"Jane" I sighed looking up from my magazine, "Give it a rest, you've tried everyday for the past 71 years, it's not going to work"
Jane glared at me and tried again. I turned to Alec.
"Will you get her to quit it" I asked, he just shrugged, "Argh!" I stormed out the room, screaming my head off, "DAD!" I closed my eyes and took a deep breath. When I opened my eyes, Dad was stood in front of me, smiling. I growled at him. Felix ran up to him,
"Aro, we have a-" Dad waved his hand to silence him.
"Wait" he turned to me, "What's wrong Bella? Why are you causing this commotion?"
"Because" I explained through gritted teeth, "Jane won't stop trying to torture me!!"
"Ah, I see"
"Yes and it's doing my head in" I wined. Dad pulled me into a hug and calmed me.
"Why don't you go hunting?" he suggested.
"Will you come with me?"
"I wish I could I really do but I have a lot of business to get through. But I promise to spend all day tomorrow with you, it's going to be raining" I nodded and went to my room, "Get an Elk for me"
Yes, the Volturi now drink Animals blood, all thanks to me. You see, around 1943, a coven called the Denali's visited Dad, Uncle Caius and Uncle Marcus, and one called Kate explained how they hated hunting humans, so instead they hunt animals and that results in their eyes being gorgeous shades of gold's instead of bright red. I told Dad about it and said that from now on I would hunt Animals. Of course dad, being dad didn't like the idea. I went hunting animals anyway and Dad said he'd give it a try since I nagged him for months. I also think it's because of my eyes being a beautiful gold. When he came with me he was converted and ordered that everyone in Volterra drink Animal blood.
I quickly reached my room and changed into my hunting clothes and went to the garage. I quickly got in my blue Lamborghini Gallardo LP560, it purred to life and I floored it flying out of Volterra. I parked at the edge of the woods and went to hunt.
After my third Elk, I was full and headed home. I just changed out of my clothes and there was a knock on the door. I quickly slipped a dressing gown on and answered the door. There stood Demetri,
"We have guests, formal event we are to meet at 6:30pm in the foyer. You know the dress code" he walked away. I had just enough time to shower, so I did. Afterwards I slipped into a red satin halter neck dress. It was floor length so I put on black and red heels. I left my hair to cascade down my back and applied light make up and perfume. I placed the ring Dad gave me on the middle finger on my left hand. It was silver with a huge diamond; it had topaz and sapphire surrounding it. Dad liked me to wear it when we had guests round or on special occasions. Finally I put on my black cloak, hood up and I made my way to the foyer. I was met by three guards; we walked to the main hall. Dad and my uncles were waiting. I took my seat on Dad's right. He patted my ring and smiled at me, I returned it,
"Feeling better?" he whispered.
"Much" I replied
"Good" he patted my hand again and then talked to Caius on his left. I turned to Marcus on my right,
"Who are we greeting?" I asked.
"The Dolton Clan" he groaned
"Who are they?"
"Oh right you weren't with us before. We nicknamed them the Dotty Dolton Clan. What fun you'll have meeting them for the first time" he smirked and I hit him playfully. He chuckled and I sulked. The door opened and two guards followed by 3 males and 3 females entered. Dad rose and greeted them. A tall male brunette, known as Eric, stepped forward.
"Aro, good to see you again. May I introduce my coven? This is Jenny" he pointed to a curly haired female brunette, and continued down the line, "and that's Lauren and her mate Tyler," he pointed to blonde haired male and female, "and that's Mikey" he pointed to another, dirty blonde haired male, "and finally my mate Katie" he waved to a brunette, the prettiest of them all.
Dad continued the usual greeting and finished,
"Now a new edition to the Volturi, my biological daughter, Bella" he waved me forward and I rose and smiled.
"My gosh, biological?" Katie questioned
"Yes" Dad grinned smugly, "At the gathering all will be explained, it's where I shall introduce her properly"
"Does she have any powers?" Katie asked intrigued. I answered before Dad and a flash a smile at him; he chuckled silently along with Marcus and Caius.
"I have three; my first is the same as my Dad, I can read people with one touch except I only know facts, not feelings, thoughts, memories, ect. My second is my shield, I can protect objects or people, my shield is permantly on and it blocks all mind powers including my father's, it comes in very useful to protect my loved ones. Dad's also happy as I need less guard and am always safe. Lastly I can sense when someone is looking or coming for me, at the moment my Uncle Marcus is helping me develop it further. I'm trying to be able to tell where the person is" I didn't mention my extra sensitive hearing.
"Impressive" Katie smiled and I returned it, I like her, I concluded.
We continued talking until dawn and the whole coven with the exception of Eric and Katie, where doing my head in.
"How long are you staying?" I butted in and Marcus choked down a laugh miserable. I bit my lip.
"Unfortunately we plan to leave in an hour or so" Tyler answered my question.
"Aw, never mind" I smiled.
"You will come back in a month for our gathering though?" Dad asked.
"Of course, we wouldn't miss an opportunity to see you all" Mikey replied and then smiled what was supposed to be a seductive smile. I shuddered. EW! Dad saw me shudder.
"Are you okay?"
"Yes, but if you'll excuse I wish to change, as it is a new day" Dad nodded and I practically ran to my room. I stripped off and jumped into the shower. I got out and dressed in a navy blue circular necked vest, it flowed down to mid thigh. I slipped on a pair of jeans and black flats. I tied my hair up and returned with my cloak and ring on. They were all in the foyer saying there goodbyes, perfect timing!
"You're leaving! Goodbye to you all" I smiled. I walked over and hugged them all. When I came to Katie I whispered,
"Email me, soon"
"I will" she promised. I kissed her cheek, as a sign the Volturi only use for true friends or acquaintances. I also kissed Eric's cheek. As they walked out the door Mikey slipped a piece of paper into my hand. Once the door was closed I opened it. It was a phone number. I groaned and Marcus laughed as he read it over my shoulder,
"Aro, Cauis our little Bella's got a boyfriend!" he laughed and Dad and Caius joined in. I growled and Marcus joined them to laugh at my misfortune.
"Well the delightful Mikey certainly did seem taken with our Bella" Caius laughed. I stalked up to them all and pointed my finger in their faces,
"If you tell anyone or set anything up, I'll run away and disown you all!!" I threatened, "MAX! BEN!"
My two personal guards came running in, "Burn this!" I chucked the piece of paper at them and stormed out to the gardens. As I stormed off I heard Marcus laugh,
"Hey Felix, looks like you got competition!" I groaned and walked around for a while to calm myself. Jane was looking for me to try and hurt me, again! When will she understand that a shield means it shields a.k.a blocks powers. Stupid, Little witch. I went to the music room and sat at my black grand piano that sat in the middle of the room. I started to play, after a while I started to sing, Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again from the Phantom of the Opera.
Someone clapped and I turned around and saw Dad coming towards me.
"That was beautiful Bella" He kissed my forehead and sat on the bench next to me, "You should play at the gathering"
"Maybe" I shrugged, "Anyway when were you planning on telling me about the gathering?"
"We decided while you were hunting and I was going to tell you when you arrived home but then we had guests"
"Okay" I hugged him close and he stroked my hair
"Tomorrow you're going to get your dress with Heidi"
"Why?" I moaned
"Because I want you to look even more stunning when I introduce you, if that's at all possible"
"Fine" I sighed, we sat in a comfortable silence and every now an then Dad would play a simple tune, "Dad, do you want me to find a mate?" he stopped playing, looked down and smiled
"I want you to be happy Bella and if that means you have a mate then, yes."
"Thanks" I hugged him and he returned it.
