"Are you sure?"
"Yes. Ashley and I are all that's left of our family. We need to stick together, and if I'm human, she'll want to kill me. I need to do this"
"As soon as possible"
"Go talk to Alice; she'll want to get you ready for it. Make sure you're wearing comfortable clothing. We'll also try giving you morphine to see if that helps" I left his study and found Alice already in my room with some clothing choices.
"I think this will do well for your transformation outfit. It's light and won't rub your skin or irritate you. Plus after three days, it won't be sticking to you. And this one for your first hunt I think" the first outfit was a light blue silk dress; the second was some combat trousers and a green silk shirt.
"You are having way too much fun with this," I told her.
"Oh, and don't tell Ashley. It will set back her recovery. If we tell her when you've changed she'll be able to be free when you wake up"
"Okay. So...who's going to do it?"
"I think Edward would be best"
"Why?" I said.
"Well, Edward's girlfriend Bella wants to become a vampire but he doesn't think he has the control. I know he does and if he turns you, it'll prove to himself that he does"
"Are you sure he does?"
"Yes, I'm sure. The only problem is how to persuade him to do it"
"Any ideas?" I asked.
"A few. Wait a sec. EDWARD!" she shouted. Edward appeared at the door.
"Edward, you are going to do me a favour"
"No I'm not"
"You are going to bite Sienna," Alice said as though Edward hadn't spoken.
"Yes Edward. Look, I know Bella wants you to bite her. You want her to be with you. But you need to believe in yourself. I'm doing you a favour" Edward gave her a look, and she smiled pleasantly back.
"If I screw this up, everyone will blame me," he said.
"I know. But you won't"
"Blame myself? Of course I will and I'll blame you for pushing me"
"No, I meant you won't screw this up" Alice said, "I know. I've seen it. And if you don't do it, Ashley will find out and set back her recovery. If you do it, for some reason she'll be free in two days, ready for when Sienna wakes up"
"Okay. I'll do it"
"Great. Sienna, let's get you changed"
"What? We have to do it now?" he said. Alice nodded.
"Wait here" she told him. She led me into her bathroom and thrust the dress on me. I changed quickly, before I could lose my nerve. I came out.
"Okay, should I sit? Or lie down?"
"Lie down" I lay on my bed.
"Edward?" said Alice. Edward took a hesitant step forward.
"Do it Edward. Now" he took a deep breath, bent over me and bit. It took a moment for the venom to course through my veins. Then it did. Burning pain. For my sister.
One week later
"Are you guys sure you'll be okay?"
"We'll be fine. We'll visit. Christmas, thanksgiving, that kind of thing" said Ashley, grinning. She was the first face I'd seen after I was turned. She'd helped me with my first hunt and now we'd decided to go on a bit of a world tour. Seth was coming too and he had already said his goodbyes.
"Are you ready to go?" he asked.
"Yes. Let's go," I said. We turned once more to wave at the Cullen's before we set off. We were going on foot, rucksacks on our backs, and a tent on Seth's.
"We'll see you soon. BYE!" hand in hand; we headed into the forest and our new lives.
