Chapter 8 (Edward) My mind was filled with images of black cloaks. I know I have seen the black somewhere before. It looked old, and the black was as dark as night maybe even darker. Red eyes were peering out from the hood. It made me annoyed that I couldn’t place them…if only I saw the face. Once all the images Alice had seen were gone. I contemplated the images slowly memorizing each piece. Don’t worry I don’t see any possible threats. Whoever they are haven’t made up there minds yet. They are probably just passing through…and maybe I could help with their clothes, ugh. Alice reassured me through her thoughts. I nodded almost invisibly to her. I could feel the worry rolling off of Bella. I didn’t look at her yet because my mind starting filling up with questions. What is it Edward? What did Alice see? Esme asked inside her head. Is it bad? Good? Don’t leave us in the dark! Rosalie growled at me through her thoughts.
Is there a fight? Is it here? I haven’t punched any one in a long time! Of course Emmett would be expecting a fight. Tell us son, what is it that has you worried. I’m no Jasper, but I can feel it radiating off of you. Carlisle told me calmly. It was all very quiet in the room, everybody was looking at me and Alice. I was about to speak when Bella spoke out a question. “Edward, did you hear me?” I looked down at her in confusion. She didn’t speak out loud did she? The look in her eyes told me differently, she meant through her mind. I gazed at her concentrating but as before, I couldn’t her thoughts. I sighed annoyed to be on the outside again. “You’re blocking me again, and I thought I finally got to look into your mind.” She smiled up at me with a victory in her eyes. Then her eyebrows furrowed together and a look of confusion swept across her face. She looked at Alice. “Alice what did you see?” Alice looked over at her taking her eyes off of Jasper. “I don’t know. It was bits and pieces of black cloth and red eyes.” What is this, if some people could make up their minds.. I mean make it a little easier on me. I let Alice keep venting to herself. “I’m going to need a human minute. I will be right back.” I looked down at her again, confusion playing across my face. Well she was human… I kissed her on the lips, just a small peck and she got up and headed toward the bathroom. She took a
few slow steps. Tanya sitting in the chair to her left saw and gave her directions. “Down the hall, to your left.” She gave her a small smile, Bella returning it with a small thank you. I looked over at Tanya and smiled. She smiled back all so quickly. Of course, after all that happened with Bella she would try and get my attention. I sighe and looked away. A vision made me and Alice flinch and stare wide eyed at each other. Vision Bella is looking out the window then she sighs and turns around. To figures grab her and one put a hand on top of her mouth and nose, cutting off her breathing They pick her up and jump out the window. End of Vision Her eyes were full of terror and she looked scared. My mouth was in horror. I raced down the hall running as fast as i could. I opened the door to the bathroom. It was empty, the scent of her lingered in the air. NO! No, no, no, no…. Bella, my Bella. My love and live. Gone. I raced back into the living room. Everybody was standing up, staring at me with horror, I pulled my hands through my hair, about to rip it out. I stared over at Carlisle. What surprised was that his face had recognition written all over it.
“Edward, you know who it is don’t you?” His thoughts were all hovering around Italy. Volterra… the Volturi. “What?! Why would they want to take Bella. WHAT DO THEY WANT WITH HER!.” I screamed at him. I was filled with loss, hatred for them, pain, and missing love. “Edward we need to go…there is a trail to the north. We will find her son. She is part of our family and as one we will get her back. Now lets go.” Carlisle was radiating calm, or was that Jasper… “Sorry Edward. I don’t want you to feel this, be confident. She is like a sister to me in many ways now.” Jasper said softly. “Thank you Jasper. It’s so hard to lose her after I just found her.” I said painfully. He gave me a sad smile. Kate kept thinking of ways to get there, and Elezear was thinking of ways to get passed the Volturi guard. I looked over at them. “Kate, Elezear. I can’t ask that you come with us.” I spoke my voice was a monotone. “Edward, as your family we will help any of you especially Bella.” Kate said truthfully. I nodded my head. “Ok, let us go.” Carlisle said.
We took of running as fast as we could. Alice kept looking through the future. I looked with her. Suddenly An image of Bella came up. Vision Bella lying still on a stone floor, passed out. No food or water. She is locked up in a cell somewhere underground. Suddenly she coughs, and the cough is so weak. She looks right at us as if we were really there. “Edward, I love you.” She whispers so soft, it looks painful. She slips under again, sighing my name. A single teardrop slids down he face. I really look at her and she is covered in bruises and is bleeding on the side of her head. End of vision “NO!” I growled, everyone turned to look at me, keeping with their fast pace. “It’s not to late Edward. She was only passing out. I know where she is.” Alice told me fiercely. “I know we will. I will find her, and once I do, I will let nothing harm her ever again.” I spoke mostly to myself. We kept running, me in the lead now, powered by my anger and pain.
Her face clouded my vision. Her warm, brown eyes, her smile so big, her heartbeat in rhythm with her breathing, she was so beautiful. I could still feel her warm skin against my cold skin. Warming me up. How I was inside her mind, and the love was like nothing I have ever felt for her. I promise, Bella, that wherever you are. I will find you. As if she heard me, I could her sigh my name. In my thoughts my face was being shown to me in her mind. She was here somewhere. I froze. Everybody ran past me, surprised by my sudden freeze. The all stopped and sprinted back to me. “Edward what is it.” Carlisle asked, full of worry. “She is here. Somewhere in the forest, not to far away. I can hear her thoughts again. It’s like a blessing from the lord. Come I know where.” I spoke quickly, hoping to find her sooner. I sighed happily ready to find her and take her into my arms. In the sky, the moon was coming up and the light in the sky was marvelous. I knew that this was a sign. A very good sign. I smiled to myself and kept running towards the beautiful voice.
