Head Over Heels

Maya was one of those normal girls just waiting to be noticed. A wallflower of sorts. When the day came that a guy finally noticed her, she jumped to the opportunity of having a friend for once. But what she doesn't know is that she has to face the biggest decision of her life- something that could actually mean just that. What will happen when she finds out that she is being used by Emmett to play the biggest games in her life?


8. Waiting

I woke up to the screeching of car tires. My eyes snapped open and I automatically curled into a ball, making myself as small as possible. I tucked my head under my arms as soon as I saw everyone turn to look at me. "Maya. Maya. What's wrong?" I heard Emmett whisper, protectively wrapping his arms around me. "It's alright. No one's hurt or even close to it. Why did you panic like that?" But I couldn't bring myself to answering the question. Instead, I just bit my lip and shook my head. "I can't say," I whispered. "I told her I wouldn't ever talk about it." Alice frowned. "Told who what?" But I then refused to talk. I didn't want their pity. My mom told me not to talk about my dad's death. So I don't.

A hour of muted whispers between Alice and Bella later, we finally parked. Bella got out and entered a heavily shadowed building, while Alice closed her eyes, trying to call on a vision. Leah completed another crossword puzzle while humming a Christina Perri song under her breath, and Emmett alternated between cracking his knuckles and gripping my hand. We sat there for a few hours, Alice and I frozen, her in patience and I in fear of the fast-approaching future.

Bella finally returned to the car and got in and began rapidly speaking the moment the door shut. She had gone in asking one of the trio of power about Garrett, one of the nomads that she had met last year through the rebellion of the Cullens against the Volturi in order to save Nessie. She had been asking if they knew about his where-abouts when she saw Rosalie peeking out through a crevice, frowning. From this information being shared, Alice took control, reexplaining the plan now. Alice and Bella left a message for the others and then led us into the building.
