Joshua's Sweet Isabella.
Chapter One : Home Coming.
I had never felt pain like this before. My heart had broken into millions of pieces, turned into tears and now washed my face with my heart ache. How could anyone survive this agonizing feeling? My beautiful, harebrained mother was now dead. She was so innocent, loving and caring, selfless and beautiful. How could this happen to her? My father looked at her dead body, cold and white with complete shock and pain stitched in his face. I closed my eyes. I couldn't see this picture any more. It was killing me. It was killing my dad, someone who never showed his emotions to others around him.
My eyes tightly shut as I sobbed. My heartache finally breaking through the tough skin my father had brought me up in. Then the heat of his skin wrapped around me as I felt the liquid of his tears fall onto my hair. I couldn't hold it in anymore. I held him so tightly I thought I would break his bones. Luckily my father was a strong man, mentally and physically, he wouldn't break. My mothers death seemed to kill apart of him though, but I expected nothing less. He loved her like no other, she was his soul mate. He always told me that, and she would always agree.
I remember every time they told me that their love was unique, then they would look into one another's eyes and I saw it. It was true love, they were each others soul mates and I envied it. I couldn't bare this new pain, just thinking how my father was going to survive this. Nothing was more important to him than his family. And now he had lost one of the most important people in it.
"My sweet Isabella. She loved us both very much. Don't mourn her death - celebrate the life she had with us." He kissed my forehead as his beautiful russet skin, that I had always been envious about, completely smothered me. I nodded into his hot chest and continued to cry. "Your mother and I love you very much. I wont let anything happen to you. Never." I knew he meant how my mothers death was brought about. Killed in a car accident, by a drunk driver.
"Daddy!" I sobbed as he clutched me tighter to him.
"Shh, shh." He attempted to sooth me. "Do you still want to move?" He asked tenderly. I nodded. My mothers last wish, to move back to where my father and mother had met and fell in love. La Push, Washington. "Okay, baby girl." My mom and dad moved from Washington five years before I was born. Now we were going back, only missing one person. I wasn't sure how dad would handle this without her. But it's what she wanted. I knew she'd want us to go on with out her.
I shut down the next three days. Then it was her funeral. We were driving down to La Push after her wake. My father woke me up gently as he tucked my hair behind my ear and kissed my cheek. I smiled softly as he smiled back and left me in my room. Today was going to be hard. But dad was determined for us to move on. It's what my mother would have wanted, he kept telling me. So I nodded and agreed.
After showering in the heat of the water cascading down my silent figure, I got out after the heat cooled into ice. I shivered as The warmth from the towel contrasted with the cold I had just been in. My dad told me their was a suit in my wardrobe that he bought for the funeral. I looked at the mournful clothing. It was a Chanel little black dress with a matching dinner jacket and Chanel sun glasses which were very dark with the logo on the leg. I don't know why he spent his money on such extravagant clothing for me. He even got designer stiletto heels. I kept my hair down in it's natural loose curls, with the sunglasses sweeping my fringe out of my eyes.
Once dressed I cautiously made my way down to where my dad was dressed in his own designer suit. He smiled softly as he saw me. "Ready to go baby?" I nodded once again as he took my hand and walked me to his Lamborghini Gallardo in dark steel gray. My dad had left his 'poor' life in La Push, when my mother was pregnant with me, determined to make me and mom happy, he became a highly successful judge.
But he had saved enough money to retire early. He was going to be joining the La Push Police department when we moved and I would be enrolled into the res school. When we pulled up to the church, there was a lot of people. And I mean claustrophobic amounts. I shied away into my fathers side when he opened my door.
"These are all the people who loved your mother, Isabella. Look how loved she was. Now just think how lucky we were to have so much of her in our lives."
"I miss her." I mumbled, but as usual he heard and gripped me into a tight hug. People watching saw my tears and smiled sympathetically for my loss, my heartache. But it wasn't enough, my mother wasn't here. We took our seats after we had greeted everyone and thanked them all for coming. My dad stood up to say his peace. Unknown to me, he began to sing.
Did I disappoint you or let you down?Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had I took what's mine by eternal your soul out into the may be over but it won't stop there,I am here for you if you'd only touched my heart you touched my changed my life and all my love is blind and that I knew when,My heart was blinded by you.I've kissed your lips and held your your dreams and shared your bed.I know you well, I know your smell.I've been addicted to my my have been the have been the one for me.I am a dreamer and when I wake,You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you as you move on, remember me,Remember us and all we used to beI've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.I've watched you sleeping for a while.I'd be the father of your child.I'd spend a lifetime with you.I know your fears and you know 've had our doubts but now we're fine,And I love you, I swear that's true.I cannot live without my my have been the have been the one for I still hold your hand in mine when I'm I will bear my soul in time,When I'm kneeling at your my my have been the have been the one for me.I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.
My tears were pouring as my fathers own eyes shed his grief. His eyes fell on mine and he closed his eyes, opening them to see me with all the love he had. I couldn't stop crying as he came to sit next to me and held me close. "It's okay baby, I wont leave you. My sweet Isabella." He kissed my forehead as I looked around me at all the women and men with tears in their eyes. The rest of the service went by quickly. I felt numb listening to her few best friends say nice things about her, my dad seemed to be in the same daze as myself.
After everyone had left, me and dad started our journey to Washington. "It's going to get better. I promise you baby girl." Dad woke me out of my thoughts. We'd been on the road for hours. Maybe more. He looked at me as placed his hand on mine, which was on my thigh. "Only another hour or so and we'll be there." I nodded.
I wasn't sure how to react when we pulled up to La Push, first beach. "It's beautiful." I murmured. Dad wrapped his warm arm around my shoulders.
"This is where I met your mother." He whispered into my hair. Tears washed my face once again. "I know it's going to take time to move on from this Bella. But we'll be okay. If it's the last thing I do, I will make you happy again." He promised as I turned in his arms and rested my head in his chest as he wrapped his other arm around me, my own hands wrapping around his waist. Breathing in his scent I quickly felt my tears stopping.
"I love you daddy." I said as I broke away from his embrace. That's when I heard a low, painful howl. Dad stiffened. Quickly pulling me back into him, he searched the woodland area with his eyes, scanning the unknown threat. I thought he'd be used to the wildlife around here, he did live here for twenty years before he left. "Dad?" I asked quietly.
"Come on baby girl. Lets go home." I nodded as he held my hand and pulled me quickly to the car again. Still looking around us and into the woods. I felt eyes watching me. And it scared me.
"Dad!" I demanded his attention. He looked at me with… regret? "I'm scared." I announced as he engulfed me in a hug. I heard twigs snapping under someone's foot falls and my heart rate picked up, I was terrified.
"I promised you I wouldn't let anything happen to you. But Washington is known for it's bear and wolf attacks. Please can I get you safe?" I nodded as he rushed us into his car again. Knowing he wasn't giving me the complete truth. But too tired to argue. He kept giving me side glances which were annoying me to no end.
"Dad!" I demanded, he looked away sheepish. "What's wrong?" He looked through the front windscreen and ignored my question. I couldn't handle his strange behaviour. So I let sleep over come me whilst he parked up. I was too tired and on the verge of sleep to really wake up and walk into my new home. Dad carried me out of the car.
"Fuck!" He said under his breath as my eyes opened slightly to see a wolf very close. I woke up startled and screamed. "No baby!" Dad tried to calm me down as the wolf just stared at me. I clawed onto my dad. "Isabella stop!" He said full of authority.
"Look!" I demanded, and sure enough he did as I asked and sighed. "Keep me safe." I pleaded as I repeated his promise to me. He looked torn. "Daddy?" I begged as he looked into my teary eyes. He nodded and walked me into the house. Setting me down to walk back out the door. "NO! DON'T LEAVE ME TOO!" I screamed at him, he froze at the door. "Don't leave me like mom. Please dad. Don't leave me on my own!" He looked beaten as he shut the front door and walked up to me holding me in a death grip.
"I wont leave you baby girl." He whispered. "But I need to make sure your safe. Let me check it's gone." I reluctantly nodded as he left the room. Leaving me standing alone in the blackness of the early morning hours. Minutes turned into hours, hours turned into the sun rising and I was still standing in the exact same spot he had left me in. Too scared to think of the obvious. He was gone, just like mom, he left me.
I felt my heart clench as I fell to the floor in a crumpled heap. Tears engulfing me as my already blood shot eyes stung with the new tears. Red eyed and broken I fell apart. He left me. Mom left me. I was on my own. Sleep eventually engulfed my body and that's where I remained until hot arms picked me up. I snuggled into their heat.
"I can't wait to meet you." The voice murmured and then the heat was gone and the coolness of fresh sheets engulfed me. Too tired to wake up I remained in my sleepy daze.
"Bella!" I heard someone familiar call out. Groggily waking up to a slight chuckle I looked into the eyes of my father. I said nothing, did nothing. Just stared. "Sorry I was out so long." I felt the tears starting and apparently so did he, so he turned his head away.
"I need to shower." I stated as he groaned and put his head in his hands.
"Bella. I need you to meet some people. There's some things you have to know." I nodded.
"Your very upset with me?" He asked and I nodded. "Please forgive me baby girl?" I agreed and he left. I got washed and dressed quickly as dad said we had company coming over. I looked at my clock it was now eleven am. I had no idea what time these friends of his were coming over.
"Dad?" I yelled. I heard him get up and shuffle to the bottom of the stairs.
"Yeah, baby girl?"
"When are you friends coming?" He laughed as I heard other laughs too. Great they were already here.
"Their already here baby." I groaned and he laughed, obviously hearing it. I knew my dad had very sensitive hearing. I thought it strange for someone to have such heightened senses, but he just laughed at me every time I complained about it. "Come down when your ready. Their all eager to meet you." I laughed. How many did he have over?
"Why?" I mumbled to myself, but dad was on my case once more.
"Just want to see how gorgeous you are." I scoffed at that. I was nothing compared to how mom used to look. Or even my dad. They were both attractive people and they produced a plain Jane. I felt sorry for them. They had been cheated if you ask me. "Just get your ass down here!" He finalised as I giggled. Slowly walking to my door and shutting it after me. I danced down the stairs. "In the lounge."
"Um, daddy?" He chuckled as he walked into the hall way.
"In here baby girl." I nodded as he wrapped an arm over my shoulder and pulled me into the crowded room. There were a few gasps as I walked in. I looked at them all and smiled. But instantly turned to my dad for some form of an introduction. "Baby this is my old friends." He pointed to a few of the older men. "This is Billy Black."
"Hello." I said timidly as dad squeezed my shoulder in support.
"It is lovely to meet you Isabella." I nodded in thanks.
"This is Charlie Swan, he's the Chief of police in La Push." I smiled warmly and he just stared, it was rather uncomfortable. "Charlie?" My dad tried to break the trance he was under.
"She looks so much like Renee." He stared at me. "It's nice to meet you Isabella." I nodded.
"Thanks, you too." He smiled and nodded his head.
"This is Quil senior. He's my friends dad, my friend died of a bear attack." I nodded and smiled sadly towards the old man, who seemed to be staring intently at me.
"I'm sorry for your loss." He nodded and smiled in appreciation.
"It's lovely to meet you Isabella." His voice was fragile, but still had a strong quality to it. "You really are the spitting image of your mother, but you have your fathers eyes." I blushed and bit my lip as I thanked him for his compliment.
"I don't know who you got your shyness from? Neither of your parents were shy." My blush deepened as dad chuckled and pulled me closer to his side. I looked at the kind woman who seemed to be staring just like every other person. "My name is Sue Clearwater. My husband Harry and your dad were good friends, my husband died of a heart attack. But these are my children. This is Leah and Seth."
"Hi. I'm sorry for your loss also." They all smiled and thanked me. I looked up at my dad, when he kissed my forehead and looked at the group of boys.
"These boys are my friends children." I smiled at dad as he pointed to a tall guy, dark shaggy hair and black eyes, all of the boys muscled up and tall, he smiled softly at me. "This is Billy's son, Jacob." I nodded and smiled.
"Hello Jacob." His smile widened and his eyes sparkled as he looked me up and down.
"Hello. It's nice to meet you." I nodded. "This is the rest of our gang. Brady, Collin, Quil, Embry, Jared, Paul and Sam." I looked at them all. But also looking up at my dad for some signal that it was okay to talk to them or interact with them, he slyly nodded as I looked back at the boys and landed on a pair of chocolate brown orbs, staring at me intently. I had no clue which one he was, but he had my attention completely. Even when several growls interrupted my silent stare. He was beautiful. His sleek black hair, shiny, straight and chopped at the bottom of his neck, his body muscled up and tall, maybe 6"5, plump, kissable lips and high cheek bones. I was most definitely drooling by now.
"Bella." Dad shook me slightly. I blushed as I looked up at him, but when a different growl came from the God's bare chest I turned back to him and he blushed under his russet skin. I bit my lip as my own blush was called upon. "Jared stop staring at my daughter!" Dad sounded very menacing. Jared however looked annoyed. He growled at my dad and I raised my eyebrows.
"Your growling?" I stated. Everyone seemed shocked, then burst out laughing. I blushed at embarrassing myself. Dad however hugged me and kissed the top of my head.
"I guess we should explain some stuff." One of the older boys said. I smiled from under my dad's watchful gaze. Dad tensed as this boy spoke and glared at him.
"Dad." I whispered he looked at me expectant. "It's rude to glare at people. Especially if he's your friends son." He laughed a non amused laugh and nodded. I heard someone murmur, 'especially since he's your own kid, Joshua.' My head picked up and I stared at the person who had spoken. It was Billy. "What did you say?" I demanded. No longer caring that I was staring. Dad held onto me tighter. "Dad, what did he mean?" I looked up at dad who was giving serious evils to Billy.
"Nothing." He said sternly as if finishing that subject. He was still glaring at Billy.
"No. He said-"
"Isabella. Enough." Dad finalised. I yanked myself out of his grip and walked further into the room of people. I felt so short, even if most of them were sitting down. Dad tried to pull me back to him. But my mind was set on getting closer to Billy.
"'Especially since he's your own kid, Joshua'." I kept going.
"We have to start from the beginning now." Dad muttered under his breath.
"Oh no, please don't strain yourself." I mocked. "I just got told that you have a son… not just any son, he's right fucking there!" I pointed at Sam. "Yes. You need to start from the fucking beginning!" I yelled. Not caring I was making a huge scene in front of these people.
"Calm down Isabella." My dad warned.
"Calm down!" I demanded. "How the fuck did you think I was going to react. Were you ever going to tell me about him? How old is he?" I looked at Sam.
"I'm twenty three." I laughed very amused at this.
"Five years before me! What did you do!" I glared at my father. "Found mom and ran away from your responsibility?" Everyone seemed interested in his answer.
"It's not like that. I left Sam's mother before I knew she was pregnant, I was with your mom when she told me she was pregnant. Renee and me had just moved to New York. His mother didn't want me to be involved in his life."
"What do you mean!" Sam got defensive. Dad sighed.
"Your mom knew I imprinted on Renee and said having another woman's baby in our relationship would be hard for Renee. I tried to reason with her, but she was adamant. I gave her money, but she sent it back. I gave you cards and presents for your birthdays, Christmas's and such, but she sent them back. She didn't want me in your life."
"You wanted to be there?" Sam asked. Tears close to falling down his cheeks. Dad nodded and looked between me and Sam.
"When Bella came into my world I tried even harder to get to you. I even went to a lawyer, but that's when your mom got rather nasty. She said she would leave La Push and not tell me where you were going. I couldn't do anything if there was any future hope of seeing you again." He looked at me apologetically. "Baby girl, that's not the beginning though." He looked at the rest of them, who all nodded.
"Dad I'm sorry." He shook his head.
"I still should have told you, you had a brother." I smiled. Then he changed subjects. "You always complained about my super hearing. "He chuckled. "That's not out of nowhere. Me and my friends, and their children are very special." I nodded. " Can we go for a walk?" I nodded. "Sam you too." He nodded and stood up obediently. I took a hold of my fathers hand as Sam stepped by my side watching me carefully.
"Take a picture, it'll last longer." I teased. He blushed at being caught.
"It's hard to believe I have a little sister." He looked disbelieving. "But here you are." I smiled and nodded.
Dad stopped us, just as we walked through the woods. Looking at me, then nodding at Sam.
"Baby girl, do you remember last night, the wolf?" I nodded as I looked at his questioningly. "Look." He said pointing to the small clearing, where a huge wolf, the same wolf, appeared. I screamed and pushed dad back towards the house.
"Where's Sam, he can get hurt!" I yelled, looking back at the wolf, who was no sitting down, a funny rumbling noise coming from his chest. "Are wolves meant to make that sound?"
"Baby, you know werewolves are men who turn into wolves. Well Sam and the others in that room are all werewolves. This is Sam." He gestured. I screamed.
"Sam phase back, she needs to see you phase." Right in front of me, the wolf started shaking, his fur turned into flesh and his bones broke and fixed again into a human figure, Sam's figure. There he stood, naked and breathing heavily in front of me. So what do I do? I faint. Obviously.
