All precautions were made to Marin’s instructions. Bella had to stay in plain sight so that no more kidnap heists would be attempted. After everyone had a pair of sunglasses on, Marin looked around proudly. She walked over the to refrigerator and opened the door. A cool blast of air met her and made her shiver a little. This reminder her of her morality. Even if she was immune to the vampire’s stares, she had to watch her back as well.
The only things in the refrigerator were some sandwiches and an apple. Marin shook her head and took out a sandwich. She threw it to Bella, but Edward caught it before it could fall to the floor. Marin took out one of her own and bit into it. She looked around the room at the Cullens, all having the expression on confusion and anger on their faces. Confusion because of the predicament they were trust into, and anger because of Carlisle. His thrashing calmed down and he was holding his head in pain. He opened his eyes and tried to get up. To show that he was okay, he released his head.
“You should sit down,” Esme said worried. Carlisle though, was stubborn.
“I’m fine. It’s just a small discomfort,” Carlisle said through the pain. It wasn’t that much anyway, he thought. It would go away in time.
“No, you’re not fine,” Marin objected. “You can only get better if you sit down and rest,” she said, preparing to use force. Even though she was human, she had some vampire qualities. She was stronger and faster then most humans, and she wasn’t scared to fight.
With a sigh, Carlisle sat down and closed his eyes. He immediately felt better. He could feel some of the pain retreating.
“That’s better,” Marin said. She walked over to a vacant chair and sat down. She looked at every face in the room. “Now we have to figure out what to do next,” Marin said authoritatively. She was always unsure of what to do in this stage of the situation. She only knew that her job was to inform and protect the vampires being hunted, but she didn’t have a clue of what to do. In the past she ‘helped’ at least five vampires families, but she wasn’t always successful. When ever she failed, the only option she would have is to get out of town as soon as possible. It always broke her heart to see one of the vampires she failed in that evil coven.
“What can we do?” Alice asked.
“I say that we should fight them,” Emmett said. Marin sighed, it was going to be a long night.
“If we resist long enough, they would give up and go to the next family they want, but…lately, they have been taking more violent actions,” Marin said, a small tear running down her cheek at the memory of Nichol. “I honestly have no idea what to do now,” Marin sad truthfully. She was beginning to loose hope.
“How did you fight them in the past?” Jasper asked. Marin placed her head in her hands.
“Well, we would usually fight them and destroy them, but now their numbers have risen so that would be difficult,” Marin said with lost hope.
“Then let’s fight them! How many are there?” Emmett asked persistently.
“At least ten for each family. They split up some times to get to more vampires,” Marin said. It was seven able vampires against ten. Not to mention a human that they would have to look after. Marin rubbed her temples in frustration.
“How good at fighting are you?” Emmett asked curious.
“I can easily beat up a human, but up against a vampire I wouldn’t have a chance,” Marin said a little disappointed. “If only we had more vampires on our side…” she trailed off thinking to herself. Bella’s head sprang up.
“I know some people who would help us,” Bella said quickly. Edward seemed to know the train of thought she was in.
“I don’t think they would help us, Bella,” Edward whispered in her ear.
“Of course they would! As soon as they find out it includes fighting vampires, then they would surely help!” Bella said excited, partly because she might see Jacob again.
“Do you mind telling me what you are talking about?” Marin asked frustrated.
“The Quileute werewolves,” Bella said before Edward could stop her. Marin’s face lit up.
“How many are there?” she asked excited.
“Five, maybe six now,” Bella said. Marin smiled and sat up.
“I’m going to go meet with them, but I’ll need one of you to come with me,” Marin said. If she went alone, she most probably wouldn’t come back. Not one hand except for Bella’s went in the air. “I need a vampire to come with me,” Marin said. Bella sighed and leaned back in the couch. She knew that she needed the werewolves’ help, but she needed the right vampire to come with her. One that won’t pick a fight…not Rosalie or Emmett. No personal grudges…not Edward. That left Jasper, Esme, Alice, not Carlisle because of his state. To her, Jasper seemed like the most useful. He was calm and could calm down the werewolves if trouble started. “Jasper is coming with me,” Marin said, her voice definite. Jasper grumbled.
“Why me?” he asked, even though he knew the answer.
“Just come,” Marin ordered. Jasper sighed and stood up. He kissed Alice goodbye and followed Marin out the door and into the car. All the time he could feel eyes prying into him, but he tried to ignore it. He kept his eyes on the floor of the car until Marin needed directions. “Where are these werewolves anyway?” Marin asked.
“They’re in La Push,” Jasper said. He was very uncomfortable in a car alone with a small girl with evil vampires chasing them. He looked at Marin. “Are you sure that this is safe?” he asked. Even though he had on sunglasses, he didn’t feel…protected.
“No,” she said with out hesitating. Jasper sunk in his seat. Jasper started to fidget.
“Can you drive any faster?” Jasper asked anxiously. She was going fifty miles per hour, and that the landscape moved very slowly for Jasper.
“Unless you want me to crash into a tree, I’m not going any faster,” Marin said calmly.
“Then let me drive,” Jasper said quickly.
“No,” Marin said. Jasper grumbled again and looked out the window. He realized that that was a mistake because he saw a pair of red eyes boring into his. He turned his head away quickly.
“Marin,” Jasper said a little frightened. “I really think that you should hurry up,” he said quickly.
“Why?” she asked. They then felt the car lurch forward. Smoke filled the car quickly. Marin let go of the steering wheel because of her shock. The car started to steer away from the road. Jasper quickly leaned over Marin and took the wheel. He also shoved Marin’s foot out of the way and pressed on the gas pedal. The car lurched forward and Jasper had to concentrate very hard on the road since it was dark and he was leaning across two seats.
“Unbuckle my seat belt and get in the passengers seat,” Jasper ordered. In a less threatening situation, Marin would have protested, but she did what he was told and Jasper moved over into the drivers seat. He then pressed on the gas pedal harder and navigated the small road perfectly. With in minutes, they arrived at La Push and weren’t greeted in the most friendly of ways.
