Even In Death Chapter 11

Chapter 11 – Fight On
Even if our spirits are broken,
let's confront it!
Single-mindedly, let's fight on
with our fists more... with our spirits more...
with making all sharper.
Still more, let's fight on
even if we get sad and unable to stand up
“Karate” by BABYMETAL
(roughly translated from Japanese to English via A-Z Lyrics)

“Here, Edward,” Bella said softly against my forehead. “Carlisle said it’s time for you to take these.”
“M’kay,” I mumbled, sitting up and rubbing my face. “Any news?”
“Not yet.”
I blindly took the pills and the bottle of water she was handing me. It had been two days since the Denali family had shown up and three days since the Cullens had laid out the trap that should’ve led Victoria and whatever army she’d built straight here. My house in the city was closed up, making it look like there hadn’t been anyone home in a week. Carlisle had deemed me too sick to work, so I was excused from the hospital, which meant I’d been pretty much trapped inside the Cullen home, specifically Bella’s bed, the whole time.

Even In Death Chapter 10

Chapter 10 – Together We’re Invincible
Follow through
Make your dreams come true
Don't give up the fight
You will be alright
'Cause there's no one like you in the universe

Don't be afraid
What your mind conceives
You should make a stand
Stand up for what you believe
And tonight
We can truly say
Together we're invincible
“Invincible” by Muse
EDWARD
A low, rumbling growl emanated from Steve as he stayed perched on my chest. His eyes were dark, his ears back, but his paws gripped my sweatshirt fiercely as we sat around in the Cullen’s living room.
“Easy, buddy,” I whispered to him. When he spun his yellow-green gaze my way, a purr starting up softly. He’d had the shit scared out of him, and since I was the only one in the room he could rely upon, he was clingy.
That last thing bothered Bella a bit, but she understood it. She gazed worriedly at the two of us from across the room, but her eyes were warm, lighter. Even her mood was a bit more controlled since our shower upstairs, and a part of me was proud that I could merely help her in some way. It was hard watching my strong, smart wife second-guess herself over just about every-damn-thing. Before, she would make decisions and never look back, but now she was unsure over her own thought processes. Carlisle said hunting helped her but that I helped her more. I hoped that was true, because as out of my element as I felt, I needed to do something for my Bella. And if touching her, giving her pleasure helped, then I couldn’t exactly complain.
