Hey! Thanks for all the comments. I hope you guys are liking my fan fic. Thank you so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so much Halunik for helping me :)
I slowly unfolded the piece of paper. I could hear everyone was anxious to read the letter.
The first thing I saw was the curly writing again. I read the letter out loud.
Hi, my name is Tash. I am truly sorry that I have taken Bella away from you all, but it's the only thing I could do. See the future of all Vampire's in Danger and the only one who can save us all, is you're precious Bella."
I paused, Emmett chuckled.
"I never thought there would be the day when Bella our fragile little human would be off saving all Vampires." Emmett said with another chuckle. Maybe if Bella wasn't missing I would have a laugh at this too. But how could I laugh right now when Bella isn't here with me. I continued to read.
"But if you follow these instructions very closely you might be able to help her.
This is where the lions lie,
But nowhere near the people’s eyes.
but close to where the river flows.
P.s don't try to find Bella, it will be a waste of time."
"Huh?" Emmett said, obviously confused.
"It's a riddle Emmett." Alice said.
"Duh! I knew that." He replied.
Alice's eyes glassed over, I quickly tuned in to see if it was anything to do with Bella. No of course not.
It was Charlie, he was freaking out about where Bella is.
"I better called him, and say that Bella is having a sleepover." Alice got out her phone and dialled in Bella's home number.
Everyone started talking about the riddle while Alice was talking on the phone.
"Hello?" Charlie said into the phone, you could hear the worry in his voice.
"Hi Charlie! It's Alice." She said trying to sound happy.
"Alice! Is Bella with you?"
"Yes she is." Alice replied.
"Thank god, I was worried when I came home and she wasn't here, and there was no note." Charlie said, he at least sounded a bit better.
"Yeah, sorry about that Charlie."
"That's okay, as long as you girls are okay."
"Sure are." Alice was trying to put more happiness in her voice, Charlie wouldn't notice but she couldn't fool us.
"May I please speak to her?" He asked.
"I'm sorry. She is in the shower at this moment." Alice had all of this planned already.
"Charlie. We were wondering if Bella could spend the night tonight?" Alice put on a pleading voice.
"I don't know Alice" Charlie kind of trailed off.
"Please Charlie, we were going to have a movie night and everything." Alice was trying very hard to convince Charlie.
"Okay fine." Charlie said, not being able to say no to Alice's pleading voice.
"Thank you, thank you Charlie!" Alice squealed into the phone, again it was fake.
"It’s okay Alice, take good care of my Bella for me." Charlie said. Too late I thought, Bella is gone and I wasn't here to protect her. It’s all my fault I should have never gone hunting with my family. I should have stayed, then Bella would still be here. I should have gone when everyone came back, then they could have protected her while I was away.
"Edward. Stop it! It's not your fault. And anyway wouldn't you prefer that she was out helping to save all Vampire's so she could be with you?" Alice asked.
"I guess, but why couldn't Tash have taken us? Why couldn't we help then, but can help now?" I asked.
"I don't know. But if you are going to sit here and mope about it that’s fine. But I am going to go to and try and help Bella." Alice said rather harshly.
"You're right, I'm sorry let's go." I said.
"Well dude, we first need to know where to go. Remember the riddle?" Emmett said.
"Well that’s easy, its Goat Rocks. Do you remember how we all used to go hunting there? And there was that river almost at the top of the mountain?" I said.
"You're right. But how do we know that this is not a trap?" Jasper said.
"Jasper is right, we have to be careful. This could be a trap for all of us." Carlisle spoke up.
"But what if it's not?" Emmett said, he just really wanted to fight.
"Then it's not." Jasper said.
"Let's go." I said not wanting to waste any time.
"Shouldn't we have a plan or something?" Esme said. Esme was scared for the family (including Bella) not knowing what was going to happen to any of us.
"That's a bit hard because we have no idea about any of this, all we know is that Bella has gotten kidnapped by a Vampire, and this Vampire 'Tash' says that Bella is off to save all Vampire's, when really 'Tash' could just be setting us into a trap, while she torture's Bella!" I said, I didn't mean to get angry but I just couldn't help it, Bella has been kidnapped for
"I'm sorry guys, it just hard for me right now." I said.
"It's okay sweetie we understand." Esme replied, making me feel even worse. Esme is just so nice and caring, and here I am getting angry.
"But Edward is right, we can't really make a plan without knowing what we are going up against. My idea is that we go to Goat rocks and see what is there and then go on from that, we can't really do anything else. We could try and look for Bella, but I don't think Tash was lying when she said not to bother." Jasper said, and I had to agree with him.
"Well that sounds like a plan too me, Let's go." Emmett said sounding rather happy, he was still hoping for a fight.
We all got into the cars, the same as last time I was with Alice and Jasper, Emmett and Rose went to Emmett's jeep and Carlisle and Esme were Carlisle's car.
We all raced to Goat Rocks. I could already tell that this was going to be a long car ride.
I was trying my hardest to block out Alice's and Jasper's thoughts, but they just kept on slipping into my mind. 'I wish he would just relax, I mean I know that Bella is missing, and we are all worried, but his feelings are starting to rub off on me.' Jasper thought. "I'm sorry Jazz I'm trying my hardest." I told him.
He turned around in his seat to face me. "It's okay Bro, we are all worried." He replied.
Alice knew how to get me just a tad bit more relaxed, she popped in a CD and turned up the sound. It was Debussy, I closed my eyes and put my head back letting the music wash over me. I was daydreaming about Bella letting all of my happy memories with her/ of her wash over me with the music. The first night I crept into her room while she was asleep, the first night that I laid next to her while she slept, our first kiss, the kiss I gave Bella after she had saved me in Italy, actually all of our kisses, all the time's we have gone to our beautiful meadow, the prom, the day we spent on a little beach I had found awhile ago, (Note, I just made it up, it's not in the books)
when she get's embarrassed and her cheeks go that rose shade, how adorable she looks when she sleeps, the way she mumbles in her sleep, the way she says my name (awake or asleep), how she always feel's soft, how she fits so perfectly in my arms, the way she says I love you too me and I know that for some reason she means it, and the way that I love her, how she means everything to me and I wouldn't know how to live without her-
Alice broke my train of thought. "We are here!" She yelled, I guess Bella took my thoughts away the whole trip. The car was parked as close as it could to the forest, Emmett and Carlisle's cars were park just behind ours.
"Everyone ready to go?" Carlisle asked.
"Ready as we'll ever be." I said.
And with that we took off towards the top of the mountain, in the direction that we knew the river was.
The Cullen's going to Goat Rock
