I picked up my angel, elated that I was with her. I was completely content until I noticed the bite mark on her jugular. Amazingly, she was unconscious, so she didn't feel the agony of the transformation. I had never heard of anything like that happening before. Out of the corner of my eyes, I could see Alice destroying the newborn, Gianna.

"It's too late to even consider trying to suck the venom out of her blood, Edward," Alice thought.

I could now smell the horrid stench of burning vampire. There was a column of dark purple smoke where Gianna had been a moment ago.

"Very good. You may now join the Volturi." Aro had appeared out of nowhere. "Oh! Alice! How good it is to see you again! Would you like to join too?" How could Aro still be hopeful about Alice? She was never going to accept. Then again, Aro was always hopeful.

"No thank you, I'm content with my life now," she replied happily, not once hinting what she was really thinking.

"And you, Edward?" Aro turned to me, hope in his milky eyes.

"Edward, Black imprinted. Bella still loves you. Don't join, it'll kill her!" Alice's thought made my dead heart leap.

"No thank you, my reason for joining is no longer extant."

Aro nodded his head. "I also see that someone has bitten Bella. I presume it was Gianna, since neither of you have red eyes. Now we don't have to check on her...unless she is too bloodthirsty." I shuddered at the thought of Bella, my Bella being a bloodthirsty vampire.

With that being said, Aro disappeared.

I carried Bella at vampire speed to the airport in Rome. Alice was able to dazzle our way onto a plane, without any questions asked about Bella. I held her as close as was possible when sitting in airplane seats. I traced her face many times over, relearning it.

Bella hadn't changed much in two years. Her skin was still smooth, her face flawless, and her hair was as shiny as ever. But there was the possibility of that being the transformation.

"EDWARD!" Alice screamed in her head.

I moved my head slightly in her direction; she knew that it meant that I was listening.

"Oh! Bella is going to be so beautiful! I hope Rosalie looks good in green! Don't even try to see what she's going to look like in my mind, or else I'll..." I quickly tuned out when "I am slowly going to crazy, 1 2 3 4 5 6-switch. Crazy going slowly am I, 6 5 4 3 21 -switch," filled her mind. That had to be the worst song in the history of the world. She could be so annoying, and she was able to do so to me in the worst way possible as well.

"Oh Edward, the family is going to be at the terminal, just to let you know," Alice thought before she went back to that horrendous song.

When we finally arrived, I immediately saw the rest of my family. All their thoughts were centered around Bella's wellbeing and what had happened. Then, I noticed an unfamiliar voice in all of their heads. It thought:

"We are fine. Everything is fine. Please don't worry about me." Then it clicked. Bella! She was the one who had answered all of their questions. I guess we had just found her power.

"Was that Bella in my head?" Emmett asked. He didn't look so happy with that thought.

"Yes, it was me." Bella's eyes had opened. Her transformation was over.

Now everything was right with the world...for now.
