Mona crouched and let out a fierce growl. Just as she was coiled to strike she heard a voice behind her.
"Now now, Mona, seems you've forgotten that your outnumbered here." Lucy said teasingly. Mona straightened herself out and turned to the doorway she just walked through.
"So, its true you have become one of them." She said her voice dripping with disdain.
"Maybe maybe not." Lucy replied nonchalantly. She circled Mona until she was in front of her new family. "But I do know one thing "I've found my mate also." Her eyes darted to the doorway. "NOW!" Mona whirled around but not quick enough Chase jumped on top of her and decapitated her.
"NOOO!" Parker wailed. He fell to his knees broken. Emmett looked over at his brother. All earlier hatred and contempt lost. This was his brother. Regardless of present actions he still loved him. He knelt at his brothers side.
"Emmett." Rose warned. Emmett smiled over his shoulder to her and then turned back to his brother.
"Parker look, I am so sorry that this had to happen, but you could come and join our coven. We could be family again." He couldn't help the hope and longing that filled his voice. How many times had he dreamed that this moment would come. That he would be able to see his family again. It may be irrational to others but if the Cullens had taught him one thing it was family comes first, and Parker was family. His original family. He waited beside his brother.
"No." It was said so soft Emmett thought he didn't hear it.
"I'm sorry, what?" Emmett asked shocked.
"I said no. I do not want to be here...exist without her. Kill me." Parker looked up at his brother. The closest thing to tears in his eyes for vampires looking up at him. Begging him to die. "Kill me." He repeated. Everyone looked at each other uneasily wondering how Emmett would react. Emmett looked crushed.
"You would rather die then try to reconnect with me? The last of our family?"
"Don't make me do something I'll regret." Parker warned icily. Just then Alice gasped. Everyone turned to look at her.
"Emmett he's going to try to attack Rose so you'll kill him!" Alice spit out quickly. Emmett was up and in front of Rose in a heartbeat.
"Don't even think about it." He growled.
Jake and Nessie called Edward to invite him over to Jake's house and Charlie was meeting them there. That way they could be out of the way of everything that would be going down with Parker. The reason being that they wanted him to be there for some big news.
Jake and Nessie waited at Jakes house making small talk and joking around with Billy. Charlie stood by the counter watching the scene. Renesmee had the feeling he knew something was up. He seemed to be doing better accepting what they were, as he was given time to process things, but she knew there was a long way to go before he felt...normal with them again. Renesmee heard Edward approach before anyone else and knew something was wrong. He was mumbling something under his breath. She leaned over to Jake and whispered in his ear.
"Jake something is up with my dad...I think he is onto something." She hesitated and Jake looked into her eyes. He smiled at her. The type that made her heart melt.
"I know Ness, you don't want to lie to him. I'll tell him." He leaned over to kiss her. Renesmee grabbed his hand before he could get up to leave.
"Thank you." He squeezed her hand in response. He left out the front door to meet Edward. Edward was standing there looking at him.
"What aren't you telling me." Edward said angrily. Jacob looked at him amused.
"Your the mind reader you tell me." Edward let out a small growl. Jake shook his head.
"Ok, OK just trying to lighten the situation." He let out a sigh. "OK, they didn't want to tell you because they knew you didn't agree with the plan from the beginning. Jasper thought it was a good idea, and Alice knew it would work because it was the only scenario that worked out when she looked into the future."
Edward was losing his patience and he knew it..." What plan and what are you talking about it...make it quick." Just then Renesmee decided to walk outside and join them.
"Dad listen, they did it out of love and with the best intentions. Try to keep an open mind and just hear them out first." She projected to Jake. 'Did you ask yet?'
She saw him shake his head ever so slightly. "Then when you get back we can talk. Go, it should have started already." With one last long look at Jake and a kiss on the cheek for his daughter he was gone.
After she was sure he was out of earshot, even for a vampire, she asked him the question that was burning in her mind. "Jake! Why didn't you ask his permission to marry me."
"Ness, come on it was hardly the time for it." He laughed softly. "Trust me I wanted to but I want to do it right. Anyway...now your dad owes me one for foiling his families plan." He smiled and leaned in to wrap his arms around her. "Do you want to know why I love you so much?" She wrapped her arms around him in return and answered with a wink in her eye.
"Lets see, because I am amazing, one of a kind, keep you guessing." She laughed. "I have no idea, why."
"Well those are good reasons but I love you because you have a big heart, you care about everyone and everything. You accept people for who they are and protect those you love with all you have. I can't wait to start my life with you...soon to be Mrs. Black." She gasped those last words made her catch her breath. She smiled a bright gleaming smile at him.
"Mrs. Black...I like the sound of that."
"He's right you know. Trying to kill her would be a mistake. Although you could always go to the Volturi," Edward said his voice dripping with venom.
"Edward!" Bella gasped. "What are you-" She was silenced with a warning look from him.
Edward walked around the room nonchalantly, as if he didn't have a care in the world. His carefree attitude had Bella worried. Edward walked over to him and crouched in front of him. "The way I see it you have two choices." His voice was menacing, the scariest Bella had ever seen him. "You can join our coven, which Emmett has so gratefully offered." He glanced at his brother. "Or you can go to the Volturi and confess you transgressions and be killed." He paused briefly. "I should warn you though, you double cross us again I will kill you myself, Emmetts brother or not." He looked to see Emmetts reaction. He nodded then seemed to find his voice.
"He's right Parker. I'm sorry but were giving you a big pass here. I mean you tried to take his mate, succeeded in taking his daughter and he still is willing to accept you into the family." He paused waiting to see if Parker would respond. When he didn't he continued. "Its up to you brother. What will it be?"
