My family and I sat in the living room, I impatiently paced back and forth and I was beginning to grate on Jasper's last nerve. It was bad enough he had to feel everyone's nervousness and anxiety but his own too. He was bombarded by six emotions including his own. I continuously paced not being able to stand still and that is saying something considering I am a vampire. I looked at my watch, ten more minutes until they arrive. I have no idea why they bother with these 'once a year visits' to check up on the covens, it's not like we are planning a rebellion against them, well Vladimir and Stefan never miss an opportunity to start a fight with the Volturi, I don't think the Romanian coven will ever forgive the Volturi for what they had done to them so many millennia ago.
Looking at my watch, I realized only three minutes had gone by, I let out a frustrated growl and continued my pacing.
"Dude, relax." Emmett said lounging comfortably on the couch sitting beside Rosalie.
I glared at him.
He held his hands up in surrender.
"Calm down Eddie, just think about your precious Isabella to get your mind off things." He chuckled.
I snarled at him for two reasons.
1) He used that despicable nickname that I hated.
2) He referred to Isabella as if she belonged to me.
In a way Isabella has been plaguing my thoughts ever since I have met her, she is much different from any other human I have ever met. The curiosity that shines brightly in her eyes as she makes a new discovery and her cheery playfulness towards me is amusing. She infuriates me to no end, I would love to know what she is thinking but for some reason her mind is blank. I have never in all my 107 years ever came across a human that was able to block out my ability. But, then again Isabella wasn't your average human, she was so much different from everyone else in her own special way. I feel that she carries a heavy burden on her shoulders, sometimes it is evident on her face, but that occurs very rarely. She is a master at hiding her true emotions.
A trait that I have attributed over the span of 107 years of being a vampire. She was the first human to ever sit with my family and be so easily accepted by Alice and even Jasper, the only one who disliked her was Rosalie. I rolled my eyes at the thought, Rosalie never really liked anybody that's just the cold hearted bitch she is. I noticed she had a scowl on her face from Emmett's previous comment. I suspected that she was jealous of Isabella. For a human her beauty was simply breathtaking. She had amazing dark brown hair that was in loose wavy curls cascading all the way down to her lower back, long beautiful slender fingers, a stunning figure that would make even Rosalie look plain and she had the most amazing smile.
I chuckled lowly to myself as I thought about her. My thoughts were rudely interrupted by Emmett's boisterous laughter.
"Pay up Jasper! I told you he had it bad." Emmett held his hand out waiting for his money.
Jasper grumbled lowly under his breath and handed him a few hundred dollar bills. I frowned at both of them, they had been betting on how hard I would fall for Isabella.
Sighing, that didn't surprise me much, I was the only one in the family without a mate so of course if they were given a chance to bet and see weather or not I would fall in love didn't seem that unbelievable. Alice just laughed at Jasper's expression and muttered some interesting things in his ear that I refused to repeat. I shuddered as Jasper grinned and turned to kiss her. Feeling like I was invading on a private moment I looked away.
Paying attention to my watch- as if it were the most interesting thing in the world it indicated that there was a mere minute left before they arrived. I stopped pacing and leaned on a nearby wall waiting any second now for their grand appearance. Always so dramatic. Seconds passed by and there was a knock at the door, everyone stiffened and held their mates protectively, I pictured me doing that to Isabella as Carlisle went to answer the door. I was snapped out of my thoughts when I heard the devils' incarnate speak.
"Hello Carlisle, Aro sends his best regards to you and your coven." She greeted distastefully.
Jane never liked our Coven, it was probably because we were the few vampires who fought against our nature by hunting animals instead of humans. The idea was never appealing to the Volturi, we were considered odd for doing so.
"Thank you Jane." Carlisle replied politely.
Esme appeared by Carlisle's side smiling warmly at the unwanted guests.
"Please come in." She said invitingly.
Oh, Esme why is that you are so kind? But then again I don't think I could imagine her any other way.
The five of them entered the living room and scanned the room, they each analyzed our every movements and began to walk around the spacious room.
I rolled my eyes.
"There is no need for that you know." I interrupted them annoyed.
Felix turned to look at me with a smug look on his face.
"It is merely precaution." He answered dully.
"From what? What do you think we're hiding?" I asked, raising an eyebrow.
"Edward." Carlisle warned.
Felix and I stared each other down.
"Enough!" Jane's voice filled the air.
Felix broke away but I still glared at him, suddenly I was on my hands and knees clutching my head in pain.
"Jane, please that isn't necessary!" Esme pleaded as she rushed over to me.
"Then, tell your son to learn some manners when guests are in the vicinity, especially if your guests are members of the Volturi." She replied, smiling in a sickening away.
I let out a cry as the pain intensified, her smile only grew wider. The pain became unbearable, my body felt paralyzed and I couldn't do anything about it.
Alec lightly placed his hand on his sisters' shoulder, she took an intake of breath before releasing her power. Slowly, I stood up unsteadily. I warily glanced in her direction to see her watching me expectantly, waiting to see if I would try anything else.
"Let this be a lesson to all of you." She said dryly addressing my siblings while still keeping an eye on me.
The room grew awkwardly quiet, as the guards continued to assess their observations.
Carlisle cleared his throat.
"Alice, why don't you show them to their rooms."
Alice nodded not saying anything and left the room followed by the five strongest guards that Aro had. Jasper painfully watched his mate walk away with those monsters and slumped deeper into the couch.
"Don't worry Jasper she will come back in one piece." Said Rosalie reassuringly, speaking for the first time.
He simply nodded and continued to stare down the hallway where his mate disappeared.
Carlisle approached me.
"Are you alright son?" He asked worriedly.
"While they are here, please do not provoke them, they are reporting everything that happens, back to the three kings." He whispered to me.
Sighing I nodded.
"Will they be attending Forks High?" I asked.
Carlisle stood still for a moment pondering over what I had just said.
"I am not to sure, Aro did not mention this over the phone." He answered.
Nodding again I took the stairs up to my room, glad that the guests rooms were on the other side of the house. I plopped down on my bed and took out my Ipod, plugging my headphones into my ears. I lay down comfortably on my bed and played Debussy while thinking about what type of music my Isabella listened to.
The next morning I got ready, dressing in a light turquoise skirt and a black tank top that had a lace design at the very top and black ballet flats. I packed my bags and left the house, Charlie left before me like he does every other morning, it's surprising how I am use to his absences in the mornings, not that I care. I hopped into the truck and gently smoothed out my skirt. I started the truck and backed out of the driveway and headed towards Forks High.
I parked the truck in my usual spot and got out taking my bag from the passenger seat, I noticed immediately that there were five new scents somewhere along the property of Forks High. I slowly looked around, I closed my door still eyeing around the parking lot. I walked towards the building, the scents smelt very familiar. As I walked into the building a sudden realization dawned on me. They must have been the human drinkers from yesterday.
I smirked as I walked to my locker, things were about to get even more interesting.
When I grabbed the books I needed I walked to my first class where I had that creepy teacher whom I didn't care to know the name of. I sensed two of them before entering the classroom. Both males, I walked in and everyone looked up at me. It has been a couple of months since I have been here yet the humans could still not get used to my presence. Internally sighing I sat in my normal seat, noticing I was sitting beside the guy with dark hair who had sat beside the tiny girl in the limo yesterday. From the corner of my eyes I saw him narrowing his eyes at me. So he remembers me.
The other was the one with messy sandy brown hair that had a nice build, but wasn't as strong as the other one who had a more muscular physique. He sat behind me and I felt his eyes piercing my back as he stared intently at me. I noticed that they wore contacts and no longer wore their cloaks or the insignia necklace they had on yesterday. I sense that they both had a gift, my shield was always up so I never really had to worry, no one was ever able to break through. I sensed that they all had some sort of gift, but the tiny child like girl and the boy with darker hair who resembled her, both had gifts revolving around pain and numbness, the boy who sat beside me was a good tracker. The other two I was uncertain of, their gifts weren't as strong as the other three but were gifts all the same.
Class started and they both stopped staring at me until the teacher had his back turned did they resume observing me. Sighing, it was like the first day of school all over again.
Lunch came slower than anticipated and I rushed into the lunchroom, everyone was talking about the new kids and how they were somewhat related to the Cullen's. I had also learned their names thanks to Jessica- who finally became useful to me for once. The two boys that are in my first period class are Demetri and Alec. Alec had a twin sister named Jane who was in my second period class along with the muscular guy named Felix and the other girl with blonde hair was Heidi.
All throughout class, Jane continuously glared at me for whatever reason. I shrugged as I walked over to the Cullen's table only to see that all five of the new students were seated with the Cullen's as well. Terrific. Edward looked uncomfortable but as soon as he noticed me approaching he stood up and walked over.
"Hello." I greeted.
"Hi." He replied, awkwardly putting his hands in his jean pockets.
I could feel the gazes of everyone at the table looking between Edward and I.
"What's the matter? You seem uncomfortable?" I noticed.
He winced but only nodded.
"Have you been acquainted to the five new students yet?" He asked.
I looked at him.
"Not formally, but I know about them." I answered.
We arrived at the table and I sat down, while Edward sat beside me. Everyone stared. I was beginning to get annoyed.
"Is there something on my face?" I snapped.
The Cullen's eyes widened and they looked away, hiding the smiles on their faces. Even the Ice Queen cracked a grin but hid it with her hand.
I raised an eyebrow at the five new students, who stared blankly at me. I turned to look at Edward.
"Are your cousins mute?" I asked.
Emmett's booming laughter shook the table as he bent over laughing along with Alice's' tinkling laughter.
"No, why do you ask?" He grinned at me.
"They have been staring at me all day." I replied taking a sip of my water.
"Why don't you ask them yourself." He suggested, chuckling.
I turn to look at them. Now, how to start a conversation.
"Well, I am Isabel-"
"We already know who you are." Jane cut me off coldly.
I sat dumbfounded at her impoliteness. I narrowed my eyes at her.
"Nice to meet you too Jane." I retorted sarcastically, plastering on a fake smile.
She raised an eyebrow in amusement. The table went silent. Even Emmett's laughter was silenced.
"Isabella, you really shouldn't provoke her." Alice warned, fear evident in her eyes.
I ignored Alice and focused on Jane.
"And what could she do to me?" I asked conceitedly raising an eyebrow.
"Keep talking and you will surely find out." Jane answered.
"You don't frighten me in the least little girl." I spat standing up.
Edward gripped my arm, trying to get my attention. I shrugged him off.
"Would you like to repeat that once more." She seethed, standing up as well.
"Jane." Alec placed a hand on her shoulder, attempting to calm his sister down. She too shrugged his hand off.
The others watched in fascination as the Cullen's looked frightened for my life.
"She needs to be taught a lesson." She told him.
"Look who's talking, considering you don't even know me." I fired back.
She gripped the table and I felt it splitting in two.
"Jane!" Alec said forcefully this time.
He glared at me.
"Stop provoking my sister." He snapped.
Knowing that I needed to take my leave I decided to have the last word.
"It's not my fault your sister resembles an eleven year old and acts like a bitch." With that I got up from the table and left their shocked expressions in the cafeteria.
Ta Dah! Chapter completed! All of you had answered the question correctly from my previous question which was;
What is the middle name of both Edward and Bella's daughter?
Answer: Renesmee Carlie Cullen
Now, I have to admit that was pretty easy, but not all of the questions will be this easy. Some of them will become a bit tricky. But, I am very happy that you all participated!
Here is the next question:
What month, day and year was Edward born in?
If you answer this correctly I will give you a preview for the next time!
Since you have all gotten the answer right to my previous question from last week here is an excerpt for the upcoming chapter!
"Oh dear, what have you done Carlisle." I shook my head in displeasure as I was informed of the recent news.
I dismissed my guards, wanting to be left alone with my thoughts.
What to do now, how would I deal with this situation involving Carlisle and his coven? Punishing them is the last thing I want to do, but they did break one of our most valued and respected law. I knew Caius would think differently and prefer that we annihilate the Cullen's and Marcus would be indifferent. Caius was never to fond of the Olympian Coven but didn't mind Carlisle or his mate Esme. It would pain me to see their distraught faces as we kill off their children one by one.
I drummed my fingers on my throne rhythmically, playing around with my options. I would have to discuss with my brothers but I already knew what Caius' vote would be. That man loves bloodshed far more than any rogue or newborn vampire I have had the misfortune of meeting and maybe far more than the Romanian's. The information I had been given could be quite vital to our existence depending on what this girl did. I slammed my fist down in frustration. Of all the stupidest things in the world Carlisle, this just had to be one of them.
I snarled, I had such high hopes for this Coven even if their diet was a bit out of the ordinary. So many gifts wasted on such a pitiful disobedience. As the Volturi we do not ask of much but only for your cooperation in respecting the rules and to obey the Volturi and yet here is my longest friend stabbing me in the back. I would love to know the reason for his betrayal. Never in a millennia would I have ever thought that he would have been the one to do this to me.
When it came to Carlisle, I turned a bit soft. I have done so much for him, allowed his to stay along side the Volturi for some time and even gave him advice and helped him through his as a vampire. Why, Carlisle? You are making me regret the decisions I have made when it came to you. And you threw it all away, the life you fantasized about is simply going to disappear because of your bad judgment.
I clucked my tongue disapprovingly while shaking my head and summoned the presence of my brothers finally coming up with my decision.
They sat on their thrones and waited patiently for me to speak.
"It has been decided brothers, that I will be going to Forks in attempt to resolve this problem and to kill the human."
That is all your going to get! Sorry! And I know what you guy's are going to say "FINALLY WE GET SOME ARO ACTION!"
And I will try and update every Friday! The time that I will publish a new chapter will vary depending on if I am busy during the night or not.
