Jasper’s POV

“I assume you know about this?” Aro held up a newspaper with another article about our being in Bonanza in it.

I gulped. What is there to say about that? Did he really expect me to give up my wife and family’s location so easily? But he was waiting for an answer, and I had nothing to say. He beat me to the point.

“Considering the look on your face, I’ll take that as a conformation. Now, onto other business. Who are you and why are you with these criminals?”

I could say that I know them, but then they would probably kill me after making sure they had all the information possible. On the other hand, I could say I don’t know them, bit how could I explain the photo in that newspaper?

I settled on the latter for my sake and Alice’s. “I don’t know them.”

“They why were you with them?”

I could feel his smugness. He thought he had me cornered. Well, you’re not winning this time Aro.

“I was curious. I’d seen them before, so I followed them.”

He seemed taken aback, all of his previous feelings completely washed away. I could see him scrambling around trying to come up with an answer to that. Caius said it for him.

“You’ll still have to stay with us, until you can prove your story. You’re lucky we haven’t killed you for association.” He turned to Aro then. “I don’t trust his story. No logical being would follow these criminals.”

I held back my growl at his words about my family. Criminals! What a hypocrite! If anyone around here were criminals it was them!

“Maybe you’re right, Caius. Shall we test his story?” he turned his glare to me and reached for my hand. I slipped away from his grasp. We ended up playing a game of sorts, me trying to avoid any contact whatsoever. It was no use. I accidentally brushed across his finger, his eyes flashed and his glare turned into an arrogant grin.

“You are lying. I do not appreciate that. You should be ashamed. Don’t know them do you? Are you oblivious to your wife?” The rest of the room’s eyes narrowed at me, some deathly while others seemed to only be angry.

“Master?” the little brunette girl I knew to be Jane spoke out.

“Not right now, Jane. He will be punished later; right now there is business at hand,” Aro replied and looked at me. “You have a gift. Emotions. You can feel them. Would you care to join us?”

I shook me head. No way was I joining the Volturi. I didn’t want to be a mindless human-bloodsucking monster again. I left that behind with Maria.

“I guess we’ll just have to kill you for being an accomplice then. Felix! Jane!”

“No, no no!” I yelled.

“Have you reconsidered?”

“Isn’t there any other way?”

“I feel I’m being quite generous. I could’ve killed you when you walked through the door. This is my only offer.”

If I could’ve cried, I would’ve. I had to do this, for Alice. I would be no use to her dead, and if there was any way for me to help them this way then I’d do it.
