Edward's POV

"FIFTEEN MINUTES?!" I roared, probably scaring poor Bella. "Yes, and we won't be able to smell them or hear them. Aaron's using an illusion." Alice said to me. Then I realized I could have read her mind. idiot. I told myself. I snatched Bella up in my arms and held her close to me. I will not let anything happen to Bella. I will not let anything happen to Bella. I will not let.... I continued repeating that sentence in my head. I was not going to let them get my Bella. I loved her more than I loved life itself, and if she died, I would have to make a last trip to Italy.

Brant's POV

Ten minutes. I will not let anything happen to Liv. I will not let anything happen to Liv. I will not let..... I repeated the sentence over and over in my head. I would not lose her again. Never again. Never, never, never ever again. I tensed. I waited for the moment of horror and victory to come. I was ready. I was ready to rip that Aaron boy to pieces. I hated him so very much. He had taken Liv away from me.

He was going to die a slow, painful, awful death, and I would make sure of that.

Olivia's POV

Five minutes. I waited tense as Brant stroked my hair. Deep down inside, I was terrified. Aaron was the one who had taken me away from my love, and I knew he wasn't an idiot. He was brilliant, and sometimes his theatrical side got the best of him. That's exactly what I was hoping would happen tonight. I breathed sharply in. I waited.

Bella's POV

One minute. I was horrified. Aaron and Victoria were coming to kill. They weren't coming to trick us, or to play games, or to have a lovely tea party. They were coming to kill. Chills ran up my back. I waited, horrified. I had no idea what they would do. I waited. and waited. and waited. A soft knock at the door almost made me scream, but Edward's hand was at my lips to cover them. Quiet! he mouthed. I sat frozen with terror. This time, Carlisle walked up to the door to open it, followed by Emmett and Jasper. Alice and Esme stood in front of Edward, who was holding me, preparing to stuff me under the bed or fight. Brant, Olivia and Rosalie stood defensively, preparing to spring.

Carlisle opened the door gingerly. The doorway was empty. Emmett was about to step out and look around outside the door, but Carlisle grabbed his arm. 'IT's a trap.' he mouthed, and when their guard was down, in the milisecond in which their 'conversation' was taking place, a two blurs of brown and bright red flashed and knocked down Jasper and Emmett. Carlisle sprang at them and joined in with the fight. Olivia, Brant and Rosalie joined in the action too. Then a felt a whoosh of air and I was under the bed.

Olivia's POV

I sprang at this Victoria girl and fought her like she was the devil. I took one of her arms, Brant saw what I was doing and grabbed her other arm. When we were about to rip her in two, she swirled around and out of our grip. Before I knew what was happening, she grabbed me by the throat and lifted me off the ground. She squeezed. Brant let out a ferocious and vicious roar. He grabbed her by her long red hair and yanked her over to face him. At first I didn't realize what he was doing, then she screamed out. He was ripping her head right off her neck. With her last measure of effort, she kicked him in the, er, you know. He toppled over. I let out a menacing growl. She whipped around, but I was faster. I snatched her by the neck and pinned her to the ground. Brant was about done recovering, and he helped took her arm and began to rip it out. Then he was gone in a blur I whipped around and I saw him hit the wall so hard it made a huge dent in it. I saw Aaron helping Victoria up. Then Emmett took him from behind and him and Jasper began to pull at his arms. He put up a fight. Where was Victoria?

Edward's POV

I was guarding the bed. Suddenly, Victoria was gone. I looked around frantically. I scream came from under the bed. I was there in less than a second. Victoria was strangling Bella. I grabbed her by the head and ripped hard. She let out a scream that was like fingers on a chalk board. I pulled harder. The screaming suddenly stopped. I pulled her dead corpse out from under the bed. Brant, Emmett and Jasper were pulling Aaron's limbs as hard as they could. He created an illusion of Olivia catching fire, But they knew better. They didn't stop pulling. He split in two.
We gathered up the remains of Aaron and Victoria. Jasper and Emmett took them outside to burn them. BELLA!!! I thought frantically. I lept under the bed and to Bella. She lay unconcious. I picked her up gently in my arms. I took her to Carlisle. "Is there anything seriously wrong with her?" I asked him. He examined her carefully. "No, she's unconcious from lack of air though. Let her rest for a day or so. She'll be fine." I sighed in relief. I hated myself for letting her be harmed. Even if it was a minor injury. I kissed her gently. Her eyes fluttered open. "Edward?" she said. "Yes, I'm here. It's alright Bella, they're gone now. It's alright." I said kissing her again. She sighed and closed her eyes. I laid her gently on the bed. It was over now.
