Edward's sharp, venom covered teeth sank into my neck. I sighed with content. It really didn't hurt, just like getting a shot, it felt like a sharp prick. Well, that is, until the fire came. I could slowly feel a burning sensation on the wound start to spread. The fire got more and more intense. I screamed out in pain. "Bella! Are you alright?" Edward's panicked voice seemed so far away. I nodded, biting my lip so I wouldn't scream, but it didn't help. I let out another piercing scream. How could anything feel this painful?!
I could feel the venom spreading down into my torso, burning everything in it's path. Burning, firey torture, nothing in the world could have prepared me for this. I screamed my loudest yet. The fire spread on.
I held Bella in my arms, rocking her back and forth. I felt like a real monster. I had done this to her, I was making her go through unbearable pain. I cried tearless sobs. Bella screamed, writhing in pain. I felt her pain, I was watching the one I loved suffer through the worst pain in the world. And all I could do was watch. I couldn't help her in any way, I couldn't soothe her. She had made this decision, and I couldn't stop her. Outside the sun was setting. Two days to go.
The sun rose on the second day. Bella's screams never ceased to make me flinch, make me wince as if I was the one undergoing the burning pain. I felt so helpless, so pitiful. I could do nothing to help her. All I could do was sit and watch my wife scream as she felt the flames engulf her.
The fire had entirely consumed me now. I didn't know how much longer I could keep this up. My throat hurt from screaming so loud and so often. I didn't care though. The firey pain overshadowed it almost completely. I could feel Edward's arms holding me tightly, and that helped. Knowing that I would be here with him forever made the pain bearable enough.
Our family waited downstairs. I was pacing tensely. Bella's screams almost never ceased. I could only imagine what it was like, since I didn't remember my transformation. I could hear Edward try to comfort her, but his voice was often lost in her screams of pain. Poor girl. I wished there was something I could do, but Carlisle said that we just had to wait it out. I felt so bad for my little sister-in-law. The sun set on the second day. Only one day to go.
I couldn't believe Bella was giving up her mortality just to be with Edward. I would have given anything to become human again, but no, I have to be a stupid, cold, hard vampire. At least my looks were better. That made my existance more bearable. I did feel bad for Bella, but I had been there, done that. I knew what it felt like, and I couldn't say I felt terribly sorry for her. I did feel bad that she had to go through the wretched transformation, but we all did, and we survived. Well, in one way atleast.
The sun rose on the third day. My face flooded with relief. Only one more day and Bella would be done with this transformation, she would be a vampire at last. "Bella, it's almost over! Just a little longer." I said softly to encourage her. I was almost sure she heard, her mouth curved up into a pitiful but beautiful smile, but it disappeared quickly and was replaced by a scream.
The fire was quite literally unbearable. I couldn't stand it. It was getting hotter and stronger every moment. I couldn't stand it anymore. I was sure I would die. My body grew incredibly weak and my screams became more rasped and pitiful until I couldn't scream anymore. Darkness engulfed me, and the fire consumed me entirely. I was sure I had died. "Bella! Bella! Are you awake?" Edward's voice sounded softly in my ear. I was suddenly filled with energy, and my eyes opened.
I was now a vampire.
