"I'll be back soon," she promised me. She ran upstairs to go change into better clothes for shopping. I don't know what was wrong with the clothes she had on now. She looked incredible no matter what she was wearing anyways. I waited in the living room for Nessie to come back. The blond bitch was glaring at me through black eyes. I didn't know what her problem was. I kept turning my head towards the stairs, waiting for Ness to come down.
Finally, the last time I turned my head towards the staircase, I saw her peak around the corner and step into view where I could really see her. My eyes popped out of my head, and my jaw dropped on it's own accord. I swallowed heavily; she looked drop dead gorgeous! She was wearing a satiny blue silk dress that had thin straps that looked like they could barely hold the dress up. She had on some blue shoes to match. I didn't know if I could stay put on the couch. There was no denying it...I wanted her.
"Close your mouth, dog. She's not a piece of meat!" The blonde leech was yelling at me. No one in this room needed Edward's mind reading power to know what I was thinking.
"Rosalie, do not yell at my Jacob. It's not his fault I decided to dress like this," she yelled back at Rosalie. She was defending me! A warm feeling was rising up inside of me. God I loved Renesmee.
"So, are we going shopping, or what?" Nessie asked the blonde bloodsucker.
"Ness, don't worry, you can go. My feelings won't be hurt. Maybe I'll go and hang out will Quil and Embry..." I told her. I felt a wistful look come on my face. I knew that I hadn't seen my best friends, but Ness was my life; they understood that. Then, a thought came into my head. How could I have been so stupid? "Yea, Ness, go ahead, I just remembered something that I should get around to, and I can do that!" I said exuberantly. I was going to get her engagement ring! I couldn't wait to see her face!
"If you're sure," she said to me as she blew me a kiss and was dragged out by Rosalie. I waited until I could hear them pull out of the driveway. Even then, I waited until I couldn't hear the motor of her mustang anymore.
I pulled out the cell phone that I had recently acquired and started to dial Quil's number. Halfway through, I stopped...Quil wouldn't know anything about rings. Not yet anyhow. I looked through my contact list. When I got to Emily's cell number, I hit okay and the talk button; she would know.
"Hello?" I heard Emily's voice on the other end.
"Emily?" I asked.
"Hello, Jacob!" she greeted me, "What can I do for you?" she sounded curious why I was calling her, not Sam.
"Emily, I was wondering if I could ask a favor of you,"
"Well, I asked Renesmee to marry me today, and she said yes," I told her happily.
"Oh Jacob! That's wonderful! Congratulations. Boys! You'll never guess what Jacob just told me! He and Renesmee are going to get married!" Emily sounded ecstatic. I wondered who was all there that she was telling. "So what favor do you need dear?" she asked me politely.
"I need you to help me pick out an engagement ring for her. I have the money, I just don't know what I should be looking for. Do you think you could help me?" I asked sounding pitiful, and maybe just a little bit desperate.
"Jacob, I'm honored that you would ask me to help you with such a task! We'll go to the mall whenever you're ready! When do you want to go?" she asked me excitedly.
"I was thinking now. I'm at the Cullen's right now, I could phase, and run down to La Push, and pick you up, if you'd like. We can always take Sam's car." I said laughingly. Sam would kill me.
"What a perfect idea!" That stopped me short. I was in for it the next time I saw Sam. I still have my own pack, but that doesn't mean that he still can't yell at me for using his car without his permission.
"Okay, Emily, I'll be there in like a minute," I said laughing again. No one else was home, so I ran out of the house. I ran towards Bella and Edward's cottage, that wasn't too far away from the main house. The door was unlocked as always. Let's face it, a vampires aren't really afraid of someone that a lock can deter from breaking into a house.
Running into the house, I grabbed a pen and paper to write Ness a note. I went into her room. It smelled so much like her, so incredibly delicious. I felt her presence everywhere in the room. Once again, I was reminded of how much I loved her, and how I wanted to make her the happiest woman in the world.Ness,
I had some errands to run. I'll be back as soon as I possibly can. I love you so much Renesmee Carlie Cullen. I promise, I will soon make that Renesmee Carlie Black. I love you
I wrote the note on two separate pieces of paper. Leaving one on her desk, I ran back to the Cullen house and left one there taped to the front door.
All I had on as usual was a pair of cutoff shorts. I ran into a patch of bushes and slipped them off, tying them to the rope that was wound loosely around my ankle. I phased in a second of heat into the ridiculously huge russet colored wolf. In less than a second, I was running as fast as I could towards La Push, and Emily. I was running through the woods, dodging trees easily. I was just starting to really let go and enjoy the exercise, when it was over. I was in Sam and Emily's back yard. Before going completely out of the cover of the forest, I phased back to my human form and slipped my shorts back on.
Jogging into the house I yelled out to Emily, "Emily! I'm here!" As I walked further through the house, I smelled the familiar sweet nasty smell of vampire. The scent smelt vaguely familiar, but I couldn't quite place it. I looked for Sam's phone, and found it lying on the kitchen counter. I quickly dialed Edwards cell phone number. One ring....two...three.
"Go." was his command.
"Who the hell was at Sam and Emily's house?" I demanded of him.
"Jacob what are you talking about? None of us except Ness go on your land," Edward said in a droning voice. He knew the new treaty as well as I did.
"I'm telling you that you can come to Sam's house, and I'm telling you now!" I snarled at the phone, "Someone took Emily, and it was a vampire. The scent is familiar to me, but I can't tell whose it is. It's none of yours, but I want to know whose it is. I'm sure Sam will also!" I was furious. I didn't know who took Emily, and I didn't know how to explain this to Sam.
"We're on our way, Bella, Alice, and myself." he said, I could hear the strain in his voice.
"Hurry!" there was a hint of urgency in my voice.
* * * * *
Two agonizingly slow minutes later, Bella, Alice, and Edward arrived.
"What took you so long?" I was in Edwards face yelling at him. My hands were shaking.
"Jacob, calm down, I don't need you phasing now. Let us do our job please," Edward looked calm, but I could tell he was clenching his jaw. I'd seen him do that many times in the time that I'd known him. He sniffed the air, as did Bella and Alice.
"Edward," Bella said sadly.
"I know, love," he told her quietly. Beside him, Alice had gone rigid, and the whites of her eyes were showing. I was slightly repulsed. A second later, she came to.
"The Volturi. All I can tell you is that Emily is in Volterra. I saw them take her, and that's all. It goes blank after that."
A growl was coming out of my chest, but it was overtaken by the one that was ripping out of Bella's. So it was the army of vampires that we would have demolished last time.
