12. Run Away

Rating 3.3/5   Word Count 940   Review this Chapter

The next three words that came out of our mouths were at the same time…

“I have leukemia.”

“I’m a vampire.”

Jane’s POV:

I ran. I ran away from Daniel. I shot up from my spot of sitting next to him, and ran out of the backyard using the creaking wooden gate. Why? Why would I lay my heart out on the line and tell him the truth? Just to have him…make fun of me. I can’t believe he would make up a lie of something so ridiculous--did he think I was that stupid?

He didn’t follow me, but I felt as if something were chasing me silently. I couldn’t see where I was going… the tears were blinding me. Sobs raked my body as my feet hit the floor painfully. I wasn’t wearing shoes. The tree branches smacked me in the face, tangled in my hair, and snatched at my clothes. Huh, I guess I was in the forest?

I kept running, and I didn’t look back. Why would I? To see him laughing at me and thinking of how much of a freak I was? Honestly Jane, what did you think was going to happen? That he would embrace you and tell you that he was still your hero?

No, I thought he would understand. I thought that maybe since he was so perfect about everything else, he was maybe falling in love with me. Maybe, but no. He makes up some stupid crap about being a vampire. What the heck was that all about, anyway? He might as well told me that he was a freaking unicorn.

With that thought, I slammed into a tree, falling back on my ass. Or, I think it was a tree…yes, it was. I looked up into the sky, seeing that it was about to rain. Looking around, I tried to see where I was, if I had any inclination as to where I came from.

Nothing. It was all trees and leaves surrounding me. I tried to get up, but I felt so…dizzy. Oh my God. Oh Lord, oh Jesus…please, not this again. Not now. Please, I can’t take anymore. The edges of my vision started to darken and I sat back down feeling a numbing sensation take over my legs.

Logan’s words were ringing in my ears…Who really gives a shit, Jane? Yeah, that’s what you’re afraid of. You hide behind your meetings and your church and your stupid paintings.

I laid down, my head starting to pound as if I were at a heavy metal concert. My thoughts drifted…I sank into the soil underneath me. As the last of my vision blacked out, I saw an unfamiliar pair of golden eyes…

Daniel’s POV:

I ran. The second she left, I was gone. I ran as fast as I could---as hard as I could. I didn’t have a sense of direction, nor a slight of hope--just legs that could carry me as far away from where I just endured a lifetime’s amount of pain.

Leukemia? How could I…but she…I couldn’t form a coherent thought. She had leukemia and I told her flat out that I was a vampire.

Leukemia was a blood cancer…and I’m a vampire? What the heck?! Is this what fate has in store for me? This ironic, flat-out-crazy, fall on my butt type of cruel, sick, joke? Was this the destiny of love that I had been waiting for? I finally found the girl for me, and she is on the very brink of death?

That thought stopped me; it was as if I ran into a steel wall. I fell then--the agony had thrown my balance off, and my breath was becoming harsh…Death? She’s…dying? No, but she seems so fine, so perfect. She was only 17, she had her whole perfect life to live out. She wanted to be a teacher…she talked to her plants. How could God do this to her? I had always knew about the occurrences of cancer taking away loved ones, but this…this was indescribable pain.

I looked around, seeing that I was at the edge of a cliff. Where…was…I? I could smell the sea salt and the birds that flew around me, but I could smell no human interaction here…

So I just laid there. I laid down on my stomach, looking out into the ocean and sobbing with dry tears. No tears…no real soul. I was just a monstrous vampire who broke a girl’s heart.

So is this why her blood smelled so different? Because…Leukemia was the condition of too many white blood cells, right? Oh…God.

What amazed me most was that…I think I fell even more in love with her. Before, it was like Jasper said, a strange desire to figure her out….now it was as if she were holding my heart to wherever she ran off to. My heart…it was definitely gone. Should I have ran after her? She probably thinks I’m mentally insane for blurting out that I’m a vampire.

Why did I do that, anyway? It was dangerous for her to know…not as if the Volturi would find out from all the way in Italy, but still…I had just put her and my family in horrible grave danger. They were going to be so hurt, just because I was being an idiot---deciding to be a waterfall and pour out the truth.

Suddenly, Edward’s words came ringing back to me: Do whatever you think is right. Don’t worry about what others will think or say. Whatever makes you happy will make the rest of us happy. And remember that sometimes complicating a life isn’t always a bad thing.

What would he say now?
