                                                          Chapter 1 - Stench

 

                                                                     Jacob

 

            Nessie leaped gracefully across the river outside the house. The rest of us followed swiftly, me shifting onto four paws mid-flight. Immediately, the usual voices filled my head.

           “Hey Jake!” chirped Seth.

            “Greetings, Most High Alpha.” said Leah somberly.

            “Ha, ha. Hey guys.” I thought. Leah mentally cleared her throat. She hated it when I forgot to acknowledge her femininity.

            “And girl.” I added quickly. I didn’t have time to playfully squabble with Leah right now, the way I normally might have. We were on a hunting trip.

            “Got to make sure those lovely leeches get all their nutrition.” teased Leah. There was no more of the bitterness that had once constantly invaded her tone.

            “Jake! Stop talking to the voices in your head and hurry up! Otherwise there won’t be any good ones left.” yelled Bella from up ahead. I had fallen behind during my silent (well, silent to everyone besides Edward.) conversation. I picked up the pace, quickly flashing past everyone until I reached my intended target, Nessie. Her bronze curls were blowing in the breeze from her run, and her porcelain complexion was slightly flushed. I could hear her heart thrumming, three times as fast as my own, and her even breathing. She reached back, without looking, to touch her hand to my muzzle. It was a greeting for the other wolves. They chorused “hellos” back to her, though she couldn’t hear them.

            We came into a clearing, and caught the scent of elk in the air, about a mile south. I followed Nessie, and we arrived in front of the herd a few seconds later. She lunged efficiently at the largest one. I looked away. Even after all this time, six years, to be exact, it still grossed me out to watch them feed. Bella especially, because I remembered her as a human, and still thought of her as one. 

            Ah, Bella. How different things are for us now. We’re finally the way we were always supposed to be, just best friends, and nothing more.

            Nessie bounded over to me and touched my shoulder, showing me a picture of my wolf-self leaping at an elk, colored with a question of why I wasn’t doing it.  I looked down at her and rolled my eyes, then stalked towards a medium-size male elk. I took him down quickly, and sat down on my haunches to eat. I wasn’t really hungry. I was just going hunting to please Esme. Lately, she’d taken to organizing family hunting trips. What with me running around as a giant wolf half the time, and other members of the family involved in various pursuits, like remodeling an old crumbling house on Demarest St. (Alice), and getting their medical degree for the third time (Edward), she felt that we weren’t spending enough time together. And of course, the perfect way to get some quality time in is to kill a whole herd of elk together. What happened to good old-fashioned movie night?

            “Mmm, movie night. You all could watch Interview With a Vampire.” Leah commented. “And then Dracula to top it off.”  I heard Edward snort from twenty feet away. Bella shot him a confused look. He shook his head at her and waved his hand dismissively.

            “Edward finds you amusing.” I told Leah.

            “Good to know. So, anyway, are you done hunting yet?” she asked.

            “Yeah, almost. Why?” I asked.

            “Because I need to talk to you, stupid.” she said.

            “Believe it or not, that’s what we’re doing right now, Leah.” I shot back.

            “I mean, I need to talk to you when we don’t have a mental audience.” I caught a jumble of images from her, the most prominent coming with a scent. It was the vampire burn that I’d grown so used to. But this wasn’t from a familiar vamp. It was totally new to me. Definitely a cause for some worry.

            “Ok, I’ll be right there.” I told her. Through her eyes, I could see that she was pacing back and forth right in front of her house.

            “Hurry up.” I felt her mental presence fade out.

            Thankfully, everyone else was ready to go home. I didn’t want to alarm them if I didn’t have to. Of course, Edward might have heard me and Leah’s whole conversation anyway, but he didn’t look worried, so maybe he hadn’t been paying attention.

            I sprinted back toward home. Nessie took my sudden haste as a challenge, and started to race me. I purposely let her get ahead, just so I could admire her hair bouncing down her back as she ran. Not to mention, her legs didn’t look so bad either…. Edward loudly cleared his throat behind me. Sure, now he decides to listen.

            Nessie doesn’t know anything about the way I feel about her. I mean, she knows that I love her, but she thinks it’s more of a big-brother type love. And, don’t get me wrong, it was, until this last year. Then it started changing to a different kind of love. And now that she’s fully mature, I know that I need to tell her everything, but I’m not sure how.  You see, the thing is, Ness knows nothing about our imprint. That was one of the biggest arguments I ever had with Bella, since she became a vampire. She thought that I should have told Nessie about it when she was little, so that she could have had time to get used to the idea, instead of springing it on her when she got older. But I thought I should wait, so that Ness wouldn’t feel weird or uncomfortable. I also didn’t want her to feel obligated to be with me. I want her to be free to pick who she wants to be with. Not that it won’t tear my soul into little, snack-size pieces if she doesn’t pick me. But I want her to be happy. That’s the most important thing to me. There isn’t one thing that I wouldn’t do to make her happy. Anyway, now I’m kind of wishing I would have taken Bells’ advice. Cause really, what am I going to say to her? “Guess what Nessie? I’m your soul mate! Surprise!” Um, no.

            “You’ll find a way Jake. I know you will. And then you two will be as happy as Sam and Emily, or Jared and Kim.” Seth interjected into my monologue. I hadn’t realized that he was listening.

            “Thanks, kid.”

            “No problem. I’m gonna take off. I’m getting hungry, and I smell that Mom’s making bacon. You really better hurry, you know. Leah’s just about wetting herself with impatience over here.” said Seth.

            “Will do. Make sure to get some of that bacon before Charlie eats it all.”

            “No kidding. I don’t know how Bella used to cook for him all by herself. See ya later.” Seth’s presence faded out too. Ah, sweet silence.

            By now we were at the big white house on the river. Home. I ducked into some large bushes, and phased back to my human self. I quickly pulled on my shorts, and climbed out. Everyone else was inside already. I walked in the house and found Bella.

            “Hey Bells, I’m going down to Sue’s for a while.” I said.

            “Okay. Tell Charlie I say hi.” It was common knowledge that Charlie spent almost all his time at Sue’s now.

            “Sure thing.”

            I flew out the door, and ran like hell out to the garage, where I kept my bike. I kicked it on, and raced down the road to La Push. I could have run faster than the bike would go, but that might have freaked out some innocent passersby.

            I arrived at Sue’s to find Leah, still pacing, but in her human form now.

            “Okay Leah, where exactly did you find that foreign bloodsucker’s stench?” I demanded.

            “Right along the treaty line, and I went over to Charlie’s with Mom yesterday, and it was pretty strong there too.” she reported.

            “At Charlie’s?” I choked out in alarm.

            “Hey, I didn’t say it made sense.”

            “Was the scent outside or inside?’

            “Outside.”

            “Well, that’s a little better, I guess. At least it wasn’t inside with Charlie. But why would it be there in the first place?” I wondered.

            “Your guess is a good as mine. Were your tame vamps expecting any visitors in the last few days?”

            “No, but Alice has been getting these strange flashes about the Volturi. They seem to be trying to make a decision about something, but she can’t tell what. I ‘spose it could have been one of them, but I don’t see what they would want outside Charlie’s house.”

            “Those Italian leeches? Ugh. Have you said anything about this to the Cullens?” Leah asked.

            “I didn’t want to get them all worked up for nothing, so I don’t think they know, unless Edward picked it out of my head earlier. But it didn’t seem like he did.”

            “Well, you better tell them. They could probably shed some light on the subject. Maybe one of their friends did drop by, and was going to have Charlie for a snack, but then decided they weren’t really in the mood for middle-aged police chiefs that day.”

            “I’ll mention it to them.” I said, giving her a half-amused, half-exasperated look.

            I turned and headed inside the house.

            “Where are you going? I thought you were going to talk to your bloodsuckers.” Leah said.

            “In a minute. I’m supposed to tell Charlie ‘hi’ from Bella.”

            I opened the front door and walked into Sue’s tiny living room. Sue and Charlie were sitting on the couch together, watching a football game. Luckily, Charlie had found a woman who had just as much passion for sports as he did.

            “Hi guys. How’s the game?”

            “Oh, just fine.” Sue said, as Charlie screamed his head off at the TV. Something about a “wussy quarterback”. “Come and watch it with us.”

            “Oh, no thanks. I have to be going anyway. I’m just supposed to tell Charlie ‘hi’ from Bella.” I had absolutely no desire to watch any type of sporting event with Charlie ever again. The last time I did, his face had turned so purple from excitement, I was afraid I was going to have to call an ambulance.  Even now it was nearing an unhealthy shade of magenta.

            “Thanks Jake. And tell her and Ness to come see me once in a while. I’m going to forget what they look like soon.” said Charlie, momentarily extracting himself from the game.

            “Okay. Bye, guys.”

            I left the house and threw myself back on my bike. I put it in gear, and roared off to the Cullens’.

Chapter 2 – Movie Night

Renesmee


I heard Jacob’s bike pull into the garage. I was glad that he was back. It seemed kind of strange that he just rushed off to Sue’s like that, especially on Grandma Esme’s designated Family Day.
Mom came around the corner holding a pan of brownies.
“Do you want to try these? Grandma made these for Jake, but maybe you’ll like them too.” she asked.
“No thanks, Mom.” Human food in almost any color, shape, or size disgusted me. But Mom and Jacob are forever insisting that I try new and increasingly gross varieties of it. The only kind of food that I didn’t find completely repulsive was a tomato. I have no idea why.
“Okay, suit yourself. You know, I used to love these when I was human. I wonder….” She pulled off a tiny corner of one brownie, put it in her mouth, and promptly made a face and spit it out the open window.
“Bleh. I guess I see your point.” she said. She then flitted back to the kitchen.
The back door opened, and I rushed to meet Jake, trying to ignore the tingles in my stomach. It’s just Jacob. I told myself sternly. He’s like your brother. Don’t be getting these weird quivery feelings about him. And stop thinking about them before your Dad hears. Jake walked in the door, having to stoop a little because he was so tall. He gathered me up in a hug, and I thought my heart was going to take flight, it was beating so fast. Great, now Dad was going to think I’m having a heart attack and come bursting in here in about two seconds, spoiling my alone time with Jake. It seemed like no one wanted to leave us alone together anymore. I’m fine, Dad. I thought. Nothing to worry about. “Hi, Nessie!” Jake said, grinning from ear to ear and showing all of his pearly white teeth, which looked even whiter against his smooth russet skin.
“Hey Jake!” I said, looking up at him and beaming. The quivers came back in full force.
“Jacob! I know you’re in here, because I can smell you. You smell awful, by the way. You and Nessie come to the living room. We’re watching movies!” Aunt Alice called. For some reason, this made Jacob laugh.
“Come on.” Jacob said. “I smell brownies.”
“Don’t even bother. Mom already tried to make me eat them.” I said.
“Awww, darn it.” he said laughingly.
When we got to the living room, the movie was already playing.
“Interview With a Vampire? Really?” I said doubtfully. We all busted out laughing.
“I got the idea from Leah this morning.” Dad said. “And we’re watching Dracula next.”
Wow, imagine that. Real vampires watching Interview With a Vampire. How ironic.
Though the blood on screen was making us a little thirsty, we all had a good time poking fun at the ridiculous vampire myths, especially when Uncle Emmett did a very spirited imitation of burning in the sun. But Jake seemed like something was on his mind the whole time. He didn’t even say anything when Aunt Rose decided to put in The Wolfman, just to annoy him.
As the credits on the The Wolfman rolled, Jacob got up and stretched, then walked out of the room. I quietly followed him.
He went all the way to the woods, then stopped, like he was waiting for me. I caught up to him quickly, and put my arm around him, only because he looked so worried, I told myself, not for any other reason.
“Is something wrong Jake? You were in the same room with Aunt Rose for over four hours, and you didn’t throw one single punch at her. That’s just not normal.” I said, slightly teasingly, but still seriously. He hesitated, then said,
“Well, it’s probably nothing, but this morning Leah told me that she caught the scent of a vampire that we don’t know near the treaty line, and….also outside Charlie’s house.”
“Wait. What? At Grandpa’s? He’s okay, right? I asked anxiously.
“Don’t worry, he’s fine. Looks like whoever was there didn’t even go inside. I just thought maybe I should check it out with Alice. Since she’s been seeing that stuff about the Volturi lately…”
“But why would the Volturi be at Grandpa’s? That doesn’t make any sense.”
“Yeah, I know.”
“Let’s go talk to Alice.” I grabbed his warm hand and pulled him with me as we ran back to the house.
Jake repeated what he told me to Alice. Before even saying anything, her eyes got that familiar unfocused look. After a moment, she came back to the present.
“Well, I don’t see anything too unusual. You might want to buy a scratch-off ticket tomorrow, Esme. The Volturi are still waffling around. And Emmett, you’re going to hit your head in…. never mind.” Emmett had just hit his head on a low lighting fixture, ripping it from the ceiling in the process. Grandma frowned at him and sighed.
“I guess all there is to do is keep our eyes open, then.” said Dad, who had been listening. He, and Alice left the room to go tell everyone else about Grandpa’s mysterious visitor. Grandma left a moment later, muttering about higher ceilings.
I yawned. Jake did too. It was kind of annoying sometimes, being the only person in your house who has to sleep.
“I better get home. ‘Night Ness.” yawned Jake.
“Goodnight Jake. Love you.” I said.
“Love you too, Nessie.” he said, but there was something subtly different about the way he said it then, from the other thousands of times he had said it before.
Awsome :)
Love it =)
Thanks for your nice comments, everyone! =)
love it!!!!!!!!!! more please!?
Really good! :]
Really good!!!! Keep me posted when you write more!
Chapter 3 - Thinking

Jacob

I felt less worried as I ran home through the forest on four paws. If Alice says that those Italian jerks are still being indecisive, then we must be safe, at least for now. It has always been in the backs of our minds for the last six years that the Volturi will come back for us. We don’t know how, or when, or what bogus claim they’ll make against us this time, but we know it’s coming. They want to destroy us, or at least take away a good chunk of our family. It’s pretty crazy that now I count myself with the vampires, when seven years ago I would have liked nothing more than to crush them into diamond-hard rubble. I would have gladly helped the Volturi get rid of them. And then I would have given a hell of a shot to destroying the Volturi, too. But now that’s all different, because of Renesmee. I don’t even want to think about what my life would be like right now, if it weren’t for her. I would probably be running around as a wolf in South America, or somewhere, still trying to escape the pain of losing Bella. Or maybe I would have found a successful way to kill myself by now. Either way, it wouldn’t have been pretty.
Sometimes I think about how strange it is that I went from being in love with Bella, to having her daughter become my whole world, in one instant. But that’s how imprinting works. It’s like, gravity moves, and then she’s the only thing tying you to the earth. Once you find your other half, she’s all that matters, no matter who else you have in your life. Just look at Sam and Emily. Sam was in love with Leah, but then he saw Emily, and that was it. It really hurt Leah too, and Sam hated that he was hurting her, but he couldn’t help it. Leah is happier now, though. I’d like to say that being part of my pack has really made that possible, but I won’t. Okay, maybe I will.
“Now, don’t take all the credit for my rehabilitation. And, thank you for recounting my life story for me. Just what I wanted to hear.” said Leah sarcastically.
I surprised yelp escaped from me. I had been so deep in thought that I hadn’t even noticed when Leah phased.
“Holy crap Leah! You scared the hell out of me! Don’t do that!” I thought.
“You were the one who was so deep in your own mush-fest that you didn’t even notice there was an extra person in your head.” she paused “But you’re right. I am a lot happier now. And being part of your stupid pack is probably a big reason why I am. Not having to see Sam’s face every day, not having to listen to how he thinks about Emily, it’s such a relief. I know I still talk smack about the vamps, but it’s just for my own amusement. They’re really not that bad, aside from the smell.”
“I’m glad that you feel that way Leah.” I said awkwardly. I didn’t really expect to get into a discussion about her innermost feelings.
“Okay, I’ll leave before my feelings make your guy brain explode.” she said laughingly “I was just taking a quick run anyway. See you later Boss.” I felt the silent shimmer that meant someone was phasing, and then my mind was alone again.
I ran faster now, eager to get home and to bed. Maybe I’d hang out at my house tomorrow, for once. That would make Billy happy. He always complains how he never sees me anymore. But…the thought of that much time away from Nessie made me nervous. I’ll have to see if Edward and Bella mind if I steal their daughter for the day.
I made it home, and collapsed into bed immediately. My last thought before I drifted off was of Nessie, and her bronze curls bouncing down her back as she ran.
I woke up early, and my first instinct was to rush over to Edward and Bella’s to see Nessie. But then I remembered that I had decided to spend the day with Billy. Darn. After a moment of contemplation, I decided to run over to the Cullens’, steal Ness, and then come back here. Best of both worlds.
I was out the door before I was fully awake, causing me to slip on a patch of wet grass and cut my head on a rock. Oh well, I thought, it’ll be healed before I phase anyway. Being a wolf certainly had its benefits sometimes.
I phased before I was out of the view of the house, so I might have accidentally flashed Billy, if he was looking. Whoops.
Two minutes later, I showed up on the doorstep of Edward and Bella’s cottage. Since I knew that those two weren’t asleep, I didn’t bother being quiet until I got near Nessie’s room, in case she still was. I found Edward and Bella in the living room, sitting on the couch holding hands, and yet somehow managing to each read a book at the same time.
“Morning, guys.” I said.
“Good morning, Jake.” they said.
“Can I borrow Ness for the day?” I asked hopefully. They exchanged a look.
“What for?” asked Bella warily.
“Cause I wanted to see Billy for the first time in about six years, but I don’t like being away from Nessie for that long.”
“Well, I guess so.” said Bella, looking nervously at Edward.
Suddenly, Nessie appeared, looking tousle-haired and rumpled, and completely beautiful.
“You’re with me today Ness.” I informed her. She looked confused for a moment, but then her eyes lit up.
“I’ll be right back.” she said, while rushing to the bathroom. She returned three minutes later, looking, if possible, even more stunning than before.
“Bye guys!” she sang, grabbing my hand and towing me out the door.
Wow! Pleaze keep the story coming! Wow! Its hard to explian because their are no words it is that gooood!
so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! loves it all so far!
