"Momma. I want to go back down stairs." Sarah was sitting on her bed, her back against the wall.
"I know." I sighed. "But Daddy is talking to Seth right now so we are going to stay up here untill they are done."
She sighed and leaned her head against the wall.
I listened to Jacob and Seth down stairs.
"So that's how it works?" Seth asked.
"Yea." Jacob sighed.
"Cool." I could hear the smile in Seth's voice.
"Look, I'm really sorry if you're mad at me but toi know, I couldn't controll it. I didn't even know what was going on."
"Yea, I know. I'm not mad at you, though." I heard Jacob settle back down on the couch.
"Can I see her now?" Seth's voice was anxious.
"Sure, sure." I heard Jacob's footsteps untill they stopped at the door. "We're done." He opened the door and walked over to Sarah.
"You can go down and see Seth now."
She got up and ran down stairs. I put my head back and closed my eyes. "He imprinted." It wasn't a question.
"Yea." Jacob's voice was closer now. I opened my eyes to see him standing behind me. He bent down to Kiss me and I stood up.
"It's not so bad. At least Seth's a good kid."
"You found me!" Seth's voice carried up the stairs along with Sarah's giggle.
I couldn't help but smile at her giggle. "And at least she's in good hands. He's got a good head on his shoulders. And he doesn't want to kill her." I smirked and walked out of the room.
"That's not fair." Jacob chuckled.
Seth had Sarah on his shoulders spining her around. "Woah." Sarah giggled. "Now I'm dizzy."
Seth laughed and sat down on the couch, sitting Sarah on his knee.
"Would toi like to stay for dinner?" I asked Seth as I walked into the kitchen.
"Yea, sure. Thanks."
After we put Sarah in her nightgown, she wouldn't let us put her in the lit untill she went downstairs to tell Seth good night.
"Will toi be here tomorrow?" Sarah was sitting on his knee again.
"As soon as I get off work." He promised.
"Kay." She hopped down and Jake picked her up. "Night."
"Night Sarah." As Jacob and Sarah dissapered into her room Seth stood up and walked over to me.
"I'm gonna' head home. See toi tomorrow." He hugged me and walked over to the door.
"Bye. Be careful." I told him. He waved and closed the door behind him.
The rest of the week Seth was over everynight. We were running low on nourriture now and I had already been to the store three times. And I couldn't blame it all on the guys, because I was eating for four.
Sarah was with Seth at Sue's and Grandpa Charlie's. Jacob had gotten a job at the car boutique and I was stuck at accueil par myself. Mom stopped par everyother jour to give me some company and today was one of those days.
"How have toi been feeling?" She was sitting beside me on the canapé while I munched on some chips.
"Tired." I sighed. "I just wish they would come out already." I smiled.
"Be careful what toi wish for." Bella smiled with me.
"I just can't wait to see them. I'm excited."
"Good. toi should be." Bella laughed, only it sounded plus like bells than a laugh. "Well, I best get back to Edward. I l’amour you."
She kissed my head and walked to the door. "Love toi too, Mom."
She smiled and was gone before I could blink.
"Looks like it's just us again." I sighed and pushed myself up off the couch. I went to the cuisine and grabbed the ice cream out of the freezer. With in secondes the ice cream tub was on the floor and the phone was in my hand.
"Quil! Get Jake on the phone!" I gasped.
"Sorry, Nessi. He's busy."
"NOW!" I gasped again and held par breath waiting for the pain to pass.
"Okay, jeez. Jake!" Jake's name was muffled as he yelled away from the phone.
"Jake." I finally had l’espace were I could talk. "You have to come home." I gasped again as another pain ripped through me.
"Nessi, I'm kind of busy."
I spoke through clenched teeth. "Unless toi want me to give birth to these kids on the floor, toi best get home."
It took him a moment to register what was happeneing and Quil was the one who answered back.
"Well, he just dropped the phone and sprinted out the door."
"Okay. Thanks." I sighed and hung up.
The door flung open and Seth walked in with Sarah. "She told me." He a dit and put her down.
"Sarah." I looked at her. "Go back your bag okay? Get two outfits and two pairs of pajamas." She nodded and took off up the stairs. "Could go go help her? Her bags are on the haut, retour au début shelf. I don't think she can reach them."
"Sure." Seth followed after her.
"Renesmee!" Mom flew over to me. "Are toi okay?"
I nodded. "Yea I'm fine. Did toi tell Carlisle."
"No not yet. I wanted to make sure first. I will go now." She picked me up and laid me down on the couch. "I'll be right back." She kissed my head and walked out as soon as Jacob walked in.
"Hey." She came and sat par my head. "Need something?"
He knew from experince not to say ou do to much.
"Water." I gasped. He nodded and went into the kitchen.
I heard Sarah coming down the stairs. "I want to carry it."
"Sarah, it's heavy." Seth told her.
I heard her sigh. "Fine." She gave up.
She walked over to me and sat down on the coffee table. "Are toi okay?"
"I'm fine." I smiled reasuringly. "You're going to stay at Gradma Sue's and Grandpa Charlie's for a couple days."
"Okay. Do I get to come accueil when the bébés get here?"
"Of course." I nodded.
She walked over to me and kissed my cheek. Something I always did to her. "Bye, Momma. I l’amour you."
"I l’amour toi too." I told her.
"See ya', Nessi." Seth picked up Sarah.
"Bye. Watch her!" I smiled.
He snorted and rolled his eyes. "I got this."
I laughed and waved goodbye to Sarah as the door closed. Jacob came back with my water in his hands. He gave it to me and sat down, pulling my feet onto his lap.
It was quiet for a moment then the door flew open and Carlisle, Edward, and Bella were running up and down the stairs with medical equipment. As soon as I saw the two incubaters my cœur, coeur flew into a nervous frenzy.
One baby will be completely healthy, but the other two wil not. The smallest germ here could possibly kill them. My breathing turned into quick gasps. Dad was beside me within seconds. "Bella!" Edward called and she blured into view. "Clean everything. Sanitize everything!" He caught my thoughts before my gasps turned into a full blown pancice attack.
It clamed my breathing, but not my heart. They would still be in utter complete danger being three months premature.
"It's going to be alright." Dad's cool hand ran across my clamy fourhead. "Carlisle know's what he is doing."
I nodded, not trusting my voice.
He had me upstairs and on the medical lit before Jacob even knew what had happened.
We were in a room I didn't even know we had. It was plain, just like the bébés room's were before. Only this room was bigger. It was a hospital room. Everything the bébés and I needed was in the room.
"Kaelem is to big. I'm going to have to do a C-Section." Carlisle's spoke in a sure voice.
I looked at Jake's face, knowing it was a relfection of my own; fear, anxiety.
Carlisle placed a breathing tube in my nose and stuck a few needles in my arm. Jacob winced with me as he had felt them too.
"Where is Alice?" I asked.
"I'm right here." She called and fluttered to my side. "I'm here." She kissed my fourhead and dissapeard behind the sheet that was sepreating my chest from my stomach.
"You are going to feel pressure, but no pain." Carlisle's voice came from behind the curtin.
The pressure was slight, barley noticeable.
There was a wailing cry and Alice spoke. "Kaelem."
"Here." Edward's voice.
"Kaela." Alice again.
"I will take her." Bella's voice.
"Kaeleb." Alice. "I will take him. toi stitch Nessi up."
There was only one cry. Kaeleb's. I could feel the silent tears stream down either side of my face and dissapear into my hair.
Jacob squeezed my hand and looked down at me.
I closed my eyes and hoped that there would be two plus cries. There was nothing but quietness. Edward had Kaelem swaddled in a blanket and in Jacob's arms. But my arms were empty. My cœur, coeur sank and I waited once more, not breathing.
Twenty-six secondes later two ear peircing crys broke the silence and I let out a sigh in relief.
