I took a deep breath once the wheels of the plane touched down. It was time to face Charlie.
I almost laughed as we got off the plane thinking of all the other times I had been on a plane with Edward. They had all mainly been after we, well mainly me, had faced certain death, but somehow escaped with our lives. First it was James, and then there was the Volturi, and now the Volturi again.
We had no luggage so we went to the parking lot straightaway. Edward and I climbed into the front seat while Carlisle, Alice, and Emmett sat in the back. We headed towards Charlie’s house; we had a lot
of explaining to do.
As Edward turned the car onto my street he growled and his foot went down on the gas harder than before. He sped right past my house.
“Edward? What’s wrong?” Carlisle leaned forward from the backseat.
“We forgot about Demetri.” He pressed down even harder, if that was possible.
“Oh no.” Carlisle leaned back and closed his eyes.
“Aro hasn’t called them yet, otherwise they’d be on their way back from Seattle right now.” Alice said with her eyes closed.
“No doubt he’s going to call them soon.” Edward swung the car into the Cullen’s driveway. We were in front of the house in seconds.
As soon as my foot touched the ground I was wrapped into a hug.
“Oh, Bella, I’m so happy you’re okay!” Esme pulled me tighter before stepping away and running to Carlisle.
No sooner than had she moved away, Rosalie and Jasper had me in another hug.
“You have no idea how happy I am that you’re okay.” Jasper said pulling back, Alice skipped into his arms.
“Bella, I’m so sorry I was so mean to you before, please forgive me!” Rosalie cried.
“Of course Rose.” I smiled at her and she returned it. Then she move over to Emmett. She scowled at him for a minute before throwing her arms around him.
“Wait,” Edward wrapped his arms around my waist, “what about the Volturi guard member, what happened to her?”
“Oh, well,” Esme looked at the ground, “she got a little to close to the house one day, so Jasper had to take care of her, he happened to see her when he was outside taking out the trash.”
Edward nodded his head, “I guess that’s okay.”
“Well, why don’t we head inside, the Denali clan would love to meet Bella.” Esme and Carlisle started into the house, followed by everyone else. I started to go after them, but Edward tugged me back.
“I’m so glad that you’re here safe in my arms.” He kissed my forehead. “You have no idea how scared I was that they were going to kill you before I could save you.” He leaned down and gave me a quick kiss on the lips. I tried to deepen it by wrapping my arms around his neck, but he pulled away.
“Save it.” He winked at me then took my hand and pulled me up the stairs and into the house with him.
