It Will Be Quick & Painless
"According to Bella's information about Anabel's chemotherapy not having any effect, Bella will be the one to change Anabel. Since the rest of us don't have the same resistance level to blood like she does."
They were right on that part. I was able to pass as a surgeon when I saved that kid, Owen's life. I got over my blood lust rather easy in the job, but that was all over. I wouldn't be able to be a doctor anymore. I was just too young. I would have to settle with as a candy striper.
They didn't even do much, other than do the things that most nurses didn't want to do.
"I can't wait to see Bryan. He said he had some sort of surprise for me." I had almost forgotten that Faith and Hope were starting to see Tony and Bryan. I couldn't be happier for them. They deserved someone to make them happy.
I felt a sudden pang of saddness. Why is that? I don't remember anyone in my past life that I had feelings for. Plus it hurt to much to think about the past for some reason. Angela was hiding something from me, but I couldn't figure out what that something was.
"I hope you change her soon! She sounds like a lot of fun, from what I heard at least."
"Hope, she's not a theme park ride, besides I don't know if I want her to live with us or not. If she really did see me being attacked and then raped, why didn't she do anything to stop it?!"
"Both of you stuff a sock in it! Faith, if you would've seen someone shot, what would you have done?"
She thought fora second and quickly said, "I would've run to the person and seen what I could do instead of running off like a coward!"
I raised an eye brow at her response. I didn't even need Angela to tell me that Faith was lying. I knew that she was angry that someone would've been able to help her, but didn't.
"Faith, now you know that that isn't quite true. She was scared. Wouldn't you have ran away?"
"Like a scared little girl." I shot Hope a warning look. They were both vampires now, and still somewhat newborns. I didn't want them to say or do anything that they didn't have control over yet.
"Ok, so I would've ran, but it just sucks that that bitch didn't do anything to stop the bastard from shooting me! I don't blame her or myself for what happened. I blame the bastard that did this to me. Because of him I had to become the living dead. I can't even go to my mom and dad and tell them that I'm alright, because technically I'm dead."
With that Faith ran out of the room and up to her room. Which left the room feeling awkward and uncomfortable. I can only imagine how Angela must be dealing with the intense awkwardness.
"I...I'm going to go check on her. You that she really wasn't all to upset about Anabel right?"
I just nodded my head and let her run off.
"From what I can feel Bells, Faith is just feeling helpless and confused. Which I can tell scares her since she's this new strong vampire. So I could tell what she saying she meant at the time she said them, but that wasn't her real feelings about the subject." Angela glanced at her watch. "Looks like it's getting close to Anabel coming home from her last chemotherapy session soon. If you're going to go change her you better do it now."
I let out a sigh and nodded my head. I sped off at vampire speed to my car and made my way over to her house.
I finally made it across town to Anabel's house. It was a typical small two-story house for a woman who lived alone. It looked so familiar to me, but I couldn't remember why. It must be one of my suppressed memories of my human life. The house looked somewhat dull, but looked like it was big enough that it always had company come the holidays. I turned off the car and looked around to make sure no one was around that would see me move at my normal speed.
No one was around that I could see with my 'super vision', so I sped off to the front door and knocked on the door. And from what I could hear she was in the upstairs bathroom vomiting. Which is a normal side effect with chemo. They have medication for it now, but it seems that either her doctor didn't prescribe any, or the medicince wasn't working.
I knocked on the door, and heard a raspy response I couldn't even understand. I heard her stumble a bit down the stairs.
"I'm coming...give me a minute...."
When she opened the door I was shocked at the sight that was in front of me. There standing before me was not the Anabel I saw in the hospital bed a few months ago. Here in front of me was a pale-looking woman with paper white complextion and dark circles under her eyes.
And instead of the long honey-colored hair, I saw a colorful head wrap covering what I assumed was her semi-bald head. I knew that hair loss was a possible side effect as well.
"Yes?......Bella, what are you doing here?! I thought you had forgotten about me."
I chuckled soft enough that she wouldn't have heard it.
"I didn't forget about you, or what you asked me a few months back, in fact that's why I'm here."
"Oh well come in." She ushered me in and asked me to have a seat. She carefully sat down on the couch. I sat down on the coffee table in front of her.
"I've talked it over with my 'family', and we've all agreed that it's ok to change you."
She tried to smile but instead she started to look green. Which I assumed was the nausea kicking in. "That's good to hear....if you would excuse me for a minute."
She ran off to the bathroom. I cringed when I heard her throwing up in the bathroom. I hoped she knew what she was doing, but at the same time I guess anything else was better than puking your guts out after every chemo session, especially since they apparently seemed not to take effect. She practically was slowly dying.
She and I both knew that. I assumed that's why she all but begged me to change her.
"Ok, I'm ready." She said as she wiped her lips with the back of her hand.
"What?! Now?! Are you sure?"
She nodded her head yes. "I'm tired of the chemo, and I already know that it's not working. I don't want to die, and this will be the perfect solution."
I didn't want to pop her bubble, but she apparently didn't know that she would never be able to have children, and would never be able to live a 'normal' life once she's turned.
"You do realize that you will never be able to have children, and that you will never be able to live a normal life again right?"
"Yes, but I will never get older, and I won't have cancer anymore. That's the major reason why I want this. I thought you were on board with this Bella?"
"I am, but I didn't know it was going to be so soon. I mean, are you really sure that you want to give up your human life?
"Yes, it's better than wasting it puking my guts out and living in misery."
She had a point. I agreed and decided that I would make the arrangements. I would change her back at the house and get the obituary ready for her. She even said that she wanted to make it where the town thought she committed suicide by overdosing on her meds. This way the town would sympathize about her condition, and noth think badly of her.
The only drawback to this would be that we would have to move again. With Anabel 'dead', she couldn't be seen walking around town.
I would make one thing sure, I would make sure that her transformation was painless, unlike mine was.
A/N: Ok, what did yall think? I know it was kind of an ubtupt ending, but I wanted to leave it like this so I could have the next chapter about Anabel waking up from the transformation.
I also apologize for taking so long to update. I've been busy with schoolwork, taking care ofa now 9wk chihuahua puppy, and marching band stuff.
Please let me know what you all think!!
