The beginning of the End
I sat motionless in my empty meadow; it had changed from the last time I had been here with him. The flowers were all open and beautiful showing off our love. But now the meadow was mocking me only dirt and weeds appeared it was as though all the beauty had left this world, when he left me. The grass surrounded my face, silent tears trickled down my cheeks and my eyes began to blur. The 4 words repeating over and over on my lips, "He didn't want me, he didn't want me"
I stayed there lying in amongst the dirt, the leaves and the silence just waiting for nothing, waiting for what end was now coming my way.
As my eyes drew weary I drifted in and out of consciences...
"Bella?!" a grounded voice echoed all around me. Opening my eyes slowly I noticed that there was a single light in the distance, no not a light it was a shimmer of glitter.
"Edward!" I shouted jumped up... And then stood frozen staring at someone who was not my Edward, not the man that my own soul hoped to see. He looked at me with the dark olive skin with smirk on his beautiful face.
"Laurent" I said taking a step backwards
"Don't be afraid young Bella" I blinked and suddenly he was 3 feet in front of me. My heart started to race rapidly, wishing that I could slow it down.
"What are you doing here?" my voice croaked out on the last word. I gulped.
"I saw you here all alone, defenceless... And well I've been watching, waiting for a chance to get you alone" I stood there motionless, thinking only of Edward. Laurent snapped his head behind him and then I saw her. The first thing that I noticed coming out from the forest border the fiery red hair, then the wicked grin and her menacing teeth was all I could focus on.
"Vic..victoria" I stumble back, but before I could turn and run Laurent was behind me blocking every possible exit.
"Well looky what we have here" she looked at me then back at Laurent. "Seems like we're going to be having a bit of fun here today, don't you think Bella" she smiled back at me. Laurent's iron shackles quickly restrained me, holding me down for Victoria to finish me off.
"...please don't hurt me." I pleaded as Laurent leaned forward and sniffed my hair. I stiffened.
"Oh lovely Bella, please don't take this personally, we aren't killing you out of fun, well we are but..." I heard the smile in his voice
"This is revenge for my James, your Edward killed my mate, so it's only fair that I return the favour!" She yelled straight at me, eyes locked on, like she was trying to read my soul
"He's not my mate anymore" I whispered so low, though I knew they could hear.
"WHAT!" Victoria took one step closer
"Edwards gone" traitor tears started to roll down my cheeks. "He doesn't want me anymore". I hung my head feeling weak at the knees. It was only Laurent holding me where I stood. The pain in my chest where my heart used to be ached, it ached hard. Death started to appear more appealing that living with heart less feeling.
"Well this changes things" Victoria started to pace in front of me. Waiting for something, and then she stopped, took one big stride and lifted my chin. She looked straight at me again, looking deep within my soul.
"I can see that you still love him" I tried to look away. "Maybe killing you is not the perfect revenge. Maybe your punishment should be to live as I do, To Live everyday knowing that he is gone, that he does not want you!" Her tone got more excited and her plans grew more evolved.
"You shall feel as I do Immortal and Alone!" I stared at her, taking in what she was really saying. She was going to change me. To make me live forever! With this pain! A painful stab in my heart reminding me of the pain I was to endure for the rest of eternity. I started thrashing around in Laurent's grip.
"No no no please don't, just kill me, please just kill me." They both laughed to each other. The tears started pouring down my face as Victoria took her hand to the side of my face and tilted my neck. I closed my eyes waiting, tensed and frozen in place. I felt the cool of her breathe approaching my neck, and then came the piercing teeth ripping through my flesh.
I screamed out all of the air that remained in my lungs, the pain was indescribable. The fire that burned through my entire body over and over again, hours' minute's or second's had passed. I had no idea how long this pain had gone on for or how much longer I would have to be tortured. I felt the ground appear close to my face. Laurent had thrown me aside like a piece of trash. I could hear their menacing laughs coming closer.
"Well Bella I hope we'll see each other soon" she bent down and bit me once more on my wrist. Another scream bellowed from my chest. And they were gone.
Back to black
I finally came to; my eyes still closed not wanting to open them. The pain was gone but I felt weird, so different I didn't feel like me anymore. That's when I noticed that I wasn't alone. There was another presence around me. I was scared. I shot open my eyes and sat up quickly.
"Hey hey hey it's ok" in front of me stood a young man, dark olive skin and muscles galore. This familiar face was so foreign to me. I held his hands up in front of his body, like he was a showing me that he wasn't going to hurt me.
"Where am I?" I looked around; I was in a small room with wooden planked walls. I was sitting on a huge queen size bed. That is when I noticed the blood, dried blood covered the sheets. He noticed my assessment and took a step forward.
"No please don't hurt me" I shuffled backwards on the bed until I hit the wall.
"Shh shh shh its ok Bella, it's me Jake, don't you recognise me?" I looked at him again more thoroughly this time. Searching around in my mind Jake, Jake, Jake that's when the memories flooded back.
"JACOB!" his eyes lit up, and smiled at me in the kindest way. He came and sat next to me on the bed.
"How are you feeling?"
"um I don't know, I feel strange, different. What happened? Where are we? Why are you here?" I flooded out questions I wasn't sure that I wanted to hear the response to.
"I found you in the woods, you were covered in blood and you were in pain...no not pain it was like you were dying but it never ended. I carried you here, this is my place. Don't worry no one knows your here, your safe." He reassured me
"I've been waiting here with you, just waiting to see if you would ever stop hurting"
"How long was I ... um out for"
"It's been almost 3 weeks now" I was shocked. Stunned I didn't know how to react.
"3 weeks! But how it's only meant to be 3 days at the most, what, how, I ..." Jake moved closed and put his arms around me. "It's ok Bells it's over now. I promise you're safe". He stroked the side of my face with his huge hands. His hands were hot, burning. That's when I felt the burn in my throat. The ache of the fire it hadn't gone not all of it anyway.
"Jake no stay away from me I'm dangerous now" Jake released me and shifted to the end of the bed. I could see he was getting angry his whole body started shacking in front of me.
"BELLA WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD YOU BECOME THIS?!?" He stood up and started pacing around the room
"HOW DARE THAT FIFTHLY BLOOD SUCKER LEAVE YOU THERE TO DIE...IF I EVER SEE THAT STUPID CULLEN AGAIN ILL RIP OUT HIS THROAT!" I shuddered, winced; this pain was not caused by the fire in my throat or by Jacob but from the whole that has been left in me from him. I clutched to my stomach!
"STOP IT ... Please. Jake. Don't. I can't. Take it." I collapsed onto my side, bringing my knees to my stomach. Trying to catch my breath. He stopped his tantrum and sat on the ground beside the bed placed his hands near me.
"Bella what's wrong, what happened to you. Charlie told me that they left, and you had disappeared. For weeks we were searching for you. And I wonder into the clearing and there you were dying right in front of me." He's hands clenched into fists and started to shake.
"Please Jake, it wasn't *wince* Edward *wince wince* that changed me. He was gone. He left me." The silence in the room nerve-racking I couldn't take it anymore.
"It was Victoria she changed me against my will, I WANTED TO DIE! That's all I wanted! And she punished me by making me live eternity without him!" I broke out into tearless sobs.
"THEY TURNED YOU AGAINST YOUR WILL!" I rolled over looking away from Jacob clutching to my chest. I heard the door slam, I heard the sound of a wolf howling in pain, then Jake was gone.
I rolled onto my back, just staring up at the roof.
What am I going to do? I can't stay here. But I don't want to leave either. I don't want to do anything.
I sat up and walked to the front door, I stopped and looked up and saw a reflection of a beautiful young girl. Pale white skin, long brown hair with loose curls, a perfect picture all but one thing her eyes. Black as death this vampire was thirsty.
I walked outside to the twilight night. The safest time for a vampire. I lifted my head high and took in a deep breath. The sudden wave of scent hit me with more force than ever, the burn in my throat fired up. Before I knew what was happening I was racing through the forest, tracking down this smell. It didn't take long for me to hit the wall of smell and that is when I spotted my prey. Walking on 2 legs, rifle in hands and a big brown leather jacket. I stalked quietly behind, not stepping on any twigs, no sound.
The prey turned around and looked me dead in the face, his face turned pale. Shocked.
"Bella!" the man said. I looked at him, how did he know me? My throat burned as I took in the air around me. I looked at the jacket and saw a name printed just above the right pocket.
"Bella is that really you!" he took a step closer. I panicked. Charlie. All my senses told me to pounce, but my heart told me to run. I held my breath and I ran for it. Not looking back.
