chapter 1 hurt hello. my name is kerigan kellen. (and kerigan is pronounsed CAREAGAN)i have dirty brown hair. i am only 11 when i almost died. my mother died when i was 6 and my dad has never been the same since then. when he is mad he beats me. my dad took me out of school when i was 9. today was the worst day of my life... and the best. i have scars all over my body. most don't show much any more but one always will. i remember when my father cut me in the face with a peace of glass from a broken vasie. right across the face. from my eye brow to my cheek. today he took out a gun and shot me in the shoulder. i wacked one of his beer bottles on his head and ran away as far as i could into the woods... not a good idea.
blood kept splirting from my arm. it hert. i wish my mom was here. her name was cathey. she was so sweet... she would have never done anything like this to me. i fear broken glass beacuse every time i see it it remeinds me of when my dad cut my face... when he did i saw a glimpce of my mom when she died in pain. that was not the last image i wanted of her but it was stuck in my head.
her beautiful hazle eyes filled with sorro and pain. her body old weak...
she was the nicest person ever.. why did she have to die? i calapsed to the ground at a loss of blood.
i saw my mom right above me... as clear as the trees infront of me and behind.
she wore whight. her face was as wonderful and beautiful as before she was sick.
"mom?" i asked in my painful voise.
"you'll be ok hun. someone is coming to get you she will save you. i am sorry i could not save you from your father but i can save you know." mom told me. she stroked my cheek. it was warm.
she flashed my her wonderful heart warming smile and dissapered.
"mom mommy no!!" i screamed.
a angle came up to me. she was a beautiful blond. she put her hand on my head. it was freezing. i shiverd.
"EMMETT BELLA!" she yelled.
two more angles apered. one with dark brown hair a female the other with dark black hair. it was a man. it was cut short.
"emmett we should bring her to carlisle. he can turn her." the brownd haired girl said.
"no." the blond one said.
"what if she ends up like me. not wanting it? lets see if carlisle can help her." said the blond one. she picked me up. i felt comferted in her arms. like i did in my mothers.
i been without a mother for to long. i felt wind blow agest my face. if fet good. i could fell more and more of my bloodd draning.
"carlisle!!" yelled the blond.
i man about 29 30 came up to me. "whats wrong rosalie?" he asked.
so that was her name. rosalie. i loved it.
"do you want me to turn her?" carlisle asked. "no i want to see if you could help her.
what did they all meen about "turn?" i just didn't get it,
carlisle looked at me. well she has been shot in the shoulder look." he said pointing to my shoulder.
the brown haired girl gasped. "what happned to the poor girl! she lookes only 10 or 11!" said the brown haired girl. she seemed vary upset. i tryed to speak but i couldn't find my lips.
all i could let out was
"you will be ok." said carlisle. then he gave me a pill. he had to make it go down my mouth because i couldn't swallo it.
the i driffed off into a deep sleep.
i stared at the girl infront of me. i felt like i needed to protect her like she was mine. my daugter.
i would of cryed if i could. carlisleremoved the bullet. and bangged her arm.
"we just have to wait for her to wake up now." carlisle told me. i shook my head.
i looked at her again. she was probly going to be hugrey when she woke up so i went inot the kichen to make her something.
when i opened the frige i woman in a wight dress apered. i gasped and backed away.
"no no please don't be afrade!!" said the woman.
