The Twilight 25
Pen name: justaskalice
Instinct made her save him. Although he was a grown man, his pain made him like a child. When she scooped him up and sprinted toward home, he made a strained, keening sound. The gashes in his side wept blood, but for once she was able to completely rise above her cravings.
The very trait Edward so snidely mocked her about would save this man. Single-mindedness.
Now he was burning, venom surging through his veins, sealing them off and healing his wounds. His heart beat strongly, but it was only a matter of time.
She held his hand and waited.
A/N: I've decided to tackle the Twilight 25 as a series of oneshots and drabbles. I won't be venturing into AH with these posts at all, mostly canon with some possible ventures into AU. My responses will center around the original 7 Cullens, which means no Bella. I'm looking forward to it, and it'll be something really different for me. I hope you enjoy!
