A/N: Hello my readers...Thank you all for the reviews. I read and love every single one so thank you! And sorry for the lack of updates I've been major busy for the last couple of months so I haven't had time to focus on this chapter, but I managed it! So here you go here is the chapter.
P.S. There will be P.O.V changes in this chapter. It saves doing a whole chapter separately when I can do it in this one. And it helps to know what's going on at the same time somewhere else. So I hope you don't mind it. Thank you and Enjoy
'All I Wanted Was You'
'Chapter 27: Confusion'
"You're not gonna win short stuff" he stated with a smirk on his face,
"Oh really? Why is that?" I asked sending back my own branded smirk.
"Well for the simple fact that I am more trained in this area than you are" he replied and I kept the smirk on my face, not wanting to seem like I was put off by his words,
"Is that so?" I asked and he nodded smugly,
"Okay then, enough talk, are you ready?" I asked squinting at him,
"Definitely" he replied and then charged for me, but me being the amazing psychic that I am, I dodged it and hit him three times sending him flying backwards into a wall where he stayed
"Dammit Alice!" Emmett bellowed from beside me, I simply laughed and placed the Xbox controller on the coffee table,
"Sorry Emmett, I can't help it if I am better than you at this, what happened to 'I am more trained in this area than you are'?"I said in a playful tone and he just glared at me,
"You cheated!" he shouted and I threw my hands up in the air,
"Well I did warn you before we started as I do before every time we do this, but nope, you wanted to play against the psychic" I grinned and he smiled back,
"Whatever, I will beat you one day" he said and I patted him on the back patronisingly,
"Sure you will em, sure you will" I laughed and he grabbed me in a headlock before I could dodge it. I laughed as I tried to release myself from his hold,
"Now, Now you two, you remember what happened last time you did this, I don't want to have to replace another coffee table, I happen to like this one" Esme scolded as she walked out from the kitchen. Me and Em laughed and he finally released me,
"Not my fault Emmett is a sore loser" I stated and he punched my arm playfully. Then he turned to Esme,
"Yeah yeah short stuff. Do you know where everyone else is Esme? I need to play against someone other than this little cheating demon" he said with a grin looking at me and I just mock laughed and stuck my tongue out.
"Well Rosalie has gone hunting, I think she said something about watching Alice beat you all the time was getting boring" she said with a laugh, and I giggled,
"That never gets boring" I chuckled and he picked one of the pillows up off the couch and threw it at me. But I let it hit me. Maybe it might make him feel better.
"Carlisle is as you know at work and Jasper, Edward, Rebecca and David have gone out for sparring practice at David's request" she stated and I sighed as Esme finished her sentence and walked up the stairs towards her room.
There should be one more name on that list. And here it comes. The loneliness was starting to creep back into my system. Every now and then I would feel it. The loss of Bella's presence did this to me often. I shook it off and looked over at Emmett who gave me a sympathetic smile. I tried as best as I could to send one back to let him know I was okay.
"Have you checked on her?" he asked and I nodded sadly,
"Yes, but she's blocking me now, she doesn't want me seeing the fight, just in case anything...happens" I said and I soon felt Emmett surround me in his arms,
"Can you tell that she's blocking it?" he asked and I leaned my head on his shoulder and sighed,
"It's like a wall, like my mind reaches out and gets stopped. We practised it a lot before she went, she said it was because she liked to be spontaneous and surprise me every now and then" I smiled at the memory, and I watched him nod,
"She'll be okay Alice, don't worry, just have hope, okay?" he reassured quietly and I was so relieved to have him here at the moment.
"Okay, I'll try" I whispered back to him before he drew back his arms and slapped his hands on his knees,
"Right, well...I'm gonna play another round on the Xbox, wanna join? I promise I wont be a sore loser if I do lose" he said while smirking at me and I chuckled as I moved to stand up,
"You mean when you lose" I replied and he pouted making me laugh more,
"Meany...so do you want to?" he asked and I shook my head,
"No thanks, I think I'm just gonna go relax outside for a while" I answered and he nodded simply,
"Okay short stuff, you know I'm always here to talk to right?" he asked and I nodded with a smile,
"I know, and thank you, I don't know what I would do if I didn't have all of you" I stated as I pulled back from the embrace. I stood up with a smile and headed for the front door, sending a smile to Emmett as he reached for Xbox controller.
Right, positive...I have to be positive. Bella wouldn't want me to be upset and there is no way in hell I'm going to let myself get all broody like Edward...No offence to my brother, but no wonder Bella used to get aggravated with him.
But I wonder if this is how Bella felt...When we left. Not knowing whether we would see each other again?
Okay this whole staying positive thing is harder I thought...But everything I do is a constant reminder of Bella. And I can't wait for her get home just so I can just kick her ass for leaving me.
I walked up to a tree and began to climb it's branches until I was at the very top before sitting down, making myself comfortable. I glanced at the snow covered hills that were in front of me. I couldn't decide whether I like this place more than Forks but it was very quiet here, and I found it to my delight, to be very peaceful.
Well it was until I heard one of the branches move beside me and the person scent made itself known.
"To what do I owe this visit Rebecca?" I asked looking at the wary brunette beside me, she smiled at me and sat down,
"Thought you might have wanted some company" she said and I sent her a smile and nodded
"Yeah that might actually be nice" I replied before focusing my gaze back onto the white landscape in front of me.
While Bella had been away I managed to find a common ground with Rebecca. After the little stunt she pulled with Bella and David, I was dead set against liking her. But she's been getting better lately and I don't mind her so much. Let's just hope it stays that way. But I know full well that Bella was still dubious about her.
"So how you holding up?" She asked softly as she pulled a twig from one of the branches. I sighed and leaned back so that I was leaning against the tree.
"Well I haven't spiralled into a depression, so that's a good sign" I stated and Rebecca laughed lightly from beside me,
"Yeah I guess, but don't worry she'll be back. It's a shame I never really got to know Bella before she went, I just hope me and David are still here when she gets back, although I doubt she will want to have anything to do with me with me" she shared with a laugh, and I just decided to play dumb with her,
"Why would she?" I asked, and she just smiled and chucked away the twig she had inspected ,
"Well I have a feeling that Bella didn't like me being around you all too much, be it jealousy of course" she stated and I blinked, okay now I actually am confused. Was she jealous? She never mentioned it or anything,
"But why? She had no reason to be, I mean I didn't do anything..."
"Oh no...Don't worry, it's not your fault, the blame goes to me this time" she said and I gave her a questioning look,
"What do you mean?" I asked and Rebecca rubbed the back of her neck nervously,
"Well, I think she figured out that I had a tiny crush on you when we first arrived here" she said not looking at me, while I stared wide-eyed at her. She had a crush on me? I didn't even know she liked girls. Crap, Bella must have been pissed when I was around her. Now that I think about it she did go quiet a lot when I talked to her.
"Oh Rebecca...I'm sorry..." I said sadly looking at her but she turned to me with a smile,
"Hey, you have nothing to be sorry for, and don't worry, I got over it about five months ago, but it's me that should be sorry, I didn't really behave nicely while she was here, like trying to get your attention off her and what happened with David, so I'm sorry for that" she explained and I was still in a shocked state from learning all of this new information.
"Are you okay?" She asked me with a worried glance and I looked away and nodded slowly,
"Yeah, just a lot to take in, you know?" I stated, not really knowing how to react,
"Look I still wanna be your friend, and Bella's, if she lets me, so lets just forget about the rest okay?" she asked me and I pushed away the shock from my face and smiled to her before nodding,
"Sounds perfect to me" I said with a smile, and she sent one straight back,
"Good...well, changing the subject for now and forever, your brothers and mine went back to the house, they said something about watching a few movies, you in?" she asked as she stood up, balancing on the branch,
Hmm watching some movies might take my mind off things for a while...
"Yeah, sure, why not" I stated as she smiled and began jumping down the tree. I sighed and took one last look into the future to see if Bella was okay. I closed my eyes and focused, usually Bella's ability would have stopped me by now, so I got slightly hopeful that I would be about to see her...but there was nothing. Just a blank..like there was no future to look at. Why couldn't I see her? It's different from when she stops me.
I pulled myself out of the vision with a deep breath. Something is wrong. I jumped out of the tree and on to the floor when Rebecca was waiting with a worried look on her face as she glanced at me,
"I need to get home now! Somethings wrong. Something has happened to Bella" I shouted, running full speed back to the house.
Pain...That is the only thing that comes to mind at the moment, that and the fact that I can't open my eyes, and if I try to open them, it brings me back to the whole pain situation. But I need to open them...here goes..
I fluttered my eyes, getting them used to the light, or lack of, there was actually no light at all. I looked around taking in my surroundings as I pushed myself up off the ground so I could move but I soon found out as I pulled my arms slightly that my arms were restricted by some kind of chains...what the hell?
I pulled them roughly trying to free myself but to no avail. How strong are these things, how are they not breaking? And what the hell happened to me? All I remember is getting to the village and fighting...and then I went to help...Hayley, but It wasn't her...It was...
That son of a bitch!
He had one of his stooges do something to me. That's why I'm here. But what about Hayley and the rest, what's become of them?
I looked around to what seemed to be some sort of cell. Great. First I'm stuck with the Volturi, now these.
I need to get out of here, I need to find Hayley.
"Well it seems our little prisoner is awake" I heard a voice say as I looked up to see a smirking at me, I growled and stood up lunging at him, but I was violently yanked back by the chains.
"Oh yes, you wont be able to brake them I'm afraid, they've been modified to hold our kind, as you can see they are very useful" he finished and I growled and crouched down still standing my ground.
"You two are indeed little firecrackers, I can see why Aro desired you both" he mused placing his arms behind his back and sat on a wooden box that was near the door.
Wait did he say two? Who else? Wait...
I hissed at him from my place on the floor,
"Where's Hayley?" I growled out and he raised his eyebrows,
"So that is the girls name...she looks like the 'Alexandra' type" he mumbled with a laugh and I hissed at him,
"You better not of hurt her..."
"Oh don't be so dramatic Isabella, I have no interest in hurting your little friend" he chimed in, but in no way did I believe him.
"I want to see her.." I demanded and he just smiled. Which made me loose my temper even more,
"I assure you she's safe Isa-"
"that's not what I asked...I want to see her...Now!" I demanded, louder than before. It was then that I felt a hand wrap around my throat and I was thrown back against the wall, being pinned to it by Jason as he glared into my eyes. I was too weak to fight back, so I succumb to the motion.
"You are in no place to make demands of me Isabella, it would be wise to remember your current position" he spat before he released me, resulting in my body falling to the floor, my hand reflexly going to my neck.
I watched as Jason walked back over to the door and stepped out of it, calling over someone with a motion of his hand.
Not a second later was there a man holding a figure over his shoulder, once the scent lifted to my nose, I let out an soft gasp.
"Hayley..." I shouted which echoed around the tiny room.
The man dropped her on the floor near me harshly and I growled in warning to him. He didn't react to my threat, he just attached Hayley's hands to a pair of chains and then backed up, glancing at Jason before walking out.
I crawled over to Hayley's form and watched as she appeared to be sleeping, or what would look like a deceased to the human eye.
"It's amazing what some powers will do to our kind, If done to a human they would be dead. But to us..they give us the opportunity to do something we are denied" he murmured from the corner of the room and I looked up to him, gritting my teeth.
"Why her?...why me?" I asked softly as I looked down at her.
"Well the reason you're here...we will get to that in a little while, but the young one wasn't part of anything I had planned. But she was adamant about protecting you, so I brought her here. I could have left her there If I chose to but I admired her loyalty, she might be of use to me" he stated and I growled at him,
"Over my dead body" I stated, clichéd I know but I don't really care. He simply just laughed as he walked toward the door.
"Well that's just fine, because as soon as your turner touched their teeth into your neck, you were dead Isabella" he stated smugly.
"Now as to what I want with you...it's pretty simple actually, do you recall someone called Victoria?" he asked and I went wide eyed and I growled slightly at the mention of her name.
"From your reaction I assume that you do...well as your probably are not aware. Victoria was my Daughter of sorts...I created her and looked after her like my own. Well you see I heard about your little coven a couple of decades ago, but I thought nothing of it, until you came along that is, I heard that a human was living amongst our kind and their powers weren't working on her. I wanted to get the information for myself, so I sent a select few to scope out your area. That was until that James boy got too involved..." he stated rubbing his forehead...
At this new information I didn't know what to think...James,Victoria and Laurant... they were sent to watch me?
"That boy was always trouble, I never wanted my Daughter to have anything to do with him in the first place, but she also was strong willed. So I sent along another man along with them just to watch over the whole thing" he stated and I growled..
"Laurant" I stated and his eyebrows lifted,
"Oh so you knew that one aswell, well it is a shame what happened to him also but, there is no gain with no sacrifice" he stated as if it meant nothing to him, it sickened me, I didn't like Laurant for what he did, but the coldness of this man to just brush of his death like nothing. That was a true monster.
"Well..anyway, yes that boy James ruined it all by getting too involved by chasing you down, and to be quite honest I was thrilled to hear that he had been disposed of, but sadly my Daughter did not as you well know. And this leads me to what I want you for" he stated, and I scowled at him, waiting for him to reveal whatever it was he planned,
"Now what kind of Father would I be if I didn't avenge my Daughters death, so I will just simply finish what my Daughter had started, by killing you, the Cullen's will know what it feels like to lose a family member" he affirmed and I growled at him,
"She deserved it for what she did, she's the reason I am this way, my family were only protecting me" I growled out, but he just laughed,
"Family? Well Carlisle seems have the whole family value thing set up just fine doesn't he?" he said as she continued to laugh. Did he know Carlisle? I didn't even get the chance to ask before he started rambling on again,
"Nevertheless Isabella, I still will not leave it be. I will get what I want, with or without you and your little friend, so do not push me" he said before walking towards the door,
"Sit tight Isabella" he whispered before walking out of the door leaving me looking at the wooden door.
Why does everyone hate my family? Because they are good people. Because they do not wish to be monsters and they protect the people they love.
I would not let him get my family. Including Hayley...speaking of Hayley,
"Hay...Hayley" I shouted loudly trying to wake her. I tilted her hair and brushed her brown hair out of her face, I tapped it lightly at first but getting harder gradually,
"Come on Hay, wake up" I said as I looked at her. Eventually I gave up. And just sat back but cradling her head in my lap. Waiting until she became conscious.
I just sat there for what was maybe an hour, I'm not too sure. I just sat there waiting for her to wake up but there was nothing, it was silent. But eventually Sleeping Beauty started to shift and wake, thankfully without the kiss. She moved slightly and then tried to open her eyes.
"Ugh I feel like I've got the worlds worst hang over" She stated and I chuckled softly,
"How do you even know what that feels like, we can't get drunk" I stated and she looked at me trying to give me a look but couldn't because of her pain,
"Come on Bella I was a teenager when I was changed. Lets just say I wasn't a good girl" she answered and I laughed, she tried to copy me but winced, and I frowned.
"Don't worry the pain wares off after a while" I tried to reassure her and she smiled,
"Thank god cause I feel horrible" she murmured before taking in her surroundings, "Where are we Bella?" she asked me and I sighed in aggravation,
"Jason...He used one of his men to knock us out and then brought us here. He told me why. I will tell you later, but for now I'm trying to think of a way out of here" I replied and she nodded before pulling on her chains,
"Well I don't think it's gonna be easy with these things" she commented and I nodded and looked around trying to see if there was anything. But before I could find anything we heard voices outside the door.
"Jason wishes for you to patrol the front of the village" I heard a male voice say to who I'm assuming was guarding the door. So we were in some kind of village? Me and Hayley looked at each other and then listened out for the rest of the conversation,
"But we were told to stay here" one of the guards replied to the male, and then there was a female voice,
"Yes we are here to take your position, do not worry, we are staying here to guard them" the female assured them and then we heard footsteps fading, which I assumed was the other guards leaving. I gave Hayley and she shrugged as we watched the rooms door open to reveal a male and female that looked familiar. Wait I remember them, the girl...she's an...
"You're the Empath... and the man that was with her earlier... before the fight" I commented and Hayley looked at me and them to them. Her face trying to remember the events that had passed. The female nodded to me as stood there,
"Call me Lucia, and this is Mark...we don't have long, we need to hurry" she explained before rushing towards each of us. Mark came towards me and I reflexly backed up,
"Woah, hurry for what exactly?" I heard Hayley asked and I nodded as to agree with her.
"To get these chains off" Mark answered and he bent beside me and used something that looked like some sort of cutting tool. But not any that I have seen before on the chains, making them snap as if they were chicken wire. I gaped at them and then I looked to both of them,
"Why?" I asked and they smiled at us,
"Because we're getting you out" Lucia stated simply and I went wide eyed.
