Chapter 1 Birthday
"Happy 4th birthday Nessie!" Aunt Alice yelled.
It was the day I've been waiting for, my birthday. I love birthdays,
especially Cullen parties.
You see, my Aunt Alice loves parties. I always wish to see what my
parents wedding looked like. My mom always tells me how beautiful
the wedding was. I wish I was a mind reader, like my dad.
My family is very interesting. My dad, Edward Cullen, protected my
mom, Isabella Cullen, while she was human. My dad even changed her!
They don't tell me a lot about her transformation but, my dad told me
that I almost made my mom die when I was born. They say that's the
reason why she was transformed but, I know my mom, that wasn't the
Anyway, not everyone I loved was at my party. My best friend,
Jacob Black, he wasn't here yet. My best friend is a werewolf, vampires
only enemy. I don't have the best nose compared to my family, but my
Aunt Rosalie is always complaining about the wet dog smell whenever
Jacob was around. I wondered if Jacob knew I loved him. He is so
adorable and super nice. He promised he would be there. He knows
what would happen if he wasn't here.
"Thanks Alice! The house looks amazing!" I replied.
"Ness, this is your 4/15th birthday! Imagine how your Sweet 16 is
going to be like." Alice said.
I've imagined my Sweet 16 many times. I couldn't imagine
something good because Jacob still wasn't here!
"Alice, please we are celebrating her 4th birthday not 5th." Mom
said. Alice and mom then started getting into an argument. I slipped out
of the party to call my Jacob.
The phone rang twice, the Jake answered.
"Hey, big bad wolf, where are you?"
"Renesmee! I'm going to be late."
"Why? As you say, a party isn't a party without you." I had to
giggle. My party isn't complete without him.
He laughed too. "Yea that's true. But, Charlie is at my house. Billy
says I can't leave until he's gone."
"Why is Charlie there? He should be with Ms. Clearwater!". I almost
"I know I know. I'll make it up to you by taking you out tomorrow."
I almost screamed! This is the chance I have been waiting for since
my 2 and a half birthday!
I tried to sound cool like "Thanks Jacob!" but I said "OMG! Thanks
"Your welcome. Okay, well you enjoy your party. I got to go."
"Yea I better get back before Alice bites my neck." I joked.
"Good one!" He laughed. "See you later."
We both said bye and I ran with inhuman speed to the party.
Before I could go back in, dad stopped me in my tracks.
"Renesmee, did you forget what you and your mother are doing
tomorrow?" he said coldly.
"No. I'm not a mind reader. What was there a surprise I was going
to receive?" I said.
"No. You must have forgotten, again. You and mom were going to
shop for your prom dress." He said upset that I forgot again.
"Dad, you know how much Jacob means to me. It seems like you
still haven't gotten that. Jake is as big in my life as you are. Mom will
let me go." I said pleading.
"No she won't. While you thought that no one noticed that you
were gone, we listened to your conversation. Your mother was very
upset that you forgot, again."
"Does it have to be at night? I can spend the day with mom and
go out with Jacob at night." I said at his angry face. I knew he would be
mad that I said 'go out'. He didn't like the idea of me and Jacob dating.
What I didn't like is, that he always kept secrets from me.
"You know your mother. She wants to make sure that Alice
doesn't force her to send you guys out again." he said.
"Well, then wake me up early tomorrow! I'm going out with
Jacob tomorrow!" I yelled.
The rest of the family came out. They all got worried when I
yelled. Of course, Uncle Jasper used his gift of mood control on my dad
and I. I calmed down for about a minute. When it came to Jacob and my
dad, I was never calm.
"Uncle Jasper, please stop the mood control! This is about Jacob!"
"Sorry Nessie." Jasper said.
I looked at my mom with pleading eyes. She knew I really liked
Jacob. She knew I loved my father. She knew prom was weeks away.
She knew Jacob was most likely going to take me to prom. She knew
that I wanted to go shopping ( it's my favorite activity!) but she also
knew that Jacob was important to me. She looked back at me with the
eyes that say "You know your father. He is trying to keep you away
from Jacob." Mom then turned to my father.
"Edward, prom is weeks away. Nessie and I can go shopping
next week." Mom said. I couldn't believe it! My mom is as protective as
"Bella! Don't you have a problem with our daughter dating
Jacob?" Edward yelled.
"You know what he did. This day was going to happen
eventually." Mom said. What did my Jacob do?
"What did Jacob do?" I said.
"I don't care if he did that! This is NOT the day my bad thoughts
come true!" Edward yelled.
"What did Jacob do?" I said louder. This was not going to be
another secret kept from me.
"WHAT DID JACOB DO?!?" I screamed.
They all looked at me. This was another secret that everyone
wanted to keep from me. This was a big Jacob secret. I wanted to know.
I needed to know.
My mom looked at my dad. She looked at him, like she was a
blind woman seeing the sun for the first time. My dad nodded. My mom
thought something and my dad nodded surrendering.
Mom looked slowly over at me. "Jacob imprinted on you." She
