Jasper’s POV

“Congratulations young one.” Aro smiled down at me. “I know you will do well.” He turned from me to the other members of the guard. “Jane, Felix, Alec, and Chelsea; go with Jasper to look for the abominations.”

They selected people walked toward me and formed into a tight circle around the spot in which I was standing. I could feel a very devious feeling coming from the small brunette girl below me, obviously ready to punish me were I not to follow Aro’s simple directions. A feeling of pride was spreading through Chelsea to my right while smug satisfaction was coursing through both Felix and Alec.

The mixed emotions, all very powerful, made me feel small within the circle. I tried radiating a bit of fear and anxiousness over to them, but it did not do much. They all flinched simultaneously, but only for a single moment, their feelings much too strong to be overturned.

“Are you coming?” an annoyed Chelsea asked.

“Oh, um, okay.” I tried to cease the worried thoughts running through my mind to become just a small murmur. It worked, although it kept coming back up and I would have to push it right back down. The feeling did not frighten me for I knew why it was present. Who would not be even a little frightened by the idea of hunting down his own wife? Of course, I did not plan on bringing her any harm, but the prospect that the others might made me wish I could just ask Alice what was going to happen. I wasn’t used to not knowing what was happening next, always having Alice by my side to inform me.

I followed them out of the front door and into the silent nighttime calm. It felt more like the calm before the treacherous storm. It was to be life changing, to determine my entire future.

By this time, I was wondering why Alice had not seen me taken and come for me yet. Did this mean that there was a good outlook in the future? Or would I do more good to them as a member of the Volturi? Either option seemed plausible. Then again, there were so many other possibilities out there, so many variables that must be set in place in order for a happy future to occur. That possibility was all I could count on at a time like this.

We loaded into a small car, crammed in as if we were sardines. I was definitely not comfortable in the back-middle seat. It is not easy to relax when you have an evil, powerful little girl on one side, and an absolutely huge man of muscle comparable to Emmett on the other.

I noticed a young man I recognized to be Demetri trailing behind on foot. Aro must have sent him as a last minute thought. None of the others seemed to even take notice of him.

When Chelsea stopped the speeding car, we were at the site of my kidnapping. I was rushed out and immediately started running out into what I knew would be a trail of my scent leading to the others. It was heartbreaking to think that I was the one to cause such terrible things, but I had only been trying to hunt.

The thought of hunting brought the heavy burn in my throat to the forefront of my mind. I stopped for only a minute and ran off to grab a passing buck. When I was finished, I turned to see a series of jaw-dropped faces behind me.

“Why are you drinking from that repulsive thing?” Alec questioned me disgustedly.

“I was thirsty,” I replied innocently. They continued to stare at me like I had committed some rotten crime. It was extremely discomforting.

“Then why didn’t you grab someone while we were going through town?” Alec asked.

“I don’t drink from humans. I stopped that habit many years ago.”

“Why?” Alec almost yelled.

“I don’t like feeling the emotions of a dying human. It is much easier to feed from an animal.”

“You are a very odd man.”

The rest turned back and followed the path after their beloved tracker with me right on their heels.

I caught a scent of what I knew could only be Alice, as well as a hint of Edward and Bella. The thought that these terrible people might actually find me terrified me greatly. How could I protect them from all of these strong fighters and gifted people? Sure, I could make them feel guilty, but that wouldn’t take away their personality traits. Especially those little twins.

Here I was with the enemy, joining forces, being forced to go against the people I love. I should be with them, using my powers to push them away instead of reeling them in. I felt like I was committing the utmost betrayal going through with this.
