"Alice!" Bella exclaimed as both she and Edward got off the plane. Alice stepped forward to hug her sister.

"It's been a while," Alice said with her Italian accent."Come let's go to the chateau."

Alice stepped back and into Jaspers arms. He hugged her as they both looked at each other. Edward picked up Bella and carried her like a child. The two couples left the airport and got in a cab.

Jasper spoke for the first time.

"It is good that you are back. There is a surprise awaiting you at the chateau."


As the cab pulled into the long driveway of the chateau, Alice had the driver stop, gave him his money and thanked him. As soon as he was out of sight, Alice and Jasper started to race the last mile to the chateau. Bella and Edward looked at each other, and broke off into a run. Bella won barely. Alice and Edward and Jasper all came up behind.

Bella turned and hugged Edward. The door clicked behind them. Before Bella could turn around, someone was hugging her from behind.

"I missed you SOOOOO much!" A girl's voice squealed.

Bella broke off to see who it was that had tackled her. She saw Renesmee. It was Bella's turn to scream with delight.

Renesmee went from her mother, to hugging her father. Edward picked her up and spun her around.

"Come inside. I shall show you your rooms." Renesmee turned around swiftly and gracefully. She floated inside the house with her parents and aunt and uncle following her.

When Bella first stepped inside the chateau, she gazed in admiration at what the walls and ceiling held. It looked as if the 16th and 17th century was still around. Royal purple and red and bright gold decorated as far as the eye could see. The stairs were at the end of a long hallway. Doors the size of an elephant decorated every 15 steps on each side of the hallway. The doors, a dark wood color, looked solid, as if nothing could break them. Tapestries rich with stories, hung on the walls, after every few doors.

The winding steps were made of a type of marble. Gold banisters looked brand new. The hallway upstairs was as extravagant as downstairs, but with more doors and hallways.

"I am going to get lost." Bella said looking around after her daughter turned into the 5th hallway, at least.

Edward squeezed Bella's hand. "We will find our way together," he whispered.

Renesmee chuckled. "Here you are," she said as she opened the door. "This is where you will be staying. I will be back in an hour. Feel free to look around."

Bella and Edward walked in and Bella stood in shock at what she saw.
