A fierce growl erupted from me, and suddenly all I was aware of was Victoria pushing me into the ground, trying to claw of my arms as I held her back. I snapped at her, my teeth almost getting the flesh of her neck. She pulled back right before I could bite her head off, and roughly kicked me as she hopped up.
I followed, almost seeing what she was about to do in my head right before she did it. A blow to the left, the right, a high kick to the side. I dodged them all, and attacked in the openings she left.
It was obvious that she was growing more and more frustrated as she was unable to hit me. Finally, she dove at me with a wild howl, and she pulled me down before I could move.
I felt a sharp pain and heard a small pop as one of my fingers flew off my hand as she clawed at me. I snarled loudly, and successfully bit one of her arms out. With a howl, she bit at my neck. I moved, and my teeth clamped around her neck. I bit down, and I felt it come up and out.
A slight whimper came from her head as it rolled away, orange hair still waving in the wind, shimmering like the fire in the clearing behind us. It finally came to a stop a few feet away from the fire, where it was sharply kicked by Felix as he tore apart another newborn. Relief pulsed through me as I thought the fight was over.
I totally forgot about the body.
Strong hands gripped my neck and began to viciously tug in an attempt to do to me what I had done to it. I was too shocked at first to move myself in an attempt to throw of Victoria’s body. I didn’t know vampires could act without a head.
Finally, my instincts caught up with me and I put my hands up and tried to rip off the steel grip on my neck. It was amazing that now, without thoughts of revenge polluting her thoughts that Victoria seemed close to her real goal.
A vicious snarl came out of nowhere and threw of the body, simultaneously knocking me to the ground as well. I let out a gasp and I jumped up quickly, tensed to fight. But when I saw who was in front of me, I froze.
Emmett Cullen violently tore at the headless body, while Jasper pulled out a match quickly and set fire to the remains as they were thrown to the ground. Alice was carefully watching the other members of the Volturi. Edward only stared at me, relief strong in his features, as well as a small amount of regret. I stared back at him blankly, refusing to show the happiness I got in seeing him, as well as the pain of knowing he wasn’t mine.
“They’re almost done,” Alice whispered, still watching Felix, Demetri and Jane destroy the newborns. There was a look of almost hatred on her face as she watched them, which I didn’t understand. The Volturi were the peacekeepers, the ones who made our world a safer place to live in. Why would she hate them?
Emmett, who had finished destroying the body, stood up with a scowl. “Too bad Carlisle couldn’t come with us; he was friends with Aro. They probably would listen better to him than to us.”
Alice nodded. “And I’m sure Aro would be quite interested in our abilities. A physic, a mind reader and an empath. And whatever Bella can do,” she added, nodding to me.
I stared at her in bewilderment. Why would she group me with her family? I wasn’t part of it anymore; it had been that way since they left me alone in Forks. I was now apart of the Volturi anyway. It’s not like I would want to leave to become just another nomad, like the burning corpse at our feet.
“Bella.” It wasn’t a question so much as a command. Out of habit, I immediately stiffened and went to Jane where she was waiting with Felix and Demetri. Her face was smooth, expressionless.
“Yes Jane?” I asked carefully, reminding myself that she was my leader on this trip. No matter how much I preferred to be with the Cullens—as if they wanted me with them—I had to be here, with her.
“Where were you? You should have been here, helping us dispose of the newborns. Not wandering around in the woods.” Her voice had a bit of petulance in it now, and I tread on carefully, knowing her temper went with the young age she had been turned. She had never been able to develop a better sense of maturity because of the age she had been turned.
I spoke calmly and soothingly as I answered her demanding questions. “I was taking care of the creator, Victoria. Her ashes are burning in the forest right now.”
Felix looked amazed. “You took care of fully mature vampire?” he asked in amazement and disappointment. I knew that he was the fighter in this group, and that he had been hoping to destroy Victoria.
Demetri raised his eyes at me. “But it would seem you had a little help from the Cullens. I can smell them standing near the fire.” He gestured with his chin to the direction I knew they were.
Jane smiled wickedly. “So it would seem they didn’t heed my warning. Maybe they need a little punishment.” I knew at once that she meant her gift for burning people with her mind.
And I knew I wasn’t going to let her.
