Nothing's Gonna stop us now

How is the guard going to react to Amelia, lets find out.

The guard was silent, after the announcement. None spoke, none moved, not that any of them would dare. That was until one by one clapping began, then cheering. Amelia watched as her mates began to relax, but she did not. She was no fool, she could look at some of their faces. Some were not happy, but they would not dare speak out against their Masters. Looking over she noted Marcus was not fooled either, as he studied a few of the guards.

"If any harm her." He suddenly spoke, causing everyone to fall silent in shock at his voice. It was dark, almost evil. "It won't be a quick death." The threat was immanent, as a few of the guards with black eyes looked away. "If you need to leave and hunt, now is the time."

Caius seemed to watch the guards that left, before turning to Amelia. "Stay close to your guard, because what Marcus said was accurate." He spoke loudly, gaining the attention from the rest of the guards. "Any who threaten you, will deal with us personally. A threat against you is a threat against us, and that is a crime worthy of the highest penalty."

"My brothers speak the truth." Aro added gleefully. "Protected you will be, our children will make sure of it."

"We will mother." Jane agreed, turning to the other guards. "My mother has taken us in as her own, in return we will defend her against anyone."

Alec smirked darkly. "We will gladly kill for her."

Demetri moved forward, along with Felix. "The Queen is our sister, attack her and you won't get far."

Bree nodded along with the rest of the guard. "My Queen saved me, protected me. If you give her the chance she will shield you if you deserve it. But, remember she is well protected. Cross her, you cross us all." This shocked Amelia, as Bree always seemed quiet, frightened almost...but the Volturi was obviously what she needed. She was protected, safe, secure, in that moment Amelia knew she made the right decision convincing Caius to let her into the guard rather than stay with the Cullens. Bree probably would have done well under Jasper, but here she thrives.

A guard member stepped forward. "We will protect her." Amelia eyed him, recognizing him from a picture from Carlisle's office. His family believed he only had the one painting, but Carlisle had many. This she knew was Afton.

"Thank you Afton." Aro spoke smiling, while taking his hand. "You are genuine in your words, and as a shield you will do well on your Queen's guard."

Afton bowed his head, looking up to Amelia. "I will defend my Queen." With that he stepped back.

"Aro." Amelia spoke, holding her hand out. She did not wish the guard to fear her, in order to gain their acceptance. She knew she had to earn it, not expect it. "I want their respect, because they trust me, and I've earned it. Not with fear." Her words seem to speak volumes to some of the guard as they stepped forward, hands going to their chests where their hearts once beat.

One spoke, his voice deep with a slight Swedish accent. Pale skin, and blonde hair. "My name is William, My Queen."

"William is a part of our second class guard, he is a voice to other covens when we cannot be." Caius explained, nodding to the male.

Aro grinned. "He holds a gift similar to Bee, but instead of invisibility...he can cloak himself into looking like anyone he sees fit. He can also borrow the gifts of who he cloaks himself of." To prove his point, William seemed to shimmer; before a second Felix appeared in his place. "If we are ever under attack oh, he can disguise himself as you why we get you out of here."

"Though with the Romanians defeated that is less likely to happen, we have enemies yes...but none the greater than what they were." Marcus explained, before he looked out amongst the crowd. He smiled at the guards who had pledged their loyalty with a simple gesture. Their hands still in fists amongst their hearts. "Your Queen spoke truth and honor. She will not demand respect from you, as we. She wishes to earn it, and to a select few she has. The rest of you, I hope will eventually find the same."

William shifted back, before bowing his head. "You have my respect, and the respect of everyone that has joined me."

"I've not done anything." Amelia started, but the male smiled at her.

"You did, you promised not to force us. Instead you wish to earn our respect, that warrants respect." He explained.

Amelia smiled, before nodding. Her hand went to Caius, as she was a bit overwhelmed by all this. He took it, knowing how she felt. He was anxious as well.

Aro seeing this, looked back to his coven. "You are all dismissed." He ordered, watching as several left immediately; some stayed a little while. Then, there were a few who stayed to greet the Queen before they left. Aro had smiled at them, but he seemed just as uncomfortable with them as Amelia was.

Marcus decided then a change of scenery may be a good idea. "Mia Cara, will you take a walk with me to the gardens?" Holding his hand out to her, a hand she took without a second thought.

Caius watched the two leave, before he turned to Aro. "The guard do not all seem as thrilled as you expected."

"No, they did not." The dark haired leader agreed in annoyance. "Which baffles me, Amelia has a way of attracting our kind to her."

"No, she had a way with the Cullens, and the elite guard because they got to know her. The rest will see in time." Caius replied logically, before his voice darkened. "They will not threaten or insult her however."

"Why brother, I could not agree more." Aro agreed, his usual grin feral.

0.o.0

Marcus had lied they did not go to the garden, least that was not what Amelia would call it. The rose wonderland deserved a much better name then simple garden. It had to place Disney's Beauty and the Beast to shame. "I guess you like?"

"Like? I don't think the word is justice to how I feel. Love, however could very well be close." Amelia replied, as she was led to a gazebo...it reminding her of the one from Junior year prom. "Can we dance?" She asked.

"You never have to ask." He replied, taking her phone from her pocket. "Pick your song, Mia Cara."

Pick she did, as the music began to play softly in the wind.

Lookin' in your eyes

I see a paradise

This world that I found

Is too good to be true

Standin' here beside you

Want so much to give you

This love in my heart

That I'm feelin' for you

"Ah, Nothing's gonna stop us?" Marcus teased. "How romantic."

Let 'em say we're crazy

I don't care 'bout that

Put your hand in my hand

Baby, don't ever look back

Let the world around us

Just fall apart

Baby, we can make it

If we're heart to heart

Amelia said nothing, as she sang along with the lyrics. Her head falling on his chest, as the two swayed softly to the music of the song.

And we can build this dream together

Standing strong forever

Nothing's gonna stop us now

And if this world runs out of lovers

We'll still have each other

Nothing's gonna stop us

Nothing's gonna stop us now

Oh, whoa

Marcus sighed as he pulled her face to look up to him. "I prefer to look into the eyes of the woman I dance with." He told her, before claiming her lips with his own. "It allows me to kiss you however many times I want."

I'm so glad I found you

I'm not gonna lose you

Whatever it takes

I will stay here with you

Take it to the good times

See it through the bad times

Whatever it takes

Is what I'm gonna do

"Marcus." She replied, with a grin upon her lips. "You never have to ask for a kiss, you know that don't you?"

"Yes I do." He replied, the music falling to the background around them.

Let 'em say we're crazy

What do they know

Put your arms around me

Baby, don't ever let go

Let the world around us

Just fall apart

Baby, we can make it

If we're heart to heart

"Good." She replied softly, as she captured his lips. Their bodies stopped swaying to the music as the two became lost in one another.

And we can build this dream together

Standing strong forever

Nothing's gonna stop us now

And if this world runs out of lovers

We'll still have each other

Nothing's gonna stop us

Nothing's gonna stop us

Ooh, all that I need is you

All that I ever need

And all that I want to do

Is hold you forever ever and ever, hey

And we can build this dream together

Standing strong forever

Nothing's gonna stop us now

And if this world runs out of lovers

We'll still have each other

Nothing's gonna stop us

Nothing's gonna stop us

The music stopped playing, or started again neither knew, as they continued to assault the others mouths in a fleet of passion. Neither noting they being joined by both Aro and Caius, as they stayed locked.

"You know brother, it is true." Aro spoke to the blonde. "Nothing's Gonna stop us now."

"Corny brother, but I cannot help but agree." Caius replied simply.

Corny Aro is fun Aro isn't he, this was such a fun chapter to write. I would like to thank wwcanada1996 for the idea of William. If anybody has any ideas for more DOc's for guard members both good and bad, that would be appreciated.
