Alice suddenly took her hand back, glaring at Aro with undisguised hatred and disgust in her eyes. "It doesn't matter what I show you." She snapped. "Even when you see, you still won't change your decision."
The small girl turned her head, looking over at Bella. "Now." She mouthed slowly.
Bella looked over at Renesmee and Jacob. "Take care of my daughter." She whispered to Jacob, who instantly turned and began running.
"Get them!" Caius commanded. A member of the guard ran off in pursuit of Renesmee and Jacob.
Calypso wasted no time. She turned to Benjamin. "I'll be right back." She whispered. When he looked uncertain, she pressed a quick kiss to his lips before running over to Paul. "Let's go, Paul! They need our help."
Paul nodded, obviously seeing where she was going with this. Calypso jumped onto his back and he began running. The blonde threw a look behind her back, seeing Benjamin watching her retreating form. She watched until she could no longer see him because of the trees blocking her vision. At that point, she looked ahead, gripping Paul's fur tightly.
"We have to catch up to them." Calypso explained to Paul. "If we don't, that vampire will kill Renesmee."
Paul seemed to understand, picking up his pace and running faster. She saw Jacob ahead, along with the vampire who was jumping in the trees, attemping to attack Renesmee and Jacob from above them.
Suddenly, Paul seemed to slow down a bit, his eyes widening and his body tensing. He suddenly let out a howl, followed by Jacob's howl. Calypso knew what that meant, but she knew that she had to focus. She looked at the vampire ahead. "Pain." She muttered. The vampire tensed, pain coursing through his body. He screamed, and Jacob took this opportunity to flip and tear the vampires head off, throwing it behind him before he continued running. Paul slid to a stop, looking at the vampire's head that was before them.
"Let's get back, Paul." Calypso said, and Paul didn't need to be told twice. He turned and ran back to the battle.
Benjamin looked around wildly, seeing all of his friends being taken down. He watched as the wolves were killed, the Volturi killed, and the witnesses killed. He looked over at the woods, not seeing Calypso or Paul. He shook his head, raising his fist and slamming it into the ground, creating a giant crack in the Earth.
He turned, releasing his pent up rage on the Volturi. He assisted the wolves in killing at least a dozen of their members, killing them quickly. How dare they come and harm his friends, his family, and possibly his mate. How dare they even think about it...
He turned, only to see Calypso running towards him. She wrapped her arms around his middle, burying her face in his chest. He felt himself calming down and wrapped his arms around her in return, breathing in her intoxicating scent. "I thought I'd lost you." He whispered to her.
She shook her head, looking up at him. "You can't get rid of me that easily." She replied, smiling slightly, making him smile in return. They seperated, knowing that a battle scene really wasn't a place for a heartfelt reunion.
Benjamin was buised with a group of vampires so Calypso turned, knowing that she had to do something.
She saw Jane smirking and attacking one of the wolves with her power. Calypso felt a growl leave her throat before she knew what was happening. "You little shithead." She snapped, making Jane look at her. "Pain." She muttered, watching as Jane fell to her knees, a scream leaving her lips.
Calypso neared her painfully slowly, standing in front of her and glaring down at her. "How do you like it, huh?" She snapped, grabbing her by her neck and throwing her to Alice. Alice then threw her to Sam, who tore her to shreds.
"Now you know." Alice snapped, tearing her hand out of Aro's grip. "That's your future, unless you decide on another course."
I looked over at Edward, who had no doubt seen Alice's vision as well through his mind reading. I chalked up the fact that I had seen it to the fact that maybe I'd copied Edward's gift.
"You saw it too?" Benjamin whispered. I looked up at him, confused as to why he'd seen it, before I realized something.
"I must have copied Aro's gift." I muttered. Benjamin nodded, wrapping an arm around me and pressing a kiss to my head.
"We cannot alter our course, the child as well as the girl still pose a grave threat." Caius said quickly and in a matter of fact tone.
"But if you were sure that they both could remain concealed from the human world?" Edward questioned. "Could we leave in peace?"
"Of course, but that cannot be known." Caius snapped.
"Actually, it can." Edward replied.
Suddenly, two figures emerged from the clearing, each decked out in old clothing that looked to be Brazilian to me.
"I've been searching for witnesses of my own, among the Tekona tribes of Brazil." Alice stated proudly, a smile on her face.
"We have enough witnesses-"
Aro held up a hand to silence the blonde. "Let him speak, brother."
The man was the next to speak. "I am half human, half vampire, like the girl and the child. A vampire seduced my mother, who died giving birth to me. My aunt Huilen raised me as her own. I made her immortal."
"How old are you?" Bella questioned, making him turn to face her and give her a small smile.
"A hundred and fifty years." He replied.
"At what age did you reach maturity?" Aro questioned him.
"I became full grown seven years after my birth." He replied. "I've not changed since then."
"And your diet?" Aro questioned.
"Blood, human food." He gave Aro a small shrug. "I can survive on either."
"These children are much like us." Marcus said, his eyes wide as he looked at the stranger, Renesmee, and I before looking back at Aro.
"Regardless," Caius replied, "the Cullens have been consorting with werewolves, our natural enemies."
"Dear ones, there is no danger here." Aro said, turning to look at his army, as well as Caius and Marcus. "We will not fight today."
Looking disappointed, Caius and Jane took their leave along with the rest of the Volturi. Aro paused, looking back at Bella, Alice, and I. "Such a prize." He muttered to himself, before he too left.
"We have them on the run!" Shouted Vladimir. "Now is the time to attack."
"Not today." Carlisle looked away from his wife and children to address Vladimir, who looked severely disappointed and angry.
"You're all fools!" Shouted an angered Stefan. "The Volturi might be gone, but they will never forgive what happened here."
I ignored the two vampires, turning to Paul and sinking to my knees, hugging him around his fluffy neck. "We did it, Paul!" I cried out, laughing. He grinned at me, a sparkle in his eyes that showed me that he was happy about our victory, too. I stood up and Paul walked ahead, knowing that I wanted to talk to Benjamin.
Without a word, Benjamin cupped my face in his hands, pressing his lips to mine. He pulled away after a moment, opening his mouth to speak, but I kissed him again, wrapping my arms around his neck. He was surprised but he complied, wrapping his arms around my waist to bring me closer to him.
"I'm so glad." I whispered, grinning up at him. Benjamin smiled down at me and nodded, wrapping an arm around me and walking back to the Cullen's house by my side, Paul joining back up with us and walking by my other side.
