Jacob promised he'd stay awake with me, but the words died on his lips. His eyelids drooped and his chin fell forward to rest on his chest. When he began to snore softly, I knew I was safe to leave him. I slipped out of my seat and went to the lavatory. A stewardess eyed me suspiciously and I was tempted to flip her the bird. Instead, I ignored her and went into the tiny cramped room.
I stared at myself in the mirror. Jacob hadn't been able to tell in the dimly lit cabin of the plane, but my eyes were darkening; they were almost black. I could feel the hunger searing my stomach. It was going to be a long flight.
I sighed and plunged my hands through my long hair. It clung angrily to my splayed fingers like wisps of fire. My mind was free to wander, back to Forks, back to Bella, back to my vision. At first I fought, not wanting to be overtaken by the fear, but like always the fear won and I fell headlong into my own sight.
I was standing in a blood soaked meadow. The stench rose from the ground, choking me. Everything seemed red, cast frighteningly against a black sky. There was Edward, same as he'd been the first time. On his knees as if praying, but his face twisted in agony. Then behind him that radiant brown haired girl, and as she turned I saw her scarlet eyes, piercing me with malicious conviction.
I blinked myself back to the airplane bathroom. Tears coated my face. I wiped them away. I unwittingly made attempts to slow my breathing. It was a moment later that my mind reminded me how unnecessary this was. I laughed in spite of myself. My hands were trembling and my laughter sounded hallow.
I went back to my seat. Jacob was still asleep. I slid in next to him. Almost everyone around us was asleep, or starting to drift off. The stewardess who'd glared at me was walking down the isle. She paused beside my seat and leaned over me.
“Can I get you anything ma'am?” she asked. Her porcelain throat faced me and the artery pulsed near my ear. I bit my lower lip as the smell of her blood tickled my nose. I grabbed Jacob's arm apparently hard enough to wake him. He jumped and looked around. He saw the woman and shot a look at my face.
“We're fine, okay,” he growled, trying to send her away. She looked confused then perturbed, but she left.
“Thank you,” I whispered. “The sooner we land the sooner I can hunt.”
“Hunt what exactly?” asked Jacob, his voice both curious and accusatory.
“Probably just a deer,” I replied, not even ready to be bothered with his tone. As a sign of acceptance he hugged me by the shoulder. I felt as though he was keeping all the pieces of me together. I leaned into him and closed my eyes, pretending to sleep.
