Like Father, Like Son
The sun broke through the horizon, I lay on the pile of dirt, crying, and thrashing like a baby missing its mother.
I dug my nails into the dirt, I felt some one pick me up slowly, but with gentle arms, I sobbed into his chest digging my nails into his skin, he didn't feel anything.
"Shh...Bella, it's fine...it's fine." Edward whispered while he stroked my hair. "Come on, lets get out of the cemetery, it wont do you good to stay here any longer." Edward towed me out of the cemetery, I looked once more at Jacob's tomb and gasped.
It finally really kicked in that he was dead. He would never return, I would never see him again.
"How long were you there?" Edward asked me.
"What day is it?" I asked stupidly.
"Since yesterday 7pm." I said.
"You've been here all night?"
"Lets go see your children." Edward offered. I nodded again and he sped our way to my house, for me to change.
"You can come in and see them." The nurse said happily, I saw her eyes sparkle when they rested on Edward. "I'll bring in more chairs..." She stopped in front of Carlisle and he bit his lip, "You look familiar, have I seen you before?" She asked.
Carlisle straightened up, "No my dear lady, if I would of I would have remembered you." He said in a charming voice leaving the nurse dazed and confused. Esme snickered.
I walked in slowly, I noticed little Alice and Anthony were both watching television, it was put into their favorite channel.
Little Alice looked up happily, "Mommy!" She said, her voice was weak and her eyes looked droopy and tired, I tried to smile, but a tear escaped my eye. Anthony looked stronger but still very weak.
I walked in between the two beds and sat down int he chair, "I have some people I would want you to meet." I said.
"Mommy? Why hasn't daddy visited us yet?" Little Alice asked.
I winced, "He's ...er...busy, he'll come soon, promise." I said and little Alice nodded as well as Anthony. "OK you want to meet the new people?" I asked, they nodded happily.
As soon as I finished my sentence Alice, Emmett, Carlisle, Rosalie, Jasper, Esme, and Edward walked in happily, each of them holding balloons.
"Hey, I remember you!" Anthony yelped, "You're Edward! Hi again!"
Little Alice blushed when she noticed Edward also, I knew she had a small crush on him since Edward dropped by.
"Hello." Edward responded winking at little Alice, she giggled, and bigger Alice smacked him on the arm.
"Alice, this is, Alice, my best friend that I named you after." I said, Alice stepped forward, her eyes soft and happy.
"Hi, Alice!" Bigger Alice exclaimed.
Little Alice's eyes widened in happiness. "You're pretty! I like you, you're nice too!"
Alice sighed, I saw sadness in her eyes. "Of course you know my brother, Edward, ow meet my husband, Jasper." Alice said.
Jasper walked up. "Hello, Alice, Anthony. I would like you to meet my twin Rosalie."
Rosalie walked up and gave Anthony and little Alice a hug, "Hello, you two, you're mother has said nothing but beautiful things about you." She said.
Anthony gaped at Rosalie.
"Meet my husband Emmett." Emmett came out and Anthony and little Alice craned their heads to see him, they smiled.
Emmett gave them his famous bear hugs. "Meet my mother Esme."
Esme looked sad when she walked up to see my children, she looked at me and gave both of them a hug. A tear escaped my eyes wen I saw my children met my former family. The final Cullen walked up and I knew he could sense my children's exhaustion, the sadness crept over me and Jasper immediately send his waves of calm.
The nurse entered with two chairs, another younger nurse entered with another two and a male doctor entered the room with another two.
"Bella, you're children are lovely," Esme said giving me a helpful hug.
"Thank you, Esme."
"I like Alice." Alice said walking up to little Alice. Little Alice giggled as soon as Alice pulled out Candy Land.
"I like them both!" Emmett said, his booming voice making Anthony jump with excitement.
The sun was beginning to set and Anthony was beginning to fall asleep in Rosalie's arms. Little Alice was giggling happily as Emmett and Edward told her jokes. "I love vampires, my mother is fond of them too, she has a couple of vampire books and I was a vampire once for Halloween!" Little Alice exclaimed. Emmett and Edward chuckled.
"Bella." Alice whispered in a gasp.
I looked at her as soon as she froze, her eyes were far away and I knew that look. She breathed heavily once more and started weeping. I looked over to Rosalie, she froze, Carlisle got up and moved to Anthony quickly. Rosalie stood up and walked towards me. Emmett and Edward left little Alice to come by me. Edward held on to my hand. Jasper sent another one of his waves but it wouldn't work, my sadness for my son's approaching death was too much for Jasper's power to control.
Esme froze on her chair, I knew seeing children die was hard for her, especially since her baby died.
Anthony's pulse quickened just as Jacob's had, I pushed through Edward and Carlisle and wrapped my arms around him. Anthony heaved for air and trembled in my arms. Carlisle shook his head as well as Alice - I knew that was confirmation for Anthony's death. I hugged him hard trying to contain his soul in his small body, I sobbed uncontrollably, my body shaking, the tears falling like a waterfall on Anthony's bed.
Little Alice stared wide-eyed shocked. Nurses flew in the room and took little Alice out. The doctor pushed me off of Anthony and I kicked as much as I did for Jacob to get back to my son's side. I yelled in pain and anguish as I saw Anthony's eyes shoot open, terrified and then stare blankly into space.
"No!" I yelled and fell to the floor thrashing, Edward picked me up and I clutched onto his arm.
My heart pumped hard in my chest as soon as I saw Anthony's pulse slow. Edward let me go and I fell to my knees in front of Anthony's bed. He sighed, "Mommy." And then his pulse stopped forever.
"Nooooooo!" I crawled on top of the bed, lying my body on top of my son's, sobbing uncontrollably. "Anthony, No!"
My baby was dead, I clutched onto his little body, the little body that I held and cradled when he was a baby, the little body that hugged me every time he came back from school, the little body that I treated when he was sick.. His warm smile and kind soul was gone forever. I shut my eyes hoping the sadness would kill me too.
