I wasn’t doing anything in particular. Just thinking…as usual. Thinking about how my relationship with Edward had survived the tests of time… unlike Alice and Jaspers. I sighed. We all still know they are perfect for each other, its just that when Maria came to visit, Jasper seemed to remember the good times. When Maria left… Jasper followed. It broke Alice’s little heart. But we all knew they would come together again sooner or later. That Is one thing we were sure of. We were right of coarse. Jasper came to face facts that Alice was the one for him. It took him all but two months to figure that out. By now those two are stronger then ever.
I was so lost in my own thoughts that I didn’t even notice Renesmee, Carlisle and Esme slowly approach me. This is usual… but this time there was something wrong with this picture. Something very wrong.
Carlisle’s face was blank… lifeless. Much unlike the face he usually has on. The one full of wisdom, kindness, and generosity.
While Esme’s face was far from composed. She was sobbing tearless, broken hearted sobs. Unable to even speak. Or breathe, even though she doesn’t have to.
Renesmees face was the hardest to observe. Hers was somewhat a mix of the two. If even possible. There were tears down her cheeks, while her face was expressionless. And there was a look of hatred and agony in her eyes so intense I was afraid she was going to jump out of her daze and kill me right there!
Combining all of these faces I knew something wasn’t right. Was someone hurt? Was someone…. Dead? No, I couldn’t bare to think it. But I still couldn’t help counting off who wasn’t present.
Alice, Jasper, Rosalie, Emmett… Edward… no. I could not think it. I’m sure I’m just over thinking things through again.
“Bella…” Carlisle finally spoke. With these words came a small sob.
“ what is it? What’s wrong?” I would be a fool to think everything was ok…
“ Bella… Edward…” from then on his words came in a rush.
“ the volturi found him… asking if he would give them Alice or face death. He would never give up another family member so…”
“they killed him Bella… they killed him.” his voice rang with a intense fury.
“they. Killed. Edward.” each word was a sentence in its own as to the fact that those words just didn’t seem to fit together… all at once.
“yes.. I am so sorry Bella… we all are.” said Esme finally speaking up. She said this between sobs.
I wasn’t listening anymore, the words couldn’t seem to make sense. It was like the world is crashing down on me. Truth breaking through the walls that hold back all pain. The hole in my chest that was present when he left me the first time was back. Here to stay this time….
I began to sob uncontrollably. Shaking, in anger. An anger so pure and direct that I could have uprooted the tree behind me without breaking a sweat. If my heart were beating… it would have broken. Shattered into a million pieces.
The world seemed to stop spinning in this very moment. The moment I knew what I must do. Revenge. Me and Edward were a united front. Kill one, kill the other. But I wont go without taking the Volturi down with me. I know they will kill me and that I don’t stand a chance… but isn’t that the point?
“mom, I know what your thinking and its not worth it. How do you think we would stand it if both of you were lost?” finally spoke renesmee.
“renesmee, I have to… and you know it.”
“mom!” she cried… sobbing as well now.
At this point I got up, and gave each of them a kiss… bid goodbyes.
“you don’t have to do this Bella!” cried Esme.
It was to late… I was running.
I was running faster then my legs have ever carried me before. Running straight to the newly built airport in Forks. (the town had gotten a tad bigger in the past 500 years).
As I burst through the gate blocking off the entrance into the Cullen mansion I felt a huge blow to the face. I feel to the floor still shaking from the pure hate and fury towards the Volturi. Still sobbing from the ultimate loss…
I looked up to see the cause of this blow… I sighed. Emmett.
“ Bella, we are all devastated, even Rosalie. But this does NOT help matters.” he said, trying to convince me to not go off on myself.
“ Emmett you don’t understand! How can I ever go on without him? I cant Emmett I just cant!” I was screaming now…
“ Isabella Cullen! You will NOT do this. I forbid it. We all do.”
“ what would you ever do if this was Rosalie?!” I replied.
“ that’s different!” yes it was different. What Edward and me had was so much more.
“how? Give me one good reason!” I said in a now soft tone in comparison to my earlier shrieking.
“ she can live without her parents. I have lived without them for 460 years! I could go on…”
“ I don’t care what you have to say Bella, your not going.” and with that he picked me up, and held me in a position so I could not escape.
“NO!” I screamed. “ no you cant take away my only escape! The only way to escape my pain, my misery!”
“ Bella get control of yourself!” said Rosalie speaking for the first time.
“ no one gets it! No one! You all have each other! Never to lose the one you love!” great… I was sobbing tearless sobs again.
No one said anything. Just looked at me with pity clear on there faces, and took me into the house. I was thrashing like a five year old in a tantrum. No one understood... How could they?
