This is another fan fiction written by yours truly. What if Riley did take up the offer to leave Victoria when he had the chance? Read on and you'll find out. Enjoy!
It was all so disorienting; being a vampire was harder than it looked. Thank God I had Victoria to help me. I don’t know what I’d do without her.
“You don’t have to do this, Riley,” the red-headed male, Victoria told me his name was Edward, said to me in a soothing, monotone voice. “You don’t have to fight. You can leave.” He stood in front of girl, his mate I guessed. She was human, that I knew for sure. I could hear her heart beating erratically with fear. The sound of blood pumping through her veins was a symphony to my ears. A cool breeze blew her scent across the little clearing between us and into my face. I had only smelled it one other time; when I stole her blouse from her room to use her scent for the army. It was much more potent now, and it made my mouth water. My predator instincts were kicking in and I wanted so bad to jump across the clearing and seize her up and drink from her. But Victoria wouldn’t like that. I had to hold back.
“Don’t listen to him, Riley,” Victoria ordered. I looked away from my target and looked up at her. She was in a crouch; teeth bared and had her blood red eyes locked on the human and her mate. “I told you about their mind games.”
She’s right. She told me about these yellow-eyed monsters; about how they would mess with my head, turn me against her; about how they were planning to take over Seattle as their hunting territory. I had to keep my focus.
“She’s using you,” the red head, Edward said to me. I turned my attention back to him. “She never loved you. Every touch, every kiss was a lie. She loved a monster named James. He tried to kill Bella and he was almost successful until I killed him. She just wants revenge. That’s why she built this army; so she could make me feel the pain of losing the one I loved like she does. You were just a pawn in her little game.”
James? She never mentioned a James to me; but by the sounds of things, the way that Edward talked there was a lot that Victoria didn’t tell me about. And who was this Bella? Was she the girl that Edward was guarding? Must be, because when he said James’ name she flinched and her heart picked up a little extra speed from past memories of the horrible incident.
I wish she would calm her heart. The only other thing that was swimming inside my head besides her scent was the sound of her heart going Bum Bum, Bum Bum, Bum Bum at a very fast pace. It reminded me of the past humans I’ve killed for my meals; the sounds of their hearts when I came out of the shadows, snuck up behind them, and sank my venom coated teeth into their flesh and drank. They were delicious memories, but they were making my lose focus. She was making me lose focus. Please calm your heart, I thought staring at her. Please.
I looked back to Victoria for her reassurance, to tell me this was all a lie. She took a pause that lasted for only a second before she turned to me and said, “You know that’s not true. I’ve always loved you, Riley.”
I noticed something in the tone of her voice, the way she said my name. There was no affection, not like Edward said Bella’s name. It was clear whenever he spoke of her that his unbeating heart would always be in her possession. But it wasn’t there in Victoria’s voice. I don’t know how I missed that before whenever she told me she loved me.
“Think about it,” Edward suggested. I turned my attention back to him as he continued. “You’re from Forks. You know the area. That’s something she needed; an advantage to make sure she won. You’re nothing to her.”
“Don’t listen to him!” Victoria ordered, venom seeping into her voice. She was getting angry and impatient. She wanted this over with. And quick.
I know she told me not to listen, but how could I not? Everything that Edward was saying was making perfect sense to me. It seemed like throughout this whole ordeal, ever since she Turned me Victoria has been nothing but abusive to me. Whenever I would report to her and she didn’t like what she heard she all but ripped me to shreds. But when I would give her good news about the army she would reward me, and that would send me mixed signals. I didn’t know what to make of it, so I stuck around and hoped that I would find out what all of that meant.
And now I have. But the question now was: Do I stay and fight or do I turn and run?
But how could I turn on everything that I’ve ever known since I’ve become a vampire? I knew of only one way to live, and this was it. I’d be completely alone if I left now; but I could hear the others out on the battlefield and they were losing. I could hear their screams of terror as they got ripped apart limb from limb. Victoria said that we would win easily; apparently that was another lie. She probably planned on being the only one that would survive the battle. God, how could I be such a fool?
I didn’t look, I didn’t even say goodbye to Victoria as I turned and ran into the trees. I could hear from behind me Victoria yelling, “Riley!” She only called my name once; that’s all she could get out before she was attacked. I could hear the sounds of fighting; snarls and hissing was exchanged. Then I heard the sound of an animal –it sounded like either a bear or a wolf- growling. After that there was only the sound of metal tearing; the sound of a vampire being killed. I stopped running and froze where I was. If I turned around now and went back I could try to fight off Edward and easily kill the animal. And if I survived I could piece Victoria back together and we could share the girl, Bella.
As I was just about to turn back I heard the crackle of a fire and a strong sweet scent filled the air. I looked up toward the sky and there it was; the thick black purple smoke that indicated a vampire’s funeral. I had seen it many times before when Victoria and I were in the early stages of building the army.
I stared up at the smoke for one more second before I continued with my escape. But I did not run towards the battle or where the billowing smoke was coming from; I ran in the direction towards Seattle. It was my only other real home besides Forks, and I sure as Hell couldn’t go back there.
As I ran I thought in my head, “Goodbye, Victoria. You were the only thing I was sure about in this world and you lied to me. You got what you deserved.”
