All right! I am pumped! I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove kids! Yeah, I don't know why–I think I still remember when I was little, so I guess that's why. And they're cute. Very cute. I understand Rosalie's point of view, really.
Speaking of which, we shall broaden our POV horizon and make sure to include our little Blondie in this story, as well as the clumsy, but very lucky Bella Swan.
WARNING: If you have not read What I've Done, you will not understand the story! So, if you haven't already, go back and read it! It's by me! It may take you a while, but (hopefully) it shall be worth it! You have been WARNED!!!!!!!!
Jasper and Alice held each other tightly, feeling as if they were one. From a distance, Bella, Rosalie, Edward, and Emmett saw them and smiled to themselves. Out of sheer curiousity, they all sent Bella to go see what was going on.
Cautiously, Bella tapped Alice on the shoulder. "What's going on?" she asked, thinking to herself that she really shouldn't have been the person to do this.
"Alice is pregnant," Jasper explained happily.
"And we're getting married," Alice added.
Bella tripped on her way to telling the others. No, Bella really wasn't the person to do this at all.
It had been three days since that fateful day, the day where Alice and Jasper could finally be happy. But Maria, who'd been the prevention of them being happy in the first place, was not dead. She had gotten away; vanished without a trace, and that made both of them scared.
All six of them–Alice, Jasper, Bella, Edward, Rosalie, and Emmett–had been questioned by the police for two days straight, and now, on the third day, they could finally have some time to process all of this.
Jasper had been kidnapped by his adoptive mother, Maria, and had been taken to the forest outside Dr. Carlisle Cullen's house. Maria had been trying to lure in Alice, who, or so Maria claimed, could see the future, and it was Maria's job to find people such as Alice and take them to the Government to have tests taken on them.
Maria was just about to take Alice before Edward came in and helped defeat her, although he only got one hit before Jasper showed up with a pole and knocked her out. That was when Rosalie and Emmett showed up with Bella. But Maria had gotten away, somehow.
The past few days had been very eventful–too eventful. Jasper and his two adoptive siblings, Charlotte and Peter, now had nowhere to live, and Alice was sure she would be kicked out soon as well. Charlotte and Peter had started the silent treatment with Jasper, and it seemed that Alice's sister, Cynthia, was in on it, saying nothing, but shooting her sympathetic looks.
Carlisle had offered the three teenagers his hospitality, and, though all three were hesitant and really didn't want to live with a doctor, they really had nowhere else to go, and so they had to accept.
Jasper discovered that living with Carlisle and Edward wasn't that bad. It was a big house, with plenty to do, and it had a lot of privacy as well as a comforting essence about it. Jasper found himself heading to a huge library, where he also usually found Edward. But Edward almost never spent time in the library; he took a book he thought he'd like and went to another room. This gave Jasper alone time with all the books he could ever want.
Jasper had never read that many books. He'd read all the books Maria had supplied–two bookshelves full of them–but they'd never seemed enough to him. So it was a relief to finally have all the books he could ever ask for at his fingertips.
Meanwhile, Alice had to go through early pregnancy, with a lot of throwing up and saltine crackers. She pretended that nothing was going on at all, and carried herself with the kind of casual air that made people almost believe it, but she knew that there was. But she didn't find it a bad thing–she found it rather exciting, actually, though she knew it would be hard when the baby came.
It was raining, and she found herself sitting by the window pane, watching the dots of water and wondering what was in store for her. Would it be a boy? A girl? Twins? Twins would be a nightmare, Alice thought to herself, amused. How would she and Jasper be able to handle that? Even with all of her friends to help her, it would be hard. Bella, Rosalie, Edward, and Emmett still had school to go to, after all. They couldn't just abandon that and help them whenever they wished. Carlisle could baby-sit…
Soon, Alice would be going in for an ultrasound. It would be too early to determine whether it was a boy or a girl, but they'd be able to determine whether or not the babies were healthy and if they were twins. Alice shuddered at the thought of twins, for, though there'd be double the cuteness, there would also be double the work, and Alice was only seventeen.
Several blocks away, Rosalie was lying on her bed, looking up at the ceiling at a crack that had been there for as long as she could remember. She could hear the pitter-patter of rainfall, but she could not see it, and she could only use the sound as a peaceful lullaby, though it was bright out and she could not sleep.
Her sister, Jenni, walked in and hovered in the doorway, her beautiful eyes shrouded by her blonde bangs. "Rose," she said in her gentle, smooth voice that made her dark appeal almost unbelievable. "I thought I was the quiet one." Rosalie smiled to herself with the humor of the joke, but she did not laugh and she did not say anything to her sister.
Jenni sighed and sat down on the bed beside her. "What's wrong?" she asked. "Do you still have that intuition?"
"No," Rosalie replied quietly, still looking at the ceiling. "That's over now. The horrible things have already happened."
"But?" Jenni inquired.
Rosalie turned to Jenni. "Promise you won't tell?"
Jenni nodded, not eagerly, but calmly. Jenni was easy to trust for reasons even Rosalie didn't know. She was quiet, and she hardly ever betrayed a secret. But, because she was quiet, nobody had ever really told her a secret before. Yet Rosalie knew that Jenni wouldn't be telling anybody anything unless she felt they needed to know.
Bella wondered to herself, thinking. It was so exciting, being with Edward Mason. He was stunning, almost inhuman. Then again, so were Jasper and Emmett, as well as Rosalie and Alice. It was all very intimidating, being in a town filled with so many beautiful people, yet managing to be accepted all the same. She didn't understand it, but she didn't have to. She had Edward. That was all that mattered.
As long as she had Edward, Alice had Jasper, and Rosalie had Emmett, that was all that mattered.
Okay, that's the only chapter in third person, because I like to be a part of my stories, feel like I actually am the character. You may have noticed that I did not mention Emmett unless he was part of the group of six. This is because Emmett is not really important at this time. He's got no story, so until he does, he will simply be a side character for the time being.
For those of you who read What I've Done, and you should have if you're reading this, then you know that it is a request tale. I want to get the requests down early in the game so that when the baby (or babies; I've already decided, though) come, I have names ready to give them. So quick; quickly now! I think I have a couple girls' names in mind, but when it comes to boys, I am at a blank! You can request girls' names anyway, and if I think they're better than what I have, I will let you know and I will use them! Quick! Quickly now! There is no time to waste!
And now, my new motto from What I've Done that shall be continued on to the sequel. Review! Request! Pie!
