We were staring at each other as I waited, expectantly and mostly impatient. Was he going to talk or what? 
‘Listen, I know you don’t like any of this, but Melody, I’m still your father and I expect from you that you’ll behave in a right manner.’ He finally began. And right he was – I didn’t like it at all and his reasoning was ridiculous in my opinion. I did my very best to keep my mouth shut. Charlie’s voice took a lower pitch before he went on, ‘It’s just that I’m a done with the whole secret stuff towards your sister. she’s family and she should know.’ 
‘But, if she does,we’ll risk my sons safety!’I whisper-yelled, wide-eyed.
‘Well, maybe not exactly that, but let’s start with letting her know you’re in a relationship with Smartward. It’s only fair since she’s been in a relationship with him before.’ Charlie argued. I rolled my eyes at the nickname he’d found for Edward, gripping at my upper arms to keep restrained. 
‘Next to that, the reason that I said no Edward and Alice or any other Cullen, is because I think you’re around vampires a little too much for my liking. Jacob and Bella will do you good because they’re just humans,’ Charlie seriously explained. How wrong he was in that. 

‘Haven’t you ever thought about it that I AM part vampire? So that’s it normal for me to be around them? With me there they’ll transform faster and smoother and then you don’t have to worry about the Volturi and all that.’ I argued still at a whispering pitch as I heard Bella shuffle in the kitchen. 
Charlie seemed to think about that for a while, mind closed. I hated that he now knew how to do that.
During summer, we’d also told him more about our kind, Edward’s kind and the Volturi. Of course we never mentioned Fiorenza being there, but he knew quick enough that they were dangerous. And especially for us. 
‘Yes I know Melodiana, but I’m your father and you do as I say!’
‘Oh sure! And I’m raising a fast-growing hybrid-vampire twin so don’t tell me what to do! I’m old and wise enough and a parent myself!’ I groused making sure Bella wouldn’t hear. I needed to admit though, that the secrets were getting at my throat too. 

‘As long as you live under my roof, Melodiana Helena Marie, I set the rules and you obey them. When you’re in Seattle with Raven and Blaze you can raise them as you wish and I won’t interfere. But here, in this house, my rules are first. Understood young lady?’ 
I could sense his madness and he was somewhat right but I hated him treating me like a child. I might be fifteen, and staying like that forever but that didn’t mean I wasn’t incapable of bearing and raising children. His comment on ‘living under my roof’ made me a little..sadistic…so to speak. Mean was probably a better word, but he seriously was asking for it.
‘Okay. Fine. I’m out then.’ I said, before completely vanishing from sight. Charlie’s eyes went wide and he searched for me around him, thinking that I just ran somewhere else. In the meanwhile, I just took two steps forward and one step aside to turn and stand behind his shoulder. 
‘Melody where are you? I wasn’t done talking to you!’ 

…I just couldn’t help it. he pressured me to act more human and be around them? Well, then why shouldn’t he know about my latest skill? 
I smiled devilishly, letting first my hand appear next to his face. His eyes caught sight of it and the look on his face was quite priceless. To not torture him much longer, I let my arm, then my torso and head following with my legs and feet reappear. Charlie was absolutely stunned. 
‘How..? Oh wait, I’m not even going to ask!’ he grumbled lowly as I snickered a little. 
‘This is what I meant with the fact that hanging out with Jake and Bella is not as good for me as you think Dad. Look at the differences.’ He might know things, but not everything, ‘I’m incredibly fast and my strength is much more developed than yours. My muscles are like steel. My paleness doesn’t bother anyone here, but my eye-color is definitely different. And then the fact that I’ll never get older than this. That my heart will stop beating someday, before taking on a different pace. ‘ I explained him all of that. He needed to understand it. It felt also like a practice for the day when I had to tell Edward. Charlie followed my eyes, curious but also worried. 
‘when I hunt dad, I chase wild animals for blood. That’s what keeps me partly alive…And then al the gifts? Mind reading was the first one and you knew that,’ I said with a smile small. I had noticed Charlie slight shock upon the wild animal thing, ‘shielding myself from attacks is another. Letting lightning course all over my body and use it as a weapon is the biggest and most dangerous for any enemy existing. And becoming invisible is something new. I got that after I gave birth to Raz and Aze.’
Charlie sighed deeply after having looked into my eyes.
‘I do understand a little of you now…but you also need to understand that I am human and it’s quite strange to process it all, sweetheart. And it’s not that I’m angry at you, but I want to make you happy.’ 
I smiled crookedly, ’I am happy…for the most part. But dad, you need to find a way to let go. Someday you’ll have too.,..’ I whispered. Something that might upset him, but it was the harsh truth. We would live on through forever, and he wouldn’t. And hearing the shock and fear in his mind and the gulp echo through his throat I knew I’d hit a nerve. But it was needed. For the sake of everyone.
