Aro’s POV

Our guard filed into the room quietly, their eyes now crimson instead of the deep black they were when they left. That must mean that there were some humans in the turret for the rest of us to have. I was incredibly thirsty after all. They had been gone for so long, this time going all the way to the United States of America to gather our food. I stood up from my chair, ready to have my meal when I noticed a picture in one of their hands.

I could’ve easily seen it from across the room, but I decided I needed a closer look. Who knew what could lie in that simple photograph. If they even bothered to bring it with them it must need closer inspection anyway.

“What have you got there?” I asked.

The young man walked up to me and held up his finding. I gasped at the sight. How dare they endanger our secret like this! Going out in sunlight! They should’ve known better! The picture was taken in Las Vegas! It’s always sunny there!

I noticed one other thing about the photo that intrigued me. They had golden eyes. Not those that could be produced through contacts over any of the colors in the usual spectrum for our eyes. They reminded me of my friend Carlisle’s. Did he have more of us following him now? He was a good friend, but I never did understand his reasoning for the way he fed.

Marcus and Caius came up behind me to see what all the fuss was about and gasped as well at what they saw. Caius tried to snatch the photo the photo out of the man’s hands but I had all ready grabbed it, and was now holding it away from him.

“Caius, be patient. We must decide how to deal with this first,” I said.

It did not take my mind-reading gift to know how he would react. “How to deal with this?!” he yelled. “This is the worst thing that could happen! This will spread if we do not take care of it immediately!”

I knew how he would respond before I even asked, but I proceeded anyway, hoping he may have come up with something different for this particular situation. “And how do you suggest we deal with this?”

“Destroy these three of course. And then find some way to stop the media from spreading this any farther, and destroy all information that this ever happened.”

Ah, Caius; always wants to take the easy way out. He never sees the error of his ways. So, of course, I was left to explain them to him.

“Yes, but what way would that be? Kill all of them? Don’t you think that would bring unneeded attention to the subject? We will have to find some other way to deal with the humans. On the other hand, I do agree with you about these three. They must be destroyed at once.”

I caught a glimpse of Demetri bursting into a smug smile. Of course he would be like that, after so many years he was actually going to use his power for something useful; something challenging.

I turned to Demetri. “You will get your chance. As for now, we do not have anything to track these rule-breakers with. We will have to start at the origin. I assume these were taken in Las Vegas?”

The members of the guard who has just returned nodded their heads. I shuddered internally at the thought of having to go back to that place. The last time had been a few decades ago and had not given me a pleasant first impression. Such a stench for one small city. I don’t think I had ever smelled that much alcohol at once. And of course there were all the silly clothes. Not to mention the terrible recreations of some great landmarks. Las Vegas was definitely not a pleasant place to visit.

I sighed and stood up. At least I would get a good meal before the torture.

The rest of the people in the room followed after me as I headed toward the gathering of humans waiting for us.

There was a good selection of them there. I got my fill as the others drank quickly and left to prepare to leave. Marcus and Caius were the only ones remaining. The looks of disgust on their faces showed that I was not the only one who was not happy with where we were headed.

I reached out and touched their hands in order to see if they intended to accompany me on our little trip. I instantly felt the flood of new thoughts enter my head. Marcus’s mood seemed to be the worst, which was very surprising considering Caius’s anger at the moment. He didn’t like Las Vegas anymore than I did. He had a pretty bad situation. He had to see all those couples who didn’t even love each other get married, while he was left without his precious Didyme. I felt a small pang of guilt for what I had done to my sister, but it quickly subsided.

We were soon ready to leave. We ran to the airport in Florence, another thing I disliked. Was it impossible for them to make a quieter craft?

After many annoying hours of humans fidgeting, clicking on laptops and telephones, and doing what they thought was whispering, the airplane landed.

We stepped out into the night, opting to run in the back alleys where the drunks wouldn’t remember what they saw in the morning, versus taking one of the hotel shuttles.

We ran past many buildings, all which were lighted inside despite the time of night.

“Caius, hand me that photograph.” I reached my hand back to grab it as I ran. Caius had finally gotten a hold of it after we left and he hadn’t stopped scowling at it the whole way here.

I held it in front of me while we ran, trying to figure out which building we were looking for. Finally, I found that it was a wedding chapel as Demetri called out for us to stop.

We halted right in front of what could only be the wedding chapel from the photograph. Demetri went over and smelled the air, closing his eyes as he did so. Of course I wasn’t a good tracker, but I sniffed the air as well. It smelled of alcohol, tobacco, and three vampires who all seemed to smell somewhat familiar. That’s when I figured it out. Carlisle. They were his creations. That must mean that if we follow this smell, I will be able to see my dear friend and carry out this business. I was overjoyed. I hadn’t seen him in centuries and though his way of life was strange to me, I did count him in the people I actually cared for.

“Let’s get out of this city!” I shouted. “Demetri, follow that scent! We’re going to see Carlisle!” he took up my right flank as we ran away from the disgusting city.
