A/N Thank you all for the reviews and follows! Kind of a fluffy chapter here. Just some chatting and lovins!
"Do you really think my Dad and her are…you know." I couldn't even say the words. The thought of Charlie having sex, especially when it was with anyone but my Mom, was weird. He barely knows this woman - Keeki, and I haven't actually spoken to her yet. You would think that he would want to get to know her first before he does that with her.
Jasper sighed against my stomach and began zipping up my hoody. "Really Bella? It that what you are thinking about right now? Your incredibly sexy mate is trying to be with you." He grabbed my hand and showed me just how much he wanted to be with me.
"I'm sorry Jasper. I just can't shut my damn vampire brain down." I slid down the tree Jasper had pushed me up against and flopped my ass in the dirt.
"Bella, listen to me." He said sternly, bringing me out of my pout. "Charlie has found his mate, he is a male vampire. Yes, they are most likely having… an intimate moment." I snorted at his choice of words and he just shrugged. "And I suggest you get used to it. When mates find each other, they give in to their inner vampire. Do you know how hard it was for me to stop that night in your room? It may have taken us a bit to get our act together, but now that we are mated - and realize it, it's pretty evident that we aren't able to keep our hands off each other." He sigh and dropped to the ground next to me. "Most of the time." He muttered.
"I'm sorry Jasper, but I just… I don't know… my emotions are all over right now. When I told Charlie at the house that I was perfect, I meant it… at the time. But, I have been shielding everyone since the forest because I can barely deal with my own emotions let alone everyone else's." I blew a strand of hair out of my face and sighed. "Between the drama and fighting over the last while and being a newborn vampire I am feeling a little overwhelmed. Rationally, I know that Charlie deserves to be happy and that he is mated now. I also know that he is a newborn vampire like me, and if he is anything like me his emotions are everywhere too." I put my head on my mates shoulder and laced my fingers with his. "I guess I just never thought I would see my Dad with another woman - vampire or not. I know that him and my Mom would've never gotten back together, but I guess that is just the 'teenager' that still lingers deep inside."
"Sometimes I forget that you are still only a few days in to vampire life, not to mention that you are still just a young woman. But, you should be happy for Charlie. I am sure he isn't going to run off with Kiana, they do need to learn about each other, and Charlie won't just up and leave you."
He was right. Charlie would never do that to me. And he was a newborn, who had newborn impulses… just like me. I decided that now was not the time to be dwelling on Charlie, Keeki and the future. Jasper and I had just survived an attack from Maria, her monster and dozens of vampires. Alice and Edward would never interfere in our lives again. I needed to just be happy like I told Charlie I was earlier. And my mate needed me… wanted me by the look of his jeans.
"Jasper." I moved my way around to kneel in front of him. "Let me make it up to you." I said, in what I hoped was a seductive voice, as I busted the fly on his jeans open. "Oops."
He laughed in that sexy way he does and scooted down the tree a bit. "By all means. I won't argue."
Steeling my nerves I placed my hands on his chest and leaned in to kiss him. I only lingered on his mouth for a moment before moving my lips down his jaw and neck. Grabbing the hem of his shirt I pulled it up his toned and scrumptious abs lifting it high enough to run my tongue across one of his nipples.
"Bella…" He purred as I swirled my tongue and bit down lightly. "Harder."
I did as he asked and nipped as hard as I could with out breaking through his marble skin. I motioned for him to raise his arms and I flashed his shirt off. I drank him in as I leaned back on my heals, took an unneeded but calming breath and pulled his pants open. He was still with out underwear, as we just quickly threw on some clothes earlier, and his length sprang free. Why I was nervous, I had no idea. I had done this the night I was changed and he loved it. I took a second calming breath as I looked up at him. He was looking at me through hooded eyes and smiled lazily at me.
"Don't worry, I love everything you do to me." He reached around the back of my neck and tangled his hand in my hair. "Come here, Darlin'." He pulled me to him with a searing kiss, moving his tongue across my bottom lip and tugging it with his teeth. Soon enough all my worry had melted away and I began my dissent downward with my lips. This time when I stopped to bite his nipple my hand grabbed him. He moaned at the contact and I began stroking him at a slow pace. After a few moments my mouth joined my hand and I took him in, moaning as he cried out my name. I realized pretty quickly that this would be different then last time. I was a vampire now, and it seemed as though my gag reflex had disappeared with my heart beat. I smiled around his length and removed my hand and took him fully in to my mouth.
"Fuuuuck…. Bella…so good. Don't stop."
I began to move my head faster and faster and I knew he wasn't going to last much longer. With one final pull I scraped my teeth along him as I came up and with a pop of my lips I let him go.
His growl was feral when he lost the contact, but his disappointment was quickly resolved as shed my pants and spread my thighs over his hips.
"I love you Jasper Whitlock." I whispered. "You are mine."
"Holy hell, Rosie. You are… insatiable..."
He tossed me - not so gently - to the ground as he entered me, lifting my legs and placing them on his shoulders.
"Are you really…ugnh… Em… just like that…. Are you really complaining?"
"No…You. Feel. So. Good." He groaned, accentuating every word as he pounded in and out of me.
"Harder… harder!" I screamed as I reached between us and began rubbing my clit. "Ohhh, Ohhh, I am gonna….EMMETT!"
"ROSE!" As we came together he lost control and dropped himself down so I was folded under his massive chest.
"Sorry Babe. That was just… I actually feel spent." He lifted himself and pulled me up and wrapped me in his arms. No matter how raw and hard we fucked he always held me after. My mate really was a teddy at heart.
We sat in easy silence as we reflected on the day and our most recent romp. I was completely ecstatic at the way things had turned out in the last week. Our lives going forward were going to be wonderful with the new additions to the Cullen Coven. There was always the pending Volturi "visit" but I wasn't worried. Not after the way things had turned out against Maria, Alice and Edward.
Charlie was force to be reckoned with. He already seemed to have excellent control of his gift. And with some practice and training Bella would be equally powerful. She had finally told me about her third gift and how Jasper thinks that she is telekinetic and that seems to make sense. I couldn't wait to see her develop that gift.
"I love you, Rose." Em said placing our previously dismembered hands together.
"I love you too." I answered tracing the lines around our wrists. The line on mine was almost gone, while his was still very prominent against his porcelain skin.
My phone rang and I cursed for bringing it with me. Emmett grabbed it before I could, checking who the caller was before answering.
"'Sup Peter?" I rolled my eyes. Of course it would be him to interrupt our moment. He was probably autodialing all the couples just to piss them off.
"Yeah. Cool. See you in a bit." Emmett hung up and tossed the phone away. Carlisle and Esme were back and wanted to have a family meeting in forty-five minutes. We have had many, many "family" meetings over the decades. This one would be different, and I was looking forward to it, even if it was to discuss the Volturi. The dynamics have changed now; Jasper has become a leader once again and Charlie isn't a shrinking flower. Not to mention the not so timid Bella. Many personalities, but no one had an ulterior motive. There wasn't going to be any deception, just a family that loved each other and wanted what was best for everyone.
Emmett was tracing patterns across my shoulders, humming our song - our current song. "Babe let's go find a train tonight after the meeting. 'Kay?"
"Mhmm, I would love to. Now, let's get this on again, we've got what… a half hour?" I squealed as he jumped up, tossed me over his shoulder and scaled the tree across the way. "Think we can so this with out falling out of the tree this time?"
"Let's find out, Babe." He laughed while spanking me butt. "I hope so."
"For Christ's sakes." I growled as I pulled away from Keeki, whipping the phone out of my rear pocket and checking the caller.
I launched the phone across the room and right through the window pane. If they needed me, they could just talk through the door.
"Oh! Guess you didn't want to talk to who ever that was." She laughed.
"Sorry." I said gently touching her cheek. "It was Peter. And I know he was just trying to be an ass. If they need me, they don't need to call."
My eyes traced the features on her beautiful face, and landed on her lips. They are luscious, I could kiss her forever. No, really, I could. No more breathing means no more stopping.
I leaned in and kissed her gently. "Where were we?" I said smoothly. Well, as smoothly as I, Charlie Swan, could.
"I believe you were about to grab me and throw me down on that chaise over there." She answered kissing me hard as she pushed on my chest walking me backward towards the lounger chair by the window.
I skimmed my hands slowly up her side and ran my thumbs over her gently over her nipples that were staining under her blouse. By the time my the back of my legs hit the chair my hands were wound in her hair, she had undone all the buttons of my shirt and her small hands were gripping my back under my t-shirt. I fell back on the lounger and brought her with me. She chuckled as she shifted to straddled me. Her core pressing perfectly against my very prominent erection.
We both moaned loudly as she began to rock against me, my hands on her hips, her hands in my hair. This was quickly getting out of control and I didn't know if I was going to be able to stop. This wasn't where I wanted to do this; a house full of vampires and on a time limit to boot. As if she read my mind, she slowed our kiss and moved her hands slowly across my shoulders, resting them on my chest and pushing back slightly.
"I think I felt you hesitate there." She said smiling. "Not wanting to be interrupted?" She added lifting her perfect eyebrow.
"No, not really. I don't want to be rushed when we make love for the first time. I don't want to be stuck having to be quiet when I make you scream out my name and when I call out yours." She shivered from my words and I leaned in to kissed her again.
"That sounds amazing, Charlie. I can hardly wait."
Locking her legs around my waist I stood up and headed for the door. "And I think we should talk a little more, we both just said that we weren't sure what we are doing." I chuckled.
I stopped at the top of the stairs and waited for her to answer. "That sounds right. But, if that-" she hitched her thumb over her shoulder "-happens again… I won't be sorry."
"Neither will I, Kiana. I will never regret anything with you."
"Where are you taking us?" She asked as I headed down the stairs.
"To the family room. That way we will behave until I can get you alone… really alone." I answered lowering my lips to the crook of her neck.
"Well, I do believe you should put me down or you will be giving a show to the eight vampires that are sitting on the deck."
I swung us around and faced of with the others. Carlisle, Esme, Jasper and Charlotte all were politely looking away with small smiles. Emmett and Rose had huge grins, while Bells looked both happy and sad, if that was possible. Peter was standing beside Charlotte and she had an iron grip across his mouth. I could only imagine what he would say.
"Uh, hi everyone." I lowered Keeki to the floor and pulled her to my side, tucking her against me. I couldn't help but notice how perfectly she fit under my arm. It was if we were made for each other.
Keeki waved at the peanut gallery and turned towards the family room, pulling me along behind her. "They can come talk to us when they are ready. I need to tell them about the Volturi and their intent." Her hand tightened around mine as she spoke.
"I would ask you to tell me more, but we may as well wait for the others. Rose already knows though?"
"Yes, I told her earlier when she was helping me with my leg. I can only assume she told Emmett, they don't keep any secrets. Well, he doesn't anyway." She answered as we settled in one of the loveseats.
"Do you have any specific gifts?" I asked.
"No, I do not. I am just your regular, run of the mill vampire." She smiled and I swear it took my breath away. She had the smallest dimple right under her left eye when she had a full smile going. It was both beautiful and adorable at the same time.
"You know Charlie, you haven't asked me how I knew it was you in the woods." She turned to face me as she spoke.
"Yeah, that's right, you did call me by name." I had totally forgotten that. "So, how did you know?"
"Well, before I left to come here I thought it would be best if I knew what they others in Rose and Emmett's coven looked like. I had heard of the Carlisle, Esme and Jasper but never met them. And when I found out about Bella, I decided to look you up too." She paused and dipped her head. "You know, I thought you were very handsome from the first time I saw your picture. Dare I say… you look very sexy in your uniform." Yep, she would be blushing if she could.
And I would have been too.
"Dad. Can we come in now?" Bella called from out on the deck. She knew it was fine, it wasn't like they couldn't hear us talking.
"Sure Bells. Keeki has some things she needs to talk about."
"I hate this. I don't want to bring any more bad news to this wonderful family." I took her hand and gave it a squeeze as everyone filed in.
"What news?" Asked Jasper, pulling my daughter down on his lap.
"Bad news. But don't worry the Chief will handle it." Peter answered. "Right Charlie?"
I began to shake my head, but then stopped. This was what Peter had been talking about when he said there was going to be a change in the vampire world.
I was going to be on the one to defeat the Volturi.
