Chapter 8: The End
I'd runaway so many times in my life. First when James was after me, then to save Edward. Now I was running away with Jane. She sped through the forest, and I had no idea where we were going. But I trusted her. I trusted her to keep me safe, something that was very new to both of us. The wind rushed by me, and she moved so quickly I couldn't speak or even move. Suddenly, she stopped.
"What is it?" I asked.
"We're being followed." She whispered. She set me down and shoved me behind her. "Stay." She ordered. We stared into the darkness together, both frozen. Everything was silent and seemed safe, when suddenly a figure appeared from the darkness. Jane relaxed once she saw who the figure was. "Alec." She said. I loosened up a bit. If Jane trusted him, I could trust him. He was her brother after all. Her twin. We were safe.
"Jane, have you lost your mind?" Alec hissed stepping towards us. Now the moon light was on his marble face, so perfect like the rest of the Volturi. A breeze whipped through the trees, moving his robs around.
"No. Why are you here?" Jane hissed back. They were so alike, though they looked oddly different.
"Aro sent me! Why else would I leave the castle! What if somebody say you?"
"I was careful, Alec! You know me. Do you doubt me?" she asked.
Alec rocked back and forth, and finally shook his head. "No. But Aro must. Why else would be send me?"
"To get you me back of course." Jane took my hand and stood next to me. "But I'm not going back. I'm starting over."
"You can't do that." Said a lower voice from the trees. Alec turned around and Jane was suddenly in front of me. I peaked over her shoulder to see Felix coming out from the trees, another figure I couldn't make out was behind him. They moved into the light, and I gasped.
"Hello Felix. Edward." Jane hissed his name.
"Your coming home, Jane." Felix grinned, looking very happy to have some fun.
"Do you want me to hurt you again, Felix? You know I will." Jane grinned this time, sending shivers up my spine. I pictured Edward on the floor in pain, screaming. I shivered again.
"Just come back. And give me Bella." Edward said, speaking for the first time. For some reason, it felt good to hear his voice.
"No!" Jane hissed. She stared hard to Edward. No, she could hurt him, not again. I couldn't stand it. I grabbed her hand and pulled. She stopped and turned back to Felix. "I'm not coming back."
"Fine. Then I'll just have to make you." Suddenly, Jane pushed me forward towards Alec. Alec grabbed me and pulled me off into the woods, away from the forming fight.
"Get off me!" I complained.
"It's for your own good, Bella. Trust me." His voice was sweet and meaning, like Edward. I listened and stopped, giving in. He carried me in his arms, taking me deeper and deeper into the woods. Farther and farther from Jane and Edward. Suddenly, I heard a crashing, and something came flying through the trees, hitting them and knocking them over. I jumped in Alec's arms and he gripped me tighter. Suddenly, a blur of a body went flying back towards the fight.
"Edward." I whispered. Alec nodded slowly and started to run faster.
"We've got to get you out of here." He muttered. He actually sounded a bit worried. The safeness suddenly seemed fainter.
"Will she be okay?" I whispered.
Alec kept his head forward, not looking at me. But he suddenly smiled slowly. "Yeah. She's a strong girl."
"I know." I muttered.
He gripped me tighter, as if not wanting to me to speak. I shut up and closed my eyes, trying to forget about the fight that was taking place probably miles way by now. The vampire sped was making to dizzy, I couldn't take very much of it.
Luckily, Alec stopped and set me down.
"Jane's here." I turned around and saw Jane walking towards us. "What's happened?" Alec asked.
"I'm going with them, Bella." She said, ignoring Alec. I walked towards her.
"What about us?" I whispered.
She suddenly grabbed me and held on tight. I snuggled my head into her neck, taking in her smell. "We'll make it, Bella." I felt her smile. "I love you. That's enough."
"I love you to." I whispered. Then suddenly, I felt a piercing pain in my neck, and everything went black.
I wasn't okay with it. In fact, I was rather pissed. More then pissed… I was fed up and annoyed. Bella, my reason for living, was now dead. A monster like me. A vampire.
I don't know how I let this happen, but I do feel it's my fault. She'd left her whole life behind. Her mom and dad, Jacob, all her friends… But not me. No, not me.
We've both joined the Volturi, though our reason for joining are completely different.
She joined to be with Jane, forever and ever. I joined to be able to see her, be with her, as a friend, a guide. Just to remind her I still love her, to keep a eye out for her. She's happy, content. Though the pain of seeing her everyday with Jane kills me, all I want is for her to happy. And she is overjoyed.
And that's the end of it, for now at least.
A/N: And that's the really crappy ending chapter everybody! Not… I'll probably make a spin off or something. What do you all think?
