I ran into Rosalie in the hall. Uh, oh. She didn't look very happy.
"Alice called," she started.
Alice? Why'd she call?
"She 说 that we're going to meet. Renesmee came back with bad news, and the mutt's not in sight. I bet she's pregnant, and then I'll have a reason to 包, 换行 my hand around his neck," she explained.
We ran out of the house and towards Bella and Edward's. Carlisle was waiting at the door. I peered inside. Edward was holding the girls. Alice was sitting in the corner with Jasper. Never have I seen it get so serious. I saw a strange man in the corner. Judging 由 the stink, he was a friend of Jacob's. I looked at Renesmee again. There was a mild blood spot on her sleeve. I smelled Jacob, and that, I guess, restrained Jasper. Jacob came bursting in the room.
"It's getting bigger," he announced. The new guy cleared his throat.
"Now, I'm sure Edward already knows who and what I am, as well as why I'm here, so I'll introduce myself first. I am Heram, and I know what that thing out there is. Now, for the first event. Nobody panic," he 说 quickly.
Everyone but Jacob, Edward, and Renesmee jumped. Suddenly, Heram was on fire. He seemed to burn to ash, and then in his place was a bright, golden bird. There was not a scorch mark on the floor, 或者 anywhere else. The bird flew and landed on Jacob's shoulder.
"A pheonix?" I asked.
We jumped again as Heram opened his beak and spoke.
"More like a guardian of chaos," the bird said.
"Oh, c'mon! Vampires, werewolves, WITCHES, now a stupid PHEONIX?!!!" I yelled.
"I guard chaos. Last time I'll tell you. My kind is very small. We know everything, down to the IQ in your brain."
"You won't see much in his," he laughed, pointing at me. Edward and Jacob laughed. The girls looked at their husbands angrily. Renesmee glared at Jacob. Heram cleared his throat again.
"What did 你 do to Mark's body?" he asked.
"Burned it," Jasper answered. The pheonix shook his head.
"I'm afraid that would be 更多 of a promotion," he said. "Carlisle, 你 remember the witch hunts, right?"
"Yes, it was too gruesome to watch," he whispered.
"That would increase the skill of a witch."
"Now, don't tell me, Mark's coming back and will be 更多 powerful than ever?" Bella interrogated.
"That is correct," he said. The room went dark. A power failure. Jasper cursed and ran to the powerbox outside. The lights flickered and went dark.
"It didn't work," I called out.
"I know, dammit!" came a very annoyed Jasper. Bella got up. She came back with eleven candles. Heram flew towards her. The bird caught fire, and some feathers instantly became flames on the wicks.
"Here," she 说 as she passed them out. She put one in the candle holder on the coffee table.
"That votex will be gone in a short while. The full transformation is almost done. Then Mark will seek his vengeance. I'm guessing he may kill your daughter," Heram said. Jacob walked to Renesmee, putting an arm around her.
"I'd never let him touch her," he said.
"That's for Mark to decide," Heram murmured. "He is now 更多 powerful than all of 你 put together."
We stayed quiet. Even I couldn't be... ME at a time like this. Now we were all facing death.
