Edward was thrilled to have the Amazons with us, because Zafrina was enormously talented; her gift could make a very dangerous offensive weapon. Not that Edward was asking for Zafrina to side with us in the battle, but if the Volturi did not pause when they saw our witnesses, perhaps they would pause for a different kind of scene.
”It’s a very straightforward illusion,” Edward explained when it turned out that I couldn’t see anything, as usual. Zafrina was intrigued and amused by my immunity - something she’d never encountered before - and she hovered restlessly while Edward described what I was missing. Edward’s eyes unfocused slightly as he continued. “She can make most people see whatever she wants them to see - see that, and nothing else. For example, right now I would appear to be alone in the middle of a rain forest. It’s so clear I might possibly believe it, except for the fact that I can still feel you in my arms.”
Zafrina’s lips twitched into her hard version of a smile. A second later, Edward’s eyes focused again, and he grinned back.
”Impressive,” he said.
Renesmee was fascinated with the conversation, and she reached out fearlessly toward Zafrina.
”Can I see?” she asked.
”What would you like to see?” Zafrina asked.
”What you showed daddy.”
Zafrina nodded, and I watched anxiously as Renesmee’s eyes stared blankly into space. A second later, Renesmee’s dazzling smile lit up her face.
”More,” she commanded.
After that, it was hard to keep Renesmee away from Zafrina and her pretty pictures. I worried, because I was quite sure that Zafrina was able to create images that were not pretty at all. But through Renesmee’s thoughts I could see Zafrina’s visions for myself - they were as clear as any of Renesmee’s own memories, like they were real - and thus judge for myself whether they were appropriate or not.
Thought I didn’t give her up easily, I had to admit it was a good thing Zafrina was keeping Renesmee entertained. I need my hands. I had so much to learn, both physically and mentally, and time was so short.
