Jane asked for permission from Jasper if she could borrow me for a minute. Jasper agreed and before me and Jane can go anywhere, he pulled me in a hug and kissed me lightly on the forehead. The feel of his lips on my skin sends electric shocks in my body. That made Jane sneered. Not in a bad, rude manner. But in an amused, friendly one. As soon as we were out of the thick doors, I realized we were heading in a different direction. Curious, I asked Jane.
" Where are we heading? " I stammered.
" To my room. I would like to do something with you. And I don't want prying eyes from my fellow Volturi guards. But I think, I have to explain to our Master afterwards. But I'm sure he will understand. I'm his favorite. " She said in a proud voice.
" Alright. Okay with me. " I informed her. She shrugged like a little kid and gave me another angelic, innocent smile.
I returned the smile and finally we came into a stop in front of another wooden, ancient door. The room was located in the west part. Jane opened the door and she gestured for me to get inside. I followed after her, not sure whether I should be scared of Jane or be intrigued by her. She left behind the door to close it, but she did not lock it.
" Well, Jane? What is it you wanted to do with me? " I asked, my eyebrows arched.
" I want to test my gift on you. I would like to see if you can be spare or my pain could inflict on you. " Jane said in a small icy voice.
My eyes widened with horror but I mentally slapped myself. I'm going to join this unusually large coven and I'm afraid from my future, fellow guard? No, I'm not. Jane saw the early hesitation died from my eyes. But she just laughed. Her voice was like magic.
" Sure. Go ahead. It intrigues me also. " I told her. My eyes were shining with curiosity.
Jane lifted her hood from her head and concentrated on my face. She plastered a grin on her face and a second later, I was on the floor. Writhing in pain. I was not screaming but I was groaning and whimpering like a stray cat.The pain was horrible. My body was burning inside everywhere. Every vein, every bone inside me was burning. But as quickly as it had hurt, the burning faded. When I rose from my knees, Jane was smiling happily and she was even humming a tune to herself.
" That hurt a lot Jane. " I said while I was brushing off the wrinkles from my green shirt. Jeesh, I still havent change. I smelled bad but Jasper was saying over and over again that I smelled of freesia and lush.
" Of course. Well, I conclude, that you are immune to my illusion of pain. The official term for my exceptional, formidable gift. " jane said proudly as she twirled in circles gracefully. She reminded me of Alice. Her fourteen year old preserved delicate angelic beauty was shining with joy.
" Of course I am. However, I'm completely wondering what would be my special ability when I become one of you. " I blurted out before I could stop myself.
" I don't know. But I know and my insticnts were telling me that you have great potential. " Jane said.
I smiled at the great compliment. But we were interrupted when Jasper went inside closely followed by Aro and Chelsea. I saw Jane's reaction when she saw Aro with Chelsea. Jane is a mystery. I have to find out what's pestering her everytime she sees Chelsea's pretty face.
" My Bella. " Jasper said and i ran into his open arms. He held me and then he pressed his face in my hair, when he released me, Aro was waiting patiently for my attention to be shifted on him.
" Master Aro. " I speak his name and bowed courteously.
" Rise,Isabella. " Master Aro commanded. I looked at him and a smile crossed my face. I'm smiling every now and then. That's great. Nothing could ever make my life miserable again. Charlie and Renee popped in my mind all of a sudden. But they were erased when I stared into Aro's milky red eyes.
" Master, I wish to join the Guard after Bella has completed the change." Jasper muttered.
Aro looked at him and there he goes again, he smiled. For seemed like the zillionth time since I had seen him. Aro was like a happy man. A happy vampire.
" As you wish, Jasper. " Aro answered.
I noticed Jane and Chelsea were actually glowering at each other silently. The emotions from them must have bothered my Jazz because he stiffened but then relaxed as Jane and Chelsea looked away from each other. Jealousy was showing from Jane's ancient eyes. My wise guess was that Jane was jealous because Master Aro picked out Chelsea as his other guard.
" Master, I'll be in Alec's room if you need something. " Jane said as she exited from her room. Her black cloak billowed as she glided away.
Aro stared after her and shook his head. He told us to go to his study so we could a discuss a few things there. But she told Chelsea to get Jane immediately and that she could take her duty off. When we arrived at Aro's study, Jane also arrived a moment shortly. She seemed to be in a cool mood.
" Bella. In what time you will be ready to go through the changing process?" Aro asked.
" Anytime. Even now would be absolutely perfect. " I replied.
Aro grinned and turned to Jasper.
" Well? "
" I agree Master. " Jasper responded. HIs face calm...and glad.
" Who will do it? " Jane asked.
" It's for Bella to choose. " Aro pointed out.
I jumped at the good news and uttered one name. :
" JASPER. "
Jasper took my face in his hands and his eyes were doubtful. I grunted and exploded into a series of my Bella babble. In the end he gave up and agreed to be the one who will change me.
" I love you Jasper. Thank you! "
" I love you more Bella."
Aro chuckled and I was now seeing him putting his hands on Jane's waist. WEIRD. So odd. Jane seemed flattered at the touch. I shivered at little.
" I want to be change later at sunset." I informed them.
" Later at sunset it is then. " Aro said.
" We're going to do this. " Jasper whispered in my ear and nibbled my ear affectionately, he looked up to check the grandfather clock beside the door of Aro's study.
" It's already 12."
