Edward’s POV

I was ecstatic. I was going to see my Bella again! I now know for the future to never stay away from her that long again. But, it was worth it, in order to keep her safe from that horrid James. I would not be able to live if she was dead. How could I? I would never see her blush again, or stumble over her own feet. I would never be able to smell her wonderful smell again, to hear the increase in her heartbeat when I hold her warm hand in mine. No, it was absolutely intolerable to keep living, if my Bella could not.

Suddenly, a voice over the airplane’s loudspeaker interrupted my thoughts. ”We appear to be running ahead of schedule. Flight 368 will now land ten minutes early. Enjoy the rest of your flight!”

This news only made me happier. That didn’t help with the waiting though. It just made me more impatient.

Calm down, son, Carlisle thought next to me. We’ll be there soon enough, and then you can spend as much time as you want with Bella.

“I know Carlisle,” I whispered. “It just makes me more impatient, though, that I could probably run to her faster than this wretched plane is going right now.”

After fifteen long minutes, the plane finally touched down. I quickly unbuckled myself. If it hadn’t been for the restraining hand of my father figure next to me, I probably would’ve burst through the plane door into the airport before they could even open it.

Just wait, Edward. Bella’s not going anywhere. The humans will surely notice if somebody runs at an unbelievable speed through an closed metal door, Carlisle thought, seeing what I was about to do.

After five excruciating minutes, they finally opened the plane doors. I shoved past the humans and ran at human speed into the terminal, only to find three empty seats where Bella, Alice, and Jasper should have been sitting.

Down the long hall, I quickly spotted Alice and Jasper.

“She’s not in there! We have to find her before Edward gets here! He’ll kill us if he knew we lost her!” Alice said.

I was shocked. I ran over to them as fast as I could without revealing our secret.

“What happened?!” I asked through clenched teeth. “Where is Bella?!”

“Well…Jasper took Bella to get something to eat and then she went into the bathroom and disappeared,” Alice said nervously.

I was infuriated. Jasper was trying to calm me down, but even he could not suppress the amount of anger I was filled with. I was struggling now, Carlisle and Emmett had finally gotten off the plane and were restraining me from ripping Alice and Jasper’s heads off.

Then I saw a vision fill Alice’s head. It was Bella, in a ballet studio, with James stepping on her leg, snapping her bone cleanly in two.

A growl rumbled in my chest. I would not let that happen, I would change that vision! I was not just going to let James suck her dry while I stood here fighting Alice and Jasper. I would get to them later.

“Follow me!” I said, starting to run for the parking garage. I was going too fast to pass for anything less than a human who had won a gold medal at the Olympics in track. But I didn’t care. My Bella was in danger! Why should I care what those idiotic humans think?

Once I was in the parking garage, I ran faster looking for the fastest car possible. I didn’t have time to go looking for Carlisle’s black Mercedes when Bella was going to be attacked. I found a bright red corvette with a dark tint on the windows and quickly got in and backed out.

I was already zooming away, as I saw Carlisle, Emmett, Alice, and Jasper running towards the Mercedes. As they passed Alice showed me a vision of the outside of the ballet studio. She zeroed in on the street signs and the address so that I would know where to go.

I weaved through the cars on the streets at a blinding speed. I had to get to Bella before James could. I wouldn’t let that vision happen!

Just as I pulled into the ballet studio parking lot I heard a bloodcurdling scream rip through the air.
