Layla POV

It’s been two whole hours and Adam and Scarlett are still trying to stabilize Melody. I’m just praying that Chris and Nathan will stay away for a while longer.
The whole situation has gotten me nervous. My emotions are sprawled all over the place. Should I be scared? Yes, and I am. I fear my sisters life. I fear the rage my husband will feel when he hears about this. I fear the reaction of Fairoza. 
And then anger. Fury. I’m so enormously enraged about what happened. And that while I don’t even know the complete story. We only know that Edward has bitten her. And that’s she wounded severely. 

And I’d gladly beat the shit out of Edward for that. 

But then there is compassion. For Edward who’s still on the couch in hysterics. I’ve barely seen a man so emotional. Apart from Nathan when he found his sister practically dead. 
Edward’s sobs get me through the bone. They feel icy and painful against my senses. I feel bad for him, but I don’t. it’s a dubious feeling. 
with a deep sigh I try to circle my arms around the old young vampire that needs to be calmed down. 
He struggles first, but then he just gives in. I’m a mother and although Edward is only 6 years younger than me and at the same time double my true age – I need to take care of him.

‘It’s going to be fine Edward. They’ll do everything they can.’
He nods, I can feel the movement on my shoulder. He does not speak, and for now he doesn’t have to, but when Melody’s condition is stable he has a lot to explain. That is for sure. 
We sit there for another fifteen minutes and all I know are the sounds coming from the kitchen and the soft breaths of sleeping children upstairs. They have no idea what’s happening at this moment, in the very middle of the night. I just pray that Melody will survive. For the sake of her boys. All three of them. And for us of course. We all need her safe and healthy. Not broken and fragile as glass. 

‘Mom?’ 
And there we have it. I drop my arms away from Edward and run towards the staircase. My daughter was standing at the top with a confused expression on her face ,’Mom, what’s going on?’ 
my expression falls as I look at her worried face. Then I shake my head and muster a small smile, ’Sweetie, we have a few complications, but other than that there is nothing to worry about, ok?’ 
I give her that look. The look that lets het know that I’m serious here and that she is not to tell anyone. Fay nods and then stumbles sleepily back to her bedroom. 
I’m back with Edward less than a second later. He’s still in hysterics and it’s to get mad about. 

‘Layla!’ 
and I’m flying to the kitchen. Before I enter, I motion for Edward to stay seated. 
‘Yes?’ I address Adam, the one that called me and at the same time I process my surroundings. Melody’s stopped bleeding and it looks like they have bandaged the cuts on her back. What worries me though, is the whiteness of her skin and the icy temperature that seems to come off of it. 

‘Don’t worry,’ Scarlett’s hand is on my shoulder, her expression as calm as possible in this situation ,’We had to take some drastic decisions. Adam has put his venom in her system to avenge Edward’s.’
I’m actually shocked, ’What? More venom?’
Adam, who’s busy wrapping Melody in a few blankets explains, ‘Our venom is different than that from a bloodless vampire. We have blood in our system and human capabilities. With inserting my venom with a needle, directly into her heart, it is supposed to work as an antigen. Her temperature has cooled down vastly. So now her body is frozen.’ 

I study my young sister-in-law and I’m once again surprised by the faint beat of her heart.
‘It’s still beating,’ I remark, caressing the skin of her forehead. The ice-cold feel of it frightens me. It’s like…like. She looks and feels like a corpse.
‘You have to see it as…if she’s enduring the change, but not wholly.’
I cut him off,’ she’s been through that two times before and it’s never wholly. When will it?’ 
Scarlett sighs,’ we don’t know. We will when it eventually happens.’ 
the sigh of relief that I have been waiting for finally exits my lungs, ’Well thank God she at least lives. What to do now?’
Movement behind me makes me turn around.
‘We wait. Her bodily system probably needs adjustment to Adam’s antigen and her back needs to heal from the wounds.’ Skye remarks, entering the kitchen. And Edward’s not to be allowed near her.’
The harshness in her voice gives me an idea of how angry she is. 
‘Skye, we cannot really do that. I agree that Edward should stay away for a few days. But they love each other. That’s why this happened in the first place.’ Adam walks around the table and leaves the kitchen. 
‘People go to extremes for love, don’t they?’ I ask, trying to lighten the mood. Skye giggles lightly so does Scarlett. 

When Adam comes back he’s taken a hospital bed with him. We help him place the frozen girl on it. Scarlett attaches an IV and blood donor to her hand. We leave the kitchen so we can bring her to the new hospital room in the basement. We have to go through the living room to reach the elevator that leads down and when we do, Edward’s on his feet immediately. Wrong move.

Skye is at his throat in an instant and she’s hissing violently. Edward backs away, warily and confused.
“ Is she…she’s going to be alright?’ he asks with a breaking voice. Skye huffs before Adam can answer, ’Yes. Not thanks to you.’
Adam nods solemnly at him and then goes back to pushing the bed forward. I stay with Skye and Edward, seeing they’re not on great terms now. Skye’s become lunatic before which makes her enormously aggressive. 

‘Alright, guys. Back down. Skye, on that couch. Edward on the other.’ 
my sister-in-law looks at me with a death glare, one that I ignore. We stare at each other for a short while and then she sits down. 
‘So, now we have another thing to worry about. Which is tomorrow night.’ 
Skye frowns, ’What about it? We have a plan remember.’
I shake my head,’ We had a plan. But seeing the circumstances that plan has to cancelled.’
both Edward and Skye let this sink in, ’Shit.’ My sister exclaims.
‘my thoughts exactly. Edward? Do you think your family can solve this on their own or do they need some assistance?’
Edward thinks about that ,’I think they can handle her in the woods, but now Melody can’t leave town there are guards needed here and for Charlie.’
I slowly nod and think of a new plan to end Victoria.

‘Okay, this is how we’re going to do this..’
