Sequal to unnamed love
“ HAPPY NEW YEAR!” I kissed Seth as the big ball in New York City dropped on the TV.
We were at Jared and Kim’s house down in La Push Washington, my home now for the past few years.
I went around the living room giving everyone a hug. First I hugged my best friend Claire, Quil’s imprint, and I hugged Renesmee Black last. She was shy around me still, but we finally were becoming friends, minus the fact that her perfect beauty creeped me out.
Everyone cheered with glasses of wine, while Claire, and I just sat on the couch. Claire was only 19 and couldn’t drink just yet, and I had news that allowed me to dismiss alcoholic beverages.
Seth smiled at me, the smile that said, ’ share the news now.’ So I stood from the couch and Seth walked over to stand next to me.
“ So. . .we’ve got big news to tell everyone!” Seth said loudly. Everyone’s children were upstairs fast asleep.
Everyone turned to look at us to, and so I said, “ I’m pregnant.” That brought on a round of more hugs. It was perfect timing, a new year, a new beginning, a family for me and Seth.
I was 23, I think I deserved to have a family, and a beautiful little Seth running around was my dream of a perfect family.
Emily sat down with me and Claire on the couch, and we talked about it. “ So how far along are you?” She asked, half of her face smiling. “ About a month I think.” I said.
“ Well I could tell something was up, your glowing.” She said. Claire slumped a bit on the couch. I knew what was bothering her, and I felt a little bad. Quil and her were the only imprinted couple that weren’t married yet, and it made her really upset. So me having a baby with my imprint didn’t make her feel any better about her situation.
I wrapped my arm around her. “ It’s okay.” She rolled her eyes and smiled at me. She was so matured.
Quil ran over to the couch and kissed her on the cheek. “ Happy New Year Clair bear!”
They both laughed and got off the couch together. Quil was the youngest looking of all the werewolves. He had to keep phasing so that he could wait for Claire to grow up so they could be together. Brady and Beth ( his imprint) were the first to leave. Beth had a 7 month baby and they wanted to be home early. Seth, me, Emily, Sam, and their children were the last to leave. Claire had fallen asleep at 2:30 and Quil had carried her all the way home.
It was now 3:47, and I was about to pass out, I was exhausted. Seth gave me a piggy back ride to our car, and I never managed to stay awake for the ride home. The next thing I remember was waking up in our bed, in the dark. According to the alarm clock by my bed it was 5 o’clock in the morning.
The room had an eerie feel to it. I couldn’t go back to sleep. Maybe that was because of the pregnancy, but I wasn’t too sure. I hopped out of bed, and wrapped a quilt around me, so I wouldn’t be cold.
I looked out of our bedroom window. I caught my breath.
Outside by our old Oak tree, there seemed to be a man there. Just standing there staring up at the house. The Full moon’s light was just bright enough for me too see the color of the man’s eyes.
Blood red. And his skin, pale white. I held my breath now, not daring to move. I’d lived enough to know what this was. It was a vampire, at my house, standing there, just watching me. I wanted to dive under my covers like a little girl, because I’d never seen one of these vampires before. The kind that drank only human blood. All the vampires I had ever known where good, they drank animal blood, so therefore they had golden eyes. The last time I had ever seen a vampire was a year ago when Bella and Edward stopped by for Renesmee’s birthday party.
The vampire still stared at me, with his eyes just looking right at me. But oddly enough there was something familiar about him. The way his brown hair looked, and the way his face was shaped. He looked like a sculptors dream. I sucked in a sharp breath, I blinked, but he was gone.
I ran back to the bed and cuddled closer to Seth’s warm body. This couldn’t be. He wasn’t like that. He didn’t drink human blood.
And he never looked like that. He never stared at me with a murderous glare. I was terrified of him, a person I once loved.
That wasn’t Tyler, I tried to convince myself, but I knew that I was wrong. I saw what I saw, and my eyes never played tricks on me.
( I'm looking for a banner. . .)
Hello everyone! I haven't been on in a year! Can you believe it? I decided to complete damaged love this summer, and I hope you are all still willing to read of what becomes of Annie and her loves
I let go. I let go of the feelings that had hurt me. I made the decision I did for a reason. And I would forget about Tyler, and my vampire self. I would forget about all that and focus on my beautiful child that was growing inside of me.
It was really hard not to focus on that because almost as soon as I woke up I had the feeling to barf.
Blast, morning sickness. I ran to the toilet. Gross.
Seth followed in after me, because in my rush I didn’t close the door.
“ Annie! Oh my gosh, are you okay?” He said patting me on the back.
“ I’m fine! It’s just a little morning sickness.” I wiped my mouth and rinsed it in the sick with some water. “ Now, I want some breakfast. Maybe some German food. Do we have a German restaurant near by?” I asked Seth. Seth just laughed, and held my hand as we walked downstairs together.
The following week was pretty regular. I went to work, Seth and I hung out, and we had some friends over too. I had just got done barfing in the toilet when the phone rang.
I answered it.
“AHHHHHH!!! ANNIE, ANNIE, ANNIE! AHHHH!!!!” I held the phone away from my face. The screaming was really loud.
“ Calm down and tell me what it is!” I said, I knew it was Claire.
“ QUIL PROPOSED! WE’RE GETTING MARRIED! I’M ENGAGED!”
And then I was screaming into the phone, jumping up and down right along with Claire.
Seth came running around the corner half dressed, worry, and fear all over his face. He had misunderstood my screams.
“ Claire and Quil are engaged.” I mouthed to him. He laughed and smiled, walking away.
Claire continued to scream, and I invited her over.
I got dressed and got out some orange juice, and when Claire came she was glowing. On her left had was a ring, and it was some ring. I held her hand in my hand, examining the ring.
“ Wow. I didn’t know Quil had it in him to pick out a ring like this.” She smiled up at me.
“ I know. But it’s perfect!” We hugged each other and jumped up and down.
“ So do you still have doubts?” I asked. I was asking her, but also myself.
“ Nope!” She smiled and we hugged again. I couldn’t help but smile too. Nope, no more doubts. No more sadness just happiness all around.
She stayed for just a moment longer than left. She wanted to rest for a bit, she knew that with Alice and I as friends a lot of wedding planning was in her horizon.
I sat at the kitchen table and Seth came down to join me. “ That’s the last of us.” He said.
I looked up at him. “ How do you mean?”
“ No more imprints.” He smiled. “ No more wolves either.” He said.
“ What do you mean?” I asked, he wasn’t making sense.
“ There’s no reason now for us to phase, Annie. No vampires in the area, other than the Cullen’s of course. But there isn’t any threat. I won’t have to phase ever again. Neither will Sam, Quil, Jared, Brad, none of us except Jacob. So our little one…” He softly put his hand on my stomach,
“ Won’t have to change. No threats, no vampires, no bad blood.”
I put my left hand over top of his. Of course I had worried or not whether my baby would phase. And I know that Emily and Sam were worried for Robbie, he was getting older, and soon he would be at the age he would phase. The worry strained them.
“ No vampires, and no bad blood. I like that. I don’t think I could handle a werewolf son, or a daughter.” I said half joking half being honest.
A werewolf daughter. Immediately my thoughts jumped onto Leah. She didn’t live around here anymore. After Seth and I got married she left in search of nothing really. She just needed some time to breathe and let everything go. She visited from time-to-time. She made me nervous. Would my little baby catch the bad temper?
But it was in my genes, or Seth’s. Leah had a long history with Sam, Emily’s husband and Robbie’s father. They used to be lovers, but then imprint took its toll and Leah’s world turned upside down. Maybe that’s why she still couldn’t be around her brother. Her brother had found me, the imprint of his life, and she would never be imprinted on or imprint herself. That just wasn’t how it worked.
I sighed and patted Seth’s hand. Nothing to worry about, I told myself.
Seth and I spent the rest of the day peacefully and went to bed. I dreamt nothing scary or life altering that night. Just about a little owl hooting at the moon. And bellow it a little wolf howling at the moon. I smiled in my sleep.
The next morning I woke up feeling refreshed, Seth was just waking up and we walked downstairs together and enjoyed a small breakfast. I was just rinsing the dishes off when the phone rang. Seth went to answer it. As he did so there was a knock on the door. An urgent knock that was low and hard. I put the dishes down and walked to the door. I could here Seth’s voice. It sounded horrified. My heart thudded louder and louder as I reached for the handle, the knocks on the door continuing. Finally I opened the door, shocked beyond belief by who was standing there.
“ Annie.” They said. “ Annie, there’s a problem.” His face was scared. So was I.
Here's so more! Hopefully you guys are still on the website, and new fans are always welcomed. Go Team Seth! And Go Team Tyler!
“ Edward…what?” I could barley talk. My voice was just a whisper.
“ Something’s happened. And it isn’t good.” He said. His black eyes looked at me deeply.
Seth came running down the hallway. “ Alice just told me what she saw.” He told Edward. He wrapped his warm arms around me. Edward said “ Good. A few of your pack members are already around La Push searching. I suggest you go with them. They need you Seth, go.” Seth nodded once and left through the front door Edward was standing at. “ May I come in?” He asked politely.
I wasn’t much of a fan of Edward. His looks were too good, they reminded me of Tyler. Edward looked at me with deep sorrow. He understood. I lead him to the living room, we sat.
I thought. But I didn’t even need him to tell me. I always new he was around. Watching me, waiting for me. Tyler was here.
“ No.” Edward said shaking his head. “ He wasn’t here, he is here.” He shook his head.
“ I don’t know why. But Alice, she saw…she saw him coming. He’s looking for you. But he can’t locate your sent you’re too masked up with wolf stench.”
But he’ll find me eventually. I knew he would.
“ Yes, eventually he will.”
And what would I do? What would I do if I saw Tyler after all these years? I would scream? I would shout? I had never truly been afraid till now. Tyler was stalking me. And it wasn’t the same now that I was married. I put my hands on my stomach. My baby.
If an immortal being that still loved me found out I was pregnant with some other man’s child what would he do? He would surely kill. Who? It was clear. He would kill everyone.
Edward listened to my thoughts. Nodding along with it. I didn’t know what I could do. Seth was out there now. Right now. What if they ran into Tyler? “ No…” I moaned softly. “ This can’t happen…”
But it had to happen. I would have lived all my life thinking “What if?” some how it had to end. Some one had to die. And it all lead back to that one miserable day that I drove to La Push and jumped. Who knew a simple jump would start something so terrible?
Terrible. A vampire was stalking me. The kind of stalking that only crazy people do. Tyler had gone crazy.
My mind recalled the night when I saw him outside. I knew I saw him. I just knew it. Those red eyes were real. Bella was wrong, just because we knew him to drink animal blood didn’t mean that he stuck to it. He killed Alyse Bennett and threw her over a bridge making it look like suicide. He was warning me.
He was coming for me.
Edward just watched me as I pieced everything together. He had no words of comfort.
I didn’t dislike Edward as much now, he wasn’t a crazy stalker, at least not anymore.
Edward smiled when he heard that one.
“ We all have pasts.” He said. But soon he was somber once more. “ It’s obvious to me now what Tyler wants. You’re right Annie. And I don’t know what do to. We can only have you’re family stay on patrol for so long before Tyler attacks. I’ve seen Alice’s vision. Tyler wants blood. And he isn’t stopping.”
Edward didn’t sugar coat this, for this I was thankful. He grimaced at nothing really.
I shifted awkwardly. Usually I was a good hostess. I usually offered a drink or a snack. But that wasn’t something I felt like I should offer Edward.
He laughed. “ No, I suppose offering me that isn’t the same as offering your other friends.”
“ Edward?” I asked him.
“ Yes Annie?”
I sighed. I didn’t know how to ask this. Edward looked at me curiously, he didn’t know what I was going to ask.
“ When Bella loved Jacob, did, did you ever imagine your life without her?”
He looked at me first with surprise, but then with sadness. “ Yes and no. I had left Bella once before. In the darkest of days. I left my only reason to live. The worst mistake of my life. But in that time that I was gone Bella found a good friendship in Jacob Black. That’s when Jacob fell in love with her and she almost did too.” Edward squinted his eyes together. Editing the story.
“ Soon Bella and I were together again, but I could see the change between them. Then she fell even deeper. They kissed and we were engaged. So much had happened. In the end she told Jacob good-bye, and married me as a human.” He looked at me, really looked at me.
“ My life without Bella was terrible. But my life with Bella while she loved someone else was almost worse. But I knew that she was alive and well. So I could have lived with her decision in the end.”
Looking at Edward, just by looking in his eyes I could see so much. All of what Bella had put him through. He loved her. For a moment I hated Jacob. In the world of vampires Jacob Black sucked.
What I did then surprised Edward, and myself. I leaned on Edward’s chest and sat there. He put his arms around me. Not romantically, never, we were both happily married. But just for comfort. He had been through so much.
“ So have you.” He said to me.
Enough to even kill me, I added. He sighed. “ Yes, I suppose. But now nothing will happen to you. You have such a big strong family.”
I did, I had vampires and werewolves. Maybe that was enough to stop Tyler. Enough to stop him from harming my Seth. Or maybe my baby.
I didn’t love him anymore. I was scared of him. I just wish I could go back in time. Not to change my childhood or to have met Seth sooner or to have been nicer to my mother and father. But to change the way I felt about Tyler. To have him not love me too, to have him not look at me the way he did. I wished he would have fallen in love with Elizabeth when he had the chance. I wish I had met Seth before I moved. I wanted to change my emotions from the past. But it couldn’t be done.
Edward let go of me and got up. “ Renesmee and Jacob are here too see you. I should go.” He looked at me and smiled. “ All will be well Annie. Our families are strong.” With that he left, and entered his daughter and his son-in-law.
“ Hello Annie.” Renesmee said shyly. Jacob didn’t say anything he had his hand on the small of his wife’s back and led her to the couch where I sat.
“ How is it?” I asked him.
“ Nothing. Just his scent. It’s everywhere. He’s looking for you Annie, he’s really looking.” Jacob said in a strained voice.
I knew that. But it didn’t settle the horrific feeling inside of me.
“ And Seth? Where is he?” I asked my voice was shaking.
“ Don’t worry about him Annie, he’s fine. He’s angry, but that energy is keeping pumped and alive. Whenever he runs into Tyler…it won’t be pretty.”
I nodded. It would be okay. Edward said that our families were large. They would protect each other. Seth would be fine.
Jacob went to the kitchen. I wasn’t mad, whenever the boys came over they always helped themselves to food. It was fine. “ There’s leftovers on the top shelf in the fridge!” I called to him.
I heard the fridge door open and shut.
Renesmee soon joined me on the couch I was sitting on. Her warm hand grabbed my cold hand.
“ Everything will be fine. You’ll see. Aunt Alice only saw him come closer. He will attack. But I wouldn’t worry. I’ve been around long enough to see my family at work. Nothing will happen to you.”
Renesmee continued to smile at me, like nothing was wrong. She was so…different. She was human, and a vampire. She was beautiful, but she was scary. Her big brown eyes were warm. I didn’t trust her. I didn’t like her. She was nice, she was my sister in a way. But I couldn’t be around her. Everything about her was good, but it seemed sinister. She couldn’t be Bella and Edward’s daughter, it was wrong. I took her hot hands off of mine and went to the bathroom. I flushed my face with water.
I remember the first time I had met Renesmee. I didn’t like her than either. Too much like Tyler. I remember not like liking Edward. Too much like Tyler.
Now he was going to kill me.
Suddenly I didn’t want to have to see another vampire for the rest of my life.
I left the bathroom and headed upstairs to bed. I needed to sleep this off. Everything was just so messed up.
