“ Why are you trying so hard to hate me… when it hurts you,” he whispered, trying to understand.
“Because it keeps me sane Edward… look why don’t we try being friends,” I asked putting extra emphasis on the word ‘friends’.
“Just friends?” He asked incredously.
I nodded curtly.
“Fine… just friend”
I tried to step around him, but he grabbed my hand stopping me. He yanked me back to him and I slammed into his chest.
“Please… don’t do this,” he whispered, making it almost sound like a question. I looked into his eyes, and automatically wished I hadn’t. They were filled with a pain so strong that I was sure it was eating him inside out.
Pushing away slowly, I averted my eyes, stared at my brown flip-flops.
“I’m sorry, Edward, but I can’t take this right now,” I said glaring at my perfectly manicured toes.
I reached into my back pocket, and slipped something into his hand, closing his fingers around it. He needed to have it to understand just how serious I was about this “friends” thing.
And with that said and done, I walked back into the house called for my family, and drove home. However, not before seeing Edward look in his hand… and fall to the ground in sobs.
My family was worried about me, I could tell. They wouldn’t stop looking at me. I just smiled at them, although I think they could tell it was fake.
“Hey guys… I’m going to go hunt now,” I said.
“Wait, I’ll go with you,” Minnie’s young, innocent voice rang out behind me.
We took off into the forest, and I grimaced at the thought of the red liquid I was about to consume. As much as I needed it I hated it all the same. But it tasted so good.
My scent was heightened and suddenly I calculated a deer about 30 yards away. I ran after it, snapping its neck quickly, and biting into its neck.
The sweet liquid ran over my tongue, and I drank greedily. Yum.
Fox was my animal. I hunted like one, and they tasted the best, but I didn’t get them often up here. I would live though, deer would get me through. I drained three more, and then buried the bodies, moving quickly to join up with Minnie and get back to the house.
We walked in and I automatically went up to my room, falling gracefully onto my bed. Snort. Who would have ever though of me as graceful? That was a laugh.
I thought of everything that had happened today. I found my missing family, I remembered what love was, and for the first time in 71 years, I felt whole again.
I tucked my head in between my pillows… and cried. Happiness overwhelmed me, so I cried happy tears. John, Ali, and Minnie hated it when I got cheepy like this, but that was okay. I was happy again, and that was all that mattered. The hole in my chest was sealed.
I opened my hand and glanced down. I felt myself fall to the floor and invisible tears ran down my cheeks. It was really over. But it couldn’t be, I would fight until I no longer existed. I ran up to my room, locking the door and sliding into my bed. I placed the gift onto my bedside table. The gold, diamonds, and topaz sparkled brightly. Her ring.
