Irena’s POV

I ran toward La Push with a new found ferocity in my steps. I would be with my beloved Laurent soon. I knew that Tanya and the others would be upset, but they had to understand. Life without Laurent isn’t worth living. I was almost there, and I could already smell the wolves. When I came upon them, they were still in human form.

“You know what I am, but let me explain why I am here.”

“All right, but only because there are more of us than there are of you.” The one who spoke sounded like he might be the leader of the pack.

“I want you to kill me. You took, from me, my love, Laurent. I know that revenge is impossible; the Cullens vehemently refused that idea in mid-June. I have tried to endure life without him and it is futile. I know that my clan won’t grant my wish, and the Cullens won’t help, either. If you won’t kill me, I’ll ask the Volturi; I’d rather not involve them, though. I don’t want to live without him. Will you please help me?”

“Why ask us? We don’t want to offend any covens and risk losing one of our own in a war.”

“They know that I’m here, what I want, and why I came. They won’t hold any grudges. Even if any of my sisters did, the Cullens won’t; Bella in particular wouldn’t allow any harm to come to you. She would fight anyone that tried to come here avenging my death. Edward will be by her side no matter what, and the others will, too. Tanya, the leader of my coven, would even side with them because of Charlie.”

“Charlie Swan? What does he have to do with any of this?”

“He’s a vampire. He found out what the Cullens are and asked to join them because he didn’t want to lose Bella. She was the only thing he had left, before he met Tanya. He loves her.”

The one I presumed to be the leader looked at one of the younger boys and said, “Go and get Billy. He will want to hear this.” He turned back to me. He was about to speak when a woman among the group said, “Is Bella happy with her new life?”

“Yes, I believe that she is.”

“Sam, can I go phase and scream that in my mind? He needs to accept that she’s one of them and get over her. She is happy as a bloodsucker.”

“Leah, you know that all you want to do is taunt him. Jake will come home when he is ready. He needs time. I would think that you would understand.”

His expression was emotionless at the beginning of his statement but a look of pain showed for a few seconds toward the end. She had a look of sadness on her face, too.

“I do understand. That’s why he needs to get over Bella. That kind of pain is hell, through and through. I sympathize with you, Irena. Lost love is horrible to endure. I know that your kind is set in your ways about things like that. I’m sorry for your loss. I wasn’t even a wolf yet when that happened.”

“I don’t blame anyone; I just don’t want to live without him. Will you grant my wish?”

The young boy had come back with an older man in a wheelchair.

“What is going on here, Sam?”

The one named Sam spoke.

“She has news of Charlie and is also asking that we kill her.”

He asked why and I explained. A look of comprehension broke across his face.

“This is unusual. I don’t condone Charlie’s decision but at least he is happy. Thank you for the news of my old friend, Irena. Seth you may take me home now.”

We waited in silence for the boy, Seth, to return. When he arrived again, Sam turned to me.

“Are you sure that you want us to kill you? We have no problem with that, but surely you don’t want to die.”

“I don’t want to live without him. If you could kill him, then you can kill me. It should be much easier; I won’t try to defend myself.”

“So be it.”

We went deep into the woods and they transformed into wolves. I nodded for them to begin. I didn’t even feel their teeth; all I could think was that I wouldn’t have to live without Laurent any longer. I stood, not moving, as they did to my body what they had once done to my heart.
