When I woke up, Edward was sitting next to me, watching me.

"Oh god, I'm sorry. I just fell asleep," I said, stammering and trying to get up quickly. My legs had fallen asleep because I'd been sitting on them and I fell over. Edward caught me.

"The others want to talk to you," he said. His expression was grave and I didn't like his tone. He led me downstairs.

"Oh, finally" said Rosalie.

"She was asleep," Edward said. I took a chair he pulled out for me.

"Well, we had a discussion regarding the difficult situation we find ourselves placed in," said Carlisle "You see, humans are not allowed to know about us unless we intend to kill or turn them"

"I got that from the fact that two of you tried to kill me," I said.

"My apologies" said jasper, smiling at me. I was deeply unnerved.

"Jasper comes from an age of different laws. He's seen what the Volturi can do when they punish people, he was worried for his family's safety" said Esme.

"Nothing personal, Bella" said Emmett, smiling. I was really getting freaked out by all the smiling. Edward wasn't smiling and neither was Rosalie.

"We decided it's best for you if you do become a vampire," Edward growled.

"You guys voted on this?"

"Yes" said Carlisle "I'm sorry Bella but it was this or kill you"

"You mentioned some people called the Volturi? How will they find out?"

"The Volturi are our kind of royal family. We are a large coven and they might consider us a threat. It's possible that they've placed us under surveillance," explained Jasper.

"So...when is this going to happen?" I asked, afraid.

"We shouldn't put this off. The only problem is you won't be able to be around humans and it will look strange if you disappear from school"

"I don't care," I thought about being immortal. It looked lonely. Then I saw Edward by my side. All my fear vanished.

"I'm ready," I said.

"NO!" shouted Edward. He got up and pushed away from the table.

"I can't believe you're agreeing to this! Bella, you have your entire life ahead of you! We don't know that the Volturi are watching us and yet we're going to ruin a life on a possibility! We could at least wait until after graduation"

"It's too long Edward!" I said. He looked startled.

"I'm sorry, but I'm with your family. It's too dangerous," I told him. He turned and left the room.

"Are you sure about this Bella?" asked Carlisle.

"Yes" I said, though my voice wavered.

"No" said Alice "If we turn her now, something bad will happen. We should wait"

"But...you voted to turn her Alice!" said Jasper.

"Instead of killing her as some people wanted too," she said "But I can see something now...if we turn her now...something bad will happen"

"So we wait until the danger has past?"


"Good" said Edward, returning to the room.

A week later, Carlisle called me to his study. I assumed it was that Alice had seen the danger had passed and wanted to discuss turning me again (while Edward and the others were out hunting). I entered his study. He had a very peculiar look on his face.


"Bella...I have some news" the doorbell rang.

"I'll get that," I said "Be right back" I turned and headed down. I opened the front door.
