11. ten

Once I got to Trig , another class I shared with Bella, I got a dirty look from the teacher. I quickly shuffled to my seat, next to Bella’s.
      “Next time, Miss Swan, I hope you’ll join us on time. not seven minutes later. “ Mr. Varner said. I mumbled some apologies and opened my books. 
      “I told you he was mine. I’m going to Seattle with him next week. He asked me. So if I were you, I’d stay away.” Bella said, never letting her gaze leave the blackboard. I didn’t say anything back; not wanting to spur her on and not knowing what to say or think. I didn’t know why I felt so sick when Bella and Edward together was mentioned. I tried to shake it off multiple times, but it kept creeping me. when Bella didn’t get the angry reply she wanted, she huffed and flung her hair in my face. I ignored it while my hand gripped the edge of the wooden table. 
      After another three hours of boring classes, the bell announced it was time for lunch. I’d packed my stuff and left the room, heading for the cafeteria. Normally, Angela would wait for me and we’d go together. I looked around the parking lot, in search for her. Maybe she’d gone ahead or wanted to be early in line. Then, I spotted her. I smiled at first, but when I saw the look she gave me and the people whom were surrounding her, the smile faded as quick. It looked like she was starting to get close friends with Lauren, Jessica and Bella. 
      Rejected, I entered the cafeteria and waited in line to get myself something to eat. When I eventually got a sandwich and some water, I paid and went for the usual table. I got glares from the girls and wondered if Bella had said anything about what had happened yesterday. I sat down next to Ben Cheney and wanted to do nothing more than suffer in silence. Why did she have to steal away my friends? I hadn’t done anything to hurt Angela. for a second I thought about just reading their minds to know, so I could fix it. But I didn’t even want to know. It were probably just lies or Bella had made a huge drama queen story about our fight. I sighed.
      “Edward Cullen is staring at you again. I wonder why he’s sitting alone today.” I heard Jessica say to Bella. My head snapped up, following their gaze. And there he sat. Alone at a table for two. I saw him winking at Bella and he motioned with his index-finger for her to join him. She stood up and left the table, heading towards Edward. she sat down and they started talking. My head shot to the table where they always were seated. Jasper, Emmett and Rosalie where studying him. Their minds told me they weren’t very happy with this. Alice though, was a happy for him, that he’d finally found someone to love. 
      I sucked in a huge breath. He was in love with her. I followed their conversation closely. I wanted – no, needed – know what was said.

      "Giving up?" Bella asked, warily.
      "Yes — giving up trying to be good. I'm just going to do what I want now, and let the chips fall where they may." Edward’s smile faded as he explained, and a hard edge crept into his voice.
      "You lost me again." ‘can’t he just be more clearly?’
The breathtaking crooked smile he could put on reappeared.
      "I always say too much when I'm talking to you or your sister — that's one of the problems." He glanced toward me for a second when he mentioned my name. I blushed off course.
      "Don't worry — I don't understand any of it," Bella let him know
      "I'm counting on that." 
      "So, in plain English, are we friends now?" ‘you could be my next ex-boyfriend too, if you want?’
      "Friends…" he mused, dubious.
      "Or not," she muttered irritated again.
Edward grinned. "Well, we can try, I suppose. But I'm warning you now that I'm not a good friend for you." Behind his smile, the warning was real.
      "You say that a lot," Bella noted.
      "Yes, because you're not listening to me. I'm still waiting for you to believe it. If you're smart, you'll avoid me." Edward explained, serious again.
      "I think you've made your opinion on the subject of my intellect clear, too." Bella said, bitch completely back. Edward smiled apologetically.
      "So, as long as I'm being… not smart, we'll try to be friends?" she said, crossing her arms. 
      "That sounds about right." He shrugged and she smiled wickedly. ‘step one is done. Step two is on the way! You’re going to be so screwed Edward.’
      "What are you thinking?" he asked curiously.
      "I'm trying to figure out what you are." She blurted. She indeed had been thinking about that a lot lately. 
Edward’s jaw tightened, but he kept his smile in place with some effort.
      "And? You already know?" he asked in an offhand tone.
      "No, not really," Bella admitted.
He chuckled. "What are your theories?"
Bella blushed thinking about Spiderman and Batman. "Won't you tell me?" he asked, tilting his head to one side with a shockingly tempting smile.
Bella shook her head. "Too embarrassing."
      "That's really frustrating, you know," he complained "Please tell me just one little theory." His eyes smoldered at her. It was intoxicating.
      "Um, well, bitten by a radioactive spider?" ‘is he a hypnotist, too?’
      "That's not very creative," he scoffed.
      "I'm sorry, that's all I've got," She said, sneering.
      "You're not even close," he teased.
      "No spiders?" I mentally rolled my eyes at that. No spiders indeed… Edward shook his head no. "And no radioactivity?" Bella tried again.       "None." Edward replied.
      "Damn," Bella groused.
      "Kryptonite doesn't bother me, either, you know." Edward started chuckling. 
      “I’ll find out. Watch me.” Bella threatened. Edward seemed unaffected by her threat. 
      I stopped listening. I didn’t like it – seeing Bella chatting with Edward. 
      “Hey Melody, what time are you at the beach? Or do you want to drive with us?” Mike’s voice woke me from my trance. I looked up to see him smiling at me. 
      “I’ll be there at ten, if that’s okay?” he nodded happily. At least I’d made someone happy today. 
      The bell rang and I stood up to leave for biology, when I heard Alice’s thoughts. 
      ‘Melody, I’m not going. You’ll find out soon enough why…I’m not allowed to tell you.’ I turned my head to see her through the crowd. I nodded and smiled lightly, letting her know that what happened this morning wasn’t because of her. I was curious, though, why they’d skip biology today. I just shrugged and headed for the right classroom. 

      When I entered the room I saw Bella already seated. Alone. Edward wasn’t here either. Strange? Why’d they do that? What couldn’t Alice tell me? confused, I sat down on my stool and leaned back against the backrest. On the blackboard was a message that said we didn’t need our books today. If I’d known earlier, my bag would’ve been less heavier. Mr. Banner entered the room, trailing a cart with medical supplies behind him. I saw needles, plastic gloves, microscopes, test tubes. I still had no clue about what we were going to do, until I read Mr. Banner’s enthusiastic mind. ‘ exciting! This way they can donate blood in PA. I’m sure there are a few of them who will do that.’ 


      Normally, this wouldn’t cause any problems, but today I felt like something would go horribly wrong. It was nagging me in the back of my mind. I gasped when I remembered.

      ‘So…my body is different than that from other humans?’ I didn’t understand it. Scarlett sighed and started explaining.
‘Yes, but not very much. My body is much more different, but that’s another story. Your body is stronger, faster, your skin is paler, your eyes are bigger and have much better sight. Your ears can hear much more than those from the neighbors. And don’t forget you can read minds, others most likely can’t. Even your blood is different. it’s important for you to know all this.’ I looked at her, understanding written over my face. I was different and no one except from my family was allowed to know that.

      When I was twelve Scarlett had told me what I was. my sibling shad hinted that I was different when I was much younger, but that day she told me everything. Not having blood similar to that from other humans was part of it. 
      I had to get out of here.
      While Mr. banner started explaining happily, with Mike Newton as his participant, I was thinking of a way to get out of here as soon as possible. I noticed Bella getting sick as well. She was getting nauseated from the blood. When our teacher poked through Mike’s skin with a needle, my body tensed. I felt the weirdest and most uncomfortably sensation coursing through my body. I didn’t recognize it but when I saw the blood seeping out of his finger, I found myself licking my lips in anticipation.
      I was thirsty. Thirsty for human blood for the first time ever. 
      I gritted my teeth and put my feet down hard on the ground. I clenched my fists, hoping I could control myself. My eyes were wide and my nostrils flared. I wanted nothing more than to bite, tear and drink. No! it’s Mike. He’s just an innocent human! He’s one of your friends! get out of here! NOW!
      I raised my hand, still gripping the edge of the table with the other. 
      “Miss Swan?” He asked in return. I swallowed the fluid what I guessed was venom before speaking.
      “I don’t feel very well. I can’t stand the blood. Can I leave please?” my voice cracked and was strained. The teacher nodded and told me to go to the school nurse. Absolutely not. While I quickly grabbed my bags, during the torturous time where my classmates were cheerfully prodding through each other’s skin, I noticed Bella getting up to be guided towards the nurse by Mike. I swung my bag around my shoulder an practically ran out of the room. Nobody was around me when I opened my locker with inhuman speed and threw my bag in it. I slammed the door shut and ran through the aisles, across the parking lot, into the woods. When I wasn’t in sight of FHS anymore, I let go. I’d never felt so animalistic and strong in my entire life. Somewhere, in the back of my mind, a small voice told me to stop and think. My body and instincts, however, craved for blood. That’s when I smelled it. 

      I stopped dead in track, completely still and listened. I heard movements to my right. Animals. Deer probably. I inhaled and my eyes flew open. Faster than lightning, I raced towards them, jumping in a close by tree. There were two deer. Venom flooded wildly again and I whimpered. It stung in my throat. I didn’t want to kill and innocent animal either, but I had to. I needed to. I took another deep breath and attacked. I pushed one of them down, while the other ran away. The animal struggled and so did I. The deer wanted to break free from my grasp and my rational side wanted nothing more than to fulfill its wish. But I couldn’t. I stopped thinking and just did it. I bit down in its jugular and sucked.
      The warm, soft thick liquid flowed down my throat. I moaned loudly. It was good, so, so good. More. I wanted more. I sucked harder, faster. Swallowing with every drop that pooled. Delicious. Ravenous. Monstrous.Pleasure, much pleasure. 

      After a few minutes I pushed it away. I crawled backwards and slumped against a rock. I’d just killed an animal. I felt so bad, but at the same time, I was relieved. The tension my body held the past few weeks, was gone. My breathing slowed down and I felt a little dizzy. I think from the running. I closed my eyes for a while, enjoying the feel of the fresh, warm liquid that flooded through my veins. I felt stronger, powerful. 
      I pulled my phone out of my jeans pocket, to check the time. It was twenty-eight minutes past two. I was expected at the hospital at fifteen past three. Which gave me less than an hour time. How the hell was I going to manage that? Maybe…
      I stood up from the ground and wiped off the dirt from my clothes. Looking down, I saw that I needed to change clothes and shower. My arms, shirt and probably my face were covered with splatters of blood. My jeans were ripped and muddied and also full of bloodstains. I sighed frustratingly. I had run very fast when I got here. I was hoping I could get just as fast to the main road, without anyone seeing me. but how? How did I run that fast?
      I closed my eyes and concentrated. I felt the strength I’d gotten after I drank from the deer coursing through muscles. I made the first step, followed by another and then I was off like a bullet. I didn’t know where I was headed, completely letting my instincts tell me where to go. Not even five minutes later, I found myself standing in the bushes across from my house. Now I only needed to cross the street without anyone seeing me. if that’d happen, someone would think I was some serial killer with all this blood, mud and tears. I scanned the area for minds. The old women next door was watching TV, so her mind wasn’t focused on what happened outside. Another neighbor stood in the kitchen, making sure the groceries were in the right cabinets. For the remainder there was no one to be find. I quickly crossed the street at a human pace, grabbed my keys from my pocket and opened the front door. I kicked out my shoes and carried them with me up the stairs. Once in my room I squeezed myself out of the dirty clothes and threw them in a plastic bag and shoved it under my bed. I would wash them later when there was time enough. I grabbed fresh clothes and a towel from my closet and hurried to the bathroom. I supposedly ignored the mirror, not wanting to see what I looked like. There was no time for shock now. I showered as quickly as I could and let the sweet aroma of coconut and bananas calm my senses. After drying off and blowing my hair, I dressed in a pair of jeans and a sweater. Down stairs I pushed my feet in my grey Uggs and left the house. Just as I descended the porch, I came face to face with Bella. Behind her stood the silver Volvo with Edward in the driver’s seat. 
      “What are you doing here?” she asked annoyed. I gave her a nasty look.
      “I need to go to the hospital. Dr. Cullen is removing my stitches today.” I said back, surprisingly calm. Bella huffed, rolling her eyes and I brushed past her. She turned to wave to Edward, who clearly had been bringing her home. When I looked at him, he had this strange look on his face. Then he pulled the engine and drove off. I scurried to the garage to get my bike. I put my earphones in, turned the music on and got on the bike. As Starships blared through the speakers I cycled my way to the hospital at a human pace. 

      “Miss Swan?” I looked up from my IPod when my name as called. A nurse mentioned for em to follow her and not much later, I stood in front of Dr. Cullen’s office. I knocked softly – he’d hear anyway. The door opened and Dr. Cullen smiled at me.
      “Hello, Melody. It’s good to see you again. Come in.” he stepped out of the doorway and motioned for me to enter. I stepped in and sat down on the chair at his desk. I looked around once. It surprised me to find family pictures hanging proudly on the walls. Some were weird, other’s were just outright beautiful. Dr. Cullen sat down in front of me and started talking. 
      “So. I’m going to remove your stitches today. It won’t hurt, but you will feel some stretching sensation afterward.” He explained. I nodded. With my clumsiness, I sure had stitches before. A lot actually. 
      Dr. Cullen stood up and walked over to the examination table. He motioned for me to sit on the white paper. Once I was seated he started talking to me while he peeled off the band-aids. 
      “So, how is it going? Are you having a good time here in Forks?” he asked sincerely, his eyes fixed on the now bandage-less space on my head. 
      “Well, it was very…getting used to at first, but I’m really glad to spent some time with my Dad now.” I answered honestly. Dr. Cullen smiled slightly. I felt a small pull at my head but ignored it. It didn’t hurt nor was it uncomfortable. 
      “I’m positive you’re happy to have time with your sister again, too.” ‘they seem so different from each other but they’re very look-a-like from the outside.’
      “Ah..well yes.” I didn’t know why, but I couldn’t lie completely. The doctor didn’t say anything about it, even though his thoughts told me he found this unexpectedly. He’d thought we were very close. He walked away from me to get rid of the dirty bandages and stitches. 
      “All right. We’re done here. Make sure to keep it clean the following days and..” when he looked at me, he was doing everything in his might not to laugh. I frowned..” if you have any problems with the scar or anything else you should come back.” He smiled now. I tried to read his mind, but I heard nothing. What could be so funny? 
      I jumped of off the examination table and retrieved my bag. 
      “Thank you Doctor. I’ll try not to see you any time soon.” As always, the blush spread through my cheeks. The doctor chuckled.
      “No thanks, Melody. And I indeed hope to not see you on ER. Have a nice day, though.” I smiled back and left the room. 

      Once outside, I got on my bike and cycled back home. I wondered where Alice was right now. I completely understood why she wasn’t in Biology today. I tried not to think about it too much. What had happened to me was absolutely not normal. I started panicking right away. I seriously wasn't going to call Adam. Maybe it was normal during the change? But then again; I’ve always been the out stander in my family. I could do things they never were able to do. I was probably just weird. 

      When I got home, I was completely drenched. Cycling in Forks wasn’t a very good idea, but when you don’t have a car is the only solution. I saw Charlie’s cruiser parked behind Bella’s truck. 
      “Melody? Is that you?” I heard the old man ask. I chuckled softly.
      “Yeah, it’s me. just got back from the hospital.” I said as I rounded the corner, into the living room. 
      “All right. What did he…” when he turned his head to look at me, he burst out laughing. I just stood there and waited for him to be done. 
      “Dad? What’s so funny? Dr. Cullen was at least containing his laughter.” I said mockingly. 
      “Look in the mirror.” He smiled broadly. Did I even want to know? I walked over to the mirror hanging by the stairs and looked at my reflection. 
      “Holy Shit!” just like Charlie, I busted out laughing. This was to funny for words. I noticed Bella getting down the stairs and she stared at me. 
      “What’s going on with you two?” she asked with a frown. I answered all too happy.
      “I’ve got a Harry Potter scar on my head! That’s genius!” I pointed at the lightning like scar next to my temple. Bella raised an eyebrow and started laughing with us. Once we calmed down, the oven beeped letting us know dinner was ready.
