22. HIDE-AND-SEEK

It had taken much less time than I'd thought — all the terror, the despair, the shattering of my heart. The minutes were ticking by more slowly than usual. Jasper still hadn't come back when I returned to Alice. I was afraid to be in the same room with her, afraid that she would guess… and afraid to hide from her for the same reason.

I would have thought I was far beyond the ability to be surprised, my thoughts tortured and unstable, but I was surprised when I saw Alice bent over the desk, gripping the edge with two hands. "Alice?"

She didn't react when I called her name, but her head was slowly rocking side to side, and I saw her face. Her eyes were blank, dazed… My thoughts flew to my mother. Was I already too late?

I hurried to her side, reaching out automatically to touch her hand.

"Alice!" Jasper's voice whipped, and then he was right behind her, his hands curling over hers, loosening them from their grip on the table. Across the room, the door swung shut with a low click.

"What is it?" he demanded.

She turned her face away from me, into his chest. "Bella," she said.

"I'm right here," I replied.

Her head twisted around, her eyes locking on mine, their expression still strangely blank. I realized at once that she hadn't been speaking to me, she'd been answering Jasper's question.

"What did you see?" I said — and there was no question in my flat, uncaring voice.

Jasper looked at me sharply. I kept my expression vacant and waited. His eyes were confused as they flickered swiftly between Alice's face and mine, feeling the chaos… for I could guess what Alice had seen now.

I felt a tranquil atmosphere settle around me. I welcomed it, using it to keep my emotions disciplined, under control.

Alice, too, recovered herself.

"Nothing, really," she answered finally, her voice remarkably calm and convincing. "Just the same room as before."

She finally looked at me, her expression smooth and withdrawn. "Did you want breakfast?"

"No, I'll eat at the airport." I was very calm, too. I went to the bathroom to shower. Almost as if I were borrowing Jasper's strange extra sense, I could feel Alice's wild — though well-concealed — desperation to have me out of the room, to be alone with Jasper. So she could tell him that they were doing something wrong, that they were going to fail…

I got ready methodically, concentrating on each little task. I left my hair down, swirling around me, covering my face. The peaceful mood Jasper created worked its way through me and helped me think clearly. Helped me plan. I dug through my bag until I found my sock full of money. I emptied it into my pocket.

I was anxious to get to the airport, and glad when we left by seven. I sat alone this time in the back of the dark car. Alice leaned against the door, her face toward Jasper but, behind her sunglasses, shooting glances in my direction every few seconds.

"Alice?" I asked indifferently.

She was wary. "Yes?"

"How does it work? The things that you see?" I stared out the side window, and my voice sounded bored. "Edward said it wasn't definite… that things change?" It was harder than I would have thought to say his name. That must have been what alerted Jasper, why a fresh wave of serenity filled the car.

"Yes, things change…" she murmured — hopefully, I thought. "Some things are more certain than others… like the weather. People are harder. I only see the course they're on while they're on it. Once they change their minds — make a new decision, no matter how small — the whole future shifts." I nodded thoughtfully. "So you couldn't see James in Phoenix until he decided to come here."

"Yes," she agreed, wary again.

And she hadn't seen me in the mirror room with James until I'd made the decision to meet him there. I tried not to think about what else she might have seen. I didn't want my panic to make Jasper more suspicious. They would be watching me twice as carefully now, anyway, after Alice's vision. This was going to be impossible.

We got to the airport. Luck was with me, or maybe it was just good odds. Edward's plane was landing in terminal four, the largest terminal, where most flights landed — so it wasn't surprising that his was. But it was the terminal I needed: the biggest, the most confusing. And there was a door on level three that might be the only chance.

We parked on the fourth floor of the huge garage. I led the way, for once more knowledgeable about my surroundings than they were. We took the elevator down to level three, where the passengers unloaded. Alice and Jasper spent a long time looking at the departing flights board. I could hear them discussing the pros and cons of New York, Atlanta, Chicago. Places I'd never seen. And would never see.

I waited for my opportunity, impatient, unable to stop my toe from tapping. We sat in the long rows of chairs by the metal detectors, Jasper and Alice pretending to people-watch but really watching me. Every inch I shifted in my seat was followed by a quick glance out of the corner of their eyes. It was hopeless. Should I run? Would they dare to stop me physically in this public place? Or would they simply follow?

I pulled the unmarked envelope out of my pocket and set it on top of Alice's black leather bag. She looked at me.

"My letter," I said. She nodded, tucking it under the top flap. He would find it soon enough.

The minutes passed and Edward's arrival grew closer. It was amazing how every cell in my body seemed to know he was coming, to long for his coming. That made it very hard. I found myself trying to think of excuses to stay, to see him first and then make my escape. But I knew that was impossible if I was going to have any chance to get away.

Several times Alice offered to go get breakfast with me. Later, I told her, not yet.

I stared at the arrival board, watching as flight after flight arrived on time. The flight from Seattle crept closer to the top of the board.

And then, when I had only thirty minutes to make my escape, the numbers changed. His plane was ten minutes early. I had no more time.

"I think I'll eat now," I said quickly.

Alice stood. "I'll come with you."

"Do you mind if Jasper comes instead?" I asked. "I'm feeling a little…" I didn't finish the sentence. My eyes were wild enough to convey what I didn't say.

Jasper stood up. Alice's eyes were confused, but — I saw to my relief— not suspicious. She must be attributing the change in her vision to some maneuver of the tracker's rather than a betrayal by me.

Jasper walked silently beside me, his hand on the small of my back, as if he were guiding me. I pretended a lack of interest in the first few airport cafes, my head scanning for what I really wanted. And there it was, around the corner, out of Alice's sharp sight: the level-three ladies' room.

"Do you mind?" I asked Jasper as we passed. "I'll just be a moment." "I'll be right here," he said.

As soon as the door shut behind me, I was running. I remembered the time I had gotten lost from this bathroom, because it had two exits.

Outside the far door it was only a short sprint to the elevators, and if Jasper stayed where he said he would, I'd never be in his line of sight. I didn't look behind me as I ran. This was my only chance, and even if he saw me, I had to keep going. People stared, but I ignored them. Around the corner the elevators were waiting, and I dashed forward, throwing my hand between the closing doors of a full elevator headed down. I squeezed in beside the irritated passengers, and checked to make sure that the button for level one had been pushed. It was already lit, and the doors closed.

第二十二章 捉迷藏

做到这一点所花的时间比我认为的还要短——所有的恐惧和绝望,还有我破碎的心。时间一分一秒地过去,流淌得比平时还蛮。当我回到爱丽丝那里时,贾斯帕还没回来。我很怕和她待在同一个房间里,生怕她会猜到……也害怕着,需要因为同样的理由而隐瞒她。

我本以为自己已经没有余力去感到惊讶里,因为我的心一直忐忑不安,已经饱受折磨。但当我看到爱丽丝伏在桌子上,两手紧紧地抓着桌子边缘时,我依然吃了一惊。

“爱丽丝?“

我喊她的名字,她没有反应,但她的头慢慢地转了过来,我看见了她的脸。她的脸色很苍白,脸上一片迷茫……我立刻想到了我母亲。已经太迟了吗?

我飞快地冲到她身旁,本能地伸出手想拉着她的手。

“爱丽丝!“贾斯帕的声音听起来像是被鞭子抽了一样。然后,他立刻出现在了她身后,他的手交缠在她的手上,把它们从桌子上掰开。房间的另一头,房门啪地一声轻轻关上了。

“怎么回事?“他询问道。

她把脸埋到他胸口,不再看我。“贝拉。“她说道。

“我在这里。“我答道。

她的头转了过来,她的目光锁住了我的眼睛,眼里依然是一副诡异的空白的神情。我立刻意识到,她不是在叫我,她是在回答贾斯帕的问题。

“你看见了什么?“我说道——但我波澜不兴,漠不关心的声音里没有半点疑问。

贾斯帕狠狠地看着我。我让自己面无表情,等待着。他的目光轮流扫过在爱丽丝和我的脸,眼里写满了困惑……我猜到了爱丽丝看到的东西。

我感到一阵宁静笼罩着我。我对这宁静很是欢迎,利用它来控制自己的情绪,让自己的思绪有条不紊。
爱丽丝也恢复了过来。

“没事,真的。“她最终答道,她的声音异常地平静,令人信服。“跟之前的那间房间一样。“

她终于看向我,她的神情既平静又孤僻。“你想吃早餐了吗?“

“不,我会在机场吃早餐。“我也很平静。我走进浴室,去洗个澡。简直像是我借用了贾斯帕的特异感觉一样,我能感觉到爱丽丝强烈的——尽管她掩饰得很好——绝望地想让我离开这间屋子,让她和贾斯帕独处的情绪。这样她就能告诉他他们做错了某件事,他们注定要失败……

我有条不紊地做着准备,全神贯注地做好每一件琐事。我把头发放下来,披散在肩上,遮盖住自己的脸。贾斯帕所营造的安宁的气氛很有用,它能帮助我条理清晰地思考着。也有助于我的计划。我在书包里翻找着,挖出了我那只装满了钱的袜子。我把它倒空,把钱全部塞进了我的钱包里。

我迫不及待地想要到机场去,当我们在七点整出发的时候,我深感欣慰。这一次我独自坐在那辆黑色的轿车后排。爱丽丝倚在门上,她的脸朝着贾斯帕,但是,在她的太阳眼镜之下,她的眼睛每隔几秒就会向我的方向瞥一眼。

“爱丽丝?“我漠不关心地问道。

她很警惕。“嗯?“

“这是怎么做到的?你是怎么看见事物的呢?“我看向另一侧的窗外,我的声音听起来兴趣索然。“爱德华说过这不是很准确……事情会改变吗?“说出他的名字比我想过的还要困难。这一定让贾斯帕警惕起来,于是,一阵新鲜的清朗之气涤荡在车内。
“是的,事情会改变……“她喃喃低语着,我觉得,她似乎又燃起了希望。“有些事情会预测更准确些……比方说天气。但人们是很难预测的。我只能在他们开始前进时看到他们前进的方向。一旦他们改变了主意——做出一个新的决定,不管那决定有多么微小——整个未来就会改变了。“

我若有所思地点了点头。“所以你一直看不到詹姆斯在凤凰城,直到他决定来这里为止。“

“是的。“她赞同道,又警惕起来。

所以,在我决定去那里见詹姆斯以前,她不会在那间镜屋里看到我和他在一起。我试图不去思考她看到的到底是什么。我不想让自己的恐惧惊动贾斯帕,让他起疑心。无论如何,在爱丽丝看见了那些以后,他们会比平常更细心两倍地监视着我。这将会让我的一切努力成为不可能。

我们到了机场。幸运之神站在了我这边,或许这只是因为赔率比较高。爱德华的飞机要在四个小时以后才会降落,那个航班将停靠在最大的那个候机楼里,而那时正是最多航班降落的时候——当然,他的飞机会在这个时间这个地点降落并不令人惊讶。但这正是我所需要的那座航空楼:最大的,最容易让人迷路的那一座,而候机楼三层的那道门将是我唯一的机会。

我们把车停在了那个巨大的停车楼的四层。我负责带路,因为我曾来过这里,所以比他们更熟悉周围的环境。我们坐电梯到了三层,那里是乘客办理行李托运的地方。有很长一段时间,爱丽丝和贾斯帕都在看着即将起飞的航班办理登机手续的情景。我能听到他们在讨论着纽约,亚特兰大和芝加哥的优点和缺点。我从没见过那些地方。我再也不会有机会见到的地方。

我在焦急地等待着合适的时机,我的脚不听使唤地打着拍子。我们坐在金属探测器旁的一排排椅子上,贾斯帕和爱丽丝假装在看着来来往往的人群,实际上却是在监视着我。这真让人绝望。我应该跑吗?他们敢在这样的公共场合阻止我吗?又或者他们只会跟着我。

我把那封尚未署名的信封从钱包里拿出来,放到爱丽丝那只黑色的皮包上。她看着我。

“我的信。“我说道。她点了点头,把那封信收到皮包最外面的夹层里。他很快就会看到它了。

时间一分一秒地过去,爱德华的到来越来越近了。这实在是件惊人的事,我体内的每一个细胞似乎都知道他就要到来,都渴望着他的到来。这让事情变得很棘手。我发现自己试图想出留下来的借口,想要先看他一眼,再脱身而去。但我知道,只要我有任何机会脱身,这一切就不可能发生。

爱丽丝几次提出要陪我去吃早餐。再等会儿,我告诉她,我还不饿。

我盯着到达航班布告屏,看着一个又一个航班准时抵达。从西雅图飞来的航班越来越靠近布告屏的顶端了。

然后,当我还剩下三十分钟可以脱身的时候,屏幕上的数字变了。他的航班提前十分钟到达。我没时间了。

“我想我现在需要吃点东西了。“我迅速说道。
爱丽丝站起来。“我和你一起去。“

“你介意让贾斯帕陪我吗?“我问道。“我觉得有点……“我没把句子说完。我眼里的狂乱已足以表达我没有说出的一切。

贾斯帕站了起来。爱丽丝的眼里写满了困惑,但令我宽慰的是,我看到她眼里并没有怀疑的痕迹。她一定把自己所预见的改变归咎于追随者的某种阴谋,根本没想到是我的背叛。

贾斯帕沉默地走在我身旁,他的手轻轻点着我的背,就好像他在给我领路一样。我假装对最先遇到的那几家机场咖啡屋毫无兴趣,我的脑子在搜寻着我真正想要的某物。然后,我找到了,就在拐角处那里,在爱丽丝锐利的目光所及范围之外:三层女化妆间。

“你介意吗?“当我们走过那间化妆间前时,我问贾斯帕。“我只占用一点点时间。“

“我会在这里等着。“他说道。

身后的门刚刚关上,我立刻狂奔起来。我还记得,上次我曾在这个化妆间里迷路,因为这里有两个出口。
出了远处的那个门,只需再冲刺一小段路就能到达电梯。如果贾斯帕真的像他说的那样待在那里等着的话,他绝对不会看见我。当我奔跑的时候,我没有回头张望。这是我唯一的几乎,即使他看见我了,我也得继续跑。人们都在盯着我看,但我不去理会他们。拐过拐角,电梯正在那里等着,我夺路狂奔,把手伸进那架载满了人的下行电梯即将关闭的门里。我用力挤进那群愤怒的乘客里,看了一眼按钮板,想知道一层的按钮是否已经被按下了。那个按钮已经亮了起来,电梯门关上了。
