"Alice!" I screamed again. I still couldn't move all I could do was yell uselessly at them to let her go.
I felt cold, hard hands against my body; all of a sudden I was being lifted by my family and carried back home. It didn't take long. I was carried up stairs and laid down on the bed.
I wanted so badly to jump up and go rescue my Alice. They were surely half way to Italy by now, but I could barely turn my head let alone get up. "You have to go after them, I wish I could go but we can't waste time" I said to Carlisle. He was pacing around the room with his hands behind his back, a frustrated yet thoughtful expression on his face. "Your right, we can't wait" he replied.
"Five tickets to Verona, Italy please. I made sure to flash my best smile at the lady behind the desk. Sure she said almost seductively, Bella wouldn't like that. She hit a few key on the computer and moments later handed me the tickets.
The plan was to fly to Verona, run the two hour trip to vulturra, rescue Alice (that part was a little fuzzy), and go home.
I'm glad jasper wasn't here; he still blames me for what happened. I would know even if he didn't say it. He thought I was an idiot for coming up with our plan in the first place, and he thought I was incompetent for not protecting her better. He blamed himself more than anything though.
This is great, just great, what was I going to do? How would I get out of this? They must be coming; I look into the future, yes their coming. All I have to do is wait. I phase out and look to Jasper's future, he's OK. Physically anyway, mentally and emotionally he's a wreck.
A sudden noise pulls me back to the present. I look up to see Aro standing over me. "Hello dear "he said in that sickly sweet voice.
"What do you want from me?" I spat. I knew him to well to fall for his little nice act. "Here we are again only you're alone. Where's your big brother?"
"Shut up" I said. "What do you want from me?"
"You will join me, we will be great, we need your gift."
"Well it's not yours to have".
"Oh but it is now, darling"
Darling, he called me darling that did it, I don't care if their dangerous I was gonna kill him, then with a loud bang the doors sung open, there here!
"Alice" Edward screamed.
"I'm ok" I said. With the shock of the unexpected appearance, Alec let me go and I ran to Carlisle. "It's ok" he said. "I've got you".
"Were leaving now" Edward was by us now. I suspected Rosalie and Esme were waiting in the car.
We ran as fast as we could, Edwards arm was around me making me go faster. "Reading my thoughts he said, "You'll be home to Jasper soon."
They should have been back by now, or maybe they shouldn't, I didn't know. I freaking out my Alice was still far away.
I was broken out of my reverie when I heard a car about a mile away it was Alice's car that's how I knew it so well. They were coming home. About 15 minutes later they pulled up. I ran out of the house and that's when I saw her, hair tousled, eyes tired, and body sore. But she was still beautiful as ever. Within 2 seconds of seeing her I had her in my arms and she snuggled there. I kissed her as passionately as I could without hurting her. She looked into my eyes, hers full of apologies, love, and need. Edward was still behind her, I was thankful that he was with her, I was thankful to the whole family, but mostly to Edward.
"Welcome" he said reading my thoughts.
Ten minutes later I was lying in bed with Alice right where she belongs, in my arms. She told me everything that happened between the times she left to the time she came home. She told me all of the things Aro said, and then calmed me when I started to growl in anger. She told me that she was trying to protect me, and I realized I could not be upset because I would have done the same thing.
"I love you baby" I said then kissed her passionately.
"I love you too" she replied when I had finished and kissed me back.
We stayed in each other's arms for days kissing and talking and making silent promises to never separate again.
