Me and Bella are becoming like sisters. But it's hard to do anything when you're worried about your family. It's been three days since the incident with Aro. I wondered how long the peace would last. "Hey, Ariella. Do you wanna go out hunting with me?" Bella asked. "Um... sure, I guess." I replied. She gracefully bounded over the river. My leap was a little shaky. I ran top speed through the woods, but Bella easily beat me. I closed my eyes and imagined everything could be like this. I ran into something that shouldn't have been there. The path was clear before. Bella screeched to a stop behind me and gasped. I opened my eyes in a flash. It was Aro and his guard. Demetri and Felix came up from out of nowhere and grabbed my arms. "Hey, let go of me, now!!!!" I screamed. Aro let out sort of an evil laugh. It was the oddest thing I bet anyone has heard from Aro. I saw the family zooming past the trees. I wanted to teleport, but for some reason I couldn't escape their iron grip. Everything was flashing in front of me. "This is what you get for double-crossing the Volturi!!!"
bellowed Aro. My arms were squeezed tighter. Edward let out a snarl. Bella pounced right before I went blank. I was wondering if everything had gone chaotic. I woke up, and what I saw shocked me. Nothing. They were all gone. "BELLA!!!!"
I screamed. I darted into the woods, and found them all. Fighting. I jumped straight into the middle of it. "STOP!! Stop fighting!
Aro, I know it was a dirty trick, just... just..." I said nothing more. I zoomed back into the forest. I found and ran into Edward and Bella's cottage. i went inside and left a message on the table near the door:
This isn't working out. I know the "causing you all pain" thing is worn out, but that's not the point. I will always bear the Cullen crest, but I need to go my own way. Good-bye.
I grabbed my necklace at the thought. Getting away was my choice. And I had to do it fast. Alice would find me soon enough. I sprinted with every last ounce of strength I had. I heard footsteps in the shadows. I ran even faster with my last bit of power. That's when my legs gave out. This pain I'm feeling... it's unbearable... I sent a message with my mind:
Why do you do this, Aro?
I could feel his hatred. Right before I went under from the pain being caused by Jane, standing in the background with a smug smile on her face, I thought a bit.
Why am I so important?
Why am I worth saving?
I dedicate this chapter to LoveHarryPotter and ScottishChic, my best buds who will help me out anytime!!! <3
P.S: Sorry it's been a while since I've written. School is overwhelming me.
