Review this Chapter
I sat on the back of my wolf; his breathing in time with mine & his pack, my family & friends not breathing at all as they stared ahead.
I looked on too. The Volturi stood only fifty yards away from us, Caius was arguing with Aro, again. Even when we had Nahuel & Huilen who is clear evidence of how they could trust me Caius still kept looking for an excuse.
“Brother, they tried hiding this alienation from us. What if we never knew of this & it ended up ruining everything we have built for this world. They still could, why take chances?” Caius went on.
Aro didn’t look at his brother while he spoke. His eyes were on my mother. He went on staring. I didn’t know what he was searching for but this was my entire fault.
Everyone I love stood by me, ready to give their lives just to save me. Why would life be worth living if anyone of them were gone? – Carlisle, Esme, Rose, Emm, Alice, Jazz, Dad, Mum… Jake?
I made my decision right then & there. Dad must’ve been so intently listening to Aro’s mind that he couldn’t here mine. Bending down I kissed the fur on Jake’s head, he whined.
This was my only chance. The Volturi weren’t focusing on me; they were still concentrating on their stupid little counsel. If I left now no one would get hurt. The Volturi would follow me & leave my family alive. That’s all I wanted; for them to be safe. No one is ever going to die for me, not now, not ever.
I took one last look at everyone I loved & memorized everything about them in my mind. Slowly, I unclenched my hands from the fur on Jake’s back & jumped.
I ran & didn’t stop. I did not turn around to see who saw me go, I just ran.
I didn’t know how far I’d gone but I knew I was headed south. I remember passing a sign that said: To Portland but that’s it. It was raining; the sky was crying, just like me. My stomach rumbled. I was starving.
Sniffing the air around me I caught onto a bear. Don’t know what kind, didn’t really care. I just wanted to ease my burning throat.
I took the animal down easily; it was only young. I wanted more but the bear had nothing left. Either did I.
A creek flowed nearby & I dragged myself over there. My misery was too much; if they were following me they’d be here by now.
“Why do you cry, child?” A melodic voice chimed.
I looked up, blinking back my tears. In front of me from across the small creek sat a male vampire. He had long silky black hair. His skin was the whitest I’d ever seen on a vampire & his eyes were so red but he looked like he hadn’t fed in a couple of days – that didn’t seem to worry him though.
The man frowned as he looked at me as if he recognized me from somewhere. I was sure I’d never seen him before but I was positive he was very powerful.
“What is your name?” He asked.
“Renesme Carlie Cullen,” I whispered truthfully. “What is your name?”
“My name is Lorenzo but you can call me Renzo, if you’d like,” he smiled.
We sat in silence for a while, not speaking, just listening to what was around us.
He inhaled hesitantly. “I heard of your family, I am sorry for such a loss so great.”
“What loss?” I asked; my voice drenched in worry.
“The Volturi ending them,” he replied as if it was somehow obvious.
The shock vibrated through me so painfully that I fell to the ground. That was why they hadn’t come to kill me. They’d have known that by ending them it would also end me anyway. I shouldn’t of ran, I should’ve stayed with them to the end. I was foolish & an abomination.
The vampire was next to me in an instant.
“It’s ok child, our kind does not die often but when the Volturi decide, no one can stop them.” He whispered.
I screamed, trying to drown out the truth in his words. It didn’t work but I kept on screaming, tears sliding down my cheeks.
“I can make it all go away Renesme,” Renzo said.
“Are you going to kill me?” I questioned. A part of me wanted him to.
“No, but I can make you forget. I can make you forget everything & live on with your life happily without all this sorrow & dread. Would you like that young one?” His voice sounded so tempting, so alluring.
“Is that your gift?”
“Yes it is, Renesme.”
“I want to forget. I don’t want to remember anymore.” I said; looking into Renzo’s deep red eyes.
He nodded in understanding. “Stay still child & just let your mind drift, this will all be over soon.”
The palms of his hands rested on the sides of my face. “Now, close your eyes.”
I felt it then. It was a horrible pain. It hurt, bad. Renzo didn’t say there would be pain involved. I held onto my memories, not sure whether I still wanted to let them go. But when I remembered the reason why I should, I let go of them. To remember my family, my life before; it would just be too horrible to go through. They could be dead now; all of them, to have to go through that for the rest of my life are something I don't want. I don't think anyone would want it.
I hear screaming, wailing. Then I realize it's only me. All this pain, I asked for it. This was the bargain I had made with Renzo. It was like my mind was being burned from the inside out, buried deep down to somewhere even I couldn't get to.
So I closed my eyes & let my memories be hidden away in a forbidden draw at the back of my head forever…
