Angela twitched as the silence continued, her eyes snapping up to the clock and then back to the still solemn vampires once more. Her hand curled and uncurled in nervousness. She was alone, Esme was locked in her study and Carlisle was sitting at the dining room table with his head in his hands.
Emmett and Rosalie were never that close to her and Alice was… gone…
Tears prickled at her eyes as everything started to hit her. Edward was gone, he used her and… and…
“Crying does not help,” A voice murmured and her eyes shot to one of the blondes, one that Carlisle had introduced as Tanya. “It will ease the pain for little time and then it will hurt just as much when you are done.”
“I cannot help it, I… he…” she started before breaking down into sobs, unable to say her pain. “I want to go home.”
“I’m afraid you cannot, with the danger of the Volturi and then Maria it would be unwise to let you leave.” Eleazer sighed, his golden eyes dark. “I did not think that we’d meet you like this with the betrayal of Edward and the death of Alice.”
“She could go to the reservation; those mutts of hers will keep her safe.” Rosalie informed with distaste. Angela perked up at the proposition, the chance to see Jake and Embry… the pack. She hadn’t seen them since school finished and she moved in with the Cullen’s.
“We have a treaty with the Quileute’s, several of their men turn into wolves. Angela is friends with several of them.” Carlisle explained tired, his golden eyes flat as he cast a look up to the celling where his mate sobbed.
Peter shook his head and tapped his temple. “No, it would be a bad idea.”
“Why, they can meet me at the border!” Angela spluttered out, ignoring the snort.
“Little human, you reek of vampire.” Amun explained roughly. “We smell different than those you know.”
Several vampires nodded at this. “We smell more of death and blood than those on the animal diet and none of us wish to face wolves, even if we outnumber them.”
Sadness welled up once more as Angela slumped defeated, there were so many things she didn’t know and so many things that she should have known. The more she thought the more she realised that she knew very little about the world her so called mate dragged her in, she barely knew the rules and she didn’t know about that.
What more did they keep from her?
Would she have stayed away if she knew all she knew now back then?
The answer would be yes, she would have escaped and stayed far away from Edward Cullen. But something deep down within her knew that even then she would not have escaped him, she would still be sitting in this very spot.
A lone human amongst the vampires.
