Renesmee! Could that little angel really have been just a dream? Will she sound like that when she's older? How did she grow so fast? I wondered as blackness took over my vision again.
All the images floating around in my head were really confusing me. I was having a hard time separating fact from fiction. The only thing I was certain of was that I was married to Edward and our love had created two perfect little angels.
Why can't I remember anything else? Why can't I remember any part of my life before Edward? I remembered everything after my transformation perfectly, so why were all my human memories foggy all of a sudden? It was as if someone had suddenly suppressed the memories connecting me to my past, but why.
At that moment, something seemed to click and flashes of creatures that covered their faces with dark hooded cloaks masked my vision. For the first time in my existence, my whole body seemed frozen in place. It was as if I couldn't move!
Just then, the vision shifted again. One of the creatures was now hanging over me. I felt like it was sucking the life out of my very soul, and I couldn't do anything to stop it. I tried so hard to fight, but my body just remained unmoving.
I struggled in vain to call for Edward as the monster muttered words that shattered my soul.
"Mai avrebbero dovuto avere una vita immortale, e ora è il momento per il tuo tipo di andare al pozzo profondo dell'inferno." I knew what that cruel monster had spoken in the one language that any vampire would know, Italian.
It took everything I had to force a loud cry to escape from my lips and just like that, blackness became flicking colours until I focused on the one thing that mattered, my family.
I could now hear Edward begging me to return. His voice was frantic with fear and I felt him clutching me tightly against his body. I knew I needed to focus on trying to open my eyes because my family needed me with them. I had always promised myself never to let anything hurt my family. Today wasn't going to be the day I broke that promise.
Aiden had promised that Bella would be all right with some rest, but his words had no reassurance behind them. I could feel panic overwhelming me. It was as if someone had crushed my heart into tiny little pieces right in front of my eyes.
I wanted Bella's beautiful butterscotch eyes to flutter open, so that my frozen heart could mend. The twins seemed to agree with me. Masen was attempting to wake Bella by flapping his arms wildly in front of his mother's face while Renesmee seemed to be gazing at her mother so intently it almost bought impossible tears to my eyes.
"Don't worry Renesmee, mommy will wake up soon," I promised hopefully, but that didn't seem to reassure Renesmee enough to relax her focused gaze. I worried that Renesmee could sense something that I couldn't. It was as if she was connected to her mother on a different level and it made me wonder if Aiden was wrong. What if Bella never woke up? Vampires shouldn't be able to sleep, let alone get hurt or drained.
That thought alone was enough to make a panicked whimper escape my lips. I needed my Bella here with me. I couldn't live without her!
I was broken out of my desperate thoughts, when Renesmee started to cry and reach for Bella. No matter how hard I tried to calm her Renesmee just kept trying to push herself out of my arms and into Bella's.
"Please Nessie you need to calm down for daddy," I pleaded uselessly as she started to thrash in my arms. Suddenly, a loud cry escaped Bella's lips.
With that, the room fell silent. I started forward with the twins still in my arms attempting to get closer to my Bella.
After that, things seemed to move in slow motion as three things happened at once. First, Bella's eyes started to flutter uncontrollably. Second, the lights went out and a cold wind filled the room as the twins screamed their lungs out in my arms and if that wasn't bad enough I heard Aiden curse under his breath. That's when I knew what was happening! The monsters that had hurt my Bella were back. Nightmares didn't even come close to comparing with their presence, but I knew one thing for sure, they could do what they liked to me, but they would never touch my family again!
A/N: Translation of the phase in Italian: "You were never meant to have an immortal life and now it is time for your kind to go to the deepest pit of hell."
