Chapter 1

Seth was trying hard not to fidget at Leah’s side as they waited among the trees for the Volturi to come. His mind was swirling with nervous thoughts and, not for the first time, he was glad that he was no longer a part of Sam’s pack. Seth just knew this whole situation would be ten times worse if he had to listen to the terrified thoughts of the younger wolves - the ones who had never even met a vampire, good or bad.

‘Hell, even I’m scared,’ he thought. ‘And I’ve fought them before.’

‘Stop being such a wuss Seth,’ Leah returned. 'You and our precious leader here wouldn’t let us kill the leeches when we had the chance and now we’re all paying the price. We were too lenient, and now everyone’s going to die, including your precious bloodsuckers.’

Seth whimpered at his sister’s harsh words and Jacob growled from where he was waiting in the clearing with Nessie, ‘Shut up Leah! We all made a choice, and neither Seth nor I regrets it. You are free to leave whenever you want. You know I won’t force you to stay and fight for something you don’t believe in, but you have to stop taking your frustration out on Seth; he’s nervous enough as it is.’

‘Hey!’ whined Seth. ‘I’m not nervous… I’m just a little agitated is all.’

Leah scoffed but dropped the subject and after a few moments Jacob gave a mental head-nod in approval, his thoughts instantly switching back to Nessie.

Before Seth had a chance to begin worrying anew he felt Jacob’s attention being drawn away from his imprint once more, this time towards Edward, who had turned suddenly away from Bella to face the far end of the clearing. His face held a look of deep concentration and everyone fell silent, waiting for him to speak. Finally, after a few short moments that seemed to drag on forever, Edward turned to look back at Bella, uttering the two words that everyone, vampire and wolf alike, had been dreading to hear.

“They’re coming.”

Jessie: I wrote a review on fanfiction but I thought it would be fitting to write on on here too :) This story was honestly stunning. I am a budding writer myself and to read this- to FEEL this- reminded me of why I am honoured to have this passion and drive for a craft that is just so raw and beautiful.

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...

LouiseJ2: I enjoyed the detail you went into with regards to the case. It made the UNSUB appear believable. The crisis in the middle of the story was my favorite part, very dramatic but not over the top. I feel like sometimes pairings can be overdone but I liked that some of the relationships were a little...
