We travelled for three days through the depths of the freezing ocean. No one was happy that we had had to swim instead of taking the more comforting way of flying in an airplane. At least we had gotten away; even I was surprised at that fact.
The waves carried over us, sometimes lifting us up with them, others completely submerging us. I could see the fear in Bella’s eyes as the waves came up and over; she was always worrying about petty human things that could not harm us. It was definitely upsetting to watch, so I tried to hold onto her as much as I could, though that was not always possible swimming in the ocean.
Other than watching Bella’s fearful eyes, the long swim was extremely tedious. The ocean was supposed to be a beautiful place, but it wasn’t so beautiful when you had to swim in it. The middle of the Atlantic Ocean in late October was not a comfortable one. I would imagine it would have felt better to be swimming in warmth even while it would not change the already frigid temperature of our bodies.
I peered off at the horizon as I swam. It could’ve been a glorious sunset filled with shades of pink, yellow, orange and red; but instead it was one of cloud cover, very reminiscent of home. I knew from this simple fact that we had been heading North toward Europe, instead of the searing heat that would’ve been waiting for us had we been heading directly East to Africa. The realization comforted me, allowing me to think more coherently with one less worry engorging my mind.
The salt was brought into my nose as the waves rolled over once again. I don’t know how the humans could stand so much of it. It was bad enough in their tiny shakers in the middle of dining room tables, let alone in large masses throughout the Earth’s oceans. Maybe it was only humans that had not been exposed to the sea that glorified the substance. Maybe those who sailed frequently hated the smell and taste. Or maybe, they loved it. That could be why they were sailors. They must love the salt. How else would they be able to stand to smell it so often?
The oddity of my thoughts caused me to clear them from my head. Why was I thinking about sailors anyway? What an odd topic…
Everyone had swum in front of me by now. Even Bella was looking over her shoulder at me. I picked up speed and rammed through the water, splashing everything in my path, which unluckily included Alice.
“Edward!” She yelled. I was already wet enough! Did you have to get me even wetter?
I cursed under my breath. She better not have any plans to get me back.
All of a sudden, I was splashed too. I looked forward to see my fiancé slashing through the water like a speeding bullet.
Ah, a challenge. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who saw it because I was behind yet again. I pumped my legs and arms to full capacity. I was neck and neck with Bella now, mostly because she was a newborn, trying my damndest to go faster. It just wasn’t working.
Give it up Alice thought she’s gonna win anyway.
I grumbled and sped even more. Somehow I came into contact with land, smashing right into Bella.
“I still win.” She smirked at me over her shoulder.
“For now.” I smirked back, a challenge in my eyes. I grabbed her around the waist and pulled her to me. I was almost to her lips when Alice and Jasper came up behind us.
“Keep moving lovebirds!” Alice shouted. I glared at the back of her head before sneaking a quick peck from Bella and pulling her with me to where the other couple was.
“Wh-“Bella was about to ask.
“Spain,” Alice answered before she could get the word out. “Looks like some secluded beach. We’ll need to stay hidden and out of the public if we don’t want them finding out again.”
I saw Alice’s face flicker before going blank, as was usual for her.
Someone who was obviously a vampire, though I did not know them, spoke to us. He told of what he had seen of us on the internet, how we may be becoming a world-wide phenomenon.
“They are looking for you,” the deep voice said. “They’ll find you. There is no chance.”
I tore myself from Alice’s mind, not wanting to hear the rest of what the strange man had to say. Was this really the end? Was there no way we could possibly continue to pull through? There had to be! We couldn’t run the rest of our lives! There has to be a way to stop them, there just has to. Surely someone’s done it before?
“Hello,” said the familiar deep voice from what could only be right behind me.
