The flight went well, and there weren’t any problems, for which I was thankful.

I was standing outside the airport looking for a place to rent a car. I wish I could’ve brought my truck, but that wasn’t possible.

I found the rental place and rented a blue 2005 Chevy Cobalt. I put down the deposit for it and bought a map as well. I pulled out of the parking lot and headed into the remote wilderness of Denali.

I really had no clue where to go, but I had to start somewhere. I decided to go around the Denali National Park. However, I stayed about a mile from the actual edge of it. I figured that being so close to a park, with the animals and stuff, might be a good place to look.

I had been driving through the trees on a slightly over grown path for about an hour, when my car suddenly started whining and slowly came to a stop.

“No, this cannot be happening! I’m in the middle of nowhere,” I shouted.

After sitting in my car for about ten minutes, I realized that no one would come to my rescue way out here. As a result, I got of the car and started walking.

Being my stupid, clumsy self, I soon got completely lost.

“Ah,” I screamed as I kicked one of the frozen trees around me.

Two words, bad idea.

“Ow,” I sighed as I slid down the tree behind me, to sit and assess the damage to my hurt foot.

“Great,” I said softly,” I get to die in some random place in Alaska, looking for a vampire who doesn‘t even love me.” I sighed again.

“Well, I think I might just be able to help with your current… situation,” said a musical voice.

I looked up quickly to fine a beautiful man step out from behind a tree. I quickly recognized the man, from the airport.

He smiled and stepped towards me.

? POV

I was standing about fifty feet away from her and her now broken down vehicle. I chuckled remembering what I had done to the car.

**Flashback**

I saw her go into the little rent-a-car place, and I heard the man who was helping her offer the Chevy Cobalt that was in the back of the lot. “

Perfect,” I said almost inaudibly.

I ran up to the car and quickly rigged the alternator to drain the car’s battery. It was simple really. By the time the car runs out of juice, she will be far out of the range for help.

Well, that is until I come by to help the poor damsel in distress. I laughed again and quickly ran back to my hiding place.

**End Flashback**

Looking distraught, she got out of the dead car and started walking into the forest. As I followed her, I realized that she had no real clue as to which way to go. She soon got mad and kicked a tree. She sat down and started talking to herself.

“Great,” she said softly,” I get to die in some random place in Alaska, looking for a vampire who doesn‘t even love me.”

I took that as my cue.

“Well, I think I might just be able to help with your current… situation,” I said with the nicest voice I could manage. It still sounded a little threatening.

I smiled at her and started to approach her.

“Stop,” she said uneasily.

“Why?” I replied. “I’m only here to help.”

“I know what you are,” she said with a façade of confidence.

“Oh really?” I replied menacingly. “Well then, that gives me all the more reason to take you back with me.” I said smiling.

I ran up to her and gave her a knockout drug so she wouldn’t struggle. She didn’t even know what hit her.

I ran her back to the airport and stole a car. I laid her in the back seat and started driving.

Bella POV

I slowly started to regain consciousness. I started to sit up and ended up falling over.

I moaned softly, and someone turned to look at me from up front.

“Good morning,” a voice said cheerfully. “Did you have a nice nap?” it asked.

I just groaned. I wasn’t going to talk to this person. He sounded sarcastic, so I wouldn’t give him the pleasure of an answer.

“Oh, come on now, don’t be like that,” he smiled.

As he said that, it came back to me. The forest, the airport and maybe that flash I saw, too. My jaw dropped and he laughed.

“What are you doing with me?” I asked worriedly.

“Well, I am taking you back to my masters,” he said as if I should already know.

“Who are your masters?” I asked.

“The Volturi, you know, Aro, Caius, and Marcus,” he said.

“They sound familiar, aren’t they the ruling class of the vampire world?” I asked unsurely.

“So, you aren’t as clueless as I thought,” he said while smiling at me through the rear view mirror. “Yes, that would be them. The Volturi are the law enforcement of the vampire world, as well. They make the laws and enforce them. Which is why I have you right now, I have the duty of taking you to Volterra,” he said, not looking at me.

I sat up and said, “Oh, I see. But, why am I supposed to be taken to them? I’m not a vampire.”

“No, you aren’t, however, one of the most important rules of my world is that humans may not know we exist, and when they do we must destroy them,” he said.

“Oh, I guess that would include me, then?” I asked. He nodded. “How did you find out about me?”

“Well,” he said, “A red haired woman came to us recently and told us about you. She seemed to want revenge on you for some reason. I believe it was because your mate had killed hers or some nonsense like that. We didn’t believe her, but with Aro’s ability, we could see she was telling the truth.”

“What is his ability?” I asked.

“He can read a person’s mind by a simple touch. He can see everything you’ve ever thought or seen.” he replied.

“Wow” I said. It was almost like Edward’s power, but more detailed.

“Yes, so anyway, she said that we should get rid of you because you know too much. However, Aro saw that you weren’t affected by the mind reader’s power, so he said he’d like to meet you before we do anything to you. The female…”

“Victoria,” I said.

“Yeah, that was her name, she didn’t like that so she tried to stand up to Aro, and so he had her killed.”

“Wow, all that fuss over me,” I thought aloud.

“Yes, you are a very interesting human. Oh, and by the way, I‘m Phillip. I am a member of the Volturi’s guard.” He said.

“I’m Isabella, but everyone calls me Bella.” I said. He had introduced himself, and even if he was my captor, I still felt the need to introduce myself.

“Ok, so where is that Cullen boy you were so in love with?” I sighed. He obviously didn’t know why I’d been in Alaska.

“He left me, he said he never loved me,” I said sadly.

“Oh, I’m sorry to hear that. Was that why you went to Alaska? To find him?” he asked.

“Yeah,” I sighed. We had just arrived at an airport in what seemed like Southeastern Canada.

“We can get on a plane now that you’re awake. I couldn’t take you on a plane when you were knocked out. It might have looked suspicious,” he said.

“Oh, well, you could’ve said that I passed out or something, and that we needed to get to Volterra to see our dying uncle.” I said sarcastically. He laughed.

“You know, Bella, you aren’t that bad for a human,” he said as we got out of the car. “Come on, we have a flight to catch,” he said smiling.

I followed. It’s not like I could get away from a vampire. Although, I really didn’t mind. Phillip seemed like an okay person, for a vampire anyway.
