"Edward, I was so upset with you, but I could never ever hate you. You're the first boy I ever loved, and to be honest, you were the only guy I loved," she said as she glanced over at me.
I couldn't help it. Did Bella still have feelings for me? We still had so much to talk about, but as I looked up at the sky, I saw that it was getting dark. I knew that Alice wouldn't mind visiting with Renesmee for another hour or two. I was going to make sure that Bella and I talked about everything we needed to if it was the last thing I did.
"Bella?" I took a deep breath.
"Um… do you think there's a chance for us getting back together?"
Now the ball was in her court. I just hoped that my question wasn't too premature.
My eyes were shocked at Edward's question. Could I tell him how I really felt after everything he had done to me? I just wasn't sure anymore. Edward was different. He wasn't the boy that I fell in love with anymore. He was so different – so very different. But it was a good 'different' and it was the reason why I was falling in love with Edward again. But I just wasn't sure if I should.
"Edward, I –"
"Bella, I'm sorry. That was really uncalled for."
I shrugged my shoulders as I looked at him. How could he make me feel so shy and scared? It was a feeling that I wasn't used to. Even when I was human, I never in my right mind felt this way, and it worried me. Did Edward really have such a strong effect on me like this?
"No, Edward," I began then paused for a moment, my eyes looking over at Edward, and I bit down on my lower lip. "I don't think it is. I mean, I honestly am still trying to sort out all the feelings I feel for you because I am really confused, Edward. I don't want to hurt you but you hurt me pretty badly when you left."
"Bella, I understand-"
"That's the thing, Edward. You really don't understand," I sighed as I stood up and looked around us, again biting down on my lower lip. "You weren't here. You just left. You have no idea how emotional I was when I found I was pregnant. It was really bad, along with the fact that me being pregnant with a vampire's child wasn't the easiest…"
"Bella, I'm sorry."
"Sorry just doesn't cut it," I sighed hating that I was hurting him, and I looked away from him. "Look, I am not trying to make you feel bad, Edward, but it was so hard. My pregnancy was the hardest thing I've ever gone through, and yet, I am so grateful for Nessie. I couldn't ask for anything more."
"Edward, I do love you, but it's going to take so much more to forgive what you did to me. I just don't know what I'm going to need you to do if you really want to be with me again. Please give me some time to think through this."
Imprinting – yeah, it was a load of crap, or at least, that's what I thought until I met that beautiful blond. God, she was gorgeous, and I knew without a doubt that the guys were pissed at me. Then again, it wasn't my fault since no wolf who had imprinted had ever chosen the right one for them. After all, look at the relationship with Sam, Emily, and Leah. Leah was still bitter and Sam still loved Leah. It was a fucked up situation.
I suddendly stopped walking when I came across a familiar smell and I raised an eyebrow. Strawberry and freesia – I'd know those two scents anywhere. I wanted so much to believe that Bella was safe but she had been gone for years. I looked around because I also sensed a different smell and I shook my head. There was a vampire around, too? Geez, what was with these damn leeches being everywhere?
Hell, I wasn't even in La Push at this very moment since the girl I imprinted on – well, she wasn't human let's say. I tracked my imprint down here and I sighed at the thought. She was definitely the most exquisite girl that I had ever met and it amazed me that I could even feel this way for her. I had never seen her in my life before but I knew that I wanted - no, needed - to get to know her. When I first saw her, she was walking to the beach with her sister and her sister's lover. When I did make an appearance, making a fool out of myself, the three of them left, and they were really fast. It aggravated me that I didn't even get to get her name.
I turned my head and I saw her. Bells looked great, actually, and she wasn't dead. I was just about to smile when I smelled those three combinations – strawberries, freesia, and vampire. Bells was a damn leech and I didn't like it at all. When I looked at her, the one feature that I did notice right away was the color of her eyes – the same golden, topaz color that all those damn Cullens had.
"Bella, what the hell were you thinking?" I growled as my eyes scrutinized my once best friend and I shook my head in disbelief. "How could you let those damn leeches do this to you?"
I saw the frown cross her face. "Jake, they didn't do this to me."
"Huh? What happened, then, Bella? You're a vampire. You're not saying this just to protect him, are you?"
She sighed again and shook her head. "Jake, I was pregnant."
My eyes went wide as I looked at her, raising my eyebrows. Oh yeah, she had a lot of explaining to do. I was the most confused I had ever been.
"Explain – now."
"Well, when two people have sex, they sometimes create a baby, Jacob, and –"
"Stop it, Bella," I said with a groan as I stared at her with my arms across my chest. "I know exactly where babies come from and how they are fucking conceived. Who the fuck is the daddy and how are you a damn bloodsucker?"
I honestly didn't even think I could have so much anger in me, but I did.
"Jake, Edward and I had sex the night of Alice's birthday party for me. That was the present I had wanted from Edward, and he "gave" it to me before we went to the party."
"Vampires can't have babies… they are already dead."
"Apparently, female vampires can't have babies. The men can get a human female pregnant but Edward and I had no idea that was even possible. She paused, looking over at me, and then around her. "I would have died if my two friends, Angela and Ben, hadn't helped me out."
"Angela Weber and Ben Cheney – is that who you're talking about?" I asked, watching with interest as I saw the shocked expression on her face. "Oh, Charlie used to mention them, too, when you disappeared."
Bella nodded her head as she leaned against a sturdy tree. "Well, I was really going to need help while being pregnant. It was a pretty painful pregnancy. And then when it was time for the delivery – well, my baby couldn't get out without biting through my stomach. I was really grateful they were there."
"Bella," I gasped. She was still my best friend and I didn't like the thought of anyone hurting her even if was a child.
"One of my good friends, Tanya Denali, and her family helped me out, Jake. She helped me through my transformation. If she hadn't, I wouldn't be standing her right now," Bella explained to me and I nodded, listening to everything that she was saying to me.
"What's your child's name?"
"Mom, what are you doing?"
A young girl, with the same golden eyes, interrupted us.
"Jacob, I'd like you to meet my daughter, Renesmee Cullen."
"Mom, is this 'the Jacob Black' I have heard so many good things about?"
I raised an eyebrow. "You've talked about me?"
"Jacob, how could I not? You were my best friend."
"Were?" I asked as I looked at her with a raised eyebrow, shifiting my eyes between Renesmee and Bella.
"Jacob, you're a werewolf, and-"
"Does it really matter, Mom?" Renesmee grinned as she looked at me. "It's obvious that you still mean something to him."
Oh yeah, this was definitely Bella's daughter. With her personality resembling how Bella's used to be and the identical features, minus the red hair, there was no way that anyone could deny that relationship.
"Honey, vampires and werewolves don't really get along," Bella said with a shake of her head. "I never would have thought you'd be a wolf, though, Jacob. I mean, I remember that story you told me, but I didn't really think anything of it."
"Enough with the chit chat," Renesmee said with a beaming smile as she glanced over at me. "You've got to tell us what you've been up to. From what I hear, don't you live in La Push?"
Bella rolled her eyes. "Nessie-"
"It's okay, Bella," I said with a sigh, slightly shocked at how comfortable I felt around these two, especially with them being vampires. "I don't mind at all."
"See, Mom. You need to stop being so paranoid all the time."
I laughed a bit as I looked at the two of them before looking around past the trees. "I am looking for this girl. I imprinted on her."
"Imprint, what's that?" Renesmee asked with a curious look on her face.
I chuckled. "Well, it's not like love at first sight, really. It's more like… gravity moves. When you see her, suddenly it's not the earth holding you here anymore. She does. And nothing matters more than her."
"So, who is she?" Bella asked, placing her hand on her daughter's shoulder to hush her.
"I don't know, but she's a vampire with golden eyes."
Oh boy, I was so nervous. It had been a few days since Alice had helped me set up everything for the surprise I wanted to give Nessie. Today was our birthday party that our parents were throwing us. Renesmee and I had been enjoying this since she, my best friend, was two and I was one. It amazed me, to be honest, and I couldn't have asked for a better friend. Even though I wanted to be more than just a friend to Nessie, I needed that friendship more than anything. But, hopefully, after today it would be more.
"Landon, sweetheart," my mother said softly as she came up in front of me, helping me with my tie since I was never good at these type of things. "Don't be so nervous. Everything's going to work out perfectly. You'll see…"
"No, don't worry. The party will start soon and you need to get going. After all, this is what you have been working for, isn't it, baby?"
I gave my mother a sheepish smile and nodded my head. As I let my mom help me get ready, I thought about how grateful I was to have a mother like Angela Cheney. I wouldn't trade her in for anything because she was always there for me. Both of my parents were pretty cool. That helped a lot since there weren't many people I could be close to. But now that was changing. Now I could include the Cullen family. I was finding that they were actually nice people, and I was starting to really like them!
"Yes, Mom, it is definitely what I want. I want to be with Renesmee more than anything," I explain to her with a shy smile on my face. "I am just so nervous that she's not going to want this."
My mother smiled at me, fixing the collar of my shirt, then she turned me to face the mirror. "Honey, she would be crazy not to want you. Now, do you have everything ready?"
I nodded at my mom. "Yes, Mom. I just hope in a few hours I won't lose my mind."
