Caleb’s Point of View

“...They had that, they had that” my brothers booming voice yelled as he jumped up from the sofa, waving his fist at the television screen. I shook my head, closing the book I was reading. I had not been paying attention to the football game, all I knew was that this was an important match and Damien’s favourite team were starting to fall behind with only a few minutes left on the timer.

As the clocked ticked the zero, the whistle blew. “No!” he growled, kicking his foot hard against the coffee table in anger. The heavy oak slab flipped and flew across the room, smashing into the television – causing it to spark and crash to the floor. Damien and Ilooked at the destruction, silent and open mouthed.

“What on earth is going on in here, I could hear you from...” The voice cut off, we both turned to look at Selene – who had just come in through the front door. She looked livid, staring at the mess that her mate had made of the house. A snarl ripped up her throat as she charged over to the ruined furniture to examine it – teeth clenched and fire burning in her eyes, she turned to Damien.

“We can get another one” He said quietly and in a sulk, he always pulls this act when Selene gets mad with him, it usually works but today she was not falling for it.

“Do you not know the meaning of antique Damien?” He looked down at his feet, peeping up at her through his lashes. I could not help but laugh, what an idiot. Selene’s eyes snapped to me, narrowing in anger.


“I blame you” she glared at me, folding her arms across her chest. What the hell? “You know what he gets like, you should have calmed him down” I shook my head, of course her perfect Damien could not be at fault, he was... I stopped mid-thought as a scent hit me, it was strong and powerful fogging up my senses, a vampire was close by.

I closed my eyes and focussed on the energy that the vampire was giving out – a female newborn, fresh from waking up. What was she doing alone and away from her creator? I wanted to know more, I pushed myself out there and searched for more – that is when I felt her. The emotions were powerful and harsh, the burning of her thoughts harbouring through my skin and into my body, in pain I tore away from the connection with a gasp.

My eyes snapped open. Everyone was looking at me with their faces screwed up in confusion. My younger sister Valerie had come to perch on my knee, her hand placed against my cheek – a look of worry etched on her face.

“What’s happening?” Val whispered, watching my face carefully. I sat up straight, shaking the feel of that girl’s emotions from me, but her scent was still intense.

“Can you smell that scent?” I asked my family.

“Newborn” Selene confirmed raising her nose in the air. “Is she a danger?” I was not sure about that, from her emotions and energy she was giving off she definitely had the potential to be.

“I can feel her. Her energy is very strong, she is a potential threat” I told them. Valerie looked upset; she shook her head at me.

“She is all alone, we cannot just leave her Caleb” My younger sister had the compassion that I lacked, I was happy to leave her and rid the threat she posed on my family. Selene was just as dubious as me, but Damien was siding with Valerie.

I sighed loudly looking out at my family, I was still unsure about this vampire.

“Remember when we woke up from the change?” My little sister questioned me, standing up from my lap – her hands going to her hips. I did remember and how I loathed that time in my life, if I had not had my coven or my little sister – I would have begged for death. Newborn life was not a pleasant one.

“She may have something we need” I was just finding reasons to keep her alive. I got to my feet and chucked my book down on the chair where I was sat. Valerie looked up at me with a smile on her face. “I want you all to stand behind me, if she is any threat we kill her... understand?” They all nodded, but I knew they did not agree with my way, it was the way I was raised though and I stand by it.

We walked outside in a line formation, stood one behind the other – ready for any advances the vampire may put up. I could not see the girl, but I could hear her footsteps coming up the narrow alleyway – they were rushed at first, but became slow and cautious. Had she caught our scent too? Surely not, that was far too advanced for a newborn – distinguishing scents between human and vampire.

We waited patiently as the girl drew closer and finally came into view. I was somewhat shocked by her appearance, she was stunning. The girl was small and delicate with brown curls, which tumbled to her waist. The clothes she wore were filthy and stained heavily in blood, I briefly wondered if that was her blood or a victims. She wore a look of confusion as she sniffed the air around her. The girls darting eyes came to rest on us and she stopped immediately – crouching slightly in a defensive stance.

I put my hand up, signalling for my family to hold back as I took a few steps forward toward the beautiful girl. She watched me carefully as I advanced toward her. I held my hands up, palms facing her – I wanted her to know I was not going to harm her.

“Hello...” I greeted the girl, but she stayed silent and observed me closely. “I am Caleb Cromwell” She looked between me and my family, her brow furrowed slightly.

“What is she thinking? Is she a threat?” I asked Damien silently in my head, I turned to look at him and he shrugged his shoulders, wide eyed. This was both worrying and exciting, what was she?

“Who are you?” I stared back at the girl awaiting her answer.

“Bella Swan” She whispered very quietly, her eyes flicking between my family members – her stare lingering on Valerie. Bella anxiously rubbed her palm over her left arm awkwardly.
“You drink animal blood?” Her voice was sad, I could not understand that. I was more interested in how she knew about vampire diets; we were clearly underestimating the girl. I looked over at Valerie, who was just as shocked as I was.

“Urm... Yes. How did you know that?” We were all intrigued by her answer.

“I knew a coven of vampires whilst I was human, it didn’t end well. The Cullen’s...” She stopped midsentence, her face twisted in pain as she spoke to us. Even looking at her was agonising, she was clearly hurt by these vampires, it didn’t take a genius to work that out.
“...I don’t know where to go or what to do. I am thirsty and I am pretty sure I am going to end up killing someone soon” Bella looked down at her feet and suddenly a wave of guilt came crashing over me, I could not leave her out here like I had originally intended to.

“We cannot leave her Damien” I turned toward my brother, who shook his head in understanding. His eyes however were fixed on Selene, who looked far from happy. She hated newborn vampires with a passion and over the years we had taken in many – all of which were blood crazed and uncontrollable. Most of them ended with the same fate.

“Like I even have a choice” Selene growled as she stepped up from behind me, walking closer to the girl.

“I hate newborns...” I sighed; she really was not the best at friendly conversations. “... but you need someone to guide you and a place to stay, so if you want – come with us and we will help you” Bella smiled and nodded her head slightly in agreement. I was in shock as Selene put her arm around the girl and walked her back toward the house.

“But just so you know... if you work your way through the town like an all you can eat buffet, it won’t end well for you” hm... Well she almost had it.

Bella’s Point of View ~ 3 Weeks Later

These past few weeks had been the hardest.

I always knew that being a newborn vampire would not be easy, but this was something else. I could barely control myself at the best of times and my emotions were all over the place. Not only that, but I was trying to settle into a coven of strangers, I was so unsure on how to communicate and get to know them all. Opening up and speaking freely to my new coven members was even more difficult, I was so worried they would judge me – or ever worse, I would get hurt again.

I knew I had to try though; this may be the only chance I have to be part of a family again.

I opened up my bedroom door and walked out into the hallway, it was silent and still but I could hear whispers of chatter coming from the living room. I padded off down the hall, the cool skin of my feet sticking to the laminate which covered the floor.

The further I walked the clearer the voices became; as I reached the door I heard my name escape Caleb’s lips – freezing me in spot. They were talking about me?

“For the last time she has not told me anything, don’t you get it? She does not want to talk about it” Selene sounded frustrated and somewhat angry as her brother was becoming persistent. I got on with Selene the most, despite her loathing me for the first week that I came here. Over time we realised we were more a like that we thought and I found talking to Selene easy.

“We need to know her past” Caleb was nice, but there was something about him that made me uneasy.

“Does it matter?” Damien started, he too sounded mad. I could not let them fight for much longer. I pushed open the door and everyone’s head snapped around to look at me as I came into the room. They all became quiet – knowing I had heard their conversation.

“I am ready to talk” I told them as I wandered over and sat beside Selene. They all looked guilty, especially Caleb – who gave me a sad smile. I felt bad for thinking so poorly of him beforehand. They all sat around eagerly awaiting to hear about my past, after all it was something they had been waiting for since I had first arrived.

“It is something that I really did not want to talk about... it is hard for be even to remember” I told them as I looked down at my feet, not wanting to look at any of my coven. I did not know where to start, it was such a full and complex story that Ii did not want to dig deeply into – in fear that it would hurt too much and push me over the edge, I have worked too hard to be set back.

“You do not have to do this Bella, I got impatient... you can talk about this in your own time” Caleb had come to sit in front me, resting his hand on my knee. I shook my head.

“I have to do this. If I don’t I will not be able to move on from them” I shouted in anger. My newborn emotions were getting the best of me; I took an unnecessary long breath to calm myself before getting started.
“I moved to Fork’s last year to live with my dad Charlie, I hated it” I laughed at those memories with Charlie, who I had been grieving for the past few weeks – to which Selene knew about.

“Whilst there I met Edward. He was a vampire and we fell in love... I know a human and a vampire” I scoffed and gave a small laugh; the idea was entirely amusing now that I was a vampire myself.
“... But then everything fell apart, he left me – his whole family left me, when they promised to protect me. They let me die, they left me and I died!” I screamed at the top of my lungs, I had gotten to that emotional edge and crossed far over it, the pressure in my chest finally became too much.  I was upset and more than anything – I was mad... mad at how they gave up on me without a care in the world, mad at how little my life meant to me.

I could feel the anger swelling inside of my body and I could feel my control slipping, the deeps breaths that I took had no effect on my emotions – I could feel Caleb using his control on me, but it only just was holding me back.

Damien stood up and came to sit on my other side; he took my hands in his and pulled me to face him. I knew what he was going to ask me, but I could not do it no matter how hard I tried.

“Please let’s just try it once more” He begged me. In the past few weeks we had been practicing in letting Damien read my thoughts, it was something that Caleb called ‘a shield’ and removing it was far from my forte. I could not do it for long or sometimes at all – it was a real hit and miss, but what harm would trying do?

I closed my eyes and held onto Damien’s hands. I imagined myself in my shield, a small oval bubble surrounding me. I pushed and I pulled at it, slowly I could feel is dispersing. I kept concentration as I ran thought the events of last year in my head – every memory was a stab at my cold, dead heart... but regardless of it being still, it hurt insanely.

I pulled away as I finished my last reminiscence - the moment that I died.  Damien gasped. I opened my eyes to look at him, never before had I seen an expression like his – it was contorted in pain. Seeing my memories really had taken its toll on him, but at least now he knew.

“They should not have left you unprotected like that, they knew the threat was there. You could have stayed human...” he trailed off, finishing his rambling. He still held my hands tightly between his, Selene reached over and put her hand on his shoulder – he sighed loudly, finally letting my hands free.

“Tell us” Caleb asked his curiosity evident in his face.

“I can’t do it...  Damien, Please?” I whispered before getting to my feet. I could not go through all that pain again, reliving the last moments of my life over and over again. I walked from the room, refusing to look at any of my new found family.  I made it back to my room before the yelling started – so they finally knew.
