Chapter 10: What Now?

BPOV

Jake's words sank in and I began to cry. In the few months I had gotten to know Jake I had really gotten close to him. It hurt me to know that his hatred for Emmett and the Cullens was greater than the affection he had for me.

I walked back to Billy’s, trying to hold back the next round of tears, but halfway there I broke down. I cried for several minutes, hoping to release the anger that I was feeling but it never came. Finally, I gave up and entered Billy’s house. The party was still going but all I wanted to do was leave.

I searched for Charlie and found him outside with Billy and Harry. I approached him and asked him if we could leave.

“Dad, can we go now? I’m not feeling well,” I asked, not meeting his eyes.

“What’s wrong?” Charlie asked a little too loudly for my taste, but the worry was apparent by his tone.

I felt my cheeks go red, and Billy and Harry’s gazes on me. “Nothing really, I just need to go home,” I responded.

He looked me over and said, “Sure kid, let’s go.”

“Thanks,” I mumbled.

We said our goodbyes, and I could still feel everyone’s gazes on me as we left.

At first, Charlie didn’t say anything, but I could tell he was worried. I didn’t want to offer up any information, in fear of upsetting him. I didn’t want his friendship with Billy to be strained. But once we were at home, Charlie decided to do a little parenting and asked me what was wrong, again.

“Bella, why did you come back alone? Did Jacob do something to hurt you?” Charlie asked.

I really didn’t want talk to him about this, but I knew if I didn’t clarify, things would get worse. “We got into a fight... I don’t want to talk about it.”

“Why did you guys fight?” Charlie asked, uneasy with the whole situation.

“He doesn’t like Emmett,” I mumbled.

He chuckled and said, “Is that all?”

I nodded and he laughed much louder this time. I stormed off and headed for my room. I paced back and forth in my room hoping to get a call from Emmett at any time but it never happened. I was beginning to worry that things with Rosalie hadn’t gone so well and things got heated.

I grew impatient and went downstairs to heat some leftovers and Charlie seemed to still be in his cheery mood.

“Your boyfriend never came, huh? Oh well,” he said with a huge grin.

“The night is still young,” I responded, while watching the minute change on the stove’s clock to 7:16.

He just grunted and continued to watch the television.

I took out yesterday’s chicken and asked Charlie if he wanted any, I wasn’t sure how much he had actually eaten at the barbeque.

“Did you want some chicken dad?”

“No thanks, Bells. I had plenty at Billy’s.”

I put a piece in the microwave and watched it rotate, counting down the seconds. When it was finally ready I let it cool off and grabbed some juice from the fridge. I sat down and began eating, all the while looking out the window hoping to see Emmett. It was pathetic really, waiting around for him, but I couldn’t help it I missed him. I needed his comforting words, his cold touch, and hard body holding me as we kissed.

I finished eating and joined Charlie, hoping the TV would distract me. After an hour I gave up went back upstairs and took a shower. I finished getting dressed and began to reread The Great Gatsby for class.

I hadn’t even finished a sentence when I heard a soft tap on my window. I jumped out of bed and opened it immediately. Emmett leaped into my room and swooped me into his arms in one quick motion.

“Hi,” he said, grinning at me.

“Hey,” I replied, wrapping my arms around him.

We stared at one another and laughed. He put me down and kissed me softly, his cool breathe on my face causing me to shiver slightly.

“How did it go?” I asked, hoping Rosalie’s reaction wasn’t that bad.

“Not well, but I’m hoping she will learn to accept the situation, but that’s not important,” he said giving me a gentle kiss.

“Yeah, this is more important,” I said, intensifying the kiss. My toes curled when I felt his cold tongue enter my mouth. He pulled me closer and we kissed longer than was necessary. I felt his cold fingers tangle in my hair and I wrapped my legs around his waist. His hand traveled from my hair to my waist, holding me steady.

We traveled to my bed, our gazes never breaking apart. He gently laid me down and hovered over me, the hesitation apparent. He brushed it off and we began to kiss again, this time with more urgency.

My hands traveled to his chest, as I began to lift his shirt but he stopped me.

“What’s wrong?”

“We shouldn’t do this, at least not right now,” he said, standing up.

“Why Not?” I asked, hurt by his words.

“Well for one, Charlie is downstairs, half awake, so if he had heard the noises coming out of this room he would definitely come upstairs to see what all the ruckus was about.”

My vampire boyfriend was afraid of my human father? I giggled at the thought and he just stared at me with a puzzled look.

“You’re afraid of Charlie? Don’t you have all these heightened senses? Wouldn’t you just be able to hear him as he got up?” I asked smugly.

He laughed his booming laugh and said, “I am not afraid of him, but, Bella, do you really think that I would be able to focus on Charlie if I had you naked in front of me?” he said, sitting next to me.

I blushed at his words and smiled. I responded with a soft “oh.”

“Furthermore, I doubt you would want your first time to be in your room, with your father downstairs. I’m sure you pictured something more romantic for our first time. This isn’t exactly how I pictured it. When it happens, I want it to be special. So if we’re going to do this, we should probably get some practice in first,” he said, wiggling his eyebrows.

I blushed again and my smile grew wider. Emmett had really given our first time a lot of thought. And here I was attacking the poor guy without thinking about the consequences.

He wrapped his arms around me and continued, “I’ve never been with a human before, and I don’t know how much control I would really have. Don’t get me wrong, my control has improved from my newborn days but I don’t want to risk your life in my attempt at getting some.”

“Oh,” I muttered.

Emmett held me in his arms and I nuzzled my head into his shoulder. “And, we do have some things to talk about,” he said, his tone suddenly serious.

I had never really seen this side of Emmett before; usually he was about enjoying the moment and making people laugh. So when I heard those words all I could do was panic. It was almost like the mood of the room changed as soon as Emmett’s did. I knew this was somehow related to Rosalie, and I braced myself for what was next.

“What is it?” I finally asked

“Well, there are several things I wanted to talk to you about. The first, how serious are you about getting changed?”

I was stunned at his question. It really wasn’t what I expected. I thought about it, and I could tell he was getting impatient at my silence, but I really wanted to make sure of my decision.

I knew I loved Emmett, even before we actually met. It almost felt like something was pulling me to him. Being with Emmett forever was exactly what I wanted but could I really give up everything for him. Charlie, Renee, Phil, they were the ones that mattered the most. I weighed my options, and I couldn’t see any other solution that would make me as happy as he did. It didn’t take long for me to realize what I wanted and what I needed.

“Yes, I’m sure,” I finally said.

“Really?” he said, breathing a sigh of relief.

“Yes, really,” I responded.

“I just thought-” he began but abruptly stopped and turned away.

“You just thought what?” I asked confused.

“Well, technically we haven’t been together that long. How do you know that you love me? How do I know you won’t change your mind or regret this decision later on and resent me for changing you?”

“I know this is hard to believe, but I’m sure, Emmett. I mean I find it hard to believe as well, but I love you. Since day one, I’ve had this need that only you’ve been able to fill. When I heard you laugh that first day my heart just melted. It was almost like I was laughing with you. When I first moved here, I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do now. It was you who gave me a reason to get up in the morning, just to get a glimpse of your dimples or to hear you laugh. I curse myself for loosing all that time when I thought you were with Tanya because it would mean you would have no doubt about how I feel about you right now. I know what I want and I want you, need you.”

Emmett smiled widely as I professed my love. He looked into my eyes and said, “You’re really serious aren’t you?”

“Yes,” I said, giving him a kiss on his cheek.

“Good, because I already asked for permission to change you,” he said, interlacing our fingers.

“Wow, you must really want to get in my pants,” I teased.

“Yeah, but that’s not the only reason,” he said, shrugging.

“Care to elaborate?”

“Bella, you know I love you. Before I met you everything was just pleasant, bearable. My life was fun, or at least I though it was. And now with you by my side, I’m able to appreciate things I’ve never thought I would. You’ve awaken this whole other side of me. This better side of me. Did I mention that I love you?” he joked.

“Yeah you did. Wait, who did you have to ask for permission?” I asked the thought catching up to me.

“The wolves, of course. Part of the treaty doesn’t allow us to create more vampires or even bite anyone,” he said matter-of-factly.

“What did they say?”

“From what Edward told us, it was tie. Half of them didn’t mind, if it was your choice. While the other half, flat out refused.”

I cringed at his last words, knowing that Jacob would oppose something like that.

“Where does that leave us?”

“They asked for some time to think about it and we agreed. We’ve got plenty of time until you get changed so we will just have to wait and see,” he said, playing with strands of my hair.

“Oh,” I mumbled, for the hundredth time today.

We were silent for awhile. We could hear Charlie snoring downstairs, and Emmett was still playing with my hair. I thought about it some more, it really wasn’t fair of them to decide something as important as my future. I was debating what to do next when Emmett interrupted me.

“How did it go with Jacob? I know you were with him today?” he asked, trying to hide his discomfort.

“Not so great. Billy, Jacob’s dad, doesn’t like the idea of us dating, and Jacob feels the same way. He doesn’t want to be friends. Wait, how did you know I was with him?”

“Your scent was all over him when we met,” he responded.

“That was you? No wonder he left me there,” I said, remembering the conversation from earlier.

“Are you okay? I know he’s your friend but I don’t think he should be judging our relationship,” Emmett said, his tone serious again.

“I know and I agree. I told him that and he didn’t take it so well. He doesn’t want to be my friend anymore,” I said, the sadness from earlier returning.

“What are you ten? You can’t be friends with him because you’re with me? That’s pretty lame,” he said.

“I know,” I said softly.

He must have noticed my sadness and began to apologize for what he had said. “Bella, I’m sorry. I wish he would be supportive, not just for my sake, but because I know it would mean a lot to you.”

“Yeah, it would.”

It was past midnight now and I was feeling a little tired. I snuggled into Emmett’s chest and fell asleep.

When I woke up the next day, I found a note from Emmett.

Bella,

I had to make my escape before Charlie woke up. I will be there around eleven because that’s when Alice said you’d be ready. I’m looking forward to spending all day with you.

Love, Emmett

I looked at the clock and noticed it was nine thirty. I got up and showered to wake me up. My shower had really given me some time to think about Jake and the situation with the wolves. If Jake wanted to act this way then there was nothing I could do. But as for the rest of the wolves, maybe I could set up a meeting to change theirs minds. I got dressed quickly and went downstairs to eat a bowl of cereal.

Five minutes before it was eleven, I heard a soft knock on my door. I quickly walked over to open it, finding Emmett with another red rose in his hand.

He walked in and kissed my cheek.

“Hey,” he said, closing the door and handing me the rose.

“Hay is for horses,” I replied, smelling the rose.

He laughed at my stupid joke and sat on the couch.

“How are you feeling today?” he asked.

“Better, I’ve had some time to think about it and I’ll be fine,” I said. I wasn’t sure how to run the idea of talking to the wolves by him just yet, so I postponed it until I saw the right time.

“Good, I’m glad. Now on to today’s schedule. First, we will finish all of your homework, then we will be meeting my family in Port Angeles for dinner, and bring you home in time for curfew,” he said a huge grin on his face.

“Your family doesn’t eat, why would we be going somewhere else to eat?”

“It’s a surprise! Come on, call your dad and let him know, and I will go upstairs to get your books.”

I called Charlie to let him know I wouldn’t be home for dinner. He wasn’t that happy when I told him why but he didn’t say anything else.

Emmett was up and down the stairs in an instant. We sat in the kitchen and he helped me with my homework. We talked some more about the future, made plans to travel, and debated transformation dates. It all seemed surreal, being able to have everything I wanted and more. I would have settled for a few years with the man I loved, but instead I was getting eternity with him.

The time quickly passed and soon it was mid-afternoon. I hadn’t realized how much time had passed until my stomach grumbled. I made myself a sandwich and Emmett watched me as I ate, much like our lunchtime at school.

When I was finished eating, we realized that we had finished all of my assignments and had some time to kill. We sat on the couch and I flipped trough the channels hoping to find something to watch.

Quickly, we gave up trying to find something to watch so I took this as an opportunity to get some practice in. The timing was perfect, there was no Charlie around and we had plenty of time before we had to leave.

“There’s nothing to watch,” I said.

“So it seems, what do you suggest we do?” he asked, a wicked grin on his face.

“Well, I was thinking we could always practice,” I said, blushing.

“That sounds... like an excellent idea,” he said.

Instantly, I felt Emmett’s cold lips on my neck. His lips traveled from my neck to my lips. His hands slipped under my shirt, at the small of my back, holding me gently. I lifted his shirt to reveal an amazing body. It had been better than I had imagined. Slowly, his hands began to move up my shirt. I waited for his hands to reach their destination, but instead Emmett pulled away and had his shirt back on.

“What’s wrong?” I asked, worried I had done something wrong.

“We have a visitor,” he said.

“Who?”

“Jacob,” he said, through gritted teeth.
