Author's Note: There's really no excuse for not updating. But a few things before this chapter starts, what Edward said in the first chapter is actually a lie. He had to cover something up so he made up that story. Also, this story takes place between New Moon and Eclipse, Breaking Dawn never happened. And Eclipse hasn't either, yet. Here's the new chapter!
"Well, that worked wonderfully," Alice countered, ringing her hair out and then shaking her head.
"It did?" Emmett asked, surprise in his voice.
"Sarcasm is a foreign language to you," Alice smirked back.
"Well…you should be getting home and dry," Cassidy smiled slyly. Edward shot her two daggers as he tried to warm Bella. Cassidy scoffed and flipped her stunning blond hair.
"Well, well, well….look who's here," A deep voice traveled out of the forest. Then appeared, who else but, the pack.
"Who let the dogs out?" Rose sneered.
"We don't want any trouble," Edward said more to Rose then the others. He took a step forward and turned to Jasper. He mouthed to him "take Bella to the car".
"Edward..," Bella started looking up at him. Jasper quickly grabbed Bella's arm and started pulling her to the car. Edward shook his head and looked back at the pack.
"Well…it looks like you've got a new member," Sam said stepping forward and focusing right on Cassidy. She pursed her lips, not in fear, but in anger.
"I would not be disgraced to be a member of them..," Cassidy smirked inspecting the others carefully.
"Is she…does she have to same…you know…eating habits as you?" Jacob asked curiously. Cassidy laughed, which sounded more like a cackle.
"No…," Edward answered quietly. Cassidy stared into Jacob's eyes, but he didn't back down.
"So, you are with a human blood sucker?" Jacob asked stepping closer to Cassidy.
"I'd rather be a leech than a flea ridden mutt," Cassidy countered sternly.
"That's it," he said, leaping towards her. But he was quickly restrained by Quil and Seth.
"You'll get your chance, Jacob," Sam said softly.
"We'll just get off your land okay?" Alice tried to reason. Sam stood and thought for a second.
"No…we want an offering," he examined them all. "Her," he pointed to Cassidy. She smirked and stepped back.
"No," Edward said looking at Cassidy. She stared at him knowingly. "You can't take Cassidy."
"Fine…then give us Bella," Jacob said firmly. Edward glared at him, his eyes ready to kill.
"Cassidy…," Sam started, "…or Bella. Pick one."
Edward looked painfully at Cassidy. She stared at him with pleading eyes. His eyes flickered over to Bella, who being stubborn, made Jasper let her see everything.
"Edward…" Bella said softly.
"Edward…" Cassidy pleaded. "You promised…you would keep me safe….you promised," she said.
