“I’m surprised you chose a beach locale for our honeymoon,” Bella said as she lay on the teak chaise lounge. Her eyes were covered by large sunglasses. “With your injuries, I’d figure you want to stay out of the sun.”

“I am out of the sun,” I said, from my spot underneath a palm umbrella. I also had on a t-shirt, hiding my scarred back. I knew I was destined to have a ‘farmer’s tan’ for the rest of my life, or until I could be more comfortable in my own skin. I was fine with Bella seeing me. She loved me, accepted me for who I was and never judged me. Granted, she still felt like my scar was a cruel reminder of my ordeal. She would look at it, with anger in her eyes, but she’d calm down when I reminded her that I was okay, alive and so very much in love with her.

“Well, regardless, I’m happy we’re here. When I looked at the weather in Chicago, I saw that it was a whopping two degrees as the high,” Bella giggled, looking at me. “I took a picture of our villa and sent it to our family.”

“What did they have to say?” I snickered, closing my book and quirking my lips into a crooked grin.

“I got a lot of texts of middle fingers and fuck you’s,” Bella answered, picking up her magazine and flipping through it. We’d been on Turtle Island in Fiji for almost two weeks.  The first couple of days, we made love and recuperated from the nearly twenty-four-hour flight. We were staying on the island for a month, staying in a secluded villa. We only interacted with the employees when we decided to go to the main resort for a meal or for any of the planned activities, like zip-lining, horse-back riding or scuba diving.

“You’re poking the bear, Bella,” I laughed, getting up and slipping my legs into the warm water of our private pool. “Emmett hates the cold. He’d rather eat himself out of house and home and hibernate during the winter.”

“What about you?” she asked, sliding into the water, swimming between my legs. I eased into the water, holding her in my arms. “Hmmmmm?”

“I’m like Emmett. I’m not a fan of the cold, but I don’t want to hibernate. Instead, I find ways to keep my mind occupied. Have you ever skied?” I asked. 

“Edward, I can barely walk on flat surface. You think strapping some wood on my feet and sending me down a mountain would be wise?” she giggled. “I’d probably break my neck.”

“I think you’d like it,” I said, untying her bikini top.

“What are you doing?” she asked, arching a brow.

“Heaven forbid you get tan lines, baby,” I said, removing her bikini. I ran my fingers along her spine and moved my hands to her breasts.

“You just wanted to see my tits,” she smiled. “But, my cooter is sore. Too much love-making.”

“I’m sore, too. I’m old,” I laughed. “But, that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy the view.”

“Perv,” she said, turning around and leaning against me, her legs floating up and her nearly naked body glistening in the warm water and the sun. “But, you’re my perv.”

“Damn straight,” I said, cupping her breasts.

“We needed to create a diversion,” she squeaked as the ice moved from my hand and spread to her neck. “Separate you.” I shot a look to Emmett. He ducked out, pulling out his cell phone. With my hearing, I could listen to Emmett speaking to Alice and his voice becoming more anxious. “It worked. We got what we wanted. My death will not be in vain.”

“You truly are mad,” I hissed, completely freezing her head and nodding to Bella, who shot a fireball at her, engulfing the female vampire immediately. She exploded and another pile of ash was on the floor. Emmett came inside, his eyes wide. “What?”

“Carmen, Marcus and Rose … they were taken outside of the legal aid office,” Emmett said, his eyes wide and fear enveloping him. “My mate … they took my mate.”

Hearing the pain in Emmett’s voice, Bella walked over to him, placing her hand on his bicep. She looked at me, her mind open. I’m taking him back. Will you be okay? She asked.

“I will, Bella. Be safe,” I whispered. I love you, sihrena. She smiled sadly and closed her eyes. I felt her power explode, almost filling the room with energy. When she opened her eyes, they were pure flames and a breath later, she was gone. “We need to go.”

“You should have gone with them,” Peter chided.

“I don’t know if Bella could have handled two extra people while blinking. We can argue about it or we could leave,” I spat. Charlotte took my hand and glowered at her mate. We made our way back to the car and drove to the airfield. Part of me wanted to transform into that ice dragon. I could get home in a matter of an hour or so, but I didn’t trust myself or my transformation skills. The plane was fueled and we sat down, taking off to Seattle. I closed my eyes, trying to feel Bella, but distance made my connection to her waver. I could still feel her emotions, but only strong emotional changes. Fear was the most predominant emotion, along with concern and exhaustion. As we got closer, I could hear her thoughts, fragmented and disjointed until we landed. I looked at Peter, changing into a falcon and once the door was opened, I flew out and to the castle.

Once the castle came into view, I changed into my fae form, landing softly in the back and making my way inside. Emmett was sitting in the living room, with Tanya, Garrett and Kate next to him. “Where’s Bella?”

“She’s resting,” Kate answered. “Where are Peter and Charlotte?”

“Still at the airfield,” I replied. “I kind of left without them. I flew here.”

“As a fae?” Garrett asked.

“No, as a falcon. I only changed into my fae form when I was within the magical protection of the castle. Have you turned on their tracking chips?” I replied. “Carmen, Marcus and Rose?”

“Jasper is tracking them now. We need to discuss the plan to save them, but sacrificing them would be an acceptable loss,” Garrett said. I shot him a look. “Or not.”

“This ends here. No further! Aro and his band of monsters are going to meet their fucking fate,” I sneered. “We need to make a plan to save Carmen, Marcus and Rosalie. With those animals, we need to work quickly. Get everyone who’s here, any creatures who are willing to go into battle, to meet at the castle within in the hour. I’m going to check on my mate. She needs me, my strength.”
