Chapter Eleven-I’m A Believer

I thought love was
Only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else
But not for me
Love was out to get to me
That's the way it seems
Disappointment haunted
All my dreams

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

I thought love was
More or less a given thing
The more I gave the less
I got, oh yeah
What's the use in trying
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine
I got rain

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

What's the use in trying
All you get is pain
When I wanted sunshine
I got rain

And then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm in love
I'm a believer
I couldn't leave her
If I tried

Then I saw her face
Now I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
Now I'm a believer
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm a believer
Then I saw her face
I'm a believer
Not a trace
Of doubt in my mind
I'm a believer Jacob’s POV

I noticed on the days leading up to the wedding that Jenny slowly got more and more nervous. We were sitting on her bed one day with different pictures spread out in front of us. She was sitting between my legs Indian style and I was running my fingers through her hair. It seemed to calm her somewhat, but after about 5 minutes of flipping through pictures she flopped back against my chest and sighed exasperatedly.

I kissed the back of her neck gently. “What is it sweetheart?” I asked.

“Decisions. Apparently I have to pick everything and there are hundreds of choices for everything.” She tipped her head back and I slowly felt her muscles relaxing.

I smiled down at her as her eyes closed and her facial muscles relax. “That’s it, sleep my beauty.” I whispered to her as I gently slid out from under her and set her head on her pillow. She had been under a lot of stress lately with planning almost the entire wedding and she hadn’t been getting much sleep lately. I gathered up the pictures and magazines and set them on her desk. Then I lay down next to her and curled an arm around her. “I love you.” I said into her hair.

“I love you too.” She murmured and then sighed quietly as she fell into an actual sleep. I smiled at her tenderly again and then set my head on the other side of her pillow and fell asleep curled up with her.

Jennifer’s POV

The weeks passed quickly and before I knew it, it was the day before my wedding. My mom and I were in Port Angeles picking up the dresses and flowers, everything else was already back at the house and just waiting to be set up. I knew what I would be doing for the rest of the day.

My mom told me that it was bad luck for the bride to see the groom both the day of and the day before the wedding and while I resented the tradition it was probably better that Jake didn’t see me freaking out. I got my dress from the bridal shop and we then went to pick up the bride’s maid dresses too. The flowers almost didn’t fit in the car, almost. By the end of the day my feet were in some serious pain and I had a major headache.

“Did every store have to have some last minute problem?” I asked as I flopped into the passenger seat of the car.

My mom laughed as she slid into the drivers seat and turned on the car. “Of course. That’s the way wedding planning goes. You plan everything and double check it all and then when you go to pick it up and there’s something wrong with it.” I sighed dramatically and we both started cracking up. We spent the rest of the ride discussing the minor details that had yet to be done. My dad had told me he would have at least some of the stuff set up by the time I got home and that we would just have to put on the finishing touches.

When we got to the house I started carrying stuff in, but my mom stopped me. “Honey you’re getting married tomorrow. This is no time to be working yourself into a tizzy. Just go in and settle down in your room or something. Try to get a good nights sleep tonight. And remember no Jake!” She said adding a chuckle at the end.

I pouted slightly, but darted into the house anyways. It was probably better this way, I could brood in peace. I spent 30 minutes lying on my bed staring at my ceiling and for some reason after those thirty minutes my mom’s words really sunk into my head. You’re getting married tomorrow. I was getting married tomorrow. TOMORROW!! And that was when I started to freak out just a little bit.

Jacob’s POV

Tomorrow was the wedding and I could feel somewhere deep in my heart that Jenny was nervous or something was wrong. Claire had told me that it was bad luck for the bride to see the groom the day before and the day of the wedding, but I just had to talk to her and at least hear her voice.

She picked up on the third ring and I could literally hear the nerves in her voice. “Hello?” She said, but it came out more like a question.

“Hey sweetheart.” I replied reveling in the sound of her voice. It was becoming physically terrible for me to be away from her.

“Hi Jake.” She said, relief obvious in her voice. I could hear someone in the background and then Jenny was back. “Sorry I gotta go. My mom just walked in and I have last minute preparations.”

I sighed. “I understand, I’ll see you tomorrow.”

“’Bye.” She said sadly.

“It’s only one night. We can handle that can’t we?” I said trying to lift the sadness from her voice. It didn’t belong there and I didn’t want to be the one to cause it.

"Sure we can." She said.

“Bye Sweetheart.” I said and then hung up. We were getting married tomorrow. I sighed happily and lay down on my bed to attempt to get some sleep.
