So here I am…sitting alone in my dark room again. It’s been like this ever since Aro’s dumb “race” started. Troy and his family have been searching for the Cullen’s for the past two months. Thankfully he has yet to find them. However, last week he caught one of their scents near Alaska and so their entire family left to join him leaving me here alone in Italy.
I don’t mind being alone. Over the past two months I have grown quite accustomed to talking to myself and to my own thoughts. Troy doesn’t take me with his family as they search for the Cullen’s. He knows that if they were to find them I would do everything I could to get them free, in fact I already have done that. So here I sit, alone in my dark room with only my thoughts of what has happened to me, to my life, and to what I use to know to be true.
“Jay!” Troy was back and was calling my name from the hallway. He was home early, way too early for it to be a good thing. I quickly stood up and rushed to the door. He was standing in front of me with a smile on his face. “We found them!” The way his voice sounded indicated that I should be happy about this news.
“What?” That was all I could manage. Maybe I misunderstood. Maybe I was in a memory or something but all I knew is that he couldn’t find the Cullen’s. They left Maine like I told them to and I haven’t had contact with them since. How could he find them?
“We know where they are and you are coming with us to retrieve them!” He smiled at me as my face revealed the horror as to what he was asking me to do. He wanted me to be there, to most likely hold his hand as he brought the Cullen’s in.
“No!” I turned back into my dark room and tried to slam the door behind me but I heard it snap open as I tried to run back into the shadows of my room.
“Yes!” He rushed forward and grabbed my arm, turning me around to face him. He took my other wrist in his and he started at me.
“Why are you doing this? You are breaking your promise! I’ll…I’ll leave if you go after them!” I didn’t have anything else to yell at him. I knew he would never let me leave now but I wasn’t going to allow him to go after Edward, Bella, Alice and the others without at least trying to put up a fight.
“Ha! I am doing this for our future. Think of it guards for the Volturi! As for that ‘promise’ I made you. I am not breaking it. Bella will be brought to Italy alive what happens once here is not my fault.” He bent down as if to kiss me. I struggled out of his hold and pushed him away from me.
“I will NOT go with you!” I knew that I couldn’t stop him from going after the Cullen’s but I refused to witness it.
“Yah but dear, you don’t have a chose!” He began to walk toward me again and I backed away until I was up against my couch. I fell and was sitting facing him as he moved ever closer to me.
“I…I wont let you!” I bowed my head and began to focus on Edward’s mind. I drew up an image in my head of a white room and started to move forward and backward on the couch, slipping even closer to the memory and to Edward’s mind. I have to warn him. My face stung with a slap as it moved to the left sharply.
“No! Wouldn’t want you to warn Edward now would we?” He had slapped me and I just glared up at him again before focusing once more on Edward’s mind. I had to get some kind of message out to him. I had to at least tell him to move! At least give him some pre-warning. I felt myself moving threw the air before I realized what had happened.
“Ow!” I hadn’t meant to say anything but as I made contact with the far wall I couldn’t help but allow myself to cry out in pain. Troy rushed forward to me bending down in front of me. He glared at the doorway where Cole was standing with a smile on his face.
“Love are you ok?” Troy took my hand and began to kiss it. I pulled it away from him and stood up glaring at both of them. “Cole I had everything under control you didn’t need to do that.” Cole just smiled and walked out of the room. He had used his power of moving stuff with his mind to fling me across the room. “Don’t try to contact Edward or any other Cullen again or else the Volturi will just have to deal with the Cullen’s dead.”
“I’m not going with you!” I walked away from where he was still bent down toward my bathroom. I felt myself being turned around and realized that Troy had grabbed me again. “Just leave me alone!” I slapped him across the face. He smiled at me and his eyes turned evil. Their red irises shinning more brightly then I had ever seen them before. I began to back away even faster from him. I was scared of him for once. I hadn’t meant to hit him and he was drawing ever closer to me.
“Now that wasn’t smart was it?” He was whispering at me but I heard every word. I kept backing up until I hit the wall. The bathroom was so close to me just five feet to the right. I looked into his eyes and saw him getting into a crouch. I had to make my move for that door. I jumped as far as I could manage but I felt something hit me in the back and I flew into the floor with a loud thunders sound. I was flipped so my back was on the ground and I was facing what had just hit me.
“What are you going to do?” I knew I couldn’t get away from Troy. He was sitting on top of me and even during one of my best days he was stronger then me. He just smiled at me. My arms were pinned by my sides by his legs that were squeezing me.
“Get a room!” April had walked into my room and saw us lying on the floor of my bathroom.
“We are in a room!” Troy responded with a laugh before looking back down at me. “I wasn’t going to do this to you but you need to learn your place. The Cullen’s will hate you!” He got off of me and I just sat there.
Why would they hate me? What was he planning on doing? “Why?!” I needed to know what he was going to do.
“Ha! They will hate you with ever fiber of their beings. You’ll see!” He smiled brightly at me and I pushed myself off of the floor and starting to run at him before thinking about what I was doing I was on top of him scratching at him.
“Don’t you dare! Leave them alone! I love them! You can’t!” I felt two strong arms grab my forearms even though I was fighting I was easily pulled off of a stunned Troy. I had never acted this way and he was caught of guard for my attack. I was struggling against what was holding me in vain.
“Thank you Cole. That was…unexpected.” Troy stood up from the ground and brushed off his back. I was still thrashing against Cole as Troy strode up to me and smiled. “You will come or I will kill each and every Cullen.” He bent down and kissed my forehead and I stopped struggling. There was nothing I could do. I was caught between a hard place and a rock. “Very good!” Troy grabbed my hand and Cole let me go.
“I don’t like you.” I whispered to Troy as he led me out of my dark room and into the bright hallway.
“You don’t have to, you just have to be scared of me and have no where else to go.” He turned his head to look at me and smiled. I glared back up at him as we made our way down the hallway.
“I’m not scared of you and the Cullen’s will take me in!” I knew I shouldn’t have said anything because he turned to face me. We stopped walking in the middle of the hallway. I could feel his family behind me. Troy smiled and before I could take in what was happening I was thrown against the wall with Troy pinning me there.
“Trust me the Cullen’s wont want you and you will be scared of me soon enough.” He took his hands and placed them on my cheeks making it impossible for me to move my head. He bent down his face and placed his lips against mine. I was tempted to bite him but knew that Cole was behind him waiting for me to react so he could hit me. “Very good Jay. I think we are learning.” Troy pulled away from me. I simply bowed my head as he dropped his hands from my head and interlaced his figures with my right hand.
“To the Cullen’s house!” Emily was skipping beside me and Troy as we began to walk again. I didn’t say anything or even look up. There was nothing I could do. I was a prisoner and I was about to condemn my only friends in the world. I could try to reach Edward again. I didn’t need to sit to reach him it just made it easier.
Edward? Edward please hear me! Edward? I was screaming in my mind. My eyes were open but were glazed over. I had my head tilted down so Troy wouldn’t be able to see my eyes but Mike must have been listening because Troy slapped me again.
“DON’T or I will kill EVERY single one of them in front of you!” He spat his words at me. I tilted my head up to look at him and whispered, “If I warn them then you cannot find them.” I smiled at the thought. I had found a loophole. His threats were worthless. He couldn’t do anything to them if I warned them because he wouldn’t be able to find them. My smile grew larger and his face was drawn out. He had not thought about this. I tried to reach into his mind to laugh at him as he tried to form a new plan but he blocked me out.
“April if you would please.” My smile left my face almost as fast as it had come. I turned to face April as she smiled at me. The corners of my eyes began to get black. He was going to make me pass out so I couldn’t warn them! My senses dulled everything was being covered with a black veil. I felt the cold stone floor beneath me. My senses were all gone now. I couldn’t hear anything, voices or minds. I was lost to the blackness. I wasn’t going to be able to warn them. I wasn’t going to be able to save the Cullen’s before it would be too late for them to do anything.
Oh, Alice please get a vision! I felt myself be scooped up by someone and the swaying of movement started. The black veil completely over took me and I was lost to the darkness.
