Chapter 33: What's In A Name???
J: Okay, so I was thinking that we use something… (He cut himself off)
E: Something what?
J: It’s okay, you won’t like it.
E: How will I not like it if you don’t tell me?
J: Uhm. It’s just that my father and I both have the same middle name. It’s a tradition that my father started and I just always thought that I’d continue with it.
E: Jake… (He was cut off)
J: It was a way to honour him for all that he did. It’s okay we don’t have to do it.
E: Breathe, now let me talk. We have a son, why can’t he use your family name?
J: I thought… maybe you wouldn’t want it.
E: Jacob, it’s a wonderful name and it would be an honour if our son had it. Hopefully he’ll live up to it one day.
J: Yes hopefully, so you’re okay with it?
J: Thank you.
E: Anytime. (He said kissing Jacob) So what about a first name?
J: Well I was thinking about using your name?
E: Edward Jr? (He asked clearly amused)
J: No, Anthony. I did some research and Rosalie told me.
J: Yes, I went downstairs to the kitchen with my bulging belly and asked Esme’ and Rosalie.
E: That’s a lot of research, didn’t you get tired?
J: I did so Esme’ and Rosalie made me food for me- only coz I was pregnant of course.
E: Of course. (He joked)
J: Hey it’s true.
E: Yeah, I’m sure of that.
J: You are a mean Husband.
E: Nope. I’m a loving Husband.
J: Dream on.
E: My life is but a dream, Jake.
J: I married a freak.
E: You married a vampire.
J: I still can’t believe I did that.
Edward just nuzzled his nose against Jacob’s, their foreheads pressed together.
Jacob just blushed.
A: We have a surprise for you.
Se: A sweet little baby.
J: (Gasp) Bring him here. (He smiled)
E: I’ll get up.
J: No stay.
Se: Here he is.
J: Thank you.
S: He’s beautiful.
J: Thank you.
B: So have you guys thought of a name yet?
Em: Because we can’t continue calling him Baby Jake.
C: It’s true.
J: We decided on a name.
B: What is it?
E: Anthony Ephraim Cullen Black.
J: Dad is that okay?
B: Absolutely. I didn’t think you’d consider it.
J: It’s tradition Ephraim started.
E: And Jacob wanted to continue it in his honour.
B: Thank you son.
J: It’s the lease I can do.
Es: It’s a beautiful name.
E: Thank you.
P: Okay we get where the name Ephraim comes from but where does Anthony come from?
J: It’s Edward’s name.
The wolves looked confused.
E: It was my name before I was changed.
Se: Then where does Edward come from?
E: I was Anthony Edward Mason.
Q: Mason huh? Jacob Mason. (He laughed)
J: Yeaah. Sounds weird like that but it would sound amazing if it was Jacob Mason Black.
R: Yeah, that sounds amazing.
P: Say it sounds cool, Rosalie. What’s up with vamps and not wanting to use slang?
E: We are from a time where nobody used slang.
Em: Speak for yourself because I use slang.
Emb: You’re the only one.
R: We use slang too.
P: Not as much and well as the rest of us.
J: Okay guys we just named our son and you’re arguing about slang.
R: Forgive us.
J: The person getting married to him one day is very lucky.
Seth started choking even though he wasn’t eating or drinking anything.
E: Seth, are you okay? (He asked with the famous Edward Cullen smirk on his face)
J: Hey, it’s not funny, he’s choking.
C: Should we leave?
Se: Nah, stay.
Es: Okay we will, don’t worry honey. (She said walking over to Seth)
Se: Jake, Paul said that I should do this while you’re still recovering and also while the rest of the family is present.
J: Do what?
Se: Jake, I… I imprinted.
J: Congrats! But I still don’t get why you NEEDED to do it now.
Se: Jacob, I imprinted on Anthony.
Se: Jake, I promise it didn’t happen on purpose.
J: You imprinted on my son. (He said laughing through the burning tears forming in his eyes not really believing anything)
Edward got up from his place next to Jacob.
E: Jacob you need to calm down.
J: Really Seth, couldn’t you have imprinted on someone else?
Se: Jake, I didn’t mean to.
J: But you did.
S: Jacob you have to remember that you imprinted on a vampire.
P: Our greatest enemy.
Q: But we still accepted you.
Jar: And your imprint.
E: Guys let him think.
J: Anthony, you just haaaaad to allow him to imprint on you. You were just born yet you’ve already started causing trouble.
P: He’s been causing trouble ever since the day he was born.
E: Paul, leave my son alone.
P: Yes daddy.
B: Son, are you going to say anything?
J: Seth you imprinted on my baby. I know how it feels to imprint. I even know how it feels to not be wanted by your mate
E: I’m sorry.
J: It’s okay and I also know that the love that a wolf has for their imprint. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I cannot actually do anything about you but I’m warning you, stay away from my son.
The werewolves and vampires started laughing.
Se: But you just said… (He was cut off)
E: That’s not what he means, Seth. (He said with a smirk)
Se: Wh… Gross, Jake!
J: What, I have to look after my son’s best interest.
Se: You wolves are all the same.
E: But some are more special than others.
R: No one cares.
C: Let me check a few things then they can help you move around A BIT.
C: Sorry to bring this up but your blood trail helped us a lot, so how did you know that it wasn’t Edward?
J: It’s okay and he kept calling me babe.
J: My Husband calls me love.
Es: So Jake, why didn’t you scream for help or run?
J: I was scared for my baby’s life and I couldn’t phase, I didn’t have any powers plus I knew Edward and all of you would find me.
S: The faith of a wolf.
B: One of our best assets.
