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.

I set off immediately. My rabbits had mildly strengthened me but my throat burned. I headed as far away from the wall as possible. I had two reasons for doing this. One to avoid the vampires. The other to avoid the humans. I didn’t have much restraint at the moment; all it would take was an unlucky person in the wrong place at the wrong time. Demetri had given me an hour to hunt. I had used up about twenty minutes. I was going to stay as a wolf and hunt later. I had to use my time to get as far away as possible before he sent out a search party. I had tied my clothes to my ankle, neatly so I could use them when I phased. I ran through the woods.

I’m going to tell Embry Quil said before his mind vanished.

I’m going to howl. Sam needs to know. If he hears, he’ll phase or send someone. I couldn’t hear him howl, obviously, but I could kind of sense it.

I’m here Seth, what is it?

Hey Sam. We’ve got news. Quil found Embry and they think the Cullen’s are alive. But that’s not all. We know where Collin, Brady, Ryan, Lewis and Nathan are. They’re in Italy. They were kidnapped by that vampire who’s trying to take over. The one who ordered the Cullen’s death.

How do you know this? I could feel his mind searching Seth’s for the source of the information.

I told him I introduced myself into the conversation.

Who are you?

You’ve met me before. I’m Cadyna, half shape shifters, half vampire. I’m in Italy, being held prisoner. I was allowed to hunt once. Demetri assumed I wouldn’t run away as the Cullen’s were supposed to be dead. That’s the only reason I’m allowed.

So, you’ve seen us? Sam asked.

Yes. And Billy and Sue. They’re alive, or at least they were. Now I’m not there, I can’t guarantee their safety. I’m sorry to put them at risk but if the Cullen’s are alive, I have to find them.

I understand. We’ll keep an eye out for vampires around here and report back. I picked up my pace. I was going back; I was going to find the Cullen’s.

How I survived the plane journey, I will never know. I wanted to murder every human on board. I think it mainly involved me holding my breath for the entire journey. I eventually reached Alaska. Then came my dilemma. I had no idea where in Alaska they would be. I phased as soon as I could.

Seth? Quil? Anyone there? I need to know where the scent trail is, the one that Quil found?

I’m here! I’m Embry. Quil’s sleeping but I know where the trail was. Here it is. He sent me the place he had smelt the trail. I had a hunch.

Does this mean, you’re nearby?

No. we were just trailing, looking for wolves.

What happened to the wolves? Then I saw it.

I was standing on the La Push beach. I realized, I wasn’t in this vision. It was the past and I couldn’t be seen. There was a cluster of tall boys and a girl.

“I think we have to assume that Jacob is gone. Leah, you need to assume the Alpha position. Who’s your second?”

“I’m not picking a second. All my pack is equal,” said the Leah. Then there was a scream. A swarm of black cloaked figures appeared.

“RUN!” yelled Sam.

“Can’t we fight?”

“NO! THERE’S TOO MANY! RUN LEAH!” he yelled again. I noticed that the ones with big feet seemed more panicked. Sam, Paul and Jared were together. There was fire everywhere and snarling. Gunshot. I saw Collin fall and a chain placed around his neck and he was dragged off. Seth was in human form, so was Leah. I spotted Demetri aiming with a crossbow. I yelled out to Seth, even though I knew he couldn’t hear me.

“SETH!” shouted Leah. She ran (she was incredibly fast) and did something I’d only ever seen done in movies. She leapt across the air, right into the path of Demetri’s arrow. It hit her in the chest and she plummeted.

“LEAH!” Seth yelled as his sister screamed in pain. He started to run to her side.

“NO! SETH! GO!” yelled Sam. He had phased back and was gesturing for Seth to run to him. Then the vampire’s cut off his view.

“Do it! Go Seth! Stay alive!” Leah yelled. Seth ran, his eyes filled with tears. Leah lay bleeding.
