Chapter 36: Godparents
I just finished getting myself clean. I decided to take a quick shower because I didn’t like the way I smelt at all. I was so frustrated with myself. Not only because I couldn’t change a diaper but because of the fact that I got frustrated with my own son. After I was done I went back up to mine and Jacob’s room because we still needed to talk to Paul and Rosalie.
E: You know it’s not polite to laugh at other people’s misfortune.
P: Not when it has to do with you.
E: You’re mean. Jake do you really think we made the right choice with him?
P: It was part your decision and you had your reason for choosing him.
E: But can we just choose someone else?
J: You could. I’m not going through that whole process again.
R: Have you forgotten that we are also in the room? (She asked suddenly feeling left out)
P: Yeah, it’s like you’ve forgotten that we even exist.
E: That would be a lovely.
P: You’d miss me too much.
E: Jacob can’t I just make him disappear I promise no one will ever know what happened to him.
R: I’ll even help you.
P: You can’t kill me you would be giving the guys a reason to finally kill you.
E: No, I don’t think so. I think they will be too busy cheering about the fact that they don’t have to deal with you anymore to care about what I did.
P: I’m gonna go now if you guys are done messing with me. Why did you even call me up here?
E: Oh, Jake and I would like to ask you both something.
J: But you can say no if you want to, we won’t hold it against you.
R: Can you tell us what it is before you decide we’re going to say no.
E: Okay. Jacob and I have put a lot of thought into this. There were a lot of things that we had to consider before we choose the two most suitable people.
J: We would like for the two of you to be Anthony’s godparents but only if you want to.
R: Us? (She gasped) Why?
E: Well we’ve seen how both of you interact with Anthony and there is no doubt in our mind that you two are the best choice for this.
R: Thank you. I’d be honoured to be Anthony’s godmother. (She said as she got up and bends down to give Jacob a hug and Edward stood up and gave her a hug too)
P: What? (He said as he finally recovered from the initial shock of what he was being asked)
J: We want you to be Anthony’s godfather.
P: I heard that but why me? Why not Sam or even Seth?
J: Wouldn’t it be weird if Anthony’s future boyfriend and maybe even Husband was also his godfather huh?
E: And we wanted you, for some reason or another. I think I might have been drunk when I suggested him besides we spoke to Sam and he was okay with it as long as you guys know that he’ll always be watching over your shoulders like a hawk.
R: Like the two of you will too?
P: See I always knew you loved me deep down.
E: Yes. Deep deep down.
Anthony crawled further into Jacob chest and closed his eyes.
R: Aww, my godson wants to sleep.
E: No he doesn’t.
R: How do you know... (She was cut off)
J: Please don’t ask that question. I am so tired of hearing his smug answer. He probably read Anthony’s mind or something.
R: So what does he want if he doesn’t want to sleep then?
E: I can see very vivid images of Jared and Embry?
R: Seth is his mate right?
P: Yeah. (He smiled)
E: Jake it’s nothing like that, he just likes playing with them.
P: Just like Jake use to.
R: Oh do tell.
J: Paul shut up.
R: No don’t I want to know.
P: Well Jake use to... Nah, I’m just kidding they were just friends.
E: Paul. (He warned)
E: Really, are we back to that again?
P: Only for as long as you keep threatening me.
E: I only want you to stop bothering my Husband.
P: Oh but Jake enjoys it.
J: No I don’t.
P: Shhh Jake.
Anthony started laughing along with them and they all just smiled.
E: Seth is one lucky guy.
P: Yeah he has more luck than I do.
E: What so you also want to imprint on a baby?
P: No that’s not what I mean.
J: Nah, I think Seth has always been the lucky one in the pack.
P: Yeah, I agree. Now he’s got his hands on the most beautiful baby.
E: He’s not going to have any hands if he puts ever puts his hands on my baby.
J: Ed, you know Seth wouldn’t ever do anything against our wishes right?
R: Yes even I agree with that.
E: I know. I’m just saying, one of us has to be the scary parent.
P: And you think it should be you? (He laughed clearly amused and Rosalie joined in and soft snickering could be heard from Jacob)
E: My own Husband.
P: Yeah, your Husband doesn’t think you’re scary enough.
E: Paul, what are you still doing in my bedroom because I don’t want you in here?
P: I’m here visiting my godson and my brother.
R: Wait, Edward if Paul is Jacob’s brother then isn’t he your brother-in-law now that the two of you are married?
E: No! Absolutely not!
J: Yes, that’s true.
P: Just admit that you’re happy that I’m your brother-in-law.
E: Thank you but I’m very happy with my real brothers.
P: There is nothing real about you or your brother’s mister.
E: I already regret my decision.
P: I love you too Edward.
R: So where did the other mutts go?
P: I don’t know. They went running and Sam told me that I needed to stay. I wondered why he didn’t want me to go with but now I get it.
P: Oh and where is Alice I haven’t seen her since we ate earlier?
R: She left a while before the wolves ran.
J: Where to?
R: I don’t know but I got this feeling that she didn’t want me to go with her.
J: So you wanted to go with her?
R: No not today it’s just that she normally asks me to go with her if she’s going alone even though I say no.
E: She left because she wanted us to be alone and so did Sam.
R: How did Alice know about this but I didn’t?
E: She can see into the future dear sister.
R: Continue talking like that and your dear sister will do something to your Husband.
J: Why me. I didn’t do anything to you.
R: But Edward is virtually indestructible.
J: So you’d hurt me? I’ve always been so good to you. (He faked cried)
R: No, Edward would probably see it before I did it then he’d most probably kill me.
E: Yeah, most probably.
R: Shut up.
Anthony crawled off of Jacob and crawled over to the edge of the bed so Edward could take him.
E: Hey big boy. I hope you’re not mad at me for abandoning you earlier.
R: If he was he wouldn’t go near you. Believe me I know.
J: What happened?
R: Let’s just say that it isn’t a good idea to try and take him away from his grandparents, all three of them.
E: But I still feel bad about just walking out on him like that.
J: It’s not like you up and left, so stop banging yourself up, Ed.
P: Plus he was in good hands.
E: Thank you for that Paul.
P: Sure thing, brother-in-law.
E: Now he got me a new name.
As they finished laughing they heard the front door opening.
