Chapter 17

I dully stared at the ceiling of my room. I was so weak right now that I couldn’t even move my head. I was glad Edward had gone hunting. I didn’t think I could keep up the charade of just being tired anymore.

It had been a month at least since Edward came back, and I figured out Victoria had been in my room.

It had been almost six weeks since I had last gone hunting. I had never gone that long before without having anything to drink. The longest I had gone before was two weeks, and I had had trouble then even. I was a newborn; I needed to hunt frequently.

And now I was suffering the consequences of not doing what my body wanted.

Edward reluctantly decided to go hunting. He didn’t need to hunt as much as I did, but he still needed to. So with as much energy as I could muster, I cheerfully kicked him out the door to go out with Jasper and Emmett.

Alice had promised me that she would be watching out for me while they were gone. That was a little problematic for me.

I had finally figured out how to control whether or not Alice could see me. When I let down my shields and she had a vision of me, I felt a buzz in the back of my head. If I didn’t want her to see what I was doing, I just had to close off my mind. Right now, my mind was shut. She didn’t need to see me wasting away because I hadn’t hunted in over a month.

I was so lost in a daze I didn’t even notice when three vampires appeared out of nowhere in my room.

“I haven’t seen you in almost a month, and this is how I find you? You are hunting now,” a familiar voice commanded me. I was too weak to protest when I felt someone pick me up and disappear with me.

I was suddenly in a dark forest. I looked up to see Aaron holding me, looking slightly amused. He set me down and sprinted off. Becka and Alex waited by me.

Aaron came back a minute later with a large deer in his hands. He bit down into its neck, and then forced my head back. He tipped the blood into my mouth.

I lost awareness of everything around me. This was the closest I had ever come to a real bloodlust. I was aware of the warm blood trickling into my mouth, filling me up and giving me energy.

When the deer was drained dry, I sat up without any help. “Thanks,” I said gratefully.

Becka rolled her eyes. “You do know that you are only four months old now, right? You need to hunt at least every other week.”

I looked down, ashamed. I was already in my vampire form, so I didn’t need to worry about blushing. I had been too weak to keep up the illusion.

“When was the last time you went hunting?” Aaron asked as he got hid of the carcass.

“Um…six weeks, I think,” I replied unwillingly.

“And you guys call me the stupid one,” Alex muttered.

“Well, usually there’s a good reason for that,” Aaron said. I laughed and nodded my head.

“Alex, you’re not the one who’s stuck at home because everyone is so worried a psychotic vampire is going to get you when you’re alone and torture you to death. I’m being held captive in my own home,” I said bitterly.

“That would suck,” Alex said.

I shrugged. “I’d take the benefits it gives any day.”
