Alice and Alistair.
It had been several hours since most of the vampires disappeared from the area, eager to be relieved from the temperamental climate of Forks and away from the snowy scene of the dreaded confrontation. The Volturi had long since departed the snowy clearing, but the rest of the vampires who were not native to the area were anxious to leave as quickly as possible, as if to rid themselves of their participation in the almost-crime. Although all lives but one were spared during the event, most seemed to be reluctant to anger the Volturi further and after a hasty goodbye to the remaining Cullens, they journeyed back to their original home-grounds. As Alice climbed up the blond, glazed wooden stairs leading to her bedroom, she almost collided with a shadowy figure descending the steps at the same time she was trying to ascend them. She was confronted with a face full of chest sheathed in a dark brown thermal long sleeve that was eye-level to her petite stature. Her golden eyes traveled upwards to meet Alistair’s quizzical gaze as he stared down at her from his great height. As Alice moved courteously to her left, Alistair mirrored her actions, and they were thus in the other’s way again.
Releasing an amused chuckle from her lips, Alice merely stayed where she was, glancing at the enigmatic vampire with interest. “I’m surprised you hadn’t already left at first notice, Alistair,” she said, her melodic tone friendly. In truth, Alistair was always a puzzle to her, never quite comprehending the tight-lipped antisocial vampire who preferred the company of his bare surroundings, uninterrupted by the bothersome presence of other people. True to his character, Alistair had merely sat out the Volturi’s visit in the snowy clearing, looking out for his own safety as usual. From what she could tell, she’d heard he already left before, when he’d witnessed Bella packing a backpack geared towards Renesmee’s survival, but it appeared he hadn’t totally left if he was still lingering in the Cullen household. She peered at him curiously, her head cocked to the side, as she waited for his answer.
