The story starts with Nessie and Jacob finding out they're having a baby. *the characters are SM's (except for a few later on), but the story is all my family and mine. This is my first time ever writing something like this. Comments are welcome. Hope you enjoy.

Chapter 1 The News
“TWINS!” That’s all I heard, nothing else.
Jacob and I both must have been in shock, because my entire family was now surrounding us.
I’m only three months pregnant, but I look like I’m gonna pop any day now. No one knew what to expect with my pregnancy. Grandpa Carlisle had told us that there was probably no chance of me having a baby, since I didn’t have a normal cycle, and wasn’t sure my body would adapt to a pregnancy. But, like everything else about me, I proved anything was possible.
Jacob and I got married a year ago, of course it was beautiful, Alice had planned it. It was a rocky road to the alter, after all, everyone but me knew about the imprinting, the finding of your true soul mate/your other half. So, I had to figure out my own feelings and Jacob’s, before anyone told me what was going on. At first, I was angry, then confused. Why didn’t they just tell me about the imprinting? But after awhile I realized that they wanted me to have choices. Once Jacob and I got everything out in the open, things went smoothly, until recently!
Three months ago out world was turned up-side-down. I started getting sick, in between that, I started eat more human food (which I normally didn’t care for), just about stopped hunting and drinking blood.
“Grandpa, I need to talk to you” I said.
“What is it Nessie?” He asked.
“I think something is wrong with me. I’m not feeling quite like myself. I’ve been getting sick, eating more human food and actually craving it, I don’t feel like hunting and the smell of blood makes it worse.
Grandpa just froze, like a statue. I’ve never seen him act this way before. After all, I’m sure he’s seen a lot of strange things, he works in a hospital and is surrounded by humans there. I was getting nervous by his lack of response.
“Grandpa” I tried to mutter out.
Finally, he snapped out of it and started asking me a million questions. I didn’t understand what he was trying to get at, until he said something about a pregnancy test.
“ A WHAT!” I was shocked.
Again, I was at a lost. Why would he want a test done? I couldn’t possibly be pregnant, could I!!!
The only thing I could think about was keeping this from the rest of the family, including Jacob. Everyone was so overprotective of me and after what my mom went through with her pregnancy , everyone would freak out if I was pregnant. But, it was gonna be difficult, since my dad can read minds, keeping a secret was close to impossible. And good thing that Alice had a hard time seeing visions of Jacob and my future, hopefully I don’t need to worry about her.
“Grandpa, can we please try to keep this between us until we know for sure?” I asked.
“Nessie, I think you need to tell Jacob. He’s probably noticed the changes in you and is already worrying about you” he said.
“OK, when can I take the test?” I asked nervously.
Grandpa left to go get a test and I went to find Jacob.
I found Jacob down at our cottage. I loved the sound of that “our cottage”. It was actually a gift to my parents when they first got married and they lived there for a few years, then moved back into the main house with the rest of the family. So, when Jacob and I got married they re-decorated and gave it to us when we came back from our honeymoon (dad couldn’t stand the though of being under the same roof as Jacob and I when he could read our minds).
Jacob was asleep on the sofa when I came in, he had when on patrol earlier this morning. He looked so innocent curled up on the sofa. I hated to disturb him, but Grandpa was right, I need to tell him.
“Jacob” I whispered, “we need to talk, I have something important to tell you.”
Jacob rolled over, sat up, and smiled at me. His smile always made me melt and my heart race faster.
“What’s on your mind, Ness” he said so heartfeltingly.
“I had a talk with Grandpa today and something miraculous may have happened,” I paused to see if any of this was setting any alarms off.
He was just sitting there staring at me questioningly.
“We my be pregnant!” I blurted out, not knowing how to say it or what his reaction would be.
At first, Jacob just sat there staring at me with a soft gentle smile on his lips. Then, he pulled me into a careful hug and told me he loved me. After a few minutes, Jacob said “HOW?”
I had to giggle a little at that. “How do you think?”
“Well, how is obvious, but hooowwww?????”
Since it didn’t seem to be getting through his thick skull, I decided to show him what happened. I lightly touched both his checks with my hands and started showing him the images of every time we had been together. Then, of me getting sick, the strange craving for food, the lack of interest in hunting and blood, and finally my conversation with Grandpa Carlisle.
It worked, it had all finally sunk in. He had a look I’d never seen before. I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Was he happy…furious…or scared?
Finally I asked, “what are you thinking?“ I tried to sound calm, but my voice still sounded shaky.
“Oh, Nessie, I’m so…” he started to say, but instead he started to gently kiss me. His soft touch sent electric tingles through my body. I always got tingles when he touched or kissed me. I started to melt into him. We fit so perfectly together, we were truly soul mates, meant to be together for a life time. Everything about him; his smell, his smile, his touch was everything I ever wanted and could stay wrapped up with him forever.
Suddenly he stopped. Jacob just froze. Oh, no! It finally really hit him.

Thanks for the encouragement and the compliment.
It's great to know people like the story. It was something that started out as a what if on a 4 1/2 hour drive to my mom's, with my husband and 18 year old son, I had read all 4 books to my husband and my son read the first 2, but got to busy with school and sports, so he had me tell him about the last 2; anyway, when I started reading the fanfics they got into them too, so on our trip I started taking notes of what they suggested and spent my 40th b-day weekend working on an outline and the first chapter (I even got part of the 1st ch posted while I was there). I never thought anyone would read it, except my family.
May God also Bless you and your family
Here's the first half of ch 10, as always your comments are welcomed. Please just remember I'm not an editor and I only read over it once before I post. My editor (my son) is to busy with school, sports, and getting ready for graduation to edit for me.
Chapter 10 Willy & Rose
“Nessie, I’m sorry about earlier. I really blow it when I bit Aro.” I couldn’t believe Jacob was still beating himself up over that. I was with Emmett, I wish he would have ripped his arm clean off and then ripped the rest of him to pieces. But right now my mind was more on the twins then the Volturi.
“Don’t worry about it, it’s not like they could possibly hate us anymore than they already do; they’ve had it out for us ever since my dad went there to try and kill himself. Anyway, I don’t want to think about any of it the rest of the night. I just want to spend time with you, we haven’t had any US time for awhile. How about a bubble bath for two to start with?” I gave him a sly smile and headed for the bathroom to start running the water.
“How can I say no to a proposition like that?” He was right behind me.
We had a great two hours of alone time until the twins woke up. Their schedule was all out of whack with the party and the unexpected guest.
Rosalie was tapping on the door; she had brought up the twins’ bottles for their feeding, I’m guessing that Willy let her know that he and Rose were awake and hungry. Then she left without really saying anything; except that if we wanted her to, she would watch the twins so that Jacob and I could get a full night’s sleep. Jacob told her that was nice of her, but we like taking care of the twins and we wanted some alone time with them. I know she understood, but I’m sure her and the others would love it if we let them help more. It’s just that the twins are growing so fast and mentally they’re like intelligent adults; so we really don’t want to be away from them at all.
So we ended our long hectic day just the four of us. The twins feel right back to sleep after the second bottle, Jacob and I left them in bed with us; and we all slept until 9 the next morning. It was probably the best night sleep we all had since the twins were born.
It was another beautiful day out, which was out of the ordinary for Forks. Grandma and Rosalie had a huge breakfast buffet out on the back patio for us, Seth, Hope, Leah, and Nahuel. I’d been dragging my feet about seeing Hope, how many more strange happenings could she take before she wanted to know the truth about everything; but mom had come up to tell us about breakfast and I wouldn’t want to hurt Grandma or Rosalie’s feelings.
But, we all were in for quite a surprise once we were all seated.
“Could all of the Cullens and Huilen please come out here for a minute?” Seth announced in a slightly louder voice than normal. And if a flash they were all out on the patio with us.
“What’s up?” Grandpa asked.
“Well, I’d like all of you to be the 2nd to know that I asked Hope to marry me and she said yes!”
“About time,” Jacob and my dad said at the same time.
“Yeah, well, I wanted to give Hope a chance to know what she was getting herself into before I asked her.” He said as he looked at Hope, he had such a loving and caring look whenever he talked about her.
“I’m sure I don’t know everything yet,” she said as she looked at me and the rest of my family. “But I know enough and I know that I love him and that he is my world.”
Everyone swarmed around them to give them hugs. It was truly a beautiful day. And I’m sure it made Alice’s day too, another wedding!
“Okay, now can you all sit down and eat before the food gets cold?” Rosalie tried to say in a stern voice, but she had a slight smile on her face. She really liked Seth, I guess you can say he grew on her over the years and she also seemed to like Hope. From what I’ve heard, Rosalie’s a lot softer now then she use to be; mom says it’s because of me. I can’t picture her ever being harsh; she’s always been like a mom and best friend all rolled into one.
“Sorry Rosalie!” Seth gave her one of his wolfish grins.
“Don’t worry about it, I could never stay mad at you; you’re the best pet a girl could ever have!” With that everyone started to laugh and then sat down to eat.
After breakfast Hope and I had a little chat.
“Congratulations! I’m so happy for you two.” I gave her another hug.
“Thanks, I mean it. If it wasn’t for you, I would never have met Seth.”
“I’m just glad that he found you, he’s like part of the family and now you’ll be part of it too. I missed you when you went away to school!”
“I missed you to. And I already feel like part of the family, except…”
Oh no, here we go.
“Don’t get worried. I’m sure you’re waiting for me to start grilling you about everything, but I’m not. I would like to know everything, especial now that I know I’m sticking around. But, we can do it a little at a time or you can just tell me the story of your family’s life or whatever.”
“Whenever you’re ready I’ll tell you or answer any questions you have.”
“I know, but right now isn’t that time. I know something big happened yesterday that probably needs to be dealt with; and there’s Leah and Nahuel’s wedding, not to mention Seth and I don’t want to wait to long to get married.”
“We’ll sit down soon and I’ll tell you everything. You are right about yesterday; but I can’t wait for you to know everything, so we can talk about the strange stuff that goes on together.”
“Okay, well let me know when it’s a good time for you.” With that we hugged again and I told her I needed to meet Grandpa for a check up with the twins, but that I’d catch up with her later.
Jacob and I took the twins to Grandpa’s office. When we got there, my parents, Jasper, and Alice were there still talking with him.
“Come on in and sit down. We’re just finishing up.” Grandpa seemed to be in a good mood and very happy. In fact, they all seemed happy; strange considering we know the Volturi are coming after us sometime in the future.
“So, by the look on everyone’s faces, I take it that your talk is going well?” Rose and I sat down next to dad, while Jacob and Willy sat next to Jasper.
“It’s been very informative. With Willy’s help we should be able to fill in the blanks very nicely.” Grandpa said as he looked at Willy, I’m guessing to see what his reaction was going to be. Willy had been staring at Jasper, but turned to look at Grandpa when his name was mentioned.
WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM ME?
“Well, I’m guessing you know what powers are yours and which ones are Rose’s for starter. But first, I’ll feel you all in on what we’ve been talking about.”
“Would you like us to leave?” Dad asked.
“No, Jacob and Nessie may have questions for you at some point, plus I’m sure you’d all like to know what Willy has to say.”
I looked around at everyone, would I be happy with this news too? And why was Willy so fixed on Jasper right now?
“Well, you know some of it. Some how Bella was unable to shield any of us, but I’m guessing one of the twins did. But there’s more to it, they kept her from shielding and it looks like they caused problems for Renata too.” Grandpa looked at Willy for an answer.
YOU’RE RIGHT, ROSE WAS SHIELDING EVERYONE, AND THERE WAS NO NEED FOR ANOTHER SHIELD. AND YES, ROSE’S POWER INTERFERS WITH OTHERS THAT SHIELD. SO, RENATA WASN’T ABLE TO DO ANYTHING AND GRANDMA COULDN’T EITHER.
“What about Bella? Why doesn’t her shield work on you? She says she can always hear you, and if we were all being shielded, why could we still hear you.”
ROSE’S SHIELD DOESN’T KEEP ME OUT, I DON’T KNOW WHY. MAYBE BECAUSE WE’RE CONNECTED, I KNOW WHAT SHE’S THINKING AND FEELING AT ALL TIMES. AND AS FOR GRANDMA, I’M NOT SURE WHY I CAN GET THROUGH HER SHIELD.
“I see. What about knowing what others are thinking? Edward has been the only one around, besides Aro who can do that. And you seemed to know what everyone was thinking.”
THAT’S ALSO ROSE, SHE CAN TUNE INTO SOMEONES THOUGHTS OR TUNE THEM OUT. IF SHE TOUCHES SOMEONE SHE CAN SEE EVERYTHING LIKE A MOVIE. SHE PASSES IT ON TO ME AND THAT’S HOW I KNOW.
“You said tunes in or out, what do you mean by that?”
SHE DOESN’T HEAR OR SEE EVERYTHING, JUST WHEN SHE WANTS OR NEEDS TO.
“So she was control over it?” Dad was impressed. He had to work on tuning people in and out, especially out.
YES, JUST LIKE SHE CAN CONTROL WHO SHE WANTS TO SHIELD OR NOT AND TO WHAT DEGREE.
“How did you know about the Volturi being bad, except for Marcus?” Grandpa was in awe.
I CAN FEEL WHO IS BAD AND GOOD, AND THEIR EMOTIONS; WHETHER THEY’RE HAPPY, SAD, ANGRY, AND SO ON. I ALSO KNOW TO WHAT DEGREE THEY’RE HAVING THAT FEELING.
“What about controlling peoples moods?”
SOMEWHAT, I THINK I WAS THE ONE TO BREAK THE HOLD THAT WAS OVER MARCUS. ALSO, I HELPED MOM AND DAD TO GET A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP, LAST NIGHT. BUT I HAVEN’T TRIED IT MUCH.
“So you two have a combination of things. Rose has the shielding like Bella, but more powerful and a combination of Edward and Aro with the mind reading, but with more control. You have the ability to project, like your mom, but again, with more control; and a combination of Jasper and Marcus with the emotion and feeling side of things.” Grandpa wasn’t really talking to any of us, but thinking out loud. “That’s interesting.”
We all looked at each other. It was interesting and very amazing. I couldn’t believe what they could do and I’m sure everyone felt the same way. I looked more closely at Jacob, but he looked more scared than anything else.
“Do you think they’ll be able to do more as they age?” Dad was the first to break the silence.
“There’s a possibility that there’s more. Usually it take’s time to build and control your power. Look at Nessie, her projecting without touching didn’t start tell she got pregnant and she’s still learning how to control it. You and Alice took time to be able to control your powers, along with Bella. But I don’t know; they’re still as much a mystery to me now as they were before the Volturi showed up.”
Just then Grandma and Rosalie walked in with the twins’ bottles. “A little birdie told us that they were hungry and getting tired. Maybe it’s time to call it a day with all this; they are babies not a science experiment.” Grandma’s tone was sweet and gentle, but Grandpa knew she was serious.
It's so good to understand the twins' powers (it's like they're a sponge, having all the powers that others around them have and somehow their powers are exponentially greater).. The chapter was awesome! Still, I'd like to hear from Rose's point of view..
