Black Eyed Angel: Chapter 4Chapter Four- Edward
I sulked in frustration. The rest of the family had gone out to hunt, and to show Bella around. I decided to stay home and take out my irritation on my piano. I had been sitting aside the ivory keys for a good twenty minutes without playing a note. My mind was elsewhere. Why couldn't I hear her? Or could I? Was she blocking me? This had never happened to me before, I could hear everyone, every thought. But I did hear her name in the forest. Perhaps it was the close proximity...? Maybe I should try and get close to her again, just close enough to see what is behind those haunting eyes.
I decide to give up on piano for now. I suppose I could go join the others. If Bella had never hunted animals before it may be humorous to watch. Killing a human was easy. They are so easily distracted, easily taken over by beauty, b

Chapter Two: Edward
Four more hours until we would arrive in Forks. Four more hours until we start over. I suddenly wanted to drive slower.
Rose was still ahead of me by a mile or so and she thought she was going to beat me there. HA! I gave the pedal a little push and smiled at the sound of the engine. I'd let Rose stay ahead of me for long enough. I put a bit more pressure on the accelerator and soon I was just close enough to hear her thoughts. A slew of profanities entered her mind as I attempted to pass her. She jerked the wheel to the left as I moved to the right. She veered slightly to the right and I to the left. I could see the cell phone at her ear.
I don't care what Alice saw. I am going to beat you, Edward

A tranquility came over me, slipping into my fingers and washing over my body and mind. I shook my head and focused on this golden eyed couple in front of me. Carlisle Cullen had spent his existence as an outcast of sorts. In the world of vampires, he possessed an unheard of restraint. He did not prey on humans. He held a respect for human life.
"We consider ourselves to be vegetarians if you will. The animal blood is what causes our eyes to turn this golden hue, rather than the crimson you are used to."
He took my hand and spoke softly. He looked deep into my eyes. "How long has it been?"
"I haven't quite been keeping track of time, but I would guess close to ten months." I looked away. It had been ten excruciating months. I had taken so many lives in order to foster my own needs. My voice was reduced to a whisper. "I couldn't do it anymore. I couldn't take anymore."
I wanted to tell them more, but the guilt rising in my chest was preventing me from sp

It had been one month since the Cullen's had found me and taken me in. I was beginning to see a whole new side of life. Carlisle had his work at the hospital to keep him busy and playing his role as a father. Emmett, Rose, Alice, Jasper and Edward had enrolled in high school to keep up appearances. They were all changed when they were in there late teens years, looking as though they could be old enough for college, but they could pass for Seniors, maybe Juniors. In order to maintain a permanent residence here they had to act as human as possible, which is a bit harder than it sounds. They are all well practiced and can be around humans fairly comfortably. The constant rain and clouds in this part of the country made being out in public easier than most places. There wasn't a whole lot of sun here, which was nice. I have never spent so much time outside during the day

Bella and I swam to the bank of the river. We made our way to a large rock and sat in silence. There were so many things I wanted to say, so many questions I wanted to ask her. I was taken back by the peaceful silence between us. As much as I longed to hear her thoughts at this moment, I found the quiet soothing. It was so rare for me to experience silence with someone sitting next to me. I almost forgot what it feels like. I looked up to the moon, which was rapidly setting. Morning was upon us. Alice's voice entered my head. Reminding me that I would need to head home soon, for school. I looked to Bella. She had laid down with her back against the rock and her eyes were closed, wet hair clinging to her neck. I could see the small scar where she had been bitten. I couldn't help but think of what an amazing creature she was. She was beautiful, she was thoughtful, yet still a mystery to me. She opened her eyes, staring up at the sk

"Training?" I asked
"You have to start learning how to control your thirst. We just have to find a way to do it safely." Jasper replied.
"Can't you just come with me and calm me down if I can't keep it together?" I asked.
"I could, but I can't always be with you. You have to learn to do it without me. And besides, I don't just spread emotions around; I can also feel what you feel. The last thing we need is for you to push me over the edge. We'll probably have Emmett or Edward go with you. They're they strongest. They would be able to stop you from doing anything... you know." Jasper sounded sympathetic.
"So, what's the plan?"
"We were thinking of going up to Mount Rainer. Alice says that is going to be sunny next week and we won't be able to go to school. It would be a good time to go. There's a good amount of hikers this time of year. We could hide easily in the forest sta

I could not get out of the living room fast enough. Jasper felt it immediately, but his thoughts were just laughter as I fled the room. Emmett was still shouting thoughts at me from downstairs.
Nice Edward! Jazz says she is totally into you. I am soooooooooooo sorry about breaking up your little piano lesson. Maybe we should move the piano into your bedroom before the next class?
I fear that I may not soon hear the end of this. Jasper has no doubt sensed my arousal down there. Bella being so close to me brought on an unexpected effect on my body. She smelled so good. I wanted to lean in and lick her neck.
I couldn't believe my own actions. I had never been so forward with a woman. There was something in Bella that is bringing out of seventeen year old in me. I was always nervous around her. I said stupid thing

Once again, I was hiding out in my room. I could hear music coming from upstairs, from Edward's room. Radiohead... He must be listening to one of the CD's I gave to him. Part of me wanted to join him, but I felt nervous and awkward after last night. I wish I knew how he felt about me. I knew that I was beyond attracted to him physically, but there was something else, something so much more that I couldn't explain. When I looked into his eyes last night, I felt like I was looking into his soul, and I let him look into mine. It was the most intense thing I have ever experienced.
I could hear Alice outside the door.
"Come in," I called out.
My door opened and she walked in hand in hand with Jasper, giving me a confused look.
"I am going to have to teach you a thing or two about fashion Bella. I'll be in the closet."
She rushed over and came out a few seconds later and handed me a navy blue sweater and a pair of black jeans.

We had been planning our move to Forks, Washington before the visions started. A quick glimpse of her eyes shifting in her face, her shaking hands and the visions became intense, filled with sadness or a hopelessness that radiated from the very sight of her. The frequency and urgency of the visions was disconcerting, yet no one else seemed to be phased, not even Edward. No doubt he had taken notice and I hadn't bothered trying to hide it from him. He and Carlisle both reminded me that we had run into other vampires many times in the past, but something felt different about this one. This was more like a reoccurring nightmare than one of my usual mental images. For now I have resigned to the fact that we must focus on our move, and hope that in time something more will reveal itself.
I looked up at Rosalie and smiled. "I'm not taking that much.

"Edward! Let's go!" Emmett shouted.
"He's not going. Come on, it's Rosalie's turn to drive." Alice replied, grabbing his shoulder and rushing him out the door.
I rushed to Carlisle's study; he sensed me outside and asked me to join him.
"What's on your mind son?" He asked.
I didn't know how to start. I wasn't sure what I was feeling. I couldn't even look up at him.
"It's Bella..." was all I was able to utter.
She has had quite an affect you, hasn't she?
He was trying not to smile, wondering to himself what kind of advise I seek from him.
"I guess I wanted to speak to you about her gift." I stammered out.
"Yes, it is an interesting ability she possesses. Has she asked for your help yet?"
"Yes, we've umm... realized a few things. She can push it from herself. When she extended it over me, I could hear her thoughts. Well, we can hear each other..."
That must have been odd for you?

I felt Jasper's fingers run through my hair. "Alice Is it her again?"
I nodded slowly, my eyes coming back into focus. "It's becoming clear. She is a vampire."
This vision... The scene played out in my head for the first time today, but I had seen it before, many times before. What was once a blurry image was coming into focus more and more each time I saw it. I had seen her face but never with this much intensity, she had not opened her eyes before today. Without any conscious thought or effort, the black eyes appear in my mind. Her bloodless ashen skin and the nebulous dark eyes could only be that of an immortal.
"She opened her eyes So dark Even the whites of her eyes seem to be turning black." I shook my head and took a breath.

Chapter 12: Bella
"It will be fine, Bella," Alice said as she flitted over to the couch and sat next to Jasper. "I'm seeing it very clearly. We'll be leaving early, so we should go hunt soon."
We had planned my training, deciding to leave in the morning for Mt. Rainer to hike and camp on Saturday and Sunday. Everyone was going, and I was nervous. Alice, Jasper, and I had decided to leave first. We ran to the north and fed on whatever we came across. I glutted myself on several deer and an elk. Alice and I sat and waited for Jasper, who was chasing a cougar.
"I need to ask you a favor," I said. She looked back at me and smirked.
"Yes, I'll help you test you gift," she answered.
"I don't know if it means anything, but I could hear Edward's thoughts when I pushed my shield over him." She closed her eyes and then looked at me curiously.
"Try to push it over me," she said.

The next few months went by quicker than any previous months in my ninety years. Having Bella in my life often made me wonder if I was truly immortal. Maybe I had died and gone to heaven, or perhaps Bella was right; this was a fairly tale. I laughed to myself. This whole experience had opened my eyes to something beyond what I thought my life was. I understood my family so much more than I ever had before. I used to get so easily frustrated at their constant little disappearing acts. I never fathomed how much I would feel the need for anyone else. Bella and I had spent most free moments in our room. We explored each other's bodies, we talked for hours, we sat and listened to the rain, and she always made me laugh. I may have laughed and smiled more since I had met Bella than I had in years. I didn't mind the relentless teasing from my brothers, and I didn't even mind school. The thought of Bella soon joining me made school not such a bad place.

As we walked into the house I kept my shield on Edward. I was enjoying reading Alice's thoughts of him at the disco, and laughed out loud as she pictured him doing the hustle.
He grimaced. "Not you too!"
"Sorry, I couldn't help myself," I replied, grabbing him from behind and hugging him tightly. "You were right, you can dance."
"I told you so," he replied, turning to face me. His arms wrapped around my waist and he smelled my hair, as we walked upstairs to his room and sat on the sofa.
"Bella, you did so incredibly well this weekend. We're all very impressed. Seeing how you did, I wanted to ask you something," he paused taking my hand. "I feel silly even asking, because I have seen it in your thoughts, but... What do you think about enrolling in high school?"
"I have been thinking about it," I replied, smiling at him. "I would really like that, but I'm worried. Do you think I can handle it?"
"Yes, I do. I wouldn't dream of suggesting

Edward opened the door, allowing Carlisle and Esme to enter the room.
"Sorry we're late," Carlisle said. "We wanted to stop in to see how things were going?"
"Things are going well; Bella has done great so far. I think we are done for today, and we plan to try again in the morning," Edward said, running his hand through his hair.
Esme came to my side and put her arms around me. "How are you, Bella?"
As always, Esme brought me a sense of comfort. I was starting to feel more like myself already. I turned and hugged her.
"I'm fine," I told her, sitting on the bed and looking down into my lap. Esme walked over to Carlisle, kissed him on the cheek and said, "Boys, why don't you give Bella and me a minute."
Carlisle nodded. "Of course, take your time. Come on, Edward, Emmett brought the Wii. We need to go show Jasper how to really play House of the Dead."

There she stood; her confidence staggering. How could this be? Where was the bloodlust? Her control confounded me. She had even made eye contact with one of them! I watched as she stopped and I felt her waver. She put her hands to her knees, and as she opened her mouth, venom gushed. There was a feeling of distress in the air, and I followed as Edward pounced to her side. I started focusing on a serene feeling and I pushed it toward her.
Edward, be ready. We may have to restrain her.
He nodded, but Bella raised one hand to us. "I'm alright. I'm not going to do anything."
She continued to spit the venom to the ground. The combination of emotions in the air was confusing to me. There was worry, determination, concern, envy, pride... I couldn't distinguish who was feeling what. Edward put his hand on her back before he spoke.
"Don't worry. This happens. It is your body's natural reaction to the humans. It should stop in a moment."

If I never shopped again it would be too soon. Once Alice had a clear vision of me starting school, she had begun a rash of shopping: school clothes, supplies, shoes, accessories, and anything else she could think of. We made our last stop at the Apple store, where I used my shiny black card for the first time to buy myself a laptop and an iPod. Alice and I grabbed our bags and started walking out of the store.
"Tomorrow after school, we have to drive to Olympia. They have a much better selection of stores." Alice said.
"No more shopping please! I can't take any more." I said.
We piled all of the bags into the trunk and I turned toward the passenger side door, looking up to see a man in dark sunglasses approaching the car. I knew immediately that he wasn't human. He was a vampire. He removed his glasses and I recognized his eyes; red and beady, filled with blood, I gasped. It only took me a second to recall where

Emmett was growling in frustration when we pulled up to the house to see Rose's car in the driveway.

That is the last time I listen to you.
"I only told you what Rose and Alice were thinking. They were both thinking about the bringing Bella to that club in Seattle tonight. Did you see how they were dressed? They were definitely planning on going out dancing. They must have gone somewhere else." I explained.
"We went to every club in Seattle," he replied as I parked the car. He was fuming as he got out and stalked off toward the front door. Jasper and I followed. He threw the door open to see Rose sitting on the couch reading a magazine. She looked up at us slowly. Jasper quickly ran upstairs and I was just about to follow.

For weeks I trained with each member of the family coaching me and guiding me, Jasper especially. We utilized the technique I had used to help him, with results I could never have imagined. I found I could actually push away feelings of bloodlust. I could control myself. I could live again.
This was the day I would attempt to go out into the world. Assured by Alice that I would be fine, I felt a gigantic weight lifted off my shoulders. Yes, I was nervous, but mostly I was excited. I couldn't wait any longer. After everyone left for school, Esme and I began our day. We were starting at the hardware store. She needed to shop for a new project of hers, and Carlisle was working the late shift, so he was joining us. I got into the back seat of the Mercedes and we made our way to Olympia.

Alice was throwing clothes at me from my closet.
"What are we doing tonight? Where are we going?" I asked.
"It's a surprise. Oh! Wear these boots! Get dressed and meet me in the garage," Alice said, rushing out of the room.
I checked to see what clothes Alice had picked out, and found a very small tank top, a pair of jeans, and a pair of knee high black boots with two inch heels. I took a deep breath, got dressed, quickly ran a brush through my hair, and decided to leave it down. Leaving my room, I headed to the garage to find Edward was standing in the doorway with his head down. When he looked up at me, his mouth opened but he didn't say anything. I walked over to him and put my arms around his neck, burying my head in his chest and heard him sigh. His arms began to squeeze me, tighter than he had ever held me before.

The feeling of the wind in my hair made me smile; I hadn't run this far in a long time. Bella and I ventured out to hunt and ended up just running until we were well into Canada. I stopped to see Bella crouched a few feet from me. A strong heartbeat came to my ears, and we feasted on moose. I had to laugh at Bella's newly torn shirt.
"What the hell did you rip it on?" I asked jokingly.
"Antlers, I guess..." Bella said, laughing at herself. "God, I am so full. I don't want to move."
I stood and looked down at the carcass at our feet. I took hold of a nearby tree, lifting and uprooting it, making a grave for what had been our meal.
"I wish Emmett was here, I usually make him take care of this shit." I huffed and moved the corpse, placing the tree back down, pushing it into the earth before I sat next to her.
"I have a bone to pick with you, Miss Bella."

The look on Sam's face didn't change. Edward pulled me toward him and held me close. I could feel a sense of calm, probably coming from Jasper, and anger coming from Edward; his breaths were fast and ragged. Alice was rubbing her temples, struggling to see what would happen.

Alice was waiting for me in the hall. "Don't be such a baby. You'll see her tomorrow and believe me it will be worth the wait."

Teaching Emmett to use my gift was going to be interesting. I decided that it would be best to give him one skill at a time, starting with mind reading. After just a few minutes he was already bored and begging for more.
"Bella, don't hold back on me. I won't destroy the house, I promise."
I smiled. "I can see what's going to happen you know." I could see it as clear as day- Emmett was planning on throwing us all around. He didn't intend to wreck the house, but it was sure to happen. He also wanted to get payback on me for our little wrestling match, but he didn't realize I could use my shield against him.
