Now remember this is after Breaking Dawn. In the fifth book, Stephenie Meyer decided to go backwards and redo Twilight from Edward's POV. The following story is what i would've liked to see if she continued :)
I walked into the kitchen of the small cottage that had been given to me and my love, Bella, by my family. They were kind enough to give us a space of our own. Well, we shared it with our daughter, Renesmee, too, but she was never a bother. She was already very grown up, more than i ever thought she would be. Renesmee (if she grew normally) she would be about 3 years old, but because she was concieved when Bella was still human, she's growing abnormally fast. She looks almost 9 now, and the family has adapted to her already.
Thinking of Renesmee, I asked Bella, "Where's Renesmee?"
"Don't worry, Edward," she replied. "She's with Rosalie and Esme."
"I'm not worried," I grinned and began to stroke her pale cheek.
Ever since Bella had become a vampire, I keep wishing I'd biten her sooner. Bella was able to understand now how I felt all those years during her human days. I must admit, sometimes I miss her tantalizing scent, but if I had the chance, I would never make her human again.
"Jacob called last night," she mentioned.
"What did he want?" I didn't mean to sound angry.
"Something about Renesmee," she frowned.
"And? What did he say?"
"He wanted to introduce his father to Renesmee."
"Absolutely not," I didn't hesitate at all.
"This imprinting thing is getting out of control ... he's practically living at the house now. He can't stand to be away from her."
"That's disgusting." I pushed the vile in my throat back down.
"There's nothing we can do about it." I knew she was right.
"I don't want Jacob around her, now that wolf wants to bring the family? No way."
"I know this is hard for you, Edward. It's hard for me too. After the birth, all I wanted is for Jacob to leave."
"But he won't," I hated the fact that I couldn't do anything to change my daughter's fate ... as of now.
"Hey, he's still part of my family ... theoretically. Everything will be fine."
She wrapped her arms around my neck, holding on tightly. I put my hands around her waist and kissed the top of her head. She pushed her head up and our lips met. Now that Bella was a vampire, I didn't have to resist. I wasn't that raging monster anymore ... well, I still was, but not with Bella. I could be as agressive as I wanted, and it would never matter.
"Do you remember when we met, and you hated me?" she brought up randomly.
"Of course. But I'm trying to forget the 'hated you' part."
"Do you think life was more simple then? That everything was easier then?"
"No, because I didn't have you. And if I hadn't been careless and if I had never saved you from that car accident, we'd never be like this."
She didn't respond for a long time after that. I didn't know if she was thinking or if she didn't want to speak at all. When she finally opened her mouth to speak, she just stood there for a second, before she spit the words out.
"Do you think Mike and Jessica ever got married like we did?"
My first impression was to laugh, if not to do anything else. That was one of the most random questions she'd ever asked me.
"I don't know, Bella." I smiled down at her.
"How is that?" she was almost laughing.
"How is what?"
"That even after I become a vampire, you still dazzle me."
I chuckled quietly, looking deep into her eyes. She smiled up at me, but you could tell she was still waiting for an answer.
"I don't know. But when you were human, you dazzled me.
*A/N*: Hey, it's letmesign172 from the future … Not really. I just added this author's note to this chapter almost two years after a wrote this. Currently, I am nearing the end of After Breaking Dawn2, and I have had so many amazing readers who have trekked through this with me. Luckily for me, said readers are extremely tolerant.
If you decide to continue reading After Breaking Dawn (which will make me die and go to heaven, because if there's one thing I love more than Twilight itself, it's getting feedback for what I'm doing), then I am going to warn you now. You are going to see a ton of inconsistencies.
When I first started writing this, I didn't really care about it. But since then I have grown as a writer and take everything 10x more seriously. If you are patient with me and do not end up throwing stuff at your computer out of pure anger due to how inconsistent I am, then you will get to After Breaking Dawn2. And I guarantee that I was a bit more cooperative in the sequel than I am here. (Believe me, sometimes, when I look back at this story, I frustrate myself).
So here are some things I'm going to get across now (hopefully, I won't bore you to death):
I don't agree with Jacob being alpha of his own pack. It's nothing against him, I just don't like the idea of two separate packs.
No matter how hard I try, I'm oblivious to time and age. I think passing time is the best way to symbolize growth and such – and I use it frequently to build up anticipation – but, apparently, just as Bella is in New Moon, time is like a blank page to me. Don't murder me if I don't correspond the right years together.
No matter what happens, there is still going to be a slight aversion between Edward and Jacob (And between the vampires and the wolves). I think the story was built on that aversion, so I subconsciously sneak it in here and there without meaning to. There mortal enemies anyway, I mean, c'mon, how friendly can they get?
Currently, I am in the middle of working on a different story (not a fanfiction) so I am forever stuck in the human emotion mode. If I say something like "Bella's brown eyes" or "she cried" or some human reaction that I vampire cannot have, I apologize
I hate Mike Newton as much as Edward did in Twilight. So, sorry, Mike, but I'm just going to break your little heart as much as possible.
Alice's visions were basically just an open range at the beginning of this story. Over time, I take more in to account that she was far more limited – I start to clean that up over time.
I will admit it honestly: in After Breaking Dawn I was sloppy, prejudiced, inaccurate, and outspoken. But I'm trying to make up for that in ABD2 – bear with me if I make stupid mistakes; I promise I'm trying harder ^_^ You can send all the hate mail you want to me; I promise not to cry *sniff*
