I looked up, shocked at the sudden sound, over Edwards shoulder, a very nice shoulder may I add, I could see a group of five maybe six guys, and of course, two of them looked exactly like Jacob. I could tell they were twins. Realisation hit me; these must be Jacob’s Grandkids. I stared at them in open mouth amazement. After a full minute they started to frown at me. I felt Edwards arms stiffen and tighten around me as he realised who I was looking at. I took a step away from Edward and towards the werewolves. They froze and Edward pulled me back. I ignored him and walked forward again. Only to have Edward hold me back again, I glared at him until he sighed and let me go, but I could see him tense behind me, ready to rescue me again, like so many times before. This time I didn’t give a damn about what he thought. Okay, not strictly true but I knew he couldn’t stop me from seeing them, I think the only reason he let me go was because he knew this aswell. I took another step forward and even though I could sense that these werewolves were better trained and in more control, I knew they were still dangerous.

But then the weirdest thing happened, the wind changed and blew towards me, I noticed Edward crinkle his nose up as he smelt the werewolves but to me they smelt like Jacob always had, beautiful, home like. The wind changed again and the werewolves got a smell of me. They all froze and stared at me, all of their expressions the same. Confusion, surprise wonderment. One of the Jacob twins stepped forward and sniffed along my arm, he blinked up at me, still bending over my arm. I think he heard Edward growl and he straightened up.

“I’m Jace” he introduced himself “and my twin, Jaran” I smiled at them both and to my and Edwards surprise, they smiled back.

“I’m Bella” I introduced myself “And my friend Edward” I think Edward was a bit peeved but he didn’t mention that they’d found us kissing about a minute ago.

“Bella…” Jace murmured “why does that ring a bell?” then chuckled at his own little joke.

“Bells, it rings Bells” Jaran laughed and I realised that he’d figured it out, he was smiling at me warmly “He told us you’d be back, he said you can always trust Bella, but watch out for her ex, he’s a crafty bugger and if you get a chance to beat the crap out of him, please, feel free” we all stared at him, I could hear Edward growling behind me.

“He’s kidding, Bella, but only about that last bit” Jace laughed. I joined in aswell, the other boys were staring at the brothers like they were crazy.

Then again, with Jacob as a family member, you never know.

Suddenly Jace and Jaran both jumped forward and hugged me, I was surprised at first but then I hugged them back. I felt Edward take a step forward but being in the twins embrace made me remember Jacob and I liked that so I pushed him back with my mind, he made a noise of protest but I held him there, burying my face in Jace’s chest, I was shaking with the effort not to cry, they seemed to realise this and they patted my back soothingly.

“Never thought a bloodsucker could smell so good” I heard Jace murmur and I couldn’t help but giggle, I drew back and they saw the tears on my cheeks.

“Never thought a dog could smell so good, either” we laughed together as the other werewolves and Edward looked on in confusion and puzzlement.

chapter five

I wanted that moment to wait forever, but of course, it wasn’t likely to. Apart from Edward thinking I was slightly crazy, which, who knows? Maybe I am. Well, whatever, if I am then crazy is at least fun. And as I stood there, with Jace and Jaran, I felt good, happy, and the hole in my chest loosened a little bit.

But nooooooo, it couldn’t stay like that, could it? Apparently my life was destined for disaster. One after the other. But ignoring that fact, I smiled with the twins. Ignoring the jealous vampire at my back.

“I’m so happy you came” Jace smiled “we were actually starting to think you’d never come back”

I smiled and shook my head “I wish things had gone differently, I never got a chance to say goodbye to Jake” I said sadly. Jace hugged me again.

“He never stopped loving you y’know, he fell for Naomi, and they had kids but he never forgot you” he whispered comfortingly.

“How would you know?” I asked, tears running down my face

I felt Jace’s silent laugh against my chest, because we were still hugging “because he told me and Jaran stories about you, about the motor bikes you had, the cliff-diving, believe me, Bells, he loved you”

I heard Edward growl a little and that did it for me, I swung around and glared at him.

“Jake never deserted me and you did it TWICE!” I screamed at him, ignoring the look of shock on his face “Jake was my best friend and he was always there for me, I loved him, god dammit!” I screamed this aswell “you have NO RIGHT to growl at him, NO RIGHT. He kept me sane , he stopped me from dying because YOU left ME, not the other way around, so STOP feeling sorry for yourself and start thinking about how I feel” after my little rant I collapsed on to the ground, sobbing my heart out, I felt the twin’s arms around me, almost instantly. I glanced up once and saw the Cullen’s and my family all standing a little way back and I realised that they had heard every word I had said and I only cared a little bit, my family made their way over to me, I knew Jason would smell ok to the werewolves because I made him and I also knew that the werewolves would put up with Victoria and Mika because they were family.

We all huddled in a big group, me, Victoria, Jason, Mika, Jace and Jaran. I was the only one crying, I was the only one able to. Well, the werewolves could of but really, you don’t cry in front of the enemy, do you?

Not me obviously, but Edward and the rest of the Cullen’s. After awhile, a looong while, we all pulled apart and the only way anyone would know I had been crying was the wet t-shirts. Everyone was watching me, it was kind of uncomfterble but I just wiped my face and stood up, looking at the floor, see what I mean by disaster after disaster?

Edward stepped forward “I’m sorry, Bella, I just…I just got a little jealous, that’s all, I didn’t mean to hurt you” I looked up into his eyes and I knew he was telling the truth, somehow I knew it.

I went up to him and I hugged him, to me he was like a safe haven and I loved that. I loved him.

“Will you stay?” he whispered into my ear, I glanced at the others and they all smiled at me, I knew they’d go along with whatever I wanted.

“Yeah” I smiled “we’ll stay”

And then I kissed him.
