A Night to Remember
What if Bella had a twin sister named Elena? Why can't Bella remember her? Why does the same nightmare haunt Elena every night? Why does Bella feel like she's missing a vital part of her?
Chapter 1- Are you Isabella
"Ellie, do you wanna go play outside?" I asked my twin sister, Isabella.
"In a second Lena" she responded happily. Even though our parents were dead, and we had to go live with our Aunt Judith, we had each other, and we were tighter than peanut butter and chocolate.
Isabella – who preferred to be called Bella, or Ellie only by me - set her glass into the sink, grabbed her shoes and waited patiently by the front door for me.
I smiled at her, grabbed my own shoes and put them on. We danced out the front door, onto our front lawn. We grabbed our skipping ropes and started chanting
"Strawberry shortcake, apple berry pie, who's gonna be your lucky guy? A.B.C.D.E"
I got to "e" when a white van pulled into our driveway. Two men came over to us.
"Are you Isabella?" One asked
Ellie jumped into the air with her hands raised "Oh! Oh! I am! I am! What did I win?"
The two men looked at each other. "Nothing honey. We're with child services. It was your parent's last wish that you be separated from your sister."
"Why?" I asked.
"They thought that if you two grew up separately, you would have a better chance at a clean break."
"A clean break?" Ellie asked
"A clean break always heals faster honey." The other man said. Why they were explaining this to two 6 year olds was beyond me.
"I don't wanna" Ellie complained.
"You have no choice honey." They picked her up and put her in the van, then got in themselves. The van started and pulled out of my drive way. I ran after it screaming
"Ellie! Don't leave me!"
I swore I heard her say "I love you Lena, please don't forget me"
When I woke up, I was still screaming. I shoved the pillow in front of my face to muffle my hysterics. I wasn't sure why it still made my scream and cry. I've been having the exact same nightmare for 12 years. I'll never forget that day. The day that they took my twin sister away from me.
"I miss you Ellie, I wish you were here." I whispered out loud.
Bella P.O.V (note: Bella's a vampire, so it's after breaking Dawn)
"Please Edward?" I asked
"Why?" He complained
"Because I want you there?" I questioned
"Give me one good reason on why I need to go."
"Because I could get hurt."
"Uhhhh Bella? You're a vampire, you can't get hurt."
"This is me you're talking to."
"So will you?"
"Why?" he complained again.
"Because if you don't, I'll bring Jake."
He hissed so low, that if I was still human, I wouldn't have been able to hear it.
"Where exactly is Fells Church?" he asked.
"You'll see." I answered.
"And why do you want to go there of all places?"
"One because Alice and Rose are going wayyyyyy over board with the whole Bella-Barbie thing, and it's the only place I can go where they won't find me."
"Oh haha very funny. What's the second reason?"
"Okay this is gonna sound really weird but.." I hesitated
"Bella?" He asked after a few seconds of silence.
"For awhile now, I've been thinking that I'm missing something, something important from my human life, well more accurately my childhood. And I think that fells church is a good place to start to try to find it."
"Fine, I'll go. Are we leaving Ness here or at Jacob's?"
"Here's fine. I'll ask Carlisle to watch her for as few days.?"
Downstairs, I heard a door open then close.
"Beeeelllllllllla? Where are you?" Alice yelled
I turned towards Edward.
"Shhhhhh I'm not here okay?"
"Alice?" He said, he didn't say it louder than from when we were talking earlier, but I knew she would hear. And of course, she did.
"Yeah Edward?" she said back.
"Don't you dare!" I hissed
"Bella's in here" he said, smiled crookedly at me.
"No I'm not!" I yelled. I heard Alice's light footsteps on the stairs, coming towards the room.
"You are so dead later" I hissed to Edward. He only chuckled quietly. Alice slammed the door open.
"There you are Bella!"
"Here I am."
"I want to go shopping!" She said happily
"I don't." I grumbled
"Well, to tell you the truth, I don't really care about what you do and don't want to do. Besides I wasn't asking, I was stating. Let me rephrase that sentence. I'm bored. Bella, we're going shopping."
"Uhhhh Alice?" Edward said quietly
"Bella can't go with you, she has to pack."
"She has to pack?" she said slowly
"Bella wants to go somewhere for a few days." He stated calmly.
"Ohhhhh one honeymoon not enough for you guys?" she put her hand over her mouth and giggled.
"No Alice, it wasn't but that's not the point."
"Then what is?" she questioned
"Bella wants to go find a missing part of her."
"Wahoo Bella's feeling naughty!" Jasper said as he walked into the room. If I had been still human, my face would have been bright red.
"Get out Jasper!" Edward said angrily.
"Okay, Okay, I can take a hint." He smiled at me and left the room
"Ohhhh Bella's kinky!" Alice said happily.
"Get out Alice!" I hissed
"You two are so mean to me!"
"I know" Edward said
Alice grumbled under her breath, and stuck her tongue out at us.
I laughed, so did Edward.
"Fine! Be like that!" she said
"oh don't worry, we will" I said, my voice acidic
"Fine!" She turned on her heel and stalked out of the room. A few seconds later, she poked her head back into the room.
"By the way, I'll tell everyone not to bother you two for a few hours."
"Out!" Edward yelled.
Alice only laughed, her tinkling soprano fading down the stairs.
