Part 1. Takes place a little over a year after Breaking Dawn. Semi-AU in the sense that I have decided that Renesmee's rapid aging has slow down to that of a normal human rate only because it can be confusing to configure out how old she would be before the 7 year limit when she reaches adulthood. / Part 2. It can be so easy to forget that we are all a heartbeat away from death.Rated: Fiction T - English - Family/Fantasy - Bella & Charlie S. - Chapters: 13 - Words: 16,555 - Favs: 3 - Published: 08-28-12 - Status: Complete - id: 8474363

I'd never given much thought to how I would die. But dying in the place of someone I loved seemed like a good way to go.
I had done my living. My human form had died the way I wanted, with the people I love. Now I could only think those words yet again only this time I was on the opposite end, a side I didn't want to be. I now understood how hard it must have been for the love of my life and my best friend to watch me as I took my last human breath.
With over a year of peace and nothing tense to worry about, our short bliss of forever seemed to be halted as I was once again faced with the eyes of death.
The wolves could not be involved, at least not all of them. One of Jake's pack brothers plus himself as well as Sam and his were all back at the Cullen house to protect Renesmee and to make sure she stayed out of the fight. I had made it an order and Jacob obeyed. I rolled my eyes. That dog would do anything for Renesmee even if it meant taking orders from me.
Edward stood by my side. He was not about to let me face this alone or face this out of his sight. In our short time and since our time with our face off with the Volturi I had proven to be a very unique newborn. Everything I did constantly surprised him but despite that he wasn't willing to let me surprise him and take a chance by taking down our enemy on my own.
We were on Quileute lands now but Sam had made an exception for this particular reason. How many times had I stood here outside near the red barn I had come to adore over the years? Our enemy faced us with all too familiar red eyes. There was one of him and two of us, plus two wolves, one with us, the other running patrol. An easy win. She would not get what she came for.
She would not get Charlie. She would not get Sue.
