Anastasia sat in the backseat of Alice's car in the Cullen's garage with Bella. Jasper held her hand through the window, his face was mixed with all sorts of emotions, too many for Ana to pin-point. Though Ana only held one emotion visible, fear. She was scared she'd lost Rowen forever, she was scared of loosing Jasper and Bella, the entire Cullen family. 

Truth be told, she was terrified of loosing everyone. "I don't care if I get hurt or killed, Jazz. Just please, please make sure Rowen is okay." Her voice cracked at the mention of her brother, Jasper frowned and sent a wave of calmness her way. The blonde's grip tightened around her hand and a ghost of a smile danced on his lips.

"Well I care, I'll make sure Rowen is okay and you will be out of harms way. Got it, Anastasia?" Jasper said as he learnt down and met her eye properly. Ana nodded slightly and kissed the blonde's cheek. 

"I love you, Jasper." Ana said with a slight chuckle. Jasper grinned and couldn't help but feel lucky to have found someone as precious as Ana. "I love you too, Anastasia." Ana's face burned bright red as she scoffed and removed her hand from his. "Don't make me want to stay here and help, tell me to fall down a hill or something." Jasper chuckled and ran a hand through his hair.

"I would love to tell you to fall, but you already fell for me." Ana shook her head as a smile formed on her face. "Cute, Jasper, really. But I think we best be going." Alice chuckled from the front seat. Jasper groaned but kissed Ana's cheek for the final time. "You're such a mood kill."

"What I do best." Alice retorted with a snicker. Anastasia let out a small giggle but sighed after a few moments. "I love you, stay safe." Ana spoke as Alice started revving the engine. Jasper gave a firm nod and took a step back beside Rosalie. "You too, Anastasia." 

Alice pulled away rather quickly out of the Cullen garage leaving the rest of the Cullen family behind. Ana grabbed onto Bella's hand as Bella did with Ana. Their fingers laced together for support, Bella rested her head on Ana's shoulder. 

"We'll be okay, we're going to be safe. Charlie and Rowen will be safe." Ana commented reassuringly to Bella. Though Ana was trying to reassure herself more than Bella.

Alice opened the door to the room the three would be staying in till the rest of the Cullen Clan could lead James and Victoria else where. Ana gripped Bella's hand as the two walked in behind Alice. "Are you sure that they won't find us?" Bella asked cautiously.

Alice nodded and took a seat on the sofa that had been planted on the carpet of the room, Ana took a seat beside her and yanked her phone out of her pocket. She sighed as she scrolled through her seemingly never ending contact list until she wound up on his number.

Anastasia: Can we talk?

Ana looked back up to see Alice on her phone also whilst Bella started to unpack. Within seconds of looking up, her phone had vibrated.

Paul: So you can embarrass me more? Whatever you have to say, I don't want to hear it.

Anastasia: I'm sorry, okay!? I didn't mean it to come out like that, I mean it. 

The brunette flicked her head up once more to notice Alice's eyes had glazed over. "Get me a pen and paper, now!" Alice yelled at neither of them in particular. Bella quickly grabbed both and placed the pen in her hand. 

"What is it?" Ana asked as Alice started to draw a picture. After a few moments a clear image was on the paper. A room full of mirrors. "That - that looks like my old ballet studio." Bella mumbled. Alice shook her head quickly and looked at Bella with wide eyes. "You use to do ballet here, in Phoenix?" Alice asked in confusion.

Bella nodded whilst Alice shook her head. "He changed course, he figured it out. He's coming to Phoenix, I'll check us out." Alice said as she quickly dashed out of the room. 

Paul: I'm calling you.

Within seconds of opening the message, Ana's phone rang.

"Hey." She mumbled down the line as she scratched the back of her neck. 

"What is it, Anastasia?" Paul's voice seemed somewhat scratchy down the line, as if he had been crying. 

"Have - Have you been crying!?" Ana exclaimed down the line as she shot to her feet, in that moment Bella got a call from who she only assumed was Edward.

"No-"

"Paul. Have you?" Ana pushed, her tone firm and steady. 

"Yes, okay! I have. Why would you care anyway? I don't know why you would." Paul mumbled down the line causing Ana to scoff. "I care so much about you, Paul! Can you really not see th-" Ana cut herself off as she stared at Bella's shocked expression. "Anastasia?" Paul questioned down the line, his voice laced with concern.

"Paul, I am so sorry but I have to go. I'll call you later, I promise." Ana spoke quickly, despite her apology Paul scoffed. "Why aren't I surprised." That said the line went dead. Ana shook her head and dropped her phone onto the couch before rushing over to her best friend. 

"Bells, whats happened? Why do you look like someone's died?!" Ana exclaimed as she placed both hands on the brunettes shoulders. Bella sighed as tears filled her eyes. "That was my mom - who I thought was my mom."Bella started as Ana's eyebrows furrowed in confusion.

"He said if I - we don't go to my old ballet studio he's going to kill my mom." Bella said monotonously. Ana dropped her hands and turned her head, she licked her lips before facing Bella one final time. "I hate to ask this of you-"

"I can do it, I will do it."
