Melody POV

My head is swimming, falling. Maybe even failing. I can’t register where I am anymore. what I feel. It’s numbed. But on the other hand I feel pain as well. A fierce, tearing hurt that can easily break me. or perhaps it’s already breaking me. who knows? 
It’s like my mind is in a state of floating. Maybe. I don ‘t know anything at this moment. Or I haven’t known something for a longer while. Again – who knows? 
A faint voice reaches me as I try to find my way back to somewhere. I lost myself, losing him. a tearful, harsh thing I can tell. That’s probably the only thing I can remember. 

Edward! I want to call out to him. I want him to comfort me and to tell me that everything is going to be fine. But I can’t reach him. 
the voices become louder, but only a little. My mind is swirling, floating through a thick white mist. Where am I? 
‘...set the monitor,’ is that Adam? ,’ will cost us too much time to..’ 
It is! It’s Adam! I want to ask him where I am and what is happening to me, but I can’t move my lips nor let my voice be able to form any words. I wonder if I am even able to form a sound. My throat burns. A strange tickling pain is coursing through it. and then I realize everything starts to burn. I’m on fire! Help me! Get me out of it!
I want to move but my arms refuse to do anything. My legs stubbornly stay where they are, wherever they are. 

‘...that tube! She needs the morphine!’ 
‘ …rry up! Layla get out of here before you wi…’
more voices! Help me! get me out of here, of this fire. It hurts so much. Where are the calming arms and the soft fingers to brush away my tears? Where are the soothing words functioning as water to stop the fire. 
‘Edward stay out of this! You’ve done enough damage!’ I hear Scarlett snarl and surprisingly something cold on my forehead. I can feel something again and it relieves me.

‘Shhh, you won’t feel anything now. when you wake up again the pain will be gone sweetie, I swear! You’ll only have to…’
my mind fails to keep up. it’s like TV and I’m zapping through the channels, stopping anyone who’s talking mid-sentence. 

The last thing I can feel is a sharp sting at the place where my heart lays. And it chokes me back into darkness again

Edward POV

‘Edward get out of here! NOW! We can’t use your anxiety here!’ Scarlett is yelling at me and pushing Layla and me out of the kitchen. The blood has gotten worse and is covering the table. I don’t know how, but the venom is driving it out of her. It’s excruciating to watch. 
for once I listen and with some help of Layla I stumble out of the kitchen where Adam and Scarlett are trying to fix Melody. 
it’s not until I sit on the couch with Layla kneeling in front of me that I realize I’m shaking, hyperventilating and sobbing like a drowning man. 
‘Edward, please try to relax! Adam knows what he is doing!’ the blonde vampire tries to reassure me but it’s difficult to calm down. Because it’s my own fault. It was me to bite her, to get my venom in her system and have her blood flow out like a waterfall. 

The second I said I’ve bitten her, Adam was at my throat, pushing me against the wall. He was growling at me and I could see why he is so fierce on protecting Melody. 
He loves her. Like a brother of course, but his love for that girl is almost just as fierce as Nathan’s love for his sister. Adam has a wife and a son he’d die for. But Melody is his little girl. And he protects that limitless. 
I did no effort to push him off of me, but Scarlett yelled at him hat it wasn’t time for fighting over this while Melody was dying. 
She’s dying. All because of me and my disgusting desirous and monstrous feelings. 
‘It’s my fault! I did this to her! You should not be calming me Layla!’

‘Edward I need to tell you something. And it’s going to be very harsh.’ She whispered, holding my face in her hands. My cheeks are wet with shed tears. 
‘You know that a vampire bite makes a human become like us. Nod if you understand me alright?’ she started. I do as she’s asked me and nod. 
‘you also understand that Melody is not…completely-‘
‘I know,’ I harshly interrupt her. Her hands leave my face immediately. 
‘All right. The thing is…her kind reacts differently than the humans.’ 
I take some time processing that as I hear movements and frantic speaking coming from the kitchen. Then I nod.

‘I’m so sorry Edward but….She’s gotten vampire venom in her system once before..and the chance that she will survive this time is…very slight.’
