Chapter 1: adopted

-Bella's POV-

I ran through the forest. I tripped and fell over a rock and fell down crying. My parents were gone. I saw them. I saw the person hurt them. I might be five, but I knew my only family was gone. I lay their crying.

I felt an arm around me. I took up and through the tears I saw a women. She had long brown hair and golden eyes. She was the most beautiful person I've ever seen. "What are you doing here?" I continued to cry. "What's your name?"

"Bella Swam." I was picked up the lady.

"I'm Maria Jones." Maria ran faster then I thought was possible. We came to a house and she put me on a bed. "Go to sleep Bella." I obeyed without even thinking about it.

When I woke up a teenage boy was next to me. "Hello, I'm Johnny." The boy was tall; he had brown eyes, and light brown hair. He wore a smile on his face. "I'm the oldest in The House, but I won't be here for long." I looked at him confused. "Maria waiting downstairs for you. She told me to bring you to her when you wake up."

Johnny held out a hand and brought me downstairs. I was brought to the dinning room where there were three other kids. Two girls and one boy, one of the girls looked the same age as me. She had dark brown hair and brown eyes. The boy looked not that much older. He had blonde hair and blue eyes. The last girl looked not too younger then Johnny. She had red hair and hazel eyes.

"Bella," Maria said. "Come, sit." I sat down in the chair next to the girl my age and I saw Johnny go over and kiss the other girl. "Bella this is Kate, Paul, Tina, and you know Johnny. Everyone this is Bella." Everyone smiled at me, but I kept staring at Maria. She's so beautiful. No one else stared at her though.

We ate breakfast, but Maria kind of just picked at it. I don't know if I saw her put anything in her mouth. "Everyone go play, I need to talk to Bella." I sat there alone with Maria. "I went to the police station. They tell me your father and mother are dead." I nodded and was about to cry again. "And you have no family left."

I did start crying. Maria put her arms around me again. "Bella there are two choices for you. You can go to an orphanage." The word was said with such hatred. "Or you can stay here. This is called The House by most. I take in children with no family and raise them until 14. When they're 14 I send them to a boarding school, so they can meet new people and so there is more room for new kids. Would you like to stay here?" I nodded. Maria smiled and put me on the floor.

-One-Year Later-

I loved living in The House. Kate and Paul were like my best friends in the whole world. Johnny was gone and Tina was gone too. Turns out Tina had only been a year younger then Johnny and left just a few weeks ago. They were going to be together again, which was good because they both liked each other a lot. There was a new boy two years younger then me called Henry.

There was one thing I was confused on. Maria's eyes were gold, but when I asked Kate she said they were brown. Everyone else also said they were brown. "Maria, can I talk to you?"

"Sure honey." I was sitting in the kitchen with only Maria there. "Why are your eyes gold." Maria dropped the eggs she was carrying which caused them to break she stared at me.

"What do you see when you look at me?" I told her I see the most beautiful person in the world. "My power doesn't work on you." Maria sat down. "Bella, I'm a vampire." I looked at her shocked. She began to tell me about vampires and how she lived.

Turned out when she was human centuries ago she was abandoned by her parents. She lived in an orphanage, which was really horrible. She was starved and left for dead by the caretakers when a vampire attacked her and turned her. She didn't want anyone to go through that so when she had enough self-control she started taking in children. Apparently it wasn't too long ago, well according to vampires not to long ago, probably about 50 years ago. Her power as she said was to make people believe something. The other looks at her and sees how she is, but she makes them believe they see something else. It was why she was able to raise kids, because they believe she is aging.

"Looks likes the plans for you have been changed Bella." I looked at her. "You're not going to be going to the boarding school when you're older. I'm going to have to change you." I must have looked scared. "Not till your 18, after you graduation from high school. I just don't know what to do after that."

I didn't know what she worried about. "What's wrong?"

"I'll explain things when your older just know that you can't tell anyone." I nodded. "Now help me clean this up." I went and helped Maria clean up the eggs. "Go play." I ran off to play to Kate and Paul not realizing how my life was going to be different.

AN: I know it's short, but the chapters will get longer. Cullens come in next chapter. R&R.

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...
