I think I was the first one to act. I raced through the house but Dad and Grandpa quickly overtook me. They knew where to go and we raced up another flight of stairs and into Jasper and Alice’s room.
Glass was all over the floor and Emmett was nowhere in sight. We all paused and listened. With my new vampire hearing, I heard three sets of feet running through the woods just north of the house. Without hesitating we all catapulted ourselves one by one out of the broken window and landed on the ground. Jacob shifted and I stayed by him as we ran to catch up.
We were virtually silent.
We heard one of them turn around and start running back towards us. It was Emmett.
“He took her!” Emmett yelled as we continued running.
“Who, Emmett?” Grandpa asked, confused.
“Alec! I don’t think he’s alone either,” he answered.
We slowed down. We weren’t ready for a fight—not with the Brotherhood or the Volturi. Grandpa turned around and we followed him back to the house. We didn’t know what to do. We all found something to do in the living room. Aunt Rose and Alice sat down together on the couch. Gran and Grandpa stood near the door with Mom and Dad. Uncle Emmett sat on the arm of the chair next to Rose and watched the game on TV and Jasper was hovered close to Alice, just watching her.
I sat on the loveseat with Jacob after he got dressed. I snuggled close to him and kissed his chest. I loved the new smell of my Jacob; it calmed me down a bit. He rubbed his cheek against my head. We were all tensed and ready for anything. I don’t know how long we all stayed like that. The light of day left and the calm of night took over. Night sounds came in through the open back doorway. Owls hooted and wild wolves howled. Jacob perked up a bit at that but stayed seated and wrapped his arms around me tightly. Alice gasped and we all snapped to attention. Her eyes were glossed over and she was staring, open mouthed. Jasper bent down next to her.
“Alice, what is it?” He said, worry embedded in his voice.
Alice’s Point of View:
Everything was foggy but I could discern a bridge and a sign. It was dark; nighttime in the middle of the woods. No sound. I saw Renesmee and Jacob kissing. A flash of light and Renesmee was on her back in pain. Jacob yelled and he was on the ground too. Then, I saw Amelia and a man I didn’t know off on the side. Jacob was still human for some reason. Then the vision was gone. I snapped back to relativity and looked over at Renesmee and Jacob.
“Damn. I lost it,” I said, closing my eyes and concentrating. I lost myself in my mind, trying to get the vision back.
Back to my point of view:
I looked at Jacob and disentangled myself from him. I walked to the door and smiled at my parents as I passed them. I stepped outside and relished the soft night air against my skin. I heard my mother from inside whisper not to go far. I nodded and walked to the tree line.
It was quiet, I would be able to hear anyone coming. I breathed in and out slowly. This was all my fault. If I had never been born none of this would be happening. I heard someone behind me and turned quickly to Jacob coming towards me with his hands in his pockets. I smiled. He didn’t look convinced. He walked towards me and pulled me into his chest. I wrapped my arms around him and sighed. He pulled back and held my head.
“What’s wrong, Nessie?” he whispered, making me look at him.
I shook my head. “All of this is my fault. Why should you all of you risk yourselves for me? I don’t want any of you to get hurt! Especially you, Jacob. I-I . . . ” I stopped, looking away. I focused on him and tried out my new ability. I would die if anything happened to you, my love.
He gasped. And then he kissed me roughly, pushing me back against a tree. I pulled him closer and kissed him back with everything I had. He tangled his fingers in my hair and I sighed into him. He pulled away, laying his forehead against mine. As our breathe calmed, he began stroking my cheek affectionately.
“I love you with all my being, Renesmee Carlie Cullen. I won’t let anything happen to you. And nothing is going to happen to me, either. We are going to stay together. You’re my everything. If you live a century, I hope I live to be a century minus one day, so I never have to live without you. I just couldn’t do any of this without you. That’s why I will fight for you,” he told me, staring into my eyes. I let the tears fall then. I kissed him again. That’s when we heard laughing.
“Isn’t this sweet?” a familiar voice said.
A flash of light and we were knocked back, a good thirty yards apart and I heard Jacob yell in pain. I was on the ground for less than a millisecond and then I was up and looking around. Jacob was getting up, holding his arm. I looked at him in concern but he nodded as if to say he was okay. I nodded back and continued looking around. Amelia and a man were farther in the woods watching. The bitch was smiling. I started towards her as she took a running start at me.
“This ends now,” I growled and lunged for her throat.
