I walked across the linoleum floor of the room as I went to the door. As I went by, a scent caught my attention and stopped me in my tracks. I turned and followed the scent and it took me to a table with five chairs. A normal human wouldn’t have found anything wrong, but I found it astonishing. Why, the scent was of five different vampires. Perhaps a coven. But the thought of a coven, that too with five was ……. . I let my thought trail off.
Then a grin stretched across my face. If a coven lived here, I was going to find them. Maybe if a few of my kind were here then school wouldn’t be so bad. I quickly followed the scent, leaped outside the window and took off running. The scent took me to a thick forested area and just when I was about to give up, a beautiful house up front stopped my breath.
It wasn’t like any other house I’d seen. It was three storeys high and the west side of the house only seemed to be made of glass. I walked up the porch steps and rang the doorbell. A woman with caramel coloured hair and a pale heart shaped face opened the door.
“Hi, I’m Bella Swan. So are you the vampire family?”
The woman had a dumbstruck expression on her face. From the looks of it, it was clear she was not expecting such an outbreak from me.
“I’m sorry if I scared you. I had gone for a night visit to my school. I couldn’t help noticing the scent and it naturally made me curious.”
“Of course, that’s alright”, she said. “I’m Esme and I live with my family here. Please come inside.”
“Thank you and by the way you have a wonderful home.”
“Thanks so much dear”, she said. I walked into the house and took in all the grandness. It was clear they were very rich. And sitting in the living room were five youngsters.
“These are my children”, she said. She pointed to a boy with bronze coloured and introduced him as Edward, and then she pointed to a girl with inky black hair that was cut short and pointing in every direction as Alice. She was extremely small, almost pixie-like. The next one she introduced was a boy, but he looked more like a weight lifter, with dark brown curly hair. His name was Emmett. Next, came Rosalie who was blond with hair that gently waved till her shoulders. She was unbelievably gorgeous. And last was Jasper, who had blond hair and looked as if he was in pain.
A man came down the steps, obviously their father who had blond hair that perfectly matched his eyes and were a shade darker than his hair.
“Everyone, this is Bella Swan, daughter of the chief. She had gone to school and had caught our scent, that’s why she came here”, Esme said introducing me.
“Nice to meet you all”, I said. “I’m sorry if I bothered you, I was just a little bit curious as to know who was in the area.”Everyone were looking at me strangely and I didn’t understand the expression. “Is something wrong?” I asked. I felt uncomfortable with them staring at me, so I controlled their minds.
“Stop staring at me”, I thought. Everyone suddenly looked away.
“Carlisle, she’s gifted”, Edward said with a note of admiration in his voice. “She can control minds. Have you ever heard of such a gift?”
