La Tua Cantante

As usual, this will come in two parts: Edward's pov and Bella's, but the first is always Bella's. I got this idea from watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, when Angel got shot with a poisoned arrow and has to drink Buffy's blood to survive. This is pretty much mid-Eclipse and the Volturi infected Edward with a disease called "Distruzione" (Italian for "Destruction") which only affects vampires and he will die unless he drinks the blood of his la tua cantante, which is Bella. This is just more hardships for Edward and Bella to fight through, but as always, they fight it together and never give up.

There are some adult-themed situations, so unfortunately this fanfic will have to be rated Adult instead of Everyone. Sorry to my younger fans, but please, exercise caution when reading this fanfic. It will get extremely detailed.

Everyone watched as I ate, almost as if to make sure I didn't collapse or something; it was quite unsettling. When I finished eating, I said, "What?! Stop staring at me."

"Sorry," they all murmured apologies and I sighed, "All right, Emmett. Your turn."

He groaned, "Do I have to?"

"Yes!" We all said, simultaneously.

He slumped down and folded his arms, looking away from me childishly, "Man!"

"Even more interesting; you got anymore of those Monsters?"

"Are you kidding; that's his most powerful weapon against us," Edward said, "If we are close to beating him in something, he threatens to hold us down and force us to drink it. It's quite an effective method, to be honest."

Emmett grimaced, "All right...just give me a second to prepare."

"Nuh-uh," Alice said, eagerly, "Bella didn't; let's do this now."

"Fine, I'll go get a can."

He sighed, getting up and walking grudgingly out of the room.

"Thanks for this, Bella," Jasper said, "His ego could definitely afford to be taken down a few notches."

I smiled and Jasper turned to Alice, "Go get the camera; this is blackmail material."

We all chuckled and waited impatiently for Emmett to return.

"Emmett, hurry up!" Edward called.

"In a minute!" Emmett called back, but Edward tensed up.

"What?" I asked, "What is it?"

"Emmett, don't you dare!" Edward yelled, taking off without warning.

"What...was that about?" I asked, looking to someone for help.

Alice rolled her eyes, "What an idiot! He really thinks he can outrun Edward? Stupid! I give him a good...hundredth of a second before he catches him...if he's lucky."

At that second, Edward came back, holding a struggling Emmett, "Damn it, Edward, let me go! This isn't funny anymore."

"Really?" Edward asked, amused, "Let's take a vote here. Who thinks this is funny?"

We all raised our hands, except for Rosalie and Emmett. Rosalie simply looked angry at the matter and irritated with us. Oops.

Emmett smacked his lips irritably, "Screw you guys! To hell with it, I'm not doing it."

"Wanna bet?" I asked, "I drank blood for you."

"No, you didn't, you did it to prove Edward wrong. Face it, you didn't like it anymore than I liked this."

"But, I still did it. What, are you a wuss, Emmett? Can't handle a little drink? Come on. Think of what you're giving up if you surrender now."

I didn't know what he got out of this if he did it, but it had to be something good. He looked off into space, considering it, before elbowing Edward in the ribs, causing him to release him and grunt. "Ow, God...what is the matter with you?"

"Emmett!" Esme reprimanded, as she moved around the room, cleaning up slightly.

"Sorry, Esme, I was just kidding." He said, half-apologetically, forcing a smile, gesturing punching Edward with his fist once she turned around. " 'I swear to God, I'll kill you...' " He mouthed.
Edward rolled his eyes and said, "Do you want a straw? So you can suck it up; or..." he broke off, smirking. "No one forced you to make this bet. You're the idiot who made the deal. You can't just back out of your end of the deal."

"FINE!" Emmett yelled, clenching his teeth and advancing irritably towards Edward, who simply returned his advance.

"I dare you..." Edward urged, "Come on, do it."

"Nah, I don't feel like it. Maybe later." Emmett said, carelessly, "I totally resent this..." he mumbled, "All right, come on!"

"Oh, no, you don't!" Esme protested, "You take this outside; I have to clean up."

"Oh, no, Esme; I'll clean up." I offered, "My mess, my bad."

"Nonsense." Esme said, smiling warmly, "You're a guest; guest don't help clean."

"I really don't mind," I said with a small chuckle, "I hardly qualify as a guest anymore."

"Edward," Esme said, turning away from me.

"I've got it," Edward said, smiling, "Bella, let me put it to you this way: you don't have a choice in the matter. Don't argue with her; it gets you no where."

"Fine," I relinquished, knowing he was probably right.

He walked over to me, helping me to my feet, and then led me outside once again as everyone followed.

We all made a semi-circle around Emmett,who groaned and cringed before opening the can. Everyone but me shuddered and grimaced at the smell, making their own signs of protest and revulsion. It didn't bother me, though.

"All right, Emmett..." I taunted, teasingly, "Chug it! Chug it! Chug it!"

"Do not rush me!" He said, grimacing at the can before slowly raising it to his lips. His lips began twitching in protest as the can got closer.

"Oh, come on!" We all yelled, causing him to take a huge gulp of it to make his point. Almost immediately, he dropped the can and spit out half the can's worth of it out, spraying it all over us.




Everyone protested in their own ways: Rosalie glared angrily at him and immediately began wringing out her now soaked hair, growling angrily in protest.

Jasper wiped it off his face and then turned to help Alice, who was the most soaked,as she was the closest.

Edward, being the most used to human scents, merely snorted and shook his head, which was drenched in it, sending drops of it falling all over the ground and onto me.

Emmett gagged dramatically and said, "EW! that is the worst stuff in the world! GROSS!"

"It's not that bad." I said, stifling my laughter.

"Are you kidding me; it tastes like CRAP!" Emmett thre a $50 bill at Edward and then ran away, still groaning in disgust.

Edward pocketed the 50 and laughed, "That was hilarious! I haven't seen him react like that in years."

Rosalie growled at him and then chased after Emmett.

We heard Emmett's shout of protests from the forest and Jasper rolled his eyes, "Dramatic much?"

"I knew he couldn't do it," Edward said, shaking his head.

I bent down and picked up the can, which still had a little left in it. I shrugged and drank it, causing them all to shout in protest:


"Oh, Bella!"

"What is that?! That's disgusting! It was on the ground!"

I smirked, "You all drink animal blood to stay alive and this is disgusting?"

Jasper and Alice had no further arguement, but

Edward said, "Yeah, but Emmett drank from that. God knows where it's been."

I shrugged again, "I'll take my chances."

Alice said, "You're a brave woman; I'd never do it."

I huffed and shook my head.

Alice said, "So...we still have another day until Charlie comes home. What do you want to do?"

"I don't wanna go home. Can I just...stay here? I don't wanna leave yet."

"Of course you can," she said, excitedly, "Ooh, we could play games and just hang out. Come on!"
Without giving us a choice, she grabbed me by my hand and dragged me inside.
