I know it has been WAAAY too long. But, here it is. Finally. The conclusion to my pointless, fluffy ministory! Thank you for sticking with me and reviewing my story. Well, here it is!
The flight to California was actually pretty fun. Nessie sat in between me and Edward. She asked him a question about airplanes every ten seconds. Apparently, air travel fascinated her. This was her first time on an airplane, and she was psyched.
Emmett and Jasper were sitting behind us, studying maps and brochures of Disneyland, deciding which rides to go on. Alice and Rosalie were talking about the shopping they would be doing, and Jake, who was sitting on the other side of me, had stolen the coloring book and crayons the flight attendant had given Nessie and was now hard at work coloring a picture of an airplane. Moron.
"Jake, didn't you bring anything with you? Something to keep you entertained on the flight?"
"What, like a book? You expect me to read for entertainment?" Jacob hooted with laughter. "That's a good one, Bells."
I threw a bunch of magazines at him. "Here! How about a magazine?"
His eyes never left the coloring book. "So I can read about some pointless people who are in pointless reality shows and get paid to do nothing?"
"Sports Illustrated?" I said hopefully, holding up the magazine.
"Nah, that's all right."
"Jacob, you're seriously just going to color all day?"
"Why does that surprise you, love?" Edward chuckled.
"Shut up Edward! You're the one playing Nintendo DS!"
"So? I'm playing with my daughter? And what's wrong with video games anyway? All of us play all the time," he pointed out.
"You're playing Nintendogs!" Jacob exclaimed.
"Yes, I know. I named him after you, Jacob. I'm currently teaching it how to roll over. Very obedient dog."
Nessie giggled at this. "He's so cute, Jakey! He looks just like you!"
Eventually, Nessie decided that she wanted to sit with Aunt Alice and Aunt Rosalie.
"Nessie!" Alice bubbled. "I know we already watched all the Disney classics. But I found this show that looks really promising, from Disney Channel! It looks really good. It's about a psychic girl, like me! Will you watch it with me? I bought the whole first season for you on your iPod touch. It's called That's So Raven. Please will you watch it with me, Ness?"
When the plane landed and we were waiting for our luggage, Alice and Ness were singing the theme song to that show they'd been watching.
"What have you done, Alice?" I complained to my sister.
"Oh, shut it. Let her be a kid, a girl, while she still can be," Bella whispered. "I'm really glad Emmett planned this trip for her, for us. She only has a limited time to be a kid; and we only have the same amount of time to enjoy it."
"You're right." I sighed.
This was for Nessie. Everything, for Nessie. For my angel, my princess. I never imagined I'd have a daughter; never thought it was possible. I was so thankful for her. And for Bella. I never thought I'd have my own little family. After years and years of being in a family, surrounded by happy couples, I had my own family. My two girls. My loves. I picked the little one up and held her, and wrapped an arm around the bigger one. I looked down at her. Beautiful. She was wearing a yellow tank top and...
Oh, how I loved being so much taller than my wife.
I didn't think life could be more perfect. It was later on in the night. The rest of the Cullens and Jacob had decided to let us have this one night to ourselves. So it was just me, Edward and Nessie sitting on a bench in Disneyland, watching the night time fireworks. Well, Nessie was watching them; Edward and I were perfectly content to watch her beautiful face react to the display.
Emmett had planned everything out perfectly. We'd arrived in California just after the sun had set. After leaving our stuff at the hotel, the three of us had decided to do some stuff at the park. We'd gone on rides together; it seemed as though Nessie was quite the roller coaster fanatic. And Edward had forced her on the carousel, saying it was an experience she needed to have. I wasn't able to stop laughing as Edward circled the ride in time with the speed of Nessie's horse so he could snap some pictures.
Nessie had posed with Mickey and Minnie and Goofy. We were saving the princesses for tomorrow night when Alice would be there. Knowing my sister-in-law, she would probably want to pose with them, too.
This was something Nessie would never forget, something I'd never forget.
I was content. It was just a magical, beautiful...perfect moment, sitting there with my husband's arms wrapped around me, with my daughter in my lap.
And I realized, in that second, that life would always be like this. Amazing, special, and perfect. Because I'd always have my husband by my side, and he would always love me. My daughter would live forever, and no harm could touch anyone in my family.
It was everyone's dream, wasn't it? To stay young forever?
Life would never have to end. There would never be a shortage of love.
We had so many things to live for, and our lives, and youth, would last forever. Forever and ever and ever.
Forever young, I wanna be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever, forever, forever?
Forever young, I wanna be forever young.
Do you really want to live forever?
Thank you all so much for reading! I hope you enjoyed it! This story is now complete! That's so exciting, my first complete story! I won't be starting any new ones for a while, until I finish Rock This Country, and the new story I recently started with Bellandedward4evr, Daughter of Thunder. If you haven't read Daughter of Thunder, you might want to check it out. Bella's dad is Chuck Norris! Bad-ass Bella, anyone? Go read it!
I am, however, working on a couple of one-shots. They should be up soon, in case you're interested in reading.
Okay, so! Review this chapter if you think I deserve it. I've been horrible. When was the last time I updated this story?
But, I recommend going to read Daughter of Thunder. I'm really enjoying working on it, and it's the first REAL collaboration I've done. So go check that out.
I feel so great now that I have one completed story! Again, I hope everyone enjoyed this. OOOHHH I forgot to mention that I don't own Twilight or the song Forever Young by Alphaville. YES, Alphaville, NOT Jay-Z.
Thanks for all the reviews I've gotten so far, by the way. They really mean a lot to me.
Okay, readers! Until next time!
