I don’t dare to look at him, the one man that refuses to kill anything apart from animals and that for already more than three hundred years. And I’d killed a vampire.
“I remember hearing the news five years ago…she was struck by lightning and vanished into ashes…”
I keep silent not sure what to say. He’ll probably go mad at me for my actions when I was eleven years old.
“It was me…And Carlisle, I swear I’m not proud of it,” I start my eyes prying and wide, ”But I’ll never regret it.”
The Cullen leader listened to me again and is tapping his chin.
“I had no other choice. If I hadn’t thrown the lightning that day, I wouldn’t be standing here right now. Athenodora probably wasn’t as dangerous as her husband or the rest of the guard, but she was Fiorenza’s coven mate. Felix and Demetri had shown up on our doorstep, saying that I was to be expected in their palazzo. Everyone refused to let me go, but Adam reassured me, told me what to do if anything went wrong. they took me there and when I entered that throne room, I became lunatic, furious and completely out of control.”
I remembered it vaguely, but sometimes pieces came flooding back.
“because of the blood?” Carlisle questions, but I shake my head.

“No, Fiorenza was Athenodora’s coven mate, which means she was there. She’d left us when I was about four and never returned. We thought she died but I saw her there, next to Aro wearing that god-awful black cloak.”
“How have you ever left there alive?” is his astonished reply. I shrug,” I have lost quite much of my memory since the accident. The details, that is. The only thing I know about this, is that I ran through Italy, to reach Adam who’d come after me so we could travel back. On my way I caught sight of Athenodora and I knew from her mind she was a friend of my mother’s. out of anxiety for getting killed or brought back to the guard, I attacked her. I only heard much later she was Caius wife.”

“You’ve been through quite a lot I believe,” Carlisle states after a while of silence. I just shrug again. things could’ve been worse with me.
“I don’t judge you darling. It’s shocking to hear, but I’m not saying you were wrong in your actions,” Carlisle walks up to me and takes my face in his hands,” You were a child then. A child in a serious situation of fear. It’s in the past. Now, you’re a beautiful young woman, mother of a very bright twin and my son’s mate. And no matter what will ever happen – we are here to protect you.”
I feel so relieved at his words. They actually make me feel teary, and the result is now falling down my cheek. Carlisle brushes the tear away and smiles apologetically.
“Come here, give this very old man a hug,” he says and I comply, laying my head against his chest, my arms around his back. Carlisle pats my shoulders, comforting me in a parental way. In a way I’ve missed throughout a lot of years in my life.
‘And about Edward,’ his mind starts ,’ give him time. show him piece by piece or let something slip between the conversations you have with your siblings. Even if he doesn’t like it. He’ll come around.’
I nod and step back, smiling and wiping away my tears a little.
“I better go…there’s a lot more I should do today.” I announced, ready for the next obstacle to face, which wore the name Jacob Black.
“Go ahead. I’ll see you sometime today or tomorrow.”
I go to the door and open it to leave,” Thanks Dad.”
Carlisle’s eyes widen in surprise as do mine when I realize what I’ve said. I want to apologize but he beats me to it, ”No problem. You have two father’s. I actually appreciate you calling me dad. Thank you.”
I grin widely and tell him goodbye before going through the aisle again I can’t help but wave to Cranky Nurse Tina. She huffs at me and I giggle as I leave the hospital.

Outside, it’s dribbling with rain, but I don’t really mind. I actually like the freshness falling on my cheeks after talking about my past.
My phone starts ringing and I know immediately it must be Alice. pulling my phone out of my pocket though, I see Skye’s number appear on the screen. Frowning I pick up, walking towards the road to cross so I can start running once in the woods.

“Hey, little sister!” her enthusiasm sounds through the speaker.
“Hey, taller sister,” I joke dumbly,” What’s up?”
“Well, since you’re graduating in a short while, I was thinking that we maybe should host a party? At our house? With the Cullens and your classmates and all that.”
I cross the street quickly and answer when I’ve done that, ”Are you sure, I mean….isn’t that a little dangerous?”
“Dangerous? Afraid we’ll rip your classmates head off? yeah right Swan. It’s not dangerous it’s fun. Please? Alice has already been searching for invites and all that!”
I roll my eyes, taking my direction to the right, onto a path into the woods. Going through the bushes right next to the main road would be quite suspicious. And of course Alice is in this complot.
“Sure, why not? I’ll only graduate high school once for the first time.”
Skye’s laughter on the other side of the line is being interrupted by a young boyish voice.
“That’s mommy on the phone sweetie….do you want to say hi?” she is talking to I was sure one of my sons ,”Melody, Blaze wants to talk to you.”
I tell my sister to give him the phone and I wait for his voice to brighten my day.

\“Hi mommy!”
“Hi baby! Did you sleep well?” I am walking through the forest at a slow human pace. After my call I will go on my mission for the remainder of this day.
“Yeah! Raven is still sleeping. He say he tired of running with uncle Chris,” is his reply. I was so glad he was talking more now. it gets me thinking that we should pull a small age-test with them again soon.
“That’s great, baby. Let your brother sleep will you?”
I could imagine him nodding wildly with his head, ”Yep. I going to make a drawing with aunt Skye. We be very quite.”
I chuckled,” quiet, sweetie. You missed the e.” I tell him. it’s silent until he giggles, ”Oopsie. Qui…et!”
“See! That isn’t so difficult. You only need a little practice and then you’ll talk like mommy and daddy.”
I babble a little more with him until he says that he’s going to make a drawing for me. I tell him have fun and we hang up.
