Chapter 4: I Knew It Was To Good To Be True!!!
After I had a good chat to everyone, Bella called me over to her.
“Let’s go for a walk” she grabbed my hand gently and we walked outside to the edge of the little shimmering river near the border of the forest.
“How are you” she asked
“Great, how about you?”
“Good how is Renee I really miss her”
“Actually she is in Australia at the moment so I haven’t seen her since we moved.”
“Wow that’s amazing” she laughed.
“You and Edward are amazing. I hope me and my boyfriend have a good relationship.”
“You have a boyfriend! What’s his name?” she asked curious.
“No it can’t be. u know that he is a vampire”
“Yea, so u didn’t have a problem with that!”
“It’s not that he is a vampire, it is because he is a part of the Volturi he is a double agent. He spies on different covens.”
“No that can’t be right, he zei he lived with you” I zei confused.
“Yea he did, he was spying on us. Ever since the ....misunderstanding last jaar with Renesmee Aro has been the Fletchers to the covens, but he spies on the Volturi as well. The last I heard he was with Alissa Di Genova one of the Volturi guards”
I was furiated. I knew Zane and I had only been together for 3 days but he could have zei something.”
“Are u alright Steph? I’m not saying u can’t love him but just be careful, If he finds your my sister he might turn us all in to the Volturi” she stared at me seriously and then started laughing.
“What’s so funny Bella” I asked.
“It’s just that we must like vampires because we have both fallen in love with them”
We laughed and decided to go inside. Everyone was chatting and once we got inside Bella flew to Edwards’s side. His eyes went wide and then all of a sudden he was beside Carlisle. They kept swiftly moving on to all the Cullen’s and then Charlie got up.
“I think it’s time to go kid” he whispered
“When they do this it is our queue to go”
“Do what Dad?”
“Go all quiet and walk around the room”
He stopped mid-sentence as Emmett laughed loudly.
“We’re off Bella thanks for having us”
Bella came over and kissed us both on our cheeks.
“Thank u for coming” she smiled and then waved. We quickly left as it was getting dark and Charlie wanted to watch the football game. I unloaded all my stuff and put it in my room. I went to bed early I had such a big day. I didn’t get much sleep but I just lay in my bed looking at the ceiling, thinking about all the things I found out. I finally fell asleep at 3.00 in the morning.
I woke up the volgende morning late so had to hurry to get ready. Once I woke up I got some skinny jeans a red long sleeved overhemd, shirt and my toiletries and had a quick shower. When I got downstairs I found a letter on the table, it said;
Sorry I left early,
There has been some trouble down at the station,
Help yourself to anything, I will be home pagina late so grab
Something to eat. I love you.
I scrunched the letter up and put it in the bin. I quickly grabbed a granola bar and practically swallowed it whole. I ran out to my car and sped off to school. I got to school and the klok, bell just rang so I locked my car, ran to my locker, got my biology and art boeken and ran to first class. I made it just in time as they were walking into class so I pretended I was there the whole time. Mrs Williams my biology teacher was in a bad mood this morning so I quickly sat down. We were learning about Sedimentary, Igneous and metamorphic rocks. It was pretty boring since I hated it. Everyone was being loud so Mrs Williams made us stay in for ten minutes.
I walked slowly to volgende class since I was already late. My volgende class was art and Zane was in my art class. Although I loved him I was pretty disappointed he couldn’t trust me. I walked in and sat at the front because I knew Zane would verplaats and that was my plan. I opened my art book and started sketching his name and mine. He sat down and stared at me.
“Did I do something wrong Steph?” he asked confused.
“Sort of, not really, but yea” I zei stilling looking down and sketching.
“What is that supposed to mean?”
“Zane why didn’t u tell me”
“Tell u what” he was getting frustrated now.
“That u are a double agent for the Volturi” I blurted out in a zuur, zure tone.
Then there was silence.
“How did u know that?”
I couldn’t tell him the real reason-even though I wanted to- without revealing that I was Bella’s sister,
but I loved him too much to keep a secret from him.
“I didn’t it just came to me” I lied
“It couldn’t have just come to you. I hate spying for the Volturi I never have liked it. They already
know that I’m with you.” He looked down.
“Zane I have something to say to u but u have to promise me u won’t tell anyone” I said
“I’m Bella Cullen’s sister”
He gawked and then he stopped breathing.
“What I have been looking for them everywhere. They still live out of town don’t they?”
“Yea I wasn’t meant to tell you” I remembered back to yesterday and what Bella said.
“You can’t tell the Volturi of else half the vampire covens will be killed even my family, who I just got
back I can’t lose them”
“Steph I’m sorry I have to tell them I promise to come back and protect them.”
“If u wanted to protect me u wouldn’t tell them in the first place.”
I quickly got up and every one stared at me as I ran out. I ran to my car and sped off towards the
Cullen’s house. I was starting to regret telling Zane I thought I could trust him. When I got there
No one was home pagina so I sat near the river and curled up in a ball and cried. Now I had put my family in danger and all the other covens too. It was all my fault. As I laid there crying, I listened to all the birds whistling, I could hear the little waves of the river crashing into the rocks. Then someone pulled me up and hugged me. It was Alice I could tell door her spiky hair pokey me in the face.
“Steph it’s alright” she zei soothingly.
“I thought I could trust him” I choked out between my sobs.
“I have endangered u all, it’s all my fault”
“I saw it coming but I thought he would change his mind when he saw u leave.” She was feeling the same as I did.
I couldn’t stop crying, it felt like he didn’t love me that he just wanted my family and I to die.
“The only reason he is telling the Volturi is if he didn’t Aro would kill his family and then keep Zane to be one of the guards. He was going to come back and protect you”
“If he wanted to protect me why would he tell them?”
“He cares about his family to just like I do”
We stopped talking for a moment and I decided to break it.
“Did u tell anyone I was here” I asked worried if Bella found out.
“No, I tried not to” she zei pleased.
“Thanks Alice you’re a great friend”
She smiled and nodded.
“I know” she giggled and then got up.
“I think I should go and tell Bella”
“Look I will tell her u go back to school and talk to Zane!”
“Thankyou” I smiled.
She flew through the forest at eye blinding speed. I got up and walked to my car. It was probably 10 minuten to lunch so I had some time to talk to him.
When I got to school the klok, bell just rang for lunch so I quickly got out of my car and ran to the tafel, tabel in the cafeteria we usually sat at. I sat down before anyone else was in there and tried to pull myself together. Zane, Samarah, Katelyn, Jeremy and Alex walked around the corner and came to an abrupt stop when they saw me. I saw Zane’s mouth verplaats and then he was sitting across from me. I stared at him and bit my lip.
“Zane...I am so sorry, I was just shocked. I didn’t really see your side, but I’m sorry I acted so ridiculously, I love u and I always will. I understand now that u would save your family before saving me” I just let everything on my chest go.
“Steph, listen my family are fast they can save themselves. I will protect you” he lowered his head
“Why a change of mind?”
“I didn’t mean my family when I zei we. I was intending on meaning my family, I had two choices either to kom bij the Volturi of tell them where the Cullen’s were. I decided to tell them but I had a Plan B”
“What do u mean had?”
“You remember Jess, Ash and Arnie, one of them has a power to control minds and that is what they did to you, but they did it while u were asleep so nothing looked suspicious.”
“Who did that?”
“Ashleigh she can control minds to see what she wants to see” he explained.
“What’s going to happen now” I asked shocked
“I don’t know but we must be prepared”
“I know a way we can find out for sure” I smiled a reassuring smile.
“Alice, she can see the future she will tell us if they are going to attack” I got his hand and tried pulling him towards my car. He was like cement stuck the chair he didn’t budge.
“What’s wrong Zane?”
“It’s just they don’t trust me they wouldn’t want to see me.”
I took in his information and stared at him.
“Bella will understand, she knows that I love u she wouldn’t want me to be upset. The vraag is do u love me?”
His mouth dropped and then he stared at me angry now.
“Why would u ask that, I love u meer than any other thing in this universe.”
He scowled and then led me to his car.
“What about my car?”
“I’ll get Samarah to take to your house.” I nodded
We hopped in his car and drove off to the Cullen’s house.
When I got there the house seemed empty, there was no usual light shimmering off the windows and for the first time I couldn’t hear Emmett laughing. I felt there was something terribly wrong so I ran to the house and found the door unlocked, without thinking I ran in then I saw Bella in a corner, someone was holding her back and he seemed pretty strong as he held her back. I saw all the other Cullen’s lying on the floor curled up.
“Bella what’s going on” I screamed across the room. Everyone was staring at me now.
“Don’t even think about it Jane” Bella yelled. I followed her gaze and found a beautiful pale, blonde haired girl facing towards the Cullen’s. I felt Zane’s sweet cool breath on the back of my neck as he stood behind me.
“Jane leave the Cullen’s, they have done nothing wrong”
“Zane, dear u saw what happened that dag they violated the law”
“Jane, I am quite sure u heard Aro, they have done no harm”
“Zane leave us to do our job” she growled at him.
“Your job.....I know who sent u Caius right?”
“Maybe...but that is none of your business” she was annoyed now. The volgende minuut Zane was on the floor. I knew what Jane was doing and I didn’t know what to do. I tried comforting him, but I couldn’t move.
“Jane..Sstop it, stop hurting them” I stuttered.
“Ahh the young one speaks” she snickered.
Zane got off the floor and stood in front of me in a protective guard.
“Don’t touch her Jane” Zane yelled out of his gritted teeth. He was on the floor again and then something hit me in the head, I could hear him calling my name as he writhed in pain and then everything went black.
When I woke up I heard low whispers I tried listening:
“She knows too much we can’t keep her human she will tell everyone. If she is anything like her sister she would be good for our guard. She would be much better then Ranata, she could protect us all without touching us”
“Caius listen to me we could use he but...”
“Marcus I know u want to change her, Aro will be pleased I assure you”
“Fine but it was your all your idea” the one named Marcus joked.
I felt a cool breeze volgende to me, and then he sunk his teeth in my neck. I was so painful, so excruciating, I let out a huge scream. It felt like I was on fire, like my whole body was on fire. Everything was burning. As I lay there in pain the two guys watched me warily. I closed my eyes and tried concentrating on something other than the pain. It was sort of work but the pain was like a firefly in a starless night. It stood out so badly, but I knew I was strong.
“Marcus it’s nearly finished” Caius whispered.
“Go and get Alissa please we will need her as soon as possible.”
I heard light footsteps head towards the door and then the burning returned, making my hart-, hart race a million miles. Then as is beat its last beat the pain was gone like it evaporated into thin air. Then my eyes flew open and I could literally see little particles floating through the air. As I took in my surroundings I saw Marcus of Caius staring at me. I flew off the bed and landed on my feet in the corner of the room.
“Quick Alissa see if it works”
Then I felt a jolt of pain in my head. One of the guys approached me and held his hands up as if to surrender.
“Please, don’t be afraid. I’m Marcus this is Caius and Alissa” he gestured towards them as he zei their names.
“Do u know a guy named Zane Fletcher?” Caius asked.
“No who is he?” I was so confused my voice was different.
“What about Edward of Bella Cullen”
“No, why are u asking me?”
“We are just curious my dear, well done Alissa u did it”
They all laughed in unison. As I looked around I was even meer confused of my new surroundings.
“Where am I?” I asked
“Volterra” Caius responded.
