We all sat in the living room the next morning, I staying close to Alice while Jazz and Eddy stayed together, Carlisle stayed by Esme and Emmett and Rose stayed huddled together.
"Bella, maybe you should explain all this?" Carlisle nodded. I sighed and sat a little straighter.
"Rose, we're a family of Were-creatures. Emmett, Alice and I are Werewolves. Jazz and Edward are Werecats."
"Alice is a Werewolf…?"
"That's why my eyes changed, not to mention I'm a bit taller now," Alice explained gently. While she figured it out by herself, Rose was being told that her sister was now a Werewolf, and that wasn't even the worst of it.
"Why are you telling me this?"
"Because you and Alice are in grave danger. Your father is a Lycan. Basically, he's the evil counterpart of a Werewolf."
"My father left when I was young."
"No, sweetie. I left him. He scared me with his violence and anger. I didn't want to be his next victim." Esme hugged herself and I felt horrible. This was a terrible situation she had been thrown into and this couldn't be making it any better.
"How do I know this is true? That this isn't a big joke?"
"Can you handle the evidence?"
I lifted my sleeve and Alice pulled down her collar, showing our bites. A ripple took effect and suddenly my brothers stood, pulling their shirts off to show similar bites. Finally my father did the same. Rose's eyes flowed slowly from me to her sister, through my brothers and father, landing on Emmett. All the boys made it clear that their marks were showing. Emmett looked grim, a rare emotion for him.
"I wouldn't lie to you, Rosie," he whispered to her. This confirmed her belief and faith in what we were saying, her eyes growing soft.
"But why does Alice's bite look different than yours, Bella?"
"Your father bit her. I used my own saliva to counter his. In perfect world she would have stayed huma- ow!" I was cut off by a punch in the arm from Alice. She crossed her arms and pouted at me. "What?"
"This worked out."
She got on tip toe and whispered in my ear, "Because now I'm part of your world."
I grinned and chuckled. "I guess you're right." I kissed her cheek and addressed the group again. "Anyway, usually that counters the virus and eliminates both, however my virus overpowered the other and left its mark, no pun intended."
"Okay, so where does that put me?"
"You, Rose, are the only heir to the Lycan throne, seeing as Alice isn't a Lycan, nor a human and able to be a Lycan. That leaves you."
"I don't want to rule anything," she muttered. Emmett, still shirtless, sat down and hugged her.
"You can stay human, or you can ask one of us to change you. It's your choice," Emmett muttered back, trying to comfort her.
"I need to think about it."
"Fair enough," he smiled at her and she smiled back. I sat down and Alice snuggled next to me. I wrapped my arms around her and we decided that we would watch movies to help calm Rose down. It was the brief version but Rose had taken in a lot in a short time.
Want to hear the irony?
We watched cheesy black and white Werewolf movies.
Okay, so it was short, but Rose is caught up and you got to see the sweet side of Emmett! xD tell me what you think!
