Chapter 15

Jane raised her eyes at me. “I take it none of the Cullens were there?” she asked lightly, taking in my staggered appearance. I nodded quickly, apology in my eyes.

“I thought…I was sure that…I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have run off like that. It wasn’t very wise to do,” I said quietly, filling my voice with remorse. I had been sure someone was there.

“It’s alright,” Demetri said, trying to calm me down. “You’re still getting used to your gift. You’ll be mixed up for awhile, until you learn to tell the difference between your gift and your instincts.”

“Be that as it may,” Jane said in a hard voice, looking at me severely. “You must be more careful. If you run into trouble when you run off, you risk the rest of us and our mission.”

“Yes Jane,” I said quietly, bobbing my head at her in respect.

Jane nodded at me, and then turned to Demetri. “Have you traced down where Victoria and her army are?” she asked quickly and sternly. I guessed she was starting to get bored with what was happening.

Demetri nodded. “Just outside of Seattle, it seems. I think they’re staying there for fresh food,” he told her quietly.

A shiver went down my spine. That was another reason I didn’t kill humans. I didn’t want to treat them like cattle for the slaughter. I had been a human less than half a year ago, and I wasn’t going to allow myself to lose my humanity.

But as I thought about what Demetri said, something came to my mind. A red light, followed by a crowd of people running in the woods, coupled with the feelings of anger and bloodlust.

“They’re going to come here,” I said, more to myself than to the others. But Jane and Demetri heard me, and both turned to me sharply.

“They’re what?”

I looked into the trees. “They are going to come here, to try and see if my scents here now. They think I left town, but was going to come back. She’s bringing all the newborns with her to check.”

Jane looked at me through narrowed eyes. “So you’re basically saying that we should just wait here until they come?” There was something in her eyes that said she didn’t like that plan. I knew it had to do with her promise to the wolves of following my diet instead of her normal one.

“Yes Jane, that is exactly what I’m saying,” I replied coldly. I wasn’t going to let her dietary needs get in the way of what was needed to be done. She may be in charge of me, but I was entitled to my own rights.

She scowled deeply. Demetri, who wasn’t here for our agreement with the wolves, was confused. “What’s so wrong about waiting here? I mean, it is easier to hide in the woods than in the city.”

Felix, who had remained unmoving during our discussion, finally sighed. “Because, we promised those filthy dogs that we would only drink from animals,” he said darkly.

Demetri’s eyes widened in disgust. “We can’t have any human blood? But only Bella can…” he trailed off, meeting my patient gaze. He looked down.

“You know, I’m only a newborn and I can handle this diet. How old are you? I think you can handle a few days without killing someone,” I said reasonably.

“You make it sound like we’re committing a crime by feeding ourselves,” Felix muttered under his breath. My gaze hardened as I turned to him.

“This isn’t the time for a debate on what we should eat for the rest of our lives,” Jane snapped. We all looked down, ashamed that we let that get in our way. “Now, if any of you were paying attention, you would notice someone was coming.”

We all looked up, searching through the darkness with our keen eyes. I saw movement in the trees. Someone was trying to get past us, moving fast enough to be a vampire. They obviously didn’t want to deal with the Volturi.

Demetri and Felix both pulled up their hoods, and motioned for me to do the same. I pulled the grey material over my head, pulling it down far enough so my face was obscured by shadows. Jane did nothing.

“Whoever is out there, I am telling you now to come here. This is your first and only warning,” she said in a voice that made it painfully obvious why she was the leader. The power had every warning of the pain that would come if disobeyed.

“Don’t worry. You don’t need to threat us,” a familiar painful voice from the gloom. A short figure walked forward, followed by three tall shadows. If it came to a fight, it would be equal.

“Who are you and what are you doing here?” Jane asked coldly.

“I’m Alice Cullen,” she said, stepping forward so we could see her short black hair and pixie-like features. “And those are my brothers, Emmett and Edward, and my mate Jasper.”

I went stock still. They were right there, in front of me. My instincts had been correct when I felt they were there. Half of my old family was standing in front of me. From under his cloak Demetri sent me a warning glance that was painfully clear.

I belong with the Volturi. I can’t let them know who I am.
