A/N: This is the first chapter of part two!!! If you haven't read part one, this story really is not going to make very much sense, so I would reccomend that.
Disclaimer: Do we rewally need disclamiers? Isn't that somewhat implied considering that this is FanFiction??
Chapter One - Christmas
"Merry Christmas!!!!" I heard Alice's voice scream. I opened my eyes up - she was standing in my room in front of me, holding up a satin little dress that was almost the exact same color as my hair. Jacob groaned and rolled over yawning.
"Um, Alice? I'm kind of.....well I'm completely naked right now," I blushed. She held her hand over her eyes as she giggled.
"It's nothing I've never seen before, Nessie. Unless Jacob is naked too, in which case I'll just meet you in the livingroom."
"Yeah.... you might want to do that," I told her. We'd had a very fun night since my parents had been gone. She walked out of the room with her hand still over her eyes. I got out of bed and threw on an old band t-shirt and some shorts. Jacob lifted himself up groggily and smiled widely. I handed him his shorts and smiled back.
"I'll meet you out there," he yawned again. I bent down to kiss him before going to the livingroom myself.
"Alice?" I asked as soon as I saw her. She had a complete blankness in her face; She must be having a vision of something.
"Always so fuzzy....." she whispered to herself before turning to me. "Charlie's not going to be too happy with you this evening."
I swallowed a lump in my throat. I kind of expected so much, but now it was pretty much certain what his reaction would be. It didn't matter though, I still had to tell him. He'd be even more angry if he started seeing me around with an unexplained giant belly, or later with a baby that looked just like me and Jake.
"Oh well, what can ya do?" I said nonchalantly. "What's that for?" I pointed at the dress she was still holding.
"Oh, isn't it so cute?" she held it up and spun it around in the air so I could see every side. "I thought you might like to wear it today, when you go eat with everyone."
"Aww, thanks Alice. You didn't have to get me anything, I didn't get anybody else anything...."
"Oh, this isn't your Christmas present, that's at the house. This is a side gift," she winked. I giggled at her as she threw the dress to me.
"Hey, Alice," Jake said as he came in, his voice still heavy with sleep. I should really give him a break one of these nights; lack of sleep didn't seem to bother me quite so much.
"Hello, Jacob Black. Long night?" she asked with her eyebrow cocked suggestively. I giggled at her and she smiled back at me. "Meet me at the house when you're ready?"
"Okay. I need to take a shower first," I looked over at Jacob and blushed slightly.
"Ohh, Nessie! You can wait to do that!!!! Can I do your hair and makeup?? Please, please?!" She almost jumped up and down in her excitement, making me and Jacob laugh loudly.
"Sure, Alice. That can be my present to you," I smiled. Alice gave me a kiss on the cheek before disappearing out of the door. I crossed lazily over to Jacob and put his arms around me. "Do you want some pancakes for breakfast?" I asked him.
"Sure, Ness, whatever you want," he said with the emphasis on 'you'.
"You know, at some point you have to do something that you actually want to do instead of just giving me everything in the world. I have to make you happy too."
He kissed the top of my head. "Making you happy is what makes me the happiest. Having you around is all that I need."
"You're too good to me," I said as I squeezed him up tighter.
"That's not possible. You're the one who's too good. I could live a million years and still not deserve you, Renesmee," he said seriously.
"Sure, sure," I joked. "So do you really want pancakes?"
He chuckled. "Yeah, pancakes sounds good."
We showered together quickly after we ate breakfast, only getting a little bit carried away with eachother. I put Alice's dress on and searched my closet for some shoes to match. My front door opened gently, and Alice rushed to my room with a shoebox.
"Sorry!" she said quickly, thrusting the box into my hands. "I forgot to drop these off too."
"Thanks," I said as I slipped the little heels on. "Well, I'm ready for you, I guess."
She clapped her hands together and giggled gleefully. The three of us left together and made it to the house in record time.
"Hey, Renesmee!" Jasper hugged me as I came through the door. I loved how other people's happiness always affected him. It's no wonder he loved Alice so much, it would take a lot to keep her in a bad mood.
Everyone passed me through the room, hugging me and wishing me a merry Christmas. Alice finally got ahold of me again and dragged me away to her bathroom. She was very quick, curling my hair up and putting a small amount of makeup on my face. She dusted silvery shimmer powder onto my bare shoulders and down my legs. When she spun me around to look at myself, I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome.
"Thank you Alice," I said giving her a kiss. "You do work wonders."
"Yeah, it's pretty hard to make someone as perfect as you look any better," she laughed. "But I still do it."
We made our way back downstairs. Everyone turned their gaze on me, wondering what Alice had done to me. I giggled at their faces, and then they all got that blank look in their eyes. I felt almost triumphant in a way, dazzling a room full of vampires who I'd thought were un-dazzlable.
"How did you do that?" Jasper asked, eyeballing me and probably wondering why I felt the way I did.
"It's the baby. Everyone's been acting like that around me since I got pregnant."
"Interesting....." Carlisle said from his seat. He looked down at his book without reading it. I felt two warm arms winding their way around me as Jake whispered into my ear.
"You look beautiful, Renesmee," he said slowly. I spun around to see the serene look on his face again. He leaned down to kiss me on the head, still drunk from my presence.
"Jacob...." Dad and Jasper both said at the same time, snapping him out of it slightly. Jasper's sounded angry, so it was easy to tell what emotion Jacob was feeling.
"Sorry guys. Just trying to figure out how the hell I got her," Jacob said, still slightly dazed. He leaned down and kissed my head again.
"We have to open presents!!" Alice interjected, lifting the tension from the room. Or maybe that was Jasper, one could never be sure. She ran out of the room to the kitchen, then came back with her arms full of red and silver boxes. She set them all down in front of me, then flew back to the kitchen, returning with another load of boxes. She handed them out to everyone in the room while my dad brought in the last of them and handed them out as well.
I looked down at the huge pile at my feet and raised my eyebrows. "These aren't all for me, are they?"
"Of course they are," Esme said sweetly. "You're the only reason we even celebrate Christmas anymore."
"I wish you guys hadn't done all this. Now I feel worse for not getting anyone anything."
"Don't worry about it Ness. Here, open mine first," Alice said as she picked up two boxes out of the pile. Everyone tensed up as I took them, and I could tell they were all holding their breath.
"Here." I handed the boxes back to Alice. "You unwrap them for me."
Alice smiled and everyone eased up again. She slid the paper off of the packages and handed them back to me. The first was a box with three outfits in it, two shirts and one very cute black skirt. The next was a dainty silver bracelet with tiny diamonds gleaming in the light.
"Oh, thank you Alice!" I scooped her up into my arms and kissed her. "I love them!"
I let everyone open whichever present they had gotten for me. Jasper got me a makeup kit that Alice had obviously picked out, Carlisle's gift was an autographed poster of Dax Riggs for my room, and Esme's was a lovely black and silver laptop computer. Emmett and Rosalie had gotten me a present too, but I left it untouched. It didn't feel right to open a present from them without them being there to see it.
Jacob had gotten presents from everyone, too. Alice, Jasper, Carlisle, Esme, and Emmett had all gotten him shorts and t-shirts. Mom and Dad had gotten him some very nice running shoes which he was now wearing.
"The last one is outside," Dad said with a smile. I knew what it was instantly - he'd been on me for over a year to learn how to drive. I didn't see much point in it, I could run anywhere I needed to go. "It would be useful, anyways," he said in response to my thoughts.
Everyone followed us outside, and Jacob gasped as he saw what my father's gift was. A sleek black car with tinted windows sat in front of the house. I had no idea what type of car it was, but it was very pretty.
"It's a 2010 Aston Martin V-12 Vantage," Dad said. "Not that you care, just so long as it's 'pretty'." He said the last word in a girly voice, making us all bust out laughing. Jacob went down to the car and stroked it like he had fallen in love. I followed him to the new car and looked it over as well. It was very nice - and very expensive.
"Don't worry about that, Renesmee. You know we have more than enough money to afford anything we want," Dad reassured me. I knew we had the money, I just didn't think we should waste it.
Jacob looked at me, his eyes full of wonder. I laughed loudly at his expression and told him what he wanted to hear.
"You can drive it Jacob. We have to go to Charlie's soon anyways."
He wrapped his long arms around me and kissed me softly. "I'm so lucky," he smiled.
I hugged and kissed everyone goodbye, thanking them all again for their generosity before getting into the passenger's side of my new car. I wanted to go ahead and tell Charlie all of my news before my parents came over so that they wouldn't have to face his wrath. Jacob took a roundabout way to Grandpa's, enjoying the new ride too much to have it be over so soon.
"Um.... would you rather wait out here for a little while?" I asked once he pulled up in front of the little house. "He might shoot you or something."
Jacob laughed a little, but I could see his nervousness. "No, it's going to be okay. Charlie's always loved me."
Yeah, til now. Alice already told me he was going to freak out. We walked slowly up to the porch. Charlie opened the door and hugged me up tightly.
"Nessie!! I'm so glad you're okay!!" he said excitedly as we stepped inside. "Hey, Jake! You been takin' good care of my granddaughter?" he asked jokingly. Jacob didn't answer, but shook Charlie's hand politely.
"Grandpa, I have some stuff I need to tell you," I said as I sat with Jacob on the sofa. Charlie's expression changed from ecstatic to confused to almost angry.
"What?" he asked. His face was already starting to turn a little pink. This was not going to be easy.
"Come on, spit it out Nessie." Charlie's face darkened another shade.
I took a long deep breath to ready myself. "I'm pregnant."
Charlie froze up as his face passed by all the normal shades and went straight to a purple. He looked like he was choking to death. I had an urge to get up and give him the Heimlich, but decided to not move.
Charlie's gaze shifted to Jacob. He raised a pointed finger at him, but was still too angry to speak. His face was so purple it looked like his head might pop off.
"YOU......" he said to Jake. Jacob actually looked scared, probably remembering what I'd said in the car. Charlie stood up and reached down for his gun.
"Grandpa, no!!!!" I yelled. His hand froze as he shifted his eyes back to me. We all sat in complete silence as I waited for the color of Charlie's face to at least go down to a red.
"How could you do this Jacob!!!!" he finally screamed. "She's so young, and you're..... STUPID!"
"He's not stupid, Grandpa," I said quietly.
"Oh yes he is!!!! Knocking up my baby granddaughter..." he muttered to himself. "Do your parents know?!?" he asked shifting his look back to me.
"Yes, besides Billy, everyone knows everything," I told him. His face turned back a darker shade of red.
"Well, yes. We're getting married too."
Charlie stood up and paced back and forth across the small open space. He stopped and looked at Jacob again. "How are you still alive?!? Why hasn't Edward lopped your head off yet?!!" he screamed. Jacob still looked afraid to speak, so I answered for him.
"Dad's not mad at either one of us. Everybody else is okay with all of this."
"You are only eight years old!!!!! How could you....do that!!!!??"
"Charlie, look at me." He paused and did as I asked. "Do I look eight years old?"
"Well, no, but -"
"And do I act eight years old?"
He sighed heavily, knowing I had won. "No, Renesmee, you don't. But you still are. There are things about life that you haven't had a chance to learn yet." His head whipped around to look back at Jacob, anger returning to his face. "And you! You are a full grown man! You should have known better!!"
He continued pacing back and forth, muttering incoherent profanities to himself.
"I love her, Charlie. More than anything in the world," Jacob said quietly, making Charlie stop to look at him once more.
"You loved Bella once too Jake. That didn't last very long."
"No, this is completely different. Renesmee is the only one for me. I'll love her forever, I'll try my hardest to make every day the happiest of her life. I was put in this world for her, and she loves me too. I know I don't deserve her, but she loves me anyways....." Jake said a bit louder.
Charlie looked almost touched by his words, his face simmering down to a dark pink. He sat down across from us again, deep in his own thoughts.
"Thank you. I love you, Jake," I whispered low enough so that Charlie could not hear. Jacob put his arm around me and pulled me closer to him. There was a light knock on the door, letting me know my parents had finally arrived.
Charlie stood up and went to open the door for them. They walked into the livingroom silently.
"I'm guessing Renesmee already told you?" Mom said to him.
"Yes she did." He turned his gaze to my father.
"She's mature enough to make her own decisions," Dad said to Charlie's thoughts. Grandpa had learned a few years back about Dad's mind-reading. Dad laughed then said, "I considered it at first, but she would have never forgiven me."
Charlie crossed the room to his tree and handed us all our presents, muttering "Merry Christmas". He went back to his chair and sat down. I opened up the little box and pulled out a necklace. It was the exact same one Jacob had given me before on Halloween. I gasped as I held it out in front of me.
"Thank you Grandpa," I said softly as a tear rolled down my cheek.
"I found it a few miles up the road. Your mom told me it was yours and that you missed it," he said.
We spent the rest of the evening in silence, except for a few words here and there. It was awkward, but I knew Charlie would come around eventually. He hadn't murdered Jacob yet, at least.
Charlie hugged me tightly good-bye. "Take care of yourself," he whispered into my ear. I reached onto my tip toes and gave him a kiss.
"I love you Grandpa."
"Love you too, Nessie."
I smiled at him, and he became dazed as we all left the house.
Yeah, so this chapter isn't too too eventful, but don't worry, there's tons to come. I'm already on chapter thirty (technically sixty since this is a part two and it flows straight from part one with no breaks) and I'm almost done. Anyways, reviews, people, reviews!!
