This is a sequel to A CHANGE IN MONSTERS, so I would suggest reading that first. Bella/Sam

When I reached the stairs, I immediately saw the love of my life standing at the bottom of the stairs. A smile crept across his face when he noticed me. I leapt down the steps as fast as I could. I would do anything for Sam!
Once I was where Sam was, I jumped into his arms, wrapping both my legs and arms around him. I planted his jaw with small, sweet kisses before kissing him fully on the lips. I smile widely against his lips and opened my eyes slowly.
“Someone excited?” he asked, his eyes still closed.
“Only because I’m with you,” I whispered and kissed his lips again.
We broke apart when we heard someone clearing their throat. I detangled myself from Sam’s body and moved next to him as his arms swept around my waist.
Heidi was standing there, accompanied by… Marcus. I gulped loudly, but no one seemed to take notice. I felt his gaze on me, so I looked up and immediately turned away. I would not allow this to ruin my night.
Mark my words.
The four of us walked into the ballroom together. Marcus and Heidi immediately went off to find Aro and Caius. There were so many people here. I would never expect there to be so many.
I breathed in through my nose and got whiff of blood. My nostrils flared, but I got contain it. I wouldn’t give into temptation tonight. Any temptation.
Strong arms wrapped around me from behind. “Hey pretty lady, want to dance?” I rolled my eyes and kissed Sam’s chin.
“Sure, sexy man.”
Sam and I danced song after song, never taking a break. The scent of the blood coming from the humans in attendance was wearing away and any thoughts of Marcus. I could actually, truly enjoy myself!
“Whew!” Sam said when we took a break. “I haven’t danced that much… ever! I am so tired! Is that even possible? For our kind to be tired?”
I smiled, panting and shrugged. I bowed down my head from laughing and then looked up into Sam’s eyes.
“When was the last time you had something to… eat?” I asked furiously. “You’re eyes are black! You won’t be able to resist the blood soon. You will eventually give into temptation.”
There was that word again. I sighed.
“Sam, go get something to… eat. Then, come right back. I don’t think I can last long without you. Okay?” Sam’s lips pulled up into a small smile and he nodded.
“I don’t want to ruin your evening,” he whispered.
“Sam… You could never ruin my evening. I love you too much. If anything, you make my evening more amazing than it ever could be.”
“Aw, thanks doll,” he said, kissing my head. “I’ll be back soon!” I smiled as he ran off.
I sighed and turned back to the many people crowding the square. I realized that I knew no one here. There was no point in me staying. Sam would be able to find me, I knew.
So, I turned and walked back toward the Volturi castle. Once I was in, I slowed my pace and eventually turned into a little alleyway type hallway. I leaned against the cold, damp stone wall and let out a breath.
I needed to rest. Just to sit for a minute or two. But, as I was about to sit down, someone came in front of me, holding me up. I tried to squirm free of his—I could tell it was a he by the feeling of their strong arms—grasp.
Soon though, I gave up and immediately felt his lips attacking mine.
“Mmm,” I grunted, trying to push him off of me. He definitely was not human. Vampire? Most likely. Stronger than me, too.
“Get off!” I yelled as I finally got him to let go and move away. “What the hell do you think that you are doing? That was uncalled for. Who are you?”
The man did not speak. He stood there for a few moments, staring at me before taking a couple of steps back into the light.
“What did you think you were doing?” I asked, dry sobbing. I shook my head and ran past him, deliberately hitting my shoulder against his. Serves him right.
I ran. I ran all the way to the forest where I knew Sam would be.
As much as I had dreamed and thought about cheating on Sam, when it actually happened, it felt awful! Down right awful! And, I felt like a terrible person.
Now, I had to admit that technically I didn’t kiss back. But, I think it was the fact that I had been kissed while in a perfect relationship is what gnawed at me.
I finally spotted Sam in a clearing and took off even faster. I ran into him and wrapped my arms tightly around his neck, pressing my face into his shoulder still dry sobbing.
Sam chuckled at first, not noticing that I was upset. He wrapped his arms around my waist and buried his face into my hair. Then, he noticed.
“Bells? Bella?” he asked frantically, pulling away and pressing a finger under my chin to look at me. “Honey, what’s wrong? Why are you upset?”
“Sam…” I started and then broke off. He wrapped his arms tighter around me and started running his hands through my hair and making shushing noises.
Once I had finally calmed down enough to talk I said, “Sam we really, really have to leave!” I was shaking violently, and I almost could smile from the memories of Sam and Jacob and the rest of them when they got really emotional.
Sam did not even question me. He just nodded and said, “You wouldn’t mind traveling on my back, would you?”
I shook my head, slightly confused. Sam nodded for me to hop on, so, I did.
“Hold on,” he told me. Then, he morphed. Back into the beautiful, black wolf that I had come to know and love. I was taken aback. I knew that he could still morph into his wolf form, but I hadn’t seen him do it since he was changed.
His wolf form was… different. The fur was shiny and it felt smooth under my hand. It distracted me momentarily about why we were leaving Italy.
A growl rumbled through Sam’s chest, and I took it for me to hold on. I wrapped my arms tightly around the wolf’s thick neck and buried my face deep into the silky smooth fur. I giggled like a little girl as Sam ran. I knew that when we would get home, my hair would be full of leaves and twigs.
Sam never stopped once. But, I did look up. It was adrenaline pumping—if that were possible. He was going faster than I ever had. I wondered if it was because of the mixture of wolf and vampire that was making his speed increase. I bet that was it.
I could not wait to get home, though. I desperately need to talk to girls. I need my girl time with Esme, Alice, and Rosalie. They would be able to help me with what I was feeling. At least, I really hoped they would be able to. I was not really sure if they had had any experience. I hoped, though.
I could feel Sam gradually slow to a steady pace and I knew that we were close. I was so… happy to be back in Washington. Funny. I never thought I would be saying that. Rain still wasn’t my thing, but I was learning to deal with it.
Sam stopped and I slid off of him and place a tender kiss on his doggie head and scratched him behind the ears. He leaned into my palm. I smiled softly and then removed my hand.
“Come on, Sam,” I said, thumping my hands against my thighs like how I would call a dog. He whimpered and I looked at him.
“Oh,” I said understanding. “Clothing. You stay here and I’ll run up to get you some sweats to change into, and then bring them back.” Good, I thought to myself, I needed a good distraction anyway.
Sam’s nose hit my hand playfully and I took that as a yes. I laughed and petted him on the head before retreating up to the house.
It looked almost completely dark from the outside, but I could see a small light on at the back of the house. I wondered where everyone was.
I opened the door once I reached it and stepped into the house, looking around. Where were they?
“Hello?” I asked into quiet house.
There was no answer and I moved further into the house toward where I saw the light.
“Hello?” I repeated a little louder.
Again, there was no answer.
I started panicking a little, still heading for the light. What if something bad had happened to them? What if they were all… dead?
“Alice?” I yelled. “Rosalie? Emmett? Jasper? Carlisle? Esme?”
“Bella?” I sighed with relief as Alice came into my view. “You’re home! Hey! Everybody, Bella is back!” She ran up to me and threw herself into my arms.
I watched over her shoulder as the rest of the family trudged in behind her. I waved to them and then waved back, small smiles on their faces.
“Hello, Bella,” someone said as they walked into the room.
What was he doing here?
