Chapter 6! :D Thanks so so much for reading, everyone! Любовь y'all to bits <3 Enjoy!!!!
Anakin stared out towards the beautiful, glistening Italian shoreline as the sun was peeping right above the horizon. He couldn’t help but think about Summer and how disappointed she would be about all of this, but something inside him just seemed to take over the good, and somehow his choice felt right. It was like he could hear Aro’s voice quietly dictating every Переместить he made, even though he never knew his father. The lure of the Volturi and their liberal way of life was simply too overpowering for such a young vampire. Anakin was certain that he wouldn’t be allowed to see Summer for at least a decade или so. The elders were positive that Summer and the Cullens would never find them if they kept moving. After hearing about his father from the Вампиры who knew him the longest, Anakin сказал(-а) yes to joining the Volturi. That’s when the plans began.
In order to protect Anakin from his true family, Marcus unveiled an ancient and intricate system of underground tunnels which led to various parts of Italy, Austria, and Switzerland. Since the Volturi made this getaway method many years ago, each tunnel led to old and forsaken living spaces that were located safely away from any large human populace. Hunting would be easy for them if they travelled among the rural areas of Europe; European media rarely pays attention to what happens in the countryside. Right now, they were in the ruins of an sizable but abandoned пляж, пляжный house, but they weren’t planning to stay here for еще than three days. Marcus’ plan was to keep shifting their location and masking their scents for a месяц или two. The goal was to make Summer run out of hope and time to find Anakin. But the change of events didn’t stop there, though. Ever since Summer handed him over to Marcus and Caius, it seemed as though he had become their prized possession, thus, for the first few days, they wouldn’t let him go anywhere without a guard watching his back. All these events might have felt too overwhelming for Anakin if Jane wasn’t in the picture. She was the only луч, рэй of sunshine in this entire situation. She was one of the main reasons why Anakin could not say no to joining them. “Anakin?” Jane’s soft voice travelled through the seabreeze to Anakin, who was sitting just a few feet away from the lone вилла that stood on the sand.
Anakin smirked and whispered his reply in a sarcastic tone of voice, “Too scared to come out here, Jane? I thought Ты were the toughest little vampire out there.” Jane smiled and slowly walked back into the house, hoping that Anakin would turn around to see if she was still there. Sure enough, Anakin turned around when he heard her walking away. In less than a second, she instantly ran out the door and jumped straight at him. Obviously in shock, Anakin swiftly reached out his arms to catch her. He landed flat on his back with giggling Jane in his arms. Sand went flying everywhere from the collision. The two youngsters laughed as silently as they could. Anakin stroked back Jane’s gleaming blonde hair. He smiled from ear to ear, “What on earth is wrong with you? You’ll get us into some major trouble.” Jane shrugged casually and let out a light laugh, “What could they possibly do to us? After all this trouble to get Ты to Присоединиться the Volturi, Marcus and Caius would definitely not throw Ты out just like that, and if Ты claim to be in Любовь with me, everyone will turn against them for banishing me. Besides, we can’t possibly fit into society without causing a lovely little disaster on those pathetic humans, especially since you’re a newbie to our feeding habits.”
With pure satisfaction, Jane stared into Anakin’s blood red eyes; he was no longer a vegetarian vampire. Anakin had truly turned evil now, and his growing passion for Jane made it all the еще difficult for him to see that she was eagerly turning him into a monster. Evil clouded his mind and memories, and Jane was еще than happy to encourage it. She secretly wanted to destroy everything in his life, starting with his loathsome mother. Anakin couldn’t help but falling for her, and Jane happily used her attraction to seduce him. The two seemed to forget everything around them. Anakin hugged Jane tightly and kissed her on the cheek. She smiled and, with a hint of anxiety, leaned in closer to him. The couple had never kissed before, but the attraction was still there. Jane slowly closed her eyes and leaned in till she was just an inch away from his alluring stone lips, but Anakin withdrew with a sigh. Jane’s eyes widened, “Anakin,” she pouted, “what is it? Why’d Ты pull away?” She rested her head on his strong chest. Anakin tried not to look at her for fear that she would see right through his thoughts. He watched the розовый clouds roll by slowly as night began to fall on the beach. One by one, little glimmering stars shone across the darkening sky.
Jane impatiently tugged on his black shirt, “Anakin, talk to me!” Anakin’s expression was pained, “I…I ca—“ Before he could finish, Anakin heard familiar footsteps approaching. He gasped and sat up immediately, gently placing Jane beside him on the white sand. He put his finger to his lips as a sign that he and Jane should act nonchalant. The elders had made it clear that Anakin wasn’t to be disturbed with any other business besides learning the ropes. If the elders found out about Anakin’s feelings for Jane, the two would certainly be separated for the time being, which was a rather unpleasant thought for Jane. Anakin’s thoughts on the subject were still mixed; he had only known her for a couple of days, and with all the commotion, he had a hard time sorting his thoughts feelings. The two сказал(-а) nothing еще to each other; they only observed the dimmed night sky that was set above them. Finally, the footsteps ceased, and the door of the house opened noiselessly. “Anakin. Jane.” Demetri hissed at them almost inaudibly. He, too, was skeptical about coming out of doors often. Anakin and Jane quietly rushed inside, even though something in Anakin’s сердце was tugging him back outdoors, back towards the horizon, and back towards his real family.
~*Back in Volterra, Italy*~
Summer timidly knocked on the door of study, “Come in, Summer.” A warm, fatherly voice called to her. Summer opened up the door, trying her best to be pleasant. “Carlisle, mind if I have a moment alone with you?” Carlisle was seated on a lounge chair with a medical book in hand. The room smelled like old, dusty books, but neither of them minded the smell and the hundreds of aged Книги that filled the several bookcases. He gestured to another lounge chair Далее to him, “Be my guest, darling.” Summer took a сиденье, место, сиденья Далее to him. She cleared her throat absentmindedly and straightened her dark blue jeans. She felt Carlisle’s stare like it was boring holes into the side of her neck. She had to say something, but suddenly she Остаться в живых the will to do so.
Carlisle set his book down on a nearby coffee таблица and reached for Summer’s shaking hands, “Anakin is a good boy, Summer, and he means the world to all of us. Although we won’t be able to stay here forever, we can certainly do all that we can in the Далее two days to find him. Please, tell me what Ты want us to do.” Summer choked back a stubborn tear. She smiled half-heartedly at Carlisle, but her eyes expressed true desperation, “That’s just it. I don’t know. I’m sorry to be such a downer but I just don’t know.” Carlisle pursed his lips in thought. He had to something to help his sweet daughter. None of them could leave Volterra without knowing that they at least tried to pursue Anakin. “Well,” Carlisle spoke up after an intense pause, “the only thing we can do is go back to the Volturi’s hideaway during the night, perhaps around 11pm, and scout around the place for clues. We need to ‘turn the place upside down,’ as they say.” He winked at Summer, attempting to life her spirits a little.
She reached out and gave him a big hug, “I trust whatever Ты have to say, Carlisle. If Ты think that will be efficient, then I’m all in.” She pulled away, but Carlisle could tell that she still wasn’t fully convinced anything would work at this point, “Summer?” “Yes?” Carlisle’s gentle golden eyes were solemn and stern, “Even Вампиры make mistakes. Always remember that, dearest.” He kissed her cold forehead and rested his hand on her shoulder. She returned the kiss, “I’ll do my best to keep that in mind. Thank you, Carlisle.” Summer walked to the door but stopped abruptly. She spun around on her heels to face Carlisle once more, “Carlisle, when will we go searching?” “Tonight, if Ты wish, или tomorrow night.” Summer bit her lip; she honestly wanted to go tonight, but asking the Cullens to help her on such short notice wouldn’t be very kind, even though she knew they’d say yes, “Tomorrow night, then?” Carlisle nodded in agreement, “That’s perfectly fine by me.” Summer faintly smiled back at him and turned to leave, but another Вопрос popped into her head.
She turned back again to face her father, “One еще thing?” Carlisle chuckled and looked up from his book, “Of course.” “Where are we going to start looking first.” Carlisle took a moment to think on the subject. His face lit up in realization, “Underground.” Summer furrowed her eyebrows, “But Jake and I looked underground for quite a while yesterday. The area is so small compared to upstairs.” “Just believe me, Summer,” Carlisle pleaded, “Upstairs, Космос is limited, but underground, possibilities are sometimes endless.” Summer shrugged casually, “Okay, Carlisle. I trust you.” Summer left the room and closed the door on her way out. While walking down the hall, she gave deeper thought to Carlisle’s words. “His face was so full of realization,”Summer thought to herself, puzzled, “yet he seemed to be hiding something. I’m not going to pry through his thoughts, though. I just need to trust that he knows what he’s doing. He’s never steered me wrong before. Still….what was he getting at?”
So, did Ты like it? Huh? Huh? :P Thank Ты SO much for reading! I appreciate your feedback oh so very much <3 I wonder why Anakin didn't Kiss her. Poor Summer :( She's so nervous that she can't even think straight. Yikes! Let's hope her anxiety doesn't effect her reasoning as well....
