A Dark Adaptation of Breaking Dawn
The new moon illuminating the ink blue night, marks the dawn of a new world where chaos is about to be unleashed once again between the wolves and the vampires. Under layers of stone and concrete, a King paces back and forth in his room, shaken by the probability of a fallen kingdom. Men begin to shape into wolves in a nearby distance, mouths watering for flesh. And somewhere in the depths of a Romanian forest, a pair of chocolate brown eyes shoot wide open with a sudden gasp, announcing the beginning of a new life.

Weeks of sleeping in a bag under a nylon makeshift, have finally come to an end. The packs are gathered and ready to go. Sam was making the final preparations, giving his ‘pump up' speech. For the first time since I've been here, I took a really good look at the army around us. The numbers weren't epic, but they were enough to dismember the bloodsuckers' army.
"What's up, man?" Aren't you getting ready?" asked Seth as he approached me, eyeing my clothes. He wore only a pair of knit shorts, to make it easier to morph in when the time came.
"Looks like you'll be heading into this one without me" I said, hooking my arm into my backpack.
"What do you mean? You're not gonna fight?" he blinked, surprised.
He frowned with his arms outstretched.
"Got some things I need to do."
I could tell he wasn't going to give up easily.
"Sooo... you sleep for weeks on a hard floor, getting eaten by mosquitoes, not to mention having to share a tent with Jared, of all people - and it was all for nothing? To come to realize - ‘oh crap, I forgot to do something!'
"Yup, that's pretty much it" I said.
"It makes no sense" he said, defeated.
"Seth, since when has anything in my life made any sense? I'm a fucking wolf for crying out loud."
"Eh... so am I" he said with a warning.
I shook my head grinning and grabbed a water bottle before turning and stepping out of the tent. The sun had already set, leaving only a dim glow in the horizon. In just a few more minutes, a swarm of wolves will flow down the forests' slope and into the Volturi dungeons. I was passing up the opportunity. I've waited for too long without any news of Bella or the Cullens. I was beginning to get a really bad feeling that something was wrong. But with all of them scrambled around the globe - I didn't know where to start looking. I figured I was closest to Romania anyway, so I was off to a start.
As I was about to take off, I heard someone calling my name. I turned around, scanning the woods when I saw in the distance, the bloodsucker and his sister walking towards me. For a split second, I felt my heart rise... and then fall again. Bella was not with them. Alice hurried towards me while Edward walked briskly behind her by just a few feet. He looked serious, almost as if were pissed off at something.
"Jacob," said Alice when she finally reached me. "They've taken the others. They're in there as we speak. I need you to let Sam know. They are not there to fight with the Volturi. They're being held captive."
"Where is she?" I asked, ignoring her request.
Her eyes shot towards Edward. Neither one said anything.
"Where is she?" I repeated, my voice rising.
"She's not with us. She chose to stay behind" said Edward bleakly.
"Chose to stay behind?" I echoed, confused as fuck.
"Jacob, we need to speak to Sam right away, before it's too late" said Alice, and again ignored her.
"What the fuck do you mean ‘she chose to stay behind'? Where is she?"
"You heard me for I did not stutter and it doesn't matter where she is for she is no longer coming back" he said between clenched teeth and a squared jaw. That only ignited my temper.
I dropped my backpack and grabbed him by his collar, picking him up and slamming his back against a tree. I was surprised at the lack of resistance, though he did not seem scared at all.
"What the fuck do you mean ‘she's not coming back!" I yelled. "Why isn't she with you?"
He stared at me, or rather, through me. His eyes were far and I was beginning to think he was fucking delusional or some shit. My patience, what little I had left, was quickly running out. I banged him harder against the tree, its trunk splitting in some places.
"You better fucking tell me where she is or I promise I'll fucking kill you" I seethed.
His reaction took me by surprise.
"DO IT! GO AHEAD AND DO IT" he yelled and I got the notion that he wasn't challenging me. It was almost as if he wanted me to kill him.
"KILL ME! Kill me now or you may never have the chance again."
I flinched as someone put their hand on my shoulder. It was Alice.
"Jacob. Bella is not coming back. She chose to stay with him, with Gabriel. She's... having his child."
My mind went numb even though I kept an iron grip on him. I stared at Alice wide-eyed with shock, and then at Edward. He was trembling in rage, tears pooling his eyes as he glared at me.
"Do it now, Jacob" he seethed.
Bella? Pregnant? By a vampire? It didn't make sense. There goes another one for Seth's list. How could it be? How could she have fallen that quickly? I suppose I understood why Edward wanted to die. He loved her and she turned him away - just as she did me. I could've let him go, let him feel what I felt, let him know how bad it was to lose her - but then again, because of this sorry ass son of a bitch, she's gone. This was his entire fucking fault. If only he wouldn't have shown up that night at the party, then none of this would've happened.
I tightened my fist against him and let my body let go, welcoming the animal in me. I could feel my boots tighten as my feet tore through them, my pants stretching and tearing, my belt snapping, my chest ripping my shirt apart and my teeth sliding against my gums as they elongated to razor sharp fangs. My mouth was watering for vengeance.
From the corner of my eye, I saw Alice take a step forward, her fangs bared, but something caught her eye and she stopped. From my left came a small grey wolf, charging directly at me at an incredible speed. It knocked me back. Edward fell to the ground as Alice rushed to his side. Of all the fucked up things I've seen happen, I would have never expected Leah, of all people, to come between me and a vampire. She snarled at me viciously, guarding the two bloodsuckers behind her.
I felt myself change back to my human form and only when I was standing on my two feet did Leah do the same. She morphed back so eloquently, as she pulled a garment she had tied around her thigh and expertly wrapped it around her naked body, never revealing her parts. She stared at me hard and cold.
"What has gotten into you?" I raged.
"Fuck off, Jacob" she shot back. "You want to kill some vamps? Then I suggest you get your ass down there and get to work."
"Who the fuck do you think you are?" I shouted back at her furiously.
"I'm the bitch who's not gonna take your bullshit. You're not going to kill him, you hear?"
"Leah, please" said Alice, "I need to talk to Sam. My family is in there."
"Why would you want Sam, when he's the one in charge" she said pointing her finger at me. Alice turned to stare at me, her eyes wide in surprise.
"Jacob's always been the Alpha, it's just that his punk ass doesn't want to stand up to Sam."
"Fuck you , Leah."
"How you wish you could."
"Jacob, you have to stop them" said Alice. "We need to get them out of there."
"I don't need to do shit for any of you! Because of you fucking freaks is why we're all here and Bella's gone."
There was no warning, no flash, and no sound - nothing. One minute, or second, she was standing next to the tree and the next she was half an inch from my face.
"Listen," she hissed, "I'm the only one who knows how to find her, so... don't... fuck... with... me."
