We were running. I always seemed to be running, from one thing or another. All because of this wonderful girl right next to me. I don’t care how many times I’ll have to run from something to keep her safe, it’s all worth it. Who knew danger would still lurk around her as a vampire?
I felt my mind being pulled into one of Alice’s visions, so I pulled on Bella’s hand as Alice pulled on Jasper’s, to stop their running.
There they were. All of them. Running, talking, planning.
“Let me talk to Carlisle first before we attend to our matter of business,” Aro said to Marcus and Caius, as well as the rest of the guard. “I don’t want the entire visit to be gruesome.”
I saw Caius sigh and roll his eyes.
Then Demetri, the tracker, stopped in his tracks. He sniffed the air as if he wasn’t sure about the particular scent he was following. He turned to the rest of the Volturi and spoke in a leader-like fashion.
“The scent has changed. There are two paths going opposite ways. I think it would be a good choice to follow the other path. It is stronger, fresher.” The rest nodded and went right on their tracker’s heels as he turned and ran in an entirely different direction. Away from Forks.
“Damn it!” Alice and I said simultaneously. This was not going according to plan. They were supposed to be going to Forks, not towards us.
“What? What’s happening now?” Bella asked frantically.
I gritted my teeth before speaking through them while clenched. “They changed directions completely.”
I could see the horror in her eyes, desperately looking for a solution to our newest problem. She was constantly eliminating her own ideas as she spoke. “Well couldn’t we change directions? No- I guess not. How about- no, I almost got killed using that. I don’t know. What do you think we should do?”
“Um…..” I really didn’t know either. But Alice seemed to have an idea formulating in her head. I wanted to let her voice her idea so I stayed quiet for the time being.
“I say we keep running,” she said confidently. “They can’t chase us forever, and I’ll always have my visions to tell us if they’re close.”
Bella and I looked at each other in nodded. We knew that Alice would always have the right answer, no matter what. I for one have learned not to stray from it. “Where to?”
“Right now we are almost to the Colorado border, so maybe we should stop there first and get some disguises so the stupid media doesn’t recognize us from that picture. At least that’s what I see they’ll do if we don’t get them.”
We ran for what seemed like forever in a see of green and brown, trying to stay hidden in trees the entire time and not go anywhere near the light. We didn’t want a repeat of the incident.
We came across a few towns, but nothing small enough that we couldn’t possibly be recognized.
Then, when I thought there was no chance whatsoever of finding a town small enough, it seemed to pop out of the air. It reminded me a little of Forks. Or what it would be if it weren’t in the Northwest.
Alice slipped into a small clothing shop and brought out many items for us to disguise ourselves in. Hats, sunglasses, scarves, jackets, and many more.
We put what we could on and stuffed the rest into our already heavy backpacks. Of course it wasn’t a problem for the weight. I just didn’t want the fabric to bust from being too overloaded.
We stayed in the shadows as we moved back to where there was cover. I saw a small flash of light out of the corner of my eye. I was really starting to hate light. If it hadn’t been for light, we wouldn’t be in this mess. Cameras use light, the sun is a source of light, our skin glitters in light. It all really is a pain.
We got back into the shadows and kept running as fast and far as we could go.
Meanwhile, Alice had her phone open and was clicking away at the buttons. What could she be doing? My sister wasn’t one to text and no phone number was that long.
I narrowed my eyes on the screen. It looked like an internet page. It had all the latest news on it. Our original story was at the bottom of the list, still popular, but not breaking news.
Alice continued to check once an hour until she came across something. How did they get this? We were only there for ten minutes, and that town is so small…I should’ve seen this coming.
She clicked open the news article and read to herself before handing Bella the phone. I read the article along with her after looking at their newest photo of us.
The mysterious threesome first spotted in Las Vegas have been found again, along with a new little friend, this time in the small town of Bonanza, Colorado. Mister Bryan Barnett was the one who snapped the picture below on his cell phone while on his way to visit his mother who lives in the town.
Although the photograph does not show their amazing skin, it is still possible to see that they are indeed the exact ones we first saw in Sin City.
We were able to get an interview with Mr. Barnett upon his delivering the picture this afternoon.
“At first I wasn’t even sure it was them. Their skin wasn’t sparkly and they were moving so slowly, nothing like the picture I kept seeing on the news. Then I got a look at the brunette’s face and I was sure. I got out my phone and took the picture before they could get away.”
We continued to ask Mr. Barnett if he knew anything about the strange fourth man, to which he did not.
It looks like they are trying to lay low, but we will always bring you the latest reports, here on Yahoo News.
I saw Bella’s jaw drop when she read the part about him seeing her face.
“I didn’t think that would get us in any trouble!” she exclaimed. “I was just checking to make sure that we were completely in the shadows! Stupid news, why can’t they just leave us alone? It’s not like we’re that great, all we did was get in a picture.”
“Bella, love, you may think that way, but they don’t. They see us as a great new story to report on when they don’t want to report on the other bad things happening in the world. Don’t worry, it will go away.”
I pulled her to my chest and tried to comfort her. I really couldn’t blame her for being upset, she’d never been through anything near as bad as this, at least as a vampire, and neither had I. I’d always been one to follow the rules, except of course with Bella. I’d never even thought of going out into the sunlight in public that would be a suicide mission. I’d been depressed, but never enough to kill myself.
We ran as far as we could, leaving the once nice and now horrid little town of Bonanza behind.
