Bella knew that when Edward left he was only doing it for her soul. He always told her that he wanted her to have a chance at normal. But to her spending time with Edward was normal. Bella is now set out to Italy. She remembers Carlisle telling her that he was part of the clan, so she figures if she goes and begs they may tell her where Edward and the Cullens may be. Bella will use her past knowledge and conversations of the immortal world to try and find her love. Will she make it out of Italy alive and find her Edward or will she be summoned to live with the Volturi forever and will they make her become one of them?


I knew when he said he didn't love me or want me for that matter, it was all a lie. I knew he always worried about my safety. But I knew how to take care of myself. I could at least find my way to Italy and beg and plead for them to track him down. It was now or never, it was a life or death situation. If I didn't find Edward I would die from the lonely nights and eventually jump the cliff in hopes to be suicidal. Life without Edward is pointless. It's kind of like the Moon and tides. In order for the tides to come to shore you would need the moons gravity. Well in order for me to live a life and be happy I needed to have Edward by my side. I didn't care if he was telling the truth that he really didn't want me as his girlfriend. I needed Edward in my life in some way, shape or form. I was on a mission and that mission wasn't complete until I got what I wanted. I wanted a Cullen.

Chapter One: Tanya

"Dad, I'm leaving!" I shouted from the door.

"Come on Bells, cant we work something out, can't we track him down or something." Charlie asked in a shout as he ran down the stairs

"No, I have several plans that are somewhat fool proof." I told him

"Well can't I come with you, to protect you." Charlie asked,

"No you cannot get involved in this. Plus, you never did like Edward." I told him a little too quickly.

"But Bells…." Charlie moaned.

"We have already made the arrangements with school, when I come back with or without Edward I got back to high school to get my diploma. And even if I let you come you can't take off from work for that long." I told him "Now I need to go Dad. I have to do this for my sanity and yours. Don't try to stop me. I love you." I kissed his cheek as he stood there frozen in place after me taking charge of my own life for once.

I opened the door and I went out to my truck, throwing my duffle bag in the passenger's seat. I double pumped the clutch and pulled out of the driveway and made my way to the airport. It took what seemed like several hours to get to Port Angeles. The drive only took an hour, I guess it must be the nerves of faces a highly powerful family that can kill you in the blink of an eye.

As soon as I purchased my ticket a flight attendant came over the intercom, "Attention all people boarding flight 347 to Volterra Airport, please make your way to Gate 17. The plane is taking off."

I grabbed my duffle bag and passport from the seat next to me and made my way to Gate 17. I handed the lady my boarding pass and followed the connection till I got to the plane and found my seat. I settled in and as soon as we were about to take off a strawberry blonde woman sat in the seat next to me. She had pale skin, gold eyes and looked a lot like the Cullens.

"We lived in Denali Alaska before we came to Forks. We lived with another coven named the Denali's. It was a bunch of females and about 2 men. Carlisle considers them extended family."

"Did any of them show preference to you?"

"Only one, She had strawberry blonde hair, gold eyes like ours and pale skin. She asked me out a few times, but no worries love, I let her down in a gentlemanly manner telling her I wasn't interested." Edward told me once. "Remember she was a blonde, not at all my type, I prefer brunettes."

Edward told me this once or twice and I'm surprised it came to mind. This woman matched the exact description that Edward described. Worth a shot.

"Excuse me but are you Tanya Denali?" I asked her.

She turned to look at me as the pathetic human I am. "Yes, who are you?"

"Bella Swan. I am friends of the Cullens." I told her. Her mood seemed to change to easy going and evil once I said the Cullens.

"Oh yes, you are Edward's old girlfriend aren't you?" She asked as if she already knew the answer.

I nodded, "Yes, I am off to find him now, do you know where he is?"

"Yes well, I am Edward's Tanya. I am going to see him now. Alice says she sees a very close future engagement." She told me.

"Remember Bella, I prefer brunettes." Edward said in my head. I jumped in my seat. Edward was in my head leading me to him and guiding me!

"Right." I said back to him in my head.

"Confront her, than she will leave you alone." Edward said.

I laughed out loud quietly.

"Something funny?" Tanya asked.

"Yes, you're lying." I told her with acid in my throat,

"At a girl give to her, she deserves it." Edward cheered

"Why in the world would I do that?" Tanya asked.

"Well, Edward and I have talked about you and he said he would have never fallen for you. He has told me many times that he would never date you, let alone propose." I told her angelically.

"Alright, Score!" Emmett shouted in my head, Emmett, what is he doing in my head? I shrugged and Tanya was speechless and horrified that she got caught.

We didn't speak to each other for the rest of the plane ride. SO in order to keep me busy I was talking to Edward and Emmett in my head. I was really starting to lose it. This was crazy; I was having head conversations with my imagination!

"Passengers, please fasten your seatbelts, we will be landing in Volterra momentarily." The pilot announced.

Eventually the plane skidded to a stop and I grabbed my bag and ran off the plane. I grabbed a taxi and I had him drive me to the heart of Volterra. It was a very ancient city and very magnificent and full of history, I looked at the big clock tower and it was 9:30 pm. I checked into a hotel room and researched the Volterra castles on the guest computer. There were 5 castles that came up but only 1 came up, they called themselves the Volturi. I decided to call it a night knowing where was going in the morning. I was so close to finding the Cullens, I could smell their vampire scent.

I dug myself into the cover and before I fell asleep into a dreamless night, I heard in my head, "Goodnight Bella, my only love, you will find me soon, be safe." Edward whispered and kissed my brain goodnight.
