She is the most powerful vampire in the world, owning the powers to stop time, control all four elements. burn people from the soul out until they are just a pile of ash, which is 10 times more painful than the transformation into a vampire, the ability to turn human, a physical and mental shield, and being able to talk to the members of the Savior and the Ones inside her head.

I opened my eyes, deciding I couldn't bear the smell of wet dog anymore. Jacob's arm would now be suffocating me if I were a human. I looked around and saw that Edward wasn't in the tent. I listened for any noise outside, and discovered he was with Seth, talking about the fight today.

Today. Sigh. Time had fled by. We'd been busy lately. After the talk Edward and I had about me being in the clearing, things seemed to go by fast. They had a 'practice fight' again, preparing for the fight with the newborns. Edward proposed to me and I said yes, Daddy is going to kill me when he finds out he wasn't able to walk me down the aisle. Alice bribed me into letting her set up the wedding. I planted a trail to confuse the newborns with my scent. My human toes almost fell off from cold weather. I slept with a werewolf in a sleeping bag to use as a heater. I'd listened to the most intense talk between a vampire and werewolf about a teenage human girl ever. Oh yeah, and I made a deal with Edward on the controversy of me making love with him. It was some busy days.

While I was thinking about my life going in fast forward motion these days, Edward sauntered in, and seeing as I was awake, immediately smiled at me. "How did you sleep?" He whispered, glancing at Jake.

I glanced at him too, and then started scooting out of the sleeping bag, careful not to wake him up. Once I was out, I trailed over to Edward, and he put his arms around me.

"I slept pretty well. Although, I had the strangest dream…" I didn't finish the sentence, leaving him curious.

"How so?" he questioned. "Well, it was about you and Jake, and you had this… weird talk." I answered with a confused tone in my voice. He stiffened for one-eighth of a second, if I would have been human I wouldn't have noticed, but then relaxed and answered in a very calm and smooth voice, "Hmm. Well, I'm sure it was nothing to ponder on, Love." I should have expected a perfect answer. "Yes, I suppose…" I said wistfully, and I heard Tina giggle in my head, amused of my teasing. I smiled at her reaction, then asked Edward, "Is it any warmer out there?" He responded with just a, "Yes."

I crooked my eyebrow at him, questioning his short reply. He sighed, smiling at my raised eyebrow, and kissed my forehead. "I'm a bit anxious about being away from you today." Oh. That made sense. I felt the same way. "Me too." I sighed, "But you said it would be easy, right? That no one will get hurt?" My voice was tinted with worry. "Of course." He said immediately. "But that doesn't stop me from worrying about you."

"I'll worry about you, too." I said quietly, looking into his beautiful gold eyes. He laughed at that, throwing his head back and all. When he looked down at me he saw my intense glare that was fixed on him. He gave me his crooked smile, causing my fake heart to stutter. "Love, you won't need to worry about me. No one will get hurt, you said so yourself." He gave me an amused look, and I continued to glare at him.

He was about to assure me more, but at that moment I heard Jake starting to wake. I took my time turning around to look at him, keeping up the human charade.

He stood up and stretched out his arms. Well, to the best of his ability, due to the fact that he was more than 6 feet and was in a small tent. He glanced at Edward, then fixed his attention on me and smiled.

"How did you sleep?" he said with a smirk. I muttered a "fine", and then mistakenly asked him the same thing. The smirk on his face grew more pronounced. "Oh, I slept wonderful, actually." pointedly looking at Edward when saying this. I felt Edward's chest rumble with an unspoken threat, and I elbowed him, most likely giving myself a bruise.

But Jacob had already taken the hint. The smirk dropped from his face and he looked back to me, saying "I should probably go. I need to talk to Sam anyway." He brushed past us, climbing out of the tent. I realized that this was going to be the last time I saw him before he had to face blood-crazed newborns.

I reached out to him, my hand brushing against his arm. "Jake, wait." I said urgently. He stopped and turned to look at me. I stared at him, and then finally said, "Be careful. And come back." He grinned at me, and then remarked "Sure, Bells." He turned around and loped out of the tent, running into the cover of the trees. I glanced at the gangly wolf who was sitting far off to the right of the tent, watching Jake as well. Sighing, I poked my head back into the tent and zipped it up.

Once pleased with the dang stubborn zipper that had refused to come up smoothly, I was met with a concerned looking Edward. I immediately knew why he was worried, and said to him, "I suppose you should be leaving soon as well, huh?" He looked at me carefully, and then replied. "Yes, I suppose I should." I looked away, not wanting him to see the worry plainly written all over my face, but he had none of it and put his fingers under my chin, turning my head towards him once again.

Before I could look at his brilliant face, his lips were pressing hard against mine, making all of my worry melt away, as well as making me melt against his cold, hard chest. When he pulled away for me to breathe, his lips trailed down my neck, leaving a trail of kisses. "I love you so much, Bella." He mumbled against my neck. "I love you, too." I answered breathlessly.

All of a sudden, he abruptly stopped kissing my neck. His head turned sharply to the right, and then said, "They're coming. I have to go now. Seth will take care of you." He glanced down at me. "Or should I say, make sure you resist your urge to come take care of us." I grinned at him.

"Be careful." I demanded from him. "I will." He responded immediately. He quickly gave me another kiss, and then he was gone, leaving the zipper to the tent open.

I bit back a sigh, trying not to let my worry show. 'Chill, Bells. They'll be fine.' I heard John say. 'Yeah, I know. I just can't help but worry. I'm not used to not doing anything.' He chuckled at that, and answered me with smugness in his voice, 'I know.' I mentally stuck my tongue out at him, and climbed out of the tent, heading for Seth, who was still sitting in the exact place as before.

"Are they there yet?" I cautiously asked the huge wolf. He didn't respond at all for about 30 seconds, and then bobbed his big head once. I puffed out a breath, and plopped down next to Seth. He looked down at me, and then gave me a wolfish smile. I tentatively smiled back. After despising but putting up with werewolves, or shape shifters, for the past 4 billion years, I was still getting used to being on friendly terms with them.

'Beck?' I said in my head, mentally tapping on her head, asking her to open her mind so we could talk.

She immediately did. 'Yeah?'

'Could you go to the clearing to, you know, make sure everything is going well?' I asked. 'Yeah, sure, Bells.' She said, and popped over to the clearing, staying hidden.

Everyone found Becka's power to be very useful, especially when in an emergency on the other side of the world of where we had to be. We could be in one place, and then if you were in some sort of contact with Becka, you could be in a completely different place. It was very handy in many situations.

She rolled her eyes at my musings, and then scanned the clearing. I was right there with her, my mind following her eyes. I couldn't help noticing Alice, and how she was taking down the most newborns. I chuckled, and everyone else did along with me. I mentally searched the minds that were in the conversation, and was surprised to see the whole crew here. 'Gee, we're just like a good 'ol big family again, aren't we?' I said wryly. They all laughed, but we once again focused our attention on the clearing.

When I was so focused on the clearing, I didn't notice what was really going on around me. At the same time I realized this, I heard Becka say, 'Why isn't red head here?' I looked around the area I was in, and heard a noise coming from the west.

I immediately tensed and sent out a shield through the ground so I could know what was coming. Maybe it was just a deer or something.

Fat chance. I said to myself. A girl can't help but hope. I responded back.

When my shield reached the approaching object, I found that it was more than just one thing. And it was most certainly not a harmless deer.

The objects got closer, and Seth took attention to it as well, standing up and going in front of me. He bared his teeth, a growl rumbling in his chest. But I knew it was hopeless. He was a young werewolf, and they were two vampires.

One vampire came ahead of the second, the other trailing behind, clearly not in demand of the first.

While observing all of this, my mind was in overdrive, searching all of the possibilities to get out of the situation. I never got to find one though, because at that time the figure in front came out of the trees, looking like a predator who finally found what it had been searching for.

Victoria.
