So, I just made my parents watch Twilight with me, and my mom fell asleep. My step dad thought it was cool though. My mom claims that she was just really tired, and that she was liking it. Whatever.
Alright, here is the very last chapter! Thank you everyone who read this crazy story, and thank you everyone who reviewed, or added this to their alert and favorite lists!
"Stop them!" I heard Edward yell out, and in the next second everything turned into chaos. Carlisle was trying to reason with Kate, but it wasn't until the vampire known as Garrett, flung himself onto her, that she was stopped. Tanya wasn't acting as crazy, but she was just as angry. All the vampires around me were using their freaky powers, and I was just kind of standing there scared and confused. Some how the vampire Zafrina took Tanya and Kate's sight away. That's how we got them to stop.
"Listen to me, Tanya, Kate," Carlisle said. "Vengeance doesn't help her now. Irina wouldn't want you to waste your lives this way. Think about what you're doing. If you attack them, we all die." Crap. He was right. So basically we had to put our lives in these stupid, angry, vampire's hands. They best calm down or I'm gonna rip their heads off. Or, correction, I'll make Jacob do it.
When everything, and everyone finally calmed down, Aro went on acting as if nothing had even happened. He asked to speak to some of the witnesses. As he was speaking, I just couldn't bring myself to pay attention. I know I should have, but I was just too nervous. I just kept waiting for something to happen. For someone to strike.
"You need to calm down. I can't stay calm when I can feel how upset you are," Jake said in my mind. For once, I was pissed off at our mating bond. I forgot that my intense feelings would also be felt by him.
"I'm sorry, I just can't help it. This is taking too long. I need to get out of here. I need to get to Connor, and I need to run."
"Jovie, listen to me. Nothing bad is going to happen. We have to stay here and protect Nessie. We have to do this for Connor. He won't be able to live if something happens to him." I wanted to scream at him. I wouldn't be able to live if something happened to him. I knew he was right though. I would do anything in the world for my son, and if that meant staying here, then I would. If it meant putting my mate and myself in danger, I'd do it.
"I know, you're right. I just wish we could fight and get this all over with."
"Soon. I can feel it."
"So can I."
"Just remember that I love you."
"I love you too." He must have started talking to the rest of his pack, because I couldn't hear him anymore.
"Any news from the boss?" asked Eric. "Leah is talking to him now, but she can't talk to me at the same time."
"Nothing new," I said, with a sigh.
"This is crazy. Can't they just attack and get it over with?" asked Emma.
"I know! I was thinking the same thing."
"Do you think we even have a chance?" she then asked.
"Shut up both of you," said Eric with a small growl. "I don't want to hear that negative talk. We will survive. We always have."
"We've never had to fight vampires in Wolf Lake, Eric," said Emma.
"True, but we've always had to fight to survive. And that's what we've always done, survive. Nothing will change that now. We will get through this."
"I wish I had you're confidence," I said.
"Let us counsel," I then heard Caius say. It brought my attention back to the vampires. Aro turned his back to us again and they all joined hands to form a triangle. This was it. This was going to decided if we fought, or if they let us go. Yeah, duh, we were going to have to fight. I could hear Bella telling Renesmee that she loved her. Edward then took the child out of Bella's hands. I was surprised when Bella then turned to me and Jake.
"Wait until they're totally distracted, then run with her. Go back to Billy's and get Connor. Get as far from this place as you possibly can. When you've gone as far as you can on foot, she has what you need to get you in the air." Holy crap. What the hell was she talking about? She had some crazy plan that she hadn't told any of us. Not even Edward.
"This is what you kept from me?" Edward asked her.
"From Aro," Bella said. Jake was growling, and he seemed to be ok with the plan. If he was ok with it, so was I.
"Chang of plans," I said to Emma and Eric.
"What?" asked Eric.
"What is it? What are we going to do now?" asked Emma.
"I have no idea. Just be ready to cover us."
"Got it," they both said.
When Edward was done with his goodbyes with his daughter, he placed her on top of Jake's back.
"You two are the only ones we could ever trust her with," Bella said to us. "Connor loves her, I understand that. I know you'd do anything to keep your son's imprint safe. I know you can protect her, Jacob." Jake whined and dipped his head to butt it against her shoulder. "I know. I love you too, Jake. You'll always be my best man." For once I didn't feel any jealousy from her words. She then turned to me and stroked her hand over my head. "I know we didn't really get to know each other that well, but I still think of you as family. Please take care of her." I nodded my head. Boy, I wish I could talk to her.
Jake looked ready to cry, hell, I was crying. Edward leaned his head against the same shoulder where he'd placed Renesmee.
"Goodbye, Jacob, my brother…my friend. Goodbye, Jovie."
"Is there no hope, then?" Carlisle whispered. There wasn't any fear present in his voice. Only determination and acceptance.
"There is absolutely hope," Bella said. "I only know my own fate." All that could be heard were goodbyes, and I love yous.
"Get ready," Bella then whispered. "It's starting."
I held my breath, waiting for the worst. Waiting for the freaky vampire powers to hit us. Waiting for the right second to run. To my surprise, nothing was happening. I wasn't the only one surprised. Everyone was. Bella's power was protecting us better than we thought.
"Well done, Bella!" I heard the vampire Benjamin cheer. Bella was smiling. We might just have a chance with this.
"I'm going to have to concentrate," Bella told us. Then the rest of our team went into action. They were all calling out who got to fight with who. Kate wanted Jane. Tanya wanted Caius. Edward was going for Demetri.
"Before we vote, Aro said. "Let me remind you whatever the council's decision, there need be no violence here." Yeah right. No violence my ass. If we were going to go down, we sure as hell were going to go down fighting. Kicking and screaming even. Then they stared voicing their opinions. Caius wanted Nessie dead, no surprise. Marcus wanted to wait and see until she was older.
"I must make the deciding vote it seems," Aro mused.
"Yes!" Edward then hissed, and I moved my eyes to him. "Aro?" he then called out.
"Yes, Edward? You have something further…?"
"Perhaps. First, if I could clarify one point?"
"Certainly." What the hell had gotten into Edward's head. Was he giving us the chance to run now? I didn't think there was anything left to be said. They stared talking about the child. How rare she was. How unique she was. Edward then made a point to say that she wasn't one of a kind. I was really wondering how many half vampire, half human babies were running around the world, because I sure as hell have never seen one other than Nessie.
"Why don't you join us, Alice?" Edward then called loudly. Alice? I wasn't the only one confused. All you could hear was her name being said, over and over. I then saw her coming out of the woods. Jasper right behind her. They weren't alone. Three people I had never seen A tall woman, another woman but much smaller, and then a man. A man who was incredibly beautiful. Not only beautiful, but he had a heart beat.
"Alice has been searching for her own witnesses these last weeks," Edward said. "And she does not come back empty-handed. Alice, why don't you introduce these witnesses you've brought?" Caius didn't want to hear anything, but Aro allowed it.
Alice introduced Huilen. The women then explained how her sister gave birth to Nahuel, who was half vampire. Nahuel was the one who changed Huilen, right after he was born.
"Nahuel, you are one hundred and fifty years old?" Aro asked.
"Give or take a decade," he answered. " We don't keep track."
"And you reached maturity at what age?"
'About seven years after my birth, more or less, I was full grown."
"You have not changed since then?"
"Not that I've noticed." Wow. Seven years, and Nessie would be full grown. That was, well, that was, just, wow. That's all I could think. Would it be the same for Connor? Oh, man, this just keeps getting better and better.
After hearing about Nahuel's father, liking to create a bunch of human/vampire children Caius and Aro seemed to think we weren't the only trouble anymore.
"We take care of the aberration here, and then follow it south," Caius said to Aro.
"Brother," Aro, said in a soft voice. "There appears to be no danger. This is an unusual development, but I see no threat. These half-vampire children are much like us, it appears."
"Is that your vote?" Caius demanded.
"It is." Aro then turned and shouted for all to hear. "Dear ones, we do not fight today." We all waited for this to be some kind of trick. But as Aro held up his hands to us, almost like an apology, we realized it really was all over. "I'm so glad this could be resolved without violence. My friend Carlisle, how please I am to call you friend again!"
"Leave in peace, Aro," Carlisle said. "Please remember that we still have our anonymity to protect here and keep your guard from hunting in this region."
"Of course, Carlisle. I am sorry to earn your disapproval, my dear friend. Perhaps, in time, you will forgive me."
"Perhaps, in time, if you prove a friend to us again." Aro bowed his head and moved back to his people. We all watched as they disappeared into the trees. It was silent then. Everyone was still waiting for it to be one huge trick.
"Seriously, people. They're not coming back. Everyone can relax now." It took a moment to set in, but then cheering erupted. Everyone was kissing and hugging. Bella had taken Nessie off Jake's back. I was so excited that I flipped back into my human form. I didn't even care that I was naked in front of so many people. Actually, that shouldn't sound crazy at all, because, really, I didn't care at all. Emma and Eric, who also didn't care about being naked, flipped too. The three of us were hugging and jumping up and down.
"Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god. Can you believe we made it out of that alive?" Emma yelled.
"That was the craziest thing I have ever gone through," said Eric. "There is no way I can ever go back to Wolf Lake. That place just seems so freaking boring in comparison. Not that I'm saying I want stuff like this to happen everyday, but…WOW!"
Jake, Leah, Seth, and Embry were looking at us as if we had lost our heads. They really needed to get over the not wearing clothes in front of people thing. Seriously, we were alive, we were beautiful, and we were all together.
"Jake if you don't flip back right now so I can give you the biggest kiss of your life, so help me god, I will kill you." Not even hesitating, he changed back, and I was in his arms. I was kissing him as if my life depended on it, and yeah, it kind of did.
When I stopped to catch my breath, I noticed that Emma and Eric had gotten Leah and Embry back into their human forms. Only Seth remained in his wolf.
"I can't believe its all over," I whispered, looking up into Jake's eyes. He bent down and nuzzled his nose against mine. A huge smile was on his face.
"Let's go home. I'm sure Connor is driving my father crazy." I nodded my head and then placed a quick kiss on his cheek.
"That sounds like the most wonderful thing in the world," I said. "Yes indeed, Let's go home."
Four years later
I stood on the edge of the water, just looking off into the darkness. I was having one of those real soul searching moments. The ones where you just think about everything that has happened in your life. A small smile played on my lips as I recalled the days events. The smile grew as I felt a pair of arms slip around my waist.
"What are you doing over here by yourself?" Jacob whispered into my ear. He placed a small kiss behind it, causing me to shiver. He chuckled deeply, feeling my reaction to his touch. I turned in his arms and placed a kiss on his lips. He deepened it instantly, and softly moaned into my mouth. We were both breathless as I pulled away.
"Come back to the party. Everyone wants to have a chance to talk to the bride." He took my hand and walked me back toward the bonfire that was being held on the beach. It was our wedding day. We had finally decided to tie the knot like humans do.
Everyone had come, and when I say everyone, I mean everyone. Both packs were present. My parents came from Wolf Lake. Connor, and Nessie, who both looked like they were about ten years old, were sitting by the fire, listening to Jake's dad tell the old legends. Even the vampires had shown up. At first it was hard for Sam and some of the elders to agree to letting them on the land, but they finally gave in.
Jake walked me over to where Edward and Bella were standing. The four of us had really grown into the best of friends. Not that we had much of a choice. Our children constantly wanted to be together. It was a two sided thing. It wasn't just Connor because of the whole imprint thing. Nessie wanted to be with Connor just as much as he wanted to be with her.
"I'm so happy that you two finally decided to get married," Bella said, pulling me into a hug, and kissing me on the cheek.
"Well, you know, we wanted everyone to be able to make it. It's going to be hard on Billy once we leave La Push. Might as well get married here so he could see it," I said. The years were passing and it was time for the Cullens to move on. Not to mention, Nessie was getting older looking and she was only four. Connor was having the same problem, plus there was no way we could keep him from her. So, Jake came to the conclusion that we were just going to have to follow the Cullens and live with them. He also might have mentioned that wherever Bella was, trouble was soon to follow. She smacked him for saying that one.
Jake gave Seth, Embry, Emma, Leah, and Eric the choice to stay behind, but they all agreed that coming with us was the best idea. They said we were pack, and we would stay one. I was happy they were coming, and even though Jake complained about having to still be their alpha, I knew he was secretly happy.
We were going to be leaving in a couple of days, I wasn't really sure where we were going. No one was. Alice said she would tell us when she saw it. Life right now, seemed completely perfect. Well, almost perfect. There was one thing I had left to do, and that was tell Jake some news that I had found out a couple of days ago.
"Will you two excuse us?" I asked. "I have to tell my new husband something in private," I said, with a smile. Edward gave me a smirk of his own. No doubt he already knew what I was going to tell Jake. Damn mind reader. I led my mate a little ways away from everyone and pulled him into a hug.
"So what do you need to tell me?" He asked. I leaned up to whisper into his ear.
"Do you remember when I went into heat a couple of weeks ago?" I asked, nipping at his ear.
"Oh, yeah, I remember."
"Well, I'm pregnant. Again." He just looked at me with a blank expression for a couple of seconds. "Surprise," I said, with a laugh.
"You're What?!" he yelled. Some things will never change. I turned and saw that all eyes from the party were all on us. I then looked back at Jake, and noticed that this wasn't like last time at all. He wasn't upset just surprised. A huge grin was on his face, and he then pulled me into his arms. He started spinning me around and around.
"Hey, hey, pregnant skin walker here. All this spinning is going to make me sick." He stopped spinning me, but he didn't put me back down on my feet. He kissed me, and then gave me one of his wonderful smiles.
"So we just got married, we're moving, and we're having another baby. Are our lives ever going to find a calm moment?" he asked with a laugh.
"You're life stopped being calm and normal the day you hit me with your car."
"And I wouldn't wish for my life to be any other way."
"Same here, Jake, same here."
Yay! The end. I can't believe it's finally over. I can't believe it took me this long to finish! So yeah, the sequel, it should be up soon. I promise it won't take me like a month to post it. I already have the whole story planned out in my head, I just need to get a start on the writing part. Ugh! I have so many crazy ideas for more stories. I have an Embry story in the works, which I already started. I wont post that until after the sequel to this though. Plus I'm thinking of a Paul/Rachel story, but again, not till after the sequel.
Oh, Oh! I have a huge question for people. In my sequel, where do you think the Cullens and Jake's pack should move to. I have a couple of places in my head, but I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas out there. Please add any ideas to your reviews! Thanks so much for reading!
