Fly Away Home
I DO NOT IN ANY WAY OWN TWILIGHT!
Its cold and dark out as i'm walking through the lush green forest outside La Push Wa. I slowly make my way down the muddy river bed to the creek at the bottom. My toes settle in the cool water and send a shiver up my spine.
Suddenly I'm aware of many different things at once. I'm no longer alone. I can sence another heart beat. This one stronger and faster then any human or vampire I know. I can smell his sent even though I cant see him. I can feel his body heat like he was standing right next to me.
I close my eyes and take a deep breath. His scent warms me to the core. Snaping branches across the creek from me cause me to jump a little and open my eyes. I can barely make out his tall muscular form. So familiar to me yet foreign and freightening at the same time.
I crouch down next to the water and he steps into the light. His darkly tanned body shines in the moonlight. Hes wareing cut off sweats. His legs, feet and chest are bare. Over his heart he wares a jaged scar. His long brown hair touches his shoulders.
His face is painfully handsome. Skin tanned from the sun and his heritage. His eyes are a deep brown. His lips are pulled back in that arrogant smirk that I love so much.
My breath hitches in my chest as he moves toward me through the water. He lowers himself to his knees. I feel myself shaking. He raises his hand and touches my face. It should feel cold and wet from the water but instead his touch is like fire.
I stare into his eyes. Pleading for something anything to make the burning inside of me stop. He leans in as if hes going to kiss me. Gentle lips touch mine, I sigh and try to lean into him, but he pulls back and smiles.
"Nessie.' my name on his lips is like torture....
I wake up gasping as always. My dreams have been getting more realistic by the day. I have a feeling it has something to do with 18th birthday.
Growling I roll over on my side grabing the pillow and holding it to my chest. The dreams were confusing me. I was starting to have feelings that are more then friendship toward my best friend Jacob Black.
I didnt like it. It made me feel out of control sometimes and I hated it. I also didnt like that Jacob was starting to pick up on it. He was more stand offish and he wasnt the same around me.
Well tonight would be different I could feel it. Something important was going to happen on my 18th birthday. I had a strong feeling it would be something to do with Jacob.
A knock at my door made me jump.
"Ness honey are you up?" My aunt Alices voice called.
"Yes Aunt Alice." I called back.
"Ok...Hurry up though ok honey? We have a long day and I want to get started before it gets too late." She called back in her sing song voice.
I smiled leave it to Aunt Alice to have something planned for the early morning.
"Ok." I replied.
I listened to her feet retreating down the stairs. Groaning as I sat up.
My room use to be my dads room before he married my mom and grandpa Cullen built the cottage out back. I had a room there as well but I prefered to be here in the big house.
My room looked out over the little creek that ran through our back yard. The sun was just coming up so I assumed it was around 6 am or so.
I was the only one that slept in my house which was kind of weird. Seeing as I'm half human, my parents and the rest of my fathers side of the family are Vampires.
I snorted. I'm a half vampire. My parents are full vampires and my best friend is a werewolf. Great choice Ness.
Sighing I made my way to the shower. I lingered there as the hot water felt good against my body. Jacob crossed my mind again as he often did. I frowned trying to block him from my mind. My dad was close by and since he would hear my thoughts it might not be a good idea to think about Jake that way.
After showering I threw on a pair of shorts and a t-shirt and made my way down stairs.
As expected the whole family was there for my birthday breakfest.
Aunt Alice had out done her self again. There was a 'Happy 18th Nessie" banner and the long table was filled with all my favorate breakfest dishes. Lots of fruit of course.
Everyone was there. Grandma and Grandpa Cullen, Mom and Dad, Aunt Rose and Uncle Emmit, Aunt Alice and Uncle Jasper, Grandpa Swan and Sue Clearwater who had just recently started seeing eachother seriously, along with Sue's children Seth and Leah who were also part of the La Push werewolf pack, and my god father Billy Black.
Everyone was there except for one person. Jacob. Surely he wouldnt ditch my breakfest? He'd been to everyone I could remember. Something was wrong.
"Where's Jacob?" I demanded.
They all looked suddenly uncomfortable. Not a good sign. "Mom? Dad? Where's Jake?" I asked suddenly on the verge of tears.
Billy, Seth and Leah were frowning and looking particularly uncomfortable.
"What the hell is going on? Where Jake?" I demanded almost shouting.
My dad steped forward. "Ness honey Jacob had to run patrol this morning he'll be along this afternoon."
I could tell he was lieing to me. I wanted to know why.
"Your lieing." I accused. I looked to Aunt Alice. "Auntie where is Jacob? Tell me the truth? Is he really on patrol?"
She looked around for help. Glaring at my dad for keeping silent. I suddenly felt calmer. Damn it. Uncle Jasper.
"Please dont try to alter my mood Uncle Jasper." I snaped. He frowned at me.
"Renesmee thats enough." My mothers stern voice said.
I glared at her. "Why wont any of you answer my question?" I demanded. I knew I was acting like a spoild child but it was either that or totally freak out. He'd never missed a birthday or any other important occasion.
"Please just tell me." I begged really starting to panic.
It was grandpa Swan who came to my aid.
"He's gone Ness." He said simply.
I stared at him like he's grown a third head. "Gone?" I repeted dumbly.
"Gone how? Like for the morning, the day what?" I demanded trying hard to hold on to what little resolve I had left.
"Ness honey....We dont know..He took off late last night." Grandpa Swan said. His hands on my arms.
"No-no..." I studdared. "He wouldnt leave me...He cant." I whispered.
Suddenly mom was right beside me. "Oh honey..shh its alright." She said pulling me into a hug.
No..It cant be! He promised! He promised he would never leave me!
I looked at Seth over my mothers shoulder. I pleaded with him through my eyes. When he didnt look me in the eye I knew it was true.
I pughed my mom away gently. I had to get out of here. The walls were closing in on me.
"I-I'm sorry I need a moment." I studdard and ran for the sliding door.
Once outside I let the tears come. I ran as fast as I could, for as long as I could before my legs gave out.
I landed on my knees in a soft pile of mossy ground. My face in my hands I cryed. Hard.
How could he? How could he break such a promise to me.
Then it dawned on me. Last night. He was saying good bye.
I gigled as we walked up to the back door of my house. "Thanks for going hunting with me Jake." I said.
He grinned at me. "Of course kid anytime." He said playfully punching my shoulder.
"Wow 18 tomorrow....I cant beleive it..." I said staring past him at the night sky.
"Me either." He whispered. Something in his voice caught my attention.
"You ok Jake?" I asked eyeing him curiously.
He heaved a heavy sigh before looking at me.
"Yeah i'm ok. I just cant beleive how grown up you've gotten. Pretty soon you'll be dating." He said.
I shot him a discusted look. "yeah that would happen. I dont think I would be happy with a human." I said looking back at the sky.
I felt his eyes on me again. "Oh yeah? Whys that?" He asked.
I shrugged. "Because I would never be able to have him around...Besides...Who needs a boyfriend when you have a best friend like you." I said nudging him with my elbow.
He frowned at me. "What?" I asked confused by his change of mood.
"You should find someone Ness...I might not always be around." He said.
My heart did a flip flop. "Dont be silly Jake. We're attached. Who knows we might even end up together." I joked.
He gave a forced laugh. "Yeah maybe..."
We were silent for a few minuets.
I felt him look at me again. "What? Do I have something on my face?" I asked rubbing my cheek.
He laughed. A true Jacob laugh. I smiled at him.
"No...I just cant get over how beautiful you've gotten." He said touching the side of my face with his hand.
His had was so hot. Like he'd just taken it out of the fire. I leaned in to it. My heart fluttering.
I reached up and enter twined our fingers and kissed the palm of his hand.
"I love you my Nessie." He whispered. I could tell there were emotions warring with in him. And I felt that familiar pull toward him. Like a hook behind my belly button pulling me toward him.
"I love you two my Jacob." I replyed.
Then he did what I didnt expect him to do. He leaned in and gently pressed his lips to mine. My heart jumped into my throat. His lips were warm and gentle and inviting. Just as I kissed him back he pulled away.
"Happy 18th birthday Ness." He whispered against my lips.
Momentarily struck dumb I did what any other girl would do. I kissed him again.
I had no idea what I was doing but I must be doing something right because he growled deep his chest and pulled me against him bringing my arms up around his neck then wraping his arms around my waist.
My heart fluttered as he kissed me. His mouth hard, demanding, claiming. All too soon is was over. He set me down on my feet and held me at arms length. I was panting.
"You had better get to bed Ness." He said. I smiled at him.
"See you at breakfest?" I asked.
He nodded. "Promise?" I asked?
He nodded and kissed my forehead. "Get to bed." He said and then he was gone.
I slowly made my way to my room. Extremly light headed.
He didnt promise. Damn it. I should've known! He didnt promise he would be there in the morning. I could've stoped him.
"No you couldnt." A deep voice came from behind me startling me out of my caotic thoughts.
"What?" I asked. Seth stood behind me, his hands thrust in his pockets and uneasy look on his face.
"He left right after that Ness. He closed his mind to all of us." Seth said.
"Why?" I whispered. I felt the tears streaming down my face.
"I'm sorry Ness....I dont...I dont know. He dosnt confide in me anymore. But I swear Ness. I swear if I would've known I would've stoped him." He said suddenly pleading with me.
"No. Its not your fault Seth. There has to be a reason he left. He just wouldnt up and leave. Especially after last night." I said.
I saged to the ground Seth was right beside me. Suddenly over whemled I leaned into him.
"Why did he leave Seth? What did I do so wrong that he would've left." I sobbed.
He took my chin in his hand forcing me to look at him. "You did nothing wrong Ness." He said.
He squeezed my chin forcing me to look at him. "I mean it Ness. This is on Jake not you."
I nodded and he pulled me back into a hug.
"What am I going to do Seth? Hes everything to me....I'm nothing with out him."
