12. Allegra: Get Away

Rating 5/5   Word Count 1034   Review this Chapter

Meanwhile, at the big house...

As soon as Carlisle, Ansel, and Athena had pulled away from the house, Emmet and Demetri let go of me.

“Okay, I know you're totally old enough and all... but really, Demetri? Really, Allegra?” said Felix, scratching his head.

“Shut up!” exclaimed Jane, punching him in the arm. “They're cute and you know it!”

“Ow...” murmured Felix.

I looked down, embarrassed that I had tried to eat Ansel's girlfriend, and also got caught being kissed. I knew I shouldn't be embarrassed, but I was.

Demetri took my hand and pulled me out of the house before anyone could say anything else. I thought I heard Jack mutter something about us, but I ignored it. The family told us that as long as were were staying with them, we could use their vehicles whenever we pleased. My mom's car, which was black, and probably very expensive, was the one Demetri chose.

When the door was closed, and we were quite a way down the road, Demetri spoke.

“Are you okay?” he asked.

I nodded. “I lost control,” I murmured.

“I had no idea that you would react like that. I'm so sorry,” he said, squeezing the steering wheel.

“For what?” I placed my head against the window and closed my eyes.

“I just should have known,” he replied.

I laughed shortly. “Like you could have known about that... I didn't even know about that.” I sighed. “I just am so sorry for Ansel and Allegra. He didn't need to see me react like that.”

He grabbed my hand. “Don't you feel guilty, Allegra. This isn't your fault. If it's anyone's fault, it's Aro's, okay?”

“It seems that a lot of things are Aro's fault. The only reason my mom was made into a vampire was because of Aro. He was the one who wanted to keep me away from her... and she's a great mom. You can see it in the way she talks to Ansel.”

“That's just the way Aro is. He is very selfish... and he likes to collect things,” said Demetri. There was a hint of disgust in his tone.

“Collect?” I asked.

He nodded. “Have you not noticed? Every exceptional vampire, not including the clan here, is a part of the Volturi. You know how Aro treats us. We are more like pets than family members. The clan here is a family... Volterra is like a zoo,” explained Demetri.

“And that's why Aro wanted me?”

“Yes. He saw the potential in you the second he saw you. I don't know what it was.”

I shook my head. I didn't like the thought of being considered an item. I wasn't some trophy that was going to sit nice and pretty in Aro's massive, and not to mention sick, collection. But when I was with my real family, it was much different. I felt like part of a team, like I was accepted. There was no nasty Heidi or controlling Aro. It was nice.

“Where are we going?” I asked.

“A hotel in Seattle. I figured you wouldn't want to deal with Felix. I know he just got here, but I can only take so much of him, really. And maybe you should give Ansel some time to cool down, too,” said Demetri.

“Good idea,” I said. When I was away from Felix, I missed him like crazy... but when I spent time around him, I just wished he would go away. I had a feeling he and Emmett would get along very well. They practically had the same personality.

About a half hour later, Demetri pulled into the parking lot of the biggest hotel he could find. He had a bit of a weakness for expensive things. His credit card, which linked back to the Volturi's huge bank account, was always in his pocket.

“The only things I miss about Volterra are my cars,” he sighed, pulling into the valet. He always knew what I was thinking.

As soon as we entered the hotel, people started to stare. The girls would look at Demetri, and the guys would look at me.

One of them even had the nerve to walk right up to me while Demetri got us a room.

“Hey, baby. How would you like to go out with me tonight?” he asked, leaning close to me.

I heard Demetri finish with the receptionist.

“Hey, Demetri!” I called. “This guy wants me to go out with him tonight.”

Demetri was by my side so quickly, I was sure it looked very strange to anyone who happened to be watching us. The man's face instantly fell.

“I don't think it would be in 'this guy's' best interest to go out with you tonight,” growled Demetri.

“Damn,” muttered the man. He was clearly quite afraid. He turned around, and walked away as fast as he could without sprinting.

I giggled. “Poor guy.”

He wrapped his arm around my waist. “He's a creep.” He towed me to the elevators.

“Which floor are we on?” I asked.

He chuckled. “The top floor, of course.” The elevator door slid open, and he pushed me inside. There was one slot for a hotel key, and he slipped ours in.

“Oh yes, of course,” I laughed.

When the elevator doors opened, there was no hallway. There was just a massive entryway. Demetri would have gotten the most expensive room available, and of course the top floor would be it.

To the right, there was a counter that extended into the kitchen. It was a very open floor plan. Even the bed was in the main room.

“There wasn't anything bigger?” I joked.

“I checked. And Allegra?” he asked.

“Hmm?”

He pushed me softly against the counter. He placed a hand on my waist. “I've been wanting to do this for so long,” he whispered.

I didn't even wait for him to make the first move. I threw my arms around his neck and kissed him. He gripped my waist tightly, and I hopped onto the counter. I wrapped my legs around him. My hands lingered at the edge of his shirt. I was just about to pull it off when... his cell phone rang.

“Damn,” he breathed.

“Damn,” I agreed. I was beginning to hate the invention too.
