FanFiction 1st Place Winner

Here is our first place winner’s story…

Epilogue

A dream is defined as a succession of images, thoughts, or emotions passing
through the mind during a state of unconsciousness. This was otherwise known
as sleep. The term would never relate to myself, however, as sleeping was a
luxury not obtainable to my kind. To a vampire. 

Another definition of the same word, conversely, is a wild or vain fantasy.
This definition seemed more appropriate when associating the word, dream, to
myself. Wild and vain, indeed. 

My egotistical nature seemed to be everywhere at once as I closed my
eyelids. It burned there, in the pictures that were painting themselves in
my mind. And suddenly it was as if I was hearing my own thoughts. Thoughts
that I struggled to keep obscured from myself. If I didn’t know better, I
would assume I was dreaming. 

Daydreaming perhaps? Absentmindedly dreaming while awake?

Ah. But my mind was not absent at all. In fact, the image I was painting in
my mind was both behind my eyelids and in front of them. 

Perhaps I only wished for it to be a dream. Or more suitably, a nightmare. 

“Is this a part of your first day of school ritual?  Sitting in your car
until it’s over?” My eyes opened to the sound of the voice, a reflex
reaction. Bella sat beside me, leaning forward in an attempt to catch my
gaze. 

“Not exactly,” I muttered, glancing out the tinted window. The students
passing eyed the Volvo furtively, possibly waiting for the passengers to
emerge. A task that I was suddenly dreading. 

“What’s wrong, Edward?” 

I sighed and turned towards her. Just staring at her was a constant reminder
of how much I truly would like to drive away with her and never come back.
Her eyebrows furrowed over her eyes making them appear darker, not the
brilliant gold they usually were. 

“I’m fine,” I lied, smiling, urging her concern away. “Are your ready?”

Despite my effort, she frowned. “Sure.” 

I departed the car in a human pace and walked to other side, opening the
door for Bella. 

She got out quickly and eyed the melancholy clouds overhead. I grasped her
hand. 

“Alice was purposing we play a game of baseball this afternoon.” I was
trying to make small talk, an attempt to distract myself. “Is that something
you’d be interested in?” 

We were walking towards the school now and Bella stared straight ahead. Her
exceedingly thick mahogany hair obscured her face and my fingers reached
forward to brush it behind her ear. 

“Mhmm,” she mumbled in response. “Sounds like fun.” Her voice was suddenly
detached. 

“Bella?”

“I wonder if I’ll be jealous,” she mused suddenly, stopping and turning her
body towards me. 

I stared at her a moment, speechless. She nodded her head to the right, and
her eyes signaled for me to look. I followed her lead and received a glimpse
of a group of girls that hadn’t spotted us yet. They sat at a picnic table
with their heads inclined towards one another, constantly flipping their
hair over their shoulders in an odd jerking motion. They all wore matching
outfits; short pleated skirts and sweaters, all an unsettling shade of
yellow. 

“Jealous?” I asked, turning back towards Bella. 

She nodded her head, and bit her lip. Her expression was not uneasy however,
she looked merely thoughtful. 

“What do you mean?” I was more than wary now. Could she tell? 

“Well,” she sighed, glancing around quickly before continuing, “I’m a
vampire now.”

I nodded. 

“And that means that my hearing and all of my other senses are enhanced.
Correct?” 

I raised an eyebrow, but nodded anyway. The action was simple enough, but it
only took a simple thought to be whispered across my mind for the nod to
turn into a cringe. 

Wow, new girl’s a hottie. I wouldn’t mind tapping that. 

I hadn’t realized that my eyes had been closed until they snapped open to
find Bella staring at me inquisitively. 

“You can’t read their minds,” I sighed, nodding my head in the opposite
direction. Bella looked at the group of overly hormonal teenage boys
fleetingly before turning back towards me. 

“They’re thinking… about me?” Her eyes widened in disbelief. The smooth pale
skin of her forehead wrinkled.  

I chuckled at her absurdity. Grasping her hand, we began walking again. The
school Carlisle had chosen was perfect. The campus was composed of a series
of buildings, similar to the school we had left back in Forks, Washington.
The weather here was even well attuned to our desire to remain discreet. The
population was slightly larger than the one we had left back in Forks
however, but that could also work to our advantage. Less people meant less
gossip. And the Cullen family wasn’t one to avoid gossip for too long.  

 “You’re too beautiful for your own good,” I explained, answering her
earlier question. We walked through the red door frame of a small building,
the first one on campus. The letters on the door read LOC E RO M. You could
see the outlines of the missing K and O. 

Bella made a sound of doubt in the back of her throat. 

“You don’t believe me?” 

We arrived at the locker Bella had been assigned. Her expression was still
thoughtful as her fingers danced over the combination dial just a little too
quickly…

Oh my god. She must really want to get her locker open.

“Too fast, Bella” I murmured close to her ear. 

“Slower?” She asked surprised. 

I nodded and she shook her head, muttering something under her breath. 

“I believe you,” she answered finally, staring into the empty space of her
locker with indignant eyes. “But there’s no reason to be jealous.” 

I couldn’t answer her for a moment. It wasn’t until she glanced up at me.
Her teasing smile was even beautiful. 

“I only married you, deceived both of my parents, became a vampire and moved
to Alaska,” she shrugged, still smiling. “I’m sure I could just blow all of
that off and get myself a nice hormonal human boy.” 

Even though her words were meant to be teasing, a fresh wave of guilt ran
cold through my veins and my answering smile was forced. I was positive it
hadn’t reached my eyes. 

Of course she noticed. Her small pale face fell in panic for a moment before
she rearranged her features and smiled at me cautiously. “I regret nothing,”
she reminded me, and her words eased an unknown sense of pain in my chest.
“I love you. Forever,” her eyes searched mine, and her hand reached up to
touch my cheek. Rock on rock. Ice on ice. Finally she pulled her head back
and her expression became frantic. “Right?”

Her anxiety quickly pulled me from the fog of remorse and I laughed.
“Remember when I told you that you don’t see yourself clearly?” 

“Of course.”

“Well, when you look at me, you obviously suffer from the same blindness.” I
tilted my chin towards my chest, willing her to see the love that I knew
settled there, in my eyes. How could it not? My love for her was everywhere.
It ran from the tips of my fingers, through my venom filled veins, to my
silent heart, to the tips of my toes. It was every part of me. She was every
part of me. How could she doubt that?

She must have seen it, because her answering smile mirrored my feelings. 

Just do it. Go right up to her. No big deal. 

Oh, no. 

I heard the thought a moment too late. He was already walking towards her.

“Hey! You’re Isabella Cullen, right!?” The blonde haired boy resembled a
beanpole, his legs too tall and thin for the rest of his body. His face was
round and his eyes were icy blue. 

Bella met my eyes for a moment and her golden irises sparkled with a type of
amusement that I wasn’t sure should calm me or make me lungs stop pumping. 

“It’s Bella, actually,” she told the boy, closing her locker before turning
to look at him. 

“Oh. Bella is it?” the boy mumbled. “Well, Bella, I was wondering, since
you’re new and all, if you would like me to show you around campus. A little
one-on-one tour.” The boy visibly glared at me at the conclusion of his
small rant. 

“Actually,” Bella grinned, backing up a little until her back collided with
my arm, “Edward has been here before. He can show me around.”

The boys eyes appraised me in distaste. “I’ve been going to this school
since kindergarten, and I don’t remember seeing you around.” 

Ha, nobody pulls one on Mike Newport. 

“Mike Newport is it?” I wondered, tilting my head in thought. I guess some
things never change. 

Bella’s back quivered with suppressed laughter. 

The boy looked stunned. 

How the heck…

The shrill sound of a bell rang over head and the hallway was suddenly
filled with the sound of new shoes squeaking loudly against the linoleum.

“Well, I guess we better go. It was nice meeting you… Mike,” Bella grinned  

She turned and began pulling me away before I had the chance to remind him
of all the good times he had  back in elementary school. 

Our laughter was all too expected and it bubbled in our throats before we
made it out of the Locker Room building. 

“That was…” Bella was still chuckling as she bit her lip, searching for
words, “Oddly familiar.”

My agreement was silent as I reached for her hand. As always, it fell into
mine blindly. 

“So,” I probed lightly, making a show of staring at the converging clouds,
“Have you discovered your degree of jealousy yet?” I was only mildly
curious, really.  

Bella glanced at me out of the corner of her eye. From there, her gaze
shifted around the different students. 

The sudden motion was so abrupt that at first, my only concern was the fact
that Bella was using her unnatural speed around humans. But then, I realized
that her swift moment had resulted in her lips pressed against my own, and
then I had no concerns. 

Kissing Bella was like nothing I could describe. 

Fire could turn me to ash. 

Venom could scar my skin. 

But Bella’s kiss was the only thing that had the power to make me melt.  

When she pulled away, she was smiling. I knew we had created a scene, but at
the moment, thoughts, school, and everything around me, trickled away. And
all I could see was Bella.

“Forever,” I whispered. 

She stood on her tip-toes.

 And I melted again.

  6. Abby.... suffering from Obsessive Cullen Disorder says:

    I really enjoyed this. I like reading it from Edward’s perspective…. cus it’s totally different from Bella’s. I think it’s a great story! I like how you hear how Edward sees Bella not the other way around. I mean, ya, I missed hearing about how perfect edward is but it was nice to hear about Bella’s beauty.

    • Isabella says:

      I think the person should do a version of Jacob and Bella!!! It would be awesome for Team Jacob fans! (Such as me!) Do’t you think?? Also it’s so obvice that Mike Newport is Mike Newton’s descendant!!! DUH! It’s in his name! Mike Newport!!

  7. rachel says:

    THAT WAS AWESOME! whoever wrote that should be an author. It could have so been added to the end of Breaking Dawn. I would have been completely satisfied but what happened to Renesme? That was my only beef. other than that, it was great.
    Great Job!

    I seriously want more, LOL.
    See, if you knew me in real life, you would know that I REALLY liked it.
    When I like a story, I read the entire thing at normal pace, I blank out from everything else around me and paint pictures of the scene(s) in my mind.
    Different emotions or situations cause me to feel the way that the characters would.
    They smile, I smile.
    They laugh, I laugh.
    They cry, I cry.
    See?
    It was amazing :)

  33. emma says:

    that was awesome

  34. Madison says:

    Umm….. NO offense…. but uh… boo. I didn’t like it. I think the plot that theyve conjured up is a very good idea, but the actually writing was….. Not the best. And I’m not sure they even know what some of the better words they used mean… I’m just saying. Still, the writer is very good at coming up with creative plotlines, I will say. I just think the wording, etc. could be much, much better.

  35. TaraLovesTwilight says:
