I did not see Sam the next couple of days for he was at work, so I spent the majority of them in my room, until Alice eventually came in with Emmett and Jasper and told me that I had to get out of the house. I frowned at them and shook my head, but that just made them more persistent. Emmett actually had the nerve to pick me up and set me on the ground in the middle of their circle.
“Why?” I asked. There was no point in me going out except if I had to feed and if I was going somewhere with Sam. And, I was doing neither.
“It will do you some good to get out of this house,” Jasper pointed out.
“And,” Emmett said. “We miss seeing you. You have been in this room too much. You need to go out. You are not going to know anyone. Trust us. And, no one with know who you are.”
“What are you guys thinking about doing?” I eyed them suspiciously. What were they planning?
“Oh, you know,” Alice started, “just getting out. And we are inviting you to come with us.”
“Just so you know,” Jasper started.
“You don’t have a choice to go or not,” Emmett finished for him. I nodded slowly.
“What are we going to do?” I repeated.
“You will see,” Alice said dancing from the room. Jasper looked after her and then followed. Emmett stayed where he was.
“Age before beauty,” I told him with a smirk. A playful grin came over his face, and he threw me over his shoulder. I shrieked as he ran down the steps and out the door. I was thrown into his jeep, and Emmett crawled in after me. Jasper was on the other side of me, Alice was in the passenger seat, and Rosalie was driving. I glared at Jasper and Emmett throughout the whole ride as the held onto my arms as if I were being held hostage.
“You guys are mean,” I said through clenched teeth.
“Oh, shut up,” Emmett said. “You know you still love us. There’s no point in making rude comments.”
“Can’t I at least invite Sam along?” I asked jutting out my bottom lip so that I was pouting. “You can not keep me from him, you know?”
“You need a break from him, Bells.”
“I have not seen him in almost five days, and you are going to tell me that I need a break from him. Are you kidding me?”
“Nope,” Emmett said, popping at the p. “You need to spend some quality time with the family.”
I glowered at them. “You can not keep me hostage for too long. I will find a way to escape, and you can bet on that.” Alice tensed and then frowned. I knew that she had had a vision.
“Jasper,” she started. “We will have to keep a really close eye on her tonight. She can be very sneaky.”
“Ooo, did you see me getting away? Was I not having fun, so I left? To go meet Sam?”
“Shut up,” Alice’s said, murder consuming her voice. “I can stop you. And, I know more ways than one to do it. You had better behave, Isabella Swan.”
“Yeah, yeah,” I said. “Whatever you say, Master. The force is strong within you. Yada yada! I know the drill.” Alice glared at me and shook her head menacingly before turning back around in her seat. I smirked triumphantly.
“Bella,” Emmett growled, but I could tell that he was being playful. “How many times have I told you…?” I waited patiently for him to say something else. I cocked an eyebrow and waited. “DO NOT QUOTE STAR WARS!”
“Is that all?” I asked in mock disbelieve. “I was sure that you were going to tell me that I should not torment Alice the way I do, but… whatever you say, Obi One.” Emmett couldn’t help but laugh and I joined in. I knew that Rosalie had rolled her eyes, she was just that way.
Rosalie had gone back to her normal self when I was turned into a vampire and joined their family. I mean, yes, we did have small conversations here or there, but nothing big. It’s not like we went around sharing a deepest, darkest secrets with anyone.
I sighed and looked past Jasper out the window of the Jeep. It would be easy to escape from the Jeep, but I was going to let them have their fun for awhile. That was, until I could not stand being away from Sam anymore.
Rosalie pulled up to a building, and I could immediately hear the music pounding from inside. My eyes widened, and I said, “No, no way am I going in there. I refuse to. Especially not without Sam.”
“Bella,” Alice whined. “You are going in and that’s final. I’m not saying that you have to dance or anything, you just have to go in… and stay.” We all got out of the Jeep. I was pushed out by Emmett, though, so I technically did not have a choice.
“I am not going into a club Alice. You can’t make me,” I retaliated.
“Oh, can’t I? Boys,” she commanded. Jasper and Emmett took hold of my arms again and even though I squirmed and kicked, they kept me in their grips. I growled ferociously.
“I see why you and Edward got along,” Jasper muttered. I don’t believe that I was supposed to hear it, but I did. I don’t think that he meant any harm, but he did inflict some. I felt my eyes droop with sadness and everyone had gone silent. I took in a shaky breath.
“Oh, God, Bella,” Jasper began. “I am so sorry. I didn’t realize what I was saying. It just came out. Oh, shoot!”
“Oh, Bella,” Alice whispered. “Come here.” She pulled me into her tiny arms and rubbing circles into my back. I could feel my throat tightening with tears that would never come. And the thought that I could not cry my problems away, mad me even sadder.
I took a couple of more shaky breaths before pushing away from Alice. “I’m okay,” I said, trying to convince them.
“Honestly,” I said when I saw their disbelieving faces. “You know that the subject of… makes me depressed. I’m okay though.” I could not bring myself to say his name. It hurt sometimes. I blamed myself for him dying. It was obvious that it was my fault.
“Here,” I started, “You know what? You guys go and head inside. I’ll be in in a second. Okay? I just need some fresh air. I won’t run away, Alice.” I added the last part when I saw Alice give me a look. “I just need time alone, okay? I promise that I will be in soon.” They all nodded slowly and then turned around and headed for the club entrance.
I sighed when they left. I really did need some alone time. I jumped up onto the hood of Emmett’s Jeep. I crossed my legs and sat there, placing my hands under my chin. I wished I could cry. This was probably the one time that I actually wanted to cry; to get all my tears out; to make my eyes red and swollen.
That was never going to happen.
I reclined back against the windshield and closed my eyes. We were in a secluded part of the parking, so no one could see me as they walked from their cars to club entrance, they would not be able to see me.
And that’s when the hairs on the back of my neck pricked up. Something was coming toward me, something not human. I attempted to keep my breathing as normal as possible and keep my eyes closed. I kept my senses as alert as possible. Whatever it was, I did not want it getting the best of me. I would never let that happen.
I waited quietly. I could feel it getting closer and closer. My breathing was getting harder to control. That was something that I had taken over to my vampire life. I still got nervous. A lot. And, when that happened it was hard for me to control.
That’s when I heard the loud BANG as the thing leapt onto the roof of Emmett’s Jeep.
