Rating 4.5/5 Word Count 2238 Review this Chapter
Now this is what I call completely unexpected. Shock!
I stayed there, using the door for support. My eyes were wide, and my mouth was shaped in a perfect ‘O’.
This couldn’t be. He can’t be here. It has been 5 years…..
“What? Are you going to stare at me like I am a complete abomination or are you going to invite me in?”He said.
I continued staring up at him in complete shock until I noticed that I shouldn’t be reacting to his visit this way. I had a feeling he would show up soon. Didn’t I? So, who cared about the reason? He was here, that’s what’s important. Wasn’t it? My head was spinning from the shock and elation I felt at seeing him.
This time he looked extremely frustrated. “Hello!! You look like you’ve just seen a ghost and if you don’t close your mouth the flies are going to enter through it….. And I am totally talking to myself because; you’re obviously not present on Earth.”
I blinked twice and breathed deeply before I could choke out my answer.
“Duh…” he said with an already frustrated expression.
“Oh my goodness, Jake!!!!! What are you doing here? Did you get here running? How did you know I came here? Did my parents tell you? Is this a joke or…” he cut me off by putting his index finger in my lips. He dropped the only suitcase he was caring and picked me up in one of his bone crushing hugs, swinging me around as he used to when I was a little girl.
“Leave the questions for later Nessie.” He whispered through my hair in the most mellifluous voice. He hugged me tighter and kissed me in the forehead.
“Oh, I missed youso much! No, wait…better said…I couldn’t stand one more second without seeing your face. It was like not seeing the sun come out in the morning or the stars not shinning bright on a silent dark night.” He said poetically.
I grimaced guiltily, as I realized I felt, in a less dramatic way, exactly as he had expressed.
He put me down and stared at me like I was the air he hadn’t breathed in the 5 years I was gone. I could see so many different feelings flickering abnormally fast in his eyes, but the most perceptible of these feelings was longing for something… I couldn’t figure it out.
“I missed you more than you can imagine, Nessie,” he was still gazing deeply into my wide, surprised eyes.
“I missed you too Jake. Don’t be so melodramatic” I said letting out a nervous giggle that I just couldn’t hold in.
His darker bottom lip popped out, making his very familiar and convincing puppy face. “Oh, come on Jake don’t be sad, you know I love you, and I did miss you insanely.” I stood on my tiptoes as high as I could go and plastered a sweet, delicate kiss in his cheek, which was suddenly darker than the rest of his face.
“I know” He murmured quietly bending down to hug me this time softer, but with the same intensity.
I slowly drifted away from him and smiled. “Come on let’s get inside, I’m almost sure that it is just getting colder with the ticking clock.” I winked at him and his face brightened up like the happy Jacob I knew.
“Nessie,” Jacob said looking around the house while he followed behind me toward the kitchen.
“Yeah?” I answer absentmindedly.
“How have you been able to handle living so isolated in this town? Don’t get me wrong it’s a beautiful place, but you’re just so far from all your loved ones and I don’t think you have a lot of communication to keep you distracted here.”
“It hasn’t been that bad. Yeah… I do feel lonely sometimes, but my mom and dad are always doing the best they can to make this separation easier for me. Hey, do you want anything to drink or eat? We have some human appetizers to keep appearance in here.” I said as I rummaged through the fridge looking for some sweet tea, which was about the only human beverage that I was obsessed with.
“Um…whatever you have. Why do you even have to keep appearance in here if you have no contact with humans?”
“People are really nice in this town, and sometimes they stop by to talk to my parents…and talking about human food I only have water, sorry.” I mumble embarrassed. “We haven’t bought food in a long time.” I answered finally finding the cup of sweet tea I was looking for.
“Water is fine. What are you drinking; donated blood in a cup?” He smirked.
“No genius. It’s sweet tea. When I am thirsty and can’t go hunting, this makes me feel better, and don’t you dare laugh about it.” He put his hand on his mouth and started turning red, if it was possible to even notice on his soft brown skin. He was not able to hold it for long and he burst a huge laugh that almost made the house vibrate.
I glared at him.
“What! You’re serious?!” he was burly able to get it out of his mouth with his hysterical laughter.
“YES! I am serious! If I must remind you, I am not completely vampire. Therefore I can digest human food if I WANT to.” I screamed hurt by his laughing.
“Geesh, over reactive, aren’t we?”
“Jacob, it is hard enough to have to live through all this weirdness and you’re definitely not making it easier.”
“Ok, fine. Sorry! I promise I will not make fun of your eating habits.” He said holding another burst of laughter.
I continued glaring at him. “Are you going to keep acting like a moron, or do you want for us to go sit down and talk like two civilized persons?” I snapped at him as I roughly handed him his glass of water.
“Yeah, sorry about that; really. We can go sit down if you want.” He said looking down at his feet. I guess he was still trying to control his last sudden attack of laughter, because his full lips were slightly twitching.
I walked swiftly past him, plopped down on the large living room sofa and crossed my arms; in a way of showing him that I was still mad at his insult. Like it was any easier having to deal with the fact that I was very far from being normal; now let’s add the fact that the only person who should understand me was here laughing at my weirdness.
Suddenly, I felt Jacob’s warm hand pull up my face. He looked deeply into my eyes, and very sincerely said, “I am really sorry Nessie; I didn’t mean to hurt you. I couldn’t control myself. Can you please forgive me?”
“I will consider your request.” I said looking away from his dark penetrating eyes, but my mouth was already giving me away by my half smile.
“Please.” He murmured softly; still holding my face in his large hands.
I smiled up at him and said, “Fine, I forgive you.”
He grinned so wide that I had to laugh at how happy he looked by my simple approval.
Suddenly my smile turned to a mocking one. Now it was payback time. I got hold of his hand and he looked down at me with confusion and a little bit of suspicion. I reached up to his ear. “Let’s see if you can keep up with me.” I whispered softly. With that, I disappeared in a sudden rush pulling him along with me. Of course, he couldn’t keep up in his human form. So without time to think, he tripped and fell down to his stomach making a crashing sound as he bumped with the center table in the living room. By the time I noticed his figure lying on the floor, from the top of the stairs, he had already gotten up and was racing up to me in record time. I ran even faster to my room with him right at my heels.
“Ohhh…You are really going to pay for this Renesmee Carlie Cullen.” He said loud enough for me to hear.
“You’ll get over it” I whispered, with no hesitation from my running, absolutely sure that he had heard me.
By the time that he got to my room I was lying on my stomach in the bed, with my feet dancing in the air and my hands holding my face, as I fluttered my eyes.
He glared at me from the enter way of my room, but then smiled. He looked around the room and stared wide eyed through my window. He walked slowly toward it still amazed by the panoramic view. “Wow” he whispered.
Through the window you could see a vast forest stretching as far as your eyes could go. At the farthest point in the horizon, where the sun was finally setting, you could see the beautiful hulking range of mountains. The peaks of the majestic mountains were beautifully covered in snow. Every single tree in the forest was perfectly sprinkled by the light snow that was now falling.
Jacob put his hand in the window; gazing straight at the beautiful sunset that was sending sparks of different shades of orange immediately followed by unimaginable shades of red, leading to the dark blue color that would soon overpower the whole sky.
I looked through the window as well, admiring and reflecting on the beauty before us. Knowing that if I spoke, the moment would be shattered; I slowly put my hand in Jacob’s cheek.Do you want to go up to the mountains and wait for the bands of the Aurora Borealis? I said through my special way of communicating, sending him images of nights in where I had seen it. It’s beautiful. I go up there almost every night to think.
He turned around to see me and nodded, smiling with shiny black eyes. “Let’s go.” He gestured with his hand to lead the way and I took hold of his hand a second time and went down the stairs, with him right behind me. As we descended the stairs at a human pace the phone suddenly rang with a desperate shrill.
I dropped Jacobs hand and ran down the rest of the stairs to the phone in the living room table. I reached the phone right before it rang for the second time. “Cullen residence,” I said, while I gestured Jacob to go on outside without me.
“Yes…is this Bella?” the voice on the other end of the receiver answered with a slightly nervous voice.
“No, she is not in the house right now. Excuse me, but who is this?” I turned to Jacob, who hadn’t moved from where I left him in the stairs. He had his dark shaggy eyebrows together in confusion.
“I’m sorry this is Renee; Bella’s mom. I called Charlie before calling here and he gave me this number, but I got the impression that he wasn’t sure if he was allowed to give it to me,” the women started rushing through her words, “so I got scared, and thought that maybe, since I haven’t talked to her in a long time, she was in trouble or something, and then I call and she is not there and….” This time the woman sounded like she was having a hysterics attack.
I moved the speaker away from my mouth and motioned Jacob to come. He was in front of me in no time, and put his hand out demanding me to pass the phone to him.
“Jacob,” I whispered in a nervous voice, “it’s my grandmother, Renee…”
Jake’s eyes went wide and he carefully took the phone from my frozen hand. “Renee? This is Jacob. What’s wrong?” his expression was terrified, but composed.
I heard the lady answer with the same hysterical tone.
“Ummm….”Jacob answered nervously.
On the other end Renee was starting to rush through her words again, and my sharp ears caught her saying, “Where’s Bella, Jacob? Please answer me! I need to talk to her. What in the world are you doing answering her phone? Where am I calling to? My phone marked that the number was from Alaska. What is my daughter doing there? Wasn’t she in New Hampshire? She never….” Renee continued talking, but Jake stopped her.
“Calm down Renee. Everybody is fine.” Jacob motioned desperately to me for help. “Wait a minute Renee, please. I promise everything is ok.” He put his hand over the speaker. “What do I tell her Nessie? Does she even know about you?”
I came out of my shocked expression and tried to remember if my mom had told Renee about me. She hadn’t. “No Jake, I remember my mom saying that she would tell her when I finished growing, which is in about 3 years. That way she can tell her that they adopted me at 18.”
“Umm…so what do I tell her? He asked me.
I made a frustrated face and said, “I don’t know, Jake. Make up something. You’re a very smart wolf.” I patted his shoulder and speeded out the door, leaving Jacob to deal with my grandmother by himself.
