Only one will survive

The Cullen's are gone. Cadyna is alone again but imprisoned. The fate of the vampire, human and werewolf world rests on her shoulders. Only one will survive, they will be the unlucky one. The fourth story in the cross-breed series. Sequel to Cross-Breed, Hunting For Love and Alone (in the order)

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.

2. It's not wise

I looked up. Cadyna was at the top of the stairs. I was chained to the wall, so that I could only move my head. Jane and Alec were locked up in a separate cell. They would be the first to snap. No guards went near them. It had broken Cadyna’s heart when she had removed their gifts. She hated using that gift. Then Demetri had hauled them to their cell, blindfolded. Their shrieks echoed around the dungeon. What made it worse was the fact that I needed blood. And I was sharing the cell with humans. An old guy, Billy or something, who was the father of one of the Cullen’s shape shifting friends. And his friend, a woman. I think she was the mother of two of the wolves. Caius had been trying to capture the wolves but he hadn’t had much luck. He had caught five, which sounded good but they stunk and they were kids. He had caught the younger ones. Cadyna descended the stairs.

“Cadyna. You shouldn’t be here! If you get caught…” it was too horrible to imagine. My adopted daughter who I had cared for, for years, chained up, tortured.

“I couldn’t just leave you down here. I brought you this” she held out a bottle. From the smell wafting from it, it contained blood.

“I can’t drink it. I can’t use my hands” she rolled her eyes and sighed. She held the bottle up to my lips and tipped so the liquid poured into my mouth. Yum. The bottle emptied too quickly. It wasn’t as good as fresh blood but it satiated my thirst. She removed the bottle. Her eyes were black as well.

“You need blood more then me. If you’re going to risk sneaking some you should drink it yourself”

“I’m not going to drink human blood. Caius won’t let me hunt. The only way I can feed is if I have one of his prisoners” she shuddered. Poor Cadyna. She didn’t want to kill but she would have to.

“I’m going to get another bottle for Jane and Alec,” she said.

“Caius will notice if too many bottles go missing. And he’ll know we’ve eaten”

“That’s my problem. Felix, relax. You’ll start to look your age, if you’re not careful,” she teased. Then she heard the noise outside. She panicked and the bottle slipped from her hand and smashed. She hid in a crevice of a wall. Demetri came in with Heidi.

“Hello Felix” he said, casually knocking the pieces of bottle out of sight before Heidi noticed.

“What do you want traitor?” I snarled.

“Don’t be like that Felix. We’re survivors; we go for the best route of survival. The jobs the same, just a different boss. I came to see if there was any chance you’d reconsider”

“I’d rather die. A while ago, I might have been foolish enough to agree. But not anymore” I growled at him.

“Stop wasting your time Demetri. C’mon, let’s go. The wolf stink is making me sick,” Heidi complained.

“You go sweetie, I’ll be out in a minute” Heidi left and shut the door.

“Okay, you can come out now”

****Cadyna’s point of view****

I emerged from my hiding place. Demetri smiled when he saw me. What I wouldn’t give to punch him in the face. I would normally, but I was well aware of the fact that I owed him. And I wasn’t happy about it.

“Well, well, well, what is a beautiful young servant like you doing in a dark and forbidden place like this?” I stuck my chin out defiantly. He walked over to me.

“May I remind you that you are not allowed in here half-breed. So I’ll ask you again, why are you here?”

“I’m allowed in here. Caius said I was”

“He said you were allowed in here if you intended to feed. And that you had to tell one of us”

“I’m in here. There, I’ve told you. Can I go now?” he shoved me against the wall.

“You should watch your mouth. It’s not wise to antagonize me, especially when I’m trying to be nice. Next time I won’t cover for you. You owe me” he let me go. He was looking at my throat and I was suddenly annoyed about the fact that I had blood in my veins. He smiled again as he saw that I had grasped what he meant.

“It’s not wise at all”
