Master of Ceremonies

Please read A B.A. in B.S. prior to reading this one...it will help you quite a bit. This is the second part of a three part series. Edward and Bella have grown quite a bit since he left...to the point they got back together AFTER Edward earned Bella back and then proposed. And he did all this after they talked to Charlie! So, here comes the bride, the groom, all the wedding fanfare, and many suprises inbetween. Oh...and lots of lemony goodness too. Again, some OCC, but you'll likey. Please bear with the first 10-11 chapters as they are a buildup to a kickass twist in chapter 12! Update 8/12/11 I've just added 3 new chapters and I hope you enjoy them. There's a bunch of fun stuff starting and on it's way!!I've also added some references from one of my fav UK shows into one of the chapters. I hope I described them well enough so you know which episodes I refer to. I am loving the reviews I am getting...but I do wish there were MORE! C'mon peoples-give me a few clicks of the mouse, a few keystrokes, and maybe about twenty seconds of your time...you know you want to!

I was on my knees with tears coming out of my eyes, but I had ABSOLUTELY no idea why. I knew something strong brought me to my knees of my own accord, but that did not account for the inexplicable tears. JASPER! It had to be from Jasper. While pushed on with my internal interrogatory, I watched for a movement from Edward and Alice. Her visions didn’t last long and this was extending past her normal response deadline-or at least it felt like it.

“Um, what’s going on,” I managed to whisper questioningly.

Esme was standing next to me instantly and held her hand out to help me up. “Alice got a very disturbing vision and we are trying to find a way to change it. That’s why we had you choose to be changed-we had to see what the outcome would be.”

“And it’s even worse than we imagined,” interjected Alice and she slumped to the floor at Jasper’s feet as he stood next to the couch.

“Her choosing the change sooner did nothing except get us all killed,” growled Edward.

My eyes grew wide and I froze. I…I got them killed? Changing caused their death??

“And we’re back to the original vision,” huffed Alice.

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to choose not to be changed until after the wedding. I just didn’t want to be responsible for—“

“Of course you didn’t, dear,” cooed Esme trying to calm me. “You reacted as any of us would-in the best interests of your family. Here,” she said pointing to a spot on the couch, “sit down. We need to tell you what’s going on.”

Instantly Edward was sitting next to me intertwining one hand with mine, wrapping the other around my waist, and kissing my forehead. As my body loosened from its still semi-rigid state, I listened intently.

Alice had a vision of the Volturi coming for me. Aro had just made the choice and there had been no way to foresee it. The original vision, the one where I choose to wait until after the wedding, resulted in the Volturi coming after me. My family fights for me and two lose their lives; they would not tell me who. They rest are either incapacitated by Alec or tortured through Jane’s painful talent. I’m taken away by some guy named Demitri, who could apparently give Emmett a run for his money. The final image is of me being bitten, drained and the blood and color leaving my body.

The second vision, the one where I choose to change now, results in the deaths of all my family-including Charlie and Renee. That was unacceptable. For the next few hours we tried countless variations: who would change me, who was there, going to see the Volturi, who would see them, how many would see them, what they would say, who said it, how they said it, I even tried to change what they were wearing much to Alice’s amusement; a small amount of humor in a compounding migraine and fear inducing situation.

While some of the details changed-like who died (some names were changed for their protection…from me the human), the result was still the same: I was taken from my family, my future, my life by the Volturi-the final image remained the same: I was going to die by their hand.

In my head I said a sentence, briefly made a decision that changed everything. I regretted it the moment I thought it.
