Rating 5/5 Word Count 1509 Review this Chapter
The Thursday night before Angela and I were leaving Charlie had invited Billy, Seth Clearwater and his mother Sue over for dinner. Seth was a few years younger than I was, just barely turned fifteen; he was also one of the newest of the werewolves, having just changed about a month ago. The difference between Seth and the rest of the pack, though, was that he hadn’t judged the Cullens in any negative way, saying that he didn’t know them so how could he hate them? That was one of the reasons that I enjoyed being around Seth, he didn’t hold it against me or constantly question me on how I still remained loyal to the Cullens, even if they were vampires. Seth has such a refreshing attitude in that he doesn’t care what someone is, only just what kind of person they are.
After the Clearwaters and Billy had left for the evening I decided to call Angela to verify what time she was picking me up in the morning. We were going in her care because I didn’t know if my beloved truck could survive the long trip; plus her car got better gas mileage than my finely aged truck.
I said goodnight to Charlie and went upstairs to my room to call Angela on my cell phone. She said she’d be at my house by 8:30 am so that we’d be able to spend more of our weekend in the town we’d be staying. After I hung up with her I double-checked what I had packed for my five day trip. We were going to skip school Friday- with Charlie’s permission- and a stay in the town till about Tuesday of the following week, which was our Spring Break. When I had thought of the trip and told my dad about it, he whole heartedly said yes, realizing that this was one thing that I needed to do.
The next morning Angela and I were on our way, discussing what we were going to do the next few days. When we decided where we were going to on this trip we had looked up what the small town had to offer: unique little shops, pretty views of the ocean, and natural trails to wonder through but didn’t require much hiking. Hiking wasn’t necessarily one of my strong suites.
We arrived at our hotel around 10 am. and got settled into our room. The room had two single beds, a small eating area and kitchenette; it also had a sliding glass door that lead out to a deck that we shared with the two other rooms that were on either sides of us.
We spent the rest of the day walking around and getting familiar with the town. Angela and I also figured out what we were going to do after breakfast tomorrow.
The next day after breakfast we had decided to visit the beach for a little while and then look around town. We ate lunch at a small café around 1:15 pm and then walked down one of the natural trails that the town contained. We took our time through the trail; even though it was full cloud coverage that day, it was still nice outside.
After we grabbed a quick bite to eat for an early dinner we returned to our room just a little before 6 pm. We had only been in our room for maybe ten minutes when there was a knock on our door. Angela went and opened the door to see that one of the hotel staff members.
“Hello, sorry to disturb you,” she said apologetically.
“Of course not,” replied Angela. “How can we help you?”
“Well, the family next door has just lost a member of their family, a son,” she informed us. “The hotel would be grateful, and I’m sure the Cullens would appreciate it, if you’d be able not to be very loud in your room tonight.”
“The Cullens?” Angela asked with a dubious look on her face.
“Yes ma’am,” she confirmed. “Thank you.” And with that sentiment the hotel employee quietly shut our door.
Angela turned around to face me. “Oh no,” she said.
“Don’t, please,” I softly requested.
Angela halted any words she was about to say and slightly nodded her head yes. The look she was sending me was full of sorrow and sympathy. She knew I was close to the Cullen family and understood how I was feeling, somewhat.
“Um. I think I need a few minutes alone. That is, maybe I should go- I mean to see…them.” I managed to stutter out. “I have to know whose not- there,” I added quietly.
“Ok. I’ll leave so you can do what you need to. I’ll go look around town for a little while; I’m taking my phone, call me if you need anything okay?” Angela said as she grabbed her room key, purse, and cell phone.
I gave her a small look of thanks and nodded my head a little. She left with one last concerned look and softly shut the door behind her.
I took a deep breath and went towards the sliding glass door that would lead me onto the shared deck; it faced the parking lot. I went over to the railing and scanned through the vehicles, looking for any of the cars that I had seen nearly every day four months ago. As I looked around I spotted a glossy black Mercedes and a red BMW convertible: Carlisle’s and Rosalie’s cars.
I turned to my left and slowly made my way towards the room’s window that would she me the faces of my former family of vampires. I reached their door and saw all of their beautiful faces; that’s when I started to clarify who was all present and accounted for. Carlisle, Esme, Emmett, Rosalie, Jasper, Alice…and no Edward; he was the missing son.
Their glass door was slightly open. For usually being very perceptive vampires none of them have noticed me standing there, watching them through the glass. The all had understandably worried expressions, though Alice’s was also filled with a lost look, like she was blind and couldn’t see something- or someone. I could hear them talking so I decided to listen while I still went unnoticed by them; none of them were facing the window.
“I don’t understand! Why can’t I see him?” Alice asked no one in particular. “This is as far as we were able to track Edward and all I’ve been able to see is vague pieces of him in the woods but yet we can’t even catch his scent out there.” Alice softly wailed.
“Alice, try to calm down,” Carlisle spoke.
“But it’s been two weeks, Carlisle! What are we going to do?” She asked in a small voice, a slight tremor sneaking through it.
Two weeks? I thought to myself. He’s been gone for two weeks?! Wait a minute- Jacob and the most of the others of the wolf pack have been gone for two weeks. Could it be related? I new the pack, at least Jake’s group hated the Cullens; Jake specifically hated Edward. But how did they get Edward? He had to of been coming this way and had gotten caught somehow. As fast as Edward is, and even with his gift, he wouldn’t be able to escape or even fight off six or more of the wolves.
Wait- Alice said the glimpses that she’s had were of the woods...
I had a dream, or rather nightmare, last night. It was of Edward and he was sprawled against a huge boulder in a small clearing in the woods. One of his arms was ripped off along with having many large shards of some type embedded in his midsection and a thigh. He was surrounded by wolves, lead by a large russet colored one. Russet color…Jake! Jake was the russet colored wolf of the La Push Pack.
That’s when I realized that it wasn’t just a nightmare that I had, it was now real and that meant that I could save him.
I focused back onto the Cullens. At that exact moment Alice looked straight at me and whispered my name, “Bella.”
I slid the door open all of the way and rest of them whipped their heads around to look at me. They were shocked to see me there, to say the least. All of their faces wore a heartbroken look. If it were possible, Esme looked as if she were going to cry harder even though tears could not fall down her loving face.
Alice started towards me when a large bolt of lightning flashed in the sky and left a resounding boom of thunder.
I found my voice and said with an unwavering tone, “I’ve seen where he is. Listen for me.”
And before any of them could blink I leapt over the deck railing and landed on the pavement of the parking lot, two stories down. As I landed, another flash of lightning followed by a clap of thunder happened again. I ran into the woods, faster than any of my vampires were able.
Unbeknownst to everyone, I had a few secrets of my own…
