six feet to my left, slightly behind where I was standing. He was sitting on a chair next to the loveseat. He was close enough to feel the warmth of his skin in the cool of the morning air. I could smell the strong scent of the skin pouch he wore round his neck. A smell that forced out every lesser smell from that part of the room, like a car headlamp blinding out a flashlight. It was not just the animal fur with its heavy notes that I could smell, but what was inside it. The herbs and berries that it contained, each type giving a new harmony to the smell. Some sharp, some sweet. Some I knew -- citrus, juniper, cinnamon -- some I had no words for.

Maybe he was just looking at Nessie like everyone else in the room. My four month old daughter was reciting a poem for her audience in her beautiful childish voice, complete with dramatic pauses and carefully characterized accents for the speeches. She was a very advanced four month old. She looked more like a small four year old, but she would have been counted as a genius in any preschool. This was because she was half vampire and half human, and of course could never be allowed in preschool. Her brown hair, with a tinge of bronze that came from Edward, fell down her back in beautiful curls. Her eyes were a warm milk chocolate color that had been mine when I was human, and were now excited by the attention she was receiving. Her complexion was pale with a healthy pink glow of excitement.  We knew now that her rate of growth and progress would slow and she would be fully mature in another 6 and half years, and then live forever.  We’d learned this from Nahuel only two days before. My dark worries of losing Nessie had vanished.  We’d thought we would have to watch our daughter grow old and die in fifteen short years, and we would mourn her for ever.

I didn’t look to check if I was right about Nahuel and his staring. I had caught his eye only once that morning, when we came in and gave the usual greeting to our family and their two remaining guests.

I still didn’t understand why these guest were still here. Yes, I was grateful to them, especially him. So grateful it hurt. He had saved us all: my daughter, my husband, my vampire family, my wolf friends, and me. And he put himself and his father and his sisters in danger. How could I not be grateful to him. We all were.

I’d asked Edward twice why they had not left with the other guests after the standoff with the Volturi. The first time was after the celebrations when all the other guests had left and we had taken Nessie back to our cottage to sleep in her own bed. This was the first day that we’d met them, the first day of the stares. Edward had given his answer, saying Nahuel was so glad to know that a family like ours could exist. A family with a half vampire child, the only one Nahuel knew of that was not related to him, and a surviving mother. Nahuel’s mother died in child birth and so did the mothers of his half sisters.

It is rare to find a vampire who would want a physical relationship with a human woman, even rarer to find a women who survived such an encounter. Her life could end at any moment if he did not concentrate fully on keeping her alive. And what about the outcome of such an encounter? Mortals are not compatible with half vampire babies, the babies are so much stronger than the women.  I had only survived thanks to the care given to me by my vampire family and because Edward changed me into a vampire as soon as the baby was out. The memories of this violent birth were now dimming for me. The vampire venom had mended the terrible damage and left me whole, strong, and beautiful.

According to Edward, Nahuel had spent his long life, over 150 years, thinking he must be evil to the core to have killed his mother. But seeing me set him free from his guilt. He now blamed his father for not caring for his mother as Edward had for me, and for not changing her when Nahuel ripped his way out of her.

The second time I’d asked Edward why Nahuel and his aunt (a full vampire) were still with us, Edward said that they wanted to learn more about our vegetarian lifestyle. This was how we liked to describe our abnormal hunting habits in the Cullen family. Unlike other vampires we only hunted animals, not humans. This gave us distinctive golden eyes which intrigued the normal red-eyed vampires.  When I asked this second time, it was not what Edward had said that set me thinking but the way he said it. If I wasn’t his wife and didn’t know him so well I would not have noticed the slight tightening of his straight shoulders under his tan colored jumper, and that he was holding his perfect jaw a eighth of an inch higher than normal. He was lying to me.

Edward lied a lot. He had to. When you can read the minds of everyone in a mile radius then you have to lie to appear normal. You have to learn to ignore the thoughts most of the time.  You have to answer only the questions people say out loud and not all the far-reaching ones they think in their heads but don’t dare ask. Edward also felt he must not betray confidences of those around him. It was not as though he could stop hearing thoughts if he wanted to, and not as if people could stop thinking when he was around, so he just didn’t pass these thoughts on. I was a shield which meant that he could not read my mind, not even when I was only human.  Now that I was a vampire I had learned to remove my shield if I wanted, but I could only do so for a few moments at a time and even then it was exhausting work.

But why would he lie to me about why Nahuel and Huilen were still here? We had just made it through the worst danger imaginable: the whole of the Volturi forces lined up against us, the judges, jury and executioners of the vampire world. We had survived that, so what now? What was he covering up? Surely we had to have a break from peril sometime.

Maybe bad luck was something that I’d brought with me into this life. Since I met Edward as a human I had always had bad luck. My life before Edward, before my return to Forks to live with my Dad, Charlie, was a quiet life in the big city of Phoenix with my Mom, Renée.  The memory of this former life was becoming hazy, almost a pre life to my human life, as if I was now in my third life, not my second. I’d had too much on my mind to sit down and think about it, though that was the only way my family said that I would remember it for the future.   As I remembered it now, it was a happy but lonely time of looking after my hair-brained mother and being the adult in the relationship even though I was the child. She didn’t need to be looked after in a physical way but in an emotional one, helping her to organize and control her life.  I was the one who made sure we went to the store when we needed groceries and that we went to the bank when the bills needed to be paid.  In many ways you could say I was her keeper rather than her daughter. This role was taken by Phil, her husband of nearly three years.

I argued with myself that I had already brought my shield through to my vampire life along with my strange ability for self control.  I was sure that I could not have brought anything else. I had left my clumsiness behind, which was a truly good thing.  I now moved so fast and was so strong that if I was clumsy lots of things would get broken.  Not just inanimate objects, but living things.  Even people.

I looked over at Edward, to keep my eye from straying to Nahuel. His beauty never failed to amaze me. He was stunning. His eyes were a warm amber color. But this morning more like stone than liquid. Something was bugging him. No doubt he was hearing things he didn’t like. His face muscles twitched slightly and his teeth locked together noiselessly. His smile remained, a facade to keep the others away from his upset within. I had no idea what he had heard or who it was that was having these thoughts, but my mind turned to Nahuel again, though I didn’t let my eyes follow. Edward would tell me when it was right and certainly not in the middle of this gathering.

Edward applauded when Nessie came to the end of her poem, pride now on his face. I felt a jolt of joy at his pride. I was proud of her, naturally, and applauded loudly too. But to have him so in awe of her gave me such a feeling of belonging. I had, in the end, been able to give him something so worthwhile. A daughter, our miracle. It made up for the lack of balance in our relationship. He had given me everything: his love, his life, my new life, money, possessions, a home, a car, a family. But the one thing that that he had never imagined, that none of our vampire family had thought possible, came from me. She was a delight to them all, and especially Edward.

It was only as I turned away from Nessie’s performance that I noticed Alice was staring into thin air, her eyes out of focus, completely still. I knew she was seeing something. My sister’s ability to see into the future was enviable. It had made her top of the Volturi’s list for acquisitions.  It was this ability that had saved the family and herself many times over. The future she saw was only one of the possible outcomes. If decisions that had been made were changed then what she saw would change.

“Demetri is coming,” she said simply in a clear chiming voice, not altering her stance at all. “Aro has decided. He will follow Carlisle to us.”

Carlisle was at her side in an instant. “But why?” he whispered. “Why now?”.

The image of the the Volturi tracker was instantly in my mind. It was not possible for anyone normal to run from Demetri. He had a gift for finding them. But this gift needed access to someone’s mind, and it was something I could block with my shield. As well as being a tracker, Demetri was a warrior, with centuries of experience working with the Volturi.

“But why, Alice?” he asked again.

Alice had gone back into her trance. This time it took her over a minute to come round. “He comes only to observe,” she said with a little relief in her voice. “Aro will order him to stay with us and just observe. He is to watch Nessie grow for Aro and to find out more about the wolves for Caius. He is to cause us no trouble. He will be ordered to hunt like us. Aro wants to see how this will change his character. He is report back regularly by letter. This order will be made at full council the day after tomorrow. He will arrive three days after that.”

She looked around the stunned room.

“Please look for more,” Carlisle urged her.

“Demetri will bring a note with him from Aro but they know that I can see what it says so you will be forewarned. Aro is staring at it so that I can read it...

My Dearest Friend Carlisle,

I am sending my dear one Demetri to visit you as an emissary. I feel that our last meeting left a rift between us which I want to close. I have asked Demetri to learn about your life style and your beloved granddaughter so that we may better understand each other in future.

I ask you to take Demetri into your hearts and your home, and to this end I will ask him to make himself useful to you and cause you no trouble. Please use him as a son.

Yours in friendship,

Aro”

Carlisle looked aghast. “Is there more?” he said, shaking his head.

Her face returned to the distant mask, but seconds later disgust was clear on it.  She came back to the present again shaking her head. “Uh, that is so gross”.

“I saw part of the inner council meeting that was only the family, no guard. It is so gross.” she said, hardly able to speak for revulsion. “Aro says he wishes to watch a half vampire child develop first hand. He says that he will order Demetri to try to father a child when he has returned from his visit. He laughs and says that he may have learned some restraint from us. The mother is to be the only human they trust, their administrator Gina. They will promise her immortality if she successfully gives birth, but she has no choice. If she says no, she’s lunch. He says it will be a great honor for Demetri to father a child to be brought up and studied in Volterra. Caius is against the idea, the decision will be put off until a later date... I can’t see further than that, I’m not attuned to them, I can’t see so far ahead into their futures, I can’t see if she will become pregnant or if they will kill her, it is many months away, it may change.”

There was stunned silence.

All the joy after the last successful encounter with the Volturi was gone.

Then the speculation started. Alice could see the event but not the motivation behind it. It boiled down to three simple questions: why this? why now? and why Demetri? A dozen answers to each question came from the gathered family.  The most likely answer was that they wanted to catch us doing something against the rules as soon as possible, and Demetri can stand up for himself.

The others gave little thought to the planned baby. It was beyond the immediate worry and didn’t affect us personally. But my mind was on Gina and how I could help her.  I had only just survived my own pregnancy and I had had good medical care and love from all my family. I felt cold, cold to the heart.

Had I started some new vampire fashion? Would lots of vampire males want to father children? And what of the vampire females, would they want to become stepmothers? I thought of the loss of human life. I thought of Gina.

I found myself a spot on the floor and sat there still, shocked, horrified.

The discussion went on for nearly an hour, until Carlisle looked at the clock and said that he had to go for his shift at the hospital.

He turned to our guests, “Nahuel, Huilen. It may be best if you were not here when Demetri comes to call. I do not wish to ask you to leave but for your own safety I must ask you to think about what you want to do.  You know you have our thanks for what you have done for us, and I owe you for the safety of all my family. You are welcome here at any normal time.”

It was Huilen who spoke this time. She spoke simply in her heavy accent. “We will leave before he arrives.”

Carlisle smiled warmly at her. “That is for the best. We can visit you before long, and maybe meet Nahuel’s sisters if that is possible.”

The others continued to speculate after Carlisle had gone, Emmett debating with Jasper the possibility of beating Demetri in a fight. Jasper thought that if there were several of us it may be possible, but it would only bring the rest of the guard down on us, a battle which we would not win this time.

Alice touched me lightly on the arm, tutting at my pants and jumper combination. My favorite sister was never happy with my lack of fashion sense. But she could see the future, and would have known the day before about this particular lapse of mine. I thought to myself that I would suggest to her that she warns me in advance next time, so that I don’t disappoint her again.

“You know, I thought you would have learned a little by now Bella,” she chided quietly. “I will just have to take you back to your cottage and show you how to match up those pants myself. I didn’t spend weeks putting together your wardrobe for you to use it like this.”

 

That morning I must have really gotten under her skin. How could she care so much about fashion when she’d just given us the news about Demetri? Really. It made no sense.

I looked down at my outfit. It didn’t look that bad to me. I’d made sure that some of the threads in the jumper were exactly the same tone as the pants, but if it made her happy we could be home and back in a very short time. A few minutes out of the house would do me some good.

“Edward,” she chimed. “I’m taking Bella back to your cottage, can you look after Nessie by yourself?” The look on her face one of great effort.

He smiled warmly at her. “By myself? I don’t think that I will ever be allowed to look after Nessie by myself. She has too many fans for that.” He looked quizzically at her while he made his answer, as if they were having another inaudible conversation but failing to understand each other.

It was true. Most of the room were watching Nessie again, just waiting to see what she would do next, fascinated by her. Her Aunt Rose and Grandma Esme sat on the floor with her.

“We’ll see you soon,” Alice chimed again, wincing with effort, like a small child trying to remember a really difficult times table sum.

As soon as she said this I looked around the gathering to smile a normal goodbye. Then I saw him, Nahuel. He was staring at me. Staring at me with total adoration in his eyes as if I were the only thing he could see in the world.  The only thing he had ever seen. Like a blind man seeing the sun for the first time.

Oh no... no please no, I screamed inside my head. My face turned from a smile to sheer dread, his calm face turning from adoration to puzzlement at my expression.

Edward stiffened beside me, but said nothing.

Alice tugged my sleeve and we were off through the patio doors at the rear of the house,  running back to my cottage hand in hand. I was only too glad to go, and Alice's excuse was perfect.

As soon as we were over the river she said in a very hushed voice, “Shield me, stop him reading my mind.”

Hi Alex,

thanks for your comment.

I'm glad that you are finding it full of suspense. That is what I was aiming for, the story is meant to build slowly by slowly towards the end.

Bella has managed to pack a lot into the few days since the stand off with the Volturi. Her stress levels are at an all time high and she finds herself again with few people she can turn to for real help.

This time it is not people from the outside are attacking the Cullens as a whole or any individual more that she is causing all the upset herself from within the family. Although is is totally unintentional.

best wishes

Chris

Hi Chris,
another great chapter :) I am glad Jaspers feelings are finally out in the open (even if bella wont consciously accept them yet). still have a few theories which i will keep close until further reading, particularly around Jasper and what alice may or may not actually know. I feel for bella, it is most definitely not easy feeling like she is constantly causing disharmony between her new loving family but she needs to find someone to talk to about it soon. I find it interesting she didnt tell Esme, but then i can see why i guess.
Awaiting further postings
Fantastic once again Chris
Many thanks
Dark one

Hi Dark One,

Jasper is a great character - I don't see him as quite so cuddly as he is sometimes portrayed. He is a survivor of many conflicts, he would have to be able to use all his wits just to stay alive - that isn't something that would leave him. If he see something he really wants he isn't going to give it up easily. - Sorry if you don't see him this way I just think it is more realistic. He is not bad just cunning and plays for the longer term most of the time.

Bella needs to find a way to talk to her husband - but it is so hard when he is soooo - well, so Edward I guess.

Why do you think Bella felt like she was being watched?

Thanks you as always for our very supportive comments - all my comments really help, I know they take time and effort to compose so I very grateful for them.

Best wishes

Chris

Chris

Great update. Is there someone watching or is this the feeling of Jasper over taking Bella or is vise verse. If someone is watching then who is it. This chapter has raised a lot of questions. Who is watching maybe Edward? This was a intriguing chapter. Please update sooner then later

Tia 

Hi Tia,

thanks for commenting on the chapter.

If there is someone watching it could be the jealous husband, an unwanted admirer, an unwanted admirers mate, a person in authority e.g. the volturi, a wolf,  or some other person.

Of course we don't know if there was someone or even if it was Bella they were watching - it could easily have  been Jasper - maybe his past catching up with him?

So many questions - but I can't tell you the answer it would ruin the plot - sorry.

I will update soon - probably tonight.

best wishes

Chris

Chapter 24 - Arrival Part 1

 

On the day of Demetri’s arrival we all gathered in the lounge of the main house at ten thirty. We arranged ourselves casually on the chairs, Edward, Jasper and Emmett slightly closer to the door than the rest of us although still managing to make it look a haphazard arrangement.

As Alice had predicted Demetri arrived by car at ten forty. As he drew up at the front of the house Carlisle rose from his chair and opened the door to welcome our new guest. A calm permeated through the room - Jasper was purposely making this meeting as relaxed as it could be. Carlisle had requested that we all went out of our way to make sure that Demetri felt welcome. Personally I felt that was going to be hard, it felt as if we were having a spy forced into our midst. A spy who would report back on any behavior considered out of line, and that would be the end of the family.

Nessie was sat on my knee. I was nervous but not in the same way as when the other vampires had come to witness for us. Partly this was Jasper’s calming influence, but mainly because Demetri already knew about Nessie and who she was, and it had been decided by his masters that she was not a law breaker just by her mere existence.

“Good morning Demetri, I trust that you had a pleasant journey.”

“Carlisle, I am honored to meet you again and yes, thank you, the journey was very straightforward. I have a letter here for you from Aro but I have been assured that you will already know its contents.”

“Yes, Alice gave us the news of your visit a few days ago and you are most welcome here, please come in and meet my family.”

The brothers of the family all stiffened slightly but remained calm. Without Jasper this would have been very awkward.  Demetri entered the room just in front of Carlisle. I was expecting to see him dressed in his gray cloak, his Volturi uniform.  I’d only ever seen him wearing this and only ever associated him as part of the Volturi guard, but without it he seemed to bear little resemblance to the man I’d first met in Volterra. He looked glorious even though he was standing next to Carlisle. He was dressed in what was evidently an expensive and highly fashionable dark blue suit with a black cotton shirt beneath. Alice was sitting next to me on the loveseat sofa and purred so quietly that I was sure that I was the only one to have heard it. I thought it was probably his suit that was causing this reaction. She at least would appreciate his fashion sense.

Demetri smiled a dazzling white smile at us all, “Good morning, friends.” his hands were in a non-aggressive gesture, open clearly, trying to put us all at ease.

I looked more closely at his face. His eyes were an odd, almost black, color, no doubt colored contacts to disguise the deep crimson of a mature, human-hunting vampire.  But what really intrigued me was that around his eyes there were very small wrinkles, not the wrinkles of old or even of middle age, but just the slightest first showings that were emphasized by his smile. His hair was black but flecked with gray as if highlighted. How old was he when he was turned? Older than me certainly, but I was just a teenager. Older than Carlisle also, but I thought he must be younger than my father as Charlie was more wrinkled and more gray.

It hit me then who he reminded me of - a lead singer in a European pop group from the early 90’s that had reformed. I’d seen him interviewed on a late night chat show the previous week. Although Demetri was past the prime of his youth he had aged gracefully towards middle life, like a tree turning from the first flush of spring leaves to a full summer crop. The wrinkles fell from around his eyes as his smile calmed to a contented look.
 

Chapter 24 - Arrival Part 2

Chapter 24 - Arrival Part 2

 

Carlisle broke the short silence, “Demetri, this is Esme my wife and mother or grandmother to all the rest.”

Esme rose from her seat as Carlisle introduced her. Demetri took two slow paces towards her, bent his head and kissed her lightly on both checks. “It is a pleasure to meet you first hand Esme. You have a charming home here.”

“Thank you, Demetri, you are most welcome here. We have prepared a room for you and I hope that all will be to your liking.”

“You are most kind, I had not expected such a welcome. I’m not used to home comforts such as a room of my own. I assure you that I will endeavor to fit in as a member of your family as best as I can.”

Carlisle introduced us in turn around the room, first Emmett with whom Demetri shock hands rather than a normal European kiss, which was a good judgment as I’m not sure how Emmett would have reacted to such a greeting.

Demetri smiled at him, “I’m sure you are the sportsman of the family.  I was hoping that I would get to understand American games while I’m here.  I’ve taken to following football at home over the last hundred years or so and it has become a bit of a passion of mine, sorry soccer as you’d call it, but baseball and American football are a bit of a mystery to me.”

Emmett grinned from ear to ear, “Do you play soccer or just spectate?”

“Well  I don’t get much opportunity in to play in Volterra but when we are not busy a few of us go off to the hills and have a game on the way to hunt. But I watch the European leagues although only ever on television and then only when I can get out of the palace.”

“Fantastic,” Emmett beamed, “I’m sure that we can arrange for you to have some soccer and baseball while you are here, weather permitting of course.”

Carlisle moved on to Rose who was sat on an upright chair next to but a little behind Emmett. She stood and moved forward, “This is Rose.”

“Ah, Rose, your reputation for beauty goes before you.” Demetri kissed her .

Rose smiled, embarrassed but smug.

Jasper was next.

“Good morning, Jasper. I’m sure that I have you to thank for my calm on meeting you all. I was concerned when I got out of the car about the reception I would receive, but now I feel relaxed, such a very useful talent. I presume that you are a soldier too, from your battle scars.”

“Yes, I’m a survivor from the Southern wars.”

“A terrible time, for all of the vampire world,” Demetri nodded grimly.

Next it was Alice, who jumped up, pecked Demetri on both cheeks, and announced that she had foreseen that the two of them would go on shopping trips together. There was a brief interlude while the two of them talked of fashion designers that I’d never heard of.

Then it was Edward.

“Edward, a pleasure to meet you again in much better circumstances. You are truly blessed to have both a beautiful and talented wife and a miraculous daughter. I had children when I was human, two. Fortunately the memory is dim now after so long, the pain of leaving them was so great.”

Then it was just me and Nessie. I stayed sat down rather than rising to greet him as Nessie was holding on tightly to me.
 

Chapter 24 - Arrival Part 3

Chris. This is amazing. You have bought so much more to each chracter. The way you have portrayed all thse chracters is amazing and I'm the first to comment I think lol please update soon tia

Hi,

 sorry about the missing part 3 of chapter 24 of Cold Gray Light - I've posted it now.

Best wishes

Chris

 

Great chapter!  It seems as if the first meeting with Demetri went well.  Of course Bella didn't want to look weak or foolish in front of Emmet, and now the wolves have to reteach her how to play soccer.   It will be interesting to see what happens there!

Can't wait for the next chapter!

S

PS: Is it just me or is Part 3 missing?
