Since I couldn't see her, I decided I listen to her. There was no rule prohibiting that. I waited restlessly, for a conversation to start finally hearing her voice.
"Alice,"she asked, her voice cautious.
"Yes, Liz,"Alice asked, even though she already knew the question.
"How does it feel to hunt,"she got right to the point.
"Well, how about I show you, I would let Edward, but you're really thirsty and he's not allowed to see you, so I will go with you,"she said matter-of-factly.
"But Alice,"I said, upset by her last words,"I want to teach her how to hunt."
"I know, but you can't see her, and her eyes are pitch black."
I growled, aggitated.
"Edward, I see the future, and I see me hunting with her,"she replied like a child who did something bad, but knew they'd get away with it.
"Fine, fine,"I said, giving in,"but I get her to myself for all of eternity."
"Go hunt,"I replied.
I listened to her and Alice moving to the first floor and out the door to hunt. It wasn't fair. I wanted to show her how to hunt. But I guess I could wait till our honeymoon.
I smiled at the thought. Having someone special, my very own wife to be with me for the rest of eternity.
Though I acted selfishly in turning her, in wanting her to come back safely. Rather than let her slip away from me to the black wasteland of death. I never wanted to lose her, even if turning her was my only other option. I would do whatever it took to keep her safe.
So if that meant letting Alice take her on her first hunt, I would. So I waited, impatient for her return.
I walked down the stairs to see that while I was absorbed in my thoughts, the others had made themselves scarce. So I sat reaching out with my mind to know when they would return.
I don't know how long I sat in that position, I had lost all track of time, in anticipation. Finally hearing Alice's thoughts.
Hey Edward, I know what her power is, she only has one ability, but it's really really powerful. We're almost home. So go back upstairs.
I did what I was told and headed back to my room, but I moved at human's pace, so they would be back by the time I was up.
I sat patiently on the end of the bed I had gotten for Bella to sleep in. Though what Bella had done had hurt me beyond repair, or so I thought, I wanted to keep the bed, it tied the room together. I thought, as soon as she rejected me, that I would wait for her to come back, that was until I met Liz. Liz was the one for me. And tomorrow we would marry.
I listened as my future wife walked through the doors.
Edward, you may come see me, and Alice will let you, I can see it, because we figured out what my ability is, but we don't know why I'm so different.
"Alice,"I announced,"I'm coming down."
"No, it's against the rules."
"Alice, he should know,"Liz told her,"before the wedding, so, he's not shocked."
Alice knew she was right.
"Fine, but you've been warned."
I ran down the stairs, full speed, anxious to see my fiance. Until I got downstairs. I pulled her against my chest and kissed her deeply, closing my eyes and inhaling the wonderful scent. Finally I pulled back, opening my eyes to take in her beauty, and seeing her violet eyes.
"You're eyes,"was all I could manage. Why were her eyes violet? Why were her lips soft, why did she have more than one ability? All of these questions filled my head.
"Follow me,"I whispered under my breath, hoping they could hear me. I pulled Liz by her hand up the stairs to Carlisle's study, knowing he was there.
After Alice had followed in, I spoke for the rest of my family to join us, then waited for them to come in.
"Are the Volturi still in the vicinity?"
"No, they've taken the cars and gone north to hunt."
"Good, then we can talk. Everyone look at Liz's eyes, what do you see?"
I heard the gasps of surprise from my family.
"How odd,"Carlisle whispered,"they're violet."
"And that's not all, her lips are soft, and her ability, is only that, one ability."
"But she can do two things, telekenesis and read minds."
"And see the future,"Alice added.
I turned in surprise.
"We figured out her true ability, by we, I mean me, and I clued in Liz, obviously."
"What do you mean, true ability,"Rose asked.
"I'll let Liz explain,"Alice answered.
Everyone turned back to Liz. Waiting for her response.
She looked at me, a little flustered. Then turned to look at our family.
"Well, you know how I showed clear signs of telekenesis? Well, I didn't hear anyone's thoughts until after I kissed Edward. And after that I could here thoughts. Now I had gone hunting for the first time tonight, Alice went with me and I accidently knocked her down and fell on top of her after jumping the river. Well Alice had a crazy idea. Of course I didn't know what it was until too late. She told me to close my eyes, and I did, then,"she paused, looking embarrassed,"she kissed me."
Everyone looked in surprise at Alice.
"Pay attention to Liz,"she stated, emotionlessly.
"Well, now I can see the future, just like her. So we're pretty sure my ability is, if I kiss someone with an ability, then I copy the power into my DNA and I can use that power for the rest of my life or death or whatever it's called."
"Wow, that is a different power, a first. But we can not let the Volturi know about this. They would do whatever they could to brainwash Liz into believing some story, so she would absorb the powers of all of their followers, and use her. She would be an unstoppable force. So what do we do?"
"Well, they know that I'll be going there in a week, so they probably won't have Aro touch my hand or Edward's because he's going with me. The best thing for us to do is not touch Aro, because he'd be able to get inside our heads."
"Then we will wear outfits that require gloves, that way no one suspects anything."
"Alice can whip up some gloves for the women, to match dresses. And the gloves for the guys should match their tuxes. The Volturi are leaving when Edward and I do, that much is clear."
"I'll get right on that sis."
"This is the best we can do, and we will do our best to keep from touching Aro."
And we all left the room to prepare for the wedding. Everyone was decorating, except Liz, who was helping Alice with the gloves.
