Chapter 25 – Forgiveness Is Divine
I walked back inside the house where the reception was still going and left Jacob out there.
"What was that about the pack?" Edward asked.
"The pack found Elizabeth and I when I was gone. They were going to kill us because they believed that the Cullens changed us. I told them that the Cullens didn't change us and that I had killed the vampire who had changed us. They let us go and left us alone." I explained quickly. "I am so thankful that I can read minds sometimes because when I think about that situation, I know that I wouldn't be here today if I couldn't have stopped the fighting." Edward flinched as I spoke. I turned and placed my hand on his cheek, rubbing my thumb across his cheekbone. Edward leaned into my touch. "I'm sorry." I whispered. Edward shook his head.
"Let's not talk about it anymore, agreed?" Edward asked. I smiled slightly.
"Agreed." I whispered. Edward wrapped his arms around my waist and brought me closer to his chest. I wrapped my arms around his chest and rested my head on his chest as we looked out at the party. The Denali clan could no longer be seen and I could only guess that they had left early. I then saw Esme and Carlisle walking towards us.
"The Denali clan had to leave early, Tanya wasn't be a very good sport about this." Esme started explaining. I rolled my eyes. Of course Tanya wouldn't be a good sport about this, she wanted my husband! "The Volturi want a word." I stiffened at the mention of the Volturi. Why did they have to come? I really didn't' want to see them. Esme and Carlisle walked away and went to fetch the Volturi. Edward rubbed his hands up and down my back soothingly.
"It'll be okay, Bella." Edward whispered in my ear as the Volturi approached us slowly.
"Ah, Bella and Edward. Congratulations." Aro greeted us in his usual cheery voice with a huge smile. Jane and Demetri were behind him on either side. Jane glared at me while Demetri looked at me as though he wanted to…I didn't even finish that thought. I shrunk back into Edward's arms, trying to hide myself. Soon Marcus and Caius walked over flanked by Felix and Alec.
"Yes, congratulations. You two make a lovely couple." Caius spoke sourly. I could tell that he wanted to get out of he here, he didn't like being around some of the humans.
"You haven't reconsidered the options laid out to you?" Aro asked. Edward and I shook our heads.
"No thanks, Aro." Edward replied politely.
"Such a waste." Aro muttered. I felt Edward tense and I placed a hand on his arm, hoping it might help him relax slightly. It didn't, Edward started growling low in his chest. I lifted my head off his chest and placed my hand on his chest, Edward looked down at me and shook my head ever so slightly that I doubted the Volturi even noticed. Edward let out a long sigh and looked over my head and out the window. "Bella, may I?" Aro asked with his hand raised towards me. I sighed. This wasn't going to work. If it didn't work on Edward then it most certainly wouldn't work on Aro. I removed my hand from Edward's chest and reached out to meet Aro's hand. Edward was now watching and when Aro moved his hand away, I replaced mine on Edward's chest. "Shame that hasn't changed." I resisted the urge to roll my eyes. I didn't want Aro to know what I had thought in the past. It would be rather embarrassing. Aro had tested that nearly every time we had met. I knew he was going to make Jane try it on me again. "Jane dear?" Aro asked. Edward growled softly. I swatted him on the chest and he glared down at me.
"It won't do anything." I mouthed quickly before turning to look at Jane who was glaring daggers at me. Edward looked between us as Jane tried to use her power on me. Jane began to growl, as her power did nothing. "Don't be put off, dear Jane. I'm sure Bella's the only one." Aro assured her.
"We must take our leave, Aro." Marcus reminded Aro in a distant voice.
"True, Marcus. Thank you for inviting us. Bella. Edward." Aro nodded at us as he spoke our names. We nodded in return before they walked out of the room gracefully.
"Did she hurt you?" Edward whispered once they were gone, brushing the few stray hairs that had fallen out of place off my face.
"No. I have this…shield. It stops people from seeing inside my mind and stops people from using any mind tricks on me." I explained.
"So I have nothing to worry about when she shows up?"
"Nothing." I assured him. Edward smiled in relief.
"Let's dance." He said as he took my hands and dragged me to the dance floor.
