The stream of fire seemed to expand as it flew towards me. I saw how Jonathan’s face portrayed his excitement at the thought of me dead. Reality came crushing down on me. I was going to die, I was never going to find Edward. I was going to die and he was going to stay on Earth either dead with sadness or happy to finally have me out of his hair. I hoped that it was going to be the first one. I closed my eyes and waited for death. I couldn’t believe how easily I was giving up. Well I did it once and I will do it again. But I knew that I couldn’t escape. The fire was coming too fast. I opened my eyes again to take on last look at Alice and Beth. But Alice was not there. Instead there was something cold and hard knocking in to me, pushing me out of the way of the fire.

I landed on the ground hard and Alice was on top of me. She was breathing hard and she looked really, really angry. Her nose was flaring and her eyes didn’t hold any civilized nature. She jumped off me and ran towards Jonathan, probably to give him the beating of his life. It all came crashing onto me. I wasn’t going to die. I was alive, thanks to Alice. I missed her so much. Tears of joy streamed down my face and I quickly wiped them away from my cheek. Meanwhile, Jonathan and James were facing the wrath of a very pissed of Alice. I almost felt sorry for them. Almost. I looked over to the place Victoria fell. She was still laying there. I wondered what happened. Maybe a demon could kill a vampire with out ripping them to shreds. The thought made me shudder. I hoped that Victoria never became a demon. She would be after me for eternity. I shuddered again. Beck was helping Alice beat up the two demons. I chuckled despite the situation. I was suddenly cold. I moved into the sunshine and tried to soak in it’s warmth. I sighed and sat on the ground. I entirely forgot that there was a battle going on behind me, but I wouldn’t let myself remember. I didn’t want to remember. All I wanted to remember was Edward’s sweet voice. But I couldn’t. I would have thought that the danger I was in would make my hallucinations come back, but they didn’t. Maybe because I didn’t try to block Edward from my mind anymore, my body had no need for them anymore. Or maybe it was because I wasn’t putting myself into danger deliberately. Maybe…I looked towards Victoria’s figure laying on the ground. I stood up and started to walk over to her. Every single part of me was screaming at me to stop it, but I couldn’t make my legs stop walking. Suddenly, I heard his voice.

Stop walking Bella, it said beautifully. I smiled and took another step forward. This is crazy Bella. You can’t put yourself in danger for this. Just live until you can hear it for real, the fake-Edward voice tried to reason. Hmmm…it seemed logical. Fine. I would stop my hallucinations if I would get to see Edward and hear his voice again. And I would, I made that vow a little while ago. And I intended on keeping that promise. No matter what. But my promise was broken as soon as Victoria with lightning speed got up and grabbed me. She muffled my scream and ran off with me under her arm.

We were in a meadow somewhere along ways away before she dropped me on the ground in the shade. She looked around quickly and then turned to glare at me evilly. She laughed maniacally and looked at me huddled on the ground. That just made her laugh even more.

“I should wait for James and Jonathan to get here, but I just really want to kill you right now,” she said trying to decide what to do. She would torture me if she got her hands on me. Jonathan I knew would just kill me right away. I wondered why he was desperate to kill everyone Beck is in charge of. “In fact…I’m going to kill you now!” she said all to eagerly. She crouched down and barred her teeth at me. “This is going to be fun.”

“Stop, Victoria,” Jonathan’s bored voice echoed through the meadow. Victoria stood up strait and rolled her eyes.

“Yes, master,” she said sarcastically. She took a step away from me and glared at me. She spit venom at my feet. I was glad that she missed my foot, but I still hated her even more for the hostile gesture.

“So, Bella. There’s no one here to stop me now,” Jonathan said with a smirk.

“Where’s Alice and Beck?” I asked worriedly. Jonathan rolled his eyes.

“James has them distracted. And even if they did get away from him, they will have a little trouble finding us. I made sure of that,” he said. I wondered what he did to mess up the trail. I didn’t worry about that though. I was just focusing on trying to stay alive.

“Why?” I blurted out.

“What?” he asked confused.

“Why are heaven and hell fighting? Why do people have to suffer?” I yelled at him. He looked taken aback by my outburst.

“Because, how else can heaven and hell fight? We can’t have wars, each side can’t die. So we fight the only way we can. We use human.”

“But can’t you just…not fight?”

“We have been fighting for all eternity, why should we stop now?”

“Because it’s the right thing to do.”

“That does not matter! Neither side cares if it’s wrong! Hell doesn’t and Heaven doesn’t! You all are just humans!”

“We are not just humans! We have lives! We have dreams! We are alive and breathing and we don’t want that to be taken away from us!” I yelled pointing a finger at Jonathan. “And you surely aren’t helping the cause!” I yelled. Tears welled up in my eyes. “Maybe humans don’t want you all to interfere!”

“That does not matter! We are and we will always! Anyways, if a person lives through their experience, then they forget everything they ever knew about angels and demons! And the people who are chosen to be helped are usually going to die soon anyway!” I gasped. I was going to die…I wondered how. It probably had something to do with Victoria.

“Humans aren’t just toys for you guys to play with,” I muttered. I knew that he could hear me. “We deserve to live.” It looked like Jonathan was going to respond, but he was caught off by a voice that made me shake violently.

“Especially if that person can make a vampire feel again.” The voice was just how I remembered it. I turned my teary eyes to the sight that missed so much. His bronze hair, topaz eyes, everything about him was beautiful. Edward was standing not twenty feet away and my heart felt like it was going to burst into a million pieces.
