24. Thunder 23

The remainder of the day we were busy with painting walls, placing furniture on the right spots and decorating the whole place. I needed to admit it was more beautiful than our house in Los Angeles – LA had its modern abstract charm while this house was much more romantic and showing a softer side with light tints of blue, green and yellow.
At the end of the day, When all the Cullen shad left to go back to their own house and it was just me and my siblings, Scarlett came up to me while I was watching the sun set.
‘It’s beautiful isn’t it?’ she mused, wrapping her arms around me. I smiled at her and nodded, ’it is. Everything is quite pretty. The Sunset, the grounds around here, the house itself…it’s the best we’ve ever had.’

‘I can’t deny that my dear sister,’ Scarlett chuckled and then sighed ,’so how is….the mated life?’
I sucked in a sharp breath. Wrong question.
‘It…goes. We try, he tries the best he can but we keep getting conflicted about whatever reason. ’I turned to face her concerned expression,’ We love each other, that I’m sure about, but he has so much problems with my being. What I am.’ I almost choked the last piece out, feeling emotionally wrought. ‘Scar, what if he thinks that I’m a monster? What if he knows? He’ll leave me again...’
I forced the tears back but it became harder. I explained what had happened the last few days and she just listened to me, not judging anyone.
‘You know, I get it. I understand your frustrations. But you mustn’t take this too hard on him – he’s trying to deal with it. you need to imagine how he felt when he heard you were dead.’ My sister cringed ,’He’s probably just so very scared to get you into any kind of danger, even if that danger is yourself.’
I let those words sink in and realized that must be Edward’s biggest fear – to let something hurt me, what or whomever is was.

‘But, Melody, let’s just be clear that you’re not the danger. Believe me.’ Scarlett smiled at me again while she said this. It was then that I remembered I needed something clarified.
‘That’s not true. You were going to make sure I wouldn’t but that doesn’t say I’m not dangerous.’
Scarlett frowns as I hear Skye coming up behind us stepping onto the balcony we were standing on.
‘How would you know?’ she asked with the same frown our older sister holds. I swallow, afraid if it truly was a memory. I was scared for this day, the day that all things would come back to me.
‘I had a dream last night. Or better said a nightmare about…us. About Fiorenza, how she left us all those years ago,’ I heard my sisters gasp en saw the very same images go through their heads. Now it was my turn to catch my breath.

‘So..i-it was a memory?’
Skye nodded, an apologetic look on her face, ’Yes, it has to be. That image of you as a toddler sucking – ‘
‘The reds. Blood. I know.’ I said feeling a cold chill pass over my spine. Scarlett sighed and took my hand in hers.
‘it’s how I got my scar,’ she said, pointing at the curve at the hook of her jaw. I knew she had it, but never questioned how she got it because I knew how I felt about being asked about my scars. But now it just fell into place. I was glad with that, that I at least remembered something, even though it was a bad memory. But I still felt uncomfortable about what Fiorenza had said back then, what I remembered.
‘Skye, Scar….’ I turned to face them, searching both sets of golden eyes. They were honest, bright and soft.
‘do you think that I’ll…be the same like her?’ I whispered, my voice breaking at the end. I hated to think of her, that monster. I hated her more than anything. The simple thought of her getting close to us….it made me feel petrified.
‘Oh Lord, of course not! You’re nothing like her Melody, really you’re not.’ Skye immediately argued with me, scowling at one hundred percent.
‘Your soul, your mind and your body – you’re so much stronger than her in any way. You won’t succumb to that dark side because you’ll feel appalled by yourself.’ Scarlett finished. I nodded sadly. I wanted to believe them and at some degree I did. but I don’t think they knew where I was capable of.
