I turned quickly to see what he was growling at. His gaze was focused on the latched window which was locked very securely. Nobody would have been able to get in or out…if they were mortal. I wondered why the hospital took such drastic actions. I asked Edward about it after he turned away from the window.

“They just want to make sure. They don’t want the disease to spread more then it has to. It’s pretty contagious and they want to contain it as much as possible. They will probably let us go when more medicine for the disease arrives. It’s nothing to worry about.” But I could see the he was partly lying.

“What are you not telling me Edward?” I asked stubbornly. He looked into my eyes and sighed deeply.

“I don’t know if your body is up for fighting away a disease right now-”

“You think that I’m going to die?” I asked incredulous.

“No! I’m just a little worried!” Edward said quickly. I rolled my eyes at him.

“You worry too much.”

“Probably,” he said chuckling. He leaned in to give me a quick kiss. Like many times before, I lost control of myself and flung my arms around Edward’s neck and kissed him harder. He pulled away chuckling some more.
“I have to work on that,” I said gasping for breath. I leaned back in my bed and closed my eyes. The snapped them open again. “What were you growling about earlier?” I asked cautiously. He sighed deeply again.

“You heard that?” he asked sadly. I nodded. “I thought that I heard something. It was nothing.” He looked away from me, focusing on the doorway. Alice burst in, anxious about something.

“Bella!” she shrieked. “Edward! You have to get Bella out of here!”

“Calm down, Alice,” Edward said calmly. “It’s not going to happen.”

“But my vision-”

“I’m going to get medicine for Bella as soon as possible. The flu is not going to kill her,” Edward said with a false sense of confidence. As if to disprove him, the person in the room next to mine started to cough again. The doctors were discussing the situation in the hallway.

“What are we going to do? We don’t have enough medicine for everyone here. The shipment is going to come on Monday. We still have a day to wait. Not to mention what we have to do to get it in the hospital-” a doctor started to say.

“Hush. We can’t have a rumor about this going around. A few people may die if they have it bad, but that’s all,” another doctor said. Anger grew in me. Just a few people will die? When is ever a few people dead just a few to their family’s.

“They’re idiots,” Edward said to get my attention away from the doctors. He smiled at me. “You are not going to die. You’re stronger then that.”

“You almost died. In fact, you would have if you weren’t changed. I don’t think you should underestimate the disease, Edward,” Alice said coldly. Edward’s face grew hard and pained.

“That was before we had modern medicine.”

“Well, maybe if we have the medicine-”

“Stop it, Alice,” Edward said stonily. He turned his back to her and looked towards the window again. Alice quickly turned and walked out the door. I could hear her arguing with the medical staff halfway down the hall. I heard foot steps coming back to the room. Alice reentered the room with a bottle of medicine in her hand. She gave me a tablet and a glass of water.

“At least I’m keeping the vision from happening,” Alice said gruffly. I swallowed the tablet and took a swing of water. Alice smiled and sat down on a chair in the corner. “This would never of happened if that stupid doctor stayed home sick,” she muttered under her breath.

“No, not really Alice,” I said quickly. She looked up in confusion. “James infected the hospit-”

“WHAT!” Beck, Alice and Edward screamed at the top of their lungs causing dozens of medical staff to rush into the room.

“We don’t need your help!” Edward yelled at the already retreating figures. He turned quickly to me. “James did this? I bet that no good Jonathan had a hand in this, too,” Edward said. He was fuming and looked like he really wanted to hit something. He looked around the room and his sight landed on a pillow. He picked it up and tore it to shreds. “The frustrating thing here is that I can’t kill him!” Edward shouted. A doctor rushed in alarmed. “WE DON’T NEED ANY HELP!” Edward yelled. The doctor looked horrified and ran out of the room.

“Calm down, Edward!” I said before he did something stupid like punch a whole in the wall. I opened my mouth to say something else to calm Edward down, but a small cough came up. I closed my mouth before it became audible. But Edward, with his stupid supersonic hearing, turned around quickly and stared at me in horror. Another cough came up and I couldn’t hold it in.

“Alice get more medicine!” Edward called out. Alice just stared at me dumbstruck.

“But I already gave her medicine today-”

“The medicine is tainted,” Beck growled.

“What?” Edward asked angrily.

“That’s why no one is getting better. James must have somehow tainted the medicine or replaced it with something else. No one here actually got any real medicine,” Beck said sadly. But her face changed to anger quickly. I coughed more and harder. Edward rushed to get me water. I drank it greedily but it hardly helped. I felt myself get sweaty and my head felt like it was on fire. Edward was staring at me in horror. He growled very loudly. Another doctor rushed in.

“Is there a wild animal in here?” she asked. Edward turned to her slowly.

“No, there is not. Now get out of here before-”

“There’s no need for alarm, Doctor! Goodbye now!” Alice cut Edward off and pushed the doctor out of the room.

“But-” Alice slammed and locked the door before the doctor could continue her sentence. She turned to Edward in fright. “Edward! You might have gotten us in big trouble!”

“I don’t care! All I want to think about is beating the crap out of Jonathan and James!” Edward yelled loudly.

“Don’t blame me for James’s mistakes,” a voice that caused chills to go up my spine said. I turned my head slowly to see Jonathan standing in front of the window. “But I still have some unfinished business to attend to, it you will excuse me.” Jonathan walked towards me with a wicked smile plastered on his face.
