Chapter 10

I closed the window as the bright sun began to shine through the window of the airport. In the seat in front of me, Felix did the same.

Jane sat next to me, her eyes closed and her face in a faint scowl. I could tell she didn’t enjoy being in a plane next to a whole bunch of humans just as much as me.

We were sitting in the first class section of the trans-Atlantic flight we were on. It was actually very nice. Leather seats, tables, TV’s…

I had to hold my breath for the entire trip, and I was beginning to get uncomfortable. My body wasn’t used to going so long without the extra sense of smell. But I knew that I probably was saving the humans lives as much as mine. I knew that the other members of the guard wouldn’t hesitate in destroying me if needed. I wasn’t special at all. Only Aro would be upset. He was so excited about helping me with my ability.

Instead of concentrating on my discomfort, I tried to concentrate on my gift. In the past few hours I had been able to begin distinguishing my power from my natural instincts. I was beginning to notice the differences. The feeling in the back of my mind compared to the senses of my body.

When the man behind me got up and fell over on his seat onto Jane when the plane hit a bump in the air current, I knew it was my senses that told me it was about to happen. I could feel the air current before the plane shook.

But when the sun came out early as we ascended, it was my gift that told me to cover the window. It wasn’t an instinct; nothing told me the rotation of the Earth.

I concentrated more, and tried to figure out who was in Seattle. A memory came forth of a wild looking female, with fiery hair…

My eyes snapped open. I had already figured out that my gift wasn’t like…Alice’s. My memories and thoughts gave me answers. At least I knew who was there now.

“Jane,” I hissed in a voice too low for humans to hear. She looked over at me in annoyance. “I know who’s in Seattle.”

Her usually dead eyes widened in surprise. “Who?” she hissed back, her voice full of urgency.

“Someone that visited Aro awhile ago, asking to die. Her name is Victoria,” I hissed back. Her eyes narrowed into slits.

Felix and Demetri both heard me and Jane talk. They both turned and looked over their seats at us.

“Demetri, can you track her for us?” Jane demanded. Demetri nodded and closed his eyes. I knew he was using his gift to see where she was.

“She’s in a dark forest, with a large group of newborns,” he muttered quietly. Jane and Felix exchanged dark looks. I could guess they were remembering Mexico.

“Well, at least we know that we’re going to have some fun,” Felix said happily. Jane and I shot him sharp looks. We didn’t need anyone fooling around when we were already outnumbered. Jane would be able to hold most of them down, but it would still be hard. Especially since I still had my newborn instincts.

Well, I thought, at least you’ll get some experience. I would also get to visit my home, and see how everyone was doing. Maybe I would even get to see my father’s grave. I knew it would be hard and sad, but I was determined to have closure with my human life. I had been craving it so much lately. It was faintly irrational, but I needed it all the same.

I cringed, and looked away from the experienced vampires. I knew already that I would visit his grave. I had felt it. But there was something else, deep within me…

Whatever it was, something told me I wasn’t going back to Italy.
