Chapter 18

Third Person's POV

Alaska

It ended up taking them a week to reach Alaska, mostly because Rosalie and Emmett wanted to delay their return for as long as possible. The chest that they had been given was weighing heavily in their gut, the house was now in sight, and that meant that Edward would hear their thoughts, of course all he was hearing was how Emmett and Rosalie wanted nothing more than to hunt and break in the new bed.

Emmett, of course, was being very graphic with this thought process.

"Emmett, must you be so crude?" Edward's voice floated down to them from the house.

Emmett's jaw locked up and began glaring at the house.

"Maybe you should go fuck yourself, Eddie." Emmett snarled viciously.

"EMMETT!" Esme gasped out in shock.

Rosalie had to admit, she had never heard her mate speak so viciously before, but unlike Esme, she knew the mind reading prick had it coming.

"Esme, I love you like my own flesh and blood mother, but you don't know what we know. Your precious golden boy is lucky I'm not ripping his spine out and using it to fucking hang him with." Rosalie snarled.

There were gasps of shock at Rosalie's colourful and vicious response, the mated couple shared a grim look before walking at normal vampire speed so as to get what they were about to do over with. Inside the family living room, both Emmett and Rosalie found that the Denali coven were there along with the rest of the Cullens.

"Would you two like to explain your behaviour?" Carlisle asked them, a scowl on his face.

Rosalie and Emmett looked at each other before simply dropping the chest they were holding between them on the table.

"What is that? It's hideous!" Alice exclaimed

"Open it and find out." Emmett growled coldly

The room was filled with cautious glances, before Eleazar, who was closest, leaned forward and opened the chest. For a moment both Rosalie and Emmett swore that Eleazar was going to throw up, Eleazar leapt to his feet with a look of pure horror on his face. It wasn't long however until rage set in, a look of rage so intense that his mate shrank back in fear.

"What. Is. This?" Eleazar demanded in a dangerously calm voice.

"This, Eleazar would what we let Victoria do to Bella and her family, and I promise you, they are very real." Rosalie replied, her own anger barely being kept under control.

"What's real? What's going on?" Alice demanded like a petulant child.

Rosalie made to jump on Alice, but Emmett acted quickly and wrapped his arms around her waist.

"No." Emmett hissed in her ear, his voice oozing dominance.

Rosalie quickly complied to her mate's request, while Eleazar simply turned the chest round so that everyone could see what was inside.

Esme, Tanya, Kate, Irina and Carmen shrieked in horror, Carlisle and Jasper both looked disgusted, Edward was unmoving and Alice cringed.

"Why do you have animal hearts? Really, it's barbaric." Alice said with disgust.

Rosalie struggled to break free of Emmett's hold so she could get to Alice.

"Rosalie, enough!" Emmett snapped.

But Rosalie was too enraged to even hear her mate at that point.

"THEIR THE HEARTS OF BELLA'S FAMILY YOU STUPID SELFISH FAIRY BITCH! VICTORIA RIPPED OUT THEIR HEARTS IN FRONT OF BELLA BEFORE KILLING BELLA, HERSELF!" Rosalie screeched, looking like a woman possessed.

There are times when silence is deafening, and this was one of those moments. Nobody said anything, nobody moved, and if a human were to enter the room at that moment, they would see either realistic statues or instantly see them for the vampires they are.

"W...why?" Carlisle tried to ask, but his horror stole his voice.

"Why did Victoria kill Bella? Is that the question you were going to ask, Carlisle? Really?" Emmett snarled, his own anger starting to crack the damn he'd tried to build. His instincts as a mate, kicked in and forced to release Rosalie for fear of hurting her.

"Why do you think, Carlisle? We killed her MATE! She wanted revenge and she got it." Emmett growled.

"I think I'm going to be sick." Kate whispered appalled.

Rosalie, who had been watching Jasper from the moment she'd realised what she had screamed out, noticed that something in her brother's eyes had changed. Grabbing hold of the back of Emmett's shirt, she gently pulled on the material, a silent and desperate plea to get her mate to move out of reach from Jasper's obvious and increasing wrath.

"I warned you." A thick angry southern voice suddenly spoke, and if it were possible, the room became even quieter.

Heads turned to look at Jasper, his posture oozed suppressed rage and it looked as though he had just reached his breaking point.

"It was none of your business, Jasper." Edward sneered at him.

At that moment, the Denali coven, along with Emmett and Rosalie were all thinking the same thing.

'Idiot.'

"None of my business...NONE OF MY BUSINESS!" Jasper shouted, and in one swift motion, Edward found himself pinned to the floor with one very livid vampire snarling at him.

"OF COURSE IT WAS MY FUCKING BUSINESS! YOU BROUGHT A HUMAN INTO THIS COVEN, A HUMAN I ENDED UP LOVING LIKE A LITTLE SISTER AND WE LEFT HER TO BE BUTCHERED BECAUSE YOU'RE TOO MUCH OF A PUSSY TO ADMIT SHE WAS NOTHING MORE THAN GAME!" Jasper screamed in Edward's face.

"LET HIM GO!" Alice shrieked.

"Really, Alice," Jasper sneered, as he merely increased his grip on Edward. "Your best friend's heart is in a fucking box and you're more concerned about Eddie getting hurt? What about Bella? She died in a way that no human or vampire should ever suffer, but you didn't see it did you. Now we have to spend an eternity knowing that we helped kill her, and her family." Jasper sneered with growing disgust.

A sickening thought suddenly occurred to Rosalie.

"How do we know she didn't see it?" Rosalie voiced her thought.

The Denali coven snarled.

"If that's true, then Alice will be spending the rest of her life getting up close and personal with sparky." Kate growled, as she felt her power flow through her entire body.

At the sight of Alice's widening eyes, everyone in the room began to wonder if Rosalie's thought was the truth.

A/N: There you go, hope you liked the chapter. Does anyone else think that True Blood has just went nuts? It's gotten too wacky for me to follow, so I'll be definitely be going completely AU from here on out. Which means, next to no Sookie & Bill. Keeping Lafayette though, that guy is AWESOME!
