Wide Awake

Zoe Jensen is hiking in the Rocky Mountains with her parents when a huge bear attacks, kills her parents, and nearly kills her. On that same day, Carlisle, Emmett, and Edward Cullen happen to be hunting for fresh animal blood. They find Zoe and save her. Now she has a new name. Zoe Cullen.


1. My Parent's Last Words

Zoe's POV

Chirp, chirp. I look up and see two little Blue jays hiding in the fern, singing their song. Nothing could ruin my mood today because today was the first day of summer and to celebrate, My parents and I were going on our first hike of the year. My mother smiled at me and sighed with content. "Isn't it beautiful Zoe?"

Beautiful was an understatement. There were no words to explain the beauty of nature. The sun was shining in a clear, blue sky, the trees rustled slightly in the wind, and then there were the sounds. Oh how many sounds there were. Leaves rustling in the wind, birds chirping, and the occasional crunch of twigs under my shoes were just some of many magnificent sounds outdoors.

GRRRR! Startled, my parents and I looked up anxiously. But nothing was there. We kept walking and heard it again. GRRRRRRRR!!!! In a blink of an eye, a huge, brown animal leapt from the underbrush and charged at my father. Mother and I ran, not knowing were to, screaming as loud as we possibly could. Then it was silent. We looked around and saw my father laying in a pool of blood, mangled from the bear's razor sharp claws and teeth. My mother gasped in horror and the bear looked up, blood dripping from its jowls. It charged again, this time aiming for my mother. It caught her head on and ripped her open, her screams growing more and more faint until they were nothing. I screamed then clamped my hand over my mouth. The monstrous bear looked up for the last time, it's eyes locking into mine. I was next.
