Jacob Comes to Visit
AN: I hope the surprises I gave you guys were all you were hoping for. But will it all be easy sailing now? READ AND SEE!
I woke up when the sun hit my eyes.
At first I was sure it had all been a dream. But then as I stretched I felt those strong, cold hands start rubbing my back.
I rolled over to see him laying there with his head held up by his hand smiling at me.
I put out my hand and started stroking his cheek.
He closed his eyes and turned his head to kiss my hand.
"So it wasn't a dream?" I asked.
"Come here." he whispered as he wrapped me in his arms.
He looked me in the eye and said with the most sincere and serious look I have ever seen from him "I swear to you Bella, it wasn't a dream. I'm really here, I really am staying and I really do love you and this baby."
I could feel the tears swell in my eyes. I kissed him and just laid there with him for a while.
I then started to feel my legs cramp so I knew I had to get up.
"I gotta get up and shower." I told him as I sat up and took off the covers.
"OK then, I'll go downstairs and start breakfast for you. Anything you can't eat?" He asked while I got my clothes for the day.
"Only bacon and eggs." I said casually.
Suddenly I remembered Charlie didn't know he was here.
"Wait! Charlie doesn't know you're here. You can get in big trouble!" I said quickly.
He just stood up smiling, came over to me and kissed my head.
"Don't worry, he left for work a few hours ago. He came in to check on you but he didn't see me."
"OK then." I said as grabbed my robe and started taking off my pajamas.
Suddenly Edward jumped up and walked towards the door.
"What?" I asked.
He just stood there with his face towards the door.
"Let's just say that if I don't leave now it could be a long time before you get to that shower and I get downstairs." He said.
I decided to tease him a bit. So I walked up behind him, wrapped my arms around him and pressed into him.
"Do you want to join me in the shower?" I asked in as sultry of a voice as I could.
I heard him take a deep breath to control himself.
"Honestly Bella, I would love to join you, but not until I have a ring on your finger." He said.
I suddenly realized what he said.
"Edward, do you mean that-?" I couldn't finish the question because I was in too much shock.
He turned around and looked at me.
"Yes Bella, I mean that I have every intention of marrying you and making you Mrs. Edward Cullen." He said.
I was somewhere between excited and shocked. I knew that he had sworn to help me raise the baby but I didn't realize he had planned on marrying me.
He looked at me with concern.
"Are you ok Bella?" He asked.
It took me a second to collect my thoughts.
"Yeah I'm ok Edward. Just didn't expect that." I said looking down and smiling.
I felt his hand touch my chin to raise it. He raised my head to have me look at him.
"You didn't expect me to want to marry you?" He asked looking confused.
"No, I did. I just didn't expect you to tell me this suddenly is all." I said rather quickly.
"Bella, I love you, and there's nothing I'd love more than to marry you and make you mine, forever." He said.
"Forever meaning forever, forever?" I asked.
I had been after him for a while now to turn me but he always refused. Was he finally giving in?
"I mean forever, forever." He said. "But honestly I'd like to wait until after the baby's born so no harm comes to her and after we're married ok? Can you wait just a few more months?" He asked.
"A few more months til forever? I can live with that." I said.
Suddenly a thought occured to me.
"But what about her? Will you give her the opportunity as well?" I asked.
"When she is of age I will give her the opportunity to join you and me in immortality. And it will be entirely her choice." He said with a smile.
I hugged him once more.
"But right now, I need to go fix you breakfast and you need to take your shower." He said as he opened the door.
He was shutting the door and suddenly opened it again.
"Oh, and I love you too." He said with a smile.
I knew he didn't need to read my mind to know that one.
After my shower and some breakfast me, Alice and Edward sat down to watch some TV.
Suddenly Edward said something that kinda surprised me.
"So I noticed Jacob hasn't been around alot." He said.
I didn't look up from the TV as I responded.
"He's kinda avoided the place since Alice came back. And the night she told me you were coming home was the last time I saw him. I think he's mad at me for taking you back."
"Well, I'd like to talk to him as soon as possible." He said.
I looked at him with total shock on my face.
"What? Why?" I asked.
"I just want to talk to him that's all. Can you think of any way he may come over here?" He asked casually.
"Well, I could text him telling him I need him to come over here as soon as possible. I don't know if he'll respond though." I said.
"He will." Alice suddenly said.
Edward smiled and looked at her.
"One of the perks of having a psychic in your house." He said.
We all laughed at that.
So I sent Jacob a text.
'Jacob, it's Bella, can you come here ASAP?'
A few seconds later I got a response.
'Why? What's wrong?'
'I just need you to come over immediately.' I responded.
'OK, I'll b there in a few.' was his response.
"He's on his way." I said as we got back to watching the show.
About half an hour later I heard a knock at the door.
Alice got up to get it since right now getting up and getting to the door took about 3 to 5 minutes depending on how fast I could get up.
"Are you sure about this Edward?" I asked as I heard Jacob come in.
He just kissed me and smiled.
Jacob came around the corner and saw me and Edward cuddled up on the couch.
If looks could kill we would have both been dead on the spot.
"I knew this was a mistake. I shouldn't have come here. I'm out of here." He said and started walking towards the door.
"Jacob, please, give us a chance to explain." Edward said as Jacob headed toward the door.
I then heard footsteps walking back into the living room.
He sat down in Charlie's chair.
"You've got 5 minutes. Talk." was all he said.
"Jacob, you have to understand, the only reason I left was because I thought it was best for Bella. I just wanted her to have a happy, normal life. Then Alice came back to visit Bella and told everyone back in California that Bella said she was completely miserable without me. After that I realized what a huge mistake I made. After that realization I kept lying to myself by saying that it was better for her if I stayed away. But then I slowly realized that I was as miserable as she was. So I decided to come home. On the day I came home Bella told me about the baby. While I admit it's a total shock and I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I'm going to be a father in a few months, I have sworn to both Charlie and Bella that I'm going to take responsibility for my actions and help out Bella as much as I possibly can. I have also sworn to Bella that I will never leave her side again unless she commands me to leave and never return. I know that Bella really values her friendship with you and that's why I asked you over here. I hope you can overlook your hatred of me for Bella's sake."
After Edward had finished his little speech Jacob just sat there, put his head down, then looked back up at us with complete vindictiveness in his face.
"Your 5 minutes are up." he said as he stood up.
"And I'm leaving." he said as he walked towards the door.
I quickly got up (with Edward's help).
I turned towards the door just as Jacob opened it.
"Jacob wait. I know you're really mad at both of us right now. Just...please know that my door and my phone line are always open to you. Please Jacob, you're my best friend." I said as he held the doorknob in his hand.
He stood there for a second before he walked out the door slamming it behind him.
I walked back over and just let Edward hold me as I silently cried and wondered what the future now held for me and Jacob.
Well, what do you guys think? Let me know people!
