13. Tragedy

Rating 5/5   Word Count 992   Review this Chapter

I hate myself. I hope I die. Though I know the only way is to get a vampire to, that’ll be hard. I’m in the Volturi and my own family was terrified of me, who’s stupid enough to do that.

Newborns.

“Don’t even think about it Bella.” Edward moaned, leaning to wrap his arms around me.

I groaned and pulled my shield up. Edward was suffering with me this whole time and I didn’t even know it. I really need to work on that.

“Bella it’s my fault.” Edward said, “I didn’t fight fair.”

“Don’t try to make this your fault,” I said, pushing him away.

“Bella please get up, you’ve been laying there since you fell an hour ago.” Felix said.

“I said leave me.” I hissed.

The fall or hitting the ground didn’t hurt. Though I wished it did. Edward and I separated about halfway, more than enough time for me to realized what I’d done. Ever since then, I’d curled up in a ball and barely let anyone touch me, I was afraid my stupid would rub off on them.

Felix was way to understanding. I hurt because I knew he hurt, though he tried not to show it.

He wanted me to be with who I was happy with.

“Momma?” I heard Resa call from a few feet in the forest.

I sighed and sat up, “Over here baby.” I held out my arms and she ran to me.

“Sorry,” Carlisle said, “I didn’t want to run and risk scaring her. So we walked.”

I nodded, “Just tell her to close her eyes.”

“The humans okay?” Felix asked.

“Yeah,” Carlisle answered, “They all pulled out their cell phones the second they hit the ground.”

Resa turned and sat in my lap, twirling my hair. I looked from Felix to Edward.

Edward. Precious. Beautiful. Caring. I stared into his gold eyes and nearly flinched away. Even when he joined us, he stuck with animals. Would I be able to look into those eyes forever without any guilt or pain.

But I have to remember: he left me. What if he does again?

Felix. Wonderful. Kind. Angelic. His red eyes horrified me now, though it wouldn’t be hard to have him change his diet, he gets used to things quickly. Would it be too hard at first? What if it is too hard the whole time and he just hides it?

Felix has loved me more than anything the whole time, but I haven’t loved him more than anything the whole time.

They both deserve better.

Felix held out his arms and Resa ran to him, “Sweetie, can you go play with…er…” he looked at Edward, “Uncle Dad?”

Edward snorted and held out his arms, she went to him and they walked off. She had backwards instincts or something, playing with vampires, what’s wrong with her.

I paused.

I’m such a hypocrite.

Felix walked over to me and held out his hands, “You can’t stay like that forever.”

I sighed, nodded, and stood up, “Yeah.”

“Bella, I want you to be with who you’re happy with. I want you to be happy.” He said, “Whichever one is better-”

“Stop,” I moaned, “I can’t take it! I WANT to be with you! I want you to not fight fair too!”

“Ella-”

“No, please Felix! Fight for me! Fight back!” I kissed him and he kissed me back but pulled away

“You sure Ella-Bella? I will if and only if that’s what you want.” He said.

I nodded fiercely.

He laughed, “Then let’s get out of this jungle and bring Resa home.”

I backpedaled, “Home?”

He kissed my nose, “Yep.”

“You don’t mean Volterra-?”

Another kiss. “Nope.”

“You sure?”

Another. “Yep.”

“Then what?” I demanded.

He laughed at my frustration, “I bought a house in Forks.”

I gasped, “You didn’t!”

He nodded, “From now on, we have a home. The Cullens excepted us! We live close to them.”

I smiled, “I love you.”

He grinned, “I know.”

My face fell, “What about the Volturi?”

He smiled, “I have a plan.”

Then drastic news hit.

“What?” My knees buckled and I hit the ground. Rosalie and I never really got along, but this. I never wanted this.

“How?” Edward demanded, teeth clenched and face colored in pain.

“A newborn got out of hand. It tried to kill Esme and Rosalie saved her and… well… Rosalie ended up getting killed.” Carlisle’s voice was doctor-y and unattached, but I could tell he was suffering.

A hollow ringing filled my ears and the world went black, all that was let was the voices that echoed in my head.

“When?”

“Yesterday.”

“Who?”

He paused.

“Who?!”

“Anna.”

“Where is she?!” I yelled, “I rip her a new ass! I’ll kill her!”

“She’s dead too.”

“How?”

“Emmett.”

Emmett.

Emmett.

EMMETT!

“Oh my God, how is he?” I demanded.

“Dead. He’s… awful.”

I looked down.

“Can I see him?” Zury asked.

“Yeah, follow me.”

Carlisle led us to him, and what I saw was… me… when Edward was gone. Dead.

Emmett was there, but he wasn’t. He was staring blankly at the wall. You could tell his soul had left his body. Anna may have just burned Rosalie, but she might as well have thrown Emmett in there too. He died too.

Azuria gasped, “Emmett?”

He looked up a her, then back down.

“Emmett, are you okay?”

He shook his head.

She went and sat next to him, “I- I’m sorry.”

He sat there, and she continued to try to talk to him while the rest of us left.

When things didn’t look much worse… the werewolves got violent.
