Hi!! Sorry for the delay, I was caught up in other stories!! So this is just something I wanted to do, and this will be the last chapter, because this is all I wanted to do. It's really short, as you know. Please review, and be nice please!!
Hugging me to his hard chest, Edward seemed sad as always to go away. "I'll be back soon," he promised, breathing in my ear. Alice skipped up next to him, and waited impatiently as he held me for a bit longer. He finally let me go, kissing my cheek swiftly and backing away. He smiled wistfully. "I'll be back soon," he said, and then looked over to Emmett, who was lounging on the couch, perfectly at ease. "Take care, Emmett," he said quickly, and then swept out the door with Alice, already gone.
I sighed, and turned around I trudged into the living room to sit on the couch with Emmett. He grinned at me, his white smile momentarily blinding me. "Hey Bella," he said easily. It was hard to not catch his happiness-it sort of reminded me of Jake. I grinned back at him. "Hey Emmett. So you're stuck with me, huh?" He smirked at me.
"Guess I am," he mused, flipping on the TV and putting up his feet on the coffee table. "By the way," he added, shooting a fleeting grin at me. "I was just joking about what I was visioning today. I seriously didn't mean to offend you; it's just that Edward's really fun to mess with-"
"I know," I cut him off hurriedly, not wanting him to take it the wrong way. "He does get really over protective like that. You should have seen when he took me out one night, he was so mad at the one waiter…" I trailed off, and Emmett got the idea. He chuckled darkly. "Yeah, I can imagine that, I get that all the time with Rose. You should have seen one of the people in the hotel we were in on one of our honeymoons. I can't read his thoughts, but Jesus!" He laughed, and I laughed along with him. "Knowing Rose, you get the point."
He sat in silence for a moment, then turned to face me. "So what do you want to do, partner?" he asked me agreeably. "I'm game for anything. After all, he never leaves you alone, so I never get time to talk to my future sister-in-law." He grinned, and I rolled my eyes at him. "Don't mention marriage to me," I snorted, shooting Edward a mental dark look. Emmett tilted his head to the side, genuinely confused.
"Edward did mention that you had an issue with it," he murmured, looking away for a moment. "Just curious, but why?" He hesitated, not sure if he should have asked. I shrugged, showing him that I didn't care if he asked. I felt oddly comfortable around Emmett.
"I'm…just hesitant. I'm only 18, after all, and Charlie!" I stopped, thinking it over. "And when," I said, lowering my voice slightly, "when I'm a vampire, and I leave Charlie and Renée, I want to leave them with the best resolution I can. And you probably know this, but it was the early marriage that killed their relationship. I mean," I hurriedly corrected myself, "I will always stay with Edward forever, but obviously Charlie and Renée won't approve." Emmett nodded seriously, understanding.
"I bet," he murmured. "It will be hard on all ends of the whole vampire deal, I guess. You haven't told Charlie yet, I guess?" I nodded grimly. He pursed his lips.
"That'll be hard. You and Edward will obviously get married one way or another," he amended, grinning mischievously, "but if Charlie doesn't approve then it will be hard on you, seeing as you'll have to leave him soon anyways." I looked at him. How much he understood! It was a serious side of Emmett I had never seen before, and though I like him joking and playful, this was a nice change.
"Yeah," I agreed slowly, wondering how much I could spill on Emmett. "And…I'm not sure about after," I admitted. Emmett let out a breath, looking out the window. "Yeah, that'll be tough. On you and Edward both. I can tell it's really cut him up to make the choice to change you, but it makes sense, if you really do want to be together forever." I looked at his marble face, and was glad that Edward shared so much with his brother so I didn't have to explain it all.
"Well, that too," I consented, slowly working my way around words, "That is obviously a problem for him, but I really don't care about being a vampire. I mean, I will want blood, and that would bother me, but that's not nearly as much as I worry about…" I sighed. "I might not be myself. What if I don't love him anymore?" I heard the fear catch in my voice, and I swallowed a lump in my throat, trying to go on. "I might not want him the way I do now. I'll be different, but how ill it affects me?" I shook my head, looking down at the pillow in my lap.
Emmett considered this for a minute. "You…will be different, but not as much as you think," he finally said. "I've seen how you look at him. I don't think something that strong can be broken by your vampire instincts. And you will want lots of blood, but it will pass as you mature." He stopped, and watched me carefully, making sure he wasn't upsetting me. Oddly, I was a bit comforted.
"Your right," I muttered, and I smiled a bit. He beamed at me. "Feel better?" he teased me lightly. I threw the pillow at him, and laughed as he pretended to fall over from the impact. I giggled as he sat back up, his brown hair messed up.
"So what do you want to do?" he asked me again. I considered for a minute, and he spoke up. "Do you want to go on my back and we can see how long it takes to run around the woods in your backyard?" He grinned, his boyish excitement rising. I laughed, feeling glad to get out of the feeling of being held hostage. Leave it to Emmett.
We went outside, Emmett keeping up with my slow human pace. We reached his driveway, and I climbed up on his back, him giving me a helping hand up. "Ready?" he asked me, grinning at me. I locked my arms around his neck, and he took hold of my legs, locking them around his torso. "Yep," I said, I remembered to shut my eyes as he took off at lighting speed, laughing his booming laugh and my hair streaming out behind me.
So! Kind of boring but I hope you liked it!! Just something fluffy, I didn't expect anything out of it. Please review (nicely!!)
