This is a small book i am 書く about the life of Renesmee cullen after (Breaking Dawn) It is in he rpoint of view for almost the whole time (with a few exceptions) I suggest starting from chapter 1 to get the full impact and information (:
Chapter 18: The 日 Italy became ugly.
I stepped out of Paul's car as we parked into his home. It was a quiet little place, built right off the beach. I wondered if this was Rebecca's preference, または Paul's little tribute to La Push. Paul was much different, as expected though. I hadn't seen him in almost seven years, when he had his wedding. He dosn't come to visit much at risk of phasing. But I had seen rebecca only a couple of years ago. I liked Jacobs older sister, Rebecca. She was different then most, she seemed to put aside things like werewolfes and Vampires. I knew she looked at everyone equaly, she never saw anyone as もっと見る または less then human. It made her easy to be around.
I guess maybe she would've been もっと見る biased until i came along. She maybe even would've hated my family, although i couldn't see it. My mother had always told me that what really brought the two worlds together was me. I had never really understood what she meant until recently. Rebecca had always been quite gracious towards me.
There was one person in particular who didn't like me though, and i knew i couldn't change it. Leah had some sort of resent for me, and unlike the others, it grew stronger after Jacob had imprinted on me. I never quite understood her hatred, but Jacob would never let me be alone with her long enough to find out. I didn't see Leah much, maybe on the odd ocasion when she was with the others, または when we sent to see seth. I could tell i was somthing to avoid, my family was.
I wondered how old Josophe was now, possibly 5?. Josophe was Paul and Rebecca's child, i had seen him when Rebecca visited two years ago. I remember the scare he gave everyone after he dissapeard, only to be found hiding in the closet. It seemed like decades, rather then years since i saw Rebecca and Paul. Although it would be nice to see them all again, i couldn't get too caught up in it. I had somthing i had to do, and i must get it done. Italy. I reminded myself.
On the front porch sat Rebecca, with josophe sitting beside her playing aimlessly with his toys. She stood up as we walked towards the front step;
"Jacob! Renesmee! It is so nice to see あなた again" She smiled, huging us each tightly. She attempted to keep herself composed although i knew she was excited to see her younger brother again.
She and him talked as we entered the house, Josophe was following closly after his father. His little voice rambled on with 質問 about the airplanes, and cars that he may of saw.
I could tell that he was very clueless about the world, and によって that i mean our world. I would have to be careful about what i say. This began to make me wonder if he too would be a werewolf someday.. His eyes gleamed with excitment as Paul told him stories of the airplanes, he looked up to his father.
Jacob put his arm around my waist, pulling me lightly down on the ソファー, ソファ with him. A kind voice broke my train of thought;
"And あなた look great Renesmee!" She 発言しました smiling, acknowlaging my attention
"You too Becca!" I smiled back.
"Has my brother been treating あなた right?"
She shot a look at Jacob. It was quite funny how, even grownup, they would get on eachothers nerves. I felt Jacobs hand ball up into a fist behind my back, i smiled.
"Of course he has, he's wonderful"
I felt his hand unball and lightly took it's place around my waist again. Paul joined us and we continued to talk about past doings, catching up on the years. Rebecca made a wonderful dinner, i helped her clear of the 表, テーブル and go the dishes while Jacob and Paul caught up in the living room.
I picked up a small plate, lightly scrubbing off the leftover residue from dinner. Rebecca was drying one from before, flipping it carefully around in her hands. She sighed,
I smiled "It was how i was raised, It's no problem really"
She laughed lightly as i rinsed off the plate and handed it to her to dry.
"No, i meant thank-you for taking care of Jacob"
I smiled "He hardly needs taking care of, but i do what he lets me"
I heard her sigh quietly "Pauls the same way, always feels the need to protect me. Even with no danger" We both laughed at the common between the two, She became serious for a moment; "Jacob seems so different with you, he seems.. happier. I havn't seen him like this in the longest time"
I nodded, i had realised this too. It may be because he dosn't have to keep anything from me as before. Although i know he hides how anxious he really gets when im not with him.
"What im trying to get at is, just don't blame him for his over protective attitudes. He's waited so long for あなた to come along and now that your here he just dosn't want to lose you".
I thought about it for a moment, The guilt of leaving built up in me. It seemed so much もっと見る impossible now.
Jacob and i slept in the guest room. I fell asleep wrapped up in his arms, secure. I thought maybe i was over anyalizing the situation, maybe i was the crazy one. Either way i knew i would have to leave, reasonable または not. I awoke abruptly around 1 am.
I had not yet been here 24 hours, and i wouldn't let it get that far. I decided i would leave as soon as possible. I carefully unravled myself from Jacob, hopeful not to wake him;
"Nessie?" He asked drowsily
"I'm just getting a glass of water" I assured him. He mumbled somthing then quickly fell back into his sleep. I quietly made my way through the room in the dark. I grabbed a hold of my bag and pulled out a fresh pair of clothing and a sweater. I quickly changed into my jeans and tanktop, i put a small halfsweater over the ensemble as Alice had directed.
I smiled, I was planning to run away to Italy, possibly to my death and i was still worried about alice flipping out over a not well completed outfit.
I rumaged through my bag once more, I was careful to pack somthing. I pulled out my fake ID that my mother had created for me, incase of emergency. I dug deeper and grabbed my wallet, I was sure i had enough money. Not to mention the credit cards.
I roughly pulled out the money from the inside flap of the wallet, careful to unzip it silently. I counted the bills; One, Two...Three.. Three Thousand five hundred. I wondered why my parents thought it was smart to carry around this kind of money. Although it proved to be helpful now.
Looking back at Jacob, i felt my ハート, 心 exelerate. Panic and worry started to run through me, but one feeling in particular stood out; Guilt. I remembered Rebecca's earlier words, i remembered how she told me he was happier- i couldn't think about that now. I had to do this.
I swiftly walked away from the house, getting gradually faster. I found myself in a run によって the time i hit the end of the block. I ran for a few 分 until a reached a near-by gas station. Once finding an efficient adress i proceeded to telephone a taxi.
I waited about 10 分 for them to arrive. Each 分 i got もっと見る anxious, i wondered how long i would have before htey realised i had lefr. Did i have until morning, または a matter of minutes? I only hoped alice wouldn't check up on me knowing they would stop me. Finaly i saw the yellow, gleaming cab pull up infront of me. I anxiously got into the passenger side;
"Airport, please" I directed him. The man was quite average looking. Although i was too full of adrenaline to pay attention to small details.
"In a rush?" He guessed driving away. I fixed my expression into a smile.
"More anxious then in a hurry" I hoped that would evade him from asking any もっと見る questions. I didn't quite know my way around the town, so i cant say how long we were driving for. But i know i counted each moment, keeping track. I was nervous and maybe even happy, but anything except regretful. As he slowed to a stop i quickly hopped out of the cab, throwing him a hundred.
"Hey! Thanks!" He called as i quickly dashed for the airport. Out of breath i made it to the front cash. After getting my flight number and ticket I made my way through security, as i boarded the plane everything felt so close.
It wasn't until i was halfway to Italy when i finaly gathered enough distance to calm myself. My ハート, 心 rate slowed and i was calm enough to think about what was to come.
If this was really it, death that is, then i guess im doing it in a noble fashion. My family has risked too much for me not to take a chance now. Although i dont think death worried me as much as joining them did. I felt my hands shake lightly. I didn't want to be like them; a monster. I was raised with compassion and such, they are not. Joining them would make me what my family and i Dispise, but if i had to do it; i would.
I flashed back memories of when the volturi first came for me; When i was a child. They didn't particularly hate me, and i wasn't quite scared of them, but one Vampire, royal, in particular did interest me.
I beilive she goes byt he nam Jane. I remember staring into her eyes and instead of shying away as asmall child should've, iwas intrigued. Her bloodred eyes were hard, set. Yet there was somthing beneath the loyal, and following eyes. An alterial motive for me, betrayal leaked through and i wasn't sure if i was the only one to notice, または worry. I had a feeling that back in the clearing if she wasn't out numbered that i wouldv'e been taken care of a different way; A way she seemed fit.
I shuddered at the thought, although surely it wouldn't matter. I was sure the volturi would be nothing but.. accepting of my coming.
I woke up as the plane jolted to a stop, collecting myself i stood up and exited the plane. The phone that sat turned off in my pocket suddenly weighed a hundred pounds, i neglected turning it on t first, but then decided they deserved some sort of notice that i was alive.. still alive.
As soon as the phone powered up a call came through. I reconized the number as carlisle's cell phone. Hesitating, i answered.
"Hello?" I asked warily, making my way through the overly crowded building.
Carlisle's usual calm, proceeded voice was now urgent and anxious.
"Renesmee, what on earth were あなた thinking!" His words spoke so fast i could barley reconize them.
I paused for a moment, then whispered;
"I'm sorry.. but i have to"
He spoke just as light "There is always another way"
I knew he was right, but i couldn't let him stop me now. I knew my parents and a few others would be on thier way already. I should really get going. "I'm sorry" I whispered once もっと見る before hanging up.
Out of the airport, i looked around the strangly familiar area, i had only been here once when i was a child. Then again i was accompanied によって a few family members. I remember the large, ancient building being located not too far from here, a good drive. I remembered the adress though.. and i had seen the vast area of volterra many times in my dreams.
A bus ride, and a good halfhour in a taxi i had finaly made it to Volterra. The area was crowded, as most central places, and people spoke forgien tounge. I had picked enough up to get around but my italian vocabulary wasn't quite sophisticated..
I walked past a large 噴水 in the middle of the ancient area.
Each moments felt so slow, as if i only had 秒 left. Although that may not be entirely untrue.. I still didn't enjoy my personal slow motion. I began into a faster walk, making the large doors my target. In the midst of my goal i happened to accidently brush my hand against someone. Immeditly my head spun, i saw an image of myself staring down along with people shuffling thier feet by.
I recoiled my hand and look down, i noticed the person i had ran into was a small child, no もっと見る then four. She had short dark brown hair with a matching set of brown eyes. They stared confusingly into mine.
I was begining to wonder if it is just coincedences または if i can really do somthing else... I found myself backing up in shock. The small child had already wondered away with her parents as i sat ontop of the ledge of the water fountain. I reminced about earlier events, when this similar situation happened on the plane.
I had never experinced it before though, Never have been able to see what somebody was thinking.
I can 表示する somebody, and my father can hear someone, but not once has either of us seen. It was as if it was a mix between my aunt Alice's gift and my Fathers.
There was somthing different about this though, it seemed.. limited. It only started recently, why now?Or maybe it was nothing to do with now. It never happened with Jacob, または Rebecca または Paul.. And little josophe was already in ベッド before i got to do anything but wave.
Then it clicked, it didn't happen all of the sudden. It was there all along, but the trick is that it only works with small children. I wondered if it was because of my lack of childhood experince that devolpled such an unusual guide line, または if it was just naturaly.
It frustrated me that i would have so many 質問 that could possibly never be answered. I looked back at the large building, heading for the ancient, well carved doors. I felt myself hesitate before entering, As if i felt danger. I suddenly became worried, but no time for that. I would have to be メリダとおそろしの森 now.
I walked down the large hallway, looking at the beautiful artwork and masorny that covered the walls and floor.I finaly reached an elevator, stepping in i picked a floor and proceeded down towards my fate. As i reached one もっと見る set of doors, i was stopped. I looked up at the arm blocking my way.
A large pair of bloodred eyes caught my gaze, they stared at me longing with thirst. I felt my stomach twist and my heartrate exelerate. After a long, long gaze he streched his bleach white arm out as to grab me, i couldn't beilive that he would just kill me right here. i spoke up.
"I'm here to see Aro" i blurted out
His half streached arm drop as he walked off into the doors, he signaled me to follow and opened them for me. I stepped inside, staring at the stone filled room. There were onlya few stones that caught my eyes though.
There heads flashed up as i aproched;
"Renesmee.. Cullen" Aro whispered as if surprised によって my attendence.
I noticed Aro, Marcus, Caius, Alec, Demetri, Renata, and Chelsea. I only had a limited knowlodge of the volturi and the guards but i knew who theese were, well at least thier powers. Aro, Marcus and Cauis are the founders and leaders of the group.
Aro has tactile telepathy, with a single touch he can read all of a person's thoughts and memories that they've ever had. Marcus has relational telepathy, he can read the emotional ties between people.
Alec, and his twin sister Jane have もっと見る defense powers. Alec is able to cut off a person's senses, therefore the person cannot smell, hear, feel, または see. Jane is able to cause the illusion of pain, extrodinairy pain. They were only about 13 when they were changed, so young. Yet thier knowlodge base is way もっと見る sophisticated then mine.
Demetri is able to track a person, no matter how far the run. Once he figures them out, he will find them. Renata is much like my mother, in power sense, she had a protective shield. I noticed her always によって Aro, as if her only job is to protect him.
Chelsea can manipulate relationships to make enimies fight, または become family. She is the key to make people want to 登録する the volturi, whether they decide to または not. This reminded me of a もっと見る advanced version of Jaspers gift.
There are a few other guards and then the wifes, but i was never told much about them. The living perfections all looked up at me at the exact same moment, staring in shock.
"Well this is a pleasent surprise" Marcus said, dazed によって my arrival.
"Where are your family?" I heard Caius ask noticing thier abstence.I took a step forward, bringing myself closer towards them.
"Acutaly" I said, surprised my voice was even. " I came alone"
"How remarkable.." Aro 発言しました before bursting out into laughter
"What is the matter with あなた Aro!" Caius spat. Aro became solem, fixing his eyes back on me.
"I do apologize, It is quite amusing though.." He 発言しました smiling at his personal joke.
"May i ask exactly what your speaking about?" I said, in a confused tone.
"Well, your family.. they have been avoiding us visiting, in worry of harming あなた yet they then send あなた right to us.. all alone" His voice softer, confused, questioning at the end.
My eyes flashed up, I suddenly felt a strong urge to defend my family's abstence; "I sent myself . I was away from them for a little bit, took the opourtunity.. This avoids any confrontation that may be regretted, right?"
They nodded solemly, "And now that the.. small talk is aside, Lets talk about why your here." Caius 発言しました assumingly " Aro, have we come to a desicion?"
And in that moment, when the world stopped and i felt like i had died before they killed me, Italy had never looked to ugly to me. In that moment i might have regreted coming, but in the same moment i was glad, all suspence was over. But now the biggest descision awaits to be called, My knee's feel weak, but ハート, 心 is pounding in my chest and i barley managed to keep a composed expression.
"Renesmee, may i ask, what can あなた do.. gift wise" I heard Aro's voice decide.
"What i have always been able to do" I said, making them oblivious to my hidden talant. Although i wasn't sure if it was real. " I am able to control it now though. I can choose when i want them to see"
I heard Caius speak, dazed." Your powers havn't gotten weaker?" He asked. I shook my head, not knowing how to respond. "This is quite rare, あなた see.."
He continued, Him and Aro exchanged glances for a long moment. Speaking too low for my less sensitive ears to hear. Another member of the volturi, marcus,spoke up in answer to my confused expression;
"Renesmee, We have been studying your kind. Yet very few of them have possesed powers like あなた do. And the ones that did posses anything, thier gifts fadded and some dissapeard through the years
Just then Jane found her way into the room, her eyes periced into mine as she swiftly walked towards Aro Caius and Marcus. The same hatred still yearned inside her to get out, i was worried that it may slip, that she may slip, that i would die.
"Well?" She 発言しました tapping her foot impatiently "Have we come to a decision?"
Aro looked up "Not quite yet," He turned to me, his eyes almost excited. " We have a friend we'd like あなた to meet."
It felt like every 秒 was a 年 now. Was this it? is this where i will die?
I stood there as another vampire approched from a distance.
"This is one of our older companions; Eleazar."
The named seemed fimiliar, and even so もっと見る when it had a face to match. Eleazar was an old family friend, much もっと見る to carlisle then anyone else. I could tell he rememered me too as he entered the ancient space;
"Renesmee Cullen?" He asked in astonishment. He then turned to Aro. "Aro, surely there is some mistake.. Carlisle's grandaughter.. Carlisle is a friend."
"Eleazar, We didn't ask for an oponion, we asked for assistance."
"And i agreed, but if i had known the circumst-" His voice was stronger now
"Enough!" Cried Jane "Eleazar?"
He nodded then took a step towards me, just inches away. He focused in on me for a moment.
I had heard, even remembered Eleazar, he was quite talanted. He could sense other Talants and used to be with the volturi until he met his wife.He Then walked back to the steps above where they sat.
"Yes it's true, she has gotten stronger with her abilities..yet.."
"Yet?" Edged on Caius
"There are a couple other things, undiscovered i presume because they are raw and not practiced..."
"A couple?" Demetri asked, dazed.
"You mean she has multiple talants?" Alec 発言しました amazed
Everyones eyes were astonished and anxious to hear もっと見る about this.
"Yes.." Eleazar started " She is also able to see what people are thinking.. well, it is limited to children"
There was silence for a moment until Aro spoke "You 発言しました see?"
"Much like her gift now, but opposite. With a touch she can see what a child is feeling または thinking, in a current time vision. in the eyes of the child."
I let my mind wonder, remember the times on the plane and the time just moments ago. I never thought that it was possible to posses もっと見る then one talant.
"She also has a shield, it's slowly growing through the years and only started working recently"
"Three gifts.." Aro whispered "I've never..Thank あなた Eleazar, i wont be needing any further assistance."
On his way out he whispered somthing towards me, very silently "I'll call Carlisle"
I stood there, astonished によって the sudden news. I didn't know how to react, i knew i was もっと見る worried about how the volturi would react. But i now knew, that because of how rare i was i would be untouchable. They would not kill me.
Everybodies eyes were on me as Aro spoke his final decision;
"Renesmee will be staying with us. She could be of great help, probaly one of the most remarkable things i have seen since Jane and Alec."
I nodded once taking in my fate. I knew it would be unstopable, but suddenly i wasn't worried about my years to come that i may be spending at this royal hideout, but i started to think about my family. Most importantly; Jacob. What would he say? I knew he would be unbeilivebly angry with me, and quite upset. But the scariest part is None of them would let me go without a fight.
