I'm back! Did you miss me? (Don't answer that(: ) So, this chapter has an even HIGHER unnecessary drama quota than Chapter Twelve. So…here goes!

"JaneI'?" asked Alec in one breath.

Jane frowned and set her book down. "What?"

Alec took another deep breath and asked, more slowly this time, "I'm going to save Maddelena. I don't know where she went, but I think I can do it. Will you come with me?"

"Who else is going?"

"I don't know."

Jane sighed and rolled her eyes up to the ceiling. "Has Aro given permission for this trip?"

"No. Something about Maddelena being their property or something."

"You said something twice in the same sentence."


Jane sighed again. "Fine.

"Felix, Alec has this ridiculous idea to go save Maddelena even though he has no idea where she is and Aro hasn't given his permission and-"

"Will there be any fighting?"

Once again, Jane sighed, thinking, Why are all men so stupid? "Probably. We'll have to fight that stupid man, but I think the women will be easy enough to convince to let her go…they might even join our ranks."

Felix grinned. "Count me in."

"Hey, Demetri, we need a tracker to go find Maddelena because Alec's got some sort of infatuation with her or something…"

"Like you have with Jane?"

"Shut up. Anyway, we'll be fighting a lot…"

"Sure. I'll go."

"Okay, Alec, we've got me, you, Felix, and Demetri, get out of this corner."

Alec was indeed curled up in the fetal position in the darkest corner of the lobby. Emiliana, the human receptionist, was looking at him curiously.

Alec looked up; his face was as dark as a rain cloud. "Really? Now we can save her!"

Retarded ending, but yay! Alec be happy!
