"Wake up, dear." The voice sweetly called to her. After days of agonizing pain she was afraid to open her eyes, but in fear that there would be more to come she opened them blinking at the harsh light flooding the room. "Come on sweetheart I promise it's all over."
"Where am I?" Her surroundings began to come into focus and she was in a pastel colored room lying on a double bed. The woman in front of her was beautiful and only looked to be in her late twenties. She had dirty blonde hair, fair skin, and the most beautiful golden eyes. "Who are you?" panic began to take control as she surveyed the situation.
"Relax dear I am Leann Porter and you are at my house. You may not remember this, but I was your doctor." The girl sat up more confused then ever.
"Yes, I will explain in a minute first can you tell me your name?" Leann sat on the opposite end of the bed and patiently waited for the girl to answer.
"Audra Sanders. Now what do you mean by you were my doctor?" Leann stood up and held out her hand. Audra eyed it suspiciously this didn't answer her question, but she took it any way. Leann pulled her to her feet and led her to a full length mirror. Eyes as big as saucers she stared at her reflection not sure of what she was seeing.
"What the hell happened to me?" Her long brown hair fell perfectly over her shoulder, the blemishes on her face gone. The tan skin she had become so accustomed to was now beautifully pale and her brown eyes were replaced with a gold over taken by red flecks.
"You're a vampire." She spun around and looked at Leann like she had three heads.
"Vampire?" Leann nodded actual that was the first thing she thought of when she saw her self, but vampires didn't exist they were only made up creatures in the novels she spend endless nights reading.
"How come I'm not dust? The sun is blinding me." Leann laughed and walked over to the shades throwing them open. Light danced off her skin throwing sparkles on the wall and Audra looked down to notice hers doing the same.
"Frying in the sun is a little tall tale the Volturi decided to throw out there for further camouflage. Stakes through threw the heart are false also if you put your hand to your heart you'll notice it is no longer beating so even if a stake could pierce your skin it would do nothing." Audra searched for her pulse, but it was hopeless Leann was right she was dead.
"So do I get a nifty coffin to sleep in?" Leann let out another musical laugh.
"No sadly you don't get a coffin because you don't have to sleep." Audra nodded in understanding. With the chatter dying down Audra's hand wandered to her throat were a dull sense of dryness was growing.
"You thirsty, dear?" Audra quickly moved her hands to her side. She did want to drink, but she didn't want to take someone's life in order to do so. Leann seemed to sense her distress and quickly explained things to her.
"Don't worry were not going after human blood. I am I guess what you would called a vegetarian which means I drink animal blood instead." Still uncomfortable Audra agreed to go hunting with her.
"This is wonderful and when we get back I will introduce you to my husband." Leann was out of the room in a flash and Audra just stared at the place she just occupied stunned. A second past and Leann was back.
"Sorry dear I forgot that you don't know your own power yet. We have super speed and since you're a new born your probably faster then I am so what do you say we try it out." This time when Leann left Audra was right on her heels speeding past cars and houses waiting for the faint sound of an alarm clock to break her from this compelling dream.
When he woke he was met with the sounds and smells of the hospital. An IV ran out of his right arm and his head was pounding. He blinked a few times to knock the fog from his head. A few moments later his doctor arrived.
"Hello there. I am Dr. Cullen and you must be Aden Riley" Aden nodded, groaned and rose to a sitting position. "You gave us quite a scare not many people inhale that much carbon dioxide and live."
"How long have I been out?" His voice was hoarse from not being used.
"Two days." Aden ran his hand through his messy brown hair recalling the event that put him here.
It was Monday afternoon when the call came in, Aden was a firefighter in Seattle and a building had caught fire. By the time they got there the building was completely engulfed in flames, and as far as the station knew no one resided there, but for safety measures they sent Aden in. It was a hazard with out the flames with them it was a flaming death trap. Flames spilled out of the doors and walls as he made his way up the creaking, broken stairs. Pillars began to crack and fall as he inspected each room. All vacant and with his air supply running low he decided he should get out. As he made his way down the hall he heard the sound of glass breaking in the opposite direction in which he was headed. He halted before turning around and running down the hall to a closed door. It was locked and bolted. Now with no doubt in his mind he knew there was something behind here, and whatever it was the people who started the fire wanted it to burn with the house.
Quickly pulling his axe from his back he chopped at the door until it was weak enough that he could kick it threw. A sickening crash sounded as pieces of the door flew across the room, and thick, black smoke began pouring out. The place stunk of gasoline causing Aden to choke. He got out a flash light to try to see through the cloud of smoke, but it was no use. He started to think that his assumption was wrong when heard a faint movement over the crackling of the wood. Pushing his way to the other side of the room he saw her. A girl who couldn't have been older then sixteen tied with her hands behind her back to a support beam, the broken glass surrounding her reflected the red of the flames. A gag was placed over her mouth and her head fell to the side in an unconscious state. Her jeans were cut and torn; her legs bleeding. In attempt to get help she kicked over a table with a vase which crashed on her legs. Working fast he sliced threw the ropes on her wrists and the gag. She lifted her head slightly struggling to stay awake.
"I am Aden and I am here to help you so try to stay with me, ok?" He brushed her hair from her face trying to keep her from falling into an intoxicated sleep. She turned her head to the side, her pitiful stare piercing his soul.
"Please don't leave me." Her voice so soft that if he hadn't have seen her lips move he would have never believe she had spoken. As he scooped her up in his arms he whispered to her.
"I promise you I'm not going any where." With one last stare her eyes fluttered shut, and with his air now completely empty he knew he had only enough time before they both would died. The last thing he remembered was rushing out of the house and handing her to another fire fighter before collapsing.
"How is she?" He asked the doctor who was now adjusting knobs on different machines.
"How is who?"
"The girl, the one that was in the building." Dr. Cullen set his clipboard down and turned to look the man in the eyes.
"I'm sorry, but she didn't make it." Aden's stare darted on the other side of the room as tears brewed in his eyes. He hadn't known the girl or even knew her name for that matter, but a strong feeling of guilt surrounded her death. "There was nothing you could have done." Dr. Cullen told him trying to comfort him, but it was a failed attempt.
"Do you at least know her name?" That's all he wanted to right now was to know the name of the girl he let down. The one he promised to be there for and wasn't.
"I believe it was Audra Sanders." That's all he said before leaving the room, leaving Aden alone to mourn for the girl who with four little words etched her self permanently into his soul.
"Leann please let me go out I promise I will be in complete control." Only a week since her transformation and already she was going insane. Audra need to go out the house had become claustrophobic.
"Audra I know you seem in control now, but with blood lust becoming a factor you won't be. How about bringing in a nice thunderstorm? The grass could use a good watering." Audra rolled her eyes. For some reason she got the power to control lightning storms, and all week she had been practicing sitting next to her bed room window.
"Audra do you need to go hunting again?" Vic asked. Vic Porter was Leann's husband and ever since Audra's invasion on their family a week ago they treated her like a daughter.
"No I just need to go for a walk or a run or whatever it is that we do. Please! Let me go in the woods were there is no people." She pleaded and the Porter's exchanged a look before Leann sighed.
"Fine, Vic will drop you off in the deep center of the woods. It is four am now I will give you until six pm. That gives you twelve hours to run out this energy and then it's back in the house no arguments, ok?" Audra squealed with excitement at being allowed on her own, and pulled the Porters into a hug.
"I promise you won't regret it." At four thirty Vic and Audra stopped in the center of the woods.
"Now be back by six o' clock sharp and not a second later or we will send a search party." He smiled at her as she jumped up and down in anticipation. "Behave kid."
"Ok will do! Have fun at work." She called behind her as she raced through the trees. For two hours she frolicked through the brush doing random activities. She passed a herd of deer and the blood lust became so strong that she took one down. She drank until she was full and her eyes were sparkling a golden yellow. A horrendous thunderstorm was beginning to brew over her head and it lifted her spirits farther. At six thirty a strong smell of blood pierced the air taking control of Audra's senses. It was so sweet and delicious. To Audra it was like wanting to stuff your mouth with dessert on Thanksgiving Day even though your pants were about to burst. The smell began to become more powerful and she found her self following it to a meadow. She went to the edge of the trees to gaze at the source of the smell. In the middle of the clearing was a girl with brown hair on her knees weeping.
"Of course he doesn't love me! How could he?" She cried and instead of wanting to tear the girl apart Audra felt a deep sense of pity for her. "Well if he left because my blood was too tempting to him, then maybe I should get rid of it all! Then he'll come back!"
Out of the sweat shirt she was wearing she pulled a pistol and stood. Audra stood stunned not sure of the action she should take.
"Until death shall we part my dear Edward." With shaky hands she put the pistol to her temple, and right as she was about to pull the trigger lightning struck right in front of her. The girl stumbled backwards out of fright and tripped. Instead of stopping her from shooting her self when the girl tripped back she pulled the trigger when trying to catch her self. A deep crimson badge appeared on her stomach as she screamed in pain dropping the gun. Audra's mind began to battle with itself on what to do. Her vampire mind wanted to kill the girl where her human mind wanted to help her. Rushing forward she cradled the girl in her arms. It was obvious she was older then Audra, but it looked like they could have been twins. Applying pressure to the wound Audra tried to comfort the girl.
"You're a vampire." The girl squeaked a light trickle of blood dripped down her mouth.
"Yes, but I'm not here to hurt you." The girl stared at her and produced a weak smile.
"If you ever meet a coven of vampires with the name Cullen. Tell Edward that Bella will always love him." The light began to leave her eyes and Audra did the only thing she could think of. Pushing the girl's hair to the side, to reveal the soft tender area of her neck Audra lowered her teeth and pushed gently against the skin. She had no idea what she was doing or how it was suppose to be done, and when the sweet blood dripped down her throat she almost couldn't stopped. Then the image of the heartbroken girl pleading with her to send her love her last wish made her pull off.
"Tell him yourself." She told her and Bella began to fade off as Audra picked her up and began the journey home.
