10. Chapter 10
Rating 5/5 Word Count 1959 Review this Chapter
I felt the darkness coming over me as I received another vision.
We were standing on some cliffs over looking a beach. Everyone was there. The Cullens, Greg, William, from Greg’s clan, Rebecca and I. Even Sam and Jacob though still in their human forms. We seemed anxious; like we were waiting for something to happen.
All at once everyone’s head snapped towards the tree where a soft noise was coming from. Then something sprang out of the trees, too fast for me to decipher what it was, and hit me on the stomach with so much force we both went flying off the edge of the cliff.
The vision ended and I was back to sitting cross legged on the carpet in Alice’s bedroom. I looked over at Alice. She was sitting in the same position as I but was still rigid and had a blank look washed over her face and eyes. My power was more powerful than hers. I waited patiently for her vision to end though my brow was furrowed from what I had seen.
When Alice did come back, she started at me confused. ‘Oh, great, we have to deal with those werewolves again. I hate this. I wish I could see them. Ugh, this is frustrating!’ Alice thought.
“So,” Becky called from the bed. She had returned to skimming through the magazine. “How’s the future looking?”
“Didn’t you see it too? I mean, your power must have subconsciously taken mine and you should have had the vision too.” I asked her.
“Yes, it did but I pushed it away,” Becky said matter-of-factly. Alice looked at her confused.
“It’s annoying,” I explained to her. “It’s not even her power but she has better control of it. She can choose whether or not she wants the vision. If she doesn’t want it, she can just push it away and not have her body taken over by it like ours does.”
“If you are done complaining about my abilities,” Rebecca injected. “Would you care telling me what you saw that I chose not to?”
“We just saw, you know, the usual. Me getting tackled and falling backward off a cliff.”
“Who did you piss off this time?” Rebecca asked with a smirk.
I made a face at her. “I don’t know. I couldn’t see who attacked me. Did you Alice?”
Alice shook her head. “No sorry, I didn’t see anything. The werewolves must be involved because all I saw as a while blankness,” Her brow creased in concentration. “You can see werewolves?”
I nodded my head. “Yah, another weird thing that’s wrong with my head. Something big must be happening,” I concluded. “Why else would everyone be there?”
“Who else was there?” Becca asked.
“Carlisle, Esme, Rosalie, Emmett, Jasper, Alice, Edward, Greg, William, Sam, Jacob, you, and me. We were all waiting on some cliffs off the coast of Oregon by the looks of it.”
“Hello fourth day,” Becca muttered under her breath.
“What could happen to make us take such precautions?” Alice wondered out loud. We all sat in silence, pondering what would cause that. My thoughts personally were that Becky had insulted or offended (or both) someone and they wanted their revenge and accidentally attacked me, mistaking me for her. Becky did have a history of upsetting people without her even knowing it.
The silence was interrupted when the front door opened and in stepped the rest of the Cullens. “Hello,” Carlisle called out.
“We should tell them,” Alice said in a low voice. Rebecca and I nodded and ran with her downstairs to where the rest of the family was.
The moment we reached them, Jasper turned to us and frowned. He looked at Alice and me and said, “Something has both of you tense; what happened?”
I had blanked and forgot to keep my emotions in check. I also noticed that he didn’t say that there was anything wrong with Becky. The only emotion I felt coming off of her was calmness. I fought rolling my eyes. Nothing ever bothered my sister.
“Did you have a vision?” Edward asked in a slightly frantic voice, suddenly by my side.
Alice nodded gravely. “We, Sam, Jacob, Greg, and another from his coven were all standing on some cliffs somewhere in Oregon. Then something came and tackled Bella, causing both to fall off the cliffs. It moved too fast to identify what it was.”
A deep, furious growl rumbled from Edward’s chest while Emmett scoffed. “Only one thing attacked Bella?” Emmett asked. “That’s nothing compared to what’s been after her before. No reason to freak Ed.” Emmett smacked Edward on the back and Edward gave him a dirty look.
“Regardless,” Carlisle put in. “We should still contact the others you mentioned. We were probably standing on the cliffs to avoid gaining attention from humans. There are also probably precautions we should be taking so we will be more prepared.”
“How do you prepare for something, that you have no clue as to what it is, attack you?” Emmett asked.
“Oh, that’s easy!” Becky reassured him in an upbeat tone. “We can just throw Bella off a cliff so she can practice falling off one,”
I stared at her while Emmett’s booming laugh practically shook the house. Edward growled again in warning.
“Jeez, Edward. I was just kidding. Don’t have a brain hemorrhage.” Becky told him, roller her eyes. This only made Emmett laugh harder while Edward was practically bristling.
“I guess we don’t need to do that to Bells if it prevents Edward from having a stroke,” Rebecca continued. “Besides, she already has the experience from when she was still human and went cliff diving with Jacob in La Push,”
“You did what!?” Edward exclaimed turning to me. Oh God, he really did look like he was going to have a stroke. If he was still human, his face would be purple.
“Uh, it was just recreational. You know, I was just kind of bored and it was fun. It’s what the kids in La Push do when they’re bored.” Edward looked like he wasn’t buying it.
I took a deep breath and said, “So, I should go and call Jake and Sam. So they can know what’s going on,”
“And I should call Greg and William and explain what’s going on,” Becca said. Everyone nodded and then filtered out of the room. Becca pulled out her phone with a sigh and walked into another room.
I also sighed and pulled out my phone. This is what I hated the most about the cursed days. The fact that everyone we knew would always somehow get interlinked into whatever catastrophe hit us next. Knowing people was a complete hazard. First it was the Cullens we were putting in danger, then Charlie dies, and now Greg, Will, Sam, and Jacob.
As I pondered what I should say to Sam and Jacob, I could hear what Becky was telling Greg and William.
“Hi Greg, what is your opinion towards watching people fall off cliffs?” Becky said into the phone, completely skipping all pleasantries. I made a face in her direction. She was over enjoying how funny she thought it is that I’m going to get tackled off a cliff.
“Because,” Rebecca started to answer the question Greg must have asked her. “I was just thinkin’ this Saturday you, me, and a couple of other guys, all watching Bella get pushed off a cliff, quite possibly towards her doom. You in?”
“Yah, April tenth, it’s the fourth day. Maybe if we’re lucky I’ll get thrown off too.” I held in a laugh. I don’t care what Rebecca says but she is a total optimist.
There was a low mumble on the other side of the phone but I couldn’t catch it. Instead I heard Becca’s reply. “That’s fine if you’re serious, just as long as I’m not.” That made me smile. It was something she used to always say to Renee and Charlie whenever they were lecturing her on her behavior or her future and what she was doing with her life. It was always make them more upset with her.
Remembering Charlie reminded me I had a phone call to make no matter how entertaining Rebecca’s was. I sighed for who knew how many times today and scrolled down my contact list to Sam’s number. I desperately wanted to just close my phone but I had to get it done with. So I dialed the number and listened to it ring.
The phone rang twice before Sam’s voice came through the ear piece. “Bella?” His confused question greeted me. “Is everything alright?”
“Hi Sam, and more or less everything is alright.”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, I just had a vision and I was getting attacked. You and Jacob were also there in the vision so I was calling you to see if you were interested in coming with the rest of us. If you come, you might get to fight some vampire.” I tried to persuade Sam into coming and helping us.
“Tempting,” Sam admitted into the receiver. Let me see if Jacob’s got plans. Hold on for a moment.” There was a pause for a few moments. Then Sam’s voice returned. “Jake says he’s free and he’s looking forward towards the possibility of getting to fight some vampires as am I. When do you want us?”
“Well, it happens Saturday so come over to the Cullen’s any time before that.”
“We’ll be there Friday morning if that’s ok.”
“That’s fine,” I reassured Sam. “And Sam, look, I’m sorry for dragging you into this whole mess . . . again.”
Sam laughed once on the other end of the line. “Bella, you need to stop worrying so much. You’re just giving us an excuse to have some fun. Ever since Victoria . . . well you know . . . there haven’t been any vampires coming even close to Forks or La Push. And I regret that so much, what happened with Victoria. That we hadn’t been able to be there and protect y-”
“Sam,” I interrupted. “We’ve been through this before. There was nothing more you could have done for me. And I’ve learned to accept my fate and am fine with it now. I’m grateful for what you and the pack did for me but what’s done is done.”
“But still. Oh well, I guess we’ll be seeing you Friday. Bye Bella,”
“Bye Sam,” I said and hung up. Regardless to what Sam told me, I wasn’t going to stop worrying. Thank goodness I had rock hard nails or else I would be biting them off right now. And so with one conversation, I had doomed my friends to the same fate I had to face.
“You okay Bells?” Emmett asked eyeing me as he walked into the room.
“Yah,” I lied.
Emmett grinned at me, not seeing through my lie. “So what do you want to do?” He asked me with an excited look on his face, probably thinking about the possibilities of what we could do now that I wasn’t a fragile human.
I looked at him thoughtful for a moment before I said, “Why do we go and find some cliffs to throw me off of?” I smiled at him.Emmett’s grin widened and he laughed his booming laugh. He grabbed my hand and said, “Let’s go,” and we ran out of the house, him light hearted and me trying to follow Sam’s advice by trying to stop worrying.
