Author's Note :
I wanted to write another Jake/Nessie story so here you go!
WARNING : Contains lemon and limes!

"Everyone should be arriving at the beach, so we need to hurry." my sister Rebecca stated.
The inevitable day has finally arrived. It was Nessie's seventh birthday, and she wasn't so little anymore in fact she was quite a woman.
Nearly seven years ago we all stood in the clearing to protect her as one cohesive unit against the Volturi, and unwilling to bow to the monarchy. It infuriated me while entertaining the reminder, and the suggestion, of being a guard dog for Aro and his coven. Because the only vampire that I guard with my life is my Renesmee's, and I have since the day she was born.
"Jake! Stop staring into space and help me with this stuff!" Rebecca called out snapping her fingers in front of me.
Shoving the pack of marshmallows into the cardboard box, my sister walked out of the kitchen and to the front door. I felt bad for Rebecca, she had recently returned to La Push after her divorce, thus I felt even worse for my self and Billy, and she never left the house.
"Sure, sure." I replied scooping up the cooler, "What time is it?" I asked following outside to her Dodge Durango.
"Rachel and Kim are handling it, so I need your help setting things up at the beach." Rebecca replied opening the trunk.
"My job had been to pick up Nessie, not Rachel and Kim's!" I protested.
"Oh get over it you were with her this morning!" Rebecca snapped she was annoyed as ever.
I rolled my eyes sliding the cooler into the back of her car before walking to the passenger side.
"If this were a surprise wouldn't you think that Nessie will suspect Kim and Rachel showing up at 11:45 to pick her up?" I pointed out climbing into the vehicle.
"No Jacob." Rebecca sighed as she sat in the black leather driver's seat, "Will you just let me have a little bit of fun?"
"Sorry" I replied, "continue with the fun."
"I will." Rebecca replied, her face drawing into a small victorious grin, the car coming to life, "everyone is showing up right? It is only fair that her La Push family throw a party."
"Embry is stuck at school until tomorrow but people will be happy to see you out of the house." I said.
Rebecca sighed as her tiny frame sat back in the seat, as the car slid into drive.
My nail polish of choice, cherry red, stood out against my alabaster skin and had been the perfect color to use. The poignant smell of the adornment burned my nose while I alleviated the boredom that tonight had brought.
It is my seventh birthday. I am finally going to stop growing, and it infuriates me to go shopping with Aunt Alice only to find my clothes no longer fit after a week.
"What in the name of Carlisle is that stench?" Uncle Emmett said his voice seemed to make the windows rattle.
"Oh!" I jumped as the small wand slid across my little toe, "Damn it I was almost finished!"
"Renesmee Carlie Cullen that is a foul mouth you have." Uncle Emmett as he sat down with me on the front porch.
"Hell yes I do, who in the world taught me such filth?" I mocked looking to my Uncle; the golden color of his eyes seemed to glow against the night.
"I will take the family pet for 200." Uncle Emmett joked.
"Well Jake doesn't help." I replied, reaching to repair my tarnished foot.
"It isn't our fault that he sucks at baseball; if Esme's face could blush she would have turned the color of that paint." Uncle Emmett replied.
"Aunt Rosalie threw the baseball across the field and yelled fetch." I said.
"And you laughed! You are lucky that she loves you enough not to kill him, she hates sharing, and being conked in the head by a foul ball by Jacob didn't help. How much longer do you have?" Uncle Emmett said.
I grinned reaching for shiny red cell phone illuminating the screen, "Thirty more minutes and I am officially stuck in this body for the rest of my life."
"You are stuck in that body for the rest of eternity, now, if you promise not to tell Aunt Rosalie I will give you an early present." Uncle Emmett replied elbowing me.
My chocolate eyes snapped to my Uncle, with a smirk he motioned for me to follow him into the house.
"Seriously!" I squealed jumping from my seat.
"We have to hurry I have no idea when they will be back, and Alice isn't here to warn me." Uncle Emmett said.
"I understand what is it?" I asked.
"Come on." He laughed wrapping his marble arm around my shoulder.
Uncle Emmett had become more than an Uncle, yet he was a big brother, and best friend who I could turn to for anything. We both had a competitive spirit that flourished during a baseball game as if we were in the World Series.
As we walked through the foyer, I wrapped my arms around my Uncle resting my head on his shoulder.
"Hey what's that for?" Uncle Emmett laughed returned the hug while walking up the stairs.
"This is just a thank you for being my family." I replied.
I was eternally grateful for my family after all they had done for me over the past seven years I owed them more than just my life.
"Yeah love you too kiddo." Uncle Emmett grinned as we approached the top of the stairs.
I smiled up at Uncle Emmett as I released him allowing him to lead the way down the chilled hallway.
"Wait here." Uncle Emmett said pointing as we entered his bedroom.
I nodded as he disappeared into Aunt Rosalie's expansive closet while I took in the beauty of the white bedroom.
My fingers stood out against the mahogany cabinet as I tracing the intricate paisley design on the doors occupying the curiosity I felt to the gift. With Uncle Emmett it could be anything a new baseball glove, keys to the Jeep or the Harley Davidson Edward forbade.
La Push had been my summer home, and thanks in large part to Jacob, my Jacob that is, I had learnt to fix and ride motorcycles. So many things had changed over the summer including my own desires towards Jacob which, like my body and mind, no longer remained childish. I loved the way I felt while I was with him, as if my body would catch on fire.
I closed myself off to my environment, as I embraced the memory of the way Jacob had looked this summer cliff diving. The ocean's relentless teasing each time he landed in the water leaving droplets sliding down his muscles while sauntering out of the ocean. My skin began to tingle as if liquid electricity had invaded my body while my pulse increased. My cheeks flooded with a head as I lightly bit the corner of my lower lip, and wrapped my hand around the back of my neck, a captivating sigh tickling my throat.
I looked to see if I had Uncle Emmett's attention, hoping he did not hear that. I stood silently as I heard a slew of curse words coming from his lips as he continued the treasure hunt.
I smirked victoriously while my eyes connected to a full length mirror. A pale woman with chocolate brown eyes stared proudly back to me admiring the newly formed curves. My hands traced over the hourglass figure straightening the black cap sleeve corset top, before smoothing a curl.
"Oh God you aren't turning into Rose are you?" Uncle Emmett teased.
"There can only be one me babe, so what are you doing in the closet?" Aunt Rosalie chimed from the doorway.
Aunt Rosalie's beauty equaled my own, I admired looked to the woman I considered a second mother. Her butterscotch eyes leaving Uncle Emmett, and looking to mine silently acknowledging I should be her competition, and part of me knew that I could win.
"I was looking for….." Uncle Emmett began.
"You got a new lamp!" I pointed to the antique Tiffany lamp on the nightstand.
"E-Bay really is a lovely thing but you will not find your present in the closet because Alice warned he would give it to you." Aunt Rosalie said glancing back to Uncle Emmett.
"Sorry kiddo I tried." Uncle Emmett shrugged.
I laughed and walked across the room, wrapping my arms around his marble waist, "its okay it will just be one more for tomorrow." I assured patting his back.
"Renesmee?" Aunt Alice called from downstairs.
"Promise me that you will not kill him." I grinned to Aunt Rosalie.
"Oh I promise not to kill him, but I can't promise anything else." she replied smirking.
"Okay then have a good night." I laughed leaving the room.
"Happy birthday sweetness." Aunt Rosalie said closing the door behind me.
"Thank you." I replied shaking my head.
I ran downstairs as I had little desire to hear the new lamp break again. Aunt Alice, mom and Uncle Jasper had gathered on to the porch casually awaiting the return of my grandparents and Edward.
"So do I get an early present from either of you?" I said, retrieving my cell phone from the front step, "twenty minutes!"
"Happy birthday sweetie." Bella laughed wrapping me in a cold embrace."Thank you."
"Here they are, and remember Nessie you do have a party tomorrow so not too late." Aunt Alice's voice chimed.
"I know how hard you worked and I will be there in whatever you dress me in. I hope that they brought Zafrina?" I said looking to the gravel drive.
"It's Kim and Rachel, please be back here at a reasonable hour." Bella said releasing me.
"I will be I promise!" I nodded as the white sedan crunched against the gravel.
"Nessie!" Rachel yelled her head hanging out of the car window laughing.
"Get back in the car!" Kim giggled.
I laughed waving a farewell to my family as I walked from the front porch picking up my shoes as I went.
The rock music spilled from the open windows providing nature with a beat, as Rachel's head began to bob around to the beat. Neither of us held on to the insignificant handicap of life known as inhibitions and I loved that about her.
"Hello!" I sang dancing to the car.
"Well hello, our birthday girl!" Kim grinned as I got inside, "we know that it is late but we thought we could take you back to Rachel's house for a girl's night and celebrate you officially becoming a woman."
"While being at the rip old age of seven." Rachel cackled putting the car into reverse, "do you know how many women would kill to look like you right now?"
"Oh stop." I snorted.
"You will never have a wrinkle on that pretty face." Kim teased handing me a piece of black fabric.
"Are you serious?" I asked looking to the homemade blindfold, "so much for the girl's night."
"Please?" Kim asked.
I smiled grabbing the blindfold tying it over my eyes, and they were helping me to celebrate after all.
