Becka and I stumbled up to the front carefully, making sure we didn’t fall. The plane was going almost straight down, and that made it extremely difficult to walk, even for a graceful vampire.
“We’re about to go down,” Aaron said loudly over the roar of the plane. We nodded, and I concentrated on keeping up the shields as I started to lower the shield I had put up to keep Alice from seeing me.
“Guy’s, act panicked,” I said just as I felt the tingle of Alice seeing me. I made myself fall down, and looked frightened. The others did as well, and Aaron, who thought ahead, put two fake dummies in the pilot seat, in positions that would suggest they were passed out.
“What’s going on?” Becka cried out in panic. She grabbed Alex, and pulled him close to her. He hugged her tightly, playing along with the illusion we were creating.
I struggled to sit up, now feeling Alice in my head stronger than before. I was sure she was having a vision now. “I…think we’re about to crash,” I whispered in horror. I jerked my head to the window, where a large mountain loomed closer and closer.
“You know a lot about planes. What do we do?” Alex yelled to Aaron who was looking around frantically. Aaron looked at him, and there was hopelessness in his expression.
“Pray that you don’t die,” he said with a shrug.
I rolled my eyes at that. “Okay, I would think that after all the near death experiences I have had, something less common than a plane crash would get me.”
Aaron cocked his head. I knew he was about to ask what I thought should kill me when Becka and I screamed. We were about to hit the mountain.
I quickly flexed my hands before putting them over my face and diving down, like I did during tornado drills. I knew it wouldn’t matter, but I had to do something. I had already put up a small shield around the four of us, and I would release it as soon as we hit the ground.
A jarring crash made me come out of my thoughts, and I immediately released all of my shields. They four of us bounced forward, and were hit by multiple pieces of the plane. A large one clipped me in the head, and I pretended to pass out. I hope no one noticed that part of it broke when it hit my head.
I quickly closed the shield around us as soon as I was hit in the head. I had to make it look like I was….dead. I knew that when people died in Alice’s visions, she couldn’t see them anymore.
“Alright you guys,” I said, jumping up. “Let’s get our stuff and move so I can let the engines explode.” I was having difficulty holding them up now; the pressure inside them was so great.
Becka nodded and teleported us into the woods. As soon as we were out, I flicked my wrist and a large explosion erupted behind us. We swayed forward slightly, pushed by the blast. Then we turned to see the damage of what we did.
A lot of trees were burning, while even more lay flat on the ground, charred to the point where you couldn’t even tell they used to be trees. The ground was black, and some grass smoldered slightly. Everything was destroyed. Even the plane was now just chunks of twisted black metal. It was horrifying to watch.
While the guys started to drift away to find a stream to put out some of the fires, I remembered everything that was happening. We were about to go to Italy. I had forgotten it in the destruction before us.
I looked at Becka. I wasn’t even sure if she could see any emotions on my face. All I could feel was my heart shattering into a million pieces.
She nodded, and grabbed my hand softly. The only thing on her face was pity for me, and what I was going through.
We appeared in his room. I could tell from the air that no one was home yet, so we didn’t have to worry about being walked in on.
I walked over to his couch slowly, and then shook my head. I had to put my letter somewhere he would know I would put it.
I looked around his dark room, and then walked toward all of his CDs. I set my letter down on his CD player.
To make sure he would find it, I put the CD he had gotten me next to it. He would know it was me.
Before I went back over to Becka to leave and go to Italy, I took one last look at the letter that would be my last words to him for a long time.
No words can express how sorry I am. Nothing I can say will make you understand how much I wish I didn’t have to do this. But I have to, to keep you safe.
I’m not going to tell you who made me leave, or else you’d come after me, and they would kill you. I can’t let that happen. I don’t even think you know them, and if you do, not well.
They made a deal with me. Your family’s safety for me. I had to accept. I promise, though, that I will get away, and come back to you. I’ll do whatever it takes, even if it takes me a hundred years.
I love you so, so much
I knew that some of what I wrote was a lie. He knew the Volturi, and much better than anyone in my coven. But I knew he would guess it was them, so I had to say it was someone he didn’t know. I wouldn’t let him get hurt again to protect me, especially now that I could protect myself.
I looked up at Becka and nodded. As we faded away back to the burning wreckage, I felt my heart once again free itself from my chest to stay there, and the pain of the hole was fresh.
Becka didn’t want to stay any longer in the forest than necessary. She reached out for Aaron and Alex, and the disappeared again.
We were on our way to our exile.
