I sighed as I watched silently from my position. I was perched on top of a tree waiting for the newborns to come out. It was late in the afternoon and the sun was just beginning to set. I’ve got about an hour before they start their killing spree. I’ll let them have some fun first then I’ll have my own fun. I smirked at that thought. Ha, that was an order this time.

I waited to see if she was going to say that she was kidding but she was serious.

“Five newborns?” I asked just to make sure I heard her correctly. Of course, a vampire’s hearing was perfect but five newborns at the same time and in the same location? I didn’t expect that. In fact, it totally caught me off guard. Even Riley was a bit hesitant at that.

“Isn’t that a bit too much Victoria ?” he asked uneasily.

I watched the two of them share a silent conversation. Riley’s face was pained and Victoria was giving him a you-should-know-look. Riley looked away then nodded. I looked down so that Victoria wouldn’t catch me watch the two of them exchange looks.

“I’m sure our dear Bella here could take all of them at the same time, couldn’t you dear?” her tone was sickly. There was something more behind these hunts, of course. Maybe she wants to get rid of me. She’s doing it in a subtle way of course. But it didn’t matter coz I owe them my life. I owe them my life I reminded myself.

“Of course, Victoria . They’ll be easy to get rid of” I said as a matter of fact. I wasn’t sure of what was going to happen to me but I had to put an act that I’m not afraid of anything. That I will do whatever she asks of me because I don’t want them to leave me in the dark.

“See, Riley? She can handle it. She is the strongest vampire I know” Victoria said with the same tone.

Riley smirked at that comment. I gave him a small smile remembering our little conversation a few days ago. Victoria raised an eyebrow at our little exchange but didn’t say anything.

“And to add some fun to it, let them feed first. I’m sure you’d be able to handle that” she huffed.

“Yeah… I’ll have some fun with them” I said putting my act back on again. I can’t let them see through me. I can’t.

I sighed again. I seriously think she’s looking for the best way to kill me. If five newborns aren’t enough to tear me from limb to limb, feeding them before provoking them would most likely be the end of me. I almost lost an arm the last time I killed three newly fed newborns. Who knows what could happen with five? I just hope they don’t go out all together. I shuddered at the thought. I wonder what she’s gonna order next when I live through this.

I heard a shuffle beneath me and I immediately put on a defensive crouch. I looked down to see a squirrel scurrying down the tree. I sighed as I sat down on one of the bigger branch of the tree. I played with the hem of my dress as I waited. The knee length dress was ripped at the bottom and my feet were bare and dirty. I stared at the setting sun as my mind drifted back to the warning that Victoria gave me.

“Wolves? As in werewolves?” I asked. I’ve never seen one before and I’ve no idea of what they’re capable of.

“Yes, that kind of wolves. They tore apart someone I know very well so don’t underestimate them” Victoria said in a warning. Great more things out there to kill me.

“Okay. What else do I have to be aware of?”

“Remember the coven I told you about? Make sure they don’t track you down”

“Okay” I said silently. I wanted to ask why but that was a question that would have her in a fit upon asking the question but she probably sensed it because she gave me an answer.

“I have a job for you regarding them later so I don’t want any of them sensing you. Got it?”

“Yes, Victoria ” I said. I wonder what part they play in her plan.

A muffled scream shook me out of my thoughts and I smelt blood in the air. My throat burned as I got down from the tree so I followed the scent. It led me to a badly lit alley a few miles away from the bustle of the city of Seattle. I continued to follow it and found two newborns on a corner feeding. I let a smirk escape my lips making them aware of my presence. They were both in defensive crouches right away and one of them growled. I stood there with the smirk still on my face.

“Go away! This is our meal! Get your own!” he growled at me again.

I shook my head as I started to walk towards them. I put my hands on my hips and shook my head again.

“Silly newborn. I don’t want your meal”

The girl took a step back then shot me death glare. I smirked.

“What do you want from us then?” she hissed.

I raised an eyebrow at the two of them then crossed my arms across my chest. I pointed at the two of them.

“I want your heads”

I sighed as I watched the fire I created, after tearing apart the newborns into shreds.

“Two down, three to go” I told myself. Oh joy. Finding them was easy. Fighting them on the other hand, while another was pulling at your arm or leg, was another story.

I turned around and walked away from my little bonfire. The night was young and I still had three vampires to hunt down. I left the alley where I found my first two victims and wandered into the dark street. The street lights were burnt out on this area so there were no humans around. I could sense the different scents in the air but none of them was what I was looking for. I continued to walk up the streets where one of the street lights was blinking every other minute. I caught a scent that belonged to a vampire that headed towards the humans so I followed it.

The night breeze blew westward and the smell of blood hit me again. My mouth started to water as the scent continued to taunt me. I followed the scent and it led me to another alley which was just a few blocks away from where the humans were going about their nightly activities. This was going to be a challenge. If they were near humans, it’s going to be hard not to attract any attention. Hmmm…. I climbed one of the abandoned buildings and peered down from the roof top. As I looked down, I saw the three newborns I was looking for. They were luring three different humans into one of the darker alleys.

There were two girls, probably early 20’s and a guy around mid 20’s. How ironic. And of course, their meals were the opposite sex. Good. Go farther down the alley. Far from the humans. Make my job easier. I continued to watch them and they did go further down the alley. A small smile escaped my lips. This won’t be as hard as I thought.

I let them feed first like Victoria said. I heard muffled screams from their victims and it slowly died out. When they were done feeding and was growling at each other, I decided to make them aware of my presence. I jumped from the rooftop of the four story building and landed a few feet in front of them. They quickly turned around and growled at me. The male, I’m assuming to be the leader, was in a defensive crouch in front of the two girls.

“Who are you?” he demanded.

Another smile escaped my lips.

“I don’t think it really matters who I am” I said as I started to circle around them.

“Oh yeah? Then what does?” he asked in a mocking tone.

“Well, I think it matters who I’m going to get rid of first… Should I start with you?” I pointed at him. “Or the girl?” And pointed to the one directly behind him.

He snarled at me the moment I pointed at the shorter girl. He lunged for me and I felt my back hit the brick wall of a building. A sly grin made its way into my face.

“She’s your mate then” I said as a matter of fact. I looked him straight in the eye and he moved forward again to attack me. I was quicker this time and I was at his back in a fraction of a second.

“I guess you’re going first then” I whispered in his ear. He didn’t have enough time to react as I yanked his head off his body. I threw the head onto the farther side of the alley when I felt some kind of force pushing me out of the way. I looked at the taller girl noting that she didn’t even move an inch. The guy’s mate ran towards the head I threw out to retrieve it and probably put it back. I sighed. Great. The girl has some sort of talent. Get rid of her first then.

“Okay, that wasn’t necessary at all. You really shouldn’t have done that” I shook my head then I lunged for her. She was fast and I felt her trying to push me again with the same force. I was quicker than her and I moved rapidly from one side to another making her confused. As she tried to follow my movements, she continued to use her gift on me but I had my shield up so I felt just small pinches of it. When she was at the angle I wanted her to be, I attacked from above and sat on her shoulder. She tried shrugging me off but she wasn’t lucky. I tugged at her head then wrenched the right arm off. Her body fell on the ground and it started to writhe. I lit a match and threw it towards the head I just ripped off. As the fire grew bigger, I threw in the arm and then the rest of the body which I shredded of in just seconds.

As I threw the last body part, I felt someone grab me and throw me against the wall. The wall collapsed behind me as dust blew all over the place.

“What the —“ I looked up to see the guy with his head back on. He still had the furious look on his face.

“Well, it’s nice to see you back in one piece again” I said as I stood up and dusted off my dress.

He growled and was about to pounce at me again. I shook my head at him as I moved. He didn’t learn from his mistake. He knew I was quicker than him. So, I moved again and was about to lunge for his head when I felt someone grab me from behind. The girl pinned me to the ground and snarled at me. The guy smirked.

“You can never pull the same move twice, you know” he said and kicked me on the side. I groaned. I have to admit I didn’t expect that one but I have a lot of tricks under my sleeve. I looked up to see him glaring at me. I looked down at my dress and saw a huge rip on the side. I groaned with irritation this time.

“You’re gonna pay for that” I snarled and kicked the girl on her stomach. I stood up in a swift second.

I pounced on the guy and at the same time I pulled both of his arms off. The guy screamed in pain as his body fell to the ground. The girl grabbed me from behind and tried to yank my arm off. I turned around to face her but was stunned at what I saw. Behind the girl was another vampire. His gold colored eyes looked at me in shock.

“I’ll take care of this one. Take care of the other one” he said after a second had passed.

I turned around and finished tearing the guy apart. I threw his limbs onto the fire and I watched the big burly vampire throw the remains of the girl. When he threw the last body part, he turned around to face me and I was in his arms in a flash.

“Bella” he said. Shock was still evident in his voice.

Make sure they don’t track you down. Victoria’s words filled my head. I stiffened as I remembered what she said. I pushed him away with a force and looked him in the eye.

“Bella… It’s me… Emmett” he said confused. I was confused as well. I didn’t know him. How would I know him? But how come he knows me?

“I… I don’t know you” I didn’t know what to say so I said the truth. I took a step back and looked around. Victoria is going to be furious if she finds out I talked to one of them. I wasn’t supposed to be tracked down at all. I’ve been too careless.

“Please… Don’t follow me. You didn’t see me. You didn’t smell me. You didn’t track me down… Please” I pleaded. I can’t let Victoria know. Different thoughts filled my head. I didn’t know what else to say so I turned around and broke into a run. I ran until I was at the heart of the park I was in earlier. I fell to my knees with my hands on my head

How did he know my name?
