We made it to the orphanage. The ride from the the Cullen's house was about a hour and twenty minutes. Carlisle stopped the car, got out and came around to open my door. I glanced at Carlisle with a pleading look, earning a sad smile in return as he put an arm around my shoulders and walked me to the door.
Part of me feared what awaited me on the other side of that door. The door to what's considered my personal hell on earth. I hated life at the orphanage with deep hatred and a big part of me wanted to cling and beg Carlisle to take me back home with him, but I couldn't do that. Who was I to intrude on his and his families lives, a nobody that's who. So with great reluctance I swallowed my desire for freedom and waited as he rang the door bell. I stepped away from Carlisle, leaving him behind me and to my dismay the devil herself opened the door.
"Where have you been?" Mrs. Shelton asked not noticing Carlisle behind me. Her emotions were evident on her face, she was angry.
"I got lost. I'm sorry."
"Go to your room. You are to be punished," she said. Carlisle stepped to the door.
"Mrs. Shelton if I may explain. I am Carlisle Cullen. Ariella ran to my house when she was being chased by some guys," he said.
"Well its nice to meet you Carlisle," she said with a flirtatious smile. Poor guy.
"Um, yes, nice to meet you too. I must go now, my wife is waiting for me," he emphasized wife. As he turned away from her he turned to me.
"Until next time Ariella," he said.
"Bye Carlisle," I replied. He walked away and when he was gone Mrs. Shelton grabbed my arm pulling me in the building.
"As punishment you will not eat until I say so and you will be cleaning." I nodded not surprised and glad I already ate dinner.
For the next two days I didn't eat at all and all I was allowed to do was clean, I felt weak and tired. I wanted to leave this place but I knew that was asking for too much and no one wanted to adopt a fourteen year old teenager.
Eventually I couldn't clean anymore, my lack of energy prevented it, so I'm kept in my room at all times. The room was different from everyone else's. It was smaller with one bed and its own bathroom. Some may think that sounded nice, but it wasn't. Its kinda like being a prisoner almost. I was kept alone all because I was not aloud to be around the other orphans. Only when Mrs. Shelton wasn't in one of her bad moods did she even let me eat at the table with everyone.
I lay on my bed and wonder what the Cullen's were doing at that moment and as the thought crosses my mind, I'm taken into a vision.
It was the present:
All the Cullen's were in the living room doing different activities. Emmett, Jasper, and Jacob were playing video games. Bella and Edward were having a conversation. Alice and Rosalie were reading fashion magazines. Renesmee was on a laptop next to Edward. Carlisle and Esme were talking with Fred.
"What's Ariella up to?" Alice wondered.
"Your the psychic. Why don't you tell us," Emmett said.
"I can't see her at the moment. Its like she doesn't exist."
"What do you mean?" Esme asked.
"Well when I look for her future its like she doesn't have one."
"Hmm...maybe we should go to the orphanage to see if she is okay," Carlisle said.
"I agree," Alice said. They all nodded in approval. Emmett looked at Rosalie in confusion.
"You treat her nicely, not that I'm complaining, but it's you Rose," he said. She glared at him and he raised his arms in surrender.
"I think that we should make sure she is okay," Rosalie explained herself.
"Who knows these kids might get treated like the kids from Annie," Emmett said. They all just looked at him like he was crazy.
"What?" he asked.
"Let's hope not," Esme said with worry. Carlisle put a comforting hand on hers.
"Maybe," he said. It was as if he was implying something. Them again he did witness Mrs. Shelton's hostility towards me.
"So it's settled. We will leave now," Esme stated leaving no room for argument as she stood up.
"Yes, we can leave now," Carlisle said.
So Alice can see the future as well. Maybe she can help me. Well I know one thing for sure and that is that the Cullen's are coming here now. I'm excited but scared at the same time, I mean if they see the way I look they will know something is wrong, but then again that could be a good thing.
Who knows. I guess I'll just wait and see what happens.
Thanks for reading.
