“Where are we going?” I asked hurriedly, as I threw my clothes into a duffel bag. Edward tossed a jewelry box in.

“I don’t know. That’s up to Carlisle, I think.” Edward began emptying out my hair supplies drawer and picking out the products and accessories he thought I would need.

I slammed my last empty drawer shut and pushed my clothes down as far as I could, to make room for toiletries. I picked up my toothbrush and toothpaste and flung them on top of the pillow my clothes had made. Edward piled in a brush, shampoo, and conditioner, then swept the rest of the products he had pulled out back in the drawer. Moving as only a vampire could to the back of the trailer, he returned with his arms full of snacks, and dumped those into the duffel as well.

“We didn’t bring any human food,” he explained to me as I looked at him, horrified at the room in the duffel bag the food was taking up. I rolled my eyes and stuffed in some more jewelry.

I slid two bottles of water into the bag and then forced the zipper to close around the mass of items stuffed in one small bag.

“I’m done!” I declared, attempting to lift my bag. He let me struggle for a moment before Edward nudged me aside and lifted the bag, motioning me outside. I sighed, feeling like a frail human, and jumped onto the cement in the blazing sun.

Edward hopped lightly to my side and we met the Cullens, who were anxious to leave.

“How do we plan to get anywhere with that?” Rosalie snapped when she saw the enormous bag Edward was carrying.

“Rose, it’s not that heavy,” Edward snapped at her. Rosalie tossed her long, blonde hair impatiently.

‘Well, let’s get a move on,” she growled. Alice rolled her eyes and gave Edward a quick smile.

“I can carry the bag, Edward,” she offered. He handed over my duffel and turned to me.

“Ready?” he asked. I looked back at the movie set, suddenly slightly nostalgic.

“You’re done with your work, Bella,” Alice pointed out. “You can go.”

“I know,” I sighed, and then turned to Edward. “Then, I guess I am ready. Where are we going?”

Emmett, who had been relatively silent, suddenly snorted with laughter. I turned to him accusingly.

“What?” I asked.

“Uh, Bella,” Edward said, nervously. “There is only one place we can go that the Volturi know you will never agree to.”

I opened my mouth to say I didn’t understand, but sudden realization made me close my mouth and turn to Carlisle, who had decided on the destination, in shock.

“No,” I breathed.

“I’m sorry, Bella,” Carlisle said serenely. “But Edward is right. The Volturi will never expect you to go back willingly.”

I groaned, and protested, “We can go somewhere else! I don’t care! Just not back!”

Carlisle looked at Edward. “We could go somewhere else,” he said.

“Absolutely not,” Edward growled. “Forks is the safest place for her right now, and that is where we are going.”

This time I kept my protests to myself, and sighed my consent. I said, “But how will we get there?”

“Run, of course!” Alice said happily. I groaned again. Great, I was going to be dizzy and in Forks.

“We have to go now,” Edward said. He pulled me up onto his back and we were off.

Getting to Forks did not take long. I could see the gloomy clouds about one mile before we actually entered the small town. We entered through the forest, passing through the meadow where Edward and I first fell in love. Nostalgia hit me like a train, and I bit back tears.

I was finally permitted to jump down when we were at the edge of the forest. Edward, who knew me all too well, reached out to catch me even before my feet hit the ground and immediately gave way. He kept his arms out as I steadied myself and took in my surroundings. I peered out through the trees at the small town I used to know so well.
