Chapter 2-Fire

I felt the fire like a hot knife cutting my skin away from my bones.

It was like burning your finger on a mach except infinitely worse and covering my body.

It was like my skin was evaporating and my bones had become ashes.

I wanted to scream out and start begging to die but I knew that it would do no good and no one could possibly hear me so I stayed silent thinking of Carlisle and his silence during his transformation from mortal to immortal.

Suddenly, thought I would have sworn it was impossible, it felt almost as if the painful fire was getting worse.

I felt like I was a charred, black body that wouldn’t even be able to be identified using dental records.

I heard everything around me and new that I could scream if I wanted to because there was no one around to hear me. But I didn’t because, when I tried, it did not good.

I could also hear my heart thumping away at a furious pace, like it was in a race against the fire that was burning me at the stake.

I could smell everything around me and I smelt no fire so, in the back of my mind, I knew I was becoming a vampire. What I had always wanted in the worst way possible.

I could also feel with a new strength. I could feel the fabric of my clothes and the ground around me. But the thing that really was important to me was the two small shapes I felt near me. Helios and Luna, my babies. They were the reason I went through this. There had to be someone to care for them while they were so vulnerable.

I suddenly felt the fire start to move away from my fingers and toes and towards my heart which grew hotter and hotter. That made me hope that the change was almost over with and I was at the end of my third day.

My hands and feet were free from the pain but I could feel no relief when my heart hurt so much. My heart went faster and faster, I could hear it and even count the heart beats with only part of my mind. 1,257...1,258…1,259. All less than half a second apart. I should be dead with my heart beating so fast – and I would be when my heart finally stopped.

I realized that both my arms and legs were now free of the burning fire and the rest of my body was cooling as well. But my heart felt like a volcano that was about to blow, beating faster and faster as the molten lava burned hotter and hotter. It was a race. My heart against the burning lava. They were both going to loose. Finally when my heart beating was one sustained note it suddenly stopped. And the pain disappeared. I opened my eyes and the first thing I saw was the two small babies curled at my side.
