"Wait, Edward. It's my sister." I said, pulling him back.
We situated ourselves beside the trees, as we waited for her arrival.
She arrived a couple of minutes later. She was barefooted and was in a black tank top and black jeans. She was glowing under the sunlight and her eyes were pitch black and her wings outstretched. Her brown hair was swaying with the wind and spikes were sticking out from her shoulders and arms.
She looked lethal.
"Lizzie!" I exclaimed running to her. Her once deadly look was immediately gone. She was like a normal vampire, only with wings.
"I missed you." She said, as she hugged me.
"I missed you too." I said.
I pulled back to study her features. She looked sick compared to how she was the last time I saw her. Her once twinkly brown eyes had lost their sparkle. Her smile, was not as bright as before. She looked like life was draining out of her.
"Lizzie, this is Edward." I said, feeling Edward's presence.
"He's a vampire." She sneered, pulling me behind her, her fangs exposed. Edward was taken a back but didn't move.
"He's a friend." I said, putting a hand on her shoulder.
She examined Edward for a few seconds then relaxed her stance.
"I'm sorry. It's just reflex."
"Don't mind me." He said, smiling a bit.
"How did you get here?" I asked my sister.
"I escaped." She said, casually.
"Did they harm you?"
"No, not really. They just asked questions, that's all."
"Did you see Dex?"
"Yes." Her voice was full of remorse.
"Did you talk?"
"No. I escaped, instead."
"You fought him?" I asked, astounded.
"Not exactly. Just put him to sleep."
"Electricity." She held out a hand and blue lightning were surrounding it. She was proud to show-off her ability but then she turned serious.
"I'm really happy to see you, Bells." She said smiling her bright smile, but it didn't reach her eyes. "Unfortunately, I have an unfinished business to attend to and I'm supposed to be leaving right now."
"Why? Can't you stay?" I asked, dismayed.
"I'm sorry. But I have to get back to my group. They're in trouble and in need of help. The Guardians are killing all of us." She said panicked.
"What do you mean by us?"
"It's a long story, and I can't tell you where anyone can overhear."
"Come with us. Back to our house." Edward offered. Lizzie looked at me and I nodded, telling her that it's safe and they're trustworthy.
None of us said anything when we were running back. The Cullens were all in the living room when we reached the house. I introduced everyone then sat on a couch beside my sister. Edward sat on the stairs with Japser.
"Tell us about your journey." Esme said, gently.
Lizzie nodded and took a deep breath before speaking.
"The time I left, I couldn't go back to the Ensemble so I wandered. And eventually, I found 5 angels that were like me, part vampire. We found shelter with a group of angels permanently situated somewhere in Alaska, they're very hospitable but really deceitful. They killed a number of citizens in that remote area and told the Ensemble that it was our doing. We escaped but encountered a coven of vampires some miles away. That's when I got captured."
"What did the angels do to you?"
"For all I know, they tried killing my group but did not avail. But why they kept me alive, I don't know."
"Why were they trying to kill you?" I asked.
"We're proof that vampires broke the treaty, and the angels can't afford to wage war with the vampires. We're outnumbered, and we will sink into extinction." She spat, glaring at the ground.
"So they sacrifice some of their own rather than to fight for everyone." Concluded Carlisle.
"I'm sorry for being so agitated, but I really have to go. If I don't they will track me down here and that would be worse." Said Lizzie, standing up and walking to the front door.
"Lizzie." Called Carlisle.
"Yes?" She said, turning around.
"Don't be afraid to ask for our assistance." He said, giving her a reassuring smile.
"Thank you." She said.
"I came for you. But since I can see that you're well protected here, I'll leave you." She said as she hugged me for the last time.
"No. I'll come with you." I can the tears building up in my eyes.
"Stay here. You're safer here than with me, Bella. I can't afford to lose you. Tell mom I love her. Okay? I love you, Bells." She then pulled away.
"Don't worry, we'll protect her." Said Edward from behind me.
"I know." She said smiling, then flew away.
All I can do was stare after her. She was gone once again. She was going into battle, and all I can do was stand there and do nothing.
I really wish I was older.
R&R please :)
