Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight. Just the plot of the fic.
I had a bad feeling about today. You know the feeling, where something feels off what you don't know what that feeling is? Well, that's the feeling. All day, I had that feeling that something bad was going to happen. Alice agreed with me, but neither of us knew what our bad feeling was or what to do about it. That is, until a few minutes before our unexpected guests were going to arrive.
"Carslie!". Said Alice from downstairs in the lounge room. Everyone heard the fright in her voice and we all ran down. I knew what she was going to say, I seen it too.
"What is it Alice?". Asked Carslie as he approached his daughter and placed his hand on her shoulder.
"The Volturi; They're here". Replied Alice. Esme gasped silently and Rosalie made her way over to me and held my hand. I squeezed her hand reassuring her that everything was going to be okay
"They're outside". I said as I made my way outside with the rest of my new family following. Just outside, we had seen Aro, Caius, Marcus and all the guards standing there, Aro, Caius and Marcus were smiling, or rather and evil smirk.
"Ahhh, the Cullen Family! Nice to see you again". Smiled Aro as we exited the house.
Stay close to me guys. I'm extending my shield to go around us. Jane is going to want to play. It's a pity that I don't play well with others, especially people like her, I thought silently to everyone. They all nodded their heads and stayed closer to me.
"Bella, how nice to see my daughter again! And what are you doing here?". Asked Marcus. I smiled.
"Oh as it seems, my sister happens to be a Cullen. Rosalie". I said smiled indicating towards Rosalie. Rosalie smiled fakely as she inched closer towards me, with Alice on my other side inching towards me as well.
"Oh". Said Marcus as he looked at Rosalie. I turned to Jane and seen her trying to shock my family. I laughed. Everyone looked at me confusedly.
"Jane, Jane, Jane. You should know, that you can never get past my shield". I said smiling at Jane who was glaring at me.
"Aro, what do we owe this pleasure?". Asked Carslie the mediator.
"Oh, can I not visit my niece and see how she's been?". Asked Aro.
"No, you can't, not without a hidden agenda". replied Edward as I heard Carslie talk to him gently, telling him to be calm.
"Bella, we want you to return with us back to Italy". Said Marcus glaring at Edward. I smiled lightly. I knew that was what they wanted. I felt the tension rise from all the Cullen's awaiting my response.
"I'm sorry, but I think not. Now that I've found my sister, I'm never letting her go. Nor am I leaving my new family". I replied smiling lightly. Jane glared. I glared at her and shocked her. Jane gasped.
"Girls, please stop fooling around". Said Aro staring at us carefully.
"Why do you want to stay here? These people aren't your family. We are your family. We found you and we brought you up. Come back with us Bella". Said Marcus holding out his hand. I smiled and stepped forward. Aro and Marcus smiled, whilst the Cullen's gasped.
"I have already given you my answer. I am staying here and I am going to get to know my sister more thoroughly and I am going to get to know my new family. I may however return to Italy on a holiday, but Forks is now my new home. Anywhere with the Cullen's is my new home". I said. Marcus looked at me lightly before nodding.
"Very well then, goodbye my daughter. We will so you soon". Said Marcus speaking for everyone as they left.
"Bells, I actually thought you were going to leave me". Said Rosalie as she hugged me. I smiled.
"Rosie, I'm not going to leave you just as I've found you". I said as I squeezed my sister. I then turned to Edward.
"Does that prove your theory?". I asked with a glare.
I was sitting in my room reading a book when Edward knocked on my door. I sighed and invited him in. Edward stood awkwardly beside my bed before he made his way over to me and sat on my bed.
"I'm sorry for judging you once again. I usually judge a book its cover. And I'm sorry for saying you would defend the volturi and not us". Said Edward. I smiled at him.
"It's fine, I would have done exactly the same thing". I replied. Edward smiled.
"So, what are you reading?". Asked Edward.
"Wuthering Heights, it's my favourite book". I replied with a smile.
"Oh cool". Said Edward. We sat there in silence, neither one of us knowing what to say.
"So, this is slightly awkward, so I'm just going to um, leave. Bye". I replied as I made my way out of my room, leaving Edward sitting there on my bed. I walked outside and over to the swing, sitting down and swinging my legs. It was a few minutes later before Esme joined me.
"Bells, are you okay?". Asked Esme as she sat on the other swing.
"Yeah, I think I am. I just wish Edward would learn to trust me". I replied as I kicked the ground.
"Oh Bella, he will learn to trust you, trust me. When he first came here, he was very reserved and he didn't trust anyone, but then Rosalie came along and she brought out some of the Edward we see today, but then when Emmett and Alice and Jasper joined, he pretty much stuck to himself, I think it was more to the fact that he felt out of place because he didn't have a partner, like the others". Said Esme.
"Oh". I replied.
"But that's changed, you've brought out a different side to Edward, a side we don't see often, but I can tell with the looks he's giving you, he will begin to trust you, he just needs some time". Continued Esme.
"Oh okay, thank you Esme". I replied smiling lightly. Esme laughed.
"Oh don't call me Esme, that makes me sound old!". Replied Esme.
"What would you like me to call you?". I asked confused.
"Mum". She replied.
"Um, okay then... mum". I replied as she wrapped her arms around me.
"Bells, you're a part of our family now, the Volturi just need to realise that, and this family doesn't like to be messed with, because this family sticks together".
