I woke up. I was in a large bedroom.

"Yeah! It worked!" said a peppy voice.

"What worked?" I groaned.

"Sucking the venom out of you before you became a vampire! It worked again!" I looked up to see that small vampire from the Cullen family. Alice? Yes, Alice.

"What happened?"

"You got attacked by a vampire. It bit you and was draining you dry when we arrived. I'd been tracking for your sister since she disappeared from La Push. The others managed to prize her off you and Carlisle sucked the venom out. You stayed human"

"And Ashley?"

"Ashley...she's in the basement. You can see her after breakfast"

"I don't want breakfast. I want to see my sisters"

"Willow's here too!" she said, obviously trying to distract me "She was brought here by the La Push werewolves. So the whole family is back together"

"Jasmine" I said.

"Yes, she's buried. We were going to wait for you guys but she was starting to smell. She's in the back garden. If we could have saved her, we would, but it was too late by the time we got to her" I climbed out of the bed.

"I'll take you to see Willow but I think Carlisle will tell you when you can see Ashley...she's a bit...unstable" I didn't ask what unstable meant. I knew, I'd seen it. She took me to another bedroom where Willow was lying, fast asleep. Her face was deeply scared. Not allowing me to linger there in case I woke her, Alice led me downstairs. There was an unfamiliar boy sitting in the kitchen.

"This is Seth. He's here because...well, he kind of formed a relationship with Ashley. He imprinted"

"Do I want to know what imprinted means?"

"It's nothing bad. It just means Ashley is the entire focus of my existence"

"Even if she is a blood-crazed, lunatic," muttered another voice.

"Paul, shut up!" Alice barked, "Why are you still here?"

"We have to make sure Seth doesn't do anything stupid. It was my turn"

"Well, your likely to make me do something stupid so
maybe you should leave" said Seth.

"With pleasure" he walked out.

"Can I see Ashley yet?" I asked. I needed to make sure my sister was okay!

"Well...Carlisle isn't here yet..."

"Please Alice! She's my sister! I have to make sure she's okay!" I said, tears streaming down my face.

"Okay" she said, reluctantly. She opened a door that looked like it would hold a cupboard. Instead, a set of skinny steps was revealed. We walked down the dark staircase into a large room. Chained to the wall, was my sister. I cried out and ran forward but Alice stopped me.

"NO! She's not the same!" Ashley raised her head.

"Sienna..." she said. She sounded so sad; I couldn't help but take a step forward.

"Sienna...help me. Please" I took another step. Alice grabbed me and pulled me back.

"Listen Sienna, she is not the same! If you get too close, she will kill you! This is why Carlisle should have told you when to go down! Ashley has the ability to make people do what she wants! It won't work on vampires at this moment, she's not strong enough but if she feeds, she can control all! Now, stay back!" Ashley roared. That shattered all illusions. I felt fresh tears streaming down my face.
"Oh Ashley. What have you become?" she didn't reply, just kept roaring and snarling. They echoed through the room and shattered my heart. She writhed, pulling at her chains. Her face contorted into feral shapes, baring her teeth as she struggled like mad to reach me. Oh Ashley. Why?
