Shock flooded through me, like a wave crashing on the beach. He stood on the opposite side of my small, upstairs room, distraught and hurt looking.
We stood in an awkward silence for several minutes. I stared at him, never once removing my eyes from his perfect, marble face. Edward never once met my gaze, instead he kept his eyes low, looking around my room, almost as if we was looking for something.
Finally, i couldnt stand it any longer and I broke the silence.
"Edward, what are you doing here?"
He snapped his head up suddenly, almost as if I'd just broken him from a trance.
"Bella, I just need to see you, to talk to you.
I motioned with my hands for him to continue, to tell him what he needed to talk about.
"I didnt wan to worry you, but i didnt know how else to go about this. But, we need to talk about what you're going to do about this situation with the..you know who, what YOU want to do, not what those dogs want you to do."
I didnt even know how to respond, i didnt even know what i wanted.
"So thats what this is about." I said, nodding.
He stared at me intently with his golden eyes.
"i havent really thought about it yet." I confessed, blushing. This was obviously not what he wanted to hear.
"well, we still have some time to decide, they arent coming for another few weeks.
This should comfort me, but it didnt. Injust a few weeks i would be facing the volturi.
Suddenly terror flodded Edward's eyes. I could tell by his face that he had just found out something bad, due to his mind reading skills.
"edward, what is it?" I knew it was probably about me.
"Alice just had a vision, the voulturi are coming...in a week"
At that moment I knew I couldve thrown up. Terror washed through my veins.
"N..ne..next w..week" i stuttered. He nodded curtly.
"here?" I knw it was a dumb question, and i knew that i knew the answer. "Yes."
"I have to go, i need to talk with Alice" He said suddenly.
"im coming." I said, determined.
He looked hsitant, but he knew by my face that there was no arguing with me.
Alright." He said, sounding nervous.
He picked me up and within a matter of minutes he had carried me to the cullen house.
after getting there all the Cullens went into the kitchen to talk while i waited in the family room.
The approximate twenty minutes i was in there felt like hours. finally, edward came and took me to his bedroom,his eyes wild.
At first, he was reluctant to talk to me, but finally he spoke.
"carlisle thinks the only possible way to keep you from getting killed my the voltui would be to change you...before they get here"
