Chapter One: Special Mission-Freedom!!
I woke up, startled by a nightmare.
I felt beads of sweat rolling down my forehead and down to my cheeks. I licked away my tears from my lips, reveling in the taste of its saltiness. I wiped away the sweat and tears with the back of my hand and got up from my bed.
Walking to the connected bathroom I looked through the glass windows and saw two birds flying next to each other. Flying, being free.
I sighed in sadness.
How long ago was it when both my parents were killed in front of my eyes? How long ago was it that the Volturi had kept me in this prison that they called 'my home'? How many nights had I spent crying and bawling during the late hours of the night? All I had left of me was my name, virtue and whatever valuables that the Volturi decided to give me. But what about my past? I had nothing except a small music charm around my neck. It was the only thing that the Volturi allowed me to keep.
I stood in the same spot for what seemed like hours, staring out the window. I wondered? This tower is about three feet high, I wouldn't break my legs jumping out of the window, and I could escape! I could be free! Oh, that's right. They would send Demetri to follow my scent to wherever I ran off to and be punished, again. The small crescent shaped scar above my left eye is proof of my last attempt at freedom. Demetri had caught me in the forest and nearly beaten me to death. I would have been dead had Dante not come and save me.
Ah yes. Zero, Dante and Chiara.
Even though they are vampires, they are the closest I have as family.
Zero, he is like an older brother of sorts, even though he scarcely talks to me. But he has never done any wrong to me and protects me from Jane whenever she tries to pick on me. I don't know much about his past or how he even turned into a vampire. Dante found him outside of Volterra just wandering and brought him in to join our small group. He didn't know his own name at the time so we called him Zero and he's kept that name since then. I don't mind much anyway. Zero has platinum blond hair, pale skin and dark golden eyes. He doesn't show emotions very well but he's still beautifully breathtaking.
Chiara. Gods how I love her. She is like an older sister to me. If I ever had a sister, I would want her to be just like Chiara. She's strong, funny, playful, sometimes a little bit too energetic and I just love being with her.
Chiara is about an inch taller than me but is really thin and looks fragile with her pale skin. She had long luxurious brunette hair which glistens in the sun, not like my plain brunette hair, and with looks that could make any girl green with envy. She's always energetic and playful so there's never a dull time when I hang out with her, especially when she plays pranks on Zero.
She was the first, nice, vampire who I talked to since the Volturi captured me.
Chiara was born in 1623 in Italy. Other than that she says that she doesn't remember much of her past. Every human memory is a blur to her.
Dante, he's like a father to me.
He's really tall about 6'4''. His hair is a beautiful blond color, pale skin and has marvelous golden eyes. He's really muscular and has really broad shoulders. He's really big but really gentle. He wouldn't hurt anyone.
He's also really smart and taught me most everything I know, academically wise. Aro assigned him to me and Chiara as our teacher and since then I've been silently grateful to Aro for putting us with Dante.
Dante was born a few years before the Italian renaissance. He lived in Florence and was going to move to Venice, but, he doesn't remember much of his human life after that. He said that the clearest memory he has is the pain of turning into a vampire. He remembers excruciating pain. He had tried to kill himself before joining the Volturi but failed. He joined them knowing no other way, no other acceptance.
Me? Well, my name is Isabella Swan. I prefer to be called Bella, although Zero, Dante and Chiara call me Aria. I'm seventeen years old. My birthday is September 13, 1987. I'm not as beautiful as any of the vampires, although I am as pale as them. Actually I'm the only human that the Volturi treasure, so says Demetri. I have long dark brown hair that reaches down to my backside, my eyes are dark brown, and I'm 5'2 in height. I also love playing many different instruments and singing. I play from all the musical groups, but my most favorite instrument is the concert flute.
I'm very different form everyone else here. I'm part of an extinct race. Some call me an angel and some call me a saint. But I'm neither.
I can cast various spells out of will depending on whether I'm attacking the enemy or defending me and my friends. Dante said that it's my charm that grants me power and music generates my power. My music charm is in the shape of a treble clef.
Dante says that I'm also a shield against the Volturi since none of their mental attacks can harm me.
He calls me a shield.
Between the four of us, we all hate the Volturi. We hate having to work for them and doing there dirty deeds. The Volturi know this but still keep us anyway, calling us the 'Black sheep' of the family. Aro says that our powers make us their strongest defense.
A knock at my door startled me. I turned my head toward the double wooden door and answered a quick yes.
"Bella? It's me, Chiara. Can I come in?" I opened the door for her and allowed her inside of my room. She made herself comfy by throwing herself on my bed.
I laughed at her silliness.
"Yes Chiara?" I walked towards her.
"Mmm? Demetri caught word that a bunch of rouge vampires is attacking people in Foggia." I let out an exaggerated sigh and threw my weary body on my bed landing next to her.
"But Foggia is so far from here and I'm still tired from last night's work!" I started to complain but was stopped by Chiara's laughter.
"You hardly did anything last night besides what you normally do."
"Okay so we're going to Foggia tonight."
"Yes so hurry up and get dressed, but before you do that I think you should bathe. You don't smell quite a good when you sweat."
"Very funny Chiara" she gave me that serious look that said do-as-I-say-or-you'll-get-in-trouble-look "okay okay, I'm going."
"Oh by the way Dante will be joining us on our….journey." My body spontaneously jerked toward Chiara when she said Dante's name.
"Dante? But he never goes with us!"
"Yeah I know. He said he has some special plan that will ensure us…victory, so, he wants to accompany us." Chiara rose from my bed in a swift motion and was at my door milliseconds. "Meet us downstairs in the meeting room; Aro wants to have a talk with us. Don't keep us waiting." that last wink she gave me when she finished her sentence sent chills up my spine.
Change was coming. I could feel it.
"Good morning Dante and Zero!" I ran towards the trio with much enthusiasm, perhaps a little bit too much as I nearly fell flat on my face, thank goodness Chiara caught me before I fell "Thank you Chiara" I felt a blush heat my cheeks.
"Bella you're such a klutz."
"Zero, be nice to Bella. It's too early to start now."
Zero just sighed and walked behind Dante toward the meeting room. Chiara and I followed behind the guys at a moderate pace. Once inside the grandeur room we took our usual seats and waited for Aro to begin. I shook a little bit form the chill that entered in the room. This room itself was kind of creepy. It was like a dark cathedral, except you'd expect demons to start crawling around the walls and the pictures to just come to life and grab your soul. The small light there was came from a few lit candles.
Chiara gently squeezed my hand and gave me that comforting sister smile.
I feigned a smile back at her. I hate this room.
Aro entered the room.
He took his usual seat, al the way at the front of the table, in a seat that would make a king envious.
"Ah! Zero, Chiara, Bella and Dante. Dante I am most surprised to see you here?"
"Good morning Aro. I want to ask permission to join today to join in the hunt against the rouges in Foggia. I know that place very well and I have a plan that might help in defeating the vampires quickly." Dante looked down at the table in wonder.
"I sense that there is more to what you say?"
"Yes, you see I felt….nostalgia when I heard about Foggia. Maybe there is something there which could help me with my memories in my previous life?"
"Well by all means go ahead. You hardly go out anyway and hopefully all of you could get some color in your eyes." Aro laughed at his won joke, everyone else laughed but me.
Aro raised his pale hand and the laughing stopped abruptly.
"Alright on to business. Now these rouge vampires do not seem easy to deal with. They have killed some hundred people so far and are continuing to hunt. They are causing an upheaval in the city and we are closer to being exposed. Now I'm going to keep it a small group so Demetri shall not attend in the hunt." My eyes quickly went wide as I mentally gasped.
Demetri? Not coming with us? This was my-our chance at freedom! That wink that Chiara gave me. They knew? They all knew all along and were planning. Dante was planning something-our escape.
"I expect you all here back and alive in three days time. Take extra precautions with my precious little Bella."
"Yes Aro!" we all said in unison.
"That would be all. Please be safe, I do consider you all as my family."
Aro left in a blur. Dante and Zero rushed off somewhere and Chiara stayed behind with me, dragging me towards somewhere.
"Where are we going Chiara?"
"To the garage." She replied without looking at me.
"What about my clothes?"
"I already packed them while you were bathing. Your clothing is in the car. Don't worry, everything is going to be fine, trust me."
When we reached the garage Dante and Zero were already in the black car with the tinted windows. This was one of the many cars that Aro gave to us. Chiara quickly pushed me in the car and followed suit.
"Do you have everything?" Dante asked from the passenger's seat.
"Yes. Go Zero!" I've never heard Chiara talk in such a forceful voice.
Zero pushed the car to its limits. Everything we passed was a blur. I remember when Zero's driving used to scare me. He would go up to speeds that would make a professional racecar driver sick, but I got used to it and anything slower than 240 seemed like a turtle's pace to me.
"Dante can you please re-load my gun for me?" he pulled his gun from his holster and handed it to Dante when Dante took the gun Zero reached in his jacket pocket for his bullets, all without looking away form the road.
"Of course Zero." Dante took the weapon from his hand.
Zero's gun was not just an ordinary gun. Well the bullets weren't anyway. The bullets were hand made by Dante and me. The bullets were small and thin but hard enough to pierce through a vampire's skin and shock it for a while with the magic spell I placed on the bullets.
The trip to Foggia would be a long one but with the speed we were going we would probably make it there by tomorrow afternoon.
The trip was awkwardly quiet but comfortable. I was hoping that Dante had some sort of fool proof escape plan and that it would work. It just might work, maybe.
We made it by nightfall.
Zero parked the car in the middle of the woods and turned off the headlights.
Dante spoke without looking at us "Okay everyone here's the plan. We find those vampires and kill them. Once Zero and I burn the vampires Chiara will prepare the field so that it would look like we all perished in the fight against them. There's another car some miles from here so when the fire starts to burn everyone must follow me. Bella you will burn the corpses and stay close to us, as close as you possible can, after that make a deep gash on your wrist and spread your blood around and then make a small shield around us to hide our scents, then we will all escape, do you understand me?"
I nodded my head.
"Good. Now, whether we make it or not, Godspeed for everyone. Pray that we make it out together and alive."
"Dante! You know we will! We can do it, together! We're a family."
"Thank you Chiara. Now I've picked out a place for us to live in, it's in another continent. We're moving to North America, Forks, Washington to be exact, I have a confidant there named Carlisle. He can shelter us for a while until we can mange on our own. Everyone good luck." Dante was the first to leave the car and head to the trunk, probably to get his sword.
Dante's sword was really fine and thin. Dante said he vaguely remembers where he got it from but he couldn't bear to be away from it.
It was extremely sharp and always shined even when it pierced through a vampire or anything else. In a way, it sort of reminded me of him.
"Bella, when you leave the car quickly change into your true form okay?" I nodded at her orders.
Once I exited the car I immediately changed into my true form.
Her hair is in a complex design with many loose curls.
My outfit is primarily magenta, with tangerine-yellow frilly trimming, pink, translucent above-the-elbow gloves, and light yellow, ample wings which appear rectangular with bejeweled speckles of purple. I'm wearing a skirt which is puffy and separated into diamonds. Instead of shoes I now wear gold barefoot sandals with the gold straps delicately wrapping up and around my leg.
I caught up with the others and followed them deep into the woods.
Zero lead us, as usual, and sniffed the environment.
"Bella can you hide your scent for a while?"
"Much better." Zero continued sniffing the ground and trees. They were here not to long ago. My instincts say to keep walking forward."
We followed Zero into a remote meadow. Everything seemed calm to me but Chiara, Dante and Zero were all growling and forming a wide triangle around me.
"Alright Bella, spread your scent and get prepared to do your stuff."
Following Zero's orders I made sure that the entire area was drowning in my scent. Dante had always said that my blood was the most potent thing he ever smelled.
I returned to the triangle and stood still.
I counted the minuets in my head as I waited.
In the peripheral of my eye I saw a blur in the tall grass. I stood my ground and so did the others.
I looked up at the moon in the sky. Ah, I new moon, how appropriate. There were huge dark clouds that were slowly floating, soon to cover the light of the moon.
The rouges were going to attack as soon as the clouds covered the moon. A good tactic but not one which we haven't experienced. All three of them crouched into a pouncing position, hiding underneath the grass. I continued counting.
The darkness covered the field.
Everything was quiet. No wind, no nothing. Not even the sound of the bugs or the nocturnal animals. Suddenly A loud roar was heard.
Zero was the first to attack shooting his gun at the vampire, knocking it off balance in the air. Dante attacked next quickly slicing the creature to pieces and putting it into a neat pile.
Another vampire came up behind me, Chiara was fast and jumped towards it and ripped its head off throwing it toward the pile as well as the rest of the body.
We fought off a couple more vampires and quickly ripped them all apart.
"Bella! Burn the corpses now!"
My arms raised above my head, with my palms faced up a small glowing ball formed above my palms. I let out a loud yell and released the ball toward the pile.
It quickly burned. A dark and ominous smoke was formed form the corpses. The smell was indistinguishable. After so many years of doing this, one gets used to it.
I stared at the fire.
"Bella! Your blood?!"
Dante came next to me and quickly made a deep gash on my wrist.
I let the blood spill in some areas. Chiara and Zero ran back to us.
"I'm going to make the shield now!" A transparent purple bubble formed around us, as soon as I was sure that we were all covered I gave them a nod to let them know I was ready.
We made it to the other car. I changed into my normal form and quickly entered in the car. Zero drove the car as fast as it could to the nearest airport. The digital clock on the dashboard read a half-hour past twelve so we still had plenty of time before morning.
My eyes were alert. I kept looking back checking to see if anyone in a familiar car or black robe was following behind us.
I jumped when I felt Chiara's hand touch my arm. She pulled me close to her and rubbed my arm like I was a child.
"It's going to be okay Aria" she said in a comforting voice "we'll make it you'll see."
I wanted to fall asleep but I couldn't not while we were still here.
Soon we made to the airport. Dante had forged some passports for us all, luckily the guy who checked them was tired to he took the passports without a second glance. We took the first plane to Seattle. Once we got in the plane I felt a little bit better. Of course Dante had gotten us first place seats so the comfortable seats were very soft, almost making me go to sleep. I couldn't. We were still close, what if they decided to bring down the plane?
I didn't get any sleep during the ride.
After some hours we made it to our destination. The plane touched the ground and my heart soared.
Chiara, who pretended to sleep next to me during the ride, held me around my waist and lightly lifted off my feet so it still looked like I was walking in the crowd.
When we got to the terminal I started to breath heavily.
"We made it?" I said so low that I almost couldn't hear myself talk.
"Yes Aria. We're here. We made it."
Chiara's face was the last image I saw before I fainted into the welcoming darkness.
