I couldn’t even sit for more than 5 minutes, I was a nervous wreck.
“Bella, love, you need to calm down. Nothing will happen to you, I promise.” Edward said as I got up from the couch in our room yet again. I paced back and forth, from one side of the room to the other.
“How do you know, Edward?” I shot at him, continuing to pace. All of a sudden I felt myself get shorter, “You changed into Jane again, Bella.” Edward said. Thanks Caption Obvious, I thought. It had been happening off and on for a while. I was scared she was going to hurt Edward, so I always turned into her.
“Sorry.” I said and changed back to myself. Edward let out a sigh.
“How is she doing, Edward?” Alice whispered as she came in and sat next to him.
“How do you think?” Edwards smile was wary as he gestured to me.
“Hmm, and you tried everything?” she asked him, I knew that she meant for Jasper to come in.
“Yes, I tried Jasper; she shot right back up to this as soon as he left. I don’t know what else to do.” He said to her.
Out of the corner of my eye I saw Alice give him a look, and I knew she was saying something to him through her head. I finally sat down on the floor, crossed my legs, and looked at them. They gave me questionable looks, so I spoke up. “Well, obviously Alice had a vision. And you two don’t want me to know about it because then I could get worse.” I stated. Alice looked at Edward, and Edward shrugged. “It can’t get much worse.” He whispered.
“Alright, fine. Aro, Jane, Felix, Demitri, and Alec are the only ones that are coming. They will arrive in five minutes.” She whispered. I got up from my spot and ran downstairs. The family followed me and they all sat in the living room. I, of course, was now pacing in that room.
When Edward arrived I ran to him, and he embraced me. At this moment, I was probably the most scared I had ever been in my life.
“It will be alright.” Edward whispered as he kissed my forehead. I nodded, because usually Edward was right about these things, though i would never admit it.
Suddenly we heard a knock on the door, and I jumped. I looked at Edward, and he looked at me. Carlisle was the only one who was calm, and he went to answer the door. Alice motioned for me to take deep breaths, and I did so. Everyone stood exactly where they were when the knock on the door happened. Esme stood up and waited for what was about to come, she had a worried look to her face.
My teeth snagged on my lower lip as I heard them enter through the door.
“Carlisle, my good friend! Ah, it’s been too long! How are you?” I heard Aro’s voice say as it sounded like they shook hands.
“It’s been long, indeed. I am doing great, Aro.” Carlisle said.
“This is Jane, and Alec, Felix and Demitri.” Aro said to him. As they greeted each other, I knew that Carlisle was trying to be as nice as possible. Emmett stiffened when he heard the name ‘Demitri’.
I gulped as I heard Carlisle invite them into the room we were in. Edward turned me around so I could face them, but kept an arm around my waist, ready to defend me if he needed to. Then, as they turned the corner, I saw all of them. Carlisle went to Esme, and motioned for us all to sit down.
Once Aro saw me, he began to speak. “Bella, you look lovely! I see you kept to the bargain.” Aro said to me, Alice, and Edward. We all nodded stiffly.
“Well, this is great! As you well know, we needed to check and see that Bella was changed, and now that she is, we can put everything from two years ago behind us.” He started off. I raised my eyebrows, but Alice elbowed me, for signaling me not to.
“We do need to be getting back to Volterra as soon as possible, and I request that Bella come with us, just so we can-” Edward cut Aro off.
“No, I don’t think that’s a very good idea.” Edward said. Aro now raised his eyebrows, “Now now, Edward. You did not let me finish. You may come with Bella too. Bella, and if you choose to, Edward as well, will come with us on the next flight to Volterra, or close to it anyways. We will run from the airport to Volterra. All I want to see is her power and talk to you about certain things, and then you can return home if you would like.” He said to Edward, explaining what he wanted us to do.
“And if we don’t want to go to Italy?” Edward asked him. Aro made a glance at Jane-and that’s all he needed to do.
“Excuse us for just a moment.” Edward said grabbing my hand and leading me upstairs.
“Pack a small bag full of whatever you need for two days; we are leaving for Volterra.” Edward said as soon as we were in our room.
“Edward, are you mental?” I hissed.
“We have no other choice, Bella. I do have the option to not go, but I will not leave my wife, I will go with you.” He said. And with that he kissed me, and I kissed him back. It was totally unexpected, but not out of place. It was as if he was saying that he loved me too much to let anything happen to me. I nodded and went to go get a bag. As long as I was with Edward, I was sure to be ok.
