Edwards grip around her neck loosened a bit as she called out for someone. Both our heads turned to look behind her. Out of no where stood another vampire. He was much bigger than Edward, maybe as big as Emmett. His arms were huge, the cold blue veins in his arms and neck bulged with every movement he made. His jet black hair fell around his face. His eyes were black with a hint of red. My mouth fell, and my eyes widened as I saw what he held in his arms. My eyes burned, and the tears that had been threatening to surface for so long, finally spilled over.

“NO!” I screamed, but it was only a whisper. I got up from my chair and launched myself towards the frightening vampire without thinking. Even in Edwards hold, Victoria’s foot flew into the air, striking me in my chest. I went flying onto the wet grass. I laid there holding my chest, I couldn‘t breathe. The wind had been knocked out of me and my chest seared with pain. Edward snarled as he looked at me, heaving on the ground. With his right hand still around Victoria’s neck, he took his free hand and threw it across her cheek. Her head fell to the side. She let out a low deep snarl, but kept her head bent.

I sat on the ground with my hand over my heart, breathing slowly. I looked back up at Angelo, there in his cold pale arms was Charlie. Charlie’s eyes were closed, his body lay lifelessly cradled in Angelo’s arms like a baby. I shook my head in disbelief. He was suppose to be fishing, he wasn’t suppose be here. “NO!” I whispered again, my chest burned. I threw my face in my hands, sobbing, gasping for air, still unable to catch my breathe.

“I told you, you’d be sorry.” she manage to cough out, as she saw the situation turn to her favor. “Don’t worry he’s still alive, just a little unconscious. Now if I were you, I’d put me down, before Angelo over there makes sure he never wakes up again.”

Edward didn’t move. He looked back at Angelo, then at Victoria. His fingers threatened to rip her neck apart in a second. But Angelo watched Edwards every move. He watched as Edwards fingers dug into her throat, unto which he responded by simply grabbing Charlie’s head turning it slightly, threatening to break his neck.

“NO!” I screamed, this time with force. I got to my feet, and stumbled towards Edward. Everything was spinning, and there was a ringing in my ear, getting up that fast wasn’t a very good idea. I grabbed Edwards arm. “Edward let her go.” He didn’t look at me. He stared at Victoria’s face, his eyebrows furrowed, and his eyes were small slits as he glared at her with hate. “Edward, let her go, or else he’ll kill Charlie.”

Edward looked at me, his eyes tortured with confusion. If he let her go, she won and would get me. But if he attempted to kill her, then Charlie would die.

“Please…” I pleaded as the seconds went by. He tightened his grip and growled softly one last time before releasing her, placing her on the cool ground.

She looked at Edward her eyes burning with detest. She threw her hand into the air, striking Edward in the head making him fly to the ground.

I ran to Edwards side. But before I could reach him Victoria grabbed my waist and pushed me to the ground. I tried to get up again, but she pressed her foot down on my knee, threatening to crush it if I moved.

“What’s this?” she said - relieving the pressure on my leg - as she walked towards Edward. Angelo came to stand by me, putting his foot where Victoria’s once was, ensuring I didn’t try to move.

There were no holes in her neck where Edwards fingers had dug into her skin. Nothing. No sign that she had ever been hurt.

Edward was laying face down in the wet grass. Victoria stopped a few inches away from him. She thrust her foot into the air, jabbing it into Edwards side.

“STOP!” I screamed. Her head turned towards me and laughed, as she continued to kick him three more times. I shook my head, as the tears continued to stream down my face. “STOP!…. PLEASE STOP!” I sobbed, my words were incomprehensible. The tears and lack of air made it hard to speak.

Edwards face was still in the damp grass. He never made a sound, he never moved. He just lay there taking whatever she threw at him. She knelt down beside him, twisting her fingers into his hair, forcing his head back.

“I told you, you’d be sorry.” she hissed in his ear. She pronounced each word slowly, her teeth clenched together. She threw his head back into the ground. She turned away from him, picking up something on the ground.

Angelo’s foot still was placed firmly on my leg. He didn’t put as much pressure as Victoria, but it still hurt. I looked up at Victoria as she smiled at me, her teeth gleaming.

“Look what I found.” she said enthusiastically. I looked at her confused, not sure why she was so happy. “Aren’t you curious what your boyfriend had?” She waited for me to answer, but I didn’t want to play her idiotic games anymore. “Fine.” Her hand came towards me, stopping directly in front of my face. There sitting in the palm of her hand was a small red velvet box.
