My Past Is Your Demise

First off, I am NOT a Twilight Fan. I am actually a hater. This story isn't meant to mock Twilight. It's meant to show a version where haters and lovers will both love/read!

Summary:
"You weren't there for me," I cried in agony.

When Edward left Bella, something snapped...

The strength of a human only lasted so much. After being bitten, Bella was reborn and changed. She changed her name to Amira, became an assassin and now has a team. Swearing revenge on the creatures she once loved, the Cullens better watch out.

Because they're just pawns in a much bigger game and when it's over, they'll all be dead...

18. Chapter 17: Betrayal

I'm thinking of writing a side story after I'm done the series. It's probably going to be a spinoff of My Past Is Your Demise. There isn't going to be Amira in it. The main character is Red because I never did explain about the past. There isn't a definite title yet and I still have to make one, but I'm coming up empty.

Here's a new chapter with less of an AN than the last one.

 

My Past Is Your Demise: Chapter 17

Chapter 17: Betrayal

            Amira’s POV:

            My nose twitched from the smell of another vampire.

            Alice.

            I felt Red tense up beside me, in anxiety. Normally, I would’ve snapped at her to loosen up, but I was in the same state. We were both finding our own solutions for Edward’s arrival. Red’s face was scrunched up, but so was mine.

            I looked at the expression in her eyes.

            Anger. Seething anger.

            Alice’s gaze quickly lingered on Red, not noticing me. She would obviously have some questions for me, but answering them would be a stupid mistake.

            There’s Red! Who’s that? Her thoughts were full of confusion when it came to my presence.

            Since I still looked like a human, Alice didn’t recognize me. I had my red hair and blue eyes. I liked to think of the look as an alter ego. It was certainly interesting to look like a completely different person.

            “Red, I’m sorry! I wasn’t going to tell Edward but when he passed me, he read my mind! He’s on his way here now. You better get Derek out of here!” Her voice was nearly hysterical.

            I raised one of my eyebrows at her. I wasn’t supposed to know about vampirism and she practically spilled it all in a simple paragraph.

            Her face morphed into embarrassment and horror. “Hello,” she squeaked nervously. “I was just...”She trailed off before running away. Red looked like she could barely contain any laughter. Even though we were about to be sabotaged, she still had her sense of humor intact.

            I looked around curiously. I didn’t see Alice, but I could still smell her.

            Suddenly a wave of light ran through my brain. I saw Edward come in. I saw him grab Arianna and start yelling. People started clearing out from the deranged vampire. And the worst part? I saw Red moving in front of Derek to save our cover, but taking Edward’s blow to the face.

            “What?” Red asked in a hushed whisper.

            “It’s Alice. She just had a vision. That’s why she had to leave,” I replied nonchalantly.

            Distrust colored in her deep blue eyes, but it quickly faded. What was with Red that intrigued me so much? Was it that we thought in the same perspective? Why do you seem so familiar? I thought with slight annoyance at my lack of memory.

            Red noticed my monologue and nudged my shoulder with a pale hand. Are you ok? She seemed to think. I shrugged her hand off, ignoring her question.

            “Tell me about it, or show me.” Red spoke up suddenly.

            I didn’t want to tell her she would be hurt by Edward so I replied with a, “what are you talking about?”

            Red narrowed her eyes slightly and stared me down. “You know. The vision. Show me what happened. I know it’s something bad. That’s why you refuse to look at me, isn’t it?” She cocked her head to the side with confidence at her accusation.

            I felt my hands clench. “Fine,” I replied shortly. “I saw Edward come in. Everyone freaked out. And you end up in a coma.” I saw the alarmed expression on Red’s face. “Well, I’m assumed you go into a coma. You do get hit by Edward...”

            “Why? Does Edward hit me intentionally?”

            “No, you move into his line of fire because he’s about to sock Derek in the face. Now listen well, you are in no circumstances allowed to divert Edward’s attention. Derek can take a hit but...” My voice faltered.

            “But what? I’m so sick of you being so cryptic all the time!”

            I drew in a long breath. “You will die if he hits too hard and breaks your neck. Forget about what I said then. Go ahead and get yourself killed,” I rasped while standing up.

            I walked to the bathroom, ignoring the stares of the other customers. Before I walked in, I felt a hand on my shoulder. I swear, if it wasn’t a public place your head would be used as a bowling ball! I thought in anger.

            I whipped around, glaring. The boy behind me looked arrogant and –to me- disgusting. “Hey. Would you go on a date with me?” His voice was low and it made me want to throw up.

            He had black hair and pale skin. His skin almost matched mine. I wondered why some people found unhealthy pale skin attractive. I was just thankful he was my age.

            “No. Move your hand before I kick you so hard you’ll never have kids,” I threatened humorlessly.

            He just chuckled throatily. His grey eyes were full of amusement. “You know, a pretty girl like you shouldn’t make threats like-” He never did finish the sentence.

I raised my leg and kicked him where it would really hurt. Be thankful I only used an eight of my strength, I thought before leaving him in pain.

What sucks about being a vampire? You get hit on everywhere you go, I thought with discomfort. It was truly sickening to know that some people just couldn’t take a hint.

            I heard his moans through the doors of the bathroom. I couldn’t help from chuckling and thinking about my past life. Bella would’ve probably just blushed and giggled like the loser she was. I shouldn’t have been thinking about her.

            “Excuse me!” An obnoxious male voice shook me out of my thoughts. From his voice, I could tell a lot of things from him…

            One, he was arrogant. There was no doubt about it. It was the cocky tone in his voice. Another thing was that he was probably good looking by human standards. That was why he was cocky. And he was also probably someone of authority or rich. It explained the fierceness in his voice. It would take years of yelling at secretaries and other workers to achieve the tone.

            I would know, I thought while laughing at all the memories of yelling at the Night Shadowers.

            I swung the door open, almost hitting the man in the face. I scowled when he moved away from getting whacked in the face. “Can I help you?” My voice was laced with sarcasm.

            “One of my best customers has a complaint. Grant, come here!” I took note that the male spoke with decency to Grant.

            “Yeah, Carlo?” Grant answered in a slightly pained voice. I recognized him as the male I hurt. I shot him a gloating look, while he scowled.

The man –Carlo– had tanned skin and a Spanish edge to his words. He shook his black, curly hair in irritation. I looked at him, analyzing the twenty year old man.

            “Are you staring at me?” His mouth curved into a smirk, which made me scowl. He turned his brown eyes over to Grant. “Isn’t this the woman who attacked you?

            I rolled my eyes. “Don’t flatter yourself. I’m just thinking about the places I can hit to put you in a coma,” I replied sweetly.

            Instead of being scared, Carlo just grinned.

Sometimes I really hate being a girl! No one would take someone like me seriously. Just because I looked like an innocent model, didn’t mean I couldn’t pack a punch. I hissed in frustration.

“Yeah, it is,” Grant confirmed. He turned to me with a wiggle of his eyebrow. “If you go on a date with me, I’ll forget this ever happened.” His eyes were full of manipulation and deceit.

You think you’re all that cunning? I’m the queen of lies and cheat, I thought. I smiled, acting like I was grateful. “Well, Grant, is it?” I giggled like a schoolgirl and made my voice sugary sweet.

“You got that right.” He threw a lazy smirk in my direction.

“I wouldn’t date you if my life was at stake,” I finished in the same sweet tone. “Now if we’re done here, I’d like to finish my meal.” I walked briskly by the two poor excuses of male.

“Now hold up!” Carlo growled in his Mexican accent. “I am the manager and I have full authority and I can throw you out.” He spoke as if I should’ve been worried.

I gave him a disbelieving look as I continued back to Red. “Then you obviously don’t know who I am. I have the power to run you out of business. Don’t believe me? Continue with your threat then,” I drawled out slowly. “I. Dare. You.”

When I didn’t hear a reply, I let out a short laugh. “What happened to you?” A bell-like voice asked behind me.

“Some men just couldn’t take a hint,” I answered without turning around. I knew it was Alice.

Her face was less pale due to the dimly lit restaurant. Its walls were a red velvet color and reminded me more like a horror movie scene. I didn’t understand how this was one of the best restaurants in New York.

Alice chucked heartily. “When you find a boyfriend, he’ll tear apart every man who gives you a lingering glance. I would know. I have a hu–boyfriend named Jasper,” she sighed dreamily.

I felt myself wanting to say, ‘I know,’ but held it in. “You’re lucky. I’m not really looking for love,” I put in with a tone that ended the conversation.

I wondered why she was talking to me. “I know Red told you about vampirism…” She trailed off, not knowing my name.

“Kari, like the country singer. And yeah, she did. I didn’t really believe her at first, but now I do. Don’t worry about me spilling, I promise I won’t.” The lies came so effortlessly.

She looked indifferent, like she knew that was what I was going to say. “You look so much like Derek. He’s over there,” she pointed out, gesturing over to Arianna’s table.

“He’s my brother,” I replied easily. “And between you and me, I think Arianna doesn’t deserve him.” I snickered, knowing he liked Red. Red deserved love, especially after being lonely for so long.

She nodded in confirmation and while we were exchanging laughs, the front door swung open and a cold air filled the room. Everyone became silent as they took in Edward’s pale face and black eyes.

Rage. I had never seen that amount of anger in anyone’s eyes, except mine.

He stalked towards Arianna. She looked at him with an alarmed face and turned her head. Her eyes set on Red as she got up, momentarily forgetting Edward.

I forgot about Alice, as I rushed to Red.

When I got to Red, Arianna was still coming forward. She raised her arm to slap Red. I contemplated on helping Red, but she could defend herself. Red swiftly slapped Arianna first and grabbed Arianna’s hand before any harm could happen.

The rest of the customers gazed at us like we were some movie. I took in how stupid they were. We weren’t some circus act. People would get seriously hurt if they didn’t clear out.

Arianna recoiled a few steps back. She moved her other hand to her bright red cheek. She opened her mouth to scream, but someone else already did. Alice, being the benign one, turned her direction to the customers.

“Everyone, clear out! I’m so sorry for this but if you don’t leave, you’ll be hurt. I’ll personally pay for any damages!” She yelled in a voice that rang with sincerity.

No one seemed to pay her any attention. “Hey idiots! Get out before I have to personally make you,” I growled in a feral tone.

When people still didn’t move, I grabbed the closest chair and split it in half with an effortless kick. That seemed to get people’s attention. Some people were screaming and the staff were desperately trying to take order. Even the staff had to leave eventually from fear of Edward.

When it was just the six of us left, Edward started his rant again. He stared at me for a second, as if trying to recognize me.

“Who are you?” His voice was deadly.

“Derek’s sister,” I answered, not intimated at all.

“Edward, I can explain!” Arianna cut in, trying desperately to calm him down.

“Oh really? Enlighten me then,” he sneered back. My face screwed up in confusion. I had never seen this side to Edward before.

“Uh…” She was at a loss for words. I felt like I should’ve done something, but I didn’t. “Derek forced me on this date! He said he was going to kill my m-mom,” she lied with guilt in her eyes.

Edward looked at her like he believed her. I scoffed at his idiocy.

 Edward didn’t move –at first–, but his eyes lingered on Derek’s. He looked like he was about to hurt Derek. He moved over, which caused Derek to jump out of his seat. Edward raised his fist and Derek looked prepared to fight back. Their hands twitched in anticipation.

I caught Red’s expression and I knew Alice’s vision was going to come true if I didn’t do something.

I tapped Edward on the shoulder as I let the mask come off...

Suddenly, the dark walls just became darker and the shocked yelling started.

           I just want to say this is a scene I really wanted to write ever since I started this story! The next chapter is going to be so fun to read and I can say it was really fun to write! I'm also writing chapter 21 and it's going to be explaining more about Red so if you read on FanFiction.Net, leave me a review or an inspiring PM to get me to write faster!
