A Bridge Too Hard to Cross

Surprise! Surprise!

Leah's POV

Three months in. I sighed and got out of bed, looking beside me I saw Jacob still asleep. Yeah he'd slept over but he did that almost every night. I yawned; the good news about this morning is that I didn't have morning sickness anymore. I hopped over Jacob's legs onto my bedroom floor.

"I thought I was the one who would be still asleep," I mumbled as I left my room to get something to eat from the kitchen. When I got into the kitchen, I could see Seth had already gotten some of the food.

Eggs, Bacon, and French toast made its way to my nose. I was in food heaven now. I went over to the stove, grabbed my plate, and sat on the couch beside Seth.

"It's about time you got up" He said, his hands were empty so I guess he ate already. Looking at the clock, I realized it was almost noon.

"I'm the one who's pregnant so I can sleep for a long time if I feel like it, besides look who your talking about, our Alpha is still in dream land" I said, while watching SoYouThinkYouCanDance. I must admit I really liked the show, and no not because of the shirtless guys.

I heard the stairs creak abit and knew it was Jacob who came down. I looked behind myself and saw him rubbing the sleep out of his eyes. He looked over at me and smiled.

"If you guys are going to do something tell me now so I can leave" Seth said. He complained too much. When he gets a girlfriend, he'll be doing something too.

"Okay, I'll warn you Seth, you have one minute to leave the house or your brain cells will have to pay the price for it" Jacob said, Seth got up and ran out the door. I laughed almost dropping my empty plate on the carpet. Jacob sat right down beside me and put his arm around me, pulling me closer to him.

"Wow, I think hell has officially frozen over" Jacob commented. I said nothing just sighed. Alice had called and said she had a really early gift for me. I shook my head at the thought of what Alice had gotten me today.

"What's up?" Jacob asked, sounding worried. Sheesh it's as if every time I make a movement something is wrong.

"Nothing just thinking about how Alice said she had gotten me an early present, I'm not sure if I should be scared or not" I said, smiling. Jacob rubbed my arm, soothingly. This was the last month I was going to be thin.

Next month being my fourth month will bring eve more signs that I'm showing. The last time I went to Carlisle a couple days ago, I already noticed a tiny little baby bump. I smiled at that thought.

"Next month I get to become fat," I said. Jacob gave me a shocked look; almost as he, someone had just slapped him in the face.

"Leah, you could never be fat, I think even for the next six months you'll maintain your figure," he said, for a guy he sure was smart. I just sighed; looking at the clock, I saw we had to meet Alice in an hour.

"Jacob we should get dressed, I don't want to deal with what Alice will do if we're late," I said, taking myself out of his grasp. I put my plat down on the couch and stretched. It felt so great to stretch my stomach muscles.

"Here, I'll take your plate" Jacob said sarcastically. I hit him on the shoulder. Walking upstairs, I shut my door loud enough for Jacob to hear. If he came in here without knocking, he might not make it to the Cullen's house.

I got dressed in a pair of jeans and a navy blue Hollister top. I'm sure Alice would be fine with what I'm wearing, not that I cared if she didn't. I brushed through my dark hair; it was now almost halfway to my back. Jacob let me keep it long.

Looking in the mirror, I swear I felt tears spring up in my eyes. Looking at myself, I still couldn't get over the fact that in six months I was going to be a mom. I felt the tears trickle down my face as my legs gave out beneath me.

"Leah?" Jacob's voice came from outside my door. The next thing I knew he was in my room. Just staring at me in shock.

"Leah, what happened?" He asked, walking over to me and getting on his knees. I didn't say anything, I couldn't say anything at all. I just kept crying.

"Come on honey, tell me what's wrong" Jacob said, his voice soft as he wrapped his arms around me shaking body.

"I can't do this," I said. His hand was rubbing my arm, and I felt safe.

"What can't you do?" He asked. I couldn't wipe away my tears any more. They had been waiting to come out for so long.

"Take care of them; I can't be a mother, it's too much Jacob," I cried into his chest. Yes, he was shirtless but that didn't matter now. There was a long silence between us.

"Leah, you can do this, you're the strongest girl I've ever met in my whole life plus your not in this alone, I'm here for you, so is your mom and your brother, both of the packs and the Cullen's, trust me Leah, you can do this" Jacob soothed me. The tears were stopping now.

Stupid fucking emotions, sometimes they make me feel like an idiot. I finally stopped crying and let Jacob help me up. He still didn't let go of me, no, he kept hugging me. Whispering that everything was going to be all right.


"Come on only a couple more steps" Alice said, guiding Jacob and I down some kind of path. I swear it was times like this where I'm glad I'm nothing like Bella.

"Okay! We're here! You can take off the blindfolds," Alice said. I took my off and looked directly in front of myself. My jaw dropped, Jacob was just staring in shock.

It was a house.

"Alice…"Was all I could say. I was shocked; I could not believe the sight in front of me at all.

"To answer your questions, yes this house is for you guys," Edward said. Jacob looked at him.

"Are you serious?" he asked. Edward nodded.

"This is our gift, we thought that with the two little babies on the way you'd like a bigger home" Rosalie said. I swear I could pass out. Not that I would, I'm sure that would worry everyone.

"Want to go inside?" Renesmee asked. I nodded. Once the door was open, I swear I died and went to heaven.

The carpet was the perfect shade of beige, flat screen TV. attached to the wall. There were three couches surrounding that area. They were night black and looked pretty expensive. Just beyond that was a kitchen, and it was amazing. everything was like stainless fucking steel.

"If you like this you might want to check out the bedroom" Edward said.

"Is it as amazing as this?" I asked.

"Even more amazing, come on you'll see" Esme said. They had done everything; I can't even imagine a better job then this.

I was wrong. As soon as we came into the bedroom, I could have sworn I was dreaming about all of this. Smack in the middle of the room was a queen-sized bed. A bathroom, walk-in closet, evens a balcony were also included. This place was amazing.

"The room was designed by Jasper and Alice by the way," Edward said. No fucking way! This room was amazing.

"I can't accept this," I said.

"Yes you can, we made it just for you guys," Alice said.

"Yeah, and we don't offer refunds" Emmett said. I laughed; this house had to have cost a lot of money to make.

"Besides, when the little things are born, you'll need a bigger place to stay," Rosalie added. She was right there would need to be more room for us to put the cribs in for the babies.

"Yes, and us girls we'll be helping you buy baby things, we tried to talk the guys into it but…"Alice said shooting glares at Edward, Jasper, Emmett, and Carlisle.

"Shopping with you girls, plus Leah's girls….we would rather watch paint dry," Edward said.

"Yes you can move into her tomorrow," Edward said. I gasped this was way beyond perfect. I swear my life seemed about a zillion times better now; I couldn't even be bitchy about it.

"Thank you so much" I said, Alice was the first to hug me. Then after wards, everyone joined in. Soon enough all the Cullen's left so that Jacob and I could look around some more. I had to admit, I was madly in love with this house.

"It is nice isn't it," Jacob said coming up from behind me.

"Yeah, it is, now I'll have more room to put the baby things" I said, he hugged me. He was doing that a lot lately, only 'cause he felt really bad about this situation.

"You mean we'll have more room" he corrected me. I laughed, sheesh he was taking this whole guilt trip pretty well. Okay fine, it could be an us thing. Plus it's not like I can lift everything myself.

"The only reason you're still around besides being the father is because I'm going to be too lazy to do anything and I need some muscle" I said. He smiled, and kissed my lips.

Safe. Loved. Protected. Happy.

These emotions was how Jacob always magically made me feel. I know sounds so unlike me, but then again that was before I got a house, and a family. Nothing could ruin this.

At least not yet.
