Reunited PrefaceThe love I had for my family is incredible and I cause the destruction, even though they disagree
. I know what they want and I will do anything and everything for the protection of my family, I would do anything even if that means handing over my life for the life of others i would do it ! But what if i didn't have to, could i keep the ones i love safe without the destruction of my whole world... BPOV: Chapter 1 It was a cloudy day in England and I was running I was returning to America, I had my backpack with the only possessions I have. I sighed; I wish I knew where my family was. I have searched for them for the past 80 years and not once have I come across them – NOT ONCE! I sighed again; I’ve been doing that a lot lately. All I have been thinking about is them I then started the recall my human memories. I was born in 1901 in Chicago, USA; to Renee and Charles Cortez, I was their only daughter but I was their prize possession I had been born with Blood red hair that fell in locks just past my waist, I remembered that my parents thought it was odd about my hair but I loved it and it went super with my Emerald green eyes. My human family were very well off for that time era. Our house was beautiful but my favourite part was always the kitchen andgarden. I smiled at this I was glad that I could remember this though. It was 1918 and I was 17 when the Spanish influenza struck our town. My father had caught it before my mother and I, so he died first. I was very sad about my father’s death but I was angry at the fact my mother wasn’t. That was when I met my new doctor, Dr. Cullen told me that she was to ill to be able to know what was going on. I knew she wouldn’t last long I was scared that I knew it wouldn’t be long before I went myself but I did not want my mother to suffer in pain like my father did. Dr. Cullen told me that I was a lot stronger than my parents so I would have a while left. I really liked Dr. Cullen he was so sweet and compassionate, I knew my mother liked him too she trusted him to look after me that much I was sure about. Then came the night when she was getting worse, Carlisle (Dr. Cullen told me to call him by his first name I wasn’t sure about that but I did as he requested) was there with me he would come and see us day and night – my mother called him over and whispered something to him then squeezed his hand and he looked up at me with a sad smile, he nodded to my mother and she smiled just before she died. I HAD to be careful not to cry when I remembered about my past life, yes it hurt but that was nature and I never regretted that time ever! I remembered that there was another family in our room their son was the cot on the left side of mine he was the same age as me and he was known as the perfect gentleman and he was so handsome, I remembered he had just lost his parents too so he knew what I was going through. He reached his hand out to me and I placed my hand in his, he bent his head down and kissed the top of my hand and squeezed it gently to comfort me I was so grateful. I knew that neither of us had long left and one night; Mr. Masen the boy next to me was fast asleep and I was watching him he looked so peaceful, when Carlisle came in he watched me before chuckling- I sat up and kept my head down I
knew I was blushing but Carlisle just smiled. He came over and sat down on my cot. Carlisle whispered in my ear “I can make you better completely and you will get the beautiful life you deserve eventually but before you can, there will be consequences”. He paused to look at me I knew I was smiling I completely trusted Carlisle but then he continued “do you trust me Isabella-Cemaya?” I started nodding my head frantically and he chuckled. He suddenly scooped me up in his arms and told me to close my eyes I did as I was told I was an obedient child to those who earned my trust. I heard a door crack open so I opened my eyes it was his house it was beautiful. He carried me to the living room where there was a woman with Caramel brown hair; she was holding her hand to someone’s head, who was lying down. I then thought about how cold Carlisle’s hands were and how pale he and she was but then I thought about what Carlisle had said to me back in the hospital, they began to make sense he and his wife I assumed were obviously not human and I had an idea he was going to make not human as well, I didn’t mind I had nothing left. I liked the cool feeling of Carlisle’s hands it was nice and I always liked the cold anyway. His wife looked up at me and smiled kindly at me which I gladly returned as Carlisle lay me down. Carlisle then kneeled down by my head. “ I am very sorry Isabella but you said that you trust me and I promise that me and Esme will look after you like you are our own”. I grabbed his hand and spoke to him softly whilst he moved my red hair away from my face. “Carlisle I have only you and Esme left and I trust you both deeply, I know that your not human but it doesn’t matter to me and I’m guessing that the only thing left for me is to become like you two and I understand that this is very hard for you to do and you both are practically my parents and I wouldn’t want it to be any different”. When I finished Esme came over and hugged me she looked like she was about to cry but I guessed that she couldn’t and Carlisle looked at me in awe. He smiled before leaning over my neck and plunged his teeth into my neck it was painful very, very painful but I refused to scream because I knew that it would hurt him and Esme and I wouldn’t do that to them. Chapter 2 – I knew there were pieces missing in my memory and I hated it. I knew that I should be remembering something else some one else but I forgot who. I needed to find Carlisle and Esme they were my parents since I had been reborn. I am 109 years old but I want my mum and dad, please god I pray to you let me find my parents please. It then occurred to me that the sun hadn’t risen yet, I stopped to look at my surroundings I realised it was night so I must be in America at last – I must have been running faster than I thought. This place, something looked so familiar that was when I saw the sign….’welcome to Forks’ I was in Forks….YES!!!!!!! I am home this was my first home when I changed into a vampire with Carlisle and Esme, I wonder if the house is still there? I began running in the direction of the house but only at half speed, I thought about staying in Forks for a few days because it was rarely sunny so I could go out in the day once again. Then I caught the scent….it was a coven of vampires that lived here…and there was 7 of them…….7!!!!!!
Ok, calm down Bella I can introduce myself chat for a bit then moved on. I don’t get on well with the vampires that prey on human blood because there’s always a fight. Some thought that ‘vegetarian’ vampires were myths but they were intrigued when they watched me hunt others called me hideous names therefore I never stayed long. But I was never going to change from being vegetarian, Carlisle and Esme were because they refused to be monsters that take human lives and I believed the same. I have never tasted human blood and neither would I want to. I was only a few meters out when I caught the sight of a fire but there was no smoke indicating the death of a vampire so….unless they’re having a camp out I used to do that with Carlisle and Esme a lot. It was a strange thought of mine but it was the only thing that made sense in my mind. I saw I was coming close to a clearing where the fire was coming from and their scents were stronger, something triggered my brain saying that I recognised 3 of the scents but why? I wrapped my arms around my body and let my Blood red hair cover my face but not my eyes. I walked through the last of the trees and stopped slowly. I heard them get up and stand in a semi-circle but I didn’t look up. Then the leader cleared his throat before speaking. “Hello there, my name is Carlisle and welcome to Washington”. Chapter 3 My head shot up, and there stood my mother and father I heard them both gasp and I heard a third gasp as well but paid no attention to it, I had finally found my parents! My eyes began to tear up. “Bella….Bella honey is that…is that you?” She asked me, I could tell that she would have cried if she could’ve, but I defiantly could. “Yes…Hi mum, hi dad”. My voice shook with the tears that were now rolling down my face. Esme rushed over to me a took me in her arms she cradled me as I cried tears of joy as she rocked me back and forth while stroking my hair. I was beginning to calm down so I guessed that one of the other 5 vampires must be talented and that they must also be Carlisle and Esme’s children. Carlisle was behind me and he reached out to hug me and he held me and I could tell that for once Carlisle wanted to cry. He whispered to me so softly “Your home now baby girl, your home and safe and your mother and I love you so much, we always have it’s so good to have you home again, shhhh don’t cry darling, don’t cry daddy’s got you”.Esme joined the hug and I looked up to my parents to see them smiling, I was so happy all I could think was thank you god. They released me out of the hug but Esme placed my head against her shoulder as we walked to meet the others. “kids, we would like you to meet Bella- our first daughter”.The others gasped I looked from to the left first. I spied to girls one with beautiful long blond hair just a bit shorter than mine she was beautiful she smiled at me and I smiled back. Next was a girl a lot shorter with short black spiky hair she reminded me of a little pixie she giggled and waved. Next to her there was a guy with blond spiky hair he was around 6ft and from his ora I could tell he was the one that helped my
calm down I felt really grateful and when he felt this he grinned and I giggled, next to him was a guy who was really big and muscled he had short black hair his arms were folded but he had a cheeky grin on his face he reminded me of a big cuddly grizzly. “Bella darling this is Rosalie, Alice, jasper and Emmett, kids this is Bella your sister”.Carlisle spoke joyfully as he did Rosalie and Alice screamed and ran towards me hugging me tightly we fell to the floor and we couldn’t stop laughing as they hugged me. It was nice, but then my thoughts were interrupted. “Bellcey?”. Some one spokeI knew that voice ….it was Masen….Edward Masen!!!!!!!!!!!! I gasped and looked up and their he was, he was so handsome much more so than all those years ago his hair was place in a messy-arrangement but it was that beautiful Copper from before his eyes weren’t the Emerald green I loved but they were sparkling topaz – my Edward was alive! “Edward?........EDWARD!!!!!!!!” I shouted as I launched myself from my sisters into his awaiting arms. He hugged me close to his chest and buried his face in my hair, I couldn’t believe he was alive but then…..of course Carlisle saw how close we were and that night the person Esme was looking after…it was Edward. I looked up into Edward’s eyes and he raised his hand to stroke my cheek I smiled as he did. He smiled that beautiful crooked smile that I loved from before. “Your eyes are still that beautiful green that I loved”. He spoke softly in his musical voice it was magical. I giggled he never told me that one before. “And your eyes aren’t sparkling emerald green anymore….there sparking Topaz which you know is one of my favourite colours”.I giggled even more and he kissed the top of my head. “Of course I remember, like I could forget….that and your other favourites as well and your biggest clue is that you only wear your favourite colours.”He chuckled, and I was practically beaming. “Now I can’t believe you’d remember that detail, but I’m glad that something about me was left for you to remember me by I had nothing.” I said sadly I can’t believe that I ever forgot him, I had tones of chances to tell him how I felt and I wasted them and after what happened I was so scared that I would never find Carlisle and Esme again that I’d forgotten. Edward placed his hand under my chin and lifted my head to look at him I had a feeling that even though he couldn’t read my mind he knew exactly what I was thinking about. But now that I’m with my family again maybe I will have the chance to and if I do have to leave I won’t go without telling him first. “Bellcey, you know that wasn’t your fault what happened as to why you got taken away from us, but I promise now that we have you back we are NEVER going to let you get taken away ever again! And please, I don’t blame you for forgetting some things everything was difficult back then but it’s not now and I don’t want you to blame yourself, promise me you won’t?” Edward’s piercing eyes were looking into mine I couldn’t help myself I smiled and nodded. He let out a breath of relief and placed his arm around my waist while I cuddled into him as he turned us back to the others. Carlisle and Esme were
glowing and me and Edward just looked at each other in confusion and looked back to them they both just shrugged and grinned. I knew they knew something….but never mind. “YO! Edward, you wanna explain how you already know our new little sister and the fact that you…I dunno CLOSE!” He shouted I felt so embarrassed Carlisle and Esme couldn’t hold their laughter in anymore. “Mum, Dad do you think you couldn’t of held that for I dunno another 10 minutes or so?” I asked shyly, I didn’t know how the hell to explain this and I was worried about what Edward would say and yet the people I thought could explain this properly were laughing their heads off….so unfair! “Sorry honey, we forgot about that one” Carlisle replied after jasper calmed him down enough to speak. I felt Edward chuckle silently, jasper noticed my mood and calmed me. “Thanks jasper” he nodded in recognition. “well kids, you all know Edwards story-the beginning part anyway” Rose, Alice, jasper and Emmett all nodded. “well we kind of left out a little bit, Bellcey is the same age as Edward as human and vampire”. The others gasped in shock and me and Edward just sat down in the grass and Edward held me the others sat on the logs as Esme continued. “Bellcey lost her parents the same time as Edward and then Carlisle and I decided we would adopt Bellcey as we were going to adopt Edward, Carlisle brought Bellcey back to the house and changed her before Edward-only a few minutes difference though, Bellcey didn’t scream through the change we thought something was wrong until after when she told us that she refused to scream because she knew we would be there and she fought it and won!” The others looked at me in awe and Edward a little surprised I knew I would have to tell the story soon because mum and dad and Edward only knew how I got taken but nothing more I knew it wouldn’t be long so I had to ready myself for the truth of my past. EPOV: I looked at Bellcey the love of my life once again in my life, I felt so guilty and angry at myself for not taking the opportunity I had years ago for Bellcey and I to be as close like we are now. Edward what’s wrong your mood just went from being happy to serious self-hatred to blissful, what are you thinking that caused that emotional rollercoaster? I gave a little smirk to jazz to his amusing thoughts. Well I’m guessing that your happiness is due to our little sister that’s now sitting cosy in your arms? Edward I haven’t seen or felt you this happy in over 80 years and it has been decreasing since, and I am begging you stay like this as long as you can Edward you don’t understand how nice this feels! I couldn’t hold my laughter anymore and I saw Bellcey look at me with a puzzled look, I looked over to jazz with my eyes and back to her she smiled knowingly. I adored Bellcey’s smile and she smiled especially when I call her Bellcey it’s one nickname that she loves, she only liked either Bells, Bellcey, Bella or Bella-
Cemaya. She hated Isabella or absolutely loathed her full name she said it was just cause it’s to long but I loved it I thought it was beautiful. Isabella-Cemaya Elizabeth Gadomen Cortez, I was the only one who she trusted with her full name she didn’t even tell Carlisle and Esme her full name only Isabella-Cemaya Cortez. Jaspers thoughts interrupted me just as Carlisle was finishing telling everyone about the day before Bella disappeared from our lives. Edward I don’t know what happened to Bellcey but she just went from blissful happiness to terribly frightened and full of worry I think it might be something to do with her having to tell the rest of us what happened to her when she got separated from you guys. I cuddled Bellcey closer to me as to comfort her through her story I knew she was scared, I could see it in her eyes just as much as Jasper could feel. ESPOV: I was thrilled that I had my daughter back after all this time. I had missed her dearly, Carlisle was very upset I could see it but he tried to be strong for me. Now she was back; I knew Carlisle was happy before after Edward returned after Bella’s disappearance and then when we added Rosalie to the family Emmett and then Jasper and Alice but I knew deep down he was never truly he kept a calm façade on and that’s what the kids learned to respect but differently. to us then happy but I knew
Then when our visitor turned out to be Bellcey; as soon as we knew it was our daughter Carlisle was the adorable man that I first fell in love with. Now our daughter was home where she belonged after 80 years the façade was not needed anymore, he was full of joy and love for our daughter. Now as our half of the story finished I looked over to my son and daughter I knew there was a connection between them even when they were human and now as vampires that has grown. When they were together at first I knew that they were close but wouldn’t admit it for an absurd reason. Then she got taken away and Edward evaporated he wondered off along and did things he regrets always, he came back to us after a bit but he was never the same after losing Bella – now that she’s back I can see it in him he’s back to the way he once was and I loved it. Edward looked at me with a smile. I know you’re listening to my thoughts son, but I will not hide my joy from you or the others and I can’t begin to tell you how happy that Bella is back, that you are back and that my family is complete. He smiled a genuine smile that I haven’t seen for ages. I looked towards Bella and she was happy but I could see that she was worried I wondered what it was that was bothering her, but as I paid attention to what Carlisle was saying and I see he was coming to the end the bit where she was taken and we knew the rest would come from her. Ah it makes sense now, my poor baby she must be terrified. The truth BPOV: It was time to tell the rest of my story Carlisle was finishing off the part of where we were at the festival in Brazil; I was honestly scared of what my mum and dad were going to think of me when they know the truth. I have to tell them straight though, they need to know. Everyone was looking at me now, it was my
turn. “We were all at the festival, it was great it was so colourful and then out of no where it kicked off – hundreds of vampires just started fighting. Carlisle grabbed Esme and Esme grabbed Edward and he grabbed me, we were just getting out and then someone got thrown into me and Edward was knocked over by Esme and Carlisle and I was sent flying into the middle of the fight. I remembered being thrown and I landed in front of a woman she said her name was Maria, I asked her why she wasn’t in the fight she just looked at me like I was insane. Maria had two others with her for protection I guessed, she captured me and threatened that if I didn’t fight either she would kill me or I would be thrown into the fight and be killed. I hated myself for thinking it but I hoped that if I fought maybe then I could stay alive then be able to get away one day and hopefully fine you guys again. I fought for years but only in defence never for vengeance, I never made any team mates as it were, I refused. Maria tried to force me to drink human blood; as I wasn’t allowed human food she allowed me to hunt but didn’t like me only hunting animals she would kill a human from time to time and slit there throat and she would ask a few newborns to restrain me and would place the blood right by my mouth and tried to force me to drink it but I never, not once – it wasn’t who I was and I refused. Maria tried to convince me that if I had human blood I would be stronger when fighting, and at that point I kind of snapped was she calling me weak? I hated her for thinking I was weak so I thought let me prove her wrong show her that just because I’m different doesn’t mean I can’t fight. For 15 years I fought fiercely, I was strong and I made sure Maria saw that, within those 15 years I killed over 90 original vampires and over 130 newborn vampires and that was by myself, no one else, no newborns from my side, no one at all but myself”. I was an absolute monster! How could Carlisle and Esme love me after knowing this and the same for Rosalie and Alice and Emmett and Jazz and…..and Edward; But then if I hadn’t I wouldn’t be here right now I would never have found them again I would have been killed. My thoughts were hard to comprehend even to myself. Seconds later Edward’s grip on me tightened, I looked up into his eyes- they held love for me but shock also at what he had just heard from me but not one ounce of fear? I looked around at the rest of my family; again they held love for me but again shock was written all across their faces. Suddenly Jasper spoke “Maria…she…Bells did she have long brown hair and look like she’s in her early 20’s and have a vampire bite by the side of her eye?” Jasper asked me nervously. I was shocked how…how did Jazz know this? “Yeah Jazz, she did how did you know?”I asked nervously been truthful I’m not sure I wanted to know. All the others gasped, ok now I was really scared how did Jazz know Maria obviously the others knew this but I was wondering maybe Jazz knew her from the beginning of his life? “Because Bells, Maria was the one who changed me and the reason I have all these scars- you know the history of our wars bells, I was part of them because of her!
I didn’t realise she still did battles on that scale anymore….WAIT!” I was getting really terrified she had done this many of times before and Jazz was starting to frighten me now. I cringed into Edward and he hugged me closer. “Bells I don’t mean to frighten you, I just…I can’t believe that my little sister was forced to do this it was horrible enough for me for those long years and I will always remember them but…Bells you must have been truly frightened”. Jazz came over from the logs and sat down beside me and held out his hand for me and I took my brothers hand in mine as he squeezed it gently, I knew Jazz was calming me down and I was glad. “I’m assuming the Volturi got involved, what happened after Bells?” Oh dear god, I couldn’t believe that Maria had done the exact same thing to my big brother all those years ago and Jazz had suffered so much longer…wait ! NOOOOO!!!! I have to tell them about the Volturi…I. Carlisle is not going to like this one bit and neither is Esme. JPOV: I can’t believe Maria did this to my little sister!!!!!! I can feel the pain and shame coming off of her, Maria has no right to have caused my little sister to feel like this. I swear if I ever see Maria again I will make her suffer I don’t give a damn that she was my creator, Bella is my sister and she is apart of this family. If Maria hadn’t been trying to cause trouble my sister would’ve never been taken away from mum and dad and never would’ve been separated from Edward we would have met her just like everybody else when me and Alice joined the family. For mum and dad to suffer through the pain of losing their first daughter must have been so, so hard and for Edward to lose Bella that must have been like…I don’t know the pain would’ve been unimaginable, the thought of losing Alice alone could kill me and for Edward to have actually lost her…..I… I thought I admired him so much before for his control but now god Edward! He must have been some son of a bitch, to have that kind of strength. I noticed Edward turned to look at me then with a smile on his face. Ah crap! Edward I know you heard that, but I’m serious! On both occasions I know what you feel for Bella I hope she realises how much you love her? At this Edward shook his head as a no. EDWARD!!!!!!!! WHAT KIND OF AN IDIOT ARE YOU!!! You had all that time before this and you never once told her you loved her…Jesus Christ Edward, you’ve got to tell her! No wonder why she’s been feeling so scared of telling her past. I thought it was just because of mum and dad that was the reason why. You idiot! Bella has been scared of you finding out because she loves you and was scared at the fact of you not going to like her once you find out. Edward she doesn’t know you LOVE her like you do, she thinks you love her like me and Em do- SON OF A….EDWARD ANTHONY MASEN CULLEN – when Bella finishes you will tell her, we will go back to the house and take her somewhere special and tell her! AND BE QUICK ABOUT IT MORON!!!!!!!!!! I shouted at my brother for being an Idiot, all this time Bella has been worried and it was because Edward was too much of a masochist to tell Bella before any of this had my plan will work better if I get my Alice involved she always gets her way because no one is stupid enough to bet against her ….well that doesn’t include Em. What happened in after?
BPOV: “One of the battles started and as usual I was supposed to go out and join the newborns to fight, but Maria pulled me back; I was really confused as to why she didn’t let me go out and fight as normal, when I asked her she told me that I was her best fighter and she refused to loose me in one silly fight. I was kind of amused because she actually thought I would loose when I had never lost a fight and I was the one who trained our newborns more than Maria. Maria barely fought so I didn’t know what kind of a fighter she was. The fight went on for hours and we were winning we only had lost two newborns out of the army of 36 not including me and Maria. Then out of nowhere we heard footsteps approach, we turned to see the Volturi. Maria decided to run but I didn’t, I just sat down and waited- I didn’t bother trying to escape or fight I had more common sense than that. Felix and Demetri ran after Maria. Most of the guard went to stop the newborns fight there were 34 on our side and 17 on the other it didn’t take long. Aro, Marcus, and Caius and two other guards watched me with surprise; I’m guessing they expected me to fight back or something assuming that I was a newborn too. I placed my palms out front to show that I was surrendering and I had no tricks up my sleeves. Then Felix and Demetri came back I didn’t know what happened to Maria whether she got away or they killed her. Then Felix threw me over his shoulder, that was something and very nerve-racking to be able to see Aro and Marcus still watching me with surprise on there face but I swear I actually considered throwing a rock or something at Caius to wipe that smug look off his face. They took me to Volterra and asked me to tell them my story of how I was changed , I told them that I never met my creators but I told them that I was changed 25 years ago and left it at that. Aro could tell I was leaving out information….because every time I was asked about my past I would cling on to my necklace that Carlisle and Esme got me on my first birthday.” I smiled at the remembering my first birthday. Esme was smiling with joy “honey you kept the necklace all this time?” she asked me in wonder I was shocked that my mum would think that I wouldn’t have. “Of course mum, I would never take it off- it’s what you and dad gave to me its part of who I am and all I had to remember my family by”. I adored my necklace it was a silver crescent moon and a small star attached on the end, they both had an Emerald green filling to match my eyes as dad told me before. “Aro began to notice the necklace and one of the days he asked if he could look at it, I didn’t think anything of it because Aro had been so nice to me so I gave it to him and it was the biggest mistake I could’ve made !” I couldn’t believe I had been so stupid, how I could have fallen for his tricks- Edward began to rub my arm to try and comfort me, I turned my head into his chest and breathed in his scent; it was incredible like lilac, honey and passion fruit. I had missed him so much those first few years I couldn’t believe I had been so distracted that I had forgotten the one person who knew me so well the person that made me feel whole and whom my heart belonged to. I felt Edward press his face into my hair and breathe in my scent as I smiled into his chest. His scent and his
presence alone could calm me down I never understood why though. EPOV: I knew Bellcey was getting upset with herself I could hear her voice laid in venom as she loathed herself for been stupid about something. I tried to soothe her by rubbing her arm and she relaxed and turned her head into my chest and breathe in my scent I had to resist chuckling, I vaguely remember her telling me many years ago about my scent how it relaxed her. I pressed my face into her hair and breathed in her scent- strawberries and lavender, I loved her scent it was heavenly. I kind of understand what she means now I never took much notice before. I hadn’t realised all those years ago how much I loved her, the blood lust took over so much but Bellcey never saw the monster in me she always helped me and I cared about her dearly. When she was taken…I hadn’t realised she’d been through so much and what I knew at the moment, was only half! I know how much I love her I always had done and when she was gone I was like a hollow shell, she was my whole world. Now she’s back I can never let her go again she means so much to me….my dearest Bella. My baby girl has been through enough and trust Aro to make it worse, I swear if he has done anymore damage to my girl I will find out and believe me he will be very sorry! I was shocked this was coming from Carlisle! He is always respectable and calm even his thoughts are I never would’ve guessed he would take this kind of response even though I cannot blame him but I guess it makes it all the worst that Bellcey was his first daughter and Aro his best friend. What did that monster do to my baby sister to make her like this it’s not rightthere seems something familiar about the way she’s acting but I can’t think why. We need to know what happened next, I can tell that Bella’s scared but I can see how much she’s grateful to have Edward with her…they look so cute together…I can’t wait to show Edward my vision of their future! My little pixie of a sister bouncing up and down about a vision….wait…about me and Bella’s future together….I… wow…this I might actually enjoy watching. Hmmm…..what an earth would Aro want with Bella’s necklace I mean it holds only significance to her and no one else unless they new the truth…but that doesn’t make sense Bella said she hadn’t told him anything about Carlisle and Esme…this is confusing to even me…….awwww look at her and Edward they are so cute I’m so glad to see him finally with someone I wonder how long it’ll be before she’s begging for her to do Bella Barbie? Rosalie was giggling in her head what is it with my sisters today thinking we look cute together and I know there up to something or they will be. Hmm….this Is actually amusing over 80 years Edward has been alone, Bella comes back and it’s like they were meant to be together…they are so close now I knew they were close before as humans…she cared about Edward when they were human how many times she would just watch him sleep after he comforted her. Always holding each others hands it was adorable, I knew that if the influenza had not struck when it did…I have a strong feeling Edward would’ve asked for her hand in marriage as soon as they met…he was going into the war and she was a nurse going into the war… even I can tell it would’ve happened and knowing Bella’s parents they would’ve certainly allowed it.
Wait….Carlisle is thinking that? ….I mean I know we were close from what I remember but…wow…Why didn’t I think of it before….once this is all over and she’s back at home comfortably I will ask Carlisle and Esme’s permission first obviously but I will ask her to marry me. I love her with all my heart and I can’t imagine my life without her again! BPOV: “When I gave Aro the necklace I had no idea what to expect really, I didn’t realise that mum and dad’s scents were still on the necklace”. I heard everyone gasp I knew they knew this next little bit of what was coming next. “Once Aro had hold of it he recognised your scent instantly dad, Aro then asked why your scent was on it but I refused to tell him. He tossed the necklace back at me just before Jane and Alec and Felix and Demetri came in he asked me again what I had to do with ‘ The Cullens’ I refused to say a word. That’s when he asked Jane to…well….you know”. I paused as I felt and heard Edward growl I quickly looked up and placed my hand on Edwards face to make him look at me, he slowly relaxed and turned his head to kiss my palm. I smiled and turned to look at the others Carlisle looked full of panic. I had to quickly continue before they got the wrong idea. “Wait, it’s not what you think she tried to use her gift on me but it didn’t work the same for Alec as well. I was glad until Aro then said ‘get her and do as much damage as possible until she talks!’ Aro was absolutely furious. Felix went for me first but I quickly dodged him no problem, he came back at me again and again he got a few lucky shots”. Edward growled so I quickly continued. “But I got a lot more”. I grinned at him and he smiled back but it didn’t touch his eyes, I could tell he was worried about me. “Overprotective fool”. He kissed my forehead then chuckled. “Admit it, you so are I’m telling you one thing that happened years ago you weren’t there thank god and yet you’re furious- seriously Edward you’ve gotta let that incident go. I was five years old and had no experience fighting and Carlisle soon stitched me up good as new, so please don’t get mad”. He grinned at me with a knowing smile before tickling me silly Edward was laughing his head off. “Edward….stop…I may not…have….to breathe but I’d like to….ha...Ha ha…stop! Please alright…alright...you win!!!!!” I shrieked, at last I could breathe Edward was still laughing and I could tell the others were struggling to hold in their laughter. “Cheater”. I whispered Edward chuckled whilst wrapping his arms around my waist. “Then Demetri got involved…that was defiantly fun, I was managing and was not even remotely hurt and that was 3 vampires against little old me”. I couldn’t help but laugh, I heard Edward chuckle too. I looked to the others, Jazz looked impressed and Em just looked downright shocked and everyone else was in disbelief. “Then they decided they had enough games and got 3 other members of the guard involved and they all grabbed me and I was threw into a horrid dark, and damp cell
then it got Interesting…..” BPOV: chapter 4 – Trapped “Wait exactly how did things get ‘interesting’? Alice asked me puzzled. I couldn’t help but giggle I mean come on for a physic you would’ve thought she would’ve seen me continue with my story. “Well Alice if you waited I would’ve continued if you hadn’t interrupted”. I glared at her jokingly and she stuck her tongue out at me, at this everyone laughed and me and Alice joined in. “Well as I was saying, I was thrown into a cell it was dark, damp and highly dismal. At first the cell was fun because I had recently hunted so to pass the time I found ways of escaping but never got all the way out of Volterra. Eventually I began to weaken as I hadn’t hunted in about a month, and the time dragged on. Everyday someone would come and see me usually Felix or Demetri because there was no point in sending Jane or Alec because there powers didn’t work or anyone’s for that matter!” Everyone had there mouths hanging open at this….what have they never heard of someone blocking vampires powers before? “Bell’s did you just say that none of their powers worked on you?” Jasper asked with disbelief written all over his face. “Yeah, Jazz none of the mental or physical for that matter….guys your starting to worry me now…guys…hello?” I was begging to panic and no one was saying anything. “Bella honey calm down, it’s just that….well…there is no vampire in the world we know of that can do that at least not with mental powers AND physical…but please go on we need to know what happened Bella because it’s really important that we know what Aro put you through”. Carlisle asked me in a calm manner but I have a feeling that it won’t last that long. “Okay daddy but…i..Well I can tell already that neither you nor Edward are going to like what I tell you next that I am positive….. For 6 months I had been held captive and I was incredibly weak guards still came to come and see if I would quit the suffering and talk but not one word left my lips. Then one of the days I was shocked, Marcus had come to visit me with two of his loyal guards that never left his side unless he ordered them away. I was scared at what was going to happen but then Marcus spoke to me ‘Isabella I want to help get you out of this cell for your own good, so please don’t be scared and I will help you but you have to trust me and cannot tell anyone anything that I will do for you promise me?’ I didn’t know why I trusted Marcus the way I did, but I did he was different from Aro and Caius I could tell so I agreed. ‘I’m glad you trust me Isabella, these are my personal guards Caleb and Ethan I trust these two with everything and they are loyal to me, I do not hold them against there will and I do not ask Chelsea to use her powers on these two and this is how I know they are loyal everything that I have done that has been kept from Aro these two know about and have never betrayed me’. At this I was surprised I thought Aro knew everything, I didn’t know anyone COULD do anything behind Aro’s back. What I wanted to know was why Marcus was helping me first of all and why would he betray Aro to help me? When I asked his simply said ‘Aro has no right to
treat a young innocent girl like the way he is and I can tell that you are missing someone deeply am I correct?’ I had heard what Marcus’s gift was but I had no Idea he could feel that but I was incredibly grateful. He then whispered to the guard and he came back in seconds with 2 grizzlies, a panther and 2 Elk’s”. I paused to engage my families’ expressions. Edward looked furious the same for the rest of the family except Esme who I can guess was just worried about me. I knew it wouldn’t be long before the horrid extent to my past comes up. EPOV: THEY LOCKED HER UP AND STARVED HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They were going to pay for this and I could tell from everyone else’s thoughts that they were in agreement with me. THEY DID WHAT TO MY LITTLE SISTER!!!!!!!! – Jasper & Emmett and Rosalie and Alice I cannot believe Aro would do this, I swear it might be time for a little visit for Aro and I might bring some friends along to I know the Romanians and some in Asia and in the South that would love to get there hands on Aro and I think I’m willing to let a little mention of him slip next time I see them; Wait Edward don’t get any ideas and that goes for your brothers to that was an errant thought and very wrong of me to do so, I can tell you want revenge and believe me I do to but going to Italy and mouthing off will just get you and your brothers killed then where will you be! – Carlisle OH MY! Oh my poor, poor baby oh thank god Marcus helped her out. OH DEAR! CARLISLE CULLEN DON’T GET ANY IDEARS MR. BELIEVE ME YOU WILL BE VERY SORRY IF YOU START GIVING THE KIDS ANY IDEARS – THEY MAY THINK YOU HAVE ONLY A CALM SIDE BUT I KNOW BETTER! - Esme Wow I never thought that I would discover my father to have a less than calm side….but trust my mother to have an incite on what Carlisle is thinking. Though I am glad Marcus helped her out. Bella cleared her throat to gain our attention back to her story. “Once I was fed; even though he and his guards watched in fascination the whole time. Marcus and the guards sat down next to me, he wrapped his cloak around me to make me feel a little more comfortable.”Wait a sec did she just say Marcus tried to keep her warm and make her comfortable….yikes. Wow…I never thought Marcus would act like that with Bella but ten again it was always hard to resist her charms – Carlisle Everyone else’s thoughts were along the same line, this was kind of incredible I had only met Marcus a few times and every time he never spoke and when he did speak it was always very little from Carlisle’s memories. “Marcus had asked why I didn’t tell Aro as most people always did what he asked, I told him that it was my business and had nothing to do with Aro so why should I have told him. Marcus and the guards chuckled at this and they said they understood completely just not everyone had the guts to do it. He asked me what I had done to get the necklace off of Carlisle and Esme and I said that they were with me for my first Vampire birthday and felt the need to celebrate it, they just nodded and said that he would just tell Aro that but he wanted to know my full story.”
“Ok so I have to say that Marcus has been very kind to Bella but I want to know what did he get out of it, the Volturi don’t do anything without a reason?” I could tell that everyone agreed with me. “Edward, I know what you think but really Marcus did everything for me he was like a brother to me while I was in Volterra of coarse nothing like Em and Jazz are to me but along those same lines. He looked out for me and tried to make me happy by spending time with me not just give me a load of gifts and expects me to be happy like Aro did, and….and if I wasn’t for Marcus…I would not be the way I am now as in how…I’ve returned to you Edward…I would still be that broken shell that…that monster caused me to turn into!!” “What do you mean Bella..What happened?” I was worried now, what happened to my poor Bella. “Edward please, I’ll explain everything later I promise but for now can I continue please without any interruptions please?” She turned to me with those big beautiful eyes of hers now how could I say no, so I nodded my head and smiled. “I asked Marcus how he was going to get around Aro’s gift, he told me that if he takes me with him and he only thinks about that one little bit I told him he can get around it and that he’d been doing it for years without Aro finding out anything. I was worried but I had a gut feeling that he was telling me the truth, I told him about how Carlisle saved me and how everything was how much of good friends me and Edward was and how Carlisle and Esme were like parents to me then how we got separated to the bit with Maria – Marcus was compassionate no where near how much you are dad but it was still shocking after you saying before that Marcus never got close to anyone and that no one really knew him but he was as good as a friend. Marcus understood about being lonely and I didn’t understand until he told me about Didyme it was so sad, hard to believe that he’d been through so much pain for so long and he said that he would never want me to go through the same and that one day he would help me find you guys again”. She looked at me when she said this with a smile; I kissed her forehead and pulled her onto my lap earning a squeal and a giggle. It was nice to hear her laugh so muchI really owed Marcus and Carlisle and Esme were thinking the same things. Jazz just rolled his eyes before Alice came springing over and cuddled into Jazz. “Carry on Bella; I wanna know what happened to our little sister next”. Bella and I just looked at each other before laughing; Alice’s enthusiasm was one of a kind. “Then when Marcus finished Caleb and Ethantold me there stories I was amazed at how they trusted me so much, they said they didn’t always agree with what Aro did and with Marcus he was their master but he never allowed them to call him master only in the presence of Aro and Caius and that they would look after me as long as that was what I agreed to. The same as Marcus and they to said that when they were sent out of Volterra they would see if anyone had come across either you or Carlisle or Esme. They had been with me for over 4 hours before we had to go and see Aro, Marcus gave me gold contacts as the other guards who haven’t met me yet would not appreciate the Green colour of my eyes so I placed them in before going to speak with Aro even though I had no intentions of actually speaking with him. I kept a firm grip on Marcus as I was still getting used to walking again after been cooped up so long or that was what we were going to tell people when they asked; other than that they never questioned it even though Ethan found it amusing that I could handle a full on newborn army but couldn’t face one of the Volturi other than the guards and Marcus. Marcus tried hard not to smile at this but I
could tell otherwise but I just let it pass. As soon as we saw Aro he asked for me to talk but Marcus shook his head and said that after I had told him the truth and that I was still to weak and shy to want to talk, so Aro took Marcus’ hand for a few seconds then he backed off a little a smiled even though it made my skin crawl I hid it well. Then he spoke ‘Now Isabella-Cemaya that wasn’t hard you could’ve just told us that months ago to save yourself all this suffering, but how come you tell my brother and not me?’ I just shrugged and avoided saying what I was dying to say. ‘well now that I know you were involved with my old friend then you may be taken to your new room and you will stay with us as part of our guard but you will train and you will refer back to your original diet’. At this I was furious I would stay until I had an actual chance of escape with Marcus’ help but I refused to hunt humans, Felix and Demetri were about to grab me when Marcus spoke aloud to Aro so that everyone may hear. ‘Aro dear brother I was going to ask you privately but now seems like a good time, I wanted to request that Isabella here join my personal guard and I think she would appreciate sticking to her diet choice and since none of our talents work on Isabella this way she may not have to be forced into staying with us Aro?’ I knew that I was going to have to stay, but I did not expect this of Marcus, and even Aro questioned it. ‘Marcus, why do you wish to have Isabella you have 2 guards already and may I care to ask why she should not be given to Caius or I for that matter?’ Everyone was interested in why Marcus wanted me so they stayed to find out. ‘Aro you have Jane and Alec, Demetri and Renata – Caius do you wish to have Isabella?’ ‘No I don’t I have my favourites, Aro Marcus is right she holds no purpose to you other than the fact of she is Carlisle’s friend. Marcus may have a better use for her and considering she told him the truth over no one else I would say that she will be very difficult to change; quite stubborn this one and I would say that she’s had so long without human blood that she will refuse to have it and it would just be a waste. Let Marcus do what he wishes with her’. Caius didn’t give a damn about me and that was fine with me, so Aro admitted defeat but he said that Marcus must take full responsibility. ‘Ethan, Caleb would you care to and then get her uniform sorted shopping to get her room sorted come with me to the library and escort Isabella to her new room in our wing please I will ask if Renata and Chelsea will take her out and then you will bring her to me where she will she will start her lessons.’
They did just that Aro was impressed with the fact his brother could get me to trust him and as time went on things were settled and I had the perfect façade for everyone other than Marcus, Caleb and Ethan. Caleb and Ethan taught me how to fight but they couldn’t really teach me anything I didn’t already know if not more from Maria. So they would help me with my lessons with the books when Marcus wasn’t available, and when he was he never dismissed them we would always have like a study group and on occasion we would rent a film and we’d watched it together and Marcus would always make sure I had plenty of Chocolate or popcorn or both.” I couldn’t believe all this I mean Marcus and those guards helped her but what about this Chocolate and Popcorn? What the hell? “Bella are you saying that you’re able to eat human food?” Carlisle questioned, I knew he was curious as always trying to learn something new, but this he can’t really think that it is possible?
“Of course Carlisle; Caius discovered that I have human abilities and I know that you’re not going to believe this but he was the one who encouraged it, so now we found out that I can cry, eat, blush and I can sleep but only if I choose to.” This is unbelievable, I mean no wonder Carlisle is fascinated. “That is remarkable Bella no wonder Caius found this interesting”. “Oh yeah I’m loving been able to dream especially when the only things I can dream about are my past!” The sarcasm was evident in her voice. Oh Bellcey, my poor girl the things she must of dreamt. “Well I’ve kind of avoided this as long as possible; these were the lightest points of being with the Volturi. Aro started getting me to go out on jobs with Demetri, Felix, and Jane but Marcus tried to protest telling Aro that I should be used for defence – Even though Marcus had no intentions of using me at all he just tried to make me happy after everything I’d been through enough loss and I’d seen to much death to deal with anymore. But he couldn’t get me out of it. It had been 12 years and Caius had even grown fond of me and Aro asked Caius what he thought but Caius agrees with Marcus and Aro was about to back down when Jane interrupted and convinced him to force me to go with them. While we were out we came across two warring covens each had a few newborns and they were about to fight so we had no choice but to intervene, we split up and wiped out one coven before warning the others that if they continued they would have to be killed as well. But then one of the newborns got a little cocky and went to torment Jane, of course then she tortured him and his mate defended him so like an idiot I got involved and tried to pull the mate away hoping Jane was going to stop. Then he pounced on Jane and I was left to hold his mate- in the end he got away but Jane killed his mate and the rest of the coven fled after given us their promise. Once back in Volterra we told Aro what had happened-Marcus and Caius were furious at Aro telling him that they should not have let me go, that Alec should’ve been sent and it would have turned out better and kept me fore defence. Aro smothered me for the next 5 years and plus trying to get me to forgive him and I did but he never believed it as Marcus and Caius got their way and I was kept for defence only so I didn’t have to worry but the two of them kept a closer eye on me. Until that day Aro, Marcus and Caius and the whole guard were ‘entertaining guests’ so I went outside in the gardens and then it was too late. The guy that escaped 5 years ago had snuck into Volterra and he grabbed me from behind and pulled me into the forest I hadn’t hunted in a while so I was weak and he had recently fed and he was still a lot stronger than me and he blamed me for his mates death and he said I had to be punished.” At this point Bella was crying and I held her as close as possible and rubbed her back and looked at Jazz to try and calm her but it didn’t work. “Ed…Edward….I’m so…..so sorry I tried my best to fight but I couldn’t and he covered my mouth but I couldn’t scream…I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am….please….forgive…me….” She was sobbing her eyes out all I could was whisper sweet nothings into her ear and rock her, I had no idea what he’d done but I didn’t know how to ask.
“Bella sweetheart please…we know you’re upset but what exactly did he do?” Esme asked terribly frightened, she was so concerned about what had happened to her daughter the same as Carlisle and I wanted to know what this monster had done to my Bella. She stopped her sobbing and looked at me while I wiped away her tears. “He…he rapped me…………” No one spoke as I held Bella tightly while she continued to say sorry to me into my shirt, I buried my face in her hair and told her it was not her fault and she had nothing to apologise for and that I loved her and that I was sorry I was not there for her when she needed me. Rosalie was distraught the same thing had happened to her but by her fiancé She rushed over and took Bella in her arms; Bella knew what happened to Rosalie because of the message getting to Aro. Esme and Alice engulfed her in a hug as well. I felt so mad and heartbroken In the 1900’s it was customary to wait until marriage so I’m guessing that Bella was waiting to return to me before that happened and all I could think was how much I needed to prove myself to her now more than ever. “Edward….” She whispered to me her hands directed to me. I took her hands and pulled her back into my lap while everyone went back to where they were. “Bella sweetheart please do not cry, I can only say how sorry I am for not being there for you but please I do not like to see you upset my love… tell me what happened after?” She gasped and looked up at me I was puzzled as to why. “Edward…you’re…you’re not mad at me? You don’t hate me?” Now she was puzzled. “Bella you actually believed that I would be mad at you, and that I hate you? You’re incredible, Bella I love you and the only thing that is running through my head right now is 1. how much I wish I could get my hands on that monster and deliver as much pain as possible to him…” She giggled “…And second?” she asked in wonder, will this girl ever cease to amaze me. I whispered so low that only she would hear me “Well that you’re going to have to find out later once you’ve finished your story I have something that we should’ve done a long time ago”. I pulled my head back to look at her and sure enough there was a hint of a blush on her cheeks, good she figured it out then. BPOV: Edward’s voice was husky and dripping with lust and I knew what was implied. “Well…anyways after he ran off I couldn’t really move I was to shaken, I had covered myself as much as possible before I collapsed and curled into a ball shaking. I then heard someone call my name and I looked up it was Caius his face was paler than normal – he called for the guards before coming over to me and
scooping me up into his arms and running with me through to the thrown room. As soon as Marcus and Caleb and Ethan and Alec and Demetri and the wives came over to see if I was alright, Marcus took me straight away into his arms he was again like the protective big brother panic took over him when he asked what happened. I looked at Alec and Demetri when I told them the name of the guy that had got away all those years ago and Marcus and Caius Order a good portion of the guard to go out and find him and kill him the most torturous way possible. They found him and killed him. It was 3 years since that had passed, and I was slowly getting back to myself and I began training again practising anything and everything over and over again I refused to let myself be that vulnerable ever again. I stayed at Marcus’ and Caius’ side as much as possible they didn’t like me out of their sites. Aro began showering me with gifts and he moved my room to the empty large one next to Marcus and he ordered me to go out with Caleb and Ethan only to buy food for myself and buy clothes. Aro had asked me to buy new things because he wanted me to join the village meetings he had and for once I was glad; glad that I could actually do something to help humans and I was grateful. For the next few years anyone that went near north America, as soon as they arrived back I would ask if they had heard anything usually it was Demetri or Alec I would ask. They became good friends and I began to trust them but I never told them the real reason behind my Equerries. Many years passed and things were peaceful, things went back to the way they were before but only better somehow. Then the trouble came an hour before we heard that the Romanians were coming at us ready for a full out war. Marcus took me and Caleb and Ethan up to our wing he told me that during the fight I was to escape by any means necessary. He wasn’t going to have me fight and possibly get killed and Caleb and Ethan were to leave with me, but they refused they said that they had stood by him this long they weren’t going down without a fight. We agreed that Ethan would help me get out before returning to fight with the others, and that’s what we did. During the battle Ethan and I stood near the back and when it started he helped me get out of the area, we said goodbye and he told me to stay safe. Then I ran as fast as I could, I got to Paris and got a flight over to Seattle and I ran from there I didn’t know where you guys were but I hoped it would be in the North and I had an incline to go visit the old house when I caught the trail of you guys, and well that is it my life for the past 90 odd years. I am so glad to be back with my family even now it’s much bigger but this is the place I’ve always belonged”. Edward kissed my head while Alice and Rose screamed asking what colour I wanted my new room, but then Esme interrupted and said that I would have to wait a while. I told her I didn’t mind and Emmett suggested that I can share with Edward, being honest I didn’t mind that idea all that much and I’m sure that Edward didn’t mind all that much either.
