Jacob’s Point of View

There were no words to explain how utterly and tremendously mad I was at this moment. He was back. Felix. And I could smell him. I followed his scent straight into the woods knowing he would be there willing and waiting- he wanted to know where Renesmee was but I wouldn’t tell him to save my useless life. When I finally entered the clearing where he was waiting his back was turned to me with his hands on his hips. I could’ve had him right there if I wanted but something told me I wanted to know what he was going to say. I waited for him to turn around and stared him straight in the eye ready to phase at any second. But when he turned around I was confused by the sad look on his face- he was remembering and it hurt. Good though, that blood sucker should be ashamed of what he did. He was a rapist, a killer of dreams and most of all he was the reason my Nessie ran away.

“Felix.” I said.

“Jacob.” He replied, hands still on his hips gazing somewhere beyond me, maybe into another world.

“What are you doing here? Come to collect your prize?” I growled obviously angry.

“Not exactly. What prize have I to gain but a ruined life?” I was thrown back by his answer but regained my posture in a second. Did he actually feel sorry?

“You should’ve thought of that before.” I said, anger still burning inside me.

“I’m sorry Jacob but I was a monster then. I’ve come to tell you that I’m going to look for Renesmee. I understand that she ran away but I need to find her so I could locate- the child.” He choked on the words. Hopefully he choked to death.

“I’m not going to help you look for her.” I said hoping he didn’t have some mystical mind powers that enabled him to see inside of my head. I knew where Ness was alright but I wasn’t going to tell him, I had kept away from her for that very purpose. That Demitri guy could track me I know but couldn’t track her, Alice knew that from the visions she had. Demitri couldn’t find her and as long as I wasn’t around he couldn’t find me either.

“Don’t make me force you Jacob, I don’t want to do this.” He murmured. I shook with anger.

“Force me then.” I snapped. All of a sudden like a flash of lightning his hands were wrapped around my throat ready to break my neck any second.

“If you just tell me, then maybe I’ll bring her back to you safely. Until then I’ll just cut off your circulation so that no matter what I find she can never some back to anything but a corpse.” Slowly I could feel my eyes drooping. “Tell me or she dies!” He bellowed.

“Maine! She’s in Houlton, Maine!” I shouted, crumpling to the ground beneath me. I had betrayed her. I had betrayed her like so many other time before.

Renesmee’s Point of View

The plane landed an hour after hour little tiff, I was glad it had come to a screeching halt though, afraid I was going to rip his head off right then and there for just breathing. I couldn’t stand how god damn good he was acting- as if he had never done anything at all, it made me even angrier then him being an ass to me. I slowly trudged through the crowd of unaware citizens behind Felix, gripping Dawn in my hands tightly, wishing that I was any where but here, Forks even- which I found especially unappealing even when I was there. All the darkness and no light, how did people not know that something incredibly wrong was going on there? When we broke from the busy terminal into the open Italian air I was almost stunned by the purity of it because I had been sitting next to the over bearing smell of Felix all day. Then as we glided forward to the pick-up loop I almost stopped in my track- I recognized Jane waiting by a sleek looking, dark blue Mercedes.

I had never had any problems with Jane before, when I first came to Volterra all those years ago I was barely even in her company. However, my mothers horror stories about how she wanted to kill me when I was just a newborn and had the appearance of an immortal child, always made me have some serious underlying caution towards her. That, her brothers sick involvement in my rape and the eerie pain power she had all contributed to my little tiny but oh so there fear of her. It was insane. When I saw her leaning against the car and her eyes met mine she made an expression I couldn’t quite understand- confusion? pain? shame. I bet she was embarrassed to be in the presence of someone her brother had seen being raped and didn’t help, she could probably understand my problem more then anyone. She was a girl after all. When we got to the car she gave me an awkward smile and opened the door for me and Dawn but Felix didn’t get in with me. She shut the door quietly and I listened to them whisper outside my door.

“Felix you didn’t tell me she was coming!” She said through clenched teeth. “What am I supposed to say to her? You know how absolutely uncomfortable this is?” He rolled his eyes and looked at her with an irritated face.

“Uncomfortable for you? What about me?”

“To think what Alec and Demitri would say about this! You’ll be the laughing stock of the guard! Do you think she’s going to be safe with us?” She let out an exasperated breath and sighed.

“I couldn’t just leave her there! She was torn apart!” He said his whispers getting more violent.

“Well who was the one doing all the tearing?” Jane accused.

“Look Jane you know me now…it’s different then before. Just humor her or something she’s acting like a complete bitch but I just can’t let her go.” I growled silently, they heard and looked in my direction. Felix opened my door quickly and peeked his head in for a second.

“I’m going to run a few errands real fast but Jane will take you to the city.” He paused for a second not sure how to end it. “Goodbye.” I slammed the door shut but not fast enough, his head swung out right before I hit it. Jane climbed in and fastened her seat belt carefully. Now why would she go and do that? I held dawn even tighter then before and she glanced at me in the rearview mirror. I wanted her to say something, anything to end this annoying bulk of silence. Finally she spoke.

“I’m sorry I haven’t been more hospitable but I didn’t expect you were coming. Felix told me he would ask you but he’s not always the best with words. I hope he didn’t force you to come because my intentions are not to keep you hostage or anything.” It was quiet for a minute and though I was still suspicious of her intentions I managed a brief ‘okay.’

“I’m- wow I really don’t know how to say this but I’m really sorry for what he did. I always imagined Felix as my little brother but I never dreamed he would do something like that and as for my real brother I can only tell you how disappointed I was in him. He got a good scolding when he came home. Very thorough.” She darted through traffic quickly and looked at me again for any sign that I would accept her apology.

“Whatever.” I shrugged.

“He’s different now Renesmee-“

“It’s Vanessa now or just Nessa.” I interrupted her.

“Okay Nessa…” She said a little jazzed that I had responded with something more then a one word sentence. “Like I was saying he’s changed. Something happened to him that makes him different now- not as volatile.” My ears perked up at this new shred of information, I was always a goober for gossip.

“Do explain.” I said interested enough to have her go on.

“When he came back Aro was pleased with his actions but most others in the guard were simply repulsed and disgusted. We started giving him the hard jobs- the dirty work that no one wanted to do. He started carrying out executions to older vampires, everyone hoping he would die. Aro was unaware at the time and we tricked him into thinking he was just fine with this. One day he had to go off to Germany to kill elders that had alerted some farmers there of are existence. They must have gone insane or something because by the time he got there hey were running around all over the place just doing whatever they liked. The elders were his mother and his younger sister.”

“Felix has a mother? I thought bastards were always motherless?” I huffed.

“Felix wasn’t always a bastard you know.” Jane said smiling.

“So what happened, did he kill them?” I asked still intrigued and to be honest a bit sympathetic.

“Worse. Aro knew about this execution and he was feeling especially unmerciful that day, so he ordered Felix to bring them in to see him. After killing all the farmers and hiding the bodies, trying to delay his family’s undoubted fate, he finally served them to Aro. He wanted to imprison them here forever and didn’t even care that they were related to Felix. They broke the law and that was final.”

“So what his mother and sister are trapped in a dungeon underneath Volterra now?” I asked sarcastically.

“Yes.” She said very seriously as if it caused her a little pain to.

“Whoa, that explains why he’s been so fucking nice all this time.” I grunted.

“Please don’t tell him I told you- he’d be furious. He doesn’t talk about it to anyone Ness and im not so sure why he’s changed but I know he’s definitely different now- for the better.”

“It must have snapped him back into reality.” I whispered. It was silent for a couple of seconds before I noticed we were inside Volterra already.

“But I really am sorry though. There’s no excuse for what he did.” Jane finally said ending the conversation.
