Edward cleared his throat. It was then I realized that I was still sitting on his lap, holding Jacob’s hand, with everyone staring at us like we were freaks or something. I had disappeared into my old world I used to have with Jake. I let go of his still warm, feverish hand and leaned back on Edward’s chest.

I flushed a new color. Edward ran his hand across my cheek.

“So Jacob, where will you be staying? You are welcome here, but if you would like to go some where else, that is your choice.

“You may not go back to the reservation, though. Or at least not to stay for a long time period. You could probably go back to retrieve your belongings and say a quick goodbye, but they will probably restrict you from the reservation, as we are.” Carlisle’s still polite and friendly tone struck me.

Jacob still had his eyes intently placed on mine, as he nodded his head.

“I would like that. After I get a shower and change into some clean clothes, I think… I would enjoy staying with you.”

He still held my gaze which caused another blush to creep across my cheeks, one blending in with the other. My cheeks were extremely red, though I wasn’t completely sure why I was blushing so much. Although I was becoming self conscious from his gaze.

“That is fine. I’m sure one of my sons is willing to lend you some clothes for tonight. We will prepare a room. Rosalie and Esme would you mind organizing the guest room?” he smiled at his wife.

“Yes, of course. Come Rosalie.” She kissed Carlisle on the cheek and left the room with Rosalie close at her heals.

“Emmett, your clothes will probably fit most comfortably. Would you be so kind to lend some to, Jacob?”

“Sure, I don’t mind.” He flashed his big, childish grin as he got up gracefully on his big feet and raced his way up the steps to his room.

“Thank you, your family is very welcoming. Now… that I’m one of you… it is easier to see your kindness.” He had finally turned away form me and spoke towards Carlisle.

“Thank you, it’s no problem. We will finish up our conversation later. Why don’t you go get a shower? I’m sure you would like to get out of those bloody clothes. Perhaps you would like to go hunting afterwards; usually newborns are exceptionally thirsty.”

“Yes, that will be nice. I do have a bit of a tingle in my throat. Even though that idea sounds repulsive, it’s probably best not to starve myself.” I was shocked at their politeness to one another. My mouth was hanging open in astonishment.

I looked towards Jasper to see if he possibly had something to do with it by playing with the emotions in the air, but he was dazed off in Alice’s direction, not even paying attention to the conversation.

Edward chuckled at my reaction. I quickly shut my mouth and just gawked at them.

“It’s a lot easier when we are all the same species, love.” He whispered in my ear. I blushed again.

Jacob too snickered at my reaction too.

It seemed that this could possibly work. Edward and Jacob were being… kind to one another at the moment or maybe it was just because I was present, but I hoped it was the other reason. The Cullen’s were welcoming him with open arms and Jacob and I could still be friends. Everything seemed easier with this new, sudden change.

Alice’s horrid gasp broke my train of thought. Edward whipped his head around to hers. They looked eyes for a brief moment before she abruptly closed them. My eyes were stuck upon their distressed expressions.

“Oh no,” Alice whispered through her clenched teeth as her eyes fluttered open again.

“What is it, love?” Jasper took his wife’s face in his hands, trying to sooth her as he ran his frigid fingertips across her cheeks, making an invisible pattern.

I knew that dazed, blank look on her face. She was having a vision, and it wasn’t a cheerful one either.

Edward hold around my waist tightened and his face no longer calm and composed, but a growl broke out of his clenched jaw.

“They’re coming,” was all Alice said.

“Who is coming?” I was frantic.

Everyone was ignored me as if I wasn’t there. No one would answer me and I was getting extremely frantic.

“Edward, what is going on? Who is coming?” I grabbed hold of his face and made him look at me. Deep into his eyes I saw what he could not hide. He too was nervous and anxious.

“Nothing, not something you need to worry about.” He seemed to choke out the last words. He was lying and not very well.

“Edward, anything that concerns you, concerns me. Tell me what Alice saw, now.” I tried to be forceful, but the fear leaked through my convincing voice.

“Would anyone like to tell me what’s going on? Because I am so lost, that’s it’s not even funny.” Jacob begged too for information.

“Alice had a vision, Jacob, but I don’t know what it was about.” I stared at Edward who still had his eyes zeroed in on Alice.

“Edward, you have to tell her, you can’t keep it from her forever. They are partially coming for her too, so she deserves the right to know.”

“NO!” Edward yelled back, I had never seen him raise his voice to Alice.

“Alice, what did you see? We all deserve know what is going on.” Carlisle demanded.

Suddenly the rest of the family appeared in the doorway to the front room with all their eyes searching the room, trying to understand what was happening. I flinched at their sudden appearance.

“What the hell is going on?” Emmett raised his voice, obviously very confused, as always.

“Alice had a very serious and apparently life changing vision that we are trying to understand, but Edward won’t let her tell us.” Jasper spoke roughly, getting annoyed that he didn’t know what his wife was seeing.

“Well, Edward how about you just shut up right now and let Alice talk.” Emmett suggested with a bit of sarcasm.

Alice gasped again and that same blank look crossed her pale, fragile like face. Her eyes visibly darkened in color now a pitch black, almost like she hadn’t hunted in months, but they were also deep and frightened.

“Alice, what is it?” Carlisle urged on.

Edward chest rumbled and his eyes too darkened in color and the grip on my waist tightened even more, making it harder to breathe.

Everyone ignored Edward’s threatening objections and inched closer to Alice. Her words were spoke so soft and quickly that I barley caught them myself, but I knew momentarily understood them.

“It’s the Volturi, they’re coming… for them.” She whispered through her clenched jaw. She pointed two, shaky fingers at Jacob and I.
