~Alyssa's POV~

It's 6:30a.m. The Volturi are going to be here in exactly six hours.

How do I know this? Because Alice had a vision. We have been laying on my bed in my room for the past two hours practicing our enhanced visions. We have learned to enter the vision and leave the vision whenever we want. We have learned to wake up when we want, instead of having the darkness decide when to let us wake up.

Renesmee and Jacob are in Nessie's room. Only God wants to know whats happening in that room. She may have the mind of a sixteen year old but she only looks about thirteen so it looks really wrong whenever Jake and her kiss. Every now and then, i accidentally hear Jake or Nessie's thoughts and find out that they are trying to swallow each other, or speaking romantically. When that happens, i have to hold back puking. It's just...ughh...gross. I'm trying o stay away from their minds, but there thought are basically screaming what they are thinking.

Edward constantly went up there, but gave up about an hour ago when he finally realized that nobody could stop them.

As soon as they found out that the Volturi was coming today, they called the vampires that had helped with the Volturi for Renesmee. They all had agreed to come.

There are four covens, plus mine, downstairs. The Amazonians were the first to come. Then the Denalis, the Egyptians, and the Irish followed soon after.

I read each of their minds to know who they all were. There was Katchiri, Senna, and Zafrina from the Amazon coven. Elezar, Carmen, Kate, Garret, and Tanya from the Denali coven. Amun, Kebi, Benjamin, and Tia from the Egyptian coven. Maggie, Siobhan, and Liam from the Irish coven. And lastly, Edward, Bella, Emmett, Rosalie, Alice, Jasper, Carlisle, Esme, Renesmee, and I from our coven.

Sadly, the increased number of people on our team did not change the future. We would all still die.

I wasn't aloud downstairs until all the new vampires were situated and stuff.

"I'm going downstairs. Stay here until we come get you." Alice said, getting up and walking out the door.

I nodded and got out of bed. I went into the bathroom and decided to take a shower. Not that i needed to, i dont stink or anything, i don't even sweat. I was just hoping that it would let me relax and take my mind off what will be happening in a few hours.

I turn the water to as hot as it can go. I step in and feel like my skin is on fire. I welcome that more than thinking about how my family and I will all die today. The scorching water burns all my thoughts away while it runs down my back. After about thirty minutes, the hot water starts to run out and I step out of the shower, putting a towel around my body.

I brush out my hair and blow dry it. Then i run to my closet. I grab my teal Converse high tops, a pair of black yoga pants, and a loose white T-shirt. I go back to the bathroom and put my clothes on. I look in the mirror and notice that i didn't do my hair. All i did was brushed it and dried it.

I was about to not worry about it and walk out of the bathroom, but my 'Alice' side decided that i should do something with it. I put it in a high pony tail and curled it.

I walked back into my room and turned on my laptop. The low humming of it turning on made me jump because it was so quiet in here. I checked my email and found nothing that i care cared about on there. A disneyland add and the new iPad mini add.

The mind numbing helpfulness that the shower provided was wearing off. I turned my laptop off.

My phone started buzzing, indicating that i had a new text message. I clicked on it and read it quickly.

Are you ready to come down stairs? Carlisle said you can now.


I hit reply and started typing.

Yeah, do you have to cone escort me or something?


His reply came almost instantly.

Yes. We don't know how they are going to react to you.


i frowned and I replied.

Okay, come get me.


I heard Jazz run the stairs and appear in my doorway. We ran down the stairs and all eyes were on me. Some gold, but mainly red.

Jazz stayed by my side and had no intention of moving. I put my hand on his arm and asked him if i should begin now. (Renesmee style)

He gave a slight nod. The atmosphere was really awkward, so i decided to get to know everyone before telling them my story.

"Hello, my name is Alyssa." i said, extending my hand to a boy closest to me.

"Hello, my name is Benjamin." he replied, shaking my hand. I felt a wave of coldness wash through me. I just gained the power to influence the elements.

I eventually shook everyone's hand. I made myself the temperature of a vampire so people don't freak out yet. I gained a few more powers from these guys. I gained powers from Kate, Zafrina, Benjamin, and Elezar.

After we introduced ourselves to each other, i told my story, leaving out my power.

Elezar was looking at me rather frustratingly.

"What is it Elezar?" i asked him.

"You are obviously extremely gifted, but i cannot pin-point your exact power." he replied.

Curiousness filled the room. I could tell that everyone wanted to know what Elezar meant. They didn't even know i had a power.

Well, time to let out my secret. AGAIN.

I told them about my ability and what i could do so far.

"No wonder why the Volturi want you!" Tanya cried out. "You're amazing!"

"Er...yeah...thanks." i say awkwardly.

After about an hour, Jazz takes me outside to show me how to fight. I win almost every time. He says that that is amazing because he is usually never beaten and i wasn't using any of my powers.

We all go inside and talk amongst ourselves until Alice says two words that make my stomach churn and my muscles freeze.

"It's time." Alice murmers.
