11. Casper's Fate
I couldn't help but cry. Aro has my baby, who may be one of the best weapons he's ever had, through his eyes. Or he may be used as bait to kidnap the rest of us. Casper was going to live as part of the Volturi. Mark paced in the hall, trying to find where Casper was. Jacob had broken at least ten water glasses when he got a drink.
Now I was curious what he was looking for in the fridge. He came back with two bottles of formula.
"We have to feed the kids," he explained. Karrie rushed up to him and took the pink bottle from his hand. After one sip, she threw the bottle on the ground in disgust. I didn't blame her. The stuff smelled horrible. Jeffery walked gracefully into the room. He took the bottle, not paying attention to Karrie shaking her head really hard in warning. Since she can't talk yet, she's been trying to send a message to Jeffery, with no luck. She's only been able to hear what he's thinking. Jeffery still doesn't know what's going on.
Jacob got a kick out of watching Jeffery's eyes widen when he took a sip.
"Okay, Jake, no more formula. That stuff is horrible," I said. I would've laughed if there was no crisis.
In the end, Jacob made some peanut butter sandwiches that the babies could easily chew and seemed to like. I got off of the counter and hugged my Jacob. He leaned against the counter, holding me tight. We can never be really happy, it seems.
Mark ran into the room.
"Guys, come on out," he said, eyes wide. It looked like he's been tortured. We went with him, telling the babies to stay inside. As soon as I reached the door, I heard a familiar cry.
I looked out into the backyard. Casper was in the arms of the very person I didn't want him to know about, ever.
"Your son is very amazing," Aro said joyfully, as he bounced Casper in his arms. Jacob growled.
"Aro, I swear, if you let Jane near my son-" he said with a surge of hate.
"I believe you're at a misunderstanding," Aro said. "I would never bring harm to a little one unless it is a forbidden immortal. I can hear a heartbeat, so no harm came to him."
"Mommy!" Casper wailed, tears rolling down his cheeks.
"Give me my son, now." I shreiked.
"Stop," came a forceful voice. Jane moved out of the shadows. With her was Alec. I fell to my knees in resign.
"Please, what do you want?" I asked, as if I didn't know.
"We want you to be a part of the guard," Aro explained, oblivious to the tension.
"We'll never accept," Jacob roared. Jane laughed.
"Who said anything about accepting?" she asked coyly.
I hadn't noticed the strange mist creeping towards us until it was too late.
"Get everyone, leave the dog," was the last thing I heard before my senses left me.
Bella and Rosalie ran into my room.
"Renesmee and the babies are gone," they both screamed.
We rushed over to Bella's old house and confronted Jacob, who looked destroyed. The door opened, and in came Edward, who went hunting with Alice and Jasper.
"Alice saw the Volturi return, and then they disappeared suddenly," Edward explained.
"Alec, Aro, and Jane were here. They had Casper with them. Then Alec used his powers on us. When it disappeared, Mark, Renesmee, and the babies were gone," Jacob cried.
I hung my head. I would've loved to pick a fight with one of them. Edwrad cleared his throat. Oops.
"Jacob, we can't go to Italy, it's heavily guarded by now. We need to talk to Heram," Edward said.
