A new experience
I walked down the stairs of my house in Forks, Washington making sure I’d not
forgotten anything. I was finally going to Italy, the other 8 vampires of my
family were coming as well of course but hey, who am I to complain especially
since convincing my parents to let me go at all was not as easy as I had
I’m 7 years old technically but I look like I'm in my teens because I'm only half vampire. My family is one of the things I treasure most in this world, oh and my best
friend Jacob too. I had never really made any h want to it just that they
tended to stay away from me, I thinks it’s probably because I just look
different, plus because I am always with someone in my family and they can be a
bit intimidating sometimes…. Alright a lot of the time. I'm usually with Jake
and he can get very protective sometimes.
So we leave to go to the airport and I can hear everyone mumbling things to themselves as we all hop into different cars. Emmett is talking about how he doesn’t
understand why we can’t just run even though I explained a thousand times that
I wanted to at least act normal especially since it was the first time I've
been on a holiday and can catch a plane. I hear Rosalie saying “pesky mutt” as
he jumps into her convertible with me. I love Rosalie. Not that I don’t love
everyone else but she is funny and makes me laugh when she and Jake fight. I
also love her car; it’s a pretty sweet ride.
When we arrived I noticed that the airport had a weird smell to it. But even though I smelt funny and all the people there looked sad or half dead I was still really
excited and itching to get on the plane. When we did I sat next to the window
with Jake and Esme.
“Ugh! What is that? It makes me want to puke!”
“Yeah, about that…..” Jake gradually said “That’s your dinner”
“Ewwwww no I am NOT eating that, I’d rather starve”
“Well it’s not here yet so let’s not worry about it”
“Ok but I'm still not eating it”
Two hours later and I was over the whole plane thing. There was nothing to do. I wasn’t really into movies though there were a few playing. Jake had fallen asleep and
was lying on my shoulder snoring very loudly. I heard a few people muttering
for him to shhh but I mean he can’t help it. So as I needed very few hours of
sleep and after a while of trying to find some form of entertainment in the
games on my little TV I decided I may as well try to get some sleep. It worked
and I fell asleep think of all the places me and Jake could go when we landed.
“Nessie?” I could hear in my dream, it didn’t seem real; it was just a voice in my head making its way into my trance.
“Nessie? The plane is about to land”
I realized it was Jake speaking and when I opened my eyes I noticed during my slumber I had spread across him. I smiled and he gave me one in return. Oh I loved his
smile. His whole face seemed to brighten up.
“Oh sorry I didn’t mean to do that” I apologized.
“Yea it’s no problem I didn’t even notice”
We waited till last to get off the plane because there was too many of us and we would lose each other if we did. Not that it would be hard to find them again. When we got
off and were waiting for our bags I went over to talk to my mum
“Hey mum, how was your flight?” I asked, my mum Bella looked almost as bored as I had been
“Don’t ask, you ok? No problems with anything?” she asked and gave me a kiss on the forehead.
“Nah my flight was all good just boring. So are we going to the hotel now?”
“Oh honey, we aren’t going to a hotel, your father seemed to think it would be better if he got a house for us.”
“Oh ok then. As long as it’s near the main attractions and not in some remote place where no-one will even know we are there I suppose that’s ok”
She gave me a sheepish grin.
“Oh mum no. please no”
“Come on it won’t be that bad”
“There’s my bag” just in the nick of time I added to myself. I didn’t want to cause a scene.
I was the last one to get my luggage so when I’d got mine we went out to the front and outside there were three silver cars waiting for us.
The car trip wasn’t as bad as the long plane one had been. During this ride I entertained myself by playing games with Jake. I was
hungry now and couldn’t wait till we arrived and I could go hunt some foreign
food with Jacob.
“Hey Rose are we nearly there?” I was in the same car as her and Emmett.
“I don’t know hun, I'm following your dad but I don’t think it will be too much longer”
Three minutes later we pulled up to a fairly large house that looked like it was two stories high. It looked like a very modern house; it had a huge door and tall
beams holding a roof over the door. I jumped out of the car and ran to the
entrance dragging Jake along with me. As I had jumped up in my rush to enter
dad had held the key out waiting for me to take it as I lunged towards my to be
home. When you’re walked in you were faced with 2 short flights of stairs with
only about 10 steps. One going up and one going down.
“Pick one” I asked of Jake
“Let's start at the bottom then shall we?” he decided
“Okie dokie” I said grabbing his hand as we walked down the stairs. We were now in a corridor and we turned right because that was the shortest and there was only
enough room for one bedroom. It had a king bed and a large bathroom and
everything. When we went back we walked past a large open area and a small
kitchen and directly in front of that was a large pane window. When I went
upstairs I found the perfect bedroom. My bedroom. It had two king beds (me and
Jake) a bathroom attached with a big spa and shower and a GIANT closet. I
jumped onto the bed closest to the window which took up almost the entire west
wall and there was the most beautiful view I had ever seen. I was sunset and
all I could see was the brilliant sky with magical colours of purple and pink
with a background of trees. I could hear some birds in the distance.
“Oh Jake isn’t it beautiful?”
“Yeah it’s ok”
Typical boy thing to say.
I put my hands to his face to show him what I wanted. To hunt. I saw his eyes sparkle at this though
“Well if your parents are cool with it then let’s go”
“Yes, just don’t be too late” I heard my dad call from somewhere downstairs.
Love you dad I though. I knew he would be able to hear me
“Race ya to the wood” I teased Jake
“You're on” he said as he bolted out of the room.
I could hear his heart thumping and the wind blow through my hair but I didn’t stop running. It just felt too natural. I could easily outrun him but instead I slowed myself
to fit his speed. All I could think
about was about the blood that I so desperately needed. The warmth of it going
down my throat. Suddenly everything went wrong.
Jacob stopped running and I could almost feel his panic. I could tell what was wrong too. Someone was coming. Jake and I were stood still, waiting trying to think
of what to do. So many thoughts crossed my mind in those few seconds. Should we
run back to the house? Should we wait and see what was coming and if it was
violent try to take it on? But what if it’s so much stronger than me? I am only
half vampire after all. As they came closer I began to sense other things about
them. I could smell them. It wasn’t a human but it didn’t smell like a full
vampire. It smelt like something I had never smelt before. Jake was the one to
say what we were both thinking.
“It smells like you”
