I watched her still body with anguish. Had I been too late to save my beloved angel? Was she lost to me forever? Tearless sobs broke through my control.
“Edward, her heart is still beating. The venom is circulating through her bloodstream. You shouldn’t be acting like this. She’ll be fine. Go hold your daughter. You’ve been so focused that you didn’t catch on to a recent event. You’ll want to know this. Go while I change Bella into something that isn’t blood soaked!”
“What happened, Alice?” I asked anxiously. I couldn’t handle much more of this.
“Go and see for yourself!” she said tauntingly. I ran out of the room and down the stairs. Jacob and Rosalie were arguing again.
“What are you two bickering about this time?” I ignored their thoughts, waiting for someone to answer me out loud.
“The dumb dog keeps trying to take Renesmee from me.”
“I wouldn’t be trying to take her if you would just hand her to me.”
“How do I know you’re not lying to me?”
I was getting worried now. I focused on Jacob’s thoughts.
I don’t see why I would lie about imprinting. If I were trying to hurt Nessie, I’d get Blondie while I was at it.
“YOU DID WHAT?????!!!!!” I yelled. My daughter was in my arms within seconds. Rose had made no move at all to stop me; smart choice.
Oh shit!!! “It’s a completely involuntary thing. Please don’t kill me. I didn’t mean to. You know I can’t control that. I’m one of Bella’s best friends; she wouldn’t want you to kill me!” I hope the Bella Card works. I actually have a reason to live now so dying would really suck. If he attacks, I can’t even defend myself. Bella would kill me if I accidentally hurt him. Soon she’ll be able to pull off the feat too. Shit, I’m screwed. I’m going to die. I’m going to die, and then I’m going to end up in Hell. I wonder if this breaks the treaty. A pissed of vampire daddy murdering the werewolf that imprinted on his baby girl. I don’t think the treaty covered that one. I won’t blame him. I just hope he doesn’t bite me; death by vampire venom doesn’t sound like fun. If I have to die, I’d rather it be as quick and painless as possible.
I had to laugh at the stream of thoughts running through his mind. They both stared at me questioningly. Emmett walked into the room.
“What’s going on in here?”
“Jacob imprinted on Renesmee, and now he thinks I’m going to kill him. The thoughts that went with that conclusion were funny. I won’t kill you, Jake. I’ll leave that decision and privilege up to Bella. If she wants to kill you, she will. I might ask to help, just for the fun of it. She’ll surely be able to manage it alone, but I want to have a part in that. Be glad it’s Bella’s decision, dog. I would bite you and let the venom do its job. She’s likely to be more merciful.” I was about to break one of his bones when a new set of thoughts interrupted me. I could catch a strong disapproval coming from the little angel in my arms. I put my hand on her cheek and she mimicked my action. I could see Jacob’s face, and then she turned around, outstretching her arms toward him. I rolled my eyes.
“Do you enjoy being so difficult, my child? You’re most definitely your mother’s daughter. She likes to aggravate me too. If you didn’t have her eyes, you would never get your way in this matter.” I rolled my eyes again. She rolled hers too, and I smiled. “You are so much like your mother that it kills me.” I walked over to Jacob. He was in the middle of guessing my actions when I held Renesmee out to him.
“Are you serious?”
“She wants you. If it weren’t for those eyes, I’d never allow it.”
“Dangerous weapons, I assume.” He laughed and took Renesmee into his arms. She smiled, and put her hand to his cheek. His eyes widened.
“Holy crap; what was that? What just happened? I saw myself arguing with Blondie, but that was like ten minutes ago.”
My mind whirled. What was going on?
“Hand her to me for a second, Jake,” said Emmett. He held his hands out and took Renesmee. She put her hand on his cheek, and his eyes widened the same way Jacob’s had. “Whoa, that was creepy cool. Was Aunt Rose being mean to Jacob? You might want to watch out for this one. She’s getting a little territorial. See for yourself, honey.”
Emmett gave Renesmee to Rosalie. My daughter repeated what she had shown Emmett and Jake. Rosalie rolled her eyes, sighed in exasperation, gave Renesmee back to Jacob, and went to work on her car. This fight was over for now, but I had a feeling that it was only just beginning.
