A/N: Well I was hoping for some kind of comment on how you all feel about the direction of this story; but I got over 25 views (which is more than I can say for the stories I've been writing lately), so here's the next chapter :) Italicized segments come right from Breaking Dawn, as Bella and Jacob's wedding will be slightly similar to Bella and Edward's.
Two years later
Jacob and Bella agreed they'd have their wedding on the reservation. It was the place they had spent the most time after they'd met, and especially when they decided they wanted to get married. Jacob was off somewhere with Charlie and Billy while Renee helped Bella get ready. Bella's ankle length white dress was hanging over the door to Jacob's bedroom.
"Wait until your dad sees you," Renee said with a smile as she curled Bella's hair. "You are absolutely beautiful." She said trying not to tear up. "Are you sure you didn't want a veil? They always look so pretty."
"It's okay Mom, thank you." Bella replied softly.
"Are you ready? I'm happy for you and Jacob," she paused and leaned up against the seat Bella was sitting in. "To be honest, I actually thought you'd end up with Edward. You guys seemed to be magnetically connected when you fell through that window."
Bella shook her head, "Edward was a friend, while it lasted... But I'm with Jacob and I love him. He asked me to marry him two years ago and we've been planning this since then."
"Well, everything is wonderful Bella," she paused, "I might have asked you to wait until you graduated college, but you're twenty years and can make your own decisions."
"Thank you," Bella replied.
When Renee finished curling her hair, she delicately pulled the sides back and brushed her fingers along side Bella's neck.
"You look amazing Bella," a soft, gentle voice came from behind them. Renee and Bella turned around to see Alice standing there.
"Alice!" Bella stood up and hugged her. "What are you doing here?"
"I came to see you," she looked over Bella's shoulder and Renee with a smile and then pulled Bella closer to her as she whispered, "Edward didn't want me to come and I'm here even against my own better judgment, but I wanted to see you."
"But, that puts a breach in the treaty-" Bella started.
"They don't know I'm here. As far as I could tell all the dogs are getting ready for the wedding."
"Alice," she sighed, "please not today."
Alice nodded, "fair enough," she paused. "Anyway, I just wanted to tell you how good it was to see you and that I am happy for you; even if your choice doesn't make sense to me."
"Won't you stay for the ceremony? I want you to be here, you and Esme, Carlisle, Jasper, Rosalie and Emmett," she stated.
"And Edward," Alice filled in softly.
"You can be here. Come for me."
Alice shook her head, "that would go against the treaty we have with the pack, we can't do that... He wouldn't come anyway." She replied.
"Well, you better go."
Alice nodded and smiled as she hugged Renee, "I have to go. Bye Bella, you really do look beautiful." She walked out the front door of the house and out of what Bella felt was her entire life.
Bella had asked Jessica and Angela to be in the wedding, as well as Leah for a favor to Jacob. Quil, Embry and Seth had been the groomsmen that Jacob chose to walk the girls down the aisle. Bella's flat, ballerina type shoes helped her feel the grass with each step that she took. She wasn't the type of person to wear high heels and didn't want this day to be any different. Finally, after Embry and Angela walked down together, Charlie looked at Bella.
"Yeah," she let out a sharp exhale, "just don't let me fall, Dad."
"Never," Charlie replied giving a firm grasp on her arm. They walked down the aisle slowly watching the guests on either side. She saw Billy sitting in the front row, Sue Clearwater, and others she'd known from the reservation. On the left, she smiled when she past people from her high school, such as Mike Newton and some of their friends, Phil and Renee. As they got closer to Jacob, she saw his boyish grin and felt her own cheeks warming as she smiled and had to resist the urge to brush her fingers gently across it. Jacob took her hand from Charlie's and stared deep into her brown eyes as the minister spoke.
"Ladies and gentlemen, we are gathered here on this glorious day to witness the union of Jacob Black and Isabella Swan, please repeat after me. I, Jacob Black, take you Isabella Swan to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish for as long as we both shall live." Jacob stood in the middle of the reservation looking at Bella like they were the only two people there reciting his vows to her and gently squeezed her hands when he was done.
"Repeat after me, Bella. I, Isabella Swan, take you Jacob Black, to have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish as long as we both shall live." She repeated them with a soft and gentle smile spread across her lips.
"I love you Bella," Jacob whispered just loud enough for her to hear him.
"Not as much as I love you," she responded. As they kissed for the first time as husband and wife, their family and friends began clapping for them. They walked past everybody hand in hand with the bridal party behind them. The next hour or so was full of pictures and people rushing over and talking to them. Besides the cake that they fed each other while slicing it, the Blacks didn't get to eat. Renee walked over to them when they were sitting down.
"Take care of my daughter Jacob. Charlie trusts you and that really means something. Welcome to the family."
He smiled and nodded, "thank you. I'll take good care of her because I love her." Jacob stood up and hugged Renee. "I'm working on the reservation and Bella has a job in Seattle, but when we had some time to get away I've been trying to convince her to come see you in Jacksonville."
"I'd like that."
Bella started blocking out the noise around her as she looked at the wedding ring on her hand. It had finally happened, after all that time she and Jacob were finally together forever."
"Bella Black, I'm really married to Jacob." She thought as she looked over at Jacob and smiled.
