<lj-cut text="Somewhere, a predator had caught up with its prey">Somewhere, a predator had caught up with its prey; Jasper could sense the chase coming to an end. Both of the creatures' beating hearts were more than audible, despite the fact that they were out of sight. Placing his hand on the small of Alice's back, he gave her a small smile before glancing surreptitiously at Bella. Edward was worried for good reason: even well-fed, Bella could end up in danger thanks to her seemingly bad luck.
"So, everybody up for some fun?" he asked with a grin."

Edward nodded towards Jasper, his face tight with apprehension. He held Bella's hand firmly as they walked side by side.

"Are you ready?" he asked quietly, squeezing her hand. "You can back out at anytime. Just say the word."

He had a bad feeling about the day.

Bella smiled and squeezed Edward's hand back, "I'll be fine. Honestly."

Alice hadn't foreseen anything wrong, so she was quite confident that everything would go just fine. No one could blame Edward for worrying, of course; he was prone to paranoia these days.

"It's like Bella's going to vampire school~!" Alice teased, holding onto Jasper's arm as they made their way to their preferred hunting ground.

Finally, a hunt.

It had been far too long since he'd last hunted. But no, Edward wanted the entire family to be together. Emmett rolled his eyes. This was ridiculous.

But if this was what he had to sacrifice for Bella's sanity and safety in her new life, he guessed he could do it. After all, she was really entertaining to have around.

He turned to Rosalie. "Do you wanna split off or stay here?"

Rose pursed her lips, debating Emmett's question. She had not spoken to anyone except for he and Alice since the epic fight in the garage the day prior, so staying with everyone would be a little...awkward on her part. And besides, she had hunted in ages, and she wanted nothing more than to find her prey and get this over with.

But...they were doing this for Bella's sake. And on the other hand, this would finally give Bella some real insight onto the darker side of this life.

She couldn't miss that.

"Stay here," she said softly.

Rosalie rolled her eyes and swallowed back her harsh comments. This display was almost sickening. Beautiful is what Bella had called them. Hn. They were lunch.

Sticking her nose up in the air, Rosalie walked a little faster. This only backed up her theory that Bella had no idea what she was in for.

"As endearing as this is," she began, her back to them, "Think we can hurry this up a bit? Some of us would like to feed sometime this century."

"Perhaps you should go on ahead, Rosalie," Edward said, turning to smile at Bella. "You can be a little messy when you drink."
6th-Nov-2007 08:41 pm (UTC)
Rosalie pursed her lips and gave a little smirk. 'I could say a million and three things right now, Edward,' she thought, thinking it better to say it in her head than out loud. 'But for the sake of peace keeping, I won't. You immature prat.'

"That sounds like a good idea, Edward," Rosalie said in a sickly sweet voice. "I won't get in your way."
9th-Nov-2007 10:02 am (UTC)
Bella snickered at Rosalie and Edward. She knew that Rosalie was insulting Edward in her head, could see it on her face. She laughed aloud and then sobered up.

"So," she said in a small voice, her thoughts turning to the hunt ahead, "What now?"

Jasper smiled at Bella, glad she wasn't taking Rosalie and Edward's fighting too seriously. If she was going to become one of them, she'd have to get used to it quickly. "If we've decided pon the deer, then we're going to drink," he answered, not sure how much Edward wanted to tell Bella about the experience.
11th-Nov-2007 04:34 am (UTC)
Alice decided to take it upon herself to start. Tuning out the slight bickering of her siblings, she became very silent, fixated on the deer.

Of course, since they were just deer and not large prey such as grizzlies or mountain lions, it really didn't require this much attention. But she thought Bella might get more out of it if they all tried to take it somewhat seriously.

She focused on a good-sized doe that didn't seem to be aware of them at all. It stood with it's head to the ground, grazing peacefully. Alice didn't think of "Bambi" when she looked at the animal; she thought "sustenance".

Alice's sharp eyesight saw the deer's ears start to rise; in an instant she was on it, fangs to the throat and tearing. It wasn't like the movies where the vampire left two neat pinprick holes in the neck; no, it was much more bloodier and gruesome than that. The jugular vein was torn so that the blood could be drained quickly.

"Oh," Bella let out quietly, as she watched Alice. She took an involuntary step backward, a reflex she didn't even realise she'd done until she found herself two paces behind Edward.

It was somewhat like a car crash. She found herself not able to look away, although she was revolted by what she saw. This was. Weird. And going to change things.

And then the smell of blood hit her, wafting by on a passing breeze, and she was on the ground before she knew it.
13th-Nov-2007 03:29 am (UTC)
Watching Alice proudly, Jasper almost didn't notice the change in the emotions surrounding him. Bella's shock and disgust cut through Rosalie's annoyance and the others' pleasure. Turning his gaze reluctantly from Alice, he realized Bella had collapsed. Restraining the reflex to help a damsel in distress, he glanced questioningly at Edward, not sure if his brother still wanted him away from his human love.
13th-Nov-2007 06:59 am (UTC)
Edward's eyes kept flicking back and forwards between Bella and Alice. When Bella backed away, Edward moved to tell Alice to stop, realising how scared Bella must have been. He stopped and turned suddenly as she fell to the ground. He quickly ran to her side and lifted her into his lap, calling for Jasper to ask Alice to stop.

"Bella? Bella?" He stroked her cheek gently, trying to wake her up. If this didn't work, he'd have to shake her.
13th-Nov-2007 11:39 am (UTC)
Bella could feel Edward's cool hand seeping through the heat of her cheek as she struggled through the black that was engulfing her.

Her eyes fluttered open gently, erratically, and she struggled to get herself into a sitting position.
