It had been a month since the Cullen's left Forks, I snapped out of my depression after Charlie threatened to send me back to Jacksonville to live with my hairbrained mother, Renee. I decided that it was time to move on with my life so what if Edward didn't love me, he told me of one coven of vampires in Italy named the Volturi, I knew that there were three Lords. Lord Aro, Lord Marcus and Lord Caius, they wrote the rules, the one was that no human should know about a vampire's exsistance. Edward and the Cullen's broke that rule, they showed me that they were vampires, I was even hunted by a vampire tracker named James.
Now I lay in bed listening to my dad, Charlie make breakfast in the kitchen. I got up and dressing quickly to go see him before he went to work. That was his family, sure he had me but he spent so much time at work that it was unhealthy.
"Morning Dad!" I said as I pranced into the kitchen. He looked up from the frying pan which held very dark bacon.
"Morning Bells, you're in a good mood." I walked over to him flipped the bacon and gave him a hug.
"Well why wouldn't I? Tomorrow I graduate, and I get to start my travelling idea that we talked about." Dad nodded
"You sure do Bells, anything to keep you happy and free from depression." I smiled meakly at him. He gave up on trying to cook the bacon so I took over and tried to revive the already blackened meat.
"I already asked Sue Clearwater if she would cook for you while I'm gone and she said that you could go over anytime you would like, since your such close friends with Harry." Dad nodded then I gave him his breakfast.
"Thanks Bella, I'm going to miss you." I choked on my glass of water, it almost sounded like he knew I wasn't ever coming back to Forks. That I would actually be in one way or another staying in Italy forevermore.
"You okay Bella?" Dad had lept up and was patting my back as I spat the water out into the sink. I nodded and wiped my mouth off on the back of my hand.
"Thanks dad, I'll miss you too." We just stood there looking a little awkward. I looked at the clock, "You better get going dad or you'll be on time." I said teasingly. He looked up at the clock and smiled,
"Only you Bella only you." He gave me a quick hug and went outside to his cop car.
It was Sunday afternoon I finished packing when I stepped on a floor board by my bed that squeeked. Dad had just done the flooring not long ago, I crouched and peeled the floor board up with my nails. Under the board was everything that reminded me of Edward and his family. I let the floor board snap back into place, it was a good place for all that stuff so I was going to leave it there hoping that when I was long gone and in Italy and Charlie had past away the house would either burn to the ground or the Cullen's would come back and Edward would check that, that stuff was still there. It would be but there would be one thing that wouldn't be there when he left. I would write letter to them hoping that they would actually find it.
I went to my desk pulled out a pen and a pad of paper, I wrote:
Dear Cullen Family;
It has been exactly one month since you left Forks. I was left here in a total state, but now I snapped out of that depression. Charlie and I have been talking more and I decied to travel the world, of course my trip only consists of one destination, Italy. I'm sure that will you miss me but by the time you will have read this I will be long gone. So much for a happy ending huh? Well it was nice knowing you;
With lots of Love
Isabella Marie Swan.
P.S. When you all left, my heart got shattered into many pieces. I'm not letting that slow me down, I'm moving on picking up the pieces as I go so I hope your happy.
I grabbed an envelope folded the letter and wrote: Cullen Family, on the front. I tucked it on top of everything else and stepped on the floor board making sure that it didn't stick up any. I went to my computer, checked my email I had one from my mom, I emailed her back then looked at the clock. Charlie would be getting home soon so I went down stairs and started to cook supper. I grabbed steaks, potatoes and vegetables, I was in the middle of peeling potatoes when Charlie came in.
"Hey Bells I'm home." He came to the kitchen, "What're you cooking?" I looked up and smiled at him.
"Sirlion steaks, potatoes, brocolie and cauliflower. I'll be making a salade too." Dad nodded took of his gun belt hung it up and washed up. He came back to the kitchen grabbed the lettuce, tomatoe, and dressing.
"This will probably be the only thing you'll let me do because it can't get burnt." I laughed and punched his shoulder playfully.
"Well that's because you don't cook salade, dad." He chuckled and we worked in silence. We didn't need words to talk, we just knew that when I was gone there was no turning back. Lots of people said I was very much like my dad. They were right, we didn't talk very much, it didn't bother us to be alone and we knew how the other one was feeling with out really asking. Dad also set table and I brought out the broiled steak, mashed potatoes and veggie mix.
"My little girl's all grown up." Charlie whispered as we sat down to eat.
"Dad I'll always be your little girl, nothing will change that." I said, he could hear the tears in my voice. The crystline tears betrayed me and slid down my cheeks.
"I'm sorry Bells I didn't mean to make you cry." I shook my head,
"No it's okay dad. I love you, and I'll miss you." We finished supper and Dad went to go shower embarressed that he actually broke down and started crying with me. I washed dishes and went to watch the game with dad. It was like a fairwell party just between the two of us and I actually really like it. I went to be that night and slept peacefully, there was no nightmares of the Cullens and for once I was glad that I didn't see Edward's face.
Dad actually stayed home from work saying that his little girl was graduating and he wasn't missing it for the world. That got me crying again and the make-up artist aka Angela had to cool me down before finishing my make-up.
"Bella really you have to stop crying!" She cried. I wiped my eyes and put in one headphone. "Good idea. No listening to sappy music!" I smiled and showed her the song, it was Body Body by Massari. She smiled and continued to finish.
Soon we were all standing tall and strong on the stage to recive our deploma, Jessica was in front of me and when she was called I wiped my hands on my gown I was so nervous.
"Isabella Marie Swan, please come forth and take you deploma." I walked forward and from the crowd I heard,
"That's my little girl WOOHOO!" Everyone laughed as I blushed. I blew a kiss out to the crowd since I couldn't see my dad due to the blinding lights. I recieved my deploma waited with the other graduates and threw my cap into the air whooping and halloring with the other.
"Bella you actually made it!" Mom came running over to me.
"MOM!" I hugged her, "Oh I haven't seen you in so long. How are you?" She smiled,
"Phil and I are awesome. Oh honey you look so gorgeous!" I laughed and we talked, dad came over and joined us. Something moved in the corner, I couldn't see because the lights were still too bright, at first I thought it was Edward, You idiot! It's not Edward or any of the other Cullen's they said they would never interfer with your life again, My mind screamed at me. I shook my head,
"What's wrong dear?" Mom asked I looked back and smiled.
"Nothing I thought I saw something that doesn't matter anymore." I whistfully walked with my mom and dad out the door of the hall. Phil joined us and together we went out for supper.
Mom and Phil left after supper saying that they had to get going. Dad and I on the other hand went out to the movies, we watched an action/comedy film then went home. I showered and realized that dad had fallen asleep on the couch again! I woke him and sent him to bed, I hopped into bed too and fell into a peaceful sleep.
In the morning I woke, grabbed my bags, and headed downstairs. I headed into the kitchen, I had to leave soon.
"Dad I was wondering will you do the honours of driving me to the air port in you cop car?" he smiled.
"Of course Bella." We had breakfast together, sometimes talking a little. Then it was time for me to go, dad drove me to the airport and I hugged him, squeezing hard so that he wold never forget me.
"Bye Bells." He whispered in my ear. I borded the plane and waited for it to take off.
"Please fasten you're seatbelts for we are about to take off." I buckled my seatbelt and popped in a piece of gum so that my ears wouldn't pop when we were at a high enough altitude.
"Ma'am can I get a drink?" I asked the stewardess. She went and got me a bottle of water, "Thank-you" She nodded and went to go tend to another person. I looked out the window to see beautiful green patches and blue water. I couldn't wait to get to Italy, where either I would be ended or accepted. I smiled and nodded off into a slight doze.
"Bella," Edward stood so still that for a moment I thought he was a statue. "I don't want you to do anything reckless, for Charlie's sake." I nodded tears sliding down my cheeks. I blinked and he was gone.
I woke immediately, no I wasn't heading down that road again. The reason for me going to Italy was that Edward lied to me, saying that he had loved me when in reality he never did. Well if the Volturi decided that I would make a formidable member it sure shock the Cullen's when I showed up with them. It was his choice to leave, it's only right that you choose what you want to do...or be my mind crooned softly. I smiled pulled out my Ipod Touch and listened to my music while the day faded into night. What I didn't see two rows back from my seat was the dark hooded figure watching me.
Hey sorry it took so long! XP
She stopped in front of her bedroom door, I looked at her, "Remember when I said that I liked this one guy and you said you had to meet him?" I nodded, "Well he's in here," She opened the door and sitting on her couch was.... I found myself looking right into the eyes of another red eyed vampire, but I couldn't concentrate that hard on him, he was so repulsing! I looked at Jane and she smiled at me brightly,
"Jane who is this?" The guy asked quietly, Jane skipped over to him freely not seeming repulsed at all!
"This is my big brother darling, Alec meet my boyfriend Fred, Fred meet my big brother Alec." Jane expected me to like this guy let alone give him a hand shake? Nu uh I wasn't okay with this. I didn't bother going any closer to him, "Alec don't be rude!" Jane hissed, a flash of pain rolled through my body and I winced,
"Nice to meet you, Fred," I said through gritted teeth, something flashed into his eyes,
"Oh, right I'm so used to having to use that sorry," the repulsion left me and I was instantly confused, but I went over and shook his hand, "Nice to meet you Alec, my name is Fred as Jane said, I'm sorry about the whole repulsing thing, I had to use that to stay alive before Jane found me. Everyone usually calls me Freaky Fred because I can repulse anyone I want." I took a deep breath,
"Oh that's why you didn't shake hands right away!" Jane said happily, I looked at Fred,
"If you do that to me again, you're going to regret it," Fred looked at me, "I don't like people who mess around with me, so if you try it again, I'll do this," I cut his senses completely and when I let them flood him again he collapsed to the floor.
"Whoa dude how did you do that?" Fred asked looking up at me,
"It's my talent, just like Jane can make you believe that you're in pain." Jane smiled at me sweetly but she didn't pull it on me. "Who created you?"
"I don't know her name but Riley said that we had to go after a family of golden eyed vampires, they have this girl that if we catch her we can have her," Anger rolled into my veins,
"What is this girl's name?" I growled,
"Isabella I think," Jane's eyes widened,
"Uh oh, Alec calm down, she's changing they can't hurt her," Fred looked at us, and Jane started to explain, "This girl you're talking about is actually here, in the castle but you can't kill her, she's Alec's wife, her name is Isabella Volturi, she's currently changing..." I ignored the rest and cleared my emotions before Jasper came down to see what was wrong, my new brother would do that if he had too.
After a moment or so I was completely calm and Fred was caught up, "Oh alright then Riley and her got really mad when they found out that two of the New Borns were gone." I looked at him,
"What's their names?"
"Uh the girl was Bree and the guy was Diego," We smiled, "Why what's up?"
"Well they're part of the guard now," Jane said, Fred's eyes went wide,
"Really?" We nodded, "Those two were the only ones I could tolerate, I knew Bree used to sit behind me so that the repulsion wouldn't make her sick and she'd protected, Diego well he's a good guy I could probably hold a conversation with him." We smiled,
"I'll be right back," I said, they nodded and I ran down to the feeding room, "Bree, Diego come with me I have someone you might want to see," Confused they followed me back to Jane's room.
"Who do you want us to meet?" Bree said, I walked in and stood on the side of the door, their eyes widened immensely, "Fred what are you doing here?" They all instantly picked up conversation and Jane came over to me,
"So what do you think?" I smiled slightly,
"Do you love him enough where you don't think you could live without him?" She nodded and I smiled a little brighter drawing her into my arms, "If he hurts you kick his butt here to kingdom come,"
"Does that mean you like him?" Jane asked excitedly,
"Yeah, I guess it does, as long your happy Jane then I'm cool with it," She hugged me tighter, "After all you're cool with Bella," She pulled back and smiled brightly at me her eyes shining happily. "I'm going back to the feeding room, if you need me call," She nodded and I left my little sister in the her room.
Tanya and I were happily married now, and every day it felt like I was floating on cloud nine. Carlisle and Esme were worried about Jasper and Alice and I was a little worried too after all they were my brother and sister, even though Alice blamed me for Bella's death and threw something at me almost every time that I went home. We would do random things go to the movies, spend lots of time together, go hunting, more or less we were all one big family again. Although I could tell that Esme and Carlisle wished that we would have stayed in Forks with Bella.
I had a feeling that something was going to happen I just didn't understand what it was yet.
Bella was finally changing, sure the future wasn't set in stone but this time my vision of her becoming a vampire was becoming true she was going to be immortal for eternity when she woke up again, she was my sister and I wasn't going to lose her again. Alec felt bad for biting her but it was something both of them wanted, they wanted to be together forever and that was going to happen. When the kids became a little older they were probably going to be changed as well because I knew that Alec and Bella wouldn't want their children to pass on. I couldn't wait for Bella to wake up again.
Jasper was coping well with the diet that the Volturi had, human blood, I on the other hand struggled a little bit, it came naturally but being a 'veggie vamp' for so long well it was hard but I'm getting used to it, thankfully Alec always cut my hearing that way I couldn't hear them screaming.
I missed Carlisle and Esme a lot but I chose to be with my sister Bella and I didn't regret that choice either because Jasper joined the guard as well, it helped to have Jasper by my side, to have him wrap his arms around tightly and tell me that it was alright to hunt humans in responsible ways. That he had worse before, and I had to agree with him whenever he said it was better tasting then animal blood. So in a way, I was already used to it.
Alec came walking into the feeding room his eyes were slowly fading to black again and we were all starting to get thirsty again we just hoped that Heidi would come back by the time Bella woke again that way we were all fed.
"So who did you have Bree and Diego meet?" Jasper asked as he came over to us,
"One of their old friends, he's alright as long as he keeps that repulsing thing to himself." We looked at him and he smiled, "I'll get him to show you later," We nodded and Jasper held me close to his side.
"So how does it feel to be a father?" I asked, Alec smiled brightly,
"Well it's not really hitting me yet I'm sure it will when Bella's changed and we're all holding the children," I beamed and nodded slightly, "Oh and by the way, the house in Ireland," I looked at him and he started laughing, "It's wonderful, the scenery is gorgeous, the isolation part perfect, Bella and I absolutely loved it there," I smiled,
"I knew you would!" He smiled and gave me a one armed hug, then hugged Jasper. "That's why Jane and I bought it," Alec started laughing,
"Yeah Bella thinks your nuts because of that, first the limo then the house, yeah she thinks your nuts but she loves you a lot anyway," I smiled brightly with Alec and we talked for a while longer before the kids woke up and wanted their Daddy.
UNIMAGINABLE PAIN... FLAMES BURNING... EATING ME ALIVE
