“You should have been named Theresa, you know that?” Aaron said, rolling his eyes. “I mean, you’re such a goodie two shoes! Can you ever do something that will upset other people?”
My entire face hardened as he said that. “Of course I can Aaron. May I remind you of how three years ago we left everyone we loved and cared about to come here? I did too.”
We were all sitting in Alex’s room, together for the first time in three years. Becka and I came back a day early, and we found the two of them together. We went in there, and were talking about what had happened.
He looked down. “I didn’t mean it like that,” he muttered. “I know what you had to give up.”
Becka changed the subject. “So, why did they leave the two of you alone? I mean, you both always have a guard with you, or are with a group of people.”
It was true. After the first year of our service here, Aro saw that we all wanted to leave desperately. So he had a new schedule made up with us. One of us had to be with at least one guard at a time, and one other had to be with a group. The other two (usually me and Becka) were free to do whatever we wanted. He knew we wouldn’t leave without them, so he made it so we couldn’t even get to them.
Alex and Aaron grinned. “Well,” Alex said happily. “When Bella left, we were suddenly able to use our powers on people again. We guessed that Aro didn’t know that she was going to lower our shields.”
I smiled. “I thought you would like to have some fun.”
“Well, the certainly did. I mean, I can’t believe no one noticed that we changed their entire schedule and got them all to go hunting early. I mean, they’re going to eat animals!” Aaron exclaimed.
Becka and I looked at him in disbelief. “You got them to do that?” Becka asked with raised eyebrows. I just stared at them intently, an idea suddenly beginning to form in my head.
“Yeah, and it was really funny. I expect they’ll all be back soon all angry and disgruntled with golden eyes,” Alex laughed. “I mean, I can’t even picture any of them without crimson eyes. It just wouldn’t be right!”
“Could you do it again? Except make them do something else?” I inquired quietly and intently to Alex. He frowned slightly at my tone, looking at me suspiciously.
“Yes I could, if you lowered your shields on me. All I would have to do is get rid of memories that would clue them in to whatever you need to do. Why though?”
I smiled tightly. “Make them forget my powers.”
The others gaped at me. “Why?” Aaron asked, awe heavy in his voice. He knew that I had figured something out, and that it would probably work.
“Well, let them remember my invisibility. Just make them forget my shields. That way I can give you free reign on your powers, and you can do what you want. Then we can get away.”
Becka looked like a fish almost, the way she was gaping at me. “Do you really think we could do that? I mean, they would figure out that we’re gone, and they would have Demetri trace us.”
I laughed. “Don’t tell me after being in the wretched room for hours that you forgot some of the abilities that come with my shields. I can block all of your minds so that Demetri can’t get into it.”
Becka grinned at me impishly. “Right, of course. I guess I kind of forgot about that part.”
I shook my head. “Really. You know, there could be a life and death situation going on, and when you forget something important, good luck to you.”
They all just grinned at me. “You’re our good luck charm,” Aaron said cheerfully. “You bring us all the logic and intuition that stops us from doing something stupid.” I rolled my eyes. I had the worst luck in the world, and he knew it.
I only hoped it didn’t affect what we were about to do.
