The Saviour Of Bree Tanner
"You missed one," said Jane her eyes narrowing in on the very small figure of Bree Tanner. She was groaning in pain with the thirst in her throat, she wished it would stop she had no idea in a few minutes there would be worse pain to come. All she had done unfortunately was be in the wrong place and at the wrong time. She was just a young confused little girl that Jane had at once point been. She obviously didn't have one ounce of empathy in her body, because Jane already wanted her dead. For breaking rules she had no idea even existed. Unfortunately life wasn't fair, and that's something everyone learned at one point or another in their life. Perhaps not always as young as Bree Tanner here.
"She was turned by Victoria perhaps you know her," said Edward his eyes never leaving Jane's. He knew she was aware of them, he could read her thoughts; she'd been hoping the New Born army would kill them. How he wanted to wipe that smile of her face, the smug little bitch she was. Unfortunately he knew all too well what kind of gift she had. He didn't want to experience it again any time soon. So he forced himself to curb his tongue and not say anything else.
"The Volturi has no knowledge of Victoria's doings or they would have put a stop to it right Jane?" said Carlisle soothingly - he didn't believe his own words. But if he wanted his family to survive this confrontation without having the entire Volturi guard hunting them down he had to cool the situation and fast. If there was anyone that knew what they were up to it was his son. Edward could read their thoughts, and he believed Edward to be telling the truth. However, truth or not he just wanted his family to survive this encounter intact.
"Indeed" said Jane sweetly.
"We offered her Asylum, as she surrendered" said Carlisle getting back to the matter at hand. The Cullen's were protecting her slightly by standing around her; Jasper was closest to her calming her down as much as he could. Also managing to keep a united front, lest the Volturi be tempted to do anything. He could feel their emotions, they were jealous, angry and disappointed. He wasn't sure why those emotions but he could take a shrewd guess.
"That wasn't your choice to give" said Jane immediately. She hated the Cullen's with a passion, mostly because they seemed so much more united than the Volturi. They acted like a family, and it was what she wanted. Not even Chelsea's gift could erase that completely. So she became even more defensive and angry, and it was unfortunately Bree that would suffer because of it.
"She didn't know what she was doing," Rosalie snapped right back. How was she supposed to learn the rules? Her sire had been an insane bitch, and she was still around too!
"Give her a chance," said Carlisle soothingly; hoping they had mercy, she was just a little child. She was even younger than Alice and Edward; she did not deserve what life had thrown at her.
"We will take full responsibility for her," said Esme, her heart shaped face full of longing and hurt. She knew what was coming, and was desperate to stop it. The Volturi never backed down she knew that. No child deserved what they were proposing! And she knew what that was, killing her, ripping up the pieces and set fire too.
"There are no second chances for those who break the rules," said Jane curtly her brother, Felix and Demetri were still standing behind Jane sharing shocked looks. A new born vampire being coherent enough to surrender? It wasn't something the Volturi had ever heard of before.
Bree Tanner screamed in pain, she didn't understand why it was happening or who was doing it. All she knew was the all consuming pain she was in, she screamed and pleaded in her head for someone - anyone to make it stop. Her brown hair was flown back her childish face one of utter agony. The Cullen's just stood there knowing there was nothing they could do to stop the Volturi. Unfortunately they couldn't keep their mouths quiet.
"There is no need to do that, she will tell you everything you want to know," snapped Esme. Esme Cullen, her golden hair and heart shaped face, loved every single member of her family. She was the ultimate mother, and she was even trying to save the one who had been sent to kill her family. Knowing the little girl had only been doing what she was told and knew of no other way.
"I know," said the sickly sweet smiled Volturi member called Jane.
"Then let her go," said a new voice in the clearing, causing the vampires to zone in on him. They couldn't help but wonder how on earth they had missed him. He was walking towards them fast, seemingly in a hurry to get to something. His voice sounded furious at the people gathered together.
"Who are you?" asked Jane her face going ridged; she did not like being surprised.
The mystery stranger was already touching Bree and every single bone in her body relaxed completely as if they had never been in pain. Jane snarled she didn't like that very much - her handy work being undone. She furiously directed her gift towards him feeling extremely vicious and victorious.
However, the old saying what goes around comes around did indeed happen, when Jane tried to use her gift on the unknown stranger. However, instead of him screaming it was Jane who was on the floor screaming. Her hands scratching at her stone face as if trying to get something off. The long brown haired man had his hand outstretched a look of utter contempt on his face. Alice held Jasper back - Jasper didn't like the fact this stranger could do that to a member of the Volturi. Although he did get some sense of sick pleasure out of it.
"Let's see how you like it" snarled the strange man his fury even more potent than before.
"Stop it!" snarled Alex angrily, trying to blind the unknown man, trying to even the playing field. Plus if he couldn't see, perhaps his gift would stop working on his sister. Despite his calculations he was baffled, how on earth did this man have his sister's gift? Nobody he had come across had anything resembling it; it didn't bode well for them. He knew how much Aro valued gifts, and this man's was obviously better than hers. Jane had never been able to make anyone scream in such a way like this stranger was.
"Do you want a piece of your gift too? If not I suggest you stop trying," hissed the stranger angrily. Alex immediately did stop trying to use his gift instead tried to use it on his sister to stop the pain but it didn't come to much. His gift was being rejected as if his sister was rejecting his touch. So the man had his gift too? Was he a leecher? Able to take someone else's gift as their own? That didn't make sense but it could be true. If it wasn't the case, then how was he able to use his and his sister's gift? He just hoped Aro didn't find out. He wasn't oblivious to Aro's ways, he knew if someone better than them came along they'd be brushed aside in favour of the newcomer.
Edward hid Bella behind him, he couldn't read this strangers thoughts and had no idea if he was a threat or not. However, he let the events play out for now as this man had not shown signs of harming anyone. Other than Jane who had brought it on herself, if Edward was honest he was rather fascinated with it. He noticed that Jasper was trying and failing to hide Alice behind him. Which was also a lost cause, he was just grateful his mate was human and easier to control.
No not mate; Singer but he didn't realize that.
"How did you do that?" asked Demetri, he couldn't help but feel smug about the fact that Jane was getting a taste of her own medicine. She had done it to him often enough he wondered silently how she liked it.
"Leave now and we shall forget this all happened," said the cloaked figure, he rummaged in a bag from his shoulder before going back to Bree and giving her something. Blood, animal blood the Cullen's relaxed more at that it was obvious this man must be a vegetarian like them.
However, Jane didn't take a hint when it was given and tried once again to use her gift on him. The mysterious man just signed and twisted his finger and before anyone realized Jane was again screaming in agony. "I really don't like using that power but I will if you keep testing me."
"Just stop please!" said Alex he had never seen his sister in pain and he didn't like it. They were supposed to be all powerful, but how could they be? When neither of their powers worked on this man…nor did they work on a human - one human called Bella Swan but human none the less. Alex didn't like it in the least it made him feel vulnerable and he had never felt like that before in his immortal existence.
The man abruptly stopped his fingers twitching again; Jane lay there panting as her face knitted back together again. If she hadn't been a vampire her face would have been a sorry mess of scratches and scars by now.
"I will kill you," hissed Jane angrily her red eyes glowing in anger.
"Please by all means try," said the cloaked figure tauntingly.
The Cullen's wanted to leave, to show the Volturi they didn't have a part in this but they couldn't. They had never seen anyone stand up to the Volturi before, usually they went out of their way to avoid attracting attention unless they were suicidal. So basically they were just completely curious about this newcomer. Awed at him even, for his guts and he didn't seem insane maybe just cocky? Who knew?
"Take care of them Demetri I'd like to go home," said Jane standing up trying and failing to look superior. Her entire body was shaken and weak; her blonde hair which was usually tied back almost painfully was falling down her face. She glared at the newcomer in disgust and rage, so badly wanting to use her gift but unable to do so without it coming back to bite her in the arse.
