It was remarkable how easily I melted under Jacob’s gaze. He stared at me with a mixture of pain and anguish. He was still holding my face. I reached up my hand and took hold of his finger. Despite my aching chest, I felt comforted. The others were still staring at us.
“She’s on our land,” someone hissed. Jacob didn’t move, just kept staring at me. I swallowed. The wolves were part of this. Somehow, someone had to make a choice, had to stop the inevitable from happening.
“I saw something,” I whispered, but I knew they could hear me. They tensed, all staring. “Something about Bella. The others came here to kill her because they’re afraid of her. They’re afraid of what she’ll be if she’s changed. I saw it, she’ll kill people. Humans, vampires, wolves, she’ll kill everyone.”
“We wouldn’t let that happen,” came a different voice from the pack. I shook my head in despair. They would let it happen, they wouldn’t have a choice. Jacob’s eyes held the answer before I could say it.
“We won’t stop her,” he said sadly. “We won’t and they won’t, because she’s our friend. We’ll try to save her.”
“Die trying,” I finished. I shook my head. “Ambrosi came to kill her before she was changed, so what I saw could never happen. The Volturi won’t stand for competition. And trust me, Bella’s going to be big competition. They see her demise as their only option.”
“We can’t let him kill her,” said Jacob. His voice broke as he stared at me. He was completely hers. I could see it. I’d lost the battle. It was over. Strangely, I felt nothing at the prospect of losing Jacob. I thought I would’ve been sad, heartbroken. As I looked at him though, I knew it was the right choice.
I thought about choices as I ran with the wolves back to the Cullen home. Avery said that someone had to make a choice to change things. Was that someone me? Was it Bella? Could she choose to stay a human, to not be a monster and lose her love forever? Could she find a way to have both her love and her sanity? I couldn’t see the answer, though I searched fervently.
They were all in the yard waiting for us when we arrived. Alice’s face was twisted with fear. I knew why before she said it.
“They’re coming,” she said her voice quivering. As the words left her lips the smell caught my nose and I turned to the north. It was too late. No time to run, no time to feel, barely time to be ready.
When Ambrosi entered the clearing, he was flanked by several brutish vampires. I recognized a few. They were ready for a fight. They’d anticipated the Cullens, the wolves, everything. We’d been outdone. Bella stood in the back, safely behind her beloved. He wanted to run with her, I sensed it. There was nowhere to go. I sucked in an unnecessary breath, preparing.
