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.


14. Getting you out

Rating 4/5   Word Count 803   Review this Chapter

Alec and I left for Italy. We had absolutely no idea how we were going to break into Volterra, find the wolves, release them and get back out again.

“You could tell Demetri that you had heard the Cullen’s were alive but you saw them dead and you felt so upset you came back”

“Do you think he’ll believe that?” I asked.

“Maybe not. But it’s our best shot” he said.

“I just hope it works. But I warn you, if he believes it, he will probably end up drinking some of my blood. I won’t be a hundred percent. But the real problem isn’t getting in. it’s getting out again…wait a sec! I just had a very dangerous idea”

“What?”

“Wait and see, but it’s going to involve me drinking human blood”

“That’s not a problem. Carlisle gave some packaged stuff to me. Why do you need to?”

“If I’m really distraught I wouldn’t care about humans. I’d have drunk human blood and the proof is in the eyes. I can get out by going hunting again. But I have no idea how to get the wolves out”

“That won’t be a problem. You can just make everyone forget that they saw you free them until you leave”

We landed in Italy and went to Volterra.

“Stay out of sight. If they see you they’ll know we’re up to something,” I told Alec. He vanished from my side. I didn’t know exactly how I was going to get back in. I drank the sachet of blood and I could actually feel my eyes changing colour. I stood in an alley, away from prying eyes. I didn’t have long to wait.

“Cadyna”

“Demetri” I recognized the voice without turning around.

“You came back”

“I overheard someone say the Cullen’s were alive. I went to find them but they were dead. I came back because I have nowhere else. I don’t care what happens to me” I turned and my hood fell, revealing my crimson eyes.

“You truly have given up, haven’t you? Well I suppose you could come back. Let’s see how willing you really are,” he offered me his hand and I took it. He led me through the shadows and back to the building.

“What will Caius say?” I asked. He laughed.

“Nothing. Tonight, Caius is to be killed, and you will help me”

“What?”

“I knew I couldn’t defeat Marcus and Aro so I helped Caius instead. Now it’s easy enough for me to kill him,” he said.

“I want you to put this into his blood” he handed me a small capsule.

“It will dissolve and kill him. Then I can take control of his army” stupid naive Demetri. Pouring his information into me. He led me back to his room. I knew what he intended to do and I put my neck to the side. He trailed his icy fingers along the pale scars. I expected him to open up all the old ones before choosing a new place to bite. Then he bit me. I gasped in shock. I struggled to stay conscious for as long as I could. I fought against the reaching darkness and won. I felt him remove his mouth from my neck.

“Go to the wine cellar. Place the capsule in the jug. Then go to the main hall and serve it” I walked down the stone steps to the basement. I picked up a jug, a bottle of blood and left. I was going to kill in cold blood.

Get used to it Cadyna. You have to kill to live, remember. Kill or be killed! I dropped the capsule into the jug and went up the stairs. I placed the jug on the table and left. It all worked out. I waited until Demetri had entered the room and gestured for me to leave. Then I walked slowly down the corridor and reached the dungeon steps. I ran down and into the room.

“Cadyna” gasped Felix.

“I’m going to get you out Felix,” I whispered. I went over to Sue first. She was asleep. I unchained her and she fell to the floor. I felt for her pulse.

“She’s dead” I moved to Billy. He had no wheelchair and was seated in the corner.

“No. Leave me. I’ll only slow you down. Besides, when you release him, he’ll attack. He needs blood. I don’t care. I’m old. Sue, Charlie, Harry. Everyone I knew is dead”

“Jacob” I uttered the single word.

“Jacob will be fine. You need fighters, not old men like me” I nodded.

“I’m not going to survive much longer anyway. Take that lot, make sure they get out” I unchained the wolves.

“Shh. Wait until I tell you to follow. And don’t phase!” I ordered. The last thing I needed was five gigantic wolves following me. I turned to Felix. I unchained him. He stood up and stretched.

“Cadyna. I just want you to know, I’m sorry. Really sorry”

“Sorry for what?”

“This”
