I don't own Twilight or any of the people from it...I just play with them.
All my life I was dedicated to one cause…to find and destroy them. I knew my job and I did it well. I had several kills under my belt at my young age of 18, but there were always more. I rarely slept, sleeping takes precious time. Time I could be putting towards my cause. I made a vow to myself at a very young age that I wouldn’t stop until their kind was extinct. They are nothing but monsters and they didn’t deserve to walk this earth. They are an abomination that I planned to wipe out.
But what happens when the one thing you would give your life to destroy becomes the one thing you would give your life to protect?
I heard my fathers booming voice scream to me. The sound of snarls and heavy paws thudding against the cold damp ground sent my heart racing and the adrenaline coursing through my tiny body. I heard pounding against the back door right before I made it out the front.
“Get out of here now! Both of you run!” My father yelled frantically to my mother and I.
Her arms were around me in an instant picking me up and running us outside into the night. The cold air kissed my face that was soaked with tears and sweat. I looked back at my home and saw shadows moving within. Had I not have known what was actually happening, it would almost look like people were inside dancing. I saw my father sprint out the door behind us. The huge beasts were still inside tearing through everything, searching for us. I heard my father curse to himself as a giant form left the house and sniff into the air. They were coming and there was no where for us to go. My mothers arm held me tighter, clutching her tiny daughter for dear life. She held me like her arms would be enough to save me when they finally caught up.
The howls grew louder. They were right behind us. I hid my face in my mothers neck, tears spilling once again.
“Baby, you need to run. Go as fast and as far as you can. Do NOT look back do you understand me?” My mother whispered to me fiercely as she set me on my unsteady feet. I saw her glance at my father letting him in on her plan. I was too little to grasp what was happening. “Go Lilly! Run!”
And I did. My little feet carried me as fast as they could. Low branches slapped at my face, cutting the fragile skin but I didn’t stop. I knew stopping meant I wouldn’t make it. I heard my father yelling and I heard my mothers voice break into a scream and then nothing. I never looked back, not once. I kept running. My blood became fire and that was the only thing keeping me moving. My heart felt ready to explode, but I couldn’t stop moving. Each breath stung my tired lungs but I ignored the pain.
I made it to the side of a road before I collapsed. I curled into a ball and covered my ears as hard as I could and I cried.
I shot up out of my bed, a cold sweat clinging to my skin. I had been plagued with this dream since that night. I drew a deep breath and flopped back onto my pillow. I knew I wasn’t going to be able to get back to sleep so I climbed out of my massive bed and made my way to the bathroom. My reflection didn’t hide the fact that I had nightmares all night. The purple/black bags under my eyes stood out like a sore thumb on my pale skin. My dark hair was glued to my face by the drying sweat. I groaned and turned on the shower. The steam filled the room and I stepped under the hot water. My tense body relaxed slowly and I calmed down.
*If I had just been a little older I could have saved her.*
I shook the thought out of my head. I was just a little girl, there was nothing that I could have done different. My mother gave her life to protect me. I felt a very strong guilt over that but I know she didn’t regret her choice. My father was never the same after that night. When I told him I wanted to hunt werewolves with him, he lost his mind. He yelled at me telling me that he couldn’t bear it if he lost me too. I assured him that
