6. Thunder Five

After Edward’s sweet, very welcome, kiss, he told me I should go back to sleep. I was glad our talk turned out better than I expected and that we at least had come to some sort of a compromise. What still bothered me, was that it was still taking a toll on Edward and I was positive we were going to face much more like this.
I still didn’t understand it though. Why were we so much different than my siblings?
When Nathan and Layla met, it was immediately love at first sight. They mated and shared their secrets. In only two weeks time, Layla began having the symptoms of a half-breed, just like Adam did after Scarlett and he had mated completely. Layla became pregnant and they married soon after before Faith was born. When faith was there and almost full-grown , Nathan went through the last stage of the transformation, becoming immortal while his daughter followed suit. It went the same with my sisters, only they both changed right after they had given birth to their children.
I, on the other hand, fell in love with someone I thought was out of my league, had sex with him for one night and we were separated for a few months. After the twin was born, I did go through some changes, but Adam told me during summer, that somehow, the whole thing didn’t affect me as it was supposed to be. When I asked him why, he just vaguely shrugged his shoulders. I just got the feeling there was something he wasn’t telling me.

I was just dreaming peacefully, when an annoying beeping sound disturbed it. damn alarm clock. Groaning, I stretched my arms and rubbed my eyes before opening them. I expected some sharp light to shine through my window, but it was still pretty dark outside. But then again – it was only the end of February. Last year, around this time I was lounging in sunny LA and getting to know Raven and Blaze.
I slowly got up from my bed, trying to blindly shut of the beeping sound. I was still sleepily shuffling through my closet to get my fresh underwear when I noticed something missing. Or rather someone.
My underwear in hands I turned around, to search for Edward but he was nowhere to be seen. Had he left after all?
Before I could break out in a full panic attack, I noticed a piece of paper on the pillow next to where my head hat lain by waking up. I went back to my bed, leaning upon the mattress with one knee and unfolded the, obvious, letter.


Baby, I’m sorry I wasn’t there when you woke, but I needed to go home for a shower and fresh clothes. I’ll pick you up before school – Alice said your car will struggle this morning. Rose will look at it this afternoon.

I hope you have slept well, my love. [/url]X EC

I smiled at his little sweet letter. I always loved that side of him but it had been gone for months. I was unbelievably glad that he was turning back.
I placed the letter under my pillowcase and went to the bathroom for my usual morning routine, starting with a shower. I had showered in the middle of the night, but another round of duplicating scents would only make sure the left essence of blood would fade.
After having dried off and blew my hair, which I pulled into a ponytail without bothering to use the straitening iron, I applied some light touch of makeup and went back to my bedroom to search for my clothes for the day.
Not much later, I descended the stairs, dressed in my favorite pair of black ripped jeans where I wore black stockings underneath, a lacy white top, a light pink blouse and all my accessories in place. Before I’d leave the house, I would put on my black converse.
I quickly prepared dinner and checked the time before smiling. it was almost seven in the morning, the time when Raven and Blaze would wake up.
While I ate my cornflakes, I heard Bella shuffling upstairs. She had just woken up giving me enough stretch of time to make my secret phone all. I pulled the IPhone out of my pocket and dialed the number.
“Morning Melody! How was your hunt last night?” the phone was picked up by Skye, my sister. I stuffed another bite of cornflakes in my mouth. “Hey, well it was quit okay. I got in a fight with a damn mountain lion who refused to obey. Stupid cat.” I said, my frustrations from those chasing moments audible in my voice. Skye giggled at the other side of the line,” you did catch him right?”
“Of course I did! There’s no way some damn overgrown cat is ruining my nightly dinner. But anyway, Bella’s awake and I almost have to leave for school…” I hinted slowly. Skye chuckled again, ”alright, alright, I’ll give them the phone. “
I waited a few seconds, hearing Skye’s footsteps echo through before two beautiful voice boomed through the speaker.
“Mommy!” Raz an Aze sang in choir. Sky had put them on speaker, just like she did every single morning.
“Hey sweeties! Did you have a nice dream?” I asked, eager for the stories. I badly wanted to just read their minds, but that was mostly difficult since they were always talking with each other, leaving no room for me.
“Yeah! We dreamt about Daddy baking pwancakies and then dropping the syrup on Grandma’s table. It was really funny. And then Auntie Alice said we were going to swim!” Raven started this morning, telling me about their dream. Sometimes the story was so normal while at other mornings I’d hear the strangest things.
“And then Daddy push you in water Mommy! And you say that is not funny. And uncle Emmett begin playing tennis with us. I won!” Blaze move don with the story. He still couldn’t talk as good as his older brother already did, but I heard some progress almost daily.
“You did! That’s so good of you!” I enthused, hearing them both laugh into the phone. I wished I could hold them and see their happy expressions when they told me about their dreams.
They always remembered a lot of the details and it still amazed me how their telepathic minds dreamt the same things each night.
It was the reason why I wasn’t able to read their minds most of the times. I only could when they were not talking with each other via their minds.
I believed it was definitely something they inherited from Edward and me. and somehow, even though I was curious about how their child minds worked, I was glad that their twin telepathy restricted me and Edward from it. We had the privacy inside our own little family and sometimes the silence was very comforting while I was sure they were chatting streams to each other in their heads.
We found out about that gift in September. They had been playing on their dino’s in the Cullen living room when Blaze was looking at Raven. Suddenly Raven said he wanted ‘the blue car’. it held our attention and when we noticed more of those answers without an aloud question, Carlisle and Edward both concluded they must have a telepathic connection, just with each other.
