“Yeah, so I totally reeled her in, saying I needed ‘girl advice’ about what to get my mom for her birthday,” Embry was telling me, a slight chuckle in his voice. “And she’s all like, oh let me help you, you poor thing. Man, I love it when they fall for the innocent act.”
I put my hand on his shoulder and shook my head. “Embry, I hate to break it to you, but they aren’t falling for any act. You are innocent.”
“Am not, I curse. And I ride dirt bikes, and I beat up the football team’s captain in my senior year. How is that innocent?” He argued back immaturely.
I didn’t reply, mostly because I was laughing so hard. Embry and I just got back from running on the beach, and we were heading back to my house to watch the monster truck rally on TV.
“Dude, you’ve sworn to virginity until you get married. Suck luck?” I punched him lightly in the shoulder.
“Well, what about you? All wrapped around Ally’s finger? I’ve never seen a guy as whipped as you.”
“Man…since when is being whipped a bad thing?” I asked, thinking about Ally‘s good morning…I licked my lips, remembering our fun time.
“Ok, gross. Don’t talk to me about my sister that way. It already freaks me out when all of you think about your girls like that. The next time I see Kim dressed in lingerie or Ally taking a shower, or Emily dancing the salsa, I swear I’m gonna hurl.”
“Well, who told you to look then?” I sniggered.
“I can’t help it if it’s in my frikkin’ head!” He exclaimed. “Anyway, at least Quil doesn’t think about Claire that way.”
“Yet,” I said simply, opening the door to my wonderful-smelling home. I swear, it always smelt like cookies or flowers or bar-b-que. Amazing.
“Ally, we’re home!” I yelled, taking my shoes off.
“Jacob?” Ally’s sweet voice came from upstairs. I looked up and saw her leaning across the balcony. “Hey.”
“Hey,” I grinned up at her.
“I made some really yummy dinner. Embry, are you staying for the Monster Trucks?” She asked, coming downstairs. She was wearing her apron that said ‘kiss me, I’m f-ing cooking for you’ on it. I leaned in and gave her a quick kiss then rubbed her tummy.
Two months since we found out we were having a baby.
“Hell yes, bring on the monstahs!” He yelled, jumping onto the couch. Ally gave him a high five and sat down next to him. I shook my head and sat on the other side of her, digging into the nachos she made.
“You didn’t have to cook, you know,” I said while they turned on the TV. She ignored me, completely engrossed in the truck show. I laughed, leaning back and putting my arm around her.
No other girl I’d ever met would be this into a monster truck show. I loved her more than anything else. During the show, she pigged out and nearly killed Embry because he double dipped in her guacamole or something. Once it was over, she sat back and became interested in me again. Shock.
“Why are you staring at me like that?” She asked. I smirked at her.
“You know what? You are unlike any other girl in the world.”
“I know, I’m just special like that.” she grinned.
“Ok, I’m leaving before the 80s love show starts up in here,” Embry sighed, getting up.
“Embry, you have to come to dinner tonight, ok?” Ally asked, also getting up.
“Because I said so,” she said with a ring of finality. He shrugged and walked to the door.
“All right, as long as there’s food, I’ll be there.” He waved and left, closing the door behind him.
“Oh, there’ll be food… among other things,” Ally grinned.
“Uh oh…Alyson, you’ve got that evil smile on your face… I’m scared.”
“Don’t worry about it, Jakey. I’m going to go get ready.”
“Ready for what?” I asked.
“Duh, the doctor’s appointment. Oh my gosh, did you forget again?” She asked, her eyes flashing in anger.
“What, me? Forget? Never, darling,” I smiled. Actually, I did forget.
“Good,” she smiled, going upstairs.
I sighed and threw my head back. This pregnancy thing is harder than it looks. And I wasn’t even the one having the kid.
“All right Ally, I’m just going to need you lie down here for your first ultrasound, sweetheart.” The doctor laid her down and lifted the hem of her +44 t-shirt. I growled slightly at the woman, the werewolf instinct to protect erupting at the sight of someone else looking at my mate.
“Jake, come here.” Ally gave me a warning look and held my hand tightly. I watched in awe as the doctor rubbed this jelly-like thing on Ally’s stomach. It was already getting larger, now a slight bulge above her sweatpants.
She started asking Ally questions that I did NOT want to hear. Something about irregular bleeding and the v-word and then about vomiting. Ew, ew, ew!
“Get that look off your face, Jacob. It’s all normal.” Ally rolled her eyes at me.
“Sorry,” I mumbled, watching as the doctor put some sort of weird scanning thingy against Ally’s stomach. The wire connected to a TV and then this black and white thing showed up on the screen.
“Awwwww.” Ally looked like she was about to cry in happiness. I raised an eyebrow and stared at the screen.
“Is that it? Is that the baby?”
“No, it’s your car. Obviously it’s the baby!” She said sarcastically, glaring at me. I tried to amend my last statement.
“Aww, it’s so… cute…” I said, looking at the little round thing.
Actually, there were two little round things, but I guess that was just her lunch or something. Poor baby, having to swim in there with the food. Wait, I thought they had their own little room in there?
“Wait a moment, what is that?” The doctor said, standing closer to the screen. “Oh my…”
“What is it, Dr. Mollina?” Ally asked, looking scared. “Is something wrong?”
“Oh no, dear, nothing is wrong. It looks like… I may be wrong, but… it looks like you’re having twins.”
A moment of silence, please and thank you.
“TWINS?” Ally shrieked, smacking the scanner away from her belly.
“Twins? You mean… like, two? Two babies?” I tried to add it up in my head. It didn’t make sense.
“Yes, see, there are two embryonic sacs, here,” she said, pointing to the two round things.
“Oh my gosh, I’m gonna…” Ally started to pant. “I have to… I’m going to throw up!”
She got up and ran into the adjoining bathroom and I heard the water running. I collapsed into the chair next to the table and could feel some vomit in my own stomach.
“Two?” I whispered to myself. “Like… two rooms. Two cribs. Two mouths…two babies crying, two bodies to feed and clothe… two babies to take care of… twice the diapers, twice the teenage years.”
“Jacob? Are you all right? You look green in the face…” the doctor started to rub my back in case I might start throwing up also. My throat was dry and I looked up as Ally came back into the room.
“Alyson? Jacob? You two seem very unstable… I’ll give you a few minutes alone, shall I?” She asked, nodding at us and leaving the room.
The silence of the room was deafening and the rain that was constant over Forks hit the windows with loud tip-taps.
“Ally?” I said softly, staring at her as she stared at the continuing ultrasound picture.
“Twins, Jake? What the hell are we going to do?” Tears streamed down her face and my heart broke slightly.
“Ally, baby.” I picked her up and put her in my lap, pushing her hair away from her face. I kissed her tears and wiped them away. “Listen, I know it’s going to be hard…”
“Right, really hard. But still, we can do it…we’ll just have to be prepared. Double prepared.”
“Jacob. Think about it… everything we’ve been worrying about… times two.”
“Well… at least it’s not triplets…or quadruplets, right?” I smiled.
“Right. But still… having two babies… going through two labors. Oh my God,” she shuddered.
“It can’t be too hard… I mean, people do it everyday,” I shrugged.
Wrong thing to say, Jacob Black.
“What? What do you mean it can’t be that hard? You’re not the one who has to do it! And, no, Jake, people don’t have to do it! WOMEN have to do it. I hate MEN!!!” She yelled, getting up and walking to the other side of the room.
“I know, and all women, especially you, are much more honorable then us men. You guys deserve much more, and I’m going to help you as much as I can, I promise.”
“Jacob. You forgot about our appointment today and you just got a new job. You can’t be there for me all the time!”
“Well, someone will always be there! That’s the plus in living so close to everyone. I’ll make sure someone is always with you.”
“What happens when after labor, then? How are we going to pay for all the stuff? Two cribs. Twice the diapers. Twice the clothes, and twice… everything!”
“I don’t know just yet, Ally, but we’ll figure it out somehow…” I got up and held her small hands in my own. “Listen, take a deep breath…”
She took a deep breath and closed her eyes, sighing.
“I will never let anything bad happen to you, ok? I will keep you and our babies safe and fed, and clothed. All the time. You don’t have to worry about a thing, no stress, no problems, all right?”
“Jake.” She opened her eyes. “It’s not as easy as you think. You can’t handle it all on your own.”
“I can,” I insisted.
“No, you can’t.” She put her hand on my mouth before I could retort. “But fine, we’ll both relax and not worry. We’ll find a way to make this work.”
“Good. Now can we celebrate?” I asked. She looked up and grinned at me, nodding.
“Now we can celebrate. But no drinks.”
“What?! Why no drinks? How can we celebrate without drinks?”
“No alcohol anymore, Jake. Kiss your drinking days bye-bye…” She sighed, as if she were kissing them away also.
“But I know you can’t have drinks when you’re pregnant, but why can’t I?” I whined.
Again, wrong thing to say.
“OH! So you feel perfectly fine to drink and have fun while I can’t? You’re so selfish!” She threw her hands up.
“No, no, no. That’s not what I meant! I’m sorry,” I stuttered. “No drinks, no alcohol, promise.”
“Fine,” she sighed. “Let’s get home, we have guests for dinner, and I have to pick up some things from the grocery store.”
“Guests?” I asked. “Embry ain’t a guest.”
“Oh, Embry’s not the only one coming.” She got that evil smile back on her face.
“Who--” I was interrupted.
“How’re we doing in here?” The doctor asked, coming inside again. “Everything ok?”
“Yeah doctor, we’re fine, sorry about the freak-out earlier,” Ally apologized sweetly.
“Oh no dear, it’s fine. It’s a very life-changing thing to find out you’re having not only one, but two kids. But I think you’ll be great parents.”
“I think you’re right, doctor,” I smiled down at Ally. “Actually, I know you’re right.”
