A Bridge Too Hard to Cross

Pains and Nightmares

Jacob's POV

"Hey babe" I said to Leah as I walked down the halls of the hospital. Leah called and said Emily had gone into labor and her and my sister's were going to be at the hospital.

"Hey Jake" She said, sounding tired. I walked over and sat down next to her putting an arm around her.

"Awwww" Rachael and Rebecca in unison. I rolled my eyes and pulled Leah a little closer towards me.

"So how was that talk with Renesmee?" Leah asked I knew she wanted to bash on her. Even if Leah liked Nessie, she still had a good time making fun of her name.

"Better then I thought, she didn't hit me or anything like that she even said she understands the reason I told her I couldn't be with her, I was surprised by the fact that she still wants to be my friend" I told the girls.

"It took you long enough to get here Jacob" Rachael complained. I rolled my eyes, and sighed.

"Well, some of the Cullen's wanted to talk with me and then when I got the phone call about Emily I said I had to go and they held me there for around twenty minutes" I explained.

"Well Emily had been in labor for around four hours, I guess Sam called us during it because I heard a scream, which I'm guessing was from Emily" Rebecca said. Leah leaned further into me and I knew something was wrong.

"Leah, what's wrong" I asked which grabbed my sister's attentions. Leah shook her head. I let my head fall back and I groaned.

"Giving birth to the little ones is going to a pain in the vaginal area if you know what I mean," She said. I laughed, okay big mistake cause soon after I received three slaps to the face by Rachael, Rebecca and Leah.

"Okay, ow I'm sorry; it will be a major pain for you and for my hand" I said, they all just shook their heads, sheesh sometime I thought the three of them shared a brain.

Renesmee's POV

"Mom! You don't understand you never do!" I shouted at my mother. I was happy my father at least would first listen to my side of things before blowing up.

"I never understand do I? Well tell me whose fault is this mess yours or Jacobs?" She asked. I gasped and took a step back. I mean I was hurt by the fact that Jacob had slept with Leah but they were drunk!

"Bella, love that was not necessary, what went down between Jacob and Leah wasn't his fault," My father said, getting up and putting a hand on my mother's shoulder.

"Nice to see whose side you're on Edward," She said and stomped up the stairs, we soon heard the slamming of a door.

"Don't worry Renesmee, no one is at fault here and I know Jacob only did what he did because he cares about you." My father told me, I smiled and hugged him

"Dad, you think mom will hurt Leah again?" I asked worry knotting up my stomach. I pulled away from my father as his calm golden eyes met my freighted chocolate brown ones.

"No, I'm sure you're mother wouldn't go that far as to hurt her once more but when Leah comes here next time I'll make sure that your mom is going to behave" My father said, smiling I laughed as he walked up the stairs to go check on my mother.

I went and sat back on the couch sighing I let my head fall back against the headrest. I sighed and closed my eyes I need some sleep.

Leah's POV

"He's so adorable!" I said, looking down at Daniel Eric Uley. Emily didn't take her eyes off the small baby.

"I know, he's just the cutest little thing," Emily said, kissing Daniel's forehead. Sam was outside talking with some of the guys except Jacob. I was leaning into Jacob and he had his arm wrapped around me.

"I see a lot of you in Daniel," Jacob said, I nodded yeah the baby did have Emily's face. I yawned it was around eight at night and I was so fucking tired. Jacob rubbed his hand up and down my arm and kissed the top of my head.

"Leah, if you need to you can go home, I mean you look really tired and you should get some sleep," Emily said, her face turning into one of concern. I felt two sets of really hard kicks and moaned.

Jacob was in front of my and holding me up, Emily bent forward slightly the look of concern deepening.

"No. I'm..." Another two sets of hard kicks and I gasped aloud. Jacob wrapped his arms around me and pulled me into him. I got my breath back and looked at Emily.

"I'm sorry, but yeah I think…I'll go home, god damnit Black why were you born with such energy," I said, him and Emily laughed.

"Ask my dad, he'll know how it all went down," He said as we made our way to the door, I turned around to face Emily.

"See you in a couple days then and um…congrats," I said before we slipped out. Jacob and I didn't Sam or the guys anywhere. I shook my head as we made our way out of the hospital.


"Yeah, I guess we can check it out with Leech Doctor" I said to Jacob. We were in bed, and just as I was on the verge of falling asleep Jacob chose to ask a question. He's just so smart sometimes.

"They stopped already right?' Jacob asked, he seemed to mature a lot in the past couple months. I guess his little guilt trip made him…act like a guy his age?

"Yeah…they calmed down I still have no idea what happened but I'm fucking tired and I want to go to sleep so no more questions!" I raised my voice at him.

Sleep took over me in a short few seconds and my dreams consisted of Jacob….naked.

I was in the forest, it was dark and it was freaking me out. I mean I'd been here all the time but right now, it seemed almost different as if something was wrong. In my dream, I was pregnant, big shocker there!

"Hello Leah" A cool voice said. I knew who it was and it sent a shiver up my spine, funny how in a dream you can feel shit like that

I turned around to see Bella Cullen only about a couple steps away from me. The look on her face just told me, she wanted to hurt me.

"Leah Leah… you won't get away with what you did to break up my daughter and Jacob you're gonna pay for your action…with you're life" It was then I noticed the butcher knife in her hand.

My eyes widened, she was going to damn well try to kill me. My hand automatically flew to my stomach and Bella laughed.

"Jacob can't save you now Leah, your finally gonna get what you deserve!" She shouted running at me and bringing the knife down. The last thing I saw was black.

I shot up and screamed my lungs out. Jacob was up in a second and was looking around him till he found me.

"What's wrong" he asked, wrapped his arms around me in a protective hug.

"I had a nightmare about Bella killing me in the forest and saying it was my fault for what went down between you and Renesmee," I said, still trying to calm myself down.

Jacob's kissed my cheek and pulled me in a bit closer, I buried my head into the side of his neck.

"Don't worry babe, I'll never let her hurt you or the little buggers if she even tries she'll have me to deal with" Jacob said rubbing my arm. I nodded and kept my head nestled into his neck.

"I love you Jacob Black"

"I love you too Leah Clearwater"
