Everyone fell silent and stared at Leslie. Her hand and right forearm was covered in some sort of silver goo, and it looked like the goo was traveling up her arm and gaining speed.
Leslie shrieked and tried to wipe it off with her other hand, but instead it just stuck to that hand and started to travel up that arm, too.
Suddenly she was surrounded by Carlisle, Edward, and Emmett. The other vampires had backed off not to get in the way except Jasper who hovered around the edges trying to keep her from panicking. Bella, Jade, and Melody, slower to move, rushed up to Leslie.
"Carlisle, what's happening to me? Leslie said, trying not to touch anything as the goo crawled up her arms.
"I don't know," Carlisle said, his omnipresent calm close to breaking, "I don't know, I have no idea. I don't know what I should do."
"Wait, I've seen this before," Jade said, "In The Matrix! This is what happens to Neo when they're about to pull him out. Did you touch a mirror, Leslie?"
"I-I-I don't remember. I might have when Alice first made me up. I was so pretty. But I don't remember," she said.
"I saw that movie. I think you're totally right. It went just like this," said Emmett.
"But that's just a movie," Edward said.
"Yeah, and Twilight's just a book," Melody countered, "Thinking like that isn't going to help us very much right now."
"Well, if she's going into the Matrix, or coming out of it or whatever, I want to go," said Jade steadfastly.
"Me too," said Melody.
The goo had already enveloped Leslie's arms and she could feel it coating her whole body. They could see it coming up her neck passed the collar of her shirt.
Melody and Jade each grabbed one of Leslie's hands in both of their own. Everyone stepped back further as the goo spread to them, going faster than it had before. Everyone, except Emmett.
"I can't let them go alone. They're just kids," said Emmett, looking up tragically at Rosalie.
"I'll be back, Rose, I promise," he said as he gently grabbed Leslie's forearm and the silver goo spread to him. It was traveling faster and faster. It had already coated all of Leslie, and Melody and Jade's faces were almost completely covered.
Rosalie was next to Emmett in an instant, but she could only stand there powerlessly as he was completely covered in silver. She let out a frustrated and angry scream.
In another instant, the four of them were gone.
