While I was proofreading this chapter, it made me cry...lol. Enjoy! :]
Gone for Good
“What are 당신 doing here, if 당신 don’t mind my asking?” Carlisle was not about to let him come close to Summer 또는 Chloe without intense interrogation. “I had to come see whether 당신 have some beautiful girls of mine.” Summer’s head spun in circles; how come Manda hadn’t seen Aro coming? She hoped her friend was 안전한, 안전 from the Volturi. Chloe was the only one incredibly pleased to hear her father’s voice. She would have called out to him, but her mother asked her to keep quiet. Carlisle retained his stern glare on Aro, “Why did 당신 suspect that we should have them?” “Well,” Aro’s eyes were amiable, “I know how fond my wife is of you, and she would have, eventually, run to 당신 and your family.” Carlisle’s lips tightened, “Where are they?” He coldly inquired. Aro chuckled, “Who?” “You know who, Aro.” Carlisle spitted out, “The Volturi guard.” Aro folded his arms, “I saw no reason to bring them with me. As long as 당신 took good care of my girls, then I am satisfied.” Rosalie growled, “Don’t believe him, Carlisle!” Carlisle put his hand up to silence her, “Rosalie, I will handle this.” She backed down, but was on the verge of ripping off Aro’s head. “Why should I trust you?” he continued. Aro’s countenance remained deceivingly warm, “Carlisle, Summer and Chloe have been missing from my life for three years.” His tone was pleading, which was odd for him, “You 사랑 your family dearly, as I do mine. I do not care to hurt anyone who has helped them. I simply want them back with me in Volterra, where they belong.” Carlisle shook his head. It seemed as though Aro was speaking the truth. Perhaps Summer’s leaving did instill some respect within him. Summer’s 심장 was still, after these three long years, captivated 의해 the sound of Aro’s mellifluous Italian accent. Sweet memories of him began to overtake her beating heart. The tingling, cool feeling of his caressing touch, the appeal of his stone lips, the thrill he brought to her 심장 with every kiss; everything about him still made her long to run into his arms. Carlisle bent his head in defeat, “Fine, Aro. 당신 appear to be trustworthy, at the moment. I may regret this, though I hope not. Summer, would 당신 come here please?” Summer stood to her feet and sat Chloe on the leather settee. Alice pulled her back 의해 the wrist, “What do 당신 think you’re doing, Summer?” Alice scolded, “You can’t go over there, even if Carlisle asks 당신 to.” Carlisle glanced across his shoulder, “Let her go, Alice.” Unwillingly, Alice set Summer free, pain surfacing in her golden eyes.
Summer walked toward the front door, where Carlisle was standing. Part of her wanted to see Jacob, but the majority of her desired to embrace Aro. Why? She loved Jake, too...was it because Aro had some sort of manipulation over her since he was her husband? That didn’t seem too unlikely. Well, if she pretended to be fully in 사랑 with Aro, at least Jake would be 안전한, 안전 from the Volturi. Her footsteps quickened when she drew nearer to him, her husband, whom she hadn’t seen for three years. The man she cried night after night for, until she met Jake. Finally, there he was; tall and gallant, cornsilk black hair, an attractively angled face, a strong physique, tender eyes filled with utter affection for her, and dressed in his usual sophisticated black suit. Joyful tears were welling up inside her throat. “Aro!” She exclaimed. Upon hearing her beautiful voice and seeing her gorgeous figure, Aro was stunned. She ran towards him, and he threw open his arms to catch her. She clung to his cool neck as he lifted her into the air, spinning her around effortlessly. She hid every thought she had of Jacob so he couldn’t see. Aro’s smile grew from ear to ear, and Summer couldn’t stop giggling. “Il mio amore bello! 당신 will never know how much I’ve missed you.” “And I’ve missed 당신 every day, darling.” She replied, sounding breathlessly happy. It was a lie, but she was compelled to say it. Still holding her, he kissed her neck. She took his face into her hands and rested her forehead on his. She leaned in closer to him, and when their lips connected, both found what they were searching long and hard for, each other. His lips and breath fondled with hers, igniting the passion between the couple. She pulled him nearer, his fingertips playing along her lower back. She ran her hands through his hair and breathed him in, 키싱 across his jaw. “I 사랑 you,” he assured her softly, “even while 당신 left me, my 사랑 for 당신 never faded.” He tried his best to pull away from her gentle kisses. She, too, struggled to keep her composure, “There’s someone who’s been waiting very patiently to see her daddy again. Chloe, come here, sweetheart.” Chloe sped over to her embracing mommy and daddy, joy written on every inch of her flawless face. Aro stooped down to cuddle his little three 년 old girl, “Look how you’ve grown, angel!” His voice dripped with sensitivity. Chloe hugged her father’s neck tightly with her small, fragile hands. “I missed you, daddy.” He gave her a loving 키스 on the cheek, “I’m here now, dear, and I’ll always be here with you.” Summer was still skeptical of Aro. How would she know for sure that he had changed? And what about Jake? Now she wouldn’t have a chance to tell him she was sorry. Would this situation kill him as much as it was killing her? Since they were standing outside, she examined the different smells around them to validate what Aro had told Carlisle. None of the Volturi’s smells caught on to her, so she had to accept her husband’s word. There was no way to fully assume the Cullens would live until she left with Aro. That also plunged a 칼, 나이프 into her aching heart. She had grown so fond of this family in such short time, and, in one moment, it was all over and done. Aro would probably never again allow her to step foot outside the Volturi’s hideaway without a guard walking 의해 her side.
She choked back the tears once more. Aro turned to face her, “I suppose 당신 know why I came, don’t 당신 sweetheart?” Summer faked a smile, “Yes, I know. Are 당신 ready to go, Chloe?” Chloe beamed at her daddy, “Yes, I am!” Summer took her from Aro, “Come, then. Let’s go say goodbye to everyone.” Her daughter’s happiness became frustration, “Mommy,” “Yes, love?” “We’ll be able to visit the Cullens another time, right?” Summer’s mouth twitched…she wasn’t positive about that. “I think that will be possible sometime, dear.” The Cullens outlined Summer’s every step in agony. It would be difficult to part from her and Chloe, who were practically their family now. No words were spoken, but silent tears filled the air. Rosalie, Esme, and Alice cuddled Chloe for the last time, while Summer embraced Carlisle, Emmett, and Jasper. “We’ll miss 당신 every day, dear.” Carlisle whispered into her ear, “I’m so glad we found each other after all these years.” “You’ll truly be missed, Summer,” Jasper furthered, “by all of us.” Emmett grabbed her petite figure into a snug embrace, “Take care of yourself, little miss. You’re an awesome sister, and I’ll definitely be missing you.” Summer laughed lightly, “I’ll miss 당신 too, Emmett. I’ll miss each of you.” It was the guys’ turn to say goodbye to Chloe. Esme was the first to hug Summer, “You have been such a joy here, dear. We 사랑 you, and I hope 당신 come visit us very soon.” Esme’s voice communicated her unseen tears. Alice held onto Summer from behind, “Life won’t be the same without you, sis. I’m really going to miss spending time with you.” Summer turned around to snuggle her, “Alice, these last few days with 당신 have been some of the happiest in my life.” Her voice broke slightly, “We’ll see one another soon, but rest assured I will never forget you.” Alice furrowed her eyebrows, “You’re not packing, Summer? How are 당신 going to get back to Volterra? You’re leaving all your things with us?” Summer smirked at Alice’s concern, “We’re travelling on foot, I suppose. Chloe and I don’t need those things, Alice. We have packed wardrobes back home. So yes, all my things are now yours. Enjoy, sis!” Alice giggled to lighten the mood, and Rosalie joined in, “In case 당신 haven’t heard it enough times, I and the rest of my family will miss 당신 and Chloe terribly, Summer. 당신 brought us much joy with your temporary stay here.” Summer smiled at Rosalie, “You’ve been very helpful to me, Rose. Thank 당신 for everything.” She kissed Summer’s forehead, “No trouble at all.” Summer wiped away the obstinate tear that decided it wanted to stroll down her blushing cheek. “Tell Edward and Bella I said goodbye. I regret not being able to see them.” “We’ll be sure to tell them, Summer.” Esme guaranteed her. With one final group hug, Carlisle handed Chloe over to Summer. Summer stepped outside and took hold of Aro’s affectionate hand. “Would 당신 like me to carry her, love?” Summer endeavored to keep a smile on her face for him, “Sure, honey. Thank you.” “Come here, dear.” He cooed to his precious daughter. Chloe climbed onto her daddy’s back. The Cullens crowded around the front door, waving goodbye to the family. Aro put his arm around Summer’s waist, pulling her to his side. She wrapped her left arm across his back. They gazed into each other’s eyes affectionately, and the couple set off running into the night, leaving the Cullens and the world of Forks, WA behind. However, there was still a dilemma the Cullens had to solve: how would they explain this to Jacob, and would he take drastic measures to claim her back?
