Jacob’s point of View

“God damnit Edward! Why won’t you help me?! She’s your daughter for fucks sake!” I screamed at the top of my lungs but failed to get through to anyone. Alice rolled her eyes and I felt like breaking the little bloodsucker’s neck.

“She’s happy where she is now Jacob, can’t you just leave her alone?” Bella whimpered. Edward crossed his arms and stared at me dead in the face.

“No! No I can’t! Not until I know that she’s really safe…you saw that letter! You know how shady it looked!” Rosalie walked in, hands on her hips.

“What is that mutt barking about now?” She growled. I had enough of these good for nothing leeches.

“Your stupid brother won’t help me find Renesmee! I know something’s up! This couldn’t be right!” I yelled throwing my hands in the air. Rosalie winced at her long lost niece’s name.

“Don’t be stupid Jacob, Renesmee is fine. I don’t want you out there chasing after her like a mad man and neither does Bella.” Edward finally spoke but when he did I saw something in his eyes. He knew exactly where she was.

“You stupid vampire!” I phased and lunged at him but he gripped my throat in his hands and held me at arms length.

“No Jacob! Let me explain! Where she is…you don’t want to find her!” My body went limp and I squirmed out of his grasp and dropped down on four legs. What did he mean by that? I found myself going through every possible scenario, wondering where she could be that was so bad. My Renesmee. “She doesn’t go By Renesmee any more Jacob. She’s Vanessa now.” Edward said grimacing.

“God Edward, why didn’t you tell me? You saw me in pain, you watched me tear myself up about it! Why didn’t you just tell me?” I thought.

“Jacob, I don’t even like thinking about it myself and the rest of us- well you can say we’ve each been coping with it in our own way.” Bella buried her head in Edward’s shoulder and sobbed dry tears. I should’ve known.

“Where is she?” I asked feeling very cold and lifeless.

“You know I can’t tell you that Jacob. Where she is…it’s impossible. It’s over now Jacob.” The hairs on the back of my neck stood up and I barred my teeth in a growl.

“It’ll never be over Edward. Just take her to me or I’ll find her myself.” I had been looking for over a year now…what’s a couple more? Edward sighed.

“If I take you to her you have to promise me not to…lose control. This is not just some family road trip, this is dangerous, something we can’t even defy.” I gave them my best doggy-smile.

“Dangerous is my middle name, Edward. Now take me to her” Edward turned towards Bella gripping her in his arms. It made me sick.

“Are you okay with this love? Do you want to come?” She nodded yes and suddenly all the vamps were in the room.

“Oh Edward, this is just too dangerous. What will they do?” She asked. Edward smiled.

“Don’t worry about it Bella, we’ll be fine with you around.” Bella smiled and turned away.

“It looks like I have some calls to make.” Carlisle said behind me and disappeared a second later.

“I don’t know about this Edward. It’s seems very-” Jasper started but was interrupted by Emmett’s booming laughter.

“Hell yeah! We’re going to Volterra!” He walked in the room eyes wide with excitement. He slapped me on the back while he made his way to Edward and Bella. “Time to get me little Nessie Back!” He picked Bella up in a monster bear hug and she pushed him away.

“I don’t think she’ll be coming back with us Emmett.” Bella murmured.

“Why not?” I asked hoping Edward would hear.

“Because she doesn’t want to come back Jacob, she’s happy where she is.” He frowned and Esme walked in looking very unaware. The only thing that even hinted to her knowing where we were going was the perpetual scowl she wore on her face.

“I guess it’s time now isn’t it?” She sighed and I grunted angrily. Why wasn’t anybody as happy as I was? Did they even want to see her? Edward turned away ashamed. What a coward.

“I’m leaving to tell the pack about my plans, I’ll be back soon.” I said in my mind trying to suppress all the angst and anger that was raging inside of me. What would be the outcome of this trip? I mean, what’s the worst that could happen?

***

That night I slept in a frenzy of dreams, after each one I laid awake trying to erase it from my mind. It didn’t help that they were all about Renesmee, about her and her demon spawn who I once claimed to love. How could I love him now? After he took something so precious away from me…

They all started the same- I was holding her soft warm body in my arms, caressing her face, kissing her sweet lips. They had a certain taste to them though, which didn’t exactly register in my mind until later. Her eyes fluttered open revealing marbled brown eyes.

“I love you Jacob.” She whispered into my ear. I remember the chills that ran down my spine and how they were so delightfully frightening. I was in complete and utter bliss.

Then all of a sudden her body jerked wildly next to mine and her pain twisted in agony. That’s when it turned into a nightmare. She grabbed a hold of my arms and squeezed them so tight the bones cracked and crunched, she clenched her jaw and writhed out of my arms. She was slowly getting away. I took a step back from her and saw the blood- oh there was always so much blood. More and more every time the dream occurred. She screamed in pain and I reached out to her only to be swiped away by her steel hands that whistled as they whirled past me.

“No Jacob!” She roared and I turned away appalled by the gruesome scene. I clenched my eyes shut, each moment growing in anticipation. This was the moment when I tried to make myself wake up. I just wanted to be back in her arms again. Then I heard it- the soft cries of a child and Renesmee’s gentle cooing. The hair on the back of my neck stood on ends and my hole body erupted in fire- I was on fire.

When I turned around I saw the most beautiful child in the world, eyes glowing like rubies in the snow, skin the color of orchids, lips peachy and pink. The more stunning the creature became the angrier I got until my anger consumed me and I found myself towering over it burning it alive. I watched the child burn alive beneath me until it was a pile of ashes. As the ashes blew away I turned around to see Renesmee all white and ghost like- just a mirage. I always woke up with an empty feeling, I couldn’t feel my legs or my arms…or my face. I was just some lost soul sleeping in a stranger’s bed, cold from the loss of Renesmee’s warm touch. I lay awake that night thinking about her and her beautiful child- if I killed him I would be killing her and that was the last thing I wanted.

What would be waiting for me when I left the next morning? Surely the kid was half grown then, surely it had some whacked out power that made it beyond special, I couldn’t imagine her having any child less then magnificent. It was only natural to her. But the one thing I knew for certain of was her mate- whoever he was would die. It surpassed my control, I knew this because when I thought about him I was completely calm and content. That’s how easy it would be, like striking a match. I only hoped that it wouldn’t hurt her too much. The dawn crept slowly forward- it was almost time, the day of my Vendetta, and the last chapter of reconciliation. It would all be over soon- even my life, I understood.
