<span style='font-family: "Times,";' georgia,="" serif;"="">I feel tense the second he asks me to tell him about myself specifically. I stare at Carlisle waiting for the moment that he might change his mind or has to go back to his shift.
‘I won’t have to be back on shift until this evening.’
As if he read my mind….
I sigh deeply and close my eyes, ’Alright, I’ll tell you the most basic things. To start with a little of my history.’
Carlisle motions with his hand that I should go on.

‘You know my siblings are far from human. but I’m different though. There are even more secrets I carry with me than my siblings do. My age for example,’ I start walking through the office, as I tell him how it works.
‘Everyone here, thinks I’ve passed the age of eighteen. Edward is delighted that I’m still aging, that’s why he doesn’t consider me as being immortal. The truth is,’ I face my father-in-law who is watching me intently, ’I was born on the twenty-sixth of November…in 2001. Officially I am only eleven years old. But just like Raven and Blaze, I grew faster than any other toddler. My body and mind capacity compares to that of a fifteen slash sixteen year old. I’ll never get older than this.’
It is silent for a few minutes as Carlisle processes this all. He didn’t expect this.
‘it’s intriguing…move on please.’

I nod,’ something else different about me – my eyes were as red as those from a human drinking vampire when I was born. So was my craving for blood something that started at a very early stage in my life. Weirdly, though, everything seemed to slow down after my seventh birthday and I became more human. in the summer my mind turned fourteen, which is three years ago, I died in an attack from none other than the hybrid who gave birth to me.’ my voice cracks as do my knuckles from squeezing my fists so hard form fury.

“You died?” Carlisle is dumbstruck a is nod,” Yes, it’s how I see it. Adam had difficulties with deciding if he should bite me or not. He took his decision right on time, before my heart would have failed. He bit me, on the inside of my right leg. His venom made sure I was able to heal better and faster,’ I tell him about how I was in coma for eight days, went through a post-traumatic stress disorder and wasn’t able to deal with any longer, which created my decision to go to Forks. I am astonished by myself in how I handled telling all this to Carlisle. But I am relieved someone of the Cullens wants to listen.

“And your mother, where is she?” he asks cautiously. I shrug,” I have no clue. Maybe some vampire killed her, maybe to Volturi did. or she’s still alive and searching after me. James said he was going to finish what she’d started that summer, but luckily you and Edward were there to help me. “
Recognition flickers in his eyes, ”He knew you. That’s why you ran.”
“Exactly. I need to stay anonymous, especially for the Volturi. Fiorenza is positive she killed me that one night, and Aro think the same way.”
Confusion is written on Carlisle face, ”But you were there in Italy to save Edward. How did they not notice you?”

I sighed and looked at him from the corners of my eyes, feeling my shield slip away and reveal my true nature,” That’s actually the fun part of all this.”
My skin is a little paler, with at my cheeks the permanent rosy undertone. My eyes are brighter, larger and fiercely golden with black circles around the irises. My lips are a slight tint redder and my hair fuller, healthier and lustrous. The ends of the tresses curl in a natural wave while the tips have colored blonde, as if having highlights. My body changes only slightly, but obvious enough for Carlisle to see when my shield falls.

“This is truly me and I am only able to show you for a little of time – after my so-called death I haven’t let my shield down for a second, to stay anonymous. I wouldn’t want Demetri finding me after all this time of hiding and bringing my family in danger.”
“It’s such a slight change in appearance, but it shows your immortality…it’s enigmatic, Melody.’
I smile shyly, ”Strange question, but concentrate on the smell of my blood and the beat of my heart.”
Carlisle does as I have asked and surprise brightens his expression,” it’s truly different than that of a human…but yet it’s smells like the blood of a human. and venom, there is definitely venom in your veins. And your heart,” he smiles at me ,”it’s like the same hummingbird as those that houses in the chests of your sons….magnificent!”
within a second my shield slips back up. He’s smelled the difference heard it and saw it. The show is over.
“There is more. I’m sure Adam told you about the standard hybrid things? Like feeding and all that?”
Carlisle nods, “that’s right, I’m aware of those facts.”
“Had he ever showed you anything with gifts?” I ask cautiously. He smiles, ”Well you read minds, but that’s all I know. And you seem to have a shield where I just found out about.”
“I read minds, like Edward. I’ve tried to tell him on various moments but he refuses to listen to me. Alice knows about the mind reading also. But there’s more. “

I take a few steps backwards and let my whole body disappear at once, seeing Carlisle’s confused face. In a flash I’m standing behind him, leaning against a bookcase. My body reappears again.
“After the twin was born, I went through a twelve hour change. We all suspected I’d be like my siblings after that, but that never happened. I got a new skill though,” I say as Carlisle spins around with an enormous grin,” That’s an incredible smart gift when you’re hunting.’
I nod and giggle, “Indeed! Alright you’ve seen my shield, my invisibility and know about my telepathy gift. But there is one thing, the same thing that wound me those three year ago,’ I step through at vampire speed so I’m back on the place I stood earlier. I flick with my wrist and feel the energy stream under the skin of my arm.

A small branch of lightning appears above my fingers, “I’m a lightning decisive.”

The blue fire dances in the palms of my hand and I swirl it around ,”It’s how I got scarred from my hip to my ribs on the right side of my body. It’s the same weapon that made those scars on my shoulder from the attack from James.”
Carlisle watches the lightning intently, follows every move. then, he seems to remember something that startles me.

“You killed Athenodora.”

And that was just the one thing I did not expect nor wanted to hear.
