Watching her like this, so loving, I couldn’t believe that I’d tried so hard to stop her becoming like this. I had been wrong, and now I realised why the others had never believed in my losing-the-soul theory. It was because they all had their other half-Carlisle had Esme, Emmett had Rosalie and Jasper had Alice. Love like the love they, and now I, felt, simply required a soul. Without a soul, this love wasn’t possible. I could not believe how perfect this was.
But then Alice burst into the room.
“The Volturi are coming.”
We were alert straight away. True, there was technically nothing they could do to harm us. We had played by their rules, Bella was a vampire. But still, the Volturi frightened me. They had no mercy, who knew what they would decide to do next. Alice’s golden eyes were wide with panic, which scared me even more. If Alice was worried, we were in trouble.
“But I’m one of you now! Won’t they just see that and go away?”
She didn’t believe what she was saying, I could tell. Bella knew the Volturi well enough to know that they always wanted something more.
“When will they be here?” I asked Alice urgently.
She shook her head.
“Two, three days, I don’t know! They keep changing speeds, it’s hard to tell.”
“Get everyone together.”
“Rosalie and Emmett are-“
“NOW ALICE” I roared. I didn’t know why I was so angry. I was just consumed by fear- fear of what the Volturi could do to Bella, even as my mind told me there was nothing they could do. They would surely find something.
When we got downstairs, the entire family were gathered round the main table. Rosalie and Emmett had managed to get back from their hunt, somehow, and they looked very confused. Evidently Alice hadn’t told anyone yet.
Edward strode to the table, with me by his side. I could tell he was worried. I was worried. I knew, or course, that the Volturi shouldn’t be able to do anything to me. I was a vampire now, and I hadn’t done anything to provoke them.
Then why did their very name fill me with fear?
I didn’t know, but I knew enough to trust that fear.
The others seemed to feel the same way, except for Carlisle.
“It’s okay.” He nodded. “They won’t do anything bad. They’re probably coming to check if Bella’s still human. Once they see that she’s not, they’ll just go away. I know it’s earlier than we expected them, but there’s no reason to panic.”
Edward raised his eyebrows.
“The Volturi always want something. Once they see that she’s a vampire, they’ll just ask for something else!”
Carlisle was about to speak, when Alice’s eyes suddenly lost their focus. She gasped, and Jasper was by her side without appearing to move.
“Something happened” she gasped. “I don’t know what. But they changed their plans. Aro, Jane and Dmitri just got on a plane. They’ll be here tomorrow.”
