Chapter 1 Finding Kate
I've gone 80 years with a black,starless sky. 80 years without a light to guide my way. 80 years without a purpose. I've spent 80 long years waiting for her.The one that will give me light. The one that will give me purpose. The one I can give my entire existence to. I finally find her. Shooting fast across the sky, silencing every cry I have ever had. Alice tells me her name....Kate. My beloved Kate. I Love You.
Bartlett High School.
That's where I find her. Sitting across the cafeteria by herself, trying not to be noticed. But I notice. Its impossible for me not to. Her cheeks flush red when she sees me staring. So beautiful.I can't stand not being near her...Rosalie warns me not to, but I go over to where she's sitting.
Don't go! She can't know about us, she thinks.
"Don't worry," I whisper quietly. "She won't. I have myself under control."
She sees me coming over and quickly looks back down at the table.
"Hello." I say in my polite vampire voice.
"Um.Hi," I hear her say.
I can't hear anything else, however. Odd. Maybe I'll have to wait a little longer to hear her thoughts.
"My name is Edward Cullen. May I have the pleasure of knowing your name?"
"I-I'm Kate Keslington" she replies, blushing.
"May I sit?"
"Uh.Sure." She scrambles to move her books."Here you go.
I sit, and then tense up when a person runs by the table,blowing Kate's scent towards me.
For some reason, when the breeze brushes past her, I don't feel the urge to kill her. Not like I have with other humans. I don't smell anything coming from her. No scent at all.Odd. What a strange human.
I wonder...Ah! I still can't read her mind. What is wrong with me?
I do a quick check to see if I can read the other children's minds in the cafeteria.
Yep I can:
Who is she?
Why is he sitting by her?
Oh, I hope he looks over this way.
I want to get to know her.
He better keep his mouth shut.
This last thought was from Rosalie.
I turn slightly to wink at her. She seems enraged by my gesture.Oh well.
I turn back to Kate.
"So, Kate. What brings you to Anchorage?"
"Well.er. My dad is in the military and I move every 4 years."
"4 years? That's a very short time." I have this strange feeling that when she leaves, I will follow.
"Yeah.It is.Its not a very long time to get to know anybody."
"Its enough to get to know me...If you want." Please want to.
"Okay," She replies, clearing her throat."Let's start with..."
She hesitates, and looks around the table searching.
She reaches in her bag and brings out a piece of paper and pen.
"I'll write it down, cause I don't want anyone to hear."
She writes something down on a piece of paper.
She slides it across to me, and looks me in the eye.
"Don't lie to me Edward," she says."I know."
Since I still can't read her mind, I look at her puzzled.
"What do you know?"
"Just read it."
I look back at Alice and she nods her head.
I open the paper.
Edward. What are you? I'll know if you're lying to me.
Confused, I write back, What exactly do you know?
She writes, I know…that…you’re a vampire.
Hiding my shock, I write back calmly, And what makes you think that?
Because... I used to date one.
I hope you like it!

Chapter 12 Poisoned
Edward crumples to the floor with deafening, choking sounds. For a moment, a wave of sadness washes over me.
The Cullens flew into a panic, Carlisle crouched over Edward's shaking body.Rosalie nearly pounced on me, her teeth bared in rage. Alice blocked her though, and I could see her straining to keep Rosalie away.
"What the hell did you do?" Rosalie growled through gritted teeth. I cringed back, becoming frightened at her glare.
"I-I don't know!"
"Quit lying!" Rosalie screamed. Edward's body stilled. Carlisle tried to do CPR, but it was no use since his heart never pumped.
"I-I think I killed him."
'You what?" Rosalie asks. I could see that Alice was weakening in her resolve in keeping Rosalie from me. Everyone's head snapped in my direction. I hesitated.
James spoke up. "Hold, on. Hold on. She did not kill Eddie."
I looked at him. "But you said-"
"Yeah, I know what I said. It's called lying. Your Eddie boy is going to be fine."
"Really?" I asked, confused. I looked at Edward's body. He didn't seem like he was going to be 'fine'
"Yes." James smiled. "Actually, he'll only be fine if I give him the antidote." James reached into his pocket and pulled out a vial. Jasper lunged and tried to snatch it from him, but James easily dodged him.
"Give us the antidote then." Jasper said through gritted teeth.
I will, provided that you all agree to do me a little favor."
Jasper narrowed his eyes. "What favo-"
"Done!" Alice said. She walked forward after making sure that Rosalie wasn't going to rip my throat out.
"I'll do it."
James raised an eyebrow at her. "Really?"
"Yes." Alice nodded.
"Wait. What did you just agree to."
"Nothing we can't discuss later, honey." Alice said sweetly to Jasper.
"No. I want to discuss it now."
Alice held up her hand towards Jasper and lightly shook her head.
"Give it to him. Now."
James studied Alice for a moment, then shrugged. "Alright."
He tossed the vial at Carlisle, who opened it and poured the contents into Edward's mouth.
James sat down on a chair and leaned back on it.
"It's going to take a while. so we might as well get comfortable. Oh, and by the way, haven't you guys forgotten something?"
The Cullens looked around in confusion. Suddenly, Alice's face lit up in shock.
She gaze at me.
"Your baby!" She exclaimed. She hurried over to me and we both felt it at the same time. The bump was gone. There was no baby.
"It's gone," I said looking up at James. "But how...?"
"You were never really pregnant," James said plainly.
"Yeah, I know. You don't think I'd actually get a human pregnant, do you? Please. That's irresponsible. Not to mention sick."
"But I felt it. And the pain..."
"Oh, that's another cool thing. That was an illusion. The great thing about drinking a hybrid's blood is that you gain a special temporary power. When I drank from Kate a few days ago, I gained the power to create illusions. It's a nice party trick."
"So what about Edward?"
"Well when your blood is mixed with the contents of that vial, the vampire becomes human."
"So you mean..."
And with that, Edward sucked in a deep breath and stuttered back to life.
I just found your story and it's really good, I can't wait to read your next update!
