This story was set after the final meetings of the Cullens and the Volturi (Breaking dawn Part 2)
Heavy snows kept on falling that night. The pathway through the forest looks impossible to run in when the trees look as if it getting closer every second as the snow starts to pile up. Liliane kept on running as fast as she could. Even as a vampire, she knows her strength is depleting after the fight and kills she had to make just so she can saved herself but most importantly, her precious daughter. She knows how weak she was and her bare feet is starting to ache. She can still hear the whisper of the bloody demon, "No matter where you are Liliane, I'm going to find you, traitorous bitch!"
No one has ever defeated Aro and with what that is left of her, she knows that she'll be dead for sure. Her feet slipped on the root of the big pine tree just beneath her and she fell with a great thump, rolling down the hills but she kept on holding her baby as hard as she could, not letting a scratch on her wee body.
For the first time, tears start to flow as she lay there and cried after recalling scene of her mate beheaded in front of her because he tried to protect his family. Even their own house was burnt to ashes. It was never big but small enough with all the things that they needed. It was perfect and she cherished every moment her family has spent in their home. Oh, Gareth.. I missed you. What must I do now? . She kept a strong hold of her daughter and shushes her gently as her baby starts to cry. Liliane kissed her forehead and press her cheeks to her baby plump cheek while she sobs, "Forgive me my love. What kind of a mother am i? I can't even protect your father and now he's gone. I'm a disgrace. "Liliane wiped her tears stained cheeks and continued, "I promise you I will protect you will all my heart even if i have to die."Liliane kissed her cheeks and try to stand and ran as fast as she can.
Unfortunately, Aro has caught up with her and he stands in front with Caius by his side and Jane, Alec, Demetri, Felix and the rest of his most trusted guards surrounding her. She knows that Marcus must be near the trees, hiding himself and watch as the event that was going to occur in front of him. The fears overcomes Liliane is no match for the protective instinct that she carries on her breast even though she knew that there was nothing she could do right now then accept her death but the wailing of her child creates a stir in her heart, knowing that her daughter must survive. They cannot have her!
Aro gave her a smirk and march slowly in front of her,"I see you and that mutt has create a life together. I didn't know such things ever exist. Who knows that even animals and a vampire can have a child? This is so much better than the Cullens isn't it? How precious." He clasped his hands together and smiled at her. "Just let us go Aro and I swear to you that you won't ever see us again. Let me and my daughter lived or i promised you I will destroy each and every one of your so called 'family'."Liliane hissed at the last word. If looks can kill, Aro would have died looking at her blood red eyes, warning him not come closer.
She can hear the chuckles in everyone around her except from Caius who stood there looking at her with rage. He said, "Filthy whore! You dare to threaten us after committing a heinous act with those animals. How dare you betray your own coven?"
"My bloody coven that exiled me and killed my own mate in front of me ?!All I ever did was falling in love with my mate and wanted to live a better life. What crime has I commit?!" Liliane screamed with tears flow down her cheeks. Silence was in the air. "I gave you my allegiance and done many things for this coven! I obeyed your every word and I have proved myself worthy of your presence and all I ask is to leave just so I can lived with my mate doesn't matter if he's a werewolves or not! I chose to leave so I won't shame my coven but you chose to betray me and killed my mate and now me?!How dare all of you!
Aro once again smirked and said, "Now, now brother. Settle down. Liliane is always part of the family." He turned to Liliane and said ,"Blood is thicker than water isn't it? You see, cara. What you have done has already shaming the whole coven by mating with werewolves. Words spread around very fast and we don't want that do we now? Moreover, you know the relationship that we have with them is not what i called as 'pleasant'. As much as I have adored you for your sacrificed to this coven, you must be punished and with that you must die."
Aro turned to his guards as they marched to Liliane with murderous look. Liliane raised her other hands that is not holding the baby and the trees around her moved and huge branches crashed into the guards. She was grateful that at least her gift still works no matter how weak she was. Each one of them that jumps onto her was quickly avoided and she hit them with full force. Angelique cries was in the air and Liliane was getting weaker as she had to kill every last one of the guards.
Suddenly, a stabbing pain filled her and she screamed in pain as the guards that attack her stop and saw Jane gazing at her. Liliane whimpered in pain as she slowly knelt to the ground and hugs her baby with her remaining strength. The baby cries louder as tears of her mother pain drips upon her forehead.
Liliane by DNSUnlocker"> puts her baby down and hold her heads trying to withstand that awful pain but Aro was already stood in front of her, grinning. "This is a fine sight to look at. Farewell, cara." Aro hold her head and neck and swiftly snapped her head as she fell down to her death. The wailing of the baby stir Aro's mind as he bent down and stare at the baby. He cradled her gently. He was stunned to see the baby has blue eyes as her father but golden strands of hair as Liliane. "For such a dirty creature, you sure are beautiful. Now what am i going to do with you." Curiosity filled Aro and he grin.
Aro raised his hand higher while his other hand holding the baby. He was about to strike her when Marcus stood next to him and hold his hands. Everyone was stunned but kept their mouth shut." I think I have something in mind for her." Marcus stares at the baby and warmth filled his lonely soul. He gently cradled the baby and kept her near to his chest.
Caius looked angry and said, "What in hell do you mean? That child is an abomination and must be destroy. It is enough to have that child of Cullens lived but this, this is too much, Marcus! "Marcus answered while kept on brushing the baby forehead gently as if she was his own." What I do is not in your hand to be judge or decide. I want to keep this child and raised her as mine. You do not have a say in this. As one of the leader of our coven, it is my decision and whatever you must say will only be heard but not do."
Marcus walks away heading deep in the forest and the baby starts to whimper softly as she lays her head on Marcus chest. Caius was infuriates and when he tries to walk towards Marcus, Aro hold his shoulder and said, "That is enough, brother." Caius pushed his hand angrily and said, "No! I will rip the life of that child with my bare hands. I will not allow to see her lived among us. I _" Aro disrupt him, "Do you want our brother to abandon this coven, Caius?"
Caius silenced. "You knew how much Didyme's death has affect Marcus but for a second, I see warmth in his eyes after centuries. If he chose to keep that child, then be it. We must not interfere. At least our brother will live again than being an empty soul. Who knows what might happen if anyone harms that child."
Fear built up in his chest listening to Aros words. The last time his brother have to dealt with his loved one death was not a sight to be seen. Bloods, flesh and dead bodies splattered everywhere and for a second, it was the devil himself stood in front of him.
"I understand, brother." Caius walks towards the dark forest followed by Aro and the rest of the vampire when Jane notices her brother stood behind, "What's wrong." Alec answered in a soft tone, "Nothing." He starts to follow his sister and went in to the forest quietly .
After arriving at Voltera, Marcus brought the child into a room which he had his people to prepare for the arrival of his new life. The rooms was decorated to his taste .White and red all over, just as his late wife have always wanted but with soft arrangement and a cradle situated at the heart of the room and the curtains at each sides of the cradle. Dolls were arranged on a shelf near the walls and toys were arranged around the room to make it more comforting for the baby to be in.
He laid the sleeping baby to her cradle and brushed her cheeks as she whimpered in her sleeps and by DNSUnlocker"> put her small fist in her mouth. Marcus remembered the gentle whispered of Didyme in his thought, saved him, my love. She is innocent. Take care of her and loved her as she was ours. Marcus knew how much the baby meant to him. She has soft golden hair and beautiful blue eyes but her looks remind him to his beloved wife. Something stirs in his heart and he knew that he must protect this baby. She is his and he swore to protect her with his life. It was the least he can do after he failed to protect Didyme.
He kissed the baby's cheek and whispered, "I shall name you Angelique and you are my child."
