Once seated in the car, she turned to me, her eyes pleading. I didn’t say anything, and only shook my head.
She drove slower than she ever had. It felt like the car was crawling down the dark streets. After nearly an hour we reached the bus depot. I stepped out of the car, and the rain was pouring. I began to shiver slightly even through the heavy jacket that had once been Bella’s.
Alice walked with me to the ticket booth, though I pleaded with her not to. I knew Edward would hear it in her thoughts. A large man seated behind a piece of glass and a microphone looked at us in surprise.
“Awfully late isn’t it?” He asked, I only nodded.
“Where are you headed?” He questioned, his eyebrows raised.
“When is the next bus and where is it going?” I asked him, he looked even more confused.
“Should be here anytime, goin’ towards the Portland Oregon area.” I nodded my head and handed him my credit card.
“May I see some ID ma’am?” He questioned, I felt my heart sink.
“I don’t have it with me.” He handed me back the card.
“I’m sorry then, there is nothing I can do.” I felt the tears spring to my eyes, and Alice stepped in front of me. She surprised me by handing him her credit card and ID.
He looked at her suspiciously.
“Two tickets?” He asked.
“No just one.” She purred, I could tell she was dazzling him. He smiled widely.
“How do I know she ain’t no runaway huh?”
Alice giggled, “I can vouch for her.”
He smiled again, and slid her card. She signed the slip and took the ticket from his hands.
“Thank you.” He nodded his head, and I could feel his eyes on our backs as we walked to the benches seated under a large awning.
“You can still change your mind ya know.” She said sadly once we sat down. I shook my head.
“I’ll find you all again one day. I promise.” She hugged me and I sobbed into her shoulders.
I could see headlights approaching and we stood.
“I love you Alice.” She pulled me into another hug and squeezed me tightly,
“Keep your thoughts to yourself, don’t let him find me.” I whispered into her ear.
“Do this for me please Alice. I will never ask you for another thing again.” She squeezed me tighter.
“I will if you promise you will keep in touch with me.” I nodded my head against her shoulder.
The bus came to a screeching halt next to us, and I tried to pull away but she hugged me tighter.
“Don’t go Heaven.”
I began to sob loudly, and I pulled away again. This time she let go.
“I have to Alice. I have to. Tell everyone I love them.” She grabbed my hand one last time and gave me a sad smile. Tears streamed down my face.
“Goodbye.” I said and boarded the bus waiting in front of me.
