Notes:
I know, i'm so evil. I left everyone on a total cliffie at the end of the last story. But, i think i'm entitled considering that only two people reviewed. they reviewed more then once but still, two people! That really is pathetic! I need more reviews to fuel my creativity. If i don't on this story i will stop on a cliffie and not update any more.

I don’t know how long I lay in the snow bank for. Time had no meaning. After a while, the biting cold of the snow changed to warmth. Hypothermia. But I didn’t care. I couldn’t move, I couldn’t breath. I was lifeless. Then I felt a rhythmic thud on the top of the snow. Someone was walking this way. Then the weight on my intensified. I accidentally cried out. The weight vanished and I became aware of the snow being lifted off me. I must have phased back unintentionally because when they saw me they gasped.

“Oh my god. Poor girl. What happened to her?”

“Is she dead?” asked another voice. I moved my head to try to see my rescuers.

“No, she’s alive. Don’t move child, save your strength” I felt hands picking me up. I groaned in pain. I managed to catch a glimpse of one of them before I surrendered to the pain. A woman with strawberry blonde hair and gold eyes. Then all I saw was blackness.

“When do you think she’ll wake up?”

“I don’t know”

“Jasper calm down! She’ll be fine, stop pacing!” I opened my eyes. The bright lights hurt.

“Oh! She’s awake!” I was in a large white room with a glass wall. I looked up. Two women, one with strawberry blonde hair and one with silvery blonde hair. They both had the same golden eyes as the Cullen’s.

“Keep those two away until she’s had something to eat. She’s parched with thirst”

Something touched my neck and I screamed in pain. I couldn’t tell what voice belonged to who. I struggled to sit up.

“No stay down. When Carlisle arrives he can check you over” I bolted up (regretting it after as my head spun).

“Carlisle’s alive?!”

“Yes” I spotted Jasper in the corner, concern in his eyes.

“Jasper. What happened? How did you survive the explosion? Who else survived? Where are they?” I didn’t even give him a chance to answer one question before I asked the next.

“Rosalie, Nessie, Carlisle and Edward have definitely survived. Emmett, Esme and Jacob, Bella and Alice we have no idea about. Edward escaped because he’s the fastest. Rosalie, Nessie and I survived because we were nearest the door. Rosalie grabbed Nessie and pulled her out. Carlisle isn’t sure how he survived but he did. We think there’s a good chance that Emmett survived; he probably punched a non-burning wall down to escape. Rosalie, Nessie and I came here straight away, to warn Tanya and her family and also to keep Nessie safe. Carlisle and Edward were out searching for the others but they started to head this way this morning. They should be here by nightfall. Then Rosalie and I are going to try searching”

“I’m coming too,” I said determinedly.

“What? No you’re not!”

“Oh, I am! My family too, remember?” As much as you hate to admit it.

“You’re sick, you’d be a liability”

“I just need to hunt. I haven’t had much opportunity”

“Why? What happened to you?” asked the girl with strawberry blonde hair.

“This is Tanya,” Jasper told me quickly.

“Okay. I was blown through the window, so I survived. I was wandering around for a bit but then Demetri found me. He took me back to Italy and Caius made me his slave. The worst bit was I wasn’t allowed to go and hunt. They weren’t afraid of me escaping (I thought you guys were all dead, so I just felt dead inside and not really up to escaping) they just wanted me to dine naturally as they put it. So, they had Billy and Sue from La Push chained up in their dungeon along with some of the werewolves. They told me that if I wanted to feed I would have to feed off them. I refused”

“Is that it?”

“No. I used to take blood down to Felix (he was chained down there as well) but as I got weaker, I stopped to take myself out of temptation. Anyway, one of the times I took him some blood Demetri came in. I hid but he knew I was there. Afterwards he blackmailed me. He told me that he was going to feed off Sue but I told him it would taste disgusting, being a werewolf’s mother and all. So he asked for a sample and I mixed werewolf blood with hers. It was vile and he decided it wasn’t worth consuming. So he had an alternative” I stopped. Three pairs of golden eyes gazed at me, waiting for me to continue. I tilted my head, pushing my hair back, showing the pale-scarred skin on my neck. The other blonde gasped as she realized what it signified.

“I always knew Demetri was sick,” she growled.

“That’s why I seriously need to hunt. I don’t have much blood in my body, mine or anyone else’s. He wanted to carry on draining me so he allowed me one hour to hunt. I went overheard Quil and Seth talking, found out that you might be alive and got the first flight to Alaska. Do not ask how I lasted the flight because I do not know. I just need to hunt and I’ll be fine”

“Fine. But one of us should go with you, in case you faint again” the other blonde girl said.

“I’ll go” Jasper volunteered. I swear my mouth hit the floor.
