Title: To be Human Again
Chapter 9: Take me as I am
Rosalie came over to the house with a smile. "Hey guys!" She said as everyone gazed over at her, looking sad. She looked around, "Where's Emmett?"
"He left for the day." Alice said looking angry. "He doesn't want to see you anymore."
"Oh." Rosalie said looking at the ground.
"Alice don't be so mean." Esme scolded. "The truth is Rosalie, he misses you more than he will let on. We all miss you."
"I'm sorry, but I am starting a new life as a human." Rosalie said. "I miss you guys too. I just have to grab something from our room."
"Don't you mean Emmett's room?" Alice shot at her. "Jasper wants to be human too but you don't see him leaving me to do you?"
Rosalie nodded, knowing not to go after an angry Alice. She started walking up the stairs. She walked into her old room looking around; nothing had changed except the pile of photo albums spread on the floor. She went over to her old dresser picking up the first necklace that Emmett ever bought her. He had wrote a love poem that day too, she opened it up to read.
'When I first saw you,
I thought you were an angel.
That you were sent here
To relieve my pain and suffering.
But as I grow to know you more,
I realize all that has changed.
I can't say what got into me,
You are like the world and more,
I would do anything,
To spend just one more minute with you.
I would do anything,
To see your face every second of the day.
What I am saying is,
You relieved me of my grief,
You allowed me to find the good in life.
I love you more than you can ever think.
I love you,
She got tears in her eyes from reading that, she never could cry when reading that and it felt so much more special to finally be able to cry. He had wrote in his poem that he would do anything for her and yet he wasn't anywhere to be seen.
She was about to walk out when she decided to take one last look at the closet. She opened it to find a letter pined to the wall, it read,
I am sorry for anything that I did to make you decide not to live with me forever. I can't give you everything but if you ever change your mind, please know that I will allow you back into my life.
Who am I kidding? I miss you more than I ever missed anything else. I would give up fighting grizzlies forever just to have you back into my life. I chose not to be human because I enjoy knowing that I am strong enough to take care of myself and family. The only thing is, I found out after you left, I'm not strong enough without you by my side. I really want to talk to you about this before it's too late. Please come to our spot after reading this if you wish to talk. I will be there until eight tonight, I just want to talk for a bit. I want to talk about us.
P.S. I plan on not coming back here if you don't come so please tell the others I said good bye and I will miss them all.'
She reread the note several times and then looked at her watch, it was five o'clock already. It took them an hour and a half to get to their spot as a vampire but she had no clue how long it would take as a human. She ran down the stairs, shooting past her family and started to run into the woods. She had no time to explain to them what was going on.
She started to run through the woods, heaving, as she made it through the thick forest. She didn't realize how much easier it was as a vampire. Twenty minutes in, she started to slow down; this wasn't going to work as a human. She took the bracelet off and stuck it into her pocket. She just had to walk as a human for an hour now and then she could run there. She had to get to Emmett in time, or risk loosing him forever.
She couldn't do that to a man who obviously loved her more than anything else. "I'm coming." She yelled out through heaves as she tried to make her way through the thick forest.
Emmett sat on the cliff, playing with the bracelet around his wrist. The sun was setting, it was almost eight o'clock and she had yet to show up.
Maybe it just wasn't meant to be. He was willing to go such a great distance for her, he would buy her everything under the sun. He would buy her the sun if she had asked. Yet, she found one thing he couldn't give her and she left him.
He looked over the cliff, it was such a long fall. He wasn't thinking of suicide but he did wonder what it would be like to be able to jump from such heights as a human. To know that at the bottom would be your untimely death. Would his Rose even care?
He stood up, still staring over the cliff. He could test it out. Just one jump and then he could find out what happened after death. He already cheated death once, could he do it again?
Then he heard footsteps behind him, he turned around to see Rosalie walking out of the woods. Her hair messy for the first time since he had ever seen her. He couldn't believe it, she was back to being a vampire.
"Emmett, I got your message." She said running up to him and hugging him. Emmett couldn't believe how cold she felt as a vampire compared to him being human. She then realized how warm he felt and backed away from him, "You're human."
"Yes, I realized I couldn't live without you so I decided that I can live with you." He said before getting down on one knee, still holding her hand in his. "Please Rosalie, take me as I am. Allow me into your human life. I said I would do anything for you, please let me prove it to you."
"I can't." Rosalie said to Emmett, making him look hurt. She then smiled and cupped his cheek and forced him to look her in the eyes, "I can't because when I read your message, I realized that I was forcing you to give up everything that you are to be with me. That's not fair to do."
"But you are giving up your chance to have a family and children." Emmett told her. "You have always wanted that."
Rosalie shook her head, "I have a family right here and I have my child, he just happens to also be my husband."
"You mean it?" Emmett looked more than excited.
"Yes, Emmett will you take me back as I am?" Rosalie asked pulling the bracelet out of her pocket.
"I always will!"
Rosalie then took off the bracelet from Emmett's wrist. Together they threw them off the cliff.
Rosalie watched as they dropped, "I love you."
Emmett smiled, "I love you too!" he said hugging her.
"Let's tell the family the good news." Rosalie said as they got out of their embrace.
"I think they already know." Emmett said as they saw the whole family was walking toward them.
After everyone was over the shock of Rosalie being back, they all started to walk toward the house.
Emmett looked at Rosalie, "You got your ears pierced." He said, cupping her ear in his hand.
"Yes, I have always wanted to get my ears pierced." She smiled, "Guess, it won't last once I take them out." They all knew that once she took the earrings out, her ears would heal instantly.
"I love you with or without your ears pierced." Emmett said hugging her.
Who knows where this life could take them? Who knows if they made the right choice to stay vampires. What they did know was that they had the family they needed and the family they wanted right here.
Without realizing it, their messed up group of outcasts turned into one huge family, each with their own roles. Mother (Esme), father (Carlisle), siblings and children (Rosalie, Emmett, Edward, Alice and Jasper).
Their family was complete and there was nothing they could do to change that, except, when they truly brought Bella into their messed up family of misfits.
The old saying was true, sometimes you don't know what you got until it's gone. They knew now though and they all knew that this life wasn't as bad as they had thought it to be. Welcome to their life and their family. They were different than anything out their and they were fine with that.
Hope you guys enjoyed it.
I also hope that it didn't go too fast. I am great at plots but I'm not so great at ending stories. Everyone has their happy endings…kinda. If you liked this, please go read my other stories =P I have one that made over 100 reviews in seven chapters!
