Our Final Day
*sequel to 5 Days* After all Bella and Becky had been through the first four days, how could there be anything worst to happen on the fifth?
Sadly I do not own any of the Twilight characters, they all belong to Stephenie Meyer. Also, the five cursed days thing is all Dean Koontz Oh, I said I was going to call this story Breaking Boundries but I changed my mind.

“You’re not seriously going to make me do this by myself are you?” I asked Jacob, faking the franticness in my voice. “You’re going to just abandon me to suffer through the public school system while you get to go run around and play with a bunch of dogs. This just doesn’t sound fair,”
Jacob chuckled as he moved through the adjoining bathroom back into our room. We had a beautiful, over sized room in the Cullen’s household in the town Hightens in Rhode Island. It is a classic European style mansion, five stories with a separate two story guest house two hundred yards from the main house. It was a creamy white color with chocolate brown accents. We had a brick driveway and a grey stone fence going around the property. Esme had done a wonderful job restoring it. It was way too much but the Cullens love to live in luxury. “Have you seen my keys?” he asked.
Somehow we ended up with the biggest room in the whole house. Our room was actually two stories. It was located on the second floor and went up to the third. The roof that separated the two stories had been taken out so we had an extremely high ceiling. The north wall was painted a dark beige color while the other three were a lighter beige. We had a white carpet with a grey rug placed in the center. There was a mahogany frame for our bed and we had matching dressers and side table. We had gold comforter and sheets with bronze colored pillows. There were three feet wide windows in our room that ran from the floor, all the way to the top of our two story ceiling to make the room even more light and open.
You could still reach our room from the third story floor. On the east and south side, there was still part of the ceiling from the second floor that was cut out to be used as a pathway along the wall so you could walk in and view our room. Besides that, there wasn’t really much use for the pathway except it did look cool.
“Why don’t you just take my car? Then at least you’ll have something to remind me of how heartlessly you’re leaving me behind!” I cried in a fake voice, like a bad actress trying out for the main character’s role in a school play all the while fighting to keep from smiling.
“Becky, stop being melodramatic,”
That time I couldn’t help it. My face broke into a smile and I said to him, “Why? It’s fun. You should try it sometime.”
“Not now. Maybe later.” He ran his hand through his hair. I noticed this is something he did when he thought things weren’t going as smoothly as he would like.
“Why are you driving anyways? Couldn’t you just run?” I asked Jacob.
“Driving would be easier and unlike you, humans don’t take too kindly towards seeing a giant wolf running through their city.” Oh, yah. I didn’t think about that.
“Are you sure you don’t want to bring me with you to La Push?” I asked giving him my best puppy eyes and cutest pout.
“Positive,” he said, immune to me. You just can’t pull off the puppy dog face with an actually wolf. “Don’t you remember what happened last time?”
I flinched perfectly recalling what had happened last time I came with him to meet up with the pack. Neither Leah nor Paul had not taken to me kindly though the rest of them took me in with as much good grace as they could manage. Things kind of got worst when Brady asked me what the tattoos on my arm were and I had to be stupid enough to tell him the truth.
Being with Jacob had always promised to bring trouble. Luckily, I had been able to disguise his smell from the rest of the Cullens and made it so he couldn’t smell them. Jasper and Bella were also keeping tabs on everyone’s emotions so a fight wouldn’t break out. I am forever grateful that the Cullens had let Jake move in with them.
Besides the smell and the instinct to kill each other, another problem with Jake was the aging thing. There was no way we could have him phasing with all of us vampires around and if he didn’t phase in a long enough time period he would start aging again. I had considered having Jacob turned into a vampire although I quickly pushed that thought away. I don’t think he would ever want to that, no matter how much he loved me. So the solution we came up with was since Jacob was still second in command in the La Push pack see as Emily refused to allow Sam to step down so he was still the pack leader, once every week he would go and visit them and patrol with them for a day before coming back. This way he refrained from aging and he also got to be with his old friends.
“Do you know where my keys are?” he asked me again, checking the pockets of one of his jackets.
I sighed. “In the long dresser, second drawer down on the right.”
Jake pushed his eyebrows together but followed my directions and discovered the key to his car. “What are they doing in here?”
“I put them in there in pathetic attempt to keep you here longer.” I admitted. We rarely keep anything from each other. It was an unspoken concept.
Jacob’s eye immediately melted and he walked over to our bed where I was sitting cross legged, climbed on, and embraced me. “You know I don’t want to leave as much as you want me to but I have to.” He kissed my forehead.
I looked up at him; even though we were sitting he was still much taller than me. “I promise to behave if you take me. I won’t make any wise crack or be a smart ass. I’ll even take a nice, new, bright rubber ball for them to play with.” I smirked at the image of watching a group of giant, mutant werewolves chasing after a bouncy ball.
“And you wonder why they don’t think you’re an angel,” Jacob muttered under his breath.
“Excuse me,” I foreigned shock. “What was that you said?”
“Nothing,” Jacob said in an innocent voice.
“You really want to go? Cause I can think of a few things we could do that would be a whole lot more fun,” I told him wrapping my legs around his waist leaving a trail of kisses starting under his ear traveling across his jaw.
Jacob groaned. “You don’t play fair.” He complained.
I snickered. “Never said I did.”
Jacob untangled himself from me and I pouted again. “You know that’s technically illegal seeing as you’re only seventeen and I’m forty-two.” He told me. He was right, I was turned when I was seventeen but he looked like a twenty-five year old.
“But you know I wouldn’t be doing it if it wasn’t a little bit illegal. And you’re the best looking forty-two year old I’ve ever seen”
Jacob laughed. “Bye Beck,” he kissed me one last time and left the room. I fell back down backward onto the bed. Today was going to be a long day.
“I think I might actually kill myself,” I announced to Bella, Edward, and Alice. We had just finished our fourth period, English and were walking to the lunch room where Emmett, Rosalie, and Jasper were waiting. English had to be the more boring subject this whole school had to offer. Bella, for some unfathomable reason, actually liked it. To me, she actually seemed to like being here. Or maybe it was she was with Edward. Maybe if Jake was here with me this whole ordeal would be slightly more tolerable but he wasn’t. Or maybe if I had gotten into chemistry class I would have something to look forward towards. At least in that class you had the chance of blowing something up.
I had no clue why we were even going to school. Hightens High School. I hated school as a human so what would make me like it anymore as a vampire. But there really wasn’t much else to do. Also, Bella and I had used the school excuse as to why we wouldn’t stay any longer in Voltaire.
We had to cut through the parking lot to get from the English building where Alice, Edward, Bella, and my class had been held. Some all boring stuff that I’d already learned before. This was about the five hundredth time the Cullens were going through high school. I wonder how they stand it. It was just my first day and I could barely take it.
Edward and Bella were talking to each other in a low voice. They were married now. We all could tell that was going to happen. The wedding was beautiful and extremely lavish- in other words, very Cullen styled. Jake and I weren’t married. I don’t know why. We just didn’t get around to it and my other marriage didn’t have the happiest ending. Alice was prattling on to me about some shopping trip she wanted to take me, Bella, and Rosalie on in New York City. I wasn’t paying strict attention. I was staring down at my feet as I walked through the light mist. I noticed the writing on the asphalt.
Where the speed bumps were was written in bright yellow paint CAUTION: BUMPS. Except someone had taken black paint and had painted over part of the B so it now said CAUTION: hUMPS.
“Charming,” I observed to the others. Secretly, I was thinking ‘amateur’. I could have come up with something much better than that. But Carlisle had taken me aside and we had a talk about how my behavior had been when I was a human teenager. He had told me how essential it was that we keep a low profile. He told me I had to try my hardest and bare through it. He said that it ever became too hard for me, that I could take a day off from school though I knew from his thoughts that he was more thinking about my resistance against human blood.
I was doing fine so far. I had hunted just two days ago so I was good. I was slightly using Bella was a crutch but I knew I would eventually have to stop relying on her. It was low and pathetic but I was taking slight reassurance in the fact that Jasper struggled as much, even more, than I did.
We reached the cafeteria and joined the others. We bought the food we would never eat to keep up with our charade. Food reminded me of Jacob. He was the only one of us who could eat or sleep and do all of those human things. If I kept this, I was going to develop serious separation anxiety issues.
The five minute bell sounded. Only two more classes of utter boredom to endure. We rose soundlessly and threw away our untouched trays. We split up; Emmett, Jasper, Edward, and I heading off to physics while Alice, Rosalie, and Bella got to go to chemistry. Lucky.
“Ready for more hell?” Emmett muttered under his breath. Scary, I was just about to ask that. We rounded the corner of a building and I couldn’t believe what I saw.
