Epilogue--- The Essence of Perfection

Ally’s POV:

“You’re pushing it, Jake.” I muttered. Although I was absolutely loving the feeling of his hot lips brushing up and down my throat, I knew we had to stop soon. Billy would be home any minute from watching the game at the Swan house, and I didn’t want him or the cop to see us in this compromising position.

“I’m not pushing anything…yet.” He whispered. I tried to suppress the giggle that formed, but it was impossible. I was always laughing and smiling these days.

“If Billy or Charlie catch us, I’m going to kill you.” I warned. He simply shifted his arm that was on my waist and pulled me even closer. My empty threat was obviously ignored.

The couch in the living room – where we were currently snuggling, sagged beneath us as the movie progressed. It probably wasn’t a good sign that I couldn’t even remember the name of the movie – Jake’s kisses had started right after the opening credits.

“Don’t worry, I’ll hear the car a mile off.” He said smugly, probably feeling my tension. I knew I shouldn’t rely completely on his werewolf instinct, but come on…the way his nose skimmed my collar bone was enough to make me melt. I was only human!

Suddenly, he was on the ground, holding his head in obvious pain.

“Oh my god Jake, what’s wrong?” I asked, kneeling next to him with a hand on his cheek in an effort to calm his shaking. In a few seconds it began to work, and his breathing slowed to a slight pant.

“Damn.” He cursed under his breath. “Stupid Sam.”

“What? What is it?” I asked, surprised. Jake usually held high respect for the pack leader and I didn’t understand why he was now cursing him.

“He gave me strict boundaries…of how far I could go with you.” He murmured softly, looking away and taking a sip of the coke that was sitting on the coffee table.

I sighed, knowing how hard it was for him to obey Sam’s orders even though he could have been Alpha. Jake and I had a lot of complications…me with a vampire brother and him being a werewolf. It’s good we had love to keep us together forever though. Haha, how corny was that?

“Sweetheart, it’s no big deal. Don’t worry about it.” I said, smiling and leaning over to give him a kiss on the cheek. Instead, he turned his head and caught my lips with his own, making me dizzy and breathless once again.

Only a month had passed since Bella and Edward’s wedding and I was completely high on my life. Everything was so perfect: I had love, I talked to Dan and the rest of the Cullens/Hales everyday, sometimes on the phone, and sometimes we would meet somewhere…I hadn’t met Bells in person yet, because she was still controlling her blood lust.

She told me it was kind of hard, but she was getting used to life as a vampire; especially since her family was helping her with all of it. I only had to wait a couple more days to see her though, and I was pretty excited because we were best friends and I sorely missed seeing her. Everyone other than the wolves and vampires and of course, me, thought that they were currently on a honeymoon in Europe.

And then I also had a new family. The La Push gang had taken me under their wing and treated me like I was part of their big clan. I went over to Emily’s house when Jake wasn’t around or when I was simply bored. I loved cooking and cleaning in the Black house and Billy was always around to give me company and tell me stories of when Jake was a kid.

“I love you, did you know that?” Jake whispered in my ear. His breath was hot and it tickled me.

“Yes, but I love you more.”

“No, I think that’s impossible. I love you more.”

“You’re cheesy, did you know that?” I laughed when he gave me a fake pout. I caught a glimpse of the TV and smiled. I remembered now; we were watching Fast and Furious.

“Damn, look at that. That’s pretty hot.” I said.

“Are you saying the car is hot, or the man inside is hot?” Jake replied, raising his eyebrow and watching the movie also. I laughed again.

“To tell you the truth, I didn’t even notice the guy inside. I was too busy looking at the car.” He grinned at me and gave me a quick peck on the lips.

“That’s why we’re so perfect together, Ally.” Jake said, holding me closer in his lap.

Perfect. What a word. What did it take to be perfect? Perfection was such an unreliable thing. It could fall apart in less than a second, then all your hard work would be for nothing. I used to hate perfection; I used to make sure that everything I did was not too perfect, even singing, cars, or grades. But now, everything has kind of fallen into place and perfect is just a word that can be used to describe the life I was living now.

Living with your one-of-a-kind hottie boyfriend, who would do practically anything for you, and then having a huge family and tons of friends that were ready to save you…it definitely felt perfect. I sighed. I think way too much. The only thing that wasn’t perfect was that the Cullens would be leaving soon, and taking Dan with them. They would fake Bella’s death and would leave so that no one would know she was turned into a vampire. It was depressing, so I tried not to think about that too much, especially around Jake…he got angry and kind of sad whenever Bella’s leaving would come up in conversation.

“Here they come.” Jake rolled his eyes, pulling me out of my reverie. He took me off his lap and sat next to me on the sofa, simply holding my hand. Sure enough, about ten seconds later, Billy came in with Charlie rolling his wheelchair.

“Hey kids.” Billy said in his deep rumbling voice.

“Hey Jake, Ally.” Charlie said kindly.

“Hey dad, Charlie. What’s up?” Jake asked indifferently.

“Celtics won, like I said.” Charlie said, grinning. I was sure he just gained a substantial amount of money for his prediction. The bet reminded me of Alice…I wonder if she would take me to the mall tomorrow?

“Are you guys hungry?” I asked. They all nodded and I stood up, walking to the kitchen and taking out the left over lasagna. I had to cook a lot more than I was used to, because Jake and I both ate like wild dogs, and then some of the other wild dogs (meaning Quil and Embry) sometimes came over…they told me that they loved my cooking, but I think those boys would eat anything.

While the men were eating, I went to my room and changed into my pajamas. I got a small room right next to Jake’s and I had earned my very own bathroom, although I still had to use the shower in Jake’s and Billy’s bathroom. I shuddered at the very thought of how awkward each morning was. I mostly took a shower when I was sure the other two were busy.

It’s worth it all though.

Dan’s POV:

“You are completely insane.” I whispered, unable to speak out loud.

Alice and I were standing in front of my closet – which boasted a complete, brand new wardrobe, containing anything I could ever dream of wearing.

“I’m not insane, I’m just a really good sister.” She winked at me and I scowled.

“Alice, please go return all these things, I don’t need them. Please.” I pleaded with her. She shook her head at me and Jasper appeared by my side.

“I see she finally took over your closet as well. Get used to it Dan, she’s been doing it for all of us for the past couple of decades.” He said, grinning at Alice.

“This is completely unnecessary.” I stated.

“I agree!” Bella said, coming in my room and putting her hands on her hips. “Alice, why is my closet suddenly full of clothes? I told you guys not to spend extra money on me!”

“Yeah, I said so too!” I piped in. I thanked God that someone else realized the insanity of money-spending in this house.

Either it was Edward trying to buy us a new car, or Emmett trying to buy computers, TVs, and videogames, or Alice trying to buy clothes that we would never even need. Bella and I were at the end of our ropes here.

“I’m getting a job. I’ll pay all of this off--” I started before Carlisle came in, interrupting me.

“Here you two, I got both of your credit cards…” He said, handing me and Bella platinum credit cards while we both became flustered and shocked, shaking our heads.

“No, no. I don’t need this.” Bella said, trying to hand the card back.

“No way am I using this.” I said also, resisting the urge to throw it across the room, and away from me.

“Enough of this, you are both apart of this family now and I think you should start acting as such! We all love you two and these are for emergencies.” Carlisle commanded, shutting both of us up.

“Hey guys, guess what?” Emmett said, strolling in, along with Edward who wrapped his arms around Bella. Is everyone going to come into my room now? I thought, as we all asked what.

“I’m going to propose to Rosalie. Just thought you guys should know.” He said, sitting down on my bed and playing with my recently acquired cell phone. Rosalie was gone hunting so I suppose he was telling us now for a good reason.

“Wow, congratulations, Emmett!” I said happily, patting him on the back. I looked around, kind of confused at everyone else’s reactions. They all looked bored, as if nothing important had even happened. “Uh, guys, aren’t you excited?”

“Nope, this happens every couple of years.” Emmett said indifferently. “I propose romantically which makes her happy, then we have another wedding, then another honeymoon. They’re all just used to it by now. She loves it, so I do it over and over again for her.”

“Hmm, that’s love for you.” I muttered. He grinned and sat up.

“So how are you going to propose this time, Emmett?” Jasper asked.

“He’s going to take her up in an air balloon ride and ask her to be his and only his.” Alice said, smiling.

“Wait, I am?” Emmett asked, curiously. Alice nodded and Bella sighed happily.

“What does she say?” Bella asked.

“Yes, of course, Emmett. I love you with my whole dead heart.” Alice said, imitating Rosalie’s voice perfectly. She was so good at that!

“Cool, at least she won’t launch into fake tears this time.” Emmett responded. They all laughed and then quieted as Esme poked her head through the doorway.

“Um, does anyone want to watch this movie with me?” She said. We all followed her out to the living room where a cartoon movie was playing.

“Ugh, Peter Pan again, Esme?” Emmett groaned. She nodded helplessly and smiled.

“I love it…but I don’t want to watch it alone.” We all sat down for her benefit. I didn’t know how many times she had seen the movie before, but she was whispering with it word-for-word.

“She’s seen it some 157 times, Dan.” Edward said, probably listening to my thoughts.

We all sat in peace, just watching the movie before Rosalie came in and dropped into Emmett’s lap, kissing him and greeting the rest of us.

“Good hunt?” I asked politely. I think I was still trying to get on her good side…I never really knew with her. Sometimes she talked to me and acted like she was my sister, and other times she ignored me and blew me off. It was quite confusing, really. From the corner of my eye, I saw Edward turn and give me sympathetic look.

“Somewhat. Did you guys know that they’re renting out air balloons tonight? The weather is apparently going to be perfect and so the Sporting Goods store is having a special…” She said. Emmett grinned brightly and we all tried to hide our laughter. Of course we knew.

Suddenly we all heard a doorbell ring and Carlisle was the first to answer it. The rest of us looked to Alice and Edward and they were both smiling.

Bella’s POV:

“Who is it?” I asked Edward who wrapped his arms even tighter around my waist.

“You’ll see.” He replied, smiling that favorite crooked smile of mine.

“Hey guys, mind if I come in?” I heard a sweet voice say. I gasped as the sweet smell of blood drifted towards my nose. I took a deep breath through my mouth and rehearsed the calming methods Alice and Edward had taught me. I am not a monster, I am a perfectly sane being. I will not let this monster grow…

“Bella, remember the steps…” Edward was whispering worriedly in my ear. But I didn’t need the steps anymore as I saw Ally smiling at me in the midst of her hug with Dan.

“Bells, I can leave if you want--” She started, but I interrupted her with a huge smile and a waving of my hand.

“No! I missed you so much Al!” I tried to stand, but Edward’s arms were still firmly locked. I could have easily brushed them off, but I was pretty good at being gentle with my newfound strength.

“Edward, I’m fine. It’s not even bothering me.” I said. He sighed and nodded, letting go reluctantly. I walked over and now 10 feet only separated her and me.

“I missed you too, Bella!” She was about to reach out and give me a hug, but then she dropped her arms.

“I’m sorry, Ally.” I whispered. I wanted to hug her also, but I knew just a couple steps closer and something dangerous might happen.

“It’s fine! Look, I got you something.” Ally said.

“What is it with people wanting to buy me stuff!” I almost yelled hysterically. She laughed and handed Dan a piece of paper. He handed it to me and I smiled apologetically for my behavior.

“I’m sorry, it’s just that everyone wants to buy me and Dan things…it’s starting to make me a little hysterical.” I said. Everyone laughed and Dan and I scowled. I opened the piece of paper and recognized Jacob’s handwriting.

Hey Bells,

I accept your decision and all, but I just can’t face seeing you as someone so different. I hope you understand. Say hi to the rest of the bloodsuckers for me…and tell Dan that I’m taking good care of Ally. Thanks for everything, Bella. You helped me out a lot, and I’ll never forget you.

Love,

Jake

PS: I hope I see you again sometime

The letter tore at my heart and I became literally breathless…it felt like someone had punched me in the stomach. As if dealing with the blood lust wasn’t enough, Jake had to go and remind me that I would never see Charlie or Renee ever again? And that Jake and I were immortal enemies now?

“Honestly, that boy has no brains.” I muttered, putting the letter in my pocket and crossing my arms over chest. Thanking the heavens for once that I couldn’t cry tears or blush anymore.

“But he does have a heart.” Ally replied simply walking over and hugging Alice, Edward, Jasper, Rosalie, Emmett, Carlisle, and Esme.

“So, what are we doing today?” She asked, invariably starting the bickering match all over again.

I smiled and joined in…this was my family and I would do whatever I possibly could to enjoy every part of it.
