Wee! Update! lmao
I saw Twilight on opening night last week and it took me awhile to process it all but I really liked it. Not as good as the book but it was awesome in it's own right.
I woke up in relief.
The pain was gone.
Did I dream it all?
Yet when I opened my eyes fully, I discovered the familiar beach I was deserted on looking back at me. Same old, same old though everything was much sharper. I could see across the water but no land was in sight still. The salty smell of the ocean was more potent in my nostrils now. I was a vampire now, I guess. I sat up with more speed than I was used to leaving me lightheaded. My head spun as my eyes met the same driftwood and sand that I'd been on for what seemed to be forever. Wait! Do vampires get lightheaded?
My hand went to where my heart should have been beating but I felt nothing. I gasped and heard footsteps coming towards me but I saw no one. Probably the super hearing, looking around, Victoria finally emerged from the wooded part of the island. "I thought that would never end." She grinned and offered me her hand almost like a friendly gesture. I didn't trust it. I hit her hand away in disgust. Who did she think she was?
"Get away from me." I growled.
Wow, I actually growled.
Must be a vampire thing. She laughed amused and pulled me up anyway.
"You remember our deal, right?" She studied me causally as she spoke. I had no idea how I looked probably weird with my new red eyes.
I snarled, "I'm stronger than you."
"True, true." She began to circle me in hopes of intimidation and it was working. "But I have skill and you don't. I win." She roughly grabbed my arm and I was surprised when I didn't feel the normal chill. Victoria began pulled me and being Bella, I tripped and met the ground. The earth felt like it moved…I swear. I supposed to be graceful; I had to be the worst vampire ever. Victoria seemed to agree with her groans.
"Are you joking?" I knew that was rhetorical so I didn't dare answer since I didn't want to look stupider than I already looked. She yanked me back up and I miraculously didn't fall again. I just stumbled here and there.
Remembering my strength, I ripped my arm away and glared, "Where are you taking me?" I knew I didn't sound as fierce as I hope I would. This vampire thing isn't working for me.
"We're already here." And that's when the smell hit me. It had to be one of the best smells I've ever smelt. But then that mushroom ravioli I had with Edward that one night. It filled my nostrils and sent fireworks through my brain. The sweetest smell I had ever smelt in my life. A burn formed in the back of my throat and I knew from that instant what it was. A human. I heard a faint heartbeat and looked around until I found a female lying on the beach barely alive.
"I got her for you. Well enjoy." Victoria smirked and waited to see what I would do. I couldn't but I wanted her so bad. I've never felt like this before. There was such a need, a craving. I saw Victoria's red hair zoom past me and now the girl was now directly in front of me on the ground. My fist clenched together, going whiter than they already were. "Take her, Bella. Put an end to her suffering." Victoria yelled loudly at me.
I bent down a bit and looked at the girl at my feet. She couldn't have been much older than me. She had a life, maybe even her own loving boyfriend as I once had.
Perhaps a protective father and a childlike mother.
A best friend who was always there.
People who loved her.
"I can't do it." I sobbed quietly. My conscience overpowered my thirst. As strange as it sounds. I took another look at the girl and I couldn't do it.
"What do you mean you can't do it?" She raged, "You're a newborn. This is all you want. Do it, Bella!" Victoria's voice echoed throughout the island.
But for some reason, I couldn't. I looked upon the poor girl in front of me and I would have cried if I could have. I shook with my sobs. My knees gave way and I collapsed into the sand, burying my face in my hands. I was slightly ashamed that I couldn't kill the girl in front of me. What kind of vampire was I?
"Impossible." I heard my redheaded capturer say quietly. I didn't look up at her only until I heard the girl's heartbeat no more. I whimpered and looked up to see the girl gone and Victoria glaring at me. "You're useless!"
"I'm…sorry." I replied, uncertain. She rolled his eyes.
"I might as well kill you. You're no use to me or anyone else for that matter."
"Don't come near me."
"Or…what?" It was like she was a cat and I was her mouse she was ready to pounce on. Her hair blew like fire in the wind, making her look even fiercer. I gulped, "I'll…umm…I…ll kill you myself."
"I'd like to see you try. It would be entertaining." She laughed.
"Just leave me alone, please." I asked. I didn't want to die. I didn't care that Jacob would hate me now or that Charlie would probably not accept me anymore.
Victoria smirked, "Well since you said it so nicely."
I thought for awhile. Anything I could do to get out of this situation. I was fast now. Really fast. I could swim. I made a run for the water without thinking about anything and just swam. He said nobody would be able to stop me when I was a newborn. Hopefully Victoria fell into the category of nobody.
If the situation had been different, I would have been happy to walk back into our old house in Forks. It still had the welcoming quality to it and everything was the same as we left it. Memories came back fast of Bella and all of us like it had been years since we saw each other though it had only been a few months. I sighed and looked around for Edward. He and his crazy driving brought him here first. Jasper and I pulled in second.
"Edward?" I called out.
Jasper stood at my side and held my hand. He could feel the worry radiating off me. "I'm sorry, Jazz. I'm just really scared for Bella."
He nodded, "I understand. I've seen newborns. We don't know how Bella could be right now."
I gave him a smile and called out for Edward one more time. Where was he?
"I'm sure Bella's alright, Charlie. Sam, me and some of the guys are going out to look for her. She can't be that far." I reassured him for the millionth time but to tell you the truth, I was worried too. It wasn't like Bella to just go off on her own.
"Jacob, come here for a minute." Sam called to me from the kitchen. I walked over to him quickly eager to hear any news. When I was in front of him, he continued, "Paul and some of the guys smelt out of a vampire. The smell is unfamiliar to us. We're going to attack. It might be what got Bella."
I nodded, "I'll got out and help. Where are they?"
"They're near the coast. It just came out of the water."
I was going to get the son of a bitch that got to Bella if it was the last thing I did.
Some questions to think about:
Will Bella see Charlie again?
Who will be the first Cullen to see Bella if she gets found?
