Bella’s POV

The airplane’s wheels skidded along the runway before finally taking off into the early morning sky. I peered through the window of the man sitting in front of me since our window had had to be closed for obvious reasons. Considering why I was here, I was surprised that my captors had not found a way to make every person in the entire plane shut the windows.

I looked out this lone window in a silent farewell to my real home, but my farewell was short-lived because as soon we were above the thick cloudbank that covers just about the entire state of Washington. I was surrounded by a sea of white, a few mountains peeking through at points, as the roar of the engines screamed deafeningly in my ears.

The time seemed to drag on endlessly as we flew. After a while, that sea of white, fluffy clouds turned into a beautiful patchwork quilt of the many shades of green and brown, speckled with different tints of red and a lovely, clear light blue. Rooftops adorned the edges of the pretty countryside, sided by long, one land roads leading out to what I assumed would be a city.

The clouds had disappeared and reappeared many times by the time we touched down in New York City. I wished that I would’ve been able to jump out of the stuffy plane and just lie down on one of them and take a nice long nap. And then, just maybe, I would’ve been able to believe that this is all a dream.

I had never been to the city, but this would not be the day to explore such a curious place. With its diverse culture, who knows what I could have discovered within its confines. Sure, I would’ve loved to run from this wretched cage and out into the open, free at last, if I didn’t know that I wouldn’t even make it out of my seat before one of them caught me.

My wrists felt heavy, though there was nothing on them. I was a prisoner, chained eternally to these evil beings, expected to work for them without complaint. Thos chains would be unbreakable. Even with the honor most seem to receive from becoming one of the guard, I felt none, only hatred towards my new “masters” as they would like me to put it. I was not at all happy about that.

I lifted my head up to look at the open plane door, new people now filing in to fill the number of empty seats. I saw my “body guards” eye me out of the corners of their eyes as I watched the proceeding of people stowing away their luggage and sitting into the confined seats of the aircraft.

The captain repeated his safety speech once again as the flight attendants demonstrated at the front. Since I had no chance of dying in this plane except in the chance of an explosion, in which no one here would benefit from the safety instructions, I chose to ignore them. I sighed and looked to the window yet again as the plane sped off the runway and up into the air once again.

I felt Edward’s hand rubbing my shoulder, trying to calm me. It helped a little, but nothing could completely deny me that caged feeling running through my frozen veins right now. The only thin I would think of worse than our predicament would be for Edward to leave me all over again. I did not worry about that though, because sitting right next to my fiancé and soon to be sister-in-law was one who could kill me at a moment’s notice. The deep scowl on his face only confirmed the thought.

The scene outside the window had now become a light, calming blue. It could’ve been multiple violent and thrashing tsunamis and it wouldn’t have mattered to me, for now I was staring into my love’s scorching golden eyes. I could do this; I could do anything, as long as he was right by my side.
