I felt my mind bordering between haziness and alertness. The pain in my arm wasn’t so extreme now, like it had been right before I blacked out. I knew I was beginning to heal automatically, but I could still feel the sting of the venom spreading though my arm. I decided to just wait until my body came to full wakefulness before making myself move.
As I drifted, I became aware of a faint tingling in the back of my mind, one that I hadn’t felt in three years. Not since the plane crash and our immediate disappearance. A familiar presence entered the shields around my mind, and I welcomed it in happily.
“Why did she black out like that? I mean, is it even possible for her to pass out?” A worried voice hissed quickly somewhere near me. I began to be aware of something very warm to one side, and something hard and cold underneath and to my other side.
“Do you really even need to ask that?” Alex’s voice sounded like it was meant to be teasing, but they held too much worry to guess on. “I mean, think who you’re talking about. She defies all rules.”
I felt another cool hand gently stroke my hair. “I still don’t understand how Felix could’ve gotten into the shield, or how he managed to teleport with us.” Becka’s voice seemed more worried than Alex’s.
I could still feel the tingle in the back of my mind. As the haze dispelled itself from my mind, I realized who it was. Alice. She was viewing this scene from wherever she was, though she couldn’t see my face. I was lying on Becka’s lap, my body turned away from the small fire in the center of our little group. I was aware of my arm hanging limply at my side, torn and mangled. I hope Alice didn’t freak out.
“I hope she can wake up soon so we can go. I don’t want Demetri to find us,” Aaron said quietly. I felt a hand pat my shoulder lightly. “Come on, wake up. You can do it.”
I knew that I should get up now, since we needed to move. The pain in my shoulder had lessened greatly, and I could move slightly without it hurting as much as it did earlier. That didn’t mean that I didn’t feel pain though.
I moaned softly as I turned over, facing the fire. I opened my eyes and saw Alex, Aaron and Becka hovering over me, each with worried and relieved looks on their face.
“How long have I been out?” I rasped out. My voice sounded weak and tired, and it scared me. I was a vampire; this shouldn’t be happening to me.
“Only about thirty minutes. Your arm was still on only by a thin ligament, it’s amazing you were able to use it still,” Becka said in awe. The others nodded.
“Where are we?” I asked, sitting up slowly. Becka helped me move, sitting me down next to the warm fire. I stared into the shimmering orange and red flames, thoughtfully wondering where we were, and why it was so familiar.
“We’re in Forks, near our cottage.”
I turned quickly, and then stood up. “We are?” I asked wildly, looking around. If the Cullens were here, then we could get them quickly and warn them to hide. There were many places we could take them that KJ owned.
The others nodded. “We went to the Cullens house, Bella, and they aren’t there. They must have moved on from here,” Aaron told me gently. I fought a war with my emotions to keep my disappointment hidden.
“Yeah, and we’re taking you to KJ before anything else,” Becka said firmly. I frowned at her, and she noticed. “Okay, no vampire passes out just because someone bit them. Something’s wrong.”
I cursed vehemently under my breath. Alex raised his eyes at me. “Wow Bella, someone’s a little grumpy today.” I just growled under my breath in response.
“Alright you two, lets go. We can’t stay here to long or the Volturi will be able to track us down really quickly. Don’t forget that Alec is in Montreal right now. He could get here pretty quick,” Aaron warned.
I frowned. “It doesn’t matter. They know that this is the first place we would go,” I said indifferently. “I mean, this is the place we’ve hung out the most before we had to leave.”
The others stared at me blankly, and I shook my head. I wondered how they were even smart enough to last the first year with the Volturi, and learning the languages needed.
“Dobbiano andare,” I muttered quietly, telling the others we needed to go. They all smirked at my language choice, and they stepped forward.
I just prayed we could get this done fast enough.
