Chapter 4: Jacob’s Suicide Mission…(lol) (From Jacob’s POV)
As I walked up to the front door, I felt oddly nervous. If it were 6 years il y a I would not have been comfortable walking up to a house owned par a vampire unless it involved me ripping them to pieces, but salut things change. Edward and I have actually gotten close since I stood with him and his family to protect Renesmee from the Volturi, we are on friendly terms; that along with the fact that both he and Bella know that I have imprinted on Renesmee. Yet, this knowledge did nothing to ease the nervousness I felt as I contemplated the reason for my visit. Edward met me at the door and growled, “I know why toi are here Jacob and I don’t like it.”
“Look, toi told me that once she was fully grown I could ask her-” Bella came to the doorway at that point I paused doubtfully as I noticed that both she and Edwards’s eyes were black and not the golden shade that they usually are. This in and of itself did not bode too well for me and my purpose. “Um, maybe I will come back later…” Edward had an amused grin on his face as he brazenly replied, “You mean, like after we hunt?” I hate that he can read my thoughts. He is always setting me up so that par the time I actually tell Bella something she is ready to attack me.
“Out with it Jake” Bella snapped, “I haven’t got all day.”
“Bella toi are pretty grumpy when toi are thirsty!” I attempted to joke with her; she glared at me so I gave up on my lame attempts at being funny to lighten her up. I proceeded, “Um, well now that she is going to be of age, I wanted yours and Edward’s permission to propose to Nessie on her birthday.”
“WHAT?!” Bella demanded, Edward on the other hand stayed very quiet and showed no emotion, the bloodsucker knew it was coming. Bella stormed on, “She is only a teenager Jake she’s not ready for that she doesn’t even think of toi in that way!” I calmly replied, “She will soon Bella don’t toi think that it is better for me to explain things to her first?” Bella snorted, “All Renesmee wants is to feel normal and toi are going to waltz up to her and pop a ring on her finger telling her that according to Quileute legend she is betrothed to you, and she will fall madly in l’amour with you?!” I smiled my brightest most convincing smile at her, “Yep that pretty much sums up my plans.” She narrowed her eyes at me and started taking little steps towards me as she spoke, ”No way Jacob she is already very upset regarding all of the confusion in her life right now.”
I squared my shoulders and looked her in the eyes, “Bella, Nothing that toi ou Edward say is going to change the future that Renesmee and I are destined to have together. It is going to happen whether toi like it ou not.” Bella snarled at me and crouched down as though she was going to attack. I braced myself; no matter how mad I was at her ou how stupid she was being I would never defend myself against Bella no matter how close she came to killing me. Edward surprised us all when he intervened, “Bella, my love, calm down. Jacob is just discussing things with us. We knew that this was coming.” Bella and I both looked at him in shock. She slowly stood back up and smoothed her clothes out; listening intently to what he had to say. When he could see that he had her full attention he continued, “What about a compromise Jacob? I understand how this has worked for your tribe in the past, but toi have to admit that Nessie is not your typical girl.” I had to agree with the bloodsucker there.
“Jacob I’m being very understanding I think that toi should refrain from thinking of me in such a rude manner.” Damn mind reader I thought to myself. He grinned for a moment and then continued, “What if toi simply talk to Renesmee explain things to her but don’t throw a proposal at her at the same time. toi and I both know that will not go over well she is very similar to her mother in how she reacts to shocking news.” Bella growled at him. Edward then took a step towards me until her was close enough for me to feel his breath on my face. He looked at me with chilling eyes and said, “but do understand that if toi EVER pressure my daughter into anything so help me-”
“Hey,” I cut him off, “calm down toi know I would never do anything like that I l’amour Renesmee and I have never wanted anything plus than for her to be happy; whether it’s with ou without me.” Bella had finally calmed down and she looked at me seriously, “Jake I l’amour you, I consider toi a part of my family and I appreciate absolutely everything toi have ever done for me and my daughter but please let her make her own choices.” I smiled at her and said, “Bells, all I am trying to do is inform Nessie of a choice that she never knew existed for her.” Bella conceded and nodded her approval. Edward had one plus condition for me though, “Jacob no matter what she says ou what happens she has at least one plus an here in high school, unengaged and unwed. Do I make myself clear?” I shook his hand in agreement, “I agree with toi I think that she needs it too, I have to go take care of a couple of things before I meet her to drive accueil with her.” I will see toi later. I ran off to go phase before they could change their minds, and as I thought of Renesmee I made sure to keep my thoughts as pure as possible since I was guaranteed to have an audience.
