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.

Over the next week, my condition deteriorated rapidly. I discovered that it took three hours for my blood to replace the lost blood. Unfortunately, Demetri worked this out too. That meant I ended up losing my blood each night. He would rip open the old wound and create a new one each night. I didn’t have much time to recover, as I still had to serve Caius, clean and do other jobs for Heidi and Demetri. That added in with the fact I hadn’t hunted in ages and I still refused to drink human blood, I had a pretty big problem. But my break finally came. I had no idea what day it was but I was just about to get up when my door opened and Demetri came in.

“What?” I said, covering my head with a pillow. Rude, I know, but I really didn’t want to look at him, especially not in the mood I was in.

“Well, I was bringing good news. Caius is going out on business and I’m in charge”

“Fantastic” I growled sarcastically, pulling the pillow tighter over my head. I had such a pounding headache.

“Well I can see that you’re in a bad way”

“You think?”

“And since Caius is away, I’m going to let you go hunting” he said. I shot up, propelling the pillow across the room.

“Did you just say you’re going to let me hunt? As in animals?”

“Yes” he said. Wow. I knew that he was only doing it so he could drink my blood for longer but I was relieved to be able to get some blood in my system. Even though every time he drained my blood, I wished I could die, I knew I didn’t really want to die. I wanted to see Alec again, even though I didn’t know why.

“When can I go?” I asked. He smiled.

“Now you’re enthusiastic,” he said.

“I’m starving,” I said. He nodded.

“Me too” he said. I growled.

“I have jobs to do. Goodbye sir” I said, getting up and going into my bathroom. I waited until I heard him leave before getting dressed.

An hour later, I was finally allowed to leave. I headed over the Volterra walls and into the nearby woods. I stripped and phased. I sniffed out some deer and started to hunt. I couldn’t run as fast as before. I had never gone this long without blood before. I tried to catch a stag but it managed to outrun me. I groaned. I needed blood! Urgently! I heard a heartbeat somewhere beneath me so I started to dig until I hit a warren and caught some rabbits. I caught two but they didn’t fill me up very much, just dulled the pain in my head a bit.

Hey! Is anyone out there? The sudden noise made me stumble and fall to the ground.

Seth? Are you there?

Yeah, hey Quil. Anyone new out there?

I found Embry. Has Sam found anyone new?

No. he’s got Paul still and Jared is further up north with Kim. They don’t seem to have heard my call. I howled the moment you came on. If they heard, one of them would have phased.

I know. We can tell them later. I wish I was back home I miss Clare.

Oh well, why did you call anyway?

I’ve just found out something new! Something fantastic!

What? Tell me!

The Cullen’s are alive!
