The journey back to the castle was as usual, except for the fact that I was anxious of our captive who was no longer under the influence of my powers. However, she was blindfolded, gagged and guarded by Demetri. She was a compliant captive I must give her that, but she possess a power that might be stronger than my dear sister. I need not to be that Jasper Cullen to know that my sister was jealous and would be furious if Aro liked our newcomer more than her. I reassured her that Aro would be more pleased we completed our task in such a short time.
I watched -Bree was it? - From my seat. She was calm, not showing any kind of fear towards the fact that she might die by the hands of Aro himself. She must think she can escape by doing over her little trick. I mentally snorted, as if Jane and the other female guards would let that happen.
The sun was starting to rise and I immediately shut the blind. There was no need for the whole room to start glittering like a crazed teenage girl's room. Demetri and Jane followed suit, but the window by Bree remained exposed, and the slightest light coming through made her throw her head back, exposing her neck and revealing a mark that seemed to extend to her back. Drawn by it, I stared intently at her, watching her every movement as she leaned closer to the light. I have never seen a vampire who liked the sun so much. She was definitely intriguing.
Feeling Jane's gaze on me, I managed to pull away from Bree and focused on my sister. She gave me a worried look, most likely worried that Bree has done something to me. I gave her a reassuring smile and pulled her close to me, her resting her head against my shoulder, but I still felt her looking at me.
No One's P.O.V
Bree felt the sun light hit her skin, making her lean her head back at the feeling. She liked the sun, it made her feel normal… as normal as a vampire can get. She liked it even more because of the effect it had on her skin. She liked the glistening reaction it gave off.
She wasn't one of those dense girls, but she enjoyed the idea of riches. Her human life she dreamt of nothing but living in the most luxurious house, with the nicest clothes and not to mention the jewelry. However, she didn't let her fantasies be known, living in a strict home, she would be scowled for a day or two. She was taught to not be materialist, but how could she not?
She suddenly felt a jerk and she knew they were landing. Mentally preparing herself for her fate to be determined by a group of snobby vampires who felt they owned everything and also judging her for some false accusation.
Her senses started to fade away again, and she swore to herself that she will bring the one responsible for it to his knees. Was his name Alex? Was it important to her to be thinking of it?
She thought… No.
Alec walked in front of Demetri, behind Jane, as they walked through the numerous halls of the castle, others staring after them as they passed while they eyed the new born slung over Demetri's shoulder.
Bree once again, showed no sign of residence, and that now put Alec on edge.
What was she planning? Alec pondered. All thoughts were put aside once they entered the throne room, immediately being greeted by Aro who held a wide, proud grin on his face. He felt proud himself, being able to please his master in whatever way he could.
"Ah, what a pleasant surprise to see you all back, earlier than expected too." Aro approached his guards smiling at them with that mad grin but stopped in front of Demetri.
"And without much trouble I see."
Demetri gave his master a smirk then proceeded to place the new born on her feet, giving Aro a full view of her gagged form. Aro turned to Jane, a questioning look being thrown her way but her response was to glare at the new born. That was all Aro needed.
When can they take this disgusting cloth out of my mouth and remove the blindfold? This is ridiculous. I wish I could just scream their existence to the ground.
I sensed their leader in front of me, he smelled old. He probably was.
"Hello young one." he sounded… Cheerful… Strange.
"Demetri, if you would please."
My blindfold was removed and I saw the grin of a maniac. How can anyone be comfortable around that?! I am not prepared for this, Amun choosing to keep any details of the Volturi away from me.
"If I may," he held his hand out. I stated at it for a while. What if he's going to hurt me like that blonde? Or suck the nonexistent life out of me?
I felt the guard behind me grab my hand but was stopped by his master.
"No no young one, let her do it on her own."
Was that supposed to make me trust him? The look in his eyes seemed genuine, but that smile said otherwise.
Mentally sighing and with so much hesitation I placed my hand gently in his but he grabbed it, squeezing it with both hands and closing his eyes.
Sorry for the short chapter but I really couldn't think of anything and I was long overdue for an update. Hopefully I can make the next chapter better.
Thank you for being patient with me. Please review, I would love to know what you think of it.
