Bella’s POV

“Visitors? Visitors as in relatives from out of town, or visitors as in some kind of supernatural being intent on killing and/or harnessing her freaky mind shielding self?” I wasn’t sure if Emmett was serious or trying to lighten the mood. I was seriously hoping he was trying to lighten the mood.

“I don’t know, “Alice said, “I think it’s a little bit of both.”

“Both? What do you mean both?” I was feeling a little desperate, “I’d think I’d have noticed if any of my relatives were prone to acts of the supernatural, and for that matter, what relatives? My dad has a couple of cousins he talks to, but they’re over in Maine, and I think Charlie would have mentioned people coming to stay with us.”

Edward had been quiet, and that was worrisome. When Edward was this quiet it meant he was forming a plan, and I would be willing to bet that he was debating whether to just pick me up and run me as far away from Forks as possible, or to stay and wait out the threat. Finally he opened his mouth, “Bella, do you want to stay here?”

I was shocked; he was letting me decide what to do. Before I could open my mouth to reply he started to speak again, “I want you to think about this very carefully, if these people are a threat there is no guarantee that I’ll be able to get you out once they are here. However if we leave now we should be able to get away before they even get to Washington-”

He was cut off be Alice, “Umm, actually Edward, they’ve just entered Forks, they’ll be at Bella’s house in about ten minutes.”

Well, that settled that.

“Well, we better get over there,” Emmett said, then noting the surprised expression on my face. “What? You didn’t think we’d let you go alone did you.”

Morgan’s POV

I had no idea what to expect from this girl. Best-case scenario, she accepted everything I told her without too many questions and submitted to Hunter and me guarding her. Worst-case scenario… well I didn’t even want to go there. I suppose if Amyrath already got to her and she was evil that I could deal with it; after all, I’d been there before.

Forks seemed reminiscent of Widow’s Vale. I t was a small town, the kind where everybody knew everybody else. I’d been told that Bella’s father was the chief of police, and that I wasn’t to notify him of anything, as he wasn’t really in any danger. Besides, if Bella didn’t want him to know, well, I could defiantly understand that.

It was strange I had so few blood relatives that I really wanted to get to know this girls. I knew I had three half-siblings, but that was really it. And out of those three I’d only ever met Killian. I sincerely hoped that this girl would be nothing like Killian, not that Killian was bad, but I just wasn’t up for another party child.

Hunter pulled into a driveway, “We’re here love, are you ready?”

I laughed, “As ready as I’ll ever be. Let’s go.”

I got out of the car and walked up to ring the doorbell.
