here is my twilight fantasy life......
Image Credit: -vintage-aerith @ deviantart.com
it is SERIOUS fantasy, its also SUPER long(I am NOT exaggerating so if you are doing something important, you should wait to read this some other time), some of the parts of the story are not in relation to twilight at all, while others are, so if i get something different than the book, its probably on purpose, and I’m not wrong, I’m just making stuff up!
also it is in a first-person story-thingy so if you get lost, sorry! AND it is my first story-thingy(haha) so dont sue me if its THAT bad. just tell me where i can improve! COMMENT PLEAZ!
My name is Mai Bly Nashota Unega, which is Native-American for coyote-white-tall-twin(try saying that five times fast), but I prefer to be called just Mai. My parents gave me this name because I am long, lanky, and extremely stealthy (I can easily
sneak up behind anyone without them even realizing I am in the room..it's funny, really, but my family kind of gets mad at me because I scare them daily). Also when I am in my wolf form, I resemble more of a coyote than a wolf, I am very tall, a white wolf(right now, I don’t have a trace of white color on me at all
, which is weird considering you usually have some of your color transferred from your human form to your wolf form...but when I was born I had hair the color of snow), and a twin! But my brother, Jacob, who is 10 hours, and 3 minutes younger than I am, completely resembles a wolf. Lucky for me, we are the same height in human form, and the same size in wolf-form, so there’s not competition.
I am 17 years old, about 6ft tall, have dark tan skin, dark brown hair, and dark green eyes. As I said before, I am tall and skinny, but I'm not saying that I couldn't take you on! My brother says that sometimes I have an ego bigger than myself, but whatever. He doesn't know anything! I like to rub it in his face that I am older than him by more than 10 hours..it's funny to see him mad like that!
I think that the first time I phased was when I was like 15 or something. I was actually in the middle of class, when I thought that somebody had turned up the heat a little too high. I had to go to the nurses office, they called my dad, and he came and got me. I fainted in the car from the pain, so I don't remember most of it. I only just woke up 5 days later
, when my dad told me everything about who I was. And I mean everything
. The amount of data that he put in my head, probably could have filled up two whole La Push libraries. And what a load of data, let me tell you.
Some of the things he told me, well, I still don’t know if I believe him. But it has been 2 years since I first changed, so I have pretty much lived being a werewolf, the upsides and downsides of it.
Looking back, I call the whole first-phase thing a learning experience for me, and even Jacob. Considering that he phased about 10 hours later than I did, my dad just explained everything to both of us. Jacob was super freaked out that what had happened to me was going to happen to him. So when his time did come, he was out for a while, missing his friends and school, yada yada yada.
Once he phased though, he started to hang out with this group of kids, gang is more like it, and who I just recently found out are part of the pack. This made me seriously pissed off that my dad hadn’t said anything, considering the leader of the gang, Sam, had phased some time ago. But luckily I
had someone to tell me what was going on, while Sam had no one when he phased. He pretty much thought that he was going crazy. I don’t know what I would have done without my dad...
Hmmm....ok so some more fun facts about me are I love fencing, surfing, running(I wonder why..), rock climbing, and jumping out of airplanes. Yes, I like jumping from planes. I get this surge of adrenaline that I absolutely love
, just the fact that I may not survive the fall makes my heart race. There’s no doubt about it, I’m an adrenaline junkie. Oh and one time I tried cliff diving, and THAT is the best feeling ever
. I did it once with Sam when I was 16, and after that, my dad got super mad with me and I haven’t been allowed to go since. If it were up to me, I would be up there every day, the freezing air in my face, cold water chilling my core.........god.
The funny thing is, I don’t go to the La Push high school. I go to Forks for high school. Jacob goes to La Push, which is half the reason that I didn’t go to the school closest to my house. The other half the reason that I go to Forks high school is because all my friends, and I mean all
my friends go to La Push, and I really needed to make some more friends. I wanted to mix it up a bit after middle school.
I am definitely an outgoing person. I know most people in Forks now, which means my life isn’t just based around La Push people, who which I’ve known since I was a child. I like to meet new people, of any age group, any social group, etc. My best, best, best
friend though is a girl named Bella. If we were two puzzle pieces, we would fit perfectly together. Whatever quality I have, Bella doesn’t, and vise versa. Looks wise, she’s my opposite. Personality wise, the same thing. She is a very to-herself kind of girl. She has a few friends, and I’ve tried to introduce her to a couple of mine, she gets along fine with them, but she doesn’t seem too comfortable around anyone she doesn’t know. People are always really surprised that we are friends because we are so different. But I guess this just proves that opposites attract!
Oh and did I mention that my brother has the BIGGEST
crush on her? It’s extremely awkward being around those two because he’s always like drooling over her. It probably has to do with a little something we call imprinting. It’s like this weird werewolf thing that when a werewolf sees his official “mate,” he will like be totally infatuated with her for the rest of their lives. And the girl that he imprinted on will realize that he is the best thing that ever happened to her, and her emotions will eventually match his. But it’s usually only a few werewolves that imprint. A couple of Jacob’s gang friends have imprinted, Sam for example is going to get married to this girl named Emily. She is really great, like a big sister really. And it helps that she knows our secret. It’s kind of a given that she does know it because once the werewolf has imprinted, the girl has got a reason to know why he is drooling all over her, even if she likes it just as much.
Yeah so I’m almost 100% sure that Jacob has imprinted on Bella. I try to go to her house most of the time, because it gets kind of annoying with Jacob following us around everywhere. I think that she is finally warming up to him. He’s actually good natured, just a little annoying at times...most of the time.
So that’s the happy side to my life, and here’s the not-so-good-but-still-happy-for-me side. Our kind just recently started to change. Well, it did change before, but that was only when they
came. And by “they” I mean the vampires. Considering the werewolf’s mortal enemy is the vampire, we don’t get along very well. So when they come into our area, we start changing again. It happens off and on, every so often, but the family of vampires that live here now have lived here for a couple years. They even have been able to survive without drinking the blood of humans. They have managed to survive on animal blood, whatever they can find around here.
What’s hardest for me though, is that the “younger” ones(they are stuck in young bodies, but they are actually extremely old), Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper, Alice and Edward Cullen, all go to my school. I had to beg and plead to go to this high school because my dad didn’t want me to be near them “bloodsuckers,” he calls them.
I am the only one in the whole pack that can stand the Cullens without having the urge to snap their necks. To me, they hold just a big of secret from everyone as I do, and I don’t let it get to me. It’s easier to live like that, rather than phasing every time I think they are going to do something wrong. Haha my brother has done that many a time. The Cullens aren’t allowed on the La Push reservation, so Jacob doesn’t see them often, but whenever they do get too close, it’s like he can sense it and starts to phase, ready just in case they “attack.” I’ve pretty much just got a who-cares attitude. Whateva.
Almost a month ago to the day, I started to get this strange feeling whenever I was around Edward Cullen.(this just happened to be the same day he started talking to me for the first time.) It was like I didn’t think that he could take care of himself, and I needed to be around him at all times to protect him. It was the weirdest thing. I have almost all my classes with him, but in each one we sit on opposite sides of the room. I could still sense him and smell him though....and he stinks. It’s this weird thing where we both smell gross to each other.
Here’s what happened a month ago...
I was just walking up to French class with Bella, when I smelled him. He was near the cafeteria, about 50 kilometers away. I was sidetracked. Bella even noticed.
I looked at her, confused.
”Are you on this planet today? Were you even listening to me?”
”Uh yeah you were saying something about.....about.....sorry, I’ve really been distracted today.”
”Yea I can tell. Let’s just go to class.”
”Just come on.”
Reluctantly I walked up the steps into my French class.
”Bonjour Mai, Isabelle.”
Hello Mai, Isabelle.
Once everyone was in the room, I smelled him.....the teacher started talking again.
”I have assigned each of you new seats, and will put them up on the overhead.”
Once she set the sheet up, I searched for my name. Mai, Mai, Mai......I was sitting in the very back, in the left chair of the middle table. I didn’t bother to see who was sitting next to me, until I looked up when I got there. Crap. It was him. The teacher had put the two of us together! Ugh! If she only knew. Once Edward and I locked eyes, we both simultaneously walked up to the teacher.
I got there first.
Um, excuse me Madame. Would it be too much of a problem if I could sit in another seat? I don’t think that I will be able to concentrate.
At this point, Edward had pulled up beside me. I didn’t have to look, his stench was amazingly close. On impulse, I pulled away. We locked eyes again, and I blushed. I thought, “I don’t ever blush. What is wrong with me?” I looked back at the teacher. Edward had started speaking to her.
Madame, I think it would benefit the both of us, Mai and I(I liked the way he said that....what is my problem?!), if we sat in different seats.
Well Mr. Cullen, Ms. Black, unfortunately for you, you are just going to have to suffer this semester sitting next to each other. If this repulses you so, you are going to have to bring it up with the principal. Now, please take your seats, I must get started.
I’m sure my mouth had been open this whole time. Edward’s voice had completely allured me. I just stared at him, my heart beating fast. He then turned around and walked to the back of the room. I just stood there. I was probably drooling, watching how gracefully he walked.......
Ms. Black, if you are done staring, would you please take your seat!
That’s when everyone started laughing, which snapped me out of my little voyage to space. Me, being the show-off as my brother claims me to be, smiled, took a little bow, and walked to the back of the room.
God the smell! I tried to scoot my chair as far as it would go away from him. He was watching me, and when I looked at his face, he grinned and laughed. I swear I heard wind chimes. That’s what his laugh sounded like. I saw that most of the girls in the class looked back at this compelling noise. I blushed again and smiled back.
Avez-vous su que vous sentez comme un chien?
Do you know that you smell like a dog? He said to me.
I just blinked at him. He laughed again.
Madame had started her lecture, and so I tried
to pay attention, but to no prevail. So instead of listening to Madame babble on, I tried to block out all noise. This was one thing that I could do. I am able to block out noises, loud noises. Like hearing a huge concert to nothing in seconds flat. So I did. But blocking out one of my senses meant that another was a super-sense. This time, it was my sense of smell. Bad choice. All I could smell was the scent of his skin. It smelt both repulsing and like some sort of drug. It made me want more and more and more of it. I looked over at him, and he was staring at me again, his mouth turned upwards ever-so slightly. I don’t know what possessed me, it was either his cute smile or the smell, but at that moment all I wanted to do was kiss him, to taste that smell and to breathe in, and to hold onto him forever. I was out of breath. I scooted my chair back into its regular position so that I was closer to him. I kept moving closer, closer, closer...
(Madame had apparently been trying to get my attention for some time)
I fell out of my chair, and trying to keep my balance, grabbed onto Edward’s sweater. I let go as soon as I grabbed it. I had managed to feel his skin underneath it, because it was so cold. But I felt as if I everything in my body had heated up, and then I started trembling. I knew that I needed to get out of there. I stood up as fast as I could, and darted out the door without looking back. I heard the teacher calling after me to come back, but I knew my secret would be revealed if I did. Once I was out of sight of the classroom, I broke into a sprint. I was still trembling, and was very surprised I hadn’t changed yet. I ran until I got to the back of the school where there was a small stretch of trees beside the beach. Soon as I got into the cover of the firs, I was trembling so violently that I had to stop running. I lost my concentration and tripped, falling into one of the dead tree trunks that was laying in front of me. I heard a snap, but I was in so much pain I didn’t know if it was something of mine that broke or the tree. So much pain! I just want it to all go away..go away..go away.........
I don’t know how long I had been laying there, but I knew when I phased. I slowly sat up on my haunches and started panting. I didn’t open my eyes, just let myself breathe in, and out, and in, and out, letting the wind blow through my fur. I could feel my clothes under the pad of my paw. That’s when I realized I wasn’t alone. I sniffed......Oh my god. I opened my eyes, stood up and started growling, baring my teeth. There he was, leaning against a tree 5ft away. Edward had a very solemn look on his face, not acknowledging that I was there, but just staring at me. I stopped growling, but didn’t let my guard down. That’s when I heard him inside my head.
They are looking for you.
I tilted my head to the side, confused because I hadn’t seen his lips move. ”How can he talk without moving his lips?”
Why do you think, Mai?
Oh my gosh! Can you read my mind?
It’s one of the things that I can do, yes.
Oh.........Do you always do that?
Act so calm like there’s nothing out of the ordinary going on.
Well I’m sorry that I am more confident than most.
What is that supposed to mean?
I started to growl again.
Don’t worry. I am not making fun of you, just people in general.
If a dog can blush, I just did. I didn’t think.....you....
You are never this nervous around people.
He takes a step closer, I sit down. Why are you choosing now to be nervous?........Do I make you uncomfortable?
He was sitting on a log next to me. I jumped up, and yelped because of how fast he got to me.
DON’T EVER DO THAT AGAIN!
I screamed in my head. I growled and glared at him from my position on the log. He was laughing. WHAT!? You scared me!
It’s nothing....Why don’t you phase back? There’s no danger here.
I just looked at him, dumbfounded.
No DANGER?! What part of “mortal enemies” do you not get? Here we are, the two of us, a werewolf and a vampire, alone, in a forest, with hundreds of witnesses not far away! We shouldn’t be here together, we aren’t allowed, and I don’t want it to end up in a fight!
No one’s coming, trust me. No one knows we are here. They do know that you ran out of the classroom without any explanation and that I volunteered to come and get you. Anyways, if you were phased back we’d be in less trouble if we got caught.
Damn, he was right. I looked down at my shredded clothes. I looked back up at him.
In the time that it took me to gesture to the school he had grabbed my bag and dropped it at my feet. I yelped again, and then glared.
I just stared at him...........will he take a hint?!
Excuse me, but I’d prefer it if you weren’t watching me get dressed.
He smiled and was gone. I really hoped that he hadn’t left for good. As quickly as I could, I phased, and covering myself, put on my extra clothes. I sat down on the log, carefully picking up every scrap of clothing that had been shredded. I didn’t want to leave any evidence of me being there. Shredded clothes would be a real question bringer-upper.
I knew he had came back because I smelled him. This time I didn’t yell, because he had come up a little louder than normal. I looked to my left, and he sat down. I was still frowning, I didn’t want to give him the satisfaction of a smile.
I’m sorry for whatever I did to make you hate me.
I looked at him, mouth open.
I don’t hate you. I’m more worried about someone finding out about this little excursion.....how could someone hate you......
What was that?
What was what?
I said a little to hastily. Nothing...never mind...Ugh!!!
His face softened up a little. What’s wrong?
I don’t know. I....I.....
I started to shuffle my feet, and he noticed. I turned around and looked at the trees ahead. He started talking to my back.
I have a theory about this little situation.
It seems that you are nervous right now. In fact, you have been like this every time I’ve seen you today. Could it be that you are nervous........around me?
What?! No...that’s not......not true.......can’t.....it just can’t.......be.......true........I mean...why would I be? There’s nothing....special....about you......
Nothing special hmm? I believe you thought differently in French class.
I spun around and almost fell over. I hadn’t realized that he was so close. The smell was, once again, intoxicating.......If he hadn’t moved back a step I would have passed out.
I.......I don’t know what....you.....are......talking........about.....
He had stepped back to his original position, closer to me, and he was breathing at least 6 inches away from my face. In that moment, I wanted to tell him all my secrets, to share them with him, and to tell him how I felt. But I quietly wished that he would stop breathing so that I
could breathe. He didn’t budge.
His name rolled off my tongue, I.....umm.....actually was thinking about......about.......about you today.......a lot....in fact......although I’m not sure why. I’ve never felt this way before, until today. It's like my mind just decided that I.....liked you. Like my eyes opened up finally. And of course it just had to be you, your vampire self, and me my wolfy self. Mortal enemies and all. It would......couldn’t.........ever happen........Oh my god. I hope I didn't imprint on you!....I mean, it would be nice, but would be terrible.....
He was still so close
. I didn’t think that I would be able to control myself for much longer.
You know, Mai........the only reason that I said that was because..I wanted to see if you felt the same why. I don’t know why, but today, today I’ve been so happy. And when I walked into class and smelled you.......well, you smelled sweeter than anyone I have EVER met. It would be amazing if you imprinted on me. It would explain so much. And I know what you mean by how we could never, ever, be together. It would just be.......be......
This was the first time I had ever seen Edward at a loss for words. It surprised me, and I felt the heat again, flowing through my feet to my face, where I blushed and smiled. He smiled back........his face inches from mine. He put his hand on the side of my face, and kissed me.
It was electric, but gentle. I had closed my eyes, so when his lips touched mine, they were cold as ice, like his skin, but surprisingly warm once we touched. I didn’t start to phase, which was great, a blessing in disguise. His tongue traced the shape of my lips, we explored each other’s mouths with fierce intensity. He tasted even better than he smelled. My arms moved up around his neck, his arms about my waist, and we kept our faces entangled together, unaware of the world around us. I was having a hard time breathing, but I noticed that he had stopped breathing all together. I put my hands to his chest, but was a little surprised that I felt no heartbeat. That’s when reality set in again. We could never be together...But I loved this so much!
That’s when I smelled her(my senses had been occupied up to that moment). I opened my eyes, and pulled my face away, slowly.
Edward. Someone’s been here.
I know. I can hear their thoughts. I think she is back at the school already. It's ok. Here, listen.
He looked into my eyes, and I felt like there was some sort of cold liquid seeping into my ears. That’s when I heard it.
Oh...oh my goodness....I really don’t want to get caught out here.....I’m glad I got such a good picture! This will go great in the yearbook....the forest is so creepy though! I’ll have to get reassigned......I thought the noises were ghosts...phh....I am just SO naive sometimes!.....Ah! The yearbook room..
I pulled myself away from Edward’s gaze until the cold in my head was gone.
I wonder what she was doing out here?
I’m not completely sure, but I think we might want to get that picture....
He smiled slightly at me.
Oh my god.
I started breathing fast. That picture....was of us!!!! Oh no, I can’t let this happen! My dad ALWAYS reads the yearbook! I don’t know what he’ll say......We can’t let this happen!
He was just staring at me. What if we just let them put it in the yearbook?
I glared at him. ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!!!
I mean, what if this picture helps our families? What if.....what if they realize that our two families can live together, in peace? It would make living here so much better.
I stopped and considered this. It would be nice to have Jacob behave around the Cullens, and even for the whole pack it would be beneficial. I looked back at Edward, studying his perfect face, and imagining his perfect lips on mine. Yeah, I could totally live with that.
Ok. So I see what you mean, but what makes you think that they’ll go for this? It’s taken them years to come up with this damn treaty! Now we have to convince them that we can live together? This could break out in a war.
Edward stepped closer and closed the gap between us. He pulled my face in with his right hand, and kissed me with even more intensity than before. He pulled away. Just think about it. We’ll talk to our parents when the time comes.
And then he was gone.
THATS IT! for now at least. i might continue it if everybody likes it. so pleaz comment with suggestions and what you thought about it! FRANKS!
