"Yes," I breathed, wondering why the sudden change of heart.
Then his grip tightened on me again and he wrapped his arms all the way around me. I screamed.
She should have been back by now.
I was worrying, but when the newborns asked nervously where she was, I assured them it was part of the plan. With my abilities, I had altered the newborns so they were sensible fighters and didn't rely on instincts. They could act civil, and there had been no fights, thank goodness.
These newborns had only the best powers, because Jane picked them. However, almost none of the Volturi was loyal to Jane. Most feared her. Except for Lizzie.
With her whole mind unlocked, she was deadly. It was hard to think hours before, I had pictured her with blue eyes and a lollipop. When I asked her why she didn't feed on an animal before we left, she replied though she was forced to drink the human's blood, she would take advantage of the situation and not have the human's life wasted.
I admired her for that. She was compassionate, but equally witty and she would do what's needed to be done.
She was a leader. Tough, yes. But I knew that was the treatment she received from the Volturi.
She should have been back by now.
I look anxiously out into the sky, as if expecting her to pop up in front of me...but that was feasible.
Still, it didn't happen.
There was a scream off in the distant forest, but we could hear it fine.
"Why didn't you tell me?!" I spun around to Alice, who had been edgy the past few minutes. Now I knew why.
"LIZZIE?!" Emmett roared looking from Alice to me to the forest.
"Edward's KILLING her?!"
He was gone.
I walked into her room, and she isn't here. Why didn't she just teleport back?
I pulled my cell phone out of my pocket and dialed her number.
A ringing sound chimed behind me. I turned slowly, then let out a vicious growl.
"Lizzie!" I wrapped my arms around her and hugged her tight. She screamed.
"I'm not letting go."
I wasn't going to. It was her, I could see it in her eyes. Underneath the wounds, and the hurt, and everything, it was her. Buried deep down.
She wrapped her arms around me and hugged me back, her black hair turning the white I hadn't seen in a long long time.
"Edward," She sobbed tearlessly. She remembered.
"I love you," I said. My sister was back. Not just my sister, but the closest thing to a sister I had ever had.
My family still loved me. At least, Edward did. My hair was glowing the color I had seen only in my restored memories.
Something hit my ribcage and I knew that the others hadn't forgiven me. I was done.
I darted through the forest, hoping I wouldn't be too late. I saw Edward, arms around her tightly. He was trying to crush her.
I rammed into the pair of them, hard, knocking her from his arms.
"Edward! How could you?!" I growled at him and he met my lividness with an ecstatic stare.
"Emmett! Lizzie's back!"
"Then why were you---"
"I was hugging her you idiot."
I turned to Lizzie and scooped her up into my arms, holding her like a princess. I kissed my baby sister on the forehead, vowing I wouldn't let ANYTHING happen to her. Never again.
Emmett refused to let go of me. Edward wouldn't either, for that matter. Heck, Alice kept an unbreakable hold on my foot and Bella just jumped right in my lap!
I basically, didn't know where I was, I was just covered in bodies.
"Can't....BREAHTHE." I choked to Emmett.
"I don't care. You don't have to," his muffled reply came from somewhere three feet above. Who was on top of me?
I disappeared, rolling onto the ground and closing my eyes. I smiled in my little stupor and rolled behind a bush where I appeared and yawned.
"THIS WAY!" I heard Edward yell. They all peeked over the bush where I was resting, their eyes filled with emotion. Except for Jasper, who looked like he was gonna have a brain hemorrhage....or cry.
She was so beautiful, her hair still floating white around her face. She looked utmost content, and I wished more than anything to cry.
My daughter had come home.
She was gorgeous, I didn't even comprehend what the red eyes meant. Not now. I didn't want pain when all I had room for was joy.
Welcome home, baby girl.
She was my sister....I don't know if I should say this but more-so than Alice because of one thing. Or maybe, she had a more human sisterhood bond with me. And it was because of Jacob.
My baby, wolf-loving sister.
I had never been a big brother....in the protective way. My vampire sister's could take care of themselves. When she had been human, I had been to harsh on the boys who were taken by her. I never gave her a chance to be human, and even though that moment is gone, I still treat her like she is the most fragile. Despite the fact she is more lethal than all of the vampires put together.
My baby sister.
Even though her eyes were closed, seemingly oblivious, she addressed me.
I love you, Edward.
Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And thank you Edward, for seeing her, through all the pain. You saw her. And now she is ours.
Welcome home, love.
I couldn't even gather my own thoughts to say something to her. The emotions around me caused my head to expand.
I'm surprised I didn't die.
I sent all of the love in my head, her way. So much, that her hair stood on end and her eyes snapped open to stare at me.
Thanks, she mouthed.
I smiled. My sister.
I would rip anyone to shreds if they uttered one word against her. Sure, the love was overwhelming me, but more than anything, I wanted to tear multiple vampires to pieces. My muscles in my arms quivered and stretched.
I saw her watching me stare out into the woods determinedly and I smiled in her direction, as my eyes searched the forest.
My sweet, baby sis.
My baby sister was back. I loved her so much. She was as gorgeous as me. I felt no jealousy, just love and excitement.
Lizzie brings out the best in people. That was my baby girl.
My family was here. I loved them so much. But I had to help Cne.
I casually glanced at Edward.
Do you trust me?
He stiffened, but relaxed, trying not to draw attention. He casually looked up and looked down while rubbing his face.
Good. I need to go. I'll be back.
He pursed his lips but didn't protest. I stood up and looked directly at Edward. "Tell the others." I immediately unblocked my mind and his eyes widened. I nodded at him.
"We'll be landing here."
A harsh wind, and I was lounging in the aisle of the plane, arms crossed, leaning against the wall.
"Were have you been?" Cne tried to hiss quietly but with my appearance all conversation ceased. Her words echoed through the cabin and all that could be heard was the soft whirring of the engine.
I smiled casually, but inside my n=mind was racing.
Tell her? Are you sure you're family won't kill the newborns when they see them? Will they not trust me?
"Found a spot to land," I replied. Not lying.
"She's lying," A newborn girl muttered from the back.
I winced and mentally slapped myself. Dang it. Her power.
Cne turned to me, turning the plane on auto-pilot to keep it's steady pace.
"I met my family..." I trailed off.
Cne's face softened as the suspicion melted away.
"And?" she asked gently.
I grinned. "At first I thought Edward was trying to kill me he was hugging me so hard."
At first he was going to kill me, I added mentally.
I gave Cne the directions for where to land. Time to go see my family.
Her cell phone was here.
So was Cne's. Cne was gone. She wasn't supposed to be gone.
"Jane!" Alec came running into the room. "The newborns are gone!"
"Well," I smiled evilly. Alec's eyes widened in surprise as he writhed on the floor. I NEVER punished him.
"Apparently they are staging a revolt." I grinned at Alec. "And the traitors will die one by one."
