Rating 0/5   Word Count 1357   Review this Chapter

“Edward, please, come home!”

“No.”

“Please, Edward, you have to come home, you don’t understand what your doing to the family!” My father pleaded.

I had been a member of the Volturi for 3 weeks now. Of course Alice had seen what ‘path’ I was taking. She had told Carlisle, but he said to give me space, that I would come home in a few days, week at the most. He was wrong.

He thought I would change my mind soon, but I was certain about what I had done. Aro had been offering me a place at Volterra for absolutely ages, but I had always said no. Now though, there was nothing to stop me, no family, and no… Bella… I had always sworn that I wouldn’t be a part of what Aro had created, but when you are left with nothing, what else is there to do?

I have stuck to my diet like I said I would. As always I don’t want to be a murderer.

“Edward? Are you listening? I said Esme isn’t even trying to tidy the house! She just sits there, staring into space. Alice and Rosalie just sit with her doing the same. Your brothers aren’t even taking the opportunity to try and sneak a game of Call of Duty or Resident Evil.” Okay, so maybe things might be a little strange at my old house, but it’s not my problem!

“Carlisle, I can’t, just please, leave…”

“I can’t do that son. I promised the family that I would persuade you to come home.”

“Well, tell them I said no! This is what I chose Carlisle! You can’t stop me!” I argued, even though I knew he had already given up, he was just giving it one more shot.

“Please?” He reached out.

“I said no!” I yelled. Why couldn’t he just accept I didn’t want to be a member of his family any more?

“Fine, but if you ever want to come home… please, just come home… goodbye Edward…” He unwillingly turned and walked from my room at Volterra. Walking back to the Hall I smelt at least 20 humans. Knowing what that meant, I went back to my room and sat by my piano. As I do several times a day, I played the song I wrote for Bella, her lullaby. I played it a few times through before my fingers felt stiff to me, even though I knew that that was impossible. I laid on my huge sofa and listened to Debussy. I looked through the photo album I had made up of pictures of Bella. I studied each picture till the human smells were gone, before I made attempt 2 at going through to the hall. This time nothing stopped me. I went and stood by my place next to Aro and then took the generosity of reading through people’s minds. This was my job. To read people’s minds who are close enough.

Humph! I hope somebody comes soon… I want to be able to use my power to torture him or her… Jane thought. Jane’s power is a terrifying one. She could make you feel the burning feeling that you feel when being changed but it’s much more powerful and all over your body. I had felt it several times through the minds of people who feel the torture 1st hand.

At that moment, a small male walked through the large double doors. He was a mere 4 foot tall and extremely thin. He eyed each and everyone one of us before coming up to Aro.

“Aro…” He helloed.

“Hello, what bring you here young one?” He asked whilst he reached out his hand. I indicated to the male to take Aro’s hand, he did. I was able to see what Aro was seeing through his mind.

It was dark. Nobody was around. A young man was running through the forest calling out, “Mother! Are you here? Mother!”. He sighed and came to a standstill. Sitting down on a log he took a piece of paper out of his pocket. It was an address. “Why did she dump me here?” He mumbled to himself. He sat for hours, staring at the paper, barely moving, barely breathing. After what seemed like a whole day had passed, a woman came out from behind a bush.

I gasped and feel to my knees, burying my face in my hands, breaking Aro and the male from, their trance.

“Edward? What’s wrong? What happened?” Aro asked calmly.

“The woman… that was… was… V-Victoria…” I stuttered.

“Who is Victoria?”

“She was… she was… she was the mate of James, the immortal who tried to… well, you know the rest.”

“Oh! Well, this is going to be difficult… Edward, would you like to leave? Or tune me out of something?” It’s unusual for Aro to be this kind.

“No!” I said while rising to my feet. “I’m okay now…” Aro nodded at me then turned back to the male. He retook his hand.

It was dark. Nobody was around. A young man was running through the forest calling out, “Mother! Are you here? Mother!”. He sighed and came to a standstill. Sitting down on a log he took a piece of paper out of his pocket. It was an address. “Why did she dump me here and who‘s lives at this address?” He mumbled to himself. He sat for hours, staring at the paper, barely moving, barely breathing. After what seemed like a whole day had passed, a woman came out from behind a bush. She lunged at him, sinking her teeth into his neck.

My mouth filled with venom as I could imagine the taste… Then the pain began.

The woman pulled back, leaving him alive… just. He screamed with pain as the venom spread. He begged for the pain to stop, pleaded for his life to end… but it didn’t. The woman picked him up easily, flung him over her shoulder and started running at vampire speed through the forest. She dodged through all the trees and rocks, jumped over the several streams. After around 20 minutes she eventually came to a standstill outside a small cottage, it was only had one level, only a couple of rooms. She took him inside and laid him on a large bed in one of the five rooms. She placed a big puffy pillow under his head and pulled a thin silk quilt over him. After retrieving a small bowl filled with water and a cloth, wiped down the bite mark on his neck clearing away all the tried blood and venom. For three days she took care of him. For three days he writhed in pain. For three days he cursed her, screamed till he lost his voice, and until a certain point - cried his eyes dry.

And then it was over.

Aro released the man’s hand and took a step back. “So… What do you wish us to do?” He asked. Even though he knew already. He always liked to hear it from three different people, himself through thoughts, for the person to say It aloud and also for me to read his or her thoughts. “Edward…? Am I right?” He asked, I read his thoughts. He was thinking about what he had heard. I turned and looked at the man, he reminded me of myself… Nothing to live for… no reason for existence… alone…

I turned back to Aro and nodded my head, Aro nodded back then turned to the man. “So…?”

“I wish to be executed…” He said.

“Are you sure?” Aro asked, although he already knew the answer. The man closed his eyes and thought for a second before nodding his head. “Felix?”

Felix stepped forward, putting his arms around the man neck he twisted and the tearing noise of metal thundered in the room.

Thank you… The man had thought before Felix had ended his existence. His body was chucked into the fire and forgotten about in minutes. It would take some time to get used to this, but I know, given time, I will…
