Having seen what will happen to the people I love, my family if I don't return to them, the choice I made was obvious. I would go through hell if it meant keeping them safe.
"You knew when you showed me the pictures what my choice would be. So now tell me what the consequence will be."
"Fair enough, it's your choice in the end, I am a part of you so technically you have to come back to life all on your own. I spoke up so you knew of all your choices. The minute I disappear you will have to use all of your remaining power to pull out of this state you are now in."
"But what will happen once I go back?" I asked.
"That's a question I will not be answering. It would be no fun to tell you before it happens. You will find you as soon as you wake up well if you wake up. I will fill in the blanks as to what is happening to you if something remains unclear after and if you make it." My alter ego said.
"You keep saying if I make it, so there is a possibility of this failing spectacularly and my family will be left to suffer."
"Of course there is a chance that you won't make it out alive. This isn't a sure science Rosalie, all will depend on the level of damage you have suffered and the power of the venom being injected to you as we speak."
"So I may not wake up and leave them to the future I have seen either way then." I said defeated.
"Yes death is always a possibility here, but the chances are they have injected enough venom in you to save you." The other me said.
"Okay what should I do?"
"It is very simple really, you need to tap into your power like you usually do and will it to revive you. The problem here is that the idiot who attacked you directly attacked your life force and reduced your gifts power. With all the venom that is being pumped into you it will most probably compensate for that a little bit. Now try it, try to save yourself from this place that you are in. You can do it, I know that you have it in you, because I am you so go on do it, go back to the real world." She said that before fading away.
That's what I did, I concentrated and tried to call to all of the energy left in me. I felt it flowing threw me and called for it. I could feel them pumping venom into me. Stephanie, Tanya, the Amazon's, my mother and father, Caius, Jane, Katia and Irena. I used the power in there venom and joined it to the energy that was still in my core. When I couldn't pull any more power, I started willing it to bring me back to life. I could feel it fading with every passing second, the power being consumed by my order. I didn't know if it was working, but I did know that the energy was being consumed rapidly. It was nearing the end, I was losing the battle.
Then I heard it, the voices of all the people I loved. Stephanie, Tanya, Irena, Katia, Athenodora, Marcus and so many other people. They were calling me, praying, wishing and hoping for me to come back to them. I can't leave them, no I can't not with the knowledge that it would destroy and kill them. I have to wake up, I have to for them.
So I concentrated one last time, calling every fiber of my being. Then I pushed my order, one last time, I willed myself to live, to go back to all the people that I loved. The energy flew out of me and then little by little, I lost the tight hold I had on my power, letting go of everything that I was holding back.
And little by little, I lost the last hold I had on reality and everything faded away.
Everything was falling apart around me, Rosalie wasn't responding to anything. All the venom that we were pumping into her wasn't doing anything. It was like everything was being used to restore her back to life but at the same time it was being sucked out but the enormous gap that was created in her core.
Then suddenly Rosalie Started to convulse, everything around us seems to have stopped. Energy was flying around us, enveloping my mate and swirling around her.
Panic overtook me, I was pretty sure I was going to lose my mind. I tried to hold her but the energy pushed me away as it did to everyone that had been previously holding Rose and giving her venom. I tried again and again to reach her but to no veil.
Suddenly, I felt arms around me, holding me back. I tried to get away so that I could try again to hold my mate, by one hold was impossible to break.
"Calm down child, look closely, Rosalie is trying to fight this, trying to come back to us. The energy won't let you get close, won't let anyone for that matter. She needs to do this alone and you trying to force yourself in, won't be of any help. So now calm down and wait." Came the calm voice of Zafrina.
I relaxed in her arms and sat down on the ground my eyes never leaving Rose. I couldn't do anything but wait, I have never felt this helpless in all of my existence. If Rose didn't make it out alive I would most probably die to. I can not imagine my life without her. She's the light of my life, the one good thing that pulled me out of the dark places I was stuck in all those years ago.
Suddenly everything stopped, the energy vanished as fast as it had appeared. Rosalie hadn't moved, it was like time has stopped, no one moved, everyone was waiting for a sign.
Than it happened, Rosalie opened her eyes.
You know that feeling you get when you wake up after a drunken night out. That is exactly how I felt when I opened my eyes. Everything was too loud, the light was too bright and my head was pounding if that was even possible for a vampire.
I felt a hand on my cheek, recognizing the touch immediately, I leaned into it. Closing my eyes again, I inhaled the unique sent of my mate, my Stephanie. Oh how I had missed that smell. I always calmed me and appeased me.
I opened my eyes in time to see her lean in and kiss me. The kiss was filled with love, so much love and adoration it was incredible.
"I love you, I love you so so much. Please don't do this again, please I can't support this another time." Before letting me even answer, her lips were on mine once again leading me into a passionate kiss.
Our kiss was interrupted by a cough, realizing that we weren't alone, we broke apart but Steph never let go of me, preferring to play with my hair.
I tried to move or get up but I couldn't feel the lower part of my body. I started to panic until I remembered what my alter ego had said. This was the consequence, I couldn't feel my feet anymore.
"I… I can't move my legs." I said just above a whisper. Stephanie looked franticly around trying to make sense of what I had just said. I extend my hand and touch her face trying to calm her down with my touch. It's okay love, I knew something like that could happen. But I had to try, I couldn't leave you on your own here. I'd rather not be able to move than live without you." I said in the most calming voice I could muster.
"I love you so much Rosie, I will never leave your side and will never let anything happen to you ever again. I promise, I'm sorry I let this happen to you in the first place. I'm so sorry." If she could cry, she would have by now. Her body was shaking and her eyes were filled with so much pain and guilt.
"Hey, hey, it's not your fault, non of this is your fault. I knew the consequence of using my gift and I did it anyways. I should be the one asking for forgiveness."
She just kissed me on the forehead and pressed her cheek on my head.
I looked around and realized that we were being watched by a douzen vampires and a human.
"Mom" I just said when I set my eyes on Dora. Without missing a beat she was on my side holding my hand into hers.
"Don't you ever do that to me again young lady, got it. I don't think I would have survived in this world if you weren't by my side." She said kissing my hand.
"I'm sorry, I'll try not to do it again. I really will. Can you help me sit up, I'm too tired to do it at the moment. And I may need some blood, I'm too week at the moment." I said in a little voice.
I felt myself being pulled upward, and Stephanie sitting behind me, letting me use her as a chair. I lean into her and snuggle into her chest. She pulls me close and put her arms around me.
"Kate went to bring you some blood, she won't be gone long." I quite voice announced. I looked up a smile ghosting my lips.
"Come here Tan, I need you close to me not on the other side of the clearing." As soon as the words were out of my mouth, Tanya was kneeling next to me. She leaned in held my face between her hands and kissed my forehead.
"You scared me half to death, I'll kill you myself if you do it again." She let out a little laugh at the end of her statement causing me to smile wide.
"I'll let you do it gladly." I told her smirking.
I looked around again and saw the faces of all the people that I loved. I couldn't be thankful enough that I found my way back to them in the end.
Even if I couldn't walk anymore, I had my mate and my family with me. I knew that without a doubt I would be okay.
