Olivia's POV

I whirled around to face the window. Everyone else had taken up their former aggresive positions, except Bella, who had been shoved under the bed again.

Then I saw the face that broke my heart again. He lightly sprang through the window, He had the same posture, same face, same hair. NO!! I thought, It's not him! It's that wretched Aaron! It's not him... How could he do this to me? Hurt me again. "Olivia, Please! It's me! I can explain! Please Olivia, I love you." That did it. My heart shattered. I silently winced. His face was pleading me to believe him. Edward and Jasper pinned him to the floor. "Do you want us to finish him off..." Edward asked. I slowly shook my head. For some strange reason, I just couldn't let them kill him until I knew for sure...... Of course I knew it wasn't really him, yet I hoped. "Just get him out of here." I whispered. He nodded and dragged him out the window. Strangly, he followed Edward without a fight. Why would he do that? I didn't care. I just sat on the bed and looked at the floor with a dead face. "I'm sorry, Olivia. That must be very painful for you.." "I laughed weakly. "Well, atleast I got to see his face one more time."

Edward and Jasper lightly lept through the window again and locked it behind them, and there was a light knock on the door.

Bella's POV

The door opened to reveal a terrifying brunette vampire with ruby red eyes. He was smiling wickedly. Then he spoke, but the voice belonged to Esme. "Are you five alright? We heard a commotion from our room." I then understood, this was Aaron. I looked at Edward with horror on my face. "Bella, what's wrong?" I turned from the vampire at the door so he couldn't see my face and mouthed Aaron!! His eyes widened and he growled. He lept at him and pinned him to the floor. "SOMEONE HELP ME!!" He roared. "Edward, what are you doing!!??" Alice said, her face incredulous. "IT'S AARON!! HE'S IMPERSONATING ESME!!" Jasper was there helping Edward pin him down, he now started to struggle. He gave me an icy glare far worse than any Rosalie had given me. "Wait, if this really is Aaron then...." Alice began.

"BRANT!!!" Olivia screamed. Aaron got a thoughtful, then wicked look. There was a tapping on the window. Olivia ran to it and opened it. She hugged thin air. "Olivia, what are you doing?" I asked puzzled at first. Then I gasped, "No Olivia! It's an illusion!!" Her face was at first blank, then she let go of nothing and shoved it out the window. apparently it evaporated, because I didn't hear anything after that. Aaron was furious. "Why you little...."

Then a tall, dark shadow that I could see was at the window. Its red hair whipped around it. Victoria. I yelped and Alice and Olivia began to wrestle her down, but she was strong. The door whipped open to Carlisle, Esme, Rosalie and Emmett. Emmett and Carlisle helped Edward and Jasper pin Aaron down. Rosalie helped Alice and Olivia, and Esme hurried over to me. "Bella, are you alright?" she asked. I nodded silently.

Then for some strange reason, They all loosened their holds on Aaron and Victoria and stood up. A voice coming from the direction of the door was asking, "If you wouldn't mind, the rest of the people here are trying to sleep, so if you could keep it down...." Aaron and Victoria darted to the window and escaped. I turned toward the door, and it was still shut. He had been showing them an illusion so they could escape! And I had been an idiot and not checked to see what it really was. Edward spoke, "Now the hunt begins."
