<span style='font-family: "Times,";' georgia,="" serif;"="">We talk a little more, mostly about school and that kind of stuff. It’s nice to not be talking about myths, attacks and crazy red headed vampires that wish to have me in shreds.

‘So, do you think you’ll graduate?’ is Jake’s question. I shrug. Finals start next week and I’m anxious to do everything right.
‘I’ll do the best I can, but everything is so distracting lately. It’s difficult to concentrate.’
I frown, ’Like, what?’
Jacob shrugs, ’What distracts you?’

Shit. Difficult question, ’Oh well, my siblings who’ve recently moved here, my cousins just started on FHS,’ I say, debating if I should tell him about my newest ‘cousins’.
‘And Edward and I are…kind of fighting all the time. And my newest nephews of course,’ I start, faking a smile and finding it strange to call my very own sons my nephews. It felt alien to me.

‘Your new nephews? I didn’t know one of your sisters was pregnant…not that I know them actually.’
I raise my eyebrows, ’Bella never told you about them?’
Jake shakes his head, pressing his lips together, ’Not really. She mentioned them yes, but she said she doesn’t really know them herself. Which I think is weird by the way.’
Well he wasn’t exactly far from the truth. It is strange, but Bella only just recently decided to want to hang out with us more.
‘Well, that’s true but, now they’re living here, instead of more than a hundred miles away, we might build a better bond,’ I try, hoping he’ll take it and let that subject go. I don’t want to explain the bloody hybrid details and all that. Besides – if I do I won’t be able to hunt in the area any longer.
‘And no, no one’s been pregnant,’ aside from myself but well, you don’t need to know that ,’My siblings adopt children. Denim, Faith and Alana can’t grow from an infant to a teenager in three years now can they?’ I say sarcastically, while that was just the point.
‘Oh right, I believe Bella told me something like that. So you’ve got new nephews?’

I nod enthusiastically,’ Yes. Raven is four years old and my brother and his wife adopted him. and Blaze is three and adopted by my sister Skye and her husband. They look a lot like each other, but they are brothers after all.’
Jacob nodded slowly, trying to imagine it which I thought was weird.
‘Cool. So you’re playing with toddlers instead of studying huh?’
I giggle and nod, ’Yeah, they keep me busy,’ but not busy enough. I feel guilty for spending not enough time with them and letting my sisters babysit all the time. this has to change in the very nearby future, right after finals will be done. And after Victoria’s out of the way and completely burned to ash.

Suddenly I hear a very scared mind close and I look up, the right moment he starts to yell for Jacob.
Jacob’s head follows the sound and his eyes fall on Embry, one of the pack. There’s something wrong and I immediately fear that Victoria has come earlier than seen in the vision.
‘Embry what’s wrong?’ Jacob hisses as Embry has closed the distance. His face looks pale in comparison to their usual bronze skin.
‘It’s Seth!’ the shape shifter gasps,’ He’s hurt.’

I am immediately alarmed and so is Jacob, ’What happened with him?’
Jacob is ranting as we follow Embry off of the beach to where Seth must be.
‘I believe he was attacked,’ Embry says sharply and I cringe.

So Victoria was here earlier than expected.
‘We’ll have to be faster. If he’s hurt he needs care,’ I say a tad harsher than I intended. I look at Embry, ’Where is he?’
Embry hesitates, ’Close to the cliffs. I believe it was a vampire. It fled by jumping into the water. Seth was too late to get to him.’

Fear settles in my stomach but I keep on walking. It appears there’s another vampire walking here on our grounds.
We need to help the young wolf. It didn’t matter now if I’d be home late or punished for going to la push – there’s was someone being hurt and I needed to help him. Because if it were my child, I would want someone to do the same, no matter what consequences were bound to that.

Edward POV

I am sitting in the dining room, waiting for Alice who’s picking up Melody from the hospital. I wasn’t exactly sure why she went there, but Alice assured me there wasn’t anything to worry about. Mockingly, I backed off and have been waiting for their return since then.

I grin as I remember what I did in Biology class today. I don’t know what had come over me, but I got her all flustered. She’s got me like that from ever since the moment she talked to me last year. God, is she beautiful. After I left I’ve been trying to forget and refuse our sex life. Or lack thereof. But her curves, her charm and the way she raises my sons makes me want her in that way. I really did change my mind – I can wallow in self-pity or I can make the best of it, for both our sakes. I want to make her feel good, cherished and loved. And animalistic.

I wince – I can never get wild with her in any way. She’s too breakable for that. Her secret swirls my mind all the time. At one hand I really want to know what she is and where she’s capable of, but on the other hand I’d like to bury it. She can’t be herself, for her own good, even though that sounds horrible and mean. Aro can’t get her in his hands because I won’t let him. And if melody stays on the background that won’t happen either.
But it pains me to have to hurt her, my beloved. I can see how badly she wants to tell me and I am aware that she’s not as human as Bella is. Her siblings are the perfect example of that.

Suddenly I’m aware of Alice’s Porsche pulling into the driveway. I smile, excited to see my pretty lady again and curious about how everything went in the hospital, whatever she’s been doing there. I get up from the chair and race out of the front door, only to see just Alice getting out of the car. on her own. Confusion hits my senses and a frown wrinkles my forehead.

‘Where’s Melody? I thought you were picking her up?’
Alice holds up her hands and seems distant somehow. I don’t trust it.
‘Relax, I wanted to talk to you about the vision so I dropped Melody off at the Swan Residence. She’s with Raven and Blaze now, alright?’
I stare at my sister for a while. I’m actually disappointed because I’d wanted to cuddle up with my girlfriend and just enjoy each other’s company. Or we could’ve done the very same, at her house and have the twin cuddle with us. now I was alone after all. I should probably see her later tonight.
‘Come on, we need to talk strategies for when Victoria is here. We can’t let anything happen to Denim Faith and Alana.’
I roll my eyes and follow Alice back inside. She sits down on the sofa in the living room and I take the opposite one.
‘So are we discussing this with just the two of us or is there anyone else here?’ I ask my sister. She shakes her head though, ‘The other’s will join us in five seconds.’
And exactly five seconds later, we’re all gathered waiting for the first one of us to speak and come up with an idea.

‘What exactly beholds your vision, Alice?’ is Carlisle’s question which Alice answers to make everything clear, ’Denim, Faith and Alana are Victoria’s first aim. We’re not sure why but it seems she wants to revenge Melody, or Bella for that matter. She tries to hurt them, but they are able to shake her off before she flees again. You all must know, that the three have very strong and lethal powers which they probably inherited from their vampire parent. I’m sure they could fight her if they got the chance, but she flees. Before everything gets out of hand, we should make sure she’s down.’
We’re all quiet and I sense Carlisle studying me. I give him a confused look and he focuses on something else. His mind is blocking me.
Maybe it has something to do with Melody being in the hospital? Something I’m not allowed to know?

‘When will she be here?’
Jasper, ever the soldier, is direct to the point and already considering a various amount of strategies.
Alice faces her husband, ’I can’t tell precisely – tomorrow night or Tuesday night. The vision is not clear enough yet.’
‘so how are we going to do this? It’s obvious those children need to be out of the area, especially Raven and Blaze. They’re easy victims and we’re not sure if Victoria knows of their existence,’ Emmett remarks. He’s right and I’d already decided that my children, or those of the Swans for that matter won’t indeed be anything near forks until the red-head was out of the way.
‘True. They’ll stay in Port Angeles. To not scare them away to much, they’ll go to see a movie there. One of the Swan vampires can go with them just to be sure, might here be any danger,’ is Alice’s suggestion.
‘Isabella and Melodiana have to leave also. Victoria is aiming for them after all.’
Esmé is anxious that something might happen to anyone, and I’m glad she is. Alice however, is hesitating and I hear Rosalie’s ridiculous idea forming.
‘Not happening Rose!’ I snap angrily and she rolls her eyes.
‘Edward, setting them as a bait would get Victoria to us faster. We can shred her just in time!’
‘I said it’s not happening! They’re humans and humans near a vampire is no good. You know that! They won’t be able to protect themselves!’ I roar at my sister, ever vain, ever shallow, ever and only thinking about how she can save herself best.

‘Rose, your idea is indeed a tad too crazy but –‘
‘It’s fucking disturbed!’ I interrupt Alice.
‘Watch your language Edward! we’re having a serious conversation here and I expect you to be civilized in this!’ Esmé warns me sternly. I keep my mouth shut, irritated to the very tips of my hair.

Alice clears her throat, not truly needing to, ‘As I was saying ; we’re not going with Rose’s plan but seriously Edward – Melody is not as fragile as you think. You just don’t want to see that! How in the world do you think she carried two vampire hybrid infants for three months!? They grow like crazy! Her body was strong enough to keep them and herself healthy. A mere human would have died!’
Everyone fell silent, and I was dumbstruck. A spark of fear for Melody’s unknown inhumanity tickles at my mind. I want to panic, my reflex reaction, but I will myself to think about it.

And off course, Alice is right. And it makes my girlfriend’s inhumanity even more real. Face it, Edward, I tell myself, Get used to it.
I let out a deep sigh and motion with my hand for them to continue as I listen from behind my hands.

‘Alright, this is how we’re going to do it…’
