"oh please mum Elli is my best friend please let here stay" Renesmee begged
"Nessie this life just isn’t a place for a little girl to be" I hated it but it was true I even called her Nessie. She looked at the floor her long black eyelashes casting a shadow on her cheeks, her long bronze hair falling on her face.
"Ask our dad" I said sighing pushing the question on to someone else I couldn’t stand hurting here.
"Nessie you cleaned your room write she’ll be her in 5 minutes I can here the car" the tyres rubbed against the gravel path Emmett and jasper had laid so Elli and her mum Hannah wouldn’t get lost on the way to the house.
"Nessie that shirt has a stain go change it"
I shouted over my shoulder whilst I fluttered around trying to clean the front room.
Edwards arms caught me.
"stop panicking the house looks fine we always have Seth and the werewolves round including sue and you go shopping in the local stores full of humans you can do this" he whispered into my hair.
There was two taps on the door as Elli’s mums delicate hands.
I ran to the door with Nessie by my side.
"Hey Mrs. Barkley we will drop Elli home if you'd like?" I offered as Edward came to my side.
"That would be great if you could how old is this house it’s beautiful" she told me looking up at are cottage.
I smiled "Edwards mother esme made it with the help of Edwards brothers and of Corse some more men. They made it for a present for my birthday and wedding present".
"Wow! .... anyway I will go let the girls play.
If shut the door after Elli had stepped in the house and waved goodbye.
we went to the clearing with a gazebo already set up by jasper and Emmett for if it rained (which it did)
we sat on the blankets and pillows we had brought as we watched Rosalie and Emmett play with Nessie and Elli they loved it because Emmett swung them round and round they squealed as he spun them to the floor then bringing them up before they crashed.
Then we heard it. They were running. Running to us. Not stopping. We all stopped. Froze. It was too late to run. too late to hide only time to Waite. it was too late Elli was now in the secret we had no way to stop are secret becoming hers as well...
every second i get older every second I die a bit more no space for unhappiness no time to wait the sunshine when u smile so make every second a smiling one you are my sun you are my stars you are my moon you are my world the key to my heart rests in your smile.
the poem i had written for Nessie on her 5th birthday. But the thought poisoned my mind the thought of the faces of the people stood in front of me slowly smothered the memory of my daughters smile of Edwards face of Emmett of Rosalie my mind trailed through the members of my family now in danger.
we stood there frozen still until the youngest one stepped forward probably a teenager when she was changed. her long straight white hair curled into ringlets so the purple underneath slithered through looking very much like the poison i saw leaking like black ink over the pictures of my family, but leaking through her hair soaking up until it reached her routs. her ruby red eyes focussed on mine hers was playful her eyes matched her face she was very much still a child.
Her long pupil cloak swept to the floor lose and to big whilst her corset and trousers fit like a second layer of purple skin.
"I call dibs on the human" she sang skipping towards us everyone crouched ready to attack pushing Elli and Nessie to the middle.
She stopped in the middle of her dance towards us her face froze a smile playing on her lips.
"You don’t honestly wish to fight me...do you" she challenged playing with her hair. Edward hissed when she looked at Nessie as did everyone else I put up my shield ready for the attack but not one of us moved to challenge us. She crackled and burst into laughter not even you Emmett even you are going to turn down a fight. Her piercing eyes turned to his face he stood his ground but did not move towards her he simply moved his arm and with a slight movement in his wrist pushed Rosalie behind him. She burst into another giggle fit once again becoming the child but this time every one of her guards roared with laughter. that was when it finally hit me with a bump that the altarlas were here and they would leave and none of us would not one vampire who has challenged the altarlas had survived more than an hour. we were doomed but this time we were killing the wolves and Elli’s family and charlie renee everyone everyone we have ever known or loved will not live to see the light of day again the only way they will live longer than an hour was if we managed to keep ivory the beautiful teenager in front of me bizzy for longer.
the altarlas story
The altarlas were all part of the volturi guard but they devoted there life to protecting ivory, for one reason ivory is aro's daughter but she did not need protecting 300 hundered years ago when aro and his late wife created her they got every vampire in the world to bight her if the couldn’t control themselves ones the venom was in her they tour them of of her body and killed them she had the venom of every special vampire in her and her body gave her everyone of those sixth scenes they wanted her to help the volturi but she grew tired of doing as they said as she realised how powerful she was she became more dominate giving orders to the volturi guard until she grew bored of that they gave her her own guard to protect her so she could go out to feed on humans playing with her food for something to do her guards were devoteted to her even whilst she was a spoiled brat to everyone else (including aro) they were the only people she thought as family so she protected them and they protected her.
one day she decided to try and handle the world on her own but her guard refused to leave her so she brought them with her the volturi found out and was enraged that her guard allowed this that demetri hunted one of ivory’s best friends in the guard she exploded with rage she ran to the volturi with the guard behind her also ready to revenge the death they found them half way through killing her so she taw of gelter (one of the volturi members) head of and rose her best friend (honey) from the dead no one knew she could do this apart from her and honey they had kept it a secret so no one could use it against them then she stormed to aro and a battle started the battle never ended and both sides are still trying to kill each other but ivory went mad with rage and now she takes it out on every vampire until she finds and destroys the volturi and today ...
was are day.
"did you now I am a mind reader to Bella?" she asked looking at Edward "but a better one then him-she nodded her head in his direction with a giggle-I can read your mind your shield doesn’t work on me unfortunately aww shame you were the only one that had a chance of saving any of them by blocking them by are...talents" she stepped closer everyone around me reacted crouching ready to spring and protecting loved ones I put Renesmee on my back pushing my body in the way Edward tugged me behind him.
She moved so she was another step closer.
"I didn’t know Edward had told you that much about his past “she mused looking slightly behind her at the girl I assumed to be honey she skipped to her side and put her arm over ivory’s shoulders.
"Oh" she said her voice sounding like a wind chime then she grind and turned her head to ivory
"mmm...I smell dinner “she sang her eyes flickering to Renesmee clinging to my back.
I screeched out a growl that was so fears it would have scared Emmett if aimed at him I gritted my teeth and crouched pulling Renesmee tighter on my back, everyone looked at me from the corner of their eyes I knew what they were thinking something along the lines of 'was that BELLA I just heard'
"yes... -she stepped closer still talking sniffing the air whilst ivory clapped her hands and giggled- I tax first bite"
this time I wasn’t the only one to growl this time I pulled the very confused and scared Elli onto my back, Edward stood completely in front of me Emmett on one side with Rosalie pushed behind him whilst she protected Rosalie from the back and jasper on his other side with Alice pushed behind him whilst Alice protecting Elli’s back esme was behind Carlisle protecting us all her arms out to hold Emmett and jasper whilst Carlisle held his hands out to caution ivory and honey.
I stood so I could just see the girls.
"You now" I spat
"for two beautiful names and faces you have the vilest mind I have ever heard" I spat literally on the ground near them and so did Alice and Rosalie.
They giggled both of them arching there back backwards almost so it looked like they were in pain.
Ivory paused. “you now my dear you never technically heard anyone’s mind" she giggled again
"you know you are so cute it’s a shame we have to kill you tell you what you can be last to die then you can yell at us whilst we kill your daughter and Edward huh?"
I fell silent as she laughed at my face I new no matter how much I argued I could not win my head dropped to the ground.
