Disclaimer: Only Emma and Ian are mine. The words in italics are the words to the song, 'Let Love Lead the Way' sung by the Spice Girls.


What makes this world go round
Will the answer let her down
She is so sweet and young
And her life has just begun
What does her future hold
That's the story left unknown
Will she make it through her days,
Let our love lead the way

Jasper's POV

I stood listening to the crowd cheer. I couldn't help but smile as I imagined that every single person here was cheering for Emma. Well that was partially true. She did just assist in the winning goal against Germany. One of her dreams was either to play in a World Cup or Olympic Games on the USA Women's Soccer Team. And now she's done both.

Yet it was not easy getting here.

Both of us almost died before either of us could start our lives together. It did set Emma back a few more months in her rehab and essentially ended my high school soccer career due to our injuries. But Emma would not let me be a quitter – so I rehabbed with her and returned for our senior year. Thanks to her insistence on my rehab, we both ended up getting scholarships to UNC for soccer.

While we went off to the east coast for school, the rest of our friends and family dispersed as well. With the birth of Anna not long after our accident and with Carlisle and Esme helping out with their granddaughter so much, Edward and Bella stayed back in Washington for school. Both Ian and Emmett got scholarships for Oregon for football, so of course Rose and Alice followed them.

That was almost 8 years ago. Since then all of the couples within our group of friends had gotten married. Bella and Edward of course were first – the first month after gradating from high school. They had both promised to attend college and graduate, which they did. Then came Emmett and Rose followed by Alice and Ian.

And last, but certainly not least was Emma and myself. Out of all of the couples we had the longest engagement and the only reason we didn't get married in the middle of college was because we were both worried that Emma might get pregnant like both Rose and Alice did and then Emma would have to quit soccer. And that was the last thing that either of us wanted.

So we waited until our college playing days were over. We were married the first weekend after our college graduation.

Then came Team USA soccer calling. Emma could not say no. And I could not deny her the dreams that she had wanted since she was a child. So we made a deal. The Olympics were four years away with the FIFA World Cup being three – so she would train and play with the National Team while I attended Law School. She had originally decided to go back for graduated school in marketing, but put it off for soccer. We had discussed not having a family until we were finished with our advanced education anyways. So it was a win – win for everyone.

Now all of it was over.

I was finished with law school and had set up a practice with Edward back in Seattle. Ian and Emmett both landed in the NFL, while Rose and Alice teamed up to create a line of clothing for kids and young adults. While Emma and USA Soccer had just won the Olympic Gold Medal.

Life was perfect.

Part of me laughs (oh)
Part of me cries
Part of me wants to question why (question why)
Why is there joy
And why is there pain (ooh)
Why is there sunshine and the rain
One day you're here
Next you are gone
No matter what we must go on
Just keep the faith
And let love lead the way

Everything will work out fine
If you let love, love lead the way

Bella's POV

"Do you think Aunt Emma will let me take her medal to show all my friends?" Anna asked as we walked back towards the hotel in Rio de Janeiro with Edward's parents.

"I doubt that," I said as I smiled at my 10-year-old daughter.

"Do you know how long she has worked for that medal?" Edward added.

"How long daddy?" Anna asked with a smile on her face.

"Since she was younger than you."

I laughed as I watched Anna's mouth drop in shock. "Your daddy was a good soccer player too. And your Uncle Jasper as well. In fact, Uncle Jasper and Aunt Emma both played at the same college."

"Then I want to keep playing soccer too!" Anna announced, as she thrust her arm up.

"And I'm sure that you will have the best coach in the world," Carlisle said as he and Esme came up along side of their granddaughter.

I continued to listen to the conversation between grandfather and granddaughter as we kept walking through the Olympic Park towards our hotel.

"And you are sure you want another?" Edward whispered as he wrapped his arm around my waist.

"Oh it's a little late for that Mr. Cullen. About 7 weeks too late," I whispered back.

He leaned in and kissed my lips softly. Life was perfect for now.

Sitting there all alone
In the window of her room
Watching the world go by
Brings tears to her eyes
All she sees is hurt and pain,
She wants to break the chain
She'll keep pressing everyday
And she'll find her own sweet way

Part of me laughs (me laughs)
Part of me cries (I cry)
Part of me wants to question why (wants to question why)
Why is there joy
One day you're here (you're here)
Next you are gone (you're gone)
No matter what we must go on (I will go on)
Just keep the faith (keep your faith)
And let love lead the way (I know, I know, I know, ooh whoa)

Emma's POV:

The Summer Games were finally over and I could relax.

Well sorta.

I had been keeping a secret from Jasper since the start of the Olympic Games. Only myself, my coach and team trainers knew. It was the reason why my play time was limited. I would play when needed. And that was fine with me as long as I got a little playing time in each game I would be happy.

But now the Olympics were over and I could tell Jasper my big secret.

I had planned on telling him the night that the team won gold, but it was ruined by Edward and Bella making an announcement of their own – they were finally going to give Anna a little brother or sister. Mom and Dad were over the moon with the announcement and when I looked at my husband's face, all I could see was disappointment masked by happiness.

Disappointment that it wasn't us saying that we were going to have a baby. I knew deep down that Jasper wanted to have a family. All of our other friends and family had little ones, while we still did not. He had given up so much to allow me to pursue my dream.

Now it was time to make his dream come true.

I knew if I told him that night, he wouldn't really believe me.

So I decided to wait until we were back home. Then I would surprise him one night after I had seen my own doctor.

Needless to say, after seeing my own doctor I was surprised as well. He told me there was a chance that I might be carrying twins. It was still too early to tell for sure. I still had a few more weeks to go until he would know for sure. But all the signs were pointing in that direction.

Now I really couldn't wait to tell Jasper.

I planned everything out for when he got home one night. His favorite meal followed by a nice long walk with our lab puppy Hank. Then I would tell him either before the walk or right after wards. I couldn't wait to see his face. I kept the ultrasound picture confirming that we were having at least one baby hidden in my purse until later.

I had everything ready to go into the oven for dinner when I decided to take a little nap before cooking.


I slowly opened my eyes to find Jasper sitting next to me on our bed with Hank curled up at my feet. Jasper was still dressed for work, but his suit tir

Shit. I had slept way longer than I wanted to.

Now my plans were ruined.

Tears began to sting my eyes.

"What's wrong?" Jasper asked placing a hand against my cheek, seeing that I was upset about something.

I sniffled, forcing the tears back as I sat up and clutched a pillow to my chest. That's when I let everything out.

"I had a perfect evening planned out but I fell asleep! I was going to make you your favorite dinner of pork roast with potatoes and beans. Then for dessert we were going to have chocolate chip cookie sundaes…"

"Whoa what is with the big meal? You rarely cook for me unless it's a special occasion."

"but it is," I said as I leaned over and pulled out the ultrasound picture from my purse. "We're going to have a little soccer player of our own."

I held up the ultrasound picture for him to see.

"Really?" he asked with a smile on his face.

"Really," I assured him. "Now there is a high chance that it is twins. But Dr. Field won't be able to tell for sure for a few more weeks. But all the signs are pointing that way."

I handed him to ultrasound picture with a smile on my face. He took the picture from my hand, looked at it then pulled me close and kissed me deeply on the lips. "I love you, Emma," he whispered as heard him began to get choked up.

"I love you too," I answered, kissing him back.

Our lives for now were complete.

You can be all that and still can be who you are
You gotta know for sure that it isn't make believe
You may feel weak but you are strong
Don't you give up if
If you keep holding on, you'll never be wrong
Just close your eyes cause it lies deep in your heart, yeah

Part of me laughs
Part of me cries (I cry)
Part of me wants to question why (question)
Why is there pain
Why is there sunshine then the rain
One day you're here (you're here)
Next you are gone (you're gone)
No matter what we must go on (I will)
Just keep the faith
And let love lead the way (lead the way)

Jasper's POV

The last few months have gone by in a blur. And I loved every moment of it. I don't care what Ian and Emmett said about when Alice and Rose were pregnant – and how they only wanted their wives' bodies back to normal, I loved it as I watched Emma's body change. What was really interesting was the difference between her pregnancy and Bella's.

Emma had indeed been pregnant with twins – a boy and a girl; while Edward and Bella had another little girl. They named their new daughter, Ellie.

As for our children, we decided to go with old fashion names – Maria and Mason.

Finally after so long, our lives were finally complete.

Part of me laughs (I laugh)
Part of me cries (I cry)
Part of me wants to question why (Question why)
Why is there joy (So much joy)
Why is there pain (So much pain)
Why is there sunshine then the rain
One day you're here (You're here)
Next you are gone (You're gone)
No matter what we must go on (I will)
Just keep the faith
And let love lead the way (Lead the way)

Everything will work out fine
If you let love, love lead the way
Love lead the way
