Beck turned around and looked at me expectantly, like she was waiting for something. I just stared at her confused. After a few minutes of that she sighed and looked towards the floor.
“I was hoping that you would remember,” she said quietly. I just cocked my head to the side puzzled. She looked back up to me again and took a deep breath. “I guess that I have to explain it to you, again,” she said sadly. “Hopefully you will believe me.” She rubbed her temples frustrated. “I didn’t do it too much. She’s supposed to remember,” Beck muttered to herself. I was starting to worry. Some random girl showed up at our door, saying that she knew me but I didn’t remember her.
“Beck,” I said as calmly as I could. “Can you tell me what you are?” I asked, trying to stay composed. Beck looked at me, her eyes suddenly filled with confidence.
“Bella,” she said. “I am your guardian angel.”
“What?” I asked, not believing what I just heard. How could I, a vampire, have a guardian angel? I thought that vampires didn’t have souls.
“Oh, crap,” Beck muttered. She then looked around the room, running her hand through her hair. She then closed her eyes and looked like she was in deep thought. I felt the atmosphere change. The air became dense and the room felt like it was spinning. I tried to grab onto Edward, but I couldn’t reach him. I couldn’t see him. Then the spinning started to slow. I fell to the ground, confused beyond belief. I was laying on the ground, and I was too dizzy to see strait. But from what I could make out, everyone else was in the same position.
Beck looked around the room exhausted. She was panting and she stumbled backwards. When she saw our blank faces, her face fell.
“You still don’t remember,” Beck said sadly. I shook my head. I started to stand up, to show her the door since she was starting to frighten me. But then I was hit by a memory.
I turned around to see the girl standing behind me. She looked just like she did in my dreams.
“Wha-what the-” I tried to ask, but my words were stuck on my tongue.
“I’m your guardian angel, Bella,” she explained as if it was completely normal to have an angel appear in front of you. “It looked like you weren’t getting anywhere on your own and I couldn’t make you fall asleep every time I needed to talk to you so here I am! Now, let’s go,” she said. She started to walk along the road, but I caught her sleeve.
“Hey, wait a second. I don’t even know your name! And how do I know that I can trust you?”
“Is there any other explanation that you can think of? And to answer your first question, my name is Rebecca, but you can call me Beck.”
I looked at Beck, my mouth hanging open. Everyone else was staring at her, too. I closed my eyes and looked into everyone’s mind.
“Bella!” I called out. I rushed to Chicago as soon as I saw my vision. Bella ran over to me, jumping onto me as soon as she saw my face.
“Alice! Alice you’re here!” Bella cried. I hugged her back, kicking myself mentally for ever agreeing to leave her. But then Bella started to blink a few times over and over again. Silly, Bella. I’m not a dream.
“I’m here Bella, and I should never of left,” I said soothingly . But then I remembered the situation. “Bella, get behind me,” I muttered. Bella did as I told her to. Then some girl in a white dress came running over next to me. Depending on the look she was giving the…men and Victoria across from us, I could tell that she was on our ‘team’. There were two men in black and red clothing. One I recognized as James. Victoria was there, too. Bella was sure going to get it from me when this was over. But then the three if them ran away, leaving me, Bella, and mystery girl alone.
“Alice, how did you know where to find me?” Bella asked confused. I rolled my eyes again.
“Bella, you seem to have forgotten my power,” I said. “You have some explaining to do, Bella,” I said more seriously. I eyed the girl in all white hesitantly.
“Oh yes! Alice this Beck my…guardian angel,” Bella said timidly. I blinked a few times. Guardian angel? Well, this is Bella we are talking about.
“Hi, I’m Alice,” I said, reaching my arm out.
I was sitting in Montana, miserable as usual. Why did I leave the love of my life? Was I that much of an idiot? I didn’t even know what I was doing there. Something seemed to call me to the random state of Montana. Oh well, I was there wasn’t I?
Just then, a girl in all white dropped from the sky.
“Who are you?” I asked confused and little frightened. The girl looked at me like she expected that much from me. She straitened up, and held her head up high.
“I’m Bella’s guardian angel,” she said confidently. I looked at her in disbelief.
“What?” I asked, even more puzzled then I was before.
“I’m Bella’s guardian angel. She’s miserable, so get your butt down to south Montana, okay?” she said impatiently. She must have been crazy.
“And why should I believe you?” I asked raising an eyebrow. Ha, let her try to explain that to me. But then her hand started to glow. I looked at it confused. Before I had a chance to speak, I felt something hot and hard fly ingot my stomach. I fell to the ground, clutching my stomach in pain. WHAT WAS SHE?
“Now, if you don’t want heaven after you forever, I suggest that you get your unworthy self down to Bella,” she said rudely. Before I could respond, Bella’s guardian angel was gone. I sat up dazed. Could I trust her? I had to since if I didn’t I had no doubt that I would end up doubled over due to her…fiery ball things. I stood up and stared to run down to South Montana.
Everyone else’s memories had to do with the day Edward, Alice, Beck and I arrived at Denali. After all of those flashbacks, I stared open mouthed at Beck. She looked proud of herself.
“You’ll all get the rest of your memories back by the end of the night,” she said confidently. She walked over to an empty seat. She just sat there as forgotten moments of everyone’s lives played through our heads. They were all like journal entries, with pictures to go along with them. It was odd, but exciting at the same time. It was always a thrill to guess what would come next. But the thing I couldn’t grasp was that it was all of our memories. It’s weird to watch yourself do something.
Beck was right, by the end of the night we all had our memories back. We gazed upon Beck like a long lost friend. She didn’t waste anytime though.
“So, we have to discuss your…situation with the Volturi,” Beck said serious. We all straitened our backs, waiting to ask questions later. Beck looked around at each of us, gauging our reactions. “This will be a problem,” she said sadly. “We can’t kill the Volturi, Heaven will have my head on a pike if I do,” she muttered. She then looked up again, turning our attention back to us. “But I can help you send them away,” she said happily.
“Why will they leave us alone?” Rosalie asked impatient.
“Because, when they realize that you all have an angel on your side, they’ll surly leave,” Beck said definite. I was unsure about the plan, but I never had a cause to doubt Beck in the past, as I remembered it. She then looked nervous. “I don’t know if you will all be happy about this, but I enlisted the help of some old…acquaintances of yours,” Beck said suddenly unsure.
There was a knock at the door, and Carlisle got up to answer it.
“I already filled them in on everything,” Beck said quickly. Edward and I looked in the visitors’ minds to see who they were. My mouth dropped open when I heard their thoughts.
Why am I here? I can’t believe I traveled halfway across the country for this…
Just remember, we are fighting vampire, we are fighting vampire, just not the ones that I would like to…
Even though I didn’t have to see it, I looked towards the door. There stood six very tall boys, all looking at us with semi-disgusted looks on their faces.
“Jacob,” I whispered.
