Please Save Me!
Well we transitioned into our new home nicely, in Kalispell, Montana. It was closer to the Canadian border. This way we had more room to hunt, and Faith and Hope couldn't possibly harm anyone.
Angela was able to pass as a daycare attendent after school, Ben was able to give both private and open martial arts lessons after school, Faith made the cheerleading squad, Hope decided to try out art classes in school, but Faith filled me in saying that she never really stuck with something for a long period of time.
I decided that I wanted to continue my medical career, but the last hospital I was at didn't really feel comfortable around me, I guess it was because I looked so young, and that made people feel uncomfortable. I already went to the hosptial and I decided that I wanted to be a candy striper. It wouldn't compare to my previous experience with the hospital, but it would have to do for now. This was one of the many drawbacks of being an immortal creature. I would always be a nineteen year old looking girl, no matter how long I was 'alive'.
"Bella, can you drive me and Hope home after my cheerleading meeting and Hope's art honors meeting?? Ben and Angela have work right after school, and I know that you don't start til around three."
I let out a sigh. Faith and Hope haven't got their driver's license yet, but that would all change in a few weeks. That was when Faith and Hope would be getting their license. Then I wouldn't have to worry about them as much. I would still have to watch them when they were around humans for a few more years. They have a few more years in their 'newborn' stage.
I told Faith that I would stay after and drive them home. I nothing else to do anyway.
"Hey, you're Bella right? My name is Tony. We heard you and your family would be coming to this town as well as us."
"Oh my apologies, we know that you are all vampires as well. No worries though, we are too. My coven consists of myself, Bryan, Carrie, Jayme , Elizabeth, and Matthew."
Wow, this was great. We had another coven to hunt with and this way Hope and Faith and everyone could have someone we could relate to instead of having to deal with just humans, but I could tell that the girls liked doing human things. I suppose this would have to do witht the fact they were changed so young, and still want to think that they are human, and not blood-drinking monsters.
"No offense taken, and I know that we all can't wait to meet your family."
"Sounds good. I see that you work at the hospital as a candy striper, I think that it would be good if you all would all come by after you're done with your shift at six."
How did he know where I worked, what I did, and when I got off work?
"By the look on your face it looks like I forgot to mention that I can see into the future, but only certain decisions people make."
Why did that sound familiar to me? Could it be something from my human life that I don't remember too well?
"Is something troubling you Bella?"
I shook off the strange feeling. I didn't need to deal with this right now.
"No, nothing's wrong. We all would be glad to come and meet your family."
He smiled and left. I looked at the clock on my radio in my car and saw that it was already time for Faith and Hope to leave, but they were no where to be seen. Ok, I was going to be late to work, and that wouldn't look good to my supervisor.
I decided that I would get my cell phone out and call them both and see where they were.
Just as I was about to hit call they sped over and got into my car. I let out a sigh and I got back in the car. They always did have impecable timing.
"Bella, you are needed in room one twelve. The patient won't stop hitting the call button."
ugh...Since when did I become this person's maid? Oh wait, it was because I wanted to continue to work in the medical field, but this was ridiculous.
I walked all the way down to the end of the hall and entered the room.
"Please, make all these hallucinations go away! Please! Give me anything, I just want all these 'visions' to go away."
This was so sad, I couldn't do anything to take away her pain. I peeked at her charts and it showed that she had brain cancer and that the chemo wasn't working. I was authorized to give her pain meds, but that was if she was in my hospital. But she wasn't, she was here, and I was just a lowly candy striper. I was starting to see the downside to this whole idea.
I looked at her chars again and I saw that they would be releasing her today, and that they would be sending medication with her to take. But it was just so that she could be comfortable. The brain cancer that she had was very aggressive. She wouldn't be alive much longer.
"I know what you really are. Please, make this pain go away!"
This was surreal. Was this the cancer talking, or was she serious?
"I don't know what you're talking about..."
"Yes, you do. I saw you and your sisters outside, you had superhuman speed. Besides, I saw one of your kind kill your sister with the black hair. I was visiting a friend in New York and I heard a scream. I peeked around the corner. I saw him tackle her and I saw him sink his teeth into her neck. I didn't know what to do, that's when I saw you come in out of no where and rip him to shreds. I'm not going to tell anyone, besides, I don't think anyone would believe me. What with my 'hallucinations', and 'visions'."
I didn't know what to do. She retold the story exactly as it happened. So I guess she knew what I and the rest of my family really was. I couldn't ust forget that this happen, because it did.
I could do one of two things, either let her die knowing what we are and not do anything to try and save her, or I could change her and let her live. That way she wouldn't have to die from a disese that was slowly killing her anyway.
"Miss Anabel, I'm not saying that what you have said isn't true or false, but I will talk it over with my family and I will come and explain what we have all decided."
With that I left and clocked out ten minutes early. I needed to think about this somemore before I even decided to bring it up to them.
"Bella, everything with Anabel will be okay. Trust me, I've seen it."
Ok, this was already getting rather old with Tony. I let out an annoyed sigh and kept on walking. As I walked away I told him, "Thanks, I'll keep that in mind.", over my shoulder. Being around Tony made everything feel like it was going to be ok, but I couldn't help but feel as if there was more to come.
A/N: Ok, so what do you all think? I apologize that I haven't updated in forever. I've been dealing with family issues, and the passing of my step dad and trying to get a handle over my new long-haired chihuahua puppy.
Let me know what you think of this dilemma concerning Anabel and Bella... Anabel is going to be a semi-main character soon ;) so please let me know what yout think of her in your reviews.
