Broken Souls

Summary:
Chapter 8: "They should make cheese flavored blood,” Emmett commented randomly. This is the sequel to Broken Love!!! There's something stranged happening to Nadalie. It's something both Alice and Emily saw coming but hoped it would never come true. Now everybody's in danger from Nadalie, not just the vampires.


Notes:
So here it is, the sequel! As you all probably know I do not own most of the character, the places, etc.. It all belongs to Stephenie Meyers! I do however own Nadalie, Emily Adeline (soon to be Emily Clearwater), and a few of the werewolf's imprints.

Chapter 6: Only the Beginning

Bella tossed the newspaper onto the table. Hurt filled her big brown eyes and I felt it from where I was baking in the kitchen. Those who were eating breakfast (besides a giggling Noelani) looked up in surprise. That would be Jared, Kim (who only came over for breakfast occasionally), Paul, Jacob, Kara, Quil, and Seth. I came into the dining room from the kitchen to see what was going on.

Edward was standing next to Bella, frowning. He and Bella were the only vampires besides me who wasn’t hunting. All of the other Cullens had left this morning. They weren’t going far, only a few hours run away.

Seth read the newspaper’s headline out loud. “Strange Deaths Occur in Forks, Washington”.

He looked up and our eyes met. Nadalie. It had to be her.

“Read it,” I whispered.

“This morning at exactly 8:47 a.m. Mrs. Weber went to wake her three children, two twin boys and their sister Angela who was visiting while on collage break. She was horrified, distraught, and pained to find them all dead. She immediately called the police.

Authorities are baffled at these mysterious murders. The victims were not poisoned, stabbed, shot, or harmed in any way. They were all in perfect health and nobody can figure out how the died. The only clue was a set of teeth marks on each of their arms. A single bite shouldn’t kill them however seeing as it injected no poison or anything. It seems to be a regular bite mark…” Seth trailed off, not bothering to finish the article.

“Sounds like the work of the soul sucker,” Edward hissed while holding a trembling Bella.

“She needs to be stopped,” I growled, “before she kills too many innocent people. We need to find her before she kills someone she cares about.”

“Our family will be home tomorrow night,” Edward told me. “We can talk to them then. It has to be us vampires who make the final move and suck out her blood but we’ll need the werewolves to help distract and fight her.”

Edward looked toward Jacob. Jake nodded, unable to speak around his mouthful of food. The werewolves who were usually excited for a fight looked slightly depressed instead. I knew exactly how they felt. We were going to be fighting the girl who was like a sister to us. It was going to be hard.

I was jolted out of my thoughts by the beeping of my waffle ovens. I hurried into the kitchen to take out the waffles and put in more batter to cook. Nobody was talking as I sat the plate of waffles onto the table.

“Cheer up a bit,” I said as I patted Quil’s shoulder, “Soon we’ll have our Nadalie back to normal.”

“I hope so,” he mumbled.

I watched him drown his mountain of waffles with syrup and sighed sadly. Then it happened again. Everything began to whirl and blur. My head felt like it was being hammered over and over. I gasped back a scream as my legs grew too feeble to hold my weight.

“Emily!”

Quite suddenly Seth was helping me to my feet. I moaned. My head still hurt. Why did this keep happening? I hated it. I t made me feel weak, susceptible, and human. Something I loathed with a passion.

“I’m fine,” I muttered.

“No you aren’t,” Seth growled.

“I’ll be alright ok!” I snapped as I turned to head back toward the kitchen and stumbled.

Seth caught me. He gripped my hands tightly. They seemed so minuscule when caught by his large fingers.

“Get some rest,” he ordered.

“Seth, what about breakfast…” I began to say.

“No,” he interrupted, “go rest right now! I’ll take care of breakfast.”

His grasp on my hands was so tight that it would have crushed all my finger bones were I not a vampire. I looked down and nodded in defeat. He relaxed his hold with relief. I jumped up to kiss him before heading toward our bedroom.

I quickly found that lying down didn’t help much but I did it anyways. I thought about Nadalie. I felt terrible for her and Embry. I felt bad for the Webers too. Not knowing how or why their children simply didn’t wake up one morning.

About half an hour later the bedroom door opened and interrupted my thoughts. Seth slipped in and shut the door behind him. He looked at me with concern as he sat on the bed.

“Noelani’s being watched I assume?” I said.

“Yes,” he replied, “Are you feeling better?”

“A bit,” I assured him.

“Good,” he whispered.

We were silent for a while. Both of us were lost in each others eyes. Seth finally spoke.

“I believe what you said,” he commented.

“Huh?” I blinked feeling dazed.

“You said we’d get our Nadalie back and I believe you,” he replied.

“Oh, I’m glad,” I murmured dreamily.

He laughed at my distant expression and leaned down to push his mouth against my lips. For the few minutes he kissed me everything felt just right. I forgot all of my troubled and worries. All that existed was Seth and I. All that mattered was our love. Then all too soon it ended.

Seth was the one to pull back with a smile. I pouted and he laughed. I love him. I love him more then anybody could ever comprehend. I knew right then as I looked up at him that we were going to figure everything out. We had to.
