I didn’t know how much later it was. It seemed like two minutes. Then I heard Aro’s voice saying, “Bella, wake up. You’re home.”
I opened my eyes. We were in front of the Cullen’s house. I was overjoyed. But wait, there was something off. The lights were off just like when they left. Did they leave?
“Where is everyone?” I asked.
“I don’t know. Their scent is almost four months old,” Aro said.
“They must have went looking for me,” I said.
“Yes-” but he was cut short.
“BELLA!!!!” detto a voice I haven’t heard in a long time.
I turned to the sound and wiggled out of Aro’s arms.
“ALICE!!!!” I screamed. I wobbled over to her.
She caught me in her arms and held me steady. I felt the tears coming down my face.
“Bella, we’ve missed te so much!” she said.
“I’ve missed you, too. più than te can imagine,”
“Hello, Bella,” I heard.
I turned and saw Jasper. I got out of Alice’s arms and hobbled to him. I didn’t care if he didn’t like it. I missed him too much.
“Jasper! I missed te all so much!” I detto throwing my arms around him.
He tensed for a minute, then he hugged me back.
“We’ve missed you, too,” he said.
“Well, are we just chopped liver o something?” I heard another familiar voice.
I turned and saw Seth and Leah.
“Seth! Leah!” I screamed.
I hobbled to them and threw my arms around them. They hugged me close.
“I missed all te guys,” I said.
“We’ve missed you, too,” Leah said. I released them and walked back over to Alice. I grabbed her for support to hold myself up.
“Bella, what did te do to your ankle?” she asked.
“Lorenzo broke it,” I said.
“Why?” she asked.
“He did a lot of things to torture me. I’ll tell te that later. Where’s Edward?” I asked. I wanted to hold him once again.
“He’s out with the others. I’ve already called Carlisle and Rosalie. They have the other Lupi with them. I saw te coming back and we ran here,” she turned to Aro and the Volturi.
“Thank te so much for bringing Bella home,” Alice said.
“You’re welcome, Alice. We should get going,” Aro said.
“Wait, I’m sure Edward would like to thank te in person. He should be home in a couple of hours. Which reminds me,” she detto pulling out her phone.
She held it in her hand. Then it rang. She picked it up.
“Edward, calm down. We went back to the house,” she detto into the phone.
She waited a minuto then said, “Edward! Calm down! Shut up so I can tell you! I had a vision! Now come home now! Everyone else is already here. We’re waiting on you, Tanya, and Jacob. Hurry!” she said.
And as she detto that, Carlisle, Esme, Rosalie, Emmett, the other wolves, and some other people I’ve never seen before came out from the woods.
“I’m not telling. Hurry and get home. I’ll see te in a few hours,” Alice said. Then she hung up the phone.
“Bella!” Esme said.
She ran over to me and engulfed me into a hug.
“I’ve missed you,” I said.
“We’ve missed you, too,” she said.
“Welcome home, Bella,” Carlisle said.
I hugged him too. When I was done Emmett grabbed me into a big orso hug.
“I’ve missed te little sis!” he boomed.
“Emmett…..can’t breathe…… OW! Pain!” I screeched.
I had forgotten about my ribs. They were hurting now.
“Sorry, Bella. What’s wrong?” Emmett asked.
“I think my ribs are broke,” I said.
“Bella, we need to check those out along with that ankle,” Carlisle said.
I nodded. I looked to Rosalie. She was actually smiling at me.
“Hey, Bella. We’ve missed you. All of us. How are te doing?” she asked.
“In pain. I missed te all, too,” I said.
What she did successivo shocked not only me, but everyone else. She smiled and hugged me. I hugged her close then released her.
Rosalie actually hugged me.
“So when is Edward getting home?” I asked.
“In a couple of hours,” Alice said.
I nodded and looked at the other people I’ve never seen before.
“Oh! Bella, these are the Denali’s. Our cousins. This is Eleazer,” Carlisle detto motioning to a male with black hair.
“And his Carmen,” he detto pointing to a caramel, long haired girl.
“And Kate,” he detto pointing to another caramel.
“Nice to meet you,” I said.
“It’s nice to meet you, Bella,” Kate said.
“Tanya, Jacob, and Edward should be here sooner than I thought. Edward just had to get home. He should be here in 5.…4.….3.…..2.….1...” Alice said.
Then I heard, “Now, Alice tell me what’s going on.”
