Rating 5/5   Word Count 679   Review this Chapter

We pulled into the ancient city, it was dark by now, and the sun had set. Alice seemed to be on edge. I figured she would be uncomfortable; after all, I was a measly human right in the clutches of evil vampires.

She parked the car in a by a nearby arch. Whether it was a real parking spot, I wasn’t sure. She came and opened my door, gathering our bags as well.

“Bella, I need you to change before we see the Volturi. They believe it to be improper if you are not in their idea of good attire.” She explained calmly and coolly, though I could see past her façade.

“Alright, Alice.” I breathed as I changed into the deep, blue v-neck shirt I had seen, along with black skinny jeans and flats. When I emerged from the car, I felt confident, like I could handle vampires.

“Ready, Bella?” Alice asked before grabbing my hand and leading me towards a massive building. It was ornate, almost a castle.

It was decorated with mosaics of three men, looking eerily similar to the ones I had been fighting in my dream. I shuddered and pressed on, only wanting to save Carlisle.

We entered the castle, ironically through a simple oak door.

Alice lead the way, she had obviously been here before, or seen it in her visions.

The “reception room” was extraordinary, with a high ceiling and beautiful stain glass windows, portraying the same scene as the mosaics.

I gasped in surprise, but Alice grabbed my arm and led me through a pair of giant doors, each with an abnormally large handle.

Seated before us were the three vampires that were in the scene, and before them were Carlisle and Esme, whom was in a sobbing heap.

Carlisle’s head immediately swerved towards the door, and his nostrils flared when he saw me. He bared his teeth at Alice, sending the same message to both of us.

How could you?

The look of betrayal and anger on his features was enough to make me regret my decision a thousand times, although I knew I needed to be here. Whatever reason that was propelling me here was now stronger.

The one with the dark hair stood up, “Welcome, Bella and Alice. It is a pleasure to have you here with us, joining the family, Volturi. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Aro, and these are my brothers and friends Cauis and Marcus.” He gestured toward the snow white men seated beside him.

As a knee-jerk reaction, I bowed my head, Alice simply stood stoic. I was watching them intently, intently enough to see Caius lean over and whisper something in Marcus’s ear. Although I couldn’t hear it, every other vampire could.

“Well, it seems that Caius would like to play a little game.” Aro said joyfully. Carlisle snarled in his direction, and Esme stood up for the first time.

“Caius you see, can sense relationships. And he senses only one true relationship between the three of you.” Aro continued. I walked towards them dutifully.

“I understand.” I said strongly. Esme looked in my direction, pity and anger showing in her eyes. Yet as Aro cleared his throat, she hardened visibly.

“First, we would like you to know that we do not care about the outcome of this. However, since it is clear that you, Bella know our secret, you will have to be made one of us.”

I stared at Carlisle, but he was looking everywhere except at me. He did flinch as Aro said I would have to become vampire, but stayed stoic.

Esme snarled, “How could you not care about the outcome? Here is your chance to rip your biggest threat apart from the inside out, and you don’t even care?”

Aro laughed. “Ah, Esme. You always seem to foil our plans.” Cauis shifted uncomfortably and cleared his throat.

“Ladies, gentleman, would you three stand beside each other?” Aro asked, his voice still light and optimistic.

Carlisle stood in the middle. Esme and I flanked him.

My heart began to race as I realized the moment of truth was coming, and soon.

Caius spoke then. “The true relationship is between Carlisle and…”
