Here it is! I decided to post it! This is a story in Renesmee's POV, but might switch on and off with Jacob's POV as well. This story is a continuation of Breaking Dawn IF Jacob had to run with Renesmee. This may or may not mean that all or some of the Cullens die. I am not going to give any of that away, but most of you should know me well enough to know what I can and can't write ;).
I don't want to read any reviews yelling at me to NOT kill this person off or NOT kill that person off. I already know where this story is going to go, and if I recieve a review yelling at me for changing the ending of Breaking Dawn--I will be blocking you.
I thought long and hard whether or not to post this story, but I think once you get into it, you will find it interesting. If you have read my other fics, then you should know me well enough to know that I throw in some big twists... this story will be full of them. One of the twists, many of you who have read the first chapter already [thank you for the feedback!] have guessed it. I'm not mentioning who thought of it, but there was quite a few of you.
I would also like to thank Shante for helping me out A LOT with this story. I seriously don't know what I would do without her!
I think that's about it, so enjoy the story and I look forward to reading what you have to say, and I have quite a few reviewers who never let me down!
Thank you to all who voted in the poll. That helped me out a lot.
Also, remember at this point in time Renesmee is only the size of a 5 year old, so my writing is trying to sound like a little girl, as well as keeping the maturity there. Since Renesmee is more mature than other 5 year olds.
It all happened so fast that it felt like a dream, but I couldn't wake up from it. I clung to my mother, not fully understanding that it was the last time her arms would wrap perfectly around me.
I tried holding onto her tighter, but she was too strong for me. She reached up and loosened my arms around her neck, forcing me to lean back so I was looking at her face. I studied every feature, knowing this could be the last time I ever saw her.
"You remember what I told you?"
I wanted to flip out of her arms and run towards the bad vampires. It was me they wanted to kill. I was the freak--the misfit in their world. But I knew no one standing around me would let me get very far. I was a child and had no say in any of this. So instead, I let the tears well up in my eyes and nodded. "I love you," I whispered, touching her face to reinforce my words with pictures.
"I love you, too," she said, reaching for my locket, holding the only picture I had of proof of my parents. My parents that were handing me off to a werewolf for protection. Parents who are giving up their lives to keep me alive. She smiled as if she was reading my thoughts. "More than my own life." She kissed my forehead.
I heard Jacob wine uneasily beside her. He was going to have a hard time leaving, too. My mother and Jacob had a friendship that was rare, and now he had to leave her.
My mom reached up on her toes to whisper into Jacob's large ear. "Wait until they're totally distracted, then run with her. Get as far from this place as you possibly can. When you've gone as far as you can on foot, she has what you need to get you in the air."
The small bag on my back suddenly felt like it weighed over a hundred pounds. Up until now I didn't think of what could be in there.
I felt my dad stiffen behind me, his chest colder against my back. I turned in my mom's arms to reach for him. He took me in his arms without hesitation. For the moment I felt safe as he held me tight to his chest.
"This is what you kept from me?" My dad whispered over my head. I dug my face in his neck to try and stop the tears from escaping.
"From Aro," she corrected him.
"Alice?" My dad asked her.
She was quiet, and I didn't want to pull away from my father just yet to see what she was doing.
Too soon he loosened my arms and cupped my face in his hands, kissing my forehead and both my cheeks. He lifted me onto Jacob's back, and I horridly scrambled into place.
My body trembled from Jacob's grumbles that were vibrating his entire body.
"You're the only one we could ever trust her with," I closed my eyes as I listened to my mom's voice. "If you didn't love her so much, I could never bear this. I know you can protect her, Jacob."
I let go of the fur on his neck when he leaned his head down to butt his nose against her shoulder.
Both my parent's said their goodbye's to Jacob. I couldn't tell which was worse--hearing them say goodbye to Jacob, or saying goodbye to me.
"Is there no hope then?" My grandfather--the most gentle person I would ever meet in all my life. I would never look up to someone the way I do to him. Carlisle is the head of our family, and besides my parents, I will miss him the most. I smiled slightly to myself. What I would give to have him come towards me tomorrow with measuring tape. As much as I hated having to be measured. I would do it every day for the rest of my life if it meant keeping him alive.
"There is absolutely hope," my mom murmured. "I only know my own fate."
I laid flat on Jacob's back, hiding my face in his fur as I tried to keep my crying silent. The only one that noticed was Jacob, he turned his head slightly, whimpering. I reached up, touching the side of his head, letting my mom's last words echo in his head. I threw in my guilt all over her words. It was my fault.
Jacob shook his head, grunting. For once, he didn't like what I was showing him. I let my hand fall and dangle at his side.
As far as I understood, my mother was still able to protect us all. I wasn't sure what the other side was capable of, and I didn't want to know.
Aro spoke, I could barely pay attention. My head was spinning, I felt like someone was pulling a rug out from under my feet. My ears were ringing so loud, I don't think I would be able to hear my parents if they were to talk to me. I hid my face once more, and clapped my hands over my ears.
It seemed like forever, and I was hoping it was over. I felt a cold hand touch my leg. I sat up quickly to see my mother's frantic eyes gazing into mine as she shoved Jacob back.
"Go!" Her voice raised high enough to cause Jacob to whimper.
I peeled my eyes away from my mom to see Aro's guard stalking towards us, all of their eyes on me.
They voted. I die.
"No," I whimpered, sliding off Jacob's back. I don't know where the sudden urge to throw myself into the line of fire came from, but I knew I wouldn't get far. I had to try. I leaped to the ground on the opposite side of where my parents stood.
"Emmett grab her!" I heard my mom yell. She leaped over Jacob, but I fell to my knees, crawling between legs until someone clasped onto my ankle, pulling me back.
"Let her come." Caius smirked. It made me shudder.
"No," My dad growled, putting me back on Jacob's back. My entire family merged into one line in front of us. My mother and father in the center, directly in front of Jacob and I. "You have to get through us."
"Edward, you're making this more difficult then it has to be. Hand over the child and we will be on our way." Felix chuckled, his evil laugh sending chills down my spine.
"No." The entire line of my family and friends said at once. The wolves stepped closer to their backs as they growled.
Felix stepped directly in front of my mother, I covered my mouth so I wouldn't scream out in terror.
My dad took a half step, placing himself partially in front of my mom.
"You touch her and I will rip you apart." My dad's snarls were fierce. I've never seen him that mad. It made him look scary.
Before my dad could react Felix reached out and slapped my mom on her cheek. Jacob took a step forward along with the other wolves at our sides.
I couldn't hold back the gut wrenching scream as I watched my father lunge for Felix at the same time the rest of the guard filed in, attacking my family. My mom spun around too quick for me to register at first. She shoved Jacob once again.
"I love you both, always remember that. Jacob she's yours. Protect her with everything you've got." She gave one last shove and Jacob leaped away from her.
He stood frozen as he stared at his pack, they gave a quick glance and nudged him with their noses, before turning to fight.
"Momma!" I cried out as loud as I could, reaching for her as Jacob turned, without taking one last glance behind him, and ran as fast as he could.
