I noticed that Bella was awake then. Her face went immediately from panic to confusion. She was obviously confused to why Edward was growling at the window. The rustle turned out just to be the wind, but Edward was being very protective of Bella at the moment.

“What’s wrong, Edward,” she asked, her eyes still drooping a little from exhaustion. “Why is the window bolted shut?” I raised my eye brows at her question. I was sure she was going to ask the logical question here: Why are you growling at the window? Is Jonathan, James or Victoria here?

“They (the doctors) 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.” Everyone could see that he was lying.

“What are you not telling me Edward?” Bella asked stubbornly. Edward hesitated for a moment, but then looked into Bella’s eyes. Just tell her already, I thought to Edward. He sighed and then answered her question.

“I don’t know if your body is up for fighting away a disease right now-” he started out, talking almost too fast for Bella to ear him.

“You think that I’m going to die?” she asked incredulous, her eyes wide.

“No! I’m just a little worried!” Edward said quickly. Bella rolled her eyes at him, which really surprised me, considering the situation she was in.

“You worry too much.” But you don’t know the half of it

“Probably,” Edward responded, chuckling dryly. He leaned down and gave Bella a quick kiss. But, of course, she lost control of herself and flung herself at Edward, clasping her hands in his hair. He pulled back a little startled.

“I have to work on that,” she said, gasping for breath. She leaned back in the bed to go to sleep again, but her eyes snapped open. “What were you growling about earlier?” she asked cautiously. About time she asked that… Edward just sighed again.

“You heard that?” he asked sadly. Bella nodded. “I thought that I heard something. It was nothing.” He looked away from Bella then, not wanting to see the look on her face.

“Bella!”Alice shrieked suddenly. “Edward! You have to get Bella out of here!” We all whipped our head around to see Alice wild with panic.

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

“But my vision-” Alice started. I wondered briefly what the vision was.

“We’re 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 ours 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. WHAT? Monday? How idiotic, brainless, moronic, selfish are these doctors?! Just a few people? Just a few people I will have to see come through Heaven’s gate with dull and confused expressions in their eyes! A lot more people are going to die then just a few if they don’t have medicine by Monday! Anger blew up in me. It took all of my control not to turn those doctors into dust on the spot.

“They’re idiots,” Edward said, prying Bella’s attention from the doctors. “You are not going to die. You’re stronger then that,” he said, smiling down at her.

“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. Ouch

“That was before we had modern medicine,” Edward said, starting to get angry. Bella was looking confused and worried, her gaze straying from Alice to Edward.

“Well, maybe if we have the medicine-” Alice said angrily.

“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 a confused Bella some tablets and a glass of water,

“At least I’m keeping the vision from happening,” Alice said gruffly. Bella swallowed the medication and drank some of the water. “This would never of happened if that stupid doctor stayed home sick,” Alice muttered under her breath.

“No, not really Alice,” Bella said quickly. We all looked up in confusion. “James infected the hospit-”

“WHAT!” Alice, Edward and I screamed at the top of their lungs causing dozens of medical staff to rush into the room. WHHAAAATTT!!!!??? THAT INCOMPETENT, STUPID, LAME EXCUSE FOR A DEMON OR EVEN A VAMPIRE DID THIS? IT’S AGAINST THE RULES! HE CAN’T HURT INNOCENTS! WHEN I GET MY HANDS ON THAT GOOD FOR NOTHING MORON HE WOULD WISH THAT HE WAS NEVER EVER-

“We don’t need your help!” Edward yelled at the already retreating doctors, cutting off the rant in my head. He turned quickly to Bella, anger in his eyes. “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. My whole body was shaking with rage. All I wanted to do was tear through James and burn his ashes. No, I wanted to do worse. I wanted to inflict the most amount of pain possible on him. I wanted to-

“Calm down, Edward!” Bella said before to Edward, again cutting off the murderous thoughts in my head. But it was a good thing, too, because if she let either of us get any angrier, something very drastic and very bad was going to happen. Bella opened her mouth to say something else to calm Edward down, but a small cough came up. She tried to close her mouth before it became audible, but we all heard it. We all turned around to stare at her in horror. She coughed again, this time she couldn’t hold it in.

“Alice get more medicine!” Edward called out. Alice just stared at Bella dumbstruck. How could this have happened? We gave her medicine and everything-OH…

“But I already gave her medicine today-” James is going to DIE!

“The medicine is tainted,” I growled after I figured it out. He didn’t just infect the hospital, he made it so that no one would even make it out alive!

“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,” I said sadly. All of those poor people. But then my sadness turned into anger. James did this! And probably Jonathan, too! I never thought he was that evil but if he shows his face up around here ever again he will have to face me! Bella coughed more and more, sending me deeper into my rage. Edward got Bella some water, but it didn’t seem like it helped her at all. She was getting all sweaty and when I put my hand to her head it was on fire. We all stared at her in horror. What demon was evil enough to actually do this? Edward then growled very loudly.

“Is there a wild animal in here?”a doctor asked. I swear! If another doctor comes barging in on us I am going to kick him out of this room personally! Edward turned his head around very slowly.

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

“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 I hated with a passion said. Once I laid eyes on his I had the undeniable urge to tear him apart limb by limb. “But I still have some unfinished business to attend to, it you will excuse me.” Jonathan walked towards Bella with a wicked smile plastered on his face. If he thought he was going to get Bella he was defiantly mistaken.
