Chapter 1. Beautiful Eyes
“ Bella, There’s three kids in the asylum awaiting you.” Mary said bluntly.
“ Okay. I’ll be right there.” I said, trying to fit her boring work tone.
Mary was one of the people who worked here with me in the asylum, this section.. She had blond hair, that would have looked gorgeous if she’d let it out. Instead she kept it in a pinned up bun.. She was rather in her late 20's and she was about my height..
I preferable worked with kids. I loved kids, and I loved to help them..
In the town of Forks I’m twenty-years old. My life wasn’t the most exciting but it was whatever it was.. Life had changed since my eighteenth birthday, my body shivering at the thought. I began walking down the corridor of the hospital. Taking my clipboard, and pen from my white lab coat. Signing my name next to the three kids I’d be working with..
Once Edward left me everything changed.. I began to hate life, not want it, but then I found more to life than..men.... I began focusing on my school work, my memory blunt from the last time I’d even seen the.. Cullens... I got a scholarship to Princeton University, and I graduating with astounding grades.. Also I was on the honor roll.. That was a year ago..
I could remember hearing them call my name, taking my diploma and seeing my parents happy faces, and tears strolling down my mom’s eyes... From then I found myself developing the need to help kids.. So I worked in the asylum as a psychologist for children....
I stopped in front of room 15... Pushing the door open I could see three kids sitting on the cot their backs facing me..
“ Hello. My name is Mrs. Swan.” I said looking down at my clipboard, assuming the boring business tone.
I looked up from my clipboard.. Then I saw them, I thought I was hallucinating... I thought it wasn’t real.. Three topaz eyes greeting me..
“ Don’t come any closer.” one said..
She had auburn hair that reach her shoulders.. The other who obviously look smaller than the first had brownish hair, but in the light it would surely look red.. Her eyes shimmered as though she would cry.. Lastly the boy had black cropped hair.
“ W- Why not?” I asked scared out of my mind.
Her eyes rolled in the back of her head. The innocent looking girl who would probably rip me to pieces..
“ Because I don’t want you to.” She said, I could see behind her lies.
It would have been smart of me to leave, but I just couldn’t..
“ C- Carrie is that your name.”
“ No It’s Susette.” She growled.
I wanted to run, but I couldn’t move.
“ I- I know what you are.” I said.
The words so familiar..
“ What?” She growled again.
“ You’re a vampire, I know.” I said, that was all I could say..
“ H- How? Well if you know then you should know we drink blood. Your blood is sweet luscious and we can rip you to pieces..” Susette said.
I tried to be brave, trying not to act scared..
“ How do you know about us?” She asked her tone softer and sweet like..
“ Promise you won’t kill me.” I said.
“ We won’t.. I promise.” She said innocently....
Somehow I trusted her, I trusted them, and I would hold them to that promise...
So I told them, I told them everything.. I had just met them today and I already felt so connected to them...
They were vampires, and I didn’t know if they could control themselves, but they promised, and I believed them....
“ Wow.” Susette said after I finished my story..
“ Well, this is Justin, he’s three. I’m Susette, I’m eleven and that’s Carrie she’s seven... Well that’s he ages were stuck at..”
My eyes nearly popped out of my head, they looked no where near seven, eleven, or three.. They looked like teens...
“ WHAT?” I asked puzzled.
“ Oh, I’m sorry that’s my power. I can make us look older than we really are.. Carrie can expand any gift, she expands my power so we don’t go back to looking like kids, and Justin can create illusions..” She said.
“ Hi I’m Carrie.” a girl said her outstretched hand waiting to be shook....
I shook the pale cold hand lightly afraid somewhat. That was the first time she’d talked to me all day, Justin hadn’t talked at all.. I was assuming because he was a baby..
“ Well tomorrow then.” I said getting up from my chair..
“ Goodbye Bella.” Susette and Carrie said in sync, while Justin waved..
I closed the door behind me.. Going into the dark corridor.. I was frightened, I wasn’t expecting it.. I hadn’t seen topaz eyes like that in so long..... A tear rolled down my cheek...
We’d learn so much about each other in one day and I wouldn’t give up on these kids.. Even though they were vampires, I wouldn’t say No. I would continue to come back and talk to them and see where it goes...
I hopped into my BMW... My chevy got old and I couldn’t drive it anymore...
I needed time to think about everything that had just happened...
Vampires... The word shivering down my back.. It made me think more of the Cullens.. More of Edward... More tears strolling down my face, I pulled up in my driveway.. Brushing my teeth, changing into my pajamas and heading to bed....
Awaiting whatever tomorrow had in store for me..
