Chapter 1: Decisions, Decisions.
My হৃদয় beated heavily in my chest as I stood awaiting the arrival of the volturi. I think Jacob could tell I was nervous aswell. He pulled me closer towards him and whispered in my ear;
"Calm down Nessie, It's going to be fine."
I looked around at each of my family members as we stood in the large field where we once had before. Maybe that's what had made me so anxious, the memories from when I was a child. I used to fear their coming, this place. It must all be in my head. I sighed
"I hope your right Jake.."
I could tell I wasn't the only worried one, though. My Mother and my Aunt Rosalie stood close-by , protectivly. My father was talking to Carlisle a few feet away. Jasper and Emmett were play-fighting but I could tell Esme who was watching them carefully was all to worried one would get hurt. I peeked behind Jacob and there stood Seth, Leah and Sam.
I was glad i was able to convince Jacob not to let many come, it may intimidate the Volturi which is the last thing we want to do. If I could have it my way, it would only be me here. But as আপনি can guess that motive was shut down pretty quick.
Hmm.. where was Alice? I looked around until I spotted her. She stood there leaning up against a বৃক্ষ not far off from Esme.
She seemed spaced out.. She must be trying to see the future, but I doubt it was easy for her with the নেকড়ে here.
The air was cool, although It didn't bother me much. Between my body tempature and Jacobs I wasn't likely to be cold.
Suddenly Alice looked up. "They're here"
The same moment the words escaped her mouth, everyone had regrouped. And Just as predicted there walked 5 figures in the distance. I felt Jacob pull me nearer, I could tell he didn't want any মহাকাশ between us.
Sam, Leah and Seth stood behind us, eyeing the figures anxiously. My mother and Father stood beside us. Jasper, Rosalie, Alice and Emmett stood a couple feet infront of us, Carlisle and Esme beside them.
Oddly enough I seemed to be the calmest person there. I felt.. comfortable near them. Like there was nothing to worry about.
Soon those figures turned into the faces of Aro, Caius, Marcus, Jane and Alec.
"Aro" Carlisle nodded
"Ah, Carlisle. So nice to see আপনি again.." Aro greeted.
I scanned each of their pale white faces, yet none showed any fault. It seemed নিরাপদ enough, but I doubt the others felt that way. A pair of eyes in particular caught my attention; Janes. I stared for a moment, curiously. Then I noticed what she was doing - অথবা rather trying to do.
"Jane!" My father exclaimed.
She smiled quietly "Just checking"
The rest caught on quick enough, it seemed to thinken the air. Although she still didn't frighten me.
"Jane, we must be kind. Remember all she has done for us..all she could do.." Caius stated strictly towards Jane.
She dropped her gaze, staing at the floor. Although she didn't look at me anymore, I could still tell her hatred only proceeded to grow. I tried to pull away from Jacob, but his arms only tightened in response. I knew he didn't want me close to them, and he wasn't about to let me wonder off now.
"Jake" I whispered "Trust me"
He looked at me for a moment. I stared into his anxious eyes, but made sure mine had no fault. I knew if there was even a flicker of worry in my eyes he wouldn't even think to let me go. He slowly, but surely unraveled his arms.
I smiled lightly, then walked swiftly towards the Volturi.
"Remarkable!" Aro exclaimed as I approched him. ".. So It's true. আপনি have reversed the transformation process.."
"A transformation that shouldn't have tooken place" My father added bitterly.
Caius turned to me "We are greatly sorry for what has happened, but look at it this way; We found a whole new generation to Vampires.."
"She almost died!" Rosalie exclaimed "Are আপনি trying to pull this off as no death, no fowl?"
"She knew the risks before she got into this!" Jane said, in obvious defense of her brother. She lowered her voice "She could have left when there were other close calls-"
"Enough, Jane" Aro commanded
"What?" I heard Esme ask quietly.
I turned to meet my family's anxious glare.
"It was nothing, really. Just a couple close calls with some newborns.."
"You had her around newborns?" Jasper asked, wide eyed.
"She was perfectly safe" Alec ব্যক্ত quickly, defending them.
It fell silent for a moment. It was odd, having Alec speak of my saftey. Especially after- I didn't want to remember the horrible hours. The burning, and then when I turned back. I shook my head slightly, trying to rid the memories.
"None the less, that isn't what we came here to discuss" Marcus said, breaking the silence. He turned to me slightly. "Renesmee, what exactly happened?"
I thought back for a moment, trying to remember the time before the darkness.
"Well I remember running, then i suddenly felt lightheaded.. Almost tired. Then I passed out. I don't recall much after that..But the whole thing was - different."
I didn't know quite how to explain it. The time when I saw my family, the words I heard. The darkness and then the blinding light. It all made no sense to me.
"Was that all?" Aro asked slowly.
I thought for a moment. It would be hard to put it into words, everything I felt, saw, touched, heard. I couldn't make sense of it, how would one explain it?
I looked back at my parents for a moment, I knew my father could tell I wanted to প্রদর্শনী them. She hesitantly noded once, he must be tracking their thoughts, seeing if it's safe.
I carefully took a step closer to them, "Well, I could প্রদর্শনী you. It's quite hard to explain.."
He nodded once. I knew this was against Jacobs rules, I guess this counted as dangerously close because Jake was already at my side. His hand was held on to my wrist, refusing to let me go. I patted his hand softly.
"Jacob, It's fine"
He watched me for a moment, yet again I showed no fault. He let go of me, but stayed দ্বারা my side for what I assume is in case of emergency.
I carefully placed my hand to Aro's ice cold cheek, প্রদর্শিত হচ্ছে him everything that I saw অথবা felt. It was the only way it could be understood. I repeated this with Marcus and Caius. Jacob grew আরো tense each time.
When I was finished, I carefully slipped back into Jacob's arms hoping he wouldn't be too upset with me after this was done. He pulled me a couple steps back with him, creating distance between us and the Volturi.
"Wow." Marcus said, in response to what I had showed them. " This is.. confusing"
I smiled "Imagine how I felt.."
"Has anything else changed? Your speed, agility অথবা even your thirst?" Aro asked curiously
"No, As far as I know, everything is exactly the same"
The field felt tense again, like an orb of suspense waiting to burst. Silence filled the air as each watched me. Everyone met my gaze except for Alec.
I could tell he was avoiding me. One part of me hated him for what he did, but the other;as his friend, had forgiven him. I am actualy quite thankful for him. If it wasn't for the friendship we had built there i might have gone insane.
"Well, If that is everything আপনি needed I think it's time we head back" Carlisle suggested firmly.
"Not quite.." Caius ব্যক্ত turning to me. "Renesmee, we know that আপনি will be returning পরবর্তি year, but we were hoping that আপনি could come a bit earlier.."
Wait, had I told Jake I was going back.
"What?" His voice called urgently
"Jacob, I still have to go back পরবর্তি year.."
"Nessie" He ব্যক্ত quietly, holding me closer. "You dont Have to do anything."
"On the contrary" Jane started "She does.." Jane turned to me "That is unless আপনি want the young one to die."
I looked down remembering my promise I had made.
"What is she talking about?" I heard my mother ask curiously
"When I had saved the young one, It was under the condition that she could live only if she went at least a বছর with no faults" I explained " I promised to go back for the end of her last বছর to examine. If I don't then they.. get rid of the child."
"Can't somebody else do it?" Alice pushed
"It's Renesmee's responsibility" Jane said, smiling. I felt like there was a dark twisted side of her, hoping the child would die. Wishing she would get to do it. Although I knew she would rather rid of me then the young one.
I took a breath, getting back on the subject of my return. "What changed that আপনি would need me to come back early."
"We came across an abandoned girl, Half human, half vampire, like you. I beilive she is around two years old. So young, but reckless. We dont know much about her kind and therefore can't teach her. If she can't be taught then were going to have to destroy her.."
"And আপনি want me to teach her?" I asked quietly.
They nodded once, watching me carefully.
I paused for a moment, taking this in. One part of me wanted to stay প্রথমপাতা as I had promised. But then this image of a small girl, like me. Orphaned, confused and probaly scared.But It worried me to think that if i do go, and failed to teach her they would kill her and it would be my fault. But could i really deny her the chance?
"No." Jacob ব্যক্ত staring at them . "I'm not letting her go again with the risk that it may happen once more."
"You could very well go with her.." Caius suggested.
I didn't like the Idea of that at all. As much as I trusted them with me, I didn't trust them with Jacob. Especially with Alec around. I didn't even wan't to think of the possibilities and outcomes with that situation.
I looked back at my family, each seemed to hold a different expression among the lines of panicked and surprised. I looked back at Sam, Leah and Seth. Each of their jaws hung open in awe. I looked back at caius.
"Absolutely not." I was firm with my answer, and I made sure they knew it.
"Renesmee, I don't see the problem with it" Aro insisted.
"..I have saftey Issues.." I said, eyeing Alec.
Aro nodded. "We will give আপনি the night to think about it. If আপনি have decided to not come call us, If so then get on a flight as soon as আপনি can."
They looked up at the rest "Thank আপনি for your time" Marcus said, slyly.
Just before they turned to leave, I got the slightest gaze from Alec. His eyes worried me. I wasn't fearful, I felt bad. They held shame and regret, as if they were searching for forgivness. And i knew he still loved me, but that wouldn't change the fact.
A gust of wind stood in the place of where they stood. I didn't know what to say অথবা do. But I do know that I would not get my way this time either. I knew I would be going with Jacob, অথবা not at all.
