Reaper Twins: Chapter 5
Bella and Marco said goodbye to Rebekah after school. Bella wasn’t paying much attention, she was caught up on who would try and do all of this. Marco opened the door for Bella, and then got into the driver’s seat.
“Figure out whatever you’ve been in thought about?” Marco asked as he began to drive.
“No, I can’t make any sense who would be strong enough to wipe out the vampire race. I mean a witch could kill a few, but one witch won’t be able to kill so many vampires that it nearly puts them all to extinction.” Bella said running her hand through her hair in thought.
“What if it’s a clan of witches,” Marco said, “You know how against vampires witches are, what if a group of them came together and combined their magic together to take out the vampire race.”
“It’s possible, but even if you get a group of witches together, they would have to do it when there’s a full moon, and the full moon just passed,” Bella said.
“Yes, and dad said that it was going to happen in a month, the timeline would add up.” Marco said, “I’m not saying this is what is happening exactly, but what I am saying is that this could be a good possibility. We have to think of everything.”
Bella groaned, “Alright, but if it is witches, I’m killing all that are involved.”
“You kill them, and I’ll bring them back,” Marco said with a smirk.
Bella smiled, “As long as I can see them die, I’m satisfied.”
“How long until the full moon?” Marco asked.
“4 weeks,” Bella answered.
“We have time to work everything out, we just have to be rational about everything,” Marco said.
Bella nodded, “We’ll take our time, but the leader of all of this is going to die, no exceptions, and no bringing them back.”
“I agree, they could try this again, but you should know, that our secret will eventually come to the light, especially if I bring anyone back,” Marco said.
“I know, but I would like to keep it in the dark for as long as I can,” Bella said, “We would be putting Charlie in danger if our secret were to get out. Can you imagine how many people would come to us for something, and then if they don’t get what they want, they’ll use Charlie as their negotiating weapon.”
“We are stronger, we are faster, if they do anything to Charlie, the only thing they can get out of that is their own death,” Marco said.
“I know, but Charlie deserves a normal life, not one were he’s at risk of being kidnapped,” Bella stated to Marco, “do you think because of what we are, we’re drawn to the supernatural?”
“No, we were human until we got our powers,” Marco said, “You ending up with a town filled with supernatural creatures was just a coincidence, and honestly I think it was just your bad luck.”
Bella smiled, “Than explain why when we move to a new town, we wind up surrounded by the supernatural.”
“Because it keeps our lives interesting,” Marco said with a grin, “Can you imagine eternity without the supernatural? We wouldn’t have anything to do.”
“I guess you have a point,” Bella said with a shrug.
Bella kicked Marco in the chest sending him flying back to a tree, “Score!” Bella yelled with a grin.
Marco groaned, and bounced off the tree and pinned Bella to the floor, “Don’t get overly cocky Bella, you lose focus leaving you open for an attack.”
Bella pushed him off and stood up, “I want to go again.”
“After we go get something to eat, Charlie’s working late right?” Marco asked.
Bella nodded, “Won’t be home until late he has more work here than he did in Forks, but I call rematch when we get back.”
“Yeah, and I’ll beat you in that rematch too,” Marco said with a smug grin, “I have better fighting skills than you.”
“That might be true, but I’m better at using my powers,” Bella said returning the smug grin.
“You can’t always depend on your powers,” Marco said as they headed inside the house from the back yard.
“I’m a good fighter,” Bella said, “The only reason you can beat me is because you just have more balance, as were I have less.”
Marco laughed, and shoved Bella playfully, “Stop making excuses, let’s go change, and then we can go get a bite to eat.”
“Alright, give me 10 minutes and I’ll be done,” Bella said as she headed up the stairs. Marco was about to follow when there was a knock on the front door. “Do you want me to get that?” Bella yelled from upstairs.
“I got it,” Marco yelled back to Bella. He walked to the front door and opened it. “Hello.”
“Hello, is Bella here?” Klaus asked eyeing Marco suspiciously.
“She is, but she’s changing,” Marco said, “I’m Isabella’s older brother Marco.” Marco extended his hand for Klaus to shake. Klaus looked at it suspiciously for a second before shaking his hand.
“I’m Klaus,” Klaus said.
Marco grinned, “I know, the original hybrid, I met your sister Rebekah today while I was at school with Bella.” Bella came rushing down the stairs.
“Go change Marc,” Bella said, “I got this.”
“I’ll be down in a few minutes,” Marco said heading back up stairs.
“You never mentioned you had a brother,” Klaus said to Bella.
Bella smirked, “You never asked, Marco is my twin brother.”
“You have a twin?” Klaus asked with a raised eyebrow.
Bella nodded, “I do, but I’m the better looking twin, it’s a fact.”
“I heard that!” Marco yelled.
Bella smiled, “So what do you need Klaus?”
“I came to invite you to a ball my family will be holding in a few weeks,” Klaus said handing Bella an invitation.
Bella grabbed the invitation from his hands, “Why are you holding a ball?”
“Our mother wants to throw it to show that our family is in unity,” Klaus said.
“Would you mind if I bring my brother with me?” Bella asked looking up at Klaus.
“Not at all,” Klaus said, “Is he the same as you?”
“I am, except I just have better fighting skills,” Marco said with a smirk as he returned to stand beside Bella.
“Jerk,” Bella muttered under her breath to Marco, “We’ll be happy to attend Klaus.”
“That’s good to hear, I’ll see you later Bella,” Klaus said with a goodbye nod to the both of them, “It was nice to meet you Marco.”
Marco nodded, “You too Klaus.” Marcus and Bella waved to Klaus as they closed the door. Marco took the invitation from Bella’s hands and read it over.
“You’re his personal guest,” Marco said, “They’re not inviting the whole town, only selected families, and he’s specifically inviting you.”
Bella shook the thought away and took the invitation from Marco, “He only invited me because I had helped him before, so get your head out of the gutter. Now, let’s go eat, I want that rematch, and we should pick something up for Charlie when we get back.”
“Alright, so tell me, do you like him?” Marco asked as they walked out.
“Can you be a little more specific,” Bella asked as she got into the passenger seat.
“Klaus, do you have special feelings for Klaus?” Marco asked trying to hide a smirk.
“You’re asking if I feel something more than friendship.” Bella asked with an arched eyebrow.
“I am,” Marco said trying to get the information out of his sister.
Bella laughed, “You want to talk about boys with me?”
Marco smiled, “Isn’t gossiping what twins are for?”
“Yes, but not about boys, how about we talk about this whole vampire problem,” Bella said, “I think it does involve witches, a vampire wouldn’t try to take out their own race, and werewolves wouldn’t be strong enough, especially now since there are a lot hybrids, cold ones aren’t capable of killing a traditional vampire, they’re not strong enough, and they’re too flashy to get close enough to do anything. The only option left are witches.”
“Alright, so witches, we have that, but why now?” Marco asked, “There has to be a reason why all of a sudden they’re doing this, witches have hated vampires since they were created, so why all of a sudden are they going to take them all out.”
“Remorse maybe,” Bella said as realization hit her, “Only the creator can kill its creations, whoever created vampires is the only person who can kill them.”
Marco pulled the car over and parked it on the side of the road, “Do you know who created the originals?”
“No, I never bothered on their history,” Bella said.
“Esther Mikaelson,” Marco said, “The mother. The original witch.”
Bella sat in thought before she answered, “And she just so happened to come back. She’s back to get rid of her kids once and for all, but how will killing the originals kill all the other vampires?”
Marco smirked proudly, “Dad once told me, that each vampire holds the blood of their creator.”
“Kill the creator you kill their creations,” Bella said nodding in realization, “So Esther has come back to kill her children, which in return would kill the rest of the vampire community. Why would she want them dead though, they’re her children.”
“Not all mothers love their children Izzy,” Marco said, “We just got lucky.”
Bella smiled, “We did get lucky.”
“So what are we going to do, we can go and kill her now,” Marco said, “Well, if it is her.”
“It has to be her, but we’ll wait it out,” Bella said, “Gather enough information that we can use against her, and when the time is right, we’ll take care of it. We need to know if it’s just her in this plan, or if it’s somebody else is involved.”
“Alright, so now we just collect as much information as we can,” Marco said as he got back on the road.
“I guess we really are going to the ball then,” Bella said.
“Yup, but you shouldn’t dance,” Marco said trying to contain his laugh, “You have two left feet.”
Bella laughed, “If I have two left feet, you have two right feet, it only makes sense.”
“You never did answer my question,” Marco said referring to her feelings for Klaus.
“I know I didn’t,” Bella said with a smirk, “And I doubt I ever will.”
“You know, no one knows you better than your twin,” Marco said.
“I know, that’s why I don’t need to answer your question, because if I already know you, you already have the answer,” Bella said.
Marco laughed, “Maybe I just wanted reassurance of what I think is correct.”
“Well, you’re not going to get it,” Bella said, “Let’s drop this subject and just get something to eat.”
Marco and Bella drove into the Grill parking lot. It was a bit packed since it was night time, but neither twin cared. They walked inside and to Bella’s surprise the booth she always sat in was empty. She took a seat quickly and had a smirk on her face. Marco sat across from her and rolled his eyes at her smirk.
“It’s just a booth Izzy,” Marco said picking at the table.
“No, this is my booth,” Bella said with a smile.
Marco rolled his eyes and sighed, “Are you ever disappointed we didn’t get the chance to be completely normal?”
“We were normal for a while, and I can honestly say I’m enjoying being a reaper more,” Bella said, “What about you?”
“Not really, I actually enjoy being what we are,” Marco said.
“How do you think people would react when they figure it out?” Bella asked.
“I have a feeling there would be a lot of shock, and then some definite sucking up, to turn them back to humans, to resurrect a loved one. Things would probably get annoying,” Marco said.
Matt came over and asked for their orders. “You know, for some reason the bar tender, insists that this booth stay open. She says that it is your booth. She’s really taken a liking to you.”
Bella smiled, “I appreciate it, thank you.” Bella and Marco gave their orders to Matt and once he was out of hearing shot they began to talk again.
“I won’t bring anyone back unless I think they deserved it,” Bella stated.
“I know, I feel the same way, but you should prepare into knowing that we will be bombarded by different requests once word spreads about us,” Marco said.
“Let’s just eat and not stress for a moment, and then we can go home where you can do my history homework and I’ll do your math homework,” Bella said with a grin.
“I don’t have math homework how about English instead?” Marco asked with smirk, “I have a report do, and I know just how much you love to read.”
Bella smiled, “You have a deal, because I really hate history sometimes, and a report would be a piece of cake.”
