Aro, Caius and Marcus led us to their home. If someone had actually seen us, it might be a comical experience for them.
Aro, Caius and Marcus were in their “V” formation while Sam was running behind them. I was riding on Sam’s back. Apparently, he didn’t want to let me go.
When we arrived at their home, if you could call it that, I marveled the wall around the castle from Sam’s back.
“It’s beautiful,” I whispered, my mouth at Sam’s ear. “Do you think so, too? I am going to feel like a princess.” I giggled and swung my legs at Sam’s hips. He laughed a loud, roaring sound.
“You are a princess, Bells,” he muttered back. Then, he swung me around so I was facing him, my legs wrapped around his waist. “You are my princess.”
I smirked and pressed my forehead against his. My hair fell around both our faces. I closed my eyes solemnly.
“We must continue in,” I heard Aro say. I nodded my head numbly and pulled away from Sam. I slid from his arms and grabbed his hand pulling him so that we were closer to the trio.
The gates opened as soon as they reached it. I gaped in amazement when the gates were fully open.
“Wow,” I breathed and then leaned into Sam. He wrapped his around my shoulders and kissed the top of my head. “You live here?”
“For a long while,” Caius informed.
They led us into the castle and right when we entered it felt… cold? I wrapped my arms around myself and Sam rubbed circles into my back, all the while giving me a concerned look.
“Welcome!” Aro exclaimed, spreading his arms out in front of him gesturing around. “Our humble abode.” I could not contain my scoff. This was not an abode. This was a castle!
“Is something not to your liking?” Caius questioned. I shook my head and looked around, though my eyes fell onto the one called Marcus. Again, he was looking between Sam and me. A flicker of some emotion that I could not put my finger on came into his eyes.
I inspected him carefully. He was dressed in a full black ensemble. His pants looked like jeans and he was wearing a turtleneck and a long trench coat that reached his ankles. His hair was very, very long. But, it did not make him look girlish in any way. I could see his muscles bulging from under the coat and his abs were… well kept.
I hated to admit this, but he looked way stronger than Emmett and Sam combined. I shuddered at the thought, and forced myself to look away.
“Is there a… bathroom or something that I can wash off in?” I asked impatiently as Aro was explaining a portrait to us.
“Ah, yes,” Aro said. “Heidi can show you.”
“Heidi!” he barked. Immediately a gorgeous, mahogany haired woman strutted into the room. One of the first things that I noticed were her eyes. They were not the normal shade of a human drinking vampire; no, they were violet. Almost like she had contacts in over her red eyes.
“Yes, sir?” she asked, and her voice definitely matched her. It was sweet and flowing. Like… candy.
“Show Bella where one of our washrooms is, please,” he instructed. Heidi nodded quickly and then looked me over and scowled. She turned and started walking away. I quickly got up on my tip toes and kissed Sam’s lips briefly.
“I’ll be back in a bit,” I told him. Then, I ran after Heidi. “Wait up!” She slowed her pace down a bit, but not a lot, so I still had to run to keep up with her.
I was always a couple of steps behind her, never able to catch up to her. We walked in silence, though. Once we reached a door, Heidi swung around to face me, blocking the door.
“Do not think that I have not noticed anything,” she growled at me.
I jumped back in surprise. Who knew that her voice could be so full of menace? “I-I’m sorry, Heidi, but I don’t know what you are referring to.”
“You know damn well what it is, but would you like me to spell it out?” she spit at me. I jumped back a few feet and looked at her. “You had better stay away from Marcus. He is mine. Do not even try going for him, it would be a waste of time for you.
“Do not play dumb with me, Isabella. I know exactly what you are coming here for. Well, you know what? You can just stop with your little plan now. It would never work anyway.”
“Wh-What plan? I seriously do not know what you are talking about.”
“Whatever. Don’t pretend that you did not notice the look Marcus was giving you. That look is meant for me and only me. No one else. So keep your grimy little paws of f of him. Okay?” I nodded my head vigorously.
I honestly had no idea what Heidi was talking about. I would have to agree that Marcus was looking at me… longingly? I couldn’t think of a better word. That was all that seemed to describe it.
And, what did she mean that Marcus was meant to look at her that way. I didn’t notice any wedding ring on either of their fingers. Humph!
I pushed open the door and paused in mid step. What did it matter to me if there was anything going on between Heidi and Marcus? I barely knew them. What did I care if Marcus was looking at me longingly? The truth is that it couldn’t… didn’t! Right?
I tried to push all of those thoughts aside as I stepped into the washroom and shut the door behind me silently. There was a large bathtub in the middle of the room, and I knew that that was just what I needed.
I sighed once I had slid into the warm water. I rested my head back against the edge and hung my arms of the sides.
I do not know how long I stayed in there, but it seemed like only minutes had gone by when I heard the pounding on the door.
“Bells?” I recognized Sam’s voice almost immediately. “Are you in here? I think that it is time for you to come out now.”
“Yeah,” I agreed. “Hang on! Just a second.” I jumped out of the bathtub and pulled the plug. I wrapped a robe around me and sat on the edge of the bathtub waiting for the water to empty. Wait for it to be empty.
I pilled my clothing into my arms and walked slowly to the door, my mind still elsewhere.
As soon as the door was opened, Sam pulled me into his arms.
“You are never leaving me alone again… ever,” he growled playfully into my ear. “Do you have any idea of house torturous that tour was? Wait, no, you don’t because you ditched me!”
“I did not ditch you, Sam,” I scolded. “I merely snuck away.” He chuckled and buried his face in my neck.
“Well, then, never sneak away ever again… please, Bells.”
“Never ever.” But, as I spoke the words, I realized that they were a complete lie. And, that saddened me.
What had gotten into me in these past few hours? What had happened to me?! Something terrible was going on with me.
I vowed that I would talk to Alice as soon as I could get a chance to give her a call. She could give me some insight. And, same with Rose. I am sure that she could help me, too.
“Let’s go to our room,” Sam muttered against my neck.
“They gave us a room?” I asked, my voice full of nonchalance.
Sam just nodded and picked me up bridal style.
“Just practicing,” he murmured and then brought me to our room.
