Starlit

Story summary: AU set after BD. What if Jacob didn't imprint on Renesmee? What if, instead, a certain moody female werewolf did?

Author's note/disclaimer: I own nothing, except perhaps the idea of Leah imprinting on Renesmee. On a side note, in research for this, I reread the part of BD where Bella gives birth, and oh my God. I can't wait to see how they handle it for the movie.

Prologue – Jacob's POV

Warm brown eyes, the color of milk chocolate–the exact same color that Bella's had been.

My shaking jerked to a stop; heat flooded through me, stronger than before.

I'd never felt such rage, such pain, such sadness. I stared into those eyes, and I hated what I saw. It was a monster, but it was still a part of Bella. No matter how much I wanted to rip apart Bella's child, Bella's murderer, I couldn't.

The Bella upstairs was not my Bella anymore, but I still couldn't bring myself to do anything to hurt her.

I stared at Rosalie and the creature in her arms for a moment longer, before I turned and strode out the door.

And at the moment I walked out the door, I knew I'd never be walking back inside again.
