Bella POV:

Why did they lie to me? I thought they loved me. Mommy and daddy didn't ever lie to me. But then if they did then I never knew. Does everyone lie to other people? I guess they do so that the other person doesn't get hurt, or just doesn't want to say anything.

I stopped running and looked around. I realized that I ran farther than what I wanted. It was going to get dark soon. Momma and everyone would start to worry about me. But then I was starting to realize that what people say isn't always true. So maybe they didn't care that I wasn't there.

But then Momma does love me a lot. I could tell that was true when her and Jasper saved me from Ross. Maybe they do love me....I mean Jasper did come all the way to Houston to save me from Maria...NO! They all lied to me....but they took care of me....they even let me keep Daisy. Even Daddy wouldn't let that happen.

This was all to confusing. I needed to go somewhere else.

I walked a little further and came across a secluded waterfall that turned into a creek. I sat down on a rock and started to cry. I was lost and I had no idea how to get home. I thought that I should have given them a chance to explain themselves better. Now I'm out in the middle of no where and I don't remember how I got here.

"Bella?"

I jumped. I turned to look over my shoulder and saw Ross. I cringed back.

"Bella, I want to apologize for what happened. I want to be your friend."

I saw his eyes, they weren't black like they were when he attacked me. But they were that funny-looking red color. When I looked closer I saw that they had gold specks in them, the gold specks looked like the color Momma's eyes are.

"Why did you attack me? I thought you were my friend, Ross."

"I am your friend Bella. I don't know what came over me yesterday. It was like one minute I was in control of myself, then the next all I couldn't control what I was doing. I didn't want to hurt you Bella, but something wouldn't let me stop."

That makes no sense. Everyone has control over what they're doing. It's not like anyone can come along and control what another person does, right?

"I don't believe you Ross."

"Oh, but you should my dear."

I cringed at the sudden voice. The voice reminded me of that Maria girl's voice. It scared me then and it scares me now.

"Who-Who-Who are you?" I was scared this lady had blond hair that was so bright that it almost looked white. Her eyes were a deep red, and she had dark circles under her eyes. The same circles Ross had when he attacked me. This was starting to scare me.

"Holly, why are you here? I told you that I want to be apart of your coven anymore. I don't like killing people anymore for food. I want to feed on animals."

Holly scoffed, "I see that those Cullens has turned you soft. No matter, I still get what I want." Her gaze turned from him to looking directly at me. I gasped and took a step back, nearly falling off the giant rock I was standing on.

But Ross steadied me.

"Aw, how touching, I see that you truly care for this little human girl, Ross. Well I'll change that right now."

I looked at her and her eyes turned from her bright red, to an almost clear color. I then heard a loud growling. I gasped when I saw Ross struggling with something.

"N-n-no! Stay out of........my head.....Holly!!"

What was she doing? Was she hurting him? But how is that possible, I mean, she wasn't even toucing him.

'Like it Bella? You see, as I'm sure the Cullens lacked to tell you, most vampires have a gift or talent that no other vampire has. As you can see by Ross over there, I can control people with my mind. My mate, Liam, can see into the future like your pixie friend, Alice. James is a tracker, that's how I was able to find you so quickly."

I was speechless. They even had special talents that they kept hidden from me?

"That Jasper fellow can sense your emotions and has the ability to change them, and Edward can read minds. Do you have any questions Bella dear?"

I shook my head no.

"Good. Oh Ross, please show Bella what exactly my power can do."

My attention turned back to Ross. He was closing in on me. I took another step back and slipped and fell back into the water. I could tell that Ross was struggling to fight Holly, but it looked like Holly was winning. I crawled backwards and was cornered. I tried getting up to run away, but I couldn't move. I looked into Ross' eyes. I could tell that he didn't want to do this, and I could tell that he didn't want to.

"Ross....Ross, I know that you don't want to do this."

He shook his head and continued towards me.

"Please Ross, it's me, Bella, your friend."

He squeezed his eyes shut and shook his head again. What happened next shocked me. Ross turned around and looked at Holly.

"What do you think you're doing you bumbling idiot! Do you know who you're dealing with?"

"Yea, I'm dealing with the bitch that tried to get me to hurt someone that I care about."

Ross then leaped and landed onto Holly and started scratching at her. I took this as an opportunity to run away as fast as possible, and not look back.

I was running so fast that I didn't see what was in front of me until it was too late. I bumped into something hard. So hard, that I fell backwards onto my butt.

"Well look what we have here?! A little girl all alone out here in the middle of no where. And not one of her vampire friends here to help her. What should we do Victoria?"

"Hmmm, I'm thinking we should have her all to ourselves, and forget Liam and Holly."

Oh boy, they knew Holly, and that wasn't good news for me. I looked into their eyes and saw that they had the same red tint as Holly.

"Hold still little one, and we will make sure that your death is quick and painless."

"Aw James, don't lie to the little girl."

I covered my face and started sobbing into my hands. All of a sudden, out of no where, I heard a loud growling noise. I peeked through my eyes and saw Jasper, Edward and Emmett between me and the other vampires.

"Bella, are you alright?" I jumped a little bit and turned to my left, and saw Alice and Rosalie. I just nodded my head.

"Alice, Rosalie, get Bella out of here now!"

I was picked up and was whisked away from the woods. As fast as it started I was back at the house.

"Rosalie, you gotta let me check Bella and make sure that she's alright. Why don't you and Alice see if the guys need help with the remains." I was confused, what was wrong with me? Why did my arm hurt all of a sudden? It was starting to throb.

Rosalie and Alice sped off out of the house. That was something I would have to get use to I guess.

"Bella, does anything hurt?"

I pointed to my left arm. I didn't think I would be able to speak, so I just pointed.

He nodded his head and started to gently move it around. I winced when he tried to bend it.

"Bella, it looks like you fractured your left arm. I'm going to go get my equipment, so I can put a cast on it. What color would you like?"

I chewed my bottom lip as I thought about it. Then it came to me.

"I want lime green!"

It was weird. It felt like it did before I knew my new family were vampires. I even felt safer than I had before I knew. I think everything was going to be ok.

"Bella, I made some cookies for you. They're in the kitchen if you want some."

I nodded my head yes, as Carlisle started setting the cast. Esme zipped out and then zipped back in with a plate of warm chocolate chip cookies in one hand a glass of milk in the other.

"Thank you Esme."

"You're welcome darling. You know that you don't have to live here if you don't feel comfortable here."

I chewed my bottom lip and thought about it. Jasper saved me, Rosalie took me in, Alice buys me everything I want, Carlisle is like my own doctor, Emmett is like a big brother to me, and Edward....Well, Edward is still protective of me, and I don't think I'd be able to find another family like them anywhere else. I swallowed the rest of my cookie and took a big gulp of my milk.

"I want to stay. You all are my family and I don't want another family."

Esme and Carlisle just smiled warmly at me, but from outside I heard loud laughing that sounded like Emmett. He was always able to make me laugh, when he started laughing. I took this a sign that they were all happy that I was staying. I was glad for that.

"Esme, can I ask you a question though?"

"Of course, what is it?"

"Can Ross come to stay with us?"

A/N: Ok, so what did you all think? I will have a picture of the waterfall Bella found on my profile, so make sure you check that out. Also check out the poll on my profile.

Again, thank you to all who have reviewed, and especially the ones who've reviewed every single chaper :D

And now for the cookie question, and as requested, this one will be a bit harder ;)

"I think, in most other ways, that I've done the best I could with what I had to work with. But was it right to doom the others to this life? I can't decide." (New Moon, pg.38)

Again, those who guess this correctly will get a shout out in the next chapter ;) so make sure you're right ;)
