CHAPTER 1

June 8th 2010.

Bright sun beams cascaded across the gently rolling waves of the sea in an intricate pattern that took my breath away. It was an unusually sunny day in forks and I took advantage by spending my time on la push beach, re reading my favourite book for what has to be the twentieth time, it was days like these that brought me a sense of inner peace, I knew that without them I'd be in a constant state of stress. The pack were one of my only other reprieves, they had helped me through a lot of things and had been there for me no matter what. They were my family now, and I loved them all more than anything. It had been almost two years since the Cullen's left and completely ripped my life apart, and despite the fact that I had come to terms with what they had done to me, it still hurt deeply to think that they could leave me behind so easily. Like I meant absolutely nothing to them. It made me feel common, and disposable. If it wasn't for Jake and the rest of the pack I doubt I would've gotten through the last few years. After the Cullen's left, everything went downhill very quickly. The reappearance of Victoria set events into motion that I doubt even Alice would have foreseen. It started off when I was hiking, I was trying to find Edwards meadow and Jake had promised to help, but he had been busy with the pack that day so I decided to go myself. I managed to find the meadow, but I also found Laurent. I had thought that he had finally come to take me to Victoria so she could get her revenge for what happened with James. But I was very wrong.

15 months earlier.

I slowly stood up out of my crouched position as a lone figure slowly walked forward from the north. Excitement raced through me, I've finally found what I've been looking for. Edward's come back to me! I almost laughed with glee as I stared hungrily at the distant figure across the meadow.

As he moved closer I realised how wrong I was. A crushing disappointment wrapped its way around my heart until I was struggling to breathe. Get it together Bella! I mentally chastised myself. I looked the new comer over, quickly realising who was in front of me. A tall black man, dressed in shabby torn clothes and no shoes with thick hip length dread locks was stood in front of me. But, instead of the piercing red eyes that would scare me to my very soul, was a light butterscotch colour that I had been dreaming of every night for the last four months. A tiny sob left my throat as I stared up at the man in from of me.

"Laurent" I whispered gently.

Laurent had been part of James' coven. But he had never partaken in the hunt to kill me. Instead, he gave us a warning and left for Alaska to join Edwards extended family who were also vegetarians. I had assumed that he would be here to kill me, but now I wasn't so sure. Since his eyes were amber he obviously wasn't hunting humans any more.

"Bella" he said with a tiny smile.

"I've come to give you a warning, and I'll trust you to think about it wisely" he said seriously. I gave a sharp jerky nod, my heart thumping noisily in my chest.

"O-of course" I stuttered out.

"Victoria's coming for you Bella. She's wanted to kill you since your vampires killed James. An eye for an eye and all that. Stay with your vampires at all times, I'm sure they will protect you" he said worriedly. I frowned slightly. He obviously didn't know that the Cullen's had left months ago. I debated slightly over wether or not I should tell him the truth. It was possible that he was only saying these things to find out the truth, so he could kill me himself. On the other hand, if he was telling the truth, maybe he could help me escape Victoria. I hesitated before finally telling him what happened.

"The Cullen's.. they left a few months ago. I don't know where they are now, I haven't spoken to them since last September" I said, a slight quiver to my voice conveying my sadness to the lone vampire.

A tiny frown marred his beautiful face as he thought about my words.

"That is very troubling. It may be best for you to leave forks then, and go back to your mothers maybe. I doubt even Victoria would be stupid enough to follow you to somewhere so sunny. She wouldn't risk exposure like that. Although, I can't say she won't plan out something else" He abruptly sat down on the grass and motioned for me to do the same.

"You need to be very careful Bella. Because she will come, but you can count me as an Ally. When I moved to Alaska to meet the Denali's I found my mate in one of the succubi sisters, Irina. I don't believe you've had the pleasure of meeting her?" He asked one of his eyebrows shooting up. He carried on speaking when I mutely shook my head no.

"Well, when we first met we realised we were true mates right away and I quickly decided to take on the vegetarian diet for her. I will admit, it is the hardest thing I have ever done, but it is definitely worth it" he said with a tiny smile.

"Things were going well for a awhile until Victoria showed up and asked for my help, she explained what she wanted to do and I told her I'd help her with her plans. We decided to meet up in Seattle a few weeks later so we could figure out what to do, in that time, I spoke to Irina and her family and told them what Victoria said. We decided I should come here and warn you about Victoria's plans. And let you know that our family will always be there for you if you are in need." He finished speaking with a slight smile. I could tell from his facial expressions whilst he was talking about Irina and her family that he was telling the truth, he truly loved these people and would do anything for them. We sat on the grass in silence for several minutes both of us deep in thought, when Laurent entered the meadow I hadn't been expecting anything like this. Although I was grateful for his support. A few moments later, Laurent reached into his jacket and pulled out a scrap of paper which he then handed to me.

"This is a list of numbers for you to get in contact with my family. My number is at the top, please, feel free to text or call me whenever you feel like it. I would dearly love to get to know you Bella. Also, I want you to know, two red eyed vampires will be coming to visit you at your home in the next few days. They are friends of mine, and you should know they mean you no harm. They are family to Jasper, and would never dream of harming you. They just wish to help you with whatever you need. They have a lot of fighting experience after fighting in the southern vampire wars at the beginning of their immortal lives" he told me. I wasn't too confused as the southern vampire wars had briefly been explained to me so I knew a bit about them. However I was still rather worried about two strange vampires coming to pay me a visit, but if they were friends of Jasper and Laurent then I'd at least meet them.

"Thank you so much for this Laurent. I don't even want to think what could have happened if you didn't come to warn me" I whispered brokenly. He crawled over to me and wrapped his arm around my shoulder, pulling me into a gentle hug.

"We may not know each other all that well, but I will always thank you for your part in destroying James. I know it may not have been you that killed him, but you played a part in it and for that I am truly grateful. I will forever be in your debt. Now, I must go. I need to go back to Denali to see my family. Please, get in contact with me very soon. I will come down to see you whenever I can, be careful little swan" he said gently before running off into the forest. I smiled slightly, feeling more hopeful than I had in a long time.

Current day.

After that day, things changed considerably for me. I met Peter and Charlotte two days after Laurent's warning and I became great friends with the both of them. They were admirable people, or vampires, and had been there for me for a long time. After a few months of constant texting between the three of us, they finally decided it was time to move away from Texas. They moved into a secluded house in the middle of the woods, we spent most days together when I wasn't with Jake and the boys. When the pack found out about them living in forks they were understandably angry about the situation, but after months of putting up with each other they had become friends, however begrudgingly. Peter and Charlotte had helped the quileutes realise that vampires weren't just mindless killers, but actual people. It had taken a lot of work but they eventually came around. Peter and Charlotte were allowed on quileute land and often attended bonfires and parties held at Emily's house. I had found a true family in these people and I hadn't been this happy in a long time. Although thinking about Charlie still hurt. Not long after Peter and Charlotte moved to forks, Victoria came to my house whilst I was at a bonfire in la push. She killed Charlie in cold blood and left his dead body in my living room as a reminder that she was still coming for me. I spent the next few months in a deep depression, but I didn't let it affect my life as I had last time. I knew Charlie wouldn't want me to give up on school or my future plans for college just because he died. So, I tried my hardest to do well in school and get the best grades I could. I knew if he was still here, he would be very proud of me.

As the sun slowly drifted behind a cluster of grey clouds, I decided to make my way back to Emily's. I was done living in the past, I had just graduated high school and it was time to move on with my life. I knew my family would always be there for me, no matter what.
