1-part 1-pov-jacob black I watched renesmee turn over fitfully in her sleep.
She was so beautiful… “Jake?”, her voice suddenly pierced the darkness. “Yes?”. “I-I had a bad dream…”, she mumbled, but she knew I could hear her. “It’s alright baby.”, I said, drawing her close and wrapping my arms around her. “Thanks.”, she said in her wonderful voice. “Is there anything you want to say to me?”, she asked minutes later. “No.”, I said truthfully. I just wanted to admire her beauty for all time. She sighed. “I’m sorry for waking you up.”. “No, no. It’s all right honey, I don’t mind. I’d do anything for you.”. She sighed and fell back asleep.
1-part 2-pov-renesmee cullen I turned quietly to face the trees. A cloaked figure emerged. “Hello, renesmee.”, a bone chilling voice said. Aro! “Jake?”, I said suddenly, waking from my dream. “Yes?”, He whispered. “I-I had a bad dream.”, I mumbled. “It’s alright baby,”, he said, drawing me close and wrapping his arms around me. This felt so comfortable and right, and that word baby. She just loved it when he called her that. “Is there anything you want to say to me?”, I asked, hoping for a conversation. “No.”. I sighed. “I’m sorry for waking you up.”, I said sincerely. “No, no. It’s all right honey, I don’t mind. I’d do anything for you.”. I sighed happily and fell back to sleep. 2-pov-renesmee cullen “Ness?”, I heard Jake call through my slumber. “Hm?”, I mumbled, turning over tiredly. “I was wondering, do you wanna go to the beach?”. My heart skipped about a thousand beats. Go to the beach. With Jake? I’d done it before, but after last night’s thoughts… “Sure!”, I said halfheartedly. We arrived at first beach when it was completely deserted, and the water was just warm enough for swimming. I sat on a rock and watched Jacob swim for a moment before he came to sit next to me. He laid back and pulled me back with him and said, “I was just wondering, uh…You know what imprinting is, right?”. “Of course, Quil imprinted Claire, right?”, I said. “Yeah. I-I asked you to come to the beach with me today to tell you something. Ness-”. He cut short. But it wasn’t his fault he stopped, it was mine, I guess? I’d sat up to take my shirt off and my bikini was showing. It wasn’t anything special, yet I noticed him gaping at me. “Yes?”, I said turning to him. “Renesmee, I love you. I always have, since the day you were born. And I wanted you to know, I-I imprinted with you.”. My jaw dropped so low, I thought it was about to fall off. Those feelings I’d felt… they were mutual. And as soon as he said he loved me I realized I loved him. So much.
Suddenly, I tackled him and our lips were inches apart. He closed the gap. This kiss, it wasn’t forceful, or hurried. It was calm, slow, gentle, wonderful in so many ways. I broke from his lips reluctantly, and he looked into my eyes. I smiled, broke from his grip, and ran to the shoreline. He looked at me confusedly until I waved at him to come after. He ran into the waves and swept me into his arms. I giggled and we fell back into the water. We were laying on the shoreline and he was whispering into my ear everything he’d ever thought about me, granted some of it I’d thought of him in the past couple of days. I suddenly realized something. “We might want to head home, Jake.”, I stated matter-of-factly. “Why?”, he whispered into my ear. His warm breath and voice alone were enough to convince me, but I knew I had to hold to my choice. “Oh, because I’m thinking we should let my mom and dad-oh, and Alice- of this.”. He groaned. “Alright, but before we go…”, he said, pulling me into a kiss. * * * We arrived back at the house in minutes, but before we went in, Jake pulled me into a kiss. Before I knew it, it had been a matter of minutes, and Alice had come out of the house, probably sensing our presence, and was staring at us with a happy yet shocked expression on her face. When we pulled apart, and I realized she was there, I blushed a violent red. “Oh yay, finally, everyone!”, she called into the house. I was in a state of confusion. Finally, everyone? My dad was staring at Jacob angrily as we went into the house, Alice was speaking to my mother enthusiastically,(about my*gulp* wedding I would soon come to learn.), and Emmett was laughing at my dad’s face. “So, when do you want to do this?”, Alice asked as she practically bounced up and down. “Do what, exactly?”, I asked. “The wedding, of course!”. “Wedding!? This just happened and you’re already planning my wedding!? And what did you mean by “finally, everyone”?”, I cried hurriedly. Alice looked positively heartbroken. She looked at everyone for guidance,(as if she needed it), and turned back to me with a nervous smile. “Well, Ness, I’ve known-everyone’s known-about this since you were born. So, again, when should we do this?”, she said the last part more enthusiastically. “Wait, so everyone has known that Jake loves me, since the very day I was born, except for me?”. I looked at everyone in turn. Their expressions told me all that I needed to know. I stomped off to my room angrily, and slammed the door shut. 3-pov-Jacob black Ness stomped up the stairs and I heard a slam as she closed her door. “Jake, why don’t you…”, Bella suggested. I hurried up the stairs and knocked on her door. “Nessie?”. “Jake? If it’s you come in, if not, GO AWAY!”, she cried. Oh, how that emotion-filled voice broke my heart. I opened the door and closed it quickly once I was in. I laid next to her on the bed and caressed her cheek. “How could no one tell me?”, she sobbed. How could I tell her it was me who had sworn them to secrecy? How could I tell her it was me who had waited to tell her? “I-I… I’m sorry baby. It’s my fault.”, I whispered soothingly. She stared at me dumbstruck, but she didn’t say anything. The silence killed
me more than her words could. “Oh, Jake…”, she sobbed, burying her head in my shoulder. “Oh, I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to upset you.”, I said sincerely. “These aren’t sad tears, they’re happy tears.”. “What for?”. “If you were the one… I just was upset because I felt like no one cared…and you…”, was all I heard through her sobs. “Oh, oh, it’s okay.”. Renesmee lifted her head and looked at me with her beautiful brown eyes. I smiled. “Hold on one second.”, I whispered. I jogged to my room and fished the box from the depths of my dresser. I’d waited so long for this moment, and Alice wasn’t going to dominate every part of this. I thought Renesmee really deserved this at least. I slipped into her room, and sat on the edge of the bed. She sat up next to me and looked at me expectantly. I slipped into a kneeling position on the floor and her eyes widened.(Even kneeling, I came up to her eye level. Plus, she was sitting.) “Renesmee Carlie Cullen…may I have the honor of your hand in marriage.”. My face wore a happy expression, but inside I felt like crap just awaiting her answer. She was still wearing an expression of awe. “I-I-I-I-I-I…”, she stuttered. My face was falling as every second ticked by. “Yes!”, she finally screamed, tackling me back onto the floor and hugging me fiercely. “Open it.”, I said, kissing her jaw. “It’s beautiful…But Jake?”. “It was my grandmothers.”. “Oh, Jake it’s per-”, I cut her off with a kiss. As she broke from my lips, her door opened, and Edward walked in wearing an appalled expression at us on the floor, with Emmett laughing behind him, and Bella beaming behind him. Renesmee giggled as I burst up from the floor nervously. “Let me see!”, Alice said, breaking in through the already full doorway. Ness sat up and Alice pulled up her left hand. “Wait, if you can’t see us, how did you know…?”. “Edward.”, she said simply as she investigated the ring. “So, when is it planned for?”, I asked. I knew the wedding was never off, we were just waiting for Nessie to calm down. “Uh, three weeks from tomorrow.”, she said as she was still looking over the ring. God, it was just a few stones and a band of gold, how much was there to see? “Um, Jacob?”, Edward said, pulling me into the hallway. “Yeah, yeah, I know, take good care of her, hands off until the wedding night, etcetera, etcetera.”, I rambled off. “Yes, but I was going to say congratulations. So, congratulations. Never thought I’d say this, but I’m happy for you Jake.”. “Uh…Thanks, Edward.”. “No problem.”. 4-pov-Renesmee Cullen It’s been exactly a week since Jacob proposed to me. Alice is going hectic with arrangements, even at this time of the morning. “Jake?”, I whispered into the darkness. “Ness?”, he moaned. “Oh, did I wake you?”. “It doesn’t matter, baby.”, he yawned. There was that word again. Baby. It
still sent shivers down my spine. I sighed and snuggled closer to his chest, and he wrapped his arms tighter around me. I moved my hand over his heart, and felt it speed up. I thought of him kissing me and pressed my hand to his forehead. He chuckled and brought his lips to mine. Every kiss with him felt better than the last. I was still lip locked with him when our bedroom door-that was nice, our bedroom-burst open, and Alice questioned me on what flowers I wanted. Jake told her to get out, and she pouted until I told her to just get lilacs. “Roses it is!”, she said. I shook my head wearily. “Is it time to get up?”, I yawned. “I suppose so.”, Jake whispered. “Ugh, I’m “hungry”.”, I groaned, emphasizing the word hungry. “Well then, get up and we can go together.”, he said in a tired voice. We broke apart and he swept me up. I was giggling and squirming to get out of his arms. He laughed and set me down and we left the house quickly so Alice wouldn’t hold us back with a bombardment of questions. We were never separate through the hunting, and we went slow to spend more time together. As we were walking back and we were about to cross the river, I stopped him and pressed my hand to his head. I wanted to swim. He trotted back to the forest and phased. I was already swimming and I beckoned for him to come in. He smiled and took a running jump into the water. Before he had the chance to come back up, I dove under water and held my breath. He was at the surface, and calling my name. I swam up and grabbed his leg and pulled him down. As we surfaced, laughing and carrying on, he seized me in a kiss and we both fell back down into the water. I had my hands in his hair and when we broke apart I was upset. Right away his lips were back on mine. As we got out of the water and walked back to the house, I saw Alice awaiting us on the porch. Jake tried to sneak away, but I said, “Oh no, if I have to enter the belly of the beast, you do too.”. When we met up with Alice, her expression told me our meeting wasn’t about the wedding. “What’s wrong?”, Jacob and I said in unison. “Jacob, I don’t know how to tell you this. Billy was in an accident. He’s in the hospital.”. 5-pov-Jacob Black “He’s in the hospital.”. “He was in an accident.”. Those words echoed in my head as I sat in the small waiting room. Nessie was sitting beside me, telling me everything would be okay and I had her hand clamped firmly in mine to make sure she wasn’t about to be in the same state as my father, for any reason. Seth, Leah, and a couple other of the Quileute tribe were also there, talking in hushed voices, but I could here them still. I was worried sick out of my mind. Hours ticked by on the wall clock above the reception desk. Nessie was asleep, her head on my shoulder, and I was drifting off as well when a nurse came into the waiting area and asked me if I was Billy Black’s son. “Yes!”, I said worriedly. “You can go in and see him now.”, she said. “Ness, I’m going to see my dad.”, I whispered. “Let me come.”, she said, standing up. I didn’t feel like saying no. We entered the hospital room quietly, and my dad turned his head to look at me. “Jacob…”, he coughed. “Dad! Hey, your going to be alright, okay, you were in an accident.”, I said hurriedly, pulling Renesmee up to him with me. He chuckled. “I’m hurt son, I don’t have Alzheimer’s.”.
I smiled with effort. “You know Ness, right?”. “Oh, is that a ring I see?”. I felt my face getting red as she showed him the ring. “So when should I clear my schedule for?”, he joked. “Ah, two weeks…”. “Two weeks?! So soon?”. “Well, yeah. You know her family…”. Ness hit me on the shoulder. “Oh? Well, we’ll have to see if I’ll get out in time.”, he said as if he was talking about work, or school. “Dad…”. “Look, son, don’t worry, I’m fine. I just can’t seem to feel my legs…”. “Oh, haha.”, I said with a grin. “Okay, well, why don’t you two go home, I’ll be fine, I promise.”. “But-”. “No buts. Now go on, look at her. And you. You’re both a mess. Go get some sleep.”. I sighed. He was right. Ness was falling asleep where she stood. I picked her up, and left the room reluctantly. When we got home, I laid Ness down in the bed and sat up watching her sleep. I was so worried I didn’t notice how the expression on her face was changing, until all of a sudden she rolled off the bed and started to scream. I picked her up and shook her awake. “Ness, what’s wrong?”. “I-I had a bad dream. Aro, he…”. “Aro?”, I said worriedly. “Yeah, he-he was going to…”, then she broke into a fit of sobs. “Carlisle!”, I called down the stairs. I heard some movement down stairs, and the door to the room burst open. Carlisle calmly took control and picked up Renesmee from the floor. “What happened?”, he asked, directing the question at me. “I-I don’t know. She was sleeping and then suddenly falls to the floor and starts screaming. She had a dream about Aro.”. His face went grim. “Alice!”. She was there in an instant. “Can you see if Aro is planning anything?”. Alice’s expression went glazed-over for a moment before she said, “Nothing as far as I can tell.”. “Good. Just a dream.”. I breathed a sigh of relief. Renesmee had stopped crying and was now sleeping again. “I gave her a mild sleeping sedative. If anything else happens, don’t hesitate to call us.”. “Yeah.”. I wouldn’t. With my father in the hospital, I couldn’t have anything happen to Ness. I wouldn’t. 6-pov-Renesmee Cullen “Mom, can you tell Alice that I’m perfectly capable of dressing myself?”, I growled as Alice was dressing me in my wedding gown. “I heard.”. The gown she was putting on me was the lucky winner of Alice’s dress picking. She’d had about twenty dress’s picked out, and this was the one she’d narrowed it down to. It was a beautiful gown, no doubt. There were hundreds, if not thousands, of diamonds sewn to the sleeveless-bodice. The skirt of the dress was a plain silk, with a knee high slit on the left side. The train was a cotton-ish mesh that was attached to the waist of the dress with two sapphire pins.(I think the sapphires were supposed to be my something blue?)
As Alice handed over the task of adjusting and re-adjusting the dress to my mother, Rosalie did my hair, and Alice started on my makeup. I’d been standing here for about, I don’t know, six hours? And I still had more of the torture to come… But not but twenty minutes later, I was standing in front of the floor length mirror in Alice’s bathroom looking at a beautiful goddess-like creature, who looked no older than twenty. That couldn’t be me, could it? “Hm… The dress is new, the ring is old, the pins are blue… Oh, I know!”, Alice said to no one in particular. Alice pranced over to her jewelry box, and rummaged in a drawer for something. “Here.”, she said, placing a simple topaz bracelet on my wrist. “Thanks.”. “Now, for the veil. Bella?”. My mother walked over to me and placed the silk mesh over my face. “Okay, finally done. Now, where’s Edward?”. “Right here, Alice.”, my father said as he entered the room at her last word. “Alright, we’re ready.”, Alice announced. I suddenly had a swarm of butterflies take control of my stomach as my father hooked his elbow in mine and we descended the stairs to the front room. As soon as I saw the crowd, I was overwhelmed. As tradition was so strongly held in this family, there was a bride’s side, and a groom’s side. My side consisted of vampires from all reaches, including Zaphrina, one of my favorite vampires. Also, there was Vladimir and his friend…I couldn’t remember his name for some reason, and Nahuel and his family, and so many others, including Tanya’s coven. And then there was Jacob’s side. About one fourth of the seats were filled with the Quileute pack and some of Jacob’s closest friends and family. I was glad to see Billy, beaming at me from the front row. Now I was smirking. I was ecstatic, and the only thing that kept me from sprinting down the aisle was my dad’s constricting arm. The music started to play and the assembly stood. We started off slow, and the whole time I was walking I looked at Jacob. He was beaming, looking at me with the most adoring gaze. I swore I was blushing. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, I reached the alter. “I love you.”, Jacob mouthed. “As do I you.”, I mouthed back. The minister started to read off the sermon, but I ignored him. When it came time to say the vows, I was alert to what Jacob had to say. “Renesmee, I’ve known you all your life. I’ve loved since the moment I first laid eyes on you, and I’m happy, grateful, to say that you are my wife as of today. I promise to love you for all eternity, and to make sure you’re happy all your life.”. My eyes were filled with joyous tears as I started my vows. “Jacob, you have always been there for me. You’ve been a best friend to me, a family member to my family, and an overall great guy. You are what makes me happy, what makes me want to get out of bed in the morning. I love you Jacob.”. “You may kiss the bride.”, I heard the minister say in his gruff voice. Jacob ducked his head to my level and pulled me into a heart-stopping kiss. The crowd cheered. I pulled away reluctantly and smiled at him. He smiled back. The wedding party stood up and went out back to the reception area Alice had set up. We went with them, holding hands and beaming the whole way. 7-pov-Jacob Black I was married. Married. I’d waited a long eight years for this day, but now
that it had rolled around I just couldn’t wrap my head around it. But I didn’t care. Because I was with the one I loved the most in the world, and that was all that mattered. Renesmee laid her head on my shoulder as we began dancing. God she was beautiful. I felt a tinge of guilt at taking her from her family-after all, she was only technically eight. But every time I looked in her face I knew I wanted nothing more than to be with her. We were done dancing, and another was about to begin when Edward cut in. I grumbled quietly, and relaxed by the trees. I watched her dance with half the wedding party before she finally freed herself and walked over to me. “Jake?”, she asked. “Yeah, Ness?”. “Why don’t we go get in another dance before Alice hijacks me back to her bathroom.”. “Why would she do that? You’re already perfect. In fact, you’re perfect without all that makeup and stuff.”. “I don’t know…something about trying on a dress to wear when we leave.”. She laughed. I loved her laugh. “Alright.”. We stepped back onto the dance floor. She looked straight at me as we danced. I just took in her face, I could never get enough of her. At the end I tried to pull her into a kiss, but Alice suddenly swept in and stole her from me. “Wha- Alice!”, I cried angrily. It was about two hours later, when almost the whole crowd had dispersed, I was sitting on the couch in the living room, watching a game with Emmett, when Alice called down the stairs for me. I got up and walked up the stairs slowly, not sure what to expect. I got to Alice’s room and saw Renesmee sitting on the end of her bed looking at me expectantly. She was wearing a little black dress. And heels. That was all. This wasn’t Alice… “It’s just, because it’s for you’re honeymoon.”. She giggled. I sighed. “Of course, Alice.”. Renesmee got up. “Do you like it?”, she asked, spinning around for me to stay. Let’s just say my eye’s lingered in a few spots. “I love it.”, I said, pulling her into a hug. I mouthed a thank-you to Alice and she waved back. “Okay, you two have to go now, or- wow, Ness. Is that really my niece under all that? The mongrel looks even worse compared to you tonight.”, Rose said as she popped her head into the doorway. “Yeah, Aunt Rose, it’s me. And don‘t say that about my husband. He‘s not a mongrel!”. Husband… Oh, god, my stomach was churning. “Well, if you two want to make it to the airport in time, you better go.”. “Alright.”, Ness and I said at the same time. Ness said good-bye to everyone and met me outside. “Jacob, Renesmee, are you ready to go?”, Edward asked. Crap. Edward was driving us. “Sure.”, I said with a sigh. He laughed. Must’ve read my mind. Renesmee and I slid into the back seat of the Volvo. She leaned against my shoulder and fell asleep. I twisted my hand into hers. I let my mind wander to how tonight would be and I heard Edward start to growl menacingly. I chuckled and kept my thoughts where they were to annoy him. When we got to the airport, I woke Ness up. Edward dropped us off at the terminal. Good riddance. We got to the gate just in time. I pulled Renesmee down the center aisle of the plane as everyone stared at
her. She was beautiful, I had to admit. We sat down in the very last seat. She pecked me on the cheek and laid her head on my shoulder. I looked out the window, and fell asleep as we took off. 8-pov-Jacob Black I woke up as we hit the tarmac in Brazil. It was dark and presumably humid outside, and I waited for everyone else to leave before I woke Ness. She yawned and looked around excitedly. She stood to go and I grabbed the carry-on’s and followed behind her. She stepped into the airport, and I saw her grin and she pulled me along. We collected our bags and waited at a bus terminal. I wasn’t telling her, but we were going to be on a bus for the next three hours. She frowned when I pulled her into the cramped bus, but she sat down and immediately fell to sleep. Oh, how I adored her when she slept. I settled in when I noticed the front of a newspaper nearby: ANIMALS DISSAPEARING IN THE AMAZON. IS IT A THREAT? I tried to read what was in the paper, but the font was too small. My heartbeat quickened. Every time something like this sprung up in the news it was because of the paranormal half of this world. I sighed and looked out at the passing countryside. My mind wandered back to the newspaper at once. It worried me too much. The three hours on the bus thankfully came and went. I grabbed our bags and woke up Ness. She looked around sleepily, but stood up and practically jogged out of the bus. I was only just getting off the bus when I realized what her hurry was. She was doubled over on the ground, puking into the grass at the side of the dirt road. I dropped the bags and ran to her, pulling back her hair and consoling her until she quit vomiting. She had tears running down her face, and her shoes weren’t in great shape, but she was unscathed other than that. I asked her what was wrong. “Th-th-the dream. I h-h-had it a-a-again…”, she moaned. I sighed and said, “Look, I’m going to call Carlisle. You wait for Zaphrina.”. “Zaphrina? She couldn’t be here…”. “Yeah, she is. I wanted it to be a surprise, but we’re staying with her for a week first. She left the wedding early to get here before us. Just hang tight Ness.”, I crooned. I jogged back to where I dropped our bags and dug the cell phone out of Ness’s purse. I flipped it open and dialed the Cullen’s home number. Unfortunately, Edward picked up. “What the hell is going on?”, He hissed into the phone. “Can I speak to Carlisle?”, I said, ignoring his impoliteness. “No, Jacob, you can’t. What is going on with my daughter? Alice says she just saw Zaphrina carrying an unconscious Renesmee through the forest.”. I turned quickly and saw Zaphrina standing next to Renesmee. I sighed. “Nothing, Edward. She just got sick, just the flight. I, um, wanted to call to say we got here fine. So, we got here fine, and, uh, bye!”. I hung up the phone and tossed it back into Renesmee’s purse. I picked up the bags. “Can you carry these, too? It will be easier to follow if I’m in wolf form.”, I asked, gesturing to the bags. She chuckled a picked up all five bags with one hand and Renesmee with her other. I phased and we headed off into the trees. * * * I was in the bathroom of the quaint little hut Zaphrina had given us to stay
in. I walked back into the bedroom and saw Renesmee sitting, holding something behind her back. She stood up, and she moved past me quickly, not allowing me to see what was behind her back. I realized what must be coming. I was standing by the window, only in my boxers awaiting the return of my love when she came out of the bathroom in an almost-transparent robe, and the only thing keeping it closed was her hand that clutched it. As she walked over to the bed her fingers loosened one by one and she let it fall as she reached the bed. I looked her over, finally seeing all of the wonderful woman who was mine, who I loved and who loved me. A breeze blew the window open and the moonlight struck her skin and it glimmered faintly. It was weird how the moon, not the sun, did that to her skin. She took hold of my hands and said, “Jake?”. “Yes my love?”, I whispered into the skin if her neck. “I love you Jake.”. Then she pulled me onto the bed and I said, “I love you too Renesmee.”. 9-pov-Renesmee Black I woke up and stared around the room groggily. I heard the shower running in the bathroom. I sat up and looked at my suitcase. I wanted to get in my pajama’s and get into bed. I opened my suitcase and beheld the hell that was my wardrobe, which was all packed by Alice. It was an assortment of lace and silk. I saw the one thing I had packed. A robe I’d picked from the pile Alice didn’t want to pack. I realized then that it was still my honeymoon night. I sat on the bed awaiting Jacob, hiding the robe behind my back. He walked out and looked at me apprehensively. I snuck past him, hiding the robe. I slipped the robe on and undid my hair. I opened the door to see him standing by the window, only in his boxers. I’d seen him shirtless plenty of times, and there was a time when I’d caught him, (accidentally, I might add), right after he phased. But to me, he never looked better to me than tonight. My hand was the only thing holding my robe shut, and as I neared the bed I loosened my fingers one by one. I reached the bed and let my robe fall. His eyes swept over me appraisingly. How did I never see the love in his eyes before now? The wind blew open the window and he saw my skin take on a glimmer. His eyes widened and I took his hands and whispered, “Jake?”. His lips were on my neck and he said, “Yes my love?”, and his breath washed over the skin of my neck, sending a shiver down my spine. “I love you.”, I said proudly, and pulled him down onto the bed with me. “I love you too, Renesmee.”, he replied. And I knew with every fiber of my soul that he meant it and I meant it, especially because he usually never called me by my full name. And as I took in what he said, our lips met and I let myself finally be his. 10-pov-Jacob Black “Good morning Mrs. Black.”, I whispered into her ear. She yawned, and pulled the blanket over herself more. “Oh, Jake. Last night was…”. “Amazing.”, I finished her sentence. She smiled and wrapped her arms around my neck. She pushed her lips to mine with a new urgency and when she pulled away I saw the passion in her eyes. I groaned. “I wish we could.”, I whispered into her ear. “Why not?”, she plead. “Well, Zaphrina has already stopped by once, and I think we want privacy. So, we just have to wait. But, I promise to take you somewhere special today, that Nahuel told me about at the wedding.”, I said, kissing her forehead.
She snuggled closer to my chest and I stroked her hair. She yawned again and got up. I saw her grab her suitcase and go into the bathroom. I laid there staring at the ceiling like a complete idiot. I’d finally made love to my Renesmee. I was completely ecstatic. She came out of the bathroom, looking as stunning as ever, and bounced over to the bed, and sat on my stomach. “Get up Jake! We can go hangout with Zaphrina!”, she cried happily. “I would if I could.”, I said, glaring at her sitting on my stomach. She giggled and rolled over to lay on the bed while she waited for me. I hurried into the bathroom and changed. When I was done, we walked over to the house where Zaphrina and Nahuel and the others lived. We walked in and saw Nahuel sitting down at the table eating a bowl of what looked like oatmeal, but I couldn’t be sure. “Nahuel! How did you get back so fast?”, she said, as they embraced. He didn’t answer and went back to his…oatmeal. We wandered through the house and found Zaphrina watering some plants in the main room. “Renesmee! How nice to see you!”. The two embraced, and Renesmee showed Zaphrina what had happened over the past year, since her last birthday. They smiled and I left them to catch up. I walked back to where Nahuel was eating and sat across from him at the table. He addressed me with a nod and I frowned. “Do you have a problem with me Nahuel?”, I asked in an annoyed tone. “When are you taking Renesmee to the pond?”, he asked in a quiet voice. “Later today, I was hoping. Why?”. “Jacob, be careful with her.”, he whispered. I smirked. “She’s my wife. I know how to be around her.”. “No, Jacob, you don’t understand. Be careful. Do you want her to end up like her mother? Bella has confided in me a lot, since she always worries over her. Don’t let her get…”. My mind was mulling over what he was trying to say. “How dare you try to say I would get her pregnant! I don’t think that’s your department to cover.”, I said angrily. He frowned at me, but our expressions of anger changed as Renesmee walked into the room. “Jakey?”, she said, coming to sit on my lap. I held her in my arms and watched Nahuel fake gag behind her shoulder. “Yes?”. “Lets go into the forest to hunt. I’m thirsty after…well, after last night.”, she whispered the last part. Nahuel must’ve caught it, though, because he had a disgusted look on his face. “Sure, uh, do you want to go with us, Nahuel?”, I said in a joking tone. He shook his head. I pulled Renesmee after me and I phased as we hit the trees. I followed behind and watched her hunt. I wasn’t all that hungry, oddly. We stumbled upon the pond that I had wanted to take her to later and I watched in silence as she stripped to her underwear and jumped in. “Come on Jake!”, she cried. I whimpered and fidgeted on the shore. “Aww, is the little wolfy scared of the water?”, she teased. I growled, phased and jumped in. I grabbed her by the waist and she squealed. We carried on for hours until I told her we should get back to the house. She waded over to me and kissed me. She didn’t pull away, but she pushed us back into the water. “Let’s stay Jake.”, she said when we surfaced and she finally pulled away. She winked after she said it. It was so hard to say no to that. And I didn’t want to. * * *
I sat high up in a tree, waiting for Renesmee to find me. I’d been counting
how many bird nest’s there were when I heard the voices of people walking by below. “God, Nahuel, slow down. I fly all the way out here to visit you and you-”, I drowned the rest out as I realized who it was. I practically flew to the ground and caught Leah by the back of the shoulder. “Leah? What are you doing here?”. “Jacob, I found you. Now you- Is that Leah?”, Renesmee said as she entered the clearing. Leah looked flustered, and she and Nahuel’s hands were locked together practically. Understanding took the place of confusion on my face. “How long?”, I whispered, still somewhat stunned. “At Renesmee’s last birthday. We met and I, um, I imprinted.”, she said ecstatically. I saw Nahuel look at her longingly. I stared at her, then not knowing what else to do I pulled her into a hug. “Congratulations. Now you can stop saying how annoying the rest of the pack is and that you’ve moved on from Sam.”, I whispered into her ear jokingly. She laughed. I’d not heard her laugh in a long time. We spent the next few hours catching up, since I’d not been with the pack since I’d proposed to Renesmee. We all were sitting by one of the many rivers that ran through the Amazon, when Nahuel did something very unexpected. He pulled Leah away for a moment and she came back with the biggest grin on her face. “You can tell them.”, Nahuel said. She tried to speak, but apparently she was to emotional to. Nahuel stepped in and said, “I proposed.”. 11-pov-Leah Clearwater Nahuel pulled me behind the trees, away from the others. He seemed so close to me now. I had to admit, we hadn’t really kissed-kissed. I wanted to so badly, but with the amount of space between us, it was hardly possible. Now he kissed me full on the lips and stared into my eyes lovingly. I didn’t understand the urgency he had today. Then he rummaged in his pocket for something and brought out a small dark blue velvet box. I gasped. “Leah, will you-”. “Yes!”, I screamed. He smiled and slipped the ring on my finger. I jumped up and down and hugged him. We walked out of the trees and I couldn’t help but grin. Jake and Renesmee were looking at us like we were crazy. “You can tell them.”, Nahuel said. I wanted to but I was on cloud nine. I was just so happy I was struck speechless. Nahuel realized my predicament and said, “I proposed.”. 12-pov-Jacob Black I growled. My body was shaking, I thought I was going to phase and pull Nahuel limb from limb. Leah, no matter how annoying she’d ever been, had been like a little sister to me. Renesmee shook me and Leah stepped in front of Nahuel. “Jake? Jacob? What’s wrong?”, Renesmee said, placing her hand on my forehead to show her worry. I looked at her, not wanting her to be afraid or uncomfortable. “Renesmee, he…I…Ever since Sam left her, then her father died…She’s always been like…”, I said hurriedly. Renesmee didn’t look confused like you would expect others too. She understood that I tried to look after Leah because I was the only one who would really put up with her, and since she’d been through so much, I didn’t want her to be hurt even worse.
Leah looked somewhat distraught, and as I stood she crouched protectively in front of Nahuel. “Nahuel,”, I said calmly as I could, “can I talk to you?”. He nodded. Now I knew how Edward must feel…no, I didn’t. He had to lose his child at such a young age. “Nahuel, Leah’s been through so much. If this is something you’re not incredibly sure about…”, I trailed off. Oh, god, now I was beginning to sound like Edward. “Jacob, One, Yes, I’m absolutely sure. She wouldn’t have imprinted me if we weren’t exactly meant to be together. And two, I don’t think that this is your department to cover.”, he said with a smirk. I growled at him. “This, this is different Nahuel. Renesmee had a father that knew me all my life, from the day I imprinted her, and he watched us, so I had someone’s rules to abide by. You’re not one to tell us what to do or not to do, when we have someone else who has already and will continue to watch over us. If it weren’t for him…I don’t know, Nahuel… Renesmee and I may not have even waited this long or done any of this with consent. But we did because she-no, wehad dozens of people trying to push us together at the exact right time, not to early, not to late. But Leah… She has no father to abide by, just a mother who basically ignores her now as she lives away at her relatives. Then there is the pack, who would give anything, not even considering her happiness, to hear Leah shut up about her horrible life. That’s not how it should be, but it is. I however, have stuck by Leah, and I am not about to see her get hurt. AGAIN.”. I gasped for air as I finished my rant. Nahuel looked dumbstruck and his expression had slight hints of fear, respect, understanding, and overall he realized what I meant. “Jacob…I don’t want her to get hurt… I do love her, as much as I could ever love someone. And I know this is the right choice.”, Nahuel said to me in an undertone. My thoughts went back to the night of mine and Renesmee’s engagement, when I’d questioned her whether this is really what she had wanted. Her words were almost the exact copy of what Nahuel said. “I believe you.”, I replied. His face lit up with happiness. He emerged from the trees and let a worried Leah run into his arms and they hugged each other. Renesmee looked at me lovingly. She stretched out her hands and I took them in mine. She kissed me, right there, in front on Leah and Nahuel. It wasn’t the first public kiss we’d shared, but it was in front of Leah and Nahuel. They looked at us like they wanted us to be them in that very moment. I looked into her eyes as she pulled away from my lips and rested her forehead against mine. She whispered into my ear, “Jake, you are the one and only superman.”. I laughed. “How so?”. She started to whisper a response when a loud cough emanated from Leah’s throat. “Can you, perhaps, quit that so we can go back together and explain to Zaphrina about our engagement?”, she asked worriedly. I chuckled. “Yeah, why not. Then you girls can sit and talk about weddings.”. I looked at Renesmee. She looked sick at the mention of wedding planning, but as I looked at Leah, she looked the exact opposite. Her face had an expression of glee. I chuckled once more. Renesmee hit me on the shoulder. “I swear you inherited your father’s gift, and not your mother’s ”, I said in a mock hurt voice. She smiled. I loved her smile… 13-pov-Renesmee Black The sun rose over the ocean and the rays spread across the blue-green waves and made them sparkle lustrously. I was sitting on the bed in the bedroom, waiting for Jake to come back from the bathroom, watching out the window at the beauty of the ocean. We were on a small, uncharted island off the coast of Brazil, and we were leaving tomorrow to go back home. We were to meet Leah and Nahuel at the pier when we came back, then we were taking another one of those damned buses to the
airport, where we would fly back to Forks for the wedding, then Leah and Nahuel would go on their honeymoon. I dreaded leaving South America. Jake and I wouldn’t get our privacy back home. I knew we were going to move into our own place in the next few years, but I just had this feeling that it wouldn’t change anything. I felt his arms slip around me and he tugged at the sheet I’d covered myself with. I grabbed his hand. “Jake?”. “Yeah?”, he whispered, in a tone that yelled, I’m sorry if I messed up, please forgive me. “I want to go swimming today. We’ve done almost nothing but… Well, not that I’m complaining. But I wanted to do something else…before we…left.”, I said with a frown. “I’m sorry if I upset you. Don’t cry, I’d do anything with you. Baby?”, he said worriedly as I rested my head against his chest. “I don’t want to go. This is all so perfect. Here, with you…”, I said with a sigh. He chuckled. “Don’t worry baby.”. he said, then kissed me on my forehead. “Now get up and get on a swimsuit. You wanted to go swimming, so we’re going to go swimming.”. He got up and stretched. I watched his perfectly sculpted tan muscles flex. Was my mouth watering? His eyes fell on me looking at him and I blushed as hard as was possible for me. He laughed. “You can put on the one you wore at First Beach, or something that…Alice…packed. Or maybe nothing at all?”, he said suggestively. Now I laughed. “Get out, so I can surprise you!”. I pushed him out the door, closed it, locked it, and rifled through my suitcase. Honestly, neither I nor Alice had really prepared for swimming. Really, all Alice was concerned with was if I looked good. Finally, I reached a point where Alice had packed some skimpy bikinis. I chuckled. I’d forgotten my bikinis that actually covered my skin, so I threw one on. I was a black bikini with a halter like top, and a boxer type bottom. It was tight fitting, but that was probably how Alice has planned it, as well as the fact that it probably wouldn’t be on long. I stepped into the hallway, and I swear Jakes eyes nearly popped straight out of his head. “Are you gonna put on something to swim in?”, I questioned at his bareness. He shook his head. I raised my eyebrow. He wrapped his arms around me and pulled me into a kiss. I hit him on the shoulder jokingly. “Swimming!”, I said with a laugh. He smiled and pulled me out onto the beach. As I stepped into the sunlight, he looked me over and said, “Why, I do believe you look even better in this light, if that is even possible.”. I laughed and took a step towards the water. “Gonna join me?”, I said with a wink. He swept me into his arms and carried me into the waves. * * * “We have spent I don’t know how many hours riding in odd Brazilian means of transportation Jake. I don’t know why we have to wait for a plane that should have been here hours ago!”. “It’s called a delay.”, he replied in a frustrated tone. I tapped my foot. Nahuel and Leah were waiting in line to get us food and we were holding their places at the terminal. “Finally.”, I squealed in delight as the plane pulled up to the gate. I watched the people file off the plane in what seemed like an endless line, but as it ended, all four of us were the first on due to our, uh, inhuman pace. I sat with Jacob in the back, and Leah and Nahuel sat in front of us. I wanted to just run home, but Jacob said we had to take the plane. I spent the next 2 hours staring out at the clouds and stars, before we had a layover in Texas. Jacob tapped me on the shoulder. “We get off here.”. He was hiding something from me… We were in Texas, not Washington. I saw him wink at Leah and she waved back. I got up and followed behind the others, happy that I was at least off that plane. Then I realized Nahuel and Leah were still on the other plane.
I followed behind Jacob, who led me to another terminal, where we were the last ones on the plane. I didn’t even get a glimpse at where our destination was. We sat across from each other in the only available seats. I eventually fell asleep. 14-pov-Jacob Black I carried Renesmee carefully, hoping she wouldn’t wake and ruin her surprise. I wanted this to be perfect, for her to wake up and see what I’d done for her. I was standing in front of a large, Victorian style house on the very fringe of a dense forest, 107 miles outside an Alaskan city I didn’t know the name of. I stared at the house the Cullen’s had once owned, it was beautiful. And it was ours. I opened the door carefully, and walked into a fully furnished, heated, humongous house. I closed the door with my foot and carried Renesmee up the stairs to the third floor. I walked into the master bedroom, and laid her on the bed. I looked at her to make sure she was fine, then went down stairs to grab our bags. I’d already looked at the house when Carlisle had first shown it to me back when Renesmee was still very young. I’d planned this with him, and since Alice couldn’t see anyone around me or Renesmee, even she didn’t know a thing about this. It was between me and Carlisle. I dropped the bags outside the bedroom door, slipped inside, laid down next to Renesmee, pulled her closer to me, and fell asleep. 15-pov-Renesmee Black It would be a lie to say I wasn’t surprised when I woke up. I thought I was home at first, and Jake had just carried me in the night before. That part wasn’t wrong though. What was wrong was that I was in a completely different house. “Jacob…”, I whispered into his ear. He yawned, sat up, smiled, and said, “What do you think?”. I stared at him stupidly. “About what?, I asked. He laughed. “About our house. Oh, wait, Edward will probably call in about, 3, 2, 1...”, he said as he looked at a clock on the wall. My phone rang. I picked it up. “Dad?”. I heard a relieved sigh. “Can I please talk to Jacob?”, he asked calmly. I handed him the phone. He held the phone away from his ear as my father yelled curses through the phone. They exchanged a few words, and the conversation ended where the phone was handed back to me, and it was now my mother on the line who said, “Oh, honey, congratulations!”, and the phone line went dead. I was confused… Jacob wrapped me up in a bear hug. “Surprise, Mrs. Black. You are now the proud owner of a house.”, he whispered into my ear. My face was covered in tears in a moment. My Jacob had done this for me. “But, we’ll miss the wedding…”, I said through my tears. “Actually, we won’t. They postponed it because Alice didn’t have enough planning time.”, he said with a laugh. “I seriously doubt Alice could not plan a wedding in a two weeks.”. “But that’s what she said. I think it was for us? Carlisle must have told her.”. “Wait, wait. Is this one of those things that was supposed to be a surprise for me, but isn’t going the planned way?”, I asked. He chuckled. “Yeah, I guess if you put it that way. Now, um, are you going to check out the house?”. I jumped out of the bed and looked into the hallway. There were three other doors, and a staircase at the end of the hall. “A two story?”, I asked, turning my head back to Jacob. He held up three fingers. “A three story?!”. I quickly looked into the other rooms on the floor and
hurried down the stairs, stopping to look at the second story, then I went down the last flight of stairs. “It’s wonderful.”, I said to Jake when he found me. “I’m glad you like it.”. “Why are there so many bedrooms though?”, I asked. I think I already new the answer. “That would be, uh, for, um…children.”, he said quietly. “Wouldn’t my father be happy about that.”, I said with a laugh. “But would you?”, he whispered, cupping my face in his hands. My smile vanished and a serious look took it’s place. “Of course I would. Why wouldn’t I be? Better yet, why would you think otherwise?”. He shrugged. “I don’t know. Maybe it’s the whole, ‘Edward would kill me’ factor.”. We both laughed. “I wouldn’t let him.”. He smiled and picked me up. “Did I ever carry you over the threshold?”, he said jokingly. “Why I don’t think you did.”, I said through a smile. He picked me up and carried me up the stairs. “Well, uh, I think that now is the right time.”, he said, walking into the bedroom and closing the door with his foot. * * * “I can’t believe not but a month ago, I was here in this same yard, celebrating Renesmee’s and Jacob’s wedding, and now I’m here, newly wed to my beautiful Leah.”, Nahuel said, raising his glass. He smiled at Leah and pecked her on the cheek. “Mmm…were we that way when we were married?”, Jacob whispered in my ear as we clapped with the rest of the party guests. “We’re that way now.”. I turned my head and kissed him. “Renesmee!”, Alice screeched. I jumped. It had been a peaceful month away from her. Not that I didn’t love her, just she really got on my last nerve sometimes. “Alice!”, I said, jumping up to hug her. She jumped up and down animatedly. “So, how was the honeymoon?”, she asked excitedly, raising her eyebrows. “Great, Alice.”. She smiled and scampered off to pounce on another party guest. “Oh…”, I moaned softly. “What’s wrong baby?”, Jacob asked worriedly. “Just a little stomachache. Just give me a minute, let me go to the bathroom.”. I was almost into the house when Emmett stopped me. “Ness!”, he said, pulling me into one of his bear hugs. “Great to see you to Em. But, erm, can we just catch up in a minute. I really need to go to the bathroom.”. He looked hurt, but said, “Fine. But you come straight to me when your done Ness!”, jokingly. I hurried into the house and up the stairs. I got into the thankfully unoccupied bathroom just in time. I fell to my knees and leaned over the toilet. I’d been in the bathroom for awhile when there was a knock on the door. “Ness? Hey, are you in there. Jacob said you went to the bathroom and haven’t been back.”, Alice called through the door. “Alice, come in.”, I groaned. She came in, shutting the door behind her. “Oh, Ness, what’s wrong?”, she said as she crouched down next to me. I started to reply when another wave of nausea hit me. Alice held back my hair and pulled out her cell. “Carlisle? Renesmee’s really sick. Can you come up here and help her?”. She hung up. Carlisle was there in a flash. “What’s up?”.
“I don’t know. She’s just vomiting. A lot.”, she said with a grimace. He sighed. “Could be anything. What have you eaten today, Ness?”. “Uh, just the steak from the wedding service and I had some champagne.”, I said hoarsely. My throat was raw. “Well, no one else is puking up their guts. I’ll take her to my exam room upstairs, you can go get Jacob.”. Alice pouted but did what he said. Jacob held my hand. “Ah, Ness. He’s checked for everything he can think of. He doesn’t know what it is.”, he crooned. “I don’t care. Just make it stop.”, I screeched. Carlisle burst into the room. “No, Edward. You can talk to Jacob, after I talk to him and Renesmee.”, he said, locking the door behind him. “Why does he want to talk to me? It’s not like I caused this.”, Jacob said defensively. Carlisle sighed. “You may very well have Jacob.”, he muttered. Jacob and I both were confused. “Look, my next question are very personal. Will you answer it, though, if I ask?”. “Sure, whatever. You’re family, and you’re the only doctor that can treat her. I don’t care what the question is.”, Jacob said hurriedly. “Okay then. When was the first day of your last menstrual cycle, Renesmee?”. My eyes widened. “You’re not suggesting?”, I whispered. “Answer my question, Ness.”. I thought about it. Maybe… “A week before the wedding.”. I groaned. “Okay. I’ll run a test, and-”. Edward suddenly crashed through the locked door. “Jacob, outside, now.”, he growled. “No!”, I said firmly. Everyone looked at me incredulously. “What?”, my father asked. “I said, no. He’s staying here. We’re married, it’s okay that we had sex, it’s okay if he got me pregnant. He’s my husband.”. My father flinched at the words sex and pregnant. “Edward, get out of this exam room. I need to test her. You’re not even sure if she is pregnant. When I get the results, then you can get all emotional like you do.”, Carlisle said angrily. Wow, he was different when it came to being a doctor. My dad glared at him, but strode away. Carlisle closed the door as best he could. “This is the second most embarrassing thing I’ve done in my family. First Bella, now my granddaughter. Two things I really would rather not be doing. Now, uh, Renesmee, erm, put your feet in the stirrups.”, he whispered the last sentence. I squeezed Jacobs hand. My grip loosened as I suddenly lost consciousness. * * * I was surrounded by endless darkness. Unable to move, speak, or see. But I could hear. “I don’t know Edward. All I know is after Carlisle had finished, I noticed she was passed out. Look, it’s not like I want her getting pregnant so early on. We just started our relationship, and what, a month after the wedding she’s pregnant. Oh joy.”, I heard…it sounded like Jacob. He didn’t want me to be pregnant? Wait, I WAS PREGNANT?! “All I know is, well, nothing. I don’t know anything about my daughter at the moment except that she’s pregnant. I ought to kill you mutt.”, my dad snarled menacingly. “Don’t call Jacob a mutt.”, I mumbled. “Renesmee!”, they both said in relief. My eyelids fluttered open.
“So I’m pregnant?”, I whispered. The happy expressions on their faces disappeared. “Yeah.”, Jacob muttered. “And you don’t want me to be?”, I said angrily. “Damn right I don’t.”, my father said. “Not very nice to curse at a pregnant woman, let alone your own daughter bro.”, Emmett said, walking into the room. “Where’re the others, Emmett?”. “Oh, downstairs talking with Carlisle, planning the best way to attack this situation.”. He smiled at me. “I thought you were coming right back Ness.”. “Change of plans, I guess Em.”. We laughed, but we were the only ones who did. “Emmett, Jake, can you get out. Bella!”, he called out the door. They left, of course they didn’t want to. My mom came in, and my father slammed the door so hard it split down the middle. “Oh, well, isn’t it ironic-”, my mother said, mustering up the tiniest bit of humor she could,”-that you got pregnant almost in the same situation as me.”. My father frowned. “How could you not be safe!”, he yelled at me. I glared at him. “Now is hardly the time for this.”, I whispered. “That doesn’t answer my question.”. “Here’s my answer, then: My wedding night, my chance to finally-.”. He glared daggers at me. “You wanted an answer, are you going to take the full one?”. “No, Renesmee, it was a rhetorical question, really.”. “So, I’m pregnant. And?”, I dared to say. My fathers eyes were a deep black with anger. “Renesmee, your only seven. You just got married. Now you’re pregnant. What’s your rush?”. “I love your double standard, Dad. So it’s okay for mom to get pregnant after you two just got married, but not me?”. “Renesmee, that was different. It was something we could’ve prevented if we’d known I could get her pregnant, and I wanted to do something about it. She wouldn’t let me.”, he whispered. “I-”. Then Carlisle walked in, interrupting me. “Bella, Edward. Stop pestering Renesmee. We can talk about this as a family down stairs in a minute. Now, Renesmee.”, he said, turning to me. “Yeah?”. “It turns out you are pregnant. Now, with the fact that both you and Jake are half human, half something else, makes the children have a larger human gene ratio. But, if we factor in how fast your growth was, with Jake’s rapid growth, I suspect it still won’t be a normal birth.”, Carlisle said this all in a very professional manner. “D-did you say children?”. “Yes. It’s twins. I’ve spent a bit calculating it, and I think you should only have to carry them for three months, four tops. Since you’ve already carried them for about a month now, you should only have 2-3 months left.”. “Carlisle, you’re not seriously contemplating letting her carry them? We can’t change her, like we did Bella if things go wrong.”, my dad hissed. “Yes, Edward, I think she should carry them. The risks aren’t as high this time. They have more human genetics, as I have already said. The birth should be very simple. Oh, and Renesmee, I hope you hunted recently. You cant hunt for the next couple of months.”. “WHAT?!”, we all said at once. “Yes, since the children have more genetics leaning towards the side of nonvampire, they will reject the blood. In fact, I believe they may never have to drink blood.”, he said happily. “But I-”.
“You can just as easily live off food as you can blood, Ness. Don’t worry.”. I sighed and nodded my head. It was then that I realized how tired I was. “Guys, I think we should let her rest.”, Carlisle said, waving his hand at my mom and dad. “We’ll talk about this later Ness.”, my dad said firmly. I nodded feebly and fell into restless sleep. 16-pov-Jacob Black After Edward had cleared us off from the room I’d run downstairs and out the door, shaking. I’d almost been unable to contain it, but I made it to the woods in time to phase. Leah, strangely, was in wolf form, as well as Seth. “Shouldn’t you be celebrating with Nahuel, Leah?”, I said dully. “We are. We’re hunting together right now. Then, we’re going to celebrate.”. “Ah, Leah!”, Seth and I said at once. “What about you? Shouldn’t you be heading back to Alaska with your wife?”, Leah pushed. “Change of plans.”, I growled. “Her family keeping her back?”, Seth asked gently. “Nah. She’s, uh, here for medical reasons.”. “How’d she get sick?”, Leah and Seth asked. “Oh, she’s not sick.”. “Hurt?”. “Nope.”. “Pregnant?”, they said jokingly. I remained silent. They took the hint. “OH MY GOD JACOB! ARE YOU SERIOUSLY SAYING-”. “Yeah, Ness is pregnant.”. They remained silent. “B-b-b-but, Jacob. How’d you-”. “How do you think, Seth?”, I said rudely. “Well, then. I think I’ll just go human now and share this with Nahuel.”, Leah said smugly. I groaned mentally. I didn’t want him to know. He was the one that said, “Be careful.”. I was such an idiot. * * * “Wow. How didn’t I notice this?”, I whispered as I rubbed Renesmee’s stomach. “You tell me how I didn’t notice.”, she murmured, putting an emphasis on ‘I’. Renesmee’s pregnancy was 3 times as fast as a regular pregnancy. At one month and a week, Renesmee was already the size of a three month pregnant woman. Edward, Carlisle, Bella, Renesmee, and I had been fighting about this for the past week. Carlisle, Renesmee, and I all agreed it would be okay for her to go home for about a month, then come back. Edward and Bella, on the other hand, wanted her to stay here just incase something came up. I could hear them arguing downstairs. “My throat is burning.”, Ness moaned softly. I sighed. She’d already said this about ten times already. It hurt me to see her like this. “I know, Nessie. I’m sorry, but you heard Carlisle.”. “Jake…I was wondering…”. “Hm?”. “He said they may never have to drink blood. What if they never are able to phase?”. I tensed up. I’d not thought about that. Who would carry on the alpha gene
if these children couldn’t? “I dunno Ness. Hey, Carlisle.”, I called. “Everything alright?”, Carlisle said, walking in the door. “Oh, yeah. Just, um, you said the children wont need blood. Will they ever phase?”. “Well, I don’t know that much of shape shifters, so I’m not sure Jake. There is always the possibility.”. I gulped. Who would carry the alpha gene, be the new pack leader, what if… “Jake?”, Renesmee interrupted my thoughts. “Yeah baby?”. “Jake, don’t worry. Nothing will be wrong with the kids.”. “Mm-hm.”. 17-pov-Bella Cullen “Edward, maybe this isn’t as bad as you think it is.”, I whispered. “Bella…he…he…that mutt is responsible.”, he said angrily. “Jacob is responsible, yes, but so is Renesmee. They BOTH had s-”. “Ugh, don’t say it.”. “Sex.”, I finished. He groaned. “Edward, Renesmee is as strong willed as me. If she doesn’t want to give those babies up, she won’t.”. “Well… I guess we taught her well.”. “Oh, we did.”. I smiled. I pulled him by his shirt collar to meet my lips. “Mmm….I’m glad we can’t sleep.”, he said with a smirk. I agreed. 18-pov-Renesmee Black TWO MONTHS LATER I turned over fitfully in my sleep. My stomach was killing me. I hadn’t eaten much that could’ve upset the kids, yet I felt as if I had a knife being plunged into my abdomen in quick succession. “Jake.”, I yelled suddenly. Jake sprung up looking confused, but when he saw me bunched up in pain on the bed he freaked. “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god!… Carlisle!!!”. There wasn’t a second after that that wasn’t hectic. Jake was carrying me and Carlisle was talking to me patiently yet I couldn’t hear one word of what he said. My mother was in hysterics as much as was possible for her and my father was looking angry and anguished as he stood by her. “Carlisle?”, I whispered. “Yes?”. “Save the kids.”, I said before I blacked out. 19-pov-Renesmee Black “Are you sure she’s alive?”. “Yes, Jake, go attend to the kids. We just have to wait, you know that. It’s always the waiting game in this kind of situation.”. “But Car-”. “No buts Jake, now get the hell out!”. Woah, there. Had I just heard Grandpa Carlisle use profanity? Something must be wrong with someone in the family because…Oh wait, I was that someone. Had they saved the kids? Was I going to live? Was I alive? Wait, I had heard them so I must be but why couldn’t I see or move? “Carlisle… I told her… I told Bella… Don’t do this… but noooo, no one ever listens to me.”.
“Oh, Edward, just calm down. You should be downstairs with the family like everyone else like a sensible person.”. “Mm-hm-fm-jhhhh”. “What was that Edward?”. “I didn’t say any- Renesmee?”. “Renesmee, can you hear me?”, Carlisle asked. “Mmm.”. “Okay then, can you move or speak better?”. “Yehhsh”, I said. “Okay then, can you get up or open your eyes?”. I slowly blinked open my eyes. My vision was blurry for a moment, then returned to normal. I then painstakingly sat up. “Ugh. Are the kids okay?”. “Yes, the question is are you?”. “Yes, but I want to see my kids.”. “Okay. Jacob!”. “Yeah, Carlisle?!”. “Bring the kids up!”. I heard some muffled voices and some shuffling then the sound of approaching steps. Then Jacob stepped in, holding two wriggling bundles of blankets. “Renesmee!”, he said in relief. “Jake…The kids! Oh my god, lemme see them!”, I said enthusiastically. Jacob handed me one of the kids, then the next. They were beautiful, one boy, one girl. They both had jet black hair like Jacob, but it was curly like my hair. They had my eyes and Jacob’s skin tone. “Their-”. “Beautiful.”, Jacob finished. I smiled at him then he kissed me. In front of my Grandpa. And my Dad. “I’m so happy that you’re alright Ness.”, he said when he pulled away. “I’m glad the kids are. I couldn’t have cared less what happened to me, as long as they were fine.”. The room went silent momentarily. “Renesmee… We have to tell you something, well, more like show you.”, Carlisle said. “What?”, I said worriedly. “Alice!”, he called. Alice appeared at the door. Carrying a black haired baby in her arms. 20-pov-Renesmee Cullen I was dumbstruck. “Whaaaaa?”. “The ultra sound was wrong you had triplets.”. “Triplets? Oh my god, let me see…uh, what sex is it?”, I said stupidly. “It’s a boy.”. “Oh, two Black boys. Lord knows we need that.”, I said jokingly, as I held out my hands for my child. He looked just like his brother and sister, except his hair was straight. “Oh, he’s adorable!”, I whispered. And abnormally quiet and calm compared to the others. “I guess he inherited more that my eyes.”, I said. “What will we name them?”. “I haven’t thought of any names. Hmmm…. What about Isabella Hale Black, Charles Em Black and Cameron Black.”. “Where’d Cameron come from?”. “I don’t really know… It just came to me…”, I said as I stared as Cameron’s brown eyes. “Well, no matter, they are beautiful names.”. “And they are beautiful children.”, I said, smiling.
