“I’m trying this once and only once.” He grumbled.
“If you want but are you sure you can handle it?” I teased and he growled deeply. At this point I let my senses take over and followed the scent of two bears less than a mile away. Simultaneously we shrunk lower to the ground as we ran. We saw them before they did us and not wanting to be outdone I pulled ahead and took down the larger of the two. I immediately sunk my teeth into the bears juggler and drank deeply as I satisfied my thirst. After a few minutes I had drained the poor creature and stood up, I had managed to keep my clothes clean of blood but my hands and face were covered a bit.
I looked over at Felix as he straightened up perfectly clean and looked at me, the other bear dead at his feet. I felt my mouth open slightly and for a moment I was speechless. His eyes were a light amber colour and frankly he never looked more gorgeous than in this moment, which is saying a lot. I blinked and brought myself back, putting on a smile.
“So, what did you think.” I asked lightly. I couldn’t stop looking at him.
He shrugged, “Not as bad as I thought but it was still gross, I don’t know how you do this every time. I couldn’t keep this up for long.” He shook his head in a mix of amazement and disgust.
“It’s all how you view it. You live to eat while I eat to live, its all in your head. It’s too bad, that colour in your eyes really suits your face.” I said truthfully. “You sure I can’t sway you onto the vegetarian lifestyle?”

He snorted, “I doubt it.” Hmmm, well it wasn’t a no, perhaps there was hope. “Now onto your surprise!” He smiled and then took off into the forest once again but not towards the car. I quickly followed, terribly curious to what he wanted to show me. We ran for a few minutes until he stopped, I looked around but there was nothing here. “Close your eyes and no cheating.” He said sternly. I raised an eye brow but did as he asked. Suddenly I felt his fingers intertwine with mine and begin pulling me along, guiding me, and a familiar shock shot up my arm. I could have told him there was no need, if I wanted I could easily sense the trees around me and avoid them…but I didn’t.

We ran for another minute until I heard the rushing of water and soon I could smell it. The sound kept getting louder until we stopped and he let go of my hand. “Okay, you can open your eyes now.” I opened them quickly and gasped at the sight. I was standing at the edge of a large cliff. The forest spanned out for miles, no ounce of civilization in sight. To my left was a beautiful waterfall whose water crashed into a deep pool below and trailed away down a ravine. The moon reflected off the surface and as I took a few steps towards the edge forward I noticed several plants in the water were giving off the faintest glow, I doubt a human could have seen it. Suddenly I heard Felix’s voice, “Soooo, what do you think?”
“It’s gorgeous! But Felix I’m still unsure why you brought me here. Don’t get me wrong I’m glad you did but I still don’t understand.” I looked back into his amber eyes.

He sighed and shook his head. “Anna, today is November 3rd, you do remember your birthday don’t you?” My eyes widened and he laughed. “How did you not know that?”
“Are…are you serious.” Wow, I was twenty-one today. My guess that we were in October was wrong, well I was still close. I knew my birthday had to be coming up but to be honest I was not planning of celebrating it, or acknowledging it for that matter. It wasn’t like I was growing older anymore. I had viewed it as yet another reminder of what I had lost but for the moment I pushed those thoughts from my mind. “Wait, how did you know when my birthday was?” I was pretty sure I never told him.
“Aro told me.” He said quickly.
“And do you and Aro talk about me often?” I said a little annoyed.
“No.” I gave him an incredulous look. “I swear, he just mentioned it to me a few weeks ago and I decided to do something but if you rather not we can leave.” He meant it but he looked a little crest fallen and immediately felt guilty, I was ruining his gift.
“No no its ok, I’m sorry this is wonderful, thank you Felix.” I said kindly, I really was touched. He seemed to put a great deal of thought into this. It also explains why he let me listen to my music without complaint, another gift.
“Your welcome. I figured you would want to get out of Voltera for something other than hunting or fighting.” He shrugged.
I smiled, he really did know me. “You figured right. So what do want to do?” I asked, curious if he had any more plans for this evening.

“Isn’t it obvious…actually your not exactly observant lately so maybe it isn’t.” He laughed and I growled a little. “We’re swimming.” He walked up to me towards the edge.
“Felix, its November.”
“Vampire remember, we don’t get cold.” He turned his head to look at me and rolled his eyes making me laughed, man I really was slow today. Suddenly he whipped off his shirt and I nearly launched myself at him right there. Normally I wasn’t a shallow person but d--n his body was amazing! I don’t think there was a single inch of his upper body that wasn’t muscle and I memorized every inch of him. I found myself imaging the rest of him. I shook my head, what was wrong with me! I was thinking like some hormone driven teenager.
“I don’t have a bathing suit.” I noticed my voice was a bit higher than usual. I hoped he didn’t detect it.
He surveyed me for a moment in a way that would have made me blush if I was human, “Hmmm, I don’t see a problem with that.” he said as a devilish grin plastered itself on his face.
“Felix!” I hissed angrily. If he expected me to go all natural he was sorely mistaken. He just started laughing.
“I was kidding…mostly. You can swim in that, I packed extra clothes they’re in the car.” He gave me a wink and then suddenly launched himself over the cliff and plummeted down into the water with a splash. His head broke the surface after a minute. “You coming?” He called up. I smiled as I slipped my shoes and socks off quickly and jumped after him doing a swan dive. I cut through the water like a knife into its depths. The water, which must have been way below freezing, felt warm against my skin. I didn’t return to the surface right away. I examined some of the glowing plants as they swayed gently in the currents and there were even a few small fish but they seemed to have gathered on the opposite end of the pool. I swam quickly back to the surface and took a deep breath. While I didn’t need oxygen it was uncomfortable to go without it.
Felix was no longer in the water but above me, “Cannon ball.” He yelled and I looked up just in time to see his massive form curled into a ball smash into the water, splashing me in the face. He swam up next to me with a huge grin on his face, he was far too tempting for his own good. “Having fun?” he asked.
“I am.” I smiled at him and then splashed water into his face for that little cannon ball maneuver he pulled off. He splashed me back and soon a full out war erupted in the water, in which I won. We probably looked like five year olds but I didn’t care and he didn’t seem to either. This continued on for a while as we took turns showing off when we jumped gracefully off the edge. The combination of Felix’s presence and being far away from Voltera created a bubble of happiness I could not ignore.
Eventually I dragged myself out of the water and onto the grass sitting down. He joined me after a second. “Can we just stay here and not go back?” I asked lightly but even I could detect the hint of begging in my voice. I never wanted to return to Voltera.
“I’m afraid not.” He said and looked at me but I couldn’t look him in the face at the moment. I sighed heavily and stared up at the moon. “You’re still not happy at Voltera are you?” he asked sadly. I just shook my head somberly, no point in lying. He put his arm around my shoulders, “I understand.”
“Felix, how could you understand? You’re not forced to be there, a prisoner.” I said sharply. I took a deep breath, I had no right to be angry with him. He was just trying to console me and has been nothing but amazing to me. I didn’t want to ruin the rare moment of peace he had created.
“That’s where you’re wrong.” He said quietly. I looked into his eyes and saw the smallest trace of sadness there.
“What do you mean? I thought you chose to be and stay with the Volturi.” I was confused. Everything he’s told me indicated that he loved being a member of the guard.
He looked away, “That’s true, in the beginning and now, but there was a time when that wasn’t always the case. I was discovered by Aro as you know and when he made the offer I joined willingly and enthusiastically but about seventy years later I wanted to leave. It wasn’t that I was unhappy with them I just wanted to explore the world on my own terms for a while. However Aro didn’t want me to leave and suddenly I felt myself more bound to them than I thought. I didn’t want to disappoint him so I chose to stay. I realized later it was Chelsea who did this. I was angry at first but I learned to move past it. I have made a life for myself there and now I stay willingly, I’m happy.” He paused and looked into my eyes. “I know it’s not the same but I do understand on some level. I just hope that maybe, someday, you can move past this as well and make a life there.” He smiled warmly at me.

It took me a moment to recover not only from his words but his penetrating gaze. I knew I could never make a life with the Volturi, not a complete and happy one anyway. Still, if I just had Felix in my life I knew I would survive. “Would you ever leave, if you could?” I asked.
He shrugged, “I don’t know, maybe someday.” I didn’t respond. Neither of us said anything else for a while, I just leaned against his side in contentment and closed my eyes.
“We should go.” He said softly and I opened my eyes. I could see the sky begin to lighten as the sun slowly approached. I didn’t want to leave, it was so peaceful here with him. I sighed as we stood up, our clothes still wet, and bounded back up the cliff. We retrieved our things and ran back to the car.

We changed quickly in the trees, so as not to ruin the inside of his car, and threw the wet clothes into the trunk. Once I shut the lid he pulled me into a tight hug, “Happy Birthday.” He said gently and I wished I could hold him there forever.
“Thank you.” I said quietly, still unwilling to break my hold around him. In this moment I couldn’t help but hope that maybe someday Felix would leave and bring me with him. I couldn’t deny it to myself anymore, I was in love with Felix. When I acknowledged my true feelings my heart instantly expanded and filled happily with this love and I thought that my heart may just beat again.
Did he feel the same? When he held me like this it seemed like it but I was not prepared to voice my feelings just yet, the fear of rejection to close to the surface. Only time would tell and I would wait for all eternity for him.
