I knew how I could solve this problem.

I threw my shield away from me and got ready to remember my whole life.

Edward blinked and focused, ready to listen.

The stage was set, time for the show.

I threw out my sharpest human memory first, the transformation.

I kicked and fought the best I could. I knew it was useless, but someone kept yelling at me commanding me to fight. I didn’t really want to fight though, what was the point? Still I listened to the voice, I tried to do what it said. I longed for it before, but now I just wanted it gone.

I was brought back to the now familiar Volterra. Jane and Demetri threw me down on the floor at Aro’s feet. I glared at him and got up. Then there was a sudden pain in my stomach when he said a certain name, I don’t remember which, I don’t care, it just made me angry.

“So you were with them, and you knew about us?” Aro asked, I recognized them from an old painting I saw at someone’s house. They knew someone I knew, just like them. Vampires, all of them, every single person I knew was a vampire.

I nodded, “Why is it important?”

“Ah, little one, they have broken one of our most important rules by telling you,” he answered, then paused, “Jane dear, you said this one can’t be hurt by you?”

“Yes, Aro,” Jane said.

“You may prove important to us, how would you like to join the guard?” Aro said, suddenly giddy with anticipation.

“Do it Bella, stay safe, join them,” the voice said.

I hung my head and told Aro yes.

Then I was bitten, I don’t know who did, but there was a cut at my neck wrists and ankles. I screamed, not expecting it. There were snarls everywhere and yells to get certain people out of the room.

The fire burned. It spread through my body at a rapid pace. I was constantly wishing for death, to be free of the pain forever. I begged for the fire to stop. My only pain killer was Felix. He stuck by me the whole time. His hand always on my forehead, arm, or hand, trying to help cool me off. He murmured things like ‘it will be over soon, I promise’ and ‘I know it hurts, its okay, it will be better soon.’ I didn’t realize how much I needed him until recently.

There was a snarl across the room, I rolled my eyes, “If what you say is true, then it’s your own fault,” Edward winced and I continued.

When the fire stopped, I jerked up and into a crouch, taking in the colors, it was amazing how well I could see everything. I recognized Felix and ran to him. I hugged him and thanked him for staying with me.

“Anything for you,” he said, “I promise you right now that I’ll always look out for you.”

He lead me to Jane. What happened next changed my life forever.

Jane was torturing a human, I grimaced, why bother with something as stupid and vulnerable as a human? But Felix thought it upset me.

“That’s enough Jane,” she ignored him, “Jane,” again she ignored him. He lunged at her, she turned to him and he was on the ground. The image was horrifying. I wanted it to stop, I wanted to protect him. I needed to help him.

Then Felix stood up, Jane was shocked as was I. It was like I had an umbrella over him. Then Azuria came in the room.

“It appears you have forgotten your place Jane,” Azuria said.

“Azuria, don’t!” Felix yelled, but it was too late. Jane’s screams filled the tower as Azuria grabbed her hand. I tried to protect her, seeing Jane hurt wasn’t as pleasant as I thought it would be.

Felix could see me straining to help her. He put his hand on my shoulder and told me to relax.

“Zury, that is enough,” Felix commanded. She stopped and backed away.

Jane started to laugh, it echoed like bells through the tower. “It appears we have found the one thing that Ella isn’t immune to.”

It was then that Aro made Azuria my master. Felix didn’t like it, but what Aro wants Aro gets. I started to focus on my safety and thankfully the voice started to fade until it was gone forever.

Azuria tortured me until I didn’t care if I was called Ella and couldn’t remember what happened before, but Aro filled in the blanks.

I came from Washington. A vampire had used me as an experiment and told me about their entire existence. Then he left it upset me, but when the Volturi took me I got over it.

A few weeks after I got there was when Felix first tried to kiss me. I pushed him away, too broken to try to love again. Aro told me his name was James, and I just couldn’t forget him until recently.

“I loved a James, not you. I keep telling you, I’m not your Bella.” I told Edward, “Again, I’m sorry,”
