“Calm down. We haven’t seen her since we left. No, Edward is here. When did you say this happened?” Carlisle asked. “Yes, we’ll come and help, of course. Yes, alright, goodbye then.”
I stared him straight in the face, and he refused to make eye contact.
‘Calm. Stay calm. I shall only tell you if you promise to stay calm.’
“Something has happened,” he said out loud quietly. “That was Charlie on the phone, Bella has gone…missing.”
I went stiff when I heard her name. This can’t be happening. “Has she run away, or…?”
Carlisle just shook his head solemnly.
From that moment on, things were just a blur. She wouldn’t break our promise…but what if it wasn’t her fault? Being a danger magnet and all…
I was on the lawn, entering the forest.Why? Why Bella? Why mustn’t anyone just let her live peacefully?
The trees were flashing by.Kidnapping Bella. Why would anyone want to…
I stopped dead.It isn’t just anyone…. I did this to Bella, I brought our world to life for her. It is my fault, all my fault…
I heard my name from a distance, ignoring it I continued. Carlisle would be upset that I broke the promise to stay calm, but that did not matter now. I had to get to Forks, to help track, and hopefully find.
“How long did it take for you to find out? Did they find her, dead, in the forest? Do give the details.” I could hear her sneering as she spat the words.Victoria.
“Yes I, I who you have been ‘tracking’ for the last three months. I Victoria, was involved in the killing of your mate this time. How does it feel? Hmm…?”
“Bella isn’t dead…” I growled.
“Really? You mean to tell me that you are out here because Bella is not dead? That is why you are mad? Well, I seem to have gotten you all wrong then.” her lips curved into a hideous smile.
I wasn’t going to play her game, to give that satisfaction. There was no time to waste, I had to find her.
She continued her conversation. “Aro must have cleaned up well then I’m assuming, I’m not surprised seeing as…”
“Aro had something to do with this? Does he have Bella?” I stepped closer to her, looming over her.
She smiled, “I’m sure he’s already done away with her, less baggage, you know what I mean?”
My hands balled into fists, and my nostrils flared. “No, I have no idea what you could mean by that. Aro wouldn’t just kill someone without a reason…”
Victoria literally laughed in my face, “Oh he wouldn’t you say? Last time I checked, he was a normal vampire, not one of your vegetarians. He practically jumped on the chance to do away with her, didn’t even ask questions. But of course, he trusts me enough not to feel the need to…”
I turned away from her, away from her hideous face and vicious untruthful words. Bella isn’t dead. She couldn’t be…
Carlisle arrived, and I heard her laughing die away as she departed quickly.
“It’s not your fault Edward. You are wrong to think so.” He spoke.
I shook my head violently.
He sighed. “Well, you either pull it together and go with us to Forks, or wander through the forests for the next few days and do nothing to help her. Which will it be?” His voice was stern, “What’s that smell?” he added curiously, but I couldn’t find the strength to meet his eyes. I stared at the snowy grass, so simply beautiful.
“Victoria was here, she gloated, and admitted that she had had Aro do it for her.”
“Aro? I can’t even imagine…”
“Where would he take her? Back to the Italy? Or…” I rushed the words, needing information.
We were in the lawn, facing the ocean. Carlisle stared off into the sunset. The entire beach glimmered, and scarlet beams reflected from the icy shore to the camp. I watched by his side as the sun dropped below the end of the world, causing everything to go dark.
“He wouldn’t take her anywhere…he would just leave,” I heard him choke on the words, “what’s left, there in Forks.”
My insides crumbled, the ash was piling up at my feet and weighing them down. My brain wasn’t functioning, and I wanted to ask ‘did I hear you wrong?’ But I hadn’t. I had heard him crystal clear, and suddenly, my life was like the sunset, so simply beautiful, until it came to the end of the world, where it plummeted, killing all life as I had known it. There was no longer anything to live for, look after, or want but refuse, she was gone, so far gone.
I turned away from him. He had only spoken the truth, yet I hated him for it. No, never, not Bella. Not Bella.
“We need to go. The less time we spend pondering it the better.” he strolled away, probably towards the camp.
‘May I speak with you, Edward?’ I recognized it to be Alice. I nodded, and felt her gently stroke my shoulder.
“What do you want?” I spat the words at her, I knew she didn’t deserve it, but I cared not. I didn’t even bother reading her thoughts, knowing that it must be full of I’m so sorry ’s and other things I didn’t want to hear.
“Bella isn’t dead.” she spoke, “I can see a future for her, you won’t like it, but I see one.”
I whipped around. She’s alive, Bella is alive!
“Why wouldn’t I like it? Anything is better than her death!” I practically screamed the words, every melancholy thought had vanished from my mind.
She sighed, “Don‘t be so sure of that…”
I finally noticed that her face showed no sign of relief, but instead a multitude of pain. “Alice, what has happened to Bella?” my voice had a sudden edge.
She ducked her head, mumbling, “Aro has taken her with him, to the Voltori, because…” her face was sickened. “She’s one of us now.”
