A.N-Alright, this is Edward's P.O.V. They find out how to get back to St. Vlad's.
We all filed into the house and managed to find a place for everyone to sit. I had noticed that the bigger Moroi male, Dimitri, was always on the alert. Sometimes Rose would say or do something that would make him relax, or look at her with a sort of adoration. I also noticed that he seemed wary of everything and everyone, especially the Denalis. Then one of his thoughts hit me so hard that I couldn't hear anyone else or concentrate om anything else.
None of them had better hurt my Roza. I was so shocked that he thought and felt that. None of his actions indicated he did. Jasper was looking at him incredulously, so I knew Dimitri's emotions were intense. Carisle broke through my thoughts by asking Dimitri,
"How do you suppose you get home?" The guardian shook his head. "I have no idea." he confessed. Christian huffed and crossed his arms over his chest. He was sitting next to Lissa on the couch and said,
"It's all Rose's fault. You just had to fall down a hole, didn't you?" Rose, recognizing a challenge and a chance to verbally fight with Christian, argued,
"I did not! Lissa fell. Besides, you didn't have to come after, us you know." Then she smirked. "But you didn't come after us, did you, Christian? No you fell." Christian scowled. Then he thought of a comeback,
"Yeah, well, I wasn't the one to put the hole there in the first place, was I?"
"Neither did I!"
"You could have alerted a guardian."
"Like you would have if Lissa fell and you were the one who was there?"
"Because you're so sensible." I tuned them out, their spat was getting a tad annoying. I heard Nessie ask Lissa, "Are they always like that?" "Oh, yeah." All the while Dimitri was turning all the possible ways back home in his head. Then Rose turned away from her fight with Christian to exclaim,
"I know how we get out of here!" We all turned to her. She was obviously excited about this idea. I tried to see what it was, but she blocked it. It must be incredibly hard to about to explain an idea while trying not to think about it.
"Well, we fell down a hole, right? Well, if that's right, then there must a hole in the spot we fell in, right? So if we could get up there, and climb back in, then we'll be back at St. Vlad's! It's worth a shot, right?" We thought about this. The more I looked at it, the more it made sense. I was wondering how Rose could think of it while thinking up come-backs to what Christian threw at her when I heard Dimitri's thoughts once more,
That's my Roza. So young, but more mature then guardian's twice her age. I'm so glad she has potential. Otherwise, Kirova would never had let me work with her. My Roza. I was so surprised at the emotion, the truth in his thoughts. It was true, Rose seemed so mature, so alert, but so care-free at the same time. She and Lissa stood up, along with Christian.
"Well , then what are we waiting for? Let's go!" And they were out the door. Dimitir soon followed, muttering something about how teenagers are so eager to do something, even if it's risky.
In the woods...
We ran toward the clearing where we first fell into. After some time, Edward suddenly reached for Lissa and swung her on his back. Dimitri and I were on him in a flash but just like that he on top of a tree. There was an annoyed look on his face but a twinkle in his eyes.
"Relax, I'm not going to hurt her. But you go to slow. So get on someone's back and we'll get there quicker." We stared at him. No way in fri**ing h**l was I getting on one of their backs. No way. I could tell Dimitri and Christian were thinkingthe same thing, but I also heard Lissa think it was a good idea. I stared at her like she was crazy. She rolled her eyes. She was still on Edward's back and glared at us.
"Liss, you can't be serious." She still glared and said,
"Do it." Suddenly I felt like I needed to do what she said. I looked over at Dimitri and Christian and saw they had a far-away look in their eyes. Then I snapped out of it. I looked at Lissa, shocked.
"Lissa, you do not just use compulsion on us!" She rolled her eyes again. "Just do it, Rose. How bad could it be?" She didn't use compulsion this time, but we consented. Dimitri got on Emmett's back, as he was the only one who was better situated with him. Christian got on Jasper's back and I got on Esme's. Before we took off, Bella said that if we got sick easy, it would be better to close our eyes.
And then we were off. The speed was amazing, I could see why the others were annoyed to be reduced to our speed when they could go so much faster. Before I knew it, we were in the clearing and Esme was gently letting me off her back.
When Edward let Lissa off, Bella jumped on his back playfully and said,
"I thought I was your only passenger." She said teasingly. Passenger? Why would she need to ride on his back if she could travel at the same speed? Oh well. It was no business of mine. Edward smiled at her and answered,
"If you like, you could ride on my back, for old times sake." She laughed.
"Nah, I enjoy being able to run at your pace without getting sick." The Cullens and Denalis laughed at that. I looked up and exclaimed, "I found it! The hole!" Everyone looked where I was and saw it, too. There was a big, gaping, hole in the middle of the bright blue sky. Suddenly I was air-borne and at the top of the tree closest to the hole, courtesy of Emmett Cullen.
"What the h**l! What the heck do you think you're doing?!"
"Giving you a lift." He answered. And then I was through the hole, into the courtyard where it all began. One by one, the rest came. First Lissa, then Christian, then Dimitri. When he was through, the hole began closing. We quickly said a thank-you and a good-bye to the Cullens and Denalis and made our way back to the dorms, like nothing happened. But I knew that none of us would forget this experience, or the Cullens and Denalis. Even though we would never see them again, they would be life-long friends and always in our memory.
A.N-End of story. I know, it's pretty short, but I like leaving it this way.
