10 years after Breaking Dawn
"Ness, wake up."
I groaned and rolled over towards the sound of the voice. I cracked an eye open and saw My Jacob sitting on the edge of my bed, smiling like it was Christmas. "Hey Jake." I mumbled rubbing my eyes and sitting up.
"What?" I replied opening my eyes and looking into his.
Wow... Christmas already... No wonder he was smiling so much... I smiled and kissed him softly on the cheek. "What time is it?" I asked.
"Now don't get mad... It's 6."
"In the morning!?" I said loudly, flopping back on my pillows.
He laughed. "Come on Nessie, it's Christmas. You're supposed to get up early on Christmas morning... It's a tradition. Now get up before I drag you out of here. You have presents to open." He said with a smile.
I groaned again and rolled back over to go back to sleep. He wouldn't actually drag me out of here.
"If that's how you want it..." He murmured.
Next thing I know he has me over his shoulder, walking out of my room. "Jake, put me down, I wanna go back to sleep." I begged, knowing he couldn't resist my innocence.
"No, no, no. You can't talk me out of this. I don't care how tired you are. Besides, your parents wanted you up too. They just aren't as cool as me." He replied walking into my parents' cottage living room, and tossing me on the couch. My parents were sitting around our tree, grinning ear to ear. "It's too early, couldn't you wait till at least 8?"
"Sorry Nessie, we have a full schedule for the day." My dad said smiling and opening his arms for a hug.
I crawled off the couch and gave my dad, my mom, then Jacob, a hug. "Okay, what did I get?" I asked sitting down and grabbing a present.
I got an awful lot of Cd's from my dad, books from my mom, and a beautiful necklace with a wolf on it from my Jacob.
We left the cottage after I had opened my presents and headed to my Grandpa Carlisle and Grandma Esme's house. We got there and my whole vampire family was there surrounding the tree, even the wolves, and Grandpa Charlie were there.
I was still treated as if I was only ten but in reality I was more of about 17. I had stopped aging this past year, and was now a full grown half vampire- half human.
"Hey Nessie, give your old grandpa a hug." Grandpa Charlie called from his position on the couch. Sue was sitting beside him, they had married last year and were now living in Forks together.
I skipped over to him and gave him a hug, then going around the room and giving the rest of my family and friends hugs. "Please tell me I'm not the only one who got presents."I said sitting beside Jacob, who was in front of the tree and a TON of presents.
"Nope, I made sure you didn't this year." Uncle Emmet said from across the room.
"Good. Okay, dad you're first." I said smiling and tossing him a present that had his name on it.
It took all morning for everyone to get their presents opened and put away. As expected Aunt Alice gave me a car full of clothes, Everyone gave me a blue Ferrari f430 imported from Italy (fpers.blogspot.com/2008/04/dream-car.html), and various other items from the rest of my family.
"Nessie, come on, lets go for a walk." Jacob whispered in my ear.
"Okay." I replied smiling and getting up. 'Just going for a walk dad.' My dad was glaring at Jacob and I.
I walked out the front door with Jacob, everyone else in the house was oblivious to my leaving... they were all caught up in their 'shiny new toys'...
Once we got past earshot of my dad and them, Jacob started talking. "Hey Nessie, I have been meaning to tell you something, but I'm not sure how you'll take it, so just be open minded..." He said nervously. "Do you remember how I have told you all those stories about imprinting. You know, the ones with Sam and Emily, Jared and Kim, Quil and Claire, Paul and my sister..."
"Of course I do. I love those stories." I replied tossing a rock into the creek. What was he getting at? Had he imprinted? And if so, on who?
"Well... I imprinted a while back ago to this incredibly gorgeous girl..."
Hmmm.... hopefully he is talking about me, because it would really suck if not... considering I was already in love with him... I mean, who wouldn't be? He's perfect for me! "Keep going... who is she?" I asked nervously.
Please be me, please be me. I chanted in my head. His smile got bigger if that was even possible... "She's you." he said softly. YES!
I ran and jumped in his arms. "Yay!" I squealed in his ear as he twirled me in circles.
"I told your dad you would be happy."
"This is the BEST Christmas Ever!" I said kissing him on the lips for the first time.
Hope y'all like it. Please comment and tell me to write more...Thanks!
Jacob and I walked slowly back to the house, enjoying our time together... alone.
"I've always known you imprinted on me... I just didn't say anything." I said with a laugh.
"Sure Sure." He replied smiling and kissing me again. He was doing that a lot, but I didn't care. I loved My Jacob, but he didn't know it... yet.
We were walking hand in hand as we walked into the yard of my Grandparent's house. "Nessie, come here! I need you for a couple of minutes." Alice called from the garage.
I quickly gave Jacob a kiss and ran to the garage. Aunt Alice and Aunt Rose were here, waiting on me. "Nessie, guess what?" Alice asked excited.
"What?" She was hiding something behind her back...
She was bouncing up and down excitedly. "Just tell her Alice." Aunt Rosalie said kind of bored.
"Okay, Okay. We all are going on vacation to travel the world." She said pulling out a packet that had a bunch of different locations on it.
"Really!?" I screeched excitedly, grabbing the packet.
"Yes!" she squealed in return.
"Is everyone going? Can My Jacob come?"
"Of course Nessie, I don't think Jacob would let you go without him anyways... Is this an awesome Christmas present or what!?"
"The best." I replied smiling and thinking about imprinting and Jacob... "So when are we leaving?"
"Today." Rosalie replied.
"Since when did you guys have an RV?" Jacob quizzed, looking at the HUGE RV that was parked out front. My dad, Edward, had driven up on it after I went into the garage.
"Since today." My mom, Bella, said.
"What do vampires need an RV for?"
"We are going on vacation to travel the world." I said happily. "And you can come."
He raised an eyebrow. "Wow... you vamps have a knack for surprises..." he mumbled. "So when are we leaving?"
"Today." Grandpa Carlisle said coming out of the RV. "Don't worry. Billy got you packed and all your stuff is already in here."
"Where are Grandpa Charlie, Sue, and all the wolves?" I asked looking around.
"They went home. They knew about the trip so they got out of the way... well... all except Seth. He begged to go and Esme said it would be fine." My mom explained.
"Hey guys. I'm packed and ready to go." Seth said coming out of the trees with a big bag of stuff.
"Okay. Come on lets get going." I said hopping into the RV.
"Here we go..."
"This RV is pointless." Jacob said stretching out on the couch inside the HUGE RV. I was sitting on top of his stomach.
I shrugged. "Not really. If they didn't buy this, we would be running the whole time like the rest of my family, and they needed a place to put clothes... You know how Alice is... Plus we get to talk and do stuff together." I said smiling. "I wonder where we are going first..."
"Well... Alice said we were going to some Mexican city. Oh yea, we aren't going to be in here the whole time. We have to fly a few times... you know to get across seas..."
"Okay!" I said happily. Aunt Alice was up front driving, listening to some loud music, and Seth was playing some video game in the main room. Everyone else was running.
I started messing with Jacob's hair, making it stand up and making it messy. "Are you having fun?" he asked laughing.
"Yep!" I leaned down and kissed his nose. I stretched out putting my cheek against his chest, my legs were dangling off the side. He wrapped an arm around me. "This is going to be a fun trip."
"If it has you in it, any trip would."
I smiled and kissed him, loving every second of it.
Alice drove all day, only stopping to gas up the RV, or let someone in that didn't want to run... like Aunt Rose. She complained about the smell, but stayed in anyways, mostly up front jamming to music with Aunt Alice.
We had stopped through New Mexico the longest. My mom had stopped to see her old house for a bit, but was right back on the road with us.
We were now going into Mexico, which was a very pretty desert area, at the time.
Jacob, Seth, and I had spent the day doing various things. From playing games to snacking on stuff in the fridge, which I didn't like too much, but I made due. It never got boring, as long as Jacob was with me.
"Awe man! I lost again!" Seth complained as we played Call of Duty 4 on the X-box 360.
I laughed. "Sorry Seth, I have pure skill."
"You cheat." He complained
"Do not! Besides, you have no proof." I said with a grin. "We could always play Monopoly." I suggested.
"NO!" They both said together loudly. Earlier we had played monopoly and I had owned ALL the places. I won by a mile on that, plus it took forever...
"Rematch." Seth said glaring at me.
"Okay... if you want..." I said setting up the match.
After like 15 minutes I had schooled Seth and Jacob using the the M4 Carbine. "I give! You're officially better than me." Seth said tossing the controller down and walking out of the room.
"Bring me a soda!" Jacob called as Seth opened the fridge.
In about a minute, a Dr Pepper came flying through the door, Jacob caught it at ease. "How do you drink that? It's got too much sugar." I said making a face.
"Very carefully." He replied smiling and taking another drink.
I rolled my eyes and yawned. "I think I'm going to go to sleep." I said crawling into the bed.
Jacob downed his soda and walked along the side of the bed to 'tuck me in'. "Goodnight Nessie." He said kissing me and turning out the light.
I drifted off into a deep slumber.
Two days later we were pulling up to a deserted beach. "Where exactly are we?" I asked Alice.
"A beach near Cancun, Mexico."
"Wow..." it was stunning. Crystal blue waters, white sand, and best of all, the sun...
I changed into my swimsuit and left the RV. Everyone else was already out here, changed and ready to swim. My vampire family very sparkling brighter than the sun... It was awesome! I had a little glow to my skin but that was about it. Jacob and Seth were TAN, especially standing next to a bunch of vampires with white translucent skin.
"I'll race you to the water Jake. No phasing." I said excitedly.
"Okay. You're on!" We lined up at the edge of the RV.
"On your mark," Alice said holding up a towel, "get set, GO!" I took off running as fast as I could. I had a little more of an advantage than Jacob considering I didn't have to phase like him. My foot hit the water and I jumped.
I flew a few feet in the air and did a dive into the water. It was slightly cold, but mainly warm, which was weird since it was the end of December... but I guess since it's near the equator... Fish were everywhere! Red fish, green fish, blue fish, all fish. Jacob hit the water immediately after I did and was a little behind me.
I came up for air and saw him swimming my way. His short black hair was glistening with water. My parents were in the water a few feet away, splashing playfully. Uncle Emmett was carrying Aunt Rose into the water, she was fighting with him, but not hurting him. Aunt Alice was on Uncle Jasper's back in the water, going under to look at fish. Grandpa Carlisle and Grandma Esme were standing on the dock looking into the water. Seth was swimming lazily on his back.
Jacob swam up to me, grabbed me and pulled me under the water playfully.
I came back up and made a fish face with crossed eyes. He came up, saw me, and started laughing hysterically. I pushed him under the water and used his shoulders as a diving board. Pushing off from his shoulders I jumped into the air, diving into the water near my parents. I swam to my mom and got on her back, spitting water into her ear. She laughed and pulled me off her back. "So are you having fun Nessie?"
"This is the best vacation ever!"
"So where are we going next mom?" I asked as Jacob, Seth, Alice, my mom, and I filed into the RV.
"Well actually... We are headed to the amazon..." She replied unsure.
I thought about that for a moment. I gasped. "Are we going to see Zafrina!?"
"Yep!" Aunt Alice said as she went to drive.
"Great... More vampires..." Jacob mumbled.
"Awesome!" I said excitedly.
A little over a week later we had entered South America. We had stopped at the Mayan ruins in Belize and stopped in Panama to check out the town and buy some stuff. The Mayans ruins were really overgrown and had lots of tourists, so we parked the RV for a while and ran to areas less seen and traveled to. We also got to hunt a few jaguars and some leopards while we were there. Those were hard to catch for me, but my mom or dad or even Jacob would help me take them down. I think Uncle Emmett fought a big group of them for fun... Needless to say, he won.
"Hey mom," Jacob was fast asleep in the main bedroom, my mom was on the couch reading a book. "Do you think Nahuel and Huilen are going to be around Zafrina and them?"
"Well... I guess so. Why?" She answered putting her book down.
"Oh no reason. I was just wondering..." I curled up on the other side of the couch and closed my eyes. Hmmm... I wanted to see Nahuel and ask him a few questions about his sisters... I've been wondering also what happened to his father and sisters... Whether or not they had any special abilities like me... or if the Volturi had 'dealt' with his father... I was just wondering about little insignificant things that no one would understand... I was different and I couldn't wait to talk to someone who was like me...
We were now coming up to the Amazon Basin, where the Amazon Coven was supposed to be. Alice parked the RV in the less dense part of the forest and we all got out. Alice had made sure to pack bags for Jacob and Seth, they were going to want regular food at least for some of the time. Plus it had extra clothes for me in them too.
Jake and Seth ran into a more dense area to phase and came back a minute later in their wolf form. I smiled and Hoped on Jake's back. I wouldn't be able to keep up running so Jacob of course volunteered to carry me.
"Okay, we are going to go through the forest and take in some sights, then we are going to try to find our amazon friends." Grandpa Carlisle said showing us on the map.
"Look! A howler monkey!"
"Look! A ocelot! Awe! I want one mom. It's so cute!" I kept calling out different animals that I knew. The ocelot was so cute! It was like a house cat but bigger and I even saw one swimming!
"Renesmee, you would probably eat it after a while. Besides I don't think it would like to leave its habitat." my mom said smiling at me. She was running close to Jacob, Seth, and I. Jacob barked in approval of what my mom said, sending animals running.
"Would not." I mumbled.
We were now running along the Amazon river. I saw pink river dolphins jumping and I even saw a group of piranhas eating something dead. I think the alligators smelled my family because they swam away really fast or snapped at us.
We fed as we ran. A few capybara every now and then, some Jaguars which were now my new favorite, and I think Uncle Em and Uncle Jazz even tried to eat an anaconda...
"Hey, I smell something." Grandma Esme said from up ahead.
"It's them!" my dad yelled.
We stopped and I hopped off of Jacob's back.
A few minutes later, I heard them. "Carlisle?"
"Yes Zafrina, it's us." My grandpa called back.
The 3 amazon women ran through the trees. Zafrina was smiling widely. "Carlisle, what brings you to our land?" She asked hugging him.
"We are on vacation."
"Ah. I see"
I was bouncing up and down excitedly. Zafrina, Senna, and Kachiri walked around giving hugs and talking.
I smiled as she came up to me. "Hello Nessie!" She said giving me a hug and showing me a picture of some other place in the amazon that had a waterfall.
"How have you been? You've grown quite well."
"I've been great! I'm so glad we are here. I've missed all my vampire friends."
"Well, I've missed you as well."
We continued to talk and play in the trees. The Amazon vampires didn't mind the two werewolves that were with us. It was fun to be out Washington and in a new place that I've only dreamed of.
After a long day, Jacob, Seth, and I slept on the soft Amazon floor.
This was only the beginning...
"Awe Mom, do we really have to go?"
"Yes Renesmee. We still have more places to go. Zafrina, Senna, Kachiri, it was a pleasure spending time with you all here. I hope you can come visit sometime in the future."
"Of course. I would love to spend more time with young Nessie. Thank you for coming to our homeland."
I pouted as they finished exchanging goodbyes and I'll see you laters.
"Come on Ness. You know we couldn't stay forever. Besides, I hear the next place is going to be awesome." Jacob said putting his arm around my shoulders and walking.
"Yea, yea, yea. Go phase."
He smiled and took off with Seth to phase. I was actually kind of glad to be leaving... Although I didn't get to see Nahuel or Huilen...
Jacob trotted back up to me and barked. I laughed. His tongue was hanging out of his mouth. I hopped up on his back and we all started heading back to the RV.
We were about half way back to our RV when Aunt Alice stopped. "What is it Alice?" Uncle Jasper asked. Her face was blank. She was having a vision.
She looked up after a minute, smiled, then looked at me. "Well Nessie, we might not be leaving yet..."
Sorry it's so short. Not much time to write... Please comment! Thanks for all the support!
"Really!?" I screeched.
"Yep. We have a few more friends coming our way. I know... my vision just disappeared." Alice said rubbing her temples and sitting on a root.
"So that means,"
"Yes. Nahuel and Huilen."
Yay! I would finally get to talk to him. I put my palm on Jacob's furry cheek. 'Don't worry Jacob. I only want to see Nahuel so I can talk to him about his dad and sisters.'
I climbed off his back and so he and Seth could phase. I closed my eyes, sniffed the air, and smelled a jaguar up the tree. I opened my eyes, looked up and saw the cat. I crouched down and sprang in the air, grabbing the cat by the neck and pulling it to the ground. We landed and I situated myself to where I was on the back of the cat. Then I bit down in its neck and snapped it all in one motion. I liked these carnivores better than the ones back home. I finished draining the cat and stood back up.
"Well I have to say, you have got good Ness." Jacob said leaning against a tree.
"Not a scratch on you." Uncle Jasper mumbled in agreement.
"No blood." Uncle Emmett said in agreement.
"So, when are they going to get here?" I asked.
"They don't know they are going to run into us, but in about 5 minutes." Aunt Alice replied.
"Are you sure you even remember them?" My dad asked smiling. Of course he knew I did. He could read my mind!
I rolled my eyes and sat on a large root. "Of course I do dad."
He smiled. Then straitened up. I smelled it too. It was them, but not just two but three people, and one beating heart.
"Alice?" Huilen asked stepping out of the brush.
"Huilen! How are you? Don't worry, its us, and two of the wolves."
Huilen walked up, then Nahuel, then another vampire girl...
"Tanya!?" Everyone said all together.
"Hi guys!" Tanya said. The Tanya from the Denali Coven.
"What are you doing here?" my mom asked.
"I came down here for to visit Zafrina last year and ran into Nahuel and Huilen. I just haven't been back. Nahuel and I are together now..."
Wow... that's a shocker...
"That's great!" Aunt Alice screeched excitedly. I could already tell what she was thinking... wedding...
Tanya, Huilen and the rest of my family started to talk.
"Hey Nahuel." I said smiling.
"Hello Nessie." He replied with a smile. I heard Jacob growl quietly.
"Hush Jacob. So did the Volturi do anything to your d- father?" I was going to say dad but father seemed like a better term.
"Well they didn't hurt him. Surprisingly, they took him with them to Volterra. Who knows... maybe they liked his idea..."
"Well that was weird. Did they do anything to your sisters?"
"Nope. Nothing. I think Caius has softened up, or Aro didn't allow him to hurt them. We all know Marcus doesn't care about anything." He said smiling.
"It's not the old guys that are doing the stuff. Everyone knows its... what was it that Alice said once... Oh yea, the witch somethings, Jane and Alec."
He shuddered slightly. "Yea. I know all too well about Jane... She came by for a 'visit' two years ago. Huilen got mad because Jane tried her little power out on me. That woman has issues."
"Yes she does... I'm glad they haven't came to visit us. I think they are still afraid of the wolves and my mom."
He laughed. "Probably so."
We spent the rest of the day hanging out with Huilen, Nahuel, and Tanya. It was the end of a good day. I got to talk to someone like me and Alice got to plan another wedding which was going to be in a year at the big house.
My mom put me on Jacob's shoulders. I was already falling asleep.
The next thing I know I'm in the RV bed curled up against Jacob.
I hope you all like it. Sorry it's so short. Time is a killer. Thanks for all the support. Keep commenting.
A week and a half later, we were in Rio do Janeiro.
"Mom, why are we here?" I asked confused. There were no cool attractions in Rio. Well none that I knew of.
"We are going to an island." She replied smiling.
"Not there!?" Jacob complained.
"What's wrong with the island?" I asked Jacob.
"It's where your parents had their honeymoon." He said with a slight shudder.
I was confused. What was that supposed to mean?
Seeing my confused expression, Jacob whispered in my ear, "It's where you were conceived." I thought about that for a minute.
"Yep. Now you see why I don't want to go there."
"It's not as bad as it sounds." My mom said.
"You're right. It's worse." Jacob chimed in.
The thought of my parents- I shook the thought of it out of my head. My mom rolled her eyes. "So Nessie, did you ask Nahuel whatever you wanted to ask?"
"Yes I did. Did you know they didn't kill his father. Instead they took him, and they didn't kill his sisters." I replied.
"Humph." Jacob replied.
"Well isn't that interesting..." She continued to talk about Tanya and Nahuel as we drove, but it wasn't long that we stopped.
"Why are we stopping this time?" We were parked by a marina on the coast.
"We have to take a boat to get to the island." Jacob explained.
"Oh... right..." I replied blushing. I should have known that. It was common sense!
"Wow... This place is beautiful." I said as we walked off the boat and onto the dock.
"Just like we left it." My mom murmured, smiling widely, and looking at my dad. Ewww...
I could make out the silhouette of a house ahead. It was enveloped by jungle vegetation from the view I had.
"Jacob, stop please?" my dad asked with a face.
"Hey. You read my mind... Deal with it." he replied picking me up and putting me on his back. He was going to run human. There was no reason to phase. I wasn't fast enough and I liked being close to my Jacob.
Alice, Jazz, Rose, Em, Esme, Carlisle, Seth, my parents, and Jacob and I all took off running towards the house in the distance. Em, Jazz, and my dad carried Jacob, Seth, and my bags.
"Hopefully Kaure stocked the house with enough food." My dad said.
"She did." Alice confirmed.
"You mean the same Kaure as last time?" My mom asked bewildered.
"Yes the same one."
"Wow..." She was obviously thinking about something. I didn't care. I had my Jacob and I could smell a jaguar. I put my hand on Jacob to show him what I was wanting and he stopped.
"It'll only take a few minutes." I said smiling. The rest of my family had stopped but I waved them on.
To my left up a tree was my prey. A full grown female jaguar and two cubs. I wasn't going to hurt the cubs so I jumped up, grabbed her tail, and pulled her to the ground. The one thing I've learned about these Jaguars was the females were more aggressive, especially if they have cubs.
She was on the ground in front of me, clawing at the air and hissing loudly. I jumped in the air fast and landed on her back. She hissed again and I started draining her. She thrashed and tried to fight me off, but I was strong enough to keep her down.
I finished draining her and walked over to Jacob who was leaning against a tree. "You truly are magnificent." He said in wonder.
I smiled and stood on my tip-toes. He leaned down and kissed me earnestly, picking me up in the process.
When my lips were released, he put me back down and started to walk slowly towards the house, hand in hand.
"So what were you thinking about earlier?" I asked.
"Oh nothing in particular... just that it would be funny if things repeated..."
"Your parents made you here," he said shuddering. "It would be funny if..."
Oh... if Jacob and I... "Oh..." I said aloud.
"Your dad has quite a history with my mind..." He said with a laugh. "Did you know I kissed your mom once?"
I nodded. My mom had told me a little over a year ago. When she did all I did was shrug. The past is the past, no need for me to gripe about it.
"Come on. Let's enjoy Isle Esme." Jacob said smiling and swinging me onto his back.
Thanks for your support. Hope you like the chapter. Sorry again it's short.
We spent a week at Isle Esme, snorkeling, adventuring around the jungle areas, eating more jaguars, and other recreational activities.
So now we were back on the boat headed back to Rio. We were going to take a plane out of Rio tonight to someplace across seas. I don't know exactly where, but it's supposed to be a fun surprise.
"I call a window seat on the plane." I said smiling. I wanted to be able to look out and see the world from a new perspective.
"Fine..." Seth sighed. Jacob smiled and I leaned my head against his chest, listening to the pounding of his warm heart.
"You know, I don' t see how you all think Jake and Seth smell bad. I think they smell great." I said sniffing his shirt. "And I don't see how you think me family smells bad, they smell ... sweet."
"You're in a middle area, you don't get the bad smells." Seth replied from the back of the boat. Jacob and I were on the front, getting splashed every now and then, but enjoying the sunset.
"If you say so." I murmured against Jacob's chest. We were both warmer than regular humans so our closeness was not even an issue. I loved it...
I heard my dad cough. 'Sorry dad.' I was thinking about what Jacob had said earlier and I don't think my dad liked that much...
I put my palm against Jacob's cheek, showing him the vacation and all that I loved about it. It wasn't just all the activities, it was also the little stuff... like playing x-box, and racing Jake, walking and talking with him... I loved it all.
Sorry this chapter is so short. I have a camp today and this was all I could write. Please keep commenting and tell me what you think.
"I hate planes. They are so boring." Uncle Emmett mumbled from the seat in front of me. As promised, I got a window seat. Since I was half vampire and had a little better sight, the view from the window was amazing. Blue shimmering waters and an occasional island. It was a sight. "Why can't we just run to Italy?" he continued talking to Aunt Rose.
"Quit whining." She said, not taking her eyes off her magazine. My parents were talking really quite from the row beside Jacob's, Seth, and my row. They had a middle seat along with Jasper and Alice. Grandpa Carlisle and Grandma Esme were beside two strangers in the seat in front of my parents.
"So Ness, how's the view?" Jacob asked smiling, he was leaning across me, looking out the window. I resisted the urge to kiss him. My dad coughed and I blushed. Sorry! I looked back out the window and continued thinking. For some reason we were going to Volterra. Why I didn't know. Hopefully they have a good reason to be visiting.
"I am so glad I'm only half human." I muttered to Jacob. "This place is freezing."
"Well it is nearly February... besides, you always have me to keep you warm." He said with a wink and a bright smile. I saw my dad roll his eyes in the mirror. We were in a rental car driving through Italy. All but my parents, my Jacob, Seth, and I were in the running.
The plane had stopped at some air port in an African Country, then it went strait to Italy. Now we were only about 5 minutes outside of Volterra. From a distance the place looked like a huge castle that lurked in the shadows, but now... It was a bright fortified city. I now knew why the Volturi would live here... it was old fashioned and there were tons of people.
"Now, about when are you all meeting us back up?" Jacob asked. We were going to let Jacob and Seth roam the country side or even the city if they wanted to. No need to start trouble...
"Later this evening." My mom replied passing him a little cell phone.
"Gotcha." he replied pocketing the phone and unbuckling his seat belt. My dad had stopped at the gates of the city.
Seth was already out of the car and Jacob was getting out. Before he closed the door, he leaned in and kissed me.
"See you in a bit." he said smiling, shutting the door, and waving as my dad drove off.
My cheeks were a deep red as I waved back. Within a minute we were out of their sight and in the great city of Volterra.
"Here comes the fun part..." I murmured.
Sorry its short and that it took so long. Hope you all like it!
It was night time before we all got out of the car and headed to this big, beautiful, building. My heart was hammering, my pulse racing, my palms were sweaty. I still had no idea to why were were here. Of all places to go on a vacation, they came here. Well it was only a piece of the vacation, but part of it nonetheless. Had my parents or someone else in my family chose to join the Volturi? Were they trying to pick a fight? Why wouldn't they tell me!?
"Calm down Nessie, it's not bad." my dad murmured to me.
'How is it not bad? Anything concerning them was bad. You have said so yourself!' I thought, directing it at my dad.
"Don't worry." was all he muttered in response.
"Ah, my dear friend Carlisle!" Aro said with a smile and wide arms. We were in this big room that was trimmed in gold. The building we were in was magnificent. Gold covered the walls, dangling chandeliers, and tons of artifacts. This room we were meeting in had jewels in cases that circled the room. Aro and his personal guards were in here, along with Jane, who had an amused face, Heidi, whom I had heard about from my mom, and Aro's wife from the looks of it.
"Hello Aro. It's been a few years hasn't it?" Grandpa Carlisle responded.
"Yes, yes it has. So why have you decided to pleasure us with your company?" So this wasn't Aro's idea.
"We have come to speak to you about a certain issue. I would prefer if you would speak to us in private." He said glancing around the room.
"Of course, of course. You shouldn't mind that my personal guards stay?" he replied looking at Renata and some other vampires that were circling him.
Aro nodded and Heidi, his wife, and Jane, with a snarl, left the room. "Now, what is the issue you spoke of?"
"Most peculiar... I had wondered that myself once I saw in young Edward's mind." Grandpa Carlisle had held out his hand and Aro touched it, then a minute later, he said that. I was totally confused. He walked around the room, tapping his chin, with a thoughtful look on his face. His guard walked with him although he had waved them off.
"No Aro, it isn't that much of an awkward situation. You do not know him as we do. We have learned to live with it... so to speak." My dad said, obviously in response to his thoughts.
"Yes, of course you have." he replied with a smile. Hmmm... awkward situation? Him?
Aro walked up to Alice and said a few things, then he did to everyone else. I couldn't hear him, he spoke too low, even for my ears to hear.
"Ah, young Renesmee." He said smiling and stopping in front of me. He held out his hand and I shook it. I knew he was seeing all that had ever gone on in my life/ mind, but I was oddly calm and peaceful. "Well you certainly have had an interesting life so far, have you not?"
"I like to think so." I said smiling and taking my hand back.
"It seems your vacation has been pretty exciting. Have they told you where else you get to go?" I shook my head no. "A surprise?" He asked looking at my dad. My dad nodded and Aro turned back to me. "Well then, I'm not going to spoil it..." He said with a twinkle in his eye.
"Could you tell me, since they won't, why we are here?" I asked innocently.
"I don't think they want me to tell you. Don't worry though, you will find out soon enough..."
I sighed. "I hate being out of the loop."
"Me too, me too."
"Have you thought of anything?" Grandpa Carlisle asked.
"No... nothing at this moment, but I don't think anything will happen soon that you have to really worry about... If your memories are truthful." He said smiling. He knew our memories weren't lying. It's impossible.
"Well I'm sorry I couldn't be of help, but I do hope you can stop for another visit soon. This has been pleasant and I thank you for it. Young Renesmee, I hope you can forgive us here at Volterra for scaring you all those years ago." I just nodded and smiled.
"Thank you Aro."
