"Why must I give up on what I want? What do you have to sacrifice? Why is it only me that has to suffer and give up everything I have?" After the death of Victoria's mate, James, she goes to the Volturi. She tells them of the girl who knows their kind and the shifters that protect her. When two of the beast guards are sent to retrieve Bella, they have no choice but to drag yet another human into their world. I own all this story except for the original twilight characters.
