Okay, use this scenario: It's 2:37 in the morning, you want to go to a party at someone's house and you need to sneak out and away from your parents. Now take that scenario and change the party to Italy. Change someone's house to a coven of vampires, oh and change parents to vampires! Now see what I have to go through!
My head ached from the earlier "asthma attack" and I had packed lightly. Edward was with Bella and Jasper, Rosalie, and Alice were out hunting. Carlisle knew I was leaving and told Esme. That left escaping from Emmet. Easy.
I tip toed down stairs and out the door when I felt myself being pulled back. I looked behind me and jumped a little when I saw Edward was the one pulling me back by the strap of my bag.
"Where do you think your going?" He growled, his eyes glinted a deep purple.
"E-Edward! What are you doing back? I thought you were with Bella!" I mumbled, obviously annoyed and angry.
"I came home to shower. Where are you going?" He asked sternly, his still purple eyes flashed at me.
"Edward, I'm tired of lying to you." I took a slow, deep breath, "I'm going to Italy. Yes, you could say I'm running away." Edward paused and stared at me for a minute.
"I'm not letting you go." He whispered. Something hit me by the way he looked at me and said that. He sounded lost, confused even. I looked at Edward. He looked sad and tormented. His eyes held a thousand words he wanted to say, but couldn't. And most importantly, it shattered my heart, his eyes held the hurt of the world. The same hurt he felt when he left Bella.
"Edward. I will never leave you, I don't want to leave you. You are the closest thing to family I've ever had. This is something I want to do, something I have to do. You need to understand. Please." I said desperately. Edward drew me closer and wrapped his arms around me tightly.
"I don't want you to leave. I don't want you to leave me! You and Bella, you're all I really have. I almost lost her..." He paused, "I don't want to go through anything like that again, especially if it's you. I wouldn't be able to take it." Edward held me tighter and tighter. I felt tears come to my eyes.
"Edward, please never let me go." I began to cry and cried silently into his arms. I felt all the emotions I've been going through, just be exposed through my tears. Edward picked me up and held me tight. He let my tears fell onto his shoulders. I convulsed in his arms as tears shook me.
"I will never let you go. Never." He whispered in my ear.
"Somebody's distracted!" Seth mocked in my mind.
"Back off!" I growled and crossed Seth.
"Seriously guys...Jake's girlfriend just left him for Italy!" Quin joked.
The only person not joking was Paul, which surprised everybody. Sam had forbid me to talk to her ever again. Anger washed over me every time I looked at him now, and he knew. I forgave her for what she is, even if I still don't understand it.
I didn't say anything, I just switched back and began walking the opposite direction. Anger, despair, and agony filled my mind and my heart. Someone I didn't even have left me! I spit angrily on the ground and kept walking. I heard Paul call to me, but I kept walking. Raindrops began to fall. I kept walking and let the raindrops hit my back like sheets of ice, and I never looked back.
"See Athenodora? She's falling for my trap and look! We ruined a life too! Joyous occasions!" I smiled wickedly.
"Y-Yes Sulpicia. G-G-Good job." she smiled weakly.
"Now all we have to do is get her to us." I tapped my nails against my temples, "What shall we do, Athenodora?"
"I-I don't know! Maybe we could go to her?" Athenodora asked innocently.
"No!" I yelled, "She's coming to us! I will not stand for that kind of talk Athenodora!" I began to calm down, "Just you wait, she will come to us." I smiled maliciously and held a devilish twinkle in my eye, "She will come to us..."
I now sat in the front seat of Edward's black Volvo, staring out the window, letting a few stray tears caress my cheeks. We both sat in silence after what had just happened. I felt an air of forgiveness and content around us. One thing still felt lost inside of me, and that was Jake. I missed him. Something about me felt different not being with him, even after what happened. As I left, I felt part of me leaving too, it just didn't feel right.
