Edward’s Point Of View

I sat down on the couch in my room. We were trying out Cold Bay, Alaska. It had a very low population, it was cold so no one would notice if we were, it wouldn’t be a big deal if we moved, most people don’t stay here more than a year, and we could pretend to be older.

I flipped out my new cell phone -Alice was mad that I ignored her call of encouragement and got revenge by cracking a few “talks to cell phone” jokes, the insensitive little brat- and checked the date.

September thirteenth. Today Bella would be thirty-two, if she weren’t dead.

It was a car accident fourteen years ago, her body broken beyond recognition. My first thought was to go the Volturi, but why bother when a pack of fresh werewolves sprang up?

As soon as I crossed the line, the werewolves had me surrounded right away, the smell made me want to throw up. The leader, Sam, asked me why I did it. I was so dead I told him that Bella was gone so I had nothing left to live for.

“What are you talking about, you stupid leech? Bella’s not dead, not in that sense!” one of them thought.

“How do you know? You don’t even know her.” I asked.

“I’ve known Bella my whole life!” he yelled in his head. So this was the rat that blabbed to Bella about us. Someone who has to uphold the treaty. Nice. “The other bloodsuckers took her before we could do anything.”

“Who?”

“I don’t know, some really tiny girl and a huge guy,” another thought, “I don’t know how but one of them could hurt us without even coming near us.” They all shuttered at the memory. I saw an image of Jane and Demetri from the Volturi in they’re heads.

So Bella’s not dead, not like that anyway. I tried to go after her, bring her back or die, but Alice always got wave of the idea first. She had Emmett and Jasper literally hold me back while Carlisle told me how stupid it was and that I could get Bella killed too.

Carlisle thought of a way to get them to come to us, he deliberately spread word that we let newborns loose. Hopefully that was enough to draw them close.

Bella’s Point Of View

“Ella hurry up!” Felix yelled from in front of me. Felix, Azuria, Demetri, Jane (who both ended up coming), and I were running from the airport to outside of Cold Bay, Alaska, and, of course, I was trailing behind.

“Yes, sir,” I said, pushing myself harder.

He chuckled, it was always funny to him that I called him “sir”. He didn’t like it, but he didn’t hate it. For some odd reason, Felix was always infatuated with me, but I never felt that way about him. Most of the time he respected that, and was good with being one of my only friends, but every now and then, it got awkward.

Like last week. We were talking (which he tries to do every now and then to get me away from Azuria) and he tried to kiss me, I pulled away and he shrugged with a “I’ll be patient,” then continued the conversation as if nothing had happened.

Only something did happen. With me. For him, it was the same as always, for me, completely different. This time, I’d come really close to letting him.

I almost regretted it. Felix was really good looking. And nice. But something about him repels me away. It has to be me, all the other girls are jealous that he likes me, not them. So it has to be me.

“Felix?” I asked, hesitantly.

He turned around and smiled at me, “Yes, Ella?”

I bit my lip, Azuria, Jane, and Demetri were still turned around, waiting impatiently. I wrote “I need to talk to you.” in sign language to him.

“Zury,” he said, “I need to talk to Ella alone for a moment,”

She whirled around, “B-”

“It will only be a moment, thank you,” he grabbed my arm, pretending to be rough for Azuria’s sake, and dragged me a few miles away.

“What is Ella?” he asked, his eyes gentle.

I took a deep, unneeded breath, wrapped my arms around his neck, and kissed him. Our lips moved in synchronization. He was gentle and caring as his arms wrapped around my waist and pulled me closer to him.

It was great, but there was a whisper-no, quieter than that, an echo in the back of my head that didn’t like it, that was saying I’d had so much better. I quickly smothered it and clutched him closer.

We separated after a while, our breathing rough.

“What brought all this on?” he asked.

I really didn’t know, so I gave him the best answered I could, “I woke up,”

He laughed, “I don’t think I’ll ever understand you, Ella. C’mon let get back before the others start grumbling.”

“Yes, sir!” I saluted him.

He wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me to him, “Darn, you have to call me ‘sir’ still don’t you?”

I nodded, “Master won’t like this. I feel like a traitor doing something she doesn’t like me doing,”

“Well I’m her superior, I won’t let her hurt you anymore, it really hurt's me when she harms you,” he said.

I gasped, “No! I need to be punished sometimes! I’m lucky she made me the person I am today!” I realized who I was talking to and panicked, “Oh my gosh! I’m sorry! I forgot my place! I-”

He put his hand over my mouth, “You’re place is next to me. Now come on.” He took my arm like before, kissed my forehead, and lead me back to Azuria, Jane, and Demtri.
