Chasing pavements

I do not own Twilight in any way.


The moment Carlisle and Esme pulled up, a cry of "Alistair!" rang out.

Alistair groaned and turned to Carlisle. "You invited her?" he asked.

A girl around 16 came running out of the house.

The first thing she did was give him a migraine.

Alistair dropped to the ground holding his head.

She released him. "Do you have any idea how long I've been looking for you?!" she yelled.

Alistair struggled to get up. "Why are you here?" he asked.

"When I heard the Cullen family was gathering witnesses…let's just say I didn't come for Renesmee", she said.

"I should've known that as soon as Carlisle told you, you'd be here", he spat.

"Do you have any idea how hard you are to find you damn recluse?!" she yelled at him.

"Why are you here?" he asked him again.

The girl growled and said, "Because I left".

"You do not simply leave the Volturi", he said.

"Well I did", I told him.

"What about Chelsea?" he asked.

"Alistair! When you left, the ties holding me to the Volturi snapped! I didn't have the confidence to leave until Carlisle did! Marcus saw our relationship the moment I joined. I wasn't forced. I joined for you", she said.

Carlisle and Esme just stood there as the girl's eyes filled with venomous tears.

Alistair reached out to her, but she jerked away.

"Don't talk me to Alistair", she said, "I don't think I could stand it". She walked off into the forest.


When it came time to face the Volturi, Alistair turned to Carlisle. "You know I won't fight against them", he said.

"Hopefully it won't come to that", Carlisle said.


A few days later, the group of vampires stood in a snowy field.

Alistair stood in the back. "They're coming", Alistair said, "I'm sorry Carlisle". He started to walk off when he felt Elizabeth slip her hand in his.

"You didn't think you were leaving without me again did you?" she asked him.

Alistair smiled and the two ran off.
