Chapter 29: The Pain of His Heartbreak is Unfathomable
He was sitting in the exact same corner that he had been sitting in since yesterday. I walked over to Leah, “Has he even moved?” she shook her head to कन्फर्म my suspicion. I walked up to him, “Seth?” It was so weird he was looking in my general direction but it was like he looked right through me. “Seth, c’mon, we are going to go see Sienna now.” I said, wondering if he even heard me. Suddenly he snapped out of it and looked at me, “Sienna? How is she?” Jake walked up behind me, “She’s starting to wake up Seth, Come on,” He reached a hand out to help him up and Seth accepted. We walked upstairs behind Uncle Emmett who led the way. My stomach was full of तितलियों I didn’t know what to expect.
The room was dim with the early morning light that filtered through. Aunt Rosalie sat nervously perched on the edge of the hospital bed. When I saw her I gasped. The last that I had seen she had literally been completely broken, not anymore. My Aunt Alice must have dressed her. She was no longer wearing the bloody rags that had been her homecoming dress, she had a pair of skinny jeans, boots and a कमीज, शर्ट with a vest over it; her brown hair lay around her face perfectly. She was already pretty but as a vampire she was breathtaking. Seth didn’t even seem to notice, he ran to her anxiously, “Sienna?” He placed his hands on her face, she stirred slightly. Aunt Rosalie stiffened, her eyes flashing at him, “Careful dog” she snapped. “Baby come on, be nice he is just as worried as we are come on let’s leave them alone,” Uncle Emmett tried to reason with her but it didn’t work. “No Emmett, Seth should have been there! आप should have been watching her,” she shrieked. I stood in shock looking at my aunt. She looked horrible; she had dark purple circles under her black eyes. She was shaking but I couldn’t tell if it was from fury या thirst she hadn’t hunted in days. She looked as though she were having a nervous breakdown. Seth looked down in shame he stood there not knowing what to say या do. Sienna tried to speak at that moment but instead she started screaming and crying. Seth went back to her and tried to comfort her at the same time that my aunt did. I had to say something; my aunt was being beyond unreasonable it wasn’t Seth’s fault he was already beating himself up enough he didn’t need to hear it from her too. I spoke up on his behalf, “Aunt Rose that is not fair. If anything we are all responsible आप cannot blame this on Seth.” She looked at me with a look of horror as a sob slipped out. Uncle Emmett came up to her and placed his arms around her and gently led her out of the room. She collapsed against his side. I had never seen my aunt so weak before, both physically and emotionally and it scared me to the core. “I’m sorry, Sienna I am so sorry.” Seth leaned over her and I noticed he was shaking. He looked into her face and it was then that I saw the tears in his eyes. Jake put his arm around me and led me towards the door. I couldn’t leave the room though; I had to stay with her. Seth rubbed her hair whispered to her, “We will find who did this to you, they will pay I promise आप that. I प्यार you, I am so sorry that I failed you.” His voice broke, it was all I could take I could feel the tears coming back and I swallowed the lump in my throat. Suddenly Sienna gasped and her breathing became extremely labored. Her body started contorting in such a way that it reminded me of a मछली out of water I shivered at the thought. Seth looked at us in panic, “What is wrong with her, what’s happening,” he screamed. “I don’t know” I कहा in worry, “Grandpa!” I shrieked. Everyone came running into the room at that point. My grandfather whisked into the room and placed a stethoscope to Sienna’s chest, “it’s almost time,” he reassured us. He turned to me and Jake, “Nessie, Jake Seth आप are going to have to leave now.” Seth looked up his eyes wild, “No I cannot leave her again.” My mother walked up to him and spoke to him quietly, “Seth, आप have to just for a bit it is not सुरक्षित for the three of आप to be here. I promise I will call Jake the first moment that we know she is calm enough for आप to come back. Please, just do as we ask. She will be ok.” With a look of resignation he turned back to Sienna and brought his face down to hers and kissed her ever so gently but with fervor. “I प्यार आप Si,” he whispered to her, “I’m so sorry.” His voice broke again. “Come on Seth,” Jake whispered as he walked over to help him up. I walked over to her and kissed her forehead, “I प्यार आप my sister, I am so sorry that I couldn’t protect you,” I thought as I placed my hand on her cheek, hoping that my contemplation would get through to her. My father guided me out of the room when we were all in the hallway he turned to us, “I know that this may be difficult but Sienna’s memorial is today at the school. आप all have to go. We cannot afford for there to be any suspicions raised, आप have all been seen with her and आप were the last ones with her that night. I cringed and felt Jake’s arm around me but I got it together. I had to be strong at the very least for poor Seth. “Its ok dad, we can handle it, right?” I looked at Seth; he nodded quietly and headed for the stairs. “I will call Jake when it is सुरक्षित for आप to come back. I want आप to go back to La Push with Jake tonight, just so that आप remain safe.” I looked at him in shock and he looked at both of us seriously, “but absolutely no funny business, do आप hear me? Bella already spoke with Billy, Renesmee is on the couch. Alone. Understood?” I rolled my eyes, “Dad I think that we have bigger problems to worry about.” His grave look did not dissipate as he turned to Jake, “I will know everything that is happening.” Jake looked at him as though he was going to laugh, “I know Edward, I am not even going to respond because आप are being ridiculous. This isn’t the time या place for this discussion; आप should get back in there. आप have my word that your daughter will be safe.” My father looked startled द्वारा the authority in Jake’s voice and then the shadow of an amused smile started to emerge at the corners of his mouth; but it quickly disappeared. He kissed me on the forehead. “Be good, and be sure to hunt आप haven’t in days.” I kissed him on the cheek, “I प्यार आप daddy, be careful and please let me know how she is.” With that my father gracefully slid back into the room and shut the door. Jake took my hand and smiled down at me grimly. I placed my hand on his cheek so that he could see how upsetting the idea of Sienna’s memorial was to me and how worried I was for Seth. He held my hand tightly and we walked out the door into the woods to gather my things.
