The song "Set Fire to the Rain" by Adele gave me this idea. I hope you all like it!!!!
Alexis Hawk has been odd ever since the accident almost ten years ago that both took her parents away from her and gave her the power to manipulate fire. No one knows about her power except her two friends and her aunt. Then her aunt gets a job offer in Forks, Washington, and since there are no other good job offers, Alexis and her aunt both have to move to Forks, Washington. What happens when she meets Seth and he imprints on her? Would Seth accept that his imprint is extremely dangerous? And who are the mysterious people who seem to be stalking Alexis from the shadows?
Chapter 1: Moving Day (Alexis's POV)
I watched the rain pour down through my airplane window and I instantly felt horrible. Fire and water don't mix.
"Why are we going again?" I asked my Aunt Casity for the hundredth time.
"Recession, Lex. We have no choice. Plus this'll be a new beginning for you," she answered optimistically from behind a People magazine.
"I don't need a new beginning," I sneered.
"Yes, you do," Casity glared at me. "Do you want me to remind you when you set that girls backpack on fire in the middle of math class?" Oh, yeah, that.
"She deserved it!" I argued making a few people turn their heads in our direction. I waited until they turned back around to continue. "Besides, it was an accident! I never meant to set her backpack on fire! I was just so ticked off-!" I said remembering that day.
I sat down at my usual math seat and started to take out my books.
“Hey Alex!” my best friend Kathy said sitting next to me. Kathy was by far the most optimistic person on the planet. I’ve never seen her cry, even when she stepped on a nail in fourth grade. All she said was “Cool! Not many people can say they have a hole in their foot! Now I can!” Yeah, she’s a little weird, but my friends and I still love her anyway. And she knew what I was, and she accepted me, even though I was a monster.
“Hey Kathy. How’s live treatin’ ya lately?”
“Absolutely wonderful!” she replied. Typical Kathy. Then Janice walked in. She’s just like the popular cheerleader jerk in the movies only she wasn’t very popular, she wasn’t rich, and she wasn’t all that pretty. But she was, however, the biggest jerk I’ve ever met in my entire life. And she seems to find joy in picking on my other best friend Nancy. Nancy is a mathematical genius and is everything Janice ever wanted to be, pretty, smart, rich, and popular. But she’s also very soft inside and is very down on herself so it doesn’t take a lot to make her cry.
“Hey, freak show,” Janice sneered looking down on Nancy with her HUGE friends (who were on the wrestling team) standing behind her. Nancy shrunk down into her seat and looked at the floor. I was, unfortunately, on the other side of the room watching all of this go down. “What in the world are you wearing?” she sneered at her jeans and red t-shirt. “You’re starting to look like the red freak over there,” she said jerking her head in my direction while her goons laughed idiotically.
My side bangs that usually fell in my eyes were red, but I couldn’t control that! They were like that ever since the accident when I was six!
Nancy shrunk back further into her chair and her shoulders hunched in. I started to shake with rage as I watched them.
“Alexis,” Kathy warned. I saw red and Janice’s backpack caught on fire. I made sure it didn’t hurt her, but only scared her. Nancy looked at me with a sad expression on her face she also knew what I was. I looked down and sighed. Dang it! Why can’t I control my temper?
I ran my hand over my face and stared outside as we landed at Port Angeles with it still pouring rain. I sighed again and got up to get my stuff out of the overhead. It was going to be a long day.
Chapter 2: La Push Beach (Alexis POV)
“So? What do you think?” Casity said holding her arms wide with our new house behind her. It was two stories and HUGE, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, a spacious kitchen, and two offices.
“Not much to say but wow,” I said approvingly. Casity grinned and ran inside to look at the inside. I smiled and walked back to the car to get our luggage.
“Mommy! Daddy! Grandpa! Look, look!” said a little girl across the street pointing at me. She was looking at a young beautiful girl with brown hair and gold eyes and a bronze haired boy with gold eyes. The girl and the boy were obviously a couple. There was also a man in his early fifties with black hair brown eyes, and I thick mustache. I frowned at looked at them. There was no way the couple could be the little girl’s parents. She was six and they looked no older than eighteen. But there were similarities between the couple and the little girl.
I shook my head and walked to the house. It was none of my beeswax if they were the girl’s parents or not.
“Hi new person!” she yelled as she ran towards me. As she got closer I saw that she was just as beautiful as her parents with her bronze ringlets, and brown eyes. Huh, I guess that’s genetics for ya. The bronze haired man started to crack up with laughter. Ok-ay. Weird.
“Uh, hi,” I said smiling at the girl.
“Are you moving in here?”
“YAY!” she said jumping up and down while clapping her hands. “We can be friends!” she said running forward hugging my legs. I smiled and laughed.
“Sure!” I said hugging her back. Dang she was adorable!
“Renesmee! You might want to come back now!” the lady yelled.
“Okay mommy! Bye-bye!” And then she raced back to her mom with frightening speed. I turned around. Okay. Been her less than an hour and I’m already questioning my sanity. That has to be a new record.
After we had moved all our luggage in Casity told me about La Push Beach.
“I don’t like water,” I said crossing my arms.
“But it’ll be pretty!” she argued.
“I don’t like water,” I repeated not budging.
“Pretty please?” she said giving my the puppy eye look. I cracked.
“Fine. But I’m not going near the water.”
“YAY!” she said jumping up and down. I rolled my eyes. Sometimes Casity acts more like a ten year old than a twenty-three year old. I walked out to our car and got in the passenger seat. As we drove to the beach with Casity chattering nonstop, I glared out of the window. I really don’t like water. I mean I REALLY don’t like water. I pulled my black hair back with a red hair tie and let my red bangs fall in my face.
And then we arrived.
“This is SO COOL!” Casity said jumping out of the car. I yawned and slowly got out of the car stretching out. I looked around. It was a beautiful beach, I had to admit. But I still felt uneasy near water. “Come on!” Casity said grabbing my wrist and started to pull me down the beach. I let her take me where ever she wanted to go except when she got too close to the water. I just dug my heels into the ground and glared at her until she pulled me somewhere not close to the water. “Hey Lex, look!” Casity said pointing to a group of guys about halfway down the beach. They were all Indian, probably lived on the reservation. I sighed and looked at the sea again. They were so out of my league. And we continued walking.
“Hi neighbor person!” I heard a small voice yell. I was the girl before. I grinned and she ran over and hugged my legs.
“Hi there!” I said getting on my knees so I could be eye level with her. She smiled again and hugged me.
“Do you remember me?” she said bouncing with excitement.
“Of course I do! You’re my neighbor.”
“Technically you’re my grandpa’s neighbor, but I go there everyday so you really are my neighbor!” she grinned.
“Well, I’m glad to have such an adorable neighbor like you!” I said as she giggled. “What’s your name?”
“Renesmee! What’s your name?” she asked her eyes wide.
“That’s such a cool name!” She yelled.
“I’m glad you think so,” I laughed.
“Why is your hair red?” She said pulling at my hair.
“Because I like red.” And the interrogation went on for a while. She just asked question after question about me. Then her mom, or who I assumed was her mom, walked over.
“I’m sorry, is she troubling you?” she asked picking up a frowning Renesmee.
“Not in the least,” I said getting up. “She’s pretty amazing. Has a better vocabulary than most people in my old school,” I laughed. She laughed a high bell like laugh.
“I’m Bella Cullen,” she said holding her hand out. I shook her hand but almost recoiled because it was so ice cold.
“Pleasure to meet you.” Dang, even her smile was perfect.
“I guess I’ll see you later Renesmee,” I said. She pouted as her mother walked away with her. The Indian boys were looking at us. But there was only one that caught my attention. He was the smallest of the boys, with a kind smiling face with black hair falling over his brown eyes. I could have looked at him forever but Casity broke his spell on me.
“Shall we get moving?” She asked jumpy. Without waiting for an answer she grabbed my wrist and pulled my down the beach almost making me trip a few times. But I couldn’t forget that boy’s face who was he?
“Hey Seth!” Jacob yelled. I ran down the beach to where the rest of the pack was. We were all having a kind of day off where we just hang out and once it gets dark we’ll have a huge barbeque with loads of food. The Cullens were also invited to Leah’s dismay. Bella and Renesmee were already there. Gee, every time I see her she’s a bigger. She now looks about seven or eight years old. She was (obviously) next to Jake who was joking with Bella. I laughed. Some things never change. Then something caught Nessie’s attention, and she got happier, if that was even possible.
“Hi neighbor person!” she yelled running away from Jake. We all watched her go near the water’s edge and hug a teenage girl. She was perfect. She had black hair with side bangs that were red. She was wearing cargo pants, a black T-shirt and black boots. Her eyes were a very pale blue and she was smiling at Renesmee. Renesmee was just talking to her so carefree. I was jealous. Then Bella walked over to get her daughter. I wonder what the Cullens looked like to her. As Bella walked back with Nessie the girl finally looked at me. Her eyes widened and we just stared at each other. I could’ve looked at her forever. But then the other woman she was with grabbed her hand and dragged her down the beach making her nearly trip. I watched her until I couldn’t see her any more.
“Dude,” I said looking at Jake. He slapped me on the back and grinned.
“Yeah dude. You just imprinted.”
Okay i know it's a lot but please tell me if i should continue this fan fic!! Please! Thanks for reading!
okay guys! another kind of uneventful chapter. Hope you all like it!!!!
Chapter 5: Finally (Alexis POV)
I stared at my ceiling thinking about what had happened. Christopher had found me- but how? He was supposed to be dead. The SHADOW had gotten him last year-didn’t they? I groaned and sat up. “Why is my life so damn complicated?!” I yelled. Okay, I feel better. I thought. I looked out my window to see my wolf standing there in the rain. I frowned and got up. I opened the window and waved. The wolf nodded to let me know he’d seen me. I just sat there and stared at him. Why did he look so familiar? The brown eyes didn’t look wolf like at all and his face seemed kind. I just stared at him until he tuned around and left. I shook my head, walked back to my bed, got under the covers, and went to sleep.
The next morning was one of the best mornings in my entire life.
“Hey.” I looked up from my book to see (oh my gosh) the Indian boy I’ve been practically obsessed with for the past three weeks sitting across from me with his head tilted slightly to the side.
“Hi,” I said marking my page and putting my book down. Crap, what do I say?!?!?! I was thinking. I have dreamt of talking to him but now I was totally frozen.
“I’m really sorry for my sister’s behavior yesterday.” Huh? CRAP! Okay, play it cool Alex. COOL, what ever that means.
“No problem,” I shrugged. “I’ve meet worse, trust me. Just tell her I’m sorry for getting ticked off so easily.” I said looking out the window at the ocean.
“Well, she kinda soaked your book.” I looked back at him and he smiled timidly. Dang he’s cute. No, no and no. He’ll just run away, like Rein. “Let me make it up to you. How about I show you around La Push,” he said smiling even wider.
“I’m not usually supposed to go off with strangers. How can I trust you?” I really didn’t want to fry him. He’s too pretty to fry. He just laughed.
“Well, I’m going to say a predictable line and say, let’s not be strangers.” He held out his hand. “Seth Clearwater.” I took his and shook it.
“Pleasure to meet you. Now let’s go before the tourists come out.” He let go of my hand (that kinda made me sad… GAH! WHY?!) and lead me to the door. We toured the beach that day, and the best places to go to avoid tourists and screaming children, and he even told me some tribal stories! (so cool!)
“Thanks, a lot,” I said as we walked back to the café a little after three in the afternoon.
“My pleasure,” he said smiling down at me. I blushed a little and looked down.
“Thanks again,” I said as we reached the café. “So, I’ll see you tomorrow?” He smiled.
“Of course! Not even close to being done with seeing La Push.” And he walked away. I smiled and allowed myself to blush uncontrollably as I walked back to my house. I took a little path that went through the forest. And who did I find? My friend the wolf watching me curiously.
“Yo!” I said waving. He gave a wolf equivalent of a chuckle and walked to me. I patted his head and smiled. “Well, best day ever!” I grinned. He tilted his head to the side. “Come on. Walk with me and I’ll explain.” So I told him everything, about that day, about myself and, about my weird little crush on Seth.
“But sometimes it makes me sad,” I said looking at the ground as we neared my house. “It won’t work out.” The wolf nudged my arm with his nose looking at me funnily. “Who wants to me with me?” He raised his eyebrows. “Besides a freakishly large wolf.” He chuckled and licked my cheek, and I was laughing until we reached my house. “See ya!” I yelled and ran in.
I followed this routine everyday for two weeks. In the morning Seth would take me a new place, show me around, and we’d just talk for a few hours. Then I went and told my wolf. Those were some of the best weeks of my entire life.

Chapter 6: Heartbroken (Seth POV)
I sat there in the café waiting patiently. This is it. I’m going to ask her out, today. Ugh. I’ve been saying the same thing for the last three days but I haven’t gotten the courage to do it. I mean, I know she likes me, but, what if I say something and she stops liking me. Ugh. And then she walked in, smiling as always.
“Hey Seth!” she said walking over. I grinned.
“So, where to today?” she asked as we walked out.
“I was thinking another part of the beach. I’ve been walking around lately and I’ve found a really cool spot.” Actually I found it on patrol, but that still counts as walking around, right?
“Perfect!” she grinned making my heart jump. I smiled and walked with her. Ask her now! Said a voice in my head, it’s perfect timing. I was debating with myself all the way to the beach.
“Uh, Alex?” she turned around. Okay, you can do this. “I was wondering, would you like to go out –“
“SETH!” said a high pitched voice behind me. No flippin’ way. Behind me stood my first girlfriend and my worst, Mayla Cross. We were boyfriend and girlfriend for two weeks and then she had to move to California. I was so happy when she left. She was too clingy, too girlish, and dressed WAY too skimpily. I’m serious, even in the winter she insisted on showing her stomach. I don’t even remember why I liked her. But then again I was fourteen, and I wasn’t exactly the brightest person ever-.
“I’m so glad to see you again!!” she yelled as she ran forward and hugged me. And it being summer, she was wearing a bikini top and shorts that were just WAY too short. Alex just stood there with no expression on her face. Mayla hugged me tighter. “I missed you.”
“Please get off me.” Mayla pouted.
“But I’m your girlfriend.” I looked over at Alex who had her eyebrows raised. Oh crap.
“Girlfriend?” Alex asked. Mayla let me go (thankfully) and looked at Alex with her cold blue eyes.
“Yes, I’m his girlfriend. It’s a long distance relationship. And who are you?” she said gesturing to Alex’s long cargo pants and baggy red T-shirt.
“Just a friend.” NO! Damn, Mayla was ruining everything. “I’ll see you later, Seth.” Alex started to walk away but I grabbed her hand.
“Please wait! Really, I broke up with her-!”
“No you didn’t!” I glared at Mayla and she flinched.
“It’s okay.” I looked back at Alex. She was looking at the ground and her hair was covering her face. Then she looked up and smiled at me. “You can talk to your girlfriend, I’ll see you tomorrow.” And she walked away. I stood there frozen. God, why does everything have to be so goddamn complicated?
I knew it. I knew he had someone. But, did it have to someone like her?! She was tall, pretty, and obviously not afraid to show off her body. She was like an evil, perfect, Barbie doll from Hell. I never wore anything that showed my shoulders, the scars on my back are just too disgusting. As I walked away I felt my heart break into a thousand million pieces. He did have someone; I had no right to be there. And he even tried to make me feel better. He was so nice. I wish I had him.
I took my normal rout through the forest home. It was a nice walk, and usually made me feel good. But I felt nothing. Empty. Lonely. I wish my wolf would come so I wasn’t so lonely. I stared to cry, but I hurriedly wiped away the tears. I haven’t cried since I was ten, when Rein left. I miss her so much-.
“Hey Alex!” I whipped around to find Christopher sitting on a fallen tree. I crouched and yelled,
“What do you want?” He just laughed.
“What do you think little Alex?” He jumped down from the tree and walked over. I straightened up quickly and snapped sending the ground in front of him burning. He backed up a little doused the flames with water from his water bottle. “I want to recruit you.”
“For what this time? Another extremist group?” I snapped. Something was off. The hair on the back of my neck was standing up. Something was different about him, what was it. It was his eyes. They were muddy brown. “What the heck happened to your eyes?” I yelled. Christopher threw back his head in laughter.
“Oh yes, the contacts. I forgot to take them out.” He took out the contacts and his eyes were a bright red.
I know, not my best work ever. Thanks for reading!!!
omg!!!!!! LUV IT!!!!!
