"Okay! You can ask me questions now if you wanna, and if you would please snuggle me while doing it. It's going to be easier if you explain me to them after I explain me to you."

Rosalie locates a hair ribbon and starts braiding Aurene prettily. "Can you tell me what happened to your mommy and daddy and uncle?"

Permalink

"Mm. I know about my mommy and daddy, but I don't know about my uncle. My mommy had me in her tummy, but when daddy got me out, the..." She squints and remembers her Uncle Blair's exact phrasing, "'venom didn't take fast enough' and she didn't make it. And then my daddy was really sad and I think wanted to go, too, and Uncle Blair said it was kinder. But I do not know what happened to him, because I was sleeping and then he threw me anyway and told me to run, so I did." Little sniffle, can it be snuggle time please. "But I think I must have done something wrong because all of the pictures were bad and I can't find him anywhere and I had to do so much swimming to get to any of the good ones."

Rosalie snuggles her very snugly. "The pictures were bad?"

Permalink

"Mhmmm. Some of them had fire and then darkness and some of them had scary vampires with murder eyes yelling and a few had scary people in dark cloaks with their fingers reaching into people's heads and I mostly didn't want to look at the specifics because I was very busy."

Permalink

"...I see. My - brother - can read minds, so he might want to look at what you remember about those pictures, okay? To find out what we need to do to keep you safe."

Permalink

"Mhmm. I don't see them anymore, though, they're gone. I remember them, but that's it, I can't look. Also can I please stay near you while he's here? That way he won't ask me to think about them until I'm ready, he's scared of you. ... And also really grumpy."

Permalink

"Yes he is. I'll stay with you, sweetheart, don't worry."

Permalink

"Okay, good. Thank you. His face is always scrunched up, no matter where I look. I like you and the other ones better."

Permalink

"The other ones are very sweet. Their names are Carlisle and Esme Cullen, and the grumpy one is Edward."

Permalink

"Okay! I'll remember. And what do I call you besides the pretty rose wrench lady, because that seems kind of a rude thing to call you by, but I'm sorry the pictures didn't tell anything better."

Permalink

"I'm Rosalie." She is finally satisfied with this really rather overcomplicated braid and beribbons it. Finds a mirror to display Aurene to herself in.

Permalink

"Oh! Maybe that's where the roses came from! I was wondering, they didn't make sense." She looks at herself in the mirror and tilts her head. "I like having it out of my way and the braid is pretty but I miss having little curls, next time can you do one that leaves little..." She twirls her finger around in a little circle. "Oh, I see one, like this!"

She reaches over and gently touches Rosalie's hand and a gorgeous painting blooms in her mind. It is of an artfully painted Rosalie, braiding the hair of a similarly painted Aurene, sitting on a bed that fades out into nothingness, like the paintbrush ran out of paint mid-canvas. There are, indeed, little curls, prettily left out of the braid. Interestingly, the painting is... not entirely accurate to something that would actually happen in the future. Rosalie is in a certain white dress she might recognize, but with gold eyes instead of newborn red, and is accessorized with gorgeous roses that are the same bright, brilliant red as blood.

"I can do it like that next time, yes - I don't have that dress any more -"

Permalink

"Oh. The pictures like dramatics, is how Uncle Blair described it. It liked to dust him with ashes and make his fingers bloody. They like putting you in that dress, I don't know why. It's pretty, though."

Permalink

"It's certainly dramatic. So you can show people your foresight paintings, huh?"

Permalink

"Mhm! Only when touching, though. Uncle Blair had me check, and it didn't work."

Permalink

"Well, they're very pretty. And not, hm, literal?"

Permalink

"They are! I like them. ... Mmm. Sometimes they are and sometimes they're not? It varies. I don't know why. Sometimes it's really obvious but sometimes it's sneaky and I don't see how until it's not a picture anymore."

Permalink

"Huh. I've never heard of a power like yours before.

Aurene, what do you eat? And how much of it?"

Permalink

"Birds are my favorite, they're fun to catch! But I can eat other things, too. Not people, people are not for eating, but lots of animals. Even fish, but I don't want to eat any of them for a while. And human food, I can also eat human food, but that's usually even more gross."

Permalink

"Okay, are you hungry now?"

Permalink

"Mmm-mmm. I ate before I found you because if I didn't we'd have to unsnuggle and I didn't wanna."

Permalink

"Well, I could probably figure out how to buy some chicken without unsnuggling you but it would make it hard to hunt, yes."

Permalink

"Mhm! This is better."
