"Bella!" Several voices called at once. I tried to look to see who was calling to me, but pain shot down through my body when I did.
"We told you we would be coming to check in, Edward." The vampire holding me down said, letting up some of the pressure on my back.
"We should go back to our home and discuss what’s going on." Carlisle announced, walking into my field of vision. He looked calm ad collected, but I saw the panic in his eyes. Something was wrong. "Bella needs medical treatment."
"She won’t be needing that." Another voice said, walking out of the woods. "We wouldn’t want to give human doctors evidence that we exist."
"Aro, how nice to see you again." Carlisle was ver surprised to see him there. "It has been a while since we last saw each other."
"It has been a while, my old friend. I never thought I would have to come and deal with a problem with you. This is the second time we have had to come to Forks, and the last time."
"Why are you here now?"
"The girl, Carlisle. She’s still human. We told Edward and Alice that we couldn’t allow it to stay that way. We also informed you last time we were here. We just came to go ahead and finish the matter, and to see if Bella would like to come and join us."
I let out a gasp. I didn’t want to go with them! I wanted to stay with Edward.
"As you saw, they were about to get married and you interrupted the ceremony. We told you we had a date set." Alice said, sounding put out that her wedding had turned out like it had.
"Well it doesn’t require a wedding to become a vampire. Now I’m going to give you a choice. One of you can do it, or I’ll do it myself."
I heard Edward growl, and could picture his lips peeling back over his teeth. This was the moment of truth.
"What is it going to be?"
"I’ll do it." Edward was finally going to do it. All this time and now it was here. I was scared out of my mind.
The weight from my back moved away, but it was still throbbing in pain and my legs were numb.
"Edward, be careful. He broke her back. Try not to move her yet." Carlisle warned.
Edward knelt down beside me, touching my hair softly. His lips were pressed into a hard line. "I’m so sorry. It wasn’t suppose to happen this way. We didn’t see this."
"It’s okay." I felt tears building up in my eyes.
His lips were at my throat, ghosting over the surface. "I’m so sorry, Bella."
I held back my scream. Charlie would hear and come running if I didn’t. I had to protect them from the Volturi, even if there were only two there. Soon I would have to protect them from me.
"We should move her back to the house, Carlisle." Esme said, her voice full of concern.
"Yes. Edward, pick her up gently. Take her back to the house. We’ll deal with the crowd and then join you at the house. Emmett is going to go with you." Carlisle had control over the situation.
"We’ll be seeing you soon, Carlisle." Aro said, moving away from us. His movements caused the leaves to crunch under him.
Edward’s lips were still pressed against my throat, moving over the wound. He was muttering how sorry he was. I don’t think he heard what Carlisle had said. I tried to tell him but I couldn’t open my mouth for fear of a glass shattering scream that might come out.
"Edward, let’s go." Emmett said, coming close to us. I could see his shinny black shoes. He had argued with Alice over those shoes. He hadn’t wanted to wear them, he had wanted to wear black tennis shoes.
I bit back a scream as Edward lifted me up. Pain was shooting through my whole body. I didn’t know what was caused by the venom or by my broken back. I just knew that everything hurt.
"It’s going to be, okay, sis, we’re going back to the house." Emmett said, his voice rumbling down in his chest. I would have smiled if I could have.
"You should try and sleep, love. It’ll be the last time you ever do." Edward murmured in my ear, running through the forest.
I tried not to close my eyes. I wanted to see his face. I couldn’t see him from how he was holding me. All I saw was his shoulder. I wanted to take an image of him into the pain and darkness.
"Edward." I managed to gasp, holding back the scream.
"I love you."
I needed to hear those three words before I could let myself be pulled into darkness. "I love you too, Bella."
The last thing I heard was Emmett. "Looks like we won’t be staying here much longer. The dogs are going to have a field day."
