My name isnt stepheinie, and i dont own twilight. if i did, id be rubbing it in your face!
I walked into the living room, my first time coming of my room in days. I didn't want my family to see me, the miserable ball that I had become. It pained Jasper to be near me, and the look on Alice's face just hurt too much.
They had tried everything to make me "alive" again; to make me forget.
But how could I forget Bella?
My beautiful angel, the light in my darkness, and the diamond in my dirt.
She was gone. Forever.
I had become a recluse. Curling up in my own self-pity and depression day and night.
I had stopped going to high school with my sibling. Every girl reminded me of her.
I had stopped talking to my family. I had tried to stop reading their minds. My world was just dark, with no light, and the buzzing of other people's thoughts in the background.
Eventually my family has given up on me. Esme stopped smiling, Emmet forgot his sense of humor, and Jasper was always trying desperately to send at least some happy vibes to me. Alice had stopped shopping, because it reminded her of Bella. She had stopped being happy, stopped being excited Alice. I couldn't look at her anymore, because of the hate I would see in her topaz eyes. Even though she never said it, inside she hated me. I hated myself.
Even Rosalie had been down lately, after she finally realized that we weren't just acting like we missed "the human", after a while she knew that our family would never go back to the way it used to be, and she quit complaining about being bored.
When I walked into the living room, six pairs of coal black eyes looked up at me.
Edward…? He actually listened to me?(Carlisle)
When will they stop being like this? I can't take it anymore!(Emmet)
Our family, our happiness; what happened?(Esme)
How could one little girl cause so much pain?(Rosalie)
He looks so depressed…maybe I should try to…(Jasper)
Don't think about it! Don't think about it Alice! (Alice)
"You called?" I asked, my head towards Carlisle.
"Yes, Edward, we all need to have a little family meeting."
Now every one besides Esme looked at him questions in their thoughts.
Esme got off the single seat and sat next to Carlisle in the love-seat so I could sit down.
She held his hand before he continued.
"We all have been…a little down lately…" when he saw the look on my face, he quickly said, "for very good reasons. But we need a break from all of this. It's destroying our family."
He looked at Esme who nodded.
"Aro reached me the other day."
The five of us raised our eyebrows at him. Esme just looked at Carlisle, willing him to go on.
"He wants us to come visit. He really wanted to see us."
Rosalie looked like she was about to say something when Esme started talking.
"I think it's a good idea. We need different surroundings. Well have time to catch up with the Volturi, and you guys can explore Italy, its beautiful in the spring."
Rosalie, Jasper and Emmet nodded. Alice just shrugged.
They all turned to look at me.
"I'll go pack," I said reluctantly, and got off the chair, my siblings following.
We arrived in Volterra two days later. We walked into the same building I had gone into, all those years ago, with Bella.
Bella. So many painful memories were here, why did I even agree to come?
I looked over at Alice, and I could tell she was in pain like me, Jasper must have sensed this because I felt a warm wave of calm spread through me.
We followed Felix into a hall where the lights were shut off, the drapes shut over the windows. It was completely dark, and I found comfort with the darkness.
He stopped at a door I could just barley make out and open it. We walked into a room that was dimly lit by a single window. Against one wall was a big black leather chair, and on the other there was a long rectangular leather L-shaped couch with little red cushions on it, facing the chair. One wall had a huge maroon curtain covering the whole thing, and there was a big golden rope at the side where you would pull them apart. On the other side of the room there was a huge plasma T.V covering most of the wall, next to it was a wooden door, which was closed.
Felix motioned for us to sit down on the white sofa, and we did.
He left without saying anything and Aro walked in, with two bodyguards at his sides, he smiled when he saw Carlisle and sat down in the black chair. He waved a hand and the two bodyguards walked away.
"Carlisle! And the whole family! What a pleasure!"
Esme and Carlisle smiled at him and he smiled even wider.
"The pleasure is ours my friend."
"No, no, I feel so blessed with all of you here. What a beautiful family you have." His eyes swept over us and stopped at me.
"How have you been Edward? The last time we met you were very happy to leave."
I shrugged, and continued looking at the floor.
"You all seem…unhappy, especially Edward."
Esme smiled weakly at him. "We've just had some…problems."
Aro clapped his hands together. "Well! Then I know just the thing that will cheer you all up!"
We all just sat there staring at him. I could hear my sibling's sarcastic thoughts, and Carlisle and Esme just felt badly because they knew Aro's attempt to make us happy would fail, and he would be disappointed.
But he just blinked at us, and turned to me.
"Edward, why don't you do it since it'll be the most important to you."
I raised one eyebrow at him.
"If you just follow what I say, you'll see what I mean."
"O.K," I said to him, wanting to just get this over with.
"The curtain over there, walk over to it for me."
I could hear the questioning in every ones thoughts, and now I was half curious myself. I got off the sofa and walked over to the curtain, staring at it.
"Pull the rope please, if you will Edward."
I pulled down on the thick golden rope and the curtains drifted apart with a soft swoosh.
Behind them was a picture, it was framed silver and covered the whole wall. It was of a portrait of a girl, a very beautiful girl, she had brown hair, that was pulled away from her breathtaking face, her head was angled towards the camera and I felt like she was looking directly at me. Her hair fell in shiny silk like curls around her. Her eyelashes were thick, and her cheeks were a soft pink, her soft full lips in a tiny smile. Her eyes were the most amazing thing about her though, big brown, like pools of chocolate, and even though she was smiling, they were sad. She was easily the most beautiful person I had ever seen. It almost hurt to look at her.
I stared at the picture for god knows how long, and then Aro said something that made every muscle in my stone hard body hurt.
My lungs were burning, and my heart hurt like I was going to explode. I said the word that I hadn't said in years.
"Bella." I whispered.
