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...

My Past Is Your Demise: Chapter 18

Chapter 18: Inside the Truth... Hides More Lies

            “Bella,” Edward breathed in a temporary daze.

            I flinched from the recognition. Was that all I was? Just some ghost from his past? That was his reaction?

            What do you expect? Him to kiss the ground you walk on? He did leave you, I thought to myself. I couldn’t help but feel completely uncomfortable at his stare.

            I quickly remembered why I gave myself up in the first place. “Red? Don’t you dare!” I looked over at her.

            “Fine! But I’m still going to beat the daylights out of this,” she snickered, gesturing to Arianna.

            “Edward, do something!” Arianna’s voice was frantic under Red’s glare.

            Edward didn’t move. Not even an inch. He was still frozen in shock at my presence.

            I stopped looking at Red and even contemplated on consoling Edward. But all the memories flooded back in...

            “I will always love you,” the memory of Edward swore.

            “You’re part of the family,” the memory of Esme declared warmly.

            “Hey little sis!” Emmett bellowed.

            That was a lie. They all were. Remember what they did to you, Amira. My conscience was telling me what to do.

            “No,” I snapped, my voice void of any emotion. “Leave my friends alone.” I looked over at Derek’s frozen face. He didn’t know what was going on. I sent a mental thought to Derek, I’ll explain later.

            “Why?” Edward asked brokenly. His voice was hoarse and all anger was gone.

            I couldn’t help but shoot him a smug look. “I don’t owe you anything,” I replied carelessly, picking at my cuticles. I could tell Edward and Alice were close to exploding.

            “Yes, you do! Does the fact that you tried to destroy us ring a bell?” Alice used that as a counter. I didn’t even bother to answer that.

            “Listen here Alice,” I spat her name like it was poison. “You’ll see me again soon enough.” Her thoughts filled with questions I would never answer.

            I didn’t elaborate.

            Suddenly a shriek escaped someone’s lips. We all turned our heads to Arianna. She was on the ground, Red on top. Her nose was bleeding and Red was effectively punching her. Arianna looked like she took pretty hard hits, but she delivered some too.

            Suddenly, Red was thrown off by Edward. Her shoulder suffered the fall as she groaned. That was what triggered Derek’s anger.

Great, I thought. Let the fight begin!

            The only thing Derek had was Edward’s underestimation. Edward still thought Derek was a human. I trusted Derek to fight well. After all, I did train him –and all the rest of the Night Shadowers– personally.

            Edward was faster, but Derek was probably stronger. Edward? Powers... Mind reading! I knew I forgot something! I cursed, putting my shield around Derek quickly.

            While Edward was preoccupied at Derek’s silent mind, Derek landed a punch on Edward’s ribs. Edward just stared, shocked that Derek wasn’t crying in pain.

            “Vampire,” he snarled.

Derek shot him a smug smile. “Heck yeah. Are you sure you can still take me?”

            Edward had no chance of living if Derek wanted to kill him. I forgot to tell Red about Derek’s power...

            Blue fire, I thought. He was a fire bender and a really good one.

His fire was blue though, which somehow made it even stronger than red. It was a fire that couldn’t be extinguished with water because it was made out of a mix of both elements.

He could probably incinerate Edward on the spot, but that would’ve been no fun.

            Edward only hissed in anger. Without warning, Derek landed a kick against Edward’s shin. Edward fell forward and clutched it while leaving the top of his head and neck exposed. Do you really think you can take a top notch assassin? I thought over his idiocy.

            The bruises were forming on Edward’s porcelain skin. Derek was still free of wounds though. That just showed how awful Edward was at fighting.

            I felt restless and alive again. That was something Tanya showed me during a fight.

 “Hey D? Why don’t you let me take over?”

“Sure, and Amira?” He looked at me with happiness.

“Yeah?” I held boredom in my voice.

“You so owe me an explanation, but make him cry.” He smiled at the suggestion.

“Then you should know me,” I replied smartly, looking happy.

Edward looked angry. “I can’t fight a girl! Especially if she’s my ex!” He looked close to soiling his pants. I didn’t know he was such a wimp. When we were together, he always acted so superior.

“Why, are you scared?” I taunted.

I didn’t give him a chance to reply as I elbowed him in the ribs. “Please Bella, I still love you!” He wheezed. I felt my heart breaking all over again.

“Then it’s a good thing I don’t,” I answered with enough coldness to freeze Florida. I took his heartbroken daze to kick off his chest and land with a perfect front flip.

Arianna probably heard the declaration because I heard a scream and muffled sob.

            Then the screech of a chair and a phone rang through my ears. My eyes landed on Arianna’s brown ones. Her phone was out and she was halfway to the door. “Oh, no you don’t, you worthless b-” Red yelled.

            “Derek, take over,” I ordered. I needed to see what Arianna was doing, or the plan would fail.

            All my hard work...

            She lunged for Arianna, knocking her from the ground. I found the scene quite amusing. Red was beating Arianna senseless and Edward couldn’t even protect her.

            Edward... I thought with a pang of pain.

            Since I couldn’t stop the fight, I just made it worse. “What’s wrong Edward? You like seeing your girlfriend get beat up to a pulp?” I cackled like a witch. When Edward turned his head, I yelled “Derek, now!”

            Using all his force, Derek punched Edward across the face.

            He tapped out? Who knew? I thought with curiosity.

            “I’ve always wanted to do this to you. Ever since I met you,” Red snarled at Arianna. She had a colorful array of bruises and scratches, courtesy of Arianna. Wow, she can fight? I thought, astounded.

            I felt like I was forgetting something, though. I sniffed the air.

Alice.

The Cullens weren’t supposed to know about me yet. Sometimes amnesia worked, but it was a chance I couldn’t take. Too bad I didn’t have a memory loss power.

I looked around for Alice and saw her in a corner, watching us. I made myself invisible and crept up behind her.

Calm down, I thought.

It’s all going to be fine...

            And that was when I hit her on the head as hard as I could. She fell to the ground without any resistance.

            I couldn’t help but feel sorry for her. I ignored it though, and threw her body on the floor like it was a ragdoll. She looked so peaceful and kind, even with the bruise on her forehead.

            “I’ll kill you! All of you! You’ll be sorry and Edward will have your heads hung on his wall,” Arianna threatened, snapping me out of my thoughts.

            What kind of threat is that? I thought confusedly.

            Red scoffed through her ragged breaths. “And where is your boyfriend? Passed out on the floor? He never was a real man. Face it, Annie; you’re just a pathetic human.” She looked at Arianna like she was a bug.

            That was Red’s slip.

What do you mean? Aren’t you a human too? You smell like one... My thoughts trailed off in suspicion.

“Stop playing with her,” I shot out, with a cold voice.

            “My pleasure,” Red responded, still slowly hurting Arianna. The horror flashed in Arianna’s eyes as she tried to move. It was unsuccessful due to Red’s powerful grip. Like the rest of us, she hit Arianna once more and Arianna didn’t get up.

            “I need their memories erased, but vampire amnesia doesn’t always happen. You guys get-” I was interrupted.

            “Leave it to me. Just wait outside and I’ll do something. A vampire at the club taught me a few tricks,” she explained. I wasn’t thoroughly convinced, though. Something just seemed off with her explanation.

            I wasn’t in the mood to yell at her.

            When we left, a powerful pure white light shot through the entire restaurant.

            Red didn’t come out. It was actually quite nerve wracking on my part. Some part of me told myself I should’ve done something, but I didn’t.

            Derek ran in before I could and when he walked out, he was carrying a passed out Red.

~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ . ~ .~ . ~ .~ .~ .~ .~

            “Wake up,” I snapped.

            Red made some guttural noises. She looked extremely sleep deprived and just downright weak. Her face was paler than normal and I wondered if she was sick.

            “That’s no way to treat a sick patient,” she croaked out in humor. Her blonde hair was tangled and dishevelled. It made me wonder what happened to the neat and organized cynic I had grown so accustom with.

            The corners of my lips twitched. I see you haven’t changed a bit. You know, personality wise, I thought casually.

            “I feel like someone went Picasso on my organs,” she muttered, groaning. I didn’t even understand what she meant by that.

            “So, are you ready to get changed?” I tried to sound conversational.

            “Clothes or species?” She asked teasingly.

            I scoffed and left her alone to get ready. “I’m explaining to everyone in half an hour. You should get up,” I told her, coming back in. I must’ve looked stupid, coming back in to remind her.

            “Nice to see you back, Amira!” Reese smiled in admiration. I looked at my best friend and nodded somewhat kindly.

            “Yeah, nice. I need to go find Tehera,” I explained, walking off.

            Tehera was in charge again and whenever I came back, I would check with her. When it came to keeping everyone in line, Tehera was the perfect person. It probably had something to do with her young, yet intimidating looks.

            Reese looked at me with an expression I didn’t recognize. I pushed the curiosity from my mind and walked off. I figured Tehera would be in her room.

            I stopped at the door of Tehera’s room, not entering. I heard the sounds of something becoming airborne and hitting something hard. What are you doing? I thought, squinting my eyes.

            I walked in to Tehera with her eyes closed, lounging on her couch. She was sitting upright with darts in her hands.

            “What are you doing?” I asked, snapping her out of her reverie.

            She didn’t even look at me. “Throwing darts at a dartboard. I started with a bow and arrow but got bored. Same thing with knives,” she answered stiffly.

            I was a bit shocked at her tone. Usually Tehera was really polite towards me. It usually was out of fear. Right now, it was just downright rude and I felt like yelling. I didn’t though, for reasons unknown.

            “Well, why are you so mad or whatever?”

            “You know that book I’m reading, right? ‘Tangled Hearts’? Well, Hanna just told Justin she loved him and he didn’t respond. That was the ending! The freaking ending!” She exploded on me.

            Wow, trust Tehera to get mad over a book, I mentally mocked. I looked over her shoulder and saw the book on the ground. It was partly torn and pretty damaged. I frowned. For some reason, I always had a certain respect for books.

            “Well, is there a sequel?” I asked smartly.

            “It comes out in a year! Ugh, I need to know what happens to Hanna and Justin!”

            “Why don’t you just ask Sage to time travel you one year ahead?” I gave her a look that symbolized her stupidity. She looked at me with a sheepish expression and turned to get up.

            “Uh, I came to ask about what happened during my absence.” I remembered the reason I was here in the first place.

            “Fine,” she responded too quickly.

            “You said that really fast,” I commented.

            “I need to use the bathroom.”

            “You’re a vampire, you can’t go,” I pointed out. That was it; she was definitely hiding something from me. “Tehera...” I dragged her name out for effect.

            “Fine! Well, Connor and Aiden... They kind of, sort of, maybe, destroyed your room?” She made it sound like a question. I looked at her in confusion. She seemed to expect me to be mad, but I didn’t know why.

Irritated at the boys’ stupidity? Yes.

Seething anger beyond no compare? No.

“How?” I asked shortly.

“They burned it down accidently. They were trying to shoot a firework from the inside of your room, through your window. Let’s just say it didn’t work...” She trailed off.

“You can train a boy to be an assassin, but he will always be a boy. That includes the teen angst and blowing things up!” I started with a yell. The sheer terror on Tehera’s face was actually really funny. “But, what should we matter if we have Sage? Just go back in time and fix it,” I solved smartly.

Tehera’s brown hair flew back as she ran out of the room without another word.

That’s done, I thought. I quickly sent a thought –through mind link– to everyone. You guys deserve an explanation. Meet in the living room? It was phrased like a suggestion, but it was always a command.

As everyone met in the living room, I noticed a few people missing.

Derek and Red...

The sounds of feet coming down the stairs caught my attention. My eyes locked into Derek’s hands, helping Red down the stairs. It reminded me of when I broke my leg as a human.

            Why aren’t you here with me now, I thought sadly.

            “So, I’m guessing Derek told you what happened in the restaurant?” I asked.

            Everyone mutely nodded. Their eyes were questioning, but they would only ask when they could.

            “I’ll answer one question from each of you, and then show you the memories. So any questions?” Suddenly I was bombarded with them.

            “Why did you call me your friend?” Derek started.

            I replayed the memory of last night. “Because I consider you guys friends,” I responded. I didn’t care to explain further, and they didn’t dare ask.

            “Why do you hate the Cullens?” A voice that sounded distinctly Asian asked. I looked at Sage and sighed.

            “Because Edward and I used to date and he dumped me. Then he left me and brought his entire family,” I said while putting my nonchalant expression.

            “Who’s Bella Swan?” Tehera asked genuinely.

            “I am,” I started, “at least, I was.”

            The questions all seemed less painful to answer with each one. When I promised to tell the truth, I meant it. Everything I said was completely fact and I didn’t have a reason to lie.

            Even after showing them my memories, I didn’t feel anything. It was just cold, blind bitterness. Same as usual.

            We were about to leave, when a voice rang through the room...

            “Do you still love Edward?” Red asked with a piercing gaze before anyone could leave.

            Everyone looked at me, waiting for my answer.

            I was speechless. It wasn’t a question I wanted to answer, nor could. “You talk about killing him, but do you still love him?” She pressed again.

            My muscles clenched and I looked Red in the eye. “I don’t. Do you remember the restaurant? I told him I didn’t love him,” I told her carefully, keeping my voice steady and levelled.

            She turned away after that.

            But was she right? Did I still have feelings for the boy that broke my heart? How could I have feelings if my heart was already broken?

            Your fault, all your fault...
