Chapter 97 - Twinkle like the Stars

Rose and Jasper's party continued throughout the night at the Cullen home. After eating cake they went back to opening more gifts, Jake staying off to the side, away from Rose. While Jasper had told him it was fine and not to worry about it, Jake still wanted to keep his distance from Rose for a bit. Edward tried to get him to talk to Rose, but Jake reminded Edward that he had told him about his first meeting with her and he did not feel like being punched or slapped in the face. However, after Rose and Jasper received their gift from Carlisle and Esme, there was nothing that could have ruined her night.

"I can't, I can't believe it." Rose looked up at them.

"I uh... I don't know what to say." Jasper was at a loss for words.

"We know how you both have always worked so hard," Esme went over and pulled Rose into a hug. "We just wanted to help you so that maybe you could just work a little less."

"Thank you, thank you both." Jasper went over and shook Carlisle's hand.

Carlisle and Esme had paid off the remainder of their home loan. Their house was now truly theirs.

"Well... it's a bit hard to top this, but..." Emmett jumped in. "Here you go." He handed Jasper his gift.

Jasper began to open it, and then looked up at Emmett. "Wow."

"I know, right." Emmett grinned.

"See! I knew he'd like it!" Edward told Bella.

"Yeah it's great! Now I can teach it to attack." Jasper took out his Pet Rock.

"Attack?" Emmett looked puzzled.

"Yeah. Watch." Jasper took the rock out and then made a motion as if he was going to throw it at Emmett."

"HEY!" Emmett dashed behind Rose.

"No rough housing in the house now," Esme laughed.

"Yes, if you want to teach your pet to attack our son, please do so outside." Carlisle laughed.

"That's ok, I'm going outside anyways," Emmett took Rose by the hand. "I want to give her my present in private thank you very much."

Rose looked at him surprised.

"Come on," Emmett pulled her by the hand.

"What did he get her?" Jasper asked the rest.

Everyone shrugged, Emmett had not told anyone anything. Not even Edward had managed to get it out of him, so they just all sat back and watched them head out the front door.


"Emmett, where are we going?" Rose asked as they walked a bit down a small path into the woods.

"Just right... there." Emmett pointed to a small opening, flowers all around, and a blanket laying on the ground.

"Em, it's beautiful." Rose's eyes lit up. "But I am not having sex with you on the ground while everyone is in your house." She laughed.

"That is not what this is." Emmett grinned. "But not gonna lie, that had crossed my mind." He took Rose over and they sat down on the blanket. "I know things haven't always been great with us, we have our issues, but this last year or so between me and you things have been great I think. Perfect actually." He laid back and motioned for Rose to do the same. They laid there on their backs looking up at the stars in between a small clearing in the trees.

"You see those stars up there?" Emmett asked moving his head to the side to stare at Rose.


"Your eyes twinkle like that. When you are so happy, or when you are sad, or when you are just awake. Your eyes twinkle like the stars. I love that. I love you." Emmett told her.

Rose began to get teary eyed.

"Nope. None of that." Emmett sat up and then stood, pulling Rose up with him.

"I love you too." Rose told him.

"I hope you do cause, well," Emmett took her hand and knelt down on one knee.

Rose froze.

"I was hoping that maybe, you'd wanna make this permanent. Will you marry me?" Emmett took out a ring from his pocket.

Rose had tears falling from her eyes, a few moments passing.

"Marry me Rose." Emmett stood up, placing the ring on her finger.

Rose looked down at her hand, and then up into Emmett's eyes. "Yes. God yes!" She jumped up onto Emmett, kissing him, at first gently, and then a bit more passionately.

"Yes. Yes. Yes." She began to push him down onto the ground.

"Rose... don't... not if..."

"Screw the party." Rose straddled him.

"Fuck." Emmett mumbled as he went to pull her shirt off, but stopped. "No."

"What?" Rose looked confused.

"Believe me babe. This right now... totally in for it but... do you really wanna go back in there looking like we just you know, when you know you are gonna be dying to tell my sister? My mom? Everyone?"

Rose thought it over, before giving Emmett another kiss and then getting up off of him.

"I love you." Rose told him.

"I know, now go on, run and tell them." Emmett smiled.

And she did just that. Emmett made a note to himself that Rose could run fast as hell over any terrain in heels so to make sure never to make her so mad he would have to try and outrun her.
