I've never given much thought to how I would die. But dying in the place of someone you loved, seems like a good way to go. Of course I'd miss him. And my dad: Charlie. And my loveing, eratic, hair brained mother: Renee. And I'd miss my husband: Edward. And I'd miss his family: Alice, Jasper, Emmett, Rosalie, Carlisle, and Esme. And of course I'd miss my other friend: Jacob Black. And I'd miss her most of all: Renesmee. But if I had to die for ALL of them, I would. That's how much I love them. I cant stand to see them hurt, or see them in the line of death! I cant bare it like Edward cant bare to see me as a target! I got up off the floor and let my lips curl into a snarl, and let a HUGE growl rip through my teeth. But that just amused them. They all sauntered forward to kill me. Then they'd pluck them all off one by one. Edward, Renesmee, Jacob, Charlie, Renee, Esme, Carlisle, Jasper, Rosalie, Emmett, and Alice. I CANT let that happen. I let them saunter forward as I let my teeth go all Fang like! And I sauntered a few steps toward them, ready to rip there heads off! I know a few tricks from a year ago, with the help of my teachers and of course Zafrina to extend my shield like power over anyone at my commanded will! I stopped as they did. They seperated as I heard a cry of horror come from the center of there crowd. The area seperated and in the middle of it all, I saw what made my teeth re-tract and my lips un-snarl. In the middle of the Vultouri, I saw Renesmee and Edward tied up to a chair that seemed to float and have no way of escaping it. Two members of the Voltouri were behind them. They placed a hand on there heads, and angeled them to the side. They let there teeth extract and they went for the kill. First torture your victims. Second rip them apart, limb by limb. And third burn the peices until they turn to nothing but ash! I let my jaw drop and felt the wretched horror rise over me. I closed my eyes and tried to extend my shield like power, but it didnt work.
"Wondering why your shield can't work Bella?" A girl's voice from the back room asked.
"Yeah! And who are you?" I asked. The two members going for the kill stopped and cleared out of the way as a girl walked up in a jean jacket and black leather pants.
"Well, my name is Ili and I can totally block any body's power. Including yours!" Ili said and she walked toward me and the two Going-For-The-Kill members went back to what they were doing. They leaned in to there necks, and Ili grabbed my arms and put me into a position to where I couldnt move or help Renesmee and Edward. I saw the teeth inches away from there necks and Renesmee looked at me with a tear falling from her cheek and I looked at Edward who was starting to feel the pain before the teeth even touched him. I closed my eyes as the crying out of pain hit the air. That's when I knew Renesmee and Edward were in danger. They were bitten, and they were being tortured. The pain hurt like hell, of course I knew, and I didnt want to see there faces as they were being held prisoner in pain. But something made me look. And I saw Renesmee crying out for me. And Edward crying out to any help including me. I started to cry out in horror and I wanted to kick Ili's ass but I was held tight. My eyes were clenched open and I was made to watch. A rip of laughter filled the air by not only the Voltouri, but Ili too!
-Chapter One: Race To The Finish Line!-
I lay next to Edward on our bed under the covers. Morning arrived and Renesmee was gone today with Jacob looking for a fun day together. It was REALLY cloudy out so Renesmee wouldn't be turned to Ms. Shiney Cullen today.
"How are you?" I asked him.
"Fine, but I just am a little worried about Renesmee with Jacob." Edward answered.
"Edward," I said rolling over to prop myself up on his bare chest. "He is taking GOOD care of Renesmee and is really protective about stuff when it comes to her. Why cant you guys just make up like Switzerland does? It used to bug me but ever since then its sort of amusing!" I said and saw the smile spread on his face.
"What!?" I asked him.
"Nothing. It's just...you look cute when you get mad at me." He said and I blushed. I could see his smile spread wider as he saw me blush which made me blush harder! I hit his chest playfully and I kissed him. He let me fall ontop of him while our lips crushed together. I thought it wasn't AS passionate as some other kisses we shared, but it was a pretty good passionate kiss! I brought my lips away from his, and I started to go get dressed when Edward's hand wrapped around my waist and pulled me back next to him. He pulled me into another kiss that too counted as passionate. He then rolled on top of me.
I walked to our bedroom's bathroom to take a shower. I ran on the hot water (which I guess it doesn't really matter what type of water it is-warm,cold,hot,etc.-cause either way its just water to me...it wont feel as different if I was still human!), and I got it after closing the door. I let myself soak in the hot water and then I soaked my hair. Thats when I started to add the shampoo. I then rinsed and then washed my body. I got all soap-free and I stepped out of the shower and started to dry off in my Dark-Green towel. I dried my hair and got dressed into a white T-shirt and some Jeans. I then stepped out of the bathroom and met Edward on the bed. He was laying there, arms behind head, looking at the ceiling. I placed my hand on his side, "You okay?" I asked him.
"Yeah, fine. Why?" He asked me tkaing his gaze off the ceiling and onto my damp body.
"Its just that...you seem like your not okay." I said and he sat up.
"Bella, its just that...I'm still sort of worried about Renesmee." Edward said and I laughed.
"Edward, she's sixteen years old! Jacob's like twenty! And they are Vampire and Werewolf. What trouble could they get into? Or what kind of trouble could happen?" I asked him and he took a deep breath.
"I guess youre right!"
"I am right! Besides Edward, we got the house to ourselves. We can do whatever we want to do!" I said and I went to the kitchen to get some animal blood Carlisle dropped off a weak before. I brought Edward one when I went back to our room. I then noticed that he had two suit cases out and he was packing our clothes into them.
"Did I miss something, Edward?" I asked him, meeting him in the walk in closet.
"Yeah! I took a lot of thought about this and I decided that we should have Jacob baby sit Renesmee while we go back to Isle Esme." Edward answered pulling out his cell and tossing it to me while he packed some more clothes.
"Uhm, okay then." I said and walked out of the room dialing Renesmee's cell.
"Hello?" Renesmee answered.
"Hey sweetie, put uncle Jacob on for me please." I told her and she handed it to Jacob with an "okay".
"Bella?" Jacob asked.
"Yeah, hey Jake. I have a question. Sort of last minute." I said and he was quite for a moment.
"Just to let you know I didnt kiss her on purpose!" Jacob said and then laughed. "Gotch'ya! Anyway, queston? Shoot!" He said and I took a breath before asking.
"Could you baby sit Renesmee while Edward and I take a vacation?" I asked him.
"Sure! When are you leaving?" He said.
"Oh, late tonight or tomorrow. Just keep her with out at ALL times starting tonight just incase! You can stay here or take her to your house." I said and he agreed to either. He then said good bye to me as I said good bye to him and I walked back to our room and saw that our clothes and swim suits and everything was packed. I tossed him his phone back and he gave me a blood bag. He took one too and we ate in silence till I broke it!
"So, when we leaving and we gotta tell your parents!" I said and he sent a text to Carlisle and Esme telling them to infrom Jasper, Emmett, Alice, and Rosalie about this.
"Were leaving...now!" He said and he turned and came back a second later wearing a grey T-shirt and soem black jeans. He grabbed the suit cases and he put them in the car. I finished my blood bag and I threw it away. I remembered that Carlisle puts fresh bags in every two weeks at Isle Esme, here, and at his house. I turned to get my jacket before going into the hallway and I took it off the hook. I then felt Edward's arms swoop me up off my feet and into his arms. He then carried me to the car and put me in passenger side as he drove. He then drove us to the docks and he placed his car in the parking lot and he rented a boat. He but the suit cases in and we then got in and off we went to Isle Esme.
We got to Isle Esme around...whatever time it was. I hopped out and he did too but with the bags. I tied the boat to the spike thing in the ground and walked with Edward into our Honeymoon House. I plopped down on the couch and I took off my jacket I slipped into on the boat.
"Bella, its one in the morning. Time to go to bed!" Edward said and I stayed where I was.
"Edward, I think I'll sleep here tonight!" I said and he didnt like that.
"No, your going to bed in a bed! Now come on!" He said and he grabbed my hands and pulled me into the back room to where our bed is.
"Edward, I'm tired! But I dont sleep!" I said and he dropped my on the bed. "Can we sleep?" I asked him.
"I'm not sure actually!" He said and he dropped next to me.
"Well, I just need something to boost me!" I said and he was gone and back in a second with a blood bag. I drank it and then he walked away to the front door.
"Where are you going?" I asked sitting up.
"Midnight swim!" He said and I heard the smile in his voice and I went to the bathroom to dispose the blood bag that was now empty. I then went outside with two towels and met by the tree that we once left our clothes on our honey moon. I saw his clothes drapping over the tree and I then stripped down and placed the towels on the tree and I ran to meet Edward in the water where he was actually swimming. We could stay under for HOURS I bet cause we dont breath! I dived under and met Edward waiting for me in the section where the water began to get deep. I touched his bare chest and he pulled me into a kiss and we rose to the top of the water and we got our hair out of our eyes and then went back to kissing. He then pushed us under water and continued to kiss. If I was human still it would ruin this moment. The love, and intimisy, and the passion would fade when I went up for air. But Edward changed me after giving berth to Renesmee. I wrapped my arms around his body and he wrapped his around mine and we went deeper and deeper into the water till our feet touched the bottom sand.
I lay there watching the sun rise from Dawn's awakening and I then turned over in the bed and looked at my naked Edward. He looked into my eyes as I looked into his Golden ones. I wonder what mine looked like right now. I smiled and he smiled back.
"Good morning!" I said and he answered.
"Good morning to you too!" And then he wrapped his arm around my pulling me closer to him.
"So, what are we doing today?" I asked him.
"Well it depends, what do you want to do?" He asked me back.
"Something, different. Lets go jump off cliffs into the water!" I said and he laughed.
"Maybe, but lets get dressed and go do something non-naked and just do something normal!" He said and we got up to get dressed. I grabbed a tank and a pair of shorts and Edward grabbed a button shirt and some jeans. We walked into the living room hand in hand and we plopped on the floor looking at movies. They read "Glitter, RENT, IT" and many more that were old and wierd. We picked out "Ferris Bueler's Day Off" and put it in the DVD player and sat on the couch. We turned on the TV and he popped the couch into a recliner for us to lay on. I sat there as he pressed "PLAY" and I placed my head in his lap and the movie began.
