"Will you stop moping around, Edward?" I grumbled, as he walked along the pavement of our driveway back and forth, and I shook my head.
"How can I? Bella's majorly pissed at the two of us. I don't know what to do and Renesmee…"
"Yeah, I cannot believe that I have a niece, and she's the spitting image of the two of you, Edward," I told him with a sheepish smile and watched him finally stop pacing back and forth.
"Well, you better believe it, Aunt Alice… because I'm real, and I'm not going anywhere."
I looked up and saw my niece standing in front of me, with Emmett, Rose, Bella, and that boy, Landon, she had been hanging with. I wanted to smile at her but I didn't know what to do or say. I watched her look at Edward, and I felt a little unnerved by the determined look on her face.
I was about to continue when I saw Jasper, Carlisle, and Esme come out the front door, looking in my mother's and my direction. I honestly wasn't expecting to see them or even be surrounded by everyone. The only people missing were Angela and Ben, who were the best godparents that anyone could ever ask for. All I knew is that I had something to say to my father, and even knowing that my whole family was there wasn't going to stop me.
"Renesmee… or would you prefer it if I called you Nessie instead?"
As I heard the words leave his lips asking me what he should call me, I frowned. The only people that called me Nessie were my true family, and honestly, I just didn't consider him to be that.
"No, you left my mom when she was pregnant. You don't get the privilege of calling me Nessie. The only people that get to do that are my mother, Angela, and Ben, especially since I –"
"Nessie, stop it right there!"
I turned my head and looked at my mother, and I knew that look she had on her face. She was upset with me, but how did she expect me to be – all cheery because I was facing my father? Um, no, I don't think so. I was so upset with this man, Edward Cullen, for abandoning my mom in the woods where anyone could have hurt her.
"What, Mom? It's the truth. He left you in the woods. He could have had the decency to walk you home before he left. I mean, really… who does that? Wait, I know who does," I said, as I turned to face Edward, and I glared at him with anger. "You did - and I will never forgive you for what you did to my mother."
"I'm sorry. I know what I did was wrong but –"
"Don't even try to apologize to me. You should be apologizing to my mother. She's the one that you hurt."
"Renesmee Carlie Cullen, stop it right there, or so help me God…"
I saw the shocked looks on everyone's faces, except for Landon's. I guessed they were surprised because my mother had given me my father's last name, and I gave her a sympathetic look before I turned to face him. I needed to be a bigger person and I realized that I shouldn't be acting like a child. It wasn't doing anyone, especially my mother, my father, or me, any justice. I was a very mature, young woman, as my Aunt Angela would say, and I thought that maybe that this might give my mother the courage to talk to my father.
"Look, I'm not trying to be a cold bitch or anything, but the way you left – you could have done a better job." I then looked at Alice with a shake of my head, and I crossed my arms over my chest. "And the least you could have done was to e-mail my mother. You both have no idea the hell she went through, especially being pregnant with me."
Alice looked at my mother and she frowned, looking down. "Bella, I'm sorry."
I looked at my mother, who just shrugged, and I wondered if this was too much for her. I looked at my Aunt Rosalie and my Uncle Emmett, who was actually being serious now.
"Do you two think you can take my mother home? I kind of want to talk to everyone here," I stated, as I looked at them, hoping that they wouldn't mind at all. Then I took a Landon's hand in mine.
When Rosalie nodded her head, my mother kissed me on top of my head gently, and I felt Landon give my hand a squeeze. Without Landon here, I knew without a doubt I would be a mess.
"Do you want me to go?" Landon asked, as he turned to me and gave me that charming smile I fell in love with everyday.
"No… Landon, I need you here. You can't go."
Landon nodded and looked around. My father was standing in front of me and Alice was standing next to him. Jasper was holding Alice's hand, trying to calm her down, and my grandparents were standing on the front porch, watching us from there.
Landon took a breath and spoke up. "I'm sorry. I'm Landon Cheney. I'm Angela and Ben's son."
"Really? And how old are you?" Carlisle asked with interest as he approached us, looking right at the two of us.
"I'm a year younger than Renesmee here," Landon said with a grin, as he glanced to me, wrapping his arm around my shoulders. "You know… she'll officially be eighteen in about a month."
"Let's take this conversation to a more comfortable setting," Carlisle said as he led us inside. I figured that he had questions – lots and lots of questions. I would answer anything that I had an answer to, but if he wasn't satisfied with that, I was sure he could track down my lovely mother. I couldn't help but wonder how that conversation would go because I knew that Carlisle and Esme loved my mother like she was their own.
My daughter had a temper but I never ever thought that she was ever going to react like that! If I stayed there any longer with her, while Edward stared me down, I didn't know what I would do or even say. I hadn't been that close to having a conversation with Edward since he and Alice sat on either side of me in class.
"Bella, are you all right?" Rosalie asked me as she pulled into the driveway of the house where Angela, Ben, Landon, Renesmee, and I lived. She turned off the car and turned her head to look at me in the backseat.
I was grateful that Angela and Ben weren't home because this was a very uncomfortable situation. I didn't want them to worry, and Angela tended to worry more than she needed to.
"Yeah, I was just surprised at Renesmee. I just didn't think she was going to react like that."
Emmett grinned as he turned his head to look over at me. "She's just like you, Bella. She's so full of fire. Just think – if I am not around when you need a bodyguard, you've got your daughter."
I shook my head and laughed as the three of us got out of the car and walked up the steps into the house. Since we had all been lazy because we had been getting our school things together, there were still a few boxes around. I knew that if I wanted, I could get Emmett to help me while I showed Rosalie some things that I thought would interest her.
"Hey… Emmett, do you think you can do me a huge favor by taking a few boxes into my room while I show Renesmee's pictures to your wonderful wife?" I asked with a grin on my face.
Emmett just laughed and nodded his head. "Which one's your room?"
"It's the last door on the right and Nessie's is right next to mine," I told him with a smile. Then I pulled Rosalie to the couch, grabbing a box before sitting us down.
"What's that?" she asked me when I began taking the duck tape off the box.
"Albums, lots and lots of pictures of all of us, and there's a few tapes in there. Renesmee loves being in pictures, so she's in the majority of them. Want to start from the beginning? Did you know that Angela and Tanya recorded me from giving birth to my transformation?"
"They both thought we would see you guys again," I said with a nervous smile as I glanced at her, and I watched her pull out and hand me the one labeled 'Renesmee's Birth'. "I'd like to see this one first," she said with an eager look in her eyes.
