Edward is so irritating! How he could say those things? What does he know? Must he be able to read minds?! Aargh!!
Rosalie's thoughts were on Edward as she ran. They were all in Appalachia,Carslie,Esme,and Edward. Edward had heard her thoughts,heard how she wishes to be human again,how she would give up ANYTHING to be able to have children. He said some things which made Rosalie want to rip his throat out. Instead she ran off,going to hunt.
Rosalie stopped. She was outside of Gatlinburg, Tennesse. She had run over 100 miles. All to get away from Edward. It was worth it. He couldn't hear her thoughts anymore. She could hunt in peace,without Edward trying to provoke her.
She closed her eyes and sniffed the air. A young doe,a couple of miles away and lost,trying to find her mother. It would be too easy,Rosalie decided,I need something more challenging. Besides,I want the doe to find her mother. There,a grizzly bear. Perfect. But there was another scent. A human's. What would a human be doing so close to a bear? She sniffed even more carefully. If she was correct,the human was being mauled by the bear.
Without thinking,Rosalie ran to the spot where the bear was. Without considering the fact that she was thristy and that the man was covered in his own blood. It was tempting,the blood smelled so good. I could go over there,lean towards the man's neck and bite. How good it must... No,she told herself sternly,no I'm not going to do that. I have never tasted human blood and I'm not about to. Concentrate on the grizzly. He'll taste better,much better.
Just then,Rosalie saw the man's face for the first time. He was grimacing in pain. Yet,his dimples were visible and he looked so... innocent. How?,she wondered,And with his dark curls he looks like Henry. Vera's little Henry! How could a grown man resemble Henry so much? Henry was a baby. Right now,he would be 2 and a half,Rosalie caculated.
She couldn't let him die. It would be like...like letting the bear kill her best friend's son,she couldn't bear to watch. But she could help. Rosalie snarled and threw herself at the bear. The bear was confused for a moment and then growled at her. With a swipe of its paw,the bear tried to take her head off. But the blow simply bounced off. The grizzly staggered back;the man fell. Rosalie caught him and looked at him.
He was going to die,she could tell. Can I...? Do I have the strength? But she knew the answer to that. His blood was too over-whelming. I can't do it,Roslie realized,but Carslie can. She began the run,so much more harder now. She was trying hard not to bite him because she knew she wouldn't stop. And Rosalie didn't want him to die,she couldn't let him,she wouldn't.
Then,finally,FINALLY,there was only about 3 miles left. She was screaming,in her head,Edward! Edward!! I need Carslie! I need Carslie right NOW!! Please Edward!
Rosalie saw Carslie,Esme,and Edward outside of their camp. They had not gotton far,only a few yards. But they knew,Edward had told them. Rosalie was relieved;she wouldn't have to explain this to them. All three looked worried.
"Why,Rosalie? Why does he need to be changed? I thought you hated our world. Why?" asked Edward.
Rosalie ignored him. She turned to Carslie with a pleading expression. Carslie nodded and Rosalie smiled. She lay him on the ground. Edward spoke again.
"His name is Emmett McCarty;he's twenty years old. He thinks he's already died and that he's in Heaven and Rosalie is his angel."Edward scoffed at that idea and Rosalie frowned at him.
Carslie already bit Emmett;the venom was entering his body. He pulled away and looked at Emmett.
"He'll soon start screaming. How do you think he'll take the news?" asked Carslie.
"Not good" Rosalie replied."He probably had a good and happy life." Like me, she added in her head. Edward raised his eyebrows but said nothing.
"I think so,too" agreed Carslie. Esme spoke for the first time.
"When will we tell him?" "As soon as he starts screaming,which takes several minutes,sometimes half an hour," replied Carslie. Esme nodded. There was a short pause. And then Esme asked,"What do we do now?" This time Rosalie answered. "Now we wait."
