“This is where we keep our most valued possessions. I assume by your expression you like it. This is what happens when you have passion for collection and limitless time and energy at your feet.” He looked around the room smiling.

“Why did you bring me here?” I asked. While it was indeed impressive he had yet to tell me the reason he brought me here.
“Well with all the events that have happened recently I shamefully forgot to send dear Bella a wedding gift. Luckily I received an invitation to the wedding that reminded me of that over sight. I would like you to assist me in choosing a gift from in here. I was thinking a piece of jewelry would be nice.” He smiled. I felt a knot in my stomach when I thought of her and the rest of the Cullen’s. I really missed them…I stopped myself from thinking of them, it was too painful. I would most likely never see them again.

“Why do you need my assistance with this. Surely you are capable?” I asked emotionlessly.
“I would like a woman’s opinion though. It seems no matter how many times I see into the minds of the opposite sex I can never fully grasp or understand how you think. I’m guessing your intuition is something you’re born with and can’t be learned.” He laughed a little at his comment. I resisted the urge to roll my eyes.

“Why me? Surely another could help you, perhaps Heidi.” He seemed determined to bring up things that are painful to me, like the Cullen’s. I swear he got a kick out what he is doing to me, flaunting them in my face while I’m trapped here. I had a feelign he had waited for Felix to leave so he could corner me when i’m alone. I loathed his very being.
He looked at me. “Because you know Bella and the other’s do not. You should have a decent understanding to what she may or may not like. Just browse around and when you find something appropriate, anything in the room, then bring back here where I will be waiting. It would please me immensensly if you assisted me.” He indicated for me to go ahead of him into the room. I felt that familiar urge to obey, the urge that no matter how many times I fought always won.

“Of course master.” I sighed heavily but walked ahead into the shelves. There were thousands of pieces of jewelry but so far nothing seemed right. I shut my eyes for a moment as I tried to remember Bella’s face more clearly but it was difficult. I saw her brown hair and pale skin but her features were out of focus. This was so frustrating! I continue to walk and passed by a row of books, contained securely in glass cases. I saw a Guttenbuerg Bible and various other pieces, many in languages I did not recognize. I was certain that the academic community would be ecstatic to get their hands on these pieces.

I left the books and continued down another hall of shelves. After a few minutes something caught my eye. On one of the lower shelves lay a small ancient wooden chest with ornate scrollwork and was adorned with gold wiring. The domed lid was inla!d with fragments of mother-of-pearl. The lower rim sparkled with various gem stones, each a different colour. I bent down and opened the lid delicately. Inside, cushioned in a pillow of black velvet, was a burnished gold necklace. The chain was thick, small and was scaled like the underside of a snake. Attached to it was a round diamond the size of a gold ball.

I wasn’t entirely sure if this suited Bella but it was so breathtakingly gorgeous it seemed a shame to have it stay down here for all eternity. Besides, nothing else caught my eye, nothing in here was screaming Bella except for the books but Aro insisted on jewelry. I closed the lid and carried the box back to the entrance where he waited, his hands behind his back.

“I see you have made your selection. Lets have a look!” He said enthusiastically. He held out his hand and I placed the box quickly into his palms, being careful not to touch his skin. He examined the chest and smiled as he opened the lid. “Ahhhh. I remember this piece. I bought it off King John himself, as well as many others, when he pawned most of the crown jewels in the 13th Century. Oh the memories this brings back!” His clouded eyes looked ahead, out of focus, for a moment as he reminisced. When he came back he smiled. “Excellent choice, a beautiful piece most worthy of young Bella. Thank you, I shall arrange to have this sent in the coming days along with our congratulations.”
“Can I go?” I said impatiently, I didn’t want to be in his presence any longer than I had to.
