Hi again everyone! Thank you so much for commenting on my last post, and being fãs of it, too!! I appreciate every thing you all have to say, and I'm so so SO excited to know that you guys are enjoying it. Ultimately, it all boils down to the happiness of the readers ^.^ Here's an update! Enjoy! Much amor from me to all of you!
“Watched? por who?” Rosalie placed her hands on her tiny waist and grimaced, “Are you positive about that, Summer?” Summer used her excellent vision to procurar the dense forest that encompassed them, “Yes Rose,” she replied hastily without turning to look at Rosalie, “I’m positive. Let me see if I can pick up their thoughts. Alice, you should--” Alice winked at Summer, “Already on it, sweetheart.” Alice mentally scanned the future while Summer, who was clutching scared Chloe in her arms, spread out her flexible shield in a dome-shape around the northward end of the forest. “I think I have something!” Alice squealed in delight, “So do I!” Summer answered excitedly, “And thankfully, our visitors are definitely not part of the Volturi.” “Yeah, I bet you’ve pried all their big heads a million times to date, eh?” Emmett nudged Summer’s arm playfully with his elbow. She raised an eyebrow at him, “Something like that, Emmett. Alice, what did you see?” Summer was anxious to know whether she was correct about the Volturi’s absence. Alice shined a wide smile at her, “You’re in for a surprise, Summer. You’re about to meet the nicest vegetarian vampire coven in the world, seguinte to us Cullens of course.” Summer stared at her friends’ faces in confusion, but Chloe beat her mommy to the question.
“Who are they?” asked Chloe, shrugging and raising her hands into the air with her palms up. Rosalie giggled in adoration of Chloe. Alice hugged Chloe fondly, looking into the brown-haired toddler’s guileless caramelo eyes, “They’re called the Denalis, little missy, and they’re very sweet.” Summer’s lips tightened, “Alice, are you sure they’re good company to keep, because apparently, they have something against my daughter.” Summer nearly snarled in the direction the Denalis were heading. Alice tugged on Summer’s lower right arm, “Summer, they don’t have anything against your daughter.” The words flew out of Alice’s mouth rapidly. “Long story short, their coven leader, Sasha, was killed por the Volturi for creating a vampire child. Tanya and Kate think that your daughter is also an immortal child, but they won’t think of hurting her. Vampire children are basically the only thing they fear.” Summer breathed a sigh of relief and placed Chloe onto the ground again, but she was still on alert for any sudden danger they might bring. “Well, at least, from what you’re telling me, they’re not quite dangerous.” Alice twirled a strand of Summer’s hair around her finger, “Of course not, silly. Can’t Chloe explain things to anyone else with her shield?” Summer nodded. “Well, then Tanya and Kate won’t have a problem believing that she’s no vampire child.” Alice simpered reassuringly. “Their steps seem hesitant. It appears their fear of the child is vaster than we believe.” Upon hearing Jasper’s challenging comment, the two girls visibly appeared to everyone within two seconds. “And what’s that to you?” Tanya abnegated fiercely. Anger burned in her eyes, not toward the Cullens, but toward Chloe and Summer. Kate maintained a much longer distance from the child, though betrayal dominated her mind and heart. Tanya glared spitefully at Chloe, making Chloe grab hold of her mother’s leg. Emmett and Jasper stepped in front of Summer and Chloe, while Alice gripped Summer’s shoulder and Rosalie seized the angelic toddler in her stone arms. Tanya was the first to speak out of her disgust, “Who is she and how could you all mix yourselves with a vampire child and its creator?” Jasper calmed her mood, “Relax, Tanya. Give them a chance to explain.” Chloe stared up at her mother; Rosalie handed Chloe over to Summer. “Go ahead, sweets,” Summer encouraged her daughter, “tell the girls who you truly are.” Chloe gave scowling Tanya her beautiful blank stare. Innocently, Chloe maneuvered her shield towards Tanya and Kate, encompassing both. The moments flew by, and the group watched excitedly as the expression on the Denalis faces grew from scornful to admiring. “This little one has so much raw talent,” Tanya whispered in a breathless tone. Kate edged toward Tanya’s side, “I agree. We really misjudged her. When Chloe had finished, she beamed proudly at the Cullens, the Denalis, and her mommy. Each of them clapped and cheered Chloe for her amazing success. Though Tanya and Kate were still a little skeptical because Summer and Chloe were Aro’s family, Chloe’s awe-inspiring abilities overwhelmed them. Tanya slowly made her way towards the mother and daughter, “Half-vampires. Huh, can you imagine!” she grinned pleasantly.
“We owe you both an apology.” Tanya continued, “We were much too hasty and prejudiced in our first thoughts of you.” Summer returned Tanya’s gentle smile, “It’s completely fine. You’re impressions about us was definitely justified.” “May I hold the little one?” Kate amiably asked Summer, holding out her hands to reach for the toddler. Surprisingly, Chloe was already reaching her arms out to Kate. Summer consented with a laugh, “It seems you two will become fast friends in no time.” Kate snuggled Chloe closely to her cold chest, “Hello, precious Chloe. My name is Kate, but, of course, you probably already know that.” Everyone chuckled at the comment. “Hello, Kate! My name is Chloe.” Both Tanya and Kate cooed over Chloe, tickling and beijar her from head to toe. “How is Carlisle and the rest of your family doing?” Tanya addressed to Alice, glancing at her momentarily before she continued playing with Chloe. “He’s doing wonderful!” Alice happily guaranteed her, “In fact, he may be on the verge of wondering why we’ve stayed out so late on a simple hunting trip.” Her eyes darted from Summer to her siblings; Jasper nodded in agreement. “Kate and Tanya, please cadastrar-se us for the afternoon!” Alice pleaded, “You all rarely visit here often, and we don’t even know what you’re doing down here in Forks as yet!” Tanya and Kate gazed at each other for a brief moment; with consideration, Tanya consented. “Sure, why not. I think you all will be able to help us as well.” “Great!” Emmett exclaimed, “I finally get to hear who won the match!” All eyes focused on gleeful Emmett, “What? I’m a sports fanatic, shoot me for it.” Rosalie shoved his thick, muscular arm playfully, “Sadly, that doesn’t do the trick, Emmett.” He pretended to feel offended, “Ouch Rose, that hurt right here, babe.” He pouted and pointed to his chest. Rosalie just rolled her eyes and began running back to the house. The rest of them followed at their heels, each laughing at the comical couple.
Emmett burst in through the back door, and Carlisle knew that was his cue. “The teams tied, Emmett.” He called to his son with a chuckle in his tone. “You’re joking!” Emmett hastily dashed up the stairs to research commentaries on the game. Alice hurried through the door soon after, followed por Summer, the Denalis, and the other Cullens. Carlisle raised his head from the newspaper he was still reading. Esme touched her husband’s knee softly and whispered, “Is that Tanya and Kate?” He nodded solemnly. Carlisle hadn’t the faintest clue why they showed up in Forks without notice. Kate handed Chloe back to Summer, “Hi there, Carlisle and Esme!” Tanya and Kate exclaimed at the same time. The two walked over to the couple sitting on the sofa and gave each of them a hug. “Hello, dears.” Esme affectionately kissed both girls on the cheeks. Carlisle graciously welcomed them, “It’s so wonderful to see you all again, Tanya and Kate. It’s a pleasure.” The girls took assento on the sofa facing Carlisle and Esme. “Where is Edward and Bella?” Tanya inquired, though she was mais intrigued por Edward. “He and Bella went for a little hike.” Esme pleasantly responded. Alice, pulling diffident Summer por the arm, took a assento on floor of the living room, seguinte to Jasper, while Summer sat on a nearby recliner. Carlisle’s eyes lit up with concern when he smiled at Summer, “Has she explained?” “Yes, and the news didn’t fail to almost paralyze us,” Tanya smirked, “the child is incredibly gifted.” “Indeed, she is,” Carlisle agreed heartily, “exactly like her mother and father.” “Excuse me,” Kate politely interrupted, turning her beaming countenance toward Summer, “but may I ask you some questions, Summer? I don’t want to pry, but Tanya and I are somewhat puzzled.” Tanya acquiesced to the idea. Summer involuntarily gazed down at her Chloe, who was attentively listening to the conversation. “Of course, Kate. Ask whatever you wish.”
“Well,” she began, “when Chloe conveyed her thoughts to us, she showed us that you are the wife of Aro, her father. She also showed us the dia when you left Volterra with her in your arms. She told us you all left because of her father taking away her freedoms, and you have been gone for three years. How have you managed to elude Aro for so long, Summer.” Summer’s expression became slightly pained. Ugh, this topic again, she thought to herself. Will I ever see peace away from my amor for Aro? Apparently that wouldn’t happen at the moment. “I simply do not stay in one place for mais than a few months. I’ve been with the Volturi all the years of my immortal life, except for the last three, so I know very well how they track down their ‘prey.’” Kate lightly shuddered, remembering the death of her mother, Sasha, por the Volturi. If only she had known how to escape them, too. “How did you become the wife of Aro?” Tanya inquired. Summer explained the same story she told the Cullens the night before. The mais she explained, the mais depressed she became. Running from the amor of her life, whom most vampiros feared, didn’t quite leave her compassionate coração wanting. Tanya eyed Summer’s facial expression; she knew she was becoming uncomfortable, so she tried to change the subject, “So, you’ve kept up your running for so long, Summer? Wow, I admire you, angel! Think you’ll be willing to teach me some time?” Summer’s smiled returned as she looked up at gorgeous Tanya, “Of course, if you have a reason to run from them.” Tanya’s morango blonde curls bounced gingerly while she giggled, “Well, sometimes it’s fun to provoke snobby, controlling jerks, and only girls like you can take control of them.” Jasper joined in the fun for the sake of it, “I guess Aro wasn’t fully aware of all of Summer’s capabilities before he fell in amor with her.”
Carlisle winked at Summer, “I’d say so. Now, Tanya, I have some perguntas for you.” Tanya gave Carlisle a pleased look, “I’m honored, Carlisle. Ask away.” He leaned progressivo, para a frente and folded his hands, glaring at her eye to eye, “It’s a surprise to see you all here, especially after your family refused to offer us help with the newborns on account of Irina. Why did you come here, Tanya, and why isn’t she with you?” Tanya sighed and hugged her knees. Carlisle’s expression remained static and serious. Everyone waited for her response, “Irina’s been missing for a week now, Carlisle,” Tanya didn’t bother to beat around the bush, “and we thought she might have come down to Forks or somewhere nearby. We certainly didn’t expect to run into your family on the way, but when we saw little Chloe, we became apprehensive and decided to observe. She’s our sister Carlisle, and if she’s missing, we’re not completely the Denali coven. My sisters and I have already faced a terrible loss, and I don’t believe we’ll be apt to handle another one. I speak for my entire family when I say that we are sincerely sorry for abandoning you in your time of need, and it would be an outright blessing if you forgave us for our betrayal. Kate and I were not originally going to ask this, but it seems like fate brought us here to meet with you. We haven’t had much luck in finding her; Kate and I aren’t exactly the best trackers. We followed her scent, but lost it all too soon. Will you all agree to, not start a procurar for her, but simply keep your eye out for her or her scent around Forks?” Carlisle straightened up and discerned Tanya’s request. He was sure Edward would vote no to it, but Alice and Jasper consented. Carlisle smiled at Tanya, “I don’t think Rose or Emmett will have a problem with it.” “No, we don’t.” Rosalie gently called from her and Emmett’s room. Tanya gleamed with joy. They must’ve been listening in to the conversation as well, Summer thought. That was probably inevitable for their extensive hearing, though, since everyone was speaking relatively loud for a room full of vampires. Summer played with her daughter’s hair when she began to fuss. Chloe shyly pointed to Alice, and Alice opened up her arms to the toddle lovingly at once. Summer placed Chloe in Alice’s lap and kissed both of them on their heads, “Thank you.” Summer mouthed. Alice winked, “No worries, honey.” She mouthed back. She and Jasper excused themselves from the living room and took Chloe outside to play hopscotch. It was just the Denalis, Esme, Carlisle, and Summer left, and Summer felt quite awkward in her position. She didn’t belong to either of the covens; instead, she belonged to the blood-thirsty Volturi, making her feel very out of place among the “vegans,” though she was technically one of them. Kate finally broke the endless silence, “Well, we had best be going now. You all are very generous people, and that is most definitely noted in our coven.” “Absolutely.” Tanya acceded with her sister. Tanya and Kate gave their friends, including Summer, goodbye hugs and kisses. Tanya held Summer’s hands in hers and gazed into her stunning eyes, “Things will work out for the best, dear. I know it in my coração that it’s true.” Summer pecked Tanya on the cheek, “Thank you.” Tanya patted her hands and, with one last wave goodbye, she and Kate sped out the Cullens back door and into the dreary forest.
Summer caught a faint ringing tune coming from her room upstairs. She gasped, “Excuse me please, Carlisle and Esme. I think someone’s attempting to reach me on my cell.” “Of course, darling.” Esme chuckled, “Run along.” Summer flitted to her room and gracefully unzipped her bolsa to pull out her phone. “Hello?” she answered without any signs of lost breath. “Summer? Hi! It’s Amanda.” Amanda was the pyschic vampire friend who Summer asked to keep watch over Aro’s future. Summer ran her fingers breezily through her hair and shimmered with a dazzling wide smile, “Hey, you! Gosh, I haven’t heard from you in ages. I was beginning to think you forgot about Chloe and me.” Amanda laughed merrily, “Forget you two? How could I?” “True, so what’s up, sweetheart?” “I have some great news this time, Summie! You may want to sit down, because I’m sure you’ll be doing back flips when you hear what I have to say!” There was a long pause. “Go on, Manda!” Summer pleaded. “Okay, so guess what? You’re friends, the Cullens, are out of the picture completely! Aro has totally and utterly dissuaded himself from thinking that they have you. He figured that if they did have you and Chloe, there would have been even the smallest identification of that when he last saw them. So, I’m extremely confident that the Cullens are safe.” “Really? That’s wonderful!” Summer leaned back on her cama with contentment. “Wait!!! There’s mais great news, missy! But first, do you know any shape-shifting humans who can turn into wolves?” Silence stood between the two friends once again. Summer was confused, to say the least. “Summie? Are you okay?” “Uh, yeah, and to answer your question, no I do not. Why on earth would I know a human who can turn into a dog?” “I said a wolf.” “Same difference.” “Ah, so you don’t know as yet.” Amanda was somewhat disappointed. “Then I can’t tell you the news. But don’t freak yourself out; I told you, all my news is good today. Anyways, I need to get going, love. I’ll call you soon. Tell Chloe that Aunt Manda sends her all the hugs and kisses in the world.” Summer was still puzzled, “Will do, Manda. Thanks so much. Bye.” She closed her phone shut and blankly observed the floral pattern on the white bedroom ceiling.
Human wolves? Was Manda going insane? What did human lobos have to do with either her or Chloe’s future? She said not to worry, so I guess I should try to scoot my mind off the topic. Besides, I have to tell Carlisle and Esme the good news! So Summer danced her happy self down to the Cullens’ back yard where everyone was playing ball with Chloe. “Look who decided to cadastrar-se us at last, Chloe.” Esme rested her chin on Chloe’s shoulder and looked towards Summer. Summer waved to her giggling daughter. “Carlisle, I have great news for you.” He gave her his usual fatherly smile, the one where he hugs you with his gentle eyes, “What is it, dear?” “The person who called me was Amanda, my pyschic friend. She said that she’s perfectly certain Aro thinks and will not think of you all as suspects to my absence. He’s finally dissuaded himself of that idea. You all no longer need to worry, extensively.” Carlisle pulled Summer into a warm embrace, “Wonderful!” Suddenly, he looked to Esme; she smiled. Carlisle turned back to Summer, “Now we have a proposal to make, Summer. I know how you’ve thought of yourself as a burden and threat to our family, but seeing as the situation cleared up with Aro, we would all like to know if you and Chloe would agree to stay with us, and officially become a Cullen. Here seems like a reasonable hiding place, for the time being.” Summer gawked, mouth agape. “Now I know you must be joking, Carlisle.” He shook his head, his smile never leaving his countenance. “I’m being completely serious.” “Are you—“ “Oh, for the amor of vampires, Summer.” Alice whined, “Say yes already!” “Yes,” She replied to Carlisle with a laugh in her honeyed voice, “it would be the greatest honor in the world, Carlisle.” Alice ran to embrace her, “Well hello there, Ms. Summer Cullen!” Emmett spun Summer around in his arms, “Welcome to the family, sis! Same to you, Chlo.” He tickled her; she squealed, and placed her cute hand on his cheek, “Bad Emmett!” Everyone broke out in uncontrollable laughter. “That’s my girl!” Rosalie swooped her up and she and Summer cuddled her closely. Summer was still deeply perplexed about the news Manda had refused to give her. She was on the verge of asking the Cullens whether they knew anyone who matched Manda’s description, but she withheld. It was probably nothing, but Manda didn’t seem to think so.
