End of The Return
I walked slowly to Jasper, thinking about what he had said, processing each word. When I got to his side I wrapped my arms around him, holding him as tightly as I could. I turned my head to the right and saw what I'm guessing Tallulah had seen originally, the Volturi rushing our meeting room, and heard the fight and screams that came along with it. I tried squeezing my eyes shut, to forget what I had just seen, but I knew that I had to look the other direction. I looked to the left and saw my family, along with Tallulah running, going from place to place..always fighting, always afraid of what was going to happen, but we were all healthy and together.
I wanted to ask Jasper his opinion, but just as soon as my vision started it was ending. I gasped as I looked around the room, my family's faces all watching me, all wondering what I had seen. I looked around and found Edward, who was leaning against the couch for support after seeing what I had seen.
"I guess the choice is clear." He said, his voice raspy.
"It is?" I asked.
"Alice?" Carlisle asked.
"We are at a crossroads, we have only a minute to make a decision. We either stay here and fight for our lives, which will end badly..or we run. We listen to Tallulah and run, keep running for time."
"There is no choice." Esme said sadly, as she looked around the room at each of her 'children.'
The Departure Chapter 1
So..here's the quick version of what has happened in the last two months. It all started when Bella was taken from her own bedroom, it was obvious that one of our kind had taken her and after a few cryptic messages we found out that Gabriel (an old aquantiance of Edwards) had taken her. He was taking his orders from someone but it took us a while to realize that the Volturi were behind the entire thing. We all united as a family and did everything in our power to get her back, which we did after a cross country adventure that taught us all many things.
After we got Bella back Gabriel showed up at the hospital and brought one of the most infamous Volturi Jane with him. They demanded that we give Bella back, but then realized that they could take one of us instead..and they took Edward. Now don't think that we just let them take Edward, Jasper and I fought back the best we could..but they out numbered us, and Jane as always was more then willing to use her power against us leaving Jasper and I screaming in unimaginable pain as they took Edward.
We talked Bella into staying in town with her Father, Esme and Carlisle both staying home to keep an eye on Bella since we didn't know if the Volturi was going to try for her again. The four of us, Jasper, Alice, Rosalie and I set off following the clues left behind as we tried to find Edward and return him to the family and to Bella.
We managed to track him all the way back to Italy where the Volturi had him deep in the underground where they ruled all vampire kind with an iron hand. We all met in Italy and much to our surprise Bella showed up with Esme and Carlisle saying something about how Edward had risked everything for her so she felt she should do the same for him. We managed to arrange a meeting with the Volturi and found that Edward was being held here, that they needed to discuss everything though before they let us go on our way.
They placed all of us into a conference room where we found out the truth about everything..the Volturi felt threatened by our family, and that they were thinking about killing us all..well all of us but Edward and Alice who they felt could be useful. We were all surprised when there was a quiet knock at the door, and when we opened the door there was a tiny, female vampire who said that she was the 'only hope' our family had if they were to survive.
I guess her name was Tallulah, and for what I understand she has a gift much like Alice's. She can see what will happen, she saw that the Volturi wasn't going to give us a chance, they were just going to kill us all and forget that the Cullens ever existed..but she felt bad. She didn't understand why they felt this way about us, she had seen that she would leave with us and possibly become a member of our family.
It all seemed a little too set up to me, but everyone agreed with her, even Edward who must have heard something when he was 'listening' to her thoughts. Tallulah said that there wasn't much time, that if we all wanted to survive we had to leave now since the Volturi had made a decision and were on their way here to kill us all.
