“Try searching for a blind spot, not the easiest thing I’ve ever done.” Alice continued. “Plus we had to send back key witnesses, like weren’t in enough of a hurry. And then keeping my eyes open all the time in case you decided to throw me any more instructions. At some point you’re going to have to tell me what exactly is in Rio.” Rio? “I nearly had a heart attack when I saw Anna and Felix gathering Volturi witnesses and tried to think of a way to rescue her from that.”
Alice voice was rising now as she took a deep breath. “Before any of that, I had to try and see every trick the Volturi might come up with and give you what few clues I could so you could be ready for their strategy, and I only had a few hours to trace out all the possibilities. Most of all, I had to make sure you’d all believe that I was ditching out on you. And if you think I didn’t feel like a schmuck?” Alice stopped her rant, though it was a highly justified one.
“Okay, okay! Sorry! I know it was rough for you, too. It’s just that…well, I missed you like crazy, Alice. Don’t do that to me again.”
The tension was immediately broken when Alice’s laugh filled the room. “I missed you too Bella. So forgive me, and try to be satisfied with being the superhero of the day.” Everyone began laughing while Bella hid her face in Renesmee’s hair clearly embarrassed though she shouldn’t be.
Edward went back to analyzing every little detail that went on in the field while I occasionally added my two cents on what went on. I even laughed when Emmett gave Felix and I the title of spies, working from behind enemy lines. No one seemed bothered about our roles in the messed, genuinely happy to have us there, both of us. As the evening continued I could tell Felix was relaxing a but more, perhaps even enjoying their company.
Eventually every single angle was exhausted and smaller conversations erupted. Soon Bella and Edward excused themselves to return to their home, which apparently was a small cabin a few smiles away, to put Nessie to bed. Though I expected they intended on doing a little more than that. When they were out of sight I decided that perhaps Felix and I needed to be alone. We’ve had to adjust to a lot today, him especially.
“You wanna go somewhere for a little while, alone?” I asked him quietly.
We started to make our way to the front door. “We’ll be back a little later.” I told them. They nodded and Esme rushed up to me to give a quick hug and patted Felix gently on the arm. When we reached the door I heard Emmett’s voice.
“Try not to destroy to many trees you two.” He started laughing, not know how right he was, my mind automatically thinking about that first night. “HEY!” he yelled soon after, his body pinned against the nearest wall. I looked back innocently and raised an eyebrow. The others started laughing at the sight, Felix the loudest as he continued to pull me away.
“That was for splashing me.” I said lightly but soon released him. He started mumbling threats and promises of retribution under his breath but I just chuckled. As soon as the two of us hit the night air we took off into the forest running. It wasn’t rushed just a steady and comfortable pace and soon we were miles from the Cullen’s home. We stopped in a small clearing in the trees and Felix immediately pulled me into his arms for a passionate kiss.
When he pulled away he started placing kisses along my neck. My mind was quickly becoming blurry in my mutual need for him but I concentrated so I could make sure he was okay. “How are you holding up?” I asked, my breathing heavy. He stopped and looked me in the eyes.
“Really? I know this is a huge change for you. You sure you are okay?” His eyes were warm when he looked at me.
“I promise, all I need is you and while it was a bit uncomfortable at first it’s already getting better.” I could see he was telling the truth making me smile widely. I started to run my hand gently on his cheek, my other hand gripping the back of his neck.
“So you like them? The Cullen’s I mean.”
“They’re alright.” He shrugged, trying to appear indifferent but I had a feeling he liked them more than he let on. “But enough about of them. I don’t care what that pixi says about sharing, tonight you are all mine.” He all but growled at me and I quickly found myself pinned to the ground laughing happily.
“Fine by me.” I replied quickly before his lips captured mine. His body consumed mine, becoming one in ecstasy and the world was soon forgotten. There was a new dawn for the two of us and I vowed never to waste a single moment of it.
I was home.
