I sat there staring at the blank computer screen. Alice and I were suppose to go shopping today. We weren't though, Jasper had stolen her to go hunting. I understood that, Jasper needed someone there when he hunt...just in case. There was no one else home. Carlisle had a party for the hospital that he and Esme went to, Edward was probably off somewhere with Bella I still think she's crazy for wanting to become a vampire, and Emmett...well I wasn't exactly sure where he was. Not knowing where he was made me nervous. He was indestructible yes, but he always liked looking for trouble. It was weird for him to go somewhere on his own.
THUMP! Someone was downstairs. I got up from the blank computer to see who it was. It was dark down stairs that was weird, we rarely ever turned off the lights. I flicked them on, nothing, no one was down there. That's odd. I could have sworn I had- CRASH!-The kitchen.I slowly walked into the kitchen, our prop pots were littered over the floor.
"H-Hello?" I asked shakily. I really shouldn't be scared, I was a vampire for crying out loud! I could probably break this person into toothpicks.
"Why hello Rosalie" said a drawling voice behind me. I could recognize that voice anywhere. I hadn't heard it in such a long time. How could he still be alive? I watched him die, I killed him! I turned around slowly to see exactly who I had expected. Royce King, the Second.
"Royce? But...no...you're ..."
"Dead? Well it would appear not." He smiled that same smile he had on his face the night he had almost killed me, I wanted to vomit, but I couldn't being as I'm a vampire now. That's when I noticed it. His eyes were blood red...human blood red. Royce was a vampire. "Come now Rosalie is this anyway to treat your fiancé?" He asked smirking.
"You are not my fiancé. You are not anything to me. I have a husband and a family, they are 1,000 times better that anything you could have given me!" I said angrily. That was a bad idea, before I had time to react he was holding me by the neck at least a foot off the ground.
"If they're so great where are they now?" I didn't say anything, I didn't want Royce going after them too. "Ah, I see it's going to be like that Princess?" he said. "Well maybe we can get them to come to us. All of them hopefully, Carlisle, Esme, Jasper, Alice, Edward, and of course ... Emmett." He laughed at the last name. "Your precious Emmett. Tell me, what would he do if you just disappeared?" He asked laughing darkly again. I scowled at him.
"You're going to kidnap me?" I asked unbelieving.
"You don't think I could do it? No one is here except you and me." He jeered.
"Alice will see where you take me" I smiled confidently. He shook his head and smiled.
"I know how to get around your little friend's-"
"Fine, you sister's little visions." He smiled that nauseating smile again. I grimaced. "Don't worry We can leave them a note. How's this:" He pulled a slip of paper out of his pants pocket with one hand, holding me against the wall with the other. "Dear...Emmett" He was torturing me with this. "I have your Rose. Don't worry, you'll get back the ashes. Royce King the Second." He smiled at my grimace. Swiftly he picked me up around the waist and placed the note on the kitchen table. I assume he was going to run the whole way to wherever it was he was taking me but he stopped dead out side.
"Put her down"...Jasper!
"So much for knowing how to get around her visions" I said cheekily to Royce.
"I don't think I want to put her down." Royce said ignoring me. His grip on me tightened.
"You don't want to fight us!" Alice spat "I suggest you put her down now." Royce shook his head.
"Jasper maybe you should go get Emmett." Alice said relatively calmly. Jasper looked at her like she was crazy.
"I'm not leaving you here alone! I don't want you both kidnaped." He said. Royce started slowly walking toward the forest, I wanted to fight him but I didn't have any strength left in me, that was weird I hadn't fought him once but I was to tired to move.
"HEY! Where do you think you're going?" Alice started toward us in a run. Royce used his other arm to swipe at her and threw her clear across the yard, she stayed frozen there.
"ALICE!" both Jasper and I shouted, miraculously I had gotten my strength back and began to fight off his grip to try to get to Alice. Jasper was already at her side. The last thing I saw was Alice sitting up. Then I got tired again and Royce ran to where I no longer had view of the house.
"ROSE!" I screamed running toward where Royce had ran off with her. "Rose!" I shouted again it was useless, she was gone.
"Alice, we have to find Emmett, we have to tell him" Jasper said putting his hand on my shoulder. I could hear my broken tearless sobs.
"You have to tell Emmett what?" Said a voice from behind us, it was Emmett. How do we tell him this?
Jasper lead both of us inside. He sat me on the couch and Emmett in the chair opposite of us, he sat beside me. Emmett looked confused. He kept glancing toward the steps, probably expecting Rosalie to come down them. We sat in silence for a while, then it clicked.
"Where is she?" Emmett asked. That brought on another round of tearless sobs for me. Jasper rubbed my back while he explained what had happened to Emmett. Emmett sat there with a blank stair on his face for a minute. " No, you guys are lying, Rose get out here this isn't funny!" he shouted.
I got up and walked to the kitchen to be out of Emmett's way. You didn't want to be around when Emmett was mad. There was a small white piece of paper on the table I picked it up to read it. What I read made me scream and drop the paper which fluttered gently down to the floor. Jasper and Emmett came running into the room.
" what is it? What happened? " Jasper was at my side stroking my face. Emmett saw the note on the floor and bent over to pick it up. Jasper and I watched as he read it.
"What's going on?" Carlisle said running into the room closely followed by Esme. " We heard Alice scream, is everything okay?" He looked around, but Esme picked it up first.
" Where is Rosalie?" she asked curiously facing Emmett.
I read the letter for what had to be the millionth time. 'Don't worry, you'll get back the ashes' He was going to hurt Rosalie. I wanted to go after her. I wanted to find her and make sure she was okay. I wanted to kill him. No, I needed to kill him.
Everyone was in the kitchen trying to figure out how to find her. I was sitting here on the couch reading and re-reading this letter. I wanted to help them but I couldn't bring my self to face them, not now. I know it was stupid, the love of my...existence was kidnaped and most likely being tortured to death right now and all I could do is sit here. No, I was going to help. I got up and walked to the kitchen. Everyone got quiet when I entered the room.
"You okay Em?" Jasper asked. I shrugged and sat down in an empty seat.
"Okay then," Alice smiled encouragingly at me "I'll try to get a clear reading on where they are then Jasper, Edward... Emmett, and I will go to try and find her. Carlisle, Esme, and Bella will stay here to check if he calls...and to stay safe." she added after Edward glared at her.
"Edward, I don't want you to go." Bella began " He said ashes in the note" I cringed "that means he has a way to kill vampires!"
"I'll be fine Bella, I promise" He kissed her on the forehead sending a pang of jealousy through me.
"Well then, shall we get started?" Carlisle said looking around the table. Everyone nodded and Alice closed her eyes to check the future.
