Bella's Point Of View:
Hoping that she still had yet to notice me I took a seat silently in the back of the class. After about a minute, that blank look that meant a vision came onto her face. I focused on what she was seeing.
A dark alley somewhere with a hole in the ground that people jumped in down towards the ground. The scene changed. A room, a throne room with three men and several hooded figures stood. One of the guards looked up exposing his bronze hair and golden eyes. Edward. The vision faded.
To have a vision of someone the person must be alive. This vision is of Edward, which can only mean one thing... Edward is alive. My delusions of him during the transformation all those years ago were correct. I let him be tortured and alone in Volterra, Italy for twenty years. Twenty years alone, being forced to do who knows what. It's my entire fault. I should have been there with Edward instead of here in Chicago. Why didn't I put this together sooner?
What are the Volturi capable of doing? I winced at the possibilities of what they could do. Alice obviously noticed my wince because the moment after I winced she whipped her head around to face me. A smile crossed her face before she came and sat down right next to me.
"Bella! How are you alive? I watched your future disappear." Alice asked confusedly.
I knew I was going to have to explain everything someday. "I decided on that day to kill myself and it would have worked if someone hadn't decided to turn me. Alice I don't think he is dead." I explained and confessed my decisions on Edward.
"I believe you Bella, I have my vision for evidence. What is your evidence?" She asked.
I took a deep breath before explaining. "When I jumped off the cliff I heard him yell at me in protest. He scooped me up then and carried me before biting me. For two of the three days he was there comforting me. He told me that he was tricked and that the one person who could pull us apart had him. I just thought that I was delusional while I was being turned. I never realized that it was real." I explained. Even though everything I said sounds crazy, I'm pretty sure it's real.
"Bella, I believe you." Alice said. I was shocked. She believes me? I mean it sounded pretty crazy coming out of my mouth.
"You do?" I asked in shock. Seriously she does? This sounded really crazy coming out of my mouth and even in my head.
"Yes. I've been getting visions of things that make no sense. When I think about those visions, every single one of them could be connected of him. He's one of the few people who understand how to trigger my visions and exactly what to see. Plus, he would do that." Alice explained and all of the things fell into place at that moment. Edward knows how to trigger Alice's visions to exactly what he wants her to see. Edward would play with the border of rules and play with any loopholes he could find. Edward would be elusive and mysterious in effort to tell us something.
"If we both know this then why are we sitting here? Why aren't we in Forks proving ourselves right or in Italy saving him?" I asked getting up from my seat.
"I'll meet you out by your car in ten minutes I have to get everyone else first." Alice said. I nodded in agreement before heading out to my car.
Ten minutes on the dot, Alice was outside giving me a signal to get in my car so no one knew I was here. I climbed into the car on the passenger side and Alice climbed into the driver seat.
"They are going to meet us at the house. I didn't tell them anything yet, just that there was an urgent matter and we need to get home now. So they all are on the way." She explained.
"Good." I responded.
"So, how are you Bella? I mean really." She asked with worry in her voice. I knew she was going to ask me this and not let me beat around the bush when I answered.
"Honestly on the inside it feels like half of me died with him on that day. I can distract myself all I want it does no good. I'm pained to remember but terrified to forget him. To answer your question I'm doing awful." Telling Alice the truth feels good. The day Edward died was the day I died emotionally.
"Bella, he's alive. We both proved that. You are going to have your Edward and you're happily ever after back." Alice promised as she pulled in. We're here. This will be interesting.
