I was abruptly awoken by two cold hands shaking my shoulders. I gasped, and opened my eyes. Becka was hovering next to me, and Aaron and Alex were by the door.
I wish I didn’t let the nurses give me sleeping pills. It made me so disoriented. She laughed at my confused expression. “Ready to make a run for it?” she asked with a knowing expression.
“Hell yeah.” I mumbled weakly. She smiled, and then took on a serious look. Aaron and Alex both stepped into the room to help her get me out.
They lifted me into a wheelchair, careful not to let any of the many wires sticking out of me to come out. Aaron pushed me, while Alex walked slowly behind him with the heart monitor and IV fluids. Becka walked next to me, holding my hand.
I slowly looked around at the empty hallway. I knew that right now was when they switched shifts, but it shouldn’t be this empty!
Aaron seemed to understand my expression. “We made a little… distraction… downstairs.” He said in a low voice. He grinned slightly, and I smiled back. Aaron’s gift was making distractions perfect for whatever area he was in. They changed for each environment.
“Yeah, and Alex made them forget all of their charts, so they’re probably running around looking for them.” Becka whispered. Alex grinned. As a human, he was good at making people forget what they were doing, and now he could expand that. He could make any human or vampire forget something for a small amount of time, up to three hours.
“Too bad you couldn’t make me forget to take my sleeping pills.” I muttered. They all laughed in whispers. None of their powers worked on me; not Aarons distractions, or Alex’s forceful forgetfulness. Becka could teleport, so she didn’t need to intrude into my mind to make me do things.
“I wish I could make you forget things.” Alex said dreamily. I scowled at him, but the mood was ruined by my coughing.
“Come one guys, we need to hurry up.” Becka said in a low voice. The two boys nodded, and hurried. The three of them got me out quicker than I thought they could.
I took a deep breath of cool, fresh air. It felt good to my tired lungs. Somehow, it woke me up, and made me more aware of what was going on around me.
I looked at my three saviors/ captors. All three of them were pretending to be human, so they weren’t pale or glowing. All three of them had brown hair, in varying shades. Becka had medium brown; Alex’s hair was so light that it was almost blonde; Aaron’s dark hair almost black.
I was slightly jealous of them right now, even though I knew that I would soon be like them. They all kept the ethereal beauty of vampires, just with a tan and different color eyes.
Becka gently lifted me, snapping me out of my thoughts. She put me in the backseat of the large SUV that Alex had gotten for his birthday. She carefully placed all of the machines next to me, and then slid in next to me. Alex got in the drivers seat, and Aaron slid in beside him. They started the car without a word, and quickly drove off.
“So, where are we going?” I asked. I was surprised at how strong it sounded. Lately, all I could do was whisper or rasp…sometimes I could croak.
“We’re going down south a bit. We rented a cabin on the Oregon Coast. I know how much you love the ocean; I thought that might be a good place for your new life to begin.” Becka said. I smiled at her. She smiled back, and asked for Aaron to turn on the radio.
A loud blazing rock song came on. I laughed a little. It seemed like the perfect escape. Going with your friends; speeding along in a big car, heading to a new life.
Awhile later, I woke up to the sun beginning to rise. I realized I must have fallen asleep on the highway. I slowly lifted my head to look out the window. We were driving down a dirt road by the ocean, surrounded by tall pines.
“Well, good morning, sleepy head.” A light voice teased. I turned to see Becka looking at me, a smile on her beautiful face. I smiled back. I felt a lot better than I had last night, even though I had slept in the seat of a SUV. Her blue eyes were mischievous as she took in my appearance.
“When you are changed, I am giving you a full out makeover. Being in the hospital so long did no good for you!” she said. I groaned. A makeover, that would be so much fun for me to do.
We all were silent as we pulled into the driveway of the two story cottage. Aaron and Alex seemed excited, and Becka seemed thoughtful.
As the car stopped, I opened the door, not waiting for them to help me. I stumbled as I stood for the first time in weeks, but Becka was there to catch me. I smiled at her gratefully.
Becka led me into the cottage. It actually was quite nice. It was all pine, but had a modern look to it. All of the furniture was quite tasteful. It was all…now.
Aaron and Alex followed us. Becka looked at me seriously before speaking. “Are you sure you want to do this now?” She asked. She knew that I would have to do it, or I would die, but she didn’t know if I was ready yet.
“I’m ready, Beck. I’m not going to get any better, so we might as well do it now.” I said quietly. She nodded, and led me upstairs. She laid me down on a large queen size bed with a dark brown headboard, and golden sheets. There was a huge window in the room that showed a magnificent view of the Pacific Ocean.
She gave me a small smile as she took out all of the IVs, except for the morphine one. She took off my heart monitor, and put it all away in the corner. She slowly walked towards me, and bent down.
She lifted my shirt slightly, to get better access to my neck. “Sleep well, Bella. When you wake, you will be healed.” She whispered before biting down on my neck. All I knew before I lost consciousness was a small burning sensation trickling towards my heart.
