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.

The battled started almost immediately. The werewolves moved first; hungry and full of blood lust they charged towards the enemy. The shape shifters followed and the vampire dogs started to run towards us. Then the first blow was made. A werewolf leapt on one of the dogs and ripped it in half. It gave a yelp as it fell to the ground. The rest of its group swarmed on the werewolf who struggled to throw them off. There was growling and then, suddenly, the dogs let go. They turned towards us again and advanced once more. All that was left of the wolf was bones. Another werewolf bellowed in rage at the sight of his dead comrade, which surprised me. Werewolves were supposed to be pure animal when turned. But then...even animals had feelings. The enraged creatures leapt at the vamp dogs. The werewolves had size and strength on their side but the dogs had vampire speed and dodged their attacks.
How can we defeat them? I thought. It looked like everyone else was thinking it too. These creatures were insane, being infected with vampire venom had made them go mad. They would kill everything in their path. I could only assume that Demetri and his troops had something on them that stopped the dogs attacking them, like us with the silver to stop the werewolves. Just then, a few rays of sunlight spilt onto the sand and hit one of the dogs in the eye. He howled in pain and yelped, snarling at the sun. When he next looked round, I saw that his left eye was a charred, scabby red patch. I barked, gazing at Jasper. He nodded; darting over to the dog, he stabbed it in the other eye, blinding it. It went crazy. It leapt around, snarling and biting everything that got in its way. I didn't know if the rest of their body was affected by the sunlight but I was pretty sure that in a few minutes, they would all be blind. Or dead. I leapt on a vampire and ripped him apart.

SAM! I thought. I can't burn them! They'll reassemble!

Go to the forest edge! We hid some lighters there!

I ran to the forest edge and spotted the silver lighter. I wrapped my tail around it and tried to carry it back. It was no use. I turned one of my arms back to human so I could carry it. It was awkward running on three legs in a body designed for four. But I ran to my victim who was still struggling to reassemble himself. I flicked the lighter and the flame ignited on him. As he burnt, his arms snaked around my chest. He squeezed and I heard my ribs crack. I tore off his arm and rolled on the sand to extinguish the flames. I winced as my ribs ached, as they tried to fix themselves. I needed to move, to fight! I struggled to my feet and snarled at a vampire. It was unwise to remain in wolf form. If my bones reset in the wrong place I would be in a lot of pain later but I needed to fight. I spotted Jasper. His power gave him both an advantage and a disadvantage. He could sense which vampires were scared and likely to make mistakes but also he could feel my pain, their pain, everyone's pain as they fought. I could feel my strength waning but I decided I had just enough. I thought of my power as a wind up torch. It needed a lot of winding up to get just a tiny bit of power. I focused all my energy on my power. Then when I felt my power in me, I focused it on Jasper. I would block his power. He was a strong fighter and the disadvantage of the power outweighed the advantages. He was my only proper family I had left.
"Cadyna! NO!" shouted Edward. I ignored him. My energy flowed. I blacked out.

Embry's Point of view

I was half fighting, half-watching Cadyna. I saw her sway, and then fall. I forgot about the battle and ran to her side. I dragged her out of sight, and waited. I would watch her forever if I had too.
