I could feel the wolves following me as I ran back to the border. I could feel Jacob's smirk, him trying to impress his friends by breaking the bloodsucker. Rage boiled in me as I ran, and slowly my tears faded. Clenching my fists and grinding my teeth, I kicked up the pace. Still they followed. I could feel when I passed the border, the air got colder. I spun to face the wolves.

“You want to prove who's better Dog-boy?” I yelled. I couldn't see Jacob, but I could feel him staring. Then all four of them broke the tree line, standing side by side, fur shining in the moonlight. I was furious. There was no fear, no cowardice, only anger. Jacob broke from the line and stepped toward me hesitantly. He shot a look back his friends and at me again. His brow was furrowed and his enormous jaw was clamped shut. There was no grin on his face.

“You were right,” I hissed, my voice low. I know he heard me because he cocked his head sideways. “We couldn't ever be friends. I may not have been raised to hate you, but I've learned!” I growled, low in my throat and bared my teeth. Jacob, backed up a little. Behind him the black wolf howled, and then the three ran back into the woods. Jacob paused a moment, his eyes sad, before he followed them.

I deflated, falling onto the grass. I laid there, devoid of anger or sorrow. I remembered why I'd left the Cullens in the first place. What would Jacob think about me killing other vampires? I couldn't imagine him disliking me anymore than he already did. I sighed. At dawn it would be over, and someone's life would change forever. I stared up at the inky black night sky, dotted with stars. Closing my eyes, I tried to lose myself.

I was so far gone I didn't hear or smell him until he had his booted foot planted firmly on my chest. Ambrosi chuckled as my eyes flew open. His five remaining soldiers stood with him, all bearing the same half grin. Normally, I would have been terrified. I should have been terrified, but I growled involuntarily. At this Ambrosi laughed aloud. I squirmed under his foot.

“What's a matter kitten?” he purred, his teeth glinting.

“You can kill me,” I snarled. “You won't win. It's too late. They know your plan and they're gonna stop you.”

Ambrosi lifted his foot off of my chest as he laughed aloud again. He delivered a sharp kick to my rib cage that rattled my teeth. I rolled onto my side with my back facing him, groaning. The others laughed with him. He kicked me again in the back and this time I cried out.

“You think we didn't know?” he laughed. “You think we're going to let that little girl live?” He laughed again and his company with him.

“Why are you doing this?” I asked, my voice strained with pain.

“Because, kitten,” he said, leaning down to whisper in my ear, “that child could rule us all and we won't have that now will we?”
